section. Follow @walterfootball

Houston Texans: Daniel McCullers, NT, Tennessee
The Texans don't really have a nose tackle, so they could choose one earlier than this.
Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Washington Redskins: Tre Boston, S, North Carolina
The Redskins wanted to address the safety position this offseason. All they've done so far is bring Brandon Meriweather back and sign Ryan Clark, which is not enough.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Lamin Barrow, ILB, LSU
The Buccaneers need to get stronger in the middle of their defense, and they've apparently taken a liking to Lamin Barrow, as you can see in the NFL Draft Prospect Visits List.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Walt Aikens, CB, Liberty
The Jaguars definitely need some help at corner to help combat Andrew Luck.
Cleveland Browns: Kenny Ladler, S, Vanderbilt
The Browns need safety depth and perhaps someone to challenge Tashaun Gipson for the starting job.
Seattle Seahawks: Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley State
Golden Tate left for Detroit, but the Seahawks needed an upgrade at receiver anyway (Cris Carter would agree).
Atlanta Falcons: Nevin Lawson, CB, Utah State
The Falcons could stand to add some corner depth, so they may want to try someone they coached at the Senior Bowl.
Minnesota Vikings: Telvin Smith, OLB, Florida State
The Vikings have just one sure thing at linebacker, and that would be Chad Greenway, who is coming off an awful season.
Buffalo Bills: Jerick McKinnon, RB, Georgia Southern
The Bills have brought in a bunch of running backs, so they could add one in the middle rounds. Fred Jackson is a 33-year-old entering his contract season.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Crockett Gilmore, TE, Colorado State
The Jaguars could stand to add another tight end behind Marcedes Lewis.
Tennessee Titans: Deion Belue, CB, Alabama
The Titans addressed a bunch of areas on their roster this offseason, but one position of need that they didn't get to fix was cornerback. They lost Alterraun Verner to the Buccaneers.
New York Giants: Ethan Westbrooks, DE, West Texas A&M
Considering the lack of depth on the defensive line, the Giants could double dip on the front.
St. Louis Rams: Brandon Linder, G, Miami
The Rams still have a hole at one of the guard positions, even after retaining Rodger Saffold.
New York Jets: Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson
The Jets have met with Tajh Boyd on multiple occasions, so they might be interested in spending a third-day selection on him.
Miami Dolphins: Shaquille Richardson, CB, Arizona
Cortland Finnegan may have to start at corner for the Dolphins. Think they need help at the position?
Chicago Bears: Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB, Boston College
The Bears must add some much-needed talent to their very thin linebacking corps.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Antone Exum, CB, Virginia Tech
It wouldn't be surprising to see the Steelers double up on corners, considering how much they need to improve the position.
Dallas Cowboys: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
Considering their major need for pass-rushers, it wouldn't surprise me if the Cowboys doubled up at defensive end during the draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Jon Halapio, G, Florida
More interior offensive line help for the Jaguars, who really need to bolster their front for their new quarterback.
Arizona Cardinals: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
Last year's second-round pick, Kevin Minter, will likely start for the departed Karlos Dansby. Depth is needed at inside linebacker, however.
Pick change; previously Yawin Smallwood, ILB
Green Bay Packers: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State
Aaron Rodgers wanted Ted Thompson to retain Evan Dietrich-Smith, but that didn't happen. The Packers, as a consequence, could address the center position in the early or middle rounds.
Philadelphia Eagles: Taylor Hart, DE/DT, Oregon
The Eagles could use two selections on defensive linemen because they are a bit thin up front.
Kansas City Chiefs: Brent Urban, DE/DT Virginia
The Chiefs may want to address the five-technique position after losing Tyson Jackson to Atlanta this offseason.
Cincinnati Bengals: Jalen Saunders, WR, Oklahoma
Cincinnati may want to bolster its receiving depth after losing Andrew Hawkins to the Browns.
San Diego Chargers: Marqueston Huff, S, Wyoming
Here's some more secondary depth for the Chargers, who will probably want to add a safety at some point.
Indianapolis Colts: Russell Bodine, C, North Carolina
Another interior lineman for the Colts. Their biggest need might be at center.
New Orleans Saints: Brock Coyle, LB, Montana
David Hawthorne has not played well, so the Saints may want to draft some insurance just in case that trend continues,
Carolina Panthers: Ross Cockrell, CB, Duke
It shouldn't surprise anyone if the Panthers double up on either position in their thin secondary.
New Orleans Saints: Deandre Coleman, DE/DT, California
The Saints, who are still transitioning into their 3-4, could use some depth up front behind Cameron Jordan and Akiem Hicks.
San Francisco 49ers: Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB, Alabama
The 49ers may want some pass-rushing insurance just in case Aldon Smith gets into trouble again.
Denver Broncos: Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane
The Broncos lost Eric Decker this offseason, and Wes Welker may not be around for much longer.
Seattle Seahawks: Blake Annen, TE, Cincinnati
There's a chance Zach Miller won't be back next year, so the Seahawks will have to find another tight end to go along with Luke Willson.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Max Bullough, ILB, Michigan State
The Steelers may spend a mid-round choice on an inside linebacker to address depth issues at that position.
New York Giants: Shamar Stephen, DT, Connecticut
The Giants have such a need at defensive tackle that they could double dip at the position.
Pick change; previously Ed Reynolds, S
Baltimore Ravens: Storm Johnson, RB, Central Florida
The Ravens were thinking about drafting a running back even before all of the Ray Rice stuff went down. They could consequently take two backs.
Green Bay Packers: David Fales, QB, San Jose State
Mike McCarthy told the media that he wants to draft a quarterback early. Can you blame him after what happened this past season?
