  1. Houston Texans: Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA
    The Texans have to find some help at inside linebacker, given that they don't have much outside of Brian Cushing.

  2. Washington Redskins: Loucheiz Purifoy, CB, Florida
    The Redskins just re-signed DeAngelo Hall, but he won't be around much longer. More corner depth is needed.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB, Coastal Carolina
    Toby Gerhart will probably prove to be a big disappointment, so the Jaguars should be prepared with another running back.

  4. Cleveland Browns: Devon Kennard, DE/OLB, USC
    Paul Kruger predictably failed to live up to his price tag this past season. The Browns may want to bring in another pass-rusher if they have plans on releasing Kruger after the 2014 season.

  5. Houston Texans: Jemea Thomas, CB/S, Georgia Tech
    The Texans may consider a safety in the middle rounds as competition for D.J. Swearinger, who struggled last year. They also need a nickel.

  6. Atlanta Falcons: Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami
    As you can read in our 2014 NFL Draft Rumors page, offensive line coach Mike Tice really took a liking to Seantrel Henderson at the Senior Bowl.

  7. Chicago Bears: De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
    The Bears need a running back behind Matt Forte, and De'Anthony Thomas would be a nice fit for Marc Trestman's offense.

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Anthony Steen, G, Alabama
    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.

  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ricardo Allen, CB, Purdue
    The Buccaneers could use some depth at cornerback and perhaps someone to eventually challenge Johnthan Banks.

    Pick change; previously Kendall James, CB

  10. Tennessee Titans: Ed Stinson, DE/DT, Alabama
    The Titans could use some new pieces for their 3-4 defense, and they're a bit weak up front.

  11. New York Giants: Richard Rodgers, TE, California
    The Giants won't take Eric Ebron at No. 12, but they could spend a mid- or late-round selection on a tight end.

  12. St. Louis Rams: Xavier Grimble, TE, USC
    The Rams could use another tight end now, and perhaps one to eventually replace the predictably disappointing Jared Cook.

  13. Detroit Lions: Larry Webster, DE, Bloomsburg
    The Lions will be interested in adding another defensive end after losing Willie Young to rival Chicago.

  14. Miami Dolphins: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan
    The Dolphins almost have to spend multiple picks on offensive linemen, considering what happened last year.

  15. Chicago Bears: Jake Murphy, TE, Utah
    The Bears have gone all defense thus far, but they could take a break and add a piece to their offense. They could use another tight end.

  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: John Urschel, G, Penn State
    The Steelers don't have a big need for offensive linemen, despite what some might think, but they do have to find some depth.

  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, OT/G, Canada
    After allowing Branden Albert to walk, the Chiefs will want to address the tackle position at some point during the middle rounds if they can't do anything about it in free agency.

  18. Baltimore Ravens: Charles Leno, OT/G, Boise State
    The Ravens need some depth on their offensive line, so they could use a late-round selection on another blocker.

  19. New York Jets: Dez Southward, S, Wisconsin
    Here's more safety help to fix one of the worst secondaries in the NFL.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Howard Jones, DE/OLB, Shepherd
    It wouldn't surprise me if the Cardinals spent two picks on pass-rushers, considering their need.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Kapri Bibbs, RB, Colorado State
    Ron Zook, an assistant coach with the Packers, tried to recruit Kapri Bibbs to Illinois, but failed to do so because of academics.

  22. New England Patriots: Bennett Jackson, CB, Notre Dame
    Bennett Jackson is a good fit for the Patriots, who need cornerback depth.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford
    Here's some secondary depth for the Bengals.

    Pick change; previously Ricardo Allen, CB

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Lonnie Ballentine, S, Memphis
    The Chiefs could use depth at safety, and they've shown interest in Lonnie Ballentine.

  25. San Diego Chargers: Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB, USC
    The Chargers may want to add another pass-rusher late in the draft, considering that they face Peyton Manning twice per season.

  26. New Orleans Saints: Prince Shembo, DE/OLB, Notre Dame
    The Saints may also add another pass-rusher late. Victor Butler can't be counted on.

  27. Indianapolis Colts: Chris Davis, CB, Auburn
    The Colts managed to retain Vontae Davis, but they still have a big need at corner. If you don't believe me, go back and watch the Kansas City-Indianapolis playoff game.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Brett Smith, QB, Wyoming
    The Panthers may want to bring in a young quarterback who can eventually be groomed into Cam Newton's backup.

  29. Jacksonville Jaguars: Connor Shaw, QB, South Carolina
    The Jaguars have said that they plan on drafting multiple quarterbacks this May, so they may opt to take their second signal-caller in the fifth or sixth round, given that they have five picks in those frames.

  30. New England Patriots: Tyler Gaffney, RB, Stanford
    The Patriots lost LeGarrette Blount, who foolishly skipped out on a starting job to take a backup role, so they may look for a new running back because Bill Belichick doesn't trust Stevan Ridley.

  31. Denver Broncos: Avery Williamson, LB, Kentucky
    The Broncos spent their first-round pick on a new starting linebacker, but they could take another one later on for depth.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Carlos Fields, OLB, Winston-Salem
    The Seahawks could use a linebacker, and Carlos Fields has the athleticism that they covet.

  33. New York Jets: Cassius Marsh, DE/OLB, UCLA
    The Jets have a great defensive line, but they need some pass-rushing help on the exterior.

  34. New York Jets: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
    The Jets may want to use one of their billion sixth-round picks on some defensive line depth.

  35. Houston Texans: Jacob Pedersen, TE, Wisconsin
    The Texans had success with a Wisconsin tight end, so they might as well try another one. The position is a big need.

  36. Cincinnati Bengals: Jay Bromley, DT, Syracuse
    The Bengals aren't particularly strong in terms of depth at defensive tackle.

  37. New York Jets: John Brown, WR, Pittsburg State
    Considering the state of the Jets' receiving corps, no one should be surprised if they double dip at the position.

  38. St. Louis Rams: Denicos Allen, OLB, Michigan State
    The Rams need a better third linebacker to go along with James Laurinaitis and Alec Ogletree.

  39. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kirby Van Der Kamp, P, Iowa State
    The Steelers had punting issues this past season, so they may use a third-day choice to shore up their special teams.
