✅  SIX STAR FOOTBALL SCOUTING REPORT:  Strong, physical EDGE with terrific size and a projectable frame, Slaton passes the eye test and already looks like a college athlete at 6’3, 230-pounds. Tested well in the combine portion of the Midwest Showcase, including a 112 inch broad jump. He was an All-SWMFBCA selection for his work as a junior at Branson. Also a strong student, Slaton reports a 3.9 GPA and was an academic all-state selection,.

✅  ANALYSIS: Slaton is very physical and constantly looking to attack and get to the backfield and make a play and can catch up with opponents and pull them down for a loss. Shows a lot of force to his tackles and good decision making as well. Uses his size and frame to his advantage exceptionally well. Gets out of the gate as a pass rusher quickly. Has long arms at 6’3 and uses his hands well to fend off blocks. Slaton has raw power, easily shrugging off would-be blockers. His tackling strength is above average, able to stop opposing running backs in their tracks. He displays good quickness for a player of his size. His closing speed is notable, able to quickly make up ground when pursuing the ball carrier. A promising talent who is likely to make an impact on any defense he joins. With some polish on his technique, he could become an exceptional pass-rusher at the next level.

✅  GREATEST STRENGTHS: Size, frame, strength, athleticism.
