2016 NFL Draft: Round 3

2016 NFL Draft
Pick Team Player Shutdown Corner Commentary
33 (96) New England
Vincent Valentine
DT
Height:
6-4
Weight:
329
School:
Nebraska

An uninspiring pick. Valentine has shown flashes in college but has not dominated and passed up another year of eligibility despite an incomplete career for the Huskers that was marred by injury. He’s not laterally quick and doesn’t always maximize his power, but he has good mass that the Patriots seek inside. Grade: C-

34 (97) Seattle Rees Odhiambo
Rees Odhiambo
OG
Height:
6-4
Weight:
314
School:
Boise State
Rotoworld Rank:
67

Odhiambo might have been a top-50 pick had injuries not derailed his career. If you stack up the best tape of him and Germain Ifedi, you won’t notice a ton of variation. Odhiambo is smart, tough and powerful and can play at a number of spots — just like the Seahawks like them. They’ve had a nice little draft. Grade: B+

35 (98) Denver Justin Simmons
Justin Simmons
FS
Height:
6-2
Weight:
202
School:
Boston College
Rotoworld Rank:
70

With some great testing numbers at the scouting combine and a great frame, Simmons is a fascinating prospect. Think former Broncos S Rahim Moore, who has started games in the NFL but also bounced around and never played at a high level. Simmons might project similarly. Grade: C
