Dolphins selected Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Tankersley (6’1/199) made 30 starts in the Tigers’ secondary, amassing 22 pass breakups with nine interceptions and earning first-team All-ACC as a senior. PFF College charted Tankersley with a 44.6% completion rate and just one touchdown pass allowed in 2016. Tankersley bombed his vertical (29 ½") at the Combine, but ran fast (4.40) and showed adequate change-of-direction skills with a 7.00 three-cone time. Tankersley’s drawbacks are his athletic question marks and penalty proneness after being flagged seven times as a senior. He is also slightly old for a rookie, turning 24 in November. Still a quality press-man prospect, Tankersley has an outside chance to develop into a quality No. 2 cornerback.

Seahawks selected Michigan S Delano Hill with the No. 95 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Hill (6’1/216) made 26 starts in the Wolverines’ secondary, tallying seven career tackles for loss with three interceptions. Big Ten coaches voted him second-team all-conference in 2016. Hill ran 4.47 at the Combine, but struggled in other drills and managed a 38th-percentile cumulative SPARQ score. A stiff-hipped, straight-linish defensive back who tackles well but didn’t dominate in college, Hill profiles best as a kick and punt coverage maven in the David Bruton mold.

Lions selected Northern Illinois WR Kenny Golladay with the No. 96 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Golladay (6’4/218) spent two seasons at NIU after transferring from North Dakota, compiling a 160-2,285-18 (14.3 YPR) receiving line and earning first-team All-MAC from the conference’s coaches as a senior. PFF College charted Golladay with just five career drops among 165 catchable targets. Golladay held his own at the Combine, running 4.5-flat with adequate vertical (35 ½") and broad (10’0") jumps. While Golladay needs to get stronger and improve his route technique, he is an intriguing H/W/S prospect with sure hands and developmental upside. Even for a team that needs receiving help in Detroit, Golladay is more multi-year project than year-one contributor.

Steelers selected Tennessee CB Cameron Sutton with the No. 94 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Sutton (5’11/188) was a rare four-year starter in the Vols’ secondary, graduating as the school’s all-time leader in pass breakups (37) with seven interceptions. Sutton missed half of his senior season with a fractured ankle, but experienced no durability problems before that. He managed a 35th-pecentile athleticism workout in Indy, running 4.52 with underwhelming peripherals. Sutton earned praise for a solid Senior Bowl week, but he struggles in man coverage and misses way too many tackles. Short armed (30"), not a physical enough for the slot, and not athletic enough for the boundary, Sutton is low-probability pick.

Packers selected Auburn DT Montravius Adams with the No. 93 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Adams (6’4/304) made 36 starts on the Tigers’ defensive line, registering 21 career tackles for loss, 11 sacks, and three forced fumbles. He earned first-team All-SEC and second-team All-America as a senior. Adams mainly played nose tackle in college, but dabbled at defensive end and offers scheme versatility. Adams’ down-to-down consistency improved as a senior, and scouts at January’s Senior Bowl described his performance as "dominant" in Mobile. While he should push for early-down run-stopping snaps as a rookie, Adams’ pass-rush upside is limited. At his ceiling, Adams likely projects as a 3-5 sack-per-season player in the pros.
Apr 28 - 10:58 PM

Cowboys selected Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis with the No. 92 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Lewis (5’10/188) was a 30-game starter in the Wolverines’ secondary, graduating as Michigan’s all-time leader in pass breakups (45) and tallying 8.5 career tackles for loss with six interceptions. He earned first-team All-Big Ten as both a junior and senior and was a consensus first-team All-American in 2016. While Lewis’ college production is impressive, he committed 14 penalties the past three years, managed a 4.54 forty with diminutive size, and was charged with domestic violence in March. Lewis offers an ideal slot corner skill set, but sub-par athleticism and off-field issues give him a low floor.
Apr 28 - 10:55 PM

Rams selected Boston College S John Johnson with the No. 91 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Johnson (6’1/208) made 27 career starts in the B.C. secondary, amassing six tackles for loss, three forced fumbles, and six interceptions. He shined at January’s Senior Bowl practices – particularly excelling in punt coverage during the all-star game – and turned in solid Combine results with a 55th-percentile SPARQ score and impressive 6.72 three-cone time. Johnson racked up 30 special teams tackles over his final three seasons and has experience at boundary corner, slot corner, and both safety spots. He’s a high-floor prospect with a chance to develop into a starter.
Apr 28 - 10:55 PM

Seahawks selected CB Shaq Griffin with the No. 90 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Griffin (6’0/194) was a two-year starter at UCF, primarily playing corner but also dabbling at safety and finishing strong as a senior with 19 pass breakups and four interceptions. PFF College charted Griffin with just a 39.7% completion rate allowed in 2016. Griffin crushed the Combine, recording top-three SPARQ results among cornerbacks with 4.38 speed and springy vertical (38 ½") and broad (11’) jumps. Griffin’s run-support aggressiveness also stood out on tape. Long and athletic with plus ball skills, Griffin is an exciting traits-based prospect with starting-caliber tools. He is very Seahawk-y.
Apr 28 - 10:51 PM

Texans selected Texas RB D'Onta Foreman with the No. 89 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Foreman (6’0/233) turned pro after earning the 2016 Doak Walker award as college football’s top running back, wrapping his three-year career with a 431-2,774-20 (6.44 YPC) rushing line but only 13 receptions. While Foreman ran 4.45 at the Texas Pro Day and displays exceptional foot quickness for his size on tape, he lost six fumbles his final year in Austin and is suspect at best in the passing game with minimal receiving production and no experience in pro-style pass protection. A finesse runner in a power back’s body, Foreman frustrates with a repeated failure to beat first contact. Foreman looks like a boom-bust prospect who could conceivably become an NFL sensation, or fail to outlast his rookie deal.

