The 2017 SQ NFL Mock Draft

Austin Taliaferro

With the No. 1 overall pick all but set, who will your team take when they are on the clock?

The SQ team presents the official SQ Mock Draft for the first three rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.  Like how our writers turned GM selected for you team? Let us know in the comments.

   Pick (Rnd)

1 (1)

Cleveland Browns

Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

The best player in the draft, bar none. Garrett has the size, speed, and technique of an elite NFL pass rusher, and is a freakish athlete to boot. The Browns happen to need an edge rusher, but Garrett would probably be the #1 pick no matter what. (Christian Hoban)

2 (1)

San Francisco 49ers

Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

The 49ers have needs at every position on their team. There is no reason to not take the best player available to generate some much needed pass rush. Thomas can get to the quarterback as well as anyone in this class. (Matt Fowler)

3 (1)

Chicago Bears

Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio St

The Bears had the fewest turnovers forced in the league last year with 11. Adding the best cornerback in the draft will go a long way to fixing that. (Jack Tolman)

4 (1)

Jacksonville Jaguars

Haason Reddick, OLB, Temple

Jacksonville needs dynamic talent, and Reddick brings them something no other player in this draft has with his ability to rush the passer, play the run and excel in coverage. The all-American Conference selection can play outside linebacker or in the middle during the first two downs, and has the ability to put his hand on the ground on passing situations. (Nick Varallo)

5 (1)

Tennessee Titans

O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama

The Titans could easily go safety here with two great safeties on the board, but they also want to give Mariota some more weapons. With Delanie Walker turning 33 years old, adding a young talent like Howard could create a potentially unstoppable duo and an eventual replacement for Walker down the road. (Jack Tolman)

6 (1)

New York Jets

Malik Hooker, S, Ohio St.

The Jets really need to fix their secondary after a miserable season last year. Jamal Adams might be the safe pick, but Hooker has quickly soared up the big boards, and the Jets will buy into the hype. (Jack Tolman)

7 (1)

Los Angeles Chargers

Jamal Adams, S, LSU

Adams is the best safety in the draft for a team who has yet to replace Pro Bowler Eric Weddle. Adams’ value is too great to pass up at seven and fills a need for a team looking for defensive back help. (Matt Fowler)

8 (1)

Carolina Panthers

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

Jonathan Stewart is 30 years old, and the Panthers need as much help as they can get around Cam Newton. Fournette is capable of being a great three-down running back at the NFL level, and fits perfectly here. (Christian Hoban)

9 (1)

Cincinnati Bengals

Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama

Though their biggest need is OL after the departures of Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler, no offesnive linemen jump out this high. So, the Bengals will turn their attention to defense, which ranked 17th in the league. Allen is arguably the best prospect left on the board, and could form a dangerous D-line alongside Geno Atkins (Mitch Bloch)

10 (1)

Buffalo Bills

Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

Tyrod Taylor is good enough for now, but Buffalo needs a franchise quarterback. Watson took Clemson to back-to-back championship games, leading two drives late in the fourth quarter to beat Alabama to go out on top in his final season. He’s got all the tools to succeed at the NFL level, and he’s got some familiarity with Buffalo wideout Sammy Watkins from Clemson. (Christian Hoban)

11 (1)

New Orleans Saints

Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama

Foster is a dynamic linebacker, who is able to play both 3-4 ILB or 4-3 weakside linebacker. The Saints’ defense has been looking for a playmaker on this side of the ball for years, and have finally found one in Foster. (Matt Fowler)

12 (1)

Cleveland Browns

Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina

I know Cleveland traded for Brock Osweiler this offseason, but he’s not actually a franchise quarterback. Trubisky has franchise potential, and with Cleveland already getting Garrett #1 overall, Trubisky is a wise choice for Cleveland here to build for the future. (Christian Hoban)

13 (1)

Arizona Cardinals

Pat Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

Carson Palmer is 37 and is likely playing his last year. Mahomes can become the QB of the future in Arizona’s vertical passing attack which is perfect for his style of play. (Nick Cardozo)

14 (1)

Philadelphia Eagles

Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State

The Eagles filled their biggest need (wide receiver) in free agency with Alshon Jeffery. Their next biggest need is cornerback, but with such a deep cornerback draft, the Eagles have some flexibility here to take the best player available. Plus, running back is a need too with an aging Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles manning the backfield in South Philly. (Christian Hoban)

