Round 6 (184): MARTEZ IVEY , OT – FLORIDA
Round 6 (204): KHALIL HODGE , LB – BUFFALO
Round 7 (224): BRYCE LOVE, RB – STANFORD
Round 7 (229): EASTON STICK , QB – NORTH DAKOTA STATE
Payne’s Quick Take: All set to surrender to the fates and take a tight end in the top ten, and Nick Bosa was still sitting there at #8– my pre-mock plan fell apart from there a little bit.
Even so, Deebo Samuel could help right away (just in case we can do better than Danny Amendola at slot receiver), former QB child prodigy David Sills V would be an interesting pairing with Stafford, and I think the main purpose of the 7th round is to draft guys with names like Easton Stick.
Site Expert’s Take: Bosa falling to Detroit eighth overall would be amazing as most don’t see him getting out of the top three. Samuel is a name to watch in the second round for sure. And Love has been tumbling draft boards due to concerns about stiffness in his knee. But in the seventh round, he could be a real hidden gem on a stocked depth chart that would allow Love plenty of time to heal.
