2011 NFL Draft Grades and Results: Greg Mcelroy and the Best Day 3 Value Picks
2011 NFL Draft Recap of the Best Value Picks from Day Three
There were still some solid players available entering Day 3 of the NFL Draft, however, some of them found themselves in a free-fall that found fans wondering when it was going to end.
Some players represented excellent value, and here are the three best value picks from Day 3:
1. Marcus Cannon (OT, New England Patriots)
Marcus Cannon was a tremendous player for TCU this past season, but due to medical concerns found himself falling on draft day even though he was graded out as a second round talent.
The Patriots swooped in to end his free-fall as they selected him with the 138th overall pick. If Cannon can pass his medical checks, he will end up as the biggest steal of this year's draft and could find himself starting early in the season next year.
2. Greg McElroy
As one of the smartest QBs in this year's draft, his free-fall to the seventh round was a bit shocking, especially considering that T.J. Yates and Tyrod Taylor were selected ahead of him.
McElroy only threw nine interceptions in his last two years as a starting QB for the Crimson Tide, and led them to a National Championship.
McElroy might not have the most talent at the QB position, but he is smart and a winner and represents incredible value in the seventh round.
3. Virgil Green (TE, Denver Broncos)
Green is a very talented, pass-catching TE out of the University of Nevada. He is a former basketball player that has made a solid transition to the TE position.
He is still a bit raw, but is one of the most athletic TEs in this draft, and possesses similar qualities to D.J. Williams who went two rounds earlier.
