As the NFL Draft starts on Thursday, here’s a roundup of seven-round mock drafts and the spots draft experts see Sun Devils landing.

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report (4/23)

WR Brandon Aiyuk — Round 1, Pick 25, Minnesota Vikings

Miller writes:

“After grabbing a cornerback three spots earlier, the Vikings come back on the clock and can still draft an impact wide receiver in Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk.

The Vikings will miss Stefon Diggs’ ability to make plays after the catch. Aiyuk brings that and has the potential to be an even greater YAC weapon. He’s fast, agile and has the open-field vision to make a major impact with the ball in his hands.

Kirk Cousins would love the option to check it down to Aiyuk and still generate big plays thanks to his run-after-catch tools.”

RB Eno Benjamin — Round 6, Pick 195, New England Patriots

R.J. White, CBS Sports (4/23)

Aiyuk — Round 2, Pick 42, New York Jets

Benjamin — Round 5, Pick 155, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Cabral — Round 6, Pick 202, Jacksonville Jaguars

Jordan Reid, The Draft Network (4/22)

Aiyuk — Round 2, Pick 37, Los Angeles Chargers

Benjamin — Round 4, Pick 143, Atlanta Falcons

Cabral — Round 7, Pick 223, Jacksonville Jaguars

Carter Donnick, The Draft Network (4/22)

Aiyuk — Round 1, Pick 30, Green Bay Packers

Donnick writes:

“Green Bay was strongly connected to Brandon Aiyuk throughout the pre-draft process, and it’s no secret the Packers massively need of some wideout help. Aiyuk is a versatile playmaker who excels after the catch and provides Green Bay with something they truly haven’t had since Randall Cobb’s prime. Don’t be surprised if the Packers are aggressive and move up from this selection, potentially for Jefferson.”

Benjamin — Round 4, Pick 129, Baltimore Ravens

Benjamin Solak, The Draft Network (4/21)

Aiyuk — Round 1, Pick 30, Green Bay Packers

Solak writes:

“Brandon Aiyuk has long been rumored a first-round selection. Teams believe they can take his unique blend of wingspan and speed and turn it into a three-level threat. General manager Brian Gutekunst will be pleased with Aiyuk’s size and electric yards-after-catch ability as the Packers look to add receivers with more juice to Aaron Rodgers’ late-career push.”

Benjamin — Round 4, Pick 142, Washington Redskins

Dane Brugler, The Athletic (4/13)

Aiyuk — Round 2, Pick 37, Los Angeles Chargers

Benjamin — Round 4, Pick 138, Kansas City Chiefs

Cabral — Round 7, Pick 225, Baltimore Ravens

P Michael Turk — Round 7, Pick 239, Buffalo Bills
