ROUND 4

.
Patriots – Boyce, Josh – WR – 5’11″ – 206 – TCU – 72.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A very “Belichickian” pick for the Patriots. Boyce had an injury that dropped him down boards, but he is a great down-the-field pick who reminds me a lot of the Aaron Dobson pick from Day 2. Doubling down on a big need is a path toward success for a team that is already in contention.” – Grade: B+

Packers – Bakhtiari, David – OT – 6’4″ – 299 – Colorado – 70.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great pick and great value for Ted Thompson (redundancy alert!). I think Bakhtiari has upside as a left tackle, but I’ve been told that some teams had him as a top center in this draft class. Others had him as a top guard.” – Grade: A-

Bengals – Porter, Sean – LB – 6’1″ – 229 – Texas A&M – 71.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Bengals wanted depth in the linebacking corps, and Porter is a good prospect who can chase in pursuit as well as blitz the QB from both the interior and the exterior. Great depth for an already-great defense.” – Grade: B

Redskins – Thomas, Phillip – S – 6’0″ – 208 – Fresno St. – 74.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another defensive pick for the Redskins, who needed a lot of help in their defensive backfield. Thomas has a better chance to start early on than their first pick, David Amerson. Thomas has good athleticism and great ball skills.” – Grade: A

Vikings – Hodges, Gerald – LB – 6’1″ – 243 – Penn St. – 72.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great fit for Hodges who could come in and start as a middle linebacker by year two in Minnesota. They’re desperate for a player there and are lucky Hodges fell to them. He’s a heady defender and a great young man to add to the locker room. It’s a bit of a reach, in my opinion, but I definitely understand what they saw in him.” – Grade: A-

Colts – Holmes, Khaled – C – 6’3″ – 302 – USC – 71.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Holmes was my top-rated zone-blocking center in this draft class. In a non-ZBS scheme, I wouldn’t have touched him until the seventh, but in the Colts’ scheme, he should be fantastic. They had a need at the position and picked up the perfect player to fill it. I think he starts in his first year because of where he landed.” – Grade: A

Packers – Tretter, J.C. – OT – 6’4″ – 307 – Cornell – 64.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Tretter has been on a lot of lists as a “small school stud,” but I never saw it up close or on tape. He’s a tweener in the worst sense of the word, and I’m not sure he’ll ever find a starting position on even the Packers offensive line. Think they could’ve gotten a better player at guard in Round 5.” – Grade: C-

Seahawks – Harper, Chris – WR – 6’1″ – 229 – Kansas St. – 68.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I think Harper ends up as one of the better receivers on the Seahawks roster. He caught everything at Senior Bowl practices and has a little Percy Harvin in his game, as he has enough body size to line up at a bunch of different places. I love his physicality down the field.” – Grade: A

Texans – Williams, Trevardo – DE – 6’1″ – 241 – Connecticut – 66.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another great pass-rushing prospect for Houston. This is a reach for the Texans, but they clearly have a “type” in this class. Williams will need to stick on special teams to get a lot of burn, but in a rotation at outside linebacker, he’ll provide a little spark once he warms up to the NFL game.” – Grade: B

Packers – Franklin, Johnathan – RB – 5’10″ – 205 – UCLA – 72.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Think the Packers targeted a certain position this offseason? “Jetski” Franklin is one of my favorite young men in this draft class and a fantastic football player. I know of a few teams that had second-round grades on Franklin, and I thought he could potentially sneak into the first. Great pick even if it wasn’t a great need.” – Grade: B+

Falcons – Goodman, Malliciah – DE – 6’4″ – 276 – Clemson – 67.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a rotational pass-rusher for a team that was looking for an eventual starter, which I’m not sure Goodman can ever be. That said, he’ll provide them some burst on third downs and could be useful in a “NASCAR” pass-rushing front.” – Grade: B+

49ers – Patton, Quinton – WR – 6’0″ – 204 – Louisiana Tech – 83.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I wasn’t alone when I thought Patton could’ve snuck into the first two rounds. Big hands that he’s able to get up both down the field and across the middle. He is physical, uses his body well and can play inside and out. Impressive pick from a team that’s had a bunch of those in this draft.” – Grade: A+

Ravens – Simon, John – DE – 6’1″ – 257 – Ohio St. – 70.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Simon is smaller than Paul Kruger, but he reminds me a little bit of the player the Ravens lost this offseason. He doesn’t have a true position in either a 3-4 or a 4-3, but the Ravens have gotten where they are by finding roles and molding that type of player. A reach, in my opinion, but I hate to argue with Ozzie Newsome.” – Grade: B+

Ravens – Juszczyk, Kyle – FB – 6’1″ – 248 – Harvard – 53.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A nice H-back prospect for the Ravens, who love smart, high-character players. More than just a great Scrabble play, Juszczyk is an athletic player who can catch the ball. He won’t play FB over Vonta Leach, but he’ll be a nice Swiss Army knife for Joe Flacco and that offense.” – Grade: B+

49ers – Lattimore, Marcus – RB – 5’11″ – 221 – South Carolina – 74.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Goodness gracious… The Niners aren’t playing around today and grabbed a player who could end up being the best running back in this class. He’s such a fantastic talent, but leg injuries have made some question if he’ll ever make an impact. They have the ability to sit him and even put him on the IR his rookie year if he’s not healthy.” – Grade: A+

Falcons – Toilolo, Levine – TE – 6’8″ – 260 – Stanford – 66.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Off of 2011 tape, Toilolo is a value pick, but some thought he could fall much later after a disappointing 2012. Tall and athletic, the Falcons will hope Tony Gonzalez rubs off on him, and Toilolo reaches some of that untapped potential.” – Grade: C+

.
ROUND 5

.
Seahawks – Williams, Jesse – DT – 6’3″ – 323 – Alabama – 85.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Knee injuries concerned teams enough to drop him to this point, but Williams has first-round talent. He’ll end up as the “elephant” end on the Seahawks and provide a lot of nastiness to a defense that is already full of it.” – Grade: A

Seahawks – Simon, Tharold – CB – 6’2″ – 202 – LSU – 70.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A tall corner? For Seattle? Consider me shocked! Simon is a perfect fit for the Seahawks defense. I think it’s a reach and he has some off-the-field concerns, but it isn’t a surprising selection.” – Grade: B

.
Colts – Hughes, Montori – DT – 6’4″ – 329 – Tennessee-Martin – 68.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “An absolute physical specimen for a nose tackle prospect. There aren’t many people at his size and his athleticism in this draft class. If his effort level is what it should be, he could start by year two and rotate in right away.” – Grade: B+

Broncos – Smith, Quanterus – DE – 6’5″ – 250 – Western Kentucky – 75.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Fantastic, athletic edge-rusher, who is a long-term upside pick for a team that needs more help on the edge. The Broncos will have some time to bring him around.” – Grade: B

.
Falcons – Maponga, Stansly – DE – 6’2″ – 256 – TCU – 68.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another high-upside pass-rusher for the Falcons. Maponga is a good athlete who needs a lot of polish before he contributes at the NFL level. Had a lot of high-impact plays at college and loves to strip the football from ball-carriers.” – Grade: B-

Redskins – Thompson, Chris – RB – 5’7″ – 192 – Florida St. – 52.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Not a fan of Thompson, but I’m not going to argue with the Shanahans taking a mid-round back. He has injury issues and may be a long-term project as a scatback.” – Grade: C+

Vikings – Locke, Jeff – P – 6’0″ – 209 – UCLA – #
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Don’t know why the Vikings need a punter with Chris Kluwe around, and Locke wasn’t even my highest-ranked punter (although I know some who had him above LSU’s Brad Wing). Seems like a wasted pick.” – Grade: D+

Bengals – Hawkinson, Tanner – OT- 6’5″- 298- Kansas- 54.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “”Hawk” is a great athlete and will have time to develop in Cincinnati. I had him a couple rounds later, but this is an upside selection.” – Grade: B-

49ers – Dial, Quinton – DE – 6’5″ – 318 – Alabama – 55.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a potential replacement for Justin Smith down the road. Dial is very athletic but underwhelmed at times with so much talent around him at Alabama. He’ll have the same amount of talent around him in San Francisco.” – Grade: C+

Seahawks – Willson, Luke – TE – 6’5″ – 251 – Rice – 56.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Willson is a great athlete and would’ve been a top combine performer had he been invited. Rice has a history of producing good multifaceted tight ends, and Willson should have some upside down the road. Not sure I would’ve drafted him, however, let alone in the fifth.” – Grade: D

Packers – Hyde, Micah – S – 6’0″ – 197 – Iowa – 61.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “High-character guy with positional flexibility. He’ll end up contributing to the Green Bay Packers defense, but may always be a backup because the athleticism isn’t there.” – Grade: B-

Broncos – King, Tavarres – WR- 6’0″- 189- Georgia- 69.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I like King as a prospect. He has the quickness to be a slot receiver at the next level with a little more consistent quarterbacking. Will have an uphill climb on that roster.” – Grade: C+

.
Redskins – Jenkins, Brandon – DE – 6’2″ – 251 – Florida St. – 82.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A great athlete with some health and production issues. So, pretty much what we’ve come to expect out of a Florida State defender. In a few years, he could make in impact. The Redskins are doing a good job adding potential playmakers, but not sure they’ll help much in 2013.” – Grade: B-

.
Packers – Boyd, Josh – DT – 6’3″ – 310 – Mississippi St. – 69.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A good nose tackle in college, but probably doesn’t have the size to play there at the next level. The Packers love movable pieces on their front, and Boyd has good talent.” – Grade: B

.
Ravens – Wagner, Ricky – OT – 6’6″ – 308 – Wisconsin – 69.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A great right tackle prospect. He’ll allow Kelechi Osemele to play guard and fits in the Ravens’ physical style of play. Love this pick and wouldn’t be surprised if he starts in his rookie year.” – Grade: A

.
ROUND 6

.
Broncos – Painter, Vinston – OT – 6’4″ – 306 – Virginia Tech – 51.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I don’t see Painter as a starter, but he can be down the road because of his athleticism. He’s actually a converted defensive tackle and could be a late-round gem if the Broncos have some patience with him.” – Grade: C+

Texans – Quessenberry, David – OT – 6’5″ – 302 – San Jose St. – 69.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A good but not great lineman who can play a few different positions. He passes the look test and has enough athleticism to succeed in the Texans’ zone-blocking scheme.” – Grade: B-

49ers – Moody, Nick – LB – 6’1″ – 236 – Florida St. – 50.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Played linebacker in college but has some snaps at safety as well. I think he’ll be a long-term special teamer and a backup in the defensive backfield.” – Grade: C

Bengals – Burkhead, Rex – RB – 5’10″ – 214 – Nebraska – 56.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Will probably be used as a fullback in Cincinnati and has good enough hands to help Andy Dalton as a security blanket. A productive runner, he could also see time in the backfield if BenJarvus Green-Ellis goes down.” – Grade: B

Redskins – Rambo, Bacarri – S – 6’0″ – 211 – Georgia – 61.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Good in-the-box safety against the pass game, but he is inconsistent against the run and launches himself, often missing tackles against stronger ball-carriers. He’ll be good depth and a core special teams player.” – Grade: B-

