Round 7
PICK(OVR)PLAYER/SCHOOLPOSDRAFTED BYNOTES
  • A former tight end, who is best suited at right tackle. His footwork is his best asset.
  • Brown is inconsistent and needs to learn how to read defenses, but he is an excellent value and fit for Buffalo.
  • He played linebacker, but he isn't big enough to play there in the NFL. While he doesn't have great speed to be a safety, he could be an effective situational run-stopper and important special teams player.
  • It was tough for Johnson to find the field at Alabama, but his skill set is good enough to be developed into a productive nickel back at the next level.
  • He is a great fit in the Dolphins' 3-4 defense as a rush end. He brings great upside thanks to his length and closing burst.
  • He is a hardworking, up-the-field defensive end prospect who has marginal top-end speed and needs to add bulk to his frame.
  • He is a limited athlete that displays good toughness and could contribute as a short-to-intermediate security blanket for quarterbacks.
  • Ware is undersized, but has good upside thanks to excellent top-end speed. However, he will have to be a big contributor on special teams in order to make the team.
  • There is a lot to like about his frame and toughness, but his foot speed is sub par. He may be a better fit a guard than tackle.
  • Watson has good overall instincts and overall agility provide with a wide range. He is undersized and needs to get a lot stronger at controlling and shedding blocks.
  • He has the size to play at the NFL level, but its going to take a significant amount of coaching for him to realize his potential.
  • Austin is an undersized slot receiver who shows good quickness in and out of breaks as well as the toughness to make a catch in traffic. He also brings value as a returner.
  • In terms of range and closing speed, he is an excellent fit for the Eagles. While he plays 100 mph, its in the wrong direction too often. He also has sub-par instincts.
  • Dodge has excellent leg strength, which will help him in the windy, inclimate Northeast weather.
  • Mariani is a tough, scrappy receiver with above-average ball skills. He can bring good value in the seventh round due to his skills as a returner.
  • Stanford has adequate size and top-end speed to develop into a sub-package nickel back. He will have to be a special teams contributor in order to make the team.
  • Adams hails from the small school ranks, but brings good upside with his overall athleticism.
  • He dropped due to his lack of top-end speed, but we think he brings great value as a seventh-rounder. He is tough versus the run, instinctive and brings added value on special teams.
  • He doesn't have great closing speed or size, but his motor and athletic ability could make him an effective depth player.
  • We are surprised Dickerson fell this far. He doesn't have a natural position, but he has the potential to be a mismatch and waepon, if teamed up with a creative offensive coordinator. He could potentially flourish in Houston's high-octane passing attack.
  • Stephens is a big-bodied guard prospect who shows solid inline strength. He's a limited athlete and needs to improve his ability to play in space.
  • Cook lacks great inline strength and toughness on the interior. Still, he brings the potential to add depth with quickness and angles to the point in Washington's zone-blocking scheme.
  • Wilson is a good fit as a 5-technique in the Packers' 3-4 front. He's a limited athlete who lacks suddenness with his play. Still, he has point of attack skills to take up space and anchor as a run-defender.
  • Capers has quick feet and much upside as a pass-blocker. It's not that he lacks toughness, but he needs to get stronger in the upperbody and be a more physical run-blocker.
  • Kirlew has limited size and athleticism. He is a classic overachiever and plays a high motor. He's the type of player teams covet at the back end of their roster.
  • Dray has the strength and inline power to potentially become a solid reserve run-blocking tight end.
  • Lissemore is a high-motor defensive tackle prospect with good top-end speed, but he's going to have a tough time making the transition to the NFL.
  • Epps is an interesting H-back prospect with good athletic ability and hands. Although he puts forth a good effort, he struggles as an inline blocker.
  • We felt that Davis' best fit in the NFL would be at outside linebacker in a 3-man front. But he has the burst and athletic ability to become an effective situational pass-rusher for Seattle.
  • He is a blue-collar, tough middlle linebacker. However, he is an overachiever and a limited athlete and will have to contribute on special teams in order to make the team.
  • Matthews has the size to bump down to a 3-technique in Indianapolis' scheme. He has a quick first step and does a nice job using his hands. He has potential to provide depth on the interior defensive line.
  • Canfield has limited size and arm strength. Still, we like his football IQ to help him develop in Sean Peyton's complex offense.
  • Conner has good upside with adequate size and good straight-line speed for the position. However, he is tight in the hips and doesn't have the natural instincts to consistently find the ball. He can be a special teams contributor to make it on the back end of the roster.
  • Howard is a bit small at around 290 pounds, but he has a thick lower body to anchor as a 1-gap in the Titans' scheme. He could give them D-line depth.
  • Worthington is a bit mechanical and a limited athlete. He could add depth as a 5-technique for an older Steelers line.
  • Owens has great size but has had some durability issues in the past. He has the strength to anchor on the inside for an Eagles' line that is lacking depth.
  • Coleman is a bit undersized, but shows good upside with strong overall athleticism and the ability to match up in man coverage if need be. He also brings added value as a special teams coverage man.
  • Konz brings great upside to contribute as both a run-blocker and in the passing game. he has the potential to make the back end of the roster due to his ability to contribute on special teams.
  • Fisher was drafted this late for his ability to contribute on punt and kick returns. He has great speed and vision to locate the seams. He could be the special teams player the Colts have been looking for.
  • Deaderick is a perfect fit as a developmental guy in New England's three-man front. He has great size and length to anchor against the run. He still needs some refining as a pass-rusher.
  • New England goes for depth here by adding the 317-pound Weston. He's another 5-technique defensive lineman and the Pats are always looking to add guys like that.
  • McClain is undersized and lacks top-end speed. Still, he's an instinctive player who maintains strong position in coverage with above average ball skills.
  • Robinson has more arm strength than his frame suggests. He shows good mobility within the pocket. He will have to make a tough transition coming from a spread system, but he has the mental aptitude to become a backup if brought along with proper coaching and patience.
  • Brown has lined up at both linebacker and safety. He projects as a situational run-stuffing safety and special teams contributor at the NFL level.
  • Spitler projects as a reserve inside linebacker. He should make his biggest impact as a cover man on special teams.
  • Lorig is a limited athlete and overachiever. He plays with a relentless motor, which gives him a chance to make a roster.
  • Hull led Penn State in tackles the past two seasons. He has the instincts and work ethic to make it on the back end of the roster as a heavy special teams contributor.
  • Toone is an undersized slot receiver prospect who faces a steep challenge trying to make the transition from Weber State to the NFL.
