NFL Draft prospects 2021: Best players still available for Day 3

(Rankings reflect original positions on Sporting News’ big board of top 100 overall players.)

39. Dylan Moses, ILB, Alabama (6-3, 235 pounds)

Moses picked up where he left off in 2019 after a knee injury wiped out all of last season and took away his chance to be a surefire first-rounder in 2020. Moses has everything you want in an inside linebacker for a 3-4 or 4-3 with his range, instincts, speed and quickness.

47. Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami (6-3, 245 pounds)

Jordan channels some of Pitts’ abilities as a dynamic pass-catcher with fine speed, quickness, athleticism and route-running. He is a willing blocker who can grow in that area with more bulk.

56. Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State (5-11, 193 pounds)

Wallace is a good route-running possession type made for the outside with occasional big-play burst.

58. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC (6-1, 195 pounds)

Brown is a tough, quick inside receiver in the JuJu Smith-Schuster mold of working the slot well.

59. Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina (5-7, 202 pounds)

Carter is an explosive runner who bursts into open field often because of ability to see favorable running lanes and quickly decide to hit them.

60. Trey Smith, G, Tennessee (6-5, 330 pounds)

Smith is a strong interior blocker who uses his hands and feet to consistently win in the running game.

61. Jay Tufele, DT, USC (6-3, 315 pounds)

Tufele is athletic and quick for his size but could get better overall with improved technique.

63. Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami (6-3, 245 pounds)

Roche’s quickness and athleticism sets up him to be an effective pass rush-first outside linebacker in a 3-4.

65. Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State (6-3, 213 pounds)

Nasirildeen can fit any scheme with his size to come up to use his power against the run and also has the quickness for versatile coverage.

66. Chris Rumph II, EDGE, Duke (6-3, 235 pounds)

Rumph is a smart, experienced, technically sound pass rusher who line up as either a 4-3 end or 3-4 outside linebacker.

68. Hamilcar Rashed Jr., EDGE, Oregon State (6-3, 245 pounds)

Rashed plays with high energy and is relentless with his quickness. He just needs some polish with his pass rush and some rounding out against the run.

71. Deonte Brown, G, Alabama (6-3, 364 pounds)

Brown has a massive frame and uses it well to engulf defenders in the running game. He’s made to be a downhill road-grader.

73. Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU (6-3, 362 pounds)

Shelvin is what you would expect to have that massive, powerful frame, a big-time asset against the run but offering little in the pass rush.

74. Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa (6-3, 305 pounds)

Nixon is a quick and explosive interior disruptor who uses his hands and feet well for rare inside pass-rush juice.

76. Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis (5-11, 191 pounds)

Gainwell is a quick, nimble runner who provides good versatility, made to be effective in zone-blocking schemes and with strong receiving skills.

77. Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State (6-1, 194 pounds)

Wade is an active playmaker but his speed and quickness are better suited for inside coverage.

80. Paris Ford, S, Pittsburgh (5-11, 190 pounds)

Ford is another versatile zone safety made for either spot because of his range in coverage and physicality in run support.

83. Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State (6-2, 300 pounds)

He’s a powerful and nasty run stopper who uses his footwork well and is helped by a strong hand punch.

85. Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan (6-1, 232 pounds)

McGrone has great range and is very active from sideline-to-sideline, balanced in getting around vs. the run and in coverage. He projects as a starting middle.

90. Dazz Newsome, WR, North Carolina (5-11, 190 pounds)

He’s a technically sound slot receiver in the Jarvis Landry mold with some good big-play burst after the catch.

BIGGEST NFL DRAFT STEALS:
Round 4 | Round 5 | Round 6 | Round 7

91. Jabril Cox, LB, LSU (6-3, 233 pounds)

Cox is versatile to do anything needed on the second level in different coverages and makes up a lot of ground fast.

94. Ar’Darius Washington, S, TCU (5-8, 178 pounds)

Despite his undersized frame, Washington is highly active with a lot of range for inside coverage with some Tyrann Mathieu-like traits.

95. Seth Williams, WR, Auburn (6-2, 224 pounds)

Williams is made to be a tough possession matchup outside with some field-stretching ability but stands out in the red zone.

96. Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State (6-4, 203 pounds)

Terry has appeal as a home-run hitter for the outside who creates matchup problems because of his size.

97. Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Oklahoma (6-0, 227 pounds)

Stevenson is a powerful downhill run ideal to pound between the tackles and finish drives in the red zone. He also has the quickness and elusiveness to evade would-be tacklers.

98. Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest (6-3, 215 pounds)

Surratt is an outstanding physical receiver with underrated big-play ability who can line up outside or inside.

99. Marlon Williams, WR UCF (6-0, 222 pounds)

Williams has an intriguing skill set as a physical receiver with enough agility to be effective in the slot, like the Colts’ Michael Pittman Jr.

100. Richard LeCounte III, S, Georgia (5-11, 190 pounds)

LeCounte uses all his physical skills well in coverage but needs some work to be trusted consistently against the run.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s retirement from UFC has left a massive void in the UFC’s lightweight division — one that Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will seek to fill on Saturday.

Both Oliveira (30-8-1, eight KOs) and Chandler (22-5, 10 KOs) are coming off multiple wins, setting up a new era-establishing fight for the lightweight division. Will Oliveira earn the belt 11 years after first fighting under the UFC banner? Or will Chandler, fighting for only the second time under UFC since transferring from Bellator, take it?

What time is the Preakness today? Post time, TV channel, horses & more to watch 2021 race

The second jewel of the Triple Crown is up for grabs on Saturday.

The 2021 Preakness Stakes, which will run at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, will help determine whether Medina Spirit can become the first horse since Justify in 2018 to win the Triple Crown. Even if the horse does win Saturday’s race, however, that lofty accomplishment might not be guaranteed.

LIVE: Follow for updates from the 2021 Preakness Stakes

That’s because Medina Spirit returned a test positive for 21 picograms of betamethasone after its win at the 2021 Kentucky Derby. Pimlico decided to let the horse race on Saturday but, if a second test confirms the first, then Churchill Downs will invalidate Medina Spirit’s Derby win and grant runner-up Mandaloun the retroactive victory. The retesting results aren’t expected for several weeks.

Mandaloun is not part of Saturday’s race at the Preakness Stakes.

Just another tantalizing tidbit for bettors and sports fans alike ahead of Saturday’s race, which will include 10 horses and jockeys — including prohibitive morning-line favorite Medina Spirit (9/5 odds).

With that, here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 Preakness Stakes, including the post time and how to watch the event.

What time is the Preakness Stakes today?

  • Date: Saturday, May 15
  • Post time: 6:50 p.m. ET
  • TV coverage: NBC

NBC Sports will cover the Preakness Stakes starting at 2 p.m. ET and transfer coverage to NBC at 5 p.m. The race has a scheduled post time of 6:50 p.m. ET at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

What channel is the Preakness Stakes on?

NBC has full broadcast rights for each of the Triple Crown races, including the Preakness Stakes. Viewers can also stream the race on NBC via fuboTV, which offers a seven-day free trial.
