DEEP FRIED DRAFT
Vita Vea is a dominant run defender. He is capable of single-handedly wrecking plays. The best position for Vea at the NFL level will likely be at nose tackle. I feel at this point he is a better prospect than his teammate last year Elijah Qualls. Unless Vea improves his pass rush this season, I will not be able to say that he is a top twenty prospect.
Vea does not offer much as a pass rusher.
DFD COOKBOOK RECIPE
Vita Vea is a scheme diverse defender. He lined up at every position of the Washington defense’s 34 front. Vea uses his hands well to split double teams which he faces constantly. He moves very well for someone of his size. Vea stacks up offensive linemen with ease and sheds them just as easily.
56 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 6 sacks, 2 FF
Today we are going to look at one of the top run stuffers available for the 2018 draft. Vita Vea arrived in Seattle by way of Milpitas HS in California. He was a three-star recruit. After redshirting his first year on campus, Vea played in all thirteen games as a redshirt freshman. He became one of the main cogs on the Husky defense as a redshirt sophomore. Vea had his best game against Stanford with three tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble. He has added over seventy pounds since arriving on campus.
2016: Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal, Southern Cal
