It’s incredible what Kingsley did at the Scouting Combine. His 6-foot-5 frame charted a 5.04-second 40-yard dash. Pair that with his overpowering play strength and he brings an exciting combo to the pros. Fantastic burst off the line of scrimmage and shows range of motion. Really struggled to find consistency with his hands and upper-body technique. Would get turned around in his pass sets and overextended on blocks that left him vulnerable. Lots to work on as a pass blocker in general to even him out as a prospect.

OVERVIEW: While Suamataia's strength is elite, his technique is not. This makes him a high risk, high reward prospect that has a thin line between unlimited upside and a possible bust. Luckily for him, he's already shown that his power is enough to have solid production. Suamataia transferred to BYU from Oregon as a sophomore and immediately worked into the starting rotation with over 600 snaps. Then he entered his junior year with the sixth-highest blocking grade among returning offensive tackles (PFF). A number he'd improve upon in 2023.
