There is still some big-name NFL Draft prospects available heading into Day 3 of the annual event Saturday morning.
That includes a star defensive back from the defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs who was considered a first-round lock heading into the 2022 season.
While all of the top quarterbacks in the class are off the board through two days, there are still two who you want to pay attention to on Saturday. Let’s take a look at the top-30 NFL Draft prospects remaining with four rounds to go.

1. Adetomiwa Adebawore, EDGE, Northwestern
At 6-foot-2, Adebawore is somewhat short for an edge pass rusher. But it’s hard to beat the type of explosiveness, production and pass-rush moves he has displayed over the years. Over the course of the past three seasons at Northwestern, Adebawore recorded a combined 23.5 tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks.
2. Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State
At 6-foot-8 and 374 pounds, Jones is a mountain of a man. Surprisingly, Ohio State’s right tackle of the past couple seasons also boasts short-area quickness to defeat shiftier edge rushers on the outside. While there will be some initial issues in pass protection, he’s already a plus-level run blocker. Some team will take a chance on Jones early on Friday.

3. Kelee Ringo, DB, Georgia
One of the most-divisive NFL Draft prospects heading into the week, it is still surprising that Ringo finds himself on the board. He was productive over the past two seasons at Georgia, recording a combined 15 passes defended and four interceptions. The major concern here is whether he has the speed to play cornerback. Some teams view him as more of a safety, which has impacted Ringo’s NFL Draft stock.
4. Darius Rush, CB, South Carolina
Boasting a 6-foot-2, 198-pound frame, Rush has the size to line up on the outside in the NFL. He also shows surprising speed for someone his size. While inconsistency was an issue at South Carolina, Rush did record 15 passes defended and three interceptions in his final two seasons with the Gamecocks.
5. Henry To’oTo’o, LB, Alabama
Henry To’oto’o saw his stock as an NFL Draft prospect fall some due to his inability to play three downs at the next level. He’s just not fluid in coverage. However, we’re talking about someone who can go sideline-to-sideline while making plays against the run and finding himself in the backfield. He recorded eight tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks last season.

6. Jake Haener, QB, Fresno State
The reigning Senior Bowl MVP stands at only 6-foot and doesn’t necessarily match up physically with other NFL Draft prospects at quarterback. However, he can flat out ball. Haener completed 72% of his passes for nearly 2,900 yards with 20 touchdowns against three interceptions last season. He has above-average accuracy and a decent enough arm to make it in the NFL.
7. Blake Freeland, OT, BYU
At 6-foot-8 and 302 pounds, Freeland will have to gain some weight at the next level. He’s pretty darn good in pass protection at this point and fits more in a zone-blocking scheme as a right tackle. There will be a lot of interest in him early Friday.
8. Roschon Johnson, RB, Texas
Johnson’s teammate at Texas, Bijan Robinson, was among the most notable NFL Draft prospects leading up to the annual event. But that doesn’t mean Robinson can’t make a name for himself at the next level. Johnson averaged over six yards per touch while compiling 1,334 total yards and 11 touchdowns over the past two seasons. He could develop into a starter at the next level.
9. Braeden Daniels, G, Utah
Versatility. Daniels started 11-plus games at left guard, left tackle and right tackle during his career in college. At 294 pounds, he showed well during athletic tests at the NFL Scouting Combine. Of course, he’s also going to have to put some more mass on that frame to play at a high clip at the next level.
10. Clark Phillips, CB, Utah
The 5-foot-10 Phillips was absolutely great for Utah last season, recording six passes defended and six interceptions. He’s a true ball-hawk in every sense of the term. Surprisingly, he is also pretty damn good in press coverage. Phillips could be a steal in Day 3 of the NFL Draft.
