Day Three Steals

Many experts had Lamar Miller ranked as a first-round talent, but he ended up falling all the way to the fourth round. Instead of sleeping in and missing the first few picks, this is exactly the kind of epic fall that you can’t afford to miss. The Dolphins get the steal of the draft.

 

Round 4: No. 17—Bobby Massie, OT, Cardinals

The talk of offensive lineman Bobby Massie sneaking into the late-first round was everywhere on Thursday and his selection on Friday when his name name being called Day 1 was guaranteed.

Whoops! After three full rounds, Massie fell 17 picks into the fourth round before eventually being taken by the Arizona Cardinals. If they can develop the young star, he can be a great NFL player over the next few seasons.

Round 4: No. 28—Brandon Boykin, DB, Eagles

With a need at the cornerback position in terms of depth and growth, the Eagles get an amazing pick that could develop into a solid NFL player. While Boykin’s lacks the size to be a star, he has the tenacity to be a slot cover guy and wrap up his tackles. That’s something Philadelphia missed big time last season.
