Rounds 4-7 Review

Houston found a possible quarterback of the future.

Winners:

1. San Francisco 49ers: The Niners added seven players on Day Three, including a trio of cornerbacks. The Niners also landed WR Bruce Ellington, who slid to the fourth round.

2. Houston Texans: The Texans drafted QB Tom Savage, a developmental prospect and possible starter down the road. Savage was one of six Day Three players selected by Houston.

3. St. Louis Rams: The Rams selected DE/OLB Michael Sam in the late seventh round. The franchise also nabbed QB Garrett Gilbert out of SMU.

Losers:

1. Dallas Cowboys: Somehow five of the Cowboys’ six Day Three picks ended up in the final round. The Cowboys failed to haul any firepower to the franchise on Saturday.

2. Indianapolis Colts: Indy’s boring draft continued. With only five picks, the Colts had very limited options.

3. Seattle Seahawks: All but two of the Seahawks’ draftees were selected on Day Three. The Seahawks lost key talent this offseason, and didn’t do enough to fill the hole.

Thoughts:

  • In the fourth round, the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans drafted QB’s Logan Thomas and the aforementioned Savage, respectively. Both teams have developmental signal callers with starting potential.
  • In the fifth round, the Kansas City Chiefs selected QB Aaron Murray. One pick later, the Cincinnati Bengals added QB AJ McCarron. Both franchises have unstable quarterback situations.
  • The Washington Redskins drafted talented RB Lache Seastrunk in the sixth round. Running back value is universal.
  • The Chicago Bears snagged a punter, Pat O’Donnell, in the sixth round. O’Donnell benched more reps than Jadeveon Clowney at the Scouting Combine.
  • DE/OLB Michael Sam was selected by the St. Louis Rams toward the end of the seventh round. Sam was the first openly gay player to be selected in the draft.
