2015 NFL DRAFT

Round Seven pick-by-pick analysis

By Jeff Reynolds | NFLDraftScout.com

208. Indianapolis Colts: OT Justin Anderson, Georgia -- Naturally gifted -- 6-4, 334, 32 reps of 225 pounds -- prospect with only one season as a fulltime starter.

209. St. Louis Rams: LB Aaron Brown, Hawaii -- More physical than fast, Brown should stand out on special teams.

210. Minnesota Vikings: ILB Audie Cole, N.C. State -- Impressive instincts and agility at 246 pounds, also surprised with redirection skills in three-cone drill in Indianapolis.

211. Tennessee Titans: DE Scott Solomon, Rice -- Wins with size, toughness and effort but short arms (30 1/8) limit his pass-rush potential.

212. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: RB Michael Smith, Utah State -- Tightly wound running back ran a 4.36 40-yard dash at 207 pounds. He averaged over 6.3 yards per carry in each of the last three seasons, including 7.6 yards per carry on 114 attempts in 2011.

213. Washington Redskins: S Richard Crawford, SMU -- Played well at the NFLPA All-Star game and was All-CUSA in 2011, timed as fast as 4.42 in the 40.

214. Indianapolis Colts: DE Tim Fugger, Vanderbilt -- Had 10.5 sacks last two seasons, should be able to transition to outside linebacker in team's new 3-4 front.

215. Miami Dolphins: DT Kheeston Randall, Texas -- A brutish 290-poundedr who frees from blocks instantly with long arms and strong hands.

216. Carolina Panthers: FS D.J. Campbell, California -- Not a combine invite, Campbell's testing numbers from his pro day would've ranked near the top of the position across the board.

217. Washington Redskins: CB Jordan Bernstine, Iowa -- Another combine snub, Bernstine lit up his pro day workout with a 4.38 40-yard dash and can also return kicks, played strong safety in 2010.

218. Kansas City Chiefs: DT Jerome Long, San Diego State -- Sturdy defensive end with agility to be a penetrator on the Chiefs' active defensive line.

219: Minnesota Vikings: DE Trevor Guyton, California -- Good burst off the ball, similar build, body type to one-time first-round pick Kevin Williams out of Oklahoma State; but nowhere near the agility or rush skills.

220. Chicago Bears: CB Greg McCoy, TCU -- Drafted as a special teams player -- primarily returns kicks -- with developmental value as a cornerback.

221. Arizona Cardinals: OT Nate Potter, Boise State -- Might prove to be too light to play tackle and gained minimal experience at guard for the Broncos. Wins with quickness, not power.

222. Dallas Cowboys: ILB Caleb McSurdy, Montana -- Had 114 tackles as a senior, and has a chance to make the team as one of four inside 'backers on the Cowboys roster.

223. Detroit Lions: OLB Travis Lewis, Oklahoma -- A four-year starter, defensive captain and potent pursuit player.

224. New England Patriots: CB Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska -- An all-around defensive back whose height might force him to safety.

225. Seattle Seahawks: DE J.R. Sweezy, N.C. State -- Long-armed 300-pounder in the Red Bryant mold.

226. San Diego Chargers: C David Molk, Michigan -- Four-year starter for the Wolverines with quickness but he's light and has 32-inch arms, making him susceptible vs. power and speed.

227. Miami Dolphins: WR Rishard Matthews, Nevada -- Similar to Nate Burleson with less short-area quickness and about the same average long speed.

228. Jacksonville Jaguars: DT Jeris Pendleton, Ashland -- Powerful 330-pounder is 27 years old, latest low- to no-risk gamble by the Jacksonville regime.

229. Philadelphia Eagles: RB Bryce Brown, Kansas State -- Very gifted prep All-American who left Tennessee and quit at Kansas State, must show he has the character and talent to be kept around.

230. Oakland Raiders: OLB Nathan Stupar, Penn State -- Limited production until 2011. A bit robotic in his movement, might be able to survive on instincts as a sub-package linebacker.

231. Pittsburgh Steelers: WR Toney Clemons, Colorado -- Michigan transfer isn't a big as Steelers bust Limas Sweed, but he's had similar problems with drops.

232. Seattle Seahawks: DE Greg Scruggs, Louisville -- Versatile defender has played defensive tackle and defensive end. At 284 pounds, he's too small to hold up inside on every down but is another power end.

233. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: TE Drake Dunsmore, Northwestern -- The Wildcats so-called super back, Dunsmore's soft, natural hands can get him on the field.

