After two days of seemingly endless trades, big surprises, bargain picks and questionable decisions, the 2023 NFL Draft heads into its final day with plenty of intrigue still simmering in Kansas City.
There’s still a ton of talented players left on the board, including a handful of names many expected to come off the board much earlier. Day 3 is where NFL teams are able to fill out the bottom of their roster with players who can make an immediate impact on special teams, and perhaps develop into starting material down the road.
As we head into the final day of this year’s draft, here’s a look at how the fourth round could turn out:
103. Chicago Bears: Ohio State OL Luke Wypler
More offensive line help for Justin Fields, this time along the interior.
104. Houston Texans: Northwestern DL Adetomiwa Adebawore
Houston needs interior help along the defensive front, and Adebawore has rare athleticism and versatility.
105. Houston Texans (from ARI): Georgia CB Kelee Ringo
Pure value pick for the Texans here, as Ringo has the upside to eventually start across from Derek Stingley.
106. Indianapolis Colts: Ohio State OT Dawand Jones
Indy fills their need at tackle with a bargain pick, grabbing a massive mountain of a blocker in Jones.
107. New England Patriots (from LAR): BYU OT Blake Freeland
The Pats finally grab the tackle they need, landing an impressive athlete in Freeland who could be a Week 1 starter.
108. Seattle Seahawks (from DEN): Bowling Green DL Karl Brooks
Seattle gets some much-needed help for the interior of their defensive line with an underrated prospect.
109. Las Vegas Raiders: Maryland OT Jaelyn Duncan
Another offensive tackle off the board, as the Raiders keep reloading the trenches to help protect Jimmy Garoppolo.
110. Indianapolis Colts (from TEN via ATL): Texas A&M S Antonio Johnson
A value pick for the back end of the Indy defense, as they land a safety who could have come off the board in the second round.
111. Cleveland Browns: Clemson EDGE K.J. Henry
The Browns bolster their rotation of pass rushers on the edge with Henry, who has intriguing physical tools and upside.
112. New York Jets: Old Dominion OL Nick Saldiveri
More offensive line help for Aaron Rodgers, as the Jets grab a versatile blocker that can play either guard or tackle.
113. Atlanta Falcons: Utah CB Clark Phillips III
A huge steal for the Falcons, who land one of this year’s top slot corners in Phillips, who was a big-play magnet throughout his career.
114. Carolina Panthers: Alabama CB Eli Ricks
Carolina adds another big, athletic corner with length and ball skills to an already young and promising defense.
115. New Orleans Saints: North Carolina State OL Chandler Zavala
Finally, some help for the offensive trenches in New Orleans. Zavala is a massive mauler of a guard who fills a huge need for the Saints.
116. Green Bay Packers: Boise State S JL Skinner
Skinner is coming off an injury, but once he’s back to full strength, he could be a steal for the Packers at a position of need.
117. New England Patriots: Wake Forest WR A.T. Perry
Mac Jones needs more size in the wide receiver room, and Perry’s massive frame and impressive arm length would fit the bill.
118. Washington Commanders: Old Dominion TE Zack Kuntz
Sam Howell and Jacoby Brissett can an added boost to the passing game with this underrated tight end prospect who brings elite athleticism to the table.
119. Minnesota Vikings (from DET): UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson
The Vikings wisely invest in an understudy for Kirk Cousins, grabbing a high-upside passer with tons of starting experience.
120. New England Patriots (from PIT): Illinois RB Chase Brown
New England loves to have a deep committee in the offensive backfield, and Brown is a complete back who could make an instant impact in the rotation.
121. Jacksonville Jaguars (from TB): Purdue CB Cory Trice
The Jags need an outside corner with size and length, and Trice checks both boxes, along with impressive athleticism for his big frame.
122. Arizona Cardinals (from MIA via KC, DET): Pitt RB Israel Abanikanda
More help for Kyler Murray, as the Cards bolster their depth in the offensive backfield with an impressive athlete who brings tons of production to the next level.
123. Seattle Seahawks: Michigan OL Olusegun Oluwatimi
Seattle grabs some help for the interior of the offensive line here, landing a versatile blocker who can line up at either guard or center.
124. Baltimore Ravens: Stanford CB Kyu Blu Kelly
This secondary needs as much help as it can get, and Kelly is the son of a productive pro in former Bucs corner Brian Kelly.
125. Los Angeles Chargers: Texas RB Roschon Johnson
With Austin Ekeler possibly seeking a trade, the Chargers have a great opportunity to land a starting-caliber running back in Johnson.
126. Cleveland Browns (from MIN): Auburn LB Owen Pappoe
More speed on defense for the Browns, who add a blazing fast linebacker prospect with immediate special teams value and starter potential.
127. Jacksonville Jaguars: Florida State S Jammie Robinson
Another value pick for the Jags’ secondary, as they add an undersized but feisty safety prospect in Robinson, who impressed at this year’s Senior Bowl.
128. Los Angeles Rams (from NYG): Cincinnati WR Tyler Scott
This offense desperately needs more explosiveness at wide receiver, and Scott would be the perfect fit, as well as being a huge bargain at this point in the draft.
129. Dallas Cowboys: Nebraska WR Trey Palmer
Back-to-back speed receivers come off the board, as the Cowboys give Dak Prescott a burner of a pass-catcher in Palmer to help stretch the field.
130. Jacksonville Jaguars (from BUF): Oregon LB Noah Sewell
The Jags add more depth on defense with Sewell, a highly productive linebacker who can make an instant impact on special teams.
131. Cincinnati Bengals: Georgia RB Kenny McIntosh
Joe Mixon’s future in Cincy might be in doubt, so the Bengals would be wise to grab a running back here who can become the starter if needed.
132. Pittsburgh Steelers (from SF via CAR): Army EDGE Andre Carter II
Carter’s production dropped off last season, and his combine performance was forgettable, but the Steelers might still see some upside at a position where they need depth.
133. Chicago Bears (from PHI): Mississippi RB Zach Evans
There’s not much left at the EDGE spot, where the Bears need help the most, but they can still add value with a dynamic running back to give Justin Fields more firepower.
134. Kansas City Chiefs: UAB RB DeWayne McBride
Don’t be surprised if the Chiefs add depth to their running back room in this range. McBride is a big, productive back who is among the more underrated players in this draft.
135. New England Patriots: Texas DL Keondre Coburn
Another versatile defensive lineman for the Pats, who grab a do-it-all prospect for the interior who can play any spot in the trenches.
