Day 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft is here, and many great prospects are still waiting for their names to be called so they can begin living out their NFL dreams.

If there is one player that can help solidify another great Cincinnati Bengals draft class, it may just be Rutgers’ Khaseem Greene, whom Yahoo Sports has as one of the best-available players left on the board:

"Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers: Fits the NFL’s recent trends favoring quicker, lighter linebackers who can move in space and roll in coverage. Better open-field tackler than some linebackers already taken off the board, and has some potential as a blitzer. Has probably topped out physically at 6-foot-1 and 241-pounds, and the lack of height may have teams wondering."

He’s actually with his former Scarlet Knights teammate and current Bengals receiver, Mohamed Sanu. Hopefully, they are reunited today.

Here’s some other notable prospects left:

Matt Barkley, QB, USC

Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse

Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech

Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama

Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA

Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State

Barrett Jones, C/G, Alabama

Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas

Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse
