2018 NFL Draft Guide: 6th & 7th Round NFL Draft Impact
Dom Murtha breaks down the players taken in the sixth and seventh rounds of the NFL Draft and let's you know who to keep tabs on for the 2018 fantasy football season.
When it comes to late round fantasy studs, you know the names: Tom Brady , Antonio Brown , Alfred Morris , Pierre Garcon , Marques Colston, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, etc. While these guys are almost immediately rattled off when your buddy tells you he doesn’t feel like watching the last couple of rounds on Saturday of draft weekend, the reality is that far more often than not, sixth and seventh rounders are duds rather than studs.
To help you find the gems, outlined in detail below is every skill position player (QB, RB, WR, TE) taken in the sixth and seventh rounds this past April. All 27 players will be separated into three different categories – 6th/7th Round Rookies to Draft, 6th/7th Round Rookies to Avoid, and 6th/7th Round Waivers to Watch.
