We take a look at the best players still available ahead of Day 3 of the NFL Draft, featuring Rounds 4 through 7.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Practice Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft is a wrap, and the first three rounds are officially a wrap. We’ll finish off the draft Saturday, with Rounds 4 through 7 starting at 12 p.m. ET. After that, undrafted free agency will get underway the best remaining players.

As usual, the second day of the NFL Draft was not as eventful and did not feature the same build up as the opening round, but plenty of teams made upgrades to their teams, and it was a fun night in Cleveland. Looking ahead to Day 3, there is still plenty of talent on the board highlighted by former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker Dylan Moses, Oklahoma State Cowboys wide receiver Tylan Wallace and North Carolina Tar Heels running back Michael Carter.

With that, let’s take a look at our rankings of the best players available ahead of Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft.
