108. Cleveland Browns: Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas

The Browns could use more tight end talent. Here's a nice value pick.

As a senior, Sprinkle had 33 receptions for 380 yards with four touchdowns. He played well as a junior as part of a pair with Hunter Henry, recording 27 catches for 289 yards with six scores. As one could expect from playing for Arkansas, Sprinkle (6-5, 252) is a decent blocker, but he also has some off-the-field concerns.

109. San Francisco 49ers: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson

The 49ers could take some running back depth with Carlos Hyde entering a contract year.

In 2016, Gallman averaged 5.1 yards per carry for 1,087 yards with 16 touchdowns. He tacked on 17 receptions for 113 yards as well. Gallman was the workhorse of the Clemson offense in 2015, averaging 5.4 yards per carry for 1,527 yards with 13 touchdowns. He also caught 21 passes for 213 yards with a score.

Gallman (6-0, 215) has impressive feet with the ability to be elusive in the open field. He also possesses tremendous lateral quickness to dodge tacklers and a burst to accelerate running North-South. Gallman is a quick runner who could stand to add some weight for the next level.

Gallman already has some power to him to pound the ball for some tough yards and finish off runs. It would be good to see him improve his knee bend and pad level. He is a taller back, and as a result, he can run a little upright at times. That could lead to issues with injuries and ball security.

110. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo

The Jaguars could consider taking multiple tight ends considering Marcedes Lewis turns 33 just after the 2017 NFL Draft and Julius Thomas was traded away.

Roberts (6-4, 261) is a blocking tight end for the NFL, yet he also has some receiving ability. Scouting sources said that Roberts could be the best pure Y - blocking - tight end in the 2017 NFL Draft. They say Roberts is athletic enough to make some plays as a short option or in the red zone. He had a quality week at the Senior Bowl, minus a few dropped passes. In 2016, Roberts totaled 45 receptions for 533 yards with 16 touchdowns. As a junior, he made 21 catches for 234 yards with four scores.

111. Chicago Bears: Chad Hansen, WR, California

The Bears could use more wide receiver talent for their young quarterback.

Hansen (6-2, 202) was a wide receiver who impressed evaluators in 2016. California quarterback Davis Webb has second-day potential for the 2017 NFL Draft, and Hansen was his No. 1 receiver. In 2016, Hansen had 92 receptions for 1,249 yards with 11 touchdowns. It was a huge jump in production as Hansen made 19 catches for 249 yards and a score as a sophomore. Hansen has good size, but isn't the most explosive receiver. He could be a mid-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

112. Los Angeles Rams: Rudy Ford, S, Auburn

The Rams could use another safety after losing T.J. McDonald in free agency.

Ford collected 59 tackles with seven passes broken up in 2016. He was a dependable safety who contributed in pass defense and in run defense. Ford (5-11, 200) was a solid defender for Auburn over the past few seasons. In 2015, he totaled 118 tackles with one sack, two passes broken up and two interceptions, plus showed that he is a threat as a kick returner. As a sophomore, Ford had 93 tackles with three interceptions.

113. Los Angeles Chargers: Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn

The Chargers could take some defensive end depth with Melvin Ingram and Jeremiah Attaochu entering free agency next year.

Lawson totaled 30 tackles with 12.5 for a loss, nine sacks and one forced fumble in 2016. In 2015, he seemed to give Laremy Tunsil more trouble than Myles Garrett did. If Lawson hadn't missed half of that season with an injury, he could have had a huge year. He totaled 17 tackles and one sack in his seven games. Lawson missed all of the 2014 season, and as a freshman, he had 20 tackles with four sacks.

Lawson is fast off the edge with some natural strength to fight blockers. The 6-foot-2, 261-pounder has a lot of upside, but his lack of durability is a huge negative. He has the talent to be a first-rounder, but his health is a big question mark.

114. Washington Redskins: Chad Williams, WR, Grambling

The Redskins could use some receiver depth as Terrelle Pryor only signed a 1-year contract. They've also shown interest in Williams.

Williams (6-0, 204) had an impressive week at the Senior Bowl and flashed some speed to push defenses vertically. In 2016, he totaled 89 receptions for 1,334 yards with 10 touchdowns. Williams also had a strong junior season with 64 receptions for 1,012 yards with 11 touchdowns.

