2024 NFL Draft: Kingsley Suamataia Draft Profile and Scouting Report

Kingsley Suamataia first saw significant playing time in 2022, following a transfer from the University of Oregon. Made an impact immediately as the team’s right tackle. Received multiple first and second-team honors following his first year on campus at BYU. Should have a much larger impact with another full season under his belt.

Kingsley Suamataia 40 Time

Projected 40 Time: 5.00 seconds

Kingsley Suamataia is a one-year starter at right tackle for the Brigham Young Cougars following a transfer from the University of Oregon, where he redshirted for a season. He possesses good height and solid weight for the offensive tackle position in the NFL. Our projected 40 time of 5.00 seconds is several tenths quicker than the league average for offensive tackles.

Suamataia displays a good quickness out of his stance and ability to drive through opponents as a run blocker. Maintains a good pad level to establish leverage and open up gaps at the point of attack. Has solid footwork to slide out and handle suddenness off the edge. Further, he shows to have a very good anchor ability to handle power without losing ground in the pocket. He does a nice job of steering defenders where he wants them to go and frequently establishes and maintains leverage during the rep.

However, violent use of hands at the point of attack can be difficult for him to handle and control. He shows a poor ability to identify and attack defenders when asked to block at the second-level. Displays an adequate ability to stay engaged with the defender off the edge, as well as stay in front of him. Body bend and lean off the edge is an Achilles’ heel for him in pass protection. Does not handle evasive maneuvers inside well, either.
