Round 3

1(65) CB Jamell Fleming – Oklahoma

Defensive backfield is in need of immediate upgrades. Fleming would be a solid choice to start of rd 3.

2(66) OT Matt McCants – UAB

Upgrades are needed all over the Rams offensive line. McCants would be a solid swing tackle, or allow the Rams to slide Jason Smith to Guard.

3(67) S Markelle Martin – Oklahoma St.

Safety is a weak spot for the Viking defense, and Martin is an underrated prospect who could help from day 1. 

4(68) OLB Lavonte David – Nebraska

Browns needs talent and athleticism in their LB corps. David provides both here in round 3.  

5(69) OLB Zach Brown – North Carolina

You would think that Tampa would jump all over the chance to draft someone with speed and playmaking ability for their defense at the top of round 3. 

6(70) ILB James Michael-Johnson – Nevada

JMJ can be the heir apparent to to London Fletcher, and adds depth to a solid LB corps. 

7(71) C Phillip Blake – Baylor

Blake can be the future at center for Jacksonville since Brad Meester is entering the last year on his contract. 

8(72) OLB Ronnell Lewis – Oklahoma

The Bills need to find the pieces to fit their transition to the 4-3. At this point Morrison and Burnett are serviceable, but offer no long term security. 

9(73) WR Juron Criner – Arizona

The trade of Brandon Marshall left the Dolphins without a big,strong WR. Criner could fill that void.

10(74)(from Chi via Car.) S Phillip Thomas

Chris Clemons and Reshad Jones are both nothing more than marginal player. Thomas, who’s stock is on the rise, would be a solid choice in the 3rd.

11(75) ILB Mychal Kendricks – Cal

Lack of depth at ILB is a concern in Kansas City. Kendricks would be a solid rotational guy behind Jovan Belcher

12(76) DT Mike Martin – Michigan

Seattle landed DT Jason Jones through FA this March, but adding depth could still be an option in the draft especially if someone as talented as Martin were to fall this far.   

13(77) OT Jeff Allen – Illinois

There is now a major hole at OT since the release of Eric Winston.  

14(78) RB LaMichael James – Oregon

James gives the Jets more explosivness and a change-of-pace back behind Shonn Greene

15(79) CB Alfonzo Dennard – Nebraska

Quentin Jammer’s best days are behind him, and Marcus Gilchrist might be best suited as a Safety. Dennard’s recent off field troubles cause him to drop, but his talent at this point is worth the risk. 

16(80) TE Orsen Charles – Georgia

Now that Mike Martz is gone, the Bears can find a legit TE for Jay Cutler. 

17(81) WR AJ Jenkins – Illinois

Cardinals never had a WR emerge across from Larry Fitzgerald. Jenkins would be a great weapon and complimentary receiver for the Cards. 

18(82) CB Leonard Johnson – Iowa St. 

Cowboys can bring Johnson along slowly as it wouldn’t be surprising if Mike Jenkins was gone after next season. 

19(83) C Ben Jones – Georgia

Center is need of immediate upgrade, as Eugene Amano is probably best suited as a Guard.  

20(84) S George Iloka – Boise St.

Safety was a need heading into this offseason, now it’s an even bigger one after the release of Chris Crocker. 

21(85) DE Cam Johnson – Virgina

John Abraham was re-signed, but he is 34. Not to mention Ray Edwards was a huge disappointment  last season. 

22(86) CB/S Trumaine Johnson – Montana

The main hold back for the Lions last season was their average secondary.  Aside from Louis Delmas, they lacked any true playmakers. Johnson is a big,physical CB that would be a great addition to the Detroit secondary. 

23(87) OG Brandon Washington – Miami(FL)

Ramon Foster and Doug Legursky are serviceable, but nothing spectacular. Washington at worst could come in and challenge for a starting job. 

24(88) QB Brock Osweiler – Arizona St.

No one knows how long Peyton Manning will play for, might as well take a mid round flier on someone for the future.  

25(89)  S Antonio Allen – South Carolina

The play of the Safety position was one of the reasons why the Eagles were unsuccesful last season. Allen can provide some competition to allow the best man to start.  

26(90) OLB DeMario Davis – Arkansas St.

Saints first pick is a good one, Davis has a chance to earn significant playing time early on.   

27(91) DT/DE Derek Wolfe - Cincinnati 

Some have Wolfe pegged as a 1st round selection. If the Packers landed him here, it would be a major steal and a great pick citing the need at DE.   

28(92) DE/DT Jared Crick – Nebraska

Ravens need depth behing Ngata and McPhee. Crick fits the 3-4 perfectly.  

29(93) OLB Jonathan Massaquoi – Troy

Not a huge need, but Massaquoi would provide great depth as an extra pass rusher in the 3-4

30(94) OT Mitchell Schwartz – Cal

Pats seem to be set with Vollmer and Solder, but given Vollmer’s injury history, having a capable backup OT should be considered. 

31(95) WR Jarisu Wright – Arkansas

Wright can fill the slot role left by Mario Manningham. 

32(95) ILB Audie Cole – North Carolina St. 

Depth is needed at LB, and Cole has the skill set to play both inside and outside.

    Can you please explain how Stephen Hill and Chris Givens goes before Mohamed Sanu, Nick Toon, and Marvin McNutt? Did you give up your research in the 3rd round?

    • mockdraft says:

      Thanks for checking out the site. I have Sanu going in the first round to Houston. As far as the Others, Im not a fan of McNutt at all. He has a terrible time separating and I think Late 3rd/4th is where he belongs. Teams will be intrigued by Stephen Hill’s upside. He has plus ball skills and makes big plays. As far as Nick Toon and Chris Givens, as the processes draws out I don’t think there is too much separating them and they could both go in the range of 3rd/4th round and for this mock it was just they way they shook out.

    I don’t see the Packers passing on Bruce Irvin if there in the 3rd round. The team needs pass rushers and he is so unique and quick…hard to pass up.

    • mockdraft says:

      I have had Irvin mocked there in the past, but he’s a bit of a one trick pony. Massaquoi seems more of a Packers pick. Still raw, but he brings more overall game and potential than Irvin does IMO
