Vai Taua

School: Nevada
Position: RB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Rushing totals last season included 284/1610/19 with 18/226/3 as a receiver. Junior numbers on the ground were 172/1345/10 with 12/99/3 as a receiver. Finished his sophomore campaign with 1521 yards on the ground.
Positive: Compact ball carrier who displays skill running between the tackles. Possesses good vision, finds the cutback lanes, and slides through the small creases of the defense. Quickly gets through the hole, runs low to the ground, and does not go down without a fight. Keeps his feet moving on contact, runs through arm tackles, and falls forward when brought to the ground. Always keeps the play inbounds, working to pick up positive yardage. Possesses some short-area quickness and has a darting style with the ability to elude defenders. Cognizant of ball security.
Negative: Does not have long speed and cannot beat defenders into the open field. Loses momentum when he must quickly change direction. Does not always run with good balance.
Analysis: Taua has been a productive runner on the college level since his sophomore campaign and has shown versatility. He's a small back who plays big and has enough ability to be used as a rotational ball carrier.
