The Best of the Rest for Day 3

How Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion got drafted before Baylor’s Bryce Petty is beyond me. As far as natural talent, it’s not even close. The only advantage that I can see that Mannion had was he played in a more complex offense. As it stands right now, Petty is one of the better players still available to clubs in the 2015 NFL Draft. The only other quarterback that may go in the fourth round is UCLA’s Brett Hundley. At the running back position the two players that stand out are USC’s Javorius Allen and Florida State’s Karlos Williams. Minnesota’s David Cobb lacks top end speed but has been very productive in a major conference. At the wide receiver position, my best players still not drafted are Rashad Greene from Florida State and Stefon Diggs from Maryland. Both have excellent speed to go along with top production. A small school name to remember is William and Mary’s Tre McBride. This wasn’t a strong tight end class, but there still are a few players with good grades. My best undrafted tight end so far is Penn State‘s Jesse James, followed by South Carolina’s Rory Anderson. On the offensive line, the player that stands out is Florida State Tre' Jackson. There have been reports that Jackson may have some medical issues as far as his knees. Another guard with value is Texas A&M’s Jarvis Harrison. At the tackle spot, obviously Pitt’s T.J. Clemmings is the best player available. He has first round talent but people are worried about his foot. Another very good tackle prospect is South Carolina’s Corey Robinson. If you favorite team needs a defensive end, how about Arkansas’s Trey Flowers? Bobby Richardson from Indiana is an excellent defensive tackle. Other defensive lineman available include Ohio State’s Michael Bennett, who is an ideal 3-technique. At inside linebacker, Michigan State’s Taiwan Jones has been very productive, as has Michigan’s Jake Ryan. The best edge rusher available is Virginia’s Max Valles. Don’t forget Tennessee – Chattanooga’s Davis Tull, and at Will the best available is LSU’s Kwon Alexander. The corners that stand out to me are Louisville’s Charles Gaines and Tulane’s Lorenzo Doss. Another who may get selected in the fourth round is Josh Shaw from USC. The safety class is said to be weak but there still are some good names left on the board. Fresno’s Derron Smith plays well but has marginal size. Virginia’s Anthony Harris is productive as is Durell Eskridge from the ‘Cuse. Ole Miss’s Cody Prewitt was impressive at both the Combine and his pro day. The free safety with the best ball skills in the draft is Louisville's Gerod Holliman but he isn’t known for his physicality. Follow Greg on Twitter @greggabe