15 (1)

Indianapolis Colts

Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee

Indianapolis needs help in the trenches. They finished last ranked in rushing DVOA last year. Derek Barnett will help them here as well as their pass defense, which was fifth worst in the league last year. (Adrian Nelson III)

16 (1)

Baltimore Ravens

John Ross, WR, Washington

Ross gives Joe Flacco a dynamic, deep threat for him to throw long to. Baltimore’s current receiver group is either aging or unproven so Ross provides a much needed boost. (Nick Cardozo)

17 (1)

Washington Redskins

Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

The Redskins lost their top 2 receivers last season in Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson. Though they signed Terrelle Pryor, they still need help at receiver. They will not pass up Mike Williams falling this low. (Mitch Bloch)

18 (1)

Tennessee Titans

Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

Three Wide Receivers in a row? That’s right. Corey Davis might be the best wide receiver prospect in this draft and the Titans need a #1 target. With Howard drafted earlier, the Davis addition could make the Titans very scary quickly. (Jack Tolman)

19 (1)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan

Peppers is the kind of swiss army knife type that could form a potent combination with Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David for years to come. He will bring great support in the passing game for Vernon Hargreaves III and veteran Brent Grimes, and should be a willing participant in run defense as well. Don’t be surprised if he even returns a kick or two. (Nick Varallo)

20 (1)

Denver Broncos

Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

The Broncos desperately need help at offensive line, after ranking 24th this season by Pro Football Focus. Ramczyk is the best offensive lineman in the draft, and the Broncos won’t think twice about snagging him. (Mitch Bloch)

21 (1)

Detroit Lions

Zach Cunningham, OLB, Vanderbilt

Detroit was really bad on defense again last year and adding a big, strong LB like Cunningham should help. Cunningham is a sturdy tackler and showed great leadership for the Comodores, something this Lions’ unit needs. (Nick Varallo)

22 (1)

Miami Dolphins

Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan

Miami needs an injection of youth on the defensive line. Charlton’s length and passing rush abilities will allow him to contribute right away. (Nick Cardozo)

23 (1)

New York Giants

Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State

New York is never shy about drafting defensive linemen and the team needs an interior guy after Johnathan Hankins’ departure. McDowell can provide an interior pass rush to complement elite run stopper Damon Harrison. (Nick Cardozo)

24 (1)

Oakland Raiders

Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

The biggest weakness Oakland had last year was stopping the pass, so grabbing a player like Humphrey this late in the forst round should be a pleasant surprise. Humphrey is a long, athletic player who has a mean streak when tackling. He could start immediately over David Amerson and veteran Sean Smith. (Nick Varallo)

25 (1)

Houston Texans

Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

The Texans lost Bouye and Demps during free agency. Adding a player to their secondary could help ease the pain of those losses. (Jack Tolman)

26 (1)

Seattle Seahawks

Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

Seattle had the worst offensive line in the NFL, and their tackle play held them back from a deep postseason run. Robinson should be a force at the line, and could play either left or right tackle for the depleted Seahawks’ line (Mitch Bloch)

27 (1)

Kansas City Chiefs

Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

McCaffrey will be to the Chiefs what Brian Westbrook was to the Eagles under head coach Andy Reid. The Chiefs need a three down back to carry the load for Alex Smith and the offense. Reid would love to establish the run and get McCaffrey in space via screens and pitches. (Matt Fowler)

28 (1)

Dallas Cowboys

Kevin King, CB, Washington

Dallas lost both Brandon Carr and Mo Claiborne this offseason. King’s size, athleticism, and ability to play multiple spots in the secondary will make his a contributor from day one. (Nick Cardozo)

29 (1)

Green Bay Packers

David Njoku, TE, Miami

Aaron Rodgers has been sorely missing a reliable tight end for years. Njoku is a legitmate deep threat that will give opposing defensive nightmares figuring out how to cover him, especially with No. 12 throwing his way. (Adrian Nelson III)

30 (1)

Pittsburgh Steelers

Takkarist McKinley, OLB, UCLA

James Harrison can’t last forever, and with Jarvis Jones and Lawrence Timmons both leaving, the Steelers need more linebackers. McKinley is the best linebacker on the board, and there isn’t a prospect the Steelers are high enough on to bring in instead. (Jack Tolman)

