Final PFF Draft Board: Top 300 prospects of 2017


The final version of the Pro Football Focus Draft Board is here, providing a look at the top 300 players available for the 2017 NFL Draft. While the PFF production grades are used to fuel the process, our analysts are hard at work deciphering each player’s strengths and weaknesses and looking for added context for their production. Here’s a look at how the prospects stack up heading into draft week.

1. Myles Garrett, Edge, Texas A&M

Myles Garrett is the unquestioned top edge prospect in this class. The biggest criticism I’ve seen of Garrett is that he didn’t record enough sacks in SEC play. If you don’t think he was productive against the SEC the past three seasons, however, you simply didn’t watch the games. Garrett is a freak of nature physically who is still only scratching the surface of his potential. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

2. Jonathan Allen, Defensive Interior, Alabama

Allen’s game film separates him even amongst this strong defensive tackle crop. Equally as comfortable battling double-teams as he is running the arc off the edge, Allen is the kind of defensive lineman coaches dream of. He displays classic stack-and-shed technique on the interior, using his length and range to eliminate runs into either of his two gaps. Coupled with explosion off the ball and athleticism to work in space, Allen displays a complete skill-set on a consistent basis. Only news of arthritis in both shoulders is likely to facilitate a wait on draft day. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

3. Derek Barnett, Edge, Tennessee

Athletically, Barnett is the antithesis of Garrett. Production-wise, he’s the only player in the class that can compare to Garrett over the course of their careers. Barnett’s 37 combined sacks and hits this past season were far and away the most in college football. He also has 20 total sacks in SEC play the past two seasons. The only concern is his top-tier athleticism, but with the way Barnett wins—with power and hands—that’s not a big issue for me. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

4. Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

Whether we’re talking measurables or on-field production, Lattimore has established himself as the top cornerback on our board in the 2017 Draft class. 2016 may have been his only full season as a starter, but it was a season that saw him allow just 18 receptions, and an NFL passer rating on just 31.9. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

5. Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama

Foster’s all-around athleticism is complemented nicely by his instincts, both against the run and pass. He led the country in run-stop percentage in 2016, making 52 run stops while missing just five tackles. Also a strong player in coverage, he gave up an average of just 6.6 yards per catch last season. Foster of course made headlines by being kicked out of the combine after an argument with a hospital worker during medical checks, which will likely make his off-field the biggest concern about him for many teams. Those issues aside, he is a complete player and could still be selected in the top 10. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

6. Jamal Adams, S, LSU

Adams’ 4.56-second combine 40-yard dash doesn’t do his playing speed justice, as his instincts and all-around athleticism allow him to make plays most safeties simply can’t. His change of directions skills look like those of a cornerback, thus giving him the versatility to not only play either safety position, but man the slot on nickel and dime situations as well. He gave up just 20 receptions on 39 throws into his coverage in 2016, and yielded just two-combined touchdowns in the past three seasons at LSU. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

7. Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

Davis has been phenomenally productive over his career at Western Michigan, and will now look to translate that strong play to the NFL. In the three years we’ve graded college football, Davis has finished as a top-10 receiver in every single year. He isn’t the biggest receiver, or the fastest, but he’s one of the most impressive ones because of his fantastic route-running ability and strong hands. Davis does all the little things you want a receiver to do, whether it’s adjusting his routes based on the coverage, using his hands to subtly create separation, or knowing when a big hit is coming and positioning himself to absorb it. While his lack of size and speed may prevent him from being a No. 1 option right away in the NFL, he can instantly contribute as a second option for a team and could very well develop into a high-level No. 1 receiver. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

8. Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State

Hooker is a unique prospect because, while his flaws are readily apparent against the run, his range, instincts and ball skills on the back end are rare. Teams in need of a true single-high free safety will love his seven interceptions from 2016—many of them the highlight variety—as well as the fact that he was the primary defender on just two pass completions of over 20 yards. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

9. Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State

Cook has outstanding vision and patience to allow blocks to develop in zone-blocking schemes. His acceleration when he makes a decision is elite, and he is one of the best at making defenders miss. Cook is capable of overcoming poor blocking, and he led the nation with 99 total missed tackles forced last season. He needs to vastly-improve his ball security and in pass protection, but his big-play ability outweighs those enough to keep the top spot. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

10. Solomon Thomas, Edge, Stanford

Thomas’ true position in the NFL is still up in the air, and he could very well play a number of different techniques depending on the situation. He was most often utilized on the interior, with 90.6 percent of his snaps coming inside the tackles a season ago. But at 272 pounds, he might have to play on the edge in the NFL. Still, no player in college football graded out better against the run than Thomas. He also has the freakish athleticism at his size that could translate as a pass-rusher. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

11. Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

Williams capped off an impressive season with a performance for the ages in the National Championship game, propelling Clemson to the title. That game looked to be a sign of just what kind of weapon Williams could be at the next level. Nobody in this class can win at the catch point better than Williams can. He’s big and strong, has a massive catch radius and really strong hands. All of that combined means that a quarterback needs to just get the ball in his area, and Williams will have a good shot of hauling it in. His 3.35 yards-per-route-run average in 2016 ranked inside the top 10 among all receivers. His lack of high-end speed may be an issue for some teams, but he’s so good at the catch point that it might not matter. Williams should be able to step onto the field in the NFL and contribute instantly as a receiver that you can just throw the ball near and rely on him to make a big play. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

12. Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU

One of the top playmakers among the defensive backs in this draft class, White is going to excite whatever team drafts him with his ability to contribute on both defense and special teams from Day 1. Coming off his best season in college, White racked up two interceptions and 12 pass breakups from the 61 passes thrown into his coverage. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

13, Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina

A one-year starter, Trubisky showed good short-area accuracy, pocket presence, and the ability to make big-time throws outside the numbers. He can still improve his blitz recognition and deep ball, but his impressive one-year sample has pushed him to the top of our quarterback board. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

14. Carl Lawson, Edge, Auburn

The pass-rushers in the SEC last season kept a good number of quarterbacks up late on Friday nights. Lawson registered nine sacks, 13 hits, and 42 hurries in 2016 on only 364 pass-rushing snaps. Lawson wins the edge on offensive tackles as much as anyone in this class and makes them worry about getting out of their stance quickly with his first step. He pairs that up with some of the strongest hands I’ve seen in the class that keep him in control of interactions. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

15. Jordan Willis, Edge, Kansas State

As owner of the highest overall grade of any edge player in the country a season ago, Willis absolutely dominated the Big 12. Then he went to Indianapolis and put up the most impressive combine performance of any edge prospect in the class. So if you’re looking for a player who checks the production and athleticism boxes, Willis is your guy. His biggest issue was level of competition faced. The Kansas State defensive end looked far more pedestrian in one-on-one’s at the Senior Bowl, but come actual game time in Mobile, and Willis registered two sacks and three hurries. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

16. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

As confirmed by his near-record-breaking performance in the 3-cone drill at the NFL Combine, McCaffrey possesses elite change-of-direction and acceleration skills, and can make cuts with little loss of speed. He shows good vision and patience as a runner, setting up his blocks before hitting gaps hard. His versatility as a receiver can create mismatches and will allow an offensive coordinator to be creative with personnel groupings and alignments. Some have concerns about whether he can handle a full workload, but after 745 total touches the past two seasons, he’s proven that he can. If anything, the concern should be how big his workload was in college. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

17. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

One of the most difficult evaluations in the class, Watson can make the necessary throws to be successful at the next level. His ability to work through progressions and maneuver the pocket, however, present big questions he has to answer. Watson usually saves his best work for crunch time, either down the stretch or late in games, and that’s the part that pushes him back up draft boards despite concerns about his game translating at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

18. O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama 

O.J. Howard owns a unique blend of size and athleticism that is simply coveted in today’s NFL at the tight end position. Howard was PFF’s top-graded college tight end this past season, and it’s tough to find any major red flags in his game. He’s an athletic mismatch, capable of taking advantage of smaller defensive backs while having the speed and quickness to consistently separate from linebackers; he has sure hands, as he’s recorded just six total drops over the last three seasons. Howard has also graded positively as a run blocker in each of the last three seasons, including 2016 when he earned the highest run-blocking grade among tight ends. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

19. John Ross, WR, Washington

After a combine in which he set the record for fastest 40-yard dash (4.22 seconds), there may not be a more talked-about receiver than Ross. When you watch him on tape, the pure speed is instantly evident. Ross can absolutely blow by any corner that stands across from him. But he’s more than just a one-speed deep threat. He has shown he can run both short and intermediate routes, and run them well. Ross makes good, quick breaks and doesn’t slow down or give them away with movement. He has strong hands and rarely drops the ball. Once the ball is in his hands, he can see the field very well and can make defenders miss. The biggest knock on him is his size (5-foot-11, 188 pounds) and an injury history that covers both knees. If he can stay healthy against NFL-sized players, Ross could develop into a true number one option fairly quickly. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

20. Haason Reddick, Edge, Temple

Haason Reddick is another player who may not end up on the edge at the next level, but this time for different reasons. Reddick’s athleticism and size could end up moving him to an off-ball linebacker spot at the next level, where he would obviously be a devastating weapon as a blitzer. Reddick was utilized in a true 3-4 outside linebacker role at Temple, dropping into coverage on 74 of his 322 passing snaps last season. That means that his 43 QB pressures last season came on only 248 pass rushes, a ridiculous rate. Reddick is the ultimate Swiss Army knife for defensive coordinators in the NFL. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

21. Malik McDowell, Defensive Interior, Michigan State

McDowell is somewhat polarizing as a prospect. In conjunction with having to address some off-field concerns, McDowell does not always appear ideally suited to a position on the interior. His desire to mix it up with multiple blockers against power running schemes appears minimal at best; his skill-set is pure finesse. Players with McDowell’s athleticism, however—capable of shutting down plays deep into the backfield—are always in high demand. Additionally, he possesses the kind of refinement essential to succeeding in the NFL, displaying excellent hand placement and a fully-stocked pass-rush repertoire. McDowell’s capacity for collapsing the pocket will likely see him selected on Day 1. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

22. Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

As much as anyone in this class, Ramczyk has rare feet and movement skills for a big man. If he dropped 50 pounds, it wouldn’t surprise me if he could become an NFL-caliber tight end. The Wisconsin tackle also has the elite production to back up his hype; he was the highest-graded FBS tackle in 2016, allowing 12 QB pressures all season long. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

23. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

With Fournette’s combination of size and speed, he is an athletic freak in many ways. His 2015 season remains one of our highest-graded among runners over the past three years. There are some small concerns, though, on how well he can create on his own if behind a bad offensive line, how much of an impact he can have in the passing game, and if the ankle injury was the only reason for his lessened effectiveness in 2016. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

24. Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan

Regarded as undersized by a lot of people, Lewis has been one of the top cornerbacks in the nation over the past two seasons. Versatile enough to be a starter either on the outside or in the slot, he has allowed just four touchdowns from the 186 passes thrown into his coverage over the past three seasons, coming away with six interceptions and 28 pass breakups in that span. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

25. Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

An ideal fit in zone coverage, Humphrey is at his best when the play is in front of him. After allowing 16.3 and 17.4 yards per catch over the past two years, his big weakness is covering downfield. He does read and react very well, though, making him an outstanding coverage defender on underneath routes, and is still a likely first-round draft pick. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

26. Tim Williams, Edge, Alabama

On a snap-for-snap basis, Williams has been the most effective pass-rusher in the nation over the past three seasons. The issue is that even over those three seasons, he’s only accumulated 685 snaps (485 as a pass-rusher). While he’s notched a ridiculous 22 sacks, 19 hits, and 83 hurries on those plays, it’s still concerning that he couldn’t see the field more. While Williams looks like one of the most athletic edge rushers in the class on tape, his combine performance was lackluster. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

27. Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky

Maybe the cleanest prospect in the draft, Lamp has multiple years of top-notch grading at left tackle to back it up. While level of competition is always a concern, Lamp allowed one total QB pressure against the ferocious pass-rushing threats from Alabama in Week 2. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

28. Taco Charlton, Edge, Michigan

Charlton is a physical specimen who simply overpowered college offensive tackles on the edge last season. Standing a legit 6-foot-6, 277 pounds, Charlton was a forced to be reckoned with as a bull-rusher and somehow had one of the most effective spin moves in the country at that size. He registered 18 combined sacks and hits last year, despite rushing the passer only 251 times. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

29. Patrick Mahomes II, QB, Texas Tech

Mahomes has an incredible feel for making plays outside of the flow of the offense, and when combined with his special arm talent, that allows him to make any throw from any platform—a best-case scenario for Mahomes is tantalizing. The problem is the same feel for making plays also leads to a number of poor decisions with the football, and a prospective team has to find the balance of keeping Mahomes’ aggressiveness and natural playmaking ability while harnessing him to make good decisions within the flow of the offense. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

30. Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt

Cunningham has the combination of athleticism, size, and physicality needed to be an excellent every-down linebacker in the NFL. He excels at taking on blocks, and finished fourth among all FBS inside linebackers in 2016 in run-stop percentage despite missing 13 tackles. He also displays impressive skills in man coverage, as he has the speed and strength to stay on the hip of tight ends even on downfield routes. He should also be selected before the end of Day 1. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

31. David Njoku, TE, Miami

If you’ve ever wished that your favorite team had Jordan Reed on it, now is your chance to get him, because David Njoku is his clone. Njoku isn’t overly elusive, but he’s extremely effective with the ball in his hands due to a combination of his size, top-end speed and a willingness to just punch a defense in the mouth. He averaged 11.2 yards after the catch in 2016, the most by all draft-eligible tight ends by over a yard. There are concerns with Njoku’s ability as a run blocker—he graded out in the middle of the pack, and can get too tall while moving laterally—but his receiving ability makes him a Day 1 starter and someone you want to feed the ball too often. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

32. Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

Much more than just a combine and Senior Bowl-wonder, Melifonwu’s film largely backs up his outstanding draft-prep season. He flashes impressive range for a player his size, but is also excellent against the run in the box because of his ability to square up and finish tackles consistently (ninth among all FBS safeties in 2016 in run-stop percentage). He is a matchup-breaker because of his size, speed and physicality in coverage, and gave up just 40 total receiving yards in his final five college games. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

33. Sidney Jones, CB, Washington

Jones would be even higher on this list were it not for the injury that ruined his pro day. At his best in press man, Jones didn’t allow a single touchdown on throws into his coverage in 2016. He plays the ball well in the air, too, with nine interceptions and 16 pass breakups over the past three seasons. While the injury will push him down draft boards, someone is likely to get a steal once he recovers. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

34. Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma

There’s no question that Joe Mixon is a very talented football player. He outperformed his counterpart, Samaje Perine, this season as he pried playing time away. In addition to being a dynamic runner, Mixon also was a very productive receiver. Strictly on the field, he has the potential to be a No. 1 running back with a great combination of size and agility, and is worthy of a second-round draft pick. However, his assault charge in 2014 raises questions on whether he should be drafted at all. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

35. Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State

The pure stats are outstanding for Conley, who allowed a passer rating of only 14.0 on throws into his coverage, best in the nation. He was aided by some poor quarterback play, but he graded well and showed the ability to succeed in multiple situations, whether player press, off, man or zone. He also showed well athletically at the NFL Combine, making him yet another impressive combination of size, speed, and production at the cornerback position. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

36. Charles Harris, Edge, Missouri

Harris is the undisputed king of the spin move in this class, and has some freakish balance for a 253-pound man. His 28 combined sacks plus hits in 2016 were the fifth-most of any edge player, and he has a penchant for winning quickly. His poor combine will drop him down some boards, but the pass-rushing production is there in spades. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

37. Adoree’ Jackson, CB, USC

Arguably the best athlete among defensive backs in this draft class, Jackson possesses the speed to chase plays down from the other side of the field if he has to. It’s concerning that he allowed seven touchdowns in coverage last year, but his ability to contribute on defense and special teams from Day 1, and his ability to turn defense into offense, should excite plenty of teams. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

38. Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida

Davis created quite the buzz earlier this week by running a 4.56 40-yard dash and jumping a 38.5-inch vertical at his pro day. This athleticism shows up frequently on film, as he is an explosive player in all phases. His biggest issue is tackling, as he tends to play out of control and miss too often, as represented by his ranking of 209 in tackling efficiency among FBS inside linebackers in 2016. His inconsistencies put his value on day two, but because of his athleticism he could very well hear his name called toward the end of the first round. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

39. Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson

Allowing an NFL passer rating of 40.6 in 2016, Tankersley was one of the top-graded cornerbacks in football for the National Champion Clemson Tigers. Allowing just one touchdown and recording four interceptions and nine pass breakups, the only big concern with Tankersley is that he can be a little too physical in coverage, something he’ll need to improve upon to avoid being heavily penalized in the NFL. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

40. Teez Tabor, CB, Florida

On-field production saw Tabor ranked close to Ohio State’s Lattimore early in the pre-draft process, but few players were as disappointing as Tabor when it came to measurables. After recently clocking at 4.7 in the 40-yard dash at the Florida pro day, his stock appears to be on the way down, despite allowing NFL passer ratings of just 33.0 and 41.3 over the past two seasons, respectively. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

41. T.J. Watt, Edge, Wisconsin

The biggest concern with Watt is whether or not he’s a one-year wonder. Physically, though, there’s not much he can’t do. At 6-foot-4, 252 pounds, Watt put up fantastic explosive and change-of-direction numbers at the combine. That meshes with what we saw of him at Wisconsin, where he was arguably the most impressive of anyone in this class at closing on ball carriers in space. He’s still raw as a pass-rusher, as a good deal of his 56 QB pressures a season ago came unblocked, but the ability is there. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

42. Justin Evans, S, Texas A&M

Evans is worth an early Day 2 selection because of his excellent coverage skills, but his tackling is a serious concern. He finished 2016 just 316th in tackling efficiency at the position with 21 missed tackles, but he defended 12 total passes while giving up a QB rating of just 53.1 on throws into his coverage. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

43. Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma

Westbrook was one of if not the most productive receiver in college football last season, winning the Biletnikoff Award as well as getting an invite to the Heisman Trophy ceremony as a nominee. While it’s easy to dismiss Westbrook as a product of the wide-open Big 12 offense of Oklahoma, he’s much more than that. Westbrook is more than just fast, he’s incredibly quick out of his breaks and knows how to run every route. He knows how to set up routes with double moves and head fakes, and once he has a step on a defender they probably aren’t catching him. He’s got great hands, and is very impressive after the catch. While on tape he seems to play bigger than he is, his size may force him into the slot early in his NFL career. But watching him play outside, he definitely has the potential to move out there in the future. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

44. Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee

Kamara doesn’t have the season-long volume of production like the top three players, but in limited playing time, he performed just as well despite running behind one of the worst run-blocking units in the nation. Kamara is one of the most elusive backs in the draft, with 39 missed tackles forced on 143 touches in 2016. He needs improvement in pass protection, but he can make an immediate impact as a receiver out of the backfield. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

45. Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan

Peppers will require a bit of a leap of faith by the team that drafts him, as he appears to lack a natural position at the next level. While he graded No. 1 among all FBS safeties in pass-rushing productivity and towards the top in run defense, most of the plays he made while attacking forward were unblocked, and his size suggests that he won’t be able to play a similar role in the NFL. His coverage skills at this stage are lacking, in part due to limited reps, but also from what appears to be limited read-and-react skills, as he tended to let balls get completed comfortably in front of him before rallying to the receiver. 21 catchable balls were thrown into his coverage in 2016, and the only one that wasn’t completed was a receiver drop. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

46. Joe Mathis, Edge, Washington

Mathis is the wild card of this edge class. His games against Oregon and Stanford were of first-rounder quality, but a foot injury suffered in that Oregon game cost him the majority of his senior year. In those two games, Mathis racked up 14 QB pressures, which is more than he averaged in his previous two full seasons at Washington. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

47. Takkarist McKinley, Edge, UCLA

McKinley has some of the best straight-line explosiveness in this class, and was too much physically for many college offensive tackles. He was responsible for one of projected first-round OT Garett Bolles’ three sacks allowed this season, and recorded 20 total sacks plus hits on the year. The biggest concern for the former Bruin was his disappearance in certain games. Stanford and Washington State both held McKinley in check for much of their games. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

48. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado

Yet another long, athletic cornerback, Witherspoon broke out with a productive 2016 before putting together a dominant NFL Combine at about 6-foot-3. He tied for the national lead with 13 pass breakups while allowing only 31.8 percent of his targets to be completed, third-best in the country. Witherspoon has the size and athleticism that press-man coverage teams covet, and that may push him even higher up the board come draft weekend. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

49. Ethan Pocic, C, LSU

The highest-graded center on our board, Pocic is an oddity for the position at 6-foot-6. Even at that height, he still has the flexibility to consistently gain leverage on nose tackles. Pocic has scheme versatility and multiple years of quality play in the SEC to back up his ranking. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

50. Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado

Part of a loaded Colorado secondary, Awuzie put together three strong years of grading, culminating with a playmaking 2016 effort that saw him break up nine passes and intercept another. He has experience playing both outside and in the slot, and he fits better in more of a zone-heavy scheme, where his quick closing ability will be on display. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

51. Kevin King, CB, Washington

Few cornerbacks can dominate the movement drills at the combine at 6-foot-3, but that’s just what King did. He turned quite a few heads with his performance, and when combined with some highlight-reel plays in coverage, the splash is definitely there to King’s game. He has the size and movement skills to play press coverage, but also has a good feel for zone, making him a versatile option in the loaded cornerback class. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

52. Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina

Jones has become the epitome of a sure-handed underneath receiver over the past couple years. While the East Carolina wide receiver has amassed an incredible 462 targets over the past three years, he dropped only 17 of his 360 catchable targets. Still, due to coming from a small school and having played against lesser competition, Jones was flying under the radar for quite a while and people have really started talking about him mainly because he surpassed expectations with an impressive week at the Senior Bowl. Although Jones’ play is not necessarily extremely eye-catching, but he can be one of the most useful and reliable members of an offense. Overall, Jones’ production speaks for itself and he could become immensely useful for teams in moving the chains in an unspectacular way. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

53. Caleb Brantley, Defensive Interior, Florida

Brantley’s college production, or lack thereof, was based predominantly on limited exposure rather than quality. In his first three years at Florida, he managed just over 1,100 snaps, never seeing more than 48.3 percent of reps in any season. Like the other members of the top three, Brantley’s skill-set is ideal for the modern NFL. His quick hands and rapid first step ensure that linemen consistently fail to tie him up effectively. Brantley is a zone scheme’s kryptonite; his fast-twitch style makes executing reach blocks nearly impossible. Although he failed to register a high volume of QB pressures (only 29 total as a junior), Brantley amassed that total on just over 190 snaps. Even in a rotational role as a rookie, he could dramatically improve any defensive line. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

54. Taylor Moton, G, Western Michigan

In 2015 it was Moton, not fellow teammate and fourth-round pick Willie Beavers, who was worthy of being an All-Conference offensive lineman in the MAC. Moton then made the switch from guard to tackle as a senior with stellar results. He didn’t allow a single sack and only eight total QB pressures all year long. Some may still even see Moton as a tackle at the next level. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

55. Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

At a position defined by consistency, the number of mental lapses from Robinson are concerning. Whether it’s penalties (23 the past two seasons), missed assignments, or lethargic reps, Robinson has a good deal of issues to shore up. That being said, he has a blend of power and athleticism that resembles All-Pro-caliber players at the position. Maybe the most encouraging sign for the true junior is that he went from seven sacks allowed in 2015 to only one in the 2016 season. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

56. Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama

Everett is an athletic freak, earning “top performer” marks at the NFL Combine in the following events: bench press (22 reps, third-most among TEs), vertical jump (37.5 inches, third-best), broad jump (126 inches, fifth-best), 3-cone drill (6.99 seconds, fourth-best) and the 20-yard shuttle (4.33 seconds). That athleticism stands out on his tape, as well. He’s a nightmare to bring down with the ball in his hands—Everett forced 24 missed tackles in 2016, nine more than any other tight end—and his short-term burst, paired with his size and agility, make it quite difficult for linebackers to match up with him one-on-one. He shows no fear of contact when running routes over the middle and his balance is one of his greatest strengths. Everett showed multiple times on film that he’s capable of absorbing a blow before continuing on downfield. He’s raw—a classic case of played basketball in high school and got into football late—and his technique as both a route runner and run blocker need work, but if he’s able to clean that up with NFL coaching, he could be a Pro-Bowl-level tight end. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

57. Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo

Hunt has consistently produced over the past three years and is coming off easily his best season. He’s smooth and quick in and out of cuts, and can string together moves as well as anyone. Toledo used him more in the passing game in his final year, showing that he can have a significant impact as a receiver, as well. Hunt is one of just three running backs in the draft class to force over 200 missed tackles from 2014-2016, including 98 in 2016 alone. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

58. Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss

Engram is arguably the best tight end in this class out of the slot, and he’s a legitimate deep threat. Over the past two seasons on balls thrown at least 20 yards in the air, Engram has hauled in 10 of 17 attempts for 337 yards and three touchdowns. He’s quite athletic with great short-term burst; he moves fluidly and tracks the ball well downfield and is capable of winning hand fights to create late separation. Engram doesn’t offer much as a run blocker—his grading regressed from 2015 to 2016, and at times it looks like he just ducks his head and goes in blind when throwing a block—but there may not be a better tight end in this class at stretching the middle of the field. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

59. Dalvin Tomlinson, Defensive Interior, Alabama

Tomlinson’s versatility bears little resemblance to Allen’s. You won’t find him lined up in a two-point stance anytime soon. He’s more of a traditional defensive tackle, using his strength to clog interior running lanes. Like all Alabama defensive line products, he understands and executes two-gap technique with a minimum of fuss. It would be easy, therefore, to pigeon-hole Tomlinson as just another Crimson Tide run defender. That would do him a disservice. Clearly his wide base and thick thighs form the foundation of his success, but he is more than just a two-down option. Tomlinson possesses the agility to consistently impact the passing game, particularly with his favored arm-over move. He is further along in his development than former teammate A’Shawn Robinson, a second-round pick in 2016, and could probably play any of the interior positions, including nose tackle. Tomlinson is less flashy than his peers, but might just end up a more effective pro. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

60. Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida

Wilson didn’t grade as well as the stats would indicate, but he capped his Florida career allowing a passer rating of only 45.8 into his coverage over the last three seasons. He moves well for his size and knows how to play the ball in both press and off coverage. He’ll get beaten at times when trying to press, but there’s a lot to like about his game, and he’s diverse enough to fit multiple schemes. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

61. Garett Bolles, OT, Utah

Bolles, like Ramczyk, has only one season of FBS competition under his belt. In that season, however, he finished with the fourth-highest run-blocking grade of any FBS tackle. Pass protection was an issue, as Bolles finished with an average grade after allowing 20 total QB pressures last season on 472 pass-blocking snaps. It should also be noted that he led the country with 17 penalties last season. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

