2014 NFL Draft Order: Day 3 List of Picks and Predictions
USA TODAY Sports

Just like that, three rounds of the 2014 NFL draft have come and gone.

Plenty of top-tier talent now have homes in the NFL; however, don't sleep on the late-round picks.

It's this point of the draft where teams can find a diamond in the rough and come away with a future All-Pro at a value price.

Plenty of current NFL stars have come from Round 4 through 7. Here's a quick glimpse: Geno Atkins was a fourth-round pick in 2010, Richard Sherman was a fifth-round pick in 2011, Tom Brady was a sixth-round pick in 2000 and Marques Colston was a seventh-round pick in 2006.

That's a pretty impressive list.

As teams delve into their big boards and prospects anxiously await their fates, let's take a look at the complete draft order for Day 3 and sprinkle in some predictions for good measure.

Prediction: T.J. Jones, WR, Notre Dame to Carolina Panthers

The Panthers grabbed Kelvin Benjamin in Round 1 to give Cam Newton a large target on the outside; however, this team needs more than just him.

Adding Jones to the mix will give the Panthers a reliable receiver to pair with their first-round selection. Jones is a solid route-runner and has good hands. He may not be a burner, but his solid fundamentals should find him a spot on the field.

Dane Brugler of CBS Sports tweeted his thoughts of Jones going in Round 4:

Great value for Carolina here.

Prediction: De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon to Philadelphia Eagles

This just makes too much sense should Thomas fall to the fifth round.

Coming from Oregon's offense, Chip Kelly would love to acquire Thomas' elusive skill set. With great acceleration, solid hands out of the backfield and the ability to serve as a returner, Thomas would fit nicely as a rotational piece on the Eagles' high-octane offense.

Prediction: Tyler Gaffney, RB, Stanford to New York Jets

With a plethora of picks near the end of the sixth round, the Jets shouldn't hesitate on selecting Gaffney here.

While the Jets acquired Chris Johnson over the offseason—and have a somewhat crowded backfield at the moment—the team lacks a workhorse like Gaffney.

Gaffney has the ability to pummel defenses and slowly wear them down throughout the course of a game. His presence will take a good deal of burden off Johnson and help the speed back find late-game holes through tired defensive lines.

After all, according to a tweet from Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, Gaffney is confident about his future in the NFL:

Prediction: Connor Shaw, QB, South Carolina to Jacksonville Jaguars

Even though Jacksonville grabbed Blake Bortles in Round 1, why not take a look at his long-term backup late in the draft?

Shaw is a good athlete who can extend plays with his legs and has shown efficiency as a passer. He'll need time to develop and fine-tune his skill set. With a similar style to Bortles, the offensive scheme would remain the same no matter who was under center.
