2017 NFL Draft Results




Round 3



Cordrea Tankersley fell to the third round. Tankersley was 16th on my board.



Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: April 28, 2017.


  1. Cleveland Browns: Larry Ogunjobi, DT, Charlotte B+ Grade

    The Browns can draft Larry Ogunjobi here. The 6-2 297 lb Larry Ogunjobi had 13.5 tackles for a loss and 3 sacks in 2016. Ogunjobi dominated his Senior Bowl, the 2017 NFL Combine, and Charlotte's 2017 NFL Pro Day. This is an awesome spot for Larry Ogunjobi to get picked. Ogunjobi can start next to Danny Shelton right away.


  2. San Francisco 49ers: Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado A Grade

    San Francisco drafts a field cornerback here. Ahkello Witherspoon is the top cornerback on the board after Cordrea Tankersley. The 49ers got a 2018 second for the Saints for 67th pick.



  3. New Orleans Saints: Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee B+ Grade

    Alvin Kamara is a third string running back. I think Kamara will be utilized as a third down pick.


  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dawuane Smoot, LE, Illinois B- Grade

    Jacksonville adds depth at defensive end. I like Carroll Phillips better, but I have a late third round grade on him.



  5. Los Angeles Rams: Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington B+ Grade

    Jared Goff needs a #1 wide receiver. Cooper Kupp could be Goff's #1 target.


    The 6-1 197 lb Cooper Kupp had 117 receptions, 1,700 receiving yards, and 17 receiving touchdowns in 2016. Those numbers are mind boggling even for an FBS receiver with the hands and route running on tape.


    Kupp dominated against FBS schools like Oregon in 2015 and Washington State in 2016 where he led Eastern Washington to a huge upset over Washington State who was the last PAC 12 team to lose before collapsing down the stretch.


    Kupp accepted his invite to the 2017 Senior Bowl. Kupp had an awesome week in Mobile before struggling at the 2017 NFL Combine with his 4.62 40-time. He did worse running a 4.65 40-time with the wind in his face. I like this pick though.


  6. Minnesota Vikings: Pat Elflein, C, Ohio State A+ Grade

    Pat Elflein at 6-2 303 lbs has the versatility to play left guard, center, or right guard. Elflein is without a doubt the best center in the 2017 NFL Draft. Minnesota needs a starting center and Elflein is my top center.



  7. Los Angeles Chargers: Dan Feeney, RG, Indiana A+ Grade

    The 6-4 311 lb Dan Feeney is talented enough to play right guard right now. Feeney also lined up at center and right tackle in Mobile. He gives the Chargers a right guard next to Forrest Lamp.


  8. Tennessee Titans: Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky A+ Grade

    In this situation, Tennessee drafts a second wide receiver. Taywan Taylor dominated even without Brandon Doughty at quarterback and torched Marlon Humphrey on tape.



  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Jordan Willis, LE, Kansas State B- Grade

    Jordan Willis would be better in a 3-4 defense at left outside linebacker. He gets by right tackles on tape like Dunlap. Terrible pick.


  10. Baltimore Ravens: Chris Wormley, 3-4 LE, Michigan A+ Grade

    Chris Wormley had a dominant week in Mobile and followed that up with a stellar Pro Day. Wormley is now once again a defensive tackle who is projected to go in the first two rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft. Wormley fell to the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft in this mock, and is a steal at this point.



  11. Atlanta Falcons: Duke Riley, ROLB, LSU F Grade

    Atlanta reached for a seventh round pick. Atlanta gets our third F grade.


  12. New Orleans Saints: Alex Anzalone, ROLB, Florida F Grade

    New Orleans reached for a seventh round pick. New Orleans gets our third F grade.



  13. Carolina Panthers: Daeshon Hall, RE, Texas A&M A Grade

    The 6-6 270 lb Daeshon Hall has 4.5 sacks, 13.5 tackles for a loss, and 12 quarterback hurries would be a fantastic addition at this point. Hall showed he could play 4-3 right end or 4-3 left end in Mobile and validated why he should get picked in the first three rounds.


  14. Baltimore Ravens: Tim Williams, 3-4 ROLB, Alabama A+ Grade

    Baltimore took the 6-3 244 lb Tim Williams despite his off the field issues. Some believe he's a Vic Beasley/Von Miller clone and a special player despite the baggage. Williams had 9 sacks, 12 quarterback hurries, and 16 tackles for a loss in 2016.



