Top Prospects Available for Day 3 of 2016 NFL Draft

The NFL's 32 teams have made it through three rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft, but there is still much work to be done with rounds four through seven set to begin at 11:00 a.m. CT on Saturday. With that much work yet to be done, you know there are still many solid prospects remaining on the board. Here's a look at some of the best ones, according to NFL Media's Gil Brandt.

52.*Andrew Billings*, DT, Baylor (6-0 5/8, 311, 5.05 40)

A lot of mock drafts had Billings going somewhere in the second half of the first round, but he remains available heading into the fourth round. Billings is big and can clog up the middle, but he also has explosive traits and made a habit of being in the offensive backfield.

53.*Devontae Booker*, RB, Utah (5-10 3/4, 219, no 40 time)

56.*Connor Cook*, QB, Michigan State (6-4, 217, 4.79 40)

Not many would've been surprised if Cook had gone very late in the first round to a team looking to stash a QB behind an established but soon to be retired veteran. It didn't happen, though, and then no one picked him in the second or third rounds, either. Now the question is, will he even be the next QB off the board?

62.*Evan Boehm*, C, Missouri (6-2 1/8, 302, 5.33 40)

67.*Zack Sanchez*, CB, Oklahoma (5-10 7/8, 181, 4.49 40)

71.*Jordan Howard*, RB, Indiana (6-0 1/8, 223, 4.59 40)

Here's a RB who set the UAB rushing record then transferred to Indiana and was a First-Team All-Big 10 performer. He ran a 4.59 40-yard dash and is listed at 230 pounds. Howard posseses an intriguing combination of skill set and size.

74.*Christian Westerman*, OG, Arizona State (6-3 1/8, 298, 5.17 40)

76.*Hassan Ridgeway*, DT, Texas (6-3 3/8, 303, 5.02 40)

80.*Kenneth Dixon*, RB, Louisiana Tech (5-10 1/8, 215, 4.58 40)

81.*Dak Prescott*, QB, Mississippi State (6-2 1/4, 226, 4.79 40)

82.*Miles Killebrew*, S, Southern Utah (6-1 7/8, 217, 4.65 40)

Teams looking for that hybrid safety-linebacker may find Killebrew interesting. He was a four-year starter at Southern Utah who reached triple digits in tackles in each of the past two seasons and earned all-conference recognition in all four of his seasons in college.

83.*DeAndre Houston-Carson*, S, William & Mary (6-0 3/4, 201, 4.54 40)

85.*Willie Beavers*, OT, Western Michigan (6-4 1/2, 321, 5.28 40)

89.*Joshua Perry*, ILB, Ohio State (6-3 3/4, 254, 4.68 40)

90.*Nick Kwiatkoski*, ILB, West Virginia (6-2, 243, 4.73 40)

93.*Jerald Hawkins*, OT, LSU (6-5 5/8, 305, 5.23 40)

94.*Vadal Alexander*, OG, LSU (6-5 1/4, 326, 5.57 40)

Alexander has experience playing both LG and RT and he earned First-Team All-SEC honors on the right side last season. He's big and powerful and he has position flexibility.

96.*Blake Martinez*, ILB, Stanford (6-1 5/8, 237, 4.71 40)

97.*Joe Dahl*, OG, Washington State (6-4 1/8, 304, 5.18 40)

98.*Sheldon Day*, DT, Notre Dame (6-0 1/2, 293, 5.07 40)

Day is a three-year starter at a major program who can play DE or DT and who made a habit of disrupting offenses with 15.5 tackles for loss, 13 QB hurries and 4.0 sacks in 2015 along the way to earning USA Today First Team All-American honors. How is he still available? Tough to figure out. But he may not be available for long on Saturday.

