The Final 4-Round Mock Draft: Round 4

With the NFL Draft beginning this Thursday night, Nat L. Faybian’s Senior Writer Douglas Love compiles a final four-round mock draft.

Round 4

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 has sideline-to-sideline range and is effective playing in space.

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

North Carolina Tar Heels defensive end Malik Carney (53) is best coming off the edge.

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

Boston College’s Will Harris has played in 47 games during his career.
Photo: Jeremy Brevard|USA TODAY Sports

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

Central Michigan’s Sean Bunting has loose hips and quick feet.

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

Boyd has 35 passes defended in his career at Texas.
Photo: burnt orange nation

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 was a first team FCS All-American.
Photo: The Athletic

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.

Quarterbacks: Final Position Rankings

2019 NFL Draft:  Top Rated QBs

Haskins is expected to be the first quarterback off the board.
Photo: Eleven Warriors

1. Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State, 6-3/231

He set a Big-10 record by passing for more yards than Drew Brees. He also threw for 50 touchdowns. He looks very comfortable in the pocket and seems to have a natural feel for the game. Quick release and really drives the ball down field. Reads the field well and is accurate. Mechanics are clean, but sometimes drops his arm creating errant throws. Haskins is still learning the game. With good coaching he has a high ceiling.

2. Drew Lock, Missouri, 6-4/228

There are something you just can’t coach, and one of them is arm-strength. Lock has the best arm in the class. Lock’s throwing motion resemble a Major League pitcher. He really torques that elbow and has a lot of range in his shoulder. Has four-years of playing experience against top level competition. Could start right away at the next level.

3. Kyler Murray, Oklahoma, 5-10/205

Murray is the wild-card in the draft. In 2018, he won the Heisman and Davey O’Brien Awards – widely considered the best player in college football. Opted for the NFL over the MLB. When you watch his throwing mechanics, you can see that baseball background in his throwing motion – look like a third baseman throwing it to first. Has a very quick release and nice touch on the ball – especially, the deep ball. Murray expects to be a day one starter, after all, he didn’t skip a professional baseball career to ride the pine.

4. Daniel Jones, Duke, 6-5/221

A protégé of coach David Cutcliffe, Jones knows his X’s and O’s. His experience playing in a pro-style offense has helped him prepare for the next level. Has good arm strength, but not top-notch. Releases ball at it’s high point. Could start right away at the next level, but might benefit by not being asked to do too much in his first season.

5. Ryan Finley, North Carolina State, 6-4/213

Finley is a cerebral quarterback, who throws the ball with a soft touch. He makes smart decisions and plays mistake free football. Doesn’t take unnecessary sacks or throw into tight windows when he can check the ball down.

6. Tyree Jackson, Buffalo, 6-7/240

This guy has the physical traits some team will fall in love with. At 6′ 7″, he ran a 4.59 forty. He gets tons of rotations on the ball as it zips out of his hand. Not a runner, but if pushed out of the pocket, he has a quick reset allowing him to get the ball off quickly. He keeps his eyes downfield and is really accurate in the intermediate range. Has a lot of potential, but will need good coaching to fix some mechanical issues which cause him to over/under throw too many passes.

7. Will Grier, West Virginia, 6-2/217

Played in a wide open gun-slinger style of offense that showcased the best of his skills. Even though the Pro game is changing, you still need to play from under center. He bring enthusiasm to the field and is a natural leader. If a team seeks intangibles, this guy has them.

8. Jarrett Stidham, Auburn, 6-2/218

Stidham can make all of the throw, but doesn’t make them consistently. He threw a lot of dink-and-dunk passes at Auburn. Didn’t play under center. So there’s going to be a curve for him too.

9. Clayton Thorson, Northwestern, 6-4/222

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.

10. Brett Rypien, Boise State, 6-2/210

Rypien is getting plenty of looks leading up to the draft. A four-year starter known for his football IQ and preparation. Doesn’t have a rocket arm, but is accurate and doesn’t make costly mistakes.

OTHER PLAYERS TO KEEP AN EYE ON:

  1. Devlin Hodges, Samford, 6-1/205
  2. Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State, 6-5/226
  3. Jordan Ta’amu, Mississippi, 6-3/221
  4. Gardner Minshew, Washington State, 6-1/225
  5. Easton Stick, North Dakota State, 6-1/224
  6. Trace McSorley, Penn State, 6-0/202
  7. Kyle Shurmer, Vanderbilt, 6-4/230
  8. Jake Browning, Washington, 6-2/211
  9. Justice Hansen, Arkansas State, 6-4/2018
  10. Wilton Speight, UCLA, 6-6/240
  11. Tony Cornelius, Oklahoma State, 6-6/232
  12. Taryn Christion So. Dakota State 6-2/220
  13. Bart Williams, Grand Valley State, 6-6/225
  14. John Lovett, Princeton, 6-3/230
  15. Jake Dolegala, Central Connecticut State, 6-6/235

17 Invited:

  • Jake Browning, Washington
  • Ryan Finley, NC State
  • Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State
  • Will Grier, West Virginia
  • Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State
  • Tyree Jackson, Buffalo
  • Daniel Jones, Duke
  • Drew Lock, Missouri
  • Trace McSorley, Penn State
  • Gardner Minshew II, Washington State
  • Kyler Murray, Oklahoma
  • Brett Rypien, Boise State
  • Kyle Shurmer, Vanderbilt
  • Easton Stick, No. Dakota State
  • Jarrett Stidham, Auburn
  • Jordan Ta’amu, Mississippi
  • Clayton Thorson, Northwestern

Questions to be answered?

