There are six new Atlanta Falcons.

The team took Fresno State linebacker Mykal Walker and California safety Jaylinn Hawkins with their two picks in the fourth round of the NFL draft Saturday.

Then in the seventh round, the Falcons selected punter Sterling Hofrichter from Syracuse.

The Falcons selected Auburn defensive lineman Marlon Davidson in the second round Friday, then added center Matt Hennessy of Temple in the third round.

That came a day after they picked Clemson cornerback A.J. Terrell in the first round with the first of their six picks in the draft on Thursday.

The draft kicked off Thursday with Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow's name being called first.

This draft was unconventional due to the coronavirus pandemic. There were no hugs from commissioner Roger Goodell. The fans jeered and cheered via video chat. There were few technical glitches in the first night.

Goodell announced the picks from his Westchester County, N.Y., home. General managers and coaches were shown from their homes, all equipped with TV cameras, rather than in "war rooms" at teams' headquarters.
