Blalock added to offensive line

Texas Sports With their second selection in the draft, and the first of their two second round picks, the Falcons chose Texas offensive lineman Justin Blalock.

Blalock (6’4″ 329) is a versatile blocker, having started at right tackle and right during his career with the Longhorns. He was a three-year starter at tackle and played this past year at right guard. He was a three-time All-Big 12 selection. Blalock is considered one of the premier interior blockers in the draft, possessing good strength.

Blalock will get a chance to challenge on the Falcons roster at multiple position, most likely at left guard where the team has an open competition for that starting position.
