NFL Draft: Day Three Open Thread

| May 2nd, 2015


Three of the four players I profiled last week – Nick O’Leary, Jalston Fowler & Nick Perry – are still available for the Chicago Bears on day three of the draft. Who else of note is available?

  • Two of the safeties I thought would be gone on day two – Josh Shaw and Adrian Amos – are still on the board. Both are potential NFL starters in 2015. Since I posted some Shaw video yesterday, here’s Amos:

  • People seemed surprised Pittsburgh offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings fell out of the FIRST ROUND and now he’s available on the third day? Is a stress fracture in a player’s foot really enough to drop a guy 2-3 rounds? The league may end up looking remarkably short-sighted if this kid develops into the nasty tackle he’s projected to become.
  • Jay Ajayi (Boise) is one of the best backs in this class and even he was surprised to fall out of the first three rounds. (CLICK HERE to see his response on Twitter.) Someone is getting a terrific back with a chip on his shoulder.

Should be an interesting day for the Chicago Bears. While they shouldn’t reach for positions of need I would be shocked if they didn’t address the secondary today in a substantial way.