Williams could be a sleeper prospect who ends up being a nice value pick. There are sources who are impressed with him.

115. Carolina Panthers: Travin Dural, WR, LSU

The Panthers grab some wide receiver depth.

Sources say that Dural had early round potential before a torn hamstring injury. Perhaps he will recover his speed and suddenness after getting further from the injury. In 2016, Dural had 28 receptions for 280 yards with one touchdown. He totaled 28 receptions for 533 yards and three touchdowns in 2015, but also had two long touchdowns against Mississippi State called back on penalties. Even with inconsistent quarterback play in 2014, Dural was one of the SEC's breakout performers. He averaged 21 yards per catch with 37 receptions for 758 yards and seven touchdowns.

The 6-foot-1, 206-pounder plays larger than his size, yet has the quickness to make an impact downfield. Dural had the potential to produce more over his career, but LSU had awful quarterback play and kept the ball on the ground a lot.

116. Cincinnati Bengals: Kendell Beckwith, ILB, LSU

The Bengals could use multiple linebackers as they have a few veterans entering free agency after this season.

In 2016, Beckwith totaled 91 tackles with six for a loss, one sack and four passes broken up. He played well in 2015 for LSU as a physical in-the-box presence. On the year, the junior totaled 84 tackles with 10 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles and a pass batted. As a sophomore, he had 77 tackles with three pass breakups, two sacks and an interception.

Beckwith (6-2, 243) was a strong tackler and good at taking on blocks in college. He needs to improve his pass-coverage skills for the NFL though, but teams really liked him before he got injured.

117. Chicago Bears: Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, Alabama

The Bears grab some five-technique talent.

Tomlinson (6-3, 312) was a good run stuffer for Alabama and really improved late in the 2016 season with more plays in the backfield. He had 62 tackles with three sacks, four passes broken up and one forced fumble on the year. Tomlinson had a good week of practice at the Senior Bowl and wowed teams in the interview sessions. Tomlinson rotated into the game and totaled 34 tackles with six passes batted in 2015. With Jarran Reed and A'Shawn Robinson in the NFL, Tomlinson should take on a bigger role in 2016.

118. Philadelphia Eagles: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee

The Eagles could use multiple cornerback upgrades.

In 2016, Sutton recorded eight tackles with one pass breakup and an interception. His season ended during Week 3, when he broke a bone in his ankle. Sutton has decent size, quickness and instincts. He prevents separation, but needs to get better at playing the ball. The 5-foot-11, 188-pounder is a physical defender who plays with a chip on his shoulder.

Sutton totaled 28 tackles, one interception and six passes batted in 2015. He was excellent for the Volunteers in 2014, recording 37 tackles with three interceptions, 13 passes broken up and four tackles for a loss for the year. Sutton was a superb freshman cornerback in 2013 while recording 39 tackles, seven passes broken up and two interceptions that season.

119. Arizona Cardinals: Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

The Cardinals could add multiple defensive linemen since Calais Campbell left in free agency and Robert Nkemdiche struggled as a rookie.

Hendrickson was one of the stars of the East-West Shrine with a strong week of practice. He did well in the pass-rushing one-on-ones and notched a lot of wins. In 2016, Hendrickson totaled 51 tackles with 15 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks, one forced fumble and two passes batted. He had 13.5 sacks as a junior.

Hendrickson could be a mid-round sleeper. Sources have said they graded him in the early rounds of Day 3, but sneaking into the second day is possible. Hendrickson had an impressive combine performance.

120. Minnesota Vikings: Larry Ogunjobi, DT, Charlotte

The Vikings could use some interior defensive line depth given the uncertain future for Sharrif Floyd.

Ogunjobi (6-2, 304) turned in four seasons of solid production for Charlotte, including his senior year, when he notched 65 tackles with 13.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks and two passes broken up. Ogunjobi had 62 tackles with 2.5 sacks as a junior and five sacks as a sophomore. He put together a good week of practice at the Senior Bowl.

121. Indianapolis Colts: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston

The Colts could use more talent at corner, plus they have Vontae Davis in a contract year.

