Bio: 
Four-year starter at right guard. Named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 and started USC’s final 11 games as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Wide-bodied blocker with definite next-level potential. Explosive at the point, fires off the snap and quickly sets up in pass protection. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and always looks for someone to hit. Can slide in space and works his hands throughout the action. Big and strong enough to turn defenders off the line and opens running lanes.
Neg: 
Off-balance and haphazard in his movement. Struggles to block in motion. Gets narrow-based in his setup on occasion.
Analysis: 
Talamaivao was a consistent blocker the past four years and has enough ability to make a roster as a backup. He needs to slim down a bit and improve his playing balance but comes with nice upside.
