The Lions found three players they hope will help in 2016 and beyond, but heading into Day 3 of the draft, they still have seven picks remaining.

All of those picks except the compensatory selection in the seventh round can be traded, so don’t be surprised in general manager Bob Quinn starts making moves after standing pat the first two days.

Here are 15 prospects who could help the Lions on Day 3 of the draft:

WR Rashard Higgins, Colorado State

SS Jeremy Cash, Duke

DT Andrew Billings, Baylor

RB Kenneth Dixon, Louisiana Tech

DE Matt Judon, Grand Valley State

QB Kevin Hogan, Stanford

SS Jayron Kearse, Clemson

RB Jordan Howard, Indiana

LB Joshua Perry, Ohio State

CB Ryan Smith, North Carolina Central

WR Keyarris Garrett, Tulsa

DT Hassan Ridgeway, Texas

QB Brandon Doughty, Western Kentucky

SS Kavon Frazier, Central Michigan

TE David Morgan, Texas-San Antonio