  15. New York Jets: ArDarius Stewart, WR, Alabama F Grade

    ArDarius Stewart is a reach here. This is an F grade.


  16. Indianapolis Colts: Tarell Basham, 3-4 ROLB, Ohio A Grade

    The Colts get a 3-4 pass rusher. They get their man in Tarell Basham here. Basham has the versatility to play both 4-3 defensive end spots. The 6-4 259 lb Basham had 10.5 sacks and 15 tackles for a loss in 2016.



  17. Washington Redskins: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA A Grade

    I have two corners ahead of Fabian Moreau. This is still an excellent pick.


  18. Denver Broncos: Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech A+ Grade

    Denver drafts the 5-11 199 lb Carlos Henderson as a slot receiver. Carlos Henderson had 82 receptions, 1,535 receiving yards, and 19 receiving touchdowns in 2016. Henderson's speed and route running allows him to stand out on tape. Henderson is the best player available at a position of need.



  19. New England Patriots: Derek Rivers, ROLB, Youngstown State A+ Grade

    The 6-5 255 lb Derek Rivers had a career high 14 sacks in 2016 before being invited to the 2017 Senior Bowl. Rivers has 56.5 tackles for a loss in his four year career at Youngstown State. Rivers was the 22nd best player on my board.


    Derek Rivers is versatile enough to play 4-3 right end, 4-3 left end, 3-4 right outside linebacker, and 3-4 left outside linebacker. Rivers did 30 reps on the bench press at the 2017 NFL Combine.


  20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State A+ Grade

    The 6-1 209 lb Chris Godwin had 59 receptions, 982 receiving yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns in 2016. Godwin impresses on tape with his hands, route running, jumping, and speed on tape. Godwin picked apart Adoree Jackson on tape and ran a 4.42 40-time. He's a great fit for the Buccaneers at this point in the third round.



  21. New England Patriots: Antonio Garcia, LT, Troy A+ Grade

    I had Garcia going way earlier than this. He can develop behind Nate Solder in his contract year.


  22. Kansas City Chiefs: Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo A Grade

    Kansas City goes with a running back. Kareem Hunt had an impressive Pro Day and is probably a late third round prospect. Kareem Hunt has four consecutive seasons of 866 rushing yards or more having 1,475 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns in 2016. He finally corrected issues with ball carrier vision and pass catching in 2016, but I still have concerns about his consistency on tape



  23. New York Giants: Davis Webb, QB, California A+ Grade

    Davis Webb had 3,601 passing yards, 33 passing touchdowns, 61.4 completion percentage, and 12 interceptions in his first season as a starter in 2016. Webb was the MVP of the 2017 Senior Bowl. Webb seems like an ideal quarterback for the Giants to develop.


  24. Oakland Raiders: Eddie Vanderdoes, DT, UCLA F Grade

    Oakland reached for Eddie Vanderdoes. There were 5 better defensive tackles on the board.



  25. Houston Texans: D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texas A+ Grade

    I had the Texans taking Foreman in the second round. Easily an A+ grade.


    The Texans need an offensive player to build around Patrick Mahomes. Most of the second round offensive players are gone, but D'Onta Foreman is a top 40 talent and provides depth behind Lamar Miller.


  26. Seattle Seahawks: Shaquill Griffin, CB, Central Florida D+ Grade

    There are so many cornerbacks that are better. I'm giving Seattle a D+ grade.



  27. Los Angeles Rams: John Johnson, SS, Boston College D+ Grade

    The Rams need a replacement to T.J. McDonald. This is a huge reach.


  28. Dallas Cowboys: Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan C- Grade

    There were better corners than Lewis on the board. This pick gets a C- grade.



  29. Green Bay Packers: Montravius Adams, NT, Auburn A+ Grade

    Montravius Adams compliments Kenny Clark perfectly here. I'm not sure if Clark will play nose tackle or 3-4 left end, Adams will play the other spot.


    Montravius Adams had 26 solo tackles, 18 assisted tackles, 44 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks, 15 quarterback hurries, 2 deflections from pass breakups, 2 blocked kicks/punts, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 defensive touchdown.


  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee A+ Grade

    Pittsburgh uses this pick on a cornerback for depth. Sutton is a corner that is the best player available here.



  31. Seattle Seahawks: Delano Hill, SS, Michigan C Grade

    Seattle reached for Delano Hill here. That's why this is a C grade.


