We have breaking news: Tom Brady was a sixth-round draft pick.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past 20-plus years, you might not have known that the man who has become the NFL’s G.O.A.T. was once the 199th pick, with a skinny and awkward combine picture of him shirtless.
The point is that Day 3 is when the true steals of the draft are made. It is the day the scouts uncover the hidden gems. It is also when championship teams find the right pieces. For a third day, it is a chance for you to test your skills in FOX's Super 6 on the NFL Draft, where you could win $5,000 – absolutely for free.
It’s easy and fun to play. Just download the FOX Super 6 app on your phone or mobile device, answer six questions correctly, and you could hit the jackpot bigger than Mr. Irrelevant. The best part of all is it’s free.
What are the questions you need to answer on Day 3? We're glad you asked.
Which position player will be the first pick of Round 4?
The best bets could be at linebacker, where LSU's Jabril Cox and Duke’s Chris Rumph are the biggest names left. The run at cornerback at the end of Round 3 would make it appear that a defensive back would not likely be the spot at the start of Round 4. There are also some wide receivers, such as Shi Smith and Tylan Wallace, who could be appealing.
Which conference will have the most draft picks in Round 4?
The safe bet has been the SEC on just about every one of these types of questions. After all, there have been 29 SEC players taken through three rounds. One conference to keep an eye on, however, could be the Big 12, which has only six players selected so far.
In which round will the first kicker or punter be drafted?
There’s a chance that Jose Borregales from Miami – who won the Lou Groza Award for best kicker in the country – might be the only kicker drafted. Right now, he projects to roughly a sixth-round draft pick on some mocks.
Which player position will be the final pick of the draft, aka Mr. Irrelevant?
In the past six drafts, only one position has been repeated as Mr. Irrelevant. That was tight end, with Gerald Christian in 2015 and Caleb Wilson in 2019, both to the Cardinals. In fact, the past eight years have seen three tight ends go with the last pick (Justice Cunningham went to the Colts in 2013.)
How many trades will there be on Day 3?
This is when trades tend to get a little weird because teams try to dump picks from this year to get something in what could be a deeper draft next year. A team such as the Eagles, who have four sixth-round picks and two sevenths in a draft that many feel is really only five rounds deep, might package to move up.
How many players from the FCS will be drafted in the seventh round?
This is an interesting question because FCS players didn’t get the normal looks they would get through combines and such this year due to the spring playing of the season. In other words, the looks could be limited, and the numbers could be really low.
