We’re back with another edition of NFL mock draft: Mocking the mocks. This time, what if only players selected in Day 3 since 2010 were available?

Tyreek Hill. 1. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. WR. West Alabama. 57

With the Bears already having Justin Fields, they give him an elite weapon. Nobody has been more dynamic than Hill since entering the league in 2016.

QB. 10. Pick Analysis. 2. player. Scouting Report. Ole Miss. Dak Prescott

Prescott would be a perfect fit in Houston, which desperately needs a quarterback who can helm this floundering franchise.

Richard Sherman. 3. player. 32. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. CB. Stanford

The Cardinals are in need of a complete rebuild defensively. Sherman would be a cornerstone in the secondary.

Antonio Brown. 4. player. 46. Pick Analysis. Western Michigan. Scouting Report. WR

The nonsense with Brown is a problem, but this is fantasyland, where that’s not a concern. Brown’s talent warrants this high of a selection.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 45. EDGE. Eastern Michigan. Maxx Crosby. 5. player

Crosby on the Broncos? Raiders fans won’t like it, but he’s a great replacement — and an upgrade — after trading Bradley Chubb.

Colorado. 6. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. OT. David Bakhtiari. 51

If the Rams want Matthew Stafford to play a few more quality years, they must protect him. Bakhtiari is an ideal left tackle.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. QB. Michigan State. 7. player. 28. Kirk Cousins

The Raiders need a quarterback after moving on from Derek Carr, and while Cousins has the same ceiling, he would be coming in on a rookie deal.

Stefon Diggs. 8. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. WR. Maryland. 44

One year after taking Drake London in the first round, the Falcons continue building their arsenal with Diggs. Add in Kyle Pitts, and that’s a lethal trio.

S. Kam Chancellor. player. 87. Scouting Report. Virginia Tech. 9. Pick Analysis

Putting Chancellor in a secondary with Jaycee Horn? Sign me up. Carolina would be building a nice core on the defensive side.

Iowa. George Kittle. player. 15. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. TE. 10

Kittle gives the Saints something at tight end they haven’t had since Jimmy Graham: a play-making tight end.

DT. Georgia. Geno Atkins. 11. player. Scouting Report. 35. Pick Analysis

Tennessee loves to win in the trenches under head coach Mike Vrabel, and in his prime, Atkins was an All-Pro defensive tackle.

Pick Analysis. EDGE. USC. Everson Griffen. Scouting Report. 12. player. 53

The Browns need someone far better than Jadeveon Clowney playing opposite of Myles Garrett. This fixes that problem.

Jason Kelce. 30. Cincinnati. Pick Analysis. C. 13. player. Scouting Report

New York is trying to build up its offense, and having a future Hall of Fame center in the pivot would be ideal for whoever starts at quarterback in 2023.

player. Pick Analysis. Grand Valley State. 14. EDGE. Matt Judon. 47. Scouting Report

Judon to the Patriots? Novel concept. The Patriots love their edge rushers, and Judon is one of then best going.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. DT. Clemson. player. Grady Jarrett. 15. 49

Can you imagine Jarrett next to Kenny Clark on the Packers’ interior? Filthy. He’d give Green Bay the ability to collapse any pocket.

Georgia Tech. Darren Waller. Scouting Report. TE. player. 58. Pick Analysis. 16

Waller has proven one of the most athletic tight ends in the game, and paired with Logan Thomas, would give Washington a couple of great red zone targets.

player. 55. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Coastal Carolina. 17. CB. Josh Norman

The Steelers need to find a corner, and at his peak, Norman commanded a $75 million deal. He was one of the best for a period.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Za'Darius Smith. 18. player. EDGE. Kentucky. 50

The Lions are in need of continued improvement on the defensive side. Aidan Hutchinson is developing into a star, but adding Smith on the other edge would be a steal at No. 18.

USC. Talanoa Hufanga. 19. 48. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. S. player

Hufunga is only this low because he’s two years into his career and we don’t know the arc yet, but he has a chance to make a litany of Pro Bowls.

UTSA. Tariq Woolen. 20. player. CB. 36. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

Woolen to the Seahawks? That worked out nicely. And like Hufanga, the ceiling is phenomenal.

Ohio State. Corey Linsley. C. 21. player. 59. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

Miami needs to continue improving up front, and Linsley is an All-Pro center who can anchor the line.

Pick Analysis. Iowa. 22. player. 13. Scouting Report. DT. Mike Daniels

The Chargers need to get tougher at defensive tackle, and Daniels provides some beef next to Sebastian Joseph-Day.

G. 23. 26. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Virginia Tech. Wyatt Teller. player

Teller gives the Ravens something they always covet; size and toughness. He’d be a mauler in Baltimore’s scheme.

24. Scouting Report. Iowa. Micah Hyde. 60. Pick Analysis. S. player

Anybody with talent and who plays defense is a fit in Minnesota. Hyde is an All-Pro level safety with versatility.

Scouting Report. EDGE. Florida State. player. Pick Analysis. Josh Sweat. 25. 52

The Jaguars’ leading sack artist this year? Josh Allen with six. Sweat would be a nice upgrade on the edge opposite Allen.

Ryan Jensen. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. C. CSU Pueblo. 26. 31

The Giants have their tackles moving forward, but can improve inside. Jensen is an All-Pro with an edge.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Oregon State. S. Jordan Poyer. 27. player. 123

The Cowboys are likely going to lose talent this offseason from their secondary. Adding Poyer would be enormous for that room.

Georgia. 56. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. S. Reshad Jones. 28. player

Jones is the safety the Bengals need to replace Jessie Bates, while Dax Hill continues getting time to develop.

Scouting Report. EDGE. Ole Miss. Greg Hardy. Pick Analysis. 29. player. 42

Again, we’re in fantasyland. Just looking at football. Hardy was a tremendous pass rusher in his prime and would give San Francisco another problem for teams to deal with.

Scouting Report. 16. Pick Analysis. LB. Mississippi State. K.J. Wright. 30. player

If the Bills lose Tremaine Edmunds this offseason, Wright would be a nice replacement. He was a stalwart for years with the Seahawks.

Pick Analysis. Alabama. Eddie Jackson. 31. player. Scouting Report. S. 124

Jackson has been uneven at times through his career, but pairing him with Justin Reid would be sublime. He’d slide in for Juan Thornhill, who is hitting free agency.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. FB. Harvard. 32. 54. Kyle Juszczyk. player

A first-round fullback? Damn straight. Juszczyk is a valuable chess piece who would give the Eagles a ton of options.
