There are still a lot of talented prospects available in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. However, with this much talent still on the board, some prospects are likely going to drop further than expected.

Here are three prospects who could fall out of the second round of the NFL Draft on Friday night.

Rock Ya-Sin is one of the best corners on the board, but there hasn't been much interest in defensive backs thus far. Deandre Baker was the only corner that went in the first round Thursday night, and talents like Greedy Williams, Byron Murphy and Joejuan Williams are still on the board. With this many cornerbacks still available, Ya-Sin could fall further into then third round.

Similarly, there are still a ton of dynamic receivers available in the second round as well. Players like D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel and Parris Campbell are all still on the board, which could make it another long night for Hakeem Butler. Part of the reason Butler could fall is the concern surrounding his ability to move laterally. The same can be said of Metcalf, but he's faster and bigger than Butler. As things currently stand, it wouldn't be a surprise if Butler fell out of the second round.

If Miles Sanders ends up falling out of the second round, it's likely through no fault of his own. Sanders was a monster at Penn State last season, tallying 1,274 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the ground. Unfortunately, the running back position has been devalued as a whole recently. While Alabama's Josh Jacobs was selected with the No. 24 pick last night, he was the only running back taken in the first round. Sanders is a great back, but he may have to wait until the third round to hear his name called.
