101. Green Bay Packers: Dante Pettis, WR, Washington

The Packers could use multiple young receivers. Here's another target they've shown a lot of interest in.

Pettis (6-0, 186) was excellent in 2017 with 62 receptions for 721 yards and seven touchdowns. He also notched three punt-return touchdowns during the season, making for nine in his career. That success meant Pettis surpassed DeSean Jackson to be the Pac-12's all-time leader in punt returns for a touchdown. Sources say that Pettis is a smooth receiver who is fluid, fast, quick-handed, and elusive after the catch. One scout said that Pettis reminds him of Isaac Bruce. Other sources don't like Pettis at all and have him graded well into the third day of the 2018 NFL Draft. Pettis was the Huskies' No. 2 receiver to John Ross in 2016 and was a solid contributor. Pettis totaled 53 receptions for 822 yards with 15 touchdowns for Washington that season.

102. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tony Brown, CB, Alabama

The Bucs could use more youth at corner, and here's a talented athlete to develop.

Brown totaled 19 tackles and one pass broken up in 2017. Other corners who aren't as physically gifted as Brown played above him at Alabama, but the 6-foot, 199-pounder has a nice skill set with big size and excellent speed. At the combine, Brown put up a 4.35-second time in the 40-yard dash and looked excellent in the field work.

Brown can be a gambler who lacks discipline, and that is the issue that led to other corners with less physical talent starting over him. Brown has a ton of upside to develop for the NFL, and even if he doesn't develop into being a starting cornerback, he could be a valuable special teams contributor. Brown played well for Alabama to close out the 2016 season. He totaled 32 tackles with two interceptions that year and looked like he was just scratching the surface. Brown was a backup in 2015, plus was suspended briefly for fighting with a teammate.

103. Houston Texans: Armani Watts, S, Texas A&M

Houston could use a strong safety to go with Tyrann Mathieu.

Watts had 87 tackles with five passes broken up, four interceptions and two forced fumbles in 2017. While Watts doesn't have good size or speed, he is an instinctive defender who comes up with a lot of big plays. Watts (5-10, 202), however, struggles in man coverage, so he has limitations for how he can be used in the NFL. In 2016, Watts made a lot of clutch plays for the Aggies. He had 56 tackles with six for a loss, two forced fumbles, three passes broken up and two interceptions on the year. Watts totaled 126 tackles with two passes broken up and one interception in 2015.

104. Indianapolis Colts: DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Penn State

Phillip Dorsett was a bust, and Donte Moncrief left in free agency. The Colts could use more receiving talent across from T.Y. Hilton.

Hamilton totaled 53 receptions for 857 yards and nine touchdowns for 2017. At the Senior Bowl, he displayed that he is a good route-runner capable of generating separation and has generally reliable hands. Hamilton (6-0, 202) also contributed as a junior (34-506-1), sophomore (45-580-6) and freshman (82-899-2).

105. Chicago Bears: Toby Weathersby, OT, LSU

The Bears take some offensive line depth.

Weathersby (6-4, 317) played well for LSU. He helped the Tigers break in some new linemen during 2017. Weathersby is a better run blocker than pass protector. Moving to right tackle or inside to guard could be the best plan for him in the NFL. Weathersby was a solid right tackle at times for for the Tigers in 2016.

106. Denver Broncos: Jeff Holland, DE, Auburn

The Broncos could use some pass-rushing depth.

Holland (6-1, 249) impressed team sources in 2017 with a strong season as an edge rusher for Auburn. He doesn't have good size for the NFL, but he has some speed and athleticism on the edge with a nose for the quarterback. In 2017, Holland collected 45 tackles with 13 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, four forced fumbles and a pass batted. He made some clutch sacks for Auburn. For the NFL, Holland could fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker. In a 4-3 defense, his role might be limited to being a situational pass-rusher, given his size.

107. New York Jets: Alex Cappa, OT, Humboldt State

The Jets grab some tackle depth.

Coming from a Division II school, Cappa (6-5, 299) did well enough to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl. He has the size to play tackle in the NFL, and he held his own going against the better competition in Mobile. As a pro, Cappa could start out as a swing tackle backup while he develops his strength and technique before competing for a starting role. Given the weak tackle class but huge demand across the league, Cappa could go on the second day of the 2018 NFL Draft.

108. New York Giants: Kentavius Street, DE, N.C. State

The Giants could use a few edge defenders.

