3 of 7


65. player. 53. The Cleveland Browns continue an excellent draft by taking the quick Ogunjobi, who will have to learn quickly to get on the field but he can be en explosive interior rusher to go along with Myles Garrett on that new defensive front.. Larry Ogunjobi, DL. Charlotte. Cleveland Browns

San Francisco 49ers. 66. player. 42. The 49ers continue a very solid draft and take the big, long, athletic defender out of Colorado who will compete immediately for a starting job. Witherspoon has ball skills and unreal measurables athletically.. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB. Colorado

15. The Saints traded a future 2nd round selection and a 7th round pick for this pick. With the 67th pick, the Saints selected Alvin Kamara, a big time playmaker who some had graded as a first round player. Giving up a second round pick in next year’s draft is a hefty price to pay, especially after just signing Adrian Peterson. It’ll be interesting to see how this ends up working out for both Kamara and the Saints.. Alvin Kamara, RB. Tennessee. New Orleans Saints. 67. player

52. Smoot is an interesting fit for the Jaguars. He can play opposite of Dante Fowler and should slide next to Malik Jackson, nicely. In 2016, Smoot had five sacks but had 15 tackles for loss. He has the ability to get after the quarterback but after he engages, he stops his feet and shuts down. He’s an intriguing pick with some upside.. Dawuane Smoot, DE. Illinois . Jacksonville Jaguars. 68. player

player. 51. Adding more weapons for Jared Goff is in the plans for the Rams. Cooper Kupp holds the NCAA record for receiving yards with 6,464 yards and looks like he can become a possession guy for them. He’s got soft hands and can play at any receiver spot.. Cooper Kupp, WR. Eastern Washington . Los Angeles Rams. 69

Ohio State. Minnesota Vikings. 70. player. 60. **Vikings receive 70th overall pick**<br /> ** Jets receive 2017 third-round pick (No. 79) and 2017 fifth-round pick (No. 160)** <p>Versatile interior offensive lineman who does a great job in the open field. He can down block, pull and hold his own in pass blocking situations. He’s a smart player and can be a productive player for the Vikings. Dalvin Cook shouldn’t have any trouble running behind him and their newly formed offensive line.</p>. Pat Elflein, C

Los Angeles Chargers. 71. player. 13. The Chargers took Forrest Lamp in the second round and now get another one with Dan Feeney. He’s a versatile offensive iceman who can play anywhere on the line of scrimmage. He does well when attacking the second level and is an adequate pass blocker.. Dan Feeney, G. Indiana

35. **Titans receive 72nd overall and 200th overall (6th round)**<br /> **Patriots receive 83rd overall and 124th overall (4th round)** <p>Obtaining weapons for Marcus Mariota is top priority for the Titans. Taylor had 17 touchdowns in 2016 and can lineup all over the field. He’ll be most productive in the slot but should be a great compliment next to Corey Davis. </p>. Taywan Taylor, WR. Western Kentucky . Tennessee Titans. 72. player

56. At some point in this draft, the Bengals were going to look for a defensive end. Michael Johnson is far from the player used to be and Jordan Willis could become his replacement. Willis has a powerful punch off the line and has above average athletic ability. He plays stiff and needs to improve his pursuit to the football. The pairing of Dunlap and Willis should pay off for the Bengals.. Jordan Willis, DE. Kansas State . Cincinnati Bengals. 73. player

74. player. 26. Right now, this is the steal of the third round. Chris Wormley had 9 tackles for loss and 6 sacks on the year for 2016. He’s the perfect fit for a five-technique and plays with a lot of aggression. He plays high at times and lacks ideal lateral quickness but he fires into the gap well. I love his hand usage and love this pick for the Ravens.. Chris Wormley, DE. Michigan . Baltimore Ravens

44. It should never surprise you when Dan Quinn drafts a defensive player. Duke Riley is consistent in coverage and has tremendous upside when running downhill. He lacks the ideal size for the position but can be utilized in blitz packages for the Falcons.. Duke Riley, LB. LSU . Atlanta Falcons. 75. player

76. player. 15. Had Anzalone not had a long list of injuries, he would have gone in the second round. He’s an athletic player and fills the gap at will. He’ll defiantly be a blitz package linebacker but he does a good job in space as a coverage linebacker. The Saints have needed a linebacker for years and this should be one that pays off, if healthy.. Alex Anzalone, LB. Florida. New Orleans Saints

Daeshon Hall, DE. Texas A&amp;M. Carolina Panthers. 77. player. 87. **Panthers receive 77th overall pick**<br /> **Cardinals receive 2017 third-round pick (No. 98) & 2017 fourth-round pick (No. 115)** <p>The Carolina Panthers move up in the third round to grab their pass rusher. They’ve spent their first three picks on offense and now they focus on defense. Hall played opposite of Myles Garrett and he might have been more productive, had Garrett not taken it all. Hall is a value pick who will sit behind Julius Peppers and Charles Johnson for the next year.</p>

