BIOGRAPHY: Four-your starter awarded all-Conference honors after his freshman and sophomore campaigns. Named Great West Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2008. Tackling totals last year included 32/7.5/5.5. Played in eight games during an injury plagued junior season posting 25/8.5/3.

POSITIVES: Faletoese is an intense and explosive lineman who goes hard until the whistle blows. A first move defender who must beat opponents off the snap, he offers the skills needed to play in a one-gap system.

NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk and easily handled by a single blocker on the small-school level. For most part has been an average pass rusher in college.

ANALYSIS: Aggressive and explosive interior lineman who could be used as a three technique tackle. Displays outstanding first step quickness, fires off the ball and shoots through the gaps of the offensive line. Plays with leverage getting underneath opponents, displays an array of moves and shows terrific hand technique, working them throughout the action. Rarely off his feet, pushes his way up the field and wedges between blockers to make the play. Displays a burst of closing speed and plays with a good degree of suddenness.
