  1. Kansas City Chiefs: William Gholston, DE/DT, Michigan State
    Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson will be back for some strange reason, but they won’t be around much longer. Future replacements are needed.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously John Simon, DE/OLB

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Hugh Thornton, G, Illinois
    Eben Britton was benched this past season, and replacement Mike Brewster wasn’t much better. The Jaguars will likely spend a Round 2-5 pick on a replacement.

    Pick change; previously Brian Winters, G

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Kasa, TE, Colorado
    The Eagles have shown a ton of interest in Nick Kasa – go here to see the 2013 NFL Draft Prospect Meetings – but that shouldn’t be a surprise, given that Kelly is familiar with Kasa, having coached against him in the Pac-12. Kelly loves utilizing tight ends in his offense, and the Eagles need one with Brent Celek in decline.

    Pick change; previously T.J. McDonald, S

  4. Detroit Lions: Jawan Jamison, RB, Rutgers
    The Lions talked about their lacking speed element at running back recently. They had it with Jahvid Best, but he may never play again.



  5. Seattle Seahawks: Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State
    Here’s some more help for Russell Wilson. Despite Zach Miller’s heroic conversion on third-and-long early against Washington, the Seahawks could look into bringing in a new tight end.

    Pick change; previously Ryan Otten, TE

  6. Cleveland Browns: Brandon McGee, CB, Miami
    Sheldon Brown is not expected back with the Browns, so Michael Lombardi will have to find a starter across from Joe Haden.

  7. Arizona Cardinals: Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
    The Cardinals don’t have a proven running back on their roster, so they may spend a mid-round pick on a possible upgrade.

    Pick change; previously Christine Michael, RB

  8. New York Jets: Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
    New York desperately needs an upgrade at wideout for obvious reasons. Santonio Holmes is a bum, while Stephen Hill hasn’t really shown much yet.

    Pick change; previously Christine Michael, RB

  9. Tennessee Titans: Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina
    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.

  10. Buffalo Bills: Shawn Williams, S, Georgia
    The Bills cut George Wilson, so they’ll need some depth at safety.

  11. New Orleans Saints: Jordan Mills, OT, Louisiana Tech
    The Saints obviously need tons of help on defense, but they also have to find a left tackle for Drew Brees, who didn’t have much time in the pocket this past season. General manager Mickey Loomis recently discussed the challenge of re-signing Jermon Bushrod, so it sounds like he’ll be moving in a different direction at the position.

    Pick change; previously Montori Hughes, NT

  12. San Diego Chargers: Chase Thomas, DE/OLB, Stanford
    Shaun Phillips is a free agent, so San Diego will need a complement for Melvin Ingram if it can’t retain its long-time veteran.

    Pick change; previously Josh Boyce, WR



  13. Miami Dolphins: Gerald Hodges, OLB, Penn State
    Something the Dolphins must do this offseason is find some linebacker depth because they’re awfully thin there.

    Pick change; previously Michael Williams, TE

  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Michael Williams, TE, Alabama
    Charlie Campbell (@DraftCampbell) has informed me that the Buccaneers will be targeting a tight end early in the 2013 NFL Draft. Dallas Clark is a worn-down free agent, while Luke Stocker has been a disappointment thus far. Josh Freeman needs a consistent intermediate target.

    Pick change; previously Luke Marquardt, OT

  15. Carolina Panthers: Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse
    Hiro Nakamura could stop time. Haruki Nakamura can’t stop anyone. He has to be upgraded. The Panthers desperately need safety help.

    Pick change; previously Sanders Commings, S

  16. St. Louis Rams: Sanders Commings, S, Georgia
    The Rams already had a need at safety prior to the Quintin Mikell release. Now this hole is even more glaring.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Hill, DT

  17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
    Rashard Mendenhall won’t be back next year and Jonathan Dwyer isn’t viewed as a starter per reports, so the Steelers will need to find a new running back.

  18. Dallas Cowboys: Josh Boyce, WR, TCU
    Miles Austin-Jones will be back next year, but he may not be around much longer. The Cowboys will have to find a long-term solution across from Dez Bryant.

    Pick change; previously Kenny Stills, WR

  19. New York Giants: Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma
    The Giants could be looking for some depth at receiver, given that Ramses Barden won’t be back next year.

    Pick change; previously Gerald Hodges, OLB

  20. Chicago Bears: Brian Winters, G, Kent State
    Here’s more offensive line help for the Bears. The front office really needs to shore up Jay Cutler’s protection.

    Pick change; previously Oday Aboushi, G/OT



  21. Washington Redskins: Luke Marquardt, OT, Azusa Pacific
    The Redskins just signed Tony Pashos, but they may want to bring in a young tackle for competition.

    Pick change; previously Kevin Reddick, ILB

  22. Minnesota Vikings: Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
    Toby Gerhart is entering his contract year and could be traded. The Vikings will need a No. 2 back in 2014 and beyond.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Zac Dysert, QB, Miami of Ohio
    The Bengals’ current No. 2 quarterback is Zac Robinson, so they may draft a backup signal-caller in the middle rounds this April.

  24. San Francisco 49ers: Kwame Geathers, NT, Georgia
    The 49ers don’t really have a quality nose tackle. They don’t really need one based on the formations they play, but this is a luxury pick they can afford to make because they have so few needs.



  25. Seattle Seahawks: Demetrius McCray, CB, Appalachian State
    The Seahawks haven’t drafted a cornerback yet, so here’s one. Demetrius McCray is the type of tall, long corner Pete Carroll loves to have on his defense.

  26. Green Bay Packers: Stansly Maponga, DE/OLB, TCU
    The Packers need to make sure Erik Walden isn’t on the field next year. He is terrible. He’s a free agent anyway.

    Pick change; previously Chase Thomas, DE/OLB

  27. Houston Texans: Oday Aboushi, G/OT, Virginia
    The Texans want to bolster their offensive line this offseason. They’re very thin at tackle.

    Pick change; previously Stansly Maponga, DE/OLB

  28. Denver Broncos: Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State
    The Broncos will probably be searching for two defensive tackles this offseason.

    Pick change; previously Earl Wolff, S

  29. Washington Redskins: Trevardo Williams, DE/OLB, Connecticut
    The Redskins may want to bring in an extra pass-rusher. They were hurting there when Brian Orakpo went down in September.

    Pick change; previously Reid Fragel, OT

  30. Atlanta Falcons: Akeem Spence, DT, Illinois
    More help for the Falcons’ defensive line. Peria Jerry just can’t seem to live up to his potential because of his knee problems.

  31. San Francisco 49ers: Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina
    The 49ers obviously have two outstanding inside linebackers in Patrick Willis and Navorro Bowman, but with Larry Grant hitting free agency, there’s very little depth at that position.

    Pick change; previously Nico Johnson, ILB

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Michael Mauti, ILB, Penn State
    Ray Lewis is retiring, while Dannell Ellerbe will be a free agent this spring. The Ravens have to find some help at inside linebacker.

    Michael Mauti was considered a second-day prospect prior to tearing his ACL. He’s a tremendous leader who could eventually be a starter somewhere.

    Pick change; previously Nico Johnson, ILB
