The Fanalysts have been grinding draft tape, monitoring team needs, and mock drafting since December. This 7-part mock-draft is one continuous mock draft and the our final one of the season for us. We will be releasing one article per day in the week leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.
This is a summary of the 7th Round of our mock draft for the 2019 NFL Draft. Over the course of the next 6 days we will release one round, working backwards, until all 254 of our selections are revealed prior to the 2019 NFL Draft.
|215||Tampa Bay |
|David Blough, QB, Purdue|
|216||Kansas City||Jonathan Ledbetter, EDGE, Georgia|
|217||New York Jets||Carl Granderson, EDGE, Wyoming|
|218||Oakland Raiders||Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington State|
|219||Pittsburgh Steelers||Dakota Allen, LB, Texas Tech|
|220||Houston Texans||Garrett Brumfield, iOL, LSU|
|221||Cleveland Browns||Bunchy Stallings, iOL, Kentucky|
The seventh round is filled with notable names-this draft class is not short of recognizable talent at any depth. In particular, this round is filled with quarterbacks who have impressed either over the course of their collegiate careers, or during the NFL Draft Process.
David Blough was a leader for the Boilermakers, and performed well during the Shrine Game. Blough offers the Boilermakers a developmental prospect that much be more effective with a clipboard in his hand than he would be with a football.
The Raiders get the fiery Garner Minshew-a true gamer that Jon Gruden can fall in love with. Minshew has a high ceiling, but if nothing else he will serve as a great scout team asset, and developmental project for Gruden and Mayock.
|222||Chicago Bears||Shareef Miller, EDGE, Penn State|
|223||Cincinnati Bengals||Joshua Miles, OT, Morgan State|
|224||Detroit Lions||B.J. Blunt, S, McNeese State|
|225||Buffalo Bills||Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson|
|226||Green Bay Packers||Ryan Finley, QB, NC State|
|227||Washington||Ashton Dulin, WR, Malone College|
|228||Buffalo Bills||Trace McSorely, QB, Penn State|
|229||Detroit Lions||Myles Gaskin, RB, Washington|
It takes 227 picks, but finally Ashton Dulin, the small school DII phenom, is selected by the same Washington squad that took draft twitter favorite Trey Quinn to end last year’s draft. Dulin instantly joins a competitive wide receiver competition that also includes a big name wideout prospect who was taken in the first round (tune in to see who went at 15th overall).
In a move that sure to frustrate fantasy football players, the Lions take Myles Gaskin, the highly productive four year starter from Washington, with their final selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. Gaskin can serve as a great change of pace back for Kerryon Johnson-whom the coaching staff has already suggestion will be on a “pitch count” for the 2019 season.
|230||Atlanta Falcons||Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota State|
|231||New Orleans||Tony Pollard, RB, Memphis|
|232||New York Giants||Jordan Brailford, EDGE, Oklahoma State|
|233||Miami Dolphins||Marvell Tell, S, USC|
|234||Miami Dolphins||Jovon Durante, WR, FAU|
|235||Oakland Raiders||Ryan Davis, WR, Auburn|
|236||Jacksonville Jaguars||CeCe Jefferson, EDGE, Florida|
|237||Denver Broncos||Jakobi Meyers, WR, NC State|
Tony Pollard is the lesser known back from Memphis in the 2019 NFL Draft (see: Darrell Henderson). Pollard was a staple of the Tigers’ offense, though, and knows how to succeed as a rotational back. With Kamara and Murray getting the majority of snaps, at least for the 2019 season, Pollard’s impact may be limited in the boxscore but he offers the Saints an effective change of pace back, and great depth at a critical position.
|238||Chicago Bears||Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern|
|239||New England Patriots||Donald Parham, TE, Stetson|
|240||Indianapolis Colts||Bryce Love, RB, Stanford|
|241||Dallas Cowboys||Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska|
|242||Los Angeles Chargers||Jamal Peters, CB, Mississippi|
|243||New England Patriots||Michael Jordan, iOL, Ohio State|
|244||New Orleans||Lester Cotton, iOL, Alabama|
|245||New York Giants||Kyle Shurmer, QB, Vanderbilt|
Donald Parham out of small school Stetson gained a lot of momentum after being selected to participate in the 2019 Shrine Bowl. Parham is 6’8″, 243 lbs and can be, quite literally, a large impact for the Patriots as they attempt to fill their TE void.
Bryce Love, the former Heisman runner up, plummeted to nearly Mr. Irrelevant in our final 2019 NFL Draft mock. Indianapolis adds a high upside running back to an already talented running back corps. If Love reaches his potential they get a huge steal here, if not the investment is low for the Colts.
In a bit of irony, and perhaps satire-the only quarterback the Giants selected in our mock draft is Kyle Shurmer, the son of the New York Giants head coach. He is certainly not the replacement for Eli Manning, but someone has to hold the clipboard, and Kyle Lauletta rarely does himself any favors.
|246||New England Patriots||Ulysees Gilber III, LB, Akron|
|247||Minnesota Vikings||Tyree St. Louis, OT, Miami|
|248||Arizona Cardinals||Alexander Mattison, RB, Boise State|
|249||Arizona Cardinals||Dennis Daley, OT, South Carolina|
|250||Minnesota Vikings||Malik Reed, EDGE, Nevada|
|251||Los Angeles Rams||Donnie Lewis Jr., CB, Tulane|
|252||New England Patriots||Khari Wills, S, Michigan State|
|253||Washington||Calvin Anderson, OT, Texas|
|254||Arizona Cardinals||C.J. Conrad, TE, Kentucky|
Our 2019 NFL Draft mock Mr. Irrelevant is C.J. Conrad-the tight end out of Kentucky. Conrad was a popular tight end heading into the 2018 season, but lost steam from a less than impressive season for the Wildcats. Still, Conrad can immediately contend for playing time in what is likely to be a revamped Arizona offense. He is one of many weapons we have the Arizona Cardinals taking throughout this NFL Draft mock.
