3. Joe Evans, EDGE, Iowa

The Hawkeyes' offense was putrid, but the defense was among the best in the country once again. Evans was a classic Big Ten end who gutted out high-volume production on the back of a relentless motor while simultaneously overwhelming opponents with crazy athleticism.

Evans finished his five-year Iowa career with 28 sacks. Evans recorded better 3-cone and shuttle times than any of the edge rushers at the NFL Combine, and he tallied a solid 4.67 40-yard dash at 252 pounds. While a bit small at 6-1, Evans' production and solid athleticism could make him a worthwhile backup who works his way into the rotation.

UDFA WR Dayton Wade could make the Baltimore Ravens

2. Dayton Wade, WR, Ole Miss

While Wade is coming from an offense that is nothing even close to what he will experience in the pros and clocks in at a very tiny 5-9 and 175 pounds, his speed and overall athletic talent helped him take off as one of Jaxson Dart's best downfield playmakers during his two years as a Rebel.

Wade recorded 803 yards on 55 catches last year, showing some serious separation skills and elusiveness as a ball carrier. While Deonte Harty has some equity built up in the league as a returner, it's not crazy to envision a future in which Wade ends up filling the same role at the back end of the depth chart.
