1. QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson (6–6, 220, Junior)
He’s the closest to a “sure thing” we’ve seen entering the draft since Andrew Luck in 2012. Size, arm talent, athleticism, pocket presence and awareness, game experience, big-game experience, quality wins, temperament and character. He’s the complete package.
2. OT Penei Sewell, Oregon (6-5, 331, Junior)
Sewell is a special prospect who won the Outland Trophy as the nation’s best offensive lineman as a sophomore in 2019 and then opted out this past season. He is still only 20 years old, and his rare athleticism, foot quickness and agility for a man his size make him a generational prospect at left tackle. Unfortunately, the fact he won’t last past the first five to seven picks makes him cost prohibitive for the Bears.
3. TE Kyle Pitts, Florida (6-6, 245, Junior)
Pitts is a rare prospect whose blend of athleticism, size, speed, huge hands and enormous catch radius make it tough to find a comp for him. Maybe a faster Tony Gonzalez? Pitts is a willing blocker but will almost certainly be more of a U than Y tight end as he will be the best receiver on the field many Sundays. It’s hard to imagine how NFL defenses will approach covering him as there are no cornerbacks big and strong enough, no safeties with his athleticism and no linebackers who can run with him. There is no such thing as a can’t-miss prospect in the NFL, but Pitts may be as close as it gets.
4. WR Ja’Marr Chase, LSU (6–0, 201, Junior)
He was productive as a true freshman starting half of LSU’s games and was then voted the best wideout in college football (Biletnikoff Award) as a sophomore even before he had a monster national title game against Clemson. Chase is a phenomenal athlete and as graceful as they come, but he will have to prove he can defeat jams at the line of scrimmage. He has just one full season of tape as a starter.
5. LB Micah Parsons, Penn St. (6–3, 246, Junior)
As close as it gets to a sure thing, Parsons has the size, frame and athleticism to play any of the four linebacker spots, and, of course, he’s out of “Linebacker U.” His best comp might be a slightly smaller Brian Urlacher, a special combo of athleticism and speed who loves to play the game but is still learning to play the position with the skills to line up almost anywhere on the field.
6. CB Patrick Surtain II, Alabama (6–2, 208, Junior)
His dad, Patrick Surtain, was a Pro Bowl cornerback and now a high school coach so as you’d hope, Surtain is more than just a special athlete with outstanding size for the position. He appears to be NFL ready with excellent technique and outstanding man-to-man cover abilities. With starts in Alabama’s last 38 consecutive games, you can count on him to show up every Sunday.
7. WR DeVonta Smith, Alabama (6-0, 170, Senior)
Smith is another Biletnikoff Award winner, and unlike Chase after a huge 2019 campaign, he passed on an option to enter the draft and not only played in 2020, he won the Heisman Trophy. He was often the most dominant player on the field for the Tide and got better in each of his four seasons in Tuscaloosa. A big play waiting to happen, he is an extremely high character kid with only one red flag but it’s a big one. At 170 pounds he stayed healthy in college but...
8. QB Trey Lance, North Dakota St. (6-4, 224, Redshirt Sophomore)
Several of these kids have “Mitch Trubisky disease” – severely limited college experience – and Lance is one with only 17 college starts and 314 pass attempts in FCS ball. But I have him at No. 2 because his skill set and scouting report most closely remind me of Josh Allen, one of the few first-round QBs to make it in recent years. Classic boom-or-bust pick.
9. CB Jaycee Horn, South Carolina (6-1, 206, Junior)
Horn is another plus-size corner with NFL genes (dad Joe was a wide receiver for the Saints) and he is also outstanding in man coverage. He was sturdy and dependable with 19 consecutive starts before opting out after Week 7 last season. What leaves him behind Surtain is still developing ball skills, and he’ll need to prove he can get a bit more physical.
10. OG/OT Rashawn Slater, Northwestern (6-3 ½, 305 Senior)
Slater also opted out in 2020 but excelled at both left and right tackle after starting every game as a true freshman on the right side. He is an exceptional prospect with a sky-high ceiling, but the problem here is he is small for tackle, and the majority of teams I’ve talked to are projecting him at guard at the next level. The Bears need big, pure tackles. They don’t need any more guard-tackle hybrids. Like Sewell, however, he will be long gone by the 20th pick.
11. LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (6-1 ½, 221, Redshirt Junior)
This kid looks small, but he’s another Roquan Smith, Devin Bush, Patrick Queen, Devin White clone. All undersized inside linebackers who are dominating the NFL today with their speed, athleticism, instincts and play-making ability. Unlike any of them he may fit better at safety than linebacker, but wherever he ends up, he’s going to make plays.
12. RB Travis Etienne, Clemson (5-10, 215, Senior)
Etienne has been remarkably productive from the moment he landed on campus at Clemson, finishing his four-year career with an ACC record 4,952 yards rushing, a 7.2 average, and became an impact receiver as a junior with 37 receptions for 11.7 yards per catch and added 48-12.3 last season. He also has some kickoff and punt return experience. Only concern may be the wear on his tires after 55 games in college, 686 carries and a lot of very tough yards earned.
13. WR Jaylen Waddle, Alabama (5-9 ½, 180, Junior)
This kid is an explosion waiting to happen with 11 TDs at Alabama going for 50 yards or more. On his first day in the NFL he’ll be a contestant for fastest player in the league and he will scare the daylight out of opposing special teams coaches as both a punt and kickoff return threat. The concern here is his size and the fact he hasn’t faced a lot of press and man coverage. He started just 12 games in three seasons and caught just 106 passes, but 17 receptions went for TDs.
14. QB Zach Wilson, BYU (6-2, 215, Junior)
Wilson has more experience, with 30 starts in college, but most of it was pretty unimpressive until a breakout 2020 season. He has plenty of arm talent and even more confidence, but he’s a one-year wonder with a ton left to prove.
15. QB Justin Fields, Ohio St., (6-3, 227, Junior)
Excellent size and athleticism, good if not great arm and plenty of toughness give him a chance to be a very good one. Some scouts are downgrading him because of his proximity to Haskins, but I don’t see a lot of similarities. I am concerned about his field awareness, however, and how it will translate at the next level.
16. EDGE Kwity Paye, Michigan (6–2 ½, 261, Senior)
Paye is pretty much the consensus top edge rush prospect in this draft because of his character, toughness, leadership qualities and a nonstop motor. But much of his effectiveness at Michigan came from lining up all over the field and the mismatches it created for him. He did a lot of damage lining up inside with a hand on the ground, which may not translate to the next level. He’ll have to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, which he hasn’t done much yet, to deliver maximum production.
