Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
    Regardless of whether Gene Smith is fired or not – it’ll be shocking if he keeps his job – the Jaguars will spend one of their first two picks on a quarterback. Blaine Gabbert is done starting for Jacksonville. He’s absolutely terrible.

    I never imagined that Matt Barkley could fall to Round 2, but it’s definitely a strong possibility now. He really cost himself by going back to school.

  2. Kansas City Chiefs: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
    Kansas City’s new quarterback will need a new receiver if Dwayne Bowe leaves. I wouldn’t spend the money on Bowe; he’s overrated because he’s inconsistent and piles up most of his stats in garbage time. He was responsible for a ton of turnovers, including both of Matt Cassel’s interceptions against the Ravens.

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
    Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman both finished in the top 12 for missed tackles among safeties even though they each were out of the lineup for a couple of games. They also blew tons of coverages each week.The Eagles must find at least one upgrade at the position.

    Pick change; previously Kawann Short, DT

  4. Detroit Lions: Barrett Jones, G/C/OT, Alabama
    Barrett Jones can play virtually any position on the offensive line, including center. Detroit’s current center, the declining Dominic Raiola, will be due $4.05 million in a 2013 walk year. Help is needed at guard as well.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 100-plus yards in four of the five games prior to Pittsburgh, but that’s mostly just great blocking rather than the Law Firm improving. One of the Bengals’ top priorities is finding a capable running back. Giovani Bernard would complement Green-Ellis very well.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
    John Skelton just put on one of the worst quarterbacking performances of all time in Seattle, while Kevin Kolb, who is also iffy, cannot stay healthy. Oh, and let’s not forget Ryan Lindley, who might just be even worse than Skelton. They’ve all made Brian Hoyer look like the second coming of Kurt Warner, as Hoyer was actually capable of getting the ball to Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.

    Arizona needs a franchise quarterback, and Fitzgerald, who generally has a say in whom his team drafts, will pull for one in the first two rounds.

  7. New York Jets: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
    The Jets need to take a chance on a young quarterback because Mark Sanchez is awful. They have to give their fans some hope, or they may lose more supporters than just Fireman Ed.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Margus Hunt, DE/DT, SMU
    The Titans have zero depth behind Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley, and in a division that features Matt Schaub and Andrew Luck, they need all the pass-rushing help they can get.

    Pick change; previously Dallas Thomas, G/OT

  9. Buffalo Bills: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
    The Bills drafted a quarterback in the first round, so they’ll need to find a weapon for him. Steve Johnson is currently the only downfield play-maker on Buffalo’s roster.

  10. Miami Dolphins: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
    Stud defensive tackle Randy Starks will be a free agent in March. If the Dolphins can’t retain him, they’ll have to find a replacement this offseason.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
    The Buccaneers don’t ever shy away from doubling up on positions. They may do so at cornerback, as this was a huge area of need even before the Aqib Talib trade.



  12. Carolina Panthers: Dallas Thomas, OT/G, Tennessee
    Jeff Otah was released before the start of the season, and right tackle Byron Bell struggled as a replacement. Meanwhile, left tackle Jordan Gross will be 33 in July, so the Panthers need some stability and young blood up front.

    Pick change; previously Matt Elam, S

  13. San Diego Chargers: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
    The Chargers almost have to make this pick. Philip Rivers appears to be regressing, but it’s impossible to tell if that’s the case because he’s getting slaughtered behind a pathetic offensive line. San Diego cannot, under any circumstances, enter the 2013 season with Jared Gaither as its starting left tackle. He’s just way too injury-prone and unreliable.

  14. St. Louis Rams: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford
    Here’s a weapon for Sam Bradford. The Rams don’t have anything at tight end, as Lance Kendricks has been a huge disappointment.

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Eric Reid, S, LSU
    I’ve learned that the Cowboys are interested in Eric Reid. He makes sense for them, as the safety position was a major weak point after Barry Church tore his Achilles’ tendon. Church was extended prior to the injury, but he’s owed less than $1 million next year, so that won’t prevent Dallas from picking a safety early.

