Analysis

Siaki Ika, the mountain of a man from Baylor, is one of the most disruptive interior lineman in this years class. Ika, the 6’3″ 350lb tackle, is incredibly powerful and drives back opposing linemen, which causes him to command a double team from opposing offenses. He isn’t a great lateral mover, but as a nose tackle he doesn’t need to be. Ika has the ability to collapse pockets, stuff gaps, and just be a disruptive force in the middle. He is very good at what he needs to do as a nose, yet he is more complete than most noses. Ika has a decent arsenal of pass rush moves that set him apart from other nose tackles, but because of his athleticism he feels like only a two down player at the next level.
