Round 6 and Round 7 – This is when teams start searching for a lottery ticket. A player with tools whose lightbulb comes on in the NFL.
Charlie Kolar – TE – Iowa State – Kolar possesses above average hands. A big body at 6’6” and 255 lbs. Kolar could make a solid contributor in two and three tight end sets.
Chris Paul – IOL – Tulsa – Paul had a solid career at Tulsa having been a starter there for all four of his years. Two each at guard and tackle. Paul screams of position flexibility. Paul most likely would find himself on the practice squad for a year or two in hopes of development.
Jaylen Nailor – WR – Michigan State – I mean who wouldn’t want another Jaylen at wide receiver. Unfortunately for Nailor he doesn’t possess the type of speed Waddle does. Nailor though. Nailor did average nearly 17 yds per catch at MSU. Nailor did show solid testing metrics at the combine finishing among the top eight among wide receivers in five out of the six events he participated in. Nailor could be a 5th or 6th receiver as well as potentially handling kick return duties.
DeAngelo Malone – Edge – Western Kentucky – Malone was the Conference USA defensive player of the year in 2021(the last year he played). He put up impressive numbers with 94 total tackles (17.5 for loss) as well as nine sacks, four forced fumbles and four pass break ups. Malone would be an interesting addition to potentially develop into a pass rushing edge for the future.
