There's still playmakers to be had in the fourth round and beyond.
Two of the best QBs in this draft (USC's Matt Barkley and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib) are still around on the third day, which is quite amazing if you've been trying to keep up with the pre-draft rankings by many respected NFL personalities.
The fact that several marquee skill position players and defensive playmakers are still available as well is another indicator that players do fall through the cracks—even in the best football league on Earth.

Day 3 Players to Follow Closely
QB Matt Barkley, USC/ QB Ryan Nassib, Syracuse
Although the teams that needed a QB were able to grab one during the first two days of the draft, there will still be a huge market for both of these guys on Saturday.
Consider teams with young starters like Tennessee, Minnesota and Cincinnati to maybe take a stab on QBs they like in the fifth or sixth round, because you can never have enough depth the in NFL under center.
Heck, even Indianapolis and Washington both picked two QBs in the 2012 NFL draft.
Look no further than Washington's use of Kirk Cousins after the Robert Griffin III last season injury to see that having depth at QB is more valuable than depth at any other position, even if that depth is often fleeting because of the pure talent.
Other options at QB on Day 3 include Oklahoma's Landry Jones, Arizona's Matt Scott as well as the two aforementioned prospects—both of whom were expected to be gone by Friday night. They are not, and that opens up an interesting situation for teams to start looking at taking a QB in Round 4.
RB Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
He's certainly not the best RB on the board, but Lattimore had the makings of a star when he first arrived on the scene in South Carolina.
Two knee injuries have severely depleted his draft stock, but as we've seen with a guy like Willis McGahee, the right amount of willpower and talent will overcome that issue and produce a good career in the NFL under the right circumstances.
As with the QB position, running back is a position that you need depth at to succeed.
From the two-back system taking over the league these days to the fact that this wasn't a standout draft for RBs, it's surprising to see that there are still some good backs (UCLA's Johnathan Franklin, for example) left as Saturday's Round 4 is set to begin.
Lattimore isn't high on that list, but in the right system with a chance to sit out the first year and get fully healthy, he would be a fourth or fifth-round steal.
OL Barrett Jones, Alabama
Jones' medical history must really be daunting, because his game on the field speaks for itself.
It is surprising to see Jones still available on Day 3, but that will change when a team looking to add depth to all three line spots takes him on Saturday.
Not the fastest or most athletic guy, Jones makes up for his flaws with an incredible football IQ and the ability to play all five positions on the line if necessary. There's teams that would be at a high premium for that kind of talent.
Look for San Diego, Buffalo and maybe even a team like Miami or St. Louis to be interested in upgrading their line with Jones.
