DraftSite's comments:A lot of teams were clambering for Carter in the 3rd round.
67 Cleveland Trade Icon Chad Thomas DE Miami 6' 6" 265

DraftSite's comments:We called Denver taking a running back in the third round.
72 NY Jets Nathan Shepherd DT Fort Hays State 6' 4" 305

75 Kansas City Trade Icon Derrick Nnadi DT Florida State 6' 3" 305

DraftSite's comments:Rudolph to James Washington is now a thing in the NFL.
77 Cincinnati Sam Hubbard* DE Ohio State 6' 4" 265
DraftSite's comments:Sam Hubbard was so close to getting picked by a number of different teams and always seemed to lose out to another prospect...tremendous value for the Bengals.
78 Cincinnati Trade Icon Malik Jefferson* OLB Texas 6' 2" 240
DraftSite's comments:Jefferson would have benefited from another year at Texas but he made great strides as a junior.
79 Seattle Trade Icon Rasheem Green* DE USC 6' 4" 275
DraftSite's comments:If Green can hold up at the point of attack against the run the Seahawks have quite a steal.
80 Houston Trade Icon Martinas Rankin OT Mississippi State 6' 5" 302
DraftSite's comments:Injury concerns pushed Rankin down the board, he can play a number of positions along the line.

86 Baltimore Trade Icon Mark Andrews* TE Oklahoma 6' 4" 250
DraftSite's comments:A pair of tight ends in Baltimore.
87 Oakland Trade Icon Arden Key* DE LSU 6' 6" 238

88 Green Bay Trade Icon Oren Burks OLB Vanderbilt 6' 2" 235
DraftSite's comments:Must be something here Green Bay really likes...round 3...really?

94 Tampa Bay Trade Icon Alex Cappa OT Humboldt State 6' 6" 305

95 San Francisco Trade Icon Tarvarius Moore S Southern Miss 6' 1" 195

96 Buffalo Trade Icon Harrison Phillips* DT Stanford 6' 3" 295
