Biggest steals of the NFL Draft?

Charles Omenihu dropped to the 5 round. He’s a good all round player and run stopper.

He's really looked good in limited snaps, and will get a lot more work with JJ Watt out for the year. He won't be Watt, but he'll be a solid part of an improving front.

David Edwards for the Rams. He was a tackle at Wisconsin. Drafted in the 5th round even though some sites had him going in the first in very early mocks. 

Our entire OL play has improved ever since he came in to play over Jamil Demby

Dilliard was my top OL in the draft, by far. He can definitely be considered a steal. His pass protection is unreal. 

just handled two top 5 defenses with no issues as a spot starter for a hall of famer. Kid is going to be a good one.

Yeah considering where we got him, huge steal. Has looked pretty damn good.
And he will get better and better as he adds strength and adds to his base.

Dont get what teams were thinking.
'Oh no he does the hard thing really well but we don't know if he can do the easy one....however could we add him?!?'

Ryan Connelly, 5th round rookie LB out of Wisconsin, was a frontrunner for DROY before he went down for the year with a torn ACL. Giants may have actually found a LB.

Our entire class either hasn't played or has played underwhelming. But it's what you expect with two scouts on your staff.

This dude was mocked a lot in the 1st-2nd round. Not sure why he fell to far.

The only rookie playing noticeably well was UDFA WR Preston Williams. I guess Christian Wilkins has had his good and bad moments, but he's a 3-4 DE, so not in a great position to jump out on film. He had a nice sack last game, and seems to be improving (with the rest of the team) as the season progresses.

Cole Holcomb for the Redskins - 5th rounder out of UNC. Been a very solid surprise.

Dolphins have won every single game where rookie Wilkins had a sack.

Mack Wilson - He was the player I was most fired up about in this draft, and he has looked very comfortable in the role as a starter. Has gotten a lot better vs the run and will be one of the best coverage linebackers in the league for years to come

Justin Skule for the 49ers. 6th round rookie tackle who has done a terrific job filling in for Joe Staley. It seemed a lot of fans were worried about him coming in, because he didn't look very good in preseason. However, he's performed better than anyone could have expected.

I liked Edwards a lot (I have a bias towards Wisconsin OL, but I digress) and I'm not surprised he picked up and produced immediately. I think his ceiling isn't great, but he's got a solid floor to work with, he's got starter capability.