31 (1)

Atlanta Falcons

Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky

Dan Quinn loves to build tough teams. Selecting Lamp here allows him to build on that philosophy while also adressing a position of need for the Falcons. Offensive guard is not a sexy pick, but these are the types of decisions that could allow them to find themselves back in the Super Bowl. (Adrian Nelson III)

32 (1)

New Orleans Saints

Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State

The Saints defense will need a complete overhaul from last year, making Conley a great value pick in the second round. Conley has the potential to be a strong number one corner in this league, something the Saints have been lacking for quite some time. Foster and Conley lead a revamped Saints defense into the 2017 season. (Matt Fowler)

33 (2)

Cleveland Browns

TreDavious White, CB, LSU

Joe Haden is a very good cornerback, but his best days may be behind him. Outside of Haden, the Browns are fairly weak in the secondary, and White gives them an instant boost in that part of the field. (Christian Hoban)

34 (2)

San Francisco 49ers

DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame

Brian Hoyer is not the quarterback of the future for Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers. Kizer is the perfect guy to sit and learn Shanahan’s offense for a season, making his debut in 2018. The 49ers need a quarterback and Kizer is a great selection early in the second round. (Matt Fowler)

35 (2)

Jacksonville Jaguars

Garett Bolles, OT, Utah

Bolles might be older than most in this draft, but he is extremely athletic and moves very well for a man his size. Jacksonville has showcased turnstyles upfront for years, so they need to make serious upgrades and the former JUCO player is the best lineman available. (Nick Varallo)

36 (2)

Chicago Bears

Charles Harris, DE, Missouri

The Bears decided to address their secondary in the first round instead of drafting Johnathan Allen (due to potential persisting arthritis in the shoulder), so they’ll address the Defensive Line here in the second round. (Jack Tolman)

37 (2)

Los Angeles Rams

Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn

The Rams had a dissapointing season last year and need a ton of help. After trading away a colossial of picks to get Jared Goff, the Rams will have less chances to hit on players, as such it may make sense to go for a high upside player like Carl Lawson with their first selection of the draft. (Adrian Nelson III)

38 (2)

Los Angeles Chargers

Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida

Early in the year, Wilson was arguably considered the best corner in the 2017 draft class. The Chargers need a number one corner after releasing veteran Brandon Flowers. The new Chargers’ secondary looks great on paper heading into a new era in LA. (Matt Fowler)

39 (2)

New York Jets

Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss

Best player available, and it fills a major need for New York. Tight Ends caught just 26 passes last season, and that has to change. (Jack Tolman)

40 (2)

Carolina Panthers

Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado

Carolina could not cover anybody in 2016 after the confusing release of Josh Norman. Awuzie gives them immediate help covering the elite receivers of the NFC South. (Christian Hoban)

41 (2)

Cincinnati Bengals

Taylor Moton, OG, Western Michigan

The Bengals will need to replace the loss of guard Kevin Zeitler in free agency. Moton is a big presence, and though he can play either tackle or guard, would likely be better suited at guard in the NFL. (Mitch Bloch)

42 (2)

New Orleans Saints

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC

After the trade of star receiver Bradin Cooks, the Saints will need to replace his production. Smith-Schuster is a great complement to Michael Thomas. His size and reliable hands will pair well will Thomas’ speed and ability to make big plays. (Matt Fowler)

43 (2)

Philadelphia Eagles

Adoree’ Jackson, CB, USC

Two USC players selected in a row who lined up against each other at practice for years. Jackson is an incredible athlete who will provide returning ability and cover ability for a team in need of both. (Christian Hoban)

44 (2)

Buffalo Bills

Curtis Samuel, WR, Ohio State

Sammy Watkins is a good receiver, but Tyrod Taylor (and now Deshaun Watson!) will need more help on the outside. (Christian Hoban)

45 (2)

Arizona Cardinals

Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson

Arizona can use a CB to put across from Patrick Peterson after Brandon Williams struggled last year. Tankersley has the length and playmaking ability any team would welcome in the secondary. (Nick Cardozo)

46 (2)

Indianapolis Colts

Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida

See pick No. 15 for the explanation. Brantly is another body for the defensive that can hopefully improve their standing in the run game. The Colts should look to take multiple shots in the draft at improving their front seven. (Adrian Nelson III)

