The third day of the NFL Draft 2020 should be named Separation Day.
With 106 players off the board and a quick overnight turnaround, Saturday is when winning teams uncover gems and losing teams fall short on depth. Of the players on season-opening rosters in 2019, 63.5 percent were taken in the fourth-through-seventh rounds or entered the league undrafted, per OvertheCap.com.
Here are The Post’s 10 Day 3 sleepers — either small-school stars or unheralded players from major programs — based on a mix of observations and input from league personnel:
QB Cole McDonald, Hawaii, 6-foot-3, 215 pounds
None of the other quarterbacks produced by pass-happy Hawaii in the last two decades made a splash in the NFL, but McDonald works through reads like a pro. He toned down an unorthodox throwing motion but still needs to limit turnovers (30 in two years as a starter).
RB/WR Antonio Gibson, Memphis, 6-0, 228
Forget penciling him in at one position. The risk-taking visionary who ends up with this 4.39-second speedster will salivate over 14 touchdowns scored on 77 career offensive touches (33 carries, 44 receptions). He returns and covers kicks, too.
