The first two days of the 2020 NFL draft are complete, but more than half of the picks still remain.
The event will wrap up Saturday with the final four rounds. While many of the most promising prospects are already accounted for, several talented options are still waiting to be selected.
Here are the best available players entering Day 3:
Amik Robertson, CB, Louisiana Tech: The Honey Badger comparisons for the 5-8, 187-pound playmaker are lofty but not without some basis. The first-team All-American closes on the ball like few others can, with his 48 career pass deflections and 23 tackles for a loss reflecting his knack for disrupting plays. He could offer significant value as a nickel cornerback or even a safety.
Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia: In a zone-based scheme, the 6-1, 202-pound coverage standout can react quickly and make plays on passes easily. A season-ending broken ankle might have kept him from joining other cornerbacks in the first three rounds.
K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio State: A route-running aficionado, Hill became the Buckeyes’ all-time leader in receptions by consistently breaking free from defenders on underneath throws. He’s not particularly dynamic after the catch, but he’ll move the chains as a slot receiver.
Ben Bartch, OT, St. John’s (Minn.): The leap from Division III to the NFL is sizable, but Bartch has the tools to make the transition. The 6-6, 309-pound blocker has the athleticism and know-how to be a reliable pass protector, particularly as he gains more experience at the position after bulking up from tight end in college.
John Hightower, WR, Boise State: Need a deep threat? The wiry Hightower forces defenses to account for his speed, and he also offers value as a returner.
Curtis Weaver, DE, Boise State: Though not particularly dynamic, Weaver has shown a penchant for wearing down offensive tackles and disrupting in the backfield. His relentless approach will earn him opportunities to show he can be a productive part of an NFL pass rush.
Troy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame: The former track standout often stays glued to receivers in man coverage. He’s still putting together all the duties of the position, though, which means patience will be required as he learns to locate the ball.
Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia: He can go through his reads and put the ball on point like a starter, but he lacks the arm strength to test NFL defenses. In the right situation, he should be an effective backup who could be a game manager if forced into action.
Jacob Eason, QB, Washington: At his best, Eason makes his mark by connecting on deep throws and in tight-window connections. He’s too often undone by pressure and his lagging processing, though, and needs to be supported by a downfield passing attack that accounts for both his strengths and weaknesses.
Anthony Gordon, QB, Washington State: Gordon doesn’t have the same level of name recognition as the other quarterbacks on this list, but he showed intriguing potential as a developmental passer in his lone year as a starter. He’s worth a mid-round flier.
