0 of 10

    With the bulk of big name talent off the board, NFL teams will have to test their forecasting skills in Rounds 4-7.

    We have made it through the first three rounds of the draft. Some surprises, a handful of reaches, big trades and monumental steals. But the draft is reaching one of the most important elements—the time when teams reach deep into their scouting reports and try to find the hidden gems deep in the draft.

    A delicate balance of team needs and player rankings are needed to sort through all the mid-tier talent remaining. Who stands out? Who will best fit in to your style? Which players are going to be marked as steals in the years to come?
