Best Available Prospects Heading Into 3rd Round of NFL Draft

Here are the top names still on the board after with two full rounds of the 2016 NFL draft in the books:

Joe Dahl, OL, Washington State, (6-4/304)
If this guy is on the board, I'd love him at No. 79. Left tackle in college likely to play guard in the NFL. Will battle for a job right away.

Shon Coleman, OL, Auburn, (6-5/307)
Thought he'd be gone by Round 2. Needs a little coaching but he's immediately ready for the NFL from a physical standpoint.

Where Does Nick Sirianni's Hiring Leave Longtime Eagle Duce Staley?

Le'Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech, (6-5/316)
Physically and athletically this dude is a monster. Technically he's all over the place. A project but he could be a worthy one.

Alex Collins, RB, Arkansas, (5-10/217)
Excellent production. Not a game breaker but a solid back.

Jonathan Williams, RB, Arkansas, (5-11/220)
Ideal size. Williams missed most of 2015, but has the potential to be a dynamic back. Medical checks will be big.

CJ Prosise, RB, Notre Dame, (6-0/220)
Only one-year starter but intriguing. Needs some seasoning but can make plays.

Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech, (5-10/215)
One of the more pro-ready backs that could be available. Not explosive but crazy productive in college and also excellent in the passing game.

Jordan Howard, RB,  Indiana, (6-0/230)
With Howard it's a matter of the player or the system. He put up big numbers but so did Tevin Coleman in 2014. Not sure if he fits Doug Pederson's hybrid West Coast scheme.

Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech, (5-11/187)
He's here because of a knee injury that he attempted to play through. He'd a be a Day 1 pick otherwise. Great balls skills. High risk but the reward could be great.

Deandre Houston-Carson, DB, William & Mary
Two straight picks on FCS players? Risky but Houston-Carson is another hybrid and they're all the rage. Started out at as a corner. Measureables and testing were NFL-caliber.

Charone Peake, WR, Clemson, (6-2/209)
Kind of a one-year wonder but I like his length and ball skills.

Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State, (6-1/201)
Now this would be interesting. The converted quarterback is still learning the nuances of the position but flashed major potential at the Senior Bowl.

Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers, (6-0/211)
Built more like a running back but he's a complete receiver. Struggled with injuries but was extremely productive. Would love to see him in the slot in the NFL.
