  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: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    The Buccaneers need help at left tackle, as Anthony Collins is gone after just one awful season. Teams usually grab an offensive weapon or a blocker after choosing a franchise quarterback, so that’s what Tampa is doing here.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio 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: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    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.

    Pick change; previously Tevin Coleman, RB

  6. Washington Redskins: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest
    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 need a starting defensive end to go along with Ray McDonald.

  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: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
    The Falcons signed a couple of cheap tight ends this offseason, but that won’t preclude them from spending their second-round pick on an upgrade at the position. Matt Ryan needs a reliable intermediate target, and Kyle Shanahan loves utilizing tight ends in his offense.

    Pick change; previously Ameer Abdullah, RB

  11. Cleveland Browns: Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    The Browns need an offensive weapon, whether it’s at wide receiver or tight end. They signed a couple of wideouts this offseason, but neither Dwayne Bowe nor Brian Hartline is anywhere close to being a No. 1 option.

    Pick change; previously Maxx Williams, TE

  12. New Orleans Saints: Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson
    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: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    The 49ers are really hurting for receiving help. Michael Crabtree, a huge disappointment this past year, will probably be gone this offseason. Anquan Boldin played well, but he can’t possibly perform at a high level much longer. Stevie Johnson proved to be a bust.

    Pick change; previously Nelson Agholor, WR

  15. Miami Dolphins: Denzel Perryman, LB, Miami
    The Dolphins have shown interest in several linebackers during the pre-draft process, and it’s easy to understand why. They have just one viable three-down linebacker on the roster in Jelani Jenkins. Koa Misi is a solid, two-down defender, but Miami has to find a third linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Laken Tomlinson, G

  16. San Diego Chargers: Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana
    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 a new primary running back.

    Pick change; previously T.J. Yeldon, RB



  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    The cornerback position isn’t as big of a need for Kansas City as some make it out to be, but better depth is definitely must at the position.

    Pick change; previously Denzel Perryman, WR

  18. Buffalo Bills: Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State
    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.

    Pick change; previously Paul Dawson, LB

  19. Houston Texans: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    The Texans managed to re-sign right tackle Derek Newton this offseason, but the offensive line still needs to be addressed. Help is needed on the interior.

    Pick change; previously Sammie Coates, WR

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Eric Rowe, CB/S, Utah
    Eric Rowe, whose stock has risen lately, is the type of impressive, tall athlete Chip Kelly likes having in his defense. The Eagles are obviously looking for a cornerback to help their putrid secondary.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Carl Davis, DT, Iowa
    Domata Peko didn’t play well this past year, so the Bengals may want to consider finding some help for the interior of their defensive line.

  22. Detroit Lions: Mario Edwards, DE/DT, Florida State
    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.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
    Andre Ellington can’t carry the load by himself, and the Cardinals need a new No. 2 running back anyway.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Peters, CB

  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: 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.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State
    Perhaps I dropped P.J. Williams down a round too far last week following his DUI arrest, but there’s no doubt that he hurt his draft stock. The Ravens have taken chances on troubled players before, so maybe they’ll give Williams a chance to fill a big need for them.

    Pick change; previously Devin Funchess, TE

  27. Denver Broncos: Paul Dawson, LB, TCU
    The linebacker position was already an issue for the Broncos prior to this offseason, but now they are moving to a 3-4 scheme. They need help there, so they could spend an early selection on the position.

    Pick change; previously Benardrick McKinney, LB

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Damarious Randall, S, Arizona State
    The Cowboys have major issues in their secondary, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone if they spend multiple picks on upgrades.

  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: Xavier Cooper, DE/DT, Washington State
    The Packers managed to re-sign both B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion – check the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades here – but they still need to address the defensive line at the five-technique position.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Ali Marpet, OT/G, Hobart
    The Seahawks could use some help on the offensive line to give Russell Wilson more time in the pocket. The rising Ali Marpet is a great fit for the blocking scheme.

  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.
