  1. Cleveland Browns: Andrew Brown, DT, Virginia
    The Browns could use an interior pass-rushing presence to take some focus away from Myles Garrett.

  2. New York Giants: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson
    Brandon Marshall was a predictable bust as an acquisition last offseason, so the Giants should look for a third receiver to go along with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.

    Pick change; previously Dante Pettis, WR

  3. Indianapolis Colts: Micah Kiser, LB, Virginia
    The Colts really need help at linebacker, as they struggle to cover tight ends and pass-catching running backs.





  4. Seattle Seahawks: Adam Breneman, TE, UMass
    The Seahawks could lose Jimmy Graham to free agency this offseason, so a replacement could be obtained in the early or middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Deon Cain, WR

  5. Denver Broncos: Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon
    Here's another offensive line upgrade for the Broncos, as they need to bolster their front as best as possible for Kirk Cousins, or whomever their next quarterback might be.



  6. San Francisco 49ers: Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame
    The 49ers could lose Carlos Hyde this offseason to free agency. If they do, they'll be looking for another running back to pair with Matt Breida.

  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State
    The Buccaneers need someone to challenge Donovan Smith or eventually replace Demar Dotson, who will be a free agent in a couple of years.



  8. Chicago Bears: Blace Brown, CB, Troy
    I have the Bears selecting a cornerback in the first round, but they could double up on the position because it's such a problem area for them.

  9. Seattle Seahawks: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
    The Seahawks need to find a viable backup behind Russell Wilson.

    Pick change; previously Troy Fumagalli, TE



  10. New Orleans Saints: James Hearns, DE/OLB, Louisville
    Alex Okafor is an impending free agent coming off a torn Achilles, so the Saints will need to find another edge rusher.

  11. Pittsburgh Steelers: Harrison Phillips, DE/DT, Stanford
    The Steelers could stand to add better depth behind Stephon Tuitt and Cameron Heyward.



  12. Washington Redskins: Duke Dawson, CB, Florida
    The Redskins lost Kendall Fuller in the Alex Smith trade, so here's a slot cornerback to replace him.

  13. Green Bay Packers: Kamrin Moore, CB, Boston College
    It shouldn't surprise anyone if the Packers use multiple selections on cornerbacks to finally fix their atrocious secondary.

  14. Cincinnati Bengals: Bradley Bozeman, C, Alabama
    Here's yet another offensive line upgrade for the Bengals, who desperately need to improve their blocking.

    Pick change; previously Allen Lazard, WR

  15. Arizona Cardinals: Martez Carter, RB, Grambling
    A poor man's Tarik Cohen, Martez Carter would be an interesting weapon to add behind David Johnson.




  16. Detroit Lions: Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan
    If the Lions learned one thing from 2017, it's that backup tackle play is very important. Here's an insurance policy in case either Taylor Decker or Ricky Wagner gets hurt again.

  17. Baltimore Ravens: Javon Wims, WR, Georgia
    The Ravens could go with a receiver as early as 16th overall. If they pass on Calvin Ridley, this will be a possibility.

  18. Los Angeles Chargers: Jeff Holland, DE/OLB, Auburn
    The Chargers have two elite edge rushers, but they could add some depth behind them with Jeremiah Attaochu set to hit free agency.

  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
    Trey Burton is a free agent and could command a big price tag because of his potential. Brent Celek, meanwhile, is considering retirement. Here's their replacement if they leave.

    Pick change; previously Allen Lazard, WR

  20. New York Jets: Scott Quessenberry, G, UCLA
    The Jets need to add multiple upgrades to the offensive line, and they could begin addressing that area as early as Round 2.

  21. Buffalo Bills: Kyle Hicks, RB, TCU
    The Bills used to have a deep running back stable, but they lost all of their talented backups for one reason or another.



  22. Cleveland Browns: Frank Ginda, LB, San Jose State
    Jamie Collins has been a disappointment thus far for the Browns. Here's an insurance policy in case he continues to struggle.

  23. Los Angeles Rams: Greg Senat, OT, Wagner
    Here's a backup swing tackle and a potential replacement for Andrew Whitworth in a couple of seasons.



  24. Carolina Panthers: B.J. Hill, DT, N.C. State
    The Panthers are likely to lose Star Lotulelei in free agency this offseason, so here some depth for the interior.

  25. Tennessee Titans: Roc Thomas, RB, Jacksonville State
    The Titans are reportedly going to cut ties with DeMarco Murray, so here's an opportunity to add a running back to pair with Derrick Henry.

  26. Denver Broncos: Breeland Speaks, DE/DT, Ole Miss
    Derek Wolfe has had trouble staying healthy, so here's an insurance policy in case that continues.

  27. New Orleans Saints: Kendrick Norton, DT, Miami
    The Saints cut ties with Nick Fairley because of his unfortunate heart condition, so they could be looking for some mid-round depth for the defensive interior.

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Uchenna Nwosu, DE/OLB, USC
    With James Harrison gone, the Steelers will have to find some depth at outside linebacker in the middle of the draft.

  29. Buffalo Bills: Shaun Dion Hamilton, LB, Alabama
    Excluding Matt Milano, Buffalo's linebacking corps mostly struggled this past season, so here's some help.

  30. Minnesota Vikings: Trayvon Henderson, S, Hawaii
    The Vikings don't have much depth behind Harrison Smith and Andrew Sendejo, so here's a player to potentially fix that problem.

  31. New England Patriots: Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays State
    The Patriots had the worst defense in the NFL through six weeks. They improved, but things still need to change, as we learned in the Super Bowl LII loss. It all starts up front, where they can't generate a consistent pass rush. An interior presence would go a long way in helping them.

    Pick change; previously Josh Sweat, DE

  32. Philadelphia Eagles: Fred Warner, LB, BYU
    The Eagles might lose Nigel Bradham in free agency this offseason, so here's an opportunity to replace him.
