63. Kansas City Chiefs: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
Datone Jones is an explosive rusher from both inside and outside with the body and strength to be a great fit as 3-4 defensive end, where the Chiefs need a replacement for unrestricted free agent Glenn Dorsey.
64. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
The Jacksonville Jaguars need to upgrade at defensive tackle, and Purdue’s Kawann Short is a thick, explosive defensive tackle who is great value in Round 3.
65. Detroit Lions: William Gholston, DE, Michigan State (Jr.)
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew is known to prefer drafting the “best player available,” which Gholston is at this point, and would give the Lions a young pair of defensive ends to bookend their line long-term.
66. Oakland Raiders: Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State
The Oakland Raiders desperately need to upgrade at cornerback. Jamar Taylor is a physical, instinctive cornerback who would fit the bill.
67. Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Reed, TE, Florida (Jr.)
Brent Celek is a solid all-around tight end, but as Chip Kelly will likely look to add even more speed to the Eagles’ offense, a move tight end like Jordan Reed with great athleticism could be a very good fit for the system.
68. Cleveland Browns: David Amerson, CB, North Carolina State (Jr.)
David Amerson’s stock dipped sharply over the course of a very up-and-down junior season, but he was once considered a first-round talent. He is a playmaking cornerback with the potential to be a terrific player if he becomes more consistent.
69. Arizona Cardinals: Oday Aboushi, OT/G, Virginia
The Arizona Cardinals need more than just one offensive lineman from the 2013 NFL draft, and Virginia’s Oday Aboushi is a long, athletic lineman who could potentially be an upgrade at right tackle or right guard.
70. Tennessee Titans: Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
The Tennessee Titans have an explosive back in Chris Johnson, but would benefit by adding a more physical, between-the-tackles back like Stepfan Taylor to rotate with him.
71. Buffalo Bills: Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia
If the Bills are going to invest in a quarterback early, they also need to invest in more receivers for him to work with. West Virginia’s Stedman Bailey is a potential No. 2 or No. 3 receiver who plays with physicality and can make defenders miss.
72. New York Jets: Robert Lester, FS/SS, Alabama
Robert Lester is a physically-gifted safety with a nose for the ball, and could be a potential starter at either free or strong safety for the Jets.
73. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Zac Dysert, QB, Miami (Ohio)
Josh Freeman’s play has been disappointing for two years running, and the Buccaneers have no plans of extending his contract (which ends after the 2013 season) this offseason, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Zac Dysert is a very solid quarterback prospect who could be a good developmental option to challenge for the starting spot going forward.
74. San Francisco 49ers (from Carolina Panthers): D.J. Swearinger, FS, South Carolina
Dashon Goldson may not be back as an unrestricted free agent, and even if he is, drafting another talented defensive back who can play both safety and cornerback in D.J. Swearinger is a smart idea.
75. New Orleans Saints: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
The New Orleans Saints desperately need reinforcements at cornerback, and physical cornerback Desmond Trufant’s stock is on the rise with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl.
76. San Diego Chargers: Chris Faulk, OT, LSU (Jr.)
Chris Faulk’s stock is down after missing the entire 2012 season due to injury, but he is a talented offensive tackle with the potential to be a starter on either side of the line.
77. Miami Dolphins: Cornelius Carradine, DE, Florida State
Cornelius Carradine was on the fast track to being a first-round pick before suffering a torn ACL, but is a very talented pass-rushing defensive end who could be a third-round steal as a result of his injury.
