  1. Green Bay Packers: Tony Adams, C/G, N.C. State
    Aaron Rodgers' pass protection isn't so great on the inside, so the Packers are expected to add an interior blocker at some point.

  2. New York Giants: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson
    Brandon Marshall is gone, so even if Odell Beckham Jr. remains with the Giants for a while, the front office will have to obtain another receiver.

  3. Indianapolis Colts: Sean Welsh, G/C, Iowa
    The Colts have a couple of holes on their offensive line, so they need to use multiple picks on blockers.





  4. Seattle Seahawks: Shaquem Griffin, LB, Central Florida
    The Seahawks have two stellar linebackers, but not much else at the position, so this needs to be addressed.



  5. Washington Redskins: Cole Madison, G, Washington State
    The Redskins have a solid offensive line when everyone's healthy, but left guard and center must be addressed.

  6. San Francisco 49ers: Marcell Ateman, WR, Oklahoma State
    The 49ers have shown interest in Marcell Ateman, so he's someone they could target in the middle rounds, even if they grab a wideout earlier.

  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Avonte Maddox, CB, Pittsburgh
    Brent Grimes has just one or two more years remaining with the Buccaneers, so here's a potential future starter.



  8. Chicago Bears: Skyler Phillips, G, Idaho State
    The Bears released talented guard Josh Sitton, so he'll be missed unless Chicago finds a proper replacement for him. Two blockers could be added to aid the interior.

  9. Seattle Seahawks: Durham Smythe, TE, Notre Dame
    The Seahawks lost Jimmy Graham to the Packers this offseason, so a replacement could be obtained in the early or middle rounds.



  10. New Orleans Saints: Folorunso Fatukasi, DT, Connecticut
    The Saints lost Nick Fairley to a heart condition, so they'll be looking to spend an early pick on an interior pass-rusher.

  11. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dorian O'Daniel, LB, Clemson
    The Steelers needed a linebacker even before Ryan Shazier's injury, so they could double up at the position.



  12. Denver Broncos: Isaac Yiadom, CB, Boston College
    The Broncos are looking to spend an early-round selection on a cornerback to replace Aqib Talib.

  13. Cleveland Browns: Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
    This is a nice value pick for the Browns, who may look into adding some edge-rushing depth.

  14. Cincinnati Bengals: Chase Litton, QB, Marshall
    Marvin Lewis said he wanted to start from scratch. Does that mean finding a new quarterback in the middle of the 2018 NFL Draft?

  15. Arizona Cardinals: Mark Walton, RB, Miami
    The Redskins could use a mid-round pick on a running back, as they don't have any exciting options at the position.




  16. Detroit Lions: Brandon Parker, OT, North Carolina A&T
    The Lions have spent a lot of time interviewing tackles this offseason. Perhaps they're in the market for a reliable swing tackle in the event of another injury to Taylor Decker.

  17. Baltimore Ravens: Genard Avery, LB, Memphis
    The Ravens could use some help next to C.J. Mosley, and Genrard Avery has generated some interest from them.

  18. Los Angeles Chargers: Mason Cole, C, Michigan
    The Chargers signed Mike Pouncey, but given his poor hip condition, he may not last very long.

  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Deadrin Senat, DT, South Florida
    The Eagles may not have Michael Bennett available next season, depending on what happens in the case against him. Here's an insurance policy.

  20. New York Jets: R.J. McIntosh, DT, Miami
    The Jets lost Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson the past couple of offseasons, so they'll be looking for help at five-technique.

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame
    The Bengals lost Jeremy Hill this offseason, so they could stand to add another running back late in the draft for depth purposes.





  22. Oakland Raiders: Marcus Allen, S, Penn State
    The Raiders re-signed Reggie Nelson as a short-term answer at safety, but they need better play there for the long haul.

  23. Denver Broncos: Trayvon Henderson, S, Hawaii
    The Broncos will likely look into selecting a safety at some point, as it's a need they didn't address in free agency.



  24. Carolina Panthers: Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State
    The Panthers could stand to upgrade their blocking, or at least find some depth on the offensive line.

  25. Tennessee Titans: Dane Cruikshank, S/CB, Arizona
    The Titans haven't added any depth to their secondary yet, which is something that should be addressed in the middle rounds.

  26. Washington Redskins: Bradley Bozeman, C, Alabama
    The Redskins mostly have a strong offensive line, but they really could use an upgrade at center, especially with Spencer Long gone.

  27. New Orleans Saints: Troy Apke, S, Penn State
    The Saints probably won't have Kenny Vaccaro back next year, so here's a replacement.

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Russell Gage, WR, LSU
    There are reports circulating about the Steelers potentially trading Martavis Bryant, so here's a possible replacement.

    Pick change; previously Justin Watson, WR

  29. Buffalo Bills: Chad Thomas, DE, Miami
    The Bills have a solid group of edge rushers, but they may want to add one more at some point on Day 3.

  30. Minnesota Vikings: Alex Cappa, OT/G, Humboldt State
    As mentioned earlier, it's not too difficult to find solid mid-round guards, so this is something the Vikings may opt to do.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Natrell Jamerson, S, Wisconsin
    There's a chance Earl Thomas could be traded in the near future, so the Seahawks need to find a safety at some point.

  32. Philadelphia Eagles: Jamil Demby, G, Maine
    Here's more offensive line depth for the Eagles, as Doug Pederson has learned from Andy Reid that you can never have too many quality blockers.

  33. Cincinnati Bengals: Deon Yelder, TE, Western Kentucky
    It's difficult to trust Tyler Eifert to stay healthy, so here's a tight end for the future.

  34. Dallas Cowboys: Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
    Jason Witten won't be around much longer, so here's a potential successor for him.

  35. Green Bay Packers: Kevin Toliver, CB, LSU
    The Packers must put a ton of energy into upgrading their cornerback situation, as they have one of the worst secondaries in the NFL.

  36. Oakland Raiders: Simmie Cobbs Jr., WR, Indiana
    It wouldn't surprise me if the Raiders added a receiver earlier than this - Anthony Miller in Round 2? - but they need to address the position at some point, given Jordy Nelson's declining skills.

  37. Green Bay Packers: Marquis Haynes, DE/OLB, Ole Miss
    Clay Matthews turns 32 this summer, so it would make sense for the Packers to make some plans for the future.