17. DT Christian Barmore, Alabama (6–4, 310, Redshirt Sophomore)
Barmore showed signs of being a game wrecker in 2020 with 9½ tackles for loss and a team-leading eight sacks from the tackle position, and he was the defensive MVP of the national championship game. He plays with great explosion and initial quickness, and his hands and punch are to be feared. Barmore easily is the cream of this year’s crop.
18. OT Christian Darrisaw, Virginia Tech (6-5, 322, Junior)
This is the second-best pure left tackle prospect, and although it’s hard to see him lasting until 20 for the Bears, he could slip into the 15-to-19 range where the Bears aren’t priced out of a trade up. He is athletically gifted, and his natural talent is through the roof. The only questions from a few scouts are is he nasty enough and can he stay focused and obsessed for a full 60 minutes. When his motor is on, he can be as good as they get.
19. OT/OG Alijah Vera-Tucker, USC (6-5, 308, Redshirt Junior)
Vera-Tucker started at left guard as a sophomore and left tackle as a junior, but unlike Slater, he has the size to play tackle, although his arms are a tad shorter than you’d like. But he has the frame to easily add 10 to 20 pounds in the weight room without losing quickness and the special athleticism and feet you want in a left tackle.
20. CB Greg Newsome, Northwestern (6-0, 190, Junior)
Newsome has very good size but is a notch below the big two at the top. He has all of the skill and technique you look for in a first-round corner, but injuries have been an issue, causing him to miss half his freshman year in Evanston and all of his sophomore season. He was then injured in game seven of the 2020 season, causing him to miss the Big Ten championship game and then sit out the Citrus Bowl to get ready for the draft.
21. LB Azeez Ojulari, Georgia (6-2, 249, Redshirt Sophomore)
He’s built to play the outside rush linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, plays it with a purpose and is a born finisher. He looks like he lives in the weight room and has developed real aggression on the field but actually is somewhat introverted and quiet off it. There is some concern about his ability to shed blockers, but with enhanced technique he may be special.
22. WR Kadarius Toney, Florida (6-0, 193, Senior)
Injuries plagued him at Florida, but he had a huge senior year. His ceiling is sky high as a slot guy in the NFL, but he will need some patience. We’re not sure he runs the entire route tree and will need to see more of his hands and contested ball ability, but Toney is an explosion waiting to happen. If he develops a full complement of tools, he could be the best of this year’s deep crop of pass catchers.
23. EDGE Jaelan Phillips, Miami (Fla.) (6-5 ½, 260, Redshirt Junior)
Phillips missed half his freshman year at UCLA due to injury, decided to transfer to Miami and had to sit out 2019, so last season is his only full year of tape, but he does dominate on a lot of it. His much bigger frame gives him options. He could line up outside in a 3-4 or possibly be a hand on the ground right end in a 40 front. Phillips’ ceiling may be the highest of the top three.
24. EDGE Jayson Oweh, Penn St. (6-5, 257, Redshirt Sophomore)
Oweh not only has great size to play either outside linebacker or defensive end, a lot of his 257 pounds have been added in the weight room since he arrived in Happy Valley. His technique is either poor or missing in a number of areas, but his traits are off the charts.
25. RB Najee Harris, Alabama (6-1, 232, Senior)
Harris is a big back that had to wait his turn at Alabama but took ownership of the position the last two seasons to become a well-rounded Day 1 prospect. He runs with power, has some wiggle when he needs it, has become a quality receiver and is much more solid in pass pro than most coming out of college. Only downside is he isn’t slow, but will probably never be a home run hitter either.
26. OT Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma St. (6-6, 317, Redshirt Senior)
Jenkins is the big stud, mauling right tackle of your dreams. A starter his last three years in school, he lined up 25 times at right tackle and seven times at left tackle. Arm length is an issue here, too, leading some to suggest he will be a guard as a pro, but I just don’t see arms being an inch to an inch-and-a-half shorter than ideal keeping him from being a dominant right tackle. This kid reminds me of a Lane Johnson or Mitchell Schwartz.
27. LB Zaven Collins, Tulsa (6-5, 260, Redshirt Junior)
Think Anthony Barr as the comp for body type and athleticism. Collins may actually be a hair quicker if not faster. He didn’t show enough pass rush at Tulsa to be comfortable projecting him as an edge rusher although he has all the traits you look for, but he’s NFL ready for the SAM linebacker spot in any 4-3 scheme.
28. WR Rashod Bateman, Minnesota (6-0, 190, Junior)
One of the most dominant players in the Big Ten in 2019, he played only five games last year after opting out initially, opting back in and then opting out again. But when things were “normal,” Bateman was dominant and flashed NFL No. 1 receiver traits. He isn’t a burner, but he has plenty of quickness and get off, and will catch just about everything thrown near him.
29. WR Elijah Moore, Mississippi (5-9 ½, 178, Junior)
Another kid with some special traits but is particularly small in a class full of little guys. It’s hard to argue his production though, and he actually is fairly stout for his size and stronger than you’d expect. He is probably limited to a No. 2 receiver role at the next level, but those are the guys that can win you games when other options are taken away. Moore looked like that guy at “Ole Miss.”
30. CB Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech (6-2, 197, Redshirt Junior)
Farley would be right there with Surtain and Horn but a history of injuries and recent back surgery make him difficult to project. He’s a special athlete with great speed, but he needs coaching and technique to make up for time lost to injury and opting out in 2020. He has a chance to be special but where he is drafted will depend on how comfortable teams can get with his back.
31. C/OG Landon Dickerson, Alabama (6–6, 333, Redshirt Senior)
After starting at Florida State and then transferring to Alabama, Dickerson has flashed enough intangibles to suggest he could be the best center, guard or even tackle in this draft. The problem has been keeping him healthy and on the field long enough to determine his best position. He suffered a knee injury in the most recent SEC championship game that required surgery. If he’s healthy he can be special, but with so much unknown, which team is going to take the risk and how high in the draft?
32. WR Terrace Marshall, Jr., LSU (6-2 ½, 205, Junior)
Better size than most of this year’s wideouts with plenty of speed and athleticism, but focus and mindset might need some work. Like Alabama, LSU has become a program where eventual NFL receivers wait their turn in the starring role, and for all his tools, and certainly nice production, Marshall Jr. didn’t take over the field the way Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson.
33. S Jamar Johnson, Indiana (6–0, 205, Junior)
What sticks out most about Johnson are his coverage skills and instincts. He is a willing tackler but not a thumper and will need to add technique as a tackler, but he appears to have a natural feel for the game. He can lead a secondary, make all the necessary coverage calls, and although he may never be an All-Pro, I’ll bet he starts in the league for the next decade or so. Looks to be a very safe pick.
