Big names disappear, but future impact players don’t.
Day 3 of NFL 2020 draft it doesn’t have the cache of the previous two, but some of the league’s best players are not known just hoping to shoot.
Tom Brady (sixth round) ring the bell? Kam Chancellor (fifth round)? Richard Sherman (fifth round)? Atkins Geno (fourth round) There are gems to be found in round 4-7.
Here are the top 10 prospects that are still available:
Akeem Davis-Gaither, OLB, Appalachian State
The team craves versatility in linebackers and that is Davis-Gaither’s strength, the ability to cover and occupy passers-by. With a weight of 224 pounds, he must gain weight, but at the very least, he must become a special team contributor immediately.
Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
One time the top five recruits who lost their jobs in Georgia by Jake Fromm, Eason had a strong season in Washington, featuring large arms and quality pocket mobility. Accuracy and decision making remain a concern, because Eason 6-foot-6 threw 16 interceptions in only 29 campus games.
Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
After three quarterbacks are taken in the first six picks, only the other two follow through the three opening rounds. Fromm’s arm strength and lack of mobility hurt him, but he was the winner, taking Georgia to the three SEC East crowns and throwing 78 touchdown passes, only 18 interceptions and completing 63.3 percent of his passes at the country’s main conference for three seasons.
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
Not a fast trader, but has the size and skillet to stay, and maybe even makes a difference with his ability to make games on the field. Gandy-Golden’s 6-foot-4 averaged 17.7 yards per catch in the fall – which ranks in the top 10 among recipients with 60 or more receipts – while catching 79 passes for 1,396 yards.
Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
If it wasn’t for an ankle injury at the end of the season in October that needed surgery, the 6-foot-1 Hall would be long gone now. As a junior, he led the country with 22 farewell graduations. There is always the risk of taking a player out of injury, especially when he’s still not 100 percent – that’s what happened with Hall – but it’s even harder to make up for his lack of talent.
Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri
Big and fast, the 6-foot-5, 258-pound tight end runs 4.49 40 – the fastest of the tight ends in this design. He also caught at least six goals each in the past three years.
La’Mical Perine, RB, Florida
With so many teams prefering multiple rotations, Perine physically has to get a place in the league. Weighing 5 feet 11 and 216, the bruised Perine can be a short-range weapon, as suggested by 30 career touchdowns in Florida.
Amik Robertson, CB, Louisiana Tech
Yes, his size at 5-foot-8 is a problem, which is the main reason he is still available. But it is difficult to teach ball skills like those of Robertson. In three years, he had 14 interceptions and produced 16 passes last season and added 44 tackles, a sign of his toughness.
Kenny Robinson, S, XFL
After academic problems led to his expulsion in West Virginia, Robinson developed rapidly in a closed XFL, producing 21 tackles and two interceptions in just five matches with St. Louis BattleHawks. It came in the second season that stood out for Mountaineers, when he was the first All-Big 12 team choice and had four interceptions and 77 tackles. The Wilkinsburg, Pa. Original made drama.
Troy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame
Ball skills may never get there, but you can’t teach speed or size, and with a height of 6 feet, the Pride profile is good at the next level. His three intercepts in four years at Notre Dame illustrate that he is not an artist who can be brought home, but his 18 operatives that are shown show he is often around the ball in a good position.
