Figured I'd end with the Number 1 Overall Pick this year.
We come to the end of the 2012 NFL Draft. We've made our picks as have our rivals, all that's left to do is sign a few UDFA's and possibly a Veteran Free Agent or two, which Rod Graves and Ken Whisenhunt haven't shut down yet. Lets take a look at the picks from rounds 4-7. One thing I will be doing differently is not incorporating grades, which seemed to upset a few people last night.With the 96th Overall Pick the St. Louis Rams Select... Chris Givens WR Wake Forrest: Bradford has a deep man now. He is extremely fast while running in a straight line, which allows him to burn DB's. NFL Analysts are comparing him to Philadelphia's Jeremy Maclin based on his movements in route. He was initially projected to go late first round to early second, and can immediately make an impact on the Rams.
With the 106th Overall Pick the Seattle Seahawks Select... Robert Turbin Utah St: He's someone who consistently ran for 100 yards a game whilst at Utah State. He was expected to go Mid Second round in earlier Mock Drafts but fell out. He's a physical back who will be competing to become the teams Four-Minute back.
With the 114th Overall Pick the Seattle Seahawks Select... Jaye Howard DT Florida: Good size and can make plays. The only downside is that he disappears for long stretches, and as NFL.com explains it, that will be his toughest challenge moving into the next level.
With the 117th Overall Pick the San Francisco 49ers Select... Joe Looney Guard Wake Forrest: Fills a need that the Niners had in the interior of their line. With Adam Snyder coming to Arizona, they needed someone to replace him and Looney may be that guy. He blocks very well in the Run game and needs to work on his Pass Blocking footwork.
With the 150th Overall Pick the St. Louis Rams Select... Rokevious Watkins Tackle South Carolina: Played Guard for 2 years at South Carolina before being flip flopped from Right and Left Tackle in his Senior Year. Has a high motor and can create a big push in the Run Game, something that Steven Jackson will love.
With the 151st Overall Pick the Arizona Cardinals Select... Senio Kelemete Guard Washington: Here for the ROTB Reaction.
With the 154th Overall Pick the Seattle Seahawks Select... Korey Toomer ILB Idaho: Another head scratcher from the Seahawks... A lot of Mock Drafts that I saw didn't have him getting Drafted. He has speed and athleticism that could help him make the cut as a Special Teamer.
With the 165th Overall Pick the San Francisco 49ers Select... Darius Fleming OLB Notre Dame: Adds depth to the Niners Linebacking Corps. Will also be a solid contributor to their Special Teams unit.
With the 171st Overall Pick the St. Louis Rams Select... Greg Zeurlein Kicker Missouri Western: Can make kicks from all over the field. Being in a Dome also helps him.
With the 172 Overall Pick the Seattle Seahawks Select... Jeremy Lane CB Northwestern State: It seems Pete Carrol wanted Special Teamers. Can contribute as a solid starter as a Gunner.
With the 177th Overall Pick the Arizona Cardinals Select... Justin Bethel CB Presbyterian: Here's our ROTB Reaction.
With the 180th Overall Pick the San Francisco 49ers Select... Trent Robinson FS Michigan State: Started three years with the Spartans tremendous leader, and shows tremendous instincts and toughness despite his rather slim frame.
With the 181st Overall Pick the Seattle Seahawks Select... Winston Guy DB Kentucky: He was moved into Kentucky's hybrid Safety.Lineback position last spring, and quickly got into it. Can play any of the DB positions, and can contribute to Special Teams.
With the 185th Overall Pick the Arizona Cardinals Select... Ryan Lindley QB SDSU: Here's our ROTB Thoughts.
With the 199th Overall Pick the San Francisco 49erss Select... Jason Slowey Center Western Oregon: Played as a LT most of his collegiate career, shows the footwork, balance, and strength to be a solid Center in the NFL.
With the 209th Overall Pick the St. Louis Rams Select... Aaron Brown LB Hawaii: Played and started games as a Linebacker had 130 Tackles, 23.5 of those being for a loss. The majority of those numbers came this season.
With the 221st Overall Pick the Arizona Cardinals Select... Nate Potter Tackle Boise State: The final Arizona pick in the 2012 draft... Here's our ROTB thoughts and analysis on him.
With the 225th Overall Pick the Seattle Seahawks Select... J R Sweezy DE NC State: Many are calling him this years JJ Watts, who currently resides with the Houston Texans. He can play both in a 4-3 or 3-4, but is better suited in the 3-4 defensive scheme.
With the 232nd Overall Pick the Seattle Seahakws Select... Greg Scruggs DE Louisville: Not much to say, he'll more than likely be battling for a backup spot on the roster.
With the 237th Overall Pick the San Francisco 49ers Select... Cam Johnson DE Virginia: I had him going 4th or 5th Round but he slipped to the 7th round. Can emerge as a contributor to the Niners Defense.
With the 252nd Overall Pick the St. Louis Rams Select... Daryl Richardson RB Abilene Christian: The final pick the NFC West makes goes to Richardson who I don't see as anything more than a 3rd Stringer or as a camp body.
That wraps up the 2012 NFL Draft... Who had the best draft? You know where the comments are.
