With the NFL Draft beginning this Thursday night, Nat L. Faybian’s Senior Writer Douglas Love compiles a final four-round mock draft.
103. Arizona Cardinals: Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio State
McLaurin used the post-season to move up draft board with steady and impressive performances. His 4.35 is certainly a bonus.
104. San Francisco 49ers: Ty Summers, ILB, TCU
Summers wrapped up his college career with the second-most tackles (318) in the Patterson era. He had a frustrating senior season with an injury, but finished the season with 46 tackles, including 5 1/2 for loss and four sacks.
105. New York Jets: Ryan Pope, OT, San Diego State
Like his teammate Roemer, Pope is a big mauler type that can help clear lanes inthe run game.
106. Oakland Raiders: Ryan Finley, QB, NC State
True, Gruden prefers veterans, however, for a fourth round pick – Finley does possess the intelligence Gruden appreciates in a QB.
107. Tampa Buccaneers: Dru Samia, OG, Oklahoma
Samia is a passionate, fiery, player. He’ll push Alex Cappa for playing time.
108. New York Giants: Jimmy Moreland, DB, James Madison
Small school prospects who held his own in the East-West Shrine game.
109. Jacksonville Jaguars: Malik Carney, OLB, North Carolina
Carney could be a blitzing linebacker, but can also play with his hand in the dirt; twenty-four TFL and 11.5 sacks in the last two years.
110. Cincinnati Bengals: Yosh Nijman, OT, Virginia Tech
Cincinnati adds depth, as Nijman has experience playing left and right tackle.
111. Detroit Lions: Charles Omenihu, DE, Texas
Omenihu had a good Senior Bowl week. He’s big and strong end that will help stop the run.
112. Buffalo Bills: Jazz Ferguson, WR, Northwestern State
Ferguson gives Allen a big target (6′ 5″/227) with 4.4 speed.
113. Baltimore Ravens (via Den): Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State
Sanders has worked diligently over the past year to become stronger, quicker, faster, and just overall better. His workout at the NFL Scouting Combine, prove he can do what he sets his mind to accomplish. North-South runner that spring it from between the tackles. Has experience as a return man. Has good upside. Needs to be a better blocker.
114. Green Bay Packers: Will Harris, S, Boston College
Hard hitting safety from Boston College, Harris was a four-year starter. Harris can blitz, cover receivers, and put the screws to a running back. Also adds special teams experience.
115. Carolina Panthers: Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
Carolina picks up a athletic back-up to Newton. Thorson has the size and arm strength every scout is looking for. He won 27 games over his career and took Northwestern to the Big-10 Championship game last year. Had shoulder surgery prior to the 2018 season.
116. Miami Dolphins: Jordan Brown, CB, South Dakota State
Performed well at the Combine, Senior Bowl and on his Pro Day.
117. Atlanta Falcons: Nate Davis, OG, Charlotte
Davis has started close to 40 games at tackle for Charlotte, but will most likely move inside at the next level. His footwork, technique and mobility are his strengths.
118. Green Bay Packers (via Was): David Long, Jr., LB, West Virgina
Long is a big play waiting to happen. He loves physical contact and tries to separate ball carriers from the ball. Generally, trusts what he sees, but can be overly aggressive at times.
119. Cleveland Browns: Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan
In three-years, Bunting had 104 tackles with 9 ints and 4 fourced fumbles.
120. Minnesota Vikings: Terrill Hanks, OLB, New Mexico State
Hanks is a guy the Vikings have had an eye on. He was a standout at the Senior bowl. His speed really stood out.
121. Tennessee Titans: Blake Cashman, OLB, Minnesota
Cashman turned heads by declaring early for the draft. Known for his football IQ more than his athleticism, his Combine number were very solid. Was a tone-setter for the Gopher’s defense. Has the fame to get bigger.
122. Pittsburgh Steelers: David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State
Montgomery breaks a lot of tackles and makes yards after contact.
123. Baltimore Ravens: Phil Haynes, OG, Wake Forest
Haynes is one of the strong-powerful inside guys that will help your running game. Four year starter that has only gotten bigger and stronger each year. Team captain. Athletic and durable mauler.
124. Seattle Seahawks: Hjalte Froholdt, OG, Arkansas
From Svendborg, Denmark, Froholdt is still learning the nuances of the game. Plays penalty free football. Has played a little center, but mostly right guard. Has good combination of strength and short area quickness.
125. Denver Broncos (via Hou): Kingley Keke, DT, Texas A&M
Keke is one of those players who stood out over Senior Bowl week. He gets his power from his lower body and likes to pin his ears back and go forward. He’s another guy who can play up and down the line. Good coaching will add more tools to his belt as he goes along.
126. Chicago Bears: Kris Boyd, CB, Texas
Experienced corner with over 50 games played. Plays the physical style Chicago loves.
127. Philadelphia Eagles: Austin Bryant, DE, Clemson
Has good burst off the line. Uses his long arms to punch and has a variety of hand techniques. Shows good bend and understands leverage. Played with a talented group and didn’t need to be the star – but understood his role in the scheme.
128. Dallas Cowboys: Kano Dillon, TE, Oregon
Dillon arrived in Oregon as a grad-transfer from South Flordia. He is certainly one of the more physically intriguing tight end prospects in the 2019 draft class. If a team decides to invest in his measurables, he could become a better pro than college player.
129. Indianapolis Colts: Sheldrick Redwine, S, Miami
Redwine had a good Senior Bowl showing and a good Combine too. He’s a well-built safety will good field awareness. Can cover well enough to stay on the field and fill the slot. His versatility will be an asset.
130. Los Angeles Chargers: Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo
Under appreciated wide out from Toledo, Johnson gets out of his breaks smoothly and catches the ball fluidly. He can double as a return specialist.
131. Buffalo Bills (via KC): Sheriff Miller, DE, Penn State
Miller is quick off the snap. He’s had a lot of looks in the off-season.
132. New York Giants (via NO): Olisaemaka “Oli” Udoh, OT, Elon
Udoh looked good at the East-West Shrine game week, holding his own against FBS competition. Very long and rangy, looks like a right tackle.
133. Los Angeles Rams: Marvel Tell, S, USC
Tell hasn’t received the press some of the other safeties have, but he’s got good quickness. Tall and lanky, yet muscular. Can go sideline-to-sideline and would make a good high (or free) safety at the next level.
134. New England Patriots: Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
Very good in pass protection which will help him get on the field. Can catch out of the backfield. Anderson doesn’t waste any motion, he goes straight to the hole. Has vision to see crease, gets skinny, and slide out the other side. Good feet in space.Tends to fall forward.
**Compensatory selections begin**
135. Indianapolis Colts: Ryan Connelly, ILB, Wisconsin
Connelly has been recovering from a core muscle injury, but still showed well at the NFL Combine. He did everything but the bench press. Connelly is assignment sound. He is athletic enough to stay on the field for all three downs. He plays disciplined football. Lunch bucket kind of player.
136. Dallas Cowboys: Isaiah Johnson, CB, Houston
There’s always one or two players who slip through the cracks. Johnson is tall, lanky, corner that had a good week at the Senior Bowl. He’s a former wide receiver turned CB. He is at his best when mirroring his man one-on-one.
137. Atlanta Falcons: Wes Hills, RB, Slippery Rock
Fleet-footed Wes Hills of Slippery Rock showcased his patience, physicality, and vision at the NFLPA game.
138. Philadelphia Eagles: Karan Higdon, RB, Michigan
For his career, Higdon totaled 2,616 yards and 27 touchdowns.
