All 32 NFL teams have new players to add to their rosters after three days of the 2021 NFL draft. And while a team's draft is often defined by what it did on Days 1 and 2, finding diamonds in the rough on Day 3 can make all the difference for a championship team. Steals in Rounds 4-7 are key to having an excellent draft class.

By the time Saturday rolled around, there were still a ton of prospects on the board whom we ranked in the top 100 at Pro Football Focus. Obviously, landing a top-100 player in the draft class is going to help a franchise, but getting them at great value in the second half of the draft makes it even sweeter.

So who were the steals of the draft? Which players can slide into impact roles right away despite waiting at least four rounds before hearing their names called? Here are Pro Football Focus' best value picks of the draft, including a pair of Bears selections and plenty of playmakers on both offense and defense. We start with a linebacker who shines in coverage.
