NFL Mock Draft – Round 7

4 of 5

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.
