NFL Draft’s Potential Patriots: Hawaii WR Greg Salas

WEEI.com will continue to offer daily insight and analysis regarding options that may be available to the Patriots when it comes to the 2011 NFL draft.

Greg Salas

Position: Wide Receiver

School: Hawaii

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 210 pounds

Achievements: Third-Team All-American (2010), First-Team All-WAC (2009, 2010), Two-time WAC Player of the Week, led WAC in receiving yards (2010). All-time school leader with 4,345 yards receiving.

What he brings: An ideal package of size, toughness and reliability. Salas does not have elite speed — a 4.6 40 is not a ticket to the first round — and won’t ever be a deep threat in the NFL. His only chance to stick is as a slot receiver, a role he excelled at for Hawaii (as Davone Bess did before him).

Where the Patriots could get him: Fourth or fifth round.

Notes: Salas had 17 catches for 30 or more yards in 2010, the highest total in the nation. His 4,345 yards receiving is not only a school record but the sixth-highest total in NCAA FBS history. Salas caught 13 passes for 214 and two touchdowns in his final collegiate game, a 62-35 loss to Tulsa at the 2010 Hawaii Bowl. The wideout did not improve his stock at the 2011 Senior Bowl, catching just a single pass for two yards.
