2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Stephen Paea

Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State (6'1" 295 lbs.)

Positives: He's strong and athletic. He moves very well for a big guy and shows a great first step. He plays with extremely good power and uses his hands very well. He has the ability to get after the quarterback and can make stops in the running game. When he's on his game, he's unblockable with just one offensive lineman. He has a good work ethic and hustles every play. He's a raw talent with a lot of upside. He's only played football for a couple of years. Ridiculously strong, bench pressed 225 pounds a record breaking 49 times at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Negatives: He needs to improve his pass rushing skills. Doesn't have many pass rushing moves, has a tendency to rely on his upper body strength and bull rush. He needs to improve his technique. He misses too many tackles.
