Round 3 1 (63) Kansas City Chiefs Travis Kelce(video) TE 6'6 260 Cincinnati
Travis Kelce

National Football Post: Because current tight end Tony Moeaki has struggled to stay healthy and establish himself in the NFL, the Chiefs nab Kelce to give them an option who can catch passes and make big plays. While he is not a big tight end, he is a quick and athletic one who can run away from man coverage and make tough catches consistently. He should challenge for playing time as a rookie.

Round 3 2 (64) Jacksonville Jaguars Dwayne Gratz CB 6'0 198 Connecticut
Dwayne Gratz

National Football Post: The Jaguars continue to add talent with the selection of Gratz. A quick and fluid athlete who can change directions in a flash, Gratz has consistently shown the ability to close quickly and make plays on the ball. Unlike many college cornerbacks, Gratz shows no hesitation in putting his hands on receivers in press coverage, and he will maintain contact to reroute receivers and break up passes. While not a big name, he should challenge for a starting spot in 2013.

Round 3 3 (65) Detroit Lions Larry Warford(video) G 6'3 343 Kentucky
Larry Warford

National Football Post: The Lions finally address their offensive line, but address their hole at right guard instead of the media's perceived need at left tackle. While Warford doesn't possess the quick feet of some guards taken in Round One, he is one of the most physically dominant at the point of attack. He possesses elite strength and punching ability, and will be as productive in pass protection as he will be in the run game.

Round 3 4 (66) Oakland Raiders Sio Moore LB 6'2 229 Connecticut
Sio Moore

National Football Post: The Raiders get an athletic linebacker in Moore, whose best trait is his ability to rush the passer and chase down plays in pursuit. A highly competitive player, Moore is constantly around the ball and makes a lot of plays through sheer effort and determination. He is going to need work on his coverage ability to become a well-rounded linebacker, but with his athleticism he should develop enough to eventually challenge for a starting role.

Round 3 5 (67) Philadelphia Eagles Bennie Logan(video) DT 6'3 295 LSU
Bennie Logan

National Football Post: The Eagles wanted to add playmakers, but they take a big gamble on Logan. He is a strong and athletic defensive tackle who flashed potential in college, but more often than not he got upright and lost leverage at the snap, got tied up and did not make as many plays as he could. This is a classic potential pick as Logan has much more talent and potential than he showed at LSU.

Round 3 6 (68) Cleveland Browns Leon McFadden(video) CB 5'10 190 San Diego State
Leon McFadden

National Football Post: McFadden is excellent value at this stage and is much more than just a Cover 2 corner that he's been pegged as. He does an outstanding job of keeping the play in front of him, and looks smooth and explosive transitioning forward. McFadden is the perfect complement to Cleveland's top corner, Joe Haden.

Round 3 7 (69) Arizona Cardinals Tyrann Mathieu(video) CB 5'9 175 LSU
Tyrann Mathieu

National Football Post: The Cardinals make a bold and extremely risky choice in Mathieu. No one will deny that Mathieu is an explosive athlete who can make game-changing plays with the ball in his hands. However, he is a short cornerback who is raw and needs work on his footwork and technique. Most importantly, the Cardinals are likely banking on current cornerback Patrick Peterson's close relationship with Mathieu to help keep him out of trouble.

Round 3 8 (70) Tennessee Titans Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB 6'2 190 Connecticut
Blidi Wreh-Wilson

National Football Post: Tennessee continues to add top talent with the addition of the underrated Wreh-Wilson. He is an excellent athlete with smooth hips and the physical ability to control receivers at the point of attack. He could work his way into a starting role as a rookie, making him an excellent value in Round Three.

Round 3 9 (71) St. Louis Rams T.J. McDonald(video) FS 6'3 205 USC
T.J. McDonald

National Football Post: The Rams make a risky pick with McDonald, who is a far better athlete than football player. For an athlete with his size, strength and natural ability, McDonald does not compete hard on every snap and too often seems content to let his teammates make the tackle when he is near the play. It would be surprising if McDonald turns out to be a good starting safety.

