Houston Texans: Isaiah Crowell, RB, Alabama State
Houston's top two running backs are injury-prone, so this is for insurance and depth.
Washington Redskins: Quandon Christian, ILB, Clemson
Tony Pauline reported that Quandon Christian is a target for the Redskins in the seventh round.
Cleveland Browns: Stephen Morris, QB, Miami
Stephen Morris should be able to compete with Vince Young for the third quarterback spot.
Oakland Raiders: Keith Wenning, QB, Ball State
How can the Raiders wait until the seventh round for a quarterback? Well, a rookie signal-caller isn't going to help them win right away, and the front office needs that to happen.
Pick change; previously Khyri Thornton, DT
Atlanta Falcons: Michael Sam, DE, Missouri
The Falcons are familiar with Michael Sam from the Senior Bowl, so perhaps they'd be willing to take a shot on him late in the draft.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Garrett Scott, OT, Marshall
I'm not sure why some NFL analysts believe the Buccaneers need a tackle. Depth could be added, but that's it.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Ken Bishop, DT, Northern Illinois
The Jaguars could add some more depth on the interior of their defensive line with a player they've shown interest in.
Minnesota Vikings: Chris Watt, G, Notre Dame
Rick Spielman is contractually obligated to draft a player out of Notre Dame. Some more offensive line help wouldn't hurt.
Buffalo Bills: Terrance Cobb, RB, Cumberland
The Bills may spend another late-rounder on a running back. They've shown interest in Terrance Cobb.
Carolina Panthers: Philly Brown, WR, Ohio State
The state of Carolina's receiving corps is so dismal that the team could select three wideouts.
St. Louis Rams: Wesley Johnson, C, Vanderbilt
The Rams could obtain someone to compete to be the successor at center.
Detroit Lions: Nate Freese, K, Boston College
I have no idea why the Lions didn't keep Kickalicious, but they'll need a new kicker.
Tennessee Titans: Justin Britt, OT, Missouri
The Titans already added a potential left tackle of the future. Here's some depth at the position.
Dallas Cowboys: Josh Huff, WR, Oregon
The Cowboys added a third receiver earlier. Here's another wideout for depth purposes.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Rob Blanchflower, TE, UMass
Heath Miller won't be around much longer, so the Steelers may want to find his successor.
Dallas Cowboys: Ryan Groy, G, Wisconsin
Jerry Jones is familiar with Wisconsin linemen, so he may want to add one for depth purposes.
Indianapolis Colts: Josh Walker, G, Middle Tennessee State
The Colts have to look into spending another selection on an interior lineman in order to protect Andrew Luck.
New York Jets: Dexter McDougle, CB, Maryland
The Jets' dire need at cornerback may prompt them to overcompensate in this draft.
Miami Dolphins: Khyri Thornton, DT, Southern Miss
Some defensive tackle depth for the Dolphins, who lost Paul Soliai this offseason.
Pick change; previously Keith Wenning, QB
Oakland Raiders: Ben Gardner, DE, Stanford
The Raiders added some defensive ends this offseason, but they're all on the down side of their careers. More youth is needed at the position.
Green Bay Packers: Brandon Dixon, CB, Northwest Missouri State
The Packers haven't addressed their cornerback depth yet, so that's what they're doing here.
Philadelphia Eagles: Ron Powell, DE/OLB, Florida
Here's another pass-rusher to help get after Eli Manning, Tony Romo and Robert Griffin.
Dallas Cowboys: James White, RB, Wisconsin
The Cowboys may draft a running back late to compensate for the loss of Phillip Tanner.
Cincinnati Bengals: Ty Zimmerman, S, Kansas State
The Bengals have shown interest in Ty Zimmerman, who could help with safety depth.
San Diego Chargers: Brian Clarke, G, Bloomsburg
The Chargers could stand to add some offensive line depth, but they haven't done that yet.
St. Louis Rams: Andre Hal, CB, Vanderbilt
The Rams haven't added any cornerback depth yet, though they'll probably do that earlier.
San Francisco 49ers: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
Poor Aaron Colvin would go several rounds earlier than this if it wasn't for a torn ACL. The 49ers have a history of grabbing injured players who fall in the draft.
San Francisco 49ers: Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh
The 49ers moved up for Odell Beckham in this mock, but they may take another receiver late.
New England Patriots: Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon
Adding another troubled tight end may seem strange, but Colt Lyerla fits what Bill Belichick looks for, athletically.
San Francisco 49ers: Spencer Long, G, Nebraska
The 49ers can use their 50th seventh-round pick to add some offensive line depth, which they haven't done yet.
Denver Broncos: William Poehls, G, Montana
The Broncos are moving Orlando Franklin inside, but that may not work. They may want to have depth.
Oakland Raiders: Kevin Pamphile, OT, Purdue
Here's another late-round pick for needed offensive line depth. Menelik Watson will likely start at right tackle, but he's obviously no sure thing.
Dallas Cowboys: Demetri Goodson, CB, Baylor
It's hard to believe, but the Cowboys haven't added cornerback depth yet. That's a must.
St. Louis Rams: Kevin Graf, OT, USC
Jeff Fisher loves taking USC products, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind another offensive lineman.
St. Louis Rams: James Wilder, RB, Florida State
Some running back depth wouldn't hurt, and the Rams won't mind James Wilder's off-the-field issues.
Dallas Cowboys: Davon Coleman, DT, Arizona State
Yes, a third defensive tackle - because that's how bleak things are at the position for Dallas.
Cincinnati Bengals: Aaron Lynch, DE, South Florida
Here's some more pass-rushing help for the Bengals, who won't pay much attention to Aaron Lynch's character issues.
Atlanta Falcons: Jonathan Brown, OLB, Illinois
The Falcons haven't added linebacker depth yet, so this selection makes sense.
Dallas Cowboys: Garrett Gilbert, QB, SMU
The Cowboys need a backup quarterback, and they've shown lots of interest in Garrett Gilbert.
Pick change; previously Xavius Boyd, OLB
Atlanta Falcons: Kadeem Edwards, G, Tennessee State
The interior offensive line is another area the Falcons have ignored up until now.
Houston Texans: Chaz Sutton, DE/OLB, South Carolina
Another prospect the Texans are familiar with. They might as well bookend the draft with a pair of South Carolina edge rushers.
Come on Walt. You have the Vikings drafting for need. They did a fairly good job if FA filling needs. I could see the RB in the second because thats value. The only needs they have are at dt and safety. I hope they pick highest rated player.
