  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Markus Golden, DE/OLB, Missouri
    The Bengals never properly replaced Michael Johnson, so perhaps they'll do that next offseason. They're doing so here with one of the top players available.

  2. Detroit Lions: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
    It's amazing how much better Darius Slay has been this season after struggling last year. However, the Lions still need a long-term starter across from him, as Rashean Mathis will be a 35-year-old free agent this upcoming offseason.

    Pick change; previously Trae Waynes, CB

  3. Miami Dolphins: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
    Cortland Finnegan hasn't been terrible this year, but the fact that the Dolphins are using him is a sign that they need corner help. Besides, Miami is taking one of the top players on the board at this juncture.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Peters, CB

  4. Philadelphia Eagles: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    Jeremy Maclin will be a free agent in March. Riley Cooper has struggled since the middle of last season. Jordan Matthews has flashed potential, but he's also been inconsistent. The Eagles could be interested in a big receiver next April if they don't extend Maclin.

  5. Kansas City Chiefs: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    The Chiefs need help at wideout. Dwayne Bowe is just a No. 2 receiver masquerading as a top target, while none of the other receivers are very skilled. The Chiefs might be regretting passing on Kelvin Benjamin.

    Pick change; previously Cedric Ogbuhei, OT

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The Cardinals need a long-term pass-rusher across from Sam Acho; John Abraham will be a 37-year-old free agent next spring. I was surprised they didn't draft an edge rusher this past May.

    Pick change; previously Vic Beasley, DE/OLB

  7. New Orleans Saints: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    The Saints have had major defensive issues this season. Some of their players can't tackle whatsoever. Meanwhile, the corners, particularly Patrick Robinson and Corey White, haven't been able to cover anyone.

    Pick change; previously Vic Beasley, DE/OLB

  8. Baltimore Ravens: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    I had the Ravens making this selection even before Ray Rice's contract was terminated. Rice was in quick decline, while Bernard Pierce hasn't shown the ability to stay healthy. Melvin Gordon is viewed as the next Jamaal Charles, so he would be too good to pass up.

    Pick change; previously T.J. Yeldon, RB

  9. Dallas Cowboys: Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB, Michigan State
    The Cowboys couldn't get any pressure on Colt McCoy in an embarrassing Monday night defeat. That has to change. Several upgrades can be obtained on the defensive line.

    Pick change; previously Mario Edwards, DT

  10. San Francisco 49ers: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State
    San Francisco's greatest weakness is its secondary. Help at cornerback is especially needed. Allowing Drew Stanton to be nearly flawless in a half of action is unacceptable, and the team stood no chance against Peyton Manning a couple of Sunday nights ago.

    Pick change; previously Ronald Darby, CB

  11. San Diego Chargers: Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson
    The Chargers have Jeremiah Attaochu waiting in the wings, but with Dwight Freeney heading for retirement soon, they may want to add another pass-rusher.

    Pick change; previously Jaelen Strong, WR

  12. Indianapolis Colts: Arik Armstead, DE/DT, Oregon
    Cory Redding has been a stud this year, but he will be a 34-year-old free agent in March. A long-term pass-rusher on the defensive line is needed.

    Pick change; previously Shawn Oakman, DE/DT

  13. Seattle Seahawks: Devin Funchess, TE, Michigan
    Neither Zach Miller nor Luke Willson has lived up to expectations. The former will be an impending free agent in March 2016, so the Seahawks, who reportedly tried to trade Percy Harvin for Jordan Cameron, could take a look at a tight end early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Devin Funchess moved to wide receiver this year, but he'll almost certainly switch back to tight end in the pros. The Seahawks may love his athleticism.

  14. New England Patriots: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    The Patriots have been rumored as a team that could trade for Doug Martin. If that doesn't go down, perhaps they'll focus on a running back in April. They haven't been able to count on Stevan Ridley, and Bill Belichick has shown before that he's willing to draft running backs in the first round.

    Pick change; previously Melvin Gordon, RB

  15. Green Bay Packers: Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington
    Charlie Campbell reported about a month ago that the Packers were desperate to land Ryan Shazier in the 2014 NFL Draft to help contain Colin Kaepernick. Here's a possible solution.

    Pick change; previously Eric Kendricks, ILB

  16. Denver Broncos: Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA
    The Broncos have had issues at middle linebacker for quite some time, so perhaps they'll finally put those to rest by spending a first-round pick on an upgrade.

    Pick change; previously Denzel Perryman, ILB
