7th Round – 266th overall
Cam – Myles Dorn, DB, North Carolina
Much Like Deon Bush, he played corner and safety. Dorn has good size and athleticism. He’s listed at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, and could use Bush as a mentor. Dorn wasn’t invited to the combine but shows promise as a defender. He played basketball as well in high school, so with some NFL coaching, they might unlock something useful.
Parker – Quez Watkins, WR, Southern Miss
The Chicago Bears replace Taylor Gabriel with Quez Watkins. Watkins profiles similarly with a smaller stature but has blazing speed that teams must respect. He is a different profile to Riley Ridley and Javon Wims and should fit them well
Rob – Jon Runyan, Jr., OG, Michigan
Back to the offensive side of the ball. It was between quarterback Kelly Bryant and Jon Runyan, Jr. Going back to the mentality of guys who can play this year, I am going with Runyan. We need to realize he is not his father. He has the same football IQ but lacks some of the physicality. He needs to refine his technical skills and add some power to his frame.
At this point in the draft, though, he is a guy you would take a shot on. That makes two players who had All-Pro fathers in the league. Could one live up to their father’s name? Let us hope for both.
Ryan – Daniel Thomas, S, Auburn
As a team captain for the Tiger’s defense, Thomas will have a chance to compete for the starting strong safety spot with Deon Bush. He’s a terrific run-stopper, recording nine tackles for loss during his four years on campus. He also collected 200 tackles, five picks, and eight pass breakups.
