Tony Mario's 2018 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds

Round 4

Tony Mario Last Updated: April 25, 2018.

  1. Green Bay Packers: Duke Ejiofor, RE, Wake Forest

    Green Bay replaced Capers with Mike Pettine as their new defensive coordinator. He plans on tranistioning Green Bay's defense from a 3-4 base to a hybrid defense that operates both 3-4 and 4-3 players. If Green Bay takes Marcus Davenport at 14 it could signal a transition to the 4-3 sooner rather than later.

    Green Bay kicks off the fourth round with Wake Forest defensive end Duke Ejiofor. He can be a situational pass rusher in Green Bay where he's only used on 4-3 plays until Green Bay gets more players that can play in a 4-3 defense becuase outside of Kenny Clark, Montravius Adams, and Blake Martinez the Packers, have no other guys on that defense that can play the 4-3 effectively outside of those three so if the Packers want to play a hybrid defense they will have to add a player who compliments a 4-3 really well like Duke Ejiofor here.

    Other Green Bay Packers Selections

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State

    The Buccaneers get a running back to replace Doug Martin here. Kalen Ballage has aced every part of the draft process whether its the 2018 Senior Bowl, the 2018 NFL Combine, or Arizona State's 2018 NFL Pro Day where he ran a 4.35 40-yard dash.

    Other Tampa Bay Buccaneers Selections

  3. Houston Texans: Kyzir White, SS, West Virginia

    Houston got Tyrann Mathieu at free safety. A strong safety is still needed. I like Kyzir White as a strong safety and getting him this early in the fourth round is fantastic value.

    White isn't as focused as I'd like him to be in this film session. He's a hard hitting safety and an incredibly talented in that area making him a nice fourth round addition here.

    Other Houston Texans Selections

  4. Indianapolis Colts: Isaac Yiadom, CB, Boston College

    Indianapolis has Quincy Wilson as their number one field cornerback their 2017 second round pick. Isaac Yiadom is talented enough to beat out Nate Hairston for the boundary cornerback job complimenting Quincy Wilson as a number two corner in Indianapolis.

    Other Indianapolis Colts Selections

  5. Chicago Bears: Wyatt Teller, LG, Virginia Tech

    Chicago has Charles Leno Jr. at left tackle, Cody Whitehair at left guard, Hroniss Grasu at center, Kyle Long at right guard, and Bobbie Massie at right tackle. Wyatt Teller can play left guard and Whitehair can move to center if Grassu gets injured again in 2018.

    Other Chicago Bears Selections

  6. Denver Broncos: Darius Leonard, 3-4 MLB, South Carolina State

    Denver gets a 3-4 middle linebacker for depth here. Darius Leonard is a great depth player and I don't trust Su'a Cravens in Denver. Leonard was a tackling machine on tape and had a good Senior Bowl week too even though he didn't make the splash you wanted him to in Mobile.

    Other Denver Broncos Selections

  7. New York Jets: DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Penn State

    New York gets more competition for the slot receiver job. Outside of Terrell Pryor and Roby Anderson who does Rosen have to throw to. None of the rookie receivers that the Jets had the last three years have emerged into stars so they just have to keep adding weapons until Rosen has the to targets to succeed.

    Other New York Jets Selections

  8. New York Giants: Nick Nelson, CB, Wisconsin

    New York needs cornerback competition. I got Nick Nelson graded as a day 3 pick now. He was a potential day 2 pick before getting injured at Wisconsin's Pro Day.

    Other New York Giants Selections

  9. Washington Redskins: Tarvarius Moore, SS, Southern Mississippi

    Washington picks here. Tarvarious Moore is a sleeper who is versatile enough to play strong safety or free safety.

    Other Washington Redskins Selections

  10. Oakland Raiders: Colby Gossett, RG, Appalachian State

    The Oakland Raiders get a right guard for depth that would be starting right away on any other offensive line that had issues at right guard. There isn't a right tackle worth taking here so Oakland grabs depth at guard instead by taking the best offensive lineman on the board.

