Grades: Round 1Round 2Round 3Round 4Round 5Round 6Round 7

63AChiefs select: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati

He might be the best tight end in this class. He had some off-field issues, but this kid is Jason Witten, Part II.

64BJaguars select: Dwayne Gratz, CB, Connecticut

They needed help at corner and this kid fills the need. He is a solid cover player. He will compete to start right away.

65BLions select: Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky

He is a road grader guard who will be an immediate starter. He faced a lot of top competition and handled himself well.

66BRaiders select: Sio Moore, OLB, Connecticut

He's an athletic linebacker who can rush and chase down backs. The Raiders get another productive player.

67AEagles select: Bennie Logan, DT, LSU

This is one of the biggest steals of the draft. Logan is a productive player who will be better on the next level. Love this pick.

68B-Browns select: Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State

He is a nice cover corner, but he's small. That's a concern. I might have taken Jordan Poyer here.

69B-Cardinals select: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU

He is a good player, if he can stay out of trouble. But he has Patrick Peterson to keep him in line.

70BTitans select: Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut

He fills a need to help upgrade the corner spot in a division that features Andrew Luck. He will be the nickel corner.

71D+Rams select: T.J. McDonald, FS, Southern California

He is stiff and reminds me more of an old-time safety. He doesn't have range.

72B-Jets select: Brian Winters, OG, Kent State

I like drafting college tackles to move inside and play guard. He is a tough guy.

73BBuccaneers select: Mike Glennon, QB, North Carolina State

This speaks about Josh Freeman as much as anything. Glennon has a big arm, but he is a statue in the pocket.

74A-Cowboys select: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor

This kid has first-round potential. For a team that has two good receivers, this is a heck of pick. One of my favorites.

75A-Saints select: Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff

He is from a small school but he is a big, nasty player who fills a need.

76B-Chargers select: Keenan Allen, WR, California

He is a nice, polished receiver who comes in the third round when some had him in the first. The injury concerns are there, however.

77B-Dolphins select: Dallas Thomas, OT, Tennessee

This is a need for the Dolphins. Now they can keep Jonathan Martin on the right side.

78ABills select: Marquise Goodwin, WR, Texas

This is great speed value for the Bills. I love this move. He can fly.

79BSteelers select: Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State

Some coaches raved about this kid being one of the best receivers in the draft. He is a class third-round WR pick by Pittsburgh.

80BCowboys select: J.J. Wilcox, SS, Georgia Southern

The Cowboys have a big hole at safety and this is a kid who has been rising lately. He is a big, tough safety.

81BGiants select: Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M

The Giants know how to find defensive ends. It's hard to knock them when they take them.

82CSaints select: Johnathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

The concern with Jenkins is his weight. If he can control it, he is a good player in the middle of their defense.

83B+Patriots select: Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers

There were some scouts who thought he might have a chance to go into the first round. This is a need pick.

84B+Bengals select: Shawn Williams, SS, Georgia

He is a rangy safety who will address a position of need in the back end. I like that.

85B+Redskins select: Jordan Reed, TE, Florida

He is a pass-catching tight end whom the Redskins will love. Fred Davis is coming off a season-ending injury, so it makes sense.

86C+Colts select: Hugh Thornton, OG, Illinois

He is a tough-guy guard that goes to a team in need of it.

87B+Seahawks select: Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State

This is a vintage Seahawks pick. They get it. This is a productive inside player on a team that faced a lot of adversity.

88A49ers select: Corey Lemonier, DE, Auburn

This is another 49ers steal. He is a little light to play defensive end, but he can step in and play outside 3-4 rush linebacker.

89BTexans select: Brennan Williams, OT, North Carolina

He is an athletic tackle who will push for time at right tackle -- a position of need -- for the Texans.

90CBroncos select: Kayvon Webster, CB, South Florida

Corner is an issue in terms of age. He's a solid player, but this was a little high. They hit on Chris Harris as an undrafted though, so who knows?

91DPatriots select: Duron Harmon, SS, Rutgers

Is the reach here for the Patriots? They've done it before. It looks like it.

92A-Rams select: Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia

They got Austin and now Bailey. Nice job by the Rams. This kid is polished.

93B-Dolphins select: Will Davis, CB, Utah State

It's a need pick, and he has some cover skills, but he needs to get stronger.

94B-Ravens select: Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern State

He's a big, wide body from a small school who showed well in the postseason. Terrence Cody has been a disappointment, so to makes sense.

95B-Texans select: Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU

If he can stay on the field, this is a steal. A lot of teams had concerns about his character.

96B-Chiefs select: Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas

He has injuries that have slowed him and that are a concern. If on the field, he has speed. And we know Andy Reid likes to throw to his backs.

97B-Titans select: Zaviar Gooden, OLB, Missouri

The Titans love linebackers who can run, and they get another one with the last pick of the third round.
