  1. Tennessee Titans: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh
    It’s customary for teams to match their new quarterback with another upgrade on offense, whether that’s a receiver or a blocker. The Titans need the latter, as Michael Roos’ retirement has creating a big hole at right tackle.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    As with the Titans, the Buccaneers need some help on the offensive line. They’d love to get their hands on a left tackle, but none who fit the range are available. That’s fine, because an upgrade at guard must be acquired as well.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    I had Kevin White going to the Raiders at No. 4 overall in a previous 2015 NFL Mock Draft. The Raiders could still take him, but if they don’t, they’ll have to look for a receiver with their next pick, as Derek Carr needs a primary target.

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Byron Jones, CB, Connecticut
    The Jaguars signed Davon House to a terrible deal – check the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades page for details – but they still could use another cornerback, and Byron Jones has the size Gus Bradley likes.

    And yes, Byron Jones could go this early. In fact, he could be chosen in the first round. He already had good tape, so he’s not just a workout warrior. The athleticism he displayed at the NFL Combine could push him into Thursday.



  5. New York Jets: Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana
    Chris Johnson hit free agency after the Jets declined his option. Not like he was going to play much anyway if he returned. The Jets may want to bring in another running back to go with Chris Ivory.

  6. Washington Redskins: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    The Redskins obviously need to make multiple upgrades to their woeful secondary. Help is needed at both corner and safety, so Washington can take the best player available at either position.

  7. Chicago Bears: Arik Armstead, DE/DT, Oregon
    The Bears went offense in the first round, so they’ll have to begin acquiring pieces for their new 3-4 defense on Day 2. They can start by addressing the defensive line, as they don’t have much in terms of a defensive end.

    Pick change; previously P.J. Williams, CB

  8. New York Giants: Eli Harold, DE/OLB, Virginia
    General manager Jerry Reese is looking for pass-rushers. He tried to sign Brandon Graham a couple of weeks ago, so he may take a defensive end in the first couple of rounds of the 2015 NFL Draft.

  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: Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
    I don’t think the Falcons will go out of their way to draft a running back, but they could see Ameer Abdullah as the best player available at this juncture. It’s not like Atlanta has anything solid at the position.

    Pick change; previously Maxx Williams, RB

  11. Cleveland Browns: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    The Browns’ big offensive signing this offseason was Dwayne Bowe, who isn’t a very good player. It’s safe to say that the team needs a big upgrade at the receiver position.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Denzel Perryman, LB, Miami
    More upgrades for the Saints’ defense. The team needs a major boost in the middle of its stop unit, as Curtis Lofton was a major disappointment for them.



  13. Minnesota Vikings: Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington
    Chad Greenway has regressed in the past couple of years, so it wouldn’t hurt the Vikings if they found another linebacker to go along with Anthony Barr and Gerald Hodges. Shaq Thompson is overrated; the media has him in the first round, but teams rate him as a second-round prospect. However, he fits the range at this pick.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson
    The 49ers are both inept and unfortunate. They said goodbye to Patrick Willis and Chris Borland this offseason, and now they have to find another inside linebacker to go along with the injured NaVorro Bowman.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest
    The Dolphins cut Cortland Finnegan, who was a huge liability last year. Now, they really have nothing outside of Brent Grimes at the cornerback position, as the players they drafted back in 2013 (Will Davis, Jamar Taylor) haven’t developed. And besides, Grimes, 32 in July, will have to be replaced soon.

  16. San Diego Chargers: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    Ryan Mathews has left for Philadelphia, while Branden Oliver cooled off toward the end of the season following a hot start. With Mathews gone, the Chargers will have to find someone to complement Oliver.

    Pick change; previously Arik Armstead, DE/DT



  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State
    Here’s some much-needed help for the interior of Kansas City’s defense, which took a beating last year in the wake of all the injuries. The inside linebacker position must be addressed.

  18. Buffalo Bills: Paul Dawson, LB, TCU
    The Bills lost a fantastic defensive play-maker when they shipped Kiko Alonso off to Philadelphia. They need a replacement in the midde of their defense.

  19. Houston Texans: Phillip Dorsett, WR, Miami
    The Texans lost Andre Johnson to the Colts, so they’ll need a No. 2 wideout across from DeAndre Hopkins. Phillip Dorsett has moved up an entire round after a tremendous Senior Bowl. He also looked good at the NFL Combine.

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    Another Oregon player for Chip Kelly. This one can replace Evan Mathis, who is on the trading block for some strange reason. Fisher could eventually move to tackle once Jason Peters retires.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Preston Smith, DE/OLB, Mississippi State
    The Bengals signed Michael Johnson to perhaps fix their pass-rushing woes, but he could bust, given how awful he was for Tampa Bay last year. Here’s some insurance just in case bringing Johnson back doesn’t work out.

    Pick change; previously Carl Davis, DT

  22. Detroit Lions: Carl Davis, DT, Iowa
    The Lions lost both Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley this offseason, so they’re in desperate need for help on the defensive line. They’ll have to address the position in the first two rounds this April.

    Pick change; previously Ameer Abdullah, RB

  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 the departed Antonio Cromartie.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    Cortez Allen was so bad against the Colts that he was actually trending on Twitter. Brice McCain is gone. Ike Taylor, meanwhile, was miserable in his return from injury. The Steelers are in desperate need of help at the cornerback position, and they’re getting a prospect who fits their scheme well.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    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.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Devin Funchess, TE, Michigan
    The Ravens already lost Owen Daniels this offseason, and no one is sure if Dennis Pitta will be able to play this year, so the front office could be targeting a tight end early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  27. Denver Broncos: Arie Kouandjio, G, Alabama
    The Broncos lost Orlando Franklin to the rival Chargers this offseason, so they’ll need to address the offensive line early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Damarious Randall, S

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Mario Edwards, DE/DT, Florida State
    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.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Quinten Rollins, CB, Miami of Ohio
    Greg Toler performed well in the playoffs, but the Colts could use a better No. 2 corner. Quinten Rollins is another player whose stock is rising.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Kwon Alexander, LB, LSU
    There was utter outrage from Packer fans when I didn’t mock an inside linebacker to them in a recent update. The position will have to be addressed, as Clay Matthews playing there is just a temporary solution.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB, LSU
    The Seahawks were able to re-sign Cliff Avril to a 4-year deal back in December, but they could still add an edge rusher for the future, especially if they are able to obtain someone who fits their system so perfectly.

  32. New England Patriots: Josue Matias, G, Florida State
    The Patriots have to improve their offensive line, especially the interior. Bill Belichick spent a selection last year on a Florida State blocker, so perhaps he’ll add another one.
