Pos: 
Large, gap-occupying lineman who slugs it out in the middle of the field. Plays with excellent pad level, fights hard and rarely gets moved off the line by a single blocker. Keeps his feet moving, displays power in his lower body and runs over blockers to make plays. Fires off the snap and shows a variety of moves to get off blocks.
Neg: 
Lacks an explosive closing burst. Often gets tied up in blocks. Can’t get down the line to make plays outside the box.
Analysis: 
Dalton has the size and growth potential to develop into a gap-occupying tackle at the next level and should be stashed on a practice squad next fall.
