  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Lamarcus Joyner, S, Florida State
    There are countless reasons why the Jaguars suck. Terrible safety play is just one of them.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. New York Jets: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
    Another weapon for Geno Smith because Santonio Holmes won’t be around much longer.

  3. Minnesota Vikings: David Yankey, G/OT, Stanford
    The Vikings had to address the interior of their offensive line in the 2013 NFL Draft. They did so – but only in the sixth and seventh rounds.

  4. New York Giants: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    One area the Giants neglected in the 2013 NFL Draft that I thought they should have addressed was the cornerback position. All of their corners have struggled this year, so I don’t know what they were thinking by failing to upgrade the position.

    Pick change; previously Quandre Diggs, CB



  5. Atlanta Falcons: Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
    With Roddy White quickly declining and barely being able to take the field, the Falcons will have to find an eventual replacement across from Julio Jones.

    Pick change; previously Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB

  6. Cleveland Browns: Michael Dyer, RB, Louisville
    The Browns apparently plan on courting Ben Tate in free agency, but what if he never hits the market or chooses to sign elsewhere?

    Pick change; previously Charles Sims, RB

  7. Houston Texans: Stephen Morris, QB, Miami
    Case Keenum has played well thus far, but the Texans may think about spending a mid-round pick on a quarterback just in case Keenum is a mirage.

    Pick change; previously Shayne Skov, ILB

  8. Buffalo Bills: Xavier Grimble, TE, USC
    E.J. Manuel, who prefers checking down, would love having an upgrade at tight end at his disposal.

  9. St. Louis Rams: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    The Rams should think about drafting a quarterback on Day 2 just in case Sam Bradford continues to be mediocre (and injury-prone).

    Pick change; previously Aaron Murray, QB

  10. Oakland Raiders: Will Sutton, DE/DT, Arizona State
    The Raiders have no interior pass rush. Acquiring a boost in that area would really help the defense.

    Pick change; previously Odell Beckham, WR

  11. Washington Redskins: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
    ESPN loves talking up London Fletcher by saying he’s still great, but he can barely move. He’s one of the reasons the Redskins are so inept on defense.

    Pick change; previously Yawin Smallwood, ILB

  12. Baltimore Ravens: Russell Bodine, C, North Carolina
    Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and others are gone, but perhaps the player the Ravens miss most is Matt Birk. His replacements at center have been horrible. Almost anyone would be an upgrade.

    Pick change; previously Travis Swanson, C



  13. Philadelphia Eagles: Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State
    Philadelphia’s defense is terrible for many reasons, one of which is the safety position. Nate Allen is garbage, while Patrick Chung can’t stay healthy.

  14. Cleveland Browns: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss
    Brad Nessler called Greg Little “Mr. Dependable.” That’s pretty accurate, but only if you’re depending on Little dropping passes. The Browns need a new No. 2 wideout.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Daniel McCullers, NT, Tennessee
    The 49ers don’t need a legitimate nose tackle to run their defense, but having one definitely wouldn’t hurt.

  16. Miami Dolphins: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
    The Dolphins need help at cornerback. Brent Grimes, coming off a torn Achilles, is just a short-term solution. Dimitri Patterson shouldn’t be a No. 2 corner.

    Pick change; previously Damian Swann, CB

  17. Arizona Cardinals: Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami
    Seantrel Henderson has the upside to be a great left tackle in the NFL. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to put it together mentally yet. The Cardinals have taken chances on troubled players, so maybe they’ll be able to get the most out of Henderson.

  18. San Diego Chargers: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
    The Chargers have a solid starting front line on defense, but they don’t have much depth.

  19. Chicago Bears: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
    I find it completely insane that the Bears could let Jay Cutler walk. If that happens, they’ll obviously be searching for a quarterback in the spring.

    Pick change; previously Will Sutton, DT

  20. Detroit Lions: Damian Swann, CB, Georgia
    It might still be early, but Darius Slay and Bullet Bill Bentley have been major disappointments for the Lions thus far. If they continue to struggle, the front office will consider a cornerback early.

    Pick change; previously Rashaad Reynolds, CB



  21. New York Jets: Ty Zimmerman, S, Kansas State
    The Jets have major problems at safety, as neither Antonio Allen nor Dawan Landry should be starting.

  22. Dallas Cowboys: Zack Martin, G/OT, Notre Dame
    The Cowboys are so desperate at guard that they lured Brian Waters out of semi-retirement. Waters is now out for the year. So much for that.

  23. Carolina Panthers: Josh Huff, WR, Oregon
    How much longer are the Panthers going to rely on Brandon LaFell as a starting receiver? They need more explosion on offense; not to mention a No. 1 receiver after Steve Smith retires.

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Deandre Coleman, DT, California
    Domata Peko, who will be entering his contract season in 2014, has not performed well this year. Meanwhile, Devon Still, a 2012 second-rounder, has shown nothing thus far.



  25. Green Bay Packers: Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB, USC
    Nick Perry finally started playing well just before getting hurt. The Packers still need depth behind Perry and Clay Matthews.

    Pick change; previously Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB

  26. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Steen, G, Alabama
    Jim Irsay took to Twitter earlier in the season and demanded better protection for Andrew Luck. I suppose that means the Colts will drafting a lineman or two early.

  27. New Orleans Saints: Corey Moore, S, Georgia
    Here’s a safety to play next to Kenny Vaccaro in the future. Malcolm Jenkins, who has disappointed, will be a free agent in March.

  28. New England Patriots: DaQuan Jones, NT, Penn State
    Perhaps this is an overreaction pick, but Vince Wilfork will find it difficult to come back from a torn Achilles at his size and age.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech
    The 49ers have four Day 2 selections, so they can make a luxury pick like this. Logan Thomas has tons of potential. Maybe Jim Harbaugh can work his magic with him and then flip him for a better draft choice a couple of years later (much like the Patriots with Ryan Mallett, who was also a third-rounder).

  30. Denver Broncos: Dri Archer, RB/WR, Kent State
    The Broncos have a dynamic offense, but one thing they don’t have is a Darren Sproles-type back coming out of the backfield. Dri Archer, who could run a high 4.2 at the Combine, could fill that role.

  31. Minnesota Vikings: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
    Greg Jennings has been a huge disappointment in Minnesota, so the Vikings may draft a receiver relatively early.

    Pick change; previously Jarvis Landry, WR

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU
    The Chiefs need another outside receiver to start across from Dwayne Bowe.

    Pick change; previously Jared Abbrederis, WR
