Will Helms’ Day 3 2024 NFL Mock Draft: Troy Franklin’s Shocking Slide Ends, Spencer Rattler Competes With Geno Smith

After a wild Day 2, teams have 157 more picks remaining. Here, Pro Football Network gives a full rundown of Day 3 in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft.

Two days down, one to go. After an entertaining first two nights of the 2024 NFL Draft, Pro Football Network has you covered with all the names you’ll hear on Saturday.

Carolina Panthers, you are on the clock in our Day 3 2024 NFL Mock Draft.

2024 NFL Mock Draft | Round 4

101) Carolina Panthers: Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Alabama

Carolina was wheeling and dealing Friday, moving back and up and back and ultimately ending up with another weapon for Bryce Young and a solid off-ball linebacker in Trevin Wallace. Now, to find a starting tight end. Ja’Tavion Sanders is big, athletic, and productive.

102) Seattle Seahawks (From WAS): Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina

After building the trenches on the first two days, Seattle takes its signal-caller of the future in Spencer Rattler. There were unfair questions about his character that caused him to fall, and he may be a long-term starter in the NFL with great arm talent.

103) New England Patriots: T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

New England tried to address the offensive line in Round 3, and the moves made might allow them to look at the defense early on Day 3. There’s good value at cornerback, with T.J. Tampa somehow available. That’s a great pick, barring some medical issues we’re unaware of.

104) Arizona Cardinals: Brandon Dorlus, EDGE, Oregon

Some of the edge rushers I thought would go early lingered, giving the Cardinals good value here. Brandon Dorlus has all the tools, but he’s raw as a pass rusher and will need some time to adjust.

105) Los Angeles Chargers: Will Shipley, RB, Clemson

Will Shipley has excellent burst but occasionally bounces runs outside that he shouldn’t. Physically, he’s as NFL-ready as they get.

106) Tennessee Titans: Malik Washington, WR, Virginia

Tennessee needs another receiver, preferably in the slot. Malik Washington was extremely productive at Virginia, leading the nation in catches last season.

107) New York Giants: Javon Foster, OT, Missouri

Offensive tackles are flying off the board, so the Giants grab Javon Foster before it’s too late. He needs some polish, but he’s got starter upside.

108) Minnesota Vikings: D.J. James, Auburn

D.J. James is lean for a corner, but that hasn’t scared the Vikings in the past. His athletic profile excites, and he can be a quality player in Minnesota with some time.

109) Atlanta Falcons: Brenden Rice, WR, USC

The Falcons’ draft strategy has been puzzling, but they’ve grabbed some quality players. Brenden Rice is a completely different player than his dad, instead winning with athleticism off the line.

110) New England Patriots (From LAC): Audric Estimé, RB, Notre Dame

The Patriots are a sneaky spot for a running back, and Audric Estimé complements the rest of the backfield. He’s a bruising, downhill back.

111) New York Jets: Dadrion Taylor-Demerson, S, Texas Tech

Dadrion Taylor-Demerson is one of the most versatile safety prospects in the draft. He can excel in one-high or two-high and loves to play with his eyes on the quarterback.

112) Las Vegas Raiders: Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin

The Raiders need another back, and Braelon Allen is an extremely young power-back option. He has good balance and doesn’t have the extra tread we’ve come to expect from Wisconsin backs.

113) Baltimore Ravens (From DEN): Javon Baker, WR

After the Ravens prioritized their other top needs in the first few rounds, it’s time to snag them a wide receiver. Javon Baker has the chance to be electric in the right system.

114) Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian Mahogany, G, Boston College

With needs along the offensive line, the value here is at guard. Jacksonville grabs Christian Mahogany here to anchor the middle of its offensive line in the future.

115) Cincinnati Bengals: Decamerion Richardson, CB, Mississippi State

Cincinnati has a need on the outside of the defense, and Decamerion Richardson provides plenty of size and man-matching ability at the boundary. He could play sooner than some expect with the Bengals.

116) Jacksonville Jaguars (From NO): Mason McCormick, G, South Dakota State

Mason McCormick is this year’s mauling FCS guard prospect. It’ll be an adjustment moving to the game’s highest level, but he has a solid base and is incredibly strong.

117) Indianapolis Colts: Malik Mustapha, S, Wake Forest

Malik Mustapha was passed over for a scholarship at Wake Forest because his 40-yard dash was too slow, so he went to Richmond, played well as a true freshman, and wound up in Winston-Salem, N.C., the following year.

