  1. Minnesota Vikings: Ray Drew, DE/DT, Georgia
    The Vikings could stand to add some depth on their defensive line in the middle rounds.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Zach Hodges, DE/OLB, Harvard
    The Titans managed to sign Brian Orakpo, but they could stand to add another edge rusher, especially considering how fragile Orakpo has been in recent years.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Martrell Spaight, OLB, Arkansas
    The Jaguars could stand to bolster their linebacking corps. They signed Dan Skuta, but he won't be enough.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Cam Thomas, CB, Western Kentucky
    The Raiders had a couple of cornerbacks hit free agency, so they could use some depth at the position.



  5. Washington Redskins: Tre Jackson, G, Florida State
    The Redskins can't go too deep into the draft without addressing their anemic offensive front with multiple picks. They have to make sure Robert Griffin stays healthy for a change.

  6. Chicago Bears: Charles Gaines, CB, Louisville
    The Bears need to keep adding defensive help, which includes an upgrade at the cornerback position. Tim Jennings regressed this past season, and he'll turn 32 at some point during the 2015 campaign.

  7. Denver Broncos: Jamil Douglas, G, Arizona State
    The Broncos lost Orlando Franklin to the rival Chargers this offseason, so they'll need to address the offensive line at some point during the 2015 NFL Draft.

  8. New York Giants: Tony Lippett, WR, Michigan State
    I mentioned earlier that the Giants will take Amari Cooper if he falls to them. That's unlikely to happen, so New York may settle on a receiver in the middle rounds. The Giants need one, given Victor Cruz's questionable status.

  9. Philadelphia Eagles: Tony Washington, DE/OLB, Oregon
    Chip Kelly would probably have a nervous breakdown if he didn't draft an Oregon player at some point. He needs an edge rusher after losing Trent Cole, so why not Tony Washington?

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Mark Glowinski, G, West Virginia
    The Falcons have to add an interior offensive lineman at some point in the wake of losing Justin Blalock this offseason.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Jake Ryan, LB, Michigan
    The Browns can add an inside linebacker to go along with the beautiful new logo they've introduced. They'll need a future starter at the position with Karlos Dansby turning 34 in the middle of the 2015 season.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Marcus Hardison, DE/DT, Arizona State
    The Saints need more help in their front seven. There has been talk about trading Cameron Jordan.



  13. Miami Dolphins: Rakeem Nunez-Roches, DT, Southern Miss
    The Dolphins signed Ndamukong Suh, but lost Randy Starks and Jared Odrick, so they could stand to add a defensive tackle.

  14. Miami Dolphins: Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
    Mike Pouncey will be moving back to center this season, but depth is needed behind him.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Taiwan Jones, LB, Michigan State
    The 49ers are both inept and unfortunate. They said goodbye to Patrick Willis and Chris Borland this offseason, and now they have to find another inside linebacker to go along with the injured NaVorro Bowman.

  16. Houston Texans: Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan State
    The Texans signed Rahim Moore this offseason, but they could still use a mid-round pick on the safety position, just in case D.J. Swearinger continues to struggle.



  17. San Diego Chargers: Anthony Harris, S, Virginia
    Eric Weddle is heading into the final year of his contract, so the Chargers may want to add some insurance in the middle rounds.

  18. New Orleans Saints: Sean Hickey, OT/G, Syracuse
    The Saints currently don't have two legitimate starting guards. This obviously has to be addressed.

  19. Buffalo Bills: John Miller, G, Louisville
    The Bills have a shaky guard situation with the pedestrian Chris Williams and troubled Richie Incognito slated to start on the interior.

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Troy Hill, CB, Oregon
    Another Oregon player so Chip Kelly can be happy. The Eagles could easily spend multiple picks on cornerbacks.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Bryce Hager, ILB, Baylor
    With Vontaze Burfict coming off an injury and other linebackers heading into contract seasons, the Bengals could address the position early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Blake Bell, TE

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State
    The Ravens could stand to add another defensive lineman. They lost Haloti Ngata and won't have Chris Canty that much longer.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Xavier Williams, NT, Northern Iowa
    The Cardinals have to find a replacement for Dan Williams, who signed with the Raiders this offseason.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jesse James, TE, Penn State
    The Steelers could be in the market for a successor at tight end. Heath Miller turns 33 in October and has just two more years left on his contract.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Vince Mayle, WR, Washington State
    The Panthers could obviously address the receiver position much earlier than this, given the need. However, their current front office won't reach just to address a hole.

    Pick change; previously Jeff Heuerman, TE

  26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin White, CB, TCU
    The Buccaneers may target a cornerback earlier than this. They could use some competition for Johnthan Banks.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Laurence Gibson, OT, Virginia Tech
    A mid-round offensive tackle is definitely a possibility for Dallas in the wake of losing Jermey Parnell to the Jaguars in free agency.

  28. Denver Broncos: Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama
    The Broncos are looking to bring in a new fullback this offseason. They have two fifth-round selections, so perhaps they'll use one on a lead blocker.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: David Cobb, RB, Minnesota
    The Colts signed Frank Gore - check out my grade in the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades page - but he's just a short-term solution. A long-term option is needed.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Geneo Grissom, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    Julius Peppers was a great addition to the Packers, but a long-term backup is needed behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry is needed once Peppers moves on.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Justin Cox, CB, Mississippi State
    Byron Maxwell signed with the Eagles, while Tharold Simon was atrocious in the Super Bowl when he had to replace Jeremy Lane.

  32. Detroit Lions: Angelo Blackson, DT, Auburn
    Here's another pass-rusher for the Buccaneers, who have to deal with Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton twice per year.

    Pick change; previously Randall Evans, CB

  33. Carolina Panthers: Za'Darius Smith, DE/OLB, Kentucky
    With Greg Hardy gone, the Panthers might want to target a defensive end in the middle rounds for depth purposes.

  34. Seattle Seahawks: Kenny Bell, WR, Nebraska
    The Seahawks traded for Jimmy Graham, but they could still stand to add another play-maker, as their receiving corps doesn't have much talent.

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Josh Harper, WR, Fresno State
    The Ravens could address the receiver position much earlier than this. They need help there with Torrey Smith gone.

    Pick change; previously Cody Riggs, CB

  36. Kansas City Chiefs: Cody Riggs, CB, Notre Dame
    The cornerback position isn't as big of a need for Kansas City as some make it out to be, but better depth is definitely must at the position.

  37. Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Bridge, QB, South Alabama
    The Chiefs could stand to add a young quarterback to groom behind Alex Smith.

  38. Carolina Panthers: Blake Bell, TE, Oklahoma
    The Panthers could use some depth at tight end behind Greg Olsen. They tried Ed Dickson last year, but he struggled.

  39. Houston Texans: Alani Fua, DE/OLB, BYU
    The Texans are optimistic about Jadeveon Clowney's chances of returning to the field this season - I still support my NFL Game of Thrones comparison - but they may want to add an edge rusher as insurance.

  40. Baltimore Ravens: Malcolm Brown, RB, Texas
    The Ravens managed to re-sign Justin Forsett, but with Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce gone, some depth behind Forsett is needed.