62. Marcus Williams, S, Utah

Williams is a solid, dependable player both in coverage and against the run. He did not miss a single tackle when playing within 8 yards of the line of scrimmage at the snap, and led all FBS safeties in run-stop percentage when playing at that depth. While not a flashy hitter on the back end, he had 10-combined interceptions between 2015 and 2016 and gave up just 11 total receptions as the primary defender on 430 total coverage reps the past two seasons. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

63. Vincent Taylor, Defensive Interior, Oklahoma State

The first nose tackle to crack the list, Taylor’s intriguing potential will likely see him selected some time on Day 2. Although far from perfect, his flashes of brilliance are hard to ignore. Taylor ticks the boxes for size, athleticism and production. His length is instantly noticeable, particularly on first contact. Centers have a difficult job at the best of times, and Taylor compounds the problem with his capacity to overwhelm blockers heads up. If there is one weakness, he might be overly-reliant on dominating early in reps. He does not always win his duels if the first contact is neutral, and he can be vulnerable to chips from a second blocker as well as genuine double-teams. Those concerns are mitigated somewhat by the dual-threat he represents. Taylor moves extremely well for a man his size, helping him generate pressure with finesse as well as power. He is a potential Day 1 starter. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

64. Desmond King, CB, Iowa

King was the victim of one of the most notable plays during Senior Bowl practice, with East Carolina wide receiver Zay Jones leaving him in the dust on a double move, but that one play shouldn’t overshadow an outstanding college career. Impressive in coverage and one of the nation’s best run defenders among defensive backs, he has recorded 14 interceptions and 24 pass breakups from the 182 passes thrown into his coverage since 2014. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

65. DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame

Week-to-week—and often play-to-play–consistency is the big question for Kizer, who has at least shown the ability to make every throw, handle pressure, and maneuver the pocket like an NFL quarterback. He often makes difficult stuff look easy, but he also makes the easy stuff look difficult, and his overall accuracy is below the level of the other quarterbacks in the draft class. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

66. Corn Elder, CB, Miami

Elder spent time at both outside and slot cornerback for the Hurricanes, but his skill-set transitions best as a slot corner in the NFL. He allowed a mere 0.33 yards per coverage snap from the slot last year, and missed just four of the 70 solo tackles he attempted, so he really shouldn’t slip beyond Day 2 of the draft. — Gordon McGuinness, @PFF_Gordon

67. DeMarcus Walker, Edge, Florida State

Walker likely fits better on the interior at the next level, but he moved around and was one of the most productive defensive linemen in the country in 2016. He used his good hands to pick up 17 sacks, 12 QB hits, and 34 hurries on 457 rushes last season, all while improving his work in the run game to grade at 83.1. He looks like one of the better interior pass-rushers in the draft. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

68. Dan Feeney, G, Indiana

Feeney is likely the most accomplished pass-protecting guard in this class that actually played the position last season. He allowed only six QB pressures in 2015, and had allowed only one pressure through four games in 2016 before being forced to make the switch to right tackle. He then went to the Senior Bowl and dominated the one-on-ones more than anyone else that week, winning half of his reps. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

69. Trey Hendrickson, Edge, Florida Atlantic

Hendrickson was by far the most productive pass-rusher outside the Power-5 conferences. His 20.5 pass-rushing productivity led the entire nation as he racked up 78 QB pressures, second-most in the nation. This comes a year after he finished second in the country with 15 sacks in 2015. Hendrickson’s only knock is level of competition. That concern wasn’t eased at all by an average showing in the Shrine game after the season. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

70. George Kittle, TE, Iowa

While Kittle may not possess the size to become a reliable, in-line blocker, his sound technique, willingness to block and above-average athleticism make him a great No. 2 tight end in a “move” role. He’s one of the best in the class at blocking on the move, where he can use his athleticism and instincts to take advantage of angles and leverage. Kittle possesses the quickness and speed that should make him a versatile receiving threat capable of running routes from multiple positions, as well. At the very least, he’ll be a reliable underneath threat capable of gaining yards after the catch and moving the chains. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

71. Deatrich Wise Jr., Edge, Arkansas

Another “tweener,” Wise’s best position is likely as a 3-4 defensive end. He had some issues holding up to double teams at Arkansas that limited his playing time, but he was incredibly productive on the 488 snaps he saw see as a senior. Then at the East-West Shrine Game, he utterly dominated, racking up two sacks, a hit, and five hurries. He’s still very raw, but Wise has some freakish tools to work with in the NFL. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

72. Roderick Johnson, OT, FSU

Johnson wins the “looks the part” award, measuring in at 6-foot-7 with 36-inch arms. He’s also demonstrated the ability to utilize that length in pass protection and execute every block in the run game. That being said, he’s at No. 4 on this list because he’s still very raw. Johnson has a bad habit of overextending, and he’ll need a ton of work in pass protection. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

73. Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State

Godwin’s is a name people have been talking about all draft season as a very intriguing prospect. He was a great deep threat for Penn State mainly because of his ability to win at the catch point. He uses his body well to keep defenders off of him and can high point the ball. He’s a solid route-runner with tools to develop further. One of his attributes that NFL teams will like most is his tenacious run-blocking. Godwin was our 10th-highest-graded run-blocker among all college receivers last season. While there are some issues, such as his speed sometimes not showing up on tape and lack of open-field explosiveness, Godwin remains a solid prospect. He should find a role with the team that drafts him and one day may work himself into a consistent role as an intermediate/deep receiving threat. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

74. Dawuane Smoot, Edge, Illinois

Smoot is one of the few pass-rushers on this list with an already-refined rip move. He also has the bend that makes one think that will translate to the next level. It’s a little concerning that his junior season—60 total QB pressures—greatly outshined his senior year (53 pressures). Smoot’s two-year production as a pass-rusher, however, is still among the 10 best in this class. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

75. Chris Wormley, Defensive Interior, Michigan

At 6-foot-5 and 298 pounds, Wormley is an ideal fit at 5-tech for 3-4 defenses, but can also offer versatility working both inside and out outside for a 4-3 team. He was extremely productive against both the run and pass his last two years at Michigan, totaling 84 QB pressures and 54 total defensive stops, with just four missed tackles in that span. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

76. Derek Rivers, Edge, Youngstown State

Rivers is an athletic freak who dominated small competition. We don’t have a full season of data on him, but he was far from that same dominant player at the Senior Bowl. In Mobile, he was right around average in the one-on-one drills. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

77. Xavier Woods, S, Louisiana Tech

Woods has had three years of strong grading, and he showed the skills to make an impact at both free safety and while covering the slot. His 85.0 coverage grade ranked 16th in the nation in 2016. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

78. Curtis Samuel, RB, Ohio State

Samuel is one of the most unique skill players in the draft, with the versatility to make an impact when lined up at either running back or wide receiver. Some believe that he will be a wide receiver in the NFL, and he very well may end up there. But he will need more polishing as a route runner, etc., as a receiver before he can play there exclusively, and using him in a Percy Harvin-like role may get the most out of him as a player. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

79. Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama

Jackson is a converted cornerback with the size and athleticism to be a versatile coverage defender at the next level when healthy. He offered little in terms of run support at Alabama, however, as he managed just one tackle and no stops on 66 snaps lined up within 8 yards of the line of scrimmage in 2016. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

80. Ejuan Price, Edge, Pittsburgh

Most 5-foot-11 players simply can’t hold up on the edge in the NFL. There’s good reason to think Price is different. His balance and pass-rushing repertoire are both superb. His 29 combined sacks and hits were the second-most in the country last year. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

81. Tanzel Smart, Defensive Interior, Tulane

Although shorter than ideal at just a shade over 6-foot, Smart monopolizes that advantage in leverage consistently. Sufficient length offsets his height deficiency significantly. A low center of gravity and powerful arms combine to facilitate probably the best bull-rush in the class. It is a joy to watch Smart tossing and toying with lineman who are helplessly hoping to re-anchor against the tide that is the former Green Wave product. Attempts to blow him off the ball in the ground game are also fruitless. In fact, Smart is much more likely to win his battles against the run. He flashed astounding ability to change direction in the backfield, consistently regaining his balance to fly to the football and generate tackles for loss. Smart could stand to improve as a tackler, but he represents one of the more consistently disruptive interior defenders in the class. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

82. Tedric Thompson, S, Colorado

Thompson was statistically the most impressive coverage safety in the country this year, although his lack of top-end speed and athleticism pushes him down the list of draft-eligible prospects at the position. He tallied seven interceptions and seven pass break-ups in 2016, and gave up completions on just 40.3 percent of passes thrown into his coverage. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

83. Budda Baker, S, Washington

This is sure to be one of our most controversial positions on a player, but we have real concerns about how Baker’s game translates to the NFL. He flashed constantly at Washington when attacking forward, but many of the plays he made were unblocked, and he also overran far too many with his overaggressiveness. More concerning is his coverage skill-set, as he certainly possesses the athleticism, but his size allows receivers and tight ends to consistently beat him on contested balls. He also tends to go for the big play too often, which often results in receivers still coming down with the ball and having the space to create bigger plays after the catch. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

84. Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky

While Taylor will need to work on winning at the catch point at the next level, he’s a shifty route runner and has good acceleration, which should make him a weapon in the passing game. He led the NCAA last year with 948 receiving yards on deep passes (20-plus yards downfield). — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

85. Rasul Douglas, CB, West Virginia

At 6-foot-2, Douglas is yet another cornerback to be coveted by press-man teams. However, at West Virginia, he played mostly off coverage and excelled in their system, with a nation-leading eight interceptions and 10 pass breakups that tied for 11th in 2016. He still has work to do to improve as a press corner, but he’s a solid zone player who has the frame to develop in more of a man system. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

86. D’Onta Foreman, RB, Texas

Foreman is a big back coming off a highly productive season for Texas. Despite his size, he moves well laterally and has a finesse-runner feel to his game. He has the size and strength to move piles and run through defenders, but needs to be more consistent in being the hammer, and not just absorbing contact. His lack of experience in the passing game may limit him to an early-down role, but Foreman has proven that he can be an effective runner. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

87. Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee

Sutton has flashed his potential (2014 season and early 2016 season), but injuries and inconsistency make him a question mark. He’s showed the skills to play zone effectively while dabbling in the slot and at safety at the Senior Bowl. At his peak, Sutton broke up 10 passes and intercepted three more on only 67 targets in 2014. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

88. Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech

Standing at 6-foot-6 with out-of-the-stadium leaping ability, Hodges should step in and become a red-zone weapon for an NFL offense. He has minimal experience lining up with his hand in the dirt, and doesn’t offer a whole lot as a run blocker or pass protector, but he’s capable of lining up both in the slot and out wide, and he’s productive at all three levels. Hodges’ limited ability as a blocker, paired with his limited ability to create yards after the catch—he averaged just 3.0 yards after the catch last season—will likely cap his role within an NFL offense, but in terms of being a big-bodied target, he has a lot to offer. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

89. Shaquill Griffin, CB, UCF

Griffin’s production and athleticism are difficult to ignore, as his 87.2 coverage grade ranked 11th in the nation in 2016. He’ll give up his fair share of plays, but he also got his hands on 15 passes in 2016 (11 pass breakups, four interceptions) and he has the size and movement skills to fit multiple schemes. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

90. Tarell Basham, Edge, Ohio

Basham is a bull-rush aficionado with high-level production in the MAC. His 52 QB hurries were the fourth-most in the country last year. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

91. Delano Hill, S, Michigan

What Hill lacks in flash he makes up for with consistency. He proved at the combine that he has the size and athleticism to translate his game to the NFL (4.47-second 40 at 6-foot-1 and 216 pounds), and his senior year production also bodes well. He allowed just 22 receptions on 40 throws into his coverage last season, and defended a total of seven passes. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

92. Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington

One of the most talked-about names in this draft class is Kupp, from FCS school Eastern Washington. While it is true that Kupp dominated teams against which he was clearly athletically superior and far more talented, Kupp cannot be overlooked in this class. He’s an incredibly smart receiver and knows how to break off or adjust his routes depending on what coverage he’s against. He’s not the fastest out there but he uses very good route-running in order to create space to catch the ball with very strong hands. Kupp will be pigeonholed as a slot receiver by many, but he has the size and skills to play outside as well. He averaged 5.11 yards per route run as an outside receiver last season. Kupp is another guy that likely will never be a true No. 1 receiver, but he has the tools and skills to be an effective NFL starter for many years to come. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

https://twitter.com/PFF_College/status/840389567131897857

93. Montravius Adams, Defensive Interior, Auburn

Adams might lack the requisite strength and power in his base to play nose tackle (his role at Auburn), but he might benefit from playing in a position and scheme that allows him to fire off the ball more regularly. His inconsistency is infuriating at times, because he has a highlight reel capable of making evaluators bang the table for his selection. LSU’s Ethan Pocic, arguably the draft’s top center prospect, was decimated by Adams. His instincts also work in his favor, but, realistically, he’ll likely need some time in the weight room before he can be trusted in the base package. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

94. Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio State

Running a 4.61 40 at the combine was critical for Raekwon McMillan, because his play in coverage at Ohio State is likely to leave some NFL teams worried about his viability on third down. He finished his college career in style with 25 stops in his last four games, and is a very good tackler who consistently wraps up. While some teams may like his leadership and production enough to take him early on Day 2, his average change of direction and playing speed, combined with his struggles against blocks, suggests he is a better value toward the end of Day 2 in the third round. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

