Grades:• • • • • • Round 7
219. Danny Etling, QB, LSU
Etling lacks accuracy on any level of the field and gets overly antsy against pressure. Good arm. Limited mobility.
220. Alex McGough, QB, Florida International
Quick-release QB with above-average arm. Can scramble a bit. Not a natural pocket mover.
221. Matthew Adams, OLB, Houston
Big, strong off-ball LB. limited range. Two-down, between-the-tackles thumper.
222. Jermaine Kelly, CB, San Jose State
Tall, skinny cornerback. Not overly productive in college. Better athlete than player at this point.
223. Julian Taylor, DT, Temple
Has DE size. Flourished on the inside with hand use and burst. Can learn from DeForest Buckner and Arik Armstead, two other tall interior rushers on that roster.
224. Davon Wims, WR, Georgia
Impressive high-point ability. Consistently comes down with the football in tight coverage. Good, not great athlete. Quality add for Trubisky this late.
225. Devante Downs, CB, California
Tall, bulky off-ball linebacker. Major hitter inside. If he gets faster, he can be productive against the run.
226. David Williams, RB, Arkansas
Not a twitchy athlete. Wins on inside runs with vision and subtle cutting ability.
227. Quentin Poling, ILB, Ohio
Ideal type of player to grab this late. Superior athletic talents. Just needs to react quicker and click it into top gear faster. Solid coverage ability too.
228. Marcell Ateman, WR, Oklahoma State
High-point and contested-catch extraordinaire. Tall, well-built. Could actually stand to add more weight. Quality body control near sidelines. Just lacks speed and twitchiness.
229. Jason Sanders, K, New Mexico
Very accurate but doesn't have a huge leg.
230. Leon Jacobs, OLB, Wisconsin
Older prospect but rocked up and uses his hands well. Twitchy but lacks bend on the edge. Has versatility as an off-ball linebacker too. Small linebacker. Former safety who springs around the second level and finds the football often. Gets engulfed by big OLs at times. Quicker than fast. Quality in coverage.
231. Travin Howard, OLB, TCU
Small linebacker. Former safety who bounces around the second level and finds the football often. Gets engulfed by big OLs at times. Quicker than fast. Quality in coverage.
232. James Looney, DT, California
High-cut interior defensive linemen with active but not overly powerful hands. Impressive athletically. Must add strength at the next level. Sub-package rusher for Pettine.
233. Jordan Mailata, OT, South Sydney, Australia
Rugby player with ridiculous size, power athleticism. Has yet to play a down of football. His measureables make him worthy of a flier this late.
234. Andre Smith, ILB, North Carolina
Two-down run-plugger who lacks the speed to get to the corner on outside runs or make plays in coverage. Injuries limited his playing time in 2017.
235. Zaire Franklin, OLB, Syracuse
High-energy run-stopper who lacks change-of-direction ability and isn't strong enough to beat blocks with any regularity. Indy did need linebacker depth though.
236. Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama
Rare combination of size, cutting ability and top-end speed. Lacks in the vision department and had plenty of big holes at Alabama. Bruising back who would be logical stand-in for Zeke Elliott if need be.
237. Nick Bawden, FB, San Diego State
Former quarterback who converted to fullback. Very willing to find someone to hit but isn't very accurate at the second level. When he finds his target, he delivers a major pop.
238. Zach Sieler, DE, Ferris State
Body of a bigger DE. Pro Day put him on the radar of NFL teams. Above-average quickness. Needs to get more refined with his hand use.
239. Hunter Bradley, LS, Mississippi
Long-snapper? This is a very questionable decision.
240. Richie James, WR, Middle Tennessee
James is shorter and has a small frame, but he's electric with the ball in his hands. Plus cutting ability, vision, and acceleration. Quality deep threat with impressive body control. Injuries derailed his 2017 after spectacular 2016.
241. Greg Stroman, CB, Virginia Tech
Highly productive slot cornerback who will get his hands on plenty of passes due to athleticism, awareness and vast experience at the college level. Quicker than fast.
242. Kendrick Norton, DT, Miami
Norton is an immovable force at nose who flashes heavy hands. More depth on the inside for Carolina after losing Star Lotulelei in free agency. Awesome pick.
243. Keion Crossen, CB, Western Carolina
Patriots need more CB help, and Crossen can play in the slot. Not much production in college, but he runs well and is active against the run.
244. Justin Lawler, DE, Southern Methodist
Short-armed, limited athlete who consistently wins with strong, active hands and plays with a non-stop motor. Another Wade Phillips project who's primed to outplay his draft position.
245. Will Clapp, C, LSU
Very experienced, more of a technician than spectacular athlete. Sturdy against bull rushes. Can be susceptible to counters. Accurate at the second level.
246. Joshua Frazier, DT, Alabama
Classic, block-eating Alabama nose tackle. Slow feet. Uses his heavy hands well but doesn't have pass-rush ability. His height hurts him against low-center-of-gravity interior linemen.
247. Logan Cooke, P, Mississippi State
Some power but doesn't have a huge leg. So. Many. Punters.
248. Kendall Donnerson, OLB, Southeastern Missouri State
Supreme athlete who is extremely raw as an edge-rusher. Currently doesn't have pass-rushing moves. Gets locked onto blockers often. Quality size and strength too.
249. Logan Woodside, QB, Toledo
Productive, quick-strike QB with good accuracy at short and intermediate levels. Decent arm. Can improvise but isn't a natural pocket drifter.
250. Ryan Izzo, TE, Florida State
Some moments of reliability on third down. Lacks after the catch and isn't a true seam-stretcher because of his lack of speed. Not a people-mover in line either.
251. Justin Jackson, RB, Northwestern
Crafty, super-productive zone runner who thrives due to vision and keen block-reading as opposed to explosiveness or speed. Nice depth added to L.A.'s backfield this late.
252. Rod Taylor, OG, Mississippi
Phone-booth blocker who won't get pushed around inside. Lacks lateral agility and quickness to the second level.
253. Auden Tate, WR, Florida State
Poor combine potentially was the reason his stock plummeted. Plays faster and quicker on the field. Fluid mover at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds. Awesome high-pointing ability.
254. Korey Cunningham, OT, Cincinnati
NFL OT size with impressive feet and athleticism. Experienced on the edge. Lacks balance and is susceptible to counter moves. Good flier this late for Arizona.
255. Austin Proehl, WR, North Carolina
Crafty, YAC wideout who wins with sharp route running and impressive athleticism. Good body control and concentration to make catches outside his frame. Had an injury in 2017.
256. Trey Quinn, WR, Southern Methodist
Quicker than fast YAC pass-catcher. Strong hands. Great elusiveness and vision in the open field.
