Sports Illustrated Called Him Underrated, DUH!

Underrated: Lofa Tatupu, USC
Just like Patterson, Tatupu was an indispensable figure in the Trojans' recent success, particularly last season, when he led the team in tackles (104), intercepted three passes and forced three fumbles. He makes plays, often game-changing ones, all over the field. Scouts, however, are likely fixated on his height (just under 6 feet) and lack of natural athleticism. He is, after all, a classic overachiever who began his college career in obscurity at I-AA Maine. But there's no denying Tatupu's impeachable instincts and playmaking abilities, not to mention NFL genes (his father, Mosi, played for 14 seasons). Linebacker would seem to be the one position where all those things would be particularly beneficial.
