The best of the rest

This has been reported to be one of the deepest drafts in years. Through three rounds, we have seen an even 100 players drafted. With 256 more players to be drafted, who is left on the board? The answer is "a lot". There have been plenty of top players drafted from the fourth round down. When I was with Chicago, we drafted Nate Vasher in the 4th round and Johnny Knox in the 5th round. Both went to the Pro Bowl. Seatttle's Richard Sherman went in the 5th round. That said, here is a list by position of some of the top players who could get drafted today.