47 (2)

Baltimore Ravens

Tim Williams, OLB, Alabama

Baltimore gives their pass rush a jolt with an explosive, quick twitch player. Williams will have to stay out of trouble but has the tools to succeed. (Nick Cardozo)

48 (2)

Minnesota Vikings

Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee

After the decline and eventual release of star Adrian Peterson, the Vikings left a hole at running back. Although they signed Latavius Murray, the team should look to add a running back of the future, who also complements Murray well. Kamara’s size and explosiveness will give the team a hard, inside runner to pair with Murray. (Matt Fowler)

49 (2)

Washington Redskins

Marcus Williams, S, Utah

Though they signed D.J. Swearinger, the ‘Skins still need lots of help at safety. The 6‘1” Williams should help in terms of length complementing the 5‘10” Swearinger (Mitch Bloch)

50 (2)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Budda Baker, S, Washington

Baker brings amazing range and play-making ability, which should allow Tampa to fully utilize Jabril Peppers. Having two stud safties has certainly helped Seattle maintain defensive supremacy, and these two young guys would allow for a stellar version of the “Tampa 2”. (Nick Varallo)

51 (2)

Denver Broncos

Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida

The Broncos won’t hesitate to pick up Davis if he falls this low. Though he could play both inside and outside, the Broncos should like him inside, to complement Brandon Marshall. (Mitch Bloch)

52 (2)

Cleveland Browns

Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State

After drafting for need (Garrett and White) and for the future (Trubisky), the Browns are now drafting for talent, and Godwin has it in bunches. He’ll be a good NFL receiver for years to come barring injury. (Christian Hoban)

53 (2)

Detroit Lions

Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio St

The Lions continue to solidfy a leaky defense by taking an inforcer who can blow up the running game. McMillan plays with bad intentions, and though he may be a little limited in pass coverage, he can really intimidate pass catchers over the middle. He could allow Tahir Whitehead to play on the weakside, where he is better suited. (Nick Varallo)

54 (2)

Miami Dolphins

Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana

Miami continues their offensive line rebuild after their guards disappointed last year. Feeney is a proven run and pass blocker and has the toughness you look for in an interior lineman. (Nick Cardozo)

55 (2)

New York Giants

Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida St

The Giants find Eli Manning some protection after suffering from lackluster tackle play. Johnson is incredibly long and has punch to his game. (Nick Cardozo)

56 (2)

Oakland Raiders

T.J. Watt, LB, Wisconsin

Even with the otherworldy contributions from Kahlil Mack, Oakland was last in the NFL in sacks last year. Watt can learn to play the game from the all-Pro, while helping rush the passer on third downs. (Nick Varallo)

57 (2)

Houston Texans

Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA

The Texans replaced Demps in the first round, and will use the second round to try and replace Bouye and help the secondary a little more. They still need a quarterback and could use a tackle, but neither have anyone worth selecting here. (Jack Tolman)

58 (2)

Seattle Seahawks

Chris Wormley, DT, Michigan

With Wormley falling down to the low second round, the Seahawks will take him. He provides versatility to a strong D-line, and can play either end or tackle. (Mitch Bloch)

59 (2)

Kansas City Chiefs

Teez Tabor, CB, Florida

Tabor was once looked at as an early first round pick, similar to his teammate Quincy Wilson, making this a valuable pick for Kansas City. The Chiefs need a productive corner to pair will All-Pro Marcus Peters. Tabor has the potential to fill that hole for Reid and the Chiefs. (Matt Fowler)

60 (2)

Dallas Cowboys

Josh Jones, SS, NC State

The Cowboys must find a Barry Church replacement to pair with Byron Jones. Josh Jones is an athletic prospect who can play well in the box and in deep coverage. (Nick Cardozo)

61 (2)

Green Bay Packers

Sidney Jones, CB, Washington

We all remember how the Packers season ended, with them giving up 44 points to the Atlanta Falcons. Many times this year the memebers of the Packers secondary looked lost. The bar is extremely low for Jones to provide some help to this lackluster pass defense. (Adrian Nelson III)

62 (2)

