2019 NFL Draft rumors live blog: Latest Day 3 news, reports, buzz


The fourth through seventh rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft are underway on Saturday afternoon in Nashville.

The draft is set to finish with the final 152 picks. Plenty of talented players were still on the board to start the day, including Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Hakeem Butler, Riley Ridley, and others, but they will all come off the board during the day.

Day 2 saw the New England Patriots add a number of players and bring their draft-day haul to five players. They are armed with seven picks on Day 3, three in the fourth round and four in the seventh, and they figure to be able to move around at will if a player they like slips. Either way, they will add plenty of depth to their roster.

Keep it right here throughout the afternoon as we track all the notable trade rumors, reports and overall buzz from the third day of the 2019 NFL Draft.

6:30 p.m.: With their final pick in the draft, the New England Patriots selected Ole Miss cornerback, Ken Webster.

4:57 p.m.: We're now into the seventh and final round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Patriots have one pick, and they have still yet to add a tight end. Here are some of Phil Perry's prototypical Patriots at the tight end position.

4:20 p.m.: With the 199th pick, affectionately known as the Tom Brady pick, the Indianapolis Colts picked Ole Miss defensive end Gerri Green from Mississippi State. He had 8.5 career stats.

4:16 p.m.: Trace McSorley has come off the board. He will go to the Baltimore Ravens with the 197th pick. The Penn State quarterback was one of the more polarizing players in the draft, and he will compete with Robert Griffin III.

3:23 p.m.: The Browns selected a kicker with their fifth-round pick that they acquired from the Patriots in the Josh Gordon trade.

3:07 p.m.: The Patriots tapped into their extra supply of seventh-round picks to move up in the fifth round twice. As a result, they now have one pick remaining, which will come in the seventh round.

3:05 p.m.: The Patriots select Stanford punter Jake Bailey with the 163rd pick after trading up

2:56 p.m.: Patriots trade up to select Maryland defensive lineman Byron Cowart with the 159th pick

2:30 p.m.: Hunter Renfrow seemed like a potential Patriots pick, but the Raiders scooped him up before they could. It must have been Mike Mayock's mission, especially since Renfrow was the third Clemson player that the Raiders drafted.

2:27 p.m.: Fun fact: Jarrett's Stidham has a connection to another notable sports team. The Houston Rockets. Stidham's fiance's father is the CEO of the team. Currently, the Rockets' GM, Daryl Morey, also has ties to Boston, as he was formerly the SVP of Operations for the Boston Celtics.

2:21 p.m.: Think the Patriots and Rams became enemies at the Super Bowl? Well, think again. They've already traded three times in this draft class.

2:03 p.m.: The Buccaneers drafted kicker, Matt Gay, from Utah with the 145th pick. He and Mitch Wishnowsky (punter, fourth-round) were the first specialists off the board, and both played at Utah.

1:49 p.m.: The Eagles wrap up Round 4 by taking Shareef Miller from Penn State. The next Patriots pick will take place at 162.

1:45 p.m.: The Patriots traded the 134th pick and 243rd pick to the Los Angeles Rams for picks 162 and 167. The Rams selected DT Greg Gaines at 134.

1:40 p.m.: Patriots draft QB Jarrett Stidham out of Auburn with the 133rd pick

1:15 p.m.: Patriots draft OL Hjalte Froholdt from Arkansas with the 118th pick

1:09 p.m.: The Titans traded up ahead of both the Lions and the Patriots to take safety Amani Hooker. Hooker, another prototypical Patriot, could have been a target for either the Lions or Pats.

12:59 p.m.: The Saints traded up to draft Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, a defensive back from Florida and prototypical Patriot.

12:00 p.m.: The third day of the 2019 NFL Draft got underway. The Cardinals kick things off by taking WR Hakeem Butler with the first pick in Round 4.
