Complete NFL Mock Draft – All 7 Rounds

7 of 9

Round 7

193. Texans: OLB Prince Shembo, Notre Dame (6’2, 254): Max effort linebacker with good strength, but very raw technique. Shembo had 17 QB hurries last year so there is some potential there.

194. Redskins: DE Taylor Hart, Oregon (6’6, 292): 3-4 DE who is a good run stopper but doesn’t show much pass rush potential at the NFL level. Plays hard and smart though and should be a solid rotational D-lineman.

195. Browns: WR Michael Campanaro, Wake Forest (5’10,191) – Classic slot receiver profile with good hands and elusiveness on underneath routes. Campanaro could give the Browns what they thought they were getting when they signed Devone Bess.

196. Raiders: S Sean Parker, Washington (5’10, 193) – A little small for strong safety, but Parker makes up for it with good instincts, ball skills, and tackling.

197. Falcons: DT Calvin Barnett, Oklahoma St (6’2, 300) – All Big12 two seasons in a row. His stats aren’t that impressive, but Barnett was disruptive in the middle for the Cowboys the last two seasons. He’s strong with a quick first step; Better at stopping the run than rushing the passer but will provide occasional pressure up the middle.

198. Buccaneers: WR Cody Lattimer, Indiana (6’2, 215) – Big receiver who was productive as a junior (72, 1096, 9) but probably should have stayed in school one more year to improve the finer points of his game. Lattimer has good (not great) speed and has shown great hands at times but also drops some easy ones. His route-running needs work.

199. Jaguars: DT Khyri Thorton, Southern Mississippi (6’2, 301) – Dominated the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl despite being double-teamed most of the time. Thorton has an intriguing mix of speed & power and showed good hand play on tape. Plays too high at times and can be pushed around, but good potential.

200. Vikings: CB Nevin Larson, Utah St (5’10, 184) – Short, but strong with good fluidity in coverage. Profiles as a nickel back in the pros.

201. Bills: CB Andre Hal, Vanderbilt (6’0, 190) – All-SEC corner who played well against the top receivers in the conference. Hal is smooth in coverage, but doesn’t have top-end speed and is a non-factor against the run. Should be a solid 3rd-4th corner.

202. Giants: DE Ethan Westbrooks, W Texas A&M – Dominant rusher at the DII level (46.5 TFLs, 26.5 sacks in two seasons) who had 2 sacks in Shrine game against an upgrade in competition. Westbrooks has a quick first step and a myriad of polished pass rush moves. Intriguing prospect who could go much higher.

203. Rams: OLB Ronald Powell, Florida (6’3, 240) – Great athlete who was the #1 recruit coming out of high school ( Two ACL injuries derailed Powell’s college career, but he still moves very well for his size. Powell has good pass rush skills and if he passes team’s medical checks he could move up a round or two.

204. Lions: TE Colt Lyerla, Oregon (6’5, 250) – Troubled tight-end who left Oregon during the season for “personal reasons”. Lyerla has legitimate first round talent, but concern about his maturity and off-field problems could keep him out of the draft all together. With a starting TE already in place, Joe Fauria, the Lions can afford to take a risk on the talented Lyerla. If he can get his head on straight he could be an All-Pro. If not he could be out of the league in a year or two. It’s a big gamble, but that’s what the 7th round is for.

205. Titans: ILB DeDe Lattimore., South Florida (6’0-, 237) – Explosive tackler inside who is very aggressive against the run. Good blitzer. Lattimore is a little slow and doesn’t have ideal height, so he could struggle in coverage. Worst case, Lattimore will make a solid 2-down LB.

206. Cowboys: WR Kevin Norwood, Alabama (6’2, 197) – Fits the WR profile (6’2, 200) that the Cowboys target in the draft. Norwood was underused at Alabama, but looked great at the Senior Bowl and is a well-rounded prospect with no glaring weakness but not a lot of upside either. Lacks elite speed.

207. Steelers: OLB Devon Kinnard, USC (6’3, 257) – USC team captain in 2013 who led the team with 8 sacks. Kinnard could develop into a solid pass rusher at OLB in the Steelers scheme.

208. Cowboys: RB James White, Wisconsin (5’9, 206) – Part of RB rotation at Wisconsin, so he should have plenty of mileage left. White had a big week at the Senior Bowl showing great receiving skills, a powerful stiff-arm, and good pass blocking. White would upgrade the Cowboys depth behind DeMarco Murray.

209. Colts: RB D’Anthony Thomas, Oregon (5’9, 170) – The Colts have a couple of decent power backs in Brown and T-Rich, but Thomas would give them a change of pace speed back. He could also contribute on special teams as a returner.

