Third Round Targets

1. Tamorrion Terry, WR (Florida State)

Round three is what I’ve been terming the wide receiver round. There’s a ton of wide receiver talent available in most mock drafts in round three. Now, there is a high probability that these guys go much higher than 95 and maybe even approach the top 50, but for now, we are going to assume there’s at least a chance they could be a third-round target.

This first receiver is one of my favorite players in this entire draft class, Tamorrion Terry, or as I like to call him, Terror Terry. He is 6’4″ and 210 pounds of pure speed. Being that big and having under 4.4 speed gives me massive D.K. Metcalf vibes.

Check out this Twitter thread I made about Terry a couple of weeks ago for some clips and more info.

No one is talking about this dude but he could have a Martavis Bryant floor with a Metcalf ceiling, which would be a perfect fit for the Chiefs. I actually had this guy chalked up as a second-round target for the Chiefs because he is that good but he is still available much later than 95 in most mocks so I bumped him down to a round three target for now.

2. Dyami Brown, WR (UNC)

This is another one of my personal favorites and, like Terry, is a receiver that I would be even okay with taking at 63. He doesn’t have quite the physical profile that Terry does (few do) but is a tremendous athlete. Dyami Brown is a speedy receiver who is a very good deep threat while also having the requisite size to be the X receiver the Chiefs are searching for.

Brown is also likely the safer bet of the two and it would not be one bit surprising to see him finish as a top-five receiver in this draft class. To get that with a second or third pick would be an incredible win for the Chiefs.

3. Tylan Wallace, WR (Oklahoma State)

At one point in time, Tylan Wallace looked like he might’ve been the best receiver in this class but he was never able to replicate his 2018 season while at Oklahoma State. Wallace is a technical route runner with great hands. He isn’t the fastest receiver in the draft but still has had some success in the vertical passing game and in contested-catch situations in Stillwater.

The lack of elite speed is somewhat concerning to some draft analysts but just look at guys like Tyler Boyd and Jarvis Landry, who ran pretty slow 40 times, but were still able to carve out success by above average route running.

Landry ran a 4.77 and Wallace recently ran a reported 4.39 40-yard dash. Now the 40 times this year have been disputed a bit but the point still stands, he has the skill set to be a successful NFL receiver even if he only possesses very average speed.

4. Quinn Meinerz, OL (Wisconsin-Whitewater)

Quinn Meinerz was a relatively unknown prospect up until the Senior Bowl where the D-III prospect was often seen dominating Power 5 defensive linemen. Meinerz doesn’t appear to have any crazy physical traits to get excited about but has a good anchor and grip strength. He looks like a day one starter anywhere on the interior.

5. Deonte Brown, OL (Alabama)

Deonte Brown is a MASSIVE man. At 6’3″ and 365 pounds, nobody is going to be able to move this man. Yes, with this size he is going to give up some speed but he moves much better than you would think he should be able to at his size and plenty well enough to be a solid guard in the NFL.

Brown could do next year for the Chiefs what a healthy Keleche Osemele did for them pre-injury last season. I would love to have this big human as Patrick Mahomes’ personal bodyguard for the foreseeable future.