Browning threw 43 touchdowns in 2016, but only 35 over the next two seasons.

Did Jake Browning peak his sophomore year? And does he still have what it takes to move up to the next level?

How much does Ryan Finely weigh? Is he big enough to take repeated shots and hold up?

Does the athletic Nick Fitzgerald have enough accuracy to transition to the pro game?

Scouts keep looking at Trace McSorley, there are questions about his height and accuracy, but he’s scrappy. Will he interview well enough to convince a team he’s got what it takes?

How tall is Kyler Murray? How much does he weigh? And does he really have 4.3 speed?

Can Kyle Shurmer perform well enough in the position drills to move up the draft boards?

Is Easton Stick a novelty or the next generation of quarterback?

Does Jarrett Stidham have enough arm strength?

Has Jordan Ta’amu been mistakenly ignored?

Can the workman-like Clayton Thorson wow scouts?

Pro Day watch list:

Cornelius and Blough both displayed good arm-strength and poor decision-making (aka: turning the ball over) at the East-West Shrine Game. Can they convince teams they can overcome adversity?

McMaryion also played at the East-West Shrine Game. He met with the LA Rams and NO Saints. Coming in somewhere around 6-1, 196, he has a small frame which could be a concern at the next level.

Same could be said of Amir Hall, an outstanding DII player from Bowie State. He’s listed at 6-4, 195, and also looks thin-framed.

Justice Hansen has a quick release, but has played in an spread offense that throws a lot of screens and bubble routes. He wasn’t invited to participate any post-season games, so his Pro Day will be big.

It’s been said a number of times, that while No. Dakota State’s Easton Stick has had more team success, So. Dakota State’s Taryn Christion has certainly put up better individual stats. A good Pro Day for Christion and he could find himself getting drafted.

Devlin Hodges broke Steve “Air” McNair’s all-time passing record; he beat out Easton Stick to win the Walter Payton Award and was named the FCS Player of the Year Award; and still, he wasn’t invited to the Combine?

2018 William V. Campbell Award

COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S “ACADEMIC HEISMAN”

The William V. Campbell, formerly the Vincent dePaul Draddy Trophy, is a trophy awarded by the National Football Foundation that is given to the American college football player with the best combination of academics, community service, and on-field performance. It is considered by many to be the “Academic Heisman.”

The centerpiece to the NFF’s scholar-athlete program, The William V. Campbell Trophy was first awarded in 1990. It is named in honor of the late Bill Campbell, the former chairman of Intuit, former player and head coach at Columbia University and the 2004 recipient of the NFF’s Gold Medal.

THIS YEARS WINNER…

CHRISTIAN WILKINS, DEFENSIVE END, CLEMSON TIGERS

Wilkins personifies the scholar-athlete ideal, having already earned his degree while twice claiming First Team All-America honors and guiding Clemson to a national championship.

After graduating in December 2017 with a 3.33 GPA in communication studies, Wilkins became the first scholarship player in Clemson football history to finish school in two and a half years. He will graduate this December with a master’s in athletic leadership. In addition to being a three-time All-ACC Academic Team member, Wilkins has twice received First Team Academic All-District honors. He was named the ACC’s 2018 Jim Tatum Award recipient as the top senior student-athlete among the conference’s football players.

A two-year team captain, Wilkins has guided Clemson to the No. 2 ranking, a perfect 13-0 record, the 2018 ACC title and a trip to the College Football Playoff Semifinal. A finalist for the 2018 Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Outland Trophy, he has amassed 45 tackles on the season, including 13.5 tackles for loss. The 2018 First Team All-ACC defensive lineman is also a finalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy and has five sacks, one forced fumble, and two fumble recovery to his name this year. Wilkins was the runner-up for both the ACC Player of the Year and the ACC Defensive Player of the Year for 2018.

Wilkins leads a Clemson unit that tops the ACC and is tied for second in the nation in scoring defense, holding opponents to just 13.7 points per game. Clemson’s rushing defense is also atop the ACC, limiting opposing teams to 93 yards per game on the ground, which is the third best average in the nation. The Tigers rank second in the ACC and fourth in the nation in total defense, limiting offenses to 276.8 yards per game.