34. QB Mac Jones, Alabama (6-3, 220, Redshirt Junior)
Another one-year wonder with only 17 starts at Alabama and serious questions as to how much was him and how much was the ton of talent around him. There is a lot to like about his game but far more we don’t yet know about it.
35. RB Javonte Williams, North Carolina (5-10, 212, Junior)
We’ve actually had two scouts we really respect tell us they have Williams as the top back in this draft. As much as I hate to do this to the kid, watching him on tape stylistically he reminds me a little of Walter Payton. Sharing the backfield with Michael Carter has left a lot of tread on his tires, but his violent running style will concern some GMs. He can catch but still needs work as a receiver out of the backfield.
36. LB Baron Browning, Ohio St. (6-3, 245, Redshirt Senior)
Browning played both in the middle and at the strong side linebacker spots at Ohio State and now will have to answer the age old question at the next level: is he an athlete or a football player. His traits leave scouts drooling, but his production in Columbus never quite caught up with them.
37. LB Nick Bolton, Missouri (5-11, 237, Junior)
Bolton looks and plays like the Steelers’ Devin Bush, but he doesn’t have Bush’s speed. What he does have is outstanding instincts and football IQ, and he appears to love playing the game and relish every hit. His physicality will carry him early as he works to catch up to the increased speed of the pro game.
38. EDGE Joe Tryon, Washington (6-5, 260, Redshirt Junior)
If you were building the perfect edge rusher in a lab you might end up with Tryon. But as great as his size, strength and athleticism are, his technique is lacking and temperament uncertain. Will need a little time, but he has the tools.
39. CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse (6-2 ½, 205, Redshirt Junior)
Another big corner with excellent traits and he adds exceptional toughness. He is a big hitter some teams will think about at safety, but his coverage skills and size could make him special on the corner. He’s tough to create mismatches with and has enough speed to play man with smaller quick receivers too.
40. CB Eric Stokes, Georgia (6-1, 194, Junior)
Stokes isn’t just fast; he’s quick as a hiccup and could fit either on the boundary or in the slot. Not sure if he’s physical enough to handle NFL studs in press and bump-and-run coverages, but he is minimally an exciting slot prospect that could become a 60-minute guy with coaching and patience.
41. DT Levi Onwuzurike, Washington (6-3, 290, Redshirt Senior)
He’s an excellent football player and could sneak into the back of the first round, but he’ll need to add at least 15 pounds or more in the weight room to hold his own at the next level. Onwuzurike opted out of the 2020 season but showed tremendous initial explosion and upper body power when on the field. A high Day 2 developmental project with a very high ceiling.
42. C Creed Humphrey, Oklahoma (6-4, 302, Redshirt Junior)
Almost any center can play guard if he has to, but Humphrey is a pure center. It’s what he’ll be drafted to play, and he should be a good one. Like so many of the great ones to come before him, he has a solid wrestling background, is a true tough guy and has the football savvy to make all the calls and lead an O-line. He does have shorter arms for his size, a concern with all interior offensive line prospects.
43. WR Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma St. (5-11, 194, Senior)
Productive, confident, tough and courageous in college, he’s a competitor that should start for someone. Wallace’s twin brother, Tracin, was also an Oklahoma State recruit, but multiple ACL issues caused him to give up the game. Tylan is tough, competitive, already a fairly accomplished technician and his vertical tools allow him to win most contested balls.
44. EDGE Greg Rousseau, Miami (Fla.) (6-7, 266, Redshirt Sophomore)
A fascinating prospect, Rousseau has snow shoes for hands and the wingspan of an albatross, but after breaking his ankle after only two games as a freshman and opting out last season, he’s only played one season of college ball. He was, however, dominant in 2019, and has several teams drooling over his unlimited ceiling.
45. LB Jamin Davis, Kentucky (6-3 ½, 234, Redshirt Junior)
Davis is one of those bigger guys we’re not seeing as much inside these days. He didn’t become a full-time starter until this past season, but he appears to be a playmaker with excellent instincts for the game and the position. We just need to see a bigger body of work and there may be something special here.
46. S Jevon Holland, Oregon (6-1, 207, Junior)
Holland is a true ball hawk who isn’t afraid to get in the box and stick his nose in either, and he has punt-return skills to boot. He opted out in 2020 and probably is a hair slower than you’d like, so don’t think about trying him at cornerback, but he has plenty of speed to run with tight ends, running backs and most receivers. He played wideout in high school and will win as many contested balls as he loses.
47. S Trevon Moehrig, Texas Christian (6-1, 202, Junior)
Excellent size, strength and speed numbers make Moehrig an intriguing prospect and could make him the first safety off the board this year, but I’m not quite as high on him as others because he appeared to take a slight step back last season after an excellent sophomore campaign. He played corner in high school and was an excellent special teams contributor at TCU. He will be a good one if he can focus and go full speed all the time, but he may take a little while.
48. CB Tyson Campbell, Georgia (6-1, 193, Junior)
Physically he’s a clone of his teammate, Eric Stokes, but he’ll have to play outside until he gains confidence and technique to play inside.
49. OT Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame (6-6, 306, Redshirt Senior)
Eichenberg grew up at South Bend watching Ronnie Stanley, Quenton Nelson, Alex Bars and Sam Mustipher and started the last three years at left tackle, but he’ll be looked at on the right side as well at the next level because of questions about his pass protection for now. He’s a solid run blocker though, and with another 10 or 15 pounds in the weight room, which his frame can easily handle, he should start somewhere in the NFL for a number of years.
50. OG Wyatt Davis, Ohio St. (6-4, 310, Redshirt Junior)
Davis is a road grader in the run game. It will get him drafted high and give him a chance to play early in the NFL in spite of some technique work needed in pass protection. He might even add another five to 10 pounds in the weight room and has a very high ceiling at the next level.
51. S Divine Deablo, Virginia Tech (6-3, 226, Redshirt Senior)
I love this kid, and he is my favorite safety in this draft for more than just a great shot at the all-name team. He’s a true in-the-box type, arriving at a time when the league doesn’t value that position as it did a couple of years ago. He will stuff the run and may not be ideal for man-to-man coverage, but he can cover, especially bigger bodies, and he has a nose for the ball.
52. OG/OT Jalen Mayfield, Michigan (6-5, 326, Redshirt Sophomore)
Could be one of the toughest call this year whether he’s a tackle or a guard, and if he’s the real deal or just a guy. He was a right tackle in 18 games at Michigan, but that’s all he played before opting to leave early. The guard projection is mainly because of his short arms. He would have really benefited from another year in Ann Arbor and will be a developmental project wherever he lands.
