Joe Mixon, Running Back, Oklahoma – I have been one of the most outspoken people against Mixon playing in the NFL. But the third round is the right place to take a chance on his ability. Some have said he would have been the first running back off the board, if not for the off the field issues. If Mixon can be a game-changing back and show that he put the past behind him and has matured, then he could be the best running back on the roster since Fred Taylor. Round 4, 110th Overall: Josh Dobbs, QB, Tennessee – Possibly the smartest player in the Draft. The Tennessee product may not have had the season everyone envisioned last season. Nevertheless, Dobbs is my choice to be the next Dak Prescott. Dobbs has a solid arm and is a model passer. The only thing I’d like to see is that he gain some more weight to handle taking a hit. Round 5, 148th Overall: Jake Butt, Tight End, Michigan – He is a Tom Coughlin-type player. Good size, hard-nosed and can catch the football across the middle. He could also play a Travis Kelce-type role in the offense and become a nice red zone target. The Jacksonville Jaguars signed Mychal Rivera. However, they still need another set of hands to go along with Marcedes Lewis, Neal Sterling, and Ben Koyack. Round 6, 187th Overall: Josh Harvey-Clemons, Safety, Louisville – He has good size and speed. Harvey-Clemons was unable to play in the Senior Bowl due to injury. He had 61 tackles and two passes broken up in 2016. He could be a solid special teams player. Round 7, 222nd Overall: Julie’n Davenport, Tackle, Bucknell – Certainly a project with a lot of upside. He does a good job of getting out in space and tackling downfield. He has good footwork and will have to work on playing against bigger, quicker defensive linemen. Round 7, 240th Overall: Corey Levin, Guard, Chattanooga – No, he isn’t related to me, but he does have a chance to make it in the NFL. At 6-foot-4 and 307, Levin will have to prove he can handle playing at the pro level. Seeing that his college days were at Chattanooga. He could be one of those late-round steals. He is a three-time small school All-American.
