Top 20 players available on Day 3 of NFL Draft
With two days down in the 2021 NFL draft the Chicago Bears did most of the wheeling and dealing that they could possibly do and landed on two of the best options they could have landed on. Of course, now on day three there are less viable options but the Bears do have four draft picks, so there will be a chance to address needs.
Who are some of the best players left in the 2021 NFL draft that fit a need for the Chicago Bears?
1. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
It Is somewhat surprising to see St. Brown still on the board, but between his struggles, last season on the outside, and his slow pro day, the fall for him was on. Now, St. Brown is going from the point where he had questions to where he is worth a flier.
2. Stone Forsythe, LT, Florida
The best tackle left is clearly the one who has had SEC battles, and despite his size, has excellent feet. He is a project, but a high upside one.
3. Brenden Jamies, LT, Nebraska
Jamies does not have the length needed for most NFL tackles and could kick inside to guard. Still Liam Eichenberg had the same issue and fell into round two. Picture Jamies as the discount Eichenber.
4. Tommy Doyle, LT, Miami OH
Tommy Doyle is one of the most athletic tackles in the draft and is a stud in pass pro. Of course, he was aided by living against the MAC.
5. Trey Smith, G, Tennessee
Smith was once considered a first-round prospect. Word is the medicals are causing this fall.
6. Deonte Brown. G, Alabama
This is a large human being, but he can really move for his size. Do not be scared off this late.
7. Rashad Weaver, EDGE, Pitt
Weaver is technically sound and quick. Do not be surprised when he outplays his draft stock.
8. Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
A former first-round pick two years ago has fallen this far with multiple knee issues.
9. Jabril Cox, LB, LSU
Cox transferred to LSU and excelled, so teams may be turned off by the medicals. Still, this is a great coverage linebacker.
10. Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
You almost expect the Bears to draft this small school outside cornerback.
11. Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State
As an in-the-box safety hybrid linebacker, this player could be a nice Deon Bush competition.
12. Jamar Johnson, S, Indiana
Jamar Johnson plays similar to HaHa Clinton-Dix, so we know he fits next to Eddie Jackson.
13. Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
Wallace has to be falling due to his medical evaluation. Still, he is explosive and would be fun.
14. Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
Seth Williams has a lot of upside, as we highlighted here.
15. Drew Dahlman, C, Stanford
The Stanford center could be an eventual starter.
16. Jalen Darden, WR, North Texas
Jalen Darden is a speedster in the realm of Darnell Mooney.
17. Royce Newman, LT, Ole Miss
Newman is a do-everything lineman who could bounce around and play multiple spots.
18. Jaylon Moore, LT, Western Michigan
This small school lineman has the ability to play guard and tackle.
19. ArDarius Washington, CB
Washington is small and had a bad pro day, but you cannot teach his instincts.
20. Elerson Smith, EDGE, Northern Iowa
Smith is from a small school but his athletic upside screams a role player who can get after the passer.
