    Kiper: Best available players for Day 3

    Top 10 remaining
    1. WR Bruce Ellington*, South Carolina
    The burner from South Carolina has fallen in this draft but would fit well in the slot for many teams.

    2. CB Pierre Desir, Lindenwood
    The small-school standout corner has good size (6-foot-1, 198 pounds) and ball skills. He had 25 interceptions in his college career.

    3. G David Yankey*, Stanford
    Not a dominant guard, Yankey can play in a phone booth. Fit matters for him.

    4. DT DaQuan Jones, Penn State
    Jones has a wide body (6-3, 318) and can hold up at the point of attack. He also does a good job flowing to the ball.

    5. WR Martavis Bryant*, Clemson
    Hidden a bit behind Sammy Watkins at Clemson, Bryant is a good receiver in his own right. He could be a late-round steal.

    6. QB Tom Savage, Pittsburgh
    He has the upside of a starter and can really spin it. He played behind a porous offensive line last season at Pitt.

    7. QB AJ McCarron, Alabama
    There are a lot of split opinions on McCarron. He is accurate on underneath routes and the deep ball despite not having a strong arm.

    8. DT Brent Urban, Virginia
    Urban has great length at 6-5. He has the ability to jolt defenders and both penetrate and disrupt passing lanes with 34-inch arms.

    9. RB De'Anthony Thomas*, Oregon
    Electrifying with the ball in his hands, Thomas will be an offensive weapon for the team that drafts him.

    10. QB Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech
    He has the size and speed of an elite tight end prospect but has accuracy issues as a QB. Still, he's worth a flyer at this point in the draft.

    And Todd McShay

    1. Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina (Grade: 79; Overall rank: 58): He's a competitive receiver with a very good ability to separate and natural hands. He has the speed to be a vertical threat but lacks the size to consistently win battles for 50-50 balls.

    2. AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama (Grade: 78; Overall rank: 60): Very good experience in a pro-style system and touch on short-to-intermediate throws. Has some bad habits with footwork, and deep throws can hang in the air.

    3. Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson (Grade: 76; Overall rank: 66): He has huge potential as a vertical route runner because of his length and top-end speed. Bryant dropped way too many passes in college.

    4. Brent Urban, DT, Virginia (Grade: 76; Overall rank: 67): He's capable of playing defensive tackle or 5-technique defensive end. Has good size, but carries some durability concerns.

    5. Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburgh (Grade: 75; Overall rank: 68): A strong-armed pocket-passer with polished mechanics who is an effortless thrower of the football. Good touch on intermediate routes, although deep-ball accuracy is a concern.

    6. Bashaud Breeland, CB, Clemson (Grade: 75; Overall rank: 70): He is a flexible and fluid athlete for a taller corner with above-average range, although his top-end speed is below average. An aggressive tackler in run support.

    7. Keith McGill, CB, Utah (Grade: 73; Overall rank: 72): He's a potential target for teams looking for big corners, as he measures 6-3, 211. He has above-average range and is best-suited for press-man or zone coverage.

    8. Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood (Grade: 72; Overall rank: 75): He has above-average length and range with a good combination of athleticism, size and leaping ability. Has some tightness, which can be exposed at times in man coverage. Very good ball skills.

    9. Devonta Freeman, RB, Florida State (Grade: 71; Overall rank: 77): An elite competitor who runs like his hair is on fire, Freeman is quicker than he is fast and lacks the size to consistently push the pile.

    10. Daquan Jones, DT, Penn State (Grade: 71; Overall rank: 78): A massive tackle prospect who is solid against the run but limited as a pass-rusher.

    11. Caraun Reid, DT, Princeton (Grade: 70; Overall rank: 84): He is a one-gap defender who is adequate against the run and shows good upside as a pass-rusher.

    12. Jaylen Watkins, CB, Florida (Grade: 70; Overall rank: 85): He possesses good versatility and football instincts, and is physical in run support. Has adequate man-to-man coverage skills.

    13. Ed Stinson, DE, Alabama (Grade: 69; Overall rank: 87): A below-average pass-rusher who will likely have to come off the field on obvious passing downs in the NFL, Stinson has the strength and mass to anchor and set the edge as a run defender.

    14. Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma (Grade: 69; Overall rank: 88): Colvin is a fluid and flexible athlete with good football instincts, but could afford to add some more bulk to his frame. He suffered a torn ACL at Senior Bowl practices.

    15. Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers (Grade: 69; Overall rank: 89): He's a big target at 6-6, 225, and has good top-end for his size. Coleman's ball skills are inconsistent and he didn't show great separation skills in college.

    16. Russell Bodine, C, North Carolina (Grade: 69; Overall rank: 90): He has prototypical size for the center position, with adequate power and good quickness. He shows good toughness and nastiness on the field.

    17. Andre Williams, RB, Boston College (Grade: 69; Overall: 93): He runs with good power and balance, with adequate agility and deceptive top-end speed. Limited production and versatility as a receiver and pass protector.

    18. Telvin Smith, OLB, Florida State (Grade: 68; Overall: 94): His narrow frame and lack of bulk is a concern, but he has great sideline-to-sideline range as a run defender when covered up, and has the quickness and fluidity to match up with most backs in man coverage.

    19. Dontae Johnson, CB, NC State (Grade: 68; Overall: 97): He has a rare blend of size and speed for a corner, with good bulk and size potential for safety. He has good upside as a ball hawk, but didn't show much production in that area in college.

    20. Brock Vereen, S, Minnesota (Grade: 67; Overall: 100): He is undersized for the safety position but remained durable throughout college, and has good versatility and range in coverage and good closing burst and tackling ability in run support.

    I'm surprised Abberdeis didn't even make the top 20 -- they must really think he won't hold up at the next level . . .

    I know nothing about the kid from Linwood, Desir. However, the clip I saw on ESPN this morning showed a playmaker at CB. Given his size, and unlike Wilson, he turns around to look for the ball, do we take a chance on him?
