Silatolu has generated a buzz in the scouting community and is one of the highest-ranked small-school prospects. He had a nice showing at the Combine to help his stock. Silatolu was beaten by Wayne State's Joe Long (younger brother of Jake Long) as the Gene Upshaw Division II Lineman of the Year. In the NFL, Silatolu should be a guard or right tackle. There were some thoughts that he could be a left tackle, but sources have stated that Silatolu should be at guard or right tackle. Some rank Silatolu as a potential first-rounder, but the consensus ranking has him in the second round.
