SB Nation NFL Mock Draft - Part 3

The picks in the SB Nation NFL Mock Draft are coming fast and furious now and I'm trying to fight through chocolate-induced lethargy.

Interested in seeing how the draft would turn out if dedicated, knowledgeable fans were running your favorite team instead of the knuckleheads you have now?  We have the fantasy impacts right here, the explanations are all at the Seahawks' Field Gulls blog.

11) San Francisco - Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
I don't see him displacing either Bryant Young or Marques Douglas, so he wouldn't have any fantasy value with the 49ers this year.

12) Denver - Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
Branch is better than existing DT Mike Myers so he should start right away but I don't see having fantasy impact this season either.

13) St. Louis - Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
Any replacement for the massive (and massively-overrated) Jimmy Kennedy would an improvement for players in IDP leagues.  You shouldn't have Kennedy on your fantasy team though,  and shouldn't have Okoye either.

14) Carolina - Reggie Nelson, S, Florida
Current Safety Shaun Williams is a free agent, so if the Panthers make this pick they intend Nelson to take over that starting safety slot.  The Panthers have a very good fantasy secondary so Nelson likely wouldn't have much fantasy value.

15) Pittsburgh - Jarvis Moss, DE, Florida
Moss would be penciled right in as the starter at Right Defensive End, with current RDE Brett Keisel likely moving to RLB to replace Joey Porter.   It would be a great fit for Moss and a good possibility for fantasy points.

16) Green Bay - Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal
This pick would be cheese-tastic for fantasy players.  Lynch is a highly touted RB who would brush aside any competition in Green Bay and take sole possession of the starting running back slot.  With decent options (Driver and Jennings) at WR, Lynch doesn't have to carry the entire offense himself.  He should have a very good fantasy year in this situation.

17) Jacksonville - Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
Sorry, what?  With fantasy stud Rashean Mathis on one side and solid veteran Brian Williams on the other side, the Jags don't need another CB.  If they selected Hall, he'd see little time this season and have no fantasy value.

18. Cincinnati  - Darrelle Revis, CB, Pittsburgh
Deltha O'Neal is slowing down and Tory James isn't anything special either so there should be a space for Revis.  If he can keep himself from being arrested like the rest of his teammates he'll have the opportunity.  And as a rookie CB, he should see a lot of balls thrown his way and could have some usable fantasy totals.  

19) Tennessee - Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee
Vince Young has absolutely nobody of fantasy value to throw to, so Meachem would be the Titans' primary receiver from Week One.  He'll be defended accordingly so don't get your hopes up too high but he would be a better fantasy option than Calvin Johnson in Oakland or Tampa.  Definitely keep an eye on him if he's drafted by the Titans.

20) N.Y. Giants - Paul Posluszny, OLB, Penn State
The Giants have their LB corps set, so Posluszny will have to fight for playing time.  Carlos Emmons isn't the long term answer though, so while "Poz" will have limited fantasy value this season (barring an injury),  in keeper leagues he will be highly sought after.
