2016 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round 3

Last update: Friday, April 29, 2016. 4:30 update
This is a 2016 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right (I nailed seven in my Re-Draft Round 2 in 2012, and five in my Re-Draft Rounds 2-3 in 2014), but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2016 NFL Draft.

  1. Tennessee Titans: C.J. Prosise, RB, Notre Dame
    The Titans traded for DeMarco Murray, but they'll be looking for another running back for depth purposes.

  2. Cleveland Browns: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State
    The Browns have to take a quarterback eventually, right? Connor Cook makes sense atop Round 3.

  3. San Diego Chargers: Carl Nassib, DE/DT, Penn State
    The Chargers could've easily chosen DeForest Buckner at No. 3 overall. I'm sure they'll consider a defensive end sometime during the second day of the draft.

  4. Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
    The Cowboys will consider Dak Prescott in the second half of Day 2. They want a solid backup as well as a successor for Tony Romo. As a Hall of Fame running back once said, this is killing two stones with one bird.

  5. San Francisco 49ers: Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
    What's funny is that I had San Francisco selecting Joshua Garnett here. Wow. At any rate, the 49ers need a receiver, so I'm sure they'll reach for someone else here.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Bronson Kaufusi, DE/DT, BYU
    Joey Bosa probably would've been Jacksonville's pick had he been available. I could see the Jaguars taking an edge rusher on the second day of the draft.

  7. Baltimore Ravens: Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State
    The Ravens were considering DeForest Buckner with the sixth pick, as they need help up front, especially in the wake of Chris Canty's departure.

  8. New York Giants: Tyler Boyd, WR, Pittsburgh
    The Giants would be thrilled to land Tyler Boyd in the third round, as they need a No. 2 receiver across from Odell Beckham Jr.

  9. Chicago Bears: Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas
    Jay Cutler will probably be around for just one more year, so the Bears need to think about using an early draft choice on a successor.

  10. Miami Dolphins: Kenyan Drake, RB, Alabama
    The Dolphins tried to sign C.J. Anderson, but failed. They clearly want a new running back to replace Lamar Miller, so here's a possible solution.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: T.J. Green, S, Clemson
    The Buccaneers managed to re-sign Chris Conte, but they still need another safety to go along with Vernon Hargreaves.

  12. Oakland Raiders: Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU
    The Raiders had interest in Eli Apple at No. 14, but he wasn't available for them. David Amerson is heading into free agency after the 2016 campaign, so here's a potential future No. 2 cornerback.

  13. Cleveland Browns: Kamalei Correa, DE/OLB, Boise State
    I had the Titans selecting Kamalei Correa here in my original mock draft, but the Boise State product makes sense for Cleveland as well.

  14. Cleveland Browns: Joshua Perry, LB, Ohio State
    I considered Myles Jack to the Browns back when it wasn't apparent that he'd plummet as a result of his knee. Here's a solution at inside linebacker.

  15. New Orleans Saints: Deion Jones, LB, LSU
    The Saints need to continue upgrading their defense, as they need help on all three levels. They have to improve upon Dannell Ellerbe, who was horrible last year.

  16. Philadelphia Eagles: Alex Collins, RB, Arkansas
    Ryan Mathews is one of the few Chip Kelly experiments who still happens to be on the roster. I don't expect that to last much longer.

  17. Buffalo Bills: Jalen Mills, S, LSU
    The Bills are looking for a safety, and Jalen Mills certainly fits the range in the middle of the third round.

  18. Atlanta Falcons: Charles Tapper, DE, Oklahoma
    The Falcons need an edge rusher, and they easily could've chosen Shaq Lawson at No. 17. Noah Spence has character issues, but Atlanta has taken chances on players like that.

  19. Indianapolis Colts: KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame
    Vontae Davis is coming off a down year, and yet he was still Indianapolis' best cornerback by a wide margin. Help here is definitely needed.

  20. New York Jets: Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers
    Leonte Carroo is just way too good to pass up here. The Jets run four-receiver sets, so Carroo makes sense. Plus, Brandon Marshall won't be around for very long.

  21. Washington Redskins: K.J. Dillon, S, West Virginia
    The Redskins bolstered their cornerback group with Josh Norman. They can perhaps fix their secondary completely by finding a talent in the second day of the draft.

  22. Houston Texans: Caleb Benenoch, OT, UCLA
    I wouldn't be surprised if the Texans selected a mid-round tackle to perhaps eventually challenge the underwhelming Derek Newton.

  23. Minnesota Vikings: Miles Killebrew, S, Southern Utah
    The Vikings have mentioned that they want to add another safety this offseason. Sean Davis fits exactly what Mike Zimmer is looking for from a defensive back.

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Simmons, S, Boston College
    The Bengals lost Reggie Nelson in free agency, so they'll have to replace him sometime in the next couple of rounds.

  25. Green Bay Packers: Jaylon Smith, LB, Notre Dame
    Jaylon Smith's medical recheck went terribly, and some teams now list him as a sixth- or seventh-round prospect. It's unfortunate, but perhaps some team will take a chance on him at the end of Day 2.

  26. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cardale Jones, QB, Ohio State
    The Steelers are desperate for a backup quarterback, so I could see them pulling the trigger on a project like Cardale Jones at this juncture.

  27. Seattle Seahawks: Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina State
    The Seahawks found a defensive tackle earlier. They still need help on the front, as finding another edge rusher wouldn't hurt.

  28. New England Patriots: Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State
    I'm sure Tom Brady is tired of throwing to pedestrian receivers. New England will have to give him a threat at wideout outside of Julian Edelman. Chris Hogan was added, but he's not the type of receiver who can threaten defenses downfield.

  29. Arizona Cardinals: Graham Glasgow, C, Michigan
    The Cardinals didn't draft Ryan Kelly or Cody Whitehair in the first round, so look for them to target Graham Glasgow at the end of Day 2. They love Glasgow's versatility.

  30. Carolina Panthers: Harlan Miller, CB, SE Louisiana
    The Panthers lost Josh Norman to the Redskins - go here for the Josh Norman signing grade - so they'll have to take a cornerback in the first three rounds of the draft.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: James Bradberry, CB, Samford
    Here's the type of small-school, mid-round cornerback Seattle typically has an affinity for.

  32. Detroit Lions: B.J. Goodson, LB, Clemson
    It's no secret that the Lions need some help at linebacker, and B.J. Goodson is the sort of prospect that Bob Quinn would've drafted under Bill Belichick.

  33. New England Patriots: Jordan Jenkins, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The Patriots dealt away Chandler Jones, so they should use a draft pick to bolster their pass rush.

  34. Seattle Seahawks: Ben Braunecker, TE, Harvard
    Jimmy Graham's status for 2016 is unclear, and he may never be the same again, as patellar tendons are difficult to come back from.

  35. Denver Broncos: Hassan Ridgeway, NT, Texas
    The Broncos had a nice pair of starting defensive ends in Derek Wolfe and Malik Jackson, but the latter has signed elsewhere. A better nose tackle is also a possibility.
