  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    Gerald McCoy is the only Buccaneer putting consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks. That needs to change, especially considering the other quarterbacks in the division.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Hauoli Kikaha, DE/OLB, Washington
    The Titans have to find tons of defensive help. One major need in particular is a pass-rushing upgrade because Kamerion Wimbley is not getting the job done.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Cedric Ogbuhei, OT, Texas A&M
    Blake Bortles was terrible as a rookie, but perhaps he’ll stop throwing tons of interceptions if he has better protection. The Jaguars need to improve their right tackle situation.

    Cedric Ogbuhei falls to the third round because he tore his ACL. He was a late-first, early-second-round prospect to begin with.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Gerod Holliman, S, Louisville
    Charles Woodson said he’s coming back next year, but his play slipped late in 2014. A long-term solution is needed at one of the safety positions.



  5. Washington Redskins: Durell Eskridge, S, Syracuse
    The issues the Redskins have in their secondary are pretty well documented. They were counting on Ryan Clark this past year, which proved to be disastrous because the former Steeler is way past his prime.

  6. New York Jets: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    How pissed will Rex Ryan be if the Jets finally add some talented corners after completely ignoring the position last offseason, and he’s not there anymore? At least he’ll be able to get revenge twice per year. Go here for my grade for the Bills hiring Rex Ryan.

    Pick change; previously Steve Nelson, CB

  7. Chicago Bears: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
    Kyle Fuller looked great back when he was healthy – he completely shut down Kelvin Benjamin and other solid receivers – but the Bears will need another corner with Charles Tillman likely done.

  8. St. Louis Rams: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Rams. They really need help at center.

  9. Atlanta Falcons: Nick O’Leary, TE, Florida State
    The Falcons missed Tony Gonzalez this year. It would’ve helped Matt Ryan if he had a solid intermediate target to throw to.

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

  11. New Orleans Saints: Steve Nelson, CB, Oregon State
    Another cornerback is definitely a possibility. The team desperately has to upgrade its pass defense, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone if the Saints double up on corners.

    Pick change; previously Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB

  12. Minnesota Vikings: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    Adrian Peterson may never play for the Vikings again, so Minnesota may want to find a new running back. Jerick McKinnon looked good, but he can’t handle the load on his own, while Matt Asiata is just a short-yardage specialist who will be entering free agency.

    Pick change; previously Jay Ajayi, RB



  13. Cleveland Browns: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford
    Considering the state of the Browns’ receiving corps, I could see them doubling up on the position this April.

    FALCONS’ PICK: This would be the selection Atlanta acquired via the first-round trade. If the Falcons have this choice, I think they’d take a second pass-rusher, perhaps Danielle Hunter (LSU) or Trey Flowers (Arkansas).

  14. Miami Dolphins: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    The Dolphins fixed the tackle position last offseason. Now, they have to focus on the interior of the offensive line, which is in pretty bad shape.

    Pick change; previously Chris Hackett, S

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame
    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.

  16. Kansas City Chiefs: Justin Hardy, WR, East Carolina
    It’s amazing that the Chiefs went the entire year without having any of their receivers score a single touchdown. Alex Smith was partly to blame, but the receiving corps was just abysmal.

    Pick change; previously Laken Tomlinson, G



  17. Buffalo Bills: Chris Hackett, S, TCU
    The Bills had Da’Norris Searcy step in admirably as a replacement for the New Orleans-bound Jairus Byrd, but Searcy Lannister is now a free agent as well.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Harris, S

  18. Houston Texans: Corey Robinson, OT, South Carolina
    The Texans want to upgrade the right tackle position, as Derek Newton has not been getting the job done.

    Pick change; previously Phillip Dorsett, WR

  19. San Diego Chargers: Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State
    The Chargers could use some help at receiver, as Malcom Floyd will be 34 next season, while Eddie Royal is an impending free agent.

    Pick change; previously Justin Hardy, WR

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    Another Oregon player for Chip Kelly. This one can upgrade Todd Herremans at right guard and then move to tackle once Jason Peters retires.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Sean Hickey, OT/G, Syracuse
    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.

    Pick change; previously Carl Davis, DT

  22. Arizona Cardinals: Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
    Andre Ellington can’t carry the load by himself, and the Cardinals need a new No. 2 running back anyway.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Derron Smith, S, Fresno State
    More help for Pittsburgh’s anemic secondary. The Steelers signed Michael Mitchell this offseason, but he hasn’t met expectations. He was torched in the Indianapolis game along with Cortez Allen, and has played poorly in most other games, though he blamed it on an injury.

  24. Detroit Lions: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State
    Reggie Bush won’t be around much longer, so the Lions will need to find someone to split the load with Joique Bell.

    Pick change; previously Buck Allen, RB



  25. Carolina Panthers: Josh Harper, WR, Fresno State
    The Panthers are so desperate at the receiver position that they could double up during the draft.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
    The Ravens are in such dire need of cornerback help that they may double dip at the position early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn
    Dallas’ defense was much better than anyone anticipated, but it was exposed during a stretch during the latter part of the season. 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.

  28. Denver Broncos: Shaquille Mason, G, Georgia Tech
    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.

    Pick change; previously John Miller, G

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Trey Flowers, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    The Colts were able to get a pass rush out of Jonathan Newsome, but the other edge rushers struggled for the most part.

    Pick change; previously Quinten Rollins, CB

  30. Green Bay Packers: Jacoby Glenn, CB, Central Florida
    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.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB, LSU
    The Seahawks had absolutely no pass rush once Cliff Avril left the Super Bowl with a concussion. They need pass-rushing depth.

    Pick change; previously Sean Hickey, OT

  32. New England Patriots: D.J. Humphries, OT/G, Florida
    Bill Belichick loves versatile offensive linemen, and he’s definitely not opposed to taking players from Florida, so this selection makes a ton of sense. Belichick could spend multiple picks to fortify his front line.
