Every year at this time, we hear how important Day 3 is. Because it's true. It's the time to fill out important depth that sees the field after injuries hit later in the season and the really good scouting staffs can discover future Pro Bowlers in the fourth round and beyond. 

Speaking of the fourth round, that starts in a few hours. Here's a mock of how that round could unfold. 

OK, let's get to it.

Tampa Bay

Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
74th
