Robots don't care where I've been.

31.  Dallas Goedert- TE, S. Dakota State (27,47,N,N)(Drafted #49)

He's a big, bad dude with the size, speed and hands to become a Pro Bowl tight end.  There is some projection since he came from a small school, but we like what we see.

32.  Justin Reid- S, Stanford (N,N,N,34) (Drafted #68)

One of the best athletes in the draft, Reid posted a 4.40 and a top level 3-cone at 6'1", 205.  His brother Eric is currently an NFL starter (with a Pro Bowl appearance) and in 2017 Justin showed all of the traits of a top level NFL safety with 94 tackles and 5 interceptions.

33.  Mike Hughes- CB, UCF (37,N,N,35)(Drafted #30)

Hughes is small and has bounced around a bit in college, but he has the mentality and short area quickness to develop into a CB1.  Whether its as a boundry corner or slot corner remains to be seen.

34.  Courtland Sutton- WR, SMU (30,47,5,24)(Drafted #40)

Sutton's evaluation is all over the board with many considering him a top 20 pick and others not placing a top 50 grade on him. Some people hinted he would test at an elite level at the Combine, but he looked rather ordinary.  We're torn, mainly because of the recent history of highly rated "big" receivers.  Mike Williams, Kevin White and Laquon Treadwell are all first round jumbos who have been busts thus far in their careers.

35.  James Washington- WR, Oklahoma St. (27,N,N,19)(Drafted #60)

The 2017 Biletnikoff Award winner as college football's top receiver, Washington doesn't look the part at 5'11", 213, but he certainly produces.  At the Combine he showed impressive athleticism for his size (4.54, 34.5) and has three 1,000+ yard/10+ TD seasons along with an average YPC at nearly 20.

36.  Rashaan Evans- LB, Alabama (43,19,N,26) (Drafted #22)

He's not quite at the level of recent Bama linebackers.  Sometimes his instincts leave something to be desired, but he's a premier athlete who should become a starter early on.

37.  Kerryon Johnson- RB, Auburn (N,N,N,N)(Drafted #43)

He reminds us (and many other pundicators) of Le'veon Bell.  Our only real concern is whether his somewhat slight frame can withstand the rigors of the NFL.

38.  Harrison Phillips- DT, Stanford (N,32,N,N) (Drafted #96)

Strong hands are what stand out with Phillips. When he latches on forget about moving him. He's an excellent technician who should also generate interior pressure after posting 26 TFL and 14 sacks the past two years.

39.  Josh Allen- QB, Wyoming (34,14,50,5) (Drafted #7)

Allen is loaded with ability.  He shows flashes of being the next John Elway, but he's terribly inconsistent and it seems like that inconsistency relates to an inability to process defenses more than a correctible mechanical flaw. Jake Locker is his NFL comp.  Big guy, big arm, not a good tosser though and that's a problem when your job is to be a tosser.  Locker/Allen's college stats: Comp percentage 57%/56%; TD/INT ratio 1.9/2.1; Passer rating 126/135.  None of their numbers fit within our Holy Trinity which is why we didn't have Jake Locker (the 8th overall pick) or Josh Allen with a first round grade and one of many reasons we're the greatest scout in the history of professional football.

40.  Shaquem Griffin- LB, UCF (N,N,N,N)(Pick #141)

Griffin will need to go to a system with a creative DC who can use his unusual gifts. Griffin produced elite level numbers, and he did it regardless of the level of competition he played.  He posted 92 tackles and 31.5 sacks/TFL his junior year.  In 2017 he tallied 74 tackles and 20.5 sacks/TFLs. In the 2018 draft class only Harold Landry and Bradley Chubb have posted those type of numbers.  He will occasionally struggle to disengage, but no more than other linebackers we have scouted.  He also has two interceptions and 10 passes defensed the past two years, which are solid numbers for pass rushing specialist.  His athletic abiltity (4.38!) is on par with Roquan Smith and if used properly Griffin can be a disruptor at the next level.
