Tony Mario's 2017 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds




Round 3




Tony Mario Last Updated: April 24, 2017.


  1. Cleveland Browns: Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma

    Cleveland drafts Joe Mixon here. Some believe Mixon is worthy of a first or second round pick, but I am still worried about drafting him the first two rounds. One thing I will say is that Mixon is moving up so I doubt he makes it past the Browns at 65.


    Other Cleveland Browns Selections






  2. San Francisco 49ers: Justin Evans, SS, Texas A&M

    San Francisco gets a safety for depth here. Justin Evans may fall to the third round and if he does, he'd be a steal for the 49ers at this point.


    Other San Francisco 49ers Selections







  3. Chicago Bears: Josh Jones, FS, North Carolina State

    Chicago gets a safety here. Josh Jones is another second round talent that fell to the third round so now the Bears ignore quarterback once again and draft for value with Mike Glennon locked up as the starter while Mark Sanchez is the backup.


    Other Chicago Bears Selections






  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Pat Elflein, C, Ohio State

    Jacksonville can go with the best player available at this pick. At this point that player is Pat Elflein who was once a first round pick.


    Other Jacksonville Jaguars Selections







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

    Cooper Kupp gives Jared Goff a #1 target. Kupp may go earlier than this, but the Rams will not pass on him if he falls to this pick.


    Other Los Angeles Rams Selections






  6. New York Jets: Ryan Anderson, 3-4 ROLB, Alabama

    The Jets get the best player available. At this point, I believe that player is Ryan Anderson who can play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme that the Jets run on either side.


    Previous Pick: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA

    Other New York Jets Selections







  7. Los Angeles Chargers: Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida

    Los Angeles gets a second defensive tackle to pair with Corey Liuget here. Caleb Brantley could start at defensive tackle for the Chargers as a rookie if he can overcome the maturity issues because the talent is there on tape.


    Previous Pick: Larry Ogunjobi, 3-4 LE, Charlotte

    Other Los Angeles Chargers Selections






  8. New England Patriots: Ethan Pocic, C, LSU

    The New England Patriots have an undrafted center starting. You can make a case for Pocic going in the early portion of the third round. Belichick may fall in love with Pocic's versatility. Plus Pocic is bigger than Elflein.


    Other New England Patriots Selections







  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Chad Hansen, WR, California

    Cincinnati gets a wide out to push Tyler Boyd for the #2 receiver job. Chad Hansen could do well in either the outside or the slot depending on where the Bengals used him plus having Hansen makes this receiving core a whole lot deadlier.


    Previous Pick: Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia

    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections






  10. Baltimore Ravens: Dorian Johnson, LG, Pittsburgh

    Baltimore drafts a left guard here. John Urschel is expendable and Dorian Johnson can start right away if he recovers from his injury.


    Other Baltimore Ravens Selections







  11. Buffalo Bills: Davis Webb, QB, California

    Buffalo grabs Davis Webb as a developmental quarterback. Webb is someone that can develop behind Tyrod Taylor in case Taylor screws up because Cardale Jones is not the quarterback of the future.


    Other Buffalo Bills Selections






  12. New Orleans Saints: Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado

    New Orleans will need a cornerback for depth. The Saints add another Colorado Buffaloes corner to push Ken Crawley for the nickel job getting some much needed cornerback depth.


    Other New Orleans Saints Selections







  13. Arizona Cardinals: Nate Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh

    Arizona goes with a quarterback to groom behind Carson Palmer here. Nate Peterman is the top quarterback available.


    Other Arizona Cardinals Selections






  14. Baltimore Ravens: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington

    Baltimore drafts a cornerback for depth here. Sidney Jones is someone the Ravens can gamble on with Jimmy Smith, Brandon Carr, and Tavon Young on the roster.


    Other Baltimore Ravens Selections







  15. Minnesota Vikings: Montravius Adams, DT, Auburn

    Minnesota grabs a defensive tackle here. Sharrif Floyd may not recover from his injury.


    Other Minnesota Vikings Selections






  16. Indianapolis Colts: Eddie Jackson, SS, Alabama

    The Colts draft a safety for depth. Eddie Jackson is a plug-in-play guy that can play anywhere on the secondary. The only reason he's slipping this far is because he got injured at Alabama. He is a perfect depth player for the Colts at safety at this point.


    Other Indianapolis Colts Selections







  17. Washington Redskins: Marcus Maye, FS, Florida

    In this situation, Washington drafts a safety for depth. Marcus Maye is too talented to pass on at this point even with his injury history.


    Other Washington Redskins Selections






  18. Denver Broncos: Raekwon McMillan, 3-4 MLB, Ohio State

    Denver gets Raekwon McMillan here. McMillan provides outstanding depth behind Brandon Marshall and Todd Davis.


    Other Denver Broncos Selections







  19. Tennessee Titans: Larry Ogunjobi, 3-4 LE, Charlotte

    Tennessee gets Karl Klug's replacement here. Larry Ogunjobi is a better fit in a 4-3 defense, but at 6-2 297 lbs, I'm kind of curious to see what kind of reaction I get by mocking Ogunjobi to the Titans here.


    Previous Pick: Jordan Sterns, SS, Oklahoma State

    Other Tennessee Titans Selections






  20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida

    Tampa Bay can get Marlon Mack for depth in the backfield. Mack has 3 seasons of 1,000 rushing yards at South Florida and they share the same stadium as the Buccaneers.


