Round 3

65. Houston TexansA.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama (Kyle)

Choosing to pass on a QB early, Houston still needs to select a quarterback. McCarron gives them a proven winner for Bill O’Brien to develop.

66. Washington RedskinsJeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech (Dan)

Attaochu is still a bit raw, but he has tremendous upside. He’s an athletic pass rusher that fits well as a rush backer in a 3-4 defense.

67. Oakland RaidersWill Sutton, DT, Arizona State (Kyle)

Will Sutton has been working hard to shed weight in preparation for his NFL career. The Raiders need the kind of disruption that he showed when he played at a lighter weight in 2012.

68. Atlanta FalconsDemarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB, Boise State (Dan)

With their first two picks, Atlanta addressed their offense, but their defense was near the bottom in the league in generating quarterback pressure last year. Lawrence gives them a young, athletic pass rusher that can get after the quarterback.

69. Tampa Bay BuccaneersKelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina (Kyle)

Lovie Smith is rebuilding Tampa Bay’s defense this offseason. Quarles’ big 6-4, 300-pound frame and bull rush would be a loved addition to the Buccaneers defensive unit.

70. Jacksonville JaguarsBishop Sankey, RB, Washington (Dan)

Having lost Maurice Jones-Drew in free agency, Jacksonville needs to revitalize their running game. Sankey is a balanced back with both size (5-11, 210) and speed (4.49).

71. Cleveland BrownChris Borland, LB, Wisconsin (Kyle)

The Browns swapped out D’Qwell Jackson for Karlos Dansby, but they need someone else to play inside in their 3-4 defense. Borland will look to shake his doubters with great production in Cleveland.

72. Minnesota VikingsVictor Hampton, CB, South Carolina (Dan)

Hampton is a physical defensive back with playmaking ability, but lacks top-end speed. He seems like a perfect fit as a nickel corner in the NFL.

73. Buffalo BillsTerrence Brooks, S, Florida State (Kyle)

Terrence Brooks is great value in the third round. He will get the opportunity to try to fill the big shoes of the recently departed Jarius Byrd.

74. New York GiantsDavante Adams, WR, Fresno State (Dan)

Adams has some of the best hands in this deep class of receivers and would be a nice complement to Victor Cruz in the Giants offense.

75. St. Louis RamsBashaud Breeland, CB, Clemson (Kyle)

The Rams parted ways with Cortland Finnegan this offseason. Clemson’s Breeland is flying under the radar, but could be asked to come in and contribute immediately for St. Louis.

76. Detroit Lions – Joel Bitonio, OL, Nevada (Dan)

Bitonio is one of the better offensive lineman prospects nobody has heard of. He can play guard or tackle and would help upgrade a struggling Detroit offensive line.

77.  San Francisco 49ers – Marcus Martin, C, USC (Kyle)

Jonathan Goodwin’s best years are behind him and San Francisco looks content to move on at the center position.  Marcus Martin is arguably the best center prospect in the draft.
