After another eventful and exciting day, the chapter of Day Two of the NFL Draft is finally closed creating a feverish mood of anticipation of what is yet to come for Day Three. The third and final day of the NFL Draft (rounds four through seven) begins today at 9:00 a.m. PT. The 49ers have six picks remaining including one in the fourth round (No. 143), two in the fifth round (No. 146 and No. 161), two in the sixth round (No. 198 and No. 202), and one in the seventh round (No. 229). Keep in mind the 49ers' fourth round pick (No. 143) is a compensatory pick, which can now be traded if John Lynch and Co. have the desire to take advantage of someone today.

After solidifying some needs in Days One and Two, we'll take a look at some best available players potentially filling positions the 49ers' roster needs addressing.
