130. Zack Kuntz, TE, Old Dominion (6-7, 255 pounds)

He’s fast and very athletic and that gives him some intriguing upside as he tries to refine his route-running and hands as a receiver.

131. Brenton Cox Jr., LB, Florida (6-4, 250 pounds)

Cox is a strong upfield player vs. the run and in the pass rush who can complement a more well-rounded linebacker well in a 3-4.

132. Will Mallory, TE, Miami (6-4, 239 pounds)

Mallory is an athletic receiver with great agility and some potential to grow into a valuable in-line blocking asset.

133. Rakim Jarrett, WR, Maryland (6-0, 192 pounds)

Jarrett is a speedy and quick slot option with some rare big-play upside inside.

134. Ryan Hayes, OT, Michigan (6-6, 298 pounds)

Hayes offers a team fine size, experience and technique for pass protection as a seasoned starter. His power limitations proved to be less glaring.

135. DeWayne McBride, RB, UAB (5-10, 209 pounds)

McBride has appeal as a compact power back who oftens runs like a dynamic change of pace.

136. Riley Moss, CB Iowa (6-1, 193 pounds)

Moss has the smarts, size and strength to help the right defense as a subpackage player.

137. Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse (5-9, 207 pounds)

Tucker is a strong, compact sometimes explosive runner who needs to get better with blocking and receiving.

138. Kei’Trel Clark, CB, Louisville (5-10, 181 pounds)

Clark is a very speedy corner. He is intriguing late because he fights to play bigger than his size.

139. Darius Rush, CB, South Carolina (6-2, 198 pounds)

He was overshadowed by teammate Cam Smith at times, but Rush got more attention for putting some standout athleticism with his impressive size.

140. Jarrett Patterson, G, Notre Dame (6-5, 306 pounds)

Patterson uses his strength well as a blocker but could work on being more nimble for the next level of speed and quickness he will face.

141. Ricky Stromberg, G, Arkansas (6-3, 306 pounds)

Stromberg has a good blend of strength and athleticism for the inside to the point he can be a solid swing backup with some starting potential in time.

142. Josh Whyle, TE, Cincinnati (6-6, 248 pounds)

Whyle is a very skilled receiving prospect who can learn to use his size better in working to get open on his routes.

143. Nick Broeker, G, Ole Miss (6-4, 305 pounds)

Broeker is getting more attention for being a smashing power run blocker who can still grow as an athlete.

144. Aidan O’Connell, QB, Purdue (6-3, 213 pounds)

O’Connell is a sturdy pocket passer who’s adaptable to most systems with accurate short-to-intermediate work.

145. Owen Pappoe, LB, Auburn (6-0, 225 pounds)

Pappoe is a rising run-stopping and cover linebacker who has the potential to be a lot more productive in those areas in the NFL.

146. Mike Morris, EDGE, Michigan (6-5, 275 pounds)

Morris uses his high-effort approach to be very productive but he could further expand the explosive part of his game.

147. Carter Warren, OT, Pittsburgh (6-5, 311 pounds)

Warren has the size and strength to be developed well into a more agile pass protector and nastier run blocker.

148. Viliami Fehoko Jr., EDGE, San Jose State (6-4, 276 pounds)

Fehoko is a strong player getting to the QB either inside or outside from different spots on the line with a welcome nasty streak.

149. Warren McLendon Jr., OT, Georgia (6-4, 306 pounds)

McLendon is a high-effort savvy blocker who needs to develop more to hold up well outside in the NFL.

150. Richard Gouraige, OT, Florida (6-5, 306 pounds)

Gouraige does a little bit of everything well from multiple positions to think he will be a strong swing backup.

151. Anthony Johnson Jr., S, Iowa State (6-0, 205 pounds)

152. Braeden Daniels, OT, Utah (6-4, 294 pounds)

153. Ronnie Hickman Jr., S, Ohio State (6-0, 203 pounds)