95. Chad Hansen, WR, California

Hansen was never considered to be an elite or even a much above-average college wide receiver, yet whenever the ball went his way, he kept making plays for Cal in 2016. Even though Hansen does not necessarily have the measurables (6-2, 202 pounds) and ran a 40-yard dash of just 4.53 seconds, he excelled at catching deep passes and winning contested catches last year. Perhaps most impressively, the wide receiver did not drop any of his 16 deep targets at Cal. The fact that he can high-point passes and go up and outmuscle defensive backs for the ball makes him very effective in coming down with contested catches in close coverage. The biggest knock on Hansen is how he was used and the lack of experience he has running different type of routes as he lined up almost exclusively on the right side and 73.6 percent of his targets came on screens, hitches and go routes. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

96. Eddie Vanderdoes, Defensive Interior, UCLA

On form and on the field, Vanderdoes has elite potential. The issue is that he rarely demonstrated that kind of ability for any prolonged stretch in his final two years with the Bruins. An ACL injury was unavoidable, but Vanderdoes failed to illustrate a full recovery in 2016. Both his mass and motivation have been questioned in the offseason process. Optimists will suggest he was merely working his way back after missing time, and displayed sufficient star-quality to be a steal on Day 2. Pessimists will look at some genuinely concerning reps against double-teams, a failure to display his athletic measurables on the field, and a mauling at the hands of Utah’s Garett Bolles as indicative of major flaws. Vanderdoes’ stock and status are hard to pin down. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

97. Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia

Ford is one of those guys who does a lot of things well, but just doesn’t seem to have enough pieces to be a No. 1 receiver. What he is good at, though, is using his hands while running routes to create separation, which is good because he isn’t really fast enough to separate on speed alone. He’s not the strongest receiver, but he has good body control that allows him to haul in contested catches even when the ball isn’t thrown perfectly. He also has a very good release off the line of scrimmage, which helps him consistently beat press coverage. Ford may not have what it takes to be the No. 1 guy on a team, but he should be able to provide a very valuable complementary role wherever he ends up. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

98. Vince Biegel, Edge, Wisconsin

Biegel is a freakishly talented athlete, but unrefined football player at this point. He also packs very little punch, and may have to move to an off-ball role in the NFL. Still his movement skills make him intriguing, as he racked up 52 QB pressures on only 255 pass-rushing snaps last year. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

99. Nathan Gerry, S, Nebraska

Gerry is most effective in the box, as he is a solid run defender and can make plays against the pass underneath with his excellent feel for the game. In three years of play at Nebraska, he gave up a completion percentage of just 51.5 percent and picked off 13 passes, but his limited change of direction and playing speed could make him a liability in man coverage at the next level. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

100. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma

Perine has seemingly become the forgotten player after being surpassed by Mixon in Oklahoma’s offense, but his lesser role should not be indicative of what kind of impact he could have in the NFL. Perine is a big, physical back that shows impressive balance through contact. He’s most effective as a downhill runner, and while he could handle a full workload, he’s probably best suited as a power back that is paired with a more dynamic player to handle part of the workload and passing situations. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

101. Mack Hollins, WR, North Carolina

Hollins is a sleeper prospect here with not a lot of college production to back him up. But he’s ranked this high because of what he can do when he’s on the field. At 6-4 and 221 pounds, Hollins is one of the biggest receivers in the class. But he also has phenomenal straightaway speed. He effortlessly blew by defenders throughout his career, evidenced by his 20 career touchdowns on just 71 receptions. Hollins was also a workhorse on special teams, a captain who played on every single unit. There are certainly issues with Hollins, such as a very limited route tree and the mystery about lack of production for a receiver with his tools. But watching his tape you can see that Hollins can play. With the natural size and speed he has, if Hollins can develop his route-running and show the ability to compete in contested catch situations, it’s not such a crazy stretch to say that Hollins has No. 1 receiver potential. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

102. Tanoh Kpassagnon, Edge, Villanova

With little data available to judge Kpassagnon, a strong Senior Bowl week was all the more impressive. He has a great frame at 6-foot-7, 289-pounds, capable of playing base defensive end or winning from the interior as a pass-rusher. He made a number of splash plays during Senior Bowl practice and capped it with one of the game’s top pass-rushing grades behind a sack, two QB hits, and a hurry on only 18 rushes. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

103. Chase Roullier, C, Wyoming

Roullier, as much as any center in this class, has shown the ability to execute any block asked of him in the run game. Whether it’s pulling to the edge, reaching a shade, or tracking down a linebacker on the move, Roullier did it all at Wyoming. The change in competition level will be drastic for Roullier, and it may take him awhile to develop into an NFL starter. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

104. Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA

If you turn on McDermott’s tape against Texas A&M and Myles Garrett, you might not even draft him. In that game, he allowed a ridiculous 11 total QB pressures, including four hits and a sack. He would only allow seven total QB pressures the rest of the season, but the damage was done. McDermott moves like an NFL tackle, but with how much he struggled against power, the former UCLA Bruin will still need to put on considerable strength to start in the NFL. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

105. Nathan Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh

The best quarterback during the week at the Senior Bowl, Peterman showed an impressive combination of big-time throws and intermediate accuracy during the 2016 season. He also had one of the highest percentages of turnover-worthy throws, and his natural tools don’t jump off the tape, but there’s a lot to like about Peterman’s game. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

106. Jamaal Williams, RB, BYU

Williams is a physical, aggressive runner who plays bigger than the 212 pounds he weighed in at at the combine. He gains more yards after contact than other backs his size, and utilizes stiff arms and spin moves to extend runs. He may not have the speed to turn as many runs into long ones as he did in college, but is a solid rusher capable of running inside and gaining more than what his offensive line provides. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

107. Elijah Qualls, Defensive Interior, Washington

Qualls has good quickness off the ball and moved around the formation to pick up four sacks, two QB hits, and 29 hurries on 324 rushes in 2016. His short arms are less than ideal, as he’ll get engulfed at the line of scrimmage, but his quick hands allowed him to grade at a solid 84.3 in the run game last season. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

108. Dion Dawkins, G, Temple

Dawkins has the power to excel in a power blocking scheme, and he finished 2016 with only nine pressures allowed on 461 attempts while playing left tackle. He’ll likely transition to guard at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

109. Antonio Garcia, OT, Troy

At left tackle, pass protection is the end-all-be-all, and Garcia has shown all the traits necessary to perform in that facet at the next level. This past season, he allowed all of one hit and six hurries in 506 pass-blocking snaps. He then went to the Senior Bowl, and after some early jitters, was arguably the most impressive tackle in pass protection, winning a third of his one-on-ones. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

110. Jake Butt, TE, Michigan

Expecting Butt to be the complete package as an NFL tight end is probably asking too much. He has blatant limitations as a run blocker, both at the line of scrimmage and as he moves up the field. Butt isn’t overly-athletic, but he doesn’t mess around with the ball in his hands; he turns up field as soon as he’s secured the catch and looks to squeeze out as many yards as he can. Big plays are going to be few and far between for Butt in the NFL, and he isn’t going to have much success creating separation when manned up in coverage, but his penchant for finding the holes in zone coverages—especially in the short-to-intermediate range—and getting upfield will help an offense move the chains. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

111. Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech

Probably the most exciting college tape of this receiving class belonged to Henderson. In 2016 for Louisiana Tech he forced an insane 48 missed tackles, nearly double the second-most at the position. The one thing that stands out over everything that Henderson does is his vision. Nobody in this class is better with the ball in his hands. Henderson at times looked like he was three steps ahead of the defense, making the exact right cut, hesitation, fake, etc., in order to force a missed tackle or break a small pass into a huge gain. Henderson is raw as a receiver, running very few routes for LA Tech’s offense and showing very little in terms of catching contested passes. But he is a guy you want on your team, simply to get him the ball and let him make plays. If he can develop as a receiver, he has the potential to be one of the best receivers to come out of this class. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

112. Jaleel Johnson, Defensive Interior, Iowa

Grade-wise, Johnson does not stand out, but his dependability is a feature of all quality interior defensive linemen. He is one of the best in the class at avoiding negative plays, even if he is also one of the least likely to make a play in the backfield. For some schemes, a run defender who consistently holds his ground and plays his gap, despite occasional double-teams, will be ideal. In contrast, Johnson can be relied upon to make splash plays as a pass-rusher. He fires off the ball, and then reaches into a bag of moves so varied it is the envy of the class. Once Johnson reaches full speed, he can deliver the full force of his frame, demolishing centers on stunts, in particular. A disappointing workout might see him fall, but the focus should instead be on his game-defining performance against Michigan. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

113. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC

Smith-Schuster seemed to have lost some momentum in the draft process after a down year production-wise compared to 2015, but don’t let that fool you. Smith-Schuster is a strong, physical receiver who knows how to use his body to make catches. He’s not the fastest or quickest receiver by any means, but he does run some routes well enough to get open. Once the ball is in his hands he’s hard to bring down, especially by smaller secondary defenders. Smith-Schuster is the kind of guy who loves underthrown deep balls, because it allows him the chance to get under it and high point the ball over a defender. He still needs to get more consistent at those contested catch situations, but his size and hands should help him there. Smith-Schuster may never be more than a good second option receiver but in today’s pass-happy NFL, that is something a lot of teams should covet. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

114. Ryan Glasgow, Defensive Interior, Michigan

Ryan Glasgow is a rare prospect capable of aligning almost anywhere on the defensive front. He played nose tackle at Michigan, but could plausibly have played the three had Jim Harbaugh not built a defensive line rotation filled with NFL-level talent. Glasgow illustrated an adaptable skill-set with the tools to succeed at the next level. A player with few weaknesses, he combined a stout anchor with surprising quickness to make plays throughout his college career. Glasgow also stands out because of his instincts; he rapidly diagnoses run and misdirection concepts. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

115. Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami

When throwing within the flow of the offense, Kaaya looks like a reasonable quarterback, able to make good decisions and get the ball out of his hand with solid short-area accuracy. He doesn’t have great zip to drive the ball downfield, and most concerning about his game is how much he drops off when pressured, illustrated by his completion percentage falling from 68.5 percent in a clean pocket to 32.9 percent when under pressure. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

116. Danny Isidora, G, Miami

Isidora played in a pro-style scheme at Miami and has already excelled in pass protection. He allowed fewer than 10 total QB pressures as a senior. Isidora has rare physical traits for the position, but needs to add strength, as evidenced by him repeatedly getting bull-rushed at the Senior Bowl. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

117. ArDarius Stewart, WR, Alabama

Stewart is an under-the-radar receiving prospect out of Alabama that should find a place in the NFL. Stewart needs to run better routes and show that he can handle man coverage, but his explosiveness and after-the-catch ability makes him an intriguing prospect. He averaged 10.7 yards after the catch per reception last year, second amongst Power-5 receivers. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

118. Pat Elflein, C, Ohio State

Elflein is an interesting projection to the next level, as he was one of the highest-graded run blockers at guard in 2015 and center in 2016, but struggled mightily as a pass protector. Elflein’s 16 total QB pressures allowed this past season were four times that of WVU center Tyler Orlosky. The position versatility is intriguing, but the pass protection needs to be shored up. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

119. Blair Brown, LB, Ohio

Brown is an outstanding tackler who consistently defeats blocks despite his size because of his instincts. He consistently blows run plays up because of his ability to read blocks and beat them to the point of attack; that ability reflected in the fact he finished third among FBS inside linebackers last season in run-stop percentage. While his short-area quickness and aggressiveness serve him well against the run, his speed and size issues are very apparent in coverage. While he is likely a two-down run defender at the next level, he is still worth an early Day 3 pick because he is so proficient against the run, and his competitiveness suggests that he can develop into an top contributor on special teams as well. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

120. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

For teams looking for deep threats in the middle rounds, Reynolds might be the guy. He’s a long strider, which means he likely won’t develop into an underneath receiver, but his deep speed and tracking ability, coupled with his great hands and contested catch ability, works in his favor. His 2.35 yards per route run mark last year was ninth-best among SEC receivers. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

121. Jeremy McNichols, RB, Boise State

McNichols has experience in both zone and gap blocking schemes, though the latter may be a better fit. He had a below-average line in 2016, and sometimes cut away from the intended point of attack before it was necessary as if he wasn’t trusting his blockers. McNichols has good balance through contact and plays bigger than his size at times. He may fit the definition of “jack of all trades, master of none” more than any other back in the draft class. He was an above-average receiver out of the backfield, and that may be where he contributes most in the NFL early on. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

122. Justin Senior, OT, Mississippi State

Senior showed continued improvement at Mississippi State before allowing only 14 total QB pressures on 473 attempts in 2016. He has technique issues to iron out in both the run and pass game, but he’s worth a look in a developmental role. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

123. Marcus Maye, S, Florida

Maye is a solid box defender, as he finished second among SEC safeties in run-stop percentage in 2016. Off the line of scrimmage he is not as effective, however, as he has speed and agility limitations that hurt him in coverage. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

124. Trent Taylor, WR, Louisiana Tech

Taylor will find a role as a slot receiver right out of the gate thanks to his high-level quickness and incredible hands. His 3.28 yards per route run out of the slot last year was the second-most in the country. He knows how to get open against different coverages and that will be a huge advantage for him at the next level.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

125. Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State

While size and speed are less than ideal, Kazee has a good feel for zone coverage and he excelled in San Diego State’s scheme that had him playing off coverage the marjority of the time. He picked up seven interceptions and four pass breakups in 2016 while allowing a passer rating of only 43.7 into his coverage. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

