1st rounder Christian Gonzalez going 17th surprised me, thought he'd go top 10.
2nd rounder Joey Porter, Jr. barely fell out of the1st round but still expected him to be gone.
3rd rounder Jalen Hyatt - I didn't love him as a 1st rounder, but 73rd overall was surprising.
4th rounder Kelee Ringo - Knew he was slipping, this seems low for how athletic he is. His technqiue needs work but Georgia DB's are battle tested.
5th rounder Darius Rush - So many Corners on my list. Thought he'd be a 2nd round guy.
6th rounder Jaelyn Duncan - He was getting a lot of Day 2 talk. NFL teams did not agree.
7th rounder Corey Trice - Hey look another Corner. He was getting Day 2 talk, especially with the Cowboys. Always thought he's a little stiff and should go around Round 4 or 5.
UDFA Andre Carter, Jr. - Heard a lot about him slipping but never expected him to go undrafted. He's extremely raw but he's also 6'7" with a 6'10" wingspan.

Jalin Hyatt was probably the most surprising to me.

I don't think many guys slipped all that surprisingly. There were some guys who went maybe 20 picks to a round later than projected, but that's not different than any other draft.

Andrew Vorhees.

I know he'll have to sit out a year becase of the injury but I thought for sure he'd be drafted before the 7th round.

Cory Trice falling so far surprised me, as did Darnell Washington. I thought Truce was a better version of Nahshon Wright, who we infamously drafted in round 3.

Now I’m hearing that Trice’s “medicals were a mess” and like Darnell Washington, that was why he fell so far.

Here's a UDFA that should have been drafted and will make a roster

Keaton Mitchell, RB, ECU
That one surprised me a bit too, but he's going to have a hard time ever getting on the field. I don't think Baltimore was the best place for him as far as getting any snaps though, they already have 3 running backs and always have Ricard active.

That said, it seems like htey're always hurt lol

Yes, it depends on what mix the Ravens want to keep. I assume Dobbins and Gus stick. They have kept 4 in the past, but if not it could be a fight between Mitchell and Hill
Otherwise, they try to keep him on PS and someone grabs him.
Always fun seeing how these guys pan out

That's a good choice. But I'm going to say Jalen Cropper, who had more yards than Zay Flowers. Not saying he's Zay Flowers but Croopper has a chance to be more than a ST, gadget player.

5th round - Atonio Mafi

Some of us were told on this board that he may go in the second. I just figured I must be out of the loop.

I’m sure he is still the favorite for rookie of the year though.
Last year, I wanted James Houston to pair with Parsons. He was the steal of last year's draft.

This year, for us, UDFA Miles Brooks could surprise.

Funny that the Lions cut him on getting to 53, managed to get him on their practice squad and then moved him up in November and he got 8 sacks in the last 7 games of the season.
