From CBS:

Below are the top players available entering Day 3 on Saturday.
1. Chad Hansen, WR, California (6-2, 202, 4.53)
A transfer from the FCS level, Hansen waited his turn at Cal and dominated as a junior in 2016, attacking defenses at every level with the athleticism to get open and create after the catch. He is simply a fun player to watch play football.

2. Carl Lawson, DE/OLB, Auburn (6-2, 261, 4.67)
A Brandon Graham-type of rusher, Lawson does a great job using his lower-body movement and upper-body power in unison to beat blockers off the edge. He lacks ideal length and his past medical issues are a concern, but Lawson has the energetic play style off the edge that NFL teams covet.
3. Desmond King, DB, Iowa (5-10, 201, 4.53)
The Thorpe Award winner in 2015 as a junior, King returned to school for his senior season and didn't have the same type of production. He doesn't have ideal speed, which might make him move to safety, but his cover awareness, ball skills and toughness are NFL quality.

4. Jake Butt, TE, Michigan (6-5, 246, 4.74)
Projected as a top-50 prospect last summer, Butt suffered a torn ACL in his bowl game, which caused him to fall out of the top three rounds. The medical reports have been favorable and he should return to the field early in the 2016 season, allowing a team to get him at a discount.
5. Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh (6-5, 300, 5.27)
A mauling left guard, Johnson looks the part and isn't afraid to move bodies in the run game. Some teams are worried about his medicals due to an issue with his liver and that could drop him down boards, but at some point, he will be worth the risk.

6. Eddie Jackson, FS, Alabama (6-0, 201, 4.53)
A four-year starter at Alabama, Jackson made the transition from cornerback to safety as a junior and collected six interceptions. He returned for his senior season, but suffered a season-ending left leg fracture in October -- his second major surgery after tearing the ACL in his right knee in 2014.
7. Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa (6-3, 316, 5.38)
With 7.5 sacks as a senior in 2016, Johnson became the first Iowa defensive tackle to lead the team in sacks since Mike Daniels in 2011. He doesn't play with much consistency and is better against the run than the pass, but the flashes are enticing with his body control and heavy hands.

8. Corn Elder, CB, Miami (Fla.) (5-10, 183, 4.55)
Elder often shadowed the opposing team's top receiver and did a nice job with his twitched-up athleticism to stay attached at the hip with wideouts. He won't be a fit for every defense with his size, but the toughness and route anticipation makes him a nickel candidate with special teams ability.
9. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (5-11, 233, 4.65)
Perine first introduced himself to college football when he set the FBS single-game record with 427 rushing yards as a freshman in 2014. He is an ordinary athlete and dependent on the blocking in front of him, but his balance as a runner and physical blocking skills are NFL worthy.
10. Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma (6-0, 178, 4.39)

There are some off-field and personality worries with Westbrook, but he can stretch the field with his speed (12 touchdown catches of at least 40 yards last season). Although he has a slight frame and comes with character concerns, his explosive vertical skills will land him somewhere.
Best of the rest:
11. Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
12. Nico Siragusa, G, San Diego State
13. Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia
14. Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
15. Jalen Myrick, CB, Minnesota
16. Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
17. Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson
18. Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee
19. Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida
20. Nathan Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
21. Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU
22. Danny Isidora, G, Miami (Fla.)
23. Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
24. George Kittle, TE, Iowa
25. Will Holden, OT, Vanderbilt

Are you talking 5th round or 7th. Will any of those players be available then for us or are you all excited just to see where they go?

If Perine makes it to our 5th or we can move up I'll be pretty damn happy with this draft.

Or if Williams out of BYU is still around. If not, Corn.

What were you thinking mdb when they passed Melifonwu, Kpassagnon and Witherspoon to select Justin Evans?

You left out: Jordan Willis, Kevin King, Marcus Williams, Sydney Jones, Adam Shaheen, Quincy Wilson, Tyus Bowser, Chidobe Awuzie, Josh Jones, Tarrell Basham; Fabiem Moreau.

I was thinking if there was a player we really wanted we would have to make a move up and the problem is we might have tried - we just wont know.


Due to our draft positioning we were doomed and I guess they did what they felt they needed to do.

For such a talented draft class, I'm not feeling many 2nd contracts. But who knows future drafts might show our inability to get it done also and we will see more Conte like moves...

In the end we lost out on a lot of players that had high sides that we had a chance of making them even better.

I dont think we were all that desperate to have to draft a WR but I dont know what price we would have had to pay to move up in the 2nd.

Every move cancels out many or should I say most of the options I have presented, a 1st round trade down would have helped change later picks but then you got no Orange juice.

You are the Ray Rhodes of BZ, mdb. I wonder if you spend as much time watching these prospects of yours' play football as you do watching them work out?

I'm really hoping we trade up for Perine.

I've accepted that they are going to give Doug a shot. I'm ok with it. But I think we would be foolish to do it without a little insurance. If Doug gets hurt or fails another drug test, we'd atleast have Perine, Rodgers, and Sims. I'd feel much better going into the season.

Yep, need insurance for Doug. Even a day 3 rookie.

Although we may sling it 40x a game with these targets.

I wouldn't mind Dorian Johnson. We do have a glut of interior linemen but this guy could come in and likely win the LG job outright in camp.

You were hot for Mike Mamula back in the day. Admit it.

I like either of them. Davenport also.

RBs - Perrne, Mack, Williams

CB- Elder

Any of those 7 would be great. Package the 7th+5th together if we can to get one.

Dorian Johnson would be an epic steal at this point, but he'll be long gone I think. If we somehow landed Perine, I'd be feeling alot more comfortable.

I just hope Licht goes BPA with the last two picks, I don't count on any of these guys from day 3 so anything we get is all gravy.
