The Falcons have come to terms with their two fourth-round picks after agreeing to terms with five rookies from their draft class earlier this week.

As of now, Kyle Pitts and Richie Grant are the only draft picks that remain unsigned. Below are the scouting reports for Hall and Dalman:

Pick 108: CB/S Darren Hall, San Diego State

Darren Hall’s secondary coach, Kyle Hoke, is the son of Atlanta’s secondary coach Jon Hoke. Still, Hall tied for the FBS lead in pass breakups with 16 and snagged three interceptions for the Aztecs. He earned First Team All-Mountain West honors in 2020 for his efforts. The Falcons continued the trend of adding versatile defensive backs after drafting Richie Grant, as Hall has safety and nickel flexibility. I think this is a solid pick to help fill a position of need, and Hall reminds me a lot of another former Aztec/Falcon — Damontae Kazee.

Pick 114: IOL Drew Dalman, Stanford

Drew Dalman is one of my favorite picks of this entire draft. Thought to be a second-round talent by a lot of scouts, Dalman fell to the Falcons in the fourth round. He immediately provides competition at positions of need — center and guard. In 243 pass block snaps in 2020, Dalman allowed zero sacks. In addition, Dalman was a fantastic run-blocker, team captain, and tested off the charts athletically. He could add some strength to his frame, but he’s a pretty clean prospect. Drew’s dad, Chris Dalman, was Atlanta’s O-Line coach in 2005. Chris also played with Dwayne Ledford in the NFL with the 49ers in the 90’s.

Both of these guys tested off the charts athletically:
