NFL full seven-round mock draft after initial free agency moves

Who are the Cowboys taking in this mock?

It’s been a big week for the NFL, and some of the biggest names have found new places to call home; Tom Brady is a Buccaneer, Philip Rivers is a Colt, and DeAndre Hopkins is a Cardinal. The Cowboys themselves have been busy, retaining a few of their players and adding Gerald McCoy and HaHa Clinton-Dix to boot.

A lot of these changes have filled holes for teams, which brings with it a big change in teams’ approaches to the 2020 NFL draft. With that in mind, as well as all the big trades that have happened, here is my first full seven round mock draft, which includes trades up through the first three rounds.

Note: the projected trades were largely completed using the trade tool on The Draft Network.

First round

1. Cincinnati Bengals - Joe Burrow, QB - LSU

I don’t think there’s any question about this one. The Bengals have a new franchise quarterback.

2. Washington Redskins - Chase Young, EDGE - Ohio State

The Redskins could trade down or maybe even take someone else, but they’d be foolish to pass up the best player in the draft. Young will give them a terrifying pass rush for years.

3. Detroit Lions - Jeffrey Okudah, CB - Ohio State

The Lions’ pass defense was abysmal last year, and they just traded away their top cornerback. Desmond Trufant could be a sneaky good addition, but he’s not reliable as a top corner anymore. Okudah is, though, and he makes a nice tandem with Trufant to significantly upgrade this secondary.

4. New York Giants - Tristan Wirfs, OT - Iowa

Dave Gettleman loves him some hogmollies, and Tristan Wirfs might just be this year’s best. Protecting Daniel Jones has to be the imperative in New York, and Wirfs can easily secure the right side of the line from day one.

5. Miami Dolphins - Tua Tagovailoa, QB - Alabama

I mean, duh. The Dolphins are infatuated with Tagovailoa and with the star quarterback’s medical records all coming back clean, there’s nothing stopping Miami from taking the guy they just tanked for.

6. Los Angeles Chargers - Mekhi Becton, OT - Louisville

The Chargers need a quarterback, but they also just waived goodbye to their longtime face of the franchise because he had no protection. Signing Bryan Bulaga and trading for Trai Turner shores up the Chargers’ right side, and Becton can become a foundational left tackle in LA for whoever takes snaps under center.

7. Carolina Panthers - Isaiah Simmons, LB - Clemson

Derrick Brown is the common link here, and Carolina might also be interested in trading down for a bevy of picks. But the allure of Simmons, who is a positionless defensive weapon that Matt Rhule can deploy anywhere and everywhere, might be too much to resist. That he fills a hole created by Luke Kuechly’s retirement is just icing on the cake.

8. Arizona Cardinals - Jedrick Wills, OT - Alabama

The Cardinals don’t need a receiver anymore after their thievery of DeAndre Hopkins from Houston, so instead they can focus on protecting Kyler Murray. Wills can play either left or right tackle and would immediately upgrade the line wherever he plays.

9. New York Jets (from JAX) - Andrew Thomas, OT - Georgia

*** Mock trade alert ***
NYJ gets: JAX 1st round (9th), JAX 6th round (189th)
JAX gets: NYJ 1st round (11th), NYJ 3rd round (68th), NYJ 5th round (158th)

With the Cardinals taking Becton, that leaves only Thomas among the big four offensive tackles in the draft. Knowing that Cleveland has a need at the position, the Jets make an aggressive move to get him and secure the blind side for Sam Darnold.

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from CLE) - Derrick Brown, DL - Auburn

*** Mock trade alert ***
CLE gets: TB 1st round (14th), 3rd round (76th), 6th round (194th)
TB gets: CLE 1st round (10th)

With Thomas off the board, the Browns decide not to reach for a player and instead get a few more draft picks from the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay is in win-now mode after signing Tom Brady, so they make the move for Brown, who immediately creates a threatening front with Vita Vea and helps the Bucs create a defense that can supplement Brady and the offense.

11. Jacksonville Jaguars (from NYJ) - Javon Kinlaw, DL - South Carolina

The Jaguars need a big presence on the interior of their defensive line, and Kinlaw fits that mold perfectly. He’s a great disruptor who can be an anchor for the defense as they go through yet another rebuild in Jacksonville.

12. Las Vegas Raiders - CeeDee Lamb, WR - Oklahoma

Jon Gruden will be so tempted to take Justin Herbert here, but he’ll resist. Their top two pass catchers last year were a tight end and a rookie receiver, so Derek Carr - or whoever else - needs more weapons. Lamb is an all-around star who can immediately elevate the offense.

13. San Francisco 49ers (from IND) - Jerry Jeudy, WR - Alabama

The 49ers’ trade of DeForest Buckner was a bit of a surprise, but it gives Kyle Shanahan a chance to fortify his offense going forward. Emmanuel Sanders gave the passing game a jolt when he was acquired last season, and Jeudy represents a young, long term version of that. He and Garoppolo can become a dangerous threat to opposing defenses.

14. New England Patriots (from CLE) - Justin Herbert, QB - Oregon

*** Mock trade alert ***
NE gets: CLE 1st round (14th), 2021 5th round
CLE gets: NE 1st round (23rd), 3rd round (87th), 4th round (125th), 7th round (230th)

The Patriots have a need at QB and a whole bunch of draft picks. So when Herbert slides this far, Bill Belichick siphons off some draft capital to get a great deal on the Oregon star. Herbert’s athleticism and physical tools will make him a perfect project for Josh McDaniels, and he can grow into their franchise quarterback with ease.

15. Denver Broncos - Henry Ruggs III, WR - Alabama

The Broncos believe they have their franchise quarterback in Drew Lock, and now they want to get him a complementary weapon to Courtland Sutton. Ruggs has speed for days, which contrasts nicely with Sutton’s possession style of play to give Lock two great options.

16. Atlanta Falcons - K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE - LSU

The Falcons landed Dante Fowler Jr. in free agency, but they still need edge rushers. Chaisson can be a dynamic rusher that head coach Dan Quinn can use in a variety of ways, and his skill in run defense is a cherry on top.

17. Dallas Cowboys - CJ Henderson, CB - Florida

The Cowboys have mitigated some of the loss of Byron Jones by re-signing Anthony Brown and bringing in Maurice Canady, but they still lack a true number one corner. Henderson fits that bill in his sleep, as detailed in this scouting report on the Gator. He’s excellent in both man and zone coverages and is a ballhawk, something this new coaching staff craves. He’ll immediately become the team’s top pass defender.

18. Miami Dolphins (from PIT) - Xavier McKinney, S - Alabama

The Dolphins’ signing of Byron Jones to go along with Xavien Howard gives them an exceptional cornerback tandem, but head coach Brian Flores needs more improvements in his secondary. McKinney is the best safety in the draft and he has the position flexibility to be moved around like the Dolphins wanted to do with Minkah Fitzpatrick.

19. Las Vegas Raiders (from CHI) - Kristian Fulton, CB - LSU

The Raiders got a new top target for their offense, and now they need to focus on shutting down opposing teams’ top targets. Fulton doesn’t do much in the way of takeaways, but he’s arguably a better cover corner than Henderson; he can give this defense what they’ve been missing in their secondary and help the Raiders take the next step.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR) - Grant Delpit, S - LSU

The Jaguars would’ve loved to get Fulton after trading away both Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye, but they settle instead for a ballhawking safety in Delpit. He has concerns about his tackling skills, but with the scheme that Jacksonville runs he’ll be deployed as a single high safety more often than not, capitalizing on his excellent traits in coverage.

21. Philadelphia Eagles - Jalen Reagor, WR - TCU

The Eagles came into the draft with two big needs: receiver and cornerback. They solved one (partially) by trading for Darius Slay, and with their first pick in the draft they address the other. Reagor is far and away the most complete receiver on the board at this point, and Philadelphia can feature him heavily in their offense right away.

22. Minnesota Vikings (from BUF) - Jeff Gladney, CB - TCU

The Vikings’ top two corners from 2019 - Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes - are now gone. Mike Hughes is expected to get a shot at being the top dog, but Mike Zimmer will want another talented defender opposite him. He should salivate over Gladney, who thrives in man coverage and has a nose for the ball. This is a match made in heaven.

23. Cleveland Browns (from NE) - Josh Jones, OT - Houston

After trading back twice, the Browns finally get to draft someone, and it’s at the position they initially wanted to draft at 10. Signing Jack Conklin in free agency fixes the Browns’ right tackle issues, and Jones can slide into their left tackle spot to give Baker Mayfield some time to actually read the defense.

