Grades: Round 1Round 23rd roundRound 45th roundRound 67th round

32. Steelers: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

Grade: A+

An extremely long, man-hugging corner. The game is a little up and down, but his highs are All-Pro caliber. Athletic and plus ball skills. Just what the Steelers need.

33. Titans: Will Lewis, QB, Kentucky

Grade: A-

Trade for QB, early 2nd round only. Cheaper than doing it in round 1. Lewis needs to improve his decision-making, footwork and accuracy, but has a strong arm and will be a threat at the next level. Positional value raises this mark.

34. Lions: Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa

Grade: A

YAC monster, big athlete, strong arms. Gave me George Kittle vibes. Fits easily into the vacancy created by the TJ Hockenson trade.

35. Raiders: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Grade: B+

A complete TE perspective. Not a crazy athlete, but does everything well. Not many people will lead, but I got Mark Andrew vibes. Catch everything. A subtle ability to open up.

36. Rams: Steve Avila, G, TCU

Grade: A

Large body interior lock. Agile and versatile. Not exactly a classic type of zone blocking scheme, but moves well. Grow roots in pass pro. Need to solidify your edges to the next level. Wise choice here

37. Seahawks: Derrick Hall, EDGE, Auburn

Grade: A-

A chiseled, explosive, decently curved rusher with a high level of productivity. Length of days. Passing moves must be developed. Exactly the type the Seahawks needed on the defensive line. Surprised it wasn’t DT, but he’s a bigger Carl Lawson.

38. Falcons: Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse

Grade: C

OT in college, maybe OG in the NFL. Severe twitching/explosion. Need to get significantly stronger. Wins are great. The losses are very ugly. Needs quite a bit of development, especially if he switches positions.

39. Panthers: Jonathan Mingo, WR, Ole Miss

Grade: B-

Big but compact WR with a RB-like frame and RB-like options after the catch. Tested perfectly. Carolina needs to rebuild the WR group. He’s a smaller version of DJ Moore.

40. Saints: Isaiah Fosky, EDGE, Notre Dame Cathedral

Grade: D+

Tough EDGE who doesn’t play up to his measured athleticism. Slower burst off the line. The rush is high and they lack leverage. The arsenal of pass-rush moves is lacking. Better edge rusher than pass rusher. It’s too early

41. Cardinals: BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

Grade: C+

An advanced runner who plays more athletically than his measured training. Karate master at the point of attack. Spreads the arms perfectly. Gotta get a lot stronger. A little lacking in length. A little early.

42. Packers: Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon St.

Grade: C+

Smooth, vertical seam stretcher at TE. A bit of an enigma as he only played two games in 2022. I didn’t realize how much YAC he could rack up in college. Fast indeed. A few drops on the film, but will allow you to grab with outstretched hands. One sneaky type of pony. Like to add Jordan Love.

43. Jets: Joe Tippman, C, Wisconsin

Grade: C+

Long but quick, athletic center. Great combo blocker. The anchor isn’t brutal, but it needs to get a lot stronger at the next level. Tends to overcome anxiety pass pro, lunging and disappear relatively often. It takes some time to develop, but the position makes sense.

44. Colts: Julius Brent, CB, Kansas St.

Grade: C+

Tall, crazy tall, elite tester. To twitch for days. The big upside. Can cover well but loses power following WRs and shows up on film with his ball skills. The exact type the Colts love. Likes athleticism, but comes with some risk.

45. Lions: Brian Branch, CB, Alabama

Grade: A

Best defensive back I’ve ever scouted. Instinctive playmaker in coverage in the middle. Extensive slot guard experience. Just a smaller athlete. It will be fun with Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.

46. ​​Patriots: Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech

Grade: C-

Patriots EDGE all the way. Huge, thick, strong arms. Well tested, but doesn’t play up to that level on the court. Can be slippery, traveling up or stiff and standing when he takes on blocks. Can he win the NFL fast enough? No insults?

47. Commanders: Jartavius ​​​​Martin, CB, Illinois

Grade: B+

A long, explosive, mobile safety with a complete game. Finds the ball well in the air. Strong, confident striker. Multiple roles can be played. Body control is also excellent.

