2015 NFL DRAFT
  •  
  • Round 1, Pick 1, Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State. Grade: A- Analysis: I don't think Winston is in the Andrew Luck class, but he is the best quarterback in this draft and Tampa Bay had to take him. It is the right move for the Bucs at No. 1 overall. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 2, Tennessee Titans select Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon. Grade: C- Analysis: Why? Why not take the best defensive player in the draft? What if Mariota doesn't beat out Zach Mettenberger? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 3, Jacksonville Jaguars select Dante Fowler Jr., OLB, Florida. Grade: B+ Analysis: I would have taken DT Leonard Williams here, but I love Dante Fowler and he fills a need for the Jags. Solid pick. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 4, Oakland Raiders select Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama. Grade: B Analysis: Again, why not DT Leonard Williams? I get pairing Cooper with Derek Carr, but in a division with Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning, the defense has to get better. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 5, Washington Redskins select Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa. Grade: B- Analysis: Washington has a big need on the line, so I get this pick. This is a nice, solid selection -- but not a 'wow' pick, which they needed. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 6, New York Jets select Leonard Williams, DT, Southern California. Grade: B+ Analysis: I love the player and there is great value with the pick, but does he fit with this New York team? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 7, Chicago Bears select Kevin White, WR, West Virginia. Grade: A Analysis: I love this pick. Kevin White will help open up the passing game. Jay Cutler will love this, too. Great pick. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 8, Atlanta Falcons select Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson. Grade: B Analysis: I know they need an edge rusher in the worst way, but this kid is one-dimensional. Bud Dupree would have been a better choice. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 9, New York Giants select Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami (Fla.). Grade: B+ Analysis: The Giants needed help up front. This is a kid scouts loved. He is tough and physical. I think he plays right tackle and moves Justin Pugh inside. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 10, St. Louis Rams select Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia. Grade: C+ Analysis: I don't think the Rams are in a spot to be able to take a back this high. But then again, it's Jeff Fisher. He loves to run it. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 11, Minnesota Vikings select Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State. Grade: B+ Analysis: This is the best corner in the draft and Mike Zimmer loves corners. He and Xavier Rhodes will form a nice duo in Minnesota. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 12, Cleveland Browns select Danny Shelton, DT, Washington. Grade: B Analysis: This is a good, solid pick for a team that needs to get better against the run. Can he push the pocket, though? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 13, New Orleans Saints select Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford. Grade: B Analysis: Some think it's a shock to see the Saints take an offensive lineman in the first round, but it makes sense as they are trying to become more physical. Where does he play? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 14, Miami Dolphins select DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville. Grade: A Analysis: I think this is a great move by Miami. They had to get a go-to receiver for Ryan Tannehill, and this kid is exactly that. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 15, San Diego Chargers select Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin. Grade: B Analysis: The Chargers made the move up to get him, and they needed a back. I don't like taking rushers high, but with Philip Rivers staying around, it makes sense. It will take the heat off. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 16, Houston Texans select Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest. Grade: B Analysis: This is smooth cover player who will be able to press for time as a starter right away. Jonathan Joseph is in the final year of his contract. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 17, San Francisco 49ers select Arik Armstead, DE, Oregon. Grade: B+ Analysis: This kid has a ton of ability, but he didn't always play like it. Can he reach his potential on the next level? I think he can. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 18, Kansas City Chiefs select Marcus Peters, CB, Washington. Grade: A Analysis: I love this pick. He can flat out cover, and the Chiefs need help outside. This is a really good selection, even with the off-field concerns. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 19, Cleveland Browns select Cameron Erving, C, Florida State. Grade: C+ Analysis: I love the player, but where does he play? He was a left tackle and a center in college, but they have those two spots pretty much set in Cleveland. Why not a receiver? