Cleveland Browns: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
The Browns could use a right tackle competitor.
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.
San Francisco 49ers: Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
The 49ers could use more wide receiver talent.
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.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh
The Jaguars could use some depth at guard.
Johnson (6-5, 300) looks the part and turned in some nice performances during 2016. He has some ability to contribute to the ground game. Some sources have said they have a third-day grade on Johnson. They feel he lacks athleticism and the ability to hit a block in space. Multiple teams have said they graded Johnson as a fourth- or fifth-rounder. However, they say other teams like Johnson and have him graded on the second day. Thus, Johnson has a good shot to go on Friday night during the 2017 NFL Draft.
Chicago Bears: Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas
The Bears could use another tight end, and this is 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.
Los Angeles Rams: Tarell Basham, DE, Ohio
The Rams could use some edge-rushing depth.
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. Basham (6-3, 259) has the quickness to be an edge rusher in the NFL and has athletic upside to develop. As a senior, he recorded 50 tackles with 16 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks and two passes broken up. Basham put together some modest sack production as a junior (5.5), sophomore (4) and freshman (7.5). He ended his career with totals of 40 tackles for a loss, 28.5 sacks and six forced fumbles.
Los Angeles Chargers: Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
The Chargers could use some receiver 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. If Ford can show the speed to separate and stretch the field vertically, that would help the junior's draft stock.
Washington Redskins: Anthony Walker, OLB/ILB, Northwestern
Washington could grab more linebacker talent.
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.
Carolina Panthers: Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
The Panthers could use sign a veteran tackle in free agency and also look to the 2017 NFL Draft for another.
Sources say that Davenport has superb measurements to be a starting left tackle in the NFL. He weighed in at the Senior Bowl at 6-foot-6, 310 pounds and possesses excellent length with 36-inch arms and 10.5-inch hands. Davenport has good athleticism with quick feet and a background in playing basketball. He needs to add a lot of strength, however, as he plays too high and can get pushed around. Davenport also struggles with redirecting and can get bull rushed. He needs some developmental time in the NFL.
Cincinnati Bengals: Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo
Cincinnati could use more depth at tight end behind Tyler Eifert.
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.
Chicago Bears: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
The Bears could use more long-term cornerback talent.
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. He showed good skills to run with receivers and prevent separation.
Philadelphia Eagles: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee
The Eagles could use multiple cornerback additions.
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.
Arizona Cardinals: Kendell Beckwith, ILB, LSU
The Cardinals could use linebacker talent after moving on from Kevin Minter.
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.
Minnesota Vikings: David Sharpe, OT, Florida
The Vikings could use offensive tackle depth and competition.
Sharpe was a solid left tackle for the Gators. He is a good run blocker and a better athlete with more quickness than one would think. Sharpe had a good first half against Tennessee's Derek Barnett before struggling in the second half.
For the NFL, Sharpe would probably be best as a guard or right tackle. As a sophomore in 2015, Sharpe saw action at both tackle positions. He was a good run blocker who flashed some pass-protection skills. Sharpe (6-6, 343) needs to improve his pass blocking if he is going to stay at left tackle, but he has upside to develop.
Indianapolis Colts: Rudy Ford, S, Auburn
The Colts could use multiple secondary upgrades with additions at safety.
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.
Baltimore Ravens: Jarron Jones, DT/3-4DE/NT, Notre Dame
The Ravens grab more defensive line talent.
Jones recorded 45 tackles with 11 for a loss, two sacks, three passes batted and one forced fumble in 2016, but was more active for Notre Dame than the numbers illustrate. Jones (6-6, 314) is a disruptive defender who makes plays in the backfield in the ground game as well as putting heat on the quarterback. He has versatile size for a 3-4 or 4-3 defense. His stock could really rise in the leadup to the 2017 NFL Draft. Early on in 2015, Jones tore his MCL and went out for the season. He was having a quality 2014 season before a foot injury caused him to miss the final two contests.
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. Toth has good size to be a center in the NFL. He had a quality week at the Senior Bowl. He has strength in his base and developed technique.
Tennessee Titans: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston
Given their major problems at cornerback, the Titans could choose to double up on the position in the first four rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.
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.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Carl Lawson, DE/3-4OLB, Auburn
The Bucs grab more edge-rush talent.
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 a ton of talent and could be a first-rounder, but his health is a big question mark.
Denver Broncos: Javarius Leamon, OT, South Carolina State
The Broncos continue to build up their offensive line with a talented tackle to develop.
Leamon (6-7, 310) really impressed scouts in 2016. Sources say that Leamon is athletic with an above-average ability to anchor against bull rushers. He is a little finesse and will need to improve his strength for the NFL, but team evaluators feel he has the potential to grow into starting left tackle. Leamon does have some learning issues and may not be a good fit for hard coaching.
Detroit Lions: Jalen Robinette, WR, Air Force
The Lions could use some receiver depth.
Robinette (6-3, 220) flashed as a senior for Air Force with 35 receptions for 959 yards with six touchdowns. He has a nice combination of size and quickness. In 2015, Robinette notched 26 catches for 641 yards with five scores. His sophomore season (43-806-4) featured some quality production.
Minnesota Vikings: Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma
The Vikings could use more wide receiver competition.
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.
Oakland Raiders: Dalvin Tomlinson, DT/NT, Alabama
The Raiders could use multiple interior defensive line additions.
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.
Houston Texans: Fish Smithson, S, Kansas
The Texans could use multiple safeties from the 2017 NFL Draft.
