The 2017 NFL draft is almost halfway over with the second and third rounds happening Friday night. The Packers kicked off the action with a very good pick, getting Kevin King. The Jaguars got an A for their second-round pick, Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson.
Unfortunately for everyone except Patriots fans, New England may have gotten the best pick of the third round. They took Derek Rivers, a defensive end from Youngstown State. Rivers who a lot of experts thought had enough talent for the first round.

Tampa Bay added another weapon for the offense, getting Chris Goodwin the wide receiver out of Penn State. Just think, the 49ers couldve had Alshon Jeffery or T.Y. Hilton, who went in the second and third rounds, respectively. Drafting receivers is always a crapshoot, but it stings when you miss on one with a precious round one pick. He was active for exactly three games as a rookie and targeted just once. The 49ers swapped disappointing, over-drafted receivers with the Chiefs a year later, sending Jenkins to Kansas City in exchange for Jonathan Baldwin, neither of whom happen to be in the league anymore.

Kalils career got off to a strong start after being drafted by the Vikings with the fourth overall pick. But he went downhill from there, consistently allowing pressure and being flagged for penalties. Knee injuries may have contributed, and he had arthroscopic surgery on both knees following the 2015 season. A hip injury that required surgical repair sidelined him for most of 2016, and hell get a fresh start with the Carolina Panthers after signing with them in free agency.
