MTB Drop conversion search continues

As a "quarantine" project I've decided to try to find a cheap older and rigid MTB to convert to drop bars, to be used mainly for gravel and light singletrack, but also for grocery runs/light touring. In short, a flexible beater. And while I'm not new to riding bikes, I'm relatively new to building them out/modifying them, so I'm looking for your suggestions/recommendations/wisdom.

Here is what I've found in my area (Baltimore, MD):

-Specialized Hard Rock COMP
-Bridgestone MB5 Trail Blazer
-Specialized Cross Road

Ideally, I talk the seller down to as close to 100 as I can get them.

Thanks for the input in advance!