Pittsburgh Steelers

Desmond King, FS, Iowa

King gets to stay in the black and gold. The Steelers were nearly tempted by TE Adam Shaheen, but to Roethlisberger’s dismay, they’ll focus on the secondary. King will likely drop down to play cornerback and compete for a starting position right out of the gates. (Jack Tolman)

63 (2)

Atlanta Falcons

Larry Ogunjobi, DT, Charlotte

A lesser known name due to his school, Ogunjobi provides Atlanta with another body for their defensive line rotation and a great run stopper to anchor the middle of their defense. (Adrian Nelson III)

64 (2)

Carolina Panthers

Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina

The all-time leader in receptions at the FBS level, Jones provides an instant boost to a receiving corps that lost Ted Ginn this offseason and is struggling to get production out of Devin Funchess. (Christian Hoban)

65 (3)

Cleveland Browns

Dion Dawkins, OG, Temple

Cleveland needs all the help it can get on the offensive line, and Dawkins is the best available offensive lineman, adding to Cleveland’s already impressive haul on their 5th pick of the draft so far. (Christian Hoban)

66 (3)

San Francisco 49ers

Dorian Johnson, OG, Pittsburgh

At this point in the draft, the 49ers need to go with the best player available. Johnson gives the Niners a strong interior presence to build their offensive line with. Eventually, Johnson will be a strong piece along the offensive line protecting DeShone Kizer for years to come. (Matt Fowler)

67 (3)

Chicago Bears

Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington

WR Kevin White doesn’t seem to be panning out like they wanted him to, and Chicago will need to bring in some weapons to help out QB Mike Glennon. Kupp is a small school guy with a big upside. (Jack Tolman)

68 (3)

Jacksonville Jaguars

Pat Elflein, C, Ohio St

The Jags need to give Blake Bortles an actual shot at success and upgrading the 27th ranked offensive line is the best way to do that. Elflein played with numerous prolific QBs in college and projects to be the best center in this draft. Adding him with Bolles could make a big impact. (Nick Varallo)

69 (3)

Los Angeles Rams

Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado

Witherspoon is the protypical corner in the 2017 NFL. He has big body and long arms which allows him to challenge large receivers. LA could use him to sure up a secondary which struggled at times last year. (Adrian Nelson III)

70 (3)

New York Jets

Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston

The Jets are pretty set at linebacker, but Bowser is too hard to pass up on at this point. Best available. Easy choice. (Jack Tolman)

71 (3)

Los Angeles Chargers

ArDarius Stewart, WR, Alabama

The Chargers have a number one receiver in Keenan Allen, but no proven receiver to pair with him. Add into the equation Allen’s injury history, and Stewart is a great pick to add to an unproven receiving corps in LA. (Matt Fowler)

72 (3)

New England Patriots

Tarell Basham, DE, Ohio

It’s taken until the third round, but the Super Bowl Champs finally get a pick. Basham adds athleticism to the Pats front seven, and has a lot of potential to improve as a pass rusher at the NFL level. (Christian Hoban)

73 (3)

Cincinnati Bengals

Duke Riley, OLB, LSU

Karlos Dansby is 35 years old. The Bengals desperately need a replacement for him, which may come in the form of Duke Riley. (Mitch Bloch)

74 (3)

Baltimore Ravens

Jalen Myrick, CB, Minnesota

Baltimore grabs some depth in the secondary as Jimmy Smith has struggled with injuries throughout his career. Myrick has good press coverage skills and can contribute as a returner as well. (Nick Cardozo)

75 (3)

Buffalo Bills

Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, Alabama

At 6‘3” and 310 pounds, Tomlinson is a big dude. Kyle Williams is 34 years old, and the Bills could use some depth on the interior of their defensive line, and Tomlinson immediately provides that depth. (Christian Hoban)

76 (3)

New Orleans Saints

Joshua Dobbs, QB, Tennessee

Everyone knows Drew Brees’ playing days are numbered. Dobbs is the pick here due to his tireless work ethic. He will no doubt benefit from watching and learning from Brees for a few years. Dobbs’ natural ability combined with his willingness to do whatever it takes to be successful will prove to be valuable for the New Orleans Saints. (Matt Fowler)

77 (3)

Arizona Cardinals

Isaac Asiata, OG, Utah

Arizona grabs an interior blocker so David Johnson doesn’t have to create on his own as much. Asiata can play both guard spots and center and that kind of versatility is always coveted. He already possesses the size and strength necessary to play in the pros. (Nick Cardozo)

