78. Dallas Cowboys – Ahmad Dixon, SS, Baylor (Dan)
Dixon gets to stay in his home state and bring some energy and big-hit ability to a lackluster Dallas secondary.
79. Baltimore Ravens – Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State (Kyle)
If Marcus Martin is the best center in the draft, Weston Richburg is not far behind. The Ravens add him to compete for the starting job in Baltimore.
80. New York Jets – Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB, Texas (Dan)
Jeffcoat may not be a complete defensive player, but he knows how to get after the quarterback and would make a great pairing next to Muhammed Wilkerson.
81. Miami Dolphins – Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU (Kyle)
The Dolphins just cannot seem to settle on a lead back in Miami. Jeremy Hill could be an instant upgrade.
82. Chicago Bears – Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas (Dan)
Although a bit undersized at 6-foot-1 and 265 pounds, Smith brings some punch to the defensive end position and excels both against the run and getting after the passer.
83. Cleveland Browns – Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska (Kyle)
Stanley Jean-Baptiste is a project player. He is probably too raw to start immediately, but could be a phenomenal player in coverage with some coaching. The Browns will gladly gamble on his size and freakish athleticism.
84. Arizona Cardinals – Yawin Smallwood, LB, UConn (Dan)
Smallwood’s stock has dropped some with a terrible forty time (5.01), but if you watch him on film, he plays faster than he times. Smallwood is still one of the better inside linebackers in this draft.
85. Green Bay Packers – C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa (Kyle)
The Packers have a number of tight ends on their roster, but none that will fill the gap that Finley could leave. Fiedorwicz might be the most well-rounded tight end in the draft.
86. Philadelphia Eagles – Ego Ferguson, DT, LSU (Dan)
The Eagles need an interior rusher and Ferguson is the best remaining on the board. The former LSU defensive tackle could be a nice complement to Ealy on the Eagles defensive front.
87. Kansas City Chiefs – Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee (Kyle)
The Chiefs drafted Eric Fisher in the first round last year, but they will need some help on the other side of the line after losing Brandon Albert.
88. Cincinnati Bengals – Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson (Dan)
Bryant is a bit raw and may need time to develop, but his ceiling is high and could make a dynamic second receiving option alongside A.J. Green.