Wilson (6-1, 184) was a surprise early entry in the 2017 NFL Draft as he was not expected to skip his final two seasons of college football. The NFL Draft Advisory recommended that Wilson go back to school. He probably will be a mid-round pick, but he has a good skill set. In 2016, Wilson notched 54 tackles with 10 passes broken up and five interceptions. He could be a sleeper corner who ends up being a nice value pick.

122. Baltimore Ravens: Rasul Douglas, CB, West Virginia

The Ravens grab a sleeper cornerback.

Douglas (6-2, 204) is a junior college product who didn't play much as a junior. However, he made the most of his senior year as he tied as the nation's leader with eight interceptions. Douglas also recorded 70 tackles and eight passes broken up.

Sources say that Douglas has good size to him for the NFL, and they see him being a big press-man corner with ball skills. He also has early round potential, but sources say that since Douglas is a 1-year wonder, he needed to impress at the Senior Bowl. That didn't really happen as his time in Mobile was filled with highlights and lowlights.

123. Washington Redskins: Jon Toth, C, Kentucky

The Redskins have a talented young offensive line, but they could use an interior lineman to finish it off.

Toth (6-4, 308) had a fine senior season and career at Kentucky. He started 47 straight games and was a big part of the Wildcats having a team average of 5.5 yards per carry. He also turned in a quality week at the Senior Bowl.

Toth has good size to be a center in the NFL. He has strength in his base and developed technique.

124. Tennessee Titans: Garrett Sickels, DE, Penn State

Here's an understudy for veterans Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo.

Sickels (6-3, 261) decided to skip his senior season at Penn State and enter the 2017 NFL Draft. The junior recorded 47 tackles with 12.5 tackles for a loss and six sacks in 2016. The previous season, he had 35 tackles with five tackles for a loss and three sacks playing on the other side from Carl Nassib. Sickels would probably fit best in the NFL as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

125. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Lorenzo Jerome, S, St Francis (PA)

The Bucs could use some more safety talent.

Jerome (5-10, 202) is an intriguing player who has created a buzz in scouting circles. He was a productive player with a tremendous display of ball skills in college. Jerome had interception totals of six, three, three and six over the past four seasons with pass breakup totals of five, seven, 13 and four. He also had 59 tackles as a senior. Jerome impressed at the East-West Shrine and at the Senior Bowl. He could be a find from the mid-rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.

126. Denver Broncos: Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma

The Broncos could use receiving competition and a speedy slot candidate.

Westbrook was a clutch receiver for Oklahoma in 2016 with 80 receptions for 1,524 yards with 17 touchdowns. The 6-foot, 178-pounder is very slight for the NFL and needs to add weight in order to hold up. He could fit as a speedy slot receiver. As a junior, Westbrook had 46 catches for 743 yards and four scores.

127. Detroit Lions: Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin

Ameer Abdullah has been a disappointment thus far for the Lions. Even if he turns it on in Year 3, Detroit could use a power runner to pair with him.

Clement averaged 4.4 yards per carry in 2016 for 1,375 yards with 15 touchdowns. He had 12 receptions for 132 yards as well. Clement (5-10, 221) had a respectable showing at the Senior Bowl as he was a physical downhill runner.

128. Minnesota Vikings: Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State

The Vikings could use some cornerback depth given the age of Terrance Newman and losing Captain Munneryln. Minnesota has shown interest in Kazee.

In 2016, Kazee recorded 65 tackles with eight passes broken up and seven interceptions. The 5-foot-10, 183-pounder didn't impress at the Senior Bowl, however. Kazee was the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year for with eight interceptions, 75 tackles, and seven passes broken up. He had 58 tackles, 13 breakups, and an interception as a sophomore. Kazee almost entered the 2016 NFL Draft, but the fourth-round grade from the NFL Advisory Board probably was a big reason why he wisely decided to return for his senior year.

129. Oakland Raiders: Vincent Taylor, DT, Oklahoma State

The Raiders could use multiple interior defensive line additions.

Taylor (6-3, 304) is a sleeper prospect who could end up being a nice value pick in the mid-rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft. He has disruptive speed at the point of attack and the strength to fight off blockers. Taylor played well as a junior and decided to skip his senior year. In 2016, Taylor totaled 51 tackles with 13 for a loss, seven sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass broken up. He recorded 48 tackles with 8.5 for a loss, five sacks and a pass broken up in 2015. Taylor has quality size and athleticism with good upside to develop.

