NFL Mock Draft – Round 7

3 of 5

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.