78 (3)

Baltimore Ravens

Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

Shaheen is the best player available at this point and gives Joe Flacco a huge target to work with. While the Ravens have some depth at TE, the value was too good to pass up. (Nick Cardozo)

79 (3)

Minnesota Vikings

Jermaine Eluemunor, OT, Texas A&M

It’s no secret the Vikings need help on the offensive line. The tackle position was a rotating door of players who couldn’t get the job done last season. Eluemunor is a great pick in the middle of the third round, allowing the Vikings to develop and shore up some holes in the trenches. (Matt Fowler)

80 (3)

Indianapolis Colts

Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma

The Colts have been rumored to be interested in Mixon as early as the first round. Given the opportunity to get a first round talent with pick No. 80 Irsay will jump at it. Time will tell though just what the lasting impact of Mixon’s assault will be. (Adrian Nelson III)

81 (3)

Washington Redskins

Montravius Adams, DT, Auburn

With an already sub-par rush defense, Washington lost Chris Baker to free agency. Enter Montavius Adams, who should compete for a starting spot on this weak defensive line. (Mitch Bloch)

82 (3)

Denver Broncos

Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama

Virgil Green is not a star tight end. With an uncertain situation at quarterback, the Broncos need more reliable options, like the former receiver Everett. (Mitch Bloch)

83 (3)

Tennessee Titans

Jordan Willis, DE, Kansas State

The Titans don’t necessarily need another defensive end, but Willis is the best player available on their draft board. He might not be an immediate starter with Casey and DaQuan Jones already there, but could see plenty of playing time. (Jack Tolman)

84 (3)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Demarcus Walker, DE, Florida St

This former Seminole is snapped up by nearby Tampa, who needs to fill a void rushing the passer. Walker was one of the most productive players in the country last season, and his pairing next to Chris Baker could be ferocious. (Nick Varallo)

85 (3)

Detroit Lions

Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma

Detriot fills out the receiving corps by bringing in one of the most prolific players in the NCAA last year. Westbrook is a polished route runner whose quickness profiles really well for the slot position. Playing inside could keep defensive backs from playing press against the slight OU product, which could allow him to flourish. (Nick Varallo)

86 (3)

Minnesota Vikings

Jake Butt, TE, Michigan

If not for the injury, Butt would have been off the board before the Vikings picked at 79. Although the team already has a productive tight end in Kyle Rudolph, the talent of Butt is too much to pass up for a team who will soon be looking for Rudolph’s replacement. Giving Butt a year to watch and learn from a solid tight end will only make him a better player for the Vikings in the future. (Matt Fowler)

87 (3)

New York Giants

Davis Webb, QB, California

Eli Manning is aging so the Giants may want a guy to groom for the future. Webb has recently received some buzz that he could end up as the best pro in this year’s QB class. He is known as an extremely hard worker and has protypical size for the position. (Nick Cardozo)

88 (3)

Oakland Raiders

Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson

Watkins is a tough body to move up front who can really stop the run and Oakland will be looking to replace Stacy McGee, one of the top run stuffers in the NFL last year. Watkins plays with a nasty demeanor and saw some of the top offensive lineman in the nation while playing in back to back National Championships at Clemson. He should be able to help right away. (Nick Varallo)

89 (3)

Houston Texans

Antonio Garcia, OT, Troy

With Derek Newton suffering a nasty pectoral tear this season, there’s a good chance he won’t be back this year. Chris Clark filled in for him and didn’t do a good job. Garcia provides insurance with the potential to compete for the starting job straight away. (Jack Tolman)

90 (3)

Seattle Seahawks

Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech

The closest thing the Seahawks have had to a star receiver these past few years is Doug Baldwin. Though Baldwin is a solid player, Seattle could have more weapons for Russell Wilson. (Mitch Bloch)

91 (3)

Kansas City Chiefs

Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE, Villanova

The Chiefs have a formidable defensive front, allowing them the ability to draft a developmental guy. Kpassagnon has the size and sheer strength to get to the quarterback, but will need a year or two to develop to the style of the NFL. The FCS star has the tools to be successful if given the time to develop. (Matt Fowler)

92 (3)