Colts – Boyett, John – S – 5’10″ – 204 – Oregon – 67.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Didn’t play much in 2012 thanks to a knee injury, but was incredibly productive in the previous years in Eugene. Was the Ducks’ leading tackler in 2011.” – Grade: C

Packers – Palmer, Nate – LB – 6’3″ – 240 – Illinois St. – 54.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Talented pass-rusher as a linebacker and even tried out as defensive end for a few teams. Had visited the Packers earlier this year.” – Grade: C+

Seahawks – Ware, Spencer – RB – 5’10″ – 228 – LSU – 59.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Fringe draftable grade on my board, but I have no idea how he sees the field on anything other than covering kicks.” – Grade: D

Texans – Bonner, Alan – WR – 5’10″ – 193 – Jacksonville St. – 50.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Productive receiver from a small school who may stick as a slot receiver. Don’t see him on the roster in three years, however.” – Grade: D

Vikings – Baca, Jeff – OG – 6’3″ – 302 – UCLA – 59.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A natural football player, Baca needs to spend more time in the weight room and on the practice field before he’s even a depth player for the Vikings.” – Grade: C-

Bengals – Hamilton, Cobi – WR – 6’2″ – 212 – Arkansas – 72.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Big-bodied receiver who has the skills to get deep but lacks elite speed. He’ll be a fourth or fifth wide receiver depending on their skill grouping.” – Grade: B-

Texans – Jones, Chris – DT – 6’2″ – 302 – Bowling Green – 55.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Will get a lot of sacks and tackles on pure effort, but he doesn’t have a lot of size or athleticism. Jones will provide good depth as a 3-4 DE.” – Grade: C-

Ravens – Lewis-Moore, Kapron – DE – 6’4″ – 298 – Notre Dame – 55.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Didn’t have a draftable grade because of a recent ACL injury. He’ll be a good player down the road, but he may need to be on the IR for his entire rookie season.” – Grade: C-

Texans – Griffin, Ryan – TE – 6’6″ – 247 – Connecticut – 51.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great hands, but isn’t going to start at tight end because he’s too slight to block. The Texans have a lot of players like Griffin, so he may struggle to find snaps.” – Grade: C

Ravens – Jensen, Ryan – OT – 6’3″ – 317 – Colorado State-Pueblo – 63.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I had a Round 6-7 grade on Jensen, so this is a perfect landing spot for him. He fits as a backup right tackle, but could find some snaps at guard as well.” – Grade: B-

.
ROUND 7

.
Vikings – Mauti, Michael – LB – 6’2″ – 243 – Penn St. – 71.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Excellent pick, as Mauti could end up as the starting MLB two or three years down the road. Injuries could keep him down through his pro career, but a great talent when he’s healthy.” – Grade: A

Vikings – Bond, Travis – OG – 6’6″ – 329 – North Carolina – 54.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Road grading offensive guard that fits the Vikings’ offensive system. This is another value pick and a great fit.” – Grade: B+

Packers – Johnson, Charles – WR – 6’2″ – 215 – Grand Valley St. – 50.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A big receiver (6’2″ 215) with good over-the-shoulder catching. Was very productive at a small level. Great upside, but it’s a numbers game on that Packers roster.” – Grade: B

Seahawks – Seymour, Ryan – G – 6’5″ – 300 – Vanderbilt – 50.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Productive lineman who played both guard and center for Vandy, he’ll end up as a long-term backup in the NFL.” – Grade: C+

Packers – Dorsey, Kevin – WR – 6’3″ – 210 – Maryland – 50.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Big receiver with great hands. Dorsey didn’t have a draftable grade, but this is the kind of time where teams like the Packers just need to make sure that they don’t let their targets get to free agency.” – Grade: C-

Patriots – Buchanan, Michael – DE – 6’5″ – 255 – Illinois – 69.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Terrific value for a team that can seriously use more pass-rushes. Buchanan was one of my favorite players at the Senior Bowl and I could see him contributing very quickly for the Patriots.” – Grade: A

Redskins – Jamison, Jawan – RB – 5’7″ – 203 – Rutgers – 71.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A good fit for the Redskins because of his one-cut running ability. He’s short, but not a very shifty runner.” – Grade: B-

Vikings – Dawkins, Everett – DT – 6’2″ – 292 – Florida St. – 71.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great athlete but a marginal player because Dawkins plays with little-to-no instincts. This is a great upside pick for a seventh rounder.” – Grade: A-

Colts – Williams, Kerwynn – RB – 5’8″ – 195 – Utah St. – 56.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Short back, but thickly built, Williams reminds me of a poor man’s Ray Rice. Very productive and could see some burn this season for the Colts.” – Grade: B+

Seahawks – Powell, Ty – DE – 6’2″ – 249 – Harding – 68.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is incredible value and fit for a player who played at all three levels of the defense in college. Freakish athlete who could end up as a top player wherever the Seahawks play him.” – Grade: A-

Packers – Barrington, Sam – LB – 6’1″ – 246 – South Florida – 53.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Didn’t have a draftable grade on Barrington and I think he’s a better fit in a 4-3. Decent pass rusher and very athletic but better in pursuit and against the run.” – Grade: C+

Broncos – Dysert, Zac – QB – 6’3″ – 231 – Miami (OH) – 83.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Awesome value here for Dysert. Needs a ton of polish with his footwork, but he offers as much upside as Brock Osweiler. It will be a great competition once Peyton Manning retires.” – Grade: A-

Patriots – Beauharnais, Steve – LB – 6’1″ – 240 – Rutgers – 60.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “An average athlete, but a better linebacker—Beauharnais will fit in New England because he can play SLB in their 4-3 and ILB in their 3-4. Love him downhill against the run.” – Grade: B+

49ers – Daniels, B.J. – QB – 6’0″ – 217 – South Florida – 50.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Not a very talented passer, but room to grow with an above-average arm. He’ll probably have to cut his teeth as a practice squad player, but he works as a back up to Colin Kaepernick.” – Grade: D+

Ravens – Mellette, Aaron – WR – 6’2″ – 217 – Elon – 61.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Mellette has a great body control and decent hands but needs more speed and route-running polish before he’s a productive player.” – Grade: C-

Bengaks- Fragel, Reid – OT – 6’8″ – 308 – Ohio St. – 77.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another athletic lineman and a player who easily could have gone two or three rounds higher. Fragel will be a great player in two or three years and could end up as the right tackle of the future.” – Grade: A-

Seahawks- Smith, Jared – DT – 6’3″ – 302 – New Hampshire – 52.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another big lineman, Smith didn’t have a draftable grade on my board because he’s a below average athlete. Still, he’s got a lot of hustle that could easily keep him on the edge of an NFL roster as he acclimates to the NFL.” – Grade: C+

Seahawks- Bowie, Michael – OT – 6’5″ – 330 – NE Oklahoma St. – 50.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a developmental right tackle pick who was an D2 Honorable Mention All-American. He played well at the Raycom All-Star Classic.” – Grade: B-

Falcons- Ishmael, Kemal – DB – 5’11″ – 206 – Central Florida – 50.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Central Florida’s all-time leading tackler, I could see Ismael as a core special teamer for a long time.” – Grade: C+

Falcons- Motta, Zeke – S – 6’2″ – 213 – Notre Dame – 71.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Motta is an underrated prospect and a typical Falcons high-character pick. Don’t see him as being more than a special teamer because he doesn’t have NFL athleticism.” – Grade: C

49ers- Bykowski, Carter – OT – 6’6″ – 306 – Iowa St. – #
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A lumberer, Bykowski is a right tackle only. I expected him to be a big target in undrafted free agency because he’s a tough player with strong hands.” – Grade: B+

Ravens- Anthony, Marc – CB – 5’11″ – 196 – California – 68.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A great nickleback prospect, I’m surprised Anthony wasn’t drafted in the fifth round. He’ll see the field on special teams this year and in subpackages starting in 2013.” – Grade: A-

Falcons- Renfree, Sean – QB – 6’3″ – 219 – Duke – 52.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is excellent value and I had a sixth-round grade on the David Cutcliffe-trained prospect. He and Connor Vernon set all sorts of records at Duke and Renfree should step up as a No. 2 QB for the Falcons.” – Grade: A-

Bengaks- Johnson, T.J. – C – 6’4″ – 310 – South Carolina – 59.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “ohnson was one of my last players with a draftable grade. Johnson is a smart player but doesn’t always play with that intelligence. He has the ability to make line calls, but his footwork and hand placement need a lot of work.” – Grade: B+

49ers- Cooper, Marcus – CB – 6’2″ – 192 – Rutgers – 50.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another Rutgers corner with a bunch of size, Cooper has enough talent to play down the road, but needs to work on his balance in and out of his breaks. He could play safety as well.” – Grade: B-

Colts- Cunningham, Justice – TE – 6’3″ – 258 – South Carolina – 63.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Cunningham is a good fit for Mr. Irrelevant and could see some time as a third tight end for the Indianapolis Colts because he is such a great blocker.” – Grade: B+

ROUND 2

.
Jaguars – Cyprien, John – FS – 6’0″ – 217 – Florida International – 90.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great opening pick for the Jaguars as they get a big, strong and physical safety to set the tone for their defense. I question if Cyprien will be great in deep coverage at the next level, because it is not something he’s done a lot of in college. However, he’s got the athleticism to be fantastic in that regard. In the box, though, he’s the best safety in the draft.” – Grade: A

Titans – Hunter, Justin – WR – 6’4″ – 196 – Tennessee – 81.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I’ve been pumping the need for another receiver in Tennessee for a while, and it’s shaping up to be a fantastic draft for Jake Locker who needs some assistance on the offensive side of the ball. Now, with Chance Warmack and Andy Levitre on the interior and Hunter joining Kendall Wright on the outside, the Titans should be able to do a lot more than just run Chris Johnson to death.” – Grade: A-

Eagles – Ertz, Zach – TE – 6’5″ – 249 – Stanford – 82.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Awesome fit for Ertz in Chip Kelly’s offense! He’s a sub-par blocker, but on the move, Ertz might be the best pure matchup threat in this draft class. He’ll be able to bust the seam and give extra room for the receivers on the outside. He doesn’t really replace Brent Celek, but is a fantastic complement that will see a lot of targets.” – Grade: A

Lions – Slay, Darius – CB – 6’0″ – 192 – Mississippi St. – 71.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Huge reach for the Lions and it’s not even at a position that is their greatest need. Slay steps in as the No. 2 cornerback on the roster and is a tall, lean prospect who isn’t going to be able to press as much as the Lions would like. Fantastic athlete, but needs to be a much better football player to prove he’s anything other than a huge reach at the top of Round 2.” – Grade: B-

Bengals – Bernard, Giovani – RB – 5’8″ – 202 – North Carolina – 84.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Bernard is a great complement to Benjarvus Green-Ellis who is a tough runner while Bernard has great vision and fantastic quicks in the open field. He’ll join Tyler Eifert (their first-round pick) in giving the Bengals a much more dynamic offense in 2013. Eddie Lacy is the better back in my opinion. Johnathan Franklin might be better as well, but Bernard is a great fit for the Bengals.” – Grade: B+