Raiders selected UCLA DT Eddie Vanderdoes with the No. 88 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Vanderdoes (6’3/305) arrived at UCLA as the nation’s No. 1 defensive line recruit, yet battled repeated knee, foot, and weight problems, managing 12.5 career tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Vanderdoes ballooned north of 350 pounds at times before dropping weight during the pre-draft phase. Nonetheless physically gifted, Vanderdoes tested as a top-four athlete among defensive linemen at February’s Combine. While Vanderdoes has always been long on potential, he hasn’t realized it since high school. He could become a plus starter or fall out of the league before his rookie contract is up.

Giants selected Cal QB Davis Webb with the No. 87 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Beginning to plan for a post-Eli Manning future, the Giants are taking a flier on a player some people considered a first-round dark horse. Webb (6’5/229) transferred to Cal after he was beaten out by Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech, playing one year for the Bears and going 5-7 with a 61.6% completion rate, 6.9 YPA, and 37:12 TD-to-INT ratio. Webb is an above-average athlete with 79th-percentile SPARQ results, although he presented little to no scrambling threat in college. Compared to Nick Foles by Rookie Scouting Portfolio’s Matt Waldman, Webb struggled with ball location and showed erratic pocket presence on tape. Webb "looks the part" but probably starter-caliber passing skills and does not extend plays.

Chiefs traded up to select Toledo RB Kareem Hunt with the No. 86 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Hunt (5’11/216) graduated as the Rockets’ all-time leading rusher, posting a career line of 782-4,945-44 (6.32 YPC) with 73 receptions, including 41 grabs as a senior. Hunt earned Most Outstanding Player at January’s Senior Bowl, only to struggle at the Combine with a sluggish forty (4.62) and broad jump (9’11"). Rookie Scouting Portfolio’s Matt Waldman has compared Hunt to a Chester Taylor, Joique Bell-level No. 2 back or capable spot starter. While his athleticism doesn’t stand out, PFF College charted Hunt with the second-most missed tackles forced (98) in the nation in 2016, and Hunt fumbled just once on 856 college touches. We are big fans of Hunt and believe he'll give Spencer Ware a serious run for the Chiefs' starting job in camp.

Patriots selected T Antonio Garcia with the No. 85 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Garcia (6’6/302) made 42 starts at left tackle for the Trojans, earning first-team All-Sun Belt during a senior year where he didn’t allow a sack. An all-region high school basketball player, Garcia is an adequate athlete with quick feet and a finisher’s mentality. Garcia is lanky by NFL standards and struggles to carry weight, however, at times dipping into the 280s. Garcia’s arm length (33 3/8") is also less than ideal, and he turns 24 in December. An over-aged, small-school project, Garcia is a bit of a boom-bust prospect we could see emerge as a legitimate starting left tackle or get exposed quickly. He will act as the Patriots swing tackle early.

Bucs selected Penn State WR Chris Godwin with the No. 84 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

After adding DeSean Jackson in free agency and O.J. Howard in the first round, the Bucs nab yet another weapon for Jameis Winston with their third pick of the draft. Godwin (6’1/209) turned pro after three years as a Nittany Lion, finishing with a 154-2,421-18 (15.4 YPR) career receiving line. He only earned honorable mention All-Big Ten in 2016. Godwin’s stock soared Indy, recording a top-four SPARQ score among wideouts with a 4.42 forty and explosive 10-foot-6 broad jump. Godwin topped 1,100 yards at age 19 and scored 11 TDs last season as a 20-year-old. While he is still learning to use his speed and has room to improve after the catch, Godwin impressed with acrobatic plays on tape and stood out in Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception as this draft’s premier contested-catch receiver. Godwin is among the highest-ceiling prospects in a weak 2017 wideout class.
Apr 28 - 10:32 PM

Patriots selected Youngstown State DE Derek Rivers with the No. 83 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Rivers (6’4/248) was a three-year starter and four-year contributor on the Penguins’ D-Line, setting school records in sacks (41) and tackles for loss (56.5) and earning first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference three times. A tight end and linebacker in high school, Rivers’ athleticism showed up in Indy with 80th-percentile SPARQ results and 4.61 speed. It shows up on Rivers’ tape with a freakishly quick get-off and ability to drop into zone coverage. Rivers is making a huge jump in competition and has limited versatility as a left end only out of the FCS, but his motor never stops. Rivers has a chance to develop into a rich man’s Jabaal Sheard.
