WitP: Greg Salas

Lots of reports from Senior Bowl practices, some bad but mostly good.

New York Times:
There’s a lot to like about Salas, and he had a solid performance in front of scouts. He does a good job of sinking his hips when changing direction, and really sells route fakes to defensive backs. Salas has good ball tracking ability and can find the ball high in the air on deep passes. His entire game is built on quickness: releases from the line; setting up routes; breaking on the ball and getting up field after the catch.
Greg Salas of Hawaii also had a good day. Salas caught everything with his hands early — contrary to a questionable report that I saw earlier in the week. Salas won every one of his one-on-one battles, even juking Shareece Wright out of his shoes on the final rep of practice.
The Finsiders:
Also, at the wide receiver position Greg Salas, a 6’2” 210 pound target of Hawaii caught my eye. Salas showed flashes that he can stretch the field either on the outside or in the slot.
Salas shook off a couple of early drops to finish practice strongly. "You just have to have a short memory, especially at receiver," he said. "You know you're going to get more than one shot out here, and I'm just looking forward to my next one. I'm just going to do the best I can to get open and try to gain the confidence of the quarterback."
Real GM:
Hawaii’s Greg Salas doesn’t show a lot of wiggle but he has strong hands and decent speed. He ran a sluggo route that left Curtis Brown (Texas corner not having a good week) flailing, then tracked a good throw from Greg McElroy for a touchdown.
WR Greg Salas from Hawaii is coming off of back to back 100 catch seasons and it showed on Tuesday. Salas (6’1″ 206) is a smooth route runner and gained consistent separation throughout the session including a 42-yard hookup with Greg McElroy for a touchdown during 11-on-11. Salas had about 8 receptions in the practice and had the South Team QBs looking for him series to series.