    Pick change; previously Johnathan Jenkins, NT

  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
    The Steelers wanted Dont’a Hightower, but David DeCastro was just too good to pass up at No. 24 this past April. Pittsburgh still has to find an inside linebacker because Larry Foote was awful this year.

    Pick change; previously Eric Reid, S

  17. New York Giants: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
    Marvin Austin has shown nothing thus far in his career, so the Giants may bring in another young defensive tackle with Rocky Bernard set to hit free agency.

    Pick change; previously Margus Hunt, DE/DT

  18. Chicago Bears: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama
    If you’ve watched the Bears struggle to score over the past few weeks, you know that they need to find multiple upgrades for their struggling offensive line.



  19. Washington Redskins: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
    DeAngelo Hall, who has been inconsistent this year, is due $7.5 million in 2013, but none of it is guaranteed. Josh Wilson, meanwhile, will be entering his contract year. The Redskins will have to add some depth at cornerback.

  20. Minnesota Vikings: Robert Woods, WR, USC
    The Vikings have to add more talent to complement Christian Ponder. They currently need an upgrade across from Percy Harvin, as Jerome Simpson is way too inconsistent to be a No. 2 receiver. Harvin may not even be back with the Vikings next year, so Minnesota may target two wideout upgrades this offseason.

    Pick change; previously Cobi Hamilton, WR

  21. Baltimore Ravens: Oday Aboushi, OT, Virginia
    The Ravens should look into finding a new left tackle. Michael Oher would be best suited at right tackle, which would allow Kelechi Osemele to move inside.

    Pick change; previously Da’Rick Rogers, WR

  22. Cincinnati Bengals: T.J. McDonald, S, USC
    The Bengals had a big need at safety, but they didn’t address the position until the fifth round this past April. They’ll put more effort into finding an upgrade the following offseason because they won’t survive with Reggie Nelson and the benched Taylor Mays (or cornerback Nate Clements, who is playing out of position) as their starters.



  23. Seattle Seahawks: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina
    Seattle’s defense is dominant, but one thing the unit is lacking is a consistent interior pass-rushing presence. Perhaps Sylvester Williams and his six sacks this year can fix that.

  24. Green Bay Packers: Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
    James Starks has yet to prove that he can stay healthy, while Alex Green has shown nothing in several starts. Cedric Benson is obviously not a long-term answer, though I’ve been impressed with DuJuan Harris in his limited action. Still, the Packers may address the running back position early in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  25. Miami Dolphins: Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia
    Brian Hartline hasn’t done very much since posting 200-plus yards at Arizona, so it’s clear that he’s not a No. 1. The Dolphins need a top option for the inconsistent Ryan Tannehill.

  26. Houston Texans: Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas
    The Texans have needed a No. 2 receiver for years, but now that Andre Johnson is into his 30s, it won’t be long before they have to secure a new No. 1 wideout for Matt Schaub.

    Pick change; previously Oday Aboushi, OT

  27. San Francisco 49ers: Alex Okafor, DE/OLB, Texas
    The 49ers have a fantastic defense, but they have a serious lack of depth at rush linebacker. With so few needs, they can afford to take the best player available to address that problem.

    Pick change; previously Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB

  28. New England Patriots: David Amerson, CB/S, N.C. State
    Despite Steve Gregory’s performance against the pathetic Jets, New England still has issues at safety it’ll need to address this offseason. David Amerson may have to move to safety in the NFL, but I’m sure Bill Belichick will love his versatility.

  29. Atlanta Falcons: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
    Michael Turner is done. He’s looked like he’s been running in quicksand for most of this season, so he won’t be on the roster much longer.

    Pick change; previously Larry Warford, G

  30. Denver Broncos: Everett Dawkins, DT, Florida State
    The Broncos spent a second-rounder this past April on Derek Wolfe, but he’s playing defensive end and moving inside on nickel situations. That’s why Denver still needs a ton of help at defensive tackle.
