Worst Picks of Day 3:
Bradley Pinion P San Francisco 49ers (5th Round Pick 29): This was the single most confusing pick of the entire 2015 NFL Draft. The team with arguably the best punter in the NFL takes one in the fifth round. I am a huge advocate of the “Punters Are People Too” movement, but punter is not even close to a need for this football team. It is honestly one of their strongest positions. Andy Lee is only 32-years-old and can easily be one of the best punters in the game for at least another five years.
Malcolm Johnson TE Cleveland Browns (6th Round 19th Pick): This pick was also a very interesting selection. The Browns lost a top-five tight end in Jordan Cameron to free agency and they wait till the sixth round to pick up his replacement? A replacement that ESPN or NFL.com didn’t have a single scouting report on? There were better tight ends on the board like Wes Saxton, and others. Johnson isn’t a great pass catcher but he can block, and the Browns will likely try to use him as an H-back and move him around in motion often. I don’t dislike this pick too much, I just think the Browns should have addressed this need earlier, and they had a tight end in Wes Saxton that I liked much better on the board still.
