Players Drafted on Day 3 That Will Make an Impact
Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida - I wish there were a place you could bet on which player would have the better career. I would take the odds on Hernandez over first rounder Jermaine Gresham. A steal wherever he gets picked from here on out.
Joe McKnight, RB / Everson Griffen, DE, USC - Will Pete Carroll pick one or both of his former players in Round 4? They each make sense for Seattle.
Ricky Sapp, DE, Clemson - Explosive pass-rusher dealing with injury. He was in the first round discussion all year.
Dorin Dickerson, TE, Pitt - Physical freak. Look at these Combine numbers here, here, here, and here.
Jon Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech - A lock for the first round entering 2009, Dwyer struggled a bit while playing second fiddle to Josh(ua) Nesbitt. A failed drug test did not help matters but certainly a chance worth taking on Day 3.
Dekoda Watson, LB, Florida State - A chiseled specimen, Watson figures to be a bankrupt man's Lawrence Timmons. Not bad for Round 5 or later.
Mr. Irrelevant: Jevan Snead - After a brutal junior campaign, he did little to impress at the Combine and individual workouts. Snead found himself atop the first 2010 mock draft I did back in April of 2009. It would only be fitting if he turned out to be the last pick of the draft.