Chargers – Te’o, Manti – LB – 6’1″ – 241 – Notre Dame – 87.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Solid pick for the Chargers, though I’m not sure it was necessary to trade up to get him with other talented linebackers still on the board (Kevin Minter from LSU, for example). Te’o has limited upside in the NFL, but can be very good with his football intelligence and his quick reaction time. The steps he loses in terms of athleticism, he makes up for diagnosing plays quicker than anyone in this class.” – Grade: A-

Jets – Smith, Geno – QB – 6’2″ – 218 – West Virginia – 88.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “EJ Manuel might have more raw physical tools, but Geno Smith is the best quarterback in this draft class. The Jets should immediately start accepting low-ball offers for the rest of the QBs on their roster, because this is their franchise passer for the next decade. He offers more athleticism, arm strength and accuracy than Mark Sanchez and is a fantastic fit for a short-range, timing offense.” – Grade: A+

49ers – Carradine, Cornellius – DE – 6’4″ – 276 – Florida St. – 85.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The 49ers need another pass-rusher and Tank Carradine is a great addition. While he’ll spend a lot of time out on the edge, he can also put his hand down in the 3-4 as a rotational player on passing downs. He was the best pure pass-rusher on the board and is going to look great as a piece to that Pro Bowl-player-laden defense.” – Grade: A

Bills – Woods, Robert – WR – 6’0″ – 201 – USC – 83.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Woods is a prototypical high-end No. 2 receiver with good (but not great) hands, and the ability to take over games—although, had he done so more often at USC, he’d have gone last night. The fit is great next to Stevie Johnson in an offense that is going to look to get vertical early and often.” – Grade: A

Raiders – Watson, Menelik – OT – 6’5″ – 310 – Florida St. – 85.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Watson was the best offensive tackle left on a lot of boards and gives the Raiders a lot of flexibility on their offensive line. Look for them to keep Jared Veldheer at left tackle until Watson is healthy and eventually play the two side-by-side for a great blindside tandem.” – Grade: A

Buccaneers – Banks, Johnthan – CB – 6’2″ – 185 – Mississippi St. – 84.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I think there are better uses for a first pick than a No. 2 cornerback, but the Buccaneers clearly wanted to upgrade their defensive backfield this season. This pick moves Eric Wright to his rightful role in subpackages and gives the Buccaneers a lot more freedom to blitz and manufacture some pressure on opposing quarterbacks in the NFC South.” – Grade: A-

Panthers – Short, Kawann – DT – 6’3″ – 299 – Purdue – 80.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Wow, some Panthers fans might not be happy with doubling down on defensive tackles, but this is a great pickup and a fantastic fit next to Star Lotulelei. Luke Kuechly is a happy man this evening as he’ll have room to maneuver with two stud tackles in front of him. In a division with so much offensive talent, this is a defining pickup for the Panthers.” – Grade: A

Cardinals – Minter, Kevin – LB – 6’0″ – 246 – LSU – 84.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great value and fit for the draft’s best interior linebacker. I question the need, however, as the Cardinals’ defense wasn’t the problem last season. This is a best player available pick and he should be good, so I’m not criticizing too much. Yet, the grade is a little lower than perfect because there were other needs to be filled.” – Grade: A-

Bills – Alonso, Kiko – LB- 6’3″- 238- Oregon- 67.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a high-upside pick with plenty of room to be a huge bust. Mostly a blitzer up the middle, Alonso will look great behind that Bills defensive line and give quarterbacks something to worry about when they step up in the pocket.” – Grade: A-

Cowboys – Escobar, Gavin – TE – 6’6″ – 254 – San Diego St. – 79.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Escobar is going to be a great weapon in the Cowboys offense, but Jerry Jones needs to be removed from the room before Tony Romo finds a sharp object. How does anyone expect Romo to deliver the ball to these weapons with zero interior blocking – save a huge reach at center – and a right tackle that consistently does a great turnstile impression?” – Grade: B

Steelers – Bell, Le’Veon – RB – 6’1″ – 230 – Michigan St. – 71.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This would be a terrible pick if not for the need and the fit in the Steelers’ physical offense. The Steelers needed a back, and Bell fits their physical style. Still, he’s not even close to the best back on the board and this will probably be a pick they end up regretting.” – Grade: B

Giants – Hankins, Johnathan – DT – 6’3″ – 320 – Ohio St. – 83.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Love this pick for the Giants as they struggled to get pressure up the middle last season. On a defense that is predicated around pressure, that’s a huge reason they weren’t able to get back to the playoffs. Hankins will provide pocket-collapsing pressure up the middle and allow the ends to be a lot more productive.” – Grade: A

Bears – Bostic, Jon – LB – 6’1″ – 245 – Florida – 62.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is Brian Urlacher’s replacement? He’s not going to make anyone forget about Urlacher, but he’ll be a terrific run-stopper in the middle of the Bears defense and is a clear sign that the middle linebacker in Chicago won’t spend as much time in coverage as the position used to.” – Grade: B+

Redskins – Amerson, David – CB – 6’1″ – 205 – N.C. State – 74.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “After trading up for Robert Griffin III last year, the Redskins defense was a year behind and needs to add a bunch of talent on every level if they want to keep up with the trajectory of their offense. Amerson is a reach in my opinion, but he’s a prospect the Redskins know well who can be a huge steal if he plays like he did in 2011. His 2012 tape, however, says that he should’ve gone a round later.” – Grade: A-

Patriots – Collins, Jamie – LB – 6’3″ – 250 – Southern Miss – 68.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This pick makes a lot of sense for the Patriots, and Collins is a player I really like. He fits their hybrid scheme and will play both end and outside linebacker. He’ll help the Patriots’ pass rush almost immediately.” – Grade: A

Bengals – Hunt, Margus – DE – 6’8″ – 277 – SMU – 75.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Bengals already have a great front-four and could’ve used this pick on a number of defensive back prospects. Instead, they get a player without a real position in their defense who will need to find either a great weight-gain plan to become an interior rusher or learn to get lower as he rushes around the edge.” – Grade: B-

Dolphins – Taylor, Jamar – CB – 5’11″ – 192 – Boise St. – 85.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Dolphins needed another cornerback after Sean Smith left, and Taylor had a higher grade on my board than Desmond Trufant or Johnathan Banks. He’s physical, athletic and has great ball skills. He’s been one of my favorite players since the Senior Bowl, and Dolphins fans will learn to love him as well.” – Grade: A

49ers – McDonald, Vance – TE – 6’4″ – 267 – Rice – 76.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “A No. 2 tight end might seem like a bit of a luxury, but the 49ers love the dual-tight end set and lost Delanie Walker this offseason. While many projected Zach Ertz to the Niners earlier, McDonald is the better blocker and more of an H-back who can line up at multiple positions. Great pick.” – Grade: B+

Ravens – Brown, Arthur – LB – 6’0″ – 241 – Kansas St. – 90.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Wow, the rich get richer! This is a great player to take over for Ray Lewis and a player who fell down draft boards for really no good reason—much like Lewis did when they drafted him. This is terrific value, and he already looks great in purple.” – Grade: A+

Texans – Swearinger, D.J. – S – 5’10″ – 208 – South Carolina – 81.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is the Texans’ starting strong safety in 2014 and beyond as Ed Reed continues to decline. Until then, this is a great depth pick and Swearinger will probably end up playing in nickle and dime packages – as well as on special teams.” – Grade: A-

Broncos – Ball, Montee – RB – 5’10″ – 214 – Wisconsin – 75.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Broncos needed a bell cow this offseason and Ball is a true workhorse. (Mixed zoological metaphors for the win!) Ball won’t see a ton of carries in the Peyton Manning-led offense, but when Ball gets the ball, he’ll deliver.” – Grade: A

Patriots – Dobson, Aaron – WR – 6’3″ – 210 – Marshall – 71.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Dobson isn’t the highest receiver left on my board, but this is a terrific pick. It’s also one I’ve made for the Patriots in quite a few mocks. Dobson is a great down-the-field receiver and has great hands and body control. He’ll become what Brandon Lloyd was supposed to be.” – Grade: A

Falcons – Alford, Robert – CB – 5’10″ – 188 – Southeastern Louisiana – 81.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Falcons draft board must have been someone’s defensive back rankings, because they’re adamant at shoring it up at all costs. Alford is a solid player with decent upside. He won’t start until 2014 (if then), and the Falcons have bigger needs. Still, love the player and his ball skills.” – Grade: A-

Packers – Lacy, Eddie – RB – 5’11″ – 231 – Alabama – 82.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Packers will never ask Lacy to carry the ball as much as Nick Saban did, and the only reason Lacy fell is because teams were worried he had already worn too much tread off of his tires. This is a great value as I had this exact pick in my last mock draft… in the first round.” – Grade: A+

Seahawks – Michael, Christine – RB – 5’10″ – 220 – Texas A&M – 71.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Can’t believe Johnathan Franklin wasn’t the pick here if it was going to be a back. Also, this shouldn’t have been a back. With Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin, adding a speedster might be intriguing, but the Seahawks have much bigger needs on offense. The redeeming quality here is that Michael is a great fit in the zone-blocking scheme. Otherwise, I wouldn’t want any part of him. He has poor vision and will often grab big chunks of yardage in one play, but run into tackles the rest of his carries.” – Grade: C+

.
ROUND 3

.
Chiefs – Kelce, Travis – TE – 6’5″ – 255 – Cincinnati – 80.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a pick I’ve had mocked to the Chiefs at the end of the third round, but it works here because tight ends went off the board a little earlier than expected. Honestly, the only reason Kelce wasn’t drafted higher is because of off-the-field issues. He reminds me of Brent Celek who played under Andy Reid in Philadelphia.” – Grade: A-

Jaguars – Gratz, Dwayne – CB – 5’11″ – 201 – Connecticut – 62.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “There’s no mystery here about what the Jacksonville Jaguars are trying to do. Another big, strong defensive back to help emulate what the Seattle Seahawks have built under Pete Carroll. The scheme is set and the fit is fantastic. Gratz picked up steam after the combine and it’s no surprise the Jaguars coveted him. Things are looking up in Northern Florida.” – Grade: A

Lions – Warford, Larry – OG – 6’3″ – 332 – Kentucky – 88.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great pickup for the Lions as many considered this a possible target for a round earlier. Warford shines on tape, but opened a lot of eyes at the Senior Bowl when he was one of the most agile offensive linemen and did extremely well throughout the week. He’ll step right in at RG and start from day one.” – Grade: A

Raiders – Moore, Sio – LB – 6’1″ – 245 – Connecticut – 68.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Moore will provide a huge upgrade to the Raiders pass rush from the linebacker position. He’ll need some help over the top in coverage and is a work-in-progress against the run, but in terms of pressuring the quarterbacks of the AFC West, this is a great selection.” – Grade: A

Eagles – Logan, Bennie – DT – 6’2″ – 309 – LSU – 78.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I know a lot of media analysts that had Logan higher than I did, but I think this is a serious reach for the Eagles. As they switch to a 3-4 defense, however, this is a great fit. Logan can play both nose tackle and defensive end.” – Grade: B

Browns – McFadden, Leon – CB – 5’10″ – 193 – San Diego St. – 80.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Good pick for the Browns who need a corner opposite Joe Haden pretty badly. Along with Barkevious Mingo from the first round, McFadden will help shore up a Browns defense that was already taking big strides last year and had a good free agency period. McFadden will also likely return kicks.” – Grade: B+

