Grades: Round 1 • Round 2 • Round 3 • Round 4 • Round 5 • Round 6Round 7

221. Bills: Travis Clayton, IOL, England

Grade: C+

At 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds with 35-inch arms and a sub 5.00 40-yard dash, this is a ridiculous athlete who is new to football from London. 

222. Commanders: Javontae Jean-Baptiste, Notre Dame

Grade: A-

Started at Ohio State and plays like an ascending defender because of his athleticism, bend, and glimmer of pass-rush moves around the corner. But is an older prospect already. Plus athlete. Has to get stronger. Plenty of length. Nice roll of the dice. 

223. Raiders, Trey Taylor, S, Air Force

Grade: A

Thick, productive three-level safety best closer to the line. Plays with controlled athleticism. Gets grabby against better athletes but that’s expect for larger safety. Solid ball skills. Not ultra twitchy. Smart well-rounded type. 

224. Bengals: Daijahn Anthony, S, Mississippi

Grade: A-

Spindly safety with speed who has just enough wiggle to play in the slot. Click-and-close is fun. Leaper in ball skills. Wants to be involved in run support but will miss a lot of tackles. Thumping strikes pop on film. 

225. Chargers: Brenden Rice, WR, USC

Grade: B+

Downfield specimen with quality size. Didn’t test amazingly but was a vertical weapon for Caleb Williams at USC. Stiff routes and only glimmers of YAC but has the power to run through some tackles. Fun fit with Justin Herbert. Son of NFL legend Jerry Rice. 

226. Cardinals: Jaden Davis, CB, Miami

Grade: C+

Fast nickel type. Former Oklahoma turned Miami product. Can play inside or outside. Reasonably good tackler. Minimal ball production in long college career. Will outplay draft position type.

227. Browns: Myles Harden, CB, South Dakota

Grade: A+

Low, crouched balanced backpedal. Chance of direction is easy for him. Fluid hip flip. Mirrored awesomely at FCS level. Quality not spectacular ball skills. Super short arms which will hurt him at next level. 

228. Ravens: Nick Samac, IOL, Michigan State

Grade: A

Arguably the best, most methodical run-blocker in the class. Plenty of experience. Not loads of anchoring skill but very aware of games up front from the defensive line. Shrewd pick here.

229. Raiders: M.J. Devonshire, CB, Pittsburgh

Grade: B+

Long CB who has the frame of a nickel. Fast, decently explosive athlete. Best in press man near the line. Average to slightly above-average ball skills. Zone awareness not there yet. High floor type. 

230. Vikings: Michael Jurgens, IOL, Wake Forest

Grade: B

Experienced center with reasonable burst off the line but not ability to sustain speed throughout the play. Power is there but can get overzealous and lunge, which hurts his balance and recovery ability. NFL-caliber size and length for the center spot. 

231. Patriots: Jaheim Bell, TE, FSU

Grade: A+

H-back type with explosive YAC traits. Cutting skill and natural ability to absorb contact and keep the legs churning. Won’t be a natural separator but when schemed open he can be a fun asset in the New England offense. 

232. Vikings: Levi Drake Rodriguez, DT, Texas A&M Commerce

Grade: C+

Upfield rusher at defensive tackle who tends to make himself an easy target for interior blockers because of his high pad level and not always active hands. Showed some initial pass-rush plans but not a big counter type. Motor hums every play. 

233. Cowboys: Nathan Thomas, IOL, Louisiana

Grade: A

No-nonsense power blocker with serious girth and starting caliber length to stay at OT in the NFL. Not a high-level athlete but wins with initial quicks and a deft utilization of his length to get into DLs in a flash. Recovery want-to is there. One of my favorite blockers in the class. 

234. Colts: Jonah Laulu, EDGE, Oklahoma

Grade: C

Tall, somewhat sleek interior rusher with great length. Can occasionally win with first-step quicks but not a trademark, and he leans into offensive lineman, which can make him susceptible to beaten controlled. Pass-rush plans have to evolve. 

235. Broncos: Devaughn Vele, WR, Utah

Grade: B

Tall long-striding vertical field-stretcher. Lacks burst off the ball. Can box out near the sideline and in traffic but not dominant in that area. YAC is good, not great. Intriguing type.

236. Jaguars: Myles Cole, LB, Texas Tech

Grade:

237. Bengals: Matt Lee, IOL, Miami

Grade:

238. Texans: Solomon Byrd, IOL, USC
