Daniel Faalele Draft Profile and Scouting Report

Strengths

Obviously, Daniel Faalele possesses rare size, standing at 6-8 and nearly 400 pounds. With this size, he brings tremendous strength, possibly being the strongest player in the 2022 NFL Draft. He is also, unsurprisingly, an anchor in pass protection, with nobody able to move him backward. Faalele only began playing football when he came to America, which was five years ago, so he has the potential to learn more and get better.

Weaknesses

He’s a massive man, and he plays like it in the worst ways. Faalele has poor footwork and has zero idea what to do with his hands. Most of his weaknesses are a product of terrible coaching at Minnesota, which is par for the course with former Gophers, but it’s extremely obvious with Faalele. He has limited experience with different dropback protections, due to the scheme at Minnesota. Faalele also doesn’t show much of an aggressive side. He’s a big, strong, passive lineman.