24. New Orleans Saints - Patrick Queen, LB - LSU

Maybe there’s some temptation to take Jordan Love and groom him to eventually replace Drew Brees, but the Saints have bigger needs. Linebacker is one of them, as AJ Klein left in free agency. The Saints could do a lot worse than Queen, an all around talent who can shore things up between a talented defensive line and secondary.

25. Minnesota Vikings - Laviska Shenault Jr., WR - Colorado

Stefon Diggs is gone, which means the Vikings need to find a new receiver to pair with Adam Thielen. Shenault comes into the draft in much the same way Diggs did: noted for his natural talent and skill, but raising questions about low production in college. That shouldn’t be a problem in Minnesota, though, as Thielen will draw the defense’s attention and free up the rookie.

26. Miami Dolphins (from HOU) - Lloyd Cushenberry III, OG - LSU

At this point, Miami has their franchise quarterback with Tagovailoa and some decent weapons to throw to, but protection remains the key. They got solid performances from several linemen last year, but center is the biggest hole right now. Cushenberry might be the best center in this draft, and he can help anchor the line for Tagovailoa as the Dolphins try to make a huge jump in 2020.

27. Seattle Seahawks - Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE - Penn State

Seattle brought back Bruce Irvin, sure, but he’s neither a short-term or long-term solution to the void Jadeveon Clowney left. Gross-Matos offers a very high ceiling as a pass rusher and is a near-perfect fit in the Seahawks’ defensive scheme. Even if Irvin gets more reps, Gross-Matos is the right investment for this team.

28. Baltimore Ravens - Kenneth Murray, LB - Oklahoma

As far as team-player fits go, there are few better than Murray to the Ravens. He’s capable of filling multiple roles on a defense, and that versatility is exactly what Baltimore loves to see from interior linebackers. He’ll quickly become a field general for this young defense.

29. Tennessee Titans - Neville Gallimore, DL - Oklahoma

The Titans’ trade of Jurrell Casey opens up a need on the defensive line next to Jeffery Simmons. Gallimore is an ideal replacement option for Casey, as penetration is the name of the game for him. He and Simmons can wreak havoc together on opposing offenses for years to come.

30. Green Bay Packers - Tee Higgins, WR - Clemson

Aaron Rodgers targeted his running back and tight end more than any receiver not named Davante Adams last year, which means Green Bay should get their aging quarterback some help. Higgins represents a massive deep threat that would pair well with Adams’ versatility and could reignite what was a middling offense far too much in 2019.

31. Los Angeles Chargers (from SF) - Jordan Love, QB - Utah State

*** Mock trade alert ***
SF gets: LAC 2nd round (37th), 4th round (112th)
LAC gets: SF 1st round (31st)

The 49ers don’t have a whole lot of picks and would be wise to try and acquire more draft capital via trading down. And with Love still on the board, it’s perfect incentive for the Chargers to trade up and get their next quarterback. Love can take time to develop and mature behind Tyrod Taylor, but his raw potential makes him an ideal candidate for future greatness.

32. Atlanta Falcons (from KC) - D’Andre Swift, RB - Georgia

*** Mock trade alert ***
ATL gets: KC 1st (32)
KC gets: ATL 2nd (47), 4th (143), 7th (228)

The Chiefs have few needs, as is common for Super Bowl winning teams, and the few needs they do have can’t be appropriately addressed at 32. A trade down makes sense, and the Falcons take advantage to get arguably the draft’s top running back to pair with the talented but declining Todd Gurley.

Second round

33. Cincinnati Bengals - Justin Jefferson, WR - LSU

34. Indianapolis Colts (from WAS) - Denzel Mims, WR - Baylor

35. Detroit Lions - Raekwon Davis, DL - Alabama

36. New York Giants - AJ Espenesa, EDGE - Iowa

37. San Francisco 49ers (from LAC) - Noah Igbinoghene, CB - Auburn

38. Carolina Panthers - Trevon Diggs, CB - Alabama

39. Miami Dolphins - Lucas Niang, OT - TCU

40. Houston Texans (from AZ) - Michael Pittman Jr., WR - USC

41. Cleveland Browns - Antoine Winfield Jr., S - Minnesota

42. Jacksonville Jaguars - Cameron Dantzler, CB - Mississippi State

43. Chicago Bears (from LV) - Cesar Ruiz, OG - Michigan

44. Miami Dolphins (from IND) - JK Dobbins, RB - Ohio State

*** Mock trade alert ***
IND gets: Josh Rosen, MIA 5th round (153rd)
MIA gets: IND 2nd round (44th), 6th round (197th)

After missing out on Jordan Love, the Colts deal a second and sixth rounder to the Dolphins for Josh Rosen, who can offer a cheap developmental player behind Philip Rivers. Miami, on the other hand, gets an incredibly talented running back in Dobbins who should pair nicely with the recently signed Jordan Howard.

45. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Austin Jackson, OT - USC

46. Denver Broncos - Ross Blacklock, DL - TCU

47. Kansas City Chiefs (from ATL) - AJ Terrell, CB - Clemson

48. New York Jets - Terrell Lewis, EDGE - Alabama

49. Pittsburgh Steelers - Jonathan Taylor, RB - Wisconsin

50. Chicago Bears - Bryce Hall, CB - Virginia

51. Dallas Cowboys - Zack Baun, EDGE - Wisconsin

This would be an absolute steal for the Cowboys. Baun is an edge rushing chess piece that can be used in a variety of different ways. He’ll undoubtedly draw comparisons to TJ Watt, and while he’s not as athletic or skilled, he’s more versatile. He has late-first round talent but his status as a tweener could cause him to fall, at which point the Cowboys would be ecstatic to insert him into their multiple 4-3 defense.

52. Los Angeles Rams - Ezra Cleveland, OT - Boise State

53. Philadelphia Eagles - Damon Arnette, CB - Ohio State

54. Buffalo Bills - Jaylon Johnson, CB - Utah

55. Baltimore Ravens (from NE) - KJ Hamler, WR - Penn State

56. Miami Dolphins (from NO) - Brandon Aiyuk, WR - Arizona State

57. Houston Texans - Curtis Weaver, EDGE - Boise State

58. Minnesota Vikings - Justin Madubuike, DL - Texas A&M

59. Seattle Seahawks - Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR - Michigan

60. Baltimore Ravens - Jonah Jackson, OG - Ohio State

61. Tennessee Titans - Julian Okwara, EDGE - Notre Dame

62. Green Bay Packers - Cole Kmet, TE - Notre Dame

63. Kansas City Chiefs (from SF) - Matt Hennessy, OG - Temple

64. Seattle Seahawks (from KC) - Ashtyn Davis, S - Cal

Third round

65. Cincinnati Bengals - Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB - LSU

66. Washington Redskins - Prince Tega-Wanogho, OT - Auburn

67. Detroit Lions - Joshua Uche, EDGE - Michigan

68. Denver Broncos (from JAX) - Isaiah Wilson, OT - Georgia

*** Mock trade alert ***
DEN gets: JAX 3rd round (68th), 5th round (165th)
JAX gets: 3rd round (77th), 3rd round (95th), 7th round (254th)

The Broncos got their young quarterback a receiving threat in the first round, and now they trade up to get him some added protection. Wilson needs some time to develop but he can grow into a reliable right tackle behind incumbent starter Ja’Wuan James, who only has two years left on his contract after the 2020 season.

69. Carolina Panthers - Marlon Davidson, DL - Auburn

70. Miami Dolphins - Brycen Hopkins, TE - Purdue

71. Los Angeles Chargers - Robert Hunt, OG - Louisiana

72. Arizona Cardinals - Malik Harrison, LB - Ohio State

73. Jacksonville Jaguars - Jonathan Greenard, EDGE - Florida

74. Cleveland Browns - Willie Gay Jr., LB - Mississippi State

75. Indianapolis Colts - Hunter Bryant, TE - Washington

76. Cleveland Browns (from TB) - Netane Muti, OG - Fresno State

77. Jacksonville Jaguars - Bryan Edwards, WR - South Carolina

78. Atlanta Falcons - Darnay Holmes, CB - UCLA

79. New York Jets - Troy Pride Jr., CB - Notre Dame

80. Las Vegas Raiders - Larell Murchison, DL - NC State

81. Las Vegas Raiders (from CHI) - Jeremy Chinn, S - Southern Illinois

82. Dallas Cowboys - Kyle Dugger, S - Lenoir-Rhyne

The Cowboys have shied away from small school prospects under Will McClay, but if they’re truly committed to having a more multiple defense they’ll set that bias aside for Dugger. Like Baun, he’s a talented tweener and his unheard-of alma mater could hurt his draft stock, but Dugger can be deployed all over the defense at every level. Mike Nolan would salivate over his versatility and the ways he could pair Dugger with Xavier Woods and newly-signed HaHa Clinton-Dix.

