Rotoworld's Evan Silva frowned upon the Los Angeles' Rams draft, assigning them a lowly "C-" grade.
First, the positive (as it were), because we are positive people. Silva views third-round safety selection John Johnson (out of Boston College) as having "a real chance to be year-one starter at free safety" and calls fourth-round wideout Josh Reynolds (Texas A&M) "[i]mmediately the Rams’ top true perimeter wideout." On the whole, though, Silva believes that the Rams were unable to truly bolster their roster. And just to pour salt on that wound, he writes that the team's trade up to No. 1 last spring to draft Cal QB Jared Goff "so far looks like a colossal disaster." Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke is scarcely more optimistic, assigning Los Angeles a "C." Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline assigned them a "B-," about as close as they get to an evaluation which they can meekly pin on the refrigerator. Thu, May 4, 2017 08:26:00 PM

Rams selected South Alabama TE Gerald Everett with the No. 44 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Everett (6’3/239) played basketball for most of his high school career and was therefore lightly recruited, spending 2012-2013 at community college, 2014 at now-defunct UAB, and his final two seasons at small-school South Alabama. Everett earned first-team All-Sun Belt in both years, posting a career 90-1,212-12 (13.5 YPR) receiving line. While undersized by NFL standards, Everett offers basketball-player athleticism with 4.62 speed and a 37 ½-inch vertical, long arms (33"), and rare vertical ability for a tight end. Everett was also a better blocker than expected on tape. While first-year production seems unlikely, long term Everett offers matchup-nightmare potential in the middle of the field.

Pro Football Focus compared South Alabama TE Gerald Everett to Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates.

"Everett, like Gates, is just exploding with athletic ability at 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds as he enters the draft, but his technique – both as a blocker and as a route-runner – needs to be polished up, likely due mostly to a lack of experience," writes the PFF analysis team. They refer to Everett as "one of the more raw tight ends in this class," but there is tremendous offensive potential to be tapped here. He could see love as early as Round 2 of the draft next week.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang writes that South Alabama TE Gerald Everett's "talent is undeniable."

"Elusive, fast and capable of running through arm tackles, Everett is a classic move tight end," Rang writes. While he likes him as one of his sleeper tight ends in this class, it might be difficult to even count the 6-foot-3, 239-pounder as a sleeper at this juncture. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline assigns him a lofty second-round grade and NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah argued near the end of January that Everett "belongs in the discussion as the top player at his position."

South Alabama's Gerald Everett could turn into one of the top receiving TEs in the NFL, according to one NFL scout.

"There is question about whether he can handle a full playbook, but I think that is overblown," the scout said. "Cut him loose and let him make a bunch of plays." Everett was on the same practice team with O.J. Howard and Evan Engram at the Senior Bowl. He measured in smaller than Engram, and there will be questions if it is even worth lining him up inline. That might eliminate him from teams who do not incorporate H-backs or move tight ends.

Draft insider Tony Pauline hears South Alabama TE Gerald Everett could move into the later part of the first round with a strong workout at the NFL Combine.

Pauline calls Everett the best downfield playmaker at the position. We would give that title to David Njoku out of Miami, but there's a lot to like in Everett's skillset. NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah recently placed Everett in the first round of his mock draft. As of now we prefer OJ Howard, David Njoku and Evan Engram to Everett, but the tight end class is great.

NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah writes that South Alabama TE Gerald Everett "belongs in the discussion as the top player at his position."

Jeremiah is of the belief that Everett should be spoken of in the same breath as potential first-round/early second-round tight ends O.J. Howard and Jake Butt. Noted the analyst, "He's extremely athletic and he makes some special plays on tape." The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Everett will be on hand for Senior Bowl festivities next week. Should he perform well during the practice week, Jeremiah sees him as "[having] a chance to vault up the board."

An NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that South Alabama senior TE Gerald Everett "can be a mismatch weapon."

The unnamed scout offered a high-praise comp for Everett, noting that the 6-foot-4, 225-pound senior's game and skill set are reminiscent of Jordan Reed's. He could potentially land as a Day 2 selection come this spring's draft. During the 2016 campaign, Everett caught 49 passes for 717 yards and four touchdowns. He will be taking his talents to the Senior Bowl in January, but before he does that, will have one last opportunity on the collegiate stage when the Jaguars square off with Air Force in the Arizona Bowl on December 30.

South Alabama senior TE Gerald Everett accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Everett faded down the stretch, catching just eight passes for 80 yards over his final three games, but his overall numbers are of the strong variety. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder has worked his way to a 49-717-4 receiving line over the course of 12 contests completed. In early October, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline posited that Everett has worked himself into the top-five conversation at his position and could ultimately see an NFL team take the leap for his services on Day 2 of the 2017 draft.

South Alabama senior TE Gerald Everett snagged five passes for 125 yards in a loss to Arkansas State on Saturday.

You could make the case that Everett has been college football's most impressive traditional tight end so far this season. In six games, he's up to 31 catches for 518 yards and three touchdowns.

South Alabama senior TE Gerald Everett has, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, solidified his spot among the top-five best tight end prospects.

In Saturday's upset win over San Diego State, he caught five passes for 103 yards and a touchdown. It wasn't the first time he's lit up a high-profile opponent this fall; against Mississippi State, he recorded eight receptions for 95 yards. "Everett is a tremendous athlete and plays the tight end position like an oversized receiver," Pauline wrote. "I expect him to receive an invitation to the Senior Bowl and Everett could very well hear his name called during the second day of the draft."

South Alabama senior TE Gerald Everett will "get a look from the NFL," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper, and is a "good prospect to watch."

Everett hauled in eight passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's stunning 21-20 upset win over Mississippi State. "He has the size, but can catch a short pass and turn into a long gain," Kiper wrote. "He showed good hands, the ability to create separation, and he can also play all over; he moved around a lot -- slot, wide, inline, you name it." The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder can torch a defense at multiple levels. We've been fans for a few years now.

South Alabama senior TE Gerald Everett caught eight passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in the school's 21-20 upset over Mississippi State.

USA wins! South Alabama was down 17-0 at halftime, but put it on Miss State in the second half. We think Everett is the team's best player, and he flirted with entering the 2016 NFL Draft. Everett is extremely athletic, winning at multiple spots on the field. Those types at tight end are difficult to come by.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks South Alabama junior TE Gerald Everett as the No. 4 draft-eligible tight end.

The UAB transfer caught 17 passes for 292 yards and a score while playing in all 12 games with one start last year for the Blazers. Everett "exudes athleticism," according to Norris. The Jaguars use him as a ball carrier and hybrid receiver; he projects as the latter in the NFL. According to his bio, Everett's favorite movie is "Waist Deep" and his favorite musical artist is Gucci Mane. As Mane would say, Everett one day hopes to have "Money long like Shaq's feet."

South Alabama junior TE Gerald Everett caught four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in the school's 32-25 win over ULL.

Everett is another UAB transfer making an impact at his second stop. He hasn't been on our radar for long, but Everett deserves much more national attention. He is extremely athletic to create separation and also pickup yards after the catch. It is easy to see Everett making the transition to a hybrid receiver in the NFL. He also passed for a touchdown in this contest.
