An exciting first two days of the 2020 NFL Draft are in the books. When day three rolls around, teams often start to take a more strategic approach. While NFL teams may target the highest-rated players on their board through the first three rounds, chasing needs becomes more of a theme by round five. As we have all seen over the last two days, the NFL Draft remains as unpredictable as ever. With the final day of selections fast approaching, we will dive into a full day three mock draft. Let’s dig in.

As we can see from the day three picks mocked above, the picks after round four are more about addressing needs and/or depth than simply selecting the best player available. By the time the seventh round rolls around, the respective teams’ depth charts play a lower correlative factor in determining which way a team leans with their picks. At that point in the draft, you are looking for developmental players who can (hopefully) become eventual starters. Day three is going to be filled with trades, so the draft positions mocked above will very likely change hands throughout the four rounds. Some teams, like Minnesota, simply have too many picks to fit on their roster and will be looking to either trade up or collect picks for the 2021 NFL Draft.
