Round 3

65. Cincinnati Bengals: Willie Gay, LB, Mississippi State

Gay would provide the Bengals with athleticism at the linebacker position that they have not had for a long time. The character issues won’t scare off Cincinnati either.

66. Washington Redskins: Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC

Pittman has his struggles with separation, but he’s a legit above-the-rim threat who showed at the Combine he has enough speed to win vertically. Washington has needs at offensive tackle and cornerback, but the market is getting pretty thin at both spots, and the need at receiver is great as well.

67. Detroit Lions: Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri

Detroit has a shortage of bodies in the trenches, and that is something Matt Patricia probably won’t stand for. Elliott came into his own this season for Missouri, but I don’t see the top 35-potential that many other draft analysts do.

68. New York Jets: Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State

Dantzler had a miserable Combine, but someone will roll the dice on his 4.6 speed because his tape is so strong, especially against quality competition. The Jets don’t really have any quality cornerbacks on the roster, but there are only so many draft picks to fill all these holes.

69. Carolina Panthers: Neville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma

Matt Rhule saw firsthand the destruction Gallimore can cause with his quickness and motor, and now he’ll have a chance to add the inconsistent but talented defensive tackle to a roster heavily depleted of interior defensive line talent.

70. Miami Dolphins: Ashtyn Davis, S, California

In every draft someone falls that you don’t expect, and with a shortage of need across the league at a position that is already not considered the most valuable, Davis is that guy in this scenario. I think he’s a first round talent on tape, and Miami can pair he and McKinney together with Byron Jones and Xavien Howard to create a formidable young secondary.

71. Los Angeles Chargers: Robert Hunt, OG, Louisiana

The Chargers are re-inventing themselves offensively, building towards a more run-oriented offense in 2020. That’s perfect for Hunt, whose frame and play strength are pro ready to create movement up front.

72. Arizona Cardinals: Matthew Peart, OT, UCONN

The Cardinals still need a right tackle after selecting Derrick Brown early in the draft, and Peart might be the one with the most upside left. His Senior Bowl performance left a lot to be desired, but he does have the traits that the NFL always takes a chance on.

73. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

I have no clue where to put Jake Fromm, so a team that doesn’t covet physical tools as much as they do mental ones makes a lot of sense to me. I don’t have much hope for Fromm to be much more than a backup in the NFL, but Jay Gruden has made the most of similar talents before.

74. Cleveland Browns: Logan Wilson, LB, Wyoming

Maybe this is a bit high for Wilson, who I’ve admittedly only seen bits and pieces of, but I keep hearing the NFL likes him more than draft analysts are aware. He’d be a great new quarterback of the Browns defense with Joe Schobert moving on to Jacksonville.

75. Indianapolis Colts: Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame

Indy’s tough to figure out at this point in the draft, so why not take the first tight end off the board? Kmet should help Frank Reich run his coveted two tight end sets along with Jack Doyle, but he needs to improve as a run blocker or he’ll be a liability in certain situations.

76. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Damien Lewis, OG, LSU

The Bucs are rebuilding this offensive line through the draft, much like they did the secondary the past two years. Getting younger is critical, but getting meaner and tougher is even more of a priority. Lewis is a throttler of defenders in the run game, and his pass protection doesn’t get the credit it deserves.

77. Denver Broncos: Netane Muti, OG, Fresno State

Muti’s injury history could make him undraftable, I honestly don’t know. If he’s healthy, his balanced skill set is worthy of consideration in this range of the draft.

78. Atlanta Falcons: Cam Akers, RB, Florida State

Exchanging one Florida State running back for another. Akers ability to make people miss should be fun behind a Falcons offensive line looking to take a big step forward in 2020.

79. New York Jets: Ben Bartch, OL, Saint Johns

It was disappointing when Bartch couldn’t work out in Indianapolis, and now a canceled pro day threatens to leave his draft stock in the balance. A strong Senior Bowl and a Jets offensive line loading up on athletes could help him find a home in New York.

80. Las Vegas Raiders: Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois

Some thing Chinn will be off the board earlier than this, and maybe he will be. Las Vegas would love more depth at safety, especially in the form of a versatile player who has been labeled a lesser Isaiah Simmons in the eyes of many analysts.

81. Las Vegas Raiders: Raekwon Davis, DT, Alabama

The Raiders don’t have many long-term sure things on their defensive line, so continuing to stockpile young talent could be critical. Davis can stand up blockers and stop the run, but development as a pass rusher is something that hasn’t happened yet.