126. Ryan Anderson, Edge, Alabama

Anderson may not be what the NFL is looking for on the edge from a size and athleticism standpoint, but he simply gets the job done repeatedly. The Alabama outside linebacker ranked sixth and fifth the past two seasons among SEC edge players, despite playing only 670 and 361 snaps, respectively, in those seasons. He’s already incredibly advanced with his hands and does a great job of keeping his body clean despite limited length. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

127. Larry Ogunjobi, Defensive Interior, Charlotte

The mid-rounds of 2017 will be an absolute goldmine for teams searching for a base package nose tackle. Ogunjobi might be the best of the bunch. He likely won’t last until Day 3 after solid Senior Bowl and combine performances boosted his stock. Ogunjobi established his reputation prior to the offseason circuit, wrecking Conference USA with his strength on the interior. He may not have been facing elite competition, but the Charlotte product stood up to double-teams consistently in his final two years of college. Ogunjobi was ridiculously productive against the run, generating 77 stops in 2015 and 2016 combined. Although clearly superior on early downs, he’s also a competent power rusher, suggesting Ogunjobi has potential to contribute even in the nickel. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

128. Kenneth Olugbode, LB, Colordao

Olugbode broke out in 2016 to finish sixth overall among the nation’s linebackers with an 88.1 overall grade. He flies to the ball in the run game and shows good range in zone coverage, and he should at least compete for snaps in sub-package sets at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

129. Grover Stewart, DI, Albany

Stewart is a massive human being, strong enough to win with bull-rushes and fast enough to win with athleticism. He possesses an elite combination of production (albeit against lesser competition), size and athleticism (23.5 career sacks, 33.5-inch arms, 30 bench press reps at 225, and a 7.65-second 3-cone). Being such a shallow interior class, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Stewart drafted very early on Day 3. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

130. Robert Leff, OT, Auburn

Leff put up solid grades in Auburn’s scheme, particularly in the run game, where his 81.9 grade ranked 12th in the nation. There’s a natural learning curve coming from Auburn’s offense into the NFL, but Leff can make a roster on the back of his run-blocking potential as he develops in pass protection. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

131. Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida

Mack is one of the most athletically talented running backs in the draft class and always a threat for a big play. He gained 52 percent of his rushing yards on his 15 runs of 15-plus yards, the fourth-highest breakaway percentage in the draft class. He has issues with bouncing runs and fumbling too often, but if he can curb those bad habits, he could turn out as one of the best backs in the draft class. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

132. Jon Toth, C, Kentucky

Toth brings good size to the position, and he ran Kentucky’s offense well, grading among the nation’s top centers for three straight years. He took a slight step back in 2016, allowing 10 pressures and ranking 30th in the draft class in pass-blocking efficiency, but he’s a solid option in a downhill run scheme. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

133. Howard Wilson, CB, Houston

Wilson broke out with a strong 2016 season, finishing with five interceptions and eight pass breakups on his 80 targets, good for an 85.4 overall grade that ranked 22nd in the nation. Opponents recorded a passer rating of only 44.6 when targeting Wilson. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

134. Jacob Hollister, TE, Wyoming

Hollister showed continued improvement in college, putting together a strong 2016 that showed off his playmaking ability. He’s a nifty route runner who can go up and make plays in traffic, and he did a fine job after the catch, averaging 7.1 YAC/completion in 2016. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

135. DeAngelo Brown, Defensive Interior, Louisville

A surprise Senior Bowl and combine omission, Brown could legitimately start in a base package as a rookie. He is one of the best prospects in this class against double-teams. Brown displays tremendous technique against multiple blockers, sinking his powerful lower body to deny lineman vertical movement. Even when initially unbalanced, he displays a consistent capacity to re-anchor and earn a draw at worst. Admittedly, Brown is unlikely to emerge as a nickel pass-rusher, yet a mid-round investment is almost certainly worthwhile for a valuable member of any defensive line rotation. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

136. Carlos Watkins, Defensive Interior, Clemson

Clemson produced three prospects capable of contributing on NFL rosters in 2015. The fourth member of that starting front will follow suit this season. Watkins is more solid than spectacular, especially for a three-technique, but his versatile skill-set will appeal to the majority of pro teams. He’s a player built on length and strength, working through blocks, rather than around them, to make plays. While Watkins rarely embarrassed offensive lineman as a pass-rusher, he restricted the pocket frequently enough to represent a threat to opposing quarterbacks. Containing some of the athletes at the position in the NFL can be simplified significantly by Watkins’ deployment. He may have been overshadowed at times by Clemson’s freakish athletes, but Watkins is a fine player in his own right. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

137. Austin Carr, WR, Northwestern

Carr was incredibly productive last season, finishing as our highest-graded receiver at 89.5 overall. He runs smart routes out of the slot and has good hands to finish with. He could develop into a reliable security blanket for an NFL QB much like he was with Northwestern last year. QB Clayton Thorson had a rating of 118.6 when targeting Carr and 77.6 when targeting any other receiver.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

138. Jordan Evans, LB, Oklahoma

Evans is a frustrating player to watch on film because he is an excellent athlete but doesn’t finish nearly enough plays because he lacks physicality. He is frequently in position to make plays because he uses leverage well to defeat blockers and can win with speed, but he missed 12 tackles last season and finished just 108th in tackling efficiency at the position. His athleticism serves him well in coverage, which will likely be his primary responsibility at the next level. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

139. Channing Stribling, CB, Michigan

Stribling doesn’t have great athleticism, but had a strong 2016, allowing a passer rating of only 22.7 into his coverage, good for second-best in the nation. He got his hands on 15 passes (11 pass breakups, four interceptions) while allowing only 19 receptions into his coverage. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

140. Nico Siragusa, G, San Diego State

Siragusa’s 83.9 run-block grade ranked 10th in the nation, and he’s a good fit for a gap scheme at the next level, where he can use his power at the point of attack and on the move (he earned a positive grade on 23 percent of his pull blocks on “power,” an excellent rate). He also improved greatly in pass protection, where he surrendered only three QB pressures on 340 attempts in 2016. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

141. Nazair Jones, Defensive Interior, North Carolina

Jones entered 2016 on multiple early-round watch lists. A player with his frame and explosion should be in the conversation on Day 1. Instead, Day 3 looks more likely after an indifferent junior year. A position change as a sophomore might have held him back. Jones enjoyed his most productive season as a pass-rusher, playing five-technique as a freshman. Although he made some plays in 2016, the majority of his pressures were achieved through power moves rather than quick sheds and subsequent quarterback hits. There are other positives, including four batted passes in each of his college seasons, but Jones must develop further to reach his prodigious potential. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

142. Samson Ebukam, Edge, Eastern Washington

Ebukam owned FCS competition with little more than a blistering first step last season. He’s one of the most physically-gifted edge prospects in this class, but at only 240 pounds, he has a ways to develop. Ebukam’s production (66 total QB pressures) and stamina (940 snaps) are hard to overlook, though. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

143. Zach Banner, OT, USC

Banner has outstanding size and can create good movement at the point of attack in the run game. He struggles with speed rushers on the edge, perhaps limiting his potential, though he has the size and length to at least catch rushers and keep them off the quarterback. Banner allowed only 11 QB pressures on 442 attempts in 2016. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

144. James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh

Conner has faced a massive amount of adversity the past year and a half, having overcome both a knee injury and beating Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which forced him to miss nearly all of the 2015 season. In his first season back, he understandably did not match his previous level of performance, but did still have a good season, nonetheless, and improved as the year progressed. Back in 2014, Conner was PFF’s third-highest-graded runner, behind only Ezekiel Elliot and Melvin Gordon. If he can get back to that level, the big, yet quick-footed, running back could be a sleeper in this draft class. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

145. KD Cannon, WR, Baylor

Cannon is another Baylor receiver that’s more athlete than finished receiving product at this point. His speed and acceleration are very impressive, but his lack of a route tree may hold him back a bit. He’s very good at what he does run, though, as evidenced by his 2.72 yards per route run last season, 22nd-most among all FBS receivers.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

146. Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas

It’s a deep tight end class, and Sprinkle is another big-bodied option who can create mismatches in the passing game. He doesn’t have to be open to create a big play, and he can be a valuable asset while lining up all over the formation. He has work to do to improve in the run game, but Sprinkle has the size and route-running to make an impact in the pass game. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

147. Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh

Johnson has experience in multiple schemes, showing the playside power to play in a gap scheme and the movement skills to excel in zone. Consistency is an issue, as his top grade as a run blocker came in 2014, but there are tools to work with at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

148. Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA

Moreau has good size and athleticism that hasn’t always translated to the field, as his 76.9 grade in 2016 ranked 116th in the nation. He did notch two interceptions and 10 pass breakups on only 61 targets, and he’s been a sure tackler, with only eight misses on 101 attempts over the last three years. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

149. Ishmael Zamora, WR, Baylor

Zamora is essentially a Josh Gordon clone, with nearly identical size, athleticism and ability. Whether he can reach his potential, though, remains to be seen. Zamora has very inconsistent hands and doesn’t run many routes, but his size, speed, and strength make him one of the highest-ceiling receivers in the class. Baylor QBs had a rating of 106.6 when targeting him last year. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

150. Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee

Malone is young, which works in his favor, as there is still much to his game that needs to improve. But with good deep speed and strong hands with a big catch radius, he could make an impact immediately while continuing to grow down the road. Last year, Tennessee QBs had a rating of 144.4 when targeting Malone, the highest mark in the SEC.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

151. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

Adam Shaheen is a big and athletic tight end prospect, and teams will be intrigued by what he can contribute as a pass catcher. The big concern is that Shaheen’s level of competition was considerably lower than the other prospects in the class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

152. Jalen Myrick, CB, Minnesota

Myrick ranked 16th in the nation with an 86.0 overall grade and added even more intrigue when he ran a 4.28-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. He had some issues against bigger receivers, though he only gave up one reception on 18 targets on “go” routes. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

153. Stevie Tu’ikolovatu, Defensive Interior, USC

A classic, run-stuffing nose tackle, Tu’ikolavatu ranked second in the draft class in run-stop percentage (12.6) and had a strong week in the trenches at the Senior Bowl. He picked up only 13 QB pressures on 326 rushes last season; that will never be his game, but Tu’ikolovatu has value as an early-down run stopper at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

154. Mikal Myers, Defensive Interior, Connecticut

At 325 pounds, Myers is rarely moved off the ball, and he has a good feel in the run game, allowing him to rank 12th in the draft class in run-stop percentage, at 10.1 percent. He has little chance of creating pressure, as he notched only three QB pressures on 313 rushes in 2016, but Myers can hold the point and play the run on early downs at nose tackle. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

155. Jayon Brown, LB, UCLA

At 6-foot-0 and 231 pounds, Brown lacks the size to consistently hold up against blockers at the next level, but he plays at a high speed in all phases (despite what his average 4.70 40 time suggests) and was a very productive player at UCLA. Last season, he did not give up a touchdown while picking off three passes and breaking up another three. While there is cause for concern on whether his game can translate on first and second down, his strong play in coverage should be highly valued considering today’s game. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

156. Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan

Darboh is a nice prospect because he offers a full route-tree in a pro-style offense and is a very good run blocker. He lacks high-level athleticism, but does have some speed and can make contested catches over the middle. He also can make defenders miss, forcing 17 missed tackles over his past two seasons.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

157. Fred Zerblis, G, Colorado State

Zerblis has been outstanding the last two seasons, finishing 2016 with the nation’s No. 5 overall grade among guards, at 85.9. He is scheme-diverse, but may excel in a gap scheme as he can locate defenders on the move as a puller. Zerblis has surrendered only 10 QB pressures on 831 attempts over the last two seasons. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

158. Eric Smith, OT, Virginia

Smith progressed nicely at Virginia, topping out with an 81.2 overall grade in 2016 that ranked 17th in the nation. He showed the footwork to pass protect, and his pass-blocking efficiency on five-step drops ranked eighth in the draft class, at 97.8. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

159. Avery Moss, Edge, Youngstown State

Moss came to Youngstown State via Nebraska, due to significant off-the-field issues. While he needs to significantly improve hand usage, especially in terms of rushing the passer, he is a powerful player on the edge against the run. Against West Virginia in 2016 he racked up six run stops. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

160. Dylan Cole, LB, Missouri State

Cole’s athleticism — in particular, his change of direction and acceleration — is impressive, but his lack of physicality and tendency to want to retreat or run around blocks is scary. At his pro day, he recorded a vertical jump of 39 inches, ran his 40 in the 4.55 range, and put up 32 reps on the bench. If he learns how to translate that strength to his football game, he clearly has the goods to start in any scheme. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

161. Anthony Walker Jr., LB, Northwestern

Walker isn’t afraid to get physical with blockers and is capable of winning at the line of scrimmage, but his tackling leaves something to be desired. He missed 53 tackles over the past three seasons, and despite his solid all-around athleticism, was also not an effective player in coverage. His athletic and strength profile suggests he could develop into an effective player at the next level, but there are too many flaws in his game to warrant a high selection. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

162. Corey Levin, OG, Chattanooga

Levin needs to improve his core strength to better hold up at the line of scrimmage, but on film, he clearly demonstrates NFL-level movement skills. He excels at getting out in space on pulls and working to the second level off double-teams, and as a result, is a developmental pick worthy of late-round consideration. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

163. Omarius Bryant, Defensive Interior, Western Kentucky

Although he fails to stand out in any area, Bryant’s complete skill-set makes him an attractive proposition in the mid to late rounds. He generated 63 combined QB pressures in 2016 to go with 23 stops. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

164. Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia

Orlosky is one of the most accomplished pass-protecting centers in college football. He allowed all of 10 QB pressures in 968 pass-blocking snaps over the past two seasons combined. Unfortunately for him, center isn’t a position where pass protecting is at a premium, and his power and athleticism is lacking as a run blocker. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

165. D.J. Jones, Defensive Interior, Ole Miss

Jones can play rotational snaps on the interior of a defensive line; he recorded 18 run stops in 2015 and 13 in 2016. If Jones can generate a more consistent pass-rush, he could possibly push for a starting role down the line. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

166. Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU

Dupre has deep speed to go along with 6-foot-4 height, which makes him an intriguing prospect. He lacks a big route-tree but he can still take the top off of any defense. If he can improve on some of the more technical aspects of a being a receiver, he could develop into a solid wideout. Dupre gained more than 43 percent of his yards the past two seasons on deep receptions. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

167. Leo Koloamatangi, C, Hawai’i

A favorite of PFF offensive line analyst Taylor Wright, Koloamatangi has potential at both guard and center after allowing only six pressures on 463 attempts in 2016. He brings power to the run game where his 78.9 grade ranked fifth among the nation’s centers last season. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

168. Chad Williams, WR, Grambling

Williams impressed at the Senior Bowl with his route-running and abilities in contested ball situations. His athleticism shows up better on film than it did in Mobile, as he looks like a solid mid-Day-3 selection. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

169. Davon Godchaux, Defensive Interior, LSU

A developmental pass-rusher, although Godchaux must bulk up to succeed in the NFL, he has the athleticism to impact passing downs in the pros. Godchaux ended the season with 17 knockdowns in 2016. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

170. Charles Walker, Defensive Interior, Oklahoma

Walker was excellent in limited opportunities back in 2015, but suffered multiple concussions in his final season at Oklahoma. The redshirt junior took a huge gamble opting for early entry to the NFL, considering that he managed only 144 snaps last year. Walker has potential, but is far from a slam dunk Day 2 selection. He has too many negative plays on tape, and fails to dominate for extended stretches. For a man of his size and length, Walker allowed himself to be reach-blocked alarmingly regularly. His gap discipline is also poor, and he missed too many tackles. Although the negatives are numerous, Walker does possess the raw tools to emerge as an NFL-caliber defensive tackle. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

171. Ryan Switzer, WR, North Carolina

Switzer is a nice mid-round prospect for a team in need of a slot receiver. He has impressive footwork and his quickness is high-level, meaning he can reach top speed almost immediately out of his breaks. He also has consistent hands — a necessity for slot receivers. He averaged 2.73 yards per route run out of the slot last season, 11th in the NCAA. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

172. Hunter Dimick, Edge, Utah

Hunter Dimick has some of the best straight-line explosiveness of anyone in this class. He led all of FBS with 83 pressures last season. Dimick can be a bull-rush/edge setter at the next level, but may not offer much else. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

173. Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo

Talk about a nose for the end zone: Roberts led all college tight ends last season with 16 touchdowns, eight more than Evan Engram, who had the second-highest total. Our highest-ranked tight end this season in terms of overall grade, Roberts burst onto the scene in his senior year after clawing his way onto the team in Toledo back in 2013. Roberts also demonstrated that he was a capable blocker in 2016, both in the run game and in pass protection. He finished the season with the 15th-highest run-blocking grade among the 78 qualified draft-eligible tight ends while allowing just one QB pressure on 62 pass-blocking snaps. Roberts is raw, but his journey up to this point has been rather impressive. Given the production he’s shown on the field, this is a player worth gambling on. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

174. Josh Jones, S, NC State

Jones blew up the NFL Combine, showing a great combination of size and speed that often showed up on tape. He finished 2016 with six pass breakups, tied for seventh in the nation. He has to do a better job of tackling as he missed 13 last season, ranking him 61st in tackling efficiency among FBS safeties. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

175. Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson

Gallman’s skill-set fit well in Clemson’s spread offense. He has a nice jump cut and shows the ability to quickly plant and get vertical, which ideally suits him for a zone-blocking scheme. He broke a lot of tackle attempts from defensive backs in college. Gallman is inconsistent in how much he gains on final contact, and there were times where he would get stonewalled at first contact by linebackers due to high pad level. While he is sufficient as a receiver, his pass protection is a concern, likely leaving him relegated to a backup role in the NFL. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

176. Jack Tocho, CB, NC State

Tocho has intriguing size at 6-foot, 202-pounds, and he had an excellent 2016, as his 86.4 coverage grade ranked ninth in the nation. He works well in off coverage and has potential in press; keep an eye on Tocho in the middle rounds, even in a deep cornerback class. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

177. Tanner Gentry, WR, Wyoming

Gentry is an underrated prospect who had some very impressive tape at Wyoming. He has a very large catch radius and hands strong enough to make some circus catches. He’s very physical at the catch point, which will help at the next level. He can be a deep threat out of the gate, as his 49 deep targets last year were the most among all FBS receivers.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

178. Tanner Vallejo, LB, Boise State

It’s been an odd career path for Vallejo, who showed great potential in 2014 with a 93.1 overall grade that ranked second in the nation. He played through injury, perhaps hurting his production, but there’s plenty of intrigue if he can cut down on his 28 missed tackles from the last two seasons. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

179. Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State

It’s not often that 5-foot-8, sub-180-pound running backs make an impact in the NFL, but Pumphrey could very well be that exception. He became the all-time rushing leader in FBS last season, and he’s done so in a “pro-style” offense that is more “pro-style” than some NFL teams anymore. He’s never going to get a lot of yards after contact, but he will be able to find and hit holes as an inside runner that bigger backs just cannot. If utilized correctly, he can have an effective role in many offenses. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

180. Elijah Hood, RB, North Carolina

Hood wasn’t quite as impressive in 2016 as he was in the year before when he ranked second in this draft class with an average of 4.1 yards after contact, but he still had some impressive runs in 2016. His 19 runs of 15-plus yards were both more and a higher percentage of his total runs than speedster teammate T.J. Logan. He’s as fluid as some other big backs, but he remains one of the best in gaining yards through contact. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

181. Noah Brown, WR, Ohio State

Brown is a tough receiver to project, as he saw just 50 targets in his entire career at Ohio State. Still, in those limited opportunities he showed big-play potential thanks to his ability to make spectacular catches and strong physicality at the catch point. He’s also a very impressive run blocker, (71.9 run-blocking grade, 16th among receivers that played at least 200 snaps), which will help him at the next level. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

182. Daniel Brunskill, OT, San Diego State

A tight end turned tackle, Brunskill is undersized for an NFL offensive tackle, but he could fill the role as a tight end/tackle hybrid as he continues to put on weight. He had a strong career at San Diego State, moving well in space on his way to an 81.4 run-blocking grade that ranked ninth in the nation in 2016, and he could get a long look from zone-heavy rushing teams. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

183. Arthur Maulet, CB, Memphis

Maulet had a breakout 2016 season, finishing third in the nation with an 89.6 overall grade. He tied for fourth in the nation with 11 pass breakups, though he lacked consistency on a weekly basis, and his height (5-foot-9 1/2) and a lack of athleticism will challenge him at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

184. Jordan Sterns, S, Oklahoma State

Sterns burst onto the scene in 2016, earning an 84.5 overall grade that ranked seventh in the nation. He has box safety potential, as he works downhill in the running game while showing the skills to excel in short coverage. Sterns must improve his tackling, as he missed 39 of his 328 attempts over the last three seasons.— Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

185. Jalen Robinette, WR, Air Force

Robinette is an intriguing project at receiver in this draft, as his numbers at Air Force were very solid. He averaged 5.48 yards per route run, which was more than a yard better than the second-best receiver. Still, much of that had to do with the offense, and Robinette lacks speed and quickness to separate against NFL receivers. That said, he has tools that NFL teams will look at with a later pick. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

186. Najee Murray, CB, Kent State

Murray’s 86.0 overall grade ranked 15th among cornerbacks in 2016 as he broke up nine passes and intercepted two more while allowing a passer rating of only 38.4 into his coverage, good for seventh in the nation among cornerbacks with at least 40 targets. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

187. Ben Gedeon, LB, Michigan

Gedeon tested well at the combine, but does not show the same athleticism on film. 30 of 37 balls thrown into his coverage between 2014 and 2016 were completed, and he failed to successfully defend any of them. He can be a solid contributor in the run game because of his willingness to take on blockers and ability to stay square to the point of attack. He should also be able to help on special teams. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

188. Jamal Agnew, CB, San Diego

Agnew may have measured in at just 5-foot-9 ½ and 186 pounds at his pro day, but he plays physically and fearlessly in every phase of his game. He reportedly ran his 40 in the low 4.4s, which is not surprising, considering the explosive speed he shows in the return game. His open-field running and physicality in both coverage and against the run should allow him to be drafted in the middle of day three. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

189. Chad Kelly, QB, Ole Miss

It’s often a combination of great throws and head-scratchers when watching Kelly, and when taking his off-field concerns out of the equation, he has a skill-set worth looking to develop at the next level. At the very least, Kelly is willing to take chances and let his playmakers make plays for him, but the same aggressiveness that can win a game will also lead to losses when he turns the ball over at inopportune times. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

190. Jehu Chesson, WR, Michigan

Chesson has a big frame and knows how to use it to his advantage at the catch point. Unfortunately he doesn’t have a high ceiling, and may max out as a player who can move the chains with a few catches a game against zone coverage. He has solid hands, only dropping two passes last season. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

191. Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming

Hill is on the bigger side of the size spectrum and is more likely to break tackles than make defenders miss. That didn’t prevent him from making big plays, though, as his 30 breakaway runs were third-most in the draft class. He doesn’t have a lot of experience as a receiver and his struggles in pass protection may limit him to an early-down player, at least initially. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

192. Damien Mama, G, USC

Mama has limited scheme fits at the next level, but can create movement on the ground when he locks onto defenders. He improved greatly in pass protection in 2016, allowing only eight QB pressures after surrendering 18 in 2015 on a similar number of attempts. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

193. Woody Baron, Defensive Interior, Virginia Tech

Baron lacked consistency during his career with the Hokies, but made a string of marvelous plays as a senior. He is particularly lethal collapsing the pocket, finishing with seven sacks in 2016. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

194. Tyus Bowser, Edge, Houston

Bowser has all the edge traits, but he’ll have to be taught the skill-set. Bowser only rushed the passer 534 times over the past three seasons and racked up the majority of his pressure on egregiously un-athletic offensive tackles. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

195. Casey Sayles, Defensive Interior, Ohio

Sayles is undersized for a defensive tackle, but has graded solidly as a run-defender for three straight seasons. In 2016, Sayles improved his pass-rush to the tune of six sacks, four QB hits, 27 hurries, and two batted passes on 359 pass-rushing snaps. 

196. Daeshon Hall, Edge, Texas A&M

Hall has the frame that defensive line coaches would kill for, but a complete lack of strength at this point pushes him down our board. He had 15 fewer pressures than teammate Myles Garrett (38 vs. 53) despite 97 more pass-rushing snaps (424 vs 327). — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

197. Adam Bisnowaty, OT, Pittsburgh

Bisnowaty had a solid career at Pittsburgh, and he’s shown some potential to play in a zone scheme at the next level. The Pittsburgh scheme protected him in the pass game, where his 76.1 pass-block grade ranked right around average in the draft class. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

198. Arian Penton, CB, Missouri

While he had the propensity to give up the big play (in 2016 he gave up six receptions of over 30 yards), Penton yielded just a 50.3 completion percentage against on 171 throws into his coverage between 2014 and 2016. He had six break-ups and five interceptions in 2016, one of them coming in a stellar performance against Arkansas that saw him surrender just three receptions for 9 total yards on eight throws into his coverage. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

199. Alex Anzalone, LB, Florida

Anzalone is a good athlete, but is too easily controlled by blockers at all levels. He also tends to stop his feet and miss tackles; he finished just 240th in tackling efficiency among FBS inside linebackers last season. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

200. Joshua Dobbs, QB, Tennessee

Dobbs has a knack for keeping you around just as you’re ready to write him off. He’s been wildly inconsistent with his accuracy throughout his career at Tennessee, but he tied for the national lead with 12 touchdowns when pressured, and he’s the best running quarterback in the draft. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

 

201. Davis Webb, QB, California

After four weeks in 2016, Webb was sitting at No. 4 in overall PFF grades among quarterbacks. However, Week 5 through the end of the season saw him finish dead last, at 142nd. At his best, Webb can make impressive downfield throws with touch or zip, but his decision-making and accuracy were too inconsistent to rely on him as more than a developmental option. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

202. Tim Patrick, WR, Utah

Patrick is an extremely raw route runner that will need to improve if he wants to succeed at the next level. He can still offer vertical-threat ability for an NFL team, though, as he’s got the speed to get behind defenders and a huge catch radius that allows him to make receptions even if he doesn’t separate. Over a third of his targets last season (34.1 percent) came on deep passes.  — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

203. Isaac Asiata, G, Utah

An ideal fit for a gap scheme, Asiata picked up a big chunk of his solid 79.2 run-blocking grade as the puller in Utah’s scheme. He has to do a better job in pass protection, particularly against stunts and twists. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

204. Gabe Marks, WR, Washington State

Marks had fantastic production at Washington State, but he is more than just a product of that system. He’s a great route runner who knows how to attack at all levels of the field. He’s likely not fast or strong enough to play outside consistently, but his quick footwork and strong hands should do well in the slot. Over the past two seasons, Washington State QBs have a rating of 119.8 when targeting Marks. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