    Other Oakland Raiders Selections

  11. Los Angeles Rams: Marquis Haynes, 3-4 ROLB, Ole Miss

    Los Angeles needs 3-4 outside linebackers with Robert Quinn and Connor Barwin gone. Marquis Haynes is the top 3-4 pass rusher on the board here.

    Other Los Angeles Rams Selections

  12. Cincinnati Bengals: Kemoko Turay, ROLB, Rutgers

    Cincinnati gets a linebacker for depth. Vontaze Burfict just can't seem to avoid suspensions.

    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections

  13. Denver Broncos: Tre'Quan Smith, WR, Central Florida

    Denver wide receiver depth here. They got three short-term wide receivers who can start with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Carlos Henderson in the slot. Tre'Quan Smith is someone who can replace Cody Lattimer and develop under Thomas and Sanders for a couple of years before becoming a great starter down the road.

    Other Denver Broncos Selections

  14. Cleveland Browns: Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays State

    The Browns get a starting defensive tackle here. Nathan Shepherd out of Fort Hays State has second round tape. The small school defensive tackle falls to day 3 where the Browns get a massive steal and immediate starter at defensive tackle.

    Previous Pick: Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa State

    Other Cleveland Browns Selections

  15. Chicago Bears: Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama

    Chicago gets a nickel cornerback for depth here. They extended both Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara so if they take a corner, it will be a nickel corner on day 3 liek Anthony Averett.

    Other Chicago Bears Selections

  16. Dallas Cowboys: Skyler Phillips, LG, Idaho State

    Dallas grabs the top left guard. Skyler Phillips is available and while he struggled at left tackle at Idaho State, he'd do much better if he got kicked inside to left guard. Dallas needs a left guard so they get Phillips here.

    Other Dallas Cowboys Selections

  17. Detroit Lions: Jeff Holland, ROLB, Auburn

    Detroit gets Tahir Whitehead's replacement here. Jeff Holland was a sack artist at Auburn despite having a really poor 2018 NFL Combine. He provides fantastic value for Patricia's hybrid defense here though.

    Other Detroit Lions Selections

  18. Baltimore Ravens: Josey Jewell, 3-4 MLB, Iowa

    Baltimore takes the best player on the board. Josey Jewell has four consecutive seasons of over 120 tackles at Iowa despite having some durability concerns. He's better than Correa when healthy so this is an awesome value pick for the Ravens.

    Other Baltimore Ravens Selections

  19. Los Angeles Chargers: Rasheem Green, DT, USC

    The Los Angeles Chargers draft a defensive tackle for depth here. Rasheem Green may even get to start right away too with Corey Liuget being suspended for the first four games of 2018.

    Other Los Angeles Chargers Selections

  20. Seattle Seahawks: Sean Welsh, RG, Iowa
    Seattle gets a right guard here and moves Ethan Pocic to left guard. Sean Welsh is a nice addition for Seattle here in the fourth round.

    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections

  21. Buffalo Bills: Will Clapp, C, LSU

    Buffalo gets a center here. They signed Russell Bodine in Free Agency, but he sucks. This is actually the only place where Clapp could beat out the current projected starter for a starting job.

    Previous Pick: Levi Wallace, CB, Alabama

    Other Buffalo Bills Selections

  22. Kansas City Chiefs: Gerod Christian, RT, Louisville

    The Chiefs get Gerod Christian as a swing tackle behind Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz. Christian can be an average starter if he gets stronger, right now he's just a depth player though.

    Other Kansas City Chiefs Selections

  23. Miami Dolphins: Da'Shawn Hand, DT, Alabama

    Miami bolsters their depth on the defensive line. Da'Shawn Hand can play both defensive tackle and defensive end.

    Other Miami Dolphins Selections

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Breeland Speaks, 3-4 RE, Ole Miss

    The Chiefs get depth at 5-technique. Breeland Speaks is the best player on the board.

    Other Kansas City Chiefs Selections

  25. Tennessee Titans: Kameron Kelly, CB, San Diego State

    Tennessee gets a more depth at defensive back. Kameron Kelly played cornerback at San Diego State. He's one cornerback in this class that I see converting to safety once he gets tot he NFL.

