Charleston Rambo, WR, Miami

Charleston Rambo had a breakout season for the Miami Hurricanes after transferring over from Oklahoma. Rambo brought in 79 receptions for 1172 yards, and has a build that meshes well with the current stable of wide receivers on the roster. The long-armed Miami Hurricane isn’t the fastest guy in the world, but his route running should allow him to occasionally get open. That’s about all you can ask for from a seventh rounder.

Faion Hicks, CB, Wisconsin

Hicks is an under-the-radar day-three cornerback. He caught the attention of scouts after a standout performance at the Wisconsin Pro-Day. Hicks posted phenomenal results in the 40-yard dash (4.37 seconds), three-cone drill (6.78 seconds), and vertical jump (37.5 inches). The athletic specimen still has a ways to go in terms of refining the technical aspects of his game, but the traits are worth taking a flier on this late in the draft.

Bamidele Olaseni, OL, Utah

Bamidele Olaseni has potential to be a diamond in the rough. He is a massive human being, and would form one of the biggest tackle combos with Orlando Brown Jr. if he is developed slowly. Olaseni played primarily at left tackle in college, but I see him projecting more as competition at right tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs. He has a lot to work on, but there are some starter qualities in his game.

Smoke Monday, Safety, Auburn

Smoke Monday has the best name in the 2022 NFL Draft, but he is a solid player as well. He is unlikely to ever be a full-time starter at safety, but the experience and versatility makes Monday one of the best utility players available on day three. He’s the type of guy you’d love to have as a third or fourth safety on the depth chart.

Tyrion Davis-Price, RB, LSU

The Chiefs already have a former LSU running back on the roster in 2020 first-round pick, Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Another former Tiger with a hyphenated name is one to watch out for. Tyrion Davis-Price averaged 4.8 yards per carry, and even with the addition of Ronald Jones, running backs could go down at any moment in the NFL. Davis-Price profiles as a practice squad player that can eventually become a backup in the league.