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 20, Philadelphia Eagles select Nelson Agholor, WR, Southern California. Grade: B Analysis: I like this kid a lot, and he will be perfect for the Chip Kelly offense. They had to get a receiver, so it works here. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 21, Cincinnati Bengals select Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M. Grade: B- Analysis: They said all along that they would pick a player who would not start this year. And they followed that plan. Ogbuehi now has time for him to recover from the ACL injury. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 22, Pittsburgh Steelers select Bud Dupree, DE, Kentucky. Grade: A+ Analysis: The Steelers had to get a young pass rusher, and they had to be shocked to see this kid still available here. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 23, Denver Broncos select Shane Ray, DE, Missouri. Grade: B- Analysis: The Broncos made the move up to get him because Arizona would have taken him. This is great value, but he has some issues. DeMarcus Ware is getting up in the years. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 24, Arizona Cardinals select D.J. Humphries, OT, Florida. Grade: B+ Analysis: This is a great value in Humphries. This kid will be a better NFL player than he was a college player. The toughest part will be the transition to right tackle. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 25, Carolina Panthers select Shaq Green-Thompson, OLB, Washington. Grade: D Analysis: I don't get this pick at all. They have a major need on the offensive line. Where does Thompson play? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 26, Baltimore Ravens select Breshad Perriman, WR, UCF. Grade: B+ Analysis: The Ravens needed speed outside in the worst way and this kid can fly. He just needs to be more consistent. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 27, Dallas Cowboys select Byron Jones, CB, Connecticut. Grade: A- Analysis: The Cowboys never thought this kid would be here. They have a major need at corner, and they land one at No. 27. He's much more than just an athlete. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 28, Detroit Lions select Laken Tomlinson, OG, Duke. Grade: B+ Analysis: He is a nasty, tough football player who will help their running game. I like this pick a lot, especially after they dropped down. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 29, Indianapolis Colts select Phillip Dorsett, WR, Miami (Fla.). Grade: A Analysis: I love the addition of speed. And this kid can fly. He's small and so is T.Y. Hilton, but there is no substitute for speed -- especially with Andrew Luck. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 30, Green Bay Packers select Damarious Randall, FS, Arizona State. Grade: B- Analysis: This is a strange pick, unless they use him like a hybrid player. I still don't get it. They have other needs. Will he play some corner? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 31, New Orleans Saints select Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson. Grade: C- Analysis: I don't think this is kid is a first-round talent. I know a lot of others disagree. They had other needs in New Orleans. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 1, Pick 32, New England Patriots select Malcom Brown, DT, Texas. Grade: B+ Analysis: New England needed a power player in the middle, and this kid makes a ton of sense. He will take over for Vince Wilfork. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 33, New York Giants select Landon Collins, SS, Alabama. Grade: B Analysis: They had to get a safety, but he is a box safety. In a division with teams that want to run the ball, it makes sense as he is someone who can play in space. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 34, Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Donovan Smith, OT, Penn State. Grade: B- Analysis: They had to get a tackle, but I think there were better options. He will likely play on the right side, which is a need. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 35, Oakland Raiders select Mario Edwards Jr., DE, Florida State. Grade: C Analysis: Where was the production in college? He never lived up to the hype. There is ability, but it's time for him to show it. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 36, Jacksonville Jaguars select T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama. Grade: B+ Analysis: I love this pick. All he did was make people miss. He will be a feature back for a team that needs one. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 37, New York Jets select Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State. Grade: A Analysis: They needed a speed receiver to stretch the field and this kid can fly. He is not a one-trick pony either. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 38, Washington Redskins select Preston Smith, DE, Mississippi State. Grade: B Analysis: This kid really opened a lot of scouts' eyes as the process played along. He has to play down for Washington, right? They need an edge rusher. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 39, Chicago Bears select Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State. Grade: B Analysis: He fills a major need but there is some inconsistency in his game. I get it. They need a power nose in their new scheme. He will fill that role well. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 40, Tennessee Titans select Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma. Grade: A Analysis: They got a big-play vertical threat for their new quarterback in Marcus Mariota. They can grow together ... if Mariota can play in Ken Whisenhunt's offense. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 41, Carolina Panthers select Devin Funchess, TE, Michigan. Grade: C Analysis: I love the player -- as a move tight end -- and I think the Panthers will play him as a receiver. It doesn't work as a complement to Kelvin Benjamin in my book. There were better options outside. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 42, Atlanta Falcons select Jalen Collins, CB, LSU. Grade: A Analysis: Dan Quinn loves big corners like he had in Seattle, and this one makes a lot of sense. This kid has first-round talent. In a division with big receivers, it works. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 43, Houston Texans select Benardrick McKinney, ILB, Mississippi State. Grade: B- Analysis: He is a thunper in the run game, and they badly need that. They had issue at inside linebacker last year and this is a big, power linebacker. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 44, New Orleans Saints select Hau'oli Kikaha, OLB, Washington. Grade: A- Analysis: This is a good pick for the Saints. He is a nice edge rusher for a team that needs one ... but there are some injury concerns. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 45, Minnesota Vikings select Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA. Grade: B+ Analysis: The Vikings add him to Anthony Barr to give them a nice, young defense. There is a lot of talent on that side of the ball; Mike Zimmer has to be thrilled. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 46, San Francisco 49ers select Jaquiski Tartt, SS, Samford. Grade: C Analysis: Scouts had mixed reviews on this kid. Can he play in the deep middle? They love safeties who can hit and play the run. So I guess it works. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 47, Philadelphia Eagles select Eric Rowe, CB, Utah. Grade: A+ Analysis: He is one of the most versatile defensive backs in the draft. To go up and get him is a heck of a move by Chip Kelly. I think he can be a star safety, but a lot of scouts love him as a corner. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 48, San Diego Chargers select Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami (Fla.). Grade: B Analysis: He made a ton of plays at Miami and he's a good player, but they had more pressing needs. That's what makes this strange but there are only so many inside backers in this draft. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 49, Kansas City Chiefs select Mitch Morse, OG, Missouri. Grade: B Analysis: He can play a bunch of a different positions, which is why it makes sense. This kid can play tackle guard or center. They need help at all three spots. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 50, Buffalo Bills select Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State. Grade: B- Analysis: I think Darby had first-round ability, so he will step in and compete to play right away. Rex Ryan loves defense and to beat the Patriots you have to defend the pass. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 51, Cleveland Browns select Nate Orchard, DE, Utah. Grade: C Analysis: He has some pass-rush ability and they need it, but why not receiver? Will they ever draft one? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 52, Miami Dolphins select Jordan Phillips, DT, Oklahoma. Grade: A Analysis: This is a power player who will fit in nicely on their line next to Ndamukong Suh. I think he will be a better NFL player than he showed in college. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 53, Cincinnati Bengals select Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon. Grade: B- Analysis: Two tackles in the first two rounds? I know both tackles are in the final year of their deals, but the Bengals do have other needs. Speed linebacker? Receiver? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 54, Detroit Lions select Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska. Grade: C+ Analysis: I like other backs in this spot more. He's good, has some explosiveness, but didn't they want to get a more physical back? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 55, Baltimore Ravens select Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota. Grade: A Analysis: They needed to get a tight end, and they got the best one in the draft. He can also block. That matters. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 56, Pittsburgh Steelers select Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss. Grade: B Analysis: This kid has a ton of athletic ability and fills a major need. He might walk in as a starter. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 57, St. Louis Rams select Robby Havenstein, OT, Wisconsin. Grade: A Analysis: I love this pick. He is a mauler in the run game. He can play right tackle or move inside. Todd Gurley will come to like this pick. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 58, Arizona Cardinals select Markus Golden, OLB, Missouri. Grade: B Analysis: They had to get an edge rusher. He fits in their 3-4 scheme, and he will bring some toughness and help the pass rush. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 59, Denver Broncos select Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado State. Grade: B+ Analysis: There are some people who think this kid will be a Pro Bowl player. He has a ton of athletic ability, so now it's just a matter of turning it into something more. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 60, Dallas Cowboys select Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska. Grade: A Analysis: There is great value here if he gets his life in order. That's a big 'if.' But it can be a huge hit. Worth the risk. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 61, Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Ali Marpet, OG, Hobart. Grade: C+ Analysis: He has some ability ... but how do you truly grade his tape considering the competition? This is a risky pick. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 62, Green Bay Packers select Quinten Rollins, CB, Miami (Ohio). Grade: B Analysis: The Packers needed to get another corner after drafting Randall in the first round. This kid has unreal athletic ability as a former hoops player. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 63, Seattle Seahawks select Frank Clark, DE, Michigan. Grade: B+ Analysis: The Seahawks know how to find good football players. This kid has some character issues, but he can flat out play. Another gem for Seattle. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 2, Pick 64, New England Patriots select Jordan Richards, SS, Stanford. Grade: C Analysis: This might be a little high for him, but Belichick likes players who can help on special teams and this kid will do just that. But it's too high in my mind. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 65, Indianapolis Colts select DJoun Smith, CB, Florida Atlantic. Grade: B+ Analysis: I like this a pick a lot. They need another corner and this kid can flat out play. The Colts are having a nice draft. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 66, Tennessee Titans select Jeremiah Poutasi, OG, Utah. Grade: C+ Analysis: They need a right tackle and he will come in right away and compete for the job. He can also play guard. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 67, Jacksonville Jaguars select A.J. Cann, OG, South Carolina. Grade: A Analysis: I love this kid. He is mauler in the run game. This makes a ton of sense for a line building to something. He is tough and physical. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 68, Oakland Raiders select Clive Walford, TE, Miami (Fla.). Grade: B Analysis: They get a pass-catching tight end for their young quarterback. This kid has a chance to be a 65-catch guy early in his career. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 69, Seattle Seahawks select Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State. Grade: B Analysis: Seattle needed a receiver and a return man, but don't the Seahawks have to address the line at some point? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 70, Houston Texans select Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State. Grade: A Analysis: What a great pick for the Texans. This is a big, strong receiver who will catch almost anything thrown his way. He will be a nice complement to DeAndre Hopkins. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist

  • Round 3, Pick 73, Atlanta Falcons select Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana. Grade: B- Analysis: I am surprised he was still on the board. The Falcons have a need, so it works. He will be a nice fit in their offense. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 74, New York Giants select Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA. Grade: B Analysis: The Giants love to pick pass rushers, and this kid can rush the passer. So there's some value. But he does have some medical issues. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 75, New Orleans Saints select Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State. Grade: C Analysis: I guess they are really coming to the end of the Drew Brees era in New Orleans. But is this the long-term answer? by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 76, Kansas City Chiefs select Chris Conley, WR, Georgia. Grade: B- Analysis: This kid can run and they have a need at receiver, but it might be a little high. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist

  • Round 3, Pick 79, San Francisco 49ers select Eli Harold, OLB, Virginia. Grade: D Analysis: I am not a fan. I don't think he's tough enough. He will play outside in their 3-4 scheme. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist

  • Round 3, Pick 82, New York Jets select Lorenzo Mauldin, OLB, Louisville. Grade: B+ Analysis: This is the edge rusher the Jets needed to get. He has a chance to be rotation player as a rookie and maybe more his second season. Nice job. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 83, San Diego Chargers select Craig Mager, CB, Texas State. Grade: B- Analysis: Scouts loved his athletic ability and size. He did play at a lower level, so there was some concern. the Chargers need help at corner, though. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist

