Strong Points

Massive size, naturally strong. Long arms. In the run game, he can generate some movement just because of his girth. Has a strong punch in pass protection to help control opponents. Tough to bull rush because of his size.

Weak Points

Plays tall, not a natural bender. Opponents get leverage because they are able to stay lower. Will overextend some. When that happens, his base narrows and he can fall off blocks. Doesn't have good recovery quicks.

The Way We See It

Salako started out at UAB where he redshirted as a freshman and then became a starter in 2013 and 2014 at left tackle. When UAB dropped football, he transferred to Oklahoma State and has been a two-year starter there. He is a smart player who knows how to use his size but he is limited athletically and could struggle at the next level with big-time rushers off the edge. Although he played on the left side in college, his only chance on the edge will be as a right tackle. Might also be able to play guard.