Cardinals – Mathieu, Tyrann – CB – 5’9″ – 186 – LSU – 73.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “You play to win your division and the Cardinals just got a great player to track down the newest St. Louis Rams weapon – Tavon Austin. Mathieu is a nickle corner. He will not be anything more than that. Yet, in an NFL that utilizes a slot receiver more and more, Mathieu might as well be considered a starter. If he keeps his nose clean, he can be great.” – Grade: A-

Titans – Wreh-Wilson, Blidi – CB – 6’1″ – 195 – Connecticut – 77.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Titans didn’t desperately need a corner, but with the additions they’ve made on the offensive side of the ball already in this draft, a depth pick on defense is understandable. Wreh-Wilson had a third-round grade on my board. He’s tall and has great skills in zone coverage.” – Grade: A-

Rams – McDonald, T.J. – FS – 6’2″ – 219 – USC – 66.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “While Rams fans likely wanted a safety earlier, McDonald is a great pick here. Jeff Fisher will send him heading downhill where McDonald is a vicious hitter. He’s a little stiff in coverage, but he’s a perfect in-the-box safety for a team with lots of good ball skills in the secondary.” – Grade: A

Jets – Winters, Brian – OG – 6’4″ – 320 – Kent St. – 71.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Winters isn’t one of my favorite players in the draft, but after Warford he was the best guard available and the Jets need some help on the right side of the line. They’ll look to run early and often behind Winters who should step in as a starter right away at either guard or possibly tackle.” – Grade: A-

Buccaneers – Glennon, Mike – QB – 6’7″ – 225 – N.C. State – 79.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Glennon will get his shot to compete with Josh Freeman who lives in Greg Schiano’s doghouse. There is a bunch of offensive talent and Glennon has the arm (if not the decision making or accuracy) to make big plays.” – Grade: B+

Cowboys – Williams, Terrance – WR – 6’2″ – 208 – Baylor – 83.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Seriously, Jerry Jones? Stop. Just stop. This is a terrible pick on a team with so many offensive weapons already. It’s proof that Jones shouldn’t be scouting tape and he certainly shouldn’t be making personnel decisions. Get a real lineman – one that you’re not reaching two rounds for. Williams is going to get lost in the shuffle as the Cowboys’ third (or fourth) receiver.” – Grade: C-

Saints – Armstead, Terron – OT – 6’5″ – 306 – Arkansas-Pine Bluff – 84.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This wasn’t a need pick for the Saints who are OK at left tackle, but Armstead could easily overtake Charles Brown by 2014. He’s a freak athlete who should be a plus pass-protector at the next level. He dominated everything in the pre-draft process – a must for small-school prospects.” – Grade: A-

Chargers – Allen, Keenan – WR – 6’2″ – 206 – California – 86.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Huge pick for the Chargers as they get a position they need with a player who had a fringe first-round grade on a lot of people’s boards. On my personal list, he was my top wideout. He fell because of some lingering injury issues, but when healthy, he can be a stud in this offense. He’s a possession receiver with enough ball skills to still be a great target downfield.” – Grade: A

Dolphins – Thomas, Dallas – OT – 6’5″ – 300 – Tennessee – 82.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Dolphins certainly needed a lineman in this draft, but I’m worried that Thomas is too slow-footed and too much of a tweener to really separate himself from the pack. At best, he could start for the Dolphins by 2014 at either guard or tackle. At worst, he’s an NFL journeyman who will consistently be a liability.” – Grade: B+

Bills – Goodwin, Marquise – WR – 5’9″ – 183 – Texas – 68.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Love Marquise Goodwin as a prospect because he’s not just a deep threat with his speed. While that’s really all he did at Texas other than a bunch of designed runs, he has the polish to run a decent crossing route and can leave defenders in his dust once the ball is in his hands. Adding a player with Goodwin’s speed was a luxury after taking Robert Woods, but this offense should be fun to watch in 2014 and beyond.” – Grade: B+

Steelers – Wheaton, Markus – WR – 5’11″ – 189 – Oregon St. – 81.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I had WR as a need for the Steelers and a second-round grade on Wheaton. This is a great pick and he fits with the receiver pieces the Steelers already have. While Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown head deep, Wheaton should dominate the middle of the field. He’ll start over one of those two sooner rather than later.” – Grade: A

Cowboys – Wilcox, J.J. – FS – 6’0″ – 213 – Georgia Southern – 77.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “OK, I’ve been ragging on Jerry Jones, but this is a solid pick—if a bit of a reach. Wilcox has the athleticism (but not the acquired skills) to cover the deep middle and is extremely physical. He shined during Senior Bowl practices and has a lot of upside. Will not be an immediate impact player, however.” – Grade: B+

Giants – Moore, Damontre – DE – 6’4″ – 250 – Texas A&M – 87.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Oh, look… another pass-rusher for the New York Giants. Like I said with their last selection, they couldn’t get as much pressure as they wanted last season, so this is an understandable pick on a team that has the time to bring Moore along slowly and plenty of mentors to teach him the finer points of pass-rushing.” – Grade: A

Saints – Jenkins, John – DT – 6’4″ – 346 – Georgia – 81.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “One of my favorite picks of Day 2. This is the starting nose tackle for the Saints new 3-4 – possibly for the next decade. As the pivot point, Jenkins is going to make life a lot easier for just about everyone on the Saints defense.” – Grade: A

Patriots – Ryan, Logan – CB – 5’11″ – 191 – Rutgers – 69.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Patriots need depth at cornerback and Ryan has the potential to become a starter for them down the road. As a tall, physical player, Bill Belichick may be tempted to move him to safety.” – Grade: B+

Bengals – Williams, Shawn – S – 6’0″ – 213 – Georgia – 74.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “It’s a really deep safety class and the Bengals reached for a player I wouldn’t have touched for another round or more. I don’t think he cracks the starting lineup and will have to contribute on special teams early on.” – Grade: B

Redskins – Reed, Jordan – TE – 6’2″ – 236 – Florida – 80.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Don’t understand this pick for the Redskins as tight end might never be a focal point for their offense and Logan Paulsen was more-than-adequate with Fred Davis sidelined. It fits, because Reed is a lot like Davis as a matchup threat, but I don’t see him getting a lot of burn in Washington. They had much bigger needs. ” – Grade: B-

Colts – Thornton, Hugh – OG – 6’3″ – 320 – Illinois – 67.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Colts need a lot of offensive line help, and this is a good fit. While I think this is a really big reach, Thornton has more value for zone-blocking teams and should be able to play sooner rather than later because of the fit.” – Grade: B+

Seahawks – Hill, Jordan – DT – 6’1″ – 303 – Penn St. – 64.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Good pick here for the Seahawks as they look to rotate heavily with flexible pieces along the defensive line. Hill has enough talent that he could easily start as the 1-Tech tackle early on in his career.” – Grade: B+

49ers – Lemonier, Corey – DE – 6’3″ – 255 – Auburn – 71.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Complete luxury pick so the grade drops even though I’m a huge fan of the selection. The 49ers traded up to get another fantastic pass-rusher who can rotate in and put a ton of pressure on the NFC West passers. The Niners are having one of the best drafts this year.” – Grade: B+

Texans – Williams, Brennan – OT – 6’6″ – 318 – North Carolina – 71.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “It’s a complete reach, but this is probably the right tackle of the future for the Texans. Great fit in the zone-blocking scheme and he has enough athletic upside to be that guy in year two.” – Grade: B+

Broncos – Webster, Kayvon – CB – 5’10″ – 195 – South Florida – 52.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a pretty big reach for an athletic defensive back prospect who may or may not start at any point in his career. I had a draftable grade on Webster, but as a long-term backup. He has the athletic tools, and one can see how cut he is, but he’s not beating out Rahim Moore or any of the cornerbacks.” – Grade: C

Patriots – Harmon, Duron – S – 6’1″ – 200 – Rutgers – 50.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Of course New England was going to take a defensive back that most of us have never heard of. Harmon has good size and can run, but they could’ve gotten him rounds later – if not after the draft.” – Grade: D+

Rams – Bailey, Stedman – WR – 5’10″ – 193 – West Virginia – 79.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey? I’m now a St. Louis Rams fan. Great pick and Sam Bradford is going to have a lot of fun getting the ball to these two in the open field.” – Grade: A-

Dolphins – Davis, Will – CB – 5’11″ – 186 – Utah St. – 71.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This pick has all the markings of a player that the Dolphins were thinking about with an earlier pick and were surprised he was falling. I have a fringe-starter grade on Davis, but he’s a good press-corner and physical like the Dolphins like. It’s a great landing spot.” – Grade: B

Ravens – Williams, Brandon – DT – 6’1″ – 335 – Missouri Southern St. – 73.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Another amazing pick for Ozzie Newsome, grabbing a player that introduced himself to the world at the Senior Bowl. Williams sent hundreds of media and scouts back to look for tape on him. He’s a classic one-gapper and will rotate in on the Ravens’ defensive line until he grows into the NFL starter he’s capable of being.” – Grade: A-

Texans – Montgomery, Sam – DE – 6’3″ – 262 – LSU – 71.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Texans need to get more pass-rushers aside from J.J. Watt, and Montgomery has as much upside as anyone on the board. He’ll need to be pushed, but there are plenty of great mentors on that Texans team. This is a best-case scenario for his landing spot.” – Grade: A-

Chiefs – Davis, Knile – RB – 5’10″ – 227 – Arkansas – 60.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Yeesh…I had Davis as a Round 7 target because his injury history is so extensive that it is a risk to take him much earlier. If healthy, he can contribute, but the Chiefs have a bunch of other needs and could’ve gotten a productive backup runner that wasn’t such a gamble later.” – Grade: C+

Titans – Gooden, Zaviar – LB – 6’1″ – 234 – Missouri – 70.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I had a third-round grade on Gooden who fits the Titans as a weak-side linebacker. Since they already have Zach Brown, this is a bit of a duplication. However, Gooden can back up a number of linebacker positions and be a great special teamer. Love the player – good depth pick.” – Grade: B+

2013 NFL Draft Picks – Round 1

Chiefs – Fisher, Eric – OT – 6’7″ – 306 – CMU – 94.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I’ve been a big fan of Eric Fisher’s since the Senior Bowl when he consistently dominated the elite pass-rushers that he didn’t often face at Central Michigan. The Chiefs take a slight hit here because the need isn’t real big and Branden Albert will likely need to be dealt or Fisher will end up playing right tackle – a no-no for a first-overall pick. The value gets a tiny hit here as well because Luke Joeckel (OT Texas A&M) is the better player right now and Fisher was selected as the better athlete. Still as long as Albert brings back picks and Fisher matures as a player like the Chiefs hope he can be, this could be a franchise-defining pick for Kansas City.” – Grade: B+

Jaguars – Joeckel, Luke – OT – 6’6″ – 306 – Texas A&M – 95.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Thanks to the Chiefs going another direction, the Jaguars get the best overall player on a lot of people’s draft boards. The need is a hit here as well because Eugene Monroe is a great player (one of the best on the Jaguars’ roster). Still, the value is just too good to pass up and when the top player falls to a team as talent-bereft as the Jaguars, they had to make the pick.” – Grade: A-

