  1. Cleveland Browns: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
    The Browns could easily spend the first-overall pick on Saquon Barkley. If they don't, they'll need someone else to upgrade the disappointing Isaiah Crowell.

  2. New York Giants: Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
    Shane Vereen is an impending free agent, so the Giants will need a new running back. Orleans Darkwa, Wayne Gallman, Paul Perkins... all of these players are pedestrian. New York needs an upgrade here, and it would get that with Bryce Love, who has shown some dynamic play-making ability and toughness as Christian McCaffrey's replacement.

  3. New England Patriots: Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA
    Nate Solder is an impending free agent. It'll be interesting to see what the Patriots do with him. He's obviously very talented, but he's had severe injury problems over the past several seasons, so New England may decide that it can't count on him.

    Kolton Miller had a rough start to his 2017 campaign, but ever since moving from right tackle to the blind side, he's been terrific. He could sneak into the opening round.

  4. Indianapolis Colts: Josh Allen, LB, Kentucky
    The Colts have a very weak defense, and one of the worst areas in the stop unit is at linebacker. Indianapolis has needed help there for a while.

    Pick change; previously Nick Chubb, RB

  5. Cleveland Browns: Maurice Hurst, DE/DT, Michigan
    The Browns have the foundation for a great defensive front, but they need another talent next to Danny Shelton to help rush the passer.

    Pick change; previously DeShon Elliott, S

  6. Chicago Bears: Harold Landry, DE/OLB, Boston College
    How much longer can the Bears rely on Pernell McPhee? He always seems to be injured, so getting a good insurance policy seems like a great idea.

    Pick change; previously Iman Marshall, CB

  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
    The Buccaneers took a chance on Doug Martin this season, and it backfired. Martin has been lethargic, and he was finally benched for fumbling. Tampa Bay will be looking for a running back early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  8. Denver Broncos: Connor Williams, OT, Texas
    The Broncos found a new quarterback in the opening round. Now, they'll need to protect him and give him at least one talented weapon to work with.

    Connor Williams has taken a dive in recent mock draft updates as a result of Charlie's report in the NFL Hot Press that teams have a mid-round grade on the Texas tackle.

  9. New York Jets: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
    I've had Clayton Thorson slotted here for the past few updates, but I had to make a late adjustment because of a report from Charlie Campbell that Clayton Thorson is likely returning to Northwestern.

    Why not take another player for the backfield instead? It's not like the Jets don't need a new starting running back.

    Pick change; previously Clayton Thorson, QB

  10. Washington Redskins: Ronald Jones, RB, USC
    There are going to be numerous running backs selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Redskins need to consider taking one. Neither Robert Kelley nor Samaje Perine happens to be the long-term answer at the position.

  11. Cincinnati Bengals: Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi State
    No one should be surprised if the Bengals double up on offensive linemen in the first couple of rounds in the 2018 NFL Draft, based on how the blocking unit has performed.

    Pick change; previously Jamarco Jones, OT

  12. Oakland Raiders: Kerryon Johnson, RB, Auburn
    The Marshawn Lynch signing has mostly been a failure, so the Raiders need to move on from him and find a new starting running back.

  13. Miami Dolphins: Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina
    The Dolphins could add another offensive weapon. Addressing tight end makes sense, as I don't have much hope for Julius Thomas.

  14. Arizona Cardinals: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
    Larry Fitzgerald will move into second place all time on the receiving-yardage list early next season, but that only means that he's close to retirement - unless he remains in the NFL until 2023 to break Jerry Rice's records! Regardless, Arizona needs a new receiver to eventually take over as the top downfield target.

    Pick change; previously Baker Mayfield, QB

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
    The Cowboys could use another threat in the receiving corps, and they've shown that they're willing to take chances on troubled players. Antonio Callway has some major off-the-field issues, but some team could give him a shot in the second round.

  16. Detroit Lions: Iman Marshall, CB, USC
    Darius Slay is a great cornerback, but the Lions need another starter across from him to help their struggling secondary.

    Pick change; previously Maurice Hurst, DL

  17. Buffalo Bills: Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma
    The Bills need to give their new quarterback - whoever that may be - another weapon to work with. Another tight end to go along with Charles Clay could definitely be an option.

  18. Green Bay Packers: J.C. Jackson, CB, Maryland
    The Packers almost have to keep picking cornerbacks until they get a talented one, right? It's amazing how bad their pass defense is.

  19. Los Angeles Chargers: DeShon Elliott, S, Texas
    Everyone thought the Chargers would select Malik Hooker No. 7 overall. They went with Mike Williams instead, so here's their chance to obtain an upgrade at safety. They'll need one if Tre Boston, who has played well this year, departs via free agency this spring.

    Pick change; previously Justin Reid, S

  20. New York Jets: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
    Robby Anderson has been excellent this season, but the Jets need another receiver to go along with him. Jermaine Kearse should be a No. 3.

  21. Kansas City Chiefs: Sam Beal, CB, Western Michigan
    The Chiefs were so desperate for cornerback help that they signed Darrelle Revis, who was atrocious against his former team. Kansas City has to target a cornerback early.

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama
    Unless Brandon Carr takes a big pay cut, I can't see him being back next year. The Ravens could pursue another cornerback early in the draft if Carr leaves.

  23. Atlanta Falcons: Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
    The Falcons have three defensive linemen set to hit free agency next spring, so this is an area they could attack in the 2018 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Zach Allen, DE/DT

  24. Carolina Panthers: Justin Reid, S, Stanford
    The secondary is the weak link of Carolina's roster. The Panthers need upgrades at both cornerback and safety.

    Pick change; previously Parris Campbell, WR

  25. Tennessee Titans: Josh Sweat, DE/OLB, Florida State
    Brian Orakpo appears to be slowing down a bit, while Kevin Dodd hasn't shown that he can be an NFL-caliber player yet. There's a good chance the Titans spend an early draft choice on an edge rusher to start across from Derrick Morgan.

    Pick change; previously Harold Landry, DE/OLB

  26. Buffalo Bills: Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia
    The Bills need to improve the right side of the offensive line. Perhaps Dion Dawkins will be able to properly replace Jordan Mills sometime soon. Right guard John Miller must also be upgraded.

  27. San Francisco 49ers: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
    The 49ers will have Pierre Garcon back next year, but they need a second receiver to pair with him to give Jimmy Garoppolo more weapons to work with.

  28. Jacksonville Jaguars: Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
    The Jaguars could use a new tight end, as they don't have anything at the position in the wake of the Julius Thomas trade.

  29. New England Patriots: Tyquan Lewis, DE, Ohio State
    The Patriots will be getting Derek Rivers back from injury next year, but they may decide that he's not enough to bolster their pass rush. Getting a third potent edge rusher to go along with Rivers and Trey Flowers would make sense.

    Pick change; previously Duke Ejiofor, DE

  30. Minnesota Vikings: Chad Thomas, DE, Miami
    Brian Robison has stated that he's going to retire after 2018, so the Vikings will need some new talent behind Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter.

    Pick change; previously Trenton Thompson, DT

  31. Cleveland Browns: Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State
    Jamie Collins hasn't lived up to expectations thus far, and he's getting paid more than $10 million in each of the next couple of seasons. The Browns could decide to go healthier and cheaper.

  32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cameron Smith, LB, USC
    I mentioned the Ryan Shazier situation in the second round. It's unfortunate, but there's a chance Shazier may never play again, so the Steelers will be on the lookout for an early inside linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Akrum Wadley, RB
