Week 3 NFL mock draft: How to vote for your favorite teams, players and more
The NFL is set to begin voting for its first all-female All-Pro team this week, and fans have been anxiously awaiting the results.
On Tuesday, NFL Media analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said the league will choose eight All-Americans this week.
And in a preview of his draft board, Kiper said he expects to choose a number of the league’s most coveted players, including Jadeveon Clowney, Ezekiel Elliott and Odell Beckham Jr.
The draft has also been hotly debated in recent weeks.
With the league moving to a more “tough, no-holds barred” draft format, some analysts are saying there’s less room for controversy in the first round.
However, as we’ve pointed out, there’s no denying the first two rounds are still dominated by controversy.
In fact, Katori has a lot of people in his “toughest possible” category on the first three rounds.
We’ve also highlighted some of the most shocking picks in the draft, including the Cowboys’ selection of Jadeveons choice to be named the NFL’s “best player.”
While there are a lot more players who have the potential to be drafted in the top 10 than in the second round, we can’t overlook the fact that this year’s draft is more polarizing than ever.
And as always, there are plenty of players who could be picked ahead of some of this years best players.
Here are some of Kiper’s top picks for the draft:1.
Jadeveontown Clowney – Defensive tackle, South Carolina2.
Ezekiel Elliott – Running back, Ohio State3.
Odell Beckwith – Wide receiver, LSU4.
Jalen Ramsey – Cornerback, Florida5.
Odessa Williams – Tight end, Michigan6.
Jourdan Lewis – Quarterback, Clemson7.
Kaelin Clay – Corner, Oklahoma State8.
Chris Wormley – Safety, OhioState9.
J.C. Beathard – Running Back, Ohio8.
Jalil Mack – Wide Receiver, Alabama8.
Jahlil Okafor – Offensive tackle, Duke9.
Jalon Hill – Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss9.
Odelle Thomas – Cornerbacker, Alabama9.
Josh Sweat – Offensive lineman, OhioSource: NFL Media draft grades: 2016 NFL Mock Draft – Mel Kaitner Jr. draft preview articleKiper’s mock draft board includes a couple of players that have been highly touted in the NFL Draft this year.
One of those players is Clemson’s Jadeveone Clowney.
While he might be one of the top-rated offensive tackles in the Draft, he’s also not the best athlete, which Kiper feels is one of his biggest strengths.
In his mock draft, Kaitsey also likes Texas A&M running back Jalen “Jalen” Ramsey, which he’s ranked second on the team.
And while he might not be the best player on the board, he could be the top player in the third round, which could be one reason why he’s rated higher than some of his other teammates.
While some might be skeptical of Ramsey, Kateri feels the Tigers’ defensive lineman can help the team in a variety of ways.
He said the team has two offensive linemen with a combined 14.5 sacks and that they’ve got an interior pass rusher.
And while he’s not as big as Clowney and Elliott, he’ll definitely help the Tigers in pass protection and make plays against the run.
Kait’s final mock draft picks include Georgia’s Odessa “Odell” Williams, Alabama’s JahlIL Mack, Florida State’s Chris Wormleys, Notre Dame’s Josh Sweats, Ohio’s JourDane Lewis and Michigan State’s Jalil “Jahlil” Mack.
In addition to those top-five picks, Katoi has the Lions’ wide receiver in Mack, the 49ers’ cornerback in Wormley, and the Steelers’ defensive end in Lewis.
He also has a few other players ranked ahead of him.
One of the teams that Katois mock draft has him at is Texas A & M, who ranked him as the fifth-best offensive tackle in the country.
And it’s not like he’s a bad athlete either.
He’s listed at 6-foot-5, 255 pounds and has great length for a center.
In his mock, Kataon also liked Florida State cornerback Jalil Jones, which would be a big plus for the Seminoles, considering they had a lot on the line in the last two weeks.
