I would agree with reptile or croc. I don't think their theropod. @Troodon, what do you think?

These can be tough to ID without getting an in-hand 360 degree view.  The red-brownish one looks like a turtle vert, with that deep keel on the bottom edge.  I don't see much evidence for crocs.  Croc verts from the Lance/Hell Creek have ball and socket ends which none of these seem to have.  The smallest brown one could be a croc tail bone.  Once you get into the tail, they lose the ball and sockets.
