The fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft begins today at noon Eastern, airing on both ESPN & the NFL Network. Among the former Notre Dame Fighting Irish players hoping to hear their names called in the next four rounds are Jarron Jones, Isaac Rochell, Cole Luke, James Onwualu, Tarean Folston, Avery Sebastian, Scott Daly and Chase Hounshell.

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has published a late round mock in advance of today’s selections. Miller believes Jarron Jones will be a fifth round pick of the Miami Dolphins, while Isaac Rochell will be taken in the sixth round by the Dallas Cowboys. All other Notre Dame players will be undrafted free agents or camp invites.

JARRON JONES

Before the draft, Jones was seen as anywhere from a third-round pick to an undrafted free agent. Most of the mock draft analysts had him going in the fifth round. The NFL teams most often associated with Jones are the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.

ISAAC ROCHELL

Rochell’s position in mock drafts was, frankly, all over the place. Four mock drafts had him going in the fourth round. Another four had the defensive end in the fifth round. A third set of four had him in the sixth round. Five mock draft analysts think he’ll be undrafted.