82. Dallas Cowboys: Troy Pride, CB, Notre Dame

Dallas can’t go into next season with Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown as their top three cornerbacks. Pride needs some work, but his athleticism was on full display during an impressive Senior Bowl week.

83. Denver Broncos: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn

Wanogho is still extremely raw despite starting 32 games at Auburn, but Denver needs to start building for the future at offensive tackle if Garrett Bolles fails to impress this season. If Mike Munchak can’t help Wanogho develop, he’s truly lost.

84. Los Angeles Rams: Amik Robertson, CB, Louisiana Tech

Robertson reminds me a little bit of the scrappy nickel cornerback the Rams just curiously decided to move on from in Nickell Robey-Coleman. Despite his size, Robertson competes and has exciting ball skills that the Rams really need in their rebuilding secondary.

85. Detroit Lions: Van Jefferson, WR, Florida

Jefferson doesn’t have the elite traits or athleticism, but he’s just always open thanks to outstanding technique and football IQ. He won’t drop many either, and doesn’t mind playing in tight quarters when the ball is in the air.

86. Buffalo Bills: Jonathan Greenard, EDGE, Florida

The Bills need to keep developing young edge defenders who can get after the quarterback, and although Greenard isn’t a bendy athlete, he’s got enough moves and counters to make some noise as a rusher in the NFL.

87. New England Patriots: Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton

The Patriots are dying for impact play at the tight end position, and Trautman is my favorite option in this class. He’s not a great athlete, but he can block, create separation at the top of his routes and finishes tough catches down the field.

88. New Orleans Saints: Reggie Robinson, CB, Tulsa

Robinson has the size, length and speed to get drafted in the top 100, with New Orleans as an ideal landing spot so he can ease into a role behind Janoris Jenkins and Patrick Robinson.

89. Minnesota Vikings: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame

The Vikings have had a frustrating lack of success finding an heir apparent to Stefon Diggs with the way the board has fallen so far, but they haven’t forced it either. Claypool has the juice and contested catch ability to be a vertical threat in their offense, but nobody in this range of the draft will make them forget about their former star receiver.

90. Houston Texans: Kyle Dugger, S/LB, Lenoir-Rhyne

Lenoir-Rhyne SS Kyle Dugger

Maybe I’m crazy for thinking Dugger could go later than people think, although this is probably too late. He plays free safety like a linebacker on tape, so some development is needed here, but he and Justin Reid could be an excellent long-term complementary pairing if Dugger can play more cerebral and technical in the NFL.

91. Las Vegas Raiders: Jacob Eason, QB, Washington

Eason is a Gruden-style quarterback in many ways, but the struggles under pressure are a concern. The big arm and peak throws make him worth taking a shot on at this point in the draft.

92. Baltimore Ravens: Zack Moss, RB, Utah

Mark Ingram is getting up there in age, and Moss offers a similar physical running style as well as soft hands out of the backfield. The Ravens offense is looking young and terrifying.

93. Tennessee Titans: Davon Hamilton, DT, Ohio State

Hamilton may not be able to make a major impact as a rusher, but he can stuff the run with the best of them in this class.

94. Green Bay Packers: Saahdiq Charles, OL, LSU

Charles is a classic boom-or-bust offensive linemen with rare athleticism and flexibilty for the position, but inconsistent tape and a litany of off-field concerns. This may be too high for him, but a strong organization could feel comfortable taking a chance on his talent.

95. Denver Broncos: Jordyn Brooks, LB, Texas Tech

Brooks is big and explosive, making some exciting, rangy plays on tape. His inexperience in coverage and spotty mental processing will have a chance to develop behind Alexander Johnson and Todd Davis.

96. Kansas City Chiefs: Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn

You can see Driscoll overpowered at times on tape, but while that is concerning, he found a way to win pretty consistently in pass protection. A move inside for a pass-heavy team could look like a good fit in a year or two.

97. Cleveland Browns: Bryan Edwards, WR, South Carolina

Edwards not being able to participate in the Senior Bowl or the Combine is going to kill his stock now that he won’t have a pro day. He flashes all the time on tape, but his game was too inconsistent, much like the offense he played in. I think his best football is ahead of him.

98. New England Patriots: K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio State

The Patriots are going to lose Mo Sanu and maybe Julian Edelman within the next year, and for a roster thinking about the future, finding the next slot receiver to play inside of N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers is important. Hill is a great fit in the New England offense with his ability to separate in the route tree.

99. New York Giants: Brandon Jones, S, Texas

Antoine Bethea won’t return for the Giants, leaving free safety wide open. I need to study Jones’ tape closely, but I’ve caught a good bit of his game over the past two years, and I love his value at this point in the draft.

