77.) Cleveland Browns – TE/WR Devin Funchess, Michigan
Browns TE James Cameron is a free agent who sounds like he is in a hurry to get out of Cleveland. Funchess is a bit of a tweener without WR speed or TE blocking ability, but he could be a mismatch nightmare and the Browns need all the receiving weapons they can find.
78) Miami Dolphins – SS Anthony Harris, Virginia
Last year’s starting strong safety Louis Delmas is a free agent and not likely to be back so the Phins need to find a safety to pair with the solid Reshad Jones. Harris is an underrated strong safety prospect who is pretty solid in all aspects.
79.) San Francisco 49ers – CB D’Joun Smith, Florida Atlantic
Both of the Niners starting corners are free agents as well as back up Chris Cook, so they need some depth even if they bring most of their free agents corners back. Smith is the best corner available at this point of the draft and showed better than expected speed at the combine. He has quick feet, great ball skills and is aggressive against the run. Smith could earn a starting spot as a rookie if the Niners lose Culliver or Cox.
80.) Kansas City Chiefs – OT Ty Sambrailo, Colorado St
Former #1 overall pick Eric Fisher is looking like a bust for the Chiefs and he’s certainly not an NFL left tackle. Fisher may be able to hold his own on the right side and Sambrailo has a chance to make it as an NFL left tackle if he can get stronger. He has elite footwork and is a steal this late in the draft.

81.) Buffalo Bills – QB Bryce Petty, Baylor
With the retirement of Kyle Orton the Bills are stuck with E.J. Manuel at QB unless they can find a free agent stop-gap (Sanchez, McCoy). Petty has good size, the necessary confidence, athleticism and an NFL arm but the transition from a spread offense to an NFL scheme may take at least a year or two. Either way, the Bills need some new talent at the QB position.
82.) Houston Texans – WR Nelson Agholor, USC
Texans legend Andre Johnson may not be back next year and they have little talent behind promising WR DeAndre Hopkins. Agholor is a smooth receiver with good route-running ability and reliable hands.
83.) San Diego Chargers – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomo, Oregon
The Chargers #1 CB Brandon Flowers is a free agent but they do have last year’s first round pick Jason Verrett coming back from injury. Once both Verrett and Ekpre-Olomo are healthy the Chargers could have one of the best young starting corner tandems in the West.
84.) Philadelphia Eagles – S Derron Smith, Fresno St
The Eagles need help in the secondary and Smith is excellent in pass coverage, albeit a little undersized. He has good instincts in coverage, great ball skills, and is a willing tackler in run defense. His lack of size and length could be a liability against big receivers, but that is Smith’s only clear weakness.
