    Below are the top players available entering Day 3 on Saturday.

    1. Chad Hansen, WR, California (6-2, 202, 4.53)
    A transfer from the FCS level, Hansen waited his turn at Cal and dominated as a junior in 2016, attacking defenses at every level with the athleticism to get open and create after the catch. He is simply a fun player to watch play football.

    Chad Hansen knows how to create after the catch.

    2. Carl Lawson, DE/OLB, Auburn (6-2, 261, 4.67)
    A Brandon Graham-type of rusher, Lawson does a great job using his lower-body movement and upper-body power in unison to beat blockers off the edge. He lacks ideal length and his past medical issues are a concern, but Lawson has the energetic play style off the edge that NFL teams covet.

    3. Desmond King, DB, Iowa (5-10, 201, 4.53)
    The Thorpe Award winner in 2015 as a junior, King returned to school for his senior season and didn't have the same type of production. He doesn't have ideal speed, which might make him move to safety, but his cover awareness, ball skills and toughness are NFL quality.

    4. Jake Butt, TE, Michigan (6-5, 246, 4.74)
    Projected as a top-50 prospect last summer, Butt suffered a torn ACL in his bowl game, which caused him to fall out of the top three rounds. The medical reports have been favorable and he should return to the field early in the 2016 season, allowing a team to get him at a discount.

    5. Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh (6-5, 300, 5.27)
    A mauling left guard, Johnson looks the part and isn't afraid to move bodies in the run game. Some teams are worried about his medicals due to an issue with his liver and that could drop him down boards, but at some point, he will be worth the risk.

    6. Eddie Jackson, FS, Alabama (6-0, 201, 4.53)
    A four-year starter at Alabama, Jackson made the transition from cornerback to safety as a junior and collected six interceptions. He returned for his senior season, but suffered a season-ending left leg fracture in October -- his second major surgery after tearing the ACL in his right knee in 2014.

    7. Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa (6-3, 316, 5.38)
    With 7.5 sacks as a senior in 2016, Johnson became the first Iowa defensive tackle to lead the team in sacks since Mike Daniels in 2011. He doesn't play with much consistency and is better against the run than the pass, but the flashes are enticing with his body control and heavy hands.

    8. Corn Elder, CB, Miami (Fla.) (5-10, 183, 4.55)
    Elder often shadowed the opposing team's top receiver and did a nice job with his twitched-up athleticism to stay attached at the hip with wideouts. He won't be a fit for every defense with his size, but the toughness and route anticipation makes him a nickel candidate with special teams ability.

    9. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (5-11, 233, 4.65)
    Perine first introduced himself to college football when he set the FBS single-game record with 427 rushing yards as a freshman in 2014. He is an ordinary athlete and dependent on the blocking in front of him, but his balance as a runner and physical blocking skills are NFL worthy.
    Samaje Perine set an FBS record for rushing yards in a game.

    10. Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma (6-0, 178, 4.39)
    There are some off-field and personality worries with Westbrook, but he can stretch the field with his speed (12 touchdown catches of at least 40 yards last season). Although he has a slight frame and comes with character concerns, his explosive vertical skills will land him somewhere.

    Best of the rest:
    11. Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
    12. Nico Siragusa, G, San Diego State
    13. Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia
    14. Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
    15. Jalen Myrick, CB, Minnesota
    16. Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
    17. Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson
    18. Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee
    19. Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida
    20. Nathan Peterman, QB, Pittsburgh
    21. Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU
    22. Danny Isidora, G, Miami (Fla.)
    23. Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
    24. George Kittle, TE, Iowa
    25. Will Holden, OT, Vanderbilt