83. Denver Broncos (from PIT) - Jordyn Brooks, LB - Texas Tech

84. Los Angeles Rams - Cam Akers, RB - Florida State

85. Detroit Lions (from PHI) - Terrell Burgess, S - Utah

86. Buffalo Bills - Darrell Taylor, EDGE - Tennessee

87. Cleveland Browns (from NE) - Davon Hamilton, DL - Ohio State

88. New Orleans Saints - Adam Trautman, TE - Dayton

89. Minnesota Vikings - Matthew Peart, OT - UConn

90. Houston Texans - Rashard Lawrence, DL - LSU

91. Las Vegas Raiders (from SEA) - Jalen Hurts, QB - Oklahoma

92. Baltimore Ravens - Eno Benjamin, RB - Arizona State

93. Tennessee Titans - Zack Moss, RB - Utah

94. Green Bay Packers - Troy Dye, LB - Oregon

95. Jacksonville Jaguars (from DEN) - Nick Harris, OG - Washington

96. Kansas City Chiefs - Alohi Gilman, S - Notre Dame

97. Cleveland Browns (from HOU) - Amik Robertson, CB - Louisiana Tech

98. New England Patriots - Chase Claypool, WR/TE - Notre Dame

99. New York Giants - K’Von Wallace, S - Clemson

100. New England Patriots - Jabari Zuniga, EDGE - Florida

101. Seattle Seahawks - Ben Bartch, OT - St. John

102. Pittsburgh Steelers - Thaddeus Moss, TE - LSU

103. Philadelphia Eagles - Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB - Appalachian State

104. Los Angeles Rams - Khalid Kareem, EDGE - Notre Dame

105. Minnesota Vikings - Tyler Biadasz, OG - Wisconsin

106. Baltimore Ravens - Bradlee Anae, EDGE - Utah

Fourth round

107. Cincinnati Bengals - Alex Highsmith, EDGE - Charlotte

108. Washington Redskins - Saahdiq Charles, OT - LSU

109. Detroit Lions - Jacob Eason, QB - Washington

110. New York Giants - Van Jefferson, WR - Florida

111. Houston Texans (from MIA) - Logan Stenberg, OG - Kentucky

112. San Francisco 49ers (from LAC) - Antonio Gibson, RB - Memphis

113. Carolina Panthers - KJ Hill, WR - Ohio State

114. Arizona Cardinals - Jason Stowbridge, DL - North Carolina

115. Cleveland Browns - Kenny Willekes, EDGE - Michigan State

116. Jacksonville Jaguars - Evan Weaver, LB - Cal

117. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jake Fromm, QB - Georgia

118. Denver Broncos - Michael Ojemudia, CB - Iowa

119. Atlanta Falcons - McTelvin Agim, DL - Arkansas

120. New York Jets - Devin Duvernay, WR - Texas

121. Las Vegas Raiders - Joe Bachie Jr., LB - Michigan State

122. Indianapolis Colts - Damien Lewis, OG - LSU

123. Dallas Cowboys - Leki Fotu, DL - Utah

Gerald McCoy is likely going to play a lot of snaps for Dallas in 2020, but he’s mostly a 3 technique kind of tackle. He’ll need a big bodied nose tackle to play next to, and that’s where Fotu can come in. At over 330 pounds, Fotu is a handful to deal with and he’s still fairly explosive for his size. Pairing him with someone of McCoy’s talents would suddenly make the Cowboys interior defensive line very formidable.

