San Francisco 49ers: Richie Brown, ILB, Mississippi State
The 49ers could take a linebacker much earlier than this, as they have a big need at the position.

Washington Redskins: Noah Brown, WR, Ohio State
This is a bit late for Noah Brown, but the Redskins won't complain, as they could stand to add a second receiver in this draft.
Chicago Bears: Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin
The Bears could add some running back depth in the final couple of rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Knight, QB, Texas A&M
The Jaguars need to draft a young quarterback at some point, given that Blake Bortles looks like a sunk cost.
Miami Dolphins: Jonathan Calvin, DE, Mississippi State
Given the uncertainty the Dolphins have at defensive end beyond 2017, it wouldn't surprise me if they grabbed multiple edge rushers.
New York Jets: Grover Stewart, NT, Albany State
The Jets haven't properly replaced Snacks Harrison, so they figure to take a nose tackle at some point.
Los Angeles Chargers: Jake Replogle, DT, Purdue
The Chargers need more personnel for their new 4-3 defense, so they could grab a defensive tackle earlier than this.
Seattle Seahawks: Shalom Luani, S, Washington State
Say hello to a new seventh-round prospect for the Seahawks, as Shalom Luani is the sort of home-run pick Seattle likes.
Cincinnati Bengals: Cameron Tom, C, Southern Miss
Russell Bodine is an impending free agent after this season, so the Bengals could be looking for some insurance at center.
Dallas Cowboys: Jahad Thomas, RB, Temple
Alfred Morris was a disappointment last year, while Darren McFadden is always a question mark.
New Orleans Saints: Michael Rector, WR, Stanford
The Saints typically spend a late-round pick on a tall receiver, so this makes sense.
Philadelphia Eagles: Brad Seaton, OT, Villanova
The Eagles may take a chance on local product Brad Seaton, who could provide insurance if Lane Johnson is suspended again.
Arizona Cardinals: Ryan Glasgow, DT, Michigan
The Cardinals will need to find a replacement for the departed Calais Campbell at some point.
Minnesota Vikings: Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas
The Vikings tried to sign a tight end in free agency, so they could go after a player at the position at some point in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Carolina Panthers: Channing Stribling, CB, Michigan
The Panthers haven't addressed cornerback yet, which is probably a mistake. They'll need to do so at some point.
Los Angeles Rams: DeAngelo Brown, NT, Louisville
The Rams need to continue adding personnel for their new 3-4 defense.
Washington Redskins: De'Veon Smith, RB, Michigan
The Redskins could address running back earlier than this, as Robert Kelley isn't the greatest starter.
Tennessee Titans: Jeremy Cutrer, CB, Middle Tennessee
Local product Jeremy Cutrer makes sense for the Titans, who need to add multiple cornerbacks in this draft.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Marcus Sayles, CB, West Georgia
Marcus Sayles has the athleticism the Buccaneers like, and a second corner is needed for Tampa.
Denver Broncos: Jadar Johnson, S, Clemson
T.J. Ward is an impending free agent, so this pick could provide some insurance for them.
New England Patriots: Chase Roullier, C, Wyoming
The Patriots could use some competition at center, so it shouldn't surprise anyone if they added a player at the position earlier than this.
Miami Dolphins: Taylor McNamara, TE, USC
A try-hard, high-character player for the Dolphins at a position of need.
New York Giants: Ryan Switzer, WR, North Carolina
Victor Cruz is gone, so the Giants could select a receiver a few rounds earlier than this.
Oakland Raiders: Ben Braden, G, Michigan
Some interior offensive line depth wouldn't hurt with Gabe Jackson hitting free agency next year.
Houston Texans: Mike Tyson, S, Cincinnati
Here's more much-needed depth for Houston's secondary.
Oakland Raiders: Fish Smithson, S, Kansas
Here's some more secondary help for the Raiders, as Fish Smithson is a potential steal.
Kansas City Chiefs: Jerome Lane, WR, Akron
The Chiefs could address the receiver position much earlier than this, as Jeremy Maclin may not be on the roster much longer.
Dallas Cowboys: Seth Russell, QB, Baylor
The Cowboys are in the market for a backup quarterback, so they could take one early on Day 3.
Green Bay Packers: Boom Williams, RB, Kentucky
The Packers could add a second running back, just in case.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Treyvon Hester, DT, Toledo
Here's more defensive line depth for the Steelers, who have shown interest in Treyvon Hester.
Atlanta Falcons: Robert Davis, WR, Georgia State
Robert Davis is the sort of talented athlete the Falcons covet, and Taylor Gabriel will be a free agent next season.
Detroit Lions: Ifeadi Odenigbo, DE, Northwestern
The Lions bookend their draft class with defensive ends, as they attempt to fix their pedestrian pass rush.
Cincinnati Bengals: Ishmael Zamaora, WR, Baylor
I mentioned earlier that the Bengals want to double up on receivers. Tripling up works as well.
Denver Broncos: Garrett Sickels, DE, Penn State
I have no idea why Garrett Sickels declared early, but at least he gets drafted. The Broncos need pass-rushing depth.
Denver Broncos: Hardy Nickerson Jr., LB, Illinois
The Broncos start and end their draft with a linebacker, as Mr. Irrelevant is the son of former Jaguar Hardy Nickerson Sr.
