Here's Rounds 4 - 7 of Big Jay's final seven round mock draft for BTSC this draft season. Discuss. - Michael B. -


Rounds 1 - 3


Round 4


98. Carolina Panthers - Kenrick Ellis NT, Hampton

Carolina took an under DT with the last pick and now they get a massive, space-eating NT with this one.


99. Seattle Seahawks (From New England via Denver) - Jaiquawn Jarrett S, Temple

Seattle continues to upgrade the secondary. Jarrett would be a great compliment to Earl Thomas.


100. Buffalo Bills - Jordan Cameron TE, USC

Buffalo's new QB will need a better safety-valve than Shawn Nelson.


101. Cincinnati Bengals - Pernell McPhee DE, Mississippi State

Antwan Odom is always hurt.


102. Cleveland Browns - Drake Nevis DT, LSU

Cleveland cut both Shaun Rogers and Kenyon Coleman.

103. Arizona Cardinals - Jason Pinkston OT, Pittsburgh

The Cardinals will be forced to double and maybe even triple dip on Offensive Linemen prospects because they have one of the worst lines in the NFL.


104. Philadelphia Eagles (via Washington Redskins) - Brandon Burton CB, Utah

Philly needs two CB's to replace Ellis Hobbs and relegate Dimitri Patterson to the Nickel position.


105. Houston Texans - Chimdi Chekwa CB, Ohio State

Houston needs someone to pair with 2010 rookie Kareem Jackson.


106. Minnesota Vikings - Shareece Wright CB, USC

Antoine Winfield is 34 years old and Cedric Griffin has injury issues.


107. Detroit Lions - Greg Jones LB, Michigan State

Detroit will need to address both OLB positions. Why not take the home town guy?


108. San Francisco 49ers - Lawrence Guy DE/DT, Arizona State

S.F. could use an upgrade over Isaac Sopoaga.


109. Tennessee Titans - Greg Romeus DE, Pittsburgh

Jason Babin is a 31 year old free agent who is likely seeking a big contract.


110. Dallas Cowboys - Deunta Williams S, UNC

Alan Ball was terrible last season and Gerald Sensabaugh is a free agent.


111. Miami Dolphins - Virgil Green TE, Nevada

Anthony Fasano just isn't cutting it.


112. St. Louis Rams - Jordan Todman RB, UConn

St. Louis needs someone to spell Steven Jackson before his wheels fall off.


113. Oakland Raiders - Ryan Bartholomew OC, Syracuse

Samson Satele is a free agent and Bartholomew is a combine warrior.


114. Jacksonville Jaguars - Lawrence Wilson OLB, UConn

Justin Durant is a free agent who's always hurt.


115. San Francisco 49ers (via San Diego Chargers) - Owen Marecic FB, Stanford

Coach Harbaugh gets one of his favorite players.


116. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jalil Brown CB, Colorado

Aqib Talib may be going to prison and Rhonde Barber isn't getting any younger.


117. New York Giants - K.J. Wright OLB, Mississippi State

The Giants could use an upgrade at every Linebacker position.


118. Kansas City Chiefs - Sione Fua NT, Stanford

Ron Edwards is a free agent.


119. Indianapolis Colts - John Moffitt OG, Wisconsin

Indy needs an upgrade over Ryan Diem at RT and over Mike Pollack at RG. GM Bill Polian gets to once again fulfill his love for the Big10 and Moffitt and Gabe Carimi get to continue playing together.


120. Philadelphia Eagles - Joseph Barksdale OT, LSU

Philly needs to replace Winston Justice at RT.


121. Jacksonville Jaguars (via New Orleans Saints) - Ahmad Black S, Florida

Jacksonville needs an upgrade at both safety positions.


122. Buffalo Bills (via Seattle Seahawks) - Chris Hairston OT, Clemson

Buffalo has nothing at OT.


123. Baltimore Ravens - Curtis Marsh CB, Utah State

The Ravens may double-dip at CB with three pending free agents at the position.


124. Atlanta Falcons - Greg Salas WR, Hawaii

Atlanta needs an upgrade over Michael Jenkins and Harry Douglas.


125. New England Patriots - DeMarcus Van Dyke CB, Miami

The Pats could use an upgrade over Kyle Arrington.


126. New York Jets - Ugo Chinasa DE/OLB, Oklahoma State

The Jets have to improve their pass-rush.


127. Chicago Bears - Terrell McClain DT, South Florida

Chicago needs a replacement for Tommy Harris.


