Latest Player News

The Cowboys selected Jourdan Lewis in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 92nd overall.

Impact

Lewis was a very productive cornerback on a dominant Michigan defense, and on film he showed the developed skill set necessary to project as a viable slot corner despite mediocre athletic testing at the Combine.

The Rams selected John Johnson in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 91st overall.

Impact

Johnson was a standout starter at safety for Boston College the last two years, and his athletic testing at the Combine gave reason for the Rams to consider him as an eventual starter. At 6-feet, 208 pounds, Johnson made up for a 4.61-second 40 with a 37-inch vertical and 6.72-second three-cone drill.

The Seahawks selected Shaquill Griffin in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 90th overall.

Impact

Griffin is the classic Seahawks corner prospect – long arms and athletic. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds at the Combine, which gives him a lot of press coverage upside when you factor in his 32 and 3/8-inch arms.

The Texans selected D'Onta Foreman in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 89th overall.

Impact

Foreman (6-foot, 233 pounds) is a big running back with excellent speed, breaking into the 4.4-second range at the Texas pro day, and he'll be a very nice off-the-bench piece behind Lamar Miller. If Miller's durability troubles persist, Foreman will prove a far superior backup than the recent likes of Alfred Blue or Jonathan Grimes. After running for 2,700 yards (6.5 YPC) and 20 touchdowns in 21 games at Texas, Foreman makes for a fine dynasty asset and could be a worthwhile handcuff in some redraft scenarios.

The Raiders selected Eddie Vanderdoes in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 88th overall.

Impact

Vanderdoes is a former five-star recruit whose career was stalled by a 2015 ACL tear. If the talent he showed in the past returns to him, the Raiders could get a steal here.

The Giants selected Davis Webb in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 87th overall.

Impact

Webb (6-foot-5, 229 pounds) is a big quarterback with a strong arm and standout athleticism, and he's taken a lot of reps in the pass-happy offenses of Texas Tech and California. But his other quarterback traits were lacking as of the conclusion of his collegiate career. Webb's accuracy and decision-making failed at numerous points, and he generally didn't show much progress on either front. The physical tools are there, but the Giants shouldn't presume this is their quarterback of the future.

The Chiefs selected Kareem Hunt in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 86th overall.

Impact

Hunt (5-foot-10, 216 pounds) was a supremely productive player at Toledo, running for 4,945 yards (6.3 YPC) and 44 touchdowns in 44 career games, and in 2016 he showed off new pass-catching skills by snagging 41 passes for 403 yards. Hunt is a slick, fast-footed runner in traffic and has a big enough build to project as a high-workload option. Spencer Ware is on notice, and Charcandrick West is probably on his way to the periphery.

The Patriots selected Antonio Garcia in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 85th overall.

Impact

Garcia (6-foot-6, 302 pounds) is a lean but athletic tackle who looks like a left tackle grooming project for the Patriots. After playing in the Sun Belt, Garcia is likely more long-term insurance behind Nate Solder than he is a short-term replacement option.

The Buccaneers selected Chris Godwin in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 84th overall.

Impact

This is a steal for an offense that already was plenty intimidating. After adding DeSean Jackson in free agency and O.J. Howard in the first round, the Buccaneers get another dangerous pass catcher here in Godwin, whose prospect profile strongly indicates future success as a starter. At 6-foot-1, 209 pounds, Godwin was one of the best Combine performers at wideout, running a 4.42-second 40 while adding a 36-inch vertical and 126-inch broad jump. Godwin has excellent ball skills and wins fights in traffic, so he's not dependent on separation. It's unlikely that Godwin will reach his full form as long as Jackson is in Tampa Bay, but he should eventually emerge as a feared second punch behind lead wideout Mike Evans.

The Patriots selected Derek Rivers in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 83rd overall.

Impact

Rivers (6-foot-4, 248 pounds) looks like a steal for the Patriots. He was highly productive at Youngstown State, and his athletic profile strongly implies future success as an NFL pass rusher. He ran a 4.61-second 40 at the Combine, adding a 35-inch vertical, 123-inch broad jump, and 6.94-second three-cone drill. If he receives defensive end classification in IDP leagues, he could emerge as a productive fantasy option surprisingly early in his career.