  32. Detroit Lions: Kenny Golladay, WR, Northern Illinois B Grade

    Detroit gets another receiver for depth here. Kenny Golladay is a 6-4 218 lb beast at wide receiver.



  33. Miami Dolphins: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson A+ Grade

    Miami gets the 97th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the New York Giants signed right end Olivier Vernon in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Vernon became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Miami gets a #1 field cornerback here. Cordrea Tankersley is my top cornerback after Marshon Lattimore.


  34. Arizona Cardinalss: Chad Williams, WR, Grambling State F Grade

    Carolina gets the 98th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Washington Redskins signed cornerback Josh Norman in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Norman became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Arizona reached for a wide receiver. They get an F grade.


  35. Philadelphia Eagles: Rasul Douglas, CB, West Virginia A+ Grade

    Baltimore gets the 99th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Oakland Raiders signed left guard Kelechi Osmele in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Osmele became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Philadelphia traded their third round pick at 74 for Timmy Jernigan of the Baltimore Ravens and this pick. Rasul Douglas gives Philadelphia a #1 field cornerback which is something the Eagles haven't addressed yet.


  36. Tennessee Titans: Jonnu Smith, TE, Florida International F Grade

    Los Angeles gets the 100th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the New York Giants signed cornerback Janoris Jenkins in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Jenkins became a Free Agent in 2016. The Rams traded this pick to the Titans though.


    Jonnu Smith is a seventh round tight end. Jonnu Smith is a reach since you got Bucky Hodges, Jordan Leggett, and Jake Butt there.



  37. Denver Broncos: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar A Grade

    Denver gets the 101st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Jacksonville Jaguars signed defensive tackle Malik Jackson in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Jackson became a Free Agent in 2016.


    The 6-1 190 lb Brendan Langley can play man coverage, zone coverage, or press coverage. Langley has football IQ to understand cover 0, cover 1, cover 2, cover 3, and cover 4. Langley had an interception against Houston when playing the FBS opponent in Houston. Langley accepted his invite to Mobile. Langley didn't help or hurt his stock in Mobile. Langley dominated the NFL Combine so the Steelers get Langley for depth here.


  38. Seattle Seahawks: Nazair Jones, DT, North Carolina F Grade

    Seattle gets the 102nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Denver Broncos signed left tackle Russell Okung in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Okung became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Seattle reached for Jones. This is an F grade.


  39. New Orleans Saints: Trey Hendrickson, LE, Florida Atlantic B+ Grade

    Cleveland gets the 103rd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Atlanta Falcons signed center Alex Mack in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Mack became a Free Agent in 2016. The Browns traded this pick to New England for Jamie Collins and this is the first year teams can deal compensation picks. As a result the Patriots moved this pick to the Saints in the Brandin Cooks trade.


    New Orleans uses this pick on a developmental player. Trey Hendrickson is a steal at this point and provides fantastic depth for the Saints here.


  40. San Francisco 49ers: C.J. Beathard, QB, Iowa Chip Kelly Grade

    Kansas City gets the 104th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Oakland Raiders signed cornerback Shaun Smith in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Smith became a Free Agent in 2016.


    This pick gets a Chip Kelly grade. Big reach.



  41. Pittsburgh Steelers: James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh A Grade

    Pittsburgh gets the 105th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Jacksonville Jaguars signed left tackle Kelvin Beachum in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Beachum became a Free Agent in 2016.


    The 6-2 235 lb James Conner has 216 carries, 1,092 rushing yards, and 16 rushing touchdowns. Conner improved as a blocker and also had 299 receiving yards and 4 receiving touchdowns giving Conner 20 total touchdowns in 2016. Conner is declaring for the 2017 NFL Draft and would provide fantastic value at this point in the third round.


  42. Seattle Seahawks: Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan C Grade

    Seattle gets the 106th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Oakland Raiders signed left outside linebacker Bruce Smith in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Smith became a Free Agent in 2016.


    Seattle reached for Darboh. This was a reach.


  43. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kendall Beckwith, LOLB, LSU C Grade

    New York gets the 107th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the New York Giants signed defensive tackle Damon Harrison in the 2016 NFL Free Agency Period after Harrison became a Free Agent in 2016. The Jets traded this pick to Tampa Bay.


    I had a sixth round grade on Beckwith. Beckwith plays a SAM linebacker role in Tampa Bay.