100. New England Patriots: Troy Dye, LB, Oregon

The Patriots have a linebacker “type” that is difficult to pin down at times, but that type may need to evolve anyway moving forward. Dye needs to become more consistent overall, but the physicality and high-end flashes would make me feel great about him late on day two.

101. Seattle Seahawks: Michael Ojemudia, CB, Iowa

Tre Flowers struggled mightily last season, and Ugo Amadi is unproven in the nickel spot. Trading for Quinton Dunbar will help, but Seattle would be wise to nail down their next long-armed cornerback of the future to play opposite Shaquill Griffin.

102. Pittsburgh Steelers: Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky

Last year the Steelers took Wildcats running back Benny Snell on day three, this year it’s his former teammate and favorite lineman to run behind, Logan Stenberg. A nasty guard who will need to cut down on the penalties at the next level, Stenberg is a people mover who showed some progress as a pass protector, albeit in an offense that hardly ever throws the football.

103. Philadelphia Eagles: K’Von Wallace, CB, Clemson

The Eagles haven’t been able to address their need at cornerback as well as they’d hoped in this class, but adding a quality nickel in Wallace outside the top 100 should bolster the unit a bit heading into 2020.

104. Los Angeles Rams: Davion Taylor, LB, Colorado

Taylor is crazy raw and undersized for the position, which is exactly how the Rams like their linebackers (I think). He can run and hit, but must become a more disciplined, technically sound player before seeing the field heavily in the NFL.

105. Minnesota Vikings: Jabari Zuniga, EDGE, Florida

Raw, but explosive and violent. Sounds like Mike Zimmer’s edge defender of choice.

106. Baltimore Ravens: Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State

I couldn’t get too excited about Weaver based on his tape, but his production is impressive despite the fact that he was rarely beating quality tackles. His physical frame and technique against the run need work before he’s going to see the field heavily in the NFL.

That’s a hell of a three round mock draft. I would file this under, “ fantasy” because as Bucs fans we always fall short of the player we want or need. This is a killer draft and would be the perfect three rounds in my opinion. After that you could go WR and defense. Great job Jon. This is the best I could ever hope for based on needs and getting the top performers at their position.

This indeed would be a best case scenario for the Bucs. After the third the Bucs can use both 4th rounders on defense or use one on best available defensive player and best available offensive player. Ideally in the 4th the Bucs find a quality NT and the Bucs then pick up the best WR/return specialist. Or the Bucs can target an edge rusher with the 4a and then target a project QB to groom with 4b. Addressing the trenches early actually opens up the Bucs draft strategy for skill positions later in the draft. I hope the Bucs seriously… Read more »

The wild cards are going to be Arizona, and the Raiders. Arizona may even opt to go WR in round 1 and the Raiders may be the ones to go more defense in round 1. This is because the Raiders may choose a strategy of obtaining WR talent after round 1 in a deep class. My gut feeling says if the run on WR’s/QBs happens early in the top then then one of the four OTs will be there for the Bucs to scoop up IMVHO. Of course the 49ers are in prime position to take an OT or even… Read more »

Yet I got multiple thumbs down the other day for essentially hoping for the exact same scenario as this. My hope was to land one of the big 4 OL players at 14. If one of them was still there at 12, and the price to jump up 2 spots wasn’t significant, go up and grab him. If none of the big 4 are there at 14, then try and trade down, while swapping their 2nd rounder for an earlier 2nd rounder with their trade partner if possible. Then with the trade down I’d be happy to take Josh Jones… Read more »

Not a big fan of this draft. Both Suh, if resigned, and JPP have one maybe two years left in the tank if that. Suh is already deteriorating. JPP will be next. Rather grab a DL in the first round and a offensive right tackle in the second. Brady needs better protection than Winston ever got but good right tackles can be found in the second round. Drafting another RB in the second round is crazy. We already have one of those and he is still developing. You can also pick them up in FA. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit… Read more »

@drdneast. Sorry but I completely disagree with pretty much the entire post. Neither Suh or JPP are deteriorating. Suh is just a more rounded player than he was in his earlier years. He’s more of a run stuffer, and a player that demands 2 blockers which frees up other players( aka Barrett 19.5 sacks, and JPP 8.5 sacks in only 10 GP) plus we also have Vea, who started to come into his own last year. Suh did exactly what was asked of him in this defense. And as far as JPP there’s absolutely ZERO indication whether it’s from the… Read more »

There’s a reason why we were one of the best run defenses in the league and that had a lot to do with Suh and Vea.
