  1. Houston Texans: Rashaad Reynolds, CB, Oregon State
    There are a few areas the Texans need to address outside of the quarterback position. They need to find a new second running back, upgrade the outside linebacker position, obtain another tight end and acquire a better nickel.

    Pick change; previously Terrence Brooks, S

  2. Washington Redskins: Cyril Richardson, G/OT, Baylor
    The Redskins signed Shawn Lauvao, but they might be interested in adding another guard if a talented one is available, given that Chris Chester is pretty pedestrian.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
    The Falcons may search for their running back of the future in the middle rounds. Steven Jackson won't be around much longer if he keeps playing like he did in 2013.

  4. New York Jets: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB, Texas
    The Jets have a great interior pass rush, but they need to become more potent on the outside.

    Pick change; previously Dri Archer, RB/WR

  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Chris Watt, G, Notre Dame
    The Jaguars have a major hole at left guard, so they'll have to shore that up to help protect their new quarterback.

  6. Cleveland Browns: E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri
    The Browns could use an upgrade across from Joe Haden, but this pick is about adding needed depth at the position.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Smith, DE/OLB

  7. Oakland Raiders: Brandon Thomas, OT/G, Clemson
    The Raiders signed Austin Howard to play guard. That means they have a gaping hole at right tackle. They'll need to find help to protect their new quarterback.

    Brandon Thomas drops to Round 4 because of his torn ACL, but the Raiders would be lucky to have him, as he could bolster the offensive line.

    Pick change; previously Billy Turner, OT

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Dakota Dozier, G, Furman
    The Vikings can help their new quarterback (as well as Adrian Peterson) with improved interior offensive line play. Charlie Johnson, the weak link on the unit, was retained, but he can't be a starter anymore. Vladimir Ducasse was added, but he may just be a backup.

    Pick change; previously Tre Boston, S

  9. Buffalo Bills: Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
    The Bills have brought in a bunch of running backs, so they could add one in the middle rounds. Fred Jackson is a 33-year-old entering his contract season.

    Pick change; previously Christian Kirksey, LB

  10. St. Louis Rams: Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, G, Canada
    The Rams still have a hole at one of the guard positions, even after retaining Rodger Saffold.

    Pick change; previously Dakota Dozier, G

  11. Detroit Lions: Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
    The Lions have said that they plan on drafting a defensive tackle to push Nick Fairley. There's a chance that'll happen at No. 10 with Aaron Donald, but it's more likely to be a Round 2-4 pick.

    Pick change; previously Caraun Reid, DT

  12. Tennessee Titans: Brent Urban, DE/DT Virginia
    The Titans could use some new pieces for their 3-4 defense, and they're a bit weak up front.

    Pick change; previously Trevor Reilly, DE/OLB

  13. New York Giants: Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA
    The Giants found some linebacker help in free agency, but they still could use another player to strengthen the group.

  14. Jacksonville Jaguars: Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State
    The Jaguars have just one interior defensive lineman who can rush the passer (Sen'Derrick Marks). They may want to add another to bolster their rotation.

  15. New York Jets: Preston Brown, ILB, Louisville
    The Jets may spend a mid-round choice to upgrade their depth at inside linebacker, which is lacking right now.

    Pick change; previously Yawin Smallwood, ILB

  16. Miami Dolphins: Daniel McCullers, NT, Tennessee
    The Dolphins retained Randy Starks, but lost Paul Soliai to the Falcons. Here's a big body to replace him.

  17. Chicago Bears: Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB, Boston College
    The Bears must add some much-needed talent to their very thin linebacking corps.

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
    The Steelers have to address the cornerback position. Ike Taylor was dreadful this past year, as the receivers he battled - save for A.J. Green, oddly enough - posted season-high totals against him.

    Pick change; previously Brent Urban, DE/DT

  19. Dallas Cowboys: Chris Smith, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    The Cowboys need another pass-rusher, so expect them to add a defensive end in the first few rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
    Last year's second-round pick, Kevin Minter, will likely start for the departed Karlos Dansby. Depth is needed at inside linebacker, however.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Will Clarke, DE/DT, West Virginia
    As mentioned earlier, the Packers are trying to get much faster on defense. They also need help up front, as B.J. Raji signed back on for just one more year.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford
    Philadelphia's defense was terrible for many reasons, one of which is the safety position. Malcolm Jenkins was signed, but help is still needed there. Nate Allen is just too unreliable to be one of the starters.

    Pick change; previously Dontae Johnson, S

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
    The Bengals will keep sticking with Andy Dalton, but they'll need to develop a quarterback just in case Dalton can't get them over the first-round hump.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Dri Archer, RB/WR, Kent State
    The Chiefs will be looking to add a running back, as Knile Davis is not expected to be ready for the 2014 season.

    Pick change; previously Lache Seastrunk, RB

  25. San Diego Chargers: Terrance Mitchell, CB, Oregon
    It should surprise no one if the Chargers double up on the cornerback position in the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Rashaad Reynolds, CB

  26. New Orleans Saints: Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB, USC
    I've moved off mocking a pass-rusher to the Saints in the first round, but the team could still use some depth at outside linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Chris Davis, CB

  27. Cleveland Browns: Brock Vereen, S, Minnesota
    The Browns need safety depth and perhaps someone to challenge Tashaun Gipson for the starting job.

    Pick change; previously Kenny Ladler, S

  28. Carolina Panthers: Christian Kirksey, LB, Iowa
    The Panthers could stand to add more depth at linebacker.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech
    The 49ers have so many picks that they'll probably use a mid-rounder on a developmental quarterback. Jim Harbaugh has shown interest in Logan Thomas.

  30. New England Patriots: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa
    With Aaron Hernandez gone forever and Rob Gronkowski coming off a serious knee injury, the Patriots may want to bring in another talented tight end.

  31. Denver Broncos: Robert Herron, WR, Wyoming
    Wes Welker will be a 34-year-old free agent next spring, so the Broncos may want to think about bringing in a young slot receiver.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
    The Seahawks will also need depth at corner, given that Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond both left.

    Pick change; previously Xavier Grimble, TE

  33. Detroit Lions: Shaquille Richardson, CB, Arizona
    The Lions may not go with a cornerback early, but they'll have to address the position at some point during this draft.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Coleman, WR

  34. Baltimore Ravens: Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina
    The Ravens don't have much depth at corner, so they may use one of their new compensatory picks to fix that.

  35. Houston Texans: Xavier Grimble, TE, USC
    The Texans are looking to add a new tight end after cutting Owen Daniels.

    Pick change; previously Arthur Lynch, TE

  36. Detroit Lions: Jon Halapio, G, Florida
    More interior offensive line depth for the Lions, who are really hurting in that area.

  37. New York Jets: Dontae Johnson, S, N.C. State
    The Jets have to address more issues in their secondary. They signed Ed Reed during the season, but that didn't work out so well.

    Pick change; previously Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB

  38. Baltimore Ravens: Justin Ellis, NT, Louisiana Tech
    The Ravens plan on moving Haloti Ngata outside, so they'll need to add some competition and/or depth at nose tackle.

  39. Atlanta Falcons: Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia
    Tony Gonzalez could always return, but the Falcons need to add another tight end because chances are that he's gone for good.

    Pick change; previously Crockett Gilmore, TE

  40. New England Patriots: Jordan Tripp, OLB, Montana
    The Patriots want to add a speedy linebacker, which is why they brought in Wesley Woodyard for a visit. They couldn't sign him, so they'll have to acquire one in the draft instead.
