Let's get started with the Round 7 picks then.

NFL Draft 2021 Results: Final Picks 229 to 259 from Round 7

Pick: 229

Team: Indianapolis Colts

Position: WR

Selection: Mike Strachan

School: Charleston (MV)

Takeaway: Chris Ballard doesn't shy away from small-school, tooly athletes in the draft. Strachan is impressive, with dynamic ball skills, but will need more time before he sees in-game reps. He's a long-term project who could spend the next year or so on a practice squad.

Pick: 230

Team: Las Vegas Raiders

Position: C

Selection: Jimmy Morrissey

School: Pittsburgh

Takeaway: Morrissey is a four-year starter at center, consistent and should help his chances of landing a reserve job as a rookie.

Pick: 231

Team: Miami Dolphins

Position: OT

Selection: Larnel Coleman

School: Massachusetts

Takeaway: Coleman is a defensive lineman growing into his position at tackle as he prepares to face NFL competition.

Pick: 232

Team: Carolina Panthers

Position: DT

Selection: Phil Hoskins

School: Kentucky

Takeaway: Hoskins could suitably serve as a camp body with some upside to compete for a backup job because of his measurables and experience competing in the SEC.

Pick: 233

Team: Los Angeles Rams

Position: RB

Selection: Jake Funk

School: Maryland

Takeaway: Funk lacks college production and suffered multiple knee injuries that derailed his career. But his impressive athletic profile and big-play flashes on film make him worth a glance.

Pick: 234

Team: Philadelphia Eagles

Position: Edge

Selection: Patrick Johnson

School: Tulane

Takeaway: The Eagles continue to add figures to their defensive front, this time with Johnson, who had a productive career and an excellent pro-day.

Pick: 235

Team: Cincinnati Bengals

Position: DE

Selection: Wyatt Hubert

School: Kansas State

Takeaway: Another pass-rush specialist added to improve one of the worst pass-rush groups in the NFL. Hubert is more of a clean-up artist who could find it difficult to separate himself from the others in his position in camp. However, his power and quickness should stand him in good stead.

Pick: 236

Team: Buffalo Bills

Position: G

Selection: Jack Anderson

School: Texas Tech

Takeaway: Buffalo runs a decent amount of outside zone, where Anderson's strength lies. But his height and substantial limitations mean his roster chances are a longshot this year.

Pick: 237

Team: Denver Broncos

Position: CB

Selection: Kary Vincent Jr.

School: LSU

Takeaway: Vincent's deficiency in size and strength could make it an uphill slope to secure a roster spot with the Broncos

Pick: 238

Team: Dallas Cowboys

Position: G

Selection: Matt Farnick

School: Nebraska

Takeaway: The Cowboys added some late-round OL insurance that they'd assess in camp for a backup spot. Farniok has experience both inside and outside.

Pick: 239

Team: Denver Broncos

Position: DE

Selection: Jonathon Cooper

School: Ohio State

Takeaway: Cooper dealt with some injuries in college, but his production and playing enthusiasm on the field are worth giving him a chance. He is one of the more muscular characters in the 2021 NFL draft.

Pick: 240

Team: Washington Football Team

Position: DE

Selection: Will Bradley-King

School: Baylor

Takeaway: Ron Rivera values height in his edge defenders, and Bradley-King matches that profile. His chase effort and football character could bring him a chance at a rotational role.

Pick: 241

Team: Los Angeles Chargers

Position: SAF

Selection: Mark Webb

School: Georgia

Takeaway: A young defensive back, the former WR offers attractive developmental upside for a defense that values versatility. He can play in the slot and could affect special teams' coverage units.

Pick: 242

Team: New England Patriots

Position: WR

Selection: Tre Nixon

School: UCF

Takeaway: Nixon was a standout in the nation's most volatile passing attack. The Patriots are kicking the tires on a project that potentially supports their stretch defense.

Pick: 243

Team: Arizona Cardinals

Position: S

Selection: James Wiggins

School: Cincinnati

Takeaway: Wiggins is arguably the most athletic safety in the 2021 NFL draft, but constant injuries caused him to slide into the seventh round. He showed play-making skills in coverage when he was on the field and could end up as one of the better value picks.

