As we enter Day 3, we are lucky this is a deep draft filled with quality players across the board. Even though we went 2-14, this is not a roster that has a lot of holes. Either we filled those holes in the FA market or we will be trying to attempt to fill those needs this weekend. We could still use a ILB, DE, S, WR, QB and possibly another OG/C in this draft. As for the type of talent available for Day 3, here is a look at some names to keep a eye on.
QB's still left on the board are Matt Barkley (USC), Ryan Nassib (Syracuse), Tyler Wilson (Arkansas), Zac Dysert (Miami Ohio), Tyler Bray (Tennessee), Matt Scott (Arizona), Landry Jones (Oklahoma), Jordan Rodgers (Vanderbilt), Sean Renfree (Duke), etc. Would not surprise me to see KC take a QB at 4.2 but then again I've thought it had been a possibility throughout the 3rd round.
When it comes to ILB there are still plenty to be had. AJ Klein (Iowa State), Kevin Riddick (North Carolina), Nico Johnson (Alabama), Vince Williams (Florida State), Michael Mauti (Penn State), Steve Beauharnais (Rutgers), etc. This is a position you can get a player in the 5th-6th. We already have Akeem Jordan that can start the season and allow one of the young pups to grow slowly. Khaseem Greene (Rutgers) is another player that can play inside/outside much like Jordan.
WR wise there are still guys like Quinton Patton (La Tech), Ryan Swope (Texas A&M), Chris Harper (K-State), Da’Rick Rogers (Tennessee Tech), Kenny Stills (Oklahoma), Cobi Hamilton (Arkansas), Josh Boyce (TCU), Conner Vernon (Duke), Ace Sanders (South Carolina), TJ Moe (Missouri), Tarvarres King (Georgia), Marcus Davis (Va Tech), Marquess Wilson (Washington State), Aaron Mellette (Elon), etc. that are still out there to be had. Some of these guys have potential to be #2 WR’s and Pro Bowl types. I would assume our target out of that list is someone that can stretch the field vertically or has the ability to make a big play with his feet after a quick reception.
When it comes to safeties in the draft we have barely scratched the surface. Much like WR, there are to many to completely name off but some to keep a eye on are Phillip Thomas (Fresno State), Baccari Rambo (Georgia), Earl Wolff (NC State), Shamarko Thomas (Syracuse), Duke Williams (Nevada), Josh Evans (Flordia), TJ McDonald (USC), Bradley McDougald (Kansas), Tony Jefferson (Oklahoma), etc. Someone with FS capabilities would be preferred to challenge/remove Kendrick Lewis but then again our staff may want to move Berry back to FS?
As for getting depth at the DE position and someone that could possibly take over for T-Jax after next season, well there are some quality options out there. This is a position you can normally find late in the draft. Options could be Jesse Williams (Alabama), Devin Taylor (South Carolina), William Gholston (Michigan State), Joe Kruger (Utah), Damion Square (Alabama), Baker Steinkuhler (Nebraska), Kapron Lewis-Moore (Notre Dame), etc.
As for names to keep an eye on for C/G are Barrett Jones (Alabama), Brian Schwenke (California), Khaled Holmes (USC), David Quessenberry (San Jose State), Blaize Foltz (TCU), Edmund Kugbila (Valdosta State), etc.
So as everyone can see, we still have plenty left on the board and this was just some of the big names to keep an eye on. We have five picks left, so things are far from over.
