2014 NFL Mock Draft: Latest Predictions for Rounds 4-7
USA TODAY Sports

Any team can stumble into a Pro Bowler in the first round of the NFL draft. The teams that experience the most success are the ones who can find valuable picks on the third and final day of the draft. 

Yes, most of the big-name stars of the college game are long gone by the time teams step to the podium in the fourth round. But names such as Richard Sherman, who was a fifth-round pick, can wind up being an integral part of a Super Bowl-winning franchise. 

Here's a look at how the final rounds could play out (based on this mock that I wrote for Rounds 2 and 3).

Round 4 Mock Draft
Pick Team Player Position School
101. Texans Loucheiz Purifoy CB Florida
102. Redskins Ed Reynolds S Stanford
103. Falcons Kelcy Quarles DT South Carolina
104. Jets (from TB) Trevor Reilly DE/OLB Utah
105. Jaguars Victor Hampton CB South Carolina
106. Browns Yawin Smallwood ILB Connecticut
107. Raiders Anthony Johnson DT LSU
108. Seahawks* Jackson Jeffcoat DE/OLB Texas
109. Bills Chris Smith DE Arkansas
110. Rams AJ McCarron QB Alabama
111. Lions Christian Kirksey OLB Iowa
112. Titans Lache Seastrunk RB Oregon
113. Giants E.J. Gaines CB Missouri
114. Jaguars (from BAL) Ka'Deem Carey RB Arizona
115. Jets Robert Herron WR Wyoming
116. Dolphins Terrance Mitchell CB Oregon
117. Bears Jordan Zumwalt LB UCLA
118. Steelers Josh Huff WR Oregon
119. Cowboys Craig Loston S LSU
120. Cardinals Jared Abbrederis WR Wisconsin
121. Packers Daniel McCullers NT Tennessee
122. Eagles Mike Davis WR Texas
123. Bengals Terrance West RB Towson
124. Chiefs Anthony Steen OG Alabama
125. Chargers Bruce Ellington WR South Carolina

129. 49ers Charles Sims RB West Virginia
130. Patriots Josh Mauro DE Stanford
131. Broncos Christian Jones LB Florida State
132. Seahawks Brandon Thomas OG Clemson
133. Lions Rashaad Reynolds CB Oregon State
134. Ravens Ahmad Dixon S Baylor
135. Texans Ryan Grant WR Tulane
136. Lions Jordan Tripp LB Montana
137. Jets Aaron Murray QB Georgia
138. Ravens Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
139. Falcons Dion Bailey S USC
140. Patriots James Hurst OT North Carolina

Sleeper Watch: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB

If Jackson Jeffcoat makes it all the way to the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth round, the rest of the league had better watch out. The senior defensive end has always been extremely talented, but as Bleacher Report's Matt Miller points out, it's tough to evaluate him because he's constantly dealt with injuries. 

The good news about going to a place such as Seattle as late as the fourth round is that it will give Jeffcoat time to learn the pro game while resting his body. After years of needing to be "the man" who can get to the quarterback, Jeffcoat will simply be an understudy in one of the best defensive lines in the league. 

Once the Seahawks are forced to part ways with the current line, they will have Jeffcoat waiting in the wings to produce like a star. 

Round 5 Mock Draft
Pick Team Player Position School
141. Texans Andre Williams RB Boston College
142. Redskins Chris Davis CB Auburn

146. Seahawks (from OAK) Chris Watt OG Notre Dame
147. Falcons Bryan Stork OC Florida State
148. Vikings Prince Shembo OLB Notre Dame
149. Bills Nevin Lawson CB Utah State
150. Jaguars (from DET) Deion Belue CB Alabama
151. Titans Antone Exum CB Virginia Tech
152. Giants Charles Leno Jr. OT Boise State
153. Rams Devin Street WR Pitt
154. Jets Justin Ellis NT Louisiana Tech
155. Dolphins James Wilder Jr. RB Florida State
156. Bears James White RB Wisconsin
157. Steelers Michael Schofield OT Michigan
158. Cowboys Morgan Breslin OLB USC

168. Panthers Ronald Powell OLB Florida
169. Saints (from NE via PHI) Ed Stinson DE Alabama
170. 49ers Preston Brown ILB Louisville
171. Broncos Seantrel Henderson OT Miami (FL)
172. Seahawks Joe Jon Duncan TE Dixie State
173. Steelers Vinnie Sunseri S Alabama
174. Giants Ricardo Allen CB Purdue
175. Ravens Ryan Carrethers DT Arkansas State
176. Packers Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley State

Sleeper Watch: Brandon Coleman, WR

Any time you have receivers going in the fifth round, they are far from a sure thing, but Brandon Coleman has tremendous potential. At 6'5", 225 pounds, Coleman has the prototypical build to be a deadly receiver in the end zone. 

Pairing him up with newly acquired quarterback prospect Blake Bortles, who also has a game that must grow into his build, could be the connection the Jaguars need to ignite their offense.  

Ryan Riddle of Bleacher Report compares Coleman to a receiver who went much earlier in the draft.

Round 7 begins at pick 216

Sleeper Alert: DeAnthony Thomas and Tevin Reese

Michael Conroy/Associated Press

Coming in as the final sleepers in the last two rounds are two players who were extremely dangerous in the college game, DeAnthony Thomas and Tevin Reese. The problem, of course, is that their blazing speed is overshadowed by their slight frames. 

DeAnthony Thomas weighs in at just 174 pounds, but he has the elusiveness to make sure that defenders will rarely get a clean hit on him. 

That ability to suddenly change direction makes him comparable to a poor man's Darren Sproles. That's a lot of value for someone in the sixth or seventh round. 

Reese isn't quite the change-of-direction athlete Thomas is, but his 4.46 speed makes him a viable deep threat. At just 163 pounds, he'll need to add bulk to his frame, but he could make an impact as an over- the-top kind of receiver.
