Strengths


  • Highly-experienced lineman (1,565 career snaps)

  • Tremendous athlete

  • High Football IQ

  • Ideal frame and length

  • Incredible mobility - short area and outside

Weaknesses:


One of his few weaknesses in his blocking is his tendency to reach due to questionable footwork, leading to balance issues. Though Fuaga does a good job maintaining a low pad level, at times he will stand too upright out of his stance and lose leverage throughout. On inside counters, Fuaga has issues resetting and framing. The reason for this again stems from poor football and being overly aggressive in these situations.
