  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sanders Commings, CB/S, Georgia
    Derek Cox signed with the Broncos. Aaron Ross signed with the Giants. Rashean Mathis and William Middleton are gone. That leaves two guys named Mike Harris and Alan Ball as the starting cornerbacks. That’s not good.

    Sanders Commings fits perfectly into Gus Bradley’s system as a tall, lanky corner.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Tharold Simon, CB

  2. Kansas City Chiefs: Barrett Jones, G/C/OT, Alabama
    The Chiefs need depth at both guard and center. Barrett Jones is capable of playing four positions up front, so he’d be a great solution.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Ryan Otten, TE, San Jose State
    The Raiders pretty much need everything, including an intermediate target for their new quarterback. Brandon Myers signed with the Giants, so there’s a hole at tight end.

  4. Philadelphia Eagles: Marquise Goodwin, WR/KR, Texas
    The Eagles will be looking at a receiver in the middle rounds for two reasons. First, the injury-prone Jeremy Maclin is entering his contract year and could be traded. Second, Chip Kelly doesn’t have anyone to handle his De’Anthony Thomas role.

    Pick change; previously Trevardo Williams, DE/OLB



  5. Minnesota Vikings: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson
    Toby Gerhart is also entering his contract year and could be traded. The Vikings will need a No. 2 back in 2014 and beyond.

    Pick change; previously Will Davis, CB

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
    Adrian Wilson and Kerry Rhodes were both cut, which opened up a major hole at safety for Arizona. Yeremiah Bell was signed, but he’s just one player, and a short-term solution at that.

  7. Cleveland Browns: Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers
    I have the Browns drafting Xavier Rhodes in the first round, but a second cornerback could be added to really help solidify the position.

    Pick change; previously Kenny Stills, WR

  8. Buffalo Bills: Ty Powell, LB, Harding
    Kelvin Sheppard was a big disappointment in his sophomore campaign. Nick Barnett, meanwhile, was released. Two upgrades are needed at linebacker.

  9. New York Jets: Dwayne Gratz, CB, Connecticut
    The Jets will obviously have to find some cornerback help if Darrelle Revis is traded. Rex Ryan used to love drafting corners when he was in Baltimore, but the Jets haven’t possessed many picks to be able to do that because they’ve traded up for one too many bums.

  10. Tennessee Titans: Zaviar Gooden, OLB, Missouri
    The Titans barely have any depth at linebacker, so they’ll have to use a mid-round pick to fix that.

  11. Carolina Panthers: Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
    Panthers’ head coach Commander Adama hinted that signing Mike Wallace was a possibility. That didn’t happen, but it at least was an indication that Carolina is looking to upgrade the receiver position. Another possibility is drafting Colonel Tigh, as seen in my April Fools Mock Draft.

    Pick change; previously Ryan Swope, WR

  12. New Orleans Saints: William Gholston, DE/DT, Michigan State
    The Saints need to continue adding personnel for their new 3-4. They’re pretty thin up front.

    Pick change; previously Montori Hughes, NT



  13. San Diego Chargers: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
    New regimes mean new quarterbacks. All the Chargers have behind Philip Rivers is Charlie Whitehurst.

  14. Miami Dolphins: Montori Hughes, NT, Tennessee-Martin
    The Dolphins franchised Randy Starks, but Paul Soliai is entering his walk year. That means both defensive tackles will be free agents next March. Miami has shown interest in plenty of defensive tackles this offseason, so it’ll probably draft one early.

    Pick change; previously Logan Ryan, CB

  15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin
    The Buccaneers need an upgrade behind Doug Martin in the event that LeGarrette Blount is dealt.

  16. St. Louis Rams: Shawn Williams, S, Georgia
    The Rams have absolutely nothing at safety. Both Craig Dahl and Quintin Mikell are gone, leaving just Rodney McLeon and Darian Stewart at the position. Neither played very much in 2012.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Williams, NT

  17. Dallas Cowboys: Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
    The Cowboys are expected to use a mid-round pick on a running back. Jerry Jones recently said that none of DeMarco Murray’s current backups are considered No. 2 runners.

    Pick change; previously Andre Ellington, RB

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: John Simon, DE/OLB, Ohio State
    The Steelers could definitely double up on pass-rushers in the 2013 NFL Draft. They’re really hurting for depth at outside linebacker, and they really like John Simon.

