Overview:

I love this pick very much. Tuli has a great skillset to build upon. Such raw power and his swim move are almost impossible to stop. The crazy thing about Tuli is that he posted a stunning 13.5 sacks in 2022. Insane stats for a junior. With Tuli, you are going to get a great run-stopper, who can hit the offensive line gaps really well. Tuli has experience at every alignment on the defensive line. So I imagine he will be playing DT alongside Joseph-day. Tuli is incredibly smart and can read RPOs and Read options insanely well. However, one concern with Tuli is his true athleticism. Posting a 4.97 40-yard dash, it is a slow time for an edge. But as I said before, he will more than likely be playing DT for us. Alongside that, he does have a problem with tackling. He can read plays well, but his pursuit angles and tackling fundamentals needs a lot of work. Nonetheless, the Chargers just drafted a Power run-stopping demon for the trenches.
