Tagaloa is a 6-foot-8 guard who has battled injuries during his time with the Wildcats, but has terrific strength. At Arizona’s pro day, he did 41 bench press reps, more than anyone who attended the NFL Combine.
In 2016, he made Bruce Feldman’s list of “freaks” in college football.
“He set records at Arizona for his 475-pound bench and doing 38 reps at 225 pounds. “He’s a bad man,” said Arizona great Scooby Wright. “He also has that first one in/last one out mentality.”