234. New Orleans Saints: OT Marcel Jones, Nebraska -- Talented and experienced, likely to begin his career on the right side.

235. New England Patriots: WR Jeremy Ebert, Northwestern -- Overachiever who finds a way to the ball. Has slot-receiver footwork but the high school quarterback faces a pack of competition that includes Brandon Lloyd, Anthony Gonzalez, Deion Branch and Julian Edelman.

236. Baltimore Ravens: DE DeAngelo Tyson, LSU -- Big and strong enough to move from defensive tackle to five-technique end. Occasionally shows surprising athleticism.

237. San Francisco 49ers: DE Cam Johnson, Virginia -- Played in the 3-4 defense and has long arms, technique to make it.

238. Kansas City Chiefs: WR Junior Hemingway, Michigan -- A 225-pounder with 4.53 timed speed and three years starting experience in the Big Ten. A jumpball receiver with run-after-catch potential.

239. New York Giants: DT Markus Kuhn, N.C. State -- Unpolished defensive lineman with short arms and little value vs. the run.

240. Pittsburgh Steelers: TE David Paulson, Oregon -- Versatile catch-first tight end with a basketball frame; marginal blocker and speed isn't good enough to consistently get open.

241. Green Bay Packers: OT Andrew Datko, Florida State -- Seasoned tackle with serious shoulder concerns. Second-round skills, medical dropped him 150 spots.

242. New York Jets: SS Antonio Allen, South Carolina -- Played regularly as part of the front eight for the Gamecocks. Special teams, good coverage skills get him on the roster.

243. Green Bay Packers: QB B.J. Coleman, UT-Chattanooga -- Tennessee transfer with plenty of arm. Question is transition against top competition, managing game against NFL pressure, coverage.

244. New York Jets: WR Jordan White, Western Michigan -- Slick route-runner understands what the coverage means to him and can be a No. 3-4 receiver for years.

241. Green Bay Packers: OT Andrew Datko, Florida State -- Seasoned tackle with serious shoulder concerns. Second-round skills, medical dropped him 150 spots.

242. New York Jets: SS Antonio Allen, South Carolina -- Played regularly as part of the front eight for the Gamecocks. Special teams, good coverage skills get him on the roster.

243. Green Bay Packers: QB B.J. Coleman, UT-Chattanooga -- Tennessee transfer with plenty of arm. Question is transition against top competition, managing game against NFL pressure, coverage.

244. New York Jets: WR Jordan White, Western Michigan -- Slick route-runner understands what the coverage means to him and can be a No. 3-4 receiver for several years, unlikely to ever be a top option.

245. Cleveland Browns: CB Tevin Wade, Arizona -- Can flip his hips and run with bigger receivers, toughness to play over his measurables, but he only plays all out when he wants to and that won't cut it at this level when you're one of the final nine players drafted.

246. Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Terrence Frederick, Texas A&M -- Started all but six games in his career and can run with most receivers.

247. Cleveland Browns: TE Brad Smelley, Alabama -- Plays hard, knows how to get open, but offers little as a receiver beyond checkdowns and intermediate routes.

248. Pittsburgh Steelers: OT Kelvin Beachum, SMU -- Practice-squad candidate because of his potential inside. Too short to play tackle in the NFL and might be a backup center option only because he lacks power, doesn't move defenders off the ball.

249. Atlanta Falcons: DT Travian Robertson, South Carolina -- Block-absorbing defensive lineman with raw power to help in short yardage.

250. San Diego Chargers: RB Edwin Baker, Michigan State -- Early entry was a starter in 2010 and is worthy of comparisons to former Spartans RB Javon Ringer, a fifth-rounder in 2009.

251. Buffalo Bills: PK John Potter, Western Michigan -- Perhaps the Bills want just a camp leg to compete with Rian Lindell. Perhaps they'll use Potter on the coverage teams -- he had 36 career tackles.

252. RB Daryl Richardson, Abilene Christian -- Several NFL players from Abilene Christian were able to stick -- Johnny Knox and Danieal Manning -- and Richardson brings 4.46 speed and good bloodlines as the younger brother of Bernard Scott, who also came from Abilene Christian.

253. Indianapolis Colts: QB Chandler Harnish, Northern Illinois -- Harnish is a capable NFL quarterback with the intelligence and leadership ability to have a long NFL career. He ranked ninth in the NFL in total offense in a spread system in 2011 and set 30 career records at NIU.
