NFL Draft 2017: Best players available in the third day

Who is left that can help the Atlanta Falcons?

NFL: 2016 NFL Draft Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons have made just two picks through the first two rounds after trading up, then down. They now have four selections on the third day, however, and three of them are in the fifth round, where the Falcons have turned up Grady Jarrett and Ricardo Allen in recent years. Who will they select?

These players are the best remaining from Dan Kadar’s initial list of Top 100 prospects. As you can see, there are a few guys on here the Falcons would likely be very interested in, should they continue to slide down boards. Getting Jaleel Johnson in the fourth round would be ideal, in my opinion, or perhaps Dorian Johnson if he falls all the way to the end of the fourth. I’m not holding my breath, however.

Who do you like from this list?
