  1. Tennessee Titans: Tajae Sharpe, WR, UMass
    It wouldn't surprise me if the Titans doubled up on receivers, as they need to find more weapons for Marcus Mariota.

  2. Cleveland Browns: Ryan Smith, CB, N.C. Central
    The Browns have a new front office, so there's no obligation to keep Justin Gilbert on the roster. They need a cornerback, as Tramon Williams can't really start much longer.

  3. San Francisco 49ers: De'Vondre Campbell, LB, Minnesota
    The 49ers still haven't recovered from losing Patrick Willis and Chris Borland, so an inside linebacker is an option for them in any round.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Kentrell Brothers, ILB, Missouri
    As mentioned in the first round, Darron Lee is a possibility for the Raiders at No. 14. Linebacker is an area of need, so it'll have to be addressed at some point.

  5. Denver Broncos: Fahn Cooper, OT, Ole Miss
    The Broncos signed Russell Okung, but he's a risky proposition because of his extensive injury history. Here's some insurance.

    Pick change; previously Deon Bush, S

  6. San Francisco 49ers: Matt Judon, DE/OLB, Grand Valley State
    San Francisco could be looking for pass-rushing depth, as Corey Lemonier hasn't developed into the player the 49ers were hoping he'd become.

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Thomas, WR, Southern Miss
    I think the Jaguars could add a receiver in the middle rounds, and Michael Thomas certainly fits the range at this spot.

  8. Miami Dolphins: Thomas Duarte, TE, UCLA
    The Dolphins haven't gotten much out of Jordan Cameron, so they'll probably search for a tight end at some point in the 2016 NFL Draft.

  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Stephen Weatherly, DE, Vanderbilt
    Leonard Floyd would be used as an Anthony Barr-type player, but here's a more-traditional edge rusher to help the Buccaneers get to the quarterback.

  10. New York Giants: Daniel Braverman, WR, Western Michigan
    The Giants are searching for any sort of impactful wideout, as they need a No. 2 receiver to start across from Odell Beckham Jr.

    Pick change; previously DeAndre Houston-Carson, S

  11. Chicago Bears: Zack Sanchez, CB, Oklahoma
    Drafting two cornerbacks in this class wouldn't be the worst idea, given how dire of a need that is for Chicago.

  12. Detroit Lions: Tyvis Powell, S, Ohio State
    The Lions could use help in the secondary, and Tyvis Powell seems like a great fit for their defense.

    Pick change; previously Chris Moore, WR

  13. New Orleans Saints: Ronald Blair, DE, Appalachian State
    The Saints could add an edge rusher much earlier than this. It's something they desperately need to address.

    Pick change; previously Tyvis Powell, S

  14. Philadelphia Eagles: Maliek Collins, DT, Nebraska
    TThe Eagles are moving back to the 4-3 - strange that they even switched to the 3-4 in the first place - which means they'll need more defensive linemen for depth purposes.

  15. Oakland Raiders: Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State
    Derek Carr has two talented receivers at his disposal. Adding a third could make the offense even more lethal.

  16. Indianapolis Colts: Tyler Matakevich, ILB, Temple
    The Colts lost Jerrell Freeman in free agency, so they're really hurting right now at inside linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Max Tuerk, C

  17. Buffalo Bills: Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford
    The Bills have scouted quarterbacks pretty hard, so it would be a surprise if they don't take one in the 2016 NFL Draft.

  18. Denver Broncos: Peyton Barber, RB, Auburn
    The Broncos are searching for another running back, and Peyton Barber is someone they've been linked to.

    Pick change; previously Fahn Cooper, OT

  19. Washington Redskins: Evan Boehm, C, Missouri
    One of the reasons Washington's running game was so erratic was because the team has gotten poor play out of its center. This is the primary position the Redskins need to upgrade up front.

  20. Houston Texans: D.J. Reader, NT, Clemson
    The Texans could be in the market for an eventual successor for Vince Wilfork in the middle rounds.

  21. Minnesota Vikings: Tyler Johnstone, OT, Oregon
    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that one of Matt Kalil or Phil Loadholt will be cut this offseason. T.J. Clemmings will slide in as a starter, meaning depth will be needed.

  22. Cincinnati Bengals: DeAndre Houston-Carson, S, William & Mary
    The Bengals lost Reggie Nelson this offseason, so they'll need to add another safety to the mix.

    Pick change; previously Daniel Braverman, WR

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Daryl Worley, CB, West Virginia
    The Chiefs added a talented cornerback in Marcus Peters last year, but they'll need another player at the position with Sean Smith gone.

  24. Green Bay Packers: Deiondre' Hall, CB, Northern Iowa
    Most teams like spending a selection or two on secondary help, and the Packers may want to address depth issues in the wake of Casey Hayward's departure.

  25. Philadelphia Eagles: Spencer Drango, G/OT, Baylor
    The Eagles are desperate for offensive line help, but they may have to wait a while, due to a lack of picks.

    Pick change; previously Ronald Blair, DE

  26. Kansas City Chiefs: Anthony Zettel, DE/DT, Penn State
    Mike DeVito announced his retirement recently, so the Chiefs will have to find a defensive lineman at some point.

  27. Houston Texans: Geronimo Allison, WR, Illinois
    The receiver position is a big need for the Texans, so it wouldn't surprise me if they double dipped.

  28. Arizona Cardinals: Jeff Driskel, QB, Louisiana Tech
    Jeff Driskel seems like he'd fit well into Bruce Arians' offense. Arians will have to look for a young quarterback to eventually supplant Carson Palmer, who had an epic meltdown in the playoffs.

  29. Carolina Panthers: Willie Beavers, OT, Western Michigan
    The Panthers could address their dire tackle situation much earlier than this, given how bad Michael Oher and Mike Remmers were in the Super Bowl.

  30. Detroit Lions: Chris Moore, WR, Cincinnati
    Calvin Johnson has announced his retirement, so the Lions will have to find a tertiary receiver to go along with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.

  31. Arizona Cardinals: Nicholas Kwiatkoski, LB, West Virginia
    The Cardinals need help at inside linebacker, so expect them to address the position in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Murphy, OT

  32. Seattle Seahawks: DeAndre Elliott, CB, Colorado State
    Seattle's latest mid-round tall cornerback, DeAndre Elliott could help an ailing secondary that couldn't stop Cam Newton in the divisional round.

  33. Cleveland Browns: Kyle Murphy, OT, Stanford
    The Browns are hurting at right tackle, and they could address the position much earlier than this.

    Pick change; previously Nicholas Kwiatkoski, LB

  34. Cleveland Browns: Moritz Wilhelm Boehringer, WR, Germany
    The Browns are definitely a candidate to double up on receivers, as Josh Gordon isn't the most reliable football player.

  35. San Francisco 49ers: De'Runnya Wilson, WR, Mississippi State
    A double dip at wideout is possible, as the 49ers don't have anything at receiver.

  36. San Diego Chargers: John Theus, OT, Georgia
    Here's more offensive line depth for the Chargers.
