  1. Cleveland Browns: Darius Latham, DT, Indiana
    The Browns could use some more depth on their defensive line, so why not get some with one of their many picks?

  2. Los Angeles Rams: Kevin Byard, S, Middle Tennessee State
    The Rams lost Rodney McLeod this spring, so they'll have to find a replacement safety at some point.

  3. San Francisco 49ers: Jayron Kearse, S, Clemson
    Jayron Kearse's stock has plummeted, but the 49ers might be interested in the sixth round, as he has the size and length Chip Kelly covets.

  4. li> San Diego Chargers: Victor Ochi, DE/OLB, Stony Brook
    Here's more pass-rushing depth for a team that desperately needs to improve its front seven.

    Pick change; previously Joel Heath, DE/DT

  5. Minnesota Vikings: Dadi Nicolas, LB, Virginia Tech
    Chad Greenway has returned, but only for one season. Regardless, the Vikings will have to find someone who can take over as a third starting linebacker.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Eric Striker, OLB, Oklahoma
    It's difficult to determine where exactly Eric Striker will play, but the Jaguars coached him in the Senior Bowl, so perhaps they'd have a plan.

  7. Baltimore Ravens: Jay Lee, WR, Baylor
    The Ravens have shown interest in Jay Lee, as perhaps some insurance for Breshad Perriman, who can't seem to get healthy.

  8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devon Cajuste, WR/TE, Stanford
    Tampa is getting frustrated with Austin Seferian-Jenkins' inability to stay healthy, so competition will be added.

  9. New York Giants: Blake Countess, CB, Auburn
    Here's someone who can help on special teams and provide even more depth for the secondary.

  10. Chicago Bears: Daniel Lasco, RB, California
    The Bears tried to sign C.J. Anderson, but failed. Here's an alternative.

    Pick change; previously Darius Latham, DT

  11. Miami Dolphins: Brandon Doughty, QB, Western Kentucky
    It's safe to say that Miami's confidence in Ryan Tannehill is not on an all-time high level. I expect the Dolphins to draft a young quarterback to groom at some point.

  12. Washington Redskins: Kevon Seymour, CB, USC
    The Redskins improved their secondary by signing Josh Norman, but they could stand to add more depth at cornerback, where they're thin right now.

  13. Philadelphia Eagles: Aaron Burbridge, WR, Michigan State
    The Eagles signed a bunch of pedestrian receivers this offseason. They still need help at the position.

  14. Dallas Cowboys: Glenn Gronkowski, FB, Kansas State
    The Cowboys could use a fullback to bolster their running game, and they got a good look at Glenn Gronkowski during the Senior Bowl.

  15. Los Angeles Rams: Jatavis Brown, LB, Akron
    The Rams needed help at linebacker even prior to releasing James Laurinaitis. Unfortunately, with so few picks, they won't be able to address the position until late.

  16. Detroit Lions: Darius Jackson, RB, Eastern Michigan
    The Lions have plenty of third-day picks, so they can afford to add a running back to their mediocre stable.

  17. Buffalo Bills: Cyrus Jones, CB, Alabama
    Stephon Gilmore will be hitting free agency in 11 months. As we saw with Josh Norman, no player is safe, even when franchised.

  18. Tennessee Titans: Sebastian Tretola, G, Arkansas
    The Titans added an offensive lineman in the first round. They could go after an interior blocker later on for depth purposes.

  19. Oakland Raiders: Jacoby Brissett, QB, N.C. State
    It wouldn't be the worst idea for the Raiders to spend a mid-round pick on a quarterback, given that they don't really have a developmental arm right now.

  20. Houston Texans: Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona
    It doesn't seem like Brian Cushing is going to be on the roster for much longer, so here's someone who could eventually start in his place.

    Pick change; previously Derrick Kindred, S

  21. New England Patriots: Brandon Shell, OT, South Carolina
    Here's another tackle for good measure - just to make sure no crazed Patriot fan stabs me. In all seriousness, New England's tackle depth is an issue that needs to be addressed.

  22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dan Vitale, FB, Northwestern
    The Buccaneers have had an eye on Dan Vitale as perhaps someone who could further improve Doug Martin's already-terrific rushing totals.

  23. San Diego Chargers: Blake Martinez, LB, Stanford
    The Chargers don't have much depth at inside linebacker, so that's something they could take care of in the later rounds.