53. EDGE, Payton Turner, Houston (6-5, 270, Senior)
A long limbed 4-3 right end, Turner is still growing into his body and learning the nuances of the game. He’s a great traits guy who still needs to be developed. Position flexibility will be a plus for him as he has the body to play right end in a 40 front, add the bulk to play the five technique in a 30 front, or take a shot at outside rush linebacker, although he’s not a unique athlete.
54. TE Pat Freiermuth, Penn St. (6-5, 251, Junior)
This is the best Y prospect in this draft. Freiermuth is probably a better blocker than receiver right now, but he has the athletic ability and hands to become a solid receiver. His leadership and character will be coveted. He excelled in the YAC category at Happy Valley, and while very much like most young tight ends he’s going to need some time, solid coaching and improved techniques, but his ceiling is high.
55. TE Tommy Tremble, Notre Dame (6-3, 241, Junior)
Tremble is tough to project after backing up Cole Kmet and Michael Mayer the last two seasons, but he is a player teams have their eyes on. He is a bit undersized and interestingly to date has impressed more with his blocking than pass catching, but some of that is due to Kmet and Mayer demanding targets. On tape he is always crashing into someone, appears to relish blocking assignments and contact and has shown some traits to suggest there is a quality receiver there as well.
56. C Quinn Meinerz, Wisconsin Whitewater (6-3, 320, Redshirt Junior)
It used to be a red flag but a number of small school offensive linemen have made the leap to the NFL in recent years and Meinerz is one of the better prospects we’ve seen, although he didn’t play last year as Whitewater program was shut down by the pandemic. His standout performances at the Senior Bowl pretty much sealed his Day 2 draft status. If he performs in the NFL like he did in Mobile, he could make a real impact as a pro.
57. OG/OT Trey Smith, Tennessee (6-5 ½, 321, Senior)
Smith played left tackle as a freshman and sophomore, but serious health issues shortened his sophomore season. He switched inside to guard as a junior and senior, starting 23 of 24 games. He is a high character young man and will be a blessing in any locker room. His position versatility will be valued, but he’s not a special athlete and will need improved techniques and time to learn.
58. WR Rondale Moore, Purdue (5-7, 181, Junior)
This little guy had a huge freshman campaign in 2018 but missed most of 2019 with a hamstring issue and 2020 after opting out before opting back in. Wish there was more tape. Moore is a favorite among draftnicks and Big Ten locals because of that huge freshman year and the big-play ability he flashed.
59. DE Carlos “Boogie” Basham Jr, Wake Forest (6-3, 274, Redshirt Senior)
They call him “Boogie” because he loves to dance. He’s a 4-3 right end who may slide inside in obvious pass-rush situations. He’s more likely to be a complete edge defender than a dominant edge rusher at the next level. Boogie is a football player, but he might not have a true position in today’s NFL schemes.
60. OLT/OG Alex Leatherwood, Alabama (6-5, 312, Senior)
Had a monster pro day but needs work on fundamentals and aggression for left tackle. He does have position flexibility though having played guard and tackle. He could probably line up anywhere but center as a rookie and start for some teams. It’s not unusual for some of these four- and five-star recruit ‘Bama kids to come out still projectable studs but lacking some technique after relying on pure talent in college. If he’s there in the second half of the second round, teams should jump all over him.
61. OT Stone Forsythe, Florida (6-8, 307, Redshirt Senior)
Solid pass protector who’ll need work in the run game but can play left or right tackle. He’s going to need some work in the weight room to excel at either on Sundays. The good news is his long lanky frame begs for some more muscle and that could be all that’s missing from a high-end left tackle prospect.
62. QB Kyle Trask, Florida (6-5, 236, Redshirt Senior)
Arm talent, size and strength will get him drafted in the second round, but everything else you look for in franchise QB prospect is missing or a question mark. He can throw the ball at any level and will have some days where he lights up the sky for 300 or 400 yards, but does he have the innate feel for the game that separates NFL QBs from all the guys with great arms but foggy eyes?
63. OT Spencer Brown, Northern Iowa (6-8, 311, Redshirt Senior)
Brown’s a college right tackle with athletic ability to play left tackle, exciting clay for an O-line coach to mold. Obviously there’s a big difference between Northern Iowa and the NFL, but Brown, while not a standout in Mobile, showed at the Senior Bowl he can fit in. He may need a year or even two in an NFL weight room and learning technique but should be worth the wait.
64. WR Cade Johnson, South Dakota St. (5-11, 184, Redshirt Senior)
He’s an exciting FCS prospect with excellent traits, but can he make the huge step up in competition? The good news is wideout is a position where an athlete is an athlete, and Johnson has the skills to make a difference in the NFL.
65. DT Tyler Shelvin, LSU (6-2, 350, Redshirt Junior)
Another 2020 opt out, he is absolutely massive and controlling his weight can be a problem, but he is a hard worker, plays with tremendous power and could develop into a two-gap stud. Even if weight and conditioning remain an issue, he could make a living at the next level just playing in goal-line and short-yardage situations.
66. WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC (5-11 ½, 197, Junior)
This is an all-effort kid, certainly a nice athlete that played both outside and in the slot at USC. He’s a solid technician but won’t take the top off any defenses and may need to get a little stronger and tougher because he’ll most likely make his living in the slot in the NFL.
67. CB Kelvin Joseph, Kentucky (5-11 ½, 197, Redshirt Sophomore)
Special traits but only nine games as a starting corner in college, Joseph has a ton to work with and a lot left to prove. He played in 11 games as a true freshman at LSU but was suspended at the end of the season for violating team rules and transferred to Kentucky, forcing him to sit out the 2019 season. He looked the part in his one season at Kentucky and is an exciting prospect, but you really wish he had stayed in school another year.
68. OLT/OG Dillon Radunz, North Dakota St. (6-4, 305, Redshirt Senior)
Tough and talented but small for tackle at the next level, Radunz may have to play inside in the NFL. He appears to have the strength and grit to compete at the next level, but there’s nothing that sticks out about him as an athlete that screams you have to have this guy. He appears to have a real shot at guard, but there has to be a reason he was playing FCS football.
69. LB Joseph Ossai, Texas, (6-4, 256, Junior)
Played as much inside linebacker as edge at Texas but looks like a better fit outside. His character and passion for the game will excite teams with a year or two to be patient developing him.
70. EDGE Dayo Odeyingbo, Vanderbilt (6-5, 285, Senior)
Another 4-3 right end prospect, but Odeyingbo may even be able to handle the five-technique in 30 fronts. He might have been Day 2 pick but a torn Achilles in January just before the Senior Bowl will severely damage his draft stock.
