10 third-day picks who can make an immediate result


After every household name disappears off the draft board -- an occurrence that always happens somewhere after round three to the casual football fan -- most of us tend to think all of those other picks don't matter. Of course, we're reminded how untrue that may be every regular season if a late-drafted gem emerges from nowhere to take over a starting part in training camp. The madden mobile coins will help you in the Madden NFL mobile.

Here are a couple of players picked on Day 3 on the 2017 NFL Draft that might be able to do the same:

1. Marlon Mack, running back, Indianapolis Colts (Southern region Florida)

As NFL Network analyzer Bucky Brooks previously observed, USF record-holder Marlon Mack gets the best chance to probably pull a Jordan Howard this year and leave nowhere. Heading to the Colts, he could easily nestle into a role where he's sharing snaps while using now-33 (and soon to become 34-year-old) Frank Gore. The Colts played it fast and loose with Gore's backups not too long ago, especially when it found a dependable, pass-catching option on 3rd down. As one scout instructed the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Mack is more of any spread-type of running returning anyway, but has the frame and capacity to thrive at the future level.

2. Samaje Perine, running back, Washington Redskins (Oklahoma)

With Matt Jones around the trading block, Perine can come in and be the second of a pair of formidable big boys inside Washington's backfield. While he is smaller than 2016 leading-rusher Robert Kelley, scouting reports, like the one acquired by the great Bob McGinn on the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, suggest Perine seems to hold himself heavy on your field. After nearly scoring 50 touchdowns during his time with the Sooners (with Joe Mixon about the roster) it might just be time for Perine to shine by himself again.

3. Jake Butt, tight end, Denver Broncos* (Michigan)
An ESPN report encouraged that Butt could reach the field by Sept, which could mean weekly 6 return after a stint on the PUP list. I don't see much obtaining it Butt's way, especially if he stays true to and picks up the offense quickly. This is a system which could suit his style very well -- and a team who could use dependable, intermediate options for their young quarterbacks. Of course, injury projections are still difficult this time of the year, especially when the harm occurred so recently (Buttocks tore his ACL from the Orange Bowl). Hence, the asterisk.

4. Adam Bisnowaty, offensive tackle, New York Giants (Pittsburgh)
A very late-round pick, but still the very first offensive linemen taken through the protection- starved New york giants in this draft. General manager Jerry Reese informed reporters on Saturday that Bisnowaty will receive a chance at the tackle position together with Bobby Hart and D. J. Fluker. A long shot? Perhaps, but stranger things possess happened in training camping.

5. Jake Elliott, kicker, Cincinnati Bengals (Memphis)

A given, seen that the Bengals would likely not waste a fifth-round pick on the camp leg. Cincinnati finished with merely an 82. 9 percent efficiency fee on extra points last year, thanks mostly to five straight games that has a missed extra point by means of Mike Nugent, who is now a free agent. Elliott was a ideal 202/202 on (shorter) extra points in college with a 77. 9 percent field aim rate (80. 8 percent his mature year).

6. Jordan Leggett, tight end, New York Jets (Clemson)
Leggett is on here in simple terms because the Jets haven't any other tight ends who is able to carry the load properly. The team was mocked frequently with Alabama tight conclusion O. J. Howard at No. 6 because of their own dire situation there, but Leggett might be capable of grow into the situation. NFL. com's Lance Zierlein likens him to a young Kellen Davis, which the Jets are hoping is modest. New offensive coordinator and Sean Payton disciple John Morton hopefully had his hands on this selection given that he'll need some stability at the position to make his offense run.

7. Sean Harlow, guard, Atlanta Falcons (Or State)
Harlow, according to the assembled draft analysts within the NFL Network set Saturday, brings a hard-nosed thinking to Atlanta where they could easily compete with the contested guard spot other Andy Levitre. As NFL Network expert Mike Mayock noted through the draft, this is still going becoming a Falcons team that favors running the football primary. Harlow can make guaranteed whoever wins the starting job has no less than arm wrestled for the idea.

8. Jamaal Williams (BYU) and Aaron Jones (Arizona El-Paso), running backs, Green Bay Packers:

Obvious if only because the Packers let their workhorse (Eddie Lacy) depart in free agency and so are still planning on beginning a converted wide phone at tailback. Yes, Ty Montgomery was always more of any running back, but Williams and Jones are hand selected to the system and could help and lend him any hand.

9. Matt Milano, linebacker, Buffalo Bills (Celtics College)
Taking a swing when it reaches this one given that Sean McDermott is installing a brand new system and may want a hand-selected linebacker at the midst of it. Milano is the first linebacker taken in the McDermott era following former Panthers defensive coordinator had lots of success with another linebacker away from Boston College. One Northeast scout instructed NFL. com's Lance Zierlein that Milano reminds him of a smaller Brian Cushing -- or at least plays in that mold. Can he put on some more weight and mix it up?
