Round 7
PICK(OVR)PLAYER/SCHOOLPOSDRAFTED BYNOTES
  • What he brings: 

    He has the potential to develop into a versatile backup to provide depth at tackle and guard. He does need to play with better pad level to generate more power.

  • What he brings: 

    Brown has adequate size and athleticism to hold up in space. In addition he flashes, ability to bring pressure as a pass rusher and can hold up underneath in zone coverage. He could also bolster the special teams unit.

  • What he brings: 

    Cole is a three-year starter with above-average instincts but below-average athletic ability. He projects as two-down linebacker who will also contribute on special teams.

  • What he brings: 

    He's an underrated athlete with a non-stop motor. He does show adequate quickness in the initial get-off as a pass rusher, but he needs to get stronger as a finisher.

  • What he brings: 

    He can improve his vision, but has some serious juice and an extra gear to hit the home run. In addition, he's versatile in the passing game.

  • What he brings: 

    Crawford has good size and above-average athleticism. In addition, he flashes adequate playmaking ability but can improve his instincts and diagnostic skills.

  • What he brings: 

    He doesn't anchor well against the run, but he's explosive and closes well coming off the edge. He's an excellent fit at outside linebacker for the 3-4 scheme that the Colts are installing.

  • What he brings: 

    He has a strong anchor to hold up against the run on the interior. However, he lacks overall range and doesn't have adequate quickness to be effective as a pass-rusher at this point.

  • What he brings: 

    Is a strong, physical in-the-box safety that has the speed and explosiveness to hold up in the back. He needs to improve his instincts and playmaking ability.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a hybrid safety/corner who can also contribute on special teams, but is an inconsistent tackler and has subpar instincts.

  • What he brings: 

    Long has good upside with length and quickness. In addition to having good strength at the point of attack, he needs to have better pad level and could be a second late finding the ball on occasion.

  • What he brings: 

    He isn't an explosive edge rusher, but he occasionally gets to the QB with effort. He's an excellent run-stopper with power and size.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a fluid athlete that lacks elite top-end speed. In addition to average balls skills at best, he can be a second late to find the ball when caught in a trail position.

  • What he brings: 

    He added significant weight at Boise State but still needs to get stronger at the point of attack. He doesn't have enough lateral mobility to protect the QB's blind side.

  • What he brings: 

    He's an instinctive inside linebacker that plays with good leverage and has solid take-on skills. He could hold up in underneath coverage, however he lacks elite athleticism which brings up concerns about his ability to hold up in space.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a sound open-field tackler with good instincts, but has limited range and poor take-on skills. There are concerns about his ability to be an every-down player.

  • What he brings: 

    Concerns about Dennard's character have likely caused him to drop. His size is also a significant concern, but he's a physical corner with enough athletic ability to contribute in sub packages.

  • What he brings: 

    He can hold his ground one-on-one and he chases hard, but he's not overly explosive and his subpar upper-body strength hinders his ability to get off blocks.

  • What he brings: 

    He's undersized and has had a hard time staying healthy, but he's one of the most competitive players in this entire draft. And while he wins ugly, he always finds a way to win.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a big, athletic receiver with good body control and enough speed to make some plays downfield. He's not going to give you a lot after the catch and he has problems separating.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a big-bodied defensive tackle with some upside but he played against low-level competition in college and he has to do a better job of staying low.

  • What he brings: 

    He hasn't played much football in the past two years and it raises concerns about his character. But if he can stay on the field and realize his potential, he can be a three-down power back.

  • What he brings: 

    Stupar has limited upside, but he has the potential to develop as a backup strong-side linebacker and special teams performer.

  • What he brings: 

    He has the size-speed combination to develop into a vertical threat but he will get pushed around until he gets bigger and stronger.

  • What he brings: 

    He doesn't have a natural fit in terms of playing DE or DT, but he's quick and has active hands.

  • What he brings: 

    He's an undersized H-back prospect who catches the ball well, but isn't a big play threat and offers little as a blocker.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a big mauler who played in a run-heavy offense and will need to develop as a pass blocker if he wants to become a starting right tackle.

  • What he brings: 

    Ebert is a tough, possession receiver who isn't afraid to work the middle of the field and take big hits. He's just not a big play threat.

  • What he brings: 

    He has a nice combination of size and athleticism. He shows good lateral quickness and make plays outside the tackles, but he needs to develop as a pass-rusher and become more instinctive to find and to react to plays more quickly.

  • What he brings: 

    He's inconsistent and doesn't always play up to his ability, but he flashes the skill set to develop into an effective edge rusher. He's a great fit in the San Francisco scheme as an outside rusher.

  • What he brings: 

    He's built like a running back and he struggles to separate from man coverage, but he has above-average ball skills and he's an excellent competitor.

  • What he brings: 

    He's an above-average athlete for his size, but he needs to get stronger and has had some problems staying healthy. He has some off-the-field red flags.

  • What he brings: 

    He catches the ball well, but he doesn't have the speed to threaten down the field or the frame to develop into a dominant blocker.

  • What he brings: 

    Concerns about Datko's durability devastated his stock over the course of the 2011 season. If he can stay healthy, he's a steal at this point in the draft. He has above-average quickness and balance for his size.

  • What he brings: 

    He's another player who has trouble staying healthy, but again the potential to be a very good player is there. He has above-average instincts, he can cover the deep-half and he fills hard in run support.

  • What he brings: 

    He has the prototypical size and arm strength to make all the throws at the NFL level. He needs to improve his internal clock to succeed as he lacks the ability to buy time both within and outside of the pocket.

  • What he brings: 

    Has sustained significant injuries in both knees and he's an older prospect, but he's a reliable pass catcher who knows how to get open.

  • What he brings: 

    He is a fluid athlete that shows quick feet and adequate man-coverage skills. However he needs to develop in terms of instincts and becoming a more consistent tackler in run support.

  • What he brings: 

    He can get exposed when asked to matchup in man coverage, but he shows good instincts and range in zone coverage.

  • What he brings: 

    He's an overachiever who makes the most of his limited natural tools. He can contribute in certain packages as well as on special teams.

  • What he brings: 

    He's a mauler who plays with good aggressiveness but he needs to play with better balance and has some limits in pass protection.

  • What he brings: 

    Robertson has active hands and good strength, but he wastes a little too much motion getting off the blocks. He doesn't offer much as a pass-rusher.

  • What he brings: 

    Baker needs to improve his ability to contribute on passing downs. On the other hand, he's a tough runner with a low center of gravity and good balance.

  • What he brings: 

    He doesn't have great leg strength, but he' s accurate on field goal attempts inside 40 yards, and he's an above-average athlete for the position.

  • What he brings: 

    While he has decent speed, Richardson needs to get bigger and stronger, especially when you factor in his durability issues.

  • What he brings: 

    Harnish has some upside. He flashes above-average anticipation, he's mobile and he has a strong arm. On the downside, he's raw and has a hard time finding his second read if his first option isn't there.
