Draft Rewind 2011 – Stephen Paea – Chicago Bears

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about STEPHEN PAEA: Oregon State, 6012 303 5.00. Two-year starter. Junior college transfer. Consistently draws double teams and frees up other linemen across the front. Tough to single block with his strength and leverage. Plays low with a flat back. Thick and quick. Extremely strong arms and legs. A quick penetrator style like John Randle or Warren Sapp. Explosive push up the field on pass downs. A disruptive player who is quick enough to beat the snap. Must be accounted for and game plan specific. Gains an advantage with his first step quickness. Explodes and uncoils his hips with force. Stout inline play strength to stop the run. Plays on his feet. Strong enough to lock out and separate from blocker. An end to end player who can control blockers and pursue down the line. Can grab grass and split a double team. Fights through blockers to make a play. Productive in OSU’s scheme. Grew up in Tonga where he played rugby. Was the 2009 Morris Trophy winner, given annually to the PAC 10’s top defensive lineman as voted on by the league’s offensive linemen. Set a strength record at the Combine benching 225 pounds 49 times. Did not participate in the other parts of the workout because of his right knee that was injured in the Senior Bowl. 2010 stats: 45 tackles, 6 sacks, 10 TFL, 4 FF, 2 PBU. Late first/second round. (A-33 1/2, H-10 3/8, BP-49, 10-DNP).
