This is the live blog for Day 3 of the NFL Draft. I will update this with information and analysis from my living room.
9:07 The Panthers take tight end Ian Thomas from Indiana with the first pick in Round 4.
9:21 The Colts take running back Nyheim Hines from North Carolina State with the 104th pick. Check out the players the Colts have drafted so far: G Quenton Nelson, LB Darius Leonard, G Braden Smith, DE Kemoko Turay, DE Tyquan Lewis and Hines. Great draft so far. Colts GM Chris Ballard is terrific.
9:29 The Giants take quarterback Kyle Lauletta from Richmond with the 108th pick. That’s the quarterback some people expected the Patriots to draft. They have the 114th pick.
9:54 The Cowboys take defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr. from Kansas with the 116th pick. Armstrong is one of my favorite edge rushers in the draft. The 49ers should have traded up for him.
9:56 Todd McShay said Armstrong played with a partially torn ACL last season. That explains why his production fell. He’s going to be terrific in the NFL.
10:00 Random thought: I wonder if Scot McCloughan pushed the Browns to draft Nick Chubb in Round 2. McCloughan drafted Frank Gore in 2005, and Gore and Chubb are similar. Both blew out knees in college. Both are tough, instinctual runners.
10:26 The 49ers take DE Kentavius Street from North Carolina State with the 128th pick. Stay tuned for my analysis.
