Bio: 
Two-year starter at center. Served as a backup offensive tackle during his first two seasons at USC.
Pos: 
Underrated center prospect with starting potential at the next level. Explosive at the point, fires off the snap and stays with assignments. Keeps his feet moving and his head on a swivel and works well with teammates. Stays square, sets with a wide base and works to bend his knees. Fights with his hands and seals defenders from the action. Effective with shotgun snaps.
Neg: 
Lacks footwork in space. Not an agile blocker, which hurts his ability to finish off opponents. Prior back injuries may raise red flags.
Analysis: 
Falah was a consistent player the past two seasons and comes with NFL size and toughness. If he stays healthy and improves his playing strength, he could develop into a late-round starter.
