139. Dameon Pierce, RB, Florida (5-10, 218 pounds)

Pierce is a low-volume college back with untapped upside with his power and agility profile.

140. Jerome Ford, RB, Cincinnati (5-10, 210 pounds)    

Ford is getting more buzz as a classic strength-speed-hands prospect, making him a unique complementary change of pace.

141. Kerby Joseph, S, Illinois (6-1, 203 pounds)    

Joseph is a great cover man who doubles as an active ballhawk but he’s not really an in-the-box option.

Kerby Joseph

142. Alontae Taylor, CB, Tennessee (6-0, 199 pounds)    

Taylor offers good size and fluidity for zone coverage and can be a nice asset in subpackages.

143. Jesse Luketa, LB, Penn State (6-3, 253 pounds)    

Luketa is an active, high-effort tackler with good mental and physical toughness.

144. Dominique Robinson, EDGE, Miami (Ohio) (6-5, 253 pounds)    

Robinson is a terrific athlete with explosive qualities who’s still putting it all together as a pass rusher.

145. Cam Jurgens, G, Nebraska (6-3, 303 pounds)   

Jurgens is a compact, well-rounded blocker who needs to improve his athletic traits to be more than a interior backup.

146. Romeo Doubs, WR,  Nevada (6-2, 201 pounds)    

Doubs uses his size well as an outside possession receiver but needs to expand his game to be more than that.

147. Dane Belton, S, Iowa (6-1, 205 pounds)    

Belton offers a lot of range as a cover man and on-ball playmaker to thrive in a cornerback hybrid role.

148. Montaric Brown, CB, Arkansas (6-0, 196 pounds)   

Brown uses his size well as a physical short-area zone cover man.

149. Tyrese Robinson, G, Oklahoma (6-3, 217 pounds)    

Robinson is an intriguing pure power blocker with his strength and nastiness.

150. Terrel Bernard, LB, Baylor (6-1, 224 pounds)    

Bernard is a relentless cover specialist at his position with the speed to get everywhere.
