  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 99 — Luke McCaffrey

    • Draft Grade: D

    • School: Rice

    • Height: 6′ 2″

    • Weight: 198

    Random as hell. McCaffrey had a solid final season in college football, so maybe this works, but it’s hard to see where he fits in with the Commanders. Weird pick.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 98 — Kamren Kinchens

    • Draft Grade: B

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 94

    • School: Miami (FL)

    • Height: 5′ 11″

    • Weight: 203

    Kinchens is a good playmaker and should be a productive member of the Rams’ secondary. His 4.65 40-yard dash and general poor performance at the NFL combine hurt him, but he’s still a good ball player.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 97 — Payton Wilson

    • Draft Grade: B

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 90

    • School: N.C. State

    • Height: 6′ 4″

    • Weight: 233

    Wilson has played a whole lot of football for NC State. He has a chance to be a solid starter.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 96 — McKinnley Jackson

    • Draft Grade: C

    • School: Texas A&M

    • Height: 6′ 2″

    • Weight: 326

    The Bengals needed defensive line depth and might have found that with the steady Jackson from Texas A&M.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 95 — Jarrian Jones

    • Draft Grade: B

    • School: Florida St.

    • Height: 6′ 0″

    • Weight: 190

    Another All-Juice team selection, Jones has a chance to develop into a solid starter for the Jaguars down the road.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 94 — DeWayne Carter

    • Draft Grade: C

    • School: Duke

    • Height: 6′ 2″

    • Weight: 302

    Carter is a quality backup prospect for the Bills’ defensive line rotation.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 94 — Jaylx Hunt

    Edge depth is never a bad thing. Hunt is a bit undersized, but the Eagles have gravitated toward those body types on the edge recently with some good results.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 93 — Adisa Isaac

    • Draft Grade: B

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 96

    • School: Penn St.

    • Height: 6′ 4″

    • Weight: 247

    Edge depth for the Ravens. They needed some insurance in case Odafe Oweh doesn’t take that next step.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 92 — Jalen McMillan

    • Draft Grade: A

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 57

    • School: Washington

    • Height: 6′ 1″

    • Weight: 197

    The third Washington wide receiver is off the board, giving the Huskies six offensive players drafted from their national runner-up team. McMillan is a strong get for the Buccaneers and should compete for starting 11 personnel reps off the bat.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 91 — Ty’Ron Hopper

    • Draft Grade: C-

    • School: Missouri

    • Height: 6′ 2″

    • Weight: 231

    It’s hard to get too upset about at a pick at this point in the draft, but Hopper feels like a long-shot to be a contributor on defense for the Packers.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 90 Elijah Jones

    • Draft Grade: C

    • School: Boston Coll.

    • Height: 6′ 2″

    • Weight: 185

    Jones adds versatile defensive back depth. Has the ability to grow into a starter at some point if things shake out for him, but he faces a log-jammed depth chart — which is a good thing for the Cardinals.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 89 —Tykee Smith

    • Draft Grade: B

    • School: Georgia

    • Height: 5′ 10″

    • Weight: 202

    Safety depth here is a solid pull for the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay has a solid third safety or depth safety to pair with Antoine Winfield Jr. for the long term.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 88 — MarShawn Lloyd

    • Draft Grade: A+

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 97

    • School: USC

    • Height: 5′ 9″

    • Weight: 220

    Lloyd is a stud. He’s had a bit of a fumbling problem, but he’s a bowling ball with balance and some real breakaway speed. If he’s able to hold onto the ball better he can be an impact running back in the NFL.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 87 — Marist Liufau

    • Draft Grade: C

    • School: Notre Dame

    • Height: 6′ 2″

    • Weight: 234

    The Cowboys needed a real linebacker body on their roster and they got one in Liufau. No more safeties at linebacker is a good thing for Dallas, even if Liufau isn’t necessarily a star.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 86 —Dominick Puni

    • Draft Grade: C

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 66

    • School: Kansas

    • Height: 6′ 5″

    • Weight: 313

    More depth for a 49ers offensive line that’s continuing to find their best starting five after an inconsistent showing in 2023.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 85 — Zak Zinter

    • Draft Grade: B

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 99

    • School: Michigan

    • Height: 6′ 6″

    • Weight: 309

    The Browns just picked an offensive lineman who has starter potential in the third round. Good move for Cleveland and another member off the All-Juice team is gone.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 84 — Roman Wilson

    • Draft Grade: C

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 58

    • School: Michigan

    • Height: 5′ 11″

    • Weight: 185

    The Steelers needed some wide receiver depth and they got it, but they might have been better served finding a bigger play wide receiver. Still, Wilson will learn quickly with the big target vacuum he’s walking into.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 83 — Blake Corum

    • Draft Grade: C+

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 86

    • School: Michigan

    • Height: 5′ 8″

    • Weight: 205

    Corum is a good player, no doubt, but this feels like a weird fit with what Kyren Williams brought to the team last season. Still, a 1-2 punch with Williams and Corum behind a revamped offensive line might rake for the Rams.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 82 — Tip Reiman

    • Draft Grade: C+

    • School: Illinois

    • Height: 6′ 5″

    • Weight: 271

    Good, big athlete for the Cardinals to pair with Trey McBride. This is the thunder to McBride’s lightning.

  • Expert Commentary: Pick No. 81 — Christian Haynes

    • Draft Grade: A+

    • Pre-Draft Rank: 30

    • School: Connecticut

    • Height: 6′ 3″

    • Weight: 317

    Haynes is a STUD. The Seahawks might have a rookie starting guard in the third round who excels just about everywhere. This is a fantastic pickup.
