ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper had projected Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief as a solid bet to go somewhere in the second round.
In a draft deep with wide receiver talent, Moncrief was the 13th receiver drafted, going in the third round to the Colts with the 90th overall pick.
Seven wide receivers were selected in the second round.
Southern Cal’s Marquise Lee went with the 39th pick to the Bills, Vanderbilt’s Jordan Matthews with the 42nd pick to the Eagles and Colorado’s Paul Richardson with the 45th pick to the Seahawks.
Washington’s Bishop Sankey (No. 54 to the Titans), Indiana’s Cody Latimer (No. 56 to the Broncos), Penn State’s Allen Robinson (No. 61 to the Jaguars), LSU’s Jarvis Landry (No. 63 to the Dolphins) and Oregon’s Josh Huff (No. 86 to Eagles) also were picked before Moncrief, who was the first wide receiver off the board in the third round.
Another wide receiver, John Brown of Pittsburgh State, was selected by the Cardinals with the pick after the Colts took Moncrief.
Five wide receivers were taken in the first round on Thursday.