    Other Tennessee Titans Selections

  26. Atlanta Falcons: Jaleel Scott, WR, New Mexico State

    Atlanta lost Taylor Gabriel as their slot receiver. Not only can Jaleel Scott take the slot receiver job, he probably could push Mohamed Sanu for the number two spot as well.

    Other Atlanta Falcons Selections

  27. New Orleans Saints: Deadrin Senat, DT, South Florida

    The Saints get a defensive tackle in the fourth round. Deadrin Senat did a lot at South Florida and is a nice addition on day 3 even if he only ends up in a depth role.

    Other New Orleans Saints Selections

  28. San Francisco 49ers: Micah Kiser, MLB, Virginia

    San Francisco grabs a middle linebacker for depth. Kiser has all the tools to be a great linebacker. He just needs to learn to win blocks and hit the weight room. In fact in this situation, he could start sooner than later if Reuben Foster screws up again or draws the Go To Jail card.

    Other San Francisco 49ers Selections

  29. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kurt Benkert, QB, Virginia

    Jacksonville takes a quarterback for depth here. Blake Bortles will remain the starter. Kurt Benkert VS Cody Kessler could be a fun competition though.

    Other Jacksonville Jaguars Selections

  30. Philadelphia Eagles: Jerome Baker, ROLB, Ohio State

    Philadelphia gets outside linebacker depth. Jerome Baker is talented enough to start right now, but since the Eagles have both of their outside linebackers back under contract he gets to be used in a depth role at outside linebacker.

    Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections

  31. Miami Dolphins: Malik Jefferson, MLB, Texas

    The Dolphins get a middle linebacker here. Malik Jefferson lacks the instincts of a starting middle linebacker and does a poor job wrapping up tackles. There are also questions about his passion and committment to the game of football. He's even skipped practices. The questions about Malik Jefferson that scouts have are completely legitimate and are actually much worse than what most casual fans believe.

    Other Miami Dolphins Selections

  32. Philadelphia Eagles: Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin

    Philadelphia grabs Brent Celek's replacement here. Troy Fumagalli is an awesome bargain at this point in the 2018 NFL Draft.

    Previous Pick: Justin Watson, WR, Penn

    Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections

  33. Green Bay Packers: Deontay Burnett, WR, USC

    Green Bay got this compensation pick at 133 thanks to T.J. Lang signing with Detroit. The Packers haven't taken a slot receiver to pair with Randall Cobb and DaVante Adams. Deontay Burnett is still there.

    Other Green Bay Packers Selections

  34. Arizona Cardinals: Quin Blanding, FS, Virginia

    Arizona got this compensation pick at 134 thanks to Tony Jefferson signing with Baltimore. Arizona gets a safety here. Quin Blanding can provide some depth at safety for Arizona.

    Other Arizona Cardinals Selections

  35. Los Angeles Rams: Timon Parris, LT, Stony Brook

    New York got this compensation pick at 135 thanks to Jonathan Hankins signing with Indianapolis. New York traded this pick to the Rams for Alec Ogletree since teams can trade compensation picks. Timon Parris gives the Rams a depth player on the offensive line and a potential successor to Andrew Whitworth down the road.

    Other Los Angeles Rams Selections

  36. Los Angeles Rams: JC Jackson, CB, Maryland

    New England got this compensation pick at 136 thanks to Jabaal Sheard signing with Indianapolis. However, the Los Angeles Rams got this compensation pick thanks to the Brandin Cooks trade. JC Jackson could be a good starter down the road. He gets to learn behind veterans like Aqib Talib and Sam Shields during his rookie season.

    Other Los Angeles Rams Selections

  37. Dallas Cowboys: Levi Wallace, CB, Alabama

    Dallas got this compensation pick at 137 thanks to Ronald Leary signing with Denver. They get Levi Wallace to compliment Chidobe Awuzie at boundary cornerback. Jourdan Lewis can remain in the nickel role giving Dallas an effective trio of cornerbacks.

    Other Dallas Cowboys Selections
