With the 65th pick of the NN community mock draft, Darth Divac and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select...Ali Marpet, OG, Hobart
Alternates: TE/WR Devin Funchess, DE Lorenzo Mauldin, DE Markus Golden
Marpet comes from a small DIII school, and was largely an unknown heading into the season. After not allowing a sack in 2014, and winning the Liberty Conference Offensive Player of the Year award, he edged his way onto the radar of many scouts. It was during the combine, however, that Marpet's draft stock shot up. Standing 6'4, Marpet is an incredibly athletic blocker, finishing first among all offensive linemen in the 40 yard dash and second in the 3 cone and 20 yard shuttle. His speed/size combination allows him to seal the edge on counter plays with relative ease, and quicker speed-rushers can't get the jump on him. Though he has impressive tools, he still needs to add strength at 305.
With the 66th pick of the NN community mock draft, Joe the Wizard and the Tennessee Titans select...Hau'oli Kikaha, OLB, Washington
Alternates: Tevin Coleman, Marcus Hardison, Shaq Thompson
It was extremely hard for me to pass on Tevin Coleman. He is one of my favorite players in the draft. I never dreamed he could fall to me in the third round. Sadly, after shedding many tears, I passed on him and continued to improve the Titan's pass rush instead. Therefore, I took Hau'oli Kikaha, a 6-2, 253 pound outside linebacker out of the University of Washington instead.
The Titans did not have much of a pass rush last year so it isn't any wonder their defensive backfield was chewed up like puppy dogs in a lion's cage. Kikaha, along with their selection of Leonard Williams in the first round and free agent signing of OLB Bryan Orakpo should definitely help to improve their pass rush.
Kikaha was Hawaii's high school defensive player of the year before hitting the west coast like a tidal wave. This kid loves the sack. 19 sacks and 25 tackles for a loss! Are you kidding me? We are not talking career totals, we are just talking about his totals for the 2014 season. He had another thirteen sacks in 2013.
He had season ending knee injuries in both 2011 and 2012 but seemed to hold up fine the last two seasons.
With the 67th pick of the NN community mock draft, Kilimnajarbro and the Jacksonville Jaguars select...Tre Jackson, OG, Florida State
As one of the last notable offensive linemen in a quickly dwindling list, we take Jackson to add some talent to largely underperforming front. I don't want to look at the numbers from last year, but I seem to remember Bortles taking the "I got sacked a lot" crown.
With recently acquired center Stephen Wisniewski, Tre Jackson will have a starting caliber center next to him, just like he did during his FSU days.
With the 68th pick of the NN community mock draft, Mark Balliett and the Oakland Raiders select...Arie Kouandjio, OG, Alabama
At this point in the draft, this pick was more about need than anything. I have a heard time evaluating offensive lineman and Kouandjo was no different. Watching his tape, he appears to be a very good run blocker. He's big and athletic, but appears to be a bit slow and flat footed as a pass blocker. He definitely has the physical tools to be a starting quality Guard in the NFL and that's about all you could ask from a 3rd round pick. He was up against solid talent every week in the SEC and should be well prepared for the NFL.
