Round 7:

  • 2013: Brad Sorenson, Quarterback, Southern Utah
  • 2014: Tevin Reese, Wide Receiver, Baylor
  • 2015: n/a
  • 2016: Donavon Clark, Guard, Michigan State
  • 2017: Isaac Rochell, Defensive End, Notre Dame

MVP: Isaac Rochell. Flashed in moments, but no established role yet. One sack against the New York Jets.

LVP: Tevin Reese. Couldn’t catch in the preseason, and was cut before the regular season.

Why it’s ranked seventh:

As I said, I’m not solely ranking these rounds based on talent, but also value. Unfortunately, as it currently stands, the seventh round doesn’t appear to have much of either. Clark hasn’t played any regular season snaps, ending up on injured reserve for the second straight year. Rochell is the only one that could be considered for a role in the future, and Anthony Lynn reportedly admires his work ethic. He’s played 52 defensive snaps. Not much going on here, and that’s why it’s ranked as Telesco’s “worst” round thus far.
