  1. 2017 NFL Draft: Cal receiver Chad Hansen highlights best available on Day 3 By Dane Brugler 14h ago • 3 min read There are 107 draft picks in the books for the 2017 NFL Draft as three rounds have passed with several potential impact players off the board. However, there is still talent available on the draft board and for various reasons. 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. Chad Hansen knows how to create after the catch.USATSI 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. Samaje Perine set an FBS record for rushing yards in a game. USATSI 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 SHARE
  2. NFL team seems highly sensitive to incidents that occur before draft time in which the litigation process hasn't started yet. I don't know his past history but if its clean I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and draft him despite there not being a need.
  3. He already has questions about his ability to separate, now he has questions about his knees in which as fans we have no medical info on to push whether we want him or not. If it's the ordinary ACL tear, I would have no problem burning our 1st 5th rounder on him.
  4. Players I hope we consider are ... Carl Lawson, DE/OLB, Auburn T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma Kyle Fuller, C, Baylor
  5. Would had targeted Howard and Cook, however both of these safeties are beast. You can hate the selection but by no means the player.
  6. Cook has done a hack of a job playing injured. So much you would never known he was banged up. Tim Williams is turning 25. Would have no problem taking him in the 3rd but how much upside does he have at that age along with the character concerns to take in the high 2nd rounds? Both he and Robinson have prominent character concerns. We're just finding out about Cook's just recently.
  7. Browns have the 33rd pick. Wouldn't be surprised if they went D again. With Cook still on the board they should give him a strong look. Maybe even take a gamble on Foster.
  8. I doubt the Browns are going to sign or draft a DB name Devin Smith to run back a 84 yard TD against us so highly unrealistic.
  9. The NFL is a cutthroat business where some of the world’s best athletes hurl their bodies at each while playing on contracts that are largely unguaranteed (unlike the other three major American professional sports). However, the New York Jets took it an extra step on Friday, cutting linebacker Julian Stanford on his wedding day. Stanford entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Wagner in 2012. He made the Jacksonville Jaguars as a rookie, playing in 16 games and making 6 starts. Stanford spent the next two seasons with the Detroit Lions and then the 2015 season split between the Tampa Buccaneers and the Jets’ practice squads. In 2016, he made the Jets’ active roster and played in 9 games, making 2 starts.
  10. He seems to have good backup potential as an under study player. Another one of these guys I like is Kelly from Ole Miss.
  11. I have a feeling 9-1-1 would be a busy operator if this was to be the pick at six.
  12. How so as I completely disagree. If these guys were to stay in school as they all had an opportunity too. They would all be consider the top QBs for 18. Trubisky had the better year imo all the top QB prospects from this year and next year prospects. Had he went back and had as good or better season he would have been more of a sure thing rather then a question mark with limited game experience. With all that said I would love for us to trade Howard.
  13. With the 97th pick Vikings select: Alex Anzalone, OLB/ILB, Florida KP and the Panthers are OTC
  14. Why is it that the Vikings are on the clock again? What pick are we up to? Was there a trade down with the previous selector?
  15. With the 79th pick the Minnesota Vikings select: T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina @Integrity28 (Colts) OTC
