Bio: 
Three-year starter who spent his final two college seasons at Oklahoma State after UAB dissolved its football program. Started every game at left tackle for the Cowboys in 2015 and 2016 and was named Second Team All-Big 12 in 2016. Started all 12 games on the left side in his final season with UAB.
Pos: 
Large right tackle prospect with a good degree of upside. Sets with a wide base, keeps his feet moving and displays solid footwork for big blocker. Strong, turns opponents from the action and stays square. Shows a good degree of quickness in his game and keeps his head on a swivel.
Neg: 
Does not bend his knees or block with leverage. Lacks mobility and gets exploited by speed rushers. Bends at the waist, which adversely affects his balance. Must do a better job using blocking angles.
Analysis: 
Salako is a size prospect who flashed ability the past two seasons, yet he’s an offensive lineman who must learn to play with proper pad level and do more than arm wrestle opponents.
