We are approaching the end of the 2015 Acme Packing Company mock draft, as we have the middle of the third round to bring you today. In this batch of picks, we find several receivers and corners dropping off the board, and yet another of the second tier of quarterbacks as well.
Here are the next set of picks in round three.
#77 (CLE): Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami (FL)
Josh: Perryman's stock has fallen mightily in the APC mock draft and the Browns add a talented ILB to their defensive front seven.
Previous picks: NT Danny Shelton, OT Ereck Flowers, WR Phillip Dorsett
#78 (NO): A.J. Cann, G, South Carolina
Brendan: The Saints helped solidify their interior line with the trade for Max Unger, but still have nobody with more than two games of starting experience to man the left guard spot. Cann should come in and compete immediately for that job after a surprising fall to the middle of round three.
Previous picks: CB Trae Waynes, OLB Owa Odighizuwa, ILB Stephone Anthony, TE Clive Walford
#79 (SF): Josh Shaw, CB, USC
Josh: The 49ers need to add prospects to every level of their defense and without reaching for an ILB, they grab a big corner.
Previous picks: DT Malcom Brown, WR Sammie Coates
#80 (KC): Doran Grant, CB, Ohio State
Ryan: The Chiefs add some depth to their secondary as Sean Smith enters the final year of his contract.
Previous picks: OT Andrus Peat, WR Nelson Agholor
#81 (BUF): Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
This is a decent spot for Grayson, as the Bills don't have to invest their first pick on him in round two. He won't be ready to start yet, but with a year or two to develop he has a chance to take over the job. (Josh)
Previous pick: OT Cedric Ogbuehi
#82 (HOU): Devin Funchess, WR, Michigan
Ryan: After Andre Johnson left, the Texans restocked at receiver with the acquisitions of Nate Washington and Cecil Shorts, but they could still use a big target to line up opposite of DeAndre Hopkins. At 6'4'', Funchess is exactly that. He won't stretch the field with speed but can be an effective player out of the slot and in the red zone.
Previous picks: S Landon Collins, ILB Eric Kendricks
#83 (SD): Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary
Aron: The Chargers haven't been able to replace Vincent Jackson's production since he left. Adding McBride after Eddie Royal dipped to Chicago might be able to change that, as he can play outside or in the slot.
Previous picks: OL T.J. Clemmings, RB Jay Ajayi
#84 (PHI): Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
Chip Kelly and an Oregon player? Ekpre-Olomu was discussed as one of the top corners in college football a year ago, and though he has injury concerns, he could be an instant contributor in the newly-rebuilt Philly secondary. (Kris)
Previous picks: WR Jaelen Strong, S Cody Prewitt
#85 (CIN): Davis Tull, LB, Chattanooga
Jason: Vontaze Burfict is recovering from microfracture surgery and may not return to the field for some time. Davis Tull is an athletic, rangy linebacker who can step into his place for the time being and provide great depth after.
Previous picks: OT D.J. Humphries, WR Tyler Lockett
#86 (ARI): Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State
Langford gives the Cardinals a tough, physical runner to pair with Andre Ellington. (Josh)
Previous picks: NT Jordan Phillips, CB Ronald Darby
#87 (PIT): D'Joun Smith, CB, Florida Atlantic
The Steelers got their replacement for Troy Polamalu in round two, and they get a talented corner to ease the blow of Ike Taylor's retirement in the third.(Brendan)
Previous picks: WR Dorial Green-Beckham, S Damarious Randall
#88 (DET): Josue Matias, G, Florida State
The left guard spot is a question mark in Detroit, as Rob Sims is a free agent. Matias would have a chance to start early on. (Kris)
Previous picks: RB Todd Gurley, DT Michael Bennett
