NFL Draft: Best players available for day 3

New, comments

Looking at the best available prospects for Day Three of the 2018 NFL Draft.

NCAA Football: Miami at Florida State Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

The first two days of the 2018 NFL Draft in the books. The San Francisco 49ers made three selections on day two that included wide receiver Dante Pettis, linebacker Fred Warner, and safety Tarvarius Moore.

If one thing is very clear from this draft its that John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan are drafting for speed. So far, all of the players drafted have speed and athleticism. This will be important to keep in mind as we turn our attention towards the final day of the draft.

To recap so far, the 49ers have addressed right tackle (Future left tackle), wide receiver, linebacker, and safety/cornerback. The team has selected four draft picks thus far, and bearing trades, they will select four more today. Let’s get right to it, and see who are the best players available for Day 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft.
