It's only a matter of time before Daniel Faalele coins the nickname, "Monster from Minnesota." The Golden Gopher offensive tackle weighs 384 pounds and measures at a towering 6-foot-8. He's the "immovable object" meeting the "unstoppable force" John Madden preached about all these years.
The traits are there for Faalele to be a franchise tackle in the NFL, but it might take some seasoning. After all, he's only been playing football since 2016 aftering spending the majority of his life in Australia.
But the progression and growth Faalele has displayed - improved PFF blocking grade all three years at school - suggests he is just scratching the surface of his potential. Also worth noting that with his limited playing experience Faalele is best suited to continue playing at right tackle to start as he did at the college level.
