2011 NFL Draft: Complete List Of Third Round Picks

The third round featured the end to the biggest slide in the 2011 NFL Draft as Ryan Mallett was finally taken by the New England Patriots. With Bill Belichick at the helm and Tom Brady manning the quarterback spot, the Patriots provide Mallett, whose character concerns are well-documented, a soft landing spot and good chances for success. We also saw the Seattle Seahawks make their second choice and a local product was taken in the third round.

Mason Foster, the tackling machine from Washington, was chosen by Tampa Bay with the 20th pick in the third round. Foster's stock had been rising, with many believe he may end up in the mid-second round ahead of the draft. But even with a third round selection, Foster should be happy with where he was picked, and has a good chance to contribute with the Buccaneers.

Here is the full list of picks, including the Seattle Seahawks selection of John Moffitt.