71. CB Elijah Molden, Washington (5-9 ½, 192, Senior)
Another protégé – dad Alex was an NFL defensive back – Molden is more a sky-high character gym rat than special athlete, and the first “little guy” on our board. He is the kind of player every team wants in its locker room and on the field. He can play any cornerback spot and maybe even safety. The problem is his average athleticism will get him beat on occasion by high-end receivers.
72. WR Nico Collins, Michigan (6-4, 215, Senior)
Collins looked like the next big thing when he arrived in Ann Arbor, but the light never really went on in spite of his averaging 16.5 yards a catch as a sophomore and well over 19 as a junior. While he rarely took over games and never had a “big year” at Michigan – 38 catches that sophomore year was his peak – Collins has what the rest of the top 10 in this crop is missing, that special size most of the top NFL wideouts have these days.
73. OG Deonte Brown, Alabama (6-3, 344, Redshirt Senior)
Another ‘Bama stud, Brown is fascinating because he’s a guard in a nose tackle’s body, and at times he plays like one. You don’t want to get in a one-on-one brawl with him, but speed and athleticism can be his kryptonite. Some teams will want to know more about a suspension from the NCAA that cost him six games across the 2018 and ’19 seasons.
74. LB Jabril Cox, LSU (6-3, 232, Redshirt Senior)
Cox is fascinating because he started college career at that new football factory, North Dakota State, dominated for two seasons and then transferred to LSU, where he appeared to fit right in. Tough, explosive and appears willing and able to do what it takes at any level.
75. S Richie Grant, UCF, (6-0, 197, Redshirt Senior)
Another ballhawk with great ball skills but most of his measurables are just above average or slightly better. You can’t count him out of a full-time job, but he’ll need to focus on his run-stuffing ability and a commitment to special teams work will be a plus for him.
76. QB Davis Mills, Stanford (6-4, 215, Redshirt Junior)
Talk about inexperience, Mills had just 11 starts at Stanford. He’s not a special athlete, but in limited available tape he appears to check all the other boxes. He’s worth a look in round three.
77. CB Asante Samuel Jr., Florida St. (5-10, 180, Junior)
You know him because his dad of the same name is a four-time Pro Bowler with two rings. He’s the same size as dad but not quite the athlete. He does have excellent functional football strength and power for the position and won’t get bodied or bullied by bigger receivers, but he does need some technique work.
78. EDGE Chris Rumph, Duke (6-3, 244, Redshirt Junior)
Dad is the Bears new defensive line coach, but he’ll have to play outside linebacker at the next level due to his lack of size. Showed some real pass rush skills at Duke and will be an interesting boom-or-bust pick higher than you might expect.
79. C Josh Myers, Ohio St. (6-5, 310, Redshirt Junior)
Myers switched from guard to center in 2019 and has started all 21 Buckeyes’ games since. He has pretty much everything you look for in a starting center including the mass and strength to handle two-gapping nose tackles and anchor tackles lining up on his head or shoulders.
80. OG Aaron Banks, Notre Dame (6-5, 325, Senior)
The heir to All Pro Quenton Nelson’s spot on the Irish front, he’s started the last 25 games for Notre Dame. We rank him a bit lower than most because he’ll look great in a power run game but pass protection may be a concern.
81. CB Aaron Robinson, UCF (5-11 ½, 186, Redshirt Senior)
Robinson actually played every game as a true freshman at Alabama before transferring to UCF and shouldn’t be intimidated by the step up to the next level now. He has some special athletic traits but will never be the fastest guy on the field. He’s a solid prospect with NFL starter potential.
82. RB Michael Carter, North Carolina (5-8, 201, Senior)
Carter is short but not small, a solid technician and has just average speed, but as he proved with Williams at Chapel Hill, he can be a perfect complimentary back in a tandem backfield. Carter is surprisingly stout for his size in pass protection, has nice soft hands as a pass catcher and can be really tough for tacklers to find in a crowd. Stereotype of No. 2 back may leave him on board until Day 3, but he’ll play on Sundays.
83. WR Josh Palmer, Tennessee (6-1, 210, Senior)
Palmer has an awful lot of what NFL scouts look for – nice size, solid athleticism, good if not great speed – and he’s a high character kid that grew up in Canada, but he just wasn’t that productive at Tennessee. That could leave him on the board until early on Day 3, but there’s too much here to work with for him not to get a chance.
84. RB Kenneth Gainwell, Memphis (5-8, 201, Redshirt Sophomore)
Identical in size to Carter you’d expect speed to be their greatest asset, but like Carter, Gainwell’s is average. After opting out last year he has just one full season of tape from Memphis but it was a huge year – 1,459 yards on the ground and 51 catches with16 total TDs – and surprisingly a lot of it was piled up by seeking contact. Minimally he has great value as a third-down back. With more reps we may find he has even more than that to offer.
85. TE Hunter Long, Boston College (6-5, 254, Junior)
Long has the body of a Y but the temperament and skills of a U, and he needs to show teams how bad he wants it. He’s impressed catching the ball at BC, but his blocking has a long way to go, and it’s not clear that he loves the contact.
86. OLT/OG Sam Cosmi, Texas (6-6, 314, Redshirt Junior)
Physically he’s what you want in a true left tackle prospect, but he doesn’t play with the power and strength you’d expect from a man his size. If he can add 10 pounds of muscle in the weight room you could have something special.
87. WR Tamorrion Terry, Florida St. (6-3, 207, Redshirt Junior)
Like Michigan’s Nico Collins, Terry is one of the few kids in this wide receiver group with the kind of size we’ve gotten used to in today’s NFL, but he didn’t always take advantage of it as a Seminole. Terry actually has better speed than Collins and is big-play threat that will take the top off defenses, but he disappeared at times in college.
88. OT Walker Little, Stanford (6-7, 313, Senior)
Left tackle body but has played one game last two seasons, bum knee needs checking. This is one of the biggest issues with this year’s draf: how many teams can feel comfortable with his physical with diminished access. If the knee is sound, Little becomes very interesting. Will be a high Day 3 pick if he lasts that long because of tremendous upside.
89. RB Trey Sermon, Ohio St. (6-0, 215, Senior)
After two big seasons at Oklahoma injuries handicapped his junior year and he transferred to Ohio St. for a very nice but not special 2020 until he exploded in the Big Ten title game and national semifinal. Whether that was enough to get him off the board by the end of day Day 2 remains to be seen as he absolutely looks the part but hasn’t always produced up to it.
90. WR Cornell Powell, Clemson (6-0, 204, Redshirt Senior)
Powell is tough to figure because after his 2020 season he certainly looked like an NFL pass catcher, but why did it take four years at Clemson for him to become a starter and put up decent numbers? He looks like he was born on a Nautilus machine, and if the 2020 season is an indication to who he is, he’ll have an NFL future, but if he thought the competition was tough at Clemson...