124. Pittsburgh Steelers - Jordan Elliott, DL - Missouri

125. Cleveland Browns (from NE) - Quartney Davis, WR - Texas A&M

126. Los Angeles Rams - Brandon Jones, S - Texas

127. Philadelphia Eagles - Anthony McFarland, RB - Maryland

128. Buffalo Bills - AJ Dillon, RB - Boston College

129. Baltimore Ravens (from NE) - Trajan Bandy, CB - Miami

130. New Orleans Saints - Collin Johnson, WR - Texas

131. Arizona Cardinals - Shane Lemieux, OG - Oregon

132. Minnesota Vikings - Julian Blackmon, S - Utah

133. Seattle Seahawks - Ben Bredeson, OG - Michigan

134. Baltimore Ravens - Richie Grant, S - UCF

135. Pittsburgh Steelers (from TEN) - Solomon Kindley, OG - Georgia

136. Green Bay Packers - Bravvion Roy, DL - Baylor

137. Jacksonville Jaguars (from SF) - Khalil Davis, DL - Nebraska

138. Kansas City Chiefs - Albert Okwuegbunam, TE - Missouri

139. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Gabriel Davis, WR - UCF

140. Jacksonville Jaguars - Nick Coe, EDGE - Auburn

141. Miami Dolphins - Alton Robinson, EDGE - Syracuse

142. Washington Redskins - Cheyenne O’Grady, TE - Arkansas

143. Kansas City Chiefs (from ATL) - Isaiah Hodgins, WR - Oregon State

144. Seattle Seahawks - Essang Bassey, CB - Wake Forest

145. Philadelphia Eagles - Jack Driscoll, OT - Auburn

146. Philadelphia Eagles - David Woodward, LB - Utah State

Fifth round

147. Cincinnati Bengals - John Simpson, OG - Clemson

148. Washington Redskins - Michael Onwenu, OG - Michigan

149. Detroit Lions - Jordan Fuller, S - Ohio State

150. New York Giants - Markus Bailey, LB - Purdue

151. Los Angeles Chargers - Harrison Hand, CB - Temple

152. Carolina Panthers - Jared Pinkney, TE - Vanderbilt

153. Indianapolis Colts - Tyler Clark, DL - Georgia

154. Miami Dolphins (from JAX) - Myles Bryant, CB - Washington

155. Buffalo Bills (from CLE) - Josiah Deguara, TE - Cincinnati

156. San Francisco 49ers (from DEN) - Hakeem Adeniji, OT - Kansas

157. Baltimore Ravens (from ATL) - Javelin Guidry, S - Utah

158. Jacksonville Jaguars (from NYJ) - Lamical Perine, RB - Florida

159. Las Vegas Raiders - Anfernee Jennings, EDGE - Alabama

160. Indianapolis Colts - Shaquille Quarterman, LB - Miami

161. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Darrynton Evans, RB - Appalachian State

162. Seattle Seahawks - Devin Asiasi, TE - UCLA

163. Chicago Bears - JR Reed, S - Georgia

164. Dallas Cowboys - Tyler Johnson, WR - Minnesota

Whether or not the Cowboys sign Emmanuel Sanders, they’ll need more of a long term plan at the slot receiver position. Johnson would be a great option for that role with a year of growth. He’s an efficient route runner who can create separation with a high regularity and has reliable hands; he’s also a dynamic threat after the catch. With time to adjust to the NFL, Johnson could become a highly effective slot receiver.

165. Denver Broncos (from LAR) - Tanner Muse, S - Clemson

166. Detroit Lions (from PHI) - Yasir Durant, OG - Missouri State

167. Minnesota Vikings - Jacob Phillips, LB - LSU

168. Philadelphia Eagles (from NE) - Anthony Gordon, QB - Washington

169. New Orleans Saints - Justin Herron, OT - Wake Forest

170. Jacksonville Jaguars (from MIN) - Harrison Bryant, TE - Florida Atlantic

171. Houston Texans - Terence Steele, OT - Texas Tech

172. Detroit Lions (from SEA) - Quintez Cephus, WR - Wisconsin

173. Miami Dolphins (from BAL) - Justin Strnad, LB - Wake Forest

174. Tennessee Titans - Colby Parkinson, TE - Stanford

175. Green Bay Packers - Dane Jackson, CB - Pitt

176. San Francisco 49ers - Geno Stone, S - Iowa

177. Kansas City Chiefs - Ke’Shawn Vaughn, RB - Vanderbilt

178. Denver Broncos - Patrick Taylor Jr., RB - Memphis

179. Dallas Cowboys - Lamar Jackson, CB - Nebraska

No, not that Lamar Jackson. This one is a long, tall, physical corner who’s got a penchant for takeaways - he logged five interceptions in two years at Nebraska. Jackson still needs to work on his feet and hip fluidity, but with a late fifth round selection he can be relied on as insurance if/when the Cowboys lose one or both of Chidobe Awuzie or Jourdan Lewis after the season.

