Late Round Pro Bowl

So you don't think you can find a star in the late rounds? Well, he's a positional list of player who were drafted in the fourth round or later (or not at all) in the last 15 years and made at least one Pro Bowl. It's not a complete list. I went with multiple Pro Bowlers in cases where there were too many candidates. One thing that became clear was that you're not likely to get a Pro Bowl quarterback in the later rounds. Maybe that's why the Bills haven't jumped at any of the possible QBs. Evidently, they're not taking a guy unless they believe he can be a franchise guy. You tend to get those quarterbacks high in the draft.

Players are listed by position and team with the round drafted and the year. A "U" means they were undrafted. If I missed anyone, feel free to let me know. --- Jerry Sullivan

Bradham, Road to Draft

Here's a revisit of our Road to the Draft item on Bradham from a month ago.

Nigel Bradham, OLB, Florida State
6-foot-2, 241 pounds
Draft projection: Third round

Lowdown: Bradham was a three-year starter and led the Seminoles in tackles all three years. He was a team captain. He has long arms and shows the toughness to be a capable strong-side linebacker in the 4-3 defense. He did well at the Senior Bowl and at the NFL Scouting Combine, posting good marks in the 40-yard dash (4.64 seconds) and the vertical jump (37 inches). He played mostly weak-side backer for the Seminoles but saw time inside, too. How fluid he is in space and how well he’d hold up in coverage in the NFL is a bit of a question. But he’s durable and fearless, and he can shed blocks and make tackles. The Florida State defense was ranked fourth in the country, second against the run.