26. Here’s an electric pass rusher who has a rare blend of speed and power. Williams has some off the field concerns but he’s the perfect fit as a stand-up edge rusher. The Ravens have made their focal point in this draft to take pass rushers.. Tim Williams, LB. Alabama . Baltimore Ravens. 78. player

60. **Vikings receive 70th overall pick**<br /> ** Jets receive 2017 third-round pick (No. 79) and 2017 fifth-round pick (No. 160)**. ArDarius Stewart, WR. Alabama . New York Jets. 79. player

Absolutely love this pick for the Colts. This is a defensive end who has the tools you look for in a first round pick. He has great upside and just needs to add another move or two into his pass rushing arsenal. Whatever he does, he’ll continue to hit the quarterback.. Tarell Basham, DE. Ohio. Indianapolis Colts. 80. player. 46

L.A. Tech . Denver Broncos. 82. player. 45. Incredibly productive slot receiver for the Broncos. Carlos Henderson is a shifty player and reminds me of Randall Cobb. In 2016, he had 19 touchdowns and should be the perfect addition to Emmanuel Sanders and Demariyus Sanders.. Carlos Henderson, WR

Derek Rivers, DE. Youngstown State . New England Patriots. 83. player. 47. **Titans receive 72nd overall and 200th overall (6th round)**<br /> **Patriots receive 83rd overall and 124th overall (4th round)** <p>Of course…the Patriots gets a defensive end with tremendous upside. Remember how they got rid of Chandler Jones? Say hello to his replacement. Rivers has 37.5 career sacks and is an athletically gifted player. He’ll become a stand-up edge rusher for them and should see years of success. </p>

84. player. 48. We. Believe. In. Jameis. The Buccaneers now have Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard and now Chris Godwin. He had his breakout game against USC but he had a solid season for the Nittany Lions. He’s a physical receiver who has the speed to beat you vertically and has the route running to be a possession machine.. Chris Godwin, WR. Penn State . Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Antonio Garcia, OT. Troy . New England Patriots. 85. player. 47. **Lions receive picks 96th overall & 124th overall**<br /> ** Patriots receive 85th overall pick** <p>There’s no question about Garcia and his length at 6’6″ but he’s always had weight issues. Right now he’s listed at 302 pounds but has struggled staying above it. At Troy, Garcia started 42 games at left tackle and is expected to compete with Nate Solder at left tackle. </p>

124. **Chiefs receive 86th overall pick<br /> Vikings receive 4th round and 7th round picks.** <p>Jump cut running back who displays solid balance and vision when searching for a running lane. He can become a change of pace back and has the ability to become a pass catcher out of the backfield, as well.</p>. Kareem Hunt, RB. Toledo. Kansas City Chiefs. 86. player

31. The Giants have an aging quarterback in Eli Manning and there’s no way that Geno Smith can be viewed as his replacement. Davis Webb is on the board for the Giants and he’ll take his natural throwing motion to the Big Apple. He needs to improve his overall ball placement but in a few years, this could be the starting quarterback of the G-Men. Davis Webb, QB. Cal. New York Giants. 87. player

UCLA . Oakland Raiders. 88. player. 28. After cutting Dan Williams, the Oakland Raiders became extremely thin at defensive tackle. Vanderdoes only has 13.5 tackles for loss in his career but he’s a fit for what they’re looking to accomplish on defense. The Raiders have gone heavy on defense and Vanderdoes could be a contributor in stopping the run.. Eddie Vanderdoes, DT

10. Having Lamar Miller as their running back, the Texans lack a power back. D’Onta Foreman is a thick, bruising style back who should be a fit in all short yardage and goal line situations. Foreman was one of the most productive backs in college last year. He isn’t all power and no wiggle, though. He’s got quick feet and has the upside to be a starter.. D'Onta Foreman, RB. Texas . Houston Texans. 89. player

Quick footed cornerback who has the athletic ability to play outside or inside. He’s aggressive when dropping into coverage but can also help in run support. He’ll be a great addition to the aging, Legion of Boom.. Shaquill Griffin, CB. UCF . Seattle Seahawks. 90. player. 36

Boston College. Los Angeles Rams. 91. player. 51. **Buffalo receives 37th overall pick and 149th overall pick (5th round)**<br /> **Los Angeles Rams receives 44th overall pick and 91st overall pick (3rd round)** <p>After focusing on the offensive side of the football, the Rams finally make a pick directed to their defense. Finding some help along their secondary was crucial and getting a player like John Johnson. He flashes his range and is a versatile defensive back. He’s played at both cornerback and safety but should transition to safety for the Rams.</p>. John Johnson, S

123. One of the most productive receivers in college. He was a shutdown cornerback for Michigan but he has some serious off the field concerns. He has a domestic violence case that is still in process. On the field, Lewis can come up and help in run support and is a great press corner.. Jourdan Lewis, CB. Michigan . Dallas Cowboys. 92. player

49. One of the most underrated defensive lineman in the draft is Montravius Adams. He has great lateral quickness and has natural pass rushing ability. He’s got some inconsistencies but was a productive player at Auburn. Putting him on a thin defensive front, the Green Bay Packers have a sleeper talent at nose tackle.. Montravius Adams, DT. Auburn . Green Bay Packers. 93. player

