  1. San Diego Chargers: Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
    I'd say San Diego's No. 1 priority is protecting Philip Rivers, but there have been rumors that the front office could trade Rivers if it can somehow land Marcus Mariota. That could happen, and if it does, the Chargers' top priority would be finding adequate blocking for Mariota.

    Offensive tackle is definitely in play at No. 17, as the Ereck Flowers selection would mean that one of King Dunlap or D.J. Fluker would move inside (probably the former).

  2. Kansas City Chiefs: La'el Collins, OT/G, LSU
    The Chiefs had pass protection issues this past season - only six teams surrendered more sacks - and I doubt Andy Reid will pass on an offensive lineman in the first couple of rounds. Reid loves drafting linemen, and he's getting a bit of steal at No. 18 with La'el Collins, who could go as high as the 12th spot to the Browns.

  3. Cleveland Browns: D.J. Humphries, OT/G, Florida
    The Browns have expressed a desire to fortify their offensive and defensive lines, so they can take care of the former with this selection. The front office wanted to upgrade Mitchell Schwartz last year, with plans to move him inside. Here's a potential new starter in D.J. Humphries, whose stock has soared recently.

    Pick change; previously Ereck Flowers, OT

  4. Philadelphia Eagles: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
    There's a chance the Eagles will move up for Marcus Mariota, especially if he slips past the second-overall pick. Moving from No. 20 to No. 2 would cost too much under normal circumstances, but perhaps Tennessee really covets Sam Bradford. I still say the Eagles probably stay put, but I won't dismiss the possibility of a trade, despite what Chip Kelly said about mortgaging the future.

    Jalen Collins, who looked great at the NFL Combine, is the type of impressive, tall athlete Kelly likes having in his defense. The Eagles are obviously looking for a cornerback, as the top two players in the NFL Mock Draft Consensus Selections are corners.

  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State
    Domata Peko did not play well this past season, so the Bengals may want to consider finding some help for the interior of their defensive line. Eddie Goldman, one of the better players left on the board, seems like the perfect replacement.

    Pick change; previously D.J. Humphries, OT

  6. Pittsburgh Steelers: Landon Collins, S, Alabama
    It always seems like a talented prospect falls to the Steelers every April, and that could be Landon Collins this year. Some are down on Collins, so he could slip. Pittsburgh will be happy if he does; Michael Mitchell proved to be a disappointment last year, while Troy Polamalu is being pushed into retirement.

  7. Detroit Lions: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    Reggie Bush was released earlier in the offseason, so the Lions will need to find someone to split the load with Joique Bell. Detroit's front office typically likes picking the top player available, and Melvin Gordon could fit that description, as he has drawn comparisons to Jamaal Charles.

    Pick change; previously Eddie Goldman, DT

  8. Arizona Cardinals: Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA
    The Cardinals have had major issues covering tight ends the past two years. The main problem in this regard this past season was the inside linebacker position. Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington were both missed. Sean Weatherspoon signed with Arizona, but he can't be counted on to stay healthy. Eric Kendricks is a solid choice at this juncture; he's the top consensus inside linebacker, and the only player at his position basically guaranteed a spot in the first round.

  9. Carolina Panthers: Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford
    The Panthers couldn't block for Cam Newton whatsoever early in the season. The offensive line was able to gel late in the year, but there are still some glaring holes there, particularly at both tackle positions.

  10. Baltimore Ravens: Breshad Perriman, WR, Central Florida
    The Ravens will be looking for an offensive weapon with one of their first couple of draft picks. The receiver position needs help; Torrey Smith is an impending free agent, while Steve Smith, who turns 36 in May, won't be around for very long.

  11. Dallas Cowboys: P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State
    The Cowboys desperately need help at cornerback. Morris Claiborne has been a huge disappointment, while Brandon Carr is extremely overpaid. Dallas could target a potential upgrade at the end of the first round.

    Pick change; previously Eli Harold, DE/OLB

  12. Denver Broncos: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE/OLB, UCLA
    The Broncos are switching to a 3-4 defense under Wade Phillips, so one of the positions they'll need to address is outside linebacker. They have Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware slated to start there, but they don't have much depth behind them. Besides, counting on a 33-year-old Ware to be productive for the entire season would be a mistake.

  13. Indianapolis Colts: Cameron Erving, OT/G/C, Florida State
    The Colts made some nice additions to their roster this offseason, but one area that they've mostly neglected is the offensive line. Andrew Luck needs better protection at multiple positions, so picking a talented lineman who can play different spots would be a solid move.

  14. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Phillips, NT, Oklahoma
    Both B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion are free agents. At least one won't be back, which means the Packers will need another big body up front. With no inside linebackers worth taking here, Green Bay could go with one of the top players on its board.

  15. New Orleans Saints: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
    Tony Pauline reported that there is some interest for Maxx Williams at the end of the first round. The Saints could be a team that could target him in the wake of the shocking Jimmy Graham trade. Go here to see all my NFL Free Agent and Trade Grades.

    Pick change; previously Markus Golden, DE/OLB

  16. New England Patriots: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State
    The Patriots were unstoppable on offense for the most part during their Super Bowl run, but they still need to find some help for Tom Brady in the receiving corps. Relying on the likes of Brandon LaFell doesn't sound like a good proposition for the long term, and they missed out on signing Stevie Johnson.
