Salaam, 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, is a fluid athlete in the back end of the defense that does a nice job of accelerating out of his stance and backpedal. He also flashes impressive coverage awareness, resulting in a handful of interceptions in 2016. It's one thing to haul in an interception, but Salaam also possesses the speed to transform into an offensive weapon.
You also have to take notice of Salaam's discipline. It's easy to lose track of the fundamentals when flying all around the field, but Salaam does a good job of breaking down, maintaining body control and balance, and then striking his opponent. Salaam should manufacture a nice spring on the recruiting trail.