Dolphins – Jordon, Dion – DE – 6’6″ – 248 – Oregon – 93.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Huge trade up and pick here for the Miami Dolphins as they move up in front of the Philadelphia Eagles to grab Dion Jordan just before his college coach could grab him. Jordan can play either DE or OLB for the Dolphins, but I suspect he’ll play the latter. His skills in coverage will be a huge asset for Miami and give a huge boost to its defense. He’s not the best player on the board, but he’s going to make a big impact in South Beach.” – Grade: A

Eagles – Johnson, Lane – OT – 6’6″ – 303 – Oklahoma – 92.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Awesome fit for the Eagles as Lane Johnson fits as well as anyone in Chip Kelly’s high-tempo offense. He’s not a dominant run-blocker, but he’ll be able to roll out and stay in front of Michael Vick. As a former skill position player, he’s used to running quite a bit and won’t slow down as Kelly pushes the tempo. The need isn’t necessarily big, however, as the tackles weren’t the problem in Philadelphia – at least, while Jason Peters was healthy.” – Grade: B+

Lions – Ansah, Ezekiel – DE – 6.5″ – 271 – BYU – 93.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a big pick for the Lions, though he’s not the best player on the board and the Lions had to have wanted one of those top tackles to fall to them. While some might be surprised that they didn’t go cornerback here, they are absolutely bare at defensive end where Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch played last season. Ansah is a boom or bust pick, but he’ll be a great fit in the Lions Wide-9 scheme and has a couple of great defensive line coaches to help him along.” – Grade: A

Browns – Mingo, Barkevious – DE – 6’4″ – 241 – LSU – 92.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Barkevious Mingo is a huge reach, but this pick is reminiscent of the Seahawks’ selection of Bruce Irvin last year. If all the Browns ask him to do is rush the passer situationally, he can be a stud, but he might not be a three-down player…ever. Also, awfully surprised the Browns passed on Geno Smith. That one might come back to haunt them.” – Grade: B

Cardinals – Cooper, Jonathan – OG – 6’2″ – 311 – UNC – 86.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is too high (and I mean way too high) for an offensive guard. Worse yet, he’s not even the best guard on the board. However, the pick gets a boost because he’s the best guard for the Cardinals. Cooper is more polished than Warmack as a pass-blocker, so he’ll work in Bruce Arians’ offense in Arizona. Sadly, the lack of talent at the Cardinals’ tackle position could keep the scoring from ever reaching the potential Arians is used to.” – Grade: B+

Rams – Austin, Tavon – WR – 5’8″ – 174 – WVU – 91.4
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Austin is not the best receiver in the draft. He’s hardly a receiver at all, because he doesn’t fit on the outside and his skills in the slot aren’t as polished as NFL teams would like. That said, he is an incredible weapon and will make the Rams’ offense immediately more explosive. He can line up in multiple positions and become Sam Bradford’s new best friend. Just get him the ball.” – Grade: A

Jets – Milliner, Dee – CB – 6’0″ – 201 – Alabama – 93.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a great pick for the Jets, and their fans have to be glad that it came to them rather than the team going up and spending extra picks for a cornerback to replace Darrelle Revis. Honestly, the pick isn’t the biggest need because Antonio Cromartie will be the No. 1 cornerback anyway and taking a No. 2 corner with so many needs on the roster seems like a luxury. That said, this is a great fit and Milliner’s physicality and athleticism fits with what the Jets like to do with press coverage out on the edge.” – Grade: A

Titans – Warmack, Chance – OG – 6’2″ – 317 – Alabama – 93.9
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a fantastic value and pick for the Tennessee Titans who have been targeting Chance Warmack for quite sometime. The need isn’t huge because Andy Levitre was already brought over in free agency, but this is going to be a huge pick for the health and success of Chris Johnson and Jake Locker. Positional value aside, Warmack is the best player in the entire draft.” – Grade: A

Chargers – Fluker, D.J. – OT – 6’5″ – 339 – Alabama – 85.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I’m a huge fan of D.J. Fluker, but the fit on the Chargers isn’t great. They need pass protectors and Fluker is a prototypical road-grading run-blocker. Seriously, he is a very talented prospect, but his upside still doesn’t ever fix the Chargers’ biggest issue – protecting Philip Rivers. The line was so atrocious, however, that the pick almost needed to happen. Great player, but a pick that reeks of desperation for San Diego.” – Grade: B+

Raiders- Hayden, D.J. – CB – 5’11″ – 191 – Houston – 85.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The fit is nice for the Raiders and it’s great that they were able to trade down and still land a player they were rumored to be targeting. The value, however, is incredibly low on my board where I had him as a fringe starter and not a first-round player. Hayden’s biggest issues is lack of overall athleticism (straight-line speed aside) and lack of size. He was bodied around often in Conference USA and could get eaten alive by bigger receivers in the NFL. Overall, an OK pick, but there were much better players available.” – Grade: B-

Jets – Richardson, Sheldon – DT – 6’2″ – 294 – Missouri – 90.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Terrible pick for the Jets, but this is still a fantastic player. The Jets have Quinton Coples and Muhammed Wilkerson at 3-4 defensive end and that’s where Richardson fits best. He was my second-ranked tackle in the draft and the Jets get good value, and he fits what they want to do. Still, he’ll likely be a rotational player when there were impact players still on the board.” – Grade: C

Panthers – Lotulelei, Star – DT – 6’2″ – 311 – Utah – 92.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The best pick of the first round so far belongs to the Panthers who get the player they need and the top defensive player on my entire board. Lotulelei has a freakish motor and immense amounts of talent. He’ll make Charles Johnson, Greg Hardy and Luke Kuechly very happy.” – Grade: A+

Saints – Vaccaro, Kenny – S – 6’0″ – 214 – Texas – 87.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The Saints replace Roman Harper (at least down the road) with Vaccaro who is better in coverage and better in the box. Vaccaro has been my top safety all along and will get more chances on errant passes in Rob Ryan’s defense than he ever did at Texas. The negative for the Saints here is that they may need to wait a year or two for this pick to reach its true potential.” – Grade: A-

Bills – Manuel, E.J. – QB – 6’5″ – 237 – FSU – 68.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “I really like this pick for the Buffalo Bills and it says a ton about Ryan Nassib that his own college coach went with a guy that I’ve been saying all along has much better upside. E.J. Manuel isn’t ready right now, and I don’t think he’s the best quarterback (Geno Smith). He’s going to be able to get the team going vertically, and the Bills can install elements of college offenses to get him on the run. This pick is going to get panned across the media, but two years down the road, they’ll regret it.” – Grade: A-

Steelers – Jones, Jarvis -LB – 6’2″ – 245 – Georgia – 88.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Good pick for the Steelers because he fits what they want in an edge-rusher and they have pretty big need for someone to get after the passer. I’m not a huge fan of Jones and I’m not sure that he’ll be able to hold up against the run. He’s also only a marginal athlete. Others (including Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller) are high on him, so he can’t be that bad.” – Grade: A-

49ers – Reid, Eric – S – 6’1″ – 213 – LSU – 82.5
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The 49ers trade up and replace Dashon Goldson with a talented free safety prospect out of the SEC. The need and the fit are there, but the safety class is extremely deep and a comparable talent probably could have been had later in the first. On its face, an overreaction to losing Goldson, and there were probably better ways to use those picks.” – Grade: A-

Giants – Pugh, Justin – OT – 6’4″ – 307 – Syracuse – 73.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Poor pick in my opinion for the Giants because I think Pugh will need to be a guard in the NFL and he is a better fit in a team that uses the zone-blocking scheme a lot more religiously than the Giants. This is a clear example of how runs at the top of the draft board can seriously change the landscape for teams in the teens. This is a reach and the Giants have other needs they could have filled on either side of the ball.” – Grade: B-

Bears – Long, Kyle – OG – 6’6″ – 313 – Oregon – 77.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This run on offensive linemen is embarrassing, and it’s a bit of a shock to the many analysts who thought that offensive linemen weren’t as important as other positions on the football field. The pick actually grades out higher than Pugh because Long is a much better fit for the Bears. Still, another huge reach for a team because it’s so desperate to protect its franchise passer.” – Grade: B

Bengals – Eifert, Tyler – TE – 6’6″ – 251 – ND – 83.3
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “The need isn’t immense for the Bengals here, but Jermaine Gresham has struggled in his short NFL career and Andy Dalton needed more of a safety blanket than Gresham provided. Plus, this gives A.J. Green a little more space on the edge as opponents will be forced to guard the seam. Without position factored in, Eifert was the second-rated player on my board after Chance Warmack.” – Grade: A-

Falcons – Trufant, Desmond – CB – 6’0″ – 190 – Washington – 84.1
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Trufant isn’t my favorite corner in this draft, but he fits the off-man scheme that the Falcons have utilized under Mike Smith. He’ll get pushed around a bit early on in his NFL career, but he won’t be asked to cover No. 1 receivers and should be able to grow nicely with a great team around him. Nice trade up for need by the Falcons.” – Grade: A-

Vikings – Floyd, Sharrif – DT – 6’3″ – 297 – Florida – 94.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is how you draft. Floyd was never the top-five pick that he was considered by many in the media. His game tape is pedestrian and his production was even worse. Yet, to get a player at 23 that many considered worthy of a top-10 pick? That’s huge for the Vikings. Floyd has skills that can be developed and he’ll have a good team around him as well as a great mentor in Kevin Williams.” – Grade: A-

Colts – Werner, Bjoern – DE – 6’3″ – 266 – FSU – 88.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Love this pick for the Colts and I’ve mocked it to them in the past. It’s almost a perfect fit for their system because Werner is a great athlete and can stand up against the run out on the edge playing OLB in their 3-4 scheme. Chuck Pagano will turn Werner into a perennial Pro Bowl player.” – Grade: A

Vikings – Rhodes, Xavier – CB – 6’1″ – 210 – FSU – 86.2
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “This is a pick I often mocked to the Vikings earlier in the first round because he’s such a great fit for them. He’s a little reminiscent of the Chris Cook pick from a few years ago and is a player that the Vikings could use at either cornerback or safety. With Antoine Winfield gone, this was a much needed pick and the value is pretty fantastic. ” – Grade: A

Packers – Jones, Datone – DE – 6’4″ – 283 – UCLA – 85.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Great pick for the Packers – if a little bit of a reach. Jones is a tweener and may not have the raw strength often needed from a 3-4 DE, but next to B.J. Raji, he’ll be able to move around and rush the passer a little more than a normal end might be able to. This is a great fit at a position of need. Ted Thompson does it again.” – Grade: A

Texans – Hopkins, DeAndre – WR – 6’1″ – 214 – Clemson – 87.8
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Hopkins is a bit lower on my board than Keenan Allen and Cordarrelle Patterson, but teams have concerns on Allen’s upside and Patterson’s character. Yet, this is a perfect fit for Houston’s offense and it’s at a position of need. He’ll be a great complement to Andre Johnson, a good intermediate threat for Matt Schaub and a willing blocker in its zone-blocking scheme.” – Grade: A

Broncos – Williams, Sylvester – DT – 6’3″ – 313 – UNC – 80.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Williams is the No. 2 nose tackle/1-technique player in the draft and while I think it is a little early for him, he makes the Broncos’ defensive line a lot better right away. He’ll rotate with both Kevin Vickerson and Terrance Knighton and play snaps at both interior defensive line positions. This will give Von Miller even more room to work with outside.” – Grade: A-

