2018 NFL Draft Day Three Top of The Mock Projections

NFL Draft Bible Founder Ric Serritella, projects what the top 10 selections on day three of the 2018 NFL Draft could look like.

  1. Carolina (from Cleveland via Green Bay): Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State – A big back who can fill the void created by the departure of Jonathan Stewart and serve as an additional threat catching the ball out of the backfield.
  2. Minnesota (from NY Giants via Tampa Bay): Jamarco Jones, OL, Ohio State – After stabilizing the outside of the offensive line with the selection of Brian O’Neil, solidifying the interior should be atop the Vikings agenda on day three.
  3. Houston: Marcus Allen, FS, Penn State – The physical Allen would pair well with Tyrann Mathieu in the secondary to create a formidable safety duo and help cement the middle of the Texans defense.
  4. Indianapolis: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame – The Colts are long overdue to provide quarterback Andrew Luck with a playmaker on the perimeter; E.Q. could thrive playing opposite of T.Y. Hilton.
  5. New England (from Chicago): Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana – It’s no secret that the Patriots like to employ a double-tight end system, featuring two pass-catching threats and Thomas fits the bill here.
  6. Denver: Genard Avery, ILB, Memphis – A plug and play type of talent who would provide an upgrade at the inside backer position, playing alongside Brandon Marshall.
  7. NY Jets: Josh Sweat, OLB, Florida State – The Jets need someone capable of getting after the quarterback on the edge and Sweat possesses the potential to develop into an effective pass-rusher.
  8. NY Giants (from Tampa Bay): Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon – This move would help facilitate the expenditure of Ereck Flowers and fill a major need.
  9. Washington (from San Francisco thru Denver): Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama – Depth in the secondary is needed and Averett has flashed starting caliber traits during his Crimson Tide career.
  10. Oakland: Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan – The Raiders brass has shown they’re not afraid to roll the dice and this is a small gamble that can pay huge dividends.
