Tyson Alualu, DT, California

Despite a highly successful career at Cal, Alualu finds himself buried deep among a talented class of defensive tackles. As a four year starter, the 6-foot-3 DT started 39 consecutive games for the Golden Bears. He made his first start against Oregon State in the fifth game of his college career and never looked back, recording 16 tackles that season. Alualu became a more consistent presence inside during his sophomore campaign in 2007 registering 52 tackles, 3.5 for loss, with 2.5 sacks. He then had a breakthrough junior season in 2008 recording 62 tackles, 11 for loss, while gaining 6 sacks. His performance earned him Second Team All PAC-10 honors. Then he had an even more productive 2009 with 65 tackles, 11.5 for loss, and 7.5 sacks. Gets moving quickly at the snap, shooting the gap with energy. Tends to play with good leverage and stacks up blockers at the point; sheds them in time to make the tackle. Moves well into the backfield. Has quick footwork and hands. Is intelligent. Reads screens and draw passes well. However, lacks explosiveness. Average speed (5.10est) limits his pursuit ability; could be a bit inconsistent. Must learn to attack every play. Lacks pure, pass rushing skills. Must add bulk. Will have some trouble holding up at the point of attack against big NFL offensive linemen. A 3-4 end with good upside, Alualu does not make jaw-dropping plays, but is strong and productive. He is unlikely to be drafted as high as he will probably be rated, but in time will prove to be a better NFL player than many of the more highly touted defensive tackles who will be drafted ahead of him.