Smithson totaled 93 tackles with seven passes broken up, four interceptions and two forced fumbles in 2016. He played really well in pass coverage and run defense. The 5-foot-10, 210-pounder could be a steal. In 2015 on an 0-12 team, Smithson led the nation with 7.9 solo tackles per game on 87 solo tackles. He totaled 111 stops with two interceptions, five passes broken up and one forced fumble on the year. One general manager told WalterFootball.com that in studying pre-draft tape, Smithson really jumped out at them.
New England Patriots: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama
The Patriots could use some competition for, and a potential upgrade over, Patrick Chung.
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.
Kansas City Chiefs: Davis Webb, QB, California
The Chiefs grab a big-armed quarterback to develop behind Alex Smith.
In 2016, Webb completed 62 percent of his passes for 4,295 yards with 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The graduate transfer has a strong arm and can make some well-placed passes downfield. He also has good size and stands tall in the pocket. Webb shows some field vision to work through his progressions, but he doesn't have mobility for the NFL. In terms of the critical characteristic of accuracy, Webb has potential. Sources say Webb (6-4, 229) can be erratic, but that they like him enough to think of him as a potential second-day pick. California's offense does a poor job of preparing quarterbacks for the NFL - see Jared Goff -, so Webb will have to learn calling plays in the huddle, working under center, traditional footwork for a pro quarterback, and running NFL plays instead of California's Bear Raid college plays.
Dallas Cowboys: Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson
The Cowboys grab some wide receiver depth.
Scott made 76 receptions for 614 yards and five touchdowns in 2016. He hauled in some clutch catches for the Tigers. Scott is a quick slot receiver for the NFL. At the Senior Bowl, he had a quality week with some flashes. In 2015, Scott caught 93 passes for 901 yards and six touchdowns. As a freshman, he had 76 catches for 965 yards and eight touchdowns. Scott (5-10, 193) is smaller slot receiver candidate for the NFL.
Green Bay Packers: Vincent Taylor, DT/3-4DE/NT, Oklahoma State
The Packers grab a some defensive line rotational talent after moving on from Datone Jones.
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.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Deatrich Wise Jr., DE/3-4OLB, Arkansas
The Steelers need to get more young edge-rushing talent.
In 2016, Wise had 49 tackles with 5.5 for a loss, 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble and three passes batted. He displayed improvement in his run defense, but his pass-rush production dropped off compared to previous years. In 2015, Wise recorded 31 tackles with 10.5 for a loss, eight sacks and three passes broken up as a situational pass-rusher.
Wise had a decent week at the the East-West Shrine. The 6-foot-5, 274-pounder has some natural pass-rushing ability to him with the on the edge.
Atlanta Falcons: Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic
Atlanta could use an end across from Vic Beasley.
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.
Indianapolis Colts: Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
The Colts need to improve their roster all over the place. Here is some help for the offensive line.
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.
Cincinnati Bengals: Jordan Morgan, G, Kutztown
The Bengals could draft a guard since they lost Kevin Zeitler in free agency.
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.
Philadelphia Eagles: Travin Dural, WR, LSU
The Eagles could still draft a couple of wide receivers considering Alshon Jeffery only signed a 1-year contract.
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, but LSU had awful quarterback play and kept the ball on the ground a lot.
New York Giants: Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami
The Giants add a young developmental backup behind Eli Manning.
When he gets good pass protection, Kaaya (6-4, 209) can be impressive. He has a strong arm, pocket presence, field vision to work through his progressions, and makes some beautiful throws downfield into tight windows to beat good coverage. Kaaya also has experience working under center in a pro-style offense. On the other hand, Kaaya has two fatal flaws with looking down at the rush when he starts to get pressured and a crippling lack of mobility. Kaaya struggles to avoid sacks with his feet and isn't big enough to break tackles. Dropping his eyes and struggling to avoid sacks leads to a lot of negative plays and missed opportunities for him.
Kaaya connected on 62 percent of his passes in 2016 for 3,532 yards with 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions. In 2015, Kaaya completed 61 percent of his passes for 3,238 yards with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions while playing for a team that was rebuilding. He completed 59 percent of his passes for 3,198 yards with 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as a freshman starter in 2014.
Los Angeles Rams: Jonnu Smith, TE, Florida International
The Rams grab some receiving tight end talent for Jared Goff.
Smith made nationwide news in 2016 by suffering a serious injury off the field. His pregnant girlfriend poured boiling water on him after arguing about him not spending enough time with her. The senior totaled 42 receptions for 506 yards with four touchdowns on the year. He had quality production as a junior (36-397-4), sophomore (61-710-8) and freshman (39-388-2).
The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder is a quick, athletic receiving tight end to be a potential mismatch weapon. Some sources have Smith grading out as a third- or fourth-round pick. Multiple team sources have compared Smith to being a Charles Clay-type player in the NFL.
Houston Texans: K.D. Cannon, WR, Baylor
The Texans need some wide receiver depth.
In 2016, Cannon notched 87 receptions for 1,215 yards with 13 touchdowns. He has some speed for the NFL, and he could be a nice mid-round value pick. Cannon (5-11, 182) also produced as a freshman and sophomore. He is a speed receiver for the NFL.
San Francisco 49ers: De'Veon Smith, RB, Michigan
The 49ers grab some running back depth.
In 2016, Smith averaged 4.7 yards per carry for 846 yards with 10 touchdowns. He made 16 receptions for 66 yards as well. Smith is a tough downhill runner who also has some vision and cutting ability. His numbers suffered in 2016 because he split carries, but he is a talented back. At the East-West Shrine, Smith (5-10, 220) was excellent and sources raved about him. He showed some real receiving and blocking skills. The performance in St. Petersburg earned Smith an invitation to the Senior Bowl, where he put together a solid week.
Indianapolis Colts: Rasul Douglas, CB, West Virginia
The Colts could use more cornerback talent.
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. He 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