Street has a thick build with speed and athleticism. Sources say that the 6-foot-2, 280-pounder is going to impress in the pre-draft workouts as they hear he could be a workout warrior. Street had a strong week at the East-West Shrine to help his draft grade. In college though, he didn't produce up to his skill set despite having Bradley Chubb getting double teams on the other side. Street also had talent next to him in the form of two future NFL defensive tackles. In 2017, Street totaled 3.5 sacks, 38 tackles for 6.5 tackles for a loss and three passes batted. He had 5.5 sacks with 30 tackles and nine for a loss as a junior.

109. Washington Redskins: Daurice Fountain, WR, Northern Iowa

The Redskins could use a some receiver depth.

At the East-West Shrine, Fountain (6-2, 208) was the star of the East practice with impressive performances on all three days. He had scouts buzzing across the league. His name was being passed along to scouts, directors, and general managers who weren't in St. Petersburg to check out his tape - teams split their college scouting staffs between the East-West Shrine and the NFLPA all-star game. Fountain was very good in the one-on-ones, showing the quickness, body control, and route-running to get separation from the cornerbacks. He also made plays in the team scrimmage while impressing in the red zone. Surprisingly, Fountain did not receive a combine invitation. For 2017, he totaled 66 receptions for 943 yards and 12 touchdowns.

110. Oakland Raiders: Jerome Baker, OLB, Ohio State

The Raiders could use more talent at linebacker.

Baker recorded 72 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble and three passes broken up in 2017. Entering the season, there was a lot of media hype about Baker (6-1, 225), but in speaking with scouts who did advance work on the 2018 class, they weren't overly impressed with him. They said that Baker ran around more blocks than he took on and had the speed to get away with that against average offensive lines in college. They thought he was more of a second-day- to early third-day-level player. They said Baker is a good player, but not complete and not anything exceptional. They felt Baker was a good, solid, instinctive guy, who in the right system, will play in the NFL, but over time, is a dime a dozen.

After Darron Lee was taken in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Baker won the job to be Lee's replacement as Ohio State's fast run-and-chase linebacker. He had a quality debut with 83 tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks and two interceptions.

Baker is a highly athletic linebacker with sideline-to-sideline speed. His fit comes as a Will - weak side - linebacker in a 4-3 defense or being a run-and-chase inside linebacker in a 3-4.

111. Los Angeles Rams: Akrum Wadley, RB, Iowa

The Rams could use a backup running back and one who can contribute in the passing game.

Wadley averaged 4.4 yards per carry in 2017 for 1,109 yards with 10 touchdowns. He also had 28 receptions for 353 yards and three touchdowns. In 2016, he averaged 6.4 yards per carry for 1,081 yards with 10 touchdowns. Wadley also showed receiving skill with 36 receptions for 315 yards and three touchdowns that season.

Team sources have said that Wadley has impressed them and is a talented running back. The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder could use more weight on his frame, but he is dangerous with the ball in his hands.

112. Cincinnati Bengals: Dalton Schultz, TE, Stanford

Given Tyler Eifert's injury history, the Bengals could use more depth at tight end.

Scouts have told me that they like Schultz and see him as a do-it-all Y tight end similar to Jason Witten. They say that Schultz is a good route-runner, excellent at catching the ball, and a really good blocker. In 2017, Stanford used Schultz's blocking skill to help open holes for Bryce Love. Schultz also made 22 receptions for 212 yards and three touchdowns for the year despite the Cardinal's ground-based offense. The 6-foot-6, 242-pounder is a sleeper prospect who team evaluators really like.

113. Denver Broncos: Tyquan Lewis, DE, Ohio State

The Broncos could use some defensive line depth.

Lewis had 20 tackles, seven sacks, 9.5 tackles for a loss, two passes batted and two forced fumbles in 2017. He was part of a rotation at defensive end with Sam Hubbard and Nick Bosa. Lewis is a solid player, although sources view him as stiff and heavy-legged. He put together a solid week at the Senior Bowl and looked good as a sub package pass-rusher for lining up at defensive tackle over guards. Gaining some weight to be a three-technique could be the best fit for Lewis in the NFL. In 2016, he totaled 29 tackles with eight sacks, three forced fumbles, 10.5 tackles for a loss and two passes batted.

