Draft 2010

Pick No.117

Selected By: Atlanta Falcons

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 19 (117)

Pick Analysis: Hawley is a good college interior lineman but lacks any singular asset that makes you think he eventually can become a starter at the next level. He started at both guard and center while at UNLV and understands blocking schemes and angles. He is not a natural knee-bender and struggles to leverage blocks, which allows him to be overpowered by massive nose tackles and three-technique tackles. He gets a good fit with his hands but lacks the heavy hands that can shock opponents and get them back on their heels. He projects as a quality free agent or late-round draft pick.