128. Pittsburgh Steelers - Kelvin Sheppard ILB, LSU

It wouldn't be a Steelers draft without at least one linebacker selected. Given the talent available, plus the Steelers needs, Sheppard makes the most sense. He's a humble leader on and off the field and plays with a Steelers mentality. James Farrior can't play forever as his declining skills have indicated and the Steelers will need someone to fill in. I know they have Stevenson Sylvester but they can't rely on him alone and they'll need someone to compete with him for playing time. Sheppard is also the best talent available that fits a Steelers need. Other prospects would include Notre Dame NT Ian Williams, Rutgers S Joe Lefeged, Boise State WR Austin Pettis, Oregon State RB Jacquizz Rodgers, and Stanford CB Richard Sherman.


129. Green Bay Packers - Lee Ziemba OG/OT, Auburn

Daryn Colledge is a free agent.


130. (Compensatory pick) Tennessee Titans - Demarcus Love OG, Arkansas

Leroy Harris is a free agent and needs to be replaced anyway.


131. (Compensatory pick) Green Bay Packers - DeMarco Murray RB, Oklahoma

James Starks has injury issues, Brandon Jackson is a free agent, and Ryan Grant is in the final year of his contract and has injury issues of his own as well.


Round Five


132. Carolina Panthers - Rob Housler TE, Florida Atlantic

Carolina signed Jeremy Shockey but he's an injury-prone short-term solution at TE.


133. Buffalo Bills - Denarius Moore WR, Tennessee

There's a good chance that Lee Evans will be released at some point.


134. Cincinnati Bengals - Robert Sands SS, West Virginia

Robert Sands is a good fit for Cincy's defense.


135. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Denver Broncos) - Jacquizz Rodgers RB, Oregon State

With LeGarrette Blount as the starting RB Tampa needs a cheaper back-up and third-down back than pending free agent Cadillac Williams.


136. Arizona Cardinals - Jeremy Beal DE/OLB, Oklahoma

Arizona needs two pass-rushing OLB's.


137. Cleveland Browns - Ross Homan OLB, Ohio State

Cleveland lacks enough traditional linebackers' for a 4-3 defense.


138. Houston Texans - Joe Lefeged S, Rutgers

Bernard Pollard is a free agent and a huge liability in pass coverage.


139. Minnesota Vikings - Pierre Allen DE, Nebraska

Ray Edwards is a free agent.

Casey Wiegmann is 38 years old and can't play forever.

S.F. needs a better slot receiver than Ted Ginn.


142. Tennessee Titans - Chris Conte S, California

Chris Hope needs to be replaced.


143. Dallas Cowboys - Niles Paul WR, Nebraska

St. Louis needs an upgrade at WLB.

149. Philadelphia Eagles (via San Diego Chargers) - Dion Lewis RB, Pittsburgh

Jerome Harrison is a free agent.


150. Minnesota Vikings (via New York Giants) - Julius Thomas TE, Portland State

Visanthe Shiancoe will be a free agent next year and was terrible in 2010.


151. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Zach Hurd OT/OG, UConn

Tampa Bay has issues all along the O-line.


152. Indianapolis Colts - Roy Helu RB, Nebraska

Joseph Addai is a 28 year old free agent.


153. Philadelphia Eagles - Nathan Enderle QB, Idaho

With Kevin Kolb as good as traded whenever the lock out ends Andy Reid will need another young QB to groom for the future.


154. Detroit Lions (via Kansas City Chiefs) - Delone Carter RB, Syracuse

Washington will most likely part ways with Albert Haynesworth.

The Jets have to improve their outside pass-rush.


162. Pittsburgh Steelers - Derrick Locke RB, Kentucky

Mewelde Moore is a 29 year old free agent who is clearly on the decline. Locke is a big playmaker who can take it to the house any time he touches the ball.


163. Green Bay Packers - Anthony Gray NT, Southern Miss

The Packers could use defensive line depth with Johnny Jolly in constant trouble and Cullen Jenkins a free agent.


164. (Compensatory pick) Baltimore Ravens - Buster Skrine CB, UT-Chattanooga

The Ravens may double-dip at CB with three pending free agents at the position.


165. (Compensatory pick) Baltimore Ravens - Chris Culliver FS, South Carolina

Matt Hasselbeck and J.P. Losman are both free agents.

Shaun Ellis is a 34 year old free agent.


195. Chicago Bears - Tim Barnes OC, Missouri

Olin Kreutz is a 34 year old free agent.


196. Pittsburgh Steelers - Alex Henery K, Nebraska

Shaun Suisham is average at best. In addition to being the top kicker in this draft class Alex Henery is also a good punter, so given that Daniel Sepulveda has already torn the ACL in his knee three times that added skill may come in handy.

231. Pittsburgh Steelers - Frank Kearse NT, Alabama A&M
