Chad Reuter 2017 seven-round NFL mock draft: Round 7

There's a possibility Mitchell Trubisky gets the call here, but some in the building want to select the pass rusher from Texas A&M first and a quarterback later.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan would enjoy coaching the North Carolina QB, but don't be surprised if some team ( Jets? Browns?) explores a move up in a trade at this spot.

The Bears picked up Quintin Demps as their new strong safety, and add Ohio State's rangy free safety.

Blake Bortles needs a running game to take the pressure off; the LSU runner is the perfect answer.

The value this Stanford pass rusher provides is too great for the Titans to pass up.

The demise of Darrelle Revis leaves a big hole in the Jets' secondary; the Ohio State corner fills it nicely.

Like he was at LSU, Adams will be a defensive leader for the Chargers for years to come.

An ultra-versatile offensive threat at Stanford, McCaffrey can help Cam Newton's cause.

Arthritic shoulders and average athleticism testing could push the Alabama lineman down boards a bit. The Bengals might see another Geno Atkins.

The Bills replace Stephon Gilmore with another rangy cover man, making Conley the third defensive back from Ohio State in the top 10.

Finding a pass rusher is a major priority for the Saints, and the Tennessee defender's relentless nature should endear him to the fans in New Orleans.

Cleveland selects Alabama's athletic tight end and the top pass-catcher in the draft.

Larry Fitzgerald is on his way to retirement, and the physical dominance Williams displayed at Clemson complements Arizona's speedy receivers.

Carson Wentz will be happy to see a vertical threat like Washington's Ross in the fold.

New GM Chris Ballard continues to rebuild the offensive line in front of Andrew Luck. Dawkins was a great tackle at Temple and could start there at the next level, but he'll be a special guard in the NFL.

If Buffalo takes this physically dominant tackle from Alabama at 10, then Ozzie Newsome will find another bargain here.

The Temple pass rusher was one of the top risers throughout the postseason draft process; he can line up outside or inside for Washington.

Davis' inability to work out for teams this offseason could hurt him, but the Titans will gladly add the Western Michigan receiver to their roster.

Cook and the Buccaneers seem like a nice fit, and it reunites Jameis Winston with his former Florida State teammate.

There's a new left tackle from Wisconsin in the not-so-sleepy Western town.

Questions about Foster's maturity and shoulder could cause the Alabama linebacker to drop down boards. Detroit should be willing to take a chance on his talent at this spot.

The Dolphins are moving last year's first-rounder, Laremy Tunsil, to left tackle, making room for the Western Kentucky swing-man at guard.

The Miami tight end's promise as a playmaker on offense makes Eli Manning smile.

The Raiders like height and length in their corners, and the corner from Washington presents both.

I don't expect Mahomes to still be waiting around at this pick, as someone could trade ahead of Houston to secure his services. But the Texans wouldn't mind seeing this strong-armed passer from Texas Tech here. If Mahomes is gone, N.C. State safety Josh Jones would be a great fit.

Seattle takes a chance on the Michigan State defender's talent and scheme versatility.

Alex Smith has a significant cap hit in 2018, and is a free agent the following spring. The Clemson QB should be able to take control of the offense after a year or two.

The Florida corner has the height, length and agility to start for the Cowboys on Day 1.

Green Bay will have a tough choice between Watt and Jabrill Peppers. The Wisconsin pass rusher might win out if the Packers think they can mine secondary talent later in a deep draft.

The aggressive, strong defender from N.C. State will make a difference on Sundays.

The second half of the Super Bowl showed the Falcons' need for a strong, consistent pass rusher like this K-State defensive end.

This Florida Gator brings athleticism and toughness to the middle of the Saints' defense.
