Quick Thoughts: 4th Round Picks 118 – 127


118: Vikings select, Jarius Wright, WR, Arkansas.  Poor Greg Childs.  Bet he never thought he’d be the third receiver drafted from his team.  I don’t see where Wright fits in with the Vikings, unless they’re not sold on Percy Harvin’s ability to stay healthy.

120: James Michael-Johnson, MLB taken by the Browns.  Good pick.  Instinctive defensive signal-caller.  Lacks explosive sideline-to-sideline range, which caused him to drop.  Starting caliber ILB.

121: Keshawn Martin, WR, to the Texans.  Surprised he went before his Michigan St. teammate BJ Cunningham? Don’t be.  Martin is much more explosive.  Texans are acumulating some nice pieces to compliment Andre Johnson.

122: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin to the Saints.  Of course, you’re the Saints, you only have 5 picks, you take a WR right? Toon is nothing more than a #3 to me, and the Saints have plenty of those.

123: Eagles select Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia.  Outstanding value pick for the Eagles.  Boykin has explosive return skills and can cover well enough to play in the nickle right away.  Recovering from a broken leg suffered in Sr. Bowl practice, could have caused him to slip.

124: Bills take Ron Brooks, CB, LSU.  Was obviously the third CB for LSU so he’s under the radar, but there was a lot of buzz about how much teams love this guy.  Bills are having an interesting draft.

126: Jared Crick to the Texans.  LOVE this pick.  Hard-worker, relentless.  He was a beast next to Suh at Nebraska and was thought to be a 1st rounder until he had a disappointing and injury-filled Sr. year.  Short arms, but he can play DE and DT.

128: Rhett Ellison, TE/FB from USC to the Vikings.  One of my favorite players in this draft.  Can be a Chris Cooley type of TE or H-back.  Willing special teamer as well.
