Lotulelei and Ngata compare favorably when you look at their physical traits and natural athletic ability. The difference is that Ngata was a more consistently dominant player coming out of Oregon, while Lotulelei has shown only flashes of dominance. He's big, strong and explosive, but to become an impact player at the next level, Lotulelei must improve his hand use, play with more consistent leverage and bring it on every down from an effort standpoint. -- Todd McShay
