The 2017 NFL Draft is over and through seven rounds there were numerous prospects rated 2 or even unranked out of high school by Rivals.com. Here’s a quick look at the top 10 of those players drafted.

RELATED: Top 10 5-stars drafted | Four-stars | Three-stars

COREY DAVIS - No. 5 to the Titans

The skinny: With offers from only Western Michigan and Illinois State, Davis committed to the Broncos at the conclusion of his official visit in early January.

Farrell’s take: Academics were an issue with Davis, but that’s no excuse. He was a raw and skinny kid but had the talent to be at least a three-star. And based on his uncommittable offer from Notre Dame the summer before his senior year, a few BCS schools saw what we didn’t.

HAASON REDDICK, Temple - No. 13 to the Cardinals

The skinny: Reddick did not have any offers after finishing high school, so he walked-on at Temple. He did not have a Rivals.com profile.

Farrell’s take: Reddick played a handful of games during his junior and senior season, so he was not on the radar at all. He’s one of the best stories of the draft and Matt Rhule gets a lot of credit for making him the player he became and giving him a real chance to succeed.

CHARLES HARRIS - No. 22 to Miami

The skinny: Harris was a virtual unknown when he committed to Missouri a couple of days before National Signing Day. Focused on basketball until his junior season in high school, Harris definitely slid under the radar of most college coaches.

Farrell’s take: Harris emerged late in the process with impressive senior film, but that film got in our hands after the rankings became final. He’s a classic case of a kid who received a Power Five offer days before Signing Day and just got better and better.

RYAN RAMCZYK - No. 32 to the Saints

The skinny: Ramczyk was offered a scholarship by Pittsburgh, but he chose not to take it. He signed at Winona State, but did not enroll and instead attended Mid-State Technical College. Ramczyk then went to Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he played for two seasons before transferring to Wisconsin.

Farrell’s take: Winona State isn’t on our radar and we don’t rank welders, the profession Ramczyk almost chose, so I don’t feel bad about this one at all. His journey to the NFL’s first round is a rare one, indeed.

ISAIAH JONES - No. 37 to the Bills

The skinny: Jones only had offers from East Carolina and Arkansas State at the time of his commitment in August. Helping the Pirates was that his father, Robert Jones, is considered a football legend at the school

Farrell’s take: Now known as Zay Jones, he was a bit too slow for a higher ranking despite the bloodlines and that’s what held him back from better offers. His brother, Cayleb Jones, was much more well-known and was once a five-star for us.

FORREST LAMP - No. 38 to the Chargers

The skinny: Lamp took official visits to Western Kentucky, FIU, FAU and Ohio before committing to the Hilltoppers in early January. He did also take an official visit to Miami in early December, but the Canes never offered.

Farrell’s take: Lamp was a lightly recruited, skinny tackle out of high school who developed into a very good inside prospect at the next level. He looked more like a tight end physically in high school and despite excellent footwork, we had some questions about how he would fill out and handle the strength and power of college players.

GERALD EVERETT, South Alabama - No. 44 to the Rams

The skinny: Everett did not have a profile coming out of high school, but played at UAB until the program suddenly folded. He then made his way to Hutchinson C.C. in Kansas before eventually making his way to South Alabama.

Farrell’s take: Everett wasn’t on our radar like Reddick and Ramczyk because he didn’t even have a profile out of high school. He had a JUCO profile in 2015 after he had to re-boot his career when UAB folded and we still didn’t rank him. Our bad there.

ADAM SHAHEEN, Ashland - No. 45 to the Bears

The skinny: Shaheen was only 6-foot-4 and 195-pounds when he graduated high school and decided to play basketball at Pittsburgh-Johnstown. He eventually made his way to Division 2 Ashland in Ohio to play football, where he transformed his body to its current 6-foot-6, 278-pound frame.

Farrell’s take: A hoops prospect, he wasn’t anywhere near our radar and even if he was, as a D-2 level prospect we likely wouldn’t have ranked him anyhow. That’s the beauty of the small school kid making it big at the NFL Draft.

TANOH KPASSAGNON, Villanova - No. 59 to the Chiefs

The skinny: With Villanova being his only offer, Kpassagnon did not have a Rivals profile. His focus was more on academics during high school and he never attended any college or all-star camps, aside from Villanova’s.

Farrell’s take: An FCS-only prospect. Kpassagnon wasn’t anywhere near our radar and never got a chance to show his stuff at any camps.

DION DAWKINS - No. 63 to the Bills

The skinny: Dawkins spent the 2012 season at Hargrave Military Academy, before committing to Temple over offers from Cincinnati and Liberty.

Farrell’s take: We had two shots at Dawkins as a prep school kid and whiffed each time. Yes he was a two-star so at least he had a ranking, but he was clearly much better than his ranking and proved it to everyone.
