Scouting Report
A key component of a pair of prolific TCU offenses, Vaitai earned second team All-Big 12 honors as the Horned Frogs' regular right tackle in 2014 and repeated the feat after shifting to the left side as a senior. A move to guard may be necessary for the native Texan to carve out a pro career, however, as he lacks the foot speed, fluidity and overall athleticism to effectively neutralize NFL speed rushers. Vaitai does have a strong lower body and moves well enough to make an impact as a run blocker, and his intelligence - arguably his best trait - suggests he may be able to make a successful switch inside. He's technically sound and adept at recognizing stunts and blitzes, rarely getting caught out of position. Vaitai's length and solid weight distribution are also positives, though his tall frame can create leverage issues by leaving him susceptible to power rushes due to improper pad level. All in all, Vaitai is a project whose size and football savvy could get him drafted in the late rounds, and he should at least earn a camp invite with a reasonable opportunity to transition to a new position on a practice squad.
