Draft Rewind 2007 - Justin Blalock - Atlanta Falcons

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about JUSTIN BLALOCK: Texas, 6032 320 5.18 Four-year starter that has played both guard and tackle. Moved to guard permanently in 2006. Long torso with thick lower body. Hustles downfield to get ahead of the play. Flashes first step quickness and explosiveness in the running game. Wide body to position and wall off defender in pass game. Can be a road grader at times to drive off down linemen. Flashes explosive punch to stun defender. Better than average athlete that will compete. Understands the game and has good playing awareness to pick up stunts and games. Above average lateral foot quickness to mirror and sustain in pass protection. Can quick set and has the strength to control a bull rush. Can anchor and hold his ground versus power. Will drop his head on pass protection at times and lose his target. Body control is awkward. Tendency to maul because of strength. Plays with a strong base. Reminds our scouts of Will Shields when he came out of Nebraska. Patient in pass pro and plays with good balance. Flashes an explosive punch to stun defender. Thick butt and legs. Strong lower body to stop a charge. Has all the tools to be a ten year guard. Possesses long arms and big hands to control defender. Second round. (A-34, H-10 1/2, BP-40, 10-1.77).
