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.