That’s just one example of his work ethic and motor. He can thump in the running game.

118) Seattle Seahawks: Kalen King, CB, Penn State

There was a time when Kalen King was floated as a potential early Day 2 guy. He’s a solid zone corner who has below-average athleticism. He could slide to free safety, and I love the fit in Seattle.

119) Pittsburgh Steelers: Beau Brade, S, Maryland

It’s a bit surprising to see Beau Brade fall, as he has starter upside and great athleticism. He has a high floor, especially for a fourth-rounder, making his selection a steal for Pittsburgh.

120) Philadelphia Eagles (From LAR): Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

They couldn’t do it again, could they? Troy Franklin‘s frame is lean, but he shouldn’t be available here. If he is, Howie Roseman again wins the draft by staying put.

121) Denver Broncos: Jacob Cowing, WR, Arizona

Jacob Cowing is a small but do-it-all slot receiver out of Arizona. His footwork and acceleration make him a great separator.

He’s an excellent RAC receiver who gets to work with a quarterback in Bo Nix, who has excelled at putting his pass catchers in position to add value after the catch.

122) Chicago Bears: Austin Booker, EDGE, Kansas

Austin Booker has a lean frame, but he has some pass-rushing juice. He falls here to a team that could use a running mate for Montez Sweat.

123) Philadelphia Eagles (From HOU): Christian Jones, OT, Texas

Christian Jones is huge but may need to move inside to guard. He’s a developmental offensive lineman who could learn under one of the best veteran units in the league.

124) San Francisco 49ers: Mekhi Wingo, DT, LSU

Mekhi Wingo is a smaller defensive tackle but would immediately crack the 49ers’ defensive line rotation. He has great upside but needs a bit more polish.

125) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dylan Laube, RB, New Hampshire

Two things should make Dylan Laube attractive on Day 3 of the 2024 NFL Draft: receiving ability and special teams upside. Those are two of the best things to have as a Day 3 RB prospect, and he can step in as a backup immediately.

126) Green Bay Packers: Tanor Bortolini, C, Wisconsin

After taking offensive lineman Jordan Morgan in the first round, the Packers had a primarily defensive Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft. They flip back to the offensive line in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft to take the versatile (and local) Tanor Bortolini.

127) Houston Texans: Layden Robinson, G, Texas A&M

Layden Robinson‘s ceiling is capped by his lack of elite athleticism, but he’s a solid and steady guard who can provide quality depth for the Texans.

128) Buffalo Bills: Jalen Coker, WR, Holy Cross

Buffalo isn’t done at receiver, and getting a guy who can separate will surely help, especially opposite a contested catch specialist in Keon ColemanJalen Coker will be fun in the NFL.

129) New York Jets (From MIN): Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State

Johnny Wilson is huge and could transition to tight end due to some expected issues with hip sink and quickness. Yet, he’d make an awesome red-zone target for Aaron Rodgers no matter where he aligns.

130) Baltimore Ravens: Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB, Clemson

Jeremiah Trotter Jr. was hard to peg pre-draft, and it seems he’s fallen a bit. The Clemson linebacker is at his best when getting downhill, something I love about the way he plays. It’s a great fit on a blitz-heavy Baltimore defense.

131) Kansas City Chiefs: Cedric Gray, LB, North Carolina

This was a team-player fit I identified before the draft. Cedric Gray is not elite as an athlete or in any one area, but he also doesn’t have many flaws.

132) San Francisco 49ers: Xavier Thomas, EDGE, Clemson

Xavier Thomas was a former five-star recruit but never reached elite level at Clemson. He was also never fully healthy but supposedly feels great now and could learn from the best in San Francisco.

133) Kansas City Chiefs: Leonard Taylor III, DT, Miami (FL)

Just a year ago, some thought Leonard Taylor III would be a first-round pick. That never materialized after a poor 2023 season, but the potential exists.

134) New York Jets: Bucky Irving, RB, Oregon

Bucky Irving is sudden and shifty and provides a high enough floor to step in as a change-of-pace back in New York, providing another weapon for the Jets offense.

135) San Francisco 49ers: Garrett Greenfield, OT, South Dakota State

Garrett Greenfield’s strong zone-blocking ability finds a perfect home in San Francisco. As with all FCS linemen, there will be an adjustment period, but this has the chance to be a sneaky steal.