Pick: 244

Team: Miami Dolphins

Position: RB

Selection: Gerrid Doaks

School: Cincinnati

Takeaway: Doaks adds genuine competition to the Dolphins' RB room with his blend of dimension and strength as a runner. He's not gaudy, but he is well-rounded and can stay on the field.

Pick: 245

Team: Pittsburgh Steelers

Position: CB

Selection: Tre Norwood

School: Oklahoma

Takeaway: Mike Tomlin valued Norwood's experience at corner and safety. He flashed impressive ball skills, but the inconsistencies in coverage and as a tackler could cause coaches to second guess in camp.

Pick: 246

Team: Washington Football Team

Position: Edge

Selection: Shaka Toney

School: Penn State

Takeaway: Toney is a solid value pick after having substantial numbers as a pass rusher and following that up with a fabulous pro day. He needs polish, but he is capable enough to be put in a practice squad and train him into a rotational edge rusher.

Pick: 247

Team: Arizona Cardinals

Position: C

Selection: Michal Menet

School: Penn State

Takeaway: As a center, Menet held his own against blue-chip competition for three years as a starter. His technical prowess could be enough to surmount physical deficiencies and enable him to battle for a starting job down the road.

Pick: 248

Team: Indianapolis Colts

Position: G

Selection: Will Fries

School: Penn State

Takeaway: In the final round, Chris Ballard obtained a guy who has started games across the offensive line; the Colts could be his best fit. He'll likely be a practice squad player.

Pick: 249

Team: Los Angeles Rams

Position: WR

Selection: Ben Skowronek

School: Notre Dame

Takeaway: Skowronek possesses toughness and size to compete at all levels of the field, but his athletic limitations may hinder coaches on how they deploy him.

Pick: 250

Team: Chicago Bears

Position: DT

Selection: Khyiris Tonga

School: Brigham Young

Takeaway: The Bears found a bulky gap occupier with an above-average scale for his size. The Bears' coaches are likely to give him a legitimate chance in competing for a roster spot in 2021.

Pick: 251

Team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Position: CB

Selection: Chris Wilcox

School: Brigham Young

Takeaway: Wilcox attracted attention with his pro-day testing. His coverage fluidity and composition are underwhelming, so he'll need to make some waves to stand out in special teams.

Pick: 252

Team: Los Angeles Rams

Position: Edge

Selection: Chris Garrett

School: Concordia-St. Paul

Takeaway: Garrett caught the Rams' attention with his college production. His scope and speed are worth taking a chance on, though.

Pick: 253

Team: Denver Broncos

Position: DE

Selection: Marquis Spencer

School: Mississippi State

Takeaway: Spencer is abrasive and relies on his size and strength to create separation, but he needs extensive technical development, problematic for a five-year senior. His attributes are worth assessing in camp as a potential stash guy.

Pick: 254

Team: Pittsburgh Steelers

Position: P

Selection: Pressley Harvin III

School: Georgia Tech

Takeaway: The 2020 Ray Guy Award winner is the chief candidate to take over the Steelers' punting services, a team that was ranked in the lower half of the NFL in punt average last season.

Pick: 255

Team: New Orleans Saints

Position: WR

Selection: Kawaan Baker

School: South Alabama

Takeaway: Baker is a large, unyielding receiver with above-average speed to battle against NFL defenders. However, he's fresh and will likely spend a few seasons in the practice squad.

Pick: 256

Team: Green Bay Packers

Position: RB

Selection: Kylin Hill

School: Mississippi State

Takeaway: Hill was a prolific back in the SEC before opting out for most of the 2020 season. His skills are better for his draft slot.

Pick: 257

Team: Detroit Lions

Position: RB

Selection: Jermar Jefferson

School: Oregon State

Takeaway: The Lions are likely to employ a heavy running-back committee, and Jefferson could add some good competition for the third RB spot. He has big-play potential to appeal to coaches during camp.

Pick: 258

Team: Washington Football Team

Position: WR

Selection: Dax Milne

School: Brigham Young

Takeaway: Washington have taken a gamble on Zach Wilson's favorite 2020 target. Milne isn't athletic, but he's a dependable player from the slot and could win coaches over with his persistence as a chain mover.

Pick: 259

Team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Position: LB

Selection: Grant Stuard

School: Houston

Takeaway: Mr. last place has a high shot in earning a roster spot as a rookie. He plays with great energy and has play speed and tenacity to excel in special teams' coverage units early in his career.
