Last update: Saturday, April 30, 2016.
This is a 2016 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Cleveland Browns: Eric Murray, CB, Minnesota
The Browns have yet to address their secondary, and it's not like they don't need to. A starting corner is needed across from Joe Haden.

Cleveland Browns: Keyarris Garrett, WR, Tulsa
The Browns lost Travis Benjamin to free agency. That left just Josh Gordon as a viable receiving option, and now it's sounding like Gordon won't be playing for a while in the wake of his recent failed drug test. Check out the Disaster Grades for more on Gordon. At any rate, another receiver is needed to complement Corey Coleman.
Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
The Cowboys will consider Dak Prescott in Day 3. 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.
San Diego Chargers: Jeremy Cash, S, Duke
Jeremy Cash is a surprise name to still be on the board. Perhaps the Chargers will take him to replace Eric Weddle.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Thomas, WR, Southern Miss
I think the Jaguars could add a receiver in the middle rounds, and Michael Thomas certainly fits the range at this spot.
Baltimore Ravens: Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU
Cornerback is Baltimore's biggest need, but it hasn't been addressed yet. That has to change soon.
Kansas City Chiefs: Christian Westerman, G, Arizona State
The Chiefs found a defensive lineman; now, it's time to address the trenches on the other side of the ball, as Andy Reid is wont to do.
Kansas City Chiefs: Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina
The Chiefs need to consider adding a second receiver, as the offense looked lost last year when Jeremy Maclin was out of the lineup.
Baltimore Ravens: Charles Tapper, DE, Oklahoma
The Ravens are also in need of another edge rusher, as Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil aren't going to be around much longer.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Connor Wujciak, DT, Boston College
The Buccaneers had numerous defensive tackles hitting free agency, so they could be looking for depth at the position in the middle rounds.
New York Giants: Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
Tom Coughlin figured out that going with a rotation of Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen worked best, but it was already too late. It's hard to count on Jennings for the long term, however, so here's a potential running back of the future.
Los Angeles Rams: Jack Allen, C, Michigan State
It's no secret that the Rams have to upgrade the center position. Fortunately for them, they're getting a steal at this juncture.
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.
New England Patriots: Alex Lewis, OT, Nebraska
The Patriots can add another offensive lineman, as they need a tackle for depth purposes.
Los Angeles Rams: Kenny Lawler, WR, California
The Rams obviously need to add some talent around their new quarterback, though that'll be difficult to do, given the lack of draft choices.
Oakland Raiders: Ryan Smith, CB, N.C. Central
The Raiders need to add a cornerback because of expiring contracts coming up. They easily could've taken one in the first round had Eli Apple fallen to them.
Atlanta Falcons: Alex McCalister, DE/OLB, Florida
It's a bit surprising that the Falcons haven't found an edge rusher yet. I'm sure that'll change early during the third day.
Indianapolis Colts: Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana
Frank Gore doesn't have much left in the tank, so the Colts will need to find someone who can take over in the near future.
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 a mid-round draft choice on a successor.
New York Jets: Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor
What in the world happened to Andrew Billings? His free fall has to stop at some point, right? The Jets do need a nose tackle.
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.
Washington Redskins: Alex Collins, RB, Arkansas
With Alfred Morris gone, the Redskins may want to add another running back into the mix.
Minnesota Vikings: Willie Henry, DT, Michigan
The Vikings have discussed adding a defensive tackle for current depth and future starting potential, and Willie Henry seems like a good fit.
Cincinnati Bengals: Jalen Mills, S, LSU
Reggie Nelson left via free agency, but the Bengals have yet to replace him. Here's their chance.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
Some Steeler supporters back Alejandro Villanueva, but the fact remains that Pittsburgh tried to upgrade him via free agency. A mid-round choice could be used on competition.
Chicago Bears: Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech
The Bears tried to sign C.J. Anderson this offseason, but failed to secure him. Thus, it's likely that they'll take a running back sometime on Day 3.
Indianapolis Colts: Tyler Matakevich, ILB, Temple
The Colts lost Jerrell Freeman in free agency, so they're really hurting right now at inside linebacker.
Kansas City Chiefs: Travis Feeney, LB, Washington
Derrick Johnson's return to the lineup has been huge for Kansas City's defense, but the team has a weakness right next to Johnson. Also, it needs to be considered that Johnson just turned 33, so he doesn't have many dominant years left.
Chicago Bears: Joe Haeg, OT, North Dakota State
The Bears need a legitimate left tackle. Joe Haeg obviously wouldn't be asked to start right away, but he'd potentially give the team a future blind-side protector.
Arizona Cardinals: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State
Some on TV are shocked that Connor Cook is still available. I had him mocked at the end of the third round, so I can't say I am. Cook interviewed absolutely horribly throughout the pre-draft process, so he was always destined to slide.
Cleveland Browns: Tyler Ervin, RB, San Jose State
The Browns probably would've drafted Ezekiel Elliott had he fallen to them at No. 8. Here's their chance to take a talented running back.
Baltimore Ravens: Tavon Young, CB, Temple
It's certainly possible that the Ravens will double up on cornerbacks, given how dire the need at the position happens to be.
Green Bay Packers: Matt Ioannidis, DT, Temple
Adding a second defensive end makes sense for the Packers, who need to improve the trenches on both sides of the ball.
Baltimore Ravens: Joshua Perry, LB, Ohio State
The Ravens lost Daryl Smith this offseason, so I'm sure they'll try to find some linebacker depth in the early stages of Day 3.
San Francisco 49ers: Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
The 49ers are so desperate at receiver that they could select multiple players at the position in these next four rounds.
Baltimore Ravens: Joe Dahl, G/OT, Washington State
The Ravens landed Ronnie Stanley in the first round, but they can't be done addressing their offensive line. A replacement for Kelechi Osemele must be acquired.
Dallas Cowboys: Jason Fanaika, DE, Utah
I mentioned earlier that the Cowboys have a lacking pass rush right now, especially in the first four games. Adding more edge players makes sense.
Denver Broncos: Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona
The Broncos lost Danny Trevathan this offseason, and Brandon Marshall will be hitting the market next spring. Here's some help at inside linebacker.
Green Bay Packers: Paul Perkins, RB, UCLA
The Packers managed to re-sign James Starks, but running back remains a need because of Eddie Lacy's weight problems (though from pictures, he looks like he's shed an entire human being.)
Cleveland Browns: Connor McGovern, G, Missouri
The Browns drafted Shon Coleman earlier, but that's not nearly enough to fix their woeful offensive line.
Buffalo Bills: Deon Bush, S, Miami
The Bills are looking for a safety, and Deon Bush certainly fits the range at the end of the fourth round.
