Value can definitely be found in the late rounds. There are a handful of such players who I find particularly interesting this season for various reasons, and I would view them all as good options in the later rounds of the draft. None of them makes my top-80 rankings, but each player offers some potential for teams seeking late value.

Here's 20 of the more intriguing late-round prospects in this year's draft class.