48. Buccaneers: Cody Mauch, OT, North Dakota St.

Degree: B

Smooth, very versatile blocker who gets up and under rushers. A lot of weight/power needs to be added at the next level, but it plays with a lot of leverage. Tampa Bay had to add to the offensive line. A tick early, but I understand.

49. Steelers: Kean Benton, DT, Wisconsin

Grade: B+

Benton fits the Steelers prototype. Inside, a no-nonsense masseuse who plays with excellent bangs and strong, active hands. Lots of athleticism to get to the sideline. Not much of a pass seeker.

50. Packers: Jaden Reed, WR, Michigan St.

Grade: A

Draft of my crush. Smaller and untested through the roof, but is such a nimble route runner and has plus speed. Gets open regularly, flashes after the catch and tracks the football perfectly. Contested catch winner.

51. Dolphins: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Grade: A-

This is a battle-tested, ferocious wing capable of covering the perimeter. Athletic and strong. A little surprised it was CB given their depth, but Smith is a stud.

52. Seahawks: Zach Charbonnet, RB, UCLA

Grade: C

Charbonnet is a physical, athletic runner. Compact balance. But is it necessary after Kenneth Walker’s last season?

53. Bears: Gervon Dexter, DT, Florida

Grade: A-

Huge and effortlessly powerful. Can be played anywhere up and down the DL. Master of the bull rush. Difficult to move. Must create an arsenal of pass rush moves. A nifty concrete addition to the middle of Chicago’s defense.

54. Chargers: Tuli Tuipulotu, EDGE, USC

Degree: B

An advanced runner who is a good, not a great, athlete. A strange body type with short arms. It hurts at the site of their attack. I like the Chargers adding more EDGE talent. The new one must become much stronger. Just scratching the surface of how good he can be.

55. Leaders: Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

Grade: A-

Rice is a perimeter stud who can win contested catch scenarios and dominates with authoritative yards after the catch. Explosive. Just didn’t run different routes. A classic Chiefs pick. Trade up the dimensions a bit.

56. Bears: Tyreek Stevenson, CB, Miami

Grade: C

A physical sample of the project. Large coverage on film flashes is special. A lot of unanswered questions in the movie. A parent’s perspective. If he reaches his potential, he could be very good. But risky.

57. Giants: John Michael Schmidt, OC, Minnesota

Grade: A

Instant starter in center. Big but agile. Achieve many blocks in his film. There are also healing powers. Not dominant but just blocking everything. Fills a big need.

58. Cowboys: Luke Schoenmaker, TE, Michigan

Grade: C-

Strong hands. Not a YAC type at all and only broke out after a long career. A fun player who fills a need, but it’s too soon.

59. Bills: O’Cyrus Torrence, OG, Florida

Grade: A

A huge man who actually plays with more foot speed than his size suggests. Masher one-on-one scenarios. At the next level, you should use your length better, but already very good anchoring skills. More help for Josh Allen is a smart move for Buffalo.

60. Bengals: DJ Turner, CB, Michigan

Grade: B+

Not a particularly twitchy CB, but incredibly fast. Versatility from the inside out. Smaller, narrower frame. Good tackler. Aggressively attack the ball in the air. More new hires at Cincinnati High School.

61. Jaguars: Brenton Strange, TE, Penn St.

Grade: A-

Love this choice. Strange was an undersized weapon at Penn State, but thrives after the catch thanks to superior athleticism and contact strength. Can also open. Fun pairing with Evan Engram for Trevor Lawrence.

62. Texans: Juice Scruggs, C, Penn St.

Grade: C+

A fighter inside. He’s a blocker, not a one-on-one. Tested more sporty than in the game. Lots of experience. Solid combo blocker. It has a starter in reverse and isn’t brutal in any area, but it doesn’t have a specialty.

63. Broncos: Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma

Grade: B+

Produced in a wide-open Oklahoma offense, but has serious juice on all three levels. At the next level, vertical will win only with speed. YAC is good, not great. A fun addition to the offense. Was this the biggest need?
