Bio: 
Four-year starter who missed the first three games of the 2016 season due to suspension for a violation of program standards and tallied 39 tackles (4.5 for loss) and an interception in seven contests. Made 90 tackles (20 for loss) with 4.5 sacks in 2015. Named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 as a sophomore after ranking fourth on the team with 83 tackles and second with 11 for loss, adding 3.5 sacks. Redshirt freshman totals include 71 tackles (5.5 for loss) and three sacks.
Pos: 
Solid run-defending linebacker with poor size and speed. Plays with the warrior-type mentality, crashes upfield and sells out to make the tackle. Very aggressive, squares and wraps up ball carriers and drives through tackles. Displays a straight-line burst of speed, sells out on the blitz and gets depth on pass drops.
Neg: 
Does not consistently break down properly or play with knee bend. Easily blocked from the action. Gets caught up in the trash. Average ball skills.
Analysis: 
Fiso was graded as a potential late-round draft pick entering the season, but he’s a small two-down defender with limited upside.