210. Jets: – FB JC Copeland, LSU (5’11, 285) – Massive FB who dominated the Collegiate Bowl as a blocker and short yardage back (2 TDs). Copeland needs to lose a little weight and get quicker to the hole, but his big personality and devastating run blocking will make him a Rex Ryan favorite right away. Copeland could develop into an Ironhead Heyward type ball carrier.

211. Dolphins: – DT Jay Bromley, Syracuse (6’3, 307) – Quick, disruptive DT who had 9 sacks his senior year. After watching tape on Bromley I think he could go much higher than this. He needs to get stronger, but has an explosive first step and the versatility to play DE in a 3-4.

212. Raiders: WR Tevin Reese, Baylor (5’10, 170) – One of the faster receivers in the draft who was on pace for a huge year before breaking his wrist. Reese would give the Raiders a dangerous slot receiver and return man.

213. Packers: OLB Tyler Starr, South Dakota (6’4, 249) – Athletic small school prospect who had 27 sacks over the course of his career and is an interesting pass rushing prospect. He will give Clay Matthews and AJ Hawk competition for the girliest hair style on the Packers.

214. Eagles: DT Ryan Carrethers, Arkansas St (6’1, 330) – Didn’t dominate as much as he should have in the Sun-Belt conference, but has the size and strength to be an NFL nose tackle. Carrethers is a good athlete for a man his size. He was tough against the run in college and showed some pass rush ability but not consistently. Good developmental prospect.

215. Chiefs: S Pierre Warren, Jacksonville St (6’1, 202) – Small school prospect with great size and a lot of potential. Very productive last season, leading his team in both tackles (76) and interceptions (5). The jump from the Ohio Valley conference to the NFL is steep, but Warren has NFL tools and should be able to contribute down the road.

216. Bengals: LB Caleb Lavey, Oklahoma St (6’2, 235) – Not the most athletic linebacker but very productive last season (93 tackles, 12.5 TFLs, 4 Ints, 3 forced fumbles) and consistently in the right place on defense. Good football instincts make up for a lack of NFL measurables. Lavey’s floor is an excellent special teams player.

217. Chargers: DE Ed Stinson, Alabama (6’3, 292) – Good size and athletic ability for a 3-4 DE but his production (41 tackle, 2.5 sacks) never matched up to his talent in college. Stinson could be a rotational DE who plays the run well on early downs.

218. 49ers: CB Deone Belue, Alabama (5’11, 183) – Good all-around skill set. A little shorter than ideal and doesn’t have great hands, but shows very good footwork and is consistently in good position to make a play on the ball. Belue should be a solid back-up corner with starter potential.

219. 49ers: RB Antonio Andrews, Western Kentucky (5’10, 225) – Power running back who led the nation in yards from scrimmage for two seasons in a row. Runs with good lean and will fight for extra yards. Andrews isn’t a burner, but he’s a tough runner between the tackles who will be good insurance if Gore finally breaks down or Marcus Lattimore isn’t ready to play in 2014.

220. 49ers: CB Bennett Jackson, Notre Dame (6’0, 187) – Good size, but not quick enough to survive in man coverage. Excels in cover 2 / cover 3 zones and is a very good tackler. Jackson was an excellent gunner for 2 years in college so he can help out on special teams right away while he develops as a corner.

221. Patriots: QB Dustin Vaughn, West Texas A&M (6’5, 232) – Great size, a big-time arm, and surprisingly light feet in the pocket. Vaughn would replace Ryan Mallet as the Pats developmental QB. He was the best QB at the Collegiate Bowl, but will take some time to adapt to the leap from DII to the NFL. Worth a draft pick and some developmental time, Vaughn has starter upside.

222. 49ers: WR TJ Jones,  Notre Dame (6’0, 190) – More receiving depth for the Niners. Jones is solid across the board but nothing really stands out. He was productive as a senior (70, 1108, 9) despite inconsistent QB play.

223. Broncos:  C Gabe Ikard, Oklahoma (6’3, 302) – Great value pick for the Broncos in the 7th round. Ikard needs to get a lot stronger to be effective in the NFL. He was pushed around at the Senior Bowl, but has a lot of skill. Ikard is quick off the ball, technically sound, runs well, and was a leader on the Sooners O-line. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was starting for the Broncos by his 3rd year in the league.

224. Seahawks: DE Larry Webster, Bloomberg (6’6, 249) – Development pick for the Seahawks to end the draft. Webster was a star basketball player at Bloomberg who has only played college football the last two years. He showed some natural pass rush ability (26 sacks in 2 years) and a very quick first step. Webster is built like a flag pole so he needs to add considerable weight. He is stronger than he looks, Webster pancaked a much bigger offensive tackle on a bull rush during the Shrine Game. Webster is at least a year or two away from contributing but has a ton of upside.
