  1. Miami Dolphins: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State
    The Dolphins have a great defense, but they happen to have a hole across from Brent Grimes. An upgrade is needed over Corland Finnegan, and a new No. 1 corner will have to be acquired in the near future, given that Grimes will be 32 in July.

    Pick change; previously La'El Collins, OT/G

  2. San Diego Chargers: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    Melvin Gordon, who just set the NCAA single-game record for rushing yardage, is now the No. 1 running back in the wake of Todd Gurley's ACL tear. Gordon, who is viewed as the next Jamaal Charles, would help Philip Rivers in the backfield. Ryan Mathews is an impending free agent, while Branden Oliver has cooled off following a hot start.

    Pick change; previously Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB

  3. San Francisco 49ers: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    If the inconsistent Michael Crabtree leaves via free agency, the 49ers will definitely have to do something about the receiver position. They'd probably want an upgrade over Crabtree anyway, as he's been a big disappointment this season. Anquan Boldin, meanwhile, won't be able to do this much longer.

    Pick change; previously Trae Waynes, CB

  4. Seattle Seahawks: Alvin Dupree, DE, Kentucky
    There are a number of reasons why the Seahakws have underachieved this year. One is a lacking pass rush. It'll only get worse in the offseason when Cliff Avril hits free agency. Alvin Dupree, who has been a monster this season, fits what Seattle looks for from an athleticism standpoint.

  5. Atlanta Falcons: Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson
    The Falcons can't be too upset with obtaining Jake Matthews at No. 6 overall this past May - though he has recently struggled with an injury - but they were one pick away from landing Khalil Mack, who has been great for the Raiders thus far. Here's their new edge rusher.

    Pick change; previously Todd Gurley, RB

  6. 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

  7. Cincinnati Bengals: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State
    The Bengals have been soft in the middle of their defense this year. Geno Atkins hasn't looked right coming off his injury, but the main issue has been Domata Peko, who has just been awful. An upgrade is needed over him.

  8. Dallas Cowboys: Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington
    The Cowboys could be interested in some help at linebacker. They just lost Justin Durant for the season, and he might be gone for good soon because he's an impending free agent. Sean Lee will also be returning, but Dallas can't count on him staying healthy.

    Pick change; previously Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB

  9. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    Cortez Allen was so bad against the Colts that he was actually trending on Twitter. The Steelers are in desperate need of help at the cornerback position, and they're definitely getting one of the better players available.

  10. Kansas City Chiefs: Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
    The Chiefs had trouble dealing with Buffalo's pass rush a couple of weeks ago. They have some holes on the offensive line, so Andy Reid is bound to spend some selections to fill those.

    Pick change; previously Sammie Coates, WR

  11. Detroit Lions: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
    I was wondering where to put Todd Gurley, and I think this is a good spot. The Lions have taken the top player on their draft board before, and they could use some help at running back with Reggie Bush being phased out. Gurley provides major value here, as he was a top-10 prospect prior to his ACL tear.

    Pick change; previously Trae Waynes, CB

  12. Philadelphia Eagles: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    Chip Kelly likes tall defenders, and he's also shown an affinity for Pac-12 prospects, so this selection makes sense for multiple reasons. Another is that the Eagles desperately need help in their secondary in the wake of that dreadful showing at Lambeau.

    Pick change; previously Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB

  13. 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.

  14. Arizona Cardinals: Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB, Michigan State
    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 Markus Golden, DE/OLB

  15. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Perryman, LB, Miami
    Charlie Campbell reported about two months 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 Benardrick McKinney, LB

  16. New England Patriots: Shawn Oakman, DE/DT, Baylor
    Some are saying that Shawn Oakman is a top-10 prospect, but they are making the mistake of not reading Charlie Campbell's NFL Draft Rumor Mill, where Charlie reported that one NFL general manager considers Oakman to be a third-day prospect. The end of Round 1 appears to be Oakman's ceiling, but he fits what Bill Belichick typically looks for in defensive line prospects.

    Pick change; previously Jaelen Strong, WR
