Third Round: Tyvis Powell, Braxton Miller, Jalin Marshall
Tyvis Powell’s decision to leave early was a surprise, because Powell has been good, not great. At this point in the draft, teams value reliable players that can improve with NFL level coaching. More teams now are also valuing players with playing experience, which Powell has plenty of. Ever since his game ending interception against Michigan as a freshman, Powell has been a plug-and-play safety for the Buckeyes. Scouts will see Powell the same way, as a guy they can coach up who will play hard and be able to contribute early.

Likely landing spot: No. 84, Houston Texans
Braxton Miller and Jalin Marshall are similar players. They’re incredibly athletic and make plays in space. They’re both big plays waiting to happen. But both Miller and Marshall have a lot of work to do as route runners and polished receivers. By the third round, you could do worse than either of these guys as a project receiver with big-play potential. The right teams will target these guys late in the third round because those are the teams that can afford to develop a high ceiling player like Miller or Marshall. As an aside, no one will be looking to draft Miller as a quarterback. His injury history and move this season to wide out changed that dynamic entirely.
Likely Landing Spots: Marshall, No. 87, Washington; Miller, No. 92, New England
