Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference and all-American honors the past two seasons. Totals last year included 119/1889/14 after he had 106/1590/8 as a junior. Sophomore totals of 2008 included 57/831/3.
Positives: "Strong, reliable receiver who is one of the top possession receivers available. Fluid releasing off the line, quickly gets into routes, and stays low on exit, coming back to the ball. Extends his hands, adjusts to the errant throw, and makes the difficult catch with defenders draped on him. Immediately transitions from making the catch to running after the reception. Plays smart football, comes back into the open space of the defense, and makes himself an available target. Has reliable hands with terrific focus and concentration. Effective running after the reception, making defenders miss in the open field and keeping plays inbounds to pick up yardage. Gives effort blocking downfield."
Negatives: More quick than fast and does not have the speed or ability to run to the long throw. Occasionally takes his eyes off the ball.
Analysis: Salas has been a productive receiver the past three years and showed the ability to be dominant with regularity. He possesses the skills to be a third receiver at the next level and would do well in a variety of systems as an underneath receiver.
