Vita Vea 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Strengths, Weaknesses And Player Comparison

Check out Washington Huskies DT Vita Vea 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report and player profile, featuring strengths, weaknesses, player comparison, and projection. The 340-pound defensive tackle is one of the top players in this year's NFL Draft. He didn't light up the stat sheet with tackles for loss and sacks, but he was the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year because of his run-stopping and disruption. He will likely be a first round pick, but how does he project to the NFL?
