105. Cleveland Browns — Antonio Callaway (WR, Florida)
The Browns took a gamble on wideout Antonio Callaway. The Florida Gators receiver has plenty of talent, but off-the-field issues plagued him in his time in Gainesville. If Callaway can get it right, the Browns will certainly reap plenty of rewards from this pick.
114. Detroit Lions — Da’shawn Hand (DE, Alabama)
The Lions spent the 114th overall pick on an Alabama Crimson Tide defensive lineman. That being Da’shawn Hand, who will join A’Shawn Robinson on the Lions defensive line if he makes the team. Hand was plenty successful for the Tide in his time in Tuscaloosa, and could prove to be a coup if he pans out well.
118. Baltimore Ravens — Anthony Averett (CB, Alabama)
Naturally, Ozzie Newsome took an Alabama player. Cornerback Anthony Averett heads to Baltimore to hopefully make an impact on the Ravens defense. Their secondary has plenty of talent between Jimmy Smith and Eric Weddle, but for Averett’s sake, he makes a significant impact and joins the team come this fall.
124. Kansas City Chiefs — Armani Watts (S, Texas A&M)
Armani Watts will head from Aggieland to Kansas City, as the Chiefs took the Texas A&M Aggies safety with the 124th overall pick. Watts was plenty successful in his time with the Aggies, and hopes to make an impact next to the likes of Eric Berry when he hits the field for the Chiefs.
133. Green Bay Packers — J’Mon Moore (WR, Missouri)
The Missouri Tigers finally got on the board in the late 4th round. J’Mon Moore, the Tigers star wide receiver, was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 133rd overall pick. Moore enjoyed catching passes from Drew Lock in Columbia, and now will have Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball. Not a bad transition.
136. Carolina Panthers — Marquis Haynes (DE, Ole Miss)
The Ole Miss Rebels have yet another defensive lineman headed to the pros. Marquis Haynes was chosen by the Carolina Panthers with the 136th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Haynes will provide added depth to a very strong defensive line out in Charlotte.
167. Minnesota Vikings — Daniel Carlson (K, Auburn)
The celebrated kicker for the Auburn Tigers will head up north to play for the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings spent the 167th overall pick on the accomplished Daniel Carlson, who set plenty of records while wearing blue and orange. Now, he will hope to replicate that success while wearing purple, playing for a very competitive Vikings squad.
169. Indianapolis Colts — Jordan Wilkins (RB, Ole Miss)
Jordan Wilkins of the Ole Miss Rebels went off the board as well in the 5th round. The Indianapolis Colts decided to select Wilkins with the 169th overall pick in this year’s Draft. Wilkins goes into the pros on the heels of a 1,000-yard season at Ole Miss, where he scored nine touchdowns on the ground and added a receiving TD, as well.
172. Green Bay Packers — J.K. Scott (P, Alabama)
Punters are people too! J.K. Scott, one of the top punters in the country, was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the late 5th round. The Packers chose the Alabama Crimson Tide punter with the 172nd overall pick. Punt to win, as they say.
173. Oakland Raiders — Johnny Townsend (P, Florida)
What did we just say? Punt to win! Oakland followed the Packers up with the selection of Florida Gators punter Johnny Townsend. Gotta love a run on punters.
175. Cleveland Browns — Damion Ratley (WR, Texas A&M)
The Texas A&M Aggies got back on the board to start the 6th round. Damion Ratley was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 175th overall pick. Ratley caught 30 passes for 694 yards a season ago and scored six touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver certainly possesses plenty of promise, and hopefully gets himself a shot at a roster spot.
176. Los Angeles Rams — John Kelly (RB, Tennessee)
The LA Rams may have picked up a steal in John Kelly. Kelly, one of the best running backs in the SEC, succeeded for the Tennessee Volunteers a year ago, even if he wasn’t used all that much. His film shows a player who, if used at a higher rate, can make a serious impact. He probably won’t wrestle the starting job away from Todd Gurley, but he could be a very good complementary piece.
184. San Francisco 49ers — Marcell Harris (S, Florida)
Another Florida Gators defensive back went off the board in the early 6th round. Marcell Harris was selected with the 184th overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers. Harris didn’t play in 2017 but that didn’t stop the Niners from picking him. When he was on the field, Harris played pretty well, having had 73 tackles with two interceptions and a forced fumble back in 2016.