Vikings – Patterson, Cordarrelle – WR – 6’2″ – 216 – Tennessee – 90.6
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Fantastic pick for the Vikings who gave up a bevy of picks to get back into the first round. Patterson fell this far because of off-the-field issues, and the Vikings will need to make sure they monitor him closely, but the fit and value is amazing. Christian Ponder is a happy man right now.” – Grade: A

Rams – Ogletree, Alec – Linebacker – 6’2″ – 242 – Georgia – 84.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Love this pick for the Rams and often had it mocked to them higher in the round. That they were able to trade down and still land him is fantastic. The Rams have good defensive linemen and defensive backs, but other than James Laurinaitis, the team needed some talent and athleticism in the linebacking corps. Ogletree has some off-the-field issues, but Fisher did well with Janoris Jenkins last season and isn’t worried about guiding young men without pristine pasts.” – Grade: A

Cowboys – Frederick, Travis – C – 6’4″ – 312 – Wisconsin – 78.7
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Terrible pick for the Cowboys as Jerry Jones reminds everyone why he needs to hire a real general manager. I have a fringe starter grade on Frederick and there are a number of centers above him. Moreover, the Cowboys have plenty of other needs and could’ve added plenty of talented players without reaching like this.” – Grade: C

Ravens – Elam, Matt – S – 5’10″ – 208 – Florida – 80.0
Michael Schottey’s pick analysis: “Ozzie Newsome strikes again! The addition of Elam will help the defense further improve from the mass exodus it endured during early free agency. Elam is a prototypical strong safety prospect and I like his ball skills – the Ravens will too.” – Grade: A

2012 NFL Draft Picks – Rounds 4 Through 7 (Videos)

Click HERE to view results of ROUND 1.

Click HERE to view results of ROUNDS 2 & 3.

Note: for the following 4 rounds, I have only posted the draft picks of last season’s playoff teams. They are the 49ers, the Texans, the Giants, the Bengals, the Packers, the Broncos, the Lions, the Steelers, the Saints, the Patriots, the Falcons and the Ravens.

Click HERE for all other draft results.

ROUND 4

Ravens (From Vikings) – Gradkowski, Gino – G – 6’3″ – 300 – Delaware – 50.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Gradkowski fortifies the depth on the Ravens’ interior line. He will need some time to develop, but should compete for playing time in a year or so.”VIDEO

Texans (From Buccaneers through Eagles) – Jones, Ben – C – 6’2″ – 303 – Georgia – 78.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Jones is a scrappy center with outstanding technical skills. He excels playing from angles and is a perfect fit in the Texans’ zone scheme.”VIDEO

Broncos (From Jaguars through Buccaneers) – Bolden, Omar – CB – 5’10″ – 202 – Arizona State – 77.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Bolden missed his final season at ASU due to a torn ACL, but possesses the size and movement skills to develop into a starting corner as a pro. If Bolden fully returns to health, this could be a terrific sleeper pick for the Broncos.”VIDEO

Broncos (From Jets) – Blake, Philip – C – 6’2″ – 311 – Baylor – 68.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Blake is a stout pivot with excellent strength and power. He moves defenders off the ball and is capable of working to the second level on movement plays.”VIDEO

Steelers (From Raiders through Redskins) – Ta’Amu, Alameda – DT – 6’3″ – 348 – Washington – 77.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Steelers find a capable replacement for Casey Hampton in Ta’amu. He is immovable off the point and routinely wins against double teams.”VIDEO

Bengals – Charles, Orson – TE – 6’2″ – 251 – Georgia – 79.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Bengals continue to add talented weapons to their offense with the selection of Charles. He is an explosive vertical threat with the athleticism and burst to create problems for defenders in space.”VIDEO

49ers (From Lions) – Looney, Joe – G – 6’3″ – 309 – Wake Forest – 69.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Looney fills a big need for the 49ers along the interior. He will battle for minutes at guard and spend a year honing his craft on the practice field as a vital backup.”VIDEO

Texans – Martin, Keshawn – WR – 5’11″ – 192 – Michigan St. – 76.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Martin is a scrappy pass catcher with underrated return skills. He has a knack for turning short passes into big gains, and gives the Texans a potential solution to their return-game woes.”VIDEO

Saints – Toon, Nick – WR – 6’2″ – 215 – Wisconsin – 77.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Toon is a big, athletic receiver with solid ball skills. His size makes him an ideal target over the middle and he could fill the role of the departed Robert Meachem in the Saints’ open formations.”VIDEO

Lions (From 49ers) – Lewis, Ronnell – OLB – 6’1″ – 253 – Oklahoma – 83.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Lions grab a sleeper prospect with the selection of Lewis. He is a bit of a tweener, but he brings solid rush skills and could contribute as a situational player in sub packages.”VIDEO

Texans (From Patriots through Broncos and Buccaneers) – Crick, Jared – DT – 6’4″ – 279 – Nebraska – 83.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Crick gives the Texans another hard-nosed defender in the mold of J.J. Watt. He is coming off a torn pectoral muscle, but if fully recovered, he could be a starter by the end of his rookie season.”VIDEO

Giants – Robinson, Adrien – TE – 6’4″ – 264 – Cincinnati – 52.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Robinson fills an obvious need for the Giants, given the ACL injuries to Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum that threaten to keep them out of the lineup for the regular season. If Robinson can acclimate quickly to the pro game, he could see significant minutes as the No. 2 tight end.”VIDEO

Ravens (Compensatory selection) – Thompson, Christian – FS – 6’0″ – 211 – South Carolina St. – 53.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Thompson is a rangy safety with size and speed. He will enter the league as a special teams player, but could blossom into a serviceable starter in time.”VIDEO

Giants (Compensatory selection) – Mosley, Brandon – OT – 6’5″ – 314 – Auburn – 73.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Mosley will battle for a backup spot with the world champions. He is still relatively new to the position after spending only a few years at offensive tackle following an extensive playing career as a defensive end/tight end in junior college, so Jerry Reese could view Mosley as a developmental prospect with upside.”VIDEO

Packers (Compensatory selection) – Daniels, Mike – DT – 6’0″ – 291 – Iowa – 68.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Daniels will fight for a playing time on a deep and talented Packers front line. He brings some intriguing tools to the table, but he will need to impress early to crack the lineup.”VIDEO

Packers (Compensatory selection) – McMillian, Jeron – SS – 5’11″ – 203 – Maine – 57.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “McMillian will have to earn his keep as a special teams leader in Green Bay. He certainly possesses the size and speed to be a factor, and that could buy him enough time to develop into a role player on defense.”VIDEO

ROUND 5

Broncos (From Rams) – Jackson, Malik – DT – 6’4″ – 284 – Tennessee – 50.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Broncos continue to add big bodies to their defensive line with the selection of Jackson. He will fight for a spot within the rotation and contribute as a part-time player.”VIDEO

Lions (From Vikings) – Whitehead, Tahir – OLB – 6’1″ – 233 – Temple – 54.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Whitehead will compete for a spot as a backup player. He will bring size and speed to the kick coverage units and improve the overall athleticism of the roster.”VIDEO

Lions (From Raiders) – Greenwood, Chris – CB – 6’1″ – 193 – Albion – 54.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Lions continue to add pieces to their defense with the selection of Greenwood. He is a height-weight-speed project with the ability to make the squad as a fourth or fifth corner.”VIDEO

Bengals – Prater, Shaun – CB – 5’10″ – 190 – Iowa – 66.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Prater is an athletic corner with good instincts and awareness. He is ideally suited to play in sub packages, but could emerge as a starter down the road.”VIDEO

Falcons – Ewing, Bradie – FB – 6’0″ – 239 – Wisconsin – 51.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Ewing is a tough, scrappy lead blocker with outstanding blocking skills. He excels in uprooting defenders out of the box, and will thrive in the Falcons’ run-heavy offense.”VIDEO

Steelers – Rainey, Chris – RB – 5’8″ – 180 – Florida – 71.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Steelers needed a change-of-pace runner with burst and explosiveness. Rainey is an accomplished track athlete with real speed and he will upgrade Pittsburgh’s backfield rotation.”VIDEO

Texans – Bullock, Randol – K – 5’9″ – 205 – Texas A&M – 46.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Bullock will compete for the starting job as the team’s placekicker. He has been a consistent performer at Texas A&M, but will need to step up his game to be a productive pro.”VIDEO

Saints – White, Corey – SS – 5’11″ – 206 – Samford – 54.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “White steps into a good situation in New Orleans with the team in desperate need of a hard-hitting safety in the middle of the field. He will act as the third or fourth safety initially, while making his contributions as a special teams player.”VIDEO

Packers (From Packers through Patriots) – Manning, Terrell – OLB – 6’2″ – 237 – N.C. State – 75.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Manning is an underrated playmaker with big-time talent. He started to flash dominant ability near the end of the season, and could quickly outperform his draft status in Green Bay.”VIDEO

Falcons (From Ravens) – Massaquoi, Jonathan – DE – 6’2″ – 264 – Troy – 72.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Massaquoi will battle for a backup role with the Falcons, but he could emerge as a difference maker as a situational rusher. He possesses the combination of length and quickness to give offensive tackles problems on the edge, and that could translate into significant production for the Falcons.”VIDEO

49ers – Fleming, Darius – OLB – 6’2″ – 245 – Notre Dame – 59.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Fleming will improve the depth and athleticism behind the 49ers’ starting linebackers. He will also anchor their special teams units as a cover guy and possibly develop into a contributor as a situational player.”VIDEO

Bengals (From Patriots) – Jones, Marvin – WR – 6’1″ – 199 – California – 74.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Bengals are quietly assembling an explosive but diverse offensive lineup. Jones is a polished route runner with outstanding ball skills and he could surpass some of the Bengals’ veterans as a possible No. 3 receiver.”VIDEO

Bengals (From Giants) – Iloka, George – FS – 6’4″ – 225 – Boise St. – 73.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Iloka possesses all of the physical tools to develop into a frontline playmaker, but he needs to play with more urgency and toughness. If the light comes on, the Bengals might have landed a solid starter for years at the position.”VIDEO

Ravens (Compensatory selection) – Jackson, Asa – CB – 5’10″ – 191 – Cal Poly – 70.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Ravens nab a small-school standout with the selection of Jackson. He is slightly undersized, but plays with outstanding confidence and tenacity on the perimeter.”VIDEO

ROUND 6

Saints (From Dolphins) – Tiller, Andrew – G – 6’4″ – 324 – Syracuse – 47.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Tiller is the classic mauler/brawler that the Saints love to utilize in the middle. He routinely uproots defenders off the ball and has a chance to win a job as a critical backup.”VIDEO

49ers (From Panthers) – Robinson, Trent – FS – 5’10″ – 195 – Michigan St. – 68.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The 49ers pick up a versatile safety in Robinson. He shows outstanding instincts and awareness and displays the requisite toughness to play in the middle despite his slender frame.”VIDEO

Broncos (From Jets) – Trevathan, Danny – OLB – 6’0″ – 237 – Kentucky – 68.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Broncos pick up a tackling machine in Trevathan. He is slightly undersized for the position, but brings toughness and physicality to the field.”VIDEO

