133. Houston Wranglers – Tommylee Lewis, WR, Northern Illinois

Corey’s Take: “A late riser in pre-draft camps and combines, I think Tommylee Lewis being only 5-foot-7 really scared some teams away, but with his speed I could at least see Houston putting him back as a return man.”

134. Omaha Express – Andy Jones, WR, Jacksonville

Corey’s Take: “These small-school guys often get passed over, but Andy was a guy I was targeting myself. I’m a bit frustrated Omaha nabbed him. He’s got nice size and plays faster than his 40 time. He know how to reach out and attack the ball in the air. Sure he’s a bit raw in his route-running, but he’s got some nice potential.”

135. Pittsburgh Forge – Antonio Morrison, ILB, Florida

Corey’s Take: “This is the beauty of the unpredictability of the SFL draft. With so many teams having to draft based around a tight salary cap the Forge, as an expansion team, have all of this cap space to work with and get one of the top inside linebackers in this draft. A two-time All-SEC player who was extremely productive. My only worry would have to be his knees that make him limited in coverage, and thus a two-down linebacker, but he’s a fighter capable of playing inside in a 3-4 or outside n a 4-3. I think they can mask his coverage deficiencies in a 3-4, which is what I’m imagining Pittsburgh running based on the personnel they have been acquiring.”

136. Birmingham Predators – Willie Beavers, OT, Western Michigan

Corey’s Take: “Another example of an expansion team able to get a guy with a higher price tag late in the draft. Willie will have to develop into a starter but he’s very, very athletic for his size and has some nice power. If Birmingham remains patience, maybe even using his rookie year like a redshirt year, I think that will give him the time he needs to develop before being thrust into a big role.”

137. Washington Wave – Matthias Farley, CB, Notre Dame

Corey’s Take: “Interesting pick. I think he can be a better pro than he was a college player. Notre Dame was so stacked at the position that Matthias was actually a backup in 2015. But, he did get some quality playing time and was a hard-hitter. I’d be worried about him out at cornerback because I think he’s much better as a strong safety, but while I’m a bit confused about the position designation when they called his name I think he can be a contributor on special teams immediately.”

138. Phoenix Scorpions (Nashville (Louisville)) – Tyler Marz, OT, Wisconsin

Corey’s Take: “If you’re good enough to be a three-year starter on the line at a program that churns out great offensive lineman year-after-year like Wisconsin, then I think you’re good enough to be a very good professional football player. Tyler Marz may not have all the measurables you want, but this is a guy who just knows how to block. He was Melvin Gordon’s lead blocker. He gave Joel Stave all the time in the world. Turn on the tape and you’ll see a really good football player. I think in Phoenix we have a great line, but give him a year and I think he can be fighting for a starting job. Maybe even sooner.”

139. Carolina Generals – Dan Vitale, FB/TE, Northwestern

Corey’s Take: “A versatile, H-Back type of hybrid fullback. Carolina has come into this offseason prioritizing adding guys who can help their offense that struggles so much. This is another player who can contribute on that side of the balls in a few different ways.”

140. New York Marauders – Charone Peake, WR, Clemson

Corey’s Take: “I have no clue how Charone Peake fell this far and it got to a point that maybe wide receiver isn’t what we need in New York right now, but his talent is too good to pass on. He was one of the top receivers in this draft in my opinion. He was one of the best receivers in the pre-draft events, and combines and workouts. He’s 6-foot-2 and runs a sub 4.4 40-yard dash. I can’t explain how or why this guy got passed on so many times, but I’m thrilled to get him this late in the draft. We have so many good receivers in New York right now. It’s incredible.”

141. Houston Wranglers (New Orleans) – Josh Perkins, TE, Washington

Corey’s Take: “Talk about an over-looked guy. He wasn’t invited to a combine but he had a nice pro day and I think Houston brought him in for quite a few workouts and must have really liked the guy. He was pretty productive for a tight end as a senior, though maybe you’d like to see more touchdowns than three. But he averaged 15 yards per catch at the position. He can get down field.”

142. Los Angeles Stars – Jared Norris, OLB, Utah

Corey’s Take: “Utah produces quality pass rushers and Jared Norris seems like the next one. He was the unquestioned leader of the Utes last year and while he’s not a tremendous athlete, he’s a tremendous fighter. He attacks relentlessly. Will that fully translate? Maybe, maybe not, but he’s got good instincts and that should help him at least become a nice depth guy.”

143. Phoenix Scorpions – Joel Heath, DT, Michigan State

Corey’s Take: “I like the transformation Joel Heath has made. He didn’t quite live up to expectations at Michigan State as a defensive end, so he put on some weight, and moved inside. To me that showed a love of the game because he was willing to do anything he could to get on the field more, including change positions and learn some new skills. He wasn’t the most productive guy, but he got better and better each week after the position change. He’s a grinder who I think is still improving at the position. He has upside. I’m interested to see what this guy does in camp.”

144. Minnesota Freeze – Alex Redmond, OG, UCLA

Corey’s Take: “He’s got solid athleticism but he’s small and lanky for the position. I don’t know if he has the frame to add more weight and power so he could get overwhelmed by some nose tackles. He’ll have to do everything he can to get stronger to stick around.”

145. Orlando Rockets (Charleston) – Denver Kirkland, OT, Arkansas

Corey’s Take: “He’s big, he’s experiences, he’s strong and he had good hands, but he has poor technique. I’ve never seen a player play with his head down as much as this guy. His hands might be good, but he misses because he doesn’t look where he’s punching. He’s not overly athletic either. His size and strength at least make him interesting. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Rockets try to mask his poor technique by bumping him inside as a power guard who plays more in a phone booth.”

