Don't Sleep on Saturday

Ten intriguing prospects who may still be around waiting for rounds four through seven on Day 3

Kenjon Barner RBOregon

This is an article from the April 29, 2013 issue

It wasn't only Chip Kelly's system that allowed this low-mileage back to rush for 1,767 yards and 6.3 yards a carry in 2012.

Matt Scott QBArizona

At 6'2", 213 pounds, he's not as big as Colin Kaepernick, but the Wildcat's skill set is similar.

Devin Taylor DESouth Carolina

Oregon pass rusher Dion Jordan will go in the first round; Taylor is a bigger, slightly less athletic version.

Michael Mauti LBPenn State

The powerful and poised defender who helped keep Penn State's 2012 team together will be great in the locker room and just as good on the field—if he can stay healthy.

Conner Vernon WRDuke

Piled up big numbers for the undermanned Blue Devils (85 catches, 1,074 yards, eight TDs) even with defenses loading up to stop him.

Denard Robinson RB/WR/KR/QBMichigan

For a team with imagination, think Percy Harvin—without the attitude.

Zac Stacy RBVanderbilt

Averaged 5.5 yards per carry in the SEC despite not playing behind Alabama's line.

A.J. Klein LBIowa State

Intense and intelligent, he'll win some team's MLB job and hold it for years.

Brandon Jenkins DEFlorida State

Before a foot injury, he was considered better than teammates Bjoern Werner and Tank Carradine.

Jake Stoneburner TEOhio State

At 6'3" and 252 pounds with a 4.65 40, Stoneburner could be another Gronk.
