NFL Draft Bible Founder Ric Serritella, projects what the top 10 selections on day three of the 2018 NFL Draft could look like.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- NY Giants (from Tampa Bay): Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon – This move would help facilitate the expenditure of Ereck Flowers and fill a major need.
- 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.
- 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.
