  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Craig Loston, S, LSU
    There are countless reasons why the Jaguars suck. Terrible safety play is just one of them.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Lamarcus Joyner, S

  2. New York Jets: Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss
    Here’s a weapon for Geno Smith, as Santonio Holmes won’t be around much longer.

    Pick change; previously Allen Robinson, WR

  3. Houston Texans: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    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 (did not intend that) is a mirage.

    Pick change; previously Stephen Morris, QB

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Will Sutton, DE/DT, Arizona State
    Here’s more front seven help, as the Falcons need to concentrate on bolstering their pass rush this offseason.

    Pick change; previously Jared Abbrederis, WR



  5. Minnesota Vikings: Zack Martin, G/OT, Notre Dame
    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.

    Pick change; previously David Yankey, G/OT

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

  7. Oakland Raiders: Calvin Barnett, DT, Oklahoma State
    The Raiders have no interior pass rush. Acquiring a boost in that area would really help the defense.

    Pick change; previously Will Sutton, DE/DT

  8. New York Giants: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
    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 Darqueze Dennard, CB

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. St. Louis Rams: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
    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 A.J. McCarron, QB

  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.



  13. San Francisco 49ers: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
    Anquan Boldin and Mario Manningham will both be free agents next March. The 49ers need a speed receiver to complement Michael Crabtree.

    Pick change; previously Daniel McCullers, NT

  14. San Diego Chargers: Taylor Hart, DE/DT, Oregon
    The Chargers have a solid starting front line on defense, but they don’t have much depth.

    Pick change; previously Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT

  15. Cleveland Browns: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
    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.

    Pick change; previously Donte Moncrief, WR

  16. Miami Dolphins: Damian Swann, CB, Georgia
    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. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Chicago Bears: David Fales, QB, San Jose State
    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 Aaron Murray, QB



  21. Dallas Cowboys: Anthony Steen, G, Alabama
    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.

    Pick change; previously Zack Martin, G

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. Detroit Lions: Bene Benwikere, CB, San Jose State
    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 Damian Swann, CB



  25. 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.

    Pick change; previously Logan Thomas, QB

  26. Carolina Panthers: De’Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
    Cam Newton is an inconsistent passer. He could really benefit from a potent, pass-catching weapon coming out of the backfield.

    Pick change; previously Josh Huff, WR

  27. Indianapolis Colts: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
    I mocked Datone Jones to the Colts for a while in the 2013 NFL Draft because they need a pass-rushing presence up front. That’s still a hole they have to fill, as we learned by watching Indianapolis fail to pressure Case Keenum a couple of Sunday nights ago.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Steen, G

  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. 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.

  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: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
    There was some speculation that Jared Allen would be dealt prior to the trade deadline, but that never happened. Allen is an impending free agent who will likely go elsewhere. If so, Minnesota will have to fix bolster its pass rush.

    Pick change; previously Odell Beckham, WR

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
    The Chiefs need another outside receiver to start across from Dwayne Bowe.

    Pick change; previously Jarvis Landry, WR