114. Cleveland Browns: Simmie Cobbs Jr., WR, Indiana

The Browns grab some more wide receiver talent.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Cobbs is a physical force as a receiver. He has mismatch size to go with good quickness, route-running, solid hands, body control, and the ability to win 50-50 passes. In 2017, Cobbs made 72 catches for 841 yards with eight touchdowns. He missed the 2016 season with an ankle injury. Cobbs averaged 17.3 yards per reception in 2015 while totaling 60 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns.

115. Chicago Bears: Jordan Whitehead, S, Pittsburgh

The Bears cut Quintin Demps and could use some safety depth.

Whitehead (5-11, 190) is a physical safety who has good instincts. He broke out as a freshman with 108 tackles, six passes broken up, one interception and one forced fumble. In 2016, Whitehead had 65 tackles with two breakups and an interception while missing multiple games with an arm injury. He hurt his draft stock with a suspension to open the 2017 season and split time between running back and safety over the course of the year. At the former position in 2017, Whitehead totaled 22 carries for 142 yards and two touchdowns. He recorded 60 tackles with four passes broken up and one interception at the latter on the season.

116. Dallas Cowboys: Nyheim Hines, RB, N.C. State

The Cowboys grab a fast running back to back up Ezekiel Elliott.

Hines is an ultra-fast back who produced a lot of big plays for N.C. State in 2017. The 5-foot-8, 198-pounder a broke out on the season, averaging 5.6 yards per carry for 1,112 yards with 12 touchdowns. He had 26 receptions for 152 yards as well. Hines didn't contribute much as a runner before 2017, but he did have 43 receptions for 525 yards as a sophomore. On special teams, Hines averaged 25 yards per kick return over three years with two touchdowns. He averaged 11.3 yards per punt return with a touchdown in 2017.

Hines would fit best in the NFL as a change-of-pace receiving back who also contributes as a returner. He could be a nice speed weapon for an offense. Hines showed his game-breaking speed with a ridiculous 4.38-second time in the 40-yard dash at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.

117. Detroit Lions: Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays State

The Lions could use a couple of interior defensive linemen to run different fronts and rotate with A'Shawn Robinson.

Shepherd (6-3, 310) was one of the Division II products who did well enough to earn a Senior Bowl invitation. In Mobile, he held his own before getting injured. In 2017, Shepherd totaled 38 tackles with 12.5 for a loss and four sacks. He had 61 tackles with three sacks in 2016 and 69 tackles with three sacks in 2015. Shepherd could play tackle in a 4-3 and or five-technique defensive end in a 3-4 defense. At the combine, Shepherd put together a solid workout.

118. Baltimore Ravens: Chris Herndon, TE, Miami

The Ravens could use some young competition at tight end.

As a senior, Herndon made 40 catches for 477 yards with four touchdowns. He played in a lot of two-tight end sets over the past few seasons. Herndon (6-4, 252) was a favorite of the Hurricanes' coaching staff, and even though they had a more talented player in David Njoku in 2016, they still gave Herndon plenty of playing time. That season, Herndon made 28 receptions for 334 yards and two touchdowns. He caught 18 passes for 237 yards and a score in 2015. Herndon didn't impress at the Senior Bowl.

119. Los Angeles Chargers: Dane Cruikshank, CB, Arizona

The Chargers could use some cornerback depth.

Cruikshank helped himself with a fast 40 time at the combine and was impressive in the field workouts. Given his combination of size, speed, and senior-year production, he could be a steal in the 2018 NFL Draft. Cruikshank played well for Arizona in 2017, notching 75 tackles with five passes broken up, one forced fumble and three interceptions. After the season, Cruikshank had a good week of practice at the East-West Shrine.

120. Seattle Seahawks: Austin Corbett, OT, Nevada

The Seahawks grab more offensive line talent.

Corbett (6-4, 310) was a versatile blocker for Nevada for four years. As a redshirt freshman and sophomore, Corbett was Nevada's starter at left tackle. For his junior year, he moved to right tackle, but was back at left tackle as a senior. Given his lack of height and length, Corbett looks like a better fit as a center in the NFL.

121. Buffalo Bills: Greg Senat, OT, Wagner

The Bills grab offensive line talent.

Some sources felt that Senat was the best of the offensive linemen at the East-West Shrine. The 6-foot-7, 300-pounder has strength and surprising movement skills. As one scout described him, "Senat is a fire hydrant that can move." After playing at Wagner, Senat has shown the skill to make the jump in competition.

122. Kansas City Chiefs: Parry Nickerson, CB, Tulane

The Chiefs traded Marcus Peters away and acquired Kendall Fuller and David Amerson. Fuller is a nickel, while Amerson is a journeyman. Here's a potential long-term starter on the outside.

