Overview:

Fanaika has nice size to play defensive end in a 4-3 system. He is a decent pass rusher, and has nice spin move to get around the tackle. He was a tackling machine for Utah. On the other hand, he is not known for getting the quarterback and sacking him, and he has issues with bigger offensive lineman at the line of scrimmage. With that said, I see Faniaka being a late round pick.