Dallas Cowboys

Derek Rivers, DE, Youngstown St

Dallas is in desperate need of pass rush help. Rivers is a small school prospect who will need development but has the burst and motor that coaches can build off of. (Nick Cardozo)

93 (3)

Green Bay Packers

Ryan Anderson, OLB, Alabama

Anderson doesn’t have a firm position yet, but as we’ve seen with Green Bay and their affinity for Micah Hyde, that doesn’t much matter. What they’ll care about is that he can rush the passer, play some coverage, and comes from a winning college program. (Adrian Nelson III)

94 (3)

Pittsburgh Steelers

Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson

Roethlisberger has apparently been lobbying for a tight end. While Leggett probably isn’t the one he was thinking of, the Steelers get some insurance just in case Ladarius Green’s injuries persist. (Jack Tolman)

95 (3)

Atlanta Falcons

Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky

After going with an OG from Western Kentucky in the first round, why not pick up a WR too? The Falcons succeeded last year because of the weapons complimenting Julio Jones. Taylor adds to their dangerous pass cathcing group with great route running and system versatility. (Adrian Nelson III)

96 (3)

New England Patriots

D’Onta Foreman, RB, Texas

Foreman is a large running back and has a lot of potential if he can learn how to use his size at the NFL level. The Pats always seem to be piecing together the running back position, but Foreman can provide them some consistency if Blount does not return. (Christian Hoban)

97* (3)

Miami Dolphins

Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan

Miami’s corners improved over the course of the season but can still use help. Lewis has the quickness to play in the slot and only allowed seven catches all of last season. (Nick Cardozo)

98* (3)

Carolina Panthers

Will Holden, OT, Vanderbilt

For a team in need of depth help at the tackle position, Holden is a very good fit here. He probably doesn’t have the speed to play left tackle, but is a good depth add for a desperate team. (Christian Hoban)

99* (3)

Philadelphia Eagles

Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan

The addition of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the offseason were nice, but have the potential to be short-term fixes. It is not wise to say no to talented players to put around your young franchise quarterback, and Carson Wentz has been starving for help. (Christian Hoban)

100* (3)

Tennessee Titans

Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee

The Titans have been unable to address their secondary yet in the draft, but get that opportunity here. Sutton could potentially compete for some ample playing time in his first season. (Jack Tolman)

101* (3)

Denver Broncos

Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

Hendrickson has been praised as a prospect from lesser-known Florida Atlantic. He would serve as a very nice complement alongside Derek Wolfe, and help contribute on special teams. (Mitch Bloch)

102* (3)

Seattle Seahawks

Danny Isidora, OG, Miami

The Seahawks need all the help they can get in their offensive line, with center Justin Britt the only reliable starter. After already selecting tackle Cam Robinson, they focus their attention on guard. Isidora should bring toughness to an ailing front and help the run game. (Mitch Bloch)

New Orleans Saints

Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State

The Saints need to add depth to their secondary, even after taking Gareon Conley in the second round. Kazee gives the Saints an agressive corner to add to the competition at the position. He is a great cover guy who translates as a slot corner at the next level. (Matt Fowler)

Kansas City Chiefs

Kendell Beckwith, ILB, LSU

Beckwith is a great value option late in the third round for a team looking for Derrick Johnson’s eventual replacement. After Johnson’s two Achilles injuries, the Chiefs need to find a viable long term solution at the inside linebacker position. Beckwith has the ability to be successful if drafted into a great situation like Kansas City’s. (Matt Fowler)

Pittsburgh Steelers

Nathan Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh

Peterman doesn’t need to move cities. Landry Jones has proven over the last couple of years that he isn’t the future for Pittsburgh, and with Roethlisberger’s retirement scare this offseason, the Steelers shouldn’t hesitate to start thinking about who’s next. Peterman is the best QB left, and could have a couple years to be groomed behind Big Ben. (Jack Tolman)

Seattle Seahawks

Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida

Yes, Seattle picked up Eddie Lacy, but the former Packer has not been at his best the past few seasons and has been battling weight issues for years. Mack can battle with Lacy and push him to be his best. (Mitch Bloch)

107* (3)

New York Jets

Chad Wheeler, OT, Southern California

The Jets are amidst a complete offensive line overhaul. Having not addressed the position yet in the draft, the Jets will use their compensatory pick to get a promising tackle and begin the rebuilding process. (Jack Tolman)