100.*Kolby Listenbee*, WR, TCU (6-0, 197, 4.37 40)

101.*Ron Thompson*, DE, Syracuse (6-3 3/4, 253, 4.92 40)

102.*Jerell Adams*, TE, South Carolina (6-5 1/8, 247, 4.64 40)

103.*Alex Collins*, RB, Arkansas (5-10, 217, 4.59 40)

104.*Jonathan Williams*, RB, Arkansas (5-11 1/8, 216, 4.59 40)

105.*Paul Perkins*, RB, UCLA (5-10 3/8, 208, 4.54 40)

Perkins has run for nearly 3,000 yards the last two seasons at UCLA and he's found the end zone 23 times in that span. The Vikings have stocked up on LBs and specialists from UCLA in recent years, maybe Saturday is the day to pluck a RB from the Bruins campus.

106.*Eric Murray*, CB, Minnesota (5-10 5/8, 199, 4.49 40)

107.*Avery Young*, OT, Auburn (6-4 5/8, 328, 5.39 40)

108.*Aaron Burbridge*, WR, Michigan State (6-0, 206, 4.5 40)

109.*Quinton Jefferson*, DT, Maryland (6-3 7/8, 291, 4.95 40)

110.*Connor McGovern*, OG, Missouri (6-4 1/4, 306, 5.11 40)

111.*Kevin Hogan*, QB, Stanford (6-3 1/4, 218, 4.78 40)

113.*Devon Cajuste*, WR, Stanford (6-3 3/4, 234, 4.62 40)

114.*Temarrick Hemingway*, TE, South Carolina State (6-4 7/8, 244, 4.71 40)

115.*Malcolm Mitchell*, WR, Georgia (5-11 5/8, 198, 4.45 40)

116.*Josh Ferguson*, RB, Illinois (5-9 5/8, 196, 4.48 40)

117.*Kelvin Taylor*, RB, Florida (5-10 1/4, 207, 4.6 40)

118.*Chris Moore*, WR, Cincinnati (6-1, 208, 4.53 40)

119.*Jack Allen*, C, Michigan State (6-1 1/4, 294, 5.29 40)

Allen was a high school wrestler who brought that rugged mentality to Michigan State and the Big 10, where he was a four-year starter, two-time USA Today All-American and team captain.

120.*Caleb Benenoch*, OT, UCLA (6-5 1/2, 311, 4.98 40)

122.*Joe Haeg*, OT, North Dakota State (6-6, 304, 5.16 40)

124.*Cardale Jones*, QB, Ohio State (6-5, 253, 4.81 40)

Jones has great size at 6-5, 253 pounds. He has a cannon for an arm. He was productive at a powerhouse school. He led Ohio State to a national title. And he's been through a lot of adversity only to rise from it and be on the cusp of making it to the NFL. Could be a fun project with big upside for some QB coach out there.

125.*Rashard Higgins*, WR, Colorado State (6-1 3/8, 196, 4.64 40)

126.*Dadi Nicolas*, DE, Virginia Tech (6-2 7/8, 235, 4.74 40)

127.*Paul McRoberts*, WR, SE Missouri State (6-1 3/4, 202, 4.69 40)

129.*Dominique Robertson*, OT, West Georgia (6-4 5/8, 324, 5.36 40)

130.*Brandon Shell*, OT, South Carolina (6-5 3/8, 324, 5.22 40)

131.*Alex Lewis*, OT, Nebraska (6-6, 312, 5.22 40)

132.*Spencer Drango*, OG, Baylor (6-4 5/8, 315, 5.27 40)

133.*Matt Judon*, DE, Grand Valley State (6-3, 275, 4.73 40)

136.*Jalen Mills*, S, LSU (6-1, 191, 4.47 40)

137.*Deon Bush*, S, Miami (Fla.) (6-0 3/8, 199, 4.6 40)

Perhaps Bush is that versatile safety Mike Zimmer likes so much. He can make plays in coverage (four INTs, 13 pass breaks ups), at the line of scrimmage (103 tackles, 7.0 TFLs, last two seasons) and he likes to rip the ball from the ball carrier (five forced fumbles in 2014.

138.*Jayron Kearse*, S, Clemson (6-4, 216, 4.62 40)

139.*Travis Feeney*, OLB, Washington (6-3 5/8, 230, 4.5 40)
