My Favorite Picks Of Day 3

1. Amon-Ra St Brown WR USC to the Lions at pick 112

The Rams protected Jared Goff in round 1, In Day 2 they improved the defense, now they finally get Goff his receiver. The Lions can’t go into next year with Breshad Perriman, Tyrell Williams and Quintez Cephus as they’re top receivers. St Brown can definitely make an impact this year, St Brown is crazy athletic and a walking big play threat. One thing coaches rave about when it comes to St Brown is he has great football IQ and is crazy smart. I’m not going to doubt that St Brown speaks 3 different languages fluently (French, German and English). 

2. Jabril Cox LB LSU to the Cowboys at pick 115

The Cowboys defense was nothing short of terrible last year and Jaylon Smith was a big contributor to that terrible defense last year. If Smith doesn’t step it up next year it wouldn’t surprise me if they got rid of Smith next year. I had a second round grade on Cox, Dallas got him in the fourth round so this is some great value for them. 

3. Jaelon Durden WR North Texas to the Buccaneers at pick 129

Durden might not get significant playing time this year, but if Chris Godwin and/or if Antonio Brown doesn’t return Durden will get more playing time. Durden is a lot like DeSean Jackson, a former Buccaneer. Durden is an explosive yards after catch receiver who will make plays and create yards after 

the catch.

4. Ihmir Smith-Marsette WR Iowa to the Vikings at pick 157

Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Ihmir Smith-Marsette sounds good to me. The Vikings third receiver was Olabisi Johnson and he below average this year, Ihmir Smith-Marsette gives this team such a good big 3 now it might not be like Evans, Godwin, Brown but it’s still better than a lot of team’s top 3 receivers.

5. Daviyon Nixon IDL Iowa to the Panthers at pick 158

Carolina released Kawann Short and haven’t found a replacement, but they just have replaced him. Nixon is a great athlete with great change of direction skills. One of Nixon’s only real knock is he neutralized by double teams, but with Derrick Brown right across from him I think it’s safe to say he won’t be doubled teamed much. 

6. Jamar Johnson S Indiana to the Broncos at pick 164

Jarmar Johnson plays a lot like Former Rams and current Browns safety John Johnson. I think that’s something that’s really missing from the Broncos defense. I expect him to play when the Broncos put 3 safeties on the field and other than that he’ll sit behind Kareem Jackson for a year and probably make an impact on that defense mostly next year. 

7. Demetric Felton WR/RB UCLA to the Browns at pick 211

Kevin Stefanksi can do some much with Felton it’s crazy. Stefanski can have him run the football, play slot receiver, take jet-sweeps, you name it he’ll do it. 

8. Dazz Newsome WR North Carolina to the Bears at pick 221

I don’t know why Newsome fell this far, I had a third round grade on this guy. Newsome has great elusiveness and changes direction on the drop of a dime. I really liked Newsome with there being uncertainty if allen robinson will come back after this year Anthony Miller and Marquise Godwin are 

9. Trey Smith IOL Texas to the Chiefs at pick 226

Trey Smith should have been a second round pick, but because there’s always a but Smith had blood clotting in his lungs in 2018. He took blood thinners and was able to eventually return. Smith told NFL teams during the pre-draft process that this could be a recurring issue. Even though Smith had second round tape, he fell to the thief round. Hopefully he can stay healthy and continue to compete in the NFL.

10. Jake Funk RB Maryland to the Rams at pick 233

I love this pick by the Rams. Funk reminds me a lot of Rex Burkhead he’ll do whatever you want him to. Jake Funk absolutely loves the game of football as an under recruited prospect coming out of Damascus high school, he only had to D-1 offers one from Maryland to a RB and another from Wisconsin to be a LB. Funk went to Maryland and never really got to play he tore ACL not once but twice. Funk finally was able to get some playing time this year and took an advantage of it.