Note: from Bills
Round 3 10 (72) New York Jets Brian Winters(video) G 6'5 310 Kent State
Brian Winters

National Football Post: The Jets make a smart move in selecting Winters, who will likely play right tackle or guard for them. An underrated athlete, Winters has good feet, can bend his knees to block with a solid base and is effective blocking in space. Most impressive is Winters' rare competitiveness: He blocks with great passion and intensity on every snap.

Round 3 11 (73) Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mike Glennon(video) QB 6'6 232 North Carolina State
Mike Glennon

National Football Post: The heat is clearly on Josh Freeman this year as Tampa selects his potential successor. While Glennon is a wildly inconsistent passer who makes too many bad decisions, he has an elite arm and is capable of making every NFL throw. The Bucs have positioned themselves well this offseason to compete in the NFC South in 2013, and with this pick they have a clear contingency plan for the future.

Round 3 12 (74) Dallas Cowboys Terrance Williams(video) WR 6'2 205 Baylor
Terrance Williams

National Football Post: With WR talents such as Keenan Allen and Quinton Patton still on the board, it's shocking to see the Cowboys opt for Williams. Williams is an explosive vertical threat, but he has not shown the ability to run the full route tree and struggles to beat press coverage. He does not run crisp routes over the middle and displays inconsistent hands. Dallas has the weapons to operate inside, so expect Williams to almost exclusively work the vertical routes on the perimeter.

Note: from Panthers through 49ers
Round 3 13 (75) New Orleans Saints Terron Armstead T 6'5 306 Arkansas-Pine Bluff
Terron Armstead

National Football Post: The Saints address a major need with Armstead, a potential starting left tackle. Armstead's technique is inconsistent and he clearly needs to improve his core strength, but he displays an outstanding ability to shuffle and redirect on the edge. Armstead will likely serve as the understudy to Charles Brown as a rookie, but don't be surprised to see him develop into an NFL starter on the blind side.

Round 3 14 (76) San Diego Chargers Keenan Allen(video) WR 6'3 210 California
Keenan Allen

National Football Post: The Chargers select what could be the steal of the draft in Allen. Before injuring his knee and running poorly in the 40, Allen was viewed as a definite first-round pick with top 10 potential. His situation is similar to current 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin, who slid to the second round after running a 4.73 at the Combine. Boldin turned out to be an excellent receiver. Do not be surprised if Allen is one of the most productive receivers selected in this draft.

Round 3 15 (77) Miami Dolphins Dallas Thomas(video) G 6'5 310 Tennessee
Dallas Thomas

National Football Post: The Dolphins make a good selection by grabbing one of the most physical and aggressive offensive linemen in the draft. A starter at left tackle and left guard during his career, Thomas has the versatility that NFL teams love. He is quick setting up to block, delivers a hard punch and can control his man at the point of attack. He should turn out to be a good starting guard who can fill in at tackle when needed.

Round 3 16 (78) Buffalo Bills Marquise Goodwin(video) WR 5'9 180 Texas
Marquise Goodwin

National Football Post: Buffalo is clearly committed to revamping its offense, with Goodwin being its second WR selection of the day. An unpolished route runner, Goodwin possesses world-class speed and explosiveness. He will have the perfect role for him as the No. 3 man in Buffalo behind Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods.

Note: from Rams
Round 3 17 (79) Pittsburgh Steelers Markus Wheaton(video) WR 6'1 182 Oregon State
Markus Wheaton

National Football Post: Wheaton should come in and contribute as a rookie. A smart receiver who runs excellent routes, Wheaton hides his routes until the break, which allows him to consistently get separation. Combined with great hands, Wheaton should immediately earn playing time with the Steelers and could be the long-term replacement for Emmanuel Sanders, who is playing on a one-year contract.

Round 3 18 (80) Dallas Cowboys J.J. Wilcox FS 6'0 215 Georgia Southern
J.J. Wilcox

National Football Post: Wilcox played receiver until his senior season at Georgia Southern, so the Cowboys will need to be patient as he continues to learn the safety position. For not having much experience on the defensive side of the ball, he is an effective player against the run and takes strong angles in pursuit. He is not an instinctive player in coverage at this stage, and he must learn how to read and attack routes in front of him before he can start at the NFL level.

