Jon Dove, MockingTheDraft.com - Round 4
No. 98: Panthers select: Brandon Hogan, CB, West Virginia Grade
This team needs help on defense at all levels. Hogan has good speed and will help on special teams and add depth.
No. 99: Seahawks select: K.J. Wright, OLB, Mississippi State Grade
This is a solid pick as right is ready to contribute early. The linebacker class is thin but Wright is a good prospect.
No. 100: Bills select: DaŽNorris Searcy, SS, North Carolina Grade
Buffalo added a that can play either corner or safety. This team needed help on defense and that is what they are addressing.
No. 101: Bengals select: Clint Boling, OG, Georgia Grade
This is a great pick as Boling has 2nd round talent. The Bengals are aging up front so this pick will help.
No. 102: Browns select: Jordan Cameron, WR, North Carolina Grade
The Browns need to give Colt McCoy more weapons. Cameron has been a fast riser that will help in the passing game.
No. 103: Cardinals select: Sam Acho, OLB, Texas Grade
Arizona is looking to replace Joey Porter and Acho is more than capable. He has good speed off the edge and will bring the pressure.
No. 104: Buccaneers select: Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee Grade
Stocker has good size and solid hands. He is the most complete tight end in this draft with the ability to both block and catch.
No. 105: Redskins select: Roy Helu, RB, Nebraska Grade
Very good selection here because the Redskins had a need at running back. Helu is a tough runner but lacks break away speed.
No. 106: Vikings select: Christian Ballard, TE, Notre Dame Grade
Due to some off the field issues Ballard dropped but represents good value. Ballard can play either DT or DE.
No. 107: Seahawks select: Kris Durham, WR, Georgia Grade
This is another reach by the Seahawks which has been the theme of their draft. Durham has good size but doesnt bring much else to the table.
No. 108: Broncos select: Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma Grade
John Fox is really putting his stamp on this team. Carter will complement Rahim Moore and form a good safety tandem.
No. 109: Titans select: Colin McCarthy, ILB, Miami (Fla.) Grade
The Titans needed to address their linebacking corps. McCarthy will be a guy that makes tackles but wont be flashy.
No. 110: Cowboys select: David Arkin, OG, Missouri State Grade
Arkin is a small school player but has some upside. Dallas needs depth on the offensive line.
No. 111: Dolphins select: Edmund Gates, WR, Abilene Christian Grade
This is a very good pick because it represents value. Gates could have been a 2nd round pick as someone that has a ton of speed.
No. 112: Rams select: Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii Grade
Sam Bradford is the future in St. Louis and he needs weapons. Salas has good hands and will be a slot player.
No. 113: Raiders select: Chimdi Chekwa, CB, Ohio State Grade
Al Davis strikes again as he continues to value speed. Chekwa is fast but was not a very good cover corner.
No. 114: Jaguars select: Cecil Shorts III, WR, Mount Union Grade
The Jags needed to add depth on the outside. Shorts is a good player but might need some time to develop.
No. 115: 49ers select: Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State Grade
The 49ers have a few good running backs but you always need depth. Hunter is quick and can catch the ball out of the backfield.
No. 116: Eagles select: Casey Matthews, ILB, Oregon Grade
Linebacker depth has been an issue for the Eagles. Matthews can play either inside or outside due to his good instincts.
No. 117: Giants select: James Brewer, OT, Indiana Grade
The offensive line in New York is aging so they need to bring in depth. Brewer is a right tackle prospect with good strenght.
No. 118: Chiefs select: Jalil Brown, CB, Colorado Grade
Jalil Brown played opposite Jimmy Smith in Colorado. Brown is a very good player that at times outshined Smith.
No. 119: Colts select: Delone Carter, RB, Syracuse Grade
Carter- Indy ran out of running backs a few times this last season. Carter has good potential and will demand carries.
No. 120: Eagles select: Alex Henery, K, Nebraska Grade
This is a bit early for a kicker but Henery is by far the best in this class. David Akers is getting older and Henery could be the future.
No. 121: Jaguars select: Chris Prosinski, FS, Wyoming Grade
The Jags need help in the back end of their defense. Prosinski has limited upside but will be a solid player.
No. 122: Bills select: Chris Hairston, OT, Clemson Grade
The Bills likely selected their starting right tackle in Chris Hairston. He is a good player that I felt was underrated.
No. 123: Ravens select: Tandon Doss, WR, Indiana Grade
The Ravens wanted to add speed to their receiving corps. Doss has good size and speed but dropped because of some poor workouts.
No. 124: Browns select: Owen Marecic, FB, Stanford Grade
Marecic is a two way player that can play either fullback or linebacker. He will likely be a special team standout.
No. 125: Raiders select: Taiwan Jones, RB, Eastern Washington Grade
Al Davis sticks with this speed picks. Jones is very fast but struggles with injuries and fumbles.
No. 126: Jets select: Bilal Powell, RB, Louisville Grade
This looks like a luxury pick as the Jets have plenty of running back depth. Powell has a ton of speeds and is a homerun threat.
No. 127: Texans select: Rashad Carmichael, CB, Virginia Tech Grade
The Texans had a terrible secondary and needed to address it. Carmichael brings good value here with good coverage skills.
No. 128: Steelers select: Cortez Allen, CB, Citadel Grade
The Steelers corners are aging so adding youth and talent was important. However, this is a bit high for Allen.
No. 129: Broncos select: Julius Thomas, TE, Portland State Grade
Josh McDaniels had a different view on tight ends which gutted the roster. So John Fox needed to go out and bring some depth.
No. 130: Titans select: Jamie Harper, RB, Clemson Grade
Jamie Harper had a disappointing career at Clemson. He has good size and speed but just never put it all together on the field. He a lot of upside.
No. 131: Packers select: Davon House, CB, New Mexico State Grade
Charles Woodson will not be able to play forever. House represents great value at this point in the draft. He has good coverage and athletic ability.
