  1. Buffalo Bills: Derron Smith, S, Fresno State
    Da’Norris Searcy played well in place of Jairus Byrd this past season, but now Searcy Lannister, like Byrd last spring, happens to be a free agent.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    Here’s some more secondary help for the Titans, who couldn’t stop the pass whatsoever in 2014.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jesse James, TE, Penn State
    Marcedes Lewis will be released this offseason unless he takes a major pay cut. If he leaves, the Jaguars will have to spend a draft pick on a replacement.

  4. Oakland Raiders: D’Joun Smith, CB, Florida Atlantic
    The Raiders have a couple of cornerbacks set to hit free agency, so they could use some depth at the position.



  5. Washington Redskins: Joey Mbu, NT, Houston
    The Redskins may draft Danny Shelton at No. 5 overall because they need a nose tackle. If they don’t, look for them to take one later.

  6. New York Jets: Eric Rowe, CB/S, Utah
    The Jets obviously have to spend multiple draft selections on the cornerback position, given how little talent they have there.

  7. Denver Broncos: Jamil Douglas, G, Arizona State
    Here’s some more offensive line help for the Broncos. They’ll need to obtain a guard if Orlando Franklin leaves via free agency.

  8. New York Giants: Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson
    Johnathan Hankins was a stud this past season, but he had very little help next to him. Mike Patterson looked done, so the Giants will have to address this position via free agency or the draft.

  9. St. Louis Rams: Ibraheim Campbell, S, Northwestern
    The Rams already addressed their major needs (outside of the quarterback position), so they may look to add to their secondary depth, which needs to be bolstered.

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Daryl Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    The Atlanta tackles played well going down the stretch, but the team could still add depth to the position. The Falcons will need insurance in case injuries strike again.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Taiwan Jones, ILB, Michigan State
    The Browns can add an inside linebacker to go along with the beautiful new logo they’ve introduced. They’ll need a future starter at the position with Karlos Dansby turning 34 in the middle of the 2015 season.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Jordan Richards, S, Stanford
    The Saints need to think about adding some insurance at safety, just in case Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro never play up to potential.



  13. Minnesota Vikings: David Cobb, RB, Minnesota
    The Vikings could address the running back position much earlier than this if Adrian Peterson leaves. They need to find someone to complement Jerrick McKinnon.

  14. Miami Dolphins: Lynden Trail, DE/DT, Norfolk State
    The Dolphins could lose Jared Odrick in free agency this offseason, or perhaps the next one, if they franchise him, so here’s a possible replacement.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Deontay Greenberry, WR, Houston
    The 49ers are really hurting at the receiver position, so it won’t be shocking at all if they spend multiple selections on upgrades.

  16. Houston Texans: Adam Gotsis, DE/DT, Georgia Tech
    The Texans lost Antonio Smith to the Raiders in free agency last offseason and never really properly replaced him. Here’s a possible substitute.



  17. San Diego Chargers: Zach Hodges, DE/OLB, Harvard
    The Chargers may want to add some pass-rushing depth in the wake of Jarret Johnson’s retirement. Help is needed behind Melvin Ingram and Jerry Attaochu.

  18. Kansas City Chiefs: Shaquille Mason, G, Georgia Tech
    Andy Reid is obsessed with drafting offensive linemen, so he’ll undoubtedly add a couple, given that his blocking unit performed poorly for the most part last season.

  19. Buffalo Bills: Kaleb Eulls, DT, Mississippi State
    The Bills could stand to add some better depth on the defensive line. They have two strong starters in Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus, but the depth is lacking.

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Darren Waller, WR, Georgia Tech
    Riley Cooper won’t be around much longer, so the Eagles will need to add another receiver at some point this offseason.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland
    Marvin Jones will be back next year, but it wouldn’t hurt the Bengals if they added another receiving option in case there are more injuries.

  22. Detroit Lions: Josh Harper, WR, Fresno State
    Detroit could stand to add a stronger third receiver just in case Calvin Johnson gets hurt again next year.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Robert Myers, G/OT, Tennessee State
    Former first-round pick Jonathan Cooper has been a major bust. He barely played last year, and the two guards ahead of him didn’t do a very good job.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Andrew Donnal, OT, Iowa
    The Steelers signed Marcus Gilbert to a deal recently, but he hasn’t lived up to it. The front office could look for someone in the middle rounds to push him.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Kwon Alexander, OLB, LSU
    Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis are studs, but Carolina could stand to find a third linebacker to complement the two Pro Bowlers.

  26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary
    It sounds like Vincent Jackson will be back next year, but he probably won’t be around for much longer after that. Here’s a potential future No. 2 receiver.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Lorenzo Doss, CB, Tulane
    The Cowboys addressed the safety position earlier in this mock draft, but they’ll need to obtain multiple defensive backs because they are really hurting in the secondary.

  28. Denver Broncos: Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama
    The Broncos are looking to bring in a new fullback this offseason. They have two fifth-round selections, so perhaps they’ll use one on a lead blocker.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: B.J. Finney, C, Kansas State
    The Colts haven’t addressed the offensive line just yet in this mock draft, but they could do so much earlier than this. They need multiple upgrades up front.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Terrance Magee, RB, LSU
    The Packers are looking to bring in a running back to serve as a complement to Eddie Lacy. They’ll probably spend a third-, fourth- or fifth-round pick on one.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas
    The Seahawks have some linebackers about to hit free agency, including former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith. Depth will be needed at this position.

  32. New England Patriots: Tyler Kroft, TE, Rutgers
    The Patriots could use another tight end just in case Rob Gronkowski gets hurt again, and I’m sure Bill Belichick wouldn’t mind drafting another Rutgers prospect.