(Side Note: for our resident youngster Logan, who has probably never seen a phone booth. It was a small little box, often 37×37 and 80 inches tall where you can go in, close the door and have a private conversation for just a few quarters. They used to be on street corners, often near bus stops, common in the pre-cell phone days. So by playing in a phone booth means inside a small direct area without guys able to run around and take wide angles.)

146. New York Marauders (Philadelphia) – Josh Hawkins, CB, East Carolina

Corey’s Take: “I first saw this guy in 2014 when he played against a local college I attend games for regularly. ECU won that game and the entire time I was like ‘stop throwing at this guy!’. I think he only allowed one catch the entire game. I watched him more and more after that and really like what I saw. He wasn’t a combine invite, but I certainly called him for some workouts in front of our staff and we all agreed that this guy has great potential to develop into a good cornerback on the outside, not just a slot corner. He ran an impressive 4.39 40-time and while he’s only 5-foot-10, he had a 40.5-inch vertical. Those are things that will help him compete with anybody on the outside.”

147. Carolina Generals (New York (Nashville)) – Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas

Corey’s Take: “He’s got a lot of experience running pro-style offenses, was a great leader at Arkansas, was accurate and can bullet the ball wherever he needs it. With that said, there is a reason he dropped this far. He’s a bit small and most played in an offense that relied on play-action. He doesn’t seem comfortable taking down-field throws and he didn’t always go through his progressions. You have to be fearless at quarterback. If he second-guesses his ability it could be bad.”

148. Michigan Stags – Riley Dixon, P, Syracuse

Corey’s Take: “Maybe it’s just my personal philosophy, but I kind it hard to defend giving a punter only a deal with guaranteed contract on a team with only 50 players and a $25 million cap, but Michigan knows how they want to run their team and Dixon is easily one of the best punters in this draft, maybe even the best. I had him at some territorial workous. He had nice hang time on his punts. He’s calm and doesn’t get rattled.”

149. San Antonio Marshals – Vontarrius Dora, DE/OLB, Louisiana Tech

Corey’s Take: “San Antonio has done another really good job picking out a guy who won’t need a guaranteed deal. He was productive as a three-year starter at Louisiana Tech and is pretty athletic. I see him as a situational guy, but in the seventh round I think that’s perfectly fine.”

150. Atlanta Firebirds – Luke Rhodes, ILB, William & Mary

Corey’s Take: “Being a fan of the CAA I’ve seen this guy play a lot and, I really wanted to try to get this guy in a later round but Atlanta beat me to him. He’s an outstanding athlete who has some really great straight-line speed. He’s big and hits hard. He changed games in college. I think he can be a contributor in the SFL. Maybe as a rookie and second-year guy he’ll be a tremendous special teams coverage guy getting down the field and laying big hits, but as he get experiences and gets stronger and plays a bit more controlled, he can be worked in as maybe a starting linebacker.”

151. Nashville Renegades (Columbus) – Channing Ward, DE, Mississippi

Corey’s Take: “Interesting player with upside but you always have to wonder why a guy didn’t start in college. However, he was productive for the limited time he played in college. I think he is a quality athlete but he often took some plays off and that, combined with him not starting probably took him off a lot of team’s boards.”

152. Charleston Dragons (Orlando (Dallas)) – Dillon Gordon, OG, LSU

Corey’s Take: “From tight end to offensive guard? That’s a pretty unusual transition but at least it means he can move. He was a good blocker at tight end and his mobility means he’ll be able to get out on sweeps. His lack of overall speed made the move to offensive line a must because while he could catch, he just wouldn’t get open. As a guard, though, it’s got to be a wait and see process. I’d be surprised if he sees the field for a year or two while he makes the transition.”

153. Seattle Orcas – Brad Craddock, K, Maryland

Corey’s Take: “The 2014 Lou Groza Award winner was the pride of Maryland football. Maybe a little sad for the state of that program last year, but it was obvious Chuck was going to take him for one of his teams. He’s one of these new breed of Aussie kickers but was great at hitting big kicks. Heck, I was considering him for one of my teams. He set records for most consecutive field goals at Maryland and the entier Big Ten conference. He hit them far, a Terp record 57 yarder one time. He has the highest season and field goal conversation are out of Maryland too. And for the record, this is a program who has produce some good kickers, like Nick Novak who is entering his 11th year in the NFL. Give the kicker some love.”

154. Louisville Cougars (Orlando) – Antwione Williams, OLB, Georgia Southern

Corey’s Take: “Great pickup for Louisville this late. He’s a big guy with great size and instincts. He plays the run lanes, not the ball carrier, so he’ll never get caught out of position. He’s close closing speed and acceleration. I see this guy competing for a starting spot for Louisville right away.”

Supplemental*: Columbus Explorers – James Cowser, OLB, Southern Utah

Corey’s Take: “Small school guy who really slipped through the cracks but he’ll fit perfectly in Columbus as an edge pass rusher. He was ridiculously productive at the FCS level and has a tremendous motor. He was the FCS Defensive Player of the Year. That there tells you something.

Best Pick of the Round:

Corey’s Take: “Am I allowed to brag about myself drafting Charone Peake? I guess I’ll go with Louisville getting Antwione Williams. I think he can be a starter for their defense right away and if you get that in the seventh round them you’re definitely doing something right.”

Most Questionable Pick of the Round:

Corey’s Take: “This round actually had a lot of good picks in it but I’ll have to say Channing Ward. The guy may be good, but he didn’t start at Ole Miss after being labeled a five-star recruit out of high school. To me, that is a worry and says something about the guy. His athleticism might be intriguing but clearly he hasn’t put it all together.”