91. RB Rhamondre Stevenson, Oklahoma (6-0, 231, Senior)
After going the junior college route, Oklahoma brought him along slowly in 2019. He was highly productive until a failed drug test cost him the national semifinal playoff game against LSU and the first five games in 2020. He’d much rather run over you than around you and will struggle if you get him going east and west, but he’s a mauler between the tackles and could have a Marshawn Lynch-type career if he keeps his head on straight.
92. DT Bobby Brown, Texas A&M (6-4, 321, Junior)
Brown has the size and athleticism to play either tackle spot in 30 or 40 fronts although he would be limited as a three technique. And technique is where he’ll need the most work, but you can’t coach 6-4, 320. He can be a two-gapper, but as yet hasn’t been overly impressive pushing the pocket.
93. LB Cameron McGrone, Michigan (6-1, 234, Redshirt Sophomore)
McGrone is a classic example of a kid who should have spent another year in school. He has excellent athleticism and somewhat typical size for today’s inside guys. Will make splash plays and look special, but at other times looks lost. If you have patience and time, he might make you look like a genius, or the light may not go on in time.
94. CB Robert Rochell, Central Arkansas (6-0, 193, Redshirt Senior)
If this young man was coming from a top program he might be a first-round prospect because of his special athletic ability, but the combination of the competition he’s faced and several technique issues will make him wait for a phone call. The call will come eventually though because guys with his traits and ball skills are hard to find. This is the classic athlete over football player – so far – that drive GMs nuts.
95. WR Amari Rodgers, Clemson (5-9 ½, 212, Senior)
Interesting slot receiver prospect in a running backs body with special speed. Bad news is he’s already had his first ACL tear, good news is he was back on the field in six months and hasn’t appeared hampered by it. He may be limited in the routes he can be effective on and where he lines up, but he’s a big play waiting to happen.
96. DT Milton Williams, Louisiana Tech (6-3, 284, Redshirt Junior)
A tough guy who plays with excellent strength and power, but his lack of bulk and mass make him hard to project for Sundays. He’ll battle you all day long, but without adding some bulk he will get swallowed up by top NFL O-linemen.
97. LB Pete Werner, Ohio St. (6-3, 238, Senior)
As you might expect Werner’s the opposite of the Wolverine just above him here. A SAM or WILL with an adequate frame, but more a big guy than NFL body. He’s a three-year starter with the Buckeyes, and what you’ve already seen is probably exactly what you’ll get.
98. TE Brevin Jordan, Miami (Fla.) (6-3, 247, Junior)
The latest entry from “Tight End U.” You wish Jordan was an inch or two taller, but he does project as a Y with plus potential as a receiver. He doesn’t lack confidence, but he does need to win more contested catches and improve technique both blocking and catching.
99. OG/OT Jackson Carman, Clemson (6-5, 317, Junior)
Carman was a left tackle all three of his seasons at Clemson, including starting their last 27 games. He’s projected at guard here again because of very short arms for his size, and because his pass pro has never quite matched his run blocking.
100. CB Shakur Brown, Michigan St. (5-10, 185, Redshirt Junior)
Above all Brown is a competitor who appears to love the game and plays to win for 60 minutes, but his traits – size, speed, athleticism – are above average at best. He does seem to have nice strength for his size and he loves getting physical, but the difference in speed and ability at the next level could be an issue when he tries to bump and then can’t keep up on the run. He’ll play in the league, but how much is the question.
101. DT Alim McNeill, North Carolina St. (6-2, 317, Junior)
McNeill is actually a good athlete for a big man, but he lacks any truly special traits and occasionally struggles to keep blockers off him. He looks like he could become a very good third or fourth tackle in a rotation for a 4-3 base scheme.
102. LB Dylan Moses, Alabama (6-1, 225, Senior)
The latest off the Crimson Tide’s assembly line for the position at the next level, Moses looks the part and was productive at ‘Bama, but there are no special traits, and he’s not stout enough to be a run-stuffer in the middle. Looks like a solid backup but may struggle to own the position.
103. WR Tutu Atwell, Louisville (5-9, 155, Junior)
It’s hard to imagine a kid this small playing in the NFL, but he was highly productive at Louisville. He’s going to get a shot as a “special weapon” somewhere, but how he’s used will be the key to whether or not he sticks and makes a difference. Showed electrifying punt return ability in college but for whatever reason wasn’t used that often there.
104. WR Jacob Harris, UCF (6-5, 219, Redshirt Senior)
You can’t coach size and this kid is a giant as wideouts go, and he pairs that with excellent speed to leave some scouts drooling. He hasn’t played a ton of football though, and he’s not a complete receiver. Harris will be the prototypical developmental pick that gets a GM a new contract or fired.
105. OT/OG Jaylon Moore, Western Michigan (6-4, 311, Redshirt Senior)
Not sure where he’ll play at the next level, but Moore’s got great quickness, good feet and has played a lot of football as a three-year starter. In spite of a nice NFL body, he may need a year in the weight room with NFL trainers, but his athleticism and position flexibility will be attractive.
106. TE Tony Poljan, Virginia (6-7, 251, Senior)
Poljan is a converted quarterback with a unique frame that reminds you of Jimmy Graham. But unlike Graham, Poljan is a work in progress as a receiver and may have limited upside. He does project as a plus inline blocker who could be a threat in the red zone as well.
107. DT Jaylen Twyman, Pittsburgh (6-2, 301, Redshirt Junior)
Smaller than you’d like inside and he impressed more at Pitt collapsing the pocket than stuffing the run. Twyman plays with strength and power, but he needs to add at least 10-to-12 pounds in the weight room to envision him making an impact in the NFL.
108. EDGE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma (6-2 ½, 253, Junior)
He doesn’t have special traits and played with a hand on the ground in Norman, which won’t be an option in the NFL, but his production at Oklahoma was very impressive. If he can make the transition to a stand up outside rush ‘backer in a 3-4 scheme, he does have a chance to be a professional pass rusher.
109. RB Jermar Jefferson, Oregon St. (5-10, 206, Junior)
As more teams go the outside zone read route with their run games Jefferson’s stock goes up. He is more physical than elusive and doesn’t have great acceleration but try stopping him on first contact. One concern is he may not be a natural receiver.
110. DT Daviyon Nixon, Iowa (6-3, 313, Redshirt Junior)
Nixon looks like a kid who can rely on his base with a great anchor and lower body power, but he needs some time in the weight room to get stronger on top. As a penetrator and disruptor – ideally a three technique at the next level – he has some traits you really like, but he needs to become a more consistent finisher.
