Scout's Eye: Five Players To Watch On Draft Day 3

IRVING, Texas -- Scout's Eye takes a look at five players to watch on Day 3 of the NFL draft:

Telvin Smith                      Florida State       LB           6-3          218         4.49

  • Don't let the weight fool you, this guy plays much better than his size. Can be a physical player when it comes to taking on blocks, shedding and making in the play. In the typical style of the Florida State players on defense, he can really run. Very hard to go wide on him because of the speed he has. Will need some work in coverage aspects but has tools to work with. See as a WILL linebacker in this scheme.

Jeoffrey Pagen                Alabama                              DL           6-3          310         4.82

  • Really like this guy as a potential three technique despite his size. When this guy is on his game, can be very hard to deal with. Did a very nice job of matching the power of Greg Robinson of Auburn when they got hooked up. Showed the ability to play with a quick arm over move to help him with his pass rush. Was a snap or two where he as a tick late off the ball but would not say that is a huge problem. Hard to block on the move.

Bashaud Breeland                           Clemson                              CB           5-11       197         4.61

  • Played as a press man corner back at Clemson but might be a better fit as a safety. Very good with his hands on the jam. Will not give the receiver much space. Shows the ability to turn and run with his man. Would like to see him get his head around quicker to locate the ball on the fade. Like his ability to project inside and play with range to help there.

Devin Street                      Pittsburgh           WR         6-2          198         4.55

  • Physically reminds me of Andre Holmes of the Raiders when you study him on tape. Long, rangy build with the ability to make plays. Smooth route runner. Will see him line up in the slot at times which is surprising because I didn't see the initial quickness for that. Is a long strider that builds speed as he goes. Will catch the ball on all levels and hands appear to be natural.

Kevin Pierre-Lewis                         Boston College  LB           6-0          232         4.51

  • Shows a real ease of movement. Explosive quickness. Can work through the trash with the best of them. Flow, strike and tackle. Can really find the ball. Is a blur when he plays. Will attack the ball. Can really run, along with Ryan Shazier might be the guy on film that moves the fastest when you study them. Huge fan of this guy.