Round 3 19 (81) New York Giants Damontre Moore DE 6'4 250 Texas A&M
Damontre Moore

National Football Post: With Osi Umenyiora now a Falcon and Justin Tuck coming off a down year, the Giants grab Moore, a strong, power rusher who competes hard on every snap. Not an explosive off-the-ball pass rusher, Moore gets by with technique, effort and strength. He should be a good backup in 2013 with the potential to be more down the road.

Round 3 20 (82) New Orleans Saints Jonathan Jenkins(video) DT 6'3 358 Georgia
Jonathan Jenkins

National Football Post: The Saints are transitioning to a 3-4 defense, so it is no surprise to see them select a true nose tackle this early in the draft. Jenkins must improve his conditioning, but he possesses the natural strength and leverage to control the line of scrimmage and surprising foot quickness for a man his size. The Saints are doing an excellent job filling glaring holes on a historically awful defense with players that also present good value.

Note: from Bears through Dolphins
Round 3 21 (83) New England Patriots Logan Ryan(video) CB 6'0 190 Rutgers
Logan Ryan

National Football Post: Logan Ryan lacks the quick-twitch explosiveness to consistently stay with receivers downfield, but his fundamentals and instincts make him an effective corner in Cover 2 situations. Ryan is also an excellent tackler on the edge, but may struggle to develop into a starter because of his athletic limitations.

Note: from Vikings
Round 3 22 (84) Cincinnati Bengals Shawn Williams(video) SS 6'1 217 Georgia
Shawn Williams

National Football Post: The Bengals make an interesting selection in Williams. He is a good athlete who was constantly around the ball at Goergia, but he did not make a lot of big plays. He is however an outstanding character kid who is smart, instinctive and a true leader, which should help him become a solid all-around starter for the Bengals.

Round 3 23 (85) Washington Redskins Jordan Reed(video) TE 6'3 243 Florida
Jordan Reed

National Football Post: Reed probably won't line up on the line of scrimmage very often, but he is a dynamic athlete that is too big for safeties and too explosive for linebackers to take him on in man coverage. He is also a very aggressive runner after the catch and will be a dangerous weapon for star QB Robert Griffin III.

Round 3 24 (86) Indianapolis Colts Hugh Thornton(video) G 6'5 310 Illinois
Hugh Thornton

National Football Post: The Colts continue their strong draft by selecting Thornton. An extremely strong player, he can drive defenders off the line and stop power rushers in their tracks. Impressive for such a strong player, Thornton can also get to the second level fast and is a good blocker out in space. Thornton should start at guard for the Colts in 2013 and become a mainstay on their offensive line.

Round 3 25 (87) Seattle Seahawks Jordan Hill DT 6'1 292 Penn State
Jordan Hill

National Football Post: Once again the Seahawks show a willingness to draft a very good college player who does not fit the ideal height parameters. Hill is a very good athlete with the quickness, competitiveness and hands to defeat blocks and get backfield penetration. This is a quality pick, even though Hill is most likely going to be an excellent, versatile backup who can spell all of the Seahawks' big defensive linemen.

Round 3 26 (88) San Francisco 49ers Corey Lemonier(video) OLB 6'4 246 Auburn
Corey Lemonier

National Football Post: The addition of a quality player such as Lemonier this late in the draft is stunning. Lemonier is not a polished player against the run, but he is highly competitive and one of the most innately explosive pass rushers in the draft. The 49ers are clearly one of the big winners today after scoring two pass-rushing talents with first-round grades.

Note: from Packers
Round 3 27 (89) Houston Texans Brennan Williams(video) T 6'7 310 North Carolina

National Football Post: The Texans reach a little bit by selecting Williams. A big offensive tackle with good short-area quickness and natural strength, Williams can be a very good blocker when he blocks with a solid base and maintains good technique. However, he has a bad habit of stopping his feet and overextending to maintain contact, which leads to him falling off blocks and ending up on the ground way too often for a player with his talent.

