Jon Dove of NFLMocks.com analyzes each pick from Round 4 of the 2010 NFL Draft, grading each team on their selections.

Jon Dove, NFLMocks.com - Round 4
No. 99: Rams select: Mardy Gilyard, WR, CincinnatiGrade
Analysis: Mardy Gilyard is a good pick for the Rams. They need a lot of talent at the wide out position and Gilyard is an electric playmaker. He will help out on special teams too.
B+
No. 100: Vikings select: Everson Griffen, DE, USCGrade
Analysis: The Vikings get a 1st round talent here in the 4th round. Griffen slipped because he is inconsistent. Griffen gives some insurance if Ray Edwards holds out this year.
A
No. 101: Buccaneers select: Mike Williams, WR, SyracuseGrade
Analysis: Mike Williams is a gifted player but will he show up? He quit the Syracuse football team last season and there are character issues. However, in the 4th round he has a ton of talent and if he focuses he could be a difference maker.
C+
No. 102: Texans select: Darryl Sharpton, ILB, MiamiGrade
Analysis: Sharpton is on the smaller size but he has speed and heart. He has experience at a few different linebacker spots. He can contribute right away on special teams.
B
No. 103: Redskins select: Perry Riley, OLB, LSUGrade
Analysis: Riley has good size and speed. He has a ton of game experience at LSU. He might be able to move inside with the Redskins new 3-4 defensive scheme.
B
No. 104: Titans select: Alterraun Verner, CB, UCLAGrade
Analysis: Verner has experience but there are questions about his speed. Verner would fit best in a zone coverage defense b/c it will allow him to use his good instincts.
C+
No. 105: Eagles select: Trevard Lindley, CB, KentuckyGrade
Analysis: Trevard Lindley is a good corner. He has nice height but is on the skinny side. Last season Lindley would have been a 2nd round pick but injury concerns is what dropped him to round 4.
B+
No. 106: Raiders select: Bruce Campbell, OT, MarylandGrade
Analysis: The Raiders are having a very good draft. There were many draft experts thinking the Raiders would have selected Campbell in the first round, and now they get him in the 4th. Campbell and Veldheer are nice building blocks for a poor Raiders line.
A+
No. 107: Bills select: Marcus Easley, WR, ConnecticutGrade
Analysis: Easley has talent and with development could actually make an impact. He has good speed (not great) and nice size. He can jump up and get the ball high but there are concerns about his hands.
B+
No. 108: Raiders select: Jacoby Ford, WR, ClemsonGrade
Analysis: Speed, speed, and more speed. Ford is a track champ and is what Al Davis likes in a wide out. Ford is more productive then his numbers suggest. He will need work learning routes but he does have nice hands.
B
No. 109: Bears select: Corey Wootton, DE, NorthwesternGrade
Analysis: Corey Wotten will have a chance to make an impact for the Bears. Wotten's injury concerns are what lead to his drop. He will have a shot to slid into the Left End position.
B
No. 110: Chargers select: Darrell Stuckey, SS, KansasGrade
Analysis: Stuckey is a nice prospect. He has good size and speed but doesn't have the best ball skills. He also isnt the best tackler.
C
No. 111: Seahawks select: Walter Thurmond, CB, OregonGrade
Analysis: Thurmond has health concerns and poor instincts. He will need some coaching to make an impact. There are better corners out there.
C
No. 112: Jets select: Joe McKnight, RB, USCGrade
Analysis: McKnight is some insurance if Leon Washington doesnt make a full recovery. McKnight has good speed and ability but didnt put it all together at USC.
B+
No. 113: Patriots select: Aaron Hernandez, TE, FloridaGrade
Analysis: Aaron Hernandez is a great pass catcher and he can stretch the field. He struggles with blocking and that might be an issue in the Pats offense.
B+
No. 114: Ravens select: Dennis Pitta, TE, BYUGrade
Analysis: Pitta is more of a complete tight end than Hernandez but still needs to improve his blocking. However, he is dangerous in the passing game and adds another threat to the Ravens.
B
No. 115: Giants select: Phillip Dillard, ILB, NebraskaGrade
Analysis: The Giants needed a linebacker and this guy fits the mold.
B
No. 116: Steelers select: Thaddeus Gibson, OLB, Ohio StateGrade
Analysis: Gibson has tons of talent, but he needs to put it all together. Good pick but needs time to develop.
B
No. 117: Falcons select: Joe Hawley, C, UNLVGrade
Analysis: Hawley is not the best center left and is bit of a reach here. They could have filled this post later in the draft.
C-
No. 118: Texans select: Garrett Graham, TE, WisconsinGrade
Analysis: Graham is nice insurance at TE position. Houston continues to fill positions and build this team.
B
No. 119: Dolphins select: A.J. Edds, OLB, IowaGrade
Analysis: Miami gets a nice pick with AJ Edds. He is a solid player that is always in the right position. He isnt the most athletic but he works hard. He is a Parcels guy.
B
No. 120: Bengals select: Geno Atkins, DT, GeorgiaGrade
Analysis: Geno Atkins had a good Senior Bowl but he is undersized and will get pushed around. He will work hard but is mainly a rotation guy.
C+
No. 121: Eagles select: Keenan Clayton, OLB, OklahomaGrade
Analysis: Clayton fits the Eagles linebacker mold. He is smaller but fast, he has experience at Oklahoma and comes with a winning attitude. The Eagles need depth and talent at the position and Clayton may develop into a contributor.
B
No. 122: Eagles select: Mike Kafka, QB, NorthwesternGrade
Analysis: Kafka is a nice developmental quarterback. He is a winner and played very well at Northwestern. Kafka has ability and good size for the position. He will need time but it's a good pick.
B+
No. 123: Saints select: Al Woods, DT, LSUGrade
Analysis: Al Woods will add some beef up front for the Saints. He gives the Saints another talented player to rotate in.
C
No. 124: Panthers select: Eric Norwood, OLB, South CarolinaGrade
Analysis: Eric Norwood is a good pass rusher but might be undersized. He would have fit better in a 3-4 defense. With limited picks the Panthers could have went with Cam Thomas to add a DT.
D+
No. 125: Eagles select: Clay Harbor, FB/TE, Missouri StateGrade
Analysis: Harbor has talent but there are better tight ends out there. Dorin Dickerson would have fit the Philly mold.
D
No. 126: Cowboys select: Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB, Indiana (Pa.)Grade
Analysis: The Cowboys add some nice depth at cornerback. Owusu- Ansah is fast and instinctive. He could have went a lot higher.
A
No. 127: Seahawks select: E.J. Wilson, DE, North CarolinaGrade
Analysis: The Seahawks got a pass rusher in EJ Wilson. He adds depth to a position of need. Can contribute right away.
B
No. 128: Lions select: Jason Fox, OT, MiamiGrade
Analysis: Jason Fox's future is at right tackle. He needs some time to develop but might be insurance for Cherlius.
B
No. 129: Colts select: Jacques McClendon, G, TennesseeGrade
Analysis: The Colts let some players go this season along their offensive line. McClendon adds nice depth.
B-
No. 130: Cardinals select: O'Brian Schofield, OLB, WisconsinGrade
Analysis: Schofield is a great pick here. Schofield suffered an injury at the Senior Bowl but before that he was in the 1st round discussion. He lives in the offensive backfield. If he recovers from the injury he has a lot of upside.
A+
No. 131: Bengals select: Roddrick Muckelroy, OLB, TexasGrade
Analysis: Muckelroy comes from a winning program at Texas but there are question marks. He lacks ideal size and speed but his winning attitude will help him overcome his limits.
