7th Round – 233rd overall
Cam – Carter Coughlin, EDGE, Minnesota
While he’s listed as one, Coughlin is not an EDGE. I feel he was meant for the 3/4 off-ball linebacker role. He is as fast as Danny Trevathan and has solid explosive movements. He is 6-foot-3, 236 pounds, and played the EDGE rusher/ move linebacker in college. He’s not a run and chase weak side linebacker like Roquan Smith is. This kid is a strong side Linebacker. His film speaks for itself, and he often calls the play before it happens.
Parker – Carter Coughlin, EDGE, Minnesota
Coughlin is an edge rusher, who may have to move inside in the NFL. With the versatility of Murchinson, the two can combine for help on the edge, while Murchinson can step up inside, and Coughlin can slide in as depth at the LB spot as well. He has a great shot to make the roster due to special teams value.
Rob – Carter Coughlin, OLB/EDGE, Minnesota
I was not a fan of the options left here. Was deciding between Sewo Olonilua, running back out of TCU, and Carter Coughlin. Coughlin was a four-star recruit coming out of high school. He was heavily recruited but eventually chose Minnesota – the same school his father and grandfather went.
Coughlin is a smart linebacker who is very quick but lacks the power needed to be an every-down player. He should make an immediate impact on special teams, and Chuck Pagano could find ways to use his speed in certain sub-packages on defense.
Ryan – Cole McDonald, QB, Hawaii
McDonald has a huge arm and is reportedly working on fixing his throwing mechanics. I worry about those mechanics breaking down outside of the pocket, but he’s an extremely underrated prospect. He easily replaces Tyler Bray as the third QB on the depth chart with the potential to earn first-team reps next year, depending on what happens with both Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles.
