3 of 4

113.) Houston Texans – QB Garrett Grayson, Colorado St

After Winston and Mariota all the QBs have significant questions and Grayson may very well be the 3rd best QB prospect in the draft which would make him a good value here. The Texans certainly need help at the position and a 4th round pick is a relatively small price to pay for a guy like Grayson who has considerable upside.

114.) San Diego Chargers – WR Ty Montgomery, Stanford

Would have gone a round or two higher had he left school after his junior year, but a disappointing senior season and lackluster combine has dropped his stock. Montgomery is an explosive player with dangerous YAC skills and kick return ability. If he is healthy and motivated next year, Montgomery could be a steal this late.

115.) Kansas City Chiefs – G Jamil Douglas, Arizona St 

The Chiefs needs an upgrade over both their starting guards last year and Douglas has the ability to contribute as a rookie. It doesn’t always look pretty, but he gets the job done consistently and is versatile enough to fill in at right tackle in a pinch.

116.) Philadelphia Eagles – RB T.J. Yeldon, Alabama

I had this pick in before the news broke about the LeSean McCoy / Kiko Alonzo trade, but I still think it makes sense with diminutive Darrin Sproles as the only RB on the roster right now. Yeldon has the size to be a power back, but the quick feet, soft hands and shiftiness to be a 3-down back. Ideally he will drop about 10 pounds to get his 2013 burst back and avoiding injuries has also been an issue. Yeldon is a top-50 talent, but hasn’t played like it in over a year. Worth a gamble this late.

117.) Cincinnati Bengals – OLB Jake Ryan, Michigan

Linebacker was once a strong point for the Bengals, but Rey Maualuga is a free agent and Emmanuel Lamur was a disappointment last season. Ryan is an instinctive player who ran an impressive 4.6 40-time at the combine and plays even faster than that. He’s a solid tackler who should be able to contribute right away as a SAM backer.

118.) Pittsburgh Steelers – RB Javorius “Buck” Allen, USC

May have gone a round or two higher if Allen stuck around for his senior year, but for some reason he chose to join the most loaded RB class in years. That’s good news for the Steelers who get a well-round RB with 3-down potential to back up Le’Veon Bell. With Bell possibly facing a 4-game suspension to start the seasons, the Steelers need a capable RB to take over and Allen has the talent to surprise.

119.) Detroit Lions – DT Gabe Wright, Auburn

Will probably go much higher than this, but there are just a few mid-tier DTs I like better. Wright has a good burst off the line, used his hands well, can push the pocket, and has a great motor. The Lions could potentially lose their top 3 DTs this offseason and desperately need depth at the position.

120.) Arizona Cardinals – OG Robert Myers, Tennessee St

High-upside player who dominated lesser competition, but faces a big talent jump. Myers has the size, power and movement skills to become a solid NFL guard, but it may take a year or two.