Team sources say they think that Nickerson (5-10, 182) could easily be a third- or fourth-rounder. In 2017, Nickerson totaled 55 tackles with eight breakups and six interceptions. He showed nice ball skills in other season, including nine breakups with four picks as a junior and six interceptions with six breakups in 2014. He needs to gain weight and get stronger for taking on NFL receivers, but Nickerson has some speed, which he illustrated at the combine with an electric 40 time of 4.32 seconds. In the field drills, Nickerson looked fast and fluid. He fits as a slot cornerback competitor.

123. Miami Dolphins: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State

The Dolphins grab a backup quarterback for Adam Gase.

Falk completed 67 percent of his passes in 2017 for 3,593 yards with 30 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Some team sources are intrigued with Falk (6-3, 214) because they like his pocket-passing potential and accuracy. In speaking with scouts, they say that Falk has an above-average arm, but his accuracy is his best strength. Falk has some issues seeing coverage and will throw into it. Falk is also considered a thin-framed player who will need to add weight for the NFL. He lacks escapability and mobility, but sources compared Falk to Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Falk completed 70 percent of his passes in 2016 for 4,468 yards with 38 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. In 2015, Falk completed 69 percent of his passes for 4,561 yards with 38 touchdowns and eight interceptions. As a freshman, he completed 64 percent of his throws for 1,859 yards with 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

124. Kansas City Chiefs: John Kelly, RB, Tennessee

The Chiefs grab a backup for Kareem Hunt. Sources say Kansas City really likes Kelly.

Kelly (5-10, 216) is a tough runner, but he has a limited skill set for the NFL. The junior averaged 4.1 yards per carry in 2017 for 778 yards with nine touchdowns. He also had 37 receptions for 299 yards. Kelly put together a strong start to the 2017 season before Tennessee struggled in the final two months of the year. In the NFL, Kelly could be a quality backup and rotational back, but he lacks the skill set to be a three-down starter.

125. Tennessee Titans: Oren Burks, ILB, Vanderbilt

The Titans could use some youth at inside linebacker.

Sources from multiple teams have told me that Burks (6-3, 233) impressed them in 2017. They like his combination of size, quickness and instincts. Burks recorded 82 tackles with seven tackles for a loss, one interception and three passes broken up in 2017. In 2016, he formed a potent linebacking tandem with Zach Cunningham. Burks totaled 59 tackles with 3.5 sacks and six passes broken up that season. He showed some coverage and ball skills throughout his career, having made six breakups as a sophomore and seven as a freshman.

126. Atlanta Falcons: Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana

The Falcons grab some tight end depth.

In 2017, Thomas totaled 25 receptions for 376 yards and five touchdowns. He has some quickness and athletic ability as a receiver, but will need work as a blocker. The 6-foot-3, 256-pound Thomas turned in a mixed week at the Senior Bowl.

127. New Orleans Saints: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson

The Saints grab a vertical receiving threat.

In 2017, Cain recorded 58 receptions for 734 yards and six touchdowns. He didn't play as well as in 2016, but that likely stemmed from a few factors. Clemson spread the ball around in 2017 while not giving Cain a lot of targets due to playing a first-year starter at quarterback. Team sources were disappointed in Cain's play as well, including some ugly dropped passes. They labeled Cain as a one-trick pony deep receiver who is going to need development for the NFL. In 2016, despite catching 38 passes for 724 yards with nine touchdowns on a number of big plays, Cain (6-2, 202) didn't get as much attention among the Tigers' offensive weapons. His speed was illustrated by his average of 19 yards per reception. He averaged 17 yards per catch as a freshman (34-582-5).

128. San Francisco 49ers: Kyzir White, S, West Virginia

Considering both of the 49ers' safeties could leave in free agency, San Francisco could use two safeties from the 2018 NFL Draft. Here's a strong safety who they've shown interest in.

White (6-2, 216) has good size to him to be a strong safety in the NFL, plus had a solid 2017 season. The senior totaled 94 tackles with four passes broken up, two forced fumbles, one sack and three interceptions on the year. As a junior, he had 58 stops with five breakups, three sacks and zero picks. White's strong play earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl, and he had a solid week of practice in Mobile.

129. Jacksonville Jaguars: Skai Moore, OLB, South Carolina

The Jaguars grab a replacement for Paul Posluzny.