111. DT Jay Tufele, USC (6-2, 305, Redshirt Junior)
Another slightly undersized 4-3 three technique, this kid’s motor is non-stop. He may not be as instinctive as you’d like. What you will love though is his personality and character, and he projects as one of those guys who keeps making plays even if you’re not sure how. No, he’s not Aaron Donald, but that is his style.
112. ORT/OG Larry Borom, Missouri (6-5, 322, Redshirt Junior)
Not special on tape but love his body type and nastiness at right tackle. Borom is one of those kids who is hard to project because he rarely did anything special at Mizzou, but he has the size and power to play anywhere but left tackle – he’s just not the athlete for that – and in the right group he could emerge as an important piece.
113. EDGE Charles Snowden, Virginia (6-6, 243, Senior)
He’s a leader and an athlete, but he may have to add 15 or 20 pounds and put a hand on the ground to compete at the next level. Snowden is one of those guys you can picture bending the edge on a regular basis, but he won’t get there physically without adding bulk, power and improving his technique. He has the frame and athleticism to do it though.
114. LB Chazz Surratt, North Carolina (6-2, 229, Redshirt Senior)
Surratt was a quarterback his first two seasons at North Carolina and then switched to linebacker in 2019 and was the runner-up for ACC Defensive Player of the Year. There’s definitely something here, but he still has a lot to learn.
115. S Tyree Gillespie, Missouri (6-0, 207, Senior)
This kid is a very good football player, will probably be an excellent special teams addition and still has room to grow, but it’s hard to ignore a full college career without an interception.
116. QB Kellen Mond, Texas A&M (6-2, 211, Senior)
Mond is a four-year starter and a dual-threat athletically, but there is little or no wow in his game. Feels like a third- or fourth-round developmental prospect likely to have a career as a solid No. 2 if he lands in the right scheme that will value all his tools.
117. RB Chuba Hubbard, Oklahoma St. (6-0, 210, Redshirt Junior)
Hubbard is another of the growing group of Canadians making their way to big-time college programs and showing they belong. He is used to being a feature back with 27 touches a game in 2019 and 20 last season and averaging 5.9 yards a carry and 9.0 per reception. He won’t find a lot on his own but will always take what’s there.
118. LB Ernest Jones, South Carolina (6-1 ½, 230, Junior)
This kid’s not a special athlete or physical specimen but he is a football player. Tough and physical, for an NFL comp and ceiling think Nick Kwiatkoski, but that’s if everything goes right.
119. EDGE Adetokunbo Ogundeji, Notre Dame (6-4 ½, 260, Redshirt Senior)
Ogundeji was a slow developer in South Bend, adding weight and muscle every year. He has a great NFL body now but no special traits. The problem is with how hard he’s worked in a big-time program to get to where he is now, how much room to grow is left because he’s not there yet?
120. TE Kenny Yeboah, Mississippi (6-4, 250, Redshirt Senior)
Yeboah was a big-play guy his first two seasons at Temple and after transferring to Mississippi. His future is probably as a U or move tight end as he’s shown minimal success blocking and may not have much of an appetite for it.
121. DT Marvin Wilson, Florida St. (6-4, 303, Senior)
He was better as a junior than a senior, but if he adds 10-to-15 pounds of good weight and becomes more of a pass rusher than just a pocket collapser, he could be a late-round steal.
122. OG Ben Cleveland, Georgia (6-6, 343, Redshirt Senior)
A mountain of a man, Cleveland was a right guard all four years at Georgia, but not the full-time starter until last season. He does have some technique and nice traits to go with his great size, but you wouldn’t call him an athlete, and he will have to explain being academically ineligible for the Sugar Bowl as a junior.
123. OG Kendrick Green, Illinois (6-2, 305, Redshirt Junior)
Green has starting experience at both guard and center over the past three seasons. While he lacks great natural size, his outstanding quickness should make him attractive for outside zone-read run games.
124. EDGE Patrick Jones, Pittsburgh (6-4, 261, Redshirt Senior)
Great character and frame, but Jones didn’t produce enough at Pitt to project as any more than a rotation guy right now.
125. LB Isaiah McDuffie, Boston College (6-1, 227, Redshirt Junior)
McDuffie’s a cross between a worker bee and the Energizer Bunny. He appears to love the game and will play all day, but he has no unique traits or special athleticism. Could have a long career as trusted backup and special teamer.
126. S Andre Cisco, Syracuse (6-1, 216, Junior)
Cisco has ideal size, strength and athleticism for the position and loves putting a hat on people. But his techniques are shaky, and he will need time if he is going to reach his very high ceiling.
127. CB Paulson Adebo, Stanford (6-1, 198, Redshirt Junior)
Adebo is another tough scout because he opted out last season and didn’t improve from 2018 to 2019 the way you would have liked. But he’s a big corner with excellent ball skills who sometimes looks as much like a receiver as a cover guy. His Stanford pedigree suggests he should be coachable, and his very high ceiling makes him an exciting prospect even though he may last until Day 3.
128. RB Khalil Herbert, Virginia Tech (5-9, 210, Redshirt Senior)
Spent his first three seasons at Kansas but struggled in 2019 and transferred to Virginia Tech last season and became a star – 7.7 yards per carry and 162.8 all purpose yards per game, including quality work returning kickoffs. May not start at the next level but could add value.
129. CB Kary Vincent Jr., LSU (5-10, 185, Senior)
This kid is probably limited to the slot, but he may go sooner than we expect because of his exceptional speed and athletic ability. He was a 2020 opt out but played very well in LSU’s national title run the year before. How much he can bring to special teams will be an important resume piece as well.
130. WR Demetric Felton, UCLA (5-9, 189, Redshirt Senior)
Felton was hybrid wide receiver/running back at UCLA and also has some kick return experience, but he’s just not big enough to project at running back in the NFL. At the Senior Bowl he looked like a kid who could have a future as a slot receiver at the next level. Athletically he’s the complete package. He’ll remind you a lot of the Bears’ Tarik Cohen.
131. OG David Moore, Grambling St. (6-2, 330, Senior)
This kid is intriguing due to his great temperament off the field but easy to see nasty streak on it and outstanding functional football power and strength. He also has nice long arms for his frame. He’s a Day 3 pick that could start for a long time in the league.
132. CB Benjamin St-Juste, Minnesota (6-0, 202, Redshirt Junior)
Another on the rapidly growing list of Canadians playing big-time college football, St-Juste first went to Michigan, playing in 12 games as a true freshman but then came some confusion as to whether injuries would allow him to continue to play or if he transferred to Minnesota for other reasons? Regardless, he played well if not spectacular for the Gophers, and he is a big corner with toughness and instincts but limited reps.