130. Houston Texans: Montae Nicholson, SS, Michigan State

The Texans need multiple safeties after losing Quintin Demps in free agency.

Sources have said they really like Nicholson's skill set. He was a surprise early entry into the 2017 NFL Draft, and some teams feel that he has staring potential quickly in the NFL. The junior notched 89 tackles with two passes broken up and one interception in 2016. He had a quality sophomore season with 83 tackles, two passes broken up and three interceptions. Nicholson (6-2, 212) possesses a serious combination of size and speed.

131. New England Patriots: Jordan Morgan, OG, Kutztown

The Patriots could use some interior offensive line depth and competition. New England has shown interest in Morgan as well.

Sources say that the small-school prospect is a potential third-day offensive lineman who could have risen with a strong performance at the Senior Bowl. He didn't really handle the better competition well and will need development as a backup before starting.

Morgan has good size and is strong at the point of attack. Some team contacts have said they think he could be a lesser version of Ali Marpet, who was a Division III player and ended up being a second-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sources said that Morgan was being graded in the fourth or fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft before the Senior Bowl.

132. Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Saubert, TE, Drake

The Chiefs grab a tight end to work behind Travis Kelce.

Saubert (6-5, 253) showed his receiving skills at the Senior Bowl, continuing to use speed and athleticism to get separation from defenders. He will need to improve his blocking for the NFL, but his size allows him to match up with front seven defenders. Some scouting sources were raving about Saubert's route-running in the seven-on-seven drill. In a talented tight end class, Saubert could turn into a really nice value pick on Day 3 of the 2017 NFL Draft.

133. Dallas Cowboys: Tarell Basham, DE, Ohio

The Cowboys grab some more pass-rushing competition.

Every year, there are some small-school prospects who get exposure at the college all-star games, and Basham took advantage with an impressive Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-3, 259-pounder has the quickness to be an edge rusher in the NFL and has athletic upside to develop.

As a senior, Basham recorded 50 tackles with 16 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks and two passes broken up. He put together some modest sack production as a junior (5.5), sophomore (4) and freshman (7.5). Basham ended his career with totals of 40 tackles for a loss, 28.5 sacks and six forced fumbles.

134. Green Bay Packers: Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa

The Packers grab a some defensive line depth and competition.

The 6-foot-2, 309-pound Johnson has the skill set to be a difference-maker at the point of attack. He is strong enough to shed blocks, yet has the speed to close on the quarterback. Johnson needs to get more consistent and increase the tempo of his motor, but he racked up 7.5 sacks in 2016. He also had 55 tackles with 10 tackles for a loss and two passes broken up. In a number of ways, Johnson is a similar prospect to former teammate Carl Davis, who had first-round potential but slid to the third round in large part because of inconsistent effort.

135. Pittsburgh Steelers: Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

The Steelers could use some wide receiver depth and have shown interest in Reynolds.

Reynolds totaled 61 receptions for 1,039 yards and 12 scores in 2016. He was a reliable receiver for the Aggies. Reynolds (6-2, 187) put together a quality week at the Senior Bowl, too. He showed the ability to get some late separation and is excellent on 50-50 contested catches. In 2015, Reynolds caught 51 passes for 907 yards and five touchdowns. He had a quality 2014 season with 52 receptions for 842 yards and 13 touchdowns.

136. Atlanta Falcons: Charles Walker, DT, Oklahoma

Atlanta could use a more interior defensive line depth with Jonathan Babineaux aging.

In 2016, Walker totaled seven tackles with two for a loss and four passes broken up. He only played in four games because of a concussion and quit the team early in order to prepare for the 2017 NFL Draft. Walker was one of the few Oklahoma players who impressed in the 2016 opener against Houston, collecting three tackles, 1.5 for a loss and a pass batted. He had an impressive 2015 season with 36 tackles, six sacks and a forced fumble.

Walker displayed enough speed, strength and versatility to play end or tackle for Oklahoma, allowing him to be disruptive at the point of attack. The 6-foot-2, 310-pounder is talented and was cleared medically at the combine.

137. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Walker, OLB, Northwestern

The Colts need to improve their roster all over the place. Here is some linebacker help.

In 2016, Walker recorded 105 tackles with 10 for a loss, four forced fumbles, two sacks, five passes broken up and one interception. Sources say they liked Walker (6-1, 238) more as a player in 2015. He was 20 pounds heavier in 2016, and sources feel that the extra weight severely degraded his speed and explosion.

Prior to his weight gain, Walker was a fast sideline-to-sideline defender. He functioned well in man coverage and was very dangerous in zone. Walker had a great 2015 season as he totaled 122 tackles with 20.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, four passes batted, one forced fumble and one interception.

138. Cincinnati Bengals: Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia

The Bengals could consider some interior offensive line competition after losing Kevin Zeitler.

Orlosky is good in the ground game and generally reliable in pass protection. The 6-foot-2, 292-pounder could develop into a starting center in the NFL. He isn't overly strong, but gets in good position and is an angle blocker.

139. Philadelphia Eagles: Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech

The Eagles could take multiple wide receivers from this class as there is good mid-round depth.

Ford totaled 79 receptions for 1,094 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016. The 6-foot-1, 194-pounder had a breakout sophomore season with 75 receptions for 1,156 yards with 11 touchdowns. He also contributed as a freshman with 56 catches for 709 yards and six scores.

140. New York Giants: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State

The Giants get some offensive line competition.

Johnson (6-7, 298) has athletic potential, but he needs a lot of work. He lacks strength and doesn't generate any push in the ground game. Johnson ties up his blocker, but is not a force at the point of attack to push a defender out of their gap. In pass protection, Johnson has the athleticism to protect against speed rushers, but he is weak at blocking inside moves and gets bull rushed too easily. Even undersized speed rushers have success when bull rushing him. Johnson is a finesse player who needs development, but he has natural size and athletic ability to work with.

141. Los Angeles Rams: Damore'ea Stringefellow, WR, Ole Miss

The Rams grab more receiving talent for Jared Goff.

In 2016, Stringefellow totaled 46 receptions for 716 yards with six touchdowns. As a sophomore (36-503-5) and freshman (20-259-1) Stringefellow contributed behind Treadwell and Evan Engram. Stringefellow (6-2, 219) has a special combination of size and speed. He likely would have benefited by returning for his senior year to produce more as the No. 1 target before going pro. Stringefellow has some off-the-field issues, too, which prevented him from working out at the combine. Team sources say that Stringefellow has the skill set of a No. 1 receiver, but his off-the-field issues really sink his draft stock well into Day 3 on team's draft boards.

142. Houston Texans: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar

The Texans could use a replacement for A.J. Bouye.

Langley (6-0, 199) put together a big 2016 season for Lamar with 43 tackles, seven passes broken up and six interceptions. The senior also returned two punts for touchdowns. As a junior, he had 21 tackles with 11 passes broken up and one interception. Langley has good height and length to him. He earned an invitation to the Senior Bowl and was impressive there. Langley showed good skills to run with receivers and prevent separation.

143. San Francisco 49ers: George Kittle, TE, Iowa

The 49ers could grab some tight end depth and have shown interest in Kittle.

Kittle (6-4, 247) used the combine to help his draft stock as he ran much faster than expected in the 40 and worked out well on the field. As a senior, he made 22 receptions for 314 yards with four touchdowns while playing in a rushing offense. Kittle had 20 catches for 290 yards and six scores as a junior.

144. Indianapolis Colts: Eddie Jackson, SS, Alabama

The Colts continue to build up their defense with a free safety upgrade.

Jackson recorded 24 tackles with two passes broken up, one interception that was returned 55 yards for a touchdown, and two punts returned for touchdowns in 2016 before a broken leg ended his season after eight games. The 6-foot, 194-pounder massively improved after a move to safety from cornerback for 2015. He had six interceptions, 46 tackles and two passes broken up there at the former that season. Jackson looked more natural in coverage as a safety. As a sophomore corner, Jackson totaled 41 tackles with six passes broken up and one interception. He had 19 tackles with two passes broken up and a pick in 2013. Jackson needs to continue to add weight to play in the box and tackle in the NFL.
