Round 7
PICK(OVR)PLAYER/SCHOOLPOSDRAFTED BYNOTES
  • Green's lack of size limits his potential a bit and he is still a work in progress as a route runner and blocker. However, Green is one of the fastest and most naturally athletic prospects in a weak TE/H-back class.
  • He is a one-gap wave reserve who flashes good strength, but is extremely limited as an athlete.
  • Rogers has marginal size and is limited with his overall tools, however , he possesses enough instincts and ball skills to potentially develop into an adequate sub-package reserve and special teams contributor.
  • Lindsey doesn't have as much upside as some other corners in this class and making the transition to the NFL from Southern Illinois could prove difficult. However, he has enough tools to develop into an effective sub-package corner in time.
  • McElroy knows how to play the quarterback position and he has everything you look for in terms of character, football intelligence, toughness and competitiveness.
  • He is an undersized OT who needs to add bulk to his frame and has raw tools. He is clearly a developmental project at this point.
  • Durability is a concern for Jackson and he has physical limitations, but he does have good size potential to go along with an outstanding combination of intelligence, awareness and toughness.
  • Miller lacks elite size as a traditional DE but he possesses good athleticism to transition to a productive reserve and potential starter as an OLB in base 3-4 front.
  • He is a limited athlete who has excellent strength and power at the point of attack.
  • Thompson lacks elite size and top-end speed, however, he has good ball skills, short-area quickness and aggression in run support.
  • He had a knee injury that limited his mobility a bit in 2010 but he has some athletic upside. He is very much a raw prospect at this point but he shows enough agility and toughness to develop into a versatile reserve role.
  • Reed is raw and needs refining in several areas. However, he has enough tools to become an adequate reserve as a LDE in the Vikings' 4-3 front.
  • The former WR who moved to DB in 2009, has significant durability concerns. He could contribute as a sub package defensive back and on special teams.
  • Hurt is a limited athlete whose best fit will be at OG position at the next level. He has enough strength and tools to potentially add depth to an interior offensive line as a reserve.
  • Taylor doesn't have enough experience at TE due to injuries and because he played LB early in his career. However, he showed flashes as a good pass-catcher last year and will contribute on special teams.
  • Williams is obviously a developmental prospect who brings versatility on special teams at the backend of the roster.
  • Chapas may not have elite power for a fullback but he is a tough lead blocker and between-the-tackles runner for his size. He also has the potential to develop into a reliable receiver and valuable special teams contributor.
  • Scott still needs development in terms of running with more consistent pad level and with a wider base. However, if he stays healthy he has the tools to develop into a solid change-of-pace and third-down back.
  • He's going to be a nickel-type corner who is aggressive and tough for his size.
  • He is a developmental H-back type player who can contribute as a lead blocker and pass-catcher.
  • White is still developing at this point but has enough tools to potentially develop into an adequate reserve as an OLB in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme.
  • Allen will need some development and coaching as a runner coming from the triple-option scheme at Georgia Tech.
  • Romeus saw limited action due to a back injury early in the year before suffering a torn ACL his first game back. However, he is strong at the point of attack and can lock out with his hands.
  • He is not a blazer but could develop into a quality possession receiver.
  • Williams lacks instincts and size at this point, but he has great upside with his physical tools and is a solid overall talent.
  • He flashes above-average recognition skills but can be over aggressive at times and has experience at both safety and corner.
  • Matthews has the upper-body strength, active hands and motor to provide depth at left defensive end in Atlanta's 4-3 scheme.
  • 28

    231

  • Frank Kearse

    Alabama A&M

  • DT
  • Miami

  • from NY Jets through Detroit and San Francisco and Green Bay

  • He is a big body who will fit well in the Dolphins' 3-4 scheme. Kearse is coming from a small school but at this point it is worth taking as a developmental prospect.
  • Batch is an average-sized back who doesn?t have great power or speed. He also has had some problems protecting the football and been nicked up a little too much.
  • He played DT at Arizona State but is a perfect fit to play DE in the Packers' 3-4 scheme. He is stout versus the run and makes it tough for the OTs to slide him out and pick up OLBs.
  • He is a guy who has a nose for the football and flashes adequate instincts to make plays in the backfield. Has some limitations athletically and will need to be a heavy special teams contributor early in his career.
  • Wilson has adequate size and adequate speed to add depth in the secondary with a solid closing burst. He has some upside and brings versatility.
  • Burton has the size and tools to potentially contribute as a fourth or fifth receiver at the next level.
  • Lloyd was already lacking in terms of elite athleticism before his knee injury and unfortunately took another step back in this area as a senior due to injury. However, he has the ability to develop into a reserve two-down inside linebacker in the NFL.
  • Hardy is coming off a season-ending injury and he doesn?t have great top-end speed. However, he has the quickness, ball skills and courage over the middle to develop into a productive situational receiver.
  • Person has the frame, desire and awareness to develop into an adequate reserve but he is undersized and his upside is limited by his sub-par flexibility.
  • Havili is a unique talent because he?s an exceptionally skilled pass-catcher for the position. However, he?s not a good blocker, he lacks ideal size, toughness and power as an inside runner.
  • He is a big possession-type receiver who uses his body to shield defenders and could be a quality target in the red zone.
  • He is undersized and will have problem taking on blocks, however he is a good overall athlete with above-average range.
  • He is a safety/outside linebacker hybrid who doesn't have a natural fit at the pro level and will make his biggest contributions on special teams.
  • Ziemba would struggle if asked to protect a team?s blind side but he has the toughness, size and enough quickness to develop into an effective starting right tackle.
  • He is a massive offensive linemen who can engulf defenders in the run game. However, he's going to have trouble against quicker linemen and making the adjustment coming from a small school.
  • He has good feet and lateral movement, but he needs to do a better job setting up his blocks.
  • He has experience lining up at linebacker and he has problems anchoring against the run when he lines up at end. He?s a better fit at end where he can get stronger and develop into an effective reserve.
  • Hagg has the athleticism and awareness to develop into a versatile sub-package reserve and potential starter down the road. He should make an immediate impact on special teams early in his career.
  • Sampson is an over-aged prospect with marginal top-end speed and a history of durability issues. He does have quality size, hands and toughness.
  • He is a CB who has adequate movement and ball skills. However, he needs to improve his instincts and be more aggressive in run support.
  • Campbell is going to have a big jump coming from a small school. He shows adequate movement skills but needs to improve his instincts.
  • He didn't really contribute significantly in college until 2010 due to injury but he has range for his size and is tenacious.
  • Neild has the tools and skill set to add depth to the Redskins' 3-4 scheme.
  • He is a bit raw at this point and Houston will need to be patient with his development. However, Ozougwu flashes enough tools on film to potentially develop into more than an adequate reserve.
