Elite athleticism and instincts for the position. Moves with ease and plays with a purpose, not wasting any motion. One of the quickest off the ball in the entire class, and his flexibility at the position would allow him to be successful anywhere up front. Not going to play with overpowering strength. Built his reputation on his agility, not his power. It shows when attempting to anchor and pull together combo blocks. Struggled to really set with his hands, allowing defenders to rip away at the point of attack.

OVERVIEW: One of the most decorated linemen in Huskies history, Fautanu was named an AP All-American and was the recipient of the 2023 Morris Trophy, given to the Pac-12's top offensive lineman. He was a force, starting in all 15 games for the national runner-up, totaling 845 snaps and just two sacks allowed. Played against some of the top defensive linemen in the country during Washington's non-conference, Pac-12 and College Football Playoff slate. His battle-tested résumé will go a long way for teams looking to add a starter up front.

COMPARISON: Charles Cross