Bengals – Herron, Dan – RB – 5’10″ – 213 – Ohio St. – 54.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Herron gives the Bengals a hard-nosed runner with quickness and power. He will begin the season as a No. 3 running back, but his consistent production could vault him up the depth chart.”VIDEO

Falcons – Mitchell, Charles – SS – 5’11″ – 202 – Mississippi St. – 54.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Mitchell is a former corner turned safety with intriguing overall skills. He floats from deep middle to the box without issues and is a big hitter in the hole.”VIDEO

Texans – Mondek, Nick – OT – 6’6″ – 304 – Purdue – 45.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Texans pick up a developmental prospect in Mondek. He will compete for a roster spot as a backup.”VIDEO

Lions (From Saints through Dolphins and 49ers) – Green, Jonte – DB – 6’0″ – 184 – New Mexico St. – 41.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Green is another corner the Lions will study to see if they can improve a porous secondary. He will battle for time as a backup/special teams contributor.”VIDEO

Patriots (From Packers) – Ebner, Nate – S- ** – *** – Ohio St. – ***
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Ebner will join a competitive situation in New England, so his special teams value could determine his fate in training camp.”VIDEO

Ravens – Streeter, Tommy – WR – 6’5″ – 219 – Miami – 69.0**
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Streeter was expected to come off the board sooner. His combination of speed and athleticism could make him a surprise contributor.”VIDEO

49ers – Slowey, Jason – C – 6’3″ – 303 – Western Oregon – 47.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Slowey is a mauler/brawler with toughness. He will battle for time as a center for the 49ers.”VIDEO

Giants – McCants, Matt – T – 6’5″ – 308 – UAB – 56.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “McCants is a big-bodied edge blocker with some physical attributes scouts covet in developmental prospects.”VIDEO

ROUND 7

Lions (From Eagles through Patriots and Vikings) – Lewis, Travis – OLB – 6’1″ – 246 – Oklahoma – 68.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Lewis is another OLB prospect capable of making a contribution as a special teams star. If he can play well enough on kicking units, he could buy enough time to develop into a quality backup.”VIDEO

Patriots (From Jets through Packers) – Dennard, Alfonzo – CB – 5’10″ – 204 – Nebraska – 85.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Dennard was once viewed as an early-round pick, until a series of poor performances and off-field incidents sabotaged his chances. If he can put those transgressions behind him and focus on football, the Patriots could have a hidden gem on their hands.”VIDEO

Steelers – Clemons, Toney – WR – 6’2″ – 210 – Colorado – 51.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Clemons is a tall, rangy pass catcher with solid skills. He gives the Steelers a bigger receiver to target over the middle.”VIDEO

Saints – Jones, Marcel – T – 6’6″ – 320 – Nebraska – 54.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Saints will give Jones an opportunity to compete for a roster spot as a backup edge blocker. He brings size and strength to the table.”VIDEO

Patriots (From Packers) – Ebert, Jeremy – WR – 5’11″ – 200 – Northwestern – ***
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Ebert will attempt to make the team as a special teams contributor and backup receiver.”VIDEO

Ravens – Tyson, Deangelo – DE – 6’2″ – 315 – Georgia – 54.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Tyson is a hard-working defender with potential. He could make the final roster as a rotational player.”VIDEO

49ers – Johnson, Cam – DE – 6’3″ – 268 – Virginia – 72.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Johnson is a talented defender with solid overall skills. He surprisingly fell down draft boards, but is capable of emerging as a key contributor in a backup role.”VIDEO

Giants – Kuhn, Markus – DT – 6’4″ – 299 – N.C. State – 49.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Kuhn will join a competitive defensive tackle rotation as a backup prospect. He will need to step up his game to make the Giants’ final roster.”VIDEO

Steelers (Compensatory selection) – Paulson, David – TE – 6’3″ – 245 – Oregon – 54.5
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Paulson is an underrated pass catcher with good skills. He could emerge as a surprise contributor as a backup player.”VIDEO

Packers (Compensatory selection) – Datko, Andrew – T – 6’6″ – 315 – Florida St. – 64.7
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Datko gives the Packers another big, physical edge blocker to add to the mix. He was highly regarded by scouts until his season-ending injury and could develop into a solid player in time.”VIDEO

Packers (Compensatory selection) – Coleman, B.J – QB – 6’3″ – 233 – Tennessee-Chattanooga – 68.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “The Packers have always developed young quarterbacks well since the Ron Wolf era. Coleman could be the next pupil to benefit from the on-field tutelage of Mike McCarthy.”VIDEO

Steelers (Compensatory selection) – Frederick, Terrence – CB – 5’10″ – 187 – Texas A&M – 66.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Frederick will compete for playing time as backup/special teams player. He must stand out quickly in workouts to crack a deep rotation at the position.”VIDEO

Steelers (Compensatory selection) – Beachum, Kelvin – T – 6’2″ – 303 – SMU – 49.2
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Beachum joins a competitive situation at offensive tackle as a backup candidate. He has developmental potential, but will need to make strides in several areas to crack the final roster.”VIDEO

Falcons (Compensatory selection) – Robertson, Travian – DT – 6’4″ – 302 – South Carolina – 54.0
Bucky Brooks’ pick analysis: “Robertson will fight for a roster spot as a backup interior player. He flashes some ability, but needs to develop better consistency to crack the Falcons’ rotation.”VIDEO

ROUND 2

Rams – Quick, Brian – WR – 6’3″ – 220 – Appalachian St. – 83.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “The Greatest Show on Turf personally welcomes Brian Quick. He’s a height, weight, speed specimen. His production could be a little delayed, but he will be fast-tracked by the Rams’ coaching staff… This is a guy they’re going to need production from right away.”VIDEO

Colts – Fleener, Coby – TE – 6’6″ – 247 – Stanford – 86.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This has to help Andrew Luck immensely. You’ve got your quarterback of the future, and now this is a great pick that protects him. Luck gets his college tight end.”VIDEO

Ravens (From Vikings) – Upshaw, Courtney – OLB – 6’2″ – 272 – Alabama – 88.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “What a great fit. Remember, their Sam linebacker left town. Upshaw now steps in with a chance to win that spot as a second-round rookie.”VIDEO

Broncos (From Buccaneers) – Wolfe, Derek – DT – 6’5″ – 295 – Cincinnati – 47.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is one of the most solid players in this draft. He won’t overwhelm you with measurables, but when you put his tape on there’s rarely a mistake. He can play the 3-technique, which he will in Denver. His stock had been rising steadily since the Senior Bowl. The Broncos have nothing at defensive tackle, so this is a good pick.”VIDEO

Browns – Schwartz, Mitchell – T – 6’5″ – 318 – California – 82.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a guy that wins ugly — but he wins. His stock has been rising ever since the Senior Bowl. His technique and the angles he takes are phenomenal. He’s a plug-and-play right tackle, so he better be a starter right away.”VIDEO

Jaguars – Branch, Andre – DE – 6’4″ – 259 – Clemson – 86.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “That’s an explosive kid off the edge. Let’s give general manager Gene Smith some credit here, moving up to get his receiver in the first round and now getting a premier rusher off the edge in the second round.”VIDEO

Rams (From Redskins) – Jenkins, Janoris – CB – 5’10″ – 193 – North Alabama – 86.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “We wondered if they could get their wide receiver with the first pick of the second round and then come back and get Jenkins here. One of the most gifted corners in any draft class. His feet and change of direction are phenomenal.”VIDEO

Panthers – Silatolu, Amini – T – 6’4″ – 311 – Midwestern St. – 83.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “That is a good football player, my beast from Midwestern State. He’s tough, nasty, a finisher. He’s a little bit raw. He’s a gifted player, but he’s raw. But I’m telling you right now that he’s a starting guard with Pro Bowl potential. This is a good move by Carolina.”VIDEO

Bills – Glenn, Cordy – T – 6’5″ – 345 – Georgia – 88.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I think he’s better suited for the right side. I don’t think he’s got left-tackle feet, and he could be a Pro Bowl guard if the Bills ever decide to move him inside.”VIDEO

Dolphins – Martin, Jonathan – OT – 6’5″ – 312 – Stanford – 87.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “First-round talent right here, tremendous arm length. I call him a little bit of a finesse player. Doesn’t mean he’s not tough, but he’s so good with his feet and understands angles. I believe the Dolphins just got themselves a starter on either the right or left side.”VIDEO

Jets (From Seahawks) – Hill, Stephen – WR – 6’4″ – 215 – Georgia Tech – 86.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “We’re going to call this kid ‘Thrill Hill’. This kid can jump, he’s fast, he’s long, he’s athletic. I was stunned at how well he got in and out of breaks. But he’s very raw.”VIDEO

Chiefs – Allen, Jeff – T – 6’4″ – 307 – Illinois – 82.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s a natural pass protector, who I think is a Day 1 starter. For Kansas City, I think he’s a left guard, which is fine because he’s got the skill set to do so.”VIDEO

Bears (From Cowboys through Rams) – Jeffery, Alshon – WR – 6’4″ – 230 – South Carolina – 84.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “A lot of people thought he would be a high first-round pick after his second-year production, but that dropped last season mostly because of indifferent QB player. The biggest issue is his weight. The question with him is, which kid are you getting? Are you getting the 213-pound kid who showed up at his pro day, or are you getting the 240-pounder who played last year after you give him a bunch of money?”VIDEO

Eagles – Kendricks, Mychal – ILB – 5’11″ – 239 – California – 79.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I thought he was one of the most productive and active linebackers in college football. He’s instinctive, he can run, and I think he fits what the Eagles do. They have DeMeco Ryans inside. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kendricks outside.”VIDEO

Seahawks (From Jets) – Wagner, Bobby – ILB – 6’0″ – 233 – Utah St. – 84.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is Pete Carroll’s kind of linebacker. He’s been a fast riser. He tested extremely well, and he’s a big linebacker. This guy is also a four-team special teams player, so you get that production from him, too. He can be explosive for them.”VIDEO

Patriots (From Raiders) – Wilson, Tavon – FS – 6’0″ – 205 – Illinois – 48.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is one of the bigger shocks to me so far. He’s been a high riser combination corner and free safety. He’s interesting because, when you talk about Bill Belichick and scheme versatility, this is what Bill goes for.”VIDEO

Chargers – Reyes, Kendall – DT – 6’4″ – 299 – Connecticut – 84.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a good, solid football player. He’s not flashy. He’s an athletic kid, plays a little bit high. But you know what you’re getting from him. He’s a solid 3-technique who will play the 5-technique in San Diego.”VIDEO

Rams (From Bears) – Pead, Isaiah – RB – 5’10″ – 197 – Cincinnati – 76.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Pead is an explosive, burst excelerator. He’s great in space. I love the fact that St. Louis took him. Remember, they’re trying to protect Sam Bradford, and you do that in a number of ways. Nobody is behind Steven Jackson, so you get this kid the ball in space.”VIDEO

Packers (From Cardinals through Eagles) – Worthy, Jerel – DT – 6’2″ – 308 – Michigan St. – 84.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I had a first-round grade on this defensive tackle. There’s positives and negatives with him, so which kid are you buying into? I think he’s a solid football player, and remember that he fits a need and provides depth in Green Bay.”VIDEO