    Pick change; previously Spencer Drango, G/OT

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Alex Redmond, G, UCLA
    The Bengals have three key offensive linemen who will become free agents after 2016, so adding depth up front is key.

  25. Green Bay Packers: Beniquez Brown, ILB, Mississippi State
    I had the Packers taking Jaylon Smith back in Round 3, but they could use an inside linebacker who could actually play in 2016.

  26. Jacksonville Jaguars: Austin Blythe, C, Iowa
    The Jaguars lost Stefen Wisniewski this offseason, so it wouldn't surprise me to see them draft a center much earlier than this.

  27. Detroit Lions: Marquez North, WR, Tennessee
    It'll take more than one receiver to replace Calvin Johnson. A double dip at the wideout position makes sense.

  28. Kansas City Chiefs: Elijah Shumate, S, Notre Dame
    The Chiefs may select a safety earlier than this; they tried to sign one in free agency, but struck out.

  29. New England Patriots: Brandon Williams, CB/RB, TexasA&M
    The Patriots have some expiring contracts at cornerback next offseason, so they'll probably look for a player at the position in the first three rounds.

  30. Arizona Cardinals: Tyrone Holmes, DE/OLB, Montana
    The Cardinals traded for Chandler Jones, but they could still use more talent on the edge.

  31. Chicago Bears: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State
    Re-signing Zach Miller was crucial, but the Bears need another tight end with Martellus Bennett gone.

  32. San Francisco 49ers: Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT, TCU
    A man with arms as long as his first name is someone Chip Kelly might be interested in, and the 49ers need more line help.

  33. New England Patriots: Jalin Marshall, WR, Ohio State
    This is the second receiver for the Patriots in this draft, but it's the prototype that Bill Belichick covets.

  34. Baltimore Ravens: James Cowser, DE/OLB, Southern Utah
    Here's more pass-rushing depth for the Ravens, who will need more young blood on the edge.

  35. Detroit Lions: Romeo Okwara, DE, Notre Dame
    The Lions don't have the greatest depth at defensive end, so they could address the positon a few rounds earlier than this.

  36. San Francisco 49ers: Ricardo Louis, WR, Auburn
    A third receiver is possible, given that the 49ers don't have any sort of talent at wideout. And yes, that includes Torrey Smith, who took the money and ran to San Francisco.

  37. Dallas Cowboys: Cody Kessler, QB, USC
    Another quarterback? Well, the Cowboys would like a long-term backup, especially after Dak Prescott takes over. Dallas coached Cody Kessler at the Senior Bowl.

  38. San Francisco 49ers: Temarrick Hemingway, TE, South Carolina State
    Here's another position the 49ers haven't addressed yet. They got another prospect whose length has undoubtedly impressed Chip Kelly.

  39. New England Patriots: Ufomba Kamalu, DE/DT, Miami
    Another defensive tackle, and one who fits the Bill Belichick prototype perfectly.

  40. Seattle Seahawks: Alex McCalister, DE/OLB, Florida
    Seattle continues to improve its pass rush. Brandon Mebane signed with the Chargers this offseason, but he needed to be upgraded anyway. The Seahawks need someone better on the edge in addition to an interior rusher.

  41. Dallas Cowboys: Jordan Payton, WR, UCLA
    It's not out of the question that the Cowboys could select two receivers, given the need for play-makers.

  42. Dallas Cowboys: Kevin Peterson, CB, Oklahoma State
    Another player coached in the Senior Bowl, Kevin Peterson would help the Cowboys continue to add depth at corner.

  43. Buffalo Bills: Antonio Morrison, LB, Florida
    The Bills used a first-round pick on a linebacker, but they could double up on the position, given the lack of depth.

  44. Denver Broncos: Bryce Williams, TE, East Carolina
    The Broncos have Jeff Heuerman set to take over at tight end, but they could use someone to challenge him just in case he doesn't live up to expectations.

  45. Pittsburgh Steelers: Vernon Adams, QB, Oregon
    Vernon Adams will be considered in th later rounds, and Pittsburgh needs a reliable backup quarterback.

  46. New England Patriots: Cory Littleton, LB, Washington
    The Patriots haven't selected a linebacker yet, and that needs to happen after the depth issues the team endured last year.
