Dirty Bird Draft Radar: 350-lbs. With Track Speed? Vita Vea Is NFL Draft’s Top Freak!

SEATTLE — Vita Vea‘s position coach at Washington, Ikaika Malloe, had seen the massive defensive tackle pull off all sorts of improbable athletic feats for over two seasons. So he was used to it when he saw Vea, covering a punt in his final college game, sprint some 40 yards to take down the returner with an open-field tackle.

At 6-foot-4 and 347 pounds, mind you.

“By that time, there’s not really anything he can do to shock me anymore,” Malloe told ESPN.com last month. “You kind of just shrug your shoulders and say, ‘Yep, I’m not surprised by it.’ He does things that normally people of his size should not be doing. But he does it with such ease that you take it for granted. You kind of get used to him doing those types of things. He’s got footwork like a linebacker or even a DB. He can backpedal with the best of them and change direction and flip his hips. In the beginning, maybe a year ago … that’s kind of when I was in awe of things, just of what he can do and that type of stuff.” READ MORE>