194. Atlanta Falcons — Russell Gage (WR, LSU)
Deion Jones and Duke Riley will reunite with LSU Tigers wide receiver Russell Gage. Gage was drafted by the Falcons with the 194th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Gage is a great athlete who could help the Falcons out on special teams and could project well as a wide receiver if they so choose to use him.
197. Washington — Shaun Dion Hamilton (ILB, Alabama)
Shaun Dion Hamilton will join Da’Ron Payne and fellow SEC superstar Derrius Guice with Washington. Washington used the 197th overall pick on Hamilton, a celebrated linebacker for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Hamilton will also join Jonathan Allen, who of course was drafted a year ago on their defense. It appears that Washington likes the Tide quite a lot.
198. Kansas City Chiefs — Kahlil McKenzie (OG, Tennessee)
Tennessee Volunteers guard Kahlil McKenzie will suit up for the Kansas City Chiefs. McKenzie will join the Chiefs offensive line if he can land a roster spot. He served himself pretty well at Tennessee, and will hope to make something of his NFL career despite being picked so late.
211. Houston Texans — Jordan Thomas (TE, Mississippi State)
The Mississippi St. Bulldogs got back on the board with the 211th selection in the 2018 Draft. The Houston Texans drafted tight end Jordan Thomas, a former JUCO recruit who played two years in Starkville. He amassed 31 catches and 311 receiving yards in those two seasons, and had 263 yards and three touchdowns this past season.
215. Baltimore Ravens — Bradley Bozeman (C, Alabama)
Ozzie Newsome’s final draft pick was, of course, an Alabama Crimson Tide player. That being center Bradley Bozeman, who joins the Ravens after being selected with the 215th overall pick. Bozeman was an anchor of Alabama’s stout line the past few seasons and should prove to translate to the NFL if he can touch up a couple things.
219. New England Patriots — Danny Etling (QB, LSU)
Yup, that’s right. LSU Tigers quarterback Danny Etling did, in fact, get drafted. Etling heads to New England where he’ll be playing alongside Brian Hoyer and Tom Brady. Etling was pretty serviceable for the Tigers in the past two seasons, although some might say otherwise. But hey, he got drafted! So what do those people know anyway?
224. Chicago Bears — Javon Wims (WR, Georgia)
Another Georgia Bulldogs player will be heading to the Windy City. This time, it’s Javon Wims. Wims, a wide receiver, was selected by the Chicago Bears with the 224th overall pick. The Bears, of course, already took his teammate Roquan Smith all the way back into the 1st round and have Leonard Floyd aboard, as well.
226. Denver Broncos — David Williams (RB, Arkansas)
Arkansas Razorbacks running back David Williams is the next SEC player to go off the board. Williams was drafted by the Denver Broncos, who selected him with the 226th overall pick. He is coming off a year in which he averaged 5.6 yards per carry and gained 656 yards and scored eight touchdowns. He was more than serviceable and still has a lot of tread on his tires, having only attempted 304 carries in his career at Arkansas.
236. Dallas Cowboys — Bo Scarbrough (RB, Alabama)
Bo Scarbrough found a home in Dallas. The Cowboys drafted the Alabama Crimson Tide tailback, who will hopefully remain healthy in his NFL career and make the roster after training camp. Physically, there’s obviously nothing to complain about. It’s just a matter of staying on the field.
239. Green Bay Packers — Hunter Bradley (LS, Mississippi State)
A long snapper!!
243. New Orleans Saints — Will Clapp (C, LSU)
An LSU player drafted by the Saints!! It actually happened!!!
244. Pittsburgh Steelers — Joshua Frazier (DT, Alabama)
So, Joshua Frazier was Alabama’s 12th player drafted this year. TWELFTH. That’s a record, in case you were wondering.
245. Jacksonville Jaguars — Logan Cooke (P, Mississippi State)
Punters are people too!
250. Cincinnati Bengals — Rod Taylor (OG, Ole Miss)
Rod Taylor, guard for Ole Miss, was the last draft pick from the SEC in the 2018 NFL Draft. Good for him, and best of luck to him and all the rest out there.