205. Travin Dural, WR, LSU

Although Dural showed off his athletic ability at LSU, he was never able to put up big numbers due to the Tigers’ inept passing game. However, he became a reliable target last season, as he did not drop any of his 28 catchable targets in 2016. — Zoltán Buday, @PFF_Zoltan

206. Darius Hamilton, Defensive Interior, Rutgers

Hamilton posted an overall grade of 86.3 in 2016, making him the second-highest graded defensive interior prospect out of the Big 10 this season. While unable to get back to the pass-rushing form he showed in 2014 when he amassed eight sacks and 46 total pressures, he did put up 26 run stops last year. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

207. Jalen Reeves-Maybin, LB, Tennessee

Reeves-Maybin managed just 114 snaps in 2016 due to injury, but had a strong 2015 campaign in run support. Despite missing 17 tackles, he racked up 55 total defensive stops, also adding six sacks and five QB hits on pass rushes. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

208. Sean Harlow, OT, Oregon State

A powerful run blocker, Harlow’s 82.8 run-block grade ranked seventh in the nation in 2016. He has work to do in pass protection, where he fell from a 75.2 grade in 2015 to only 49.4 in 2016, good for 203rd in the nation. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

209. Garrett Sickels, Edge, Penn State

Sickels has some of the most relentless hands in this class, but they don’t do much to make up for a complete lack of athleticism. His production wasn’t anything special, either, as he had the 39th-highest pass-rushing grade at the edge position last year. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

210. Calvin Munson, LB, San Diego State

He can time blitzes well and work off stunts effectively, which led to him posting 24 sacks over the past three seasons at San Diego State. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

211. Treyvon Hester, DI, Toledo

Hester’s 87.1 overall grade from 2016 is eighth-best among defensive interior prospects in this draft class. He made 77 total run stops between 2014 and 2016, and is also a capable bull-rusher on passing downs. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

212. T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina

Logan ran the fastest 40 time among running backs at the combine, and his speed shows up on film, too. It hasn’t translated into big plays quite as often as other players, but he can be a treat as both a runner and receiver. He also adds value as a kick returner, where he had four kick return touchdowns in four years. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

213. Jeremiah Ledbetter, DI, Arkansas

Ledbetter is between an interior defensive lineman and edge defender, and could bring some versatility to a defensive front. He’s picked up nine sacks, 12 QB hits, and 21 hurries on 664 rushes over the last two seasons. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

214. Jake Eldrenkamp, G, Washington

With some highlight-reel blocks as a puller, Eldrenkamp can have success in a gap scheme, and his work as a puller was a big part of his 82.6 run grade that ranked 18th in the nation in 2016. He made strides in pass protection last season, but still had his issues against better defensive fronts. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

215. Kenny Golladay, WR, Northern Illinois

Golladay may struggle to find playing time early on because of his lack of ability to consistently separate, but he could develop down the road. He has very impressive hands, dropping only five passes combined the past two seasons (3 percent drop rate). He’s shown the ability to make circus catches, which may help him land on a team for future development. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

216. Marquez White, CB, Florida State

There’s some boom-or-bust to White’s game, as he’ll make some highlight-reel plays, but his 17 missed tackles on only 77 attempts have also led to a number of big plays. White’s has to work to take better angles, but his solid coverage grades should give him a look toward the end of the draft. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

217. Treston Decoud, CB, Oregon State

Decoud is a tall and long press cornerback that would be a perfect fit in a cover-3 heavy defense. Decoud had 11 plays on the ball in 2016 with two interceptions and nine passes broken up. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

218. Damore’ea Stringfellow, WR, Mississippi

Stringfellow will have NFL teams taking a look at him late due to his size and ability to use it. He’s got a large catch radius and can win at the catch point with his physicality. He’ll need to improve inconsistent hands, as he dropped 10 of 56 catchable balls last season. That said, he could turn himself into a nice red-zone threat for an NFL offense. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

219. Joey Ivie, DI, Florida

Joey Ivie graded positively both as a run-defender and as a pass-rusher in 2016. He generated an interior pass-rush to the tune of four sacks, seven hits, and 13 pressures. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

220. Devonte Fields, Edge, Louisville

Fields is frustrating as a pass-rusher, as he was extremely inconsistent in college. He flashes exceptional quickness at times and then disappears for whole games at others. If he can recapture his four-game stretch to finish his junior season where he racked up nine sacks, he’ll find a roster spot. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

221. Pharaoh Brown, TE, Oregon

Brown’s 75.2 run-blocking grade, along with his average of 1.89 yards per route run out of the slot, both ranked within the top 10 of draft-eligible tight ends. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

222. Fred Ross, WR, Mississippi State

Ross has a lot of work to do to make it in the NFL, as he really struggles to beat press coverage and doesn’t have the speed or route running to separate consistently. But if he can improve there, he has impressively effortless hands and can make tough catches in traffic. His 2.32 yards per route run last year were 12th-most among SEC receivers with 50-plus targets. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

223. DeAndre Scott, CB, Akron

Scott had a nice career at Akron, allowing a passer rating of only 51.7 into his coverage over the last three years while allowing only two touchdowns over the last two years. He had an outstanding 2015 season, as he picked up six interceptions and broke up seven other passes. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

224. Josh Boutte, G, LSU

Boutte had a strong season, particularly a dominant game against Missouri, as he took good angles in LSU’s zone-blocking scheme. He doesn’t create a lot of movement in the run game, but has a chance to succeed as a guy who doesn’t lose often at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

225. C.J. Beathard, QB, Iowa

Beathard ranked 13th in the draft class in adjusted completion percentage, at 73.5 percent. He recorded the third-highest percentage of drops in the draft class, at 9.1 percent. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

226. Jarron Jones, DI, Notre Dame

Jones has incredible size for the position but was often injured at Notre Dame. His run-stop percentage of 10.4 ranks No. 9 in the draft class, so he can be productive when healthy. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

227. Matthew Dayes, RB, North Carolina State

Dayes has excellent acceleration and change-of-direction skills. Those, coupled with his vision, make him an excellent zone runner. However, his lack of top speed and yards after contact likely limit his impact as purely a change-of-pace player.— Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

228. Adam Butler, DI, Vanderbilt

Adam Butler recorded four sacks, no hits, and 28 hurries on 377 pass-rush snaps in 2016. Butler has an array of pass-rush moves and can line up and produce both at DT and DE. He should be able to provide a team with valuable reserve snaps. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

229. Keith Brown, LB, Western Kentucky

Brown was a run-stopping specialist for the Hilltoppers, as he ranked third in FBS in run-stop percentage in 2016. While a better fit inside for a 3-4 team where he has less room to operate, he still posted solid coverage grades last season thanks, in part due to two interceptions and four pass breakups. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

230. Josh Tupou, DI, Colorado

Tupou is a massive human being and run-down nose tackle with better athleticism than his size would indicate. He provided 21 run stops on 342 run-defense snaps in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

231. Mike Tyson, CB, Cincinnati

Tyson had a breakout 2016 season, finishing with seven pass breakups and five interceptions after totaling only three pass breakups over the previous two seasons. He may get looked at as a safety at the next level. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

232. Isaac Rochell, DI, Notre Dame

Rochell has shown well in the run game and can provide value as a base defensive end in a four-man front or at 5-technique in a three-man front. He’s been inconsistent as a pass-rusher, where he only notched 18 knockdowns (six sacks, 12 QB hits) on his 1,090 snaps over the last three years. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

233. Daikiel Shorts, Jr., WR, West Virginia

Shorts Jr. has some of the strongest, most impressive hands among any receiver in this class. He doesn’t run a ton of routes besides crossing the field, and isn’t quite as quick as you’d hope for a slot receiver. Still, his 82.3 overall grade last season ranked 20th in FBS, and shows that he could develop into a security-blanket slot receiver down the line. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

234. Robert Davis, WR, Georgia State

Davis is an athletic monster; his NFL Combine SPARQ score ranks in the 98.8th percentile among NFL receivers. However, he’s incredibly raw as a receiver, and needs to work on a lot of things. Specifically, he needs to translate that athleticism to tape, as it often didn’t in college. His 2.38 yards per route run last season (21st among Power-5 receivers with 100-plus targets) show that he was productive even without refinement. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

235. Dylan Bradley, DI, Southern Mississippi

Dylan Bradley will be forced to make the switch from DT to DE at the NFL level. Bradley can win with quickness or with power when he is lined up inside, but his best fit is to provide rotational snaps at defensive end. He generated 37 QB pressures on 350 pass-rushing snaps in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

236. Keon Hatcher, WR, Arkansas

Hatcher has the tools that NFL teams look for in a receiver, with strong hands and the ability to beat press coverage. His biggest problem is his lack of route adjustments mid-route, which lead to a lot of collisions and failed routes if defenders are in his way. But he averaged 2.56 yards per route run last year, third in the SEC, so he can still be an effective receiver. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

237. Nick Mullens, QB, Southern Mississippi

Mullens lacks the ideal size of an NFL quarterback, but he has good accuracy to the short and intermediate area of the field. His adjusted completion percentage of 82.1 in the 6-10-yard range ranked third in the draft class. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

238. Alex Barrett, Edge, San Diego State

While he played a number of snaps on the interior at only 255 pounds at San Diego State, Barrett projects as more of an edge player at the next level. He picked up seven sacks, six QB hits, and 31 hurries on only 388 rushes in 2016 on his way to the No. 19 overall grade among interior defensive linemen, at 85.8. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

239. Darrell Daniels, TE, Washington

Daniels is a pass-catching move tight end that not only gets open, but he also averaged another 8.9 yards after completion in 2016. Daniels frequently lined up in the slot and has value as a second tight end. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

240. Jadar Johnson, S, Clemson

Johnson gave up just one touchdown into his coverage last season compared to 10 total passes defended. However, his zero run stops on 173 snaps played when aligned within 8 yards of the line of scrimmage last season suggest he’s only a fit as a free safety for a cover-3 base scheme. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

241. Jerome Lane, WR, Akron

Lane is a nice late-round project player, as his game lacks refinement necessary for the next level — particularly his route running, which needs a lot of work. He’s a natural hands catcher, and has the size to win at the catch point, which makes him a potentially effective red-zone threat. He dropped just four of 66 passes last year. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

242. Joe Williams, RB, Utah

Williams has great speed, but can’t really create on his own at the first level. Put him behind a really good offensive line to allow him to use his speed as much as possible, but otherwise, he is limited in potential impact. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

243. Jordan Westerkamp, WR, Nebraska

Westerkamp is a late-round slot receiver with lots of potential that could be a steal for a team. His route running is impressive — he was running NFL slot routes last season. He also has good hands and quickness that helped make up for a lack of speed and physicality, his biggest issues. He averaged 2.56 yards per route run from the slot last year, second in the Big Ten. — Bryson Vesnaver, @PFF_Bryson

244. Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson

Leggett’s 339 yards after the catch last season ranked sixth among all FBS tight ends. He had just nine drops on 151 total targets between 2014 and 2016. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

245. Kendell Beckwith, LB, LSU

Beckwith’s torn ACL suffered in late November and poor tackling efficiency (ranked 260th among FBS inside linebackers in 2016) make it difficult to slot him in the draft, but his aggressiveness in short-yardage plays allows him to come up with big stops in key situations. He posted a total of 111 defensive stops between 2014 and 2016, and when asked to take on a heavier role on pass-rushes in 2015, he posted 32 total QB pressures. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

246. Ifeadi Odenigbo, Edge, Northwestern

Odenigbo’s career at Northwestern is odd to say the least. By far their most effective pass-rusher, they wouldn’t let him see the field on run downs, playing only 45.4 percent of Northwestern’s snaps the last three years. He’s 258 pounds though and fairly well built, so that is concerning. Odenigbo has a quality bull-rush and spin move with little else in his repertoire to date. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

247. Keion Adams, Edge, Western Michigan

Though undersized, Adams offers some intrigue that very few late rounders in this class can match. Adams’ 36 hurries were second to only Tarell Basham in the MAC. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

248. Montae Nicholson, S, Michigan State

After two pass breakups against Furman in Week 1 of 2016, Nicholson’s only other defensed pass last season was an interception against Rutgers in Week 11. That being said, he did not give up a throw into his coverage longer than 16 yards until the finale against Penn State, and his 4.42-second 40-yard dash and 6-foot-2 frame has certainly put him on NFL radars. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

249. Des Lawrence, CB, North Carolina

Lawrence is a competitive player who will push for a roster spot with his new team. Lawrence didn’t allow a touchdown last season and opposing quarterbacks only had a 60.1 QB rating when throwing into his primary coverage. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

250. Tarik Cohen, RB, North Carolina A&T

Cohen is a little jitterbug whose value at the next level is likely to come on third down and special teams. He runs impressive routes out of the backfield and is elusive in space, but at 5-foot-6 ½ and 179 pounds, he may not be drafted, despite running his 40-yard dash in 4.42 at the combine. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

251. Harvey Langi, LB, BYU

At just under 6-foot-2 and 251 pounds., Langi has ideal NFL ILB size, although he needs significant work getting off blocks. He played on the edge in 2016, but as an inside linebacker the year prior, opposing QBs had a passer rating of just 44.4 when throwing into his coverage. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

252. Matt Milano, LB, Boston College

Milano’s 84.7 overall grade ranked 23rd in the nation in 2016 as he’s showed an all-around game with strong grades agianst the run, in coverage, and rushing the passer. He missed only 10 tackles on 137 attempts over the last three seasons. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