133. WR Austin Watkins, Jr, UAB (6-1 ½, 207, Redshirt Senior)
This is Sammy Watkins’ cousin, and he actually has a similar game, although didn’t excel in college as Sammy did. He has very good if not great size but excellent strength and power to go with it, and he should be able to line up on either side or in the slot in the NFL. He’ll win most contested balls, but he may not be a consistent big-play guy or home-run hitter.
134. LB Monty Rice, Georgia (6-0, 233, Senior)
Smallish even for today’s inside guys, Rice has a nose for the ball and appears to have a high football I.Q. He doesn’t have the athleticism to make up for mistakes when they happen.
135. TE Tre’ McKitty, Georgia (6-4, 246, Senior)
He played two seasons at Florida State before transferring to Georgia. McKitty is intriguing, but a real developmental guy who looks the part but still has a ton to learn.
136. QB Jamie Newman, Wake Forest (6-3, 230, Redshirt Senior)
Interesting Day 3 prospect who could surprise but needs time and a ton of work. He has an NFL body and arm but no special trait to grab on to now. NFL backup is most likely his ceiling, but he’s shown enough to be worth the effort to find out if he has more.
137. DT Marlon Tuipulotu, USC (6-2, 307, Redshirt Junior)
Like so many of this year’s group he’s a little smaller than you’d like but he’s a three-year starter for the Trojans who could make a living as some team’s third or fourth tackle in a 40 front.
138. RB Chris Evans, Michigan (5-11, 211, Senior)
Evans has an NFL body and traits, but his stay in Ann Arbor was often a slog through the swamp with academic issues costing him the 2019 season and he never really claimed the running back position. He’ll get a look based on his freshman production and some exciting traits, but he’s a project.
139. CB Israel Mukuamu, South Carolina (6-4, 212, Junior)
This kid is a unique prospect because of his size and enormous wingspan, and some teams will see him at safety or perhaps even linebacker. He’s not afraid to play the run and has some impressive ball skills, but his long legs can make it tricky at times for him to turn with smaller, quicker receivers in short areas. With the right coach and improved technique, he could be special in a Richard Sherman body.
140. CB Ambry Thomas, Michigan (6-0, 191, Senior)
Thomas played early, often and well at Michigan but opted out last season after surprising some folks with his decision to return for his senior year. He definitely has NFL tools and is a former high school receiver who even lined up on offense a few times for the Wolverines. He loves playing press and man coverage and should have a future on Sundays at least as a third corner if not a starter somewhere.
141. LB Derrick Barnes, Purdue (6-0, 238, Senior)
He’s played inside and actually lined up outside with a hand on the ground. Barnes was highly productive at Purdue, but he’s always going to be a quarter to a half step behind the elite athletes on the field.
142. OG Jack Anderson, Texas Tech (6-5, 314, Redshirt Junior)
He had 38 starts at right guard and the only serious black mark on his checklist is he doesn’t appear as strong as you’d expect for a man his size, occasionally getting manhandled by bulkier power defenders.
143. RB Kylin Hill, Mississippi St. (5-10 ½, 214, Senior)
Will find a home in the NFL because of his determination, power and desir. This kid appears to really love the game, but there’s no single special trait that allows you to project him as a future starter.
144. S Hamsah Nasirildeen, Florida St. (6-3, 215, Senior)
High character, excellent athlete, but Nasirildeen’s development has been slowed by a 2019 ACL tear from which he was still quite limited last season. A great gamble if he’s still there in round five.
145. RB Javian Hawkins, Louisville (5-8, 183, Redshirt Sophomore)
Think Tarik Cohen without the return game. Hawkins can be a home-run hitter if you get him in space, but will have to land with the right team willing to create a special role for him.
146. QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas (6-1, 220, Senior)
Doesn’t have a lot of what you’re looking for but character, toughness, leadership and competitiveness will get him a shot somewhere on Day 3.
147. TE Noah Gray, Duke (6-3, 240, Senior)
Gray’s leadership and want-to are what you’d like to find in every prospect, but he’s undersized and his measurables are all just adequate. He could have a future as a third tight end and special teams demon.
148. DT Khyiris Tonga, BYU (6-2, 325, Senior)
Natural two-gappers that can anchor themselves on the nose have a place in the NFL these days. Tonga will be intriguing as a two-down nose tackle to a team that plays a base 3-4 scheme.
149. RB Gerrid Doaks, Cincinnati (5-11, 228, Redshirt Senior)
No special traits but excellent lower-body thickness could allow him to make a living on short yardage situations pounding between the tackles.
150. TE Nick Eubanks, Michigan (6-4 ½, 245, Senior)
He looks the part and showed flashes of big-time athleticism and a nose for the end zone at Michigan. Teams that feature an H-back could be intrigued as he lacks inline blocking chops for the tight end position.
151. CB Shaun Wade, Ohio St. (6-1, 196, Redshirt Junior)
152. CB Marco Wilson, Florida (6-0, 191, Redshirt Junior)
153. C Michal Menet, Penn St. (6-4, 301, Redshirt Senior)
154. OT Josh Ball, Marshall (6-7, 308, Redshirt Senior)
155. LB Buddy Johnson, Texas A&M (6-0 ½, 229, Senior)
156. WR Anthony Schwartz, Auburn (6-0, 186 Junior)
157. EDGE Malcolm Koonce, Buffalo (6-2, 249, Senior)
158. EDGE Jordan Smith, Alabama-Birmingham (6-6, 255, Redshirt Junior)
159. WR D’Wayne Eskridge, Western Michigan (5-9, 190, Redshirt Senior)
160. EDGE Cameron Sample, Tulane (6-3, 267, Senior)
161. OG Royce Newman, Mississippi (6-5, 310, Redshirt Senior)
162. CB Israel Mukuamu, South Carolina (6-4, 212, Junior)
163. OG Jared Hocker, Texas A&M (6-6, 327, Senior)
164. S Christian Uphoff, Illinois St. (6-2, 209, Redshirt Senior)
165. WR Tre Nixon, UCF (6-0, 187, Redshirt Senior)
166. WR Kawaan Baker, South Alabama (6-1, 210, Redshirt Senior)
167. CB Zech McPhearson, Texas Tech (5-11, 191, Redshirt Senior)
168. RB Larry Rountree III, Missouri (5-11, 211, Senior)
169. LB Nick Niemann, Iowa (6-3, 234, Redshirt Senior)
170. S Talanoa Hufanga, USC (6-0, 199, Junior)
171. RB Jaret Patterson, Buffalo (5-6 ½, 195, Junior)
172. PK Jose Borregales, Miami (Fla.) (5-10, 206, Redshirt Senior)
173. DE Rashad Weaver, Pittsburgh (6-4, 259, Redshirt Senior)
174. S Caden Sterns, Texas (6-0, 202, Junior)