  • Round 3, Pick 88, Minnesota Vikings select Danielle Hunter, DE, LSU. Grade: B- Analysis: This is a name that kept coming up from scouts late in the process. He is a long edge player who will give the Vikings another young defender to build around. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 89, St. Louis Rams select Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State. Grade: A Analysis: This is nice value here at this point. I think he's the third-best quarterback in this draft and gives them a young passer behind Nick Foles. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 90, Baltimore Ravens select Carl Davis, DT, Iowa. Grade: B+ Analysis: Some people though he would be a first-round pick, but he is inconsistent. In the Ravens' scheme, he will fit in as a 3-4 end. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist
  • Round 3, Pick 91, Dallas Cowboys select Chaz Green, OT, Florida. Grade: B- Analysis: This might be a little high for him, but this is a player scouts kept saying would go higher than expected. He was the other tackle at Florida. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist

  • Round 3, Pick 93, Indianapolis Colts select Henry Anderson, DE, Stanford. Grade: B Analysis: I know a lot of draftniks loved him, but I wasn't as sold. He's a solid backup, but I don't think he will be anything more than that. by Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Columnist

  • Round 4, Pick 103, New York Jets select Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor. Grade: B Analysis: Competition for Geno Smith. Petty has a great arm but has limited exposure to pro concepts, just like Smith coming out of college. Chan Gailey is a great coordinator for him. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com

  • Round 7, Pick 224, St. Louis Rams select Bryce Hager, ILB, Baylor. Grade: B+ Analysis: Loved his tape. Hager has bloodlines, is very instinctive and understands his position. Lacks elite measurables but can carve out a role in the NFL. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 225, Atlanta Falcons select Jake Rodgers, OT, Eastern Washington. Grade: C+ Analysis: Athletic swing offensive lineman with strong hands but is very stiff and won't be able to hold up on the outside. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 226, New York Giants select Bobby Hart, OG, Florida State. Grade: C- Analysis: Strictly a power player who was poor in pass protection in college. He has an enormous body and good length. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 227, St. Louis Rams select Martin Ifedi, DE, Memphis. Grade: C Analysis: Limited athletic presence on the defensive line but career sack leader for Memphis who seemed to always find a way to the quarterback. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 228, Minnesota Vikings select Austin Shepherd, OT, Alabama. Grade: C- Analysis: Big, mean SEC lineman who is very limited movement wise but is coachable and will be an positive addition in practice. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 229, Jacksonville Jaguars select Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame. Grade: B+ Analysis: Koyack has good size and athleticism on the field to be a downfield threat. He is a willing blocker who should be a better pro than college player. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 230, New Orleans Saints select Marcus Murphy, RB, Missouri. Grade: B Analysis: The type of back who can excel in Sean Payton's scheme. Murphy is a space back with excellent hands as well as a big-time return threat (7 career TDs). by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 231, Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Joey Iosefa, FB, Hawaii. Grade: C- Analysis: Strictly a goal line specialist who will likely need to be moved to fullback to make a roster. Big, strong and physical. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 232, Minnesota Vikings select Edmond Robinson, OLB, Newberry. Grade: B- Analysis: From a tiny school (Newberry) and is as freakishly skinny as he is long. Athletic specimen who is boom or bust. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 233, Kansas City Chiefs select Da'Ron Brown, WR, Northern Illinois. Grade: B Analysis: Fits nicely in this scheme. With QB Alex Smith more of an intermediate thrower, Brown has a shot. His hands are outstanding, but he doesn't offer much in terms of separation for yards-after-catch ability. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 234, Buffalo Bills select Dezmin Lewis, WR, Central Arkansas. Grade: C+ Analysis: Lewis has NFL-size, athleticism and explosiveness but doesn't have much of a presence on the field ... and that's against weak competition. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 235, Houston Texans select Kenny Hilliard, RB, LSU. Grade: C Analysis: Big name, underachiever with prototypical size but is a one-speed runner without much burst. Catches the ball well. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 236, Dallas Cowboys select Mark Nzeocha, OLB, Wyoming. Grade: D+ Analysis: He's 25 years old and went to high school in Germany. Nzeocha has decent size as well as impressive speed and movement ability. So raw that it's hard to see him developing into anything. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 237, Philadelphia Eagles select Brian Mihalik, DE, Boston College. Grade: C- Analysis: Drafted based off size/length at 6-foot-9 and 295 pounds. Underwhelming on tape with very little impact. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 238, Cincinnati Bengals select Mario Alford, WR, West Virginia. Grade: B+ Analysis: An A+ athlete but very small and limited in his role. Big-time threat in the return game at worst. Great value here. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 239, Pittsburgh Steelers select Gerod Holliman, FS, Louisville. Grade: A- Analysis: Poor tackler who appears disinterested at times but polar opposite in coverage. True ballhawk qualities and can serve as a trump card moving forward. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 240, Detroit Lions select Corey Robinson, OT, South Carolina. Grade: B+ Analysis: Detroit has had an outstanding draft so far in large part to their offensive line additions. Robinson is enormous and can be an excellent backup player in the league with potential to spot start. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 241, Cleveland Browns select Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon. Grade: A+ Analysis: Gave this guy a late-first, early-second round grade based on tape. Apparently has grave injury concerns, but you can't get much better value in the seventh round. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 242, Oakland Raiders select Dexter McDonald, CB, Kansas. Grade: B Analysis: Prototypical-size cornerback who had a spectacular pro day. Started every game the last two seasons but needs time to learn the nuances of the position. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 243, Dallas Cowboys select Laurence Gibson, OT, Virginia Tech. Grade: C+ Analysis: A 6-foot-6, 305-pound lineman with crazy length and good quickness. Very raw in his technique and handwork. Needs a lot of coaching but is moldable. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 244, San Francisco 49ers select Trenton Brown, OG, Florida. Grade: C- Analysis: Boom or bust guy who is massive at 6-foot-8 and 355 pounds with spectacular length. Have heard he is very immature as well. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 245, Tennessee Titans select Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary. Grade: A Analysis: Elite "above the rim" receiver who dominated at times. He has good size and speed. Unsure of why he's here but on film this is a steal. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 246, Dallas Cowboys select Geoff Swaim, TE, Texas. Grade: D+ Analysis: Swaim is a former JUCO guy who barely got a chance to see the field at Texas but can go up and get the ball. Camp body. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 247, New England Patriots select Darryl Roberts, CB, Marshall. Grade: C Analysis: Twitchy, long cornerback who is very undisciplined on the field. Needs to add some weight as well. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 248, Seattle Seahawks select Ryan Murphy, FS, Oregon State. Grade: B Analysis: Ideal size with incredible athleticism, just the type of corner Seattle takes fliers on this late. Great situation for him. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 249, Atlanta Falcons select Akeem King, FS, San Jose State. Grade: B- Analysis: Top level athlete at safety who doesn't have great tape versus low level competition. Coaching will be big for him. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 250, Denver Broncos select Trevor Siemian, QB, Northwestern. Grade: D Analysis: Likely a camp arm who was a one-year starter. He has excellent size and an average arm. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 251, Denver Broncos select Taurean Nixon, CB, Tulane. Grade: C Analysis: Insane athletic ability. A transfer from Memphis who will come in and compete on special teams. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 252, Denver Broncos select Josh Furman, SS, Oklahoma State. Grade: F Analysis: Undersized linebacker with outstanding athleticism but tons of off-field trouble, including an assault charge. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 253, New England Patriots select Xzavier Dickson, OLB, Alabama. Grade: C Analysis: Good natural pass rush ability, high-motor guy who was a situational player for Nick Saban. Likely a special teams player. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 254, San Francisco 49ers select Rory Anderson, TE, South Carolina. Grade: C+ Analysis: Jumbo athlete who can give fits to defenses down the seam. He has extensive injury history but can be a mismatch versus linebackers. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 255, Indianapolis Colts select Denzelle Good, OT, Mars Hill. Grade: D+ Analysis: Big body who is coming off a major shoulder injury. Can't have enough linemen in camp. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
  • Round 7, Pick 256, Arizona Cardinals select Gerald Christian, TE, Louisville. Grade: B- Analysis: Adequate blocker who's a Florida transfer. Good body control to make contested catches has huge hands (10 3/4). Decent shot at making the practice squad. by Brandon Thorn, NFLDraftScout.com
