Saia Falahola SI Grade 2.09 Grading System

Position: DT
Class: 5Sr
School: Arizona State
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-1
WT: 305
40 Time: 5.11
Biography: Two-year starter who posted 13 tackles and 2.5 for loss as a senior after junior numbers of 26/7.5/4.

Positives: Explosive one-gap tackle who plays hard until the whistle blows. Displays terrific quickness off the snap, plays with good pad level, and tough to move off the point. Works his hands throughout the action, keeps his feet driving up the field, and fluid moving in every direction. Shows a short-area burst of speed.

Negatives: Lacks strength at the point of attack and is very slow shedding blocks. Easily pushed aside by blockers.

Analysis: Falahola is a tough college defensive lineman who?s fallen under the radar in the scouting community. He possesses enough physical skills and intensity to be a backup on a four-man line and fill the role of a three-technique lineman.

Projection: FA