Titans – Brown, Zach – OLB – 6’1″ – 244 – North Carolina – 85.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “There’s good news and bad news with this pick. This is one of the most gifted athletes in this draft. He’s the fastest linebacker, he flies all over. That’s the good news. The bad news is that he’s somewhat allergic to contact. He’s a great Will linebacker to rush the passer, but he struggles at the point of attack.”VIDEO

Bengals – Still, Devon – DT – 6’5″ – 303 – Penn St. – 84.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “The Bengals need a big body behind Geno Atkins who can come in and play on run downs. A lot of people thought a year ago that Still would be a top-20 pick, but his tape is indifferent and inconsistent.”VIDEO

Lions – Broyles, Ryan – WR – 5’10″ – 192 – Oklahoma – 79.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “The bad news for Detroit is that you don’t know how quickly he’s going to be available. I gave him a solid second-round grade before he tore his ACL late in the season at Oklahoma. He’s a quick, fast, tough-as-nails slot receiver who can provide value in the return game. But you don’t know when you’ll get him. They’re going to have to be patient.”VIDEO

Falcons – Konz, Peter – C – 6’5″ – 314 – Wisconsin – 86.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Another one of those plug-and-play offensive lineman who is coached so well. The only downside is that not once in three years did he complete a season without missing a game, so injury has to be a concern. But I think he starts Day 1 in Atlanta.”VIDEO

Steelers – Adams, Mike – OT – 6’7″ – 323 – Ohio St. – 86.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He would’ve been a first-round pick had he not failed the drug test at the combine. He’s got left-tackle feet. There’s some off-the-field issues, but he’s a gifted left tackle. Now with him and David DeCastro in the first round, this is a completely different offensive line.”VIDEO

Broncos – Osweiler, Brock – QB – 6’7″ – 242 – Arizona State – 83.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s a little bit of a project, which makes sense to have him training, interning, behind Peyton Manning and John Elway. He’s very raw but with significant upside. Despite the fact that he’s started just 15 games, you can see the skill set. He’s got a big arm, maybe the best in the draft this year. If I’m Osweiler, I’ve got a big grin on my face being drafted into this situation in Denver.”VIDEO

Buccaneers (From Texans) – David, Lavonte – OLB – 6’1″ – 233 – Nebraska – 86.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “If I was Adam Hayward I’d be a little nervous right now. This kid flies.”VIDEO

Eagles (From Packers) – Curry, Vinny – DE – 6’3″ – 266 – Marshall – 84.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I really believe this is a pick by the Eagles where they say, he’s too good, forget what our needs are. He’s got a motor. He’s going to get hustle sacks and play tough against the run.”VIDEO

Ravens – Osemele, Kelechi – T – 6’5″ – 333 – Iowa St. – 83.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Another guy I really liked in this draft. I’m guessing he’s the kind of player John Harbaugh likes. He’s a phone-booth offensive guard. I don’t think he can live on the outside.”VIDEO

49ers – James, LaMichael – RB – 5’8″ – 194 – Oregon – 73.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Keep in mind he’s a third-down change-of-pace guy, who can hit you a home run. The 49ers didn’t generate a lot of yards on offense, and this guy gives them the ability to hit a home run from anywhere in the park.”VIDEO

Packers (From Patriots) – Hayward, Casey – DB – 5’11″ – 185 – Vanderbilt – 73.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s one of the most instinctive corners in this draft. After Morris Claiborne, Hayward has the best ball skills of any of the corners in this draft. I love this pick for the Packers.”VIDEO

Giants – Randle, Rueben – WR – 6’4″ – 210 – LSU – 86.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Randle is going to have a great opportunity. He’s blessed with talent, and he goes to a great organization.”VIDEO

ROUND 3

Colts – Allen, Dwayne – TE – 6’3″ – 255 – Clemson – 84.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “First Coby Fleener, and now this guy. The Colts are looking for weapons. I like his vertical upside, but I question his ability to run block.”VIDEO

Rams – Johnson, Trumaine – CB – 6’1″ – 204 – Montana – 83.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s got first-round talent even though he went to Montana. Jeff Fisher’s son was a defensive back at Montana, so if anybody has inside information on this kid, it’s the St. Louis Rams.”VIDEO

Vikings – Robinson, Josh – CB – 5’10″ – 199 – Central Florida – 75.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a position of need. They got Harrison Smith at safety in the first round, and now they’ve got a gifted corner. He’s got starting-caliber talent.”VIDEO

Broncos (From Browns) – Hillman, Ronnie – RB – 5’9″ – 200 – San Diego St. – 69.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Another third-down change-of-pace guy who has the ability to make you miss. He’s a guy I think provides instant offense for the Denver Broncos in the screen game, the check-down game. Peyton Manning is going to love him.”VIDEO

Texans (From Buccaneers) – Posey, Devier – WR – 6’1″ – 211 – Ohio St. – 71.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He flashes the ability to control the body with natural hands. Big-bodied receiver. Good pick.”VIDEO

Bills (From Redskins) – Graham, T J – WR – 5’11″ – 188 – N.C. State – 69.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I had him going in the seventh round. He can fly, though.”VIDEO

Jaguars – Anger, Bryan – P – 6’3″ – 208 – California – 58.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I always tease about special teams, but three coaches told me he was a draftable punter who could change field position.”VIDEO

Redskins (From Bills) – Leribeus, Josh – G – 6’3″ – 312 – SMU – 64.7
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s a tough guy. Short arms, but he’s got a nasty disposition.”VIDEO

Dolphins – Vernon, Olivier – DE – 6’2″ – 261 – Miami – 82.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Out of all the underclassmen that came out this year, and I didn’t think many should have, Vernon is one that I banged the table for. He’s a solid 4-3 defensive end who can get edge pressure on the quarterback.”VIDEO

Chargers (From Panthers through Bears and Dolphins) – Taylor, Brandon – SS – 5’11″ – 209 – LSU – 75.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I think he’s got starting capabilities in the NFL. He’s tough, he tackles well, and I just think this is a really solid pick for San Diego.”VIDEO

Chiefs – Stephenson, Donald – T – 6’6″ – 312 – Oklahoma – 82.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “Boy is he a talented developmental left tackle. If you keep this kid working hard, get him in a good locker room with a good offensive line coach, which I think Kansas City has, this kid can pan out nicely.”VIDEO

Seahawks – Wilson, Russell – QB – 5’11″ – 204 – Wisconsin – 68.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I can’t tell you how much I like this kid… Not only can he be a competent backup and change-of-pace quarterback, but I think someday he can be a starting-quality player.”VIDEO

Texans (From Eagles) – Brooks, Brandon – G – 6’5″ – 343 – Miami (OH) – 82.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He wasn’t even a combine invite. He’s a massive, physical freak.”VIDEO

Jets – Davis, Demario – OLB – 6’2″ – 235 – Arkansas State – 69.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is an interesting pick, but I think he fits what the Jets are looking for.”VIDEO

Dolphins (From Chargers) – Egnew, Michael – TE – 6’5″ – 252 – Missouri – 71.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “When you think Missouri tight end, you think freakish athlete who doesn’t block. Well, this is true again. He can really run, and he’s a natural hands catcher.”VIDEO

Bears – Hardin, Brandon – FS – 6’3″ – 217 – Oregon St. – 62.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He missed the entire season with a shoulder injury, but played safety at the East-West game. This is a big, good-looking kid who will definitely play inside in Chicago.”VIDEO

Cardinals – Fleming, Jamell – CB – 5’11″ – 206 – Oklahoma – 83.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He was a riser. He can play zone and will contribute on four teams on special teams.”VIDEO

Cowboys – Crawford, Tyrone – DE – 6’4″ – 275 – Boise St. – 77.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a good pick. He’s the prototypical 5-technique in the 3-4 defense. He provides tremendous depth that the Cowboys want.”VIDEO

Titans – Martin, Mike – DT – 6’1″ – 306 – Michigan – 74.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a pass-rushing interior threat. Martin comes in, and he’ll be explosive for them. This is a defensive tackle who is active and can stop the run, as well as pass rush from the inside.”VIDEO

Bengals – Sanu, Mohamed – WR – 6’2″ – 211 – Rutgers – 80.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s played with three different true freshman QBs in his career, so the fact that he’s impressed enough to get picked in the third round says something about him. I think the Bengals need some help at receiver.”VIDEO

Ravens (From Falcons) – Pierce, Bernard – RB – 6’0″ – 218 – Temple – 71.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “What I like about Pierce is that he has better feet for a big guy than you would think. For the Ravens, anybody who can step in and take some of the load off of Ray Rice, that’s a good thing.”VIDEO

Lions – Bentley, Dwight – CB – 5’10″ – 182 – Louisiana-Lafayette – 73.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I thought he had a better Senior Bowl week than what I saw on tape. He’s quicker than he is fast, and he raised his stock.”VIDEO

Steelers – Spence, Sean – LB – 5’11″ – 231 – Miami – 80.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “One of my favorite football players on tape. He’s one of the more instinctive linebackers in this draft. In the 3-4 scheme in Pittsburgh, he’s going to have to play outside or that Will linebacker inside. Either way, I don’t care, because I really like the way he plays.”VIDEO

Browns (From Broncos) – Hughes, John – DT – 6’2″ – 309 – Cincinnati – 48.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He’s been rising over about the last two months or so. He’s not elite in any one solid category, but he will be a good rotational player.”VIDEO

Eagles (From Texans) – Foles, Nick – QB – 6’5″ – 243 – Arizona – 71.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “We thought they might get involved if Ryan Tannehill had dropped to a certain level in the first round. This is a productive QB out of Arizona. I don’t like his feet very much, think he’s a bit heavy-footed in the pocket. But with some development, he’s got a chance to make his way in this league. He’ll get some good coaching in Philadelphia.”VIDEO

Saints – Hicks, Akiem – DE – 6’5″ – 318 – Regina – 50.2
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He couldn’t play at LSU, went back to Canada, and he dominates at every level. He’s huge and is stout at the point.”VIDEO

Patriots (From Packers) – Bequette, Jake – DE – 6’5″ – 274 – Arkansas – 66.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “High-motor guy, tough guy. He’ll fit in well in the Patriots’ locker room. Another toy for Coach Belichick to play with.”VIDEO

Falcons (From Ravens) – Holmes, Lamar – T – 6’5″ – 323 – Southern Miss – 50.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He is a huge tackle. He’s active, he’s tough, and I think he’ll bring a degree of tenacity to the Falcons’ line that they need.”VIDEO

Colts (From 49ers) – Hilton, T Y – WR – 5’10″ – 183 – Florida International – 74.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a quick and fast player. I think he brings tremendous value also in the return game.”VIDEO

Bengals (From Patriots) – Thompson, Brandon – DT – 6’2″ – 314 – Clemson – 84.5
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “He can push the pocket in the pass game. He’s quick, he’s tough, he gets off the ball quickly. He’s got a little giddy-up to his game. I like him.”VIDEO

Giants – Hosley, Jayron – CB – 5’10″ – 178 – Virginia Tech – 84.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “This is a squat corner from Virginia Tech who I think is a heck of a football player.”VIDEO

Raiders (Compensatory selection) – Bergstrom, Tony – OT – 6’5″ – 313 – Utah – 59.0
Mike Mayock’s pick analysis: “I kind of like this player out of Utah. I believe he will kick inside at guard for the Raiders. He brings some nastiness to Oakland’s line.”VIDEO