Sixth round

180. Cincinnati Bengals - Francis Bernard, LB - Utah

181. Denver Broncos (from WAS) - Jonathan Garvin, EDGE - Miami

182. Detroit Lions - Jake Hanson, OG - Oregon

183. New York Giants - Darryl Williams, OG - Mississippi State

184. Carolina Panthers - Zach Shackelford, OG - Texas

185. Miami Dolphins - Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR - Liberty

186. Los Angeles Chargers - Jauan Jennings, WR - Tennessee

187. Cleveland Browns (from AZ) - Antoine Brooks Jr., S - Maryland

188. Buffalo Bills (from CLE) - Tyrie Cleveland, WR - Florida

189. New York Jets (from JAX) - Sewo Olonilua, RB - TCU

190. Philadelphia Eagles (from ATL) - DJ Wonnum, EDGE - South Carolina

191. New York Jets - Mohamed Berry, LB - Nebraska

198. Pittsburgh Steelers - Scott Frantz, OT - Kansas State

199. Los Angeles Rams - Lynn Bowden, WR - Kentucky

200. Chicago Bears (from PHI) - Darius Anderson, RB - TCU

201. Minnesota Vikings - James Morgan, QB - Florida International

202. Arizona Cardinals (from NE) - Michael Warren II, RB - Cincinnati

203. New Orleans Saints - Jon Runyan, OT - Michigan

204. New England Patriots (HOU) - Kamal Martin, LB - Minnesota

205. Minnesota Vikings - Trevis Gipson, EDGE - Tulsa

206. Jacksonville Jaguars (from SEA) - Calvin Throckmorton, OT - Oregon

207. Buffalo Bills (from BAL) - Benito Jones, DL - Ole Miss

208. Green Bay Packers (from TEN) - James Lynch, DL - Baylor

209. Green Bay Packers - Josiah Scott, CB - Michigan State

210. San Francisco 49ers - Reggie Robinson II, CB - Tulsa

211. New York Jets (from KC) - Dalton Keene, TE - Virginia Tech

212. New England Patriots - Dezmon Patton, WR - Washington State

213. New England Patriots - Raequan Williams, DL - Michigan State

214. Seattle Seahawks - Robert Landers, DL - Ohio State

Seventh round

215. Cincinnati Bengals - AJ Green, CB - Oklahoma State

216. Washington Redskins - Kalija Lipscomb, WR - Vanderbilt

217. San Francisco 49ers (from DET) - Trevon Hill, EDGE - Miami

218. New York Giants - Nate Stanley, QB - Iowa

219. Minnesota Vikings (from MIA) - Kamren Curl, CB - Arkansas

220. Los Angeles Chargers - Mykal Walker, LB - Fresno State

221. Carolina Panthers - Mike Panasiuk, DL - Michigan State

222. Arizona Cardinals - Mike Danna, EDGE - Michigan

223. Jacksonville Jaguars - Steven Montez, QB - Colorado

224. Tennessee Titans (from CLE) - Tremayne Archum, OT - Clemson

225. Baltimore Ravens (from NYJ) - Alex Taylor, OT - South Carolina State

226. Chicago Bears (from LV) - Jeff Thomas, WR - Miami

227. Miami Dolphins (from IND) - Binjimen Victor, WR - Ohio State

228. Kansas City Chiefs (from ATL) - Davion Taylor, LB - Colorado

229. Washington Redskins (from DEN) - Shyheim Carter, S - Alabama

230. Cleveland Browns (from NE) - Lavert Hill, CB - Michigan

231. Dallas Cowboys - Sean McKeon, TE - Michigan

Blake Jarwin is going to be the starting tight end, and Dalton Schultz will likely be the blocking tight end. McKeon can be that third tight end, though, and serve a nice depth role. He did a little bit of everything at Michigan, which helps him provide value as a backup to either Schultz or Jarwin. And with a seventh round pick, you’re mostly looking for guys who can provide solid depth, which McKeon does.

232. Pittsburgh Steelers - Carter Coughlin, EDGE - Minnesota

233. Chicago Bears - TJ Brunson, LB - South Carolina

234. Los Angeles Rams - Levonta Taylor, CB - Florida State

235. New England Patriots (from PHI) - Mitchell Wilcox, TE - South Florida

236. Green Bay Packers (from BUF) - Charlie Heck, OT - North Carolina

237. Tennessee Titans (from NE) - Gage Cervenka, OG - Clemson

238. New York Giants (from NO) - Jacob Breeland, TE - Oregon

239. Buffalo Bills (from MIN) - David Reese II, LB - Florida

240. Houston Texans - Grayland Arnold, CB - Baylor

241. New England Patriots (from SEA) - Jared Hilbers, OG - Washington

242. Green Bay Packers (from BAL) - David Dowell, S - Michigan State

243. Tennessee Titans - Tyler Huntley, QB - Utah