253. Chuck Clark, S, Virginia Tech

Clark can play strong safety or slot cornerback, and is known for his strong play against the run. In three seasons, he amassed 83 stops while missing just 19 of 230 tackle attempts. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

254. Max Halpin, C, Western Kentucky

Halpin’s 82.7 overall grade ranked 12th in the nation among centers and his 86.0 pass-blocking grade ranked eighth. He is quick off the ball in the run game and can compete for playing time in a zone-heavy scheme. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

255. Josh Holsey, CB, Auburn

Holsey got his hands on eight passes (three interceptions and five pass breakups) on only 52 targets, with the highlight of his season coming in Week 1, as he held his own against Clemson WR Mike Williams while allowing only one catch into his coverage on the night. — Steve Palazzolo, @PFF_Steve

256. Patrick Gamble, DI, Georgia Tech

Gamble has NFL pass-rush ability up and down the line of scrimmage. At 6-foot-4 and 277 pounds, he can win with length or high-level hand usage. Gamble recorded eight sacks, five QB hits, and 13 hurries on 354 pass-rushing snaps in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

257. Jamir Tillman, WR, Navy

Tillman is a developmental project who was very productive in Navy’s limited passing game, as his 3.54 yards per route run ranked ninth in the nation. His big frame and strong hands make him physical at the catch point and allow him to make contested catches. In addition, he changes direction relatively well for his size. — Zoltán Buday, @PFF_Zoltan

 

258. Nick D’Avanzo, DI, New Mexico

D’Avanzo graded positively as a pass rusher and a run-defender in 2016. While he did show versatility by lining up at DT and DE, he will have an uphill battle to make an NFL roster. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

259. Kyle Fuller, C, Baylor

Kyle Fuller graded positively as a pass blocker in a pass-heavy scheme at Baylor for three-straight seasons. In 2016, he allowed one sack, two QB hits, and four hurries on 536 pass-blocking snaps. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

260. Will Kreitler, C, UNLV

Kreitler was stingy in pass protection in 2016, giving up no sacks with just one hit and six QB hurries. However, at just over 6-foot and 292 pounds, he likely does not meet the size requirements for many teams. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

261. Anthony McMeans, C, New Mexico State

McMeans ranked eighth among all FBS centers in pass-blocking efficiency last season, as he yielded no sacks or hits and just eight hurries. While impressive, his combine performance showed he is lacking athletically (5.74-second 40-yard dash and 8.59 3-cone), and consequently, may not be drafted.

262. Zach Terrell, QB, Western Michigan

Zach Terrell had the luxury of throwing passes to our top wide receiver, Corey Davis. Terrell’s adjusted completion percentage of 81.0 ranks first in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

263. Jonathan McLaughlin, G, Virginia Tech

McLaughlin can anchor well against a bull-rush as a pass protector and his pass-blocking efficiency of 98.0 ranks sixth among all tackles in the draft class. McLaughlin’s run-block percentage of 98.3 ranks 14th in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

264. Cooper Rush, QB, Central Michigan

Cooper Rush has three-straight years of positive passing grades. Rush’s 70.8 adjusted completion percentage in 2016 ranks 18th in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

265. Jermaine Eluemunor, G, Texas A&M

For being nearly 6-foot-4 and over 330 pounds, Eluemunor ran surprisingly well at the combine (5.22-second 40-yard dash). He is a better fit at guard at the next level, but played right tackle for Texas A&M, and did not yield a single pressure in four of his final six college games. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

266. David Sharpe, OT, Florida

Sharpe is a massive human being at 6-foot-6, 343 pounds. He yielded three sacks and three hits in 2016. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

267. Jerod Evans, QB, Virginia Tech

Evans’ decision to declare was a surprise, to say the least. Although raw, he has the physical tools to develop in the NFL. In 2016, he ranked seventh in the nation with an accuracy percentage on deep passes of 52.0. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

268. Eduardo Middleton, G, Washington State

Middleton played in a pass-first offense at Washington State and has logged 2,432 pass protection snaps over the last three seasons. During that three-year span, Middleton allowed only seven sacks, eight QB hits, and 34 hurries. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

269. Collin Buchanan, OT, Miami (Ohio)

Buchanan can play at guard or tackle. He allowed three sacks, one QB hit, and 12 hurries on 419 pass-rushing snaps in 2016. Buchanan’s pass-blocking efficiency of 97.0 ranks 30th among tackles in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

270. Dane Evans, QB, Tulsa

Evans excels at throwing deep passes and will be available on the Day 3 of the draft. Evans’ 39.3 adjusted completion percentage on deep passes (targeted 20 or more yards downfield) ranks13th in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

271. Jonnu Smith, TE, Florida International

Smith is a bit undersized, but he’s an above-average athlete at the tight end position who runs good underneath routes and moves well with the ball in his hands. Smith’s size will prohibit him from being an effective in-line blocker, but he moves well enough where he could develop into a competent run blocker in a “move” role. As a receiver, he can get a bit lackadaisical at the catch point; he can allow defenders through his back too easily and he lets the ball come to him rather than attacking it out of the air. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy

272. Ben Braden, OT, Michigan

Braden played both guard and tackle for Michigan. He allowed two sacks, five QB hits, and 13 hurries on 355 pass-blocking snaps in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

273. Sefo Liufau, QB, Colorado

Although limited, Liufau tied for fourth in the nation with an accuracy percentage of 66.7 under pressure. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

274. Cole Hikutini, TE, Louisville

Hikutini is one of the more under-the-radar receiving tight ends in this class. He has an excellent understanding of how to generate separation, catching 69 of 92 targets in his final two years at Louisville (75.0 catch percentage). — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

275. Chad Wheeler, OT, USC

Wheeler was highly efficient pass blocker in 2016 and only allowed one sack, five QB hits, and 12 hurries on 513 pass-blocking snaps. Wheeler needs to add weight to his frame to be more effective as a run blocker in the NFL. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

276. Evan Baylis, TE, Oregon

Evan Baylis was a somewhat forgotten tight end by the end of the 2016 Ducks season due to depth at the position. Baylis graded positively as a run blocker for three-straight seasons. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

277. Ukeme Eligwe, LB, Georgia Southern

Eligwe’s NFL transition may be extremely difficult given his speed and change-of-direction issues, but he was a productive player at Georgia Southern. He registered 44 total defensive stops in 2016, and Ohio’s Blair Brown is the only ILB we have a draftable grade on that posted a better tackling efficiency in the passing game. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

278. Andreas Knappe, OT, Connecticut

Knappe improved considerably as a pass protector in 2016. He finished the season allowing two sacks, three QB hits, and 11 pressures on 510 pass-blocking snaps. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

279. Johnny Mundt, TE, Oregon

Mundt didn’t get as many reps at Oregon as talent would warrant due to scheme and unbelievably rare depth at the TE position. He does have three-straight years of positive run-blocking grades. Mundt has shown he can line up in the slot, as well, with 12 catches for 206 yards and one TD coming in the slot in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

280. Marcus Oliver, LB, Indiana

Oliver posted the second-best run-stop percentage among Big Ten inside linebacker draft prospects last season, as he does an excellent job of reading his keys and finding the ball. His speed and athletic limitations should keep him off the field on third down, but his ability to anchor against blockers and shed make him a viable run defender for 3-4 teams. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

281. Will Holden, OT, Vanderbilt

Will Holden is a better run-blocking tackle than a pass protector. Holden’s 92.4 run-block success percentage ranks 31st among all tackles in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

282. Kai Nacua, S, BYU

Nacua’s athletic limitations may prevent him from consistently seeing the field at the next level, but he put together three years of outstanding coverage numbers at BYU. He allowed just one touchdown into his coverage in that span while intercepting 14 passes and breaking up another seven. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

283. Eric Wilson, LB, Cincinnati

Wilson doesn’t make many impact plays because he is sluggish to attack and close at times, but he is a solid tackler and consistently avoided giving up the big play in coverage. In the final seven games of 2016, he missed just two tackles, and on 64-combined throws into his coverage the past two seasons, he yielded just three receptions longer than 15 yards. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

284. Shalom Luani, S, Washington State

Luani has extensive experience playing in the box and is capable of contributing at the next level in dime situations. He racked up eight interceptions and six pass breakups on throws into his coverage in 2015 and 2016, but his 47 missed tackles over the past two seasons is a major concern. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

285. Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP

Jones is a smaller back and has had some injury issues in the past, but when healthy, he’s capable of being a big playmaker. Jones was just shy of 1,000 rushing yards in 2016 just on his 28 runs of 15-plus yards alone. His 996 yards on breakaway runs were second-most in the nation. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

286. Shock Linwood, RB, Baylor

Linwood made a habit of eluding tacklers at Baylor, forcing 37 missed tackles as a runner in 2016. Linwood’s elusive rating of 77.4 ranks 14th in the draft class. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

287. I’Tavius Mathers, RB, Middle Tennessee State

A former Ole Miss transfer, Mathers made a huge impact in his only year as a starter for MTSU as both a runner and a receiver out of the backfield. His 85 missed tackles forced on offense were third-most in the draft class, behind only FSU’s Dalvin Cook and Toledo’s Kareem Hunt. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

288. Elijah McGuire, RB, UL Lafayette

McGuire was one of the most effective running backs in 2014, as he led the nation in both elusive rating (127.5) and receiving yards per route run (2.73). He hasn’t quite reached that level again in the two years since, but shows the ability to make an impact in both the run and pass games. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

289. Justin Davis, RB, USC

Davis showcased his ability when he can get into space with the fourth-highest elusive rating in the draft class, although it was on a smaller sample size. He had major issues in pass protection, though, as he allowed one pressure roughly every three snaps in pass pro, the worst mark among draft-eligible backs with a significant number of snaps in pass protection. — Matt Claassen, @PFF_Matt

290. Al-Quadin Muhammad, Edge, Miami

Muhammad impressed in his lone starting season at Miami, flashing the potential to emerge as a pro. He registered 41 combined pressures at Miami in 2015. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

291. Ken Ekanem, Edge, Virginia Tech

Although more of an effort rusher, Ekanem was highly productive at Virginia Tech, registering 27 sacks, 22 hits, and 81 QB pressures in three seasons. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

292. Breon Borders, CB, Duke

Borders frustrates because of his inconsistency, which lurches him from high-end performances to incompetence. Although he allowed a QB rating of only 70.9 last season at Duke, he surrendered an average of over 20 yards per reception. — John Breitenbach, @PFF_John

293. Pita Taumoepenu, Edge, Utah

Pita Taumoepenu is well-suited to play a pass-rush specialist role in the NFL. Taumoepenu notched 10 sacks, nine QB hits, and 33 hurries on 382 pass-rushing snaps in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

294. Keionta Davis, Edge, Chattanooga

Davis played well at the Senior Bowl and impresses with his physique, at 6-foot-3, 271 pounds, with 34 1/8-inch arms. He also shows a solid burst and athleticism rushing off the edge, which should translate to him being drafted. — Josh Liskiewitz, @PFF_Josh

295. Dylan Donahue, Edge, West Georgia

Donahue displays NFL-level athleticism on film and played both off the ball and with his hand on the ground in college. He racked up 25.5 combined sacks between 2015 and 2016, and is capable of winning with both speed and power. He’ll clearly get a shot at the next level due to his athleticism and pass-rushing ability, and is likely to be a late-round pick. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

296. John Stepec, Edge, Toledo

Stiff as a board. Stepec has fantastic hands, but it’s unlikely to matter with how limited he is athletically. He produced 22 combined sacks and hits last season. — Mike Renner, @PFF_Mike

297. Kevin Maurice, DI, Nebraska

In 2016, Maurice graded positively as a run defender and as a pass-rusher. He contributed four sacks, seven hits, and 34 QB pressures on 403 pass-rushing snaps in 2016. Maurice is on the smaller side and would be largely limited to a backup role. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

298. Ja’Von Rolland-Jones, Edge, Arkansas State

Rolland-Jones is an undersized edge rusher that has produced at a high-level for the Arkansas State defense. Rolland-Jones had 17 sacks, eight hits, and 35 hurries on 359 pass-rushing snaps in 2016, and has 39 sacks over the last three seasons. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

299. Chunky Clements, DI, Illinois

Clements can provide back-up snaps in a defense that values an undersized and quick-penetrating defensive tackle. He recorded 50 total QB pressures and six batted passes in the last three seasons. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

300. Drew Morgan, WR, Arkansas

Morgan lined up both outside and in the slot for the Razorbacks. He added 5.7 yards after the catch per reception in 2016. — Jordan Plocher, @PFF_Jordan

    If 5 of the top 26 players in the country actually played for Alabama, the Crimson Tide would be able to beat the Jaguars most weekends.

  • pobodysnerfect

    Did I miss TJ Watt? Shouldn’t he be in the top 50 or so, considering that he’ll get drafted somewhere in there?

    • Phil

      Watt is #41

  • larry mckinney

    Jehu Chesson at 184? Should easily be in the late 160s.

  • OP Bolt

    Hard to believe a 2000+ yd RB and Doak Walker Award winner “needs to be more consistent in being a hammer”, and is only the 86th best football player in the draft. I predict no teams are going to be happier with their RB selections than the teams that get Foreman and Perine.

  • gksulgrave

    Something tells me at least one team is just going to print this out on Draft morning and call it a day.

    • nonono

      lmao

  • JudoPrince

    This draft is so deep at corner its disgusting. 18 of the top 100 players are CB’s. A team will end up with a corner in the 4th or 5th round that could have went in the 2nd during a typical draft year. A team in need of a CB like the Cowboys can easily wait until the end of the 3rd round to find a plug-in starter type.
