There are still two centers with starter grades still on the board. Instead the Raiders decided to take the third best center for depth who is currently listed as a third string center behind the top two centers on the Las Vegas Raiders depth chart. Jimmy Morrissey is my top ranked backup center still on the board.
Kary Vincent Jr. could develop into a good nickel cornerback for Denver down the road.
Kary Vincent Jr. was the nickel cornerback on LSU's 15-0 team. He can learn under Bryce Callahan and then take over as a nickel cornerback at some point down the road. It will be very difficult for teams to throw to their slot receivers with both Bryce Callahan and Kary Vincent Jr. both locked into the nickel spot giving Denver great depth at nickel cornerback.
Dallas drafts a guard for depth at left guard behidn Connor Williams. Matt Farniok has experience at offensive tackle, guard, and center providing great versatility on the offensive line for the Dallas Cowboys. The versatility is why I gave Dallas a B grade despite having an undrafted grade on Matt Farniok.
The 6-4 306 lb Michal Menet can pass block, run block, and zone block effectively on the offensive line. He is a good center prospect since he was able to beat out Connor McGovern for the center job at Penn State as a sophomore redshirt in 2018. He's a good player for Arizona to develop for the future behind Rodney Hudson.
I posted a film cut of Penn State center Michal Menet VS Penn State. Go ahead and check it out.
I'm not exactly sure why the Rams drafted a third receiver when they had much bigger needs. I guess you now have depth behind Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and Van Jefferson if injuries occur. This pick still felt like a reach though.
Chris Garrett had 20.5 tackles for a loss and 14 sacks in 2019 at Conrcordia St. Paul a Division II school. Concordia St. Paul did not play in 2020 due to Covid-19. Los Angeles with a solid pick as they draft Chris Garrett for depth.
Pittsburgh wraps up their draft with the Ray Guy Award Winner in 2020 at punter. Pressley Harvin III was the best punter in College Football and my second best punter in this draft behind Kentucky punter Max Duffy. I only had one punter Duffy getting drafted, but Pressley Harvin III could be a nice punter for Pittsburgh.
Green Bay gets a running back for depth behind Aaron Jones and last years second round pick A.J. Dillon. I had a fourth round grade on Kylin Hill so I absolutely love this pick by the Green Bay Packers this late in the seventh round.
Detroit cut their 2018 second round pick Kerryon Johnson. They got D'Andre Swift their 2020 second round pick as the starting running back. Jamaal Williams the Packers backup who lost the backup role to A.J. Dillon as their backup running bakc and Jermar Jefferson as their third string running back.
Tony Mario correctly predicted Mr. Irrelevant for the first time in Draft Utopia history. I'm so proud of Tony that I linked his mock for confirmation. I also posted Tony's writeup from his mock draft in the next paragraph below.
Tampa Bay drafts a second 3-4 outside linebacker for depth. My Mr. Irrelevant is Grant Stuard out of Houston who has great film. His athleticism may not be what you want it to be, but he's too talented to go undrafted.
If you managed to read picks 1-259 you are a real trooper. It's fans like you that make Draft Utopia the Utopia Of Sports what it is today.
