The Jaguars selected Jalen Myrick in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 222nd overall.

Impact

Myrick made the most of his Combine invite, running a blazing 4.28-second 40 to get his draft stock trending in the right direction. His tape and diminutive size (5-10, 200) point to Myrick being a slot corner at the next level, but his speed and elusiveness in the return game should help him crack the roster as a special teamer at the very least.

The Vikings selected Ifeadi Odenigbo in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 220th overall.

Impact

Odenigbo is undersized for an end at just 258 points, and his lack of arm length will make it difficult for him to shed blocks. However, he is an impressive athlete with above-average metrics in nearly every Combine drill. Minnesota's depth up front means that Odenigbo has his work cut out for him if he wants to make the 53-man roster as a rookie.

The Chiefs selected McQuay in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 218th overall.

Impact

McQuay is a corner-safety tweener from USC who generally looks more like the latter for the Chiefs. He finished his senior year with 52 tackles and two interceptions on one of the country's better defenses.

The Titans selected Corey Levin in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 217th overall.

Impact

Tennessee's offensive line is a definite strength, so Levin is a depth option at best. Levin has nice size for a guard at 6-foot-4, 307 and he has heavy hands that help him control the point of attack. He also showed surprising short area maneuverability at the Combine with a 7.55-second 3-cone drill. Barring an injury up front, Levin could end up as a practice squad player as a rookie.

The Cowboys selected Marquez White in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 216th overall.

Impact

Dallas went back to the well in the secondary by nabbing its fourth defensive back of the draft. White has solid length for a corner but doesn't have the twitchy athletic ability most teams look for at corner. Still, Dallas was in desperate need of secondary help in this draft, so White fits the bill late in the sixth round.

The Lions selected Brad Kaaya in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 215th overall.

Impact

Kaaya was one of the better quarterbacks in college football the last three years, starting as a true freshman and finishing his three-year run with 9,968 yards (8.4 YPA), 69 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. Kaaya (6-foot-4, 214 pounds) is a skinny quarterback, however, and for some reason didn't add any weight since his freshman year. The NFL was evidently skeptical about his physical ability to play the position.

The Eagles selected Elijah Qualls in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 214th overall.

Impact

Qualls is squat at 6-foot-1, but he's got a surprising amount of athleticism and shows excellent strength along the defensive interior. He put up 33 reps on the bench at the Combine, which ranked among the best in this year's class. Philadelphia already has Fletcher Cox and Timmy Jernigan to clog the middle, but Qualls could be a worthwhile addition who can help in the run game.

The Steelers selected Colin Holba in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 213th overall.

Impact

Holba will compete for the Pittsburgh long-snapping role.

The Packers selected Kofi Amichia in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 212th overall.

Impact

Green Bay loaded up on defense and skill position players with its first several picks, but was able to address the offensive line in the sixth round. With the Packers' depth along the line, Amichia could be bound for the practice squad as a rookie.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that Brian Hoyer is still the team's starting quarterback despite taking C.J. Beathard in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Impact

Beathard was considered a developmental draft selection, so Hoyer's starting job is in no danger and Shanahan confirmed that sentiment Friday. The journeyman quarterback has shown flashes of fantasy usefulness over the past few seasons, but injuries have always cut the 32-year-old's seasons short. Health and inconsistent results will keep veteran's value depressed heading into drafts next season, but there is some potential for a career year under Shanahan, for whom Hoyer threw for a career-high 3,326 yards in 2014 when both were with the Browns.

The Patriots selected Conor McDermott in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 211th overall.

Impact

Yet another pick that will probably work out well for the Patriots. McDermott is an enormous tackle at 6-foot-8, 307 pounds, but he's a great athlete with a 5.18-second 40, 105-inch broad jump, and 7.52-second three-cone. In terms of frame and athleticism, he's not unlike Patriots tackle Nate Solder.

The Redskins selected Robert Davis in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 209th overall.

Impact

At this point in the draft, the Redskins could afford to roll the dice on upside and that's exactly what they're doing with the Davis selection. Davis blew up the Combine with a monstrous 136-inch broad jump and a 41.0-inch vertical to go with a 4.44 40-yard dash. He's not merely a workout warrior, however, as he pulled in a team-high 67 receptions for 968 yards and five touchdowns as a senior at Georgia State. Washinton's additions at receiver might make it difficult for him to see early playing time, but Davis is an under-the-radar receiver prospect in deep dynasty formats.

The Seahawks selected Justin Senior in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 210th overall.

Impact

Senior (6-foot-5, 331 pounds) played tackle at Mississippi, but with poor workout numbers and questionable length, he might be more of a guard consideration for Seattle.

The Bengals selected Brandon Wilson in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 207th overall.

Impact

Yet another nice pick for the Bengals. Wilson (5-foot-10, 198 pounds) is an excellent athlete and was a standout performer on one of college football's best defenses. At the Houston pro day he logged a 4.40-second 40, a 41-inch vertical and a 133-inch broad jump. He played some running back at Houston, but he's presumably a corner to the Bengals.

The Cardinals selected Rudy Ford in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 208th overall.

Impact

The former Auburn Tiger was the team's leading tackler in 2014 and 2015 and will bring toughness to the back end of the Cardinal defense. He also has the athleticism to return kicks, but the Cardinals' addition of T.J. Logan likely nixes that possibility. Arizona's depth in the secondary, including the addition of Budda Baker in the draft, makes Ford a long shot to see regular playing time as a rookie.

The Lions selected Jeremiah Ledbetter in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 205th overall.

Impact

Ledbetter (6-foot-3, 280 pounds) is a bowling ball of a defensive end who figures to see inside snaps in nickel formations. He has long arms and good strength to potentially transition inside on a full-time basis, too.

The Rams selected Sam Rogers in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 206th overall.

Impact

The Virginia Tech product is the first fullback off the board in the 2017 NFL Draft. By selecting Rogers, the Rams are showing at least some dedication towards getting better blocking in front of Todd Gurley. Rogers also had some utility as a pass catcher out of the backfield, nabbing 24 receptions last season.

The Jets selected Derrick Jones in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 204th overall.

Impact

Jones (6-foot-2, 189 pounds) is a lanky corner who is just an upside lottery ticket for the Jets at this point in the draft. At the Mississippi pro day he ran a 4.48-second 40 along with a 41-inch vertical and a remarkable 140-inch broad jump.

The Broncos selected De'Angelo Henderson in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 203rd overall.

Impact

Though undersized, Henderson is an intriguing running back prospect out of Coastal Carolina. He dominated at the FCS level and his film shows that Henderson possesses an excellent jump cut. What's more, Henderson does not shy away from contact despite checking in at 5-foot-8. C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker are the clear one-two punch for the Broncos, but Henderson could challenge Juwan Thompson or Bernard Pierce for the No.3 spot on the depth chart.

The Vikings selected Bucky Hodges in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 201st overall.

Impact

This is perhaps the most surprising faller in this year's draft. Hodges is a rare athlete at tight end and, despite a tendency for drops, proved productive as well. Even if the league doubts his skills as a tight end, it's surprising that a team wouldn't take him sooner for special teams play alone – this is a 6-foot-6, 257-pound player with a 4.57-second 40-yard dash, 39-inch vertical and 134-inch broad jump. Unfortunately, even if he proves his doubters wrong, the Minnesota offense likely won't afford him many targets as long as Kyle Rudolph is around.
