And a bonus pick for Texans fans:

Round 3

  1. Houston Texans – Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford

1 – from Washington via trade.
2 – subject to coin flip.
3 – from Indianapolis via trade.
4 – subject to playoff results.
5 – it is my personal policy not to refer to the Washington franchise with a nickname that is unquestionably racist. Thanks to some great artists out there on the Internet, the non-racist possibilities for the nickname have been brought to light. Should the franchise ever change its logo to the one linked here, I will then resume using that nickname.
6 – from Kansas City via trade.

Without a final list of early entrants, I had to do some guessing as to who would declare early and who would stay a year. It really only affected two prospects, as far as I know: With the information I had I decided to project Vic Beasley as staying but David Yankey as declaring.
