  1. Tennessee Titans: Josue Matias, G, Florida State
    The Titans need to protect their new quarterback. There’s been speculation that the disappointing Andy Levitre will be cut this offseason.

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Arie Kouandjio, G, Alabama
    The Buccaneers may also upgrade the interior of their offensive line. They had major problems blocking last year, so they can’t have that happen again with a rookie quarterback under center.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Paul Dawson, LB, TCU
    Miles Burris is perhaps the worst starting linebacker in the NFL. The Raiders desperately need an upgrade in the middle of their defense.

    Pick change; previously Eric Kendricks, ILB

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
    Marcedes Lewis has been a huge disappointment since signing his contract, so the Jaguars need an upgrade. Lewis, 31 right after the 2015 NFL Draft, will be due nearly $7 million in the final season of his contract, so Jacksonville may cut him this offseason.



  5. New York Jets: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
    As I wrote in Round 1, the Jets may have to take a chance on Brett Hundley at this spot if they don’t land one of the top two quarterbacks. They don’t really have a choice.

  6. Washington Redskins: Malcom Brown, DT, Texas
    The Redskins could look into adding to their defensive line. Jason Hatcher is just a short-term rental, while Jarvis Jenkins is set to hit free agency this March.

    Pick change; previously Arik Armstead, DE/DT

  7. Chicago Bears: Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington
    The Bears need help on all three levels of their defense. They already took a safety, so here’s their chance to grab a linebacker. That group definitely needs an injection of talent, especially with Lance Briggs likely to leave.

    Pick change; previously Paul Dawson, LB

  8. New York Giants: Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana
    I don’t think the Giants will go out of their way to take a running back, but Tevin Coleman is too good to pass up. He could complement Andre Williams well, as the oft-injured Rashad Jennings can’t be trusted.

  9. St. Louis Rams: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    Brian Quick looked good prior to his injury, and both Kenny Britt and Stedman Bailey have had their moments in the second half of the season, but the Rams lack a true No. 1 receiver, which is something they can obtain with this selection.

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State
    With the frequently injured Sean Weatherspoon hitting free agency, the Falcons will be desperate to upgrade the interior of their defense.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
    Johnny Manziel is more interested in rolling $20s and partying like some normal college kid than being a professional quarterback. He put on the worst quarterbacking performance I have ever seen against the Bengals, so it’s unlikely that he’ll get another shot because he’s an utter embarrassment. Cleveland has to find a new signal-caller.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE/OLB, UCLA
    Here’s some more defensive help for the Saints, who need all the upgrades they can get their hands on. This includes a better edge rusher.

    Pick change; previously Denzel Perryman, ILB



  13. Minnesota Vikings: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    The Vikings will definitely think about bringing in another receiver to both serve as a competition for apparent bust Cordarrelle Patterson and be a successor for Greg Jennings.

    Pick change; previously T.J. Yeldon, RB

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Devin Funchess, TE, Michigan
    Vernon Davis has just one year left on his contract, so he won’t be around in San Francisco much longer. Vance McDonald, meanwhile, has been a disappointment. The 49ers may want to use a selection on a tight end.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Arik Armstead, DE/DT, Oregon
    Jared Odrick played so well this year that he’ll command lots of money in free agency this upcoming spring (go here for our NFL Free Agent Rankings. The Dolphins may have to find a new defensive tackle as a consequence.

    Pick change; previously Alex Carter, CB

  16. San Diego Chargers: Ellis McCarthy, NT, UCLA
    San Diego doesn’t have a quality nose tackle, which would explain why the team was just mediocre against the run.



  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Jeremiah Putasi, OT, Utah
    The Chiefs had pass protection issues this past season – only six teams surrendered more sacks – and I doubt Andy Reid will pass on an offensive lineman in the first couple of rounds.

    Pick change; previously A.J. Cann, G

  18. Buffalo Bills: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    The Bills may want to look into addressing the running back position, which is what I have happening in my 2016 NFL Mock Draft. Fred Jackson is done, C.J. Spiller is finished in Buffalo, and Bryce Brown has not lived up to expectations.

    Pick change; previously Duke Johnson, RB

  19. Houston Texans: Denzel Perryman, LB, Miami
    The Texans really need help in the interior of their defense, as Brian Cushing is not expected back with the team next year unless he takes a big pay cut.

    Pick change; previously Jaquiski Tartt, S

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford
    Nate Allen has been a huge liability, as he was responsible for Arizona’s game-winning touchdown in the middle of the season. The Eagles are in desperate need of an upgrade at safety.

    Pick change; previously Gerod Holliman, S



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Corey Robinson, OT, South Carolina
    The Bengals will be interested in a left tackle prospect in the first couple of rounds. Andrew Whitworth, a 33-year-old entering his contract season, can be moved inside to guard to fill a need there.

  22. Detroit Lions: A.J. Cann, G, South Carolina
    The Lions are desperate for multiple upgrades on the offensive line; the offense sputtered this past season because the unit couldn’t protect Matthew Stafford.

    Pick change; previously Mario Edwards, DT

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
    Marcus Peters was dismissed from the team this past season. The Cardinals have taken chances on troubled players before, so perhaps they’d give Peters a shot. Peters, who has top-15 talent, could fill in for Antonio Cromartie if the stud corner isn’t re-signed.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Hauoli Kikaha, DE/OLB, Washington
    The Steelers hate drafting edge rushers early on because of scheme transition issues, but they really need to upgrade their pass rush. It was better at the end of the season, but Pittsburgh can’t count on James Harrison playing well forever.

    Pick change; previously Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE/OLB



  25. Carolina Panthers: Rashad Greene, WR, Florida State
    The Panthers likely will select the top available player from the tackle or receiver position in the first few rounds. Those are their two big areas of need. They have to find someone to draw attention away from Kelvin Benjamin. Jaelen Strong is a steal here. I wanted to slot him earlier, but he just fell out of circumstance.

    Pick change; previously Jaelen Strong, WR

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    Steve Smith looked done in 2013, but he actually tried this past season, and it paid off for Baltimore. However, Steve Smith won’t last much longer, while Torrey Smith is an impending free agent, so the Ravens will have to find a new receiver.

  27. Denver Broncos: Tre Jackson, G, Florida State
    Here’s more offensive line help for the Broncos, who need to upgrade the guard position in addition to the center spot if Orlando Franklin leaves via free agency.

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Mario Edwards, DE/DT, Florida State
    Dallas’ defense was much better than anyone anticipated, but it was exposed during a stretch a few weeks ago. There are still some weaknesses that need to be addressed – particularly in the interior of the defensive line, where Nick Hayden needs to be upgraded.

    Pick change; previously Carl Davis, DT

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    The Colts have to address the running back position. Trent Richardson is garbage, while Ahmad Bradshaw can’t be relied upon to stay healthy.

    Pick change; previously Ameer Abdullah, RB

  30. Green Bay Packers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    The Packers have three key cornerbacks hitting free agency by next March. They’ll have to replenish depth at the position and find a future starter.

    Pick change; previously Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB

  31. New England Patriots: Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State
    There currently isn’t a huge need for a defensive tackle, but Vince Wilfork, Chris Jones and Sealver Siliga will all be heading into their contract years by the 2016 season, so this is a selection for the future.

    Pick change; previously Rashad Greene, WR

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Christian Covington, DT, Rice
    The Seahawks are really missing Brandon Mebane. They need some help at defensive tackle, even once Mebane returns from his hamstring injury next year.