Moore (6-2, 226) is a good player who would be higher on this list if it weren't for size and durability issues. He had 93 tackles with eight for a loss, two sacks, two passes broken up and three interceptions in 2017. Moore missed the 2016 season after suffering a neck injury that required surgery. In 2015, he had 111 tackles with four interceptions and four passes batted. Moore recorded 93 tackles as a sophomore and three interceptions after notching 56 tackles with four picks as a freshman.

130. Philadelphia Eagles: Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan

The Eagles grab a potential right tackle of the future.

There were some reports in the media about Okorafor (6-6, 330) as an early-round tackle prospect. After speaking with some team sources, they weren't enthusiastic about Okorafor. Some sources felt that while Okorafor has some athletic ability, he is a very soft offensive lineman, and they think he is going to get pushed around in the NFL. Those team sources were grading Okorafor on the third day of the 2018 NFL Draft and were against their teams selecting him.

131. Miami Dolphins: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon

The Dolphins grab some running back depth.

In 2017, Freeman averaged 6.0 yards per carry for 1,475 yards with 14 touchdowns. The senior caught 14 receptions for 164 yards as well. Freeman was even better as a sophomore, averaging 6.5 yards per carry for 1,836 yards with 17 touchdowns. He added 26 receptions for 348 yards and two scores as well. The big power back Freeman (5-11, 229) could be a first-and second-down workhorse in the ground game.

132. Philadelphia Eagles: Avonte Maddox, CB, Pittsburgh

The Eagles could use some cornerback depth as Ronald Darby may not get re-signed.

Maddox had some good moments at the East-West Shrine to help himself. For the NFL, he will have to compete as a nickel or slot cornerback. As a senior, Maddox totaled 27 tackles with 11 breakups, two sacks and four sacks. He had 49 tackles as a junior, 75 as a sophomore and 32 as a freshman. Maddox also had a total of 23 passes broken up and six interceptions over those three seasons.

133. Green Bay Packers: Uchenna Nwosu, 3-4OLB, USC

The Packers grab a rotational edge rusher.

Nwosu (6-2, 240) enjoyed a good 2017 season for the Trojans to help his draft grade. He had 75 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks, 13 passes batted and an interception for the year. Nwosu has some speed and athleticism off the edge with good instincts and feel. In the ground game and in the pass rush though, he can struggle with the length and strength of offensive tackles, leading to him getting covered up. Nwosu is a pursuit outside linebacker for the NFL and would fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

134. Arizona Cardinals: Derrick Nnadi, DT, Florida State

The Cardinals grab some nose tackle talent.

In 2017, Nnadi notched 53 tackles with 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble, 10 tackles for a loss and a pass batted. He played well, causing disruption at the point of attack. Nnadi (6-1, 317) has good strength and quickness, but also faces some size limitations. He would fit well on the inside of a 4-3 defense as a nose tackle.

135. Los Angeles Rams: Brett Toth, OT, Army

The Rams could use a young tackle to develop behind Andrew Whitworth.

Toth (6-6, 305) has NFL size and was impressive at the East-West Shrine. His strong play earned him a lot of interviews from teams. Similar to Greg Senat, Toth has size and athleticism to compete on either side of the line. Toth could try to make a roster as a swing tackle backup with developmental potential.

136. Los Angeles Rams: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, 3-4OLB, Oklahoma

The Rams need more edge-rushing talent.

Okoronkwo (6-1, 243) is a fast edge rusher who is adept at putting heat on the quarterback. As a senior, Okoronkwo racked up eight sacks with 76 tackles, 17.5 tackles for a loss, two passes batted and three forced fumbles. He broke out in 2016 with 71 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss, five sacks and two forced fumbles. Okoronkwo's best fit in the NFL would come as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

137. Dallas Cowboys: Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford

The Cowboys grab some defensive line depth and competition.

Phillips (6-3, 303) turned himself into an NFL prospect with a tremendous senior season. He had 103 tackles with 17 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles on the year. In speaking with a director of college scouting who scouted Stanford, they felt that Phillips fits as a mid-rounder. They said that Phillips struggles with double teams and has limitations as a pass-rusher for the NFL that push him down, but they think Phillips is a good run stuffer for the next level. They said his game is similar to former Stanford nose tackle David Parry. Others will probably grade Phillips higher. As a junior, Phillips had 46 tackles with 9.5 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks. He missed his sophomore season with an injury after backing up as a freshman.
