Pos: 
Mammoth space-eating defensive lineman who projects to the nose tackle position. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step, plays with proper pad level and gets a lot of momentum going up the field. Displays power, penetrates gaps and gets behind the line of scrimmage to disrupt the action. Consistently double and even triple-teamed in the middle of the line and holds his ground. Explosive, displays good change of direction and moves well laterally in pursuit of the play. Intense, keeps his feet moving and plays hard through the whistle.
Neg: 
Occasionally gets tall when engaged with blockers, which neutralizes his size and strength. Seems to wear down at times. Must protect himself better, as he often has his legs taken out. On the ground too much. Has had significant weight fluctuations. Arrested for felony assault in December.
Analysis: 
Tiuli has the size and skill to play at the next level as either a nose tackle or gap-occupying lineman in a four-man front. He was in much better shape during his pro-day workout and can turn heads this summer if he consistently plays up to his ability.