    Other Tampa Bay Buccaneers Selections







  21. Detroit Lions: Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming

    The Lions get a running back here despite having four running backs under contract. Brian Hill is the top prospect on the board at this point.


    Other Detroit Lions Selections






  22. Minnesota Vikings: Roderick Johnson, LT, Florida State

    The Vikings draft a left tackle for depth here. Riley Reiff will get a second chance at left tackle in Minnesota after being the Lions left tackle for most of his career until the Lions drafted Taylor Decker in 2016. Depth behind Reiff at left tackle will be needed in Minnesota.


    Other Minnesota Vikings Selections







  23. New York Giants: Tyus Bowser, ROLB, Houston

    Tyus Bowser is too good to pass on at this point. Bowser is a future starting outside linebacker on either side in the 4-3 or the 3-4. The Giants have starting outside linebackers for 2017, but lack depth at outside linebacker and can develop Bowser for the future.


    Other New York Giants Selections






  24. Oakland Raiders: Carl Lawson, ROLB, Auburn

    The Raiders can draft Carl Lawson here. Lawson gives Oakland a replacement to Malcolm Smith here.


    Other Oakland Raiders Selections







  25. Houston Texans: Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    Houston drafts a tight end here. Adam Shaheen for Ashland is a good addition for depth the Texans at this point in the third round.


    Other Houston Texans Selections






  26. Seattle Seahawks: Elijah Qualls, DT, Washington

    The Seahawks can draft a defensive tackle for depth here. Elijah Qualls is a local for Seattle and a great fit for the Seahawks at this point in the third round.


    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections







  27. Kansas City Chiefs: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson

    Kansas City drafts a future starting running back here. Wayne Gallman is an absolute steal at this point in the third round.


    Other Kansas City Chiefs Selections






  28. Dallas Cowboys: John Johnson, SS, Boston College

    John Johnson compliments Byron Jones as a strong safety. Johnson can replace Barry Church at strong safety right away.


    Other Dallas Cowboys Selections







  29. Green Bay Packers: Will Holden, LT, Vanderbilt

    Green Bay gets offensive tackle depth here for David Bahktiari and Bryan Bulaga. Will Holden would make a great player for depth at offensive tackle at this point.


    Other Green Bay Packers Selections






  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami FL

    Pittsburgh uses this pick on a quarterback to groom behind Ben Roethlsiberger. Brad Kaaya is the ideal signal-caller for Pittsburgh to develop here.


    Other Pittsburgh Steelers Selections







  31. Atlanta Falcons: Montae Nicholson, FS, Michigan State

    Montae Nicholson lined up at both safety spots on tape. Nicholson is a good addition for the Atlanta Falcons at this spot.


    Other Atlanta Falcons Selections






  32. New England Patriots: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee

    New England uses this pick on a cornerback. Cameron Sutton is a great depth player that the Patriots can consider at 96.


    Other New England Patriots Selections







  33. Miami Dolphins: Corn Elder, CB, Miami FL

    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 needs a starting cornerback. Corn Elder is a local and someone that the Dolphins can add for cornerback depth in the third round.


    Other Miami Dolphins Selections






  34. Carolina Panthers: Tarell Basham, RE, Ohio

    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.


    The Carolina Panthers get a defensive end for depth. Tarell Basham is an option at 98.


    Other Carolina Panthers Selections






  35. Philadelphia Eagles: Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech

    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. The Ravens traded this pick to Philadelphia for the 74th pick and Timmy Jernigan.


    Philadelphia gets a wide receiver for depth. Isaiah Ford is a good value pick for the Eagles in the third round who can have Ford correct hsi route running during his rookie season before being a future receiver for the Eagles in 2018.


    Other Philadelphia Eagles Selections






  36. Tennessee Titans: Jordan Sterns, SS, Oklahoma State

    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.


    I had the Titans taking Sterns with their first third round pick last week. This week Sterns fell to this pick at 100.


    Previous Pick: Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida

    Other Tennessee Titans Selections







  37. Denver Broncos: Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma

    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.


    Denver goes with a running back for depth. Samaje Perine is my top running back at this point in the third round. He gives Denver a quality third stringer for depth behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker.


    Other Denver Broncos Selections






  38. Seattle Seahawks: Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech

    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.


    The Seahawks can draft a wide receiver for depth here. Carlos Henderson is kind of a steal at this point.


    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections






  39. New Orleans Saints: Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo

    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 gets a running back for depth. Kareem Hunt is my top running back available.


    Other New Orleans Saints Selections






  40. Kansas City Chiefs: Tanoh Kpassagnon, 3-4 LE, Villanova

    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.


    Tanoh Kpassagnon gives Chris Jones competition at 3-4 left end. This would be a good pickup for the Chiefs late in the third round.


    Other Kansas City Chiefs Selections







  41. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson

    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.


    Jordan Leggett may be too good to ignore at this point. Leggett provides awesome value in the third round, plus he'd be a good complimentary tight end in Pittsburgh.


    Other Pittsburgh Steelers Selections






  42. Seattle Seahawks: Jadar Johnson, SS, Clemson

    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.


    Jadar Johnson is versatile enough to play strong safety or free safety. Johnson would be a great safety for Seattle to develop for depth at this point because he's a one year starter who has potential, but lacks experience.


    Other Seattle Seahawks Selections






  43. New York Jets: Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech

    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 draft a future tight end here. Bucky Hodges is a great addition for the Jets at this point in the late third round.


    Previous Pick: Adam Bisnowaty, LT, Pittsburgh

    Other New York Jets Selections
