Say Hello To The 6-Foot-9-Inch 380-Pound Aussie College Football Star On The NFL's Radar

If his college football highlights are anything to go by, Daniel Faalele certainly has a bright career in the NFL ahead of him.

The Melbourne-born star has been tearing it up at collegiate level - so much so that he's tipped to be a first round Draft pick next year.

And at 6-foot-9-inches tall and weighing in at around 380 pounds, you can sort of see why.

Given his sheer size and power, Faalele is an offensive lineman by trade, tasked with keeping his quarterback safe.

But during Minnesota's Guaranteed Rate Bowl against West Virginia, the Aussie found himself in uncharted territory in the fullback position.

With his team just two yards from the redzone, they turned to the Aussie as the man to get them over the line.

Faalele received the ball from his quarterback and bulldozed over several opposition defenders like a mack truck to score his first career touchdown.

But superb solo touchdowns aside, Faalele has been on the radar of NFL coaches for quite some time with a couple of scout reports suggesting he could go 31st to the Baltimore Ravens.

So Lamar Jackson, you're in safe hands.
