2013 IAOFM Rational Actor Mock Draft - Round 3

# Team Player Pos School
63 Kansas City Margus Hunt DE SMU
A freak athlete who is probably best suited for a 3-4, like the Chiefs play.
64 Jacksonville Brandon Jenkins OLB Florida State
Jenkins is probably a pass rush specialist in the NFL, and we know that Gus Bradley values that type of skill set.
65 Detroit Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB Connecticut
Solid CB for a team that continues to need help at that position.
66 Oakland Kawann Short DT Purdue
The word is that Short's stock has been falling, but he's a guy could still be a first-round pick. The Raiders would love to have him at #66.
67 Philadelphia Eric Reid FS LSU
Reid is a talented but inconsistent guy, and the Eagles could stand to take a risk here, in hopes that they get the upside.
68 Cleveland Tyler Bray QB Tennessee
Bray is a smart pick for the Browns here, because his arm is definitely good enough for the Cleveland weather, and Norv Turner's scheme.
69 Arizona Tyler Wilson QB Arkansas
Wilson makes sense as a developmental guy for the Cardinals, because the scheme he played in college is fairly similar to what Bruce Arians does.
70 Tennessee Marquise Goodwin WR Texas
Goodwin is an absolute speedster, and he can help the Titans run game, by backing the safeties off.
71 Buffalo Brian Winters OG Kent State
The Bills join the trend of doubling up on the offensive line, knowing that it's the quickest way to improving as an overall offense.
72 New York Jets Vince Williams LB Florida State
I'm higher on Williams than most people, and I like him for the Jets. He's an absolute thumper inside, like a better tackling Joe Mays.
73 Tampa Bay Cornelius Washington DE Georgia
Washington has all the talent in the world, but his production was low at Georgia. I think he can be a good pass rush specialist in the NFL, and the fact that he tested so explosively makes the third round a good spot for him.
74 San Francisco Jordan Poyer CB Oregon State
Poyer looked good at the Senior Bowl, and he could compete for snaps with the 49ers.
75 New Orleans David Bakhtiari OT Colorado
The Saints have a lot of bodies at OT, but no sure things as starters. Bakhtiari would be another body, and he has some upside talent if he can get stronger.
76 St. Louis Le'Veon Bell RB Michigan State
Bell would be a nice fit in St. Louis, where he could help to replace Steven Jackson.
77 Miami Travis Kelce TE Cincinnati
If Kelce can learn to be a mature professional, the Dolphins would have a nice starting two-way TE.
78 St. Louis Ace Sanders WR South Carolina
Sanders has slot and return ability, and could help replace Danny Amendola.
79 San Diego Khaled Holmes OC USC
Holmes would add near-term depth, and a possible longer-term starter, to the interior OL mix for the Chargers.
80 Dallas Johnathan Jenkins DT Georgia
Jenkins is a massive scheme-indifferent NT, who can be the 1-technique in the new Tampa-2 scheme that the Cowboys will employ.
81 New York Giants Gavin Escobar TE San Diego State
Escobar is a talented TE prospect, and Mike Pope is allegedly the best TE coach in the NFL. (People say that like it's the gospel of the homie Jesus.)
82 Miami Alex Okafor DE Texas
Okafor isn't a dynamic pass rusher, but he projects as a solid rotational DE. He can absorb some snaps if Jared Odrick gets moved inside.
83 Minnesota Kevin Riddick LB North Carolina
The Vikings have a hole at MLB, and Riddick would be a good candidate to fill that hole.
84 Cincinnati Sanders Commings CB Georgia
Commings is an unusually thick CB, and I like him as a sub package guy for the Bengals.
85 Washington Tharold Simon DB LSU
Simon is tall, long, and skinny. As we remember from the Lenny Walls days, Mike Shanahan likes tall guys at the CB position, if he thinks they can cover at all.
86 Indianapolis Dallas Thomas OG Tennessee
Thomas can be a starting LG in the NFL, and can help shore up Andrew Luck's protection right away.
87 Seattle Mike Gillislee RB Florida
Gillislee is a low-mileage player who can serve as a good backup option for Marshawn Lynch.
88 Green Bay Matt Barkley QB USC
The Packers don't have a legitimate backup QB, and I think that drafting Barkley to be that guy would be a smart play.
89 Houston Brennan Williams OT North Carolina
Williams might be able to win the RT job for the Texans from day 1.
90 Denver Jesse Williams DT Alabama
A big, strong, stout DT for the Broncos, who can use another one of those for their rotation. I don't see great instincts from Williams, but he has good long-term potential.
91 New England Barrett Jones OL Alabama
The Patriots love versatility, and Jones can serve as a good backup at all five OL positions.
92 Atlanta Phillip Thomas FS Fresno State
Thomas can be a good special-teams contributor now, and could be a solid backfill plan if the Falcons lose Thomas DeCoud as a free agent.
93 Buffalo Jonathan Bostic LB Florida
The 49ers trade out for a 2014 2nd rounder, and the Bills get a player who could start at MLB for them in their new scheme.
94 Baltimore Stedman Bailey WR West Virginia
Bailey could help ease the loss of Anquan Boldin, with his solid possession skills.
95 Houston Brandon Williams DT Missouri Southern
Big, stout NT type for the Texans.
96 Kansas City Matt Scott QB Arizona
I don't think the Chiefs view Alex Smith as a stop-gap, given what they gave up for him, but it's definitely appropriate to get a developmental prospect to work with behind him.
97 Tennessee Sio Moore LB Connecticut
Moore is a quality LB, who could challenge to start before long with the Titans.
