Round 3 (68): Jalen Mayfield, OT/OG Michigan
To sum up, Jalen Mayfield has the strength to put most guys on the ground.
Some saw Mayfield as a late first-round talent or second-round talent.
He is a strong player. Playing for Michigan he would routinely put guys on the ground, or anchor them to where they could hardly move.
He will most likely move to the left guard position, and that should allow him to show off his brute strength even more. He could end up being an extremely good offensive lineman if he fixes up a few things. You know he has the strength to handle anyone.
One of the most important aspects of being an offensive lineman, especially an offensive tackle, is having good, quick feet. This is one area that Jalen struggled with in college. Thus, why he will most likely move to the inside.
This is most of the reason that he lasted until the third round, he was susceptible to speed rushers who would fly past him, or he would overset himself, giving up the inside move.
He can clean his technique up when it comes to his feet, add to the fact that he should be moving inside where it should cover-up for his slower feet, he should be fine at the next level.
Round 4 (108): Darren Hall, CB San Diego State
While this might not be the area that you want your corner to have his best skillset at, Darren Hall will be able to come up and make tackles for the Atlanta Falcons.
Hall has other things he does great with. He tracks the ball well, sees what is happening, and attacks on the ball. However, his ability as a tackler really sticks out.
He is excellent at squaring his body up with the carrier and attacking through him. He uses the great technique when making the tackles.
This is an area that A.J. Terrell excelled as a rookie, and adding Darren Hall to the mix will only make things better. He is able to make pretty hard hits on guys as well.
He may end up playing a little bit of safety for the Atlanta Falcons as well. This adds to his value on the roster.
Worst: Make-Up Speed
Darren Hall during his time with San Diego State had an issue with biting on stutter and go routes. He would bite on them, and then he does not have the skillset to be able to make up for it.
This is something that he will have to clean up and have to cover up for. He needs to get better at always being ready for the vertical so that he does not get ran past.
He has technique flaws that Atlanta Falcons coaching staff can absolutely help fix, and that should help his make-up speed be less of a worry.
Hall has the aggressiveness and the ability to play in the NFL, he just needs to fix things so that this part of his game is not exposed too much.
Round 4 (114): Drew Dalman, IOL Stanford
Drew Dalman is a bit small for NFL standards, but he has the technique of NFL players.
The new Atlanta Falcons interior offensive lineman will be able to put himself in the needed positions for the offense. He will position himself as he needs to, to simply block the defender just enough to open up the lane.
A lot of his maturity probably comes from his father, who played in the NFL and coached for the Atlanta Falcons over a decade ago.
He reminds a lot of people of Alex Mack, if he can be half the player Mack was, the Falcons got a great one.
Worst: Blocking Against Power
This is something that is a little worrisome when you watch Drew Dalman. When he is not able to use his technique to cover up for it, he will get pushed back.
He does not have the body type to be able to outmuscle guys and routinely drive bigger guys backward. He must lean on his technique like he did at Stanford if he wants to have a successful NFL career.
He would every so often get bent backward by a defensive lineman who was able to get his hands on him first. Maybe he will be able to add a little bit of weight and strength to his body but most likely he will not be able to cover up for it fully.
