Draft Scout Snapshot:DS Rating on 8/24/08: #10 OT, #95/750 Overall, Projected Rnd: 4 2007: The decision to redshirt the 2006 junior college transfer proved to be a good one as not only did he move into the starting lineup for 12 of 13 appearances, the Ducks will benefit from his returning experience in 2008. Was named to the Pacific-10 Conference's all-league second team in his first year of exposure to conference coaches, helping pave the way for Oregon's school record-setting rushing attack while aiding its pass protection scheme that finished fourth (tie) in the league in fewest QB sacks allowed (24) from his left tackle outpost. Won the Jimmy Rogers, Jr. Most Valuable Lineman award at the Sun Bowl after shutting down South Florida's Walter Camp All-American DE George Selvie in the Ducks' lopsided victory. Stepped onto the field for more than 90 snaps in two of the his last four appearances of the season (including 98 plays at Arizona)...2006: Experienced offensive line afforded him the luxury redshirting the season, preserving two years of eligibility while refining his skills to become more effective in the future...JC: The honorable mention All-American (J.C. Grid- Wire) ranked 34th in the country among junior college recruits by Rivals. com. Helped pave the way for the Wolverines to finish the regular season 12th in the state in total offense (430.7 avg.). The two-time all-Mid Empire Conference pick proved to be a dominant force along the offensive line at tackle yet possesses the athleticism to play either tackle or guard in Oregon's offense which places a premium on strength up the middle.
Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 5/159 -- Fenuki Tupou, OT, 6-5, 314, Oregon...Tupou has good size and strength. He's not a technician as a blocker, but has backup potential. Played left tackle for an Oregon teams that led the Pac-10 in total offense the past two seasons. - by The Sports Xchange
