As the finish line nears, teams look to solidify their special teams. Here come the kickers!

SB Nation 2014 NFL Draft

The seventh round may not appeal to the casual football fan, but it can sure be a sweet moment for the players who have their names called.

In the seventh round on Saturday, things got a little wild. With pick No. 226, the Rams selected offensive lineman Mitchell Van Dyk from Portland State. Then came Kiero Small at No. 227, a fullback from Arkansas. A couple of kickers got in the mix next as Zach Hocker of Arkansas and Nate Freese of Boston College went back-to-back. Among some of the other players taken midway through the seventh round: UMass tight end Rob Blanchflower and Marist defensive end Terrence Fede.

A Portland State wide receiver, a fullback, two kickers, and players from UMass and Marist. Just like the experts wrote it up! Here's a look at every player taken with picks 220-235.
