Jon Dove, MockingTheDraft.com - Round 7
No. 204: Broncos select: Virgil Green, TE, Nevada Grade
This is really low for Green as many had him pegged for a 3rd round pick. He is not a blocker but has good quickness and hands.
B
No. 205: Seahawks select: Lazarius Levingston, DE, LSU Grade
Decent player that has some good physcial abilities. Not a great pass rusher but a hard nosed player.

Lindsey has a ton of experience and has played at a high level his entire career. This is a guy that has some potential.
B
No. 208: Jets select: Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama Grade
A good pick as a developmental player. He is a smart player that might max out as a very good back up.
B
No. 209: Lions select: Johnny Culbreath, OT, South Carolina State Grade
A small school player that will need to adjust to tougher competition. He is a project player.
C-
No. 210: Falcons select: Andrew Jackson, OG, Fresno State Grade
Atlanta has several free agent offensive lineman and Jackson will act as insurance. He could easily be a starting guard for the Falcons come next year.
B
No. 211: 49ers select: Bruce Miller, OLB, UCF Grade
Miller is a hard working player that has a non-stop motor. He can create some pressure.
C+

No. 213: Redskins select: Brandyn Thompson, CB, Boise State Grade
Thompson has had a successful career with good production. He has limited upside but is always around the football.
C
No. 214: Texans select: Derek Newton, OT, Arkansas State Grade
Newton doesnt have a lot of playing time against top competition but there is some potential here.
C-
No. 215: Vikings select: DŽAundre Reed, DE, Arizona Grade
Minnesota is looking to add depth to their aging defensive line. Reed has some ability to get into the backfield.
C+
No. 216: Rams select: Mikail Baker, WR, Baylor Grade
Baker has some value because he could play either safety or cornerback. The Rams need to add depth in the defensive backfield.
B
No. 217: Redskins select: Maurice Hurt, OG, Florida Grade
Hurt has good size and decent athletic ability. He is someone that will likely make the roster and provide some depth.
B-
No. 218: Packers select: Ryan Taylor, TE, North Carolina Grade
Taylor is not even the best UNC TE in this draft. This is a guy that will have a hard time making the roster.
D
No. 219: Patriots select: Malcolm Williams, CB, TCU Grade
Williams has a good feel for the game and has a chance to develop. He will need a strong camp catch on the Pats roster.
C

Chapas is a big player with some athletic ability. He can lay down a block and also make a tough catch.
C+
No. 221: Giants select: DaŽRel Scott, RB, Maryland Grade
The Giants love to use a few running backs and Scott has upside. He has good speed and is a tough runner.
B
No. 222: Buccaneers select: Anthony Gaitor, CB, Florida International Grade
Good player that I feel will find away on the field. He has a nose for the ball which he combines with good athletic ability.
B+
No. 223: Chiefs select: Shane Bannon, FB, Shane Bannon Grade
Bannon has had good production but is not the type of athlete that will be able to succeed in the NFL.
D
No. 224: Redskins select: Markus White, DE, Florida State Grade
White can get into the backfield and create some pressure. Washington set out to improve their front 7.
C
No. 225: Ravens select: Anthony Allen, RB, Georgia Tech Grade
Many believe that Willis McGehee will not return next season so adding depth at the position is a must. Allen is a bit underrated and could have gone higher.
B
No. 226: Saints select: Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh Grade
Injuries are what pushed Romeus this far down in the Draft. He has the ability to get to the quarterback and create pressure.
B+
No. 227: Jets select: Scotty McKnight, WR, Colorado Grade
McKnight has some ability but was hurt by poor quarterback play. He is a reliable target.
B-
No. 228: Rams select: Jabara Williams, OLB, Stephen F. Austin Grade
This is a guy that was unlikely to be draft but lands in the 7th round. He had decent production but didnt dominate vs less talent.
D
No. 229: Rams select: Jonathan Nelson, FS, Oklahoma Grade
More depth for the Rams secondary. Nelson is tight in the hips and will struggle to flip and run with a receiver.

No. 230: Falcons select: Cliff Matthews, DE, South Carolina Grade
Matthews had a good career in the SEC as someone that creates pressure. He some workout mistakes and it hurt his stock.

Kearse will be a 5 technique defensive end. He a strong anchor and good quickness.
B+
No. 232: Steelers select: Baron Batch, RB, Texas Tech Grade
Good production but will have to adjust to a new offensive system. The running lanes at Texas Tech were wide b/c of their spread system.
C-
No. 233: Packers select: Lawrence Guy, DT, Arizona State Grade
Guy will likely end up as a 5 technique defensive end. Guy has potential and represents good value in round 7.
B
No. 234: Chargers select: Andrew Gachkar, OLB, Missouri Grade
Missouri played an agressive style of defense which allowed Gachkar to make plays.
C
No. 235: Dolphins select: Jimmy Wilson, CB, Montana Grade

D
No. 236: Vikings select: Stephen Burton, WR, West Texas A&M Grade
Burton has good size at 6'1 220lbs but is a real project. He going to need time to learn the NFL game.
C-
No. 237: Eagles select: Greg Lloyd, ILB, Connecticut Grade
Lloyd is always around the football and making plays. This last season he suffered a knee injury which cut his season short.
C+
No. 238: Buccaneers select: Daniel Hardy, WR, Idaho Grade
Hardy had the luxury of playing for a team that liked to utilize his abilities. He is a reliable target.

No. 240: Eagles select: Stanley Havili, FB, Southern California Grade
Havili was my top rated FB. He is strong runner that is able to make some catches out of the backfield.

A big physical wide receiver that was overshadowed by the rest of the stars at USC.
C+

Good production and a decent player. He is good incoverage but is not overally explosive.
C
No. 243: Saints select: Nate Bussey, OLB, Illinois Grade
Bussey is a hard hitter that has a nose for the football. He has a very good job of being a standout special teamer.
B+
No. 244: Panthers select: Lee Ziemba, OT, Auburn Grade

Finley was one of few playmakes on Baylor. He had a productive career and has some speed.
C-
No. 247: Broncos select: Jeremy Beal, OLB, Oklahoma Grade
Beal was a good player at Oklahoma but he a limited athlete. His poor workout numbers are what impacted his fall.
B
No. 248: Browns select: Eric Hagg, FS, Nebraska Grade
Hagg is limited in coverage but is a punishing tackler. He is going to be the safety that plays up close to the line.
C+
No. 249: Cardinals select: DeMarco Sampson, WR, San Diego State Grade
Sampson dropped to the 7th round due to an injury history. He was overshadowed by Vincent Brown but is a good player in his own right.
C
No. 250: 49ers select: Curtis Holcomb, CB, Florida A&M Grade
The 49ers have added a lot of players in the secondary. Here in the 7th round they could have added depth elsewhere.

A small school corner that is an athlete that will need time to develop.