    Pick change; previously Josh Boyce, WR

  19. New York Giants: Luke Marquardt, OT, Azusa Pacific
    The Giants need to bring in someone to challenge David Diehl at right tackle because Diehl has played like a human turnstile in recent years.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Poyer, CB

  20. Chicago Bears: B.W. Webb, CB, William & Mary
    All five of Chicago’s top cornerbacks will be hitting free agency next spring. That’s going to be a tough situation if the Bears don’t draft anyone at the position.

    Pick change; previously Marquise Goodwin, WR



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
    Cincinnati just drafted Dre Kirkpatrick in the first round last year, but an early cornerback selection is still in play because the team doesn’t have much long-term cornerback depth. That’s a problem because Mike Zimmer loves having three corners on the field.

  22. Washington Redskins: Duke Williams, S, Nevada
    The Redskins could defintiely draft two safeties. Brandon Meriweather is coming off a torn ACL and may not be ready for Week 1.

  23. Minnesota Vikings: Will Davis, CB, Utah State
    The Vikings shocked everyone when they cut Antoine Winfield recently. Cornerback help is now needed.

    Pick change; previously Joseph Randle, RB

  24. Indianapolis Colts: Aaron Mellette, WR, Elon
    The Colts signed Darrius Heyward-Bey, but he can’t be considered a safe option to start across from Reggie Wayne. The Colts need to bring in someone to challenge for that spot.

    Pick change; previously Alvin Bailey, G



  25. Green Bay Packers: David Quessenberry, G/C/OT, San Jose State
    Can anyone explain why Jeff Saturday was voted to the Pro Bowl? He didn’t even start at the end of the season. The Packers had major problems at center after letting Scott Wells walk away, so they’ll have to address that area in April. Ted Thompson would love to have someone like David Quessenberry, who can play pretty much any position.

    Pick change; previously Knile Davis, RB

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Matt Scott, QB, Arizona
    The Seahawks need a backup quarterback. They signed Brady Quinn, but Seattle could use more of a long-term solution behind Russell Wilson.

    Pick change; previously Tyler Bray, QB

  27. Houston Texans: Trevardo Williams, DE/OLB, Connecticut
    The Texans lost Connor Barwin to the Eagles, so they’ll have to find some depth behind Brooks Reed and Whitney Mercilus.

    Pick change; previously Brennan Williams, OT

  28. Denver Broncos: Tharold Simon, CB, LSU
    The Broncos don’t have a current need for a cornerback, but they definitely will soon. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will be a free agent next spring, while Champ Bailey will be due $9 million in a walk year, so he’ll probably be cut if he plays like he did against the Ravens.

    Pick change; previously Sanders Commings, CB/S

  29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Vinston Painter, OT, Virginia Tech
    Donald Penn struggled to close out the year, while Demar Dotson isn’t very good. The Buccaneers will be looking to bring in another tackle.

    Pick change; previously William Gholston, DE/DT

  30. Atlanta Falcons: Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State
    The Falcons are fully expected to double up on cornerbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft. They’re so incredibly thin at the position.

    Pick change; previously Sean Porter, OLB

  31. San Francisco 49ers: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
    There was some talk at the Combine about how the 49ers might spend a mid-round selection on Marcus Lattimore because they have so many draft choices. In the wake of the Alex Smith trade, that’s an even greater possibility, as San Francisco can afford to take this sort of gamble. Lattimore may not be able to play in 2013, but the 49ers could have a stud back in 2014 and beyond.

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Brennan Williams, OT, North Carolina
    Bryant McKinnie hasn’t re-signed yet, so the Ravens may want to bring in another offensive tackle. As it stands now, Kelechi Osemele would be Joe Flacco’s blind-side protector. That can’t happen.

    Pick change; previously Dwayne Gratz, CB

  33. Baltimore Ravens: Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
    The Ravens could double up on the receiver position, given that there’s not much on the roster behind Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.

    Pick change; previously Brian Schwenke, C

  34. San Francisco 49ers: Josh Evans, S, Florida
    The 49ers could draft two safeties. One has to replace Dashon Goldson, while the other could take over for Donte Whitner in the near future. Whitner will be a free agent next spring.

    Pick change; previously Travis Kelce, TE

  35. Detroit Lions: Brian Schwenke, C, California
    The Lions will almost surely spend another pick on a lineman after taking Eric Fisher at No. 5 overall. Brian Schwenke, whom they coached at the Senior Bowl, can play both guard and center.

    Pick change; previously Cobi Hamilton, WR

  36. Atlanta Falcons: Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
    Steven Jackson was signed as a short-term solution at running back. The Falcons will want to bring in an option for the future sometime soon.

    Pick change; previously Stepfan Taylor, RB