The Broncos selected Carlos Henderson in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 82nd overall.

Impact

Henderson is a supremely explosive wideout who figures to make his share of memorable plays as a receiver and returner this year, but landing in Denver was a pretty bad outcome for his fantasy prospects. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders aren't going anywhere, and there might not be a big pie to go around with Denver's current quarterback situation. But Henderson should make his mark on the league eventually, as he's a high-motor, high-speed player with excellent open-field running skills and a long history of torching defenses. He caught 82 passes for 1,535 yards and 19 touchdowns for Louisiana Tech on just 140 targets in 2016.

The Redskins selected Fabian Moreau (pectoral) in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 81st overall.

Impact

Originally a projected top-50 pick, a torn pectoral muscle suffered during the UCLA pro day set back Moreau's stock with a 4-to-6 month prognosis. That means he might be ready to play as early as late July, and as late as late September.

The Colts selected Tarell Basham in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 80th overall.

Impact

Basham (6-foot-4, 269 pounds) is a big, athletic edge prospect who has good upside at a position of need for Indianapolis. He logged a 4.7-second 40 at the Combine, adding a 119-inch broad jump, and he finished his final season at Ohio with 10.5 sacks and 15 tackles for loss.

The Jets selected ArDarius Stewart in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 79th overall.

Impact

Stewart (5-foot-11, 204 pounds) is a fine prospect, but one who lacks obvious upside traits. He didn't break out until a redshirt senior at Alabama, and his athletic profile is merely decent (4.49-second 40, 34-inch vertical, 124-inch broad jump). Landing with the Jets is not a good development for his fantasy value, in any case, as this is a bad offense where he could end up third in line behind Quincy Enunwa and Robbie Anderson, if Eric Decker is sent packing.

The Ravens selected Tim Williams in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 78th overall.

Impact

Williams fell this far due to off-field concerns and a perhaps one-dimensional skill set, but that one dimension he has is the most important one for an edge defender: pass rushing. He posted nine sacks in 2016, as well as 16 tackles for loss. He should make an immediate impact for Baltimore as a pass-rushing specialist, but he's unlikely to accumulate the tackle volume necessary to make an IDP impact.

The Panthers selected Daeshon Hall in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 77th overall.

Impact

Hall was overshadowed by No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett, but Garrett wasn't the only standout end for A&M. At 6-foot-5, 266 pounds with 35 and 5/8-inch arms, Hall has a huge reach as well as very good athleticism, boasting a 4.76-second 40, 123-inch broad jump, and 7.03-second three-cone drill. He could start early on in his Carolina career.

The Saints selected Alex Anzalone in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 76th overall.

Impact

Anzalone is a bit of a durability worry, but when healthy he was a standout contributor on Florida's dominant defense. He's a very good athlete at the least, running a 4.63-second 40 at 6-foot-3, 241 pounds. He's not necessarily likely to start as a rookie, but the Saints are weak enough at linebacker that it shouldn't be ruled out.

The Falcons selected Duke Riley in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 75th overall.

Impact

Riley (6-foot, 232 pounds) was a productive player for LSU and has the athleticism (4.58-second 40) to project as a good coverage linebacker, but Deion Jones and De'Vondre Campbell figure to keep his relevance capped.

The Ravens selected Chris Wormley in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 74th overall.

Impact

First-round Dallas pick Taco Charlton was the most heralded Michigan lineman in this draft, but Wormley (6-foot-6, 298 pounds) is actually bigger and more athletic. He's a very good 3-4 end prospect for Baltimore.

The Bengals selected Jordan Willis in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 73rd overall.

Impact

This looks like a steal for Cincinnati. Willis (6-foot-4, 255 pounds) was very productive at Kansas State with 21 sacks and 32.5 tackles for loss over the last two years, and he was incredible at the Combine. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds while posting a 39-inch vertical, 125-inch broad jump and 6.85-second three-cone drill. There's no reason to not project Willis into the starting lineup by 2018.
