FB Manase Tonga Scouting Report

FB Manase Tonga, Brigham Young
Pos. Rank: 4 Grade: 7th Round-FA Height: 5-11 1/2 Weight: 245 40: 4.84 Year: 5-Sr.

The Good: One-dimensional lead of blocking fullback with an aggressive style. Plays with a nasty attitude, squares into defenders, and strong at the point of attack. Controls defenders once engaged in a block and works hard to whistle blows. Solid receiver out of the backfield extends his hands and plucks the ball from the air.

The Bad: Not much of a receiving threat. Does not play with 40 time.

The Verdict: Tonga is a lead blocker with marginal skills handling the ball. He would be a nice addition for a power running offense that does not require him to handle the ball much.
