AUSTIN CORBETT

Second round, No. 33 overall

Guard, Nevada, 6-4?, 306 pounds

Dane Brugler, NFL Draft Guide summary: A four-year starter at Nevada, Corbett was a mainstay at left tackle for the Wolfpack, earning All-Conference honors the past three years. A two-year team captain, he has the professional makeup and mature leadership traits ready for an NFL locker room. While there are some questions about his inline power, Corbett is a technician in pass protection and as a run blocker, displaying violent hands — and better yet, he understands how to use them. His athleticism is best described as average with hip tightness that hurt his recovery skills, but his high intelligence helps mask those issues. Overall, Corbett played exclusively on the edges in college, but his pedigree and skill-set are ideally suited inside at center or guard where he projects as a long-term NFL starter.

NICK CHUBB

Second round, No. 35 overall

Running back, Georgia, 5-10?, 227 pounds

Dane Brugler, NFL Draft Guide summary: A four-year starter at Georgia, Chubb put himself on the NFL map with his outstanding freshman season, but his sophomore knee injury created questions about his future, appearing to be a lesser version of himself upon his return as a junior. However, Chubb produced senior tape reminiscent of his true freshman season, finishing with a 6.0 average in 2017 despite only two runs over 35 yards. Defenders better finish him to the ground because his balance, run purpose and lower body strength allow him to squirm out of tackle attempts. Chubb isn’t the most explosive runner, but he has light feet and skillfully marries his movements with his eyes. Overall, Chubb has a natural feel for the position and it is no coincidence that he finds running room due to his understanding of play design, patience and pace of action — projects as a capable NFL starter.

CHAD THOMAS

Third round, No. 67 overall

Defensive end, Miami, 6-5, 281 pounds

Dane Brugler, NFL Draft Guide summary: A three-year starter at Miami (Fla.), Thomas lined up with his hand on the ground as the starting left defensive end in the Hurricanes’ four-man front. Some in the scouting community have expressed concern about his passion for music, but he directly shuts down that narrative (Thomas at the NFL Scouting Combine: “If I liked music more than football, I wouldn’t be here.”). Thomas has impressive ease of movement for a man his size with the hammer hands and length to develop as a pass rush threat. He didn’t get home enough on film with average sack production, but his consistency was better vs. the run. Overall, Thomas isn’t a quick-twitch speed rusher who will consistently threaten the edge, but he has the upper body power and fluidity to be a base defensive end and valuable rotational player.

 

ANTONIO CALLAWAY

Fourth round, No. 105 overall

Wide receiver, Florida, 5-10 5/8, 200-pounds

Dane Brugler, NFL Draft Guide summary:   A two-year starter at Florida, Callaway was the featured weapon on the Gators’ offense during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, lining up across the formation and serving as the primary punt returner. He became the third-fastest player in school history to reach 1,000 career receiving yards, creating explosive plays with 21 of his 89 career catches resulting in 20+ yards. Quick as a hiccup, Callaway has the natural speed and ease of movement to be a home run threat any time he touches the ball. However, his film is riddled with mental mistakes and his poor off-field decision-making deserves scrutiny. Overall, Callaway is a sudden athlete with the playmaking skills to be a NFL starter, but his unreliable focus (both on and off the field) makes it tough to believe he will reach that sky-high potential.

 

GENARD AVERY

Fifth round, No. 150 overall

Linebacker, Memphis, 6-4, 248-pounds

Dane Brugler, NFL Draft Guide summary: A three-year starter at Memphis, Avery spent most of his collegiate career as the starting WILL linebacker, but finished his Memphis career as the “KAT” hybrid outside linebacker to utilize his rush skills – finished second in school history in career tackles for loss (45.5) and third in sacks (21.5). Avery is at his best as a downhill defender with his speed and toughness to attack, creating stopping power on clean-view tackle attempts. However, he has questionable instincts and twitch, often getting eaten up by blockers near the line of scrimmage. His pass rush skills and versatile experience are encouraging, but he is more of a blitzer than rusher right now with limited length and coverage skills. Overall, Avery has tweener traits and might struggle to find a home on defense, but his straight-line speed and competitive make-up could keep him on a roster as a special teamer while he fights for playing time on defense.

 

DAMION RATLEY

Sixth round, No. 175 overall

Wide receiver, Texas A&M, 6-1 5/8, 195-pounds

Lance Zierlein, NFL.com: Ratley’s combination of size, athleticism, and pure speed makes him an intriguing prospect despite the fact that he managed just 47 catches over his three seasons at Texas A&M. While he has bonafide field-stretching speed, he also has the athletic ability and foot quickness to handle underneath routes as well. Ratley is raw and will need to improve his press release and routes, but his explosiveness gives him a shot at making a roster or practice squad as a late rounder or undrafted free agent.

 

SIMEON THOMAS

Sixth round, No. 188 overall

Cornerback, Louisiana, 6-1 5/8, 197 pounds

DraftAnalyst.com summary: Two-year starter who led Louisiana-Lafayette in pass breakups in each of those seasons. Made 42 tackles (three for loss) with 12 pass breakups in 2017 despite missing two games due to issues with academic eligibility, which also cost him nine games in 2015, the entire 2014 season and three games of the 2013 season. Recorded 40 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble and five PBUs in 2016.
