#186 Lions - Ty Johnson, RB, Maryland

OUTLOOK: An explosive runner, Johnson shows excellent vision and can hit the hole between the tackles but he also possesses the plus acceleration needed to cut it to the outside. A multi-purpose prospect who can also be a receiving threat and return weapon, Johnson is one of the best running back prospects no one is talking about leading up to the draft. He projects as a change of pace back at the next level with the ability to factor in on special teams but his dynamic speed gives him the chance to be more.

#187 Broncos - Juwann Winfree, WR, Colorado

#188 Titans - David Long, LB, West Virginia

OUTLOOK: What Long may lack in stature, he makes with aggression and physicality, showing little regard of his own or others physical well-being. Races upfield to attack the run, eagerly taking on hard-charging blockers in the hole. Surprisingly effective in slipping by blockers in close quarters, winning with leverage by bending at the knees and keeping his pads low to root out opponents at the ground level. Undersized frame that, frankly, looks better suited to safety than linebacker in the NFL. Lives and dies with his aggressive pursuit angles, leaving potential cut back lanes to be exploited with almost reckless paths to the ball. Below average upper body strength for the position with ball-carriers able to drag him or even occasionally break free of his arm tackles. Missed the first three games of 2017 after tearing his meniscus during offseason workouts. A heat-seeking missile who craves contact, Long projects as a special teamer with a chance to compete for playing time.

#189 Browns - Drew Forbes, G, Southeast Missouri State

OUTLOOK: One of few D-II prospects with a legitimate chance of being drafted, Forbes has dominated the competition with his intense style of play, low center of gravity and stellar balance. A team captain the past two seasons, he finished his career with 35 consecutive starts at left tackle. He’ll need to add some bulk to his upper body and will need a year or two in an NFL strength and conditioning program before he’s ready to make an impact but Forbes is an athlete, who also played basketball, soccer and track in high school. A mature player who is married.

#190 Vikings - Armon Watts, DT, Arkansas

OUTLOOK: A great blend of size, speed and strength, Watts is able to generate a strong push, to go along with excellent awareness. He possesses the ability to split double teams, penetrate the backfield and be a disruptor. The ability to pass-rush from the interior is something Watts has flashed throughout his career and doing it on a consistent basis in the SEC bodes well for his transition to the pros. He led the Razorbacks with seven sacks this past season and collected 42 tackles. Watts also demonstrates extremely active hands and flashes a quick get off. A tweaked hamstring prevented him from doing an extensive workout at his pro day but he did manage 20 bench press reps. His combination of size and athleticism makes him an attractive day three value.
