Doesn't do a great job sitting into his stance off the snap and too easily allows himself to get too upright into contact. Struggles to keep his pad level down through the play, lacks great hand placement and isn't real sudden laterally when asked to disengage or keep himself clean. Also fails to gain leverage when trying to push the pocket and allows opposing defenders to easily get inside and under his frame at the point.
Possesses some natural strength in his upper and lower body vs. the run game. Does a nice job getting his hands up quick into blocks off the football and has a decent first step when he gets off the ball in time. However, doesn't have the ability to consistently disengage on contact and make a play on the ball carrier. Is easily sealed from the play and doesn't have much suddenness or know how to defeat opposing blockers and despite his big, strong stature he doesn't make many plays vs. the pass game and seems lost at times in pursuit on slide down blocks off the football.
Impression: Physically he looks like an intriguing prospect; he just doesn't make many plays on the football or know how to defeat blocks. Could get a shot as a free agent because of his physical stature, but isn't much of a player at this stage."
Positive: Big-bodied interior lineman who flashes skill but shows minimal consistency. Quick off the snap, fights throughout the action, and is tough to move off the point. Built low to the ground and keeps his feet moving up the field. Changes direction well.
Negative: Gets tall as the play proceeds, makes himself an easy target, and can be controlled by a single blocker. Must improve the use of his hands. Marginal instincts and slow locating the ball. Minimally productive in college.
Analysis: Aaitui looked like a top prospect in the making after sophomore season but never improved his game. He has the skills necessary to be used on the inside of a four-man line but must take every aspect of his game to another level."
