I had Frank Ginda out of San Jose State as someone with a third round grade. Jermaine Kelly's teammate Andre Chachere was the field cornerback on San Jose State and got an invite to the 2018 NFL Combine. The fact that the Texans took Kelly gets an F grade. Houston already has Jonathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson, Kevin Johnson in the nickel, Aaron Colvin in the dime, and Treston DeCoud from last years draft as a quarter cornerback. I don't see anything special with Jermaine Kelly so the Texans get my third F grade in the first four picks of the seventh round.
There are a lot of premium receivers still on the board. Marcell Ateman is a solid pick for depth at this point in the seventh round though. There are better big bodied targets with more upside like Cobbs, Lazard, and Tate though. Still the 6-4 216 lb, Marcell Ateman was Mason Rudolph's biggest target.
Jason Sanders has a cannon for a leg and can make 52-yard field goals or more. His field goal percentage dropped in 2017, but you can argue he's got one of the three strongest legs in this class. There is a reason Miami passed on Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro for Sanders.
Carolina gets a reserve defensive tackle for depth. Kendrick Norton is not a top 350 player for me, but the Panthers are taking him as a reserve defensive tackle behind Kawaan Short, Dontari Poe, and Vernon Butler.
I gave this pick an F grade during my day 3 live draft special on Google Hangouts. After doing more research on Keion Crossen I found out he ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at Western Carolina's Pro Day and had a 39.5 inch vertical despite being 5-10 180 lbs. This is a much better pick than Duke Dawson in my mind who I'm not a fan of at all. At the same time the highest grade I can give this pick is a C grade.
I had a fourth round grade on Justin Lawler. However, this may be the wrong scheme fit for Lawler as he's much better for a 4-3 defense. That's why this pick only gets an A grade instead of an A+ grade.
Will Clapp was my top ranked center back in the preseason. He fell off the map, with bad tape in 2017. He's still worth a sixth round pick and for New Orleans to get him in the seventh round is an absolute steal.
Pitsburgh wastes this pick on a backup fo depth behind Javon Hargrave. Frazier will never start, but could become a nice quality backup to Hargrave. Considering how difficult it is to find a nose tackle this pick gets a C- grade despite being a reach due to the demand for a nose tackle along with Alabama's pedigree for developing NFL prospects on the defensive line.
He's a great run stuffer. Had 13.5 tackles for a loss and 6 sacks in 2017. I don't have an issue with him competing for a roster spot since Green Bay is happy with the four pass rushers on their current roster.
Cincinnati gets a third round prospect in the seventh round with this pick. Talk about getting a steal when it comes to replacing A.J. McCarron.
The Cincinnati Bengals draft a quarterback to groom behind Andy Dalton. Mark Sciubba wouldn't shut up about Kareem Hunt last year and we all know how good Hunt was as a rookie. Now he won't shut up about Logan Woodside. Even though Logan Wooside struggled in the NFLPA Bowl, many believe he may be the Andy Dalton of this draft. He threw well at the 2018 NFL Combine before going 51/54 at Toledo's Pro Day.
Logan Woodside had 3,882 passing yards, 28 passing touchdowns, 8 interceptions, and a 64.2 completion percentage after losing Kareem Hunt, Michael Williams, and left tackle Storm Norton in 2017. With those three players, Woodside completed 69.1 percent of his passes while having 45 passing touchdowns, 9 interceptions, and 4,129 passing yards in 2016. The bottom line is Woodside can thrive as a starter down the road if he develops under a team with a fantastic supporting cast like the one the Bengals have.
All the good starting tight ends were gone. Ryan Izzo was the only underclassmen at tight end still on the board plus he's a nice blocking tight end so New England may have decided to stash him for that sole reason.
Los Angeles got this compensation pick at 251 thanks to Manti Te'o signing with New Orleans. Justin Jackson had four consecutive seasons of 1,000 rushing yards and is the perfect change of pace back to compliment Melvin Gordon this late in the draft.
Cincinnati got this compensation pick at 252 thanks to Margus Hunt singing with Indianapolis. Rod Taylor got arrested for shoplifting in a Walmart and still got drafted by the Bengals so I'm giving the Bengals an Officer McGruff grade. Here is a photo of McGruff in case you forgot him.
Arizona got this compensation pick at 254 thanks to Alex Okafor signing with New Orleans. Arizona could have gotten another cornerback or a fullback. Instead they decided to bring in competition for Will Holden their second year offensive tackle out of Vanderbilt who didn't start in any games as a rookie. The Bengals passed on this local three times in the seventh round so clearly he sucks.
Tampa Bay got this compensation pick at 255 thanks to Bradley McDougald signing with Chicago. They had to send this pick to Buffalo in the Josh Allen trade so Buffalo got Josh Allen and Ricky Proehl's son at 255 thanks to trading 12, 53, and 56 to Tampa Bay.
Atlanta got this compensation pick at 256 thanks to Tom Compton signing with Minnesota. Atlanta sent this pick to the Rams and then they sent it to Washington thanks to some day 3 draft trades. Washington takes Trey Quinn to be Mr. Irrelevant in 2018. Quinn had more receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns than Courtland Sutton so I love this pick for that reason plus Quinn can play special teams too.