Pittsburgh Steelers. 94. player. 55. Versatile cornerback who does a great job in coverage. He has some injury concerns but he can come up and deliver some big time hits. He has good ball skills and had 30 pass deflections with seven interceptions in his career. This is a Pittsburgh Steelers type of pick and should have a smooth transition into coverage for a team that needs it.. Cameron Sutton, CB. Tennessee

Seattle Seahawks. 95. player. 36. Strong downhill runner out of Michigan and consistent ball skills. Hill doesn’t flash the range you see out of a starting safety but he’s got a lot of upside with his coverage skills and tackling ability.. Delano Hill, S . Michigan

Detroit Lions. 96. player. 50. **Lions receive picks 96th overall & 124th overall**<br /> ** Patriots receive 85th overall pick** <p>There’s a lot to like about this pick for the Detroit Lions. Golladay has a 6’4″ frame and has 18 career touchdowns. He ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.5 seconds at the Combine. He has the tools to be a productive receiver at the next level. He needs to work on his route running but there’s a lot to like about this pick because of his size and who he has throwing him the football, Matthew Stafford. </p>. Kenny Golladay, WR. Northern Illinois

59. Really surprised that Tankesley fell this far. He’s got great man coverage ability and has solid tackling ability for a cornerback. He has great length at 6’1″ and was one of the key contributors to the success on defense for the Clemson Tigers.. Cordrea Tankersley, CB. Clemson . Miami Dolphins. 97. player

Grambling . Arizona Cardinals. 98. player. 32. **Panthers receive 77th overall pick**<br /> **Cardinals receive 2017 third-round pick (No. 98) & 2017 fourth-round pick (No. 115)** <p>The Cardinals snag a downfield threat at wide receiver. Williams had 90 catches this past season and can create separation for any offense. He can score and should learn from one of the best, Larry Fitzgerald. </p>. Chad Williams, WR

West Virginia . Philadelphia Eagles. 99. player. 54. This is a solid pick for the Eagles as they continue to address their need at cornerback. Douglas has great length at 6’2″ and was productive player at West Virginia. He really good ball skills with 8 interceptions this past season. He closes well and has unlimited ability in any coverage scheme.. Rasul Douglas, CB

FIU. Tennessee Titans. 100. player. 35. Finding weapons for Marcus Mariota continues with this pick. Smith was productive at FIU with 178 receptions, 2001 yards and 18 touchdowns. He’s a vertical threat as a receiver and should be a consistent weapon of the future for Tennessee.. Jonnu Smith, TE

101. player. 45. Langley was a former player for the Georgia Bulldogs. He plays well off the ball and has good ball skills. He had six interceptions in 2016 and will need another year to develop. He’s should help on special teams and can develop his coverage skills in that talented secondary.. Brendan Langley, CB. Lamar . Denver Broncos

Fresh off 70 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss, Nazair Jones is a productive defensive tackle. He lacks ideal pass rush ability but does a great job in stopping the run. Jones uses his hands well and can become a developing player for the Seahawks.. Nazair Jones, DT. North Carolina . Seattle Seahawks. 102. player. 36

Throughout his career at FAU, Hendrickson had 29.5 sacks. In 2016, he also had 4 blocked kicks. This will be the Saints edge rusher for this draft and he’s got tremendous upside. He dips his shoulder off the edge and works his hands outside-in. Pairing him with Cameron Jordan should help take the pressure off him at the next level.. Trey Hendrickson, DE. Florida Atlantic . New Orleans Saints. 103. player. 15

C.J. Beathard, QB. Iowa. San Francisco 49ers. 104. player. 42. **49ers receive 104th overall pick**<br /> **Vikings receive 109th overall pick and 219th overall pick** <p>Throughout his career, Beathard had 5,562 passing yards, 40 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He had six fourth quarter comebacks and had won 21 games over his career at Iowa. He lacks elite arm strength but can make all the immediate throws. He’ll need time to develop and shouldn’t be viewed as the long term answer for the 49ers.</p>

55. There is no better draft story than James Conner. He over cancer, went back to Pittsburgh and was still dominant. He had 26 rushing touchdowns in 2014 and rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2016. He’s a strong runner who has great field vision and is physical with anyone that tries to tackle him. Whether he creates the extra yardage himself or just falls forward for it. This is a great compliment to Le’Veon Bell.. James Conner, RB. Pittsburgh . Pittsburgh Steelers. 105. player

Seattle Seahawks. 106. player. 36. Seattle already had strong contributors at receiver but Darboh could become the difference maker. He tested well at the combine and has the ability to run any route. From his strong hands to precise route running, Darboh could become the “go-to” guy for the Seahawks.. Amara Darboh, WR. Michigan

After putting so much focus on offense, the Bucs finally put some attention towards their defense. Beckwith wouldn’t have been here had he not gotten injured last year. He attacks well and has a great burst when attacking the gap. There aren’t any size limitations with this pick but there will be some questions regarding how much production the Bucs can get with it.. Kendell Beckwith, LB. LSU. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 107. player. 48