Round 3 28 (90) Denver Broncos Kayvon Webster CB 5'11 198 South Florida
Kayvon Webster

National Football Post: Webster is very good in press coverage because he has the bulk and competitiveness to reroute receivers and take away inside leverage. However, despite displaying good speed, he lacks the explosiveness to consistently close off the ball and does not appear instinctive in zone situations. He enters the perfect situation in Denver, as he will have the chance to learn the position from one of the all-time greats in Champ Bailey.

Round 3 29 (91) New England Patriots Duron Harmon DB 6'1 200 Rutgers
Duron Harmon

National Football Post: As is often the case, the Patriots draft a player who surprises many. A good college player, Harmon did not show the foot quickness, agility or all-around athleticism to be effective in deep coverage. He is a competitive player who hustles all over the field and makes a lot of tackles, but he will need to prove he has the athleticism to handle playing in coverage if he is ever going to be more than a backup.

Round 3 30 (92) St. Louis Rams Stedman Bailey(video) WR 5'10 195 West Virginia
Stedman Bailey

National Football Post: This pick will likely be the talk of the day as Bailey joins his former Mountaineers teammate Tavon Austin in St. Louis. While not as innately explosive as Austin, Bailey is an excellent route runner who always seems to separate in space. Sam Bradford is at his best when he can deliver the ball underneath and let his receivers do the work, and Bailey is another talent who will allow him to do just that.

Note: from Falcons
Round 3 31 (93) Miami Dolphins Will Davis(video) CB 6'0 186 Utah State
Will Davis

National Football Post: The Dolphins make a bold move to trade up to acquire Davis, who has starting talent but struggled through an up-and-down 2012 season. The Dolphins are taking a gamble that they can get Davis to play up to his previous level. If he gets back to his 2011 form, the Dolphins could have themselves a good starting cornerback, which makes this risk worthwhile.

Note: from 49ers through Packers
Round 3 32 (94) Baltimore Ravens Brandon Williams DT 6'2 330 Missouri Southern State
Brandon Williams

National Football Post: The Ravens missed on nose tackle Terrance Cody, so they needed to find a player who can handle that role. Williams is a short, stocky defensive tackle with the strength to be an anchor at the point of attack. He will never be an explosive, playmaking DT, but he has what it takes to become a solid starting nose tackle with a season of development.

Round 3 32 (94) Baltimore Ravens Brandon Williams DT 6'2 330 Missouri Southern State
Brandon Williams

National Football Post: The Ravens missed on nose tackle Terrance Cody, so they needed to find a player who can handle that role. Williams is a short, stocky defensive tackle with the strength to be an anchor at the point of attack. He will never be an explosive, playmaking DT, but he has what it takes to become a solid starting nose tackle with a season of development.

Round 3 33 (95) Houston Texans Sam Montgomery(video) DE 6'5 260 LSU
Sam Montgomery

National Football Post: While Montgomery is not a dynamic, explosive pass rusher, he is a great value pick. A strong and physical defensive end at LSU, he will likely be a power outside linebacker in Houston's 3-4 scheme. He is a smart, instinctive and very competitve player who probably will back up the Texans' current outside linebackers, but in time could work himself into a starting spot.

Note: compensatory selection
Round 3 34 (96) Kansas City Chiefs Knile Davis RB 6'0 226 Arkansas
Knile Davis

National Football Post: An immense physical talent, the Chiefs take a gamble that they can turn Davis into a quality NFL back. Davis is a dynamic talent who gets to full speed in a flash and has the ability to score long touchdowns. The issue is that he has been injured numerous times and has not shown the toughness to battle through. Also concerning is that he does not protect the ball and fumbles way too often. If he does not improve his ball security, he has no chance of becoming a contributing back in the NFL.

Note: compensatory selection
Round 3 35 (97) Tennessee Titans Zaviar Gooden(video) OLB 6'2 230 Missouri
Zaviar Gooden

National Football Post: Gooden is an outstanding athlete for the linebacker position, but will need to become significantly more physical at the point of attack before he can be considered anything more than a special-teams player. While he has the range to play sideline to sideline against the run and pass, he consistently shies away from contact and at times seems to go out of his way to avoid blockers. At this stage his value is fair; don't expect to see him starting as a rookie.

Note: compensatory selection
