2017 NFL Draft Round 4
108 B

Green Bay Packers select: Vince Biegel, OLB, Wisconsin Badgers
A coach's dream with high character, leadership and off the chart intangibles.  Fills a need for the Packers at LB with loss of Datone Jones and Julius Peppers

109 B+

Minnesota Vikings select: Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa Hawkeyes
Good value here in the fourth round ... helps to replace Sharrif Floyd

110 A-
Jacksonville Jaguars select: Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma Sooners
An explosive player with tremendous production scoring 17 TDs in 2016. Good addition for Blake Bortles to help stretch defenses downfield. 
111 B+
Seattle Seahawks select: Tedric Thompson, FS, Colorado Buffaloes  
Seattle knows safeties and Thompson can cover, though he will need to be a more consistent tackler. 
112 C+
Chicago Bears select: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama Crimson Tide
A four-year starter with the ability to develop into a single high safety with return ability. There are durability concerns after tearing his ACL in 2015 and fracturing his leg in 2016. 
113 C+

San Diego Chargers select: Rayshawn Jenkins, S,  Miami
A Safety prospect with good size, athleticism and an aggressive mindset ... should excel as a special teamer while he develops as a safety for the Chargers. 

114 B+

Washington Redskins select: Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
Fills a need at RB giving the Redskins a good 1-2 punch in the backfield. 

115 A

Arizona Cardinals select: Dorian Johnson, OG, Pittsburgh Panthers  
A durable, athletic guard prospect who has experience at playing some tackle as well....real value in Round 4. 

116 B+

Cincinnati Bengals select: Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn Tigers
An impressive physical specimen, Lawson will add pass rush to the Bengals defense. Short arms and durability are concerns. 

117 B

Los Angeles Rams select: Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
A three-year starter with good length and long speed to stretch a defense, but struggles against physical CBs. Another weapon to help Jared Goff in this draft. 

118 A-

Philadelphia Eagles select: Mack Hollins, WR, North Carolina 
A big and fast WR prospect with good leadership and character and will contribute on special teams. Another weapon for Carson Wentz .

119 D+

Bears select: Tarik Cohen, RB, North Carolina 
Tiny at 5'6" and 179 pounds, Cohen is a scat back-type runner that can help as a returner right away and maybe sparingly used as a Darren Sproles type of change-of-pace runner. A little early for him. 

120 B-

Vikings select: Ben Gedeon, ILB, Michigan 
A one-year starter and natural leader. Never wants to come off the field and will likely add depth at LB while contributing immediately on special teams. Helps to replace the loss of Chad Greenway

121 F

49ers select: Joe Williams, RB, Utah 
A one-year starter with good speed and athleticism, but major concerns with his commitment to football and durability. Way too early in round 4. 

122 A-

Baltimore Ravens select: Nico Siragusa, OG, San Diego State 
A strong, tough, competitive guard who consistently gets the job done. Quality pick in Round 4 for the Ravens. 

123 D

Redskins select: Montae Nicholson, S, Michigan State Spartans
An athletic safety prospect with areas to develop in both coverage and in run support. A need for Washington, but better safeties still available. 

124 C+

Detroit Lions select: Jalen Reeves-Maybin, LB, Tennessee 
A natural leader and three-year starter with starting potential, but red flags medically with multiple shoulder injuries. 

125 D

Rams select: Samson Ebukam, OLB, Eastern Washington
An athletic edge player with good speed and hustle with some ability to rush the passer. Helps fill a need, but a raw prospect many scouts considered a priority free agent. 

126 B+

Cleveland Browns select: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston Cougars
Productive CB prospect with good natural instincts and finished second in AAC in passes defended (15)  and interceptions (5). Good value here in the fourth. 

127 B-

Lions select: Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo Rockets
A one-year starter with good size and athleticism. A former basketball player who was a red-zone threat for Toledo catching 16 TDs in his only year as a starter. 

128 B

Bengals select: Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee 
Three-year starter at Tennessee Volunteers with good size and speed, who averaged 19.4 yards per catch, but a body catcher with some drops on tape. Helps add depth behind A.J. Green

129 B+

Oakland Raiders select: David Sharpe, OT, Florida Gators
A two-year starter at LT for the Gators, Sharpe has the body and the athleticism to start, but there are some concerns as he is almost blind in his right eye. 

130 B+

Houston Texans select: Julie'n Davenport, OL, Bucknell 
 A tackle prospect with longest arms in the draft. Though he needs to get stronger, he has the potential to develop into a starter. Good value in Round 4. 

131 C

New England Patriots select: Deatrich Wise, DL, Arkansas 
A powerful rotational DT prospect with some immaturity and concerns over his coachability. 

132 B

Eagles select: Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State Aztecs
Though a very undersized player at 5'8" 178 pounds, Pumphrey finished his college career as the all-time leading rusher in FBS history with 6,405 yards.   

133 B+

Dallas Cowboys select: Ryan Switzer, WR, North Carolina 
A very similar player to current Cowboys WR Cole Beasley , Switzer is a slot WR with tremendous return ability. He's likely to replace Lucky Whitehead as starting returner. 

134 A

Packers select: Jamaal Williams, RB, Brigham Young Cougars
A four-year starter that leaves BYU as the school's leading rusher. Patient and decisive reading his blocks. Will battle Ty Montgomery for the starting RB job as a rookie for the Packers. 

135 C+

Pittsburgh Steelers select: Josh Dobbs, QB, Tennessee 
A long-term developmental project QB who is very intelligent and a coach's dream off the field, but his inconsistent mechanics, accuracy and decision-making will lead to him sitting and learning behind Big Ben until the Steelers franchise QB hangs them up. 

136 D-

Atlanta Falcons select: Sean Harlow, OL, Oregon State 
A four-year starter at Oregon State Beavers with experience at both tackle positions. He's a project as a guard due to his skill set but will provide depth as he continues to develop. 

137 B-

Indianapolis Colts select: Zach Banner, OG, USC 
A decent selection this late in Round 4, Banner may slide inside to guard to utilize his big base and mauling style, but he's a good fit for the Colts, who need to do a better job of protecting Andrew Luck

138 C-

Bengals select: Ryan Glasgow, DL, Michigan 
A walk-on who made himself into a second team All-Big Ten player, Glasgow has limited pass rush ability, but he's a stout run defender and has a red-hot motor that never cools. Considered a candidate to swap to OL by some teams. 

139 D-

Eagles select: Jehu Chesson, WR, Michigan 
Fast WR prospect with stretch-the-field speed and good character and a work ethic, but he's raw and needs development. The Kansas City Chiefs reach a little taking him in Round 4. 

140 B

New York Giants select: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson 
A tough and determined runner with solid traits all around, but he doesn't stand out in any one area. Possibility he competes for reps as a rookie. 

141 A+

New York Jets select: Chad Hansen, WR, Cal
Very good value this late in the 4th round, Hansen is a very mechanically sound WR who can stretch the defense and has few holes in his game. Great pickup by Jets, but just don't know who will throw to him. 

142 B

Texans select: Carlos Watkins, DL, Clemson 
An athletic 3-technique DT prospect with good production his senior season with 13.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. A good defense adds a solid interior defensive lineman in Round 4. 

143 B

Colts select: Marlon Mack, RB, USF
A productive RB from South Florida Bulls who will spell Frank Gore as a change-of-pace runner with good elusiveness and receiving skills. 

144 C

Colts select: Grover Stewart, DL, Albany State 
A DL prospect and four-year starter at a Division II school with above-average size, good strength and all-around ability. He helps add depth to the Colts defensive line.
