Okay, being honest, at this point in the Draft there really aren’t many “risks”. These rounds really are just a lottery ticket. There are some great prospects that will come out of these rounds, but the majority won’t have major careers in the NFL. Although, to stay with our article, we will still list the biggest “risk”. Take these ones with a grain of salt.

Round 6: Damion Ratley, WR, Cleveland Browns (175th overall)
Ratley is a project who needs did not have much production in college. He had only 47 catches in three years. The receivers that most often succeed right out of college are polished route runners who can create separation (recently Stefon Diggs, Odell Beckham, Juju Smith-Schuster, etc.). Ratley doesn’t fit that mold. The Browns could have possibly missed on a sixth round gem (ex: division rival Antonio Brown), and took a risk with the unpolished Ratley.
Runner Up: Kieshawn Bierria, ILB, Denver Broncos (217th overall)
