  1. Tennessee Titans: Chris Hackett, S, TCU
    Here’s some much-needed secondary help for the Titans, who couldn’t stop the pass whatsoever in 2014. Both the safety and cornerback positions will need to be addressed.

    Pick change; previously James Sample, S

  2. New England Patriots: Doran Grant, CB, Ohio State
    The Patriots lost Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, so reinforcements are needed in the secondary.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Buck Allen, RB, USC
    I gave the Raiders a poor grade for signing Trent Richardson, but the move won’t keep them from picking a running back in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Artis-Payne, RB

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford
    The Jaguars should look at the secondary again, as all they did at the safety position this offseason was sign Sergio Brown.



  5. New York Jets: Gerod Holliman, S, Louisville
    The Jets managed to address their secondary this offseason, but they could add one more defensive back in the middle rounds for depth purposes.

    Pick change; previously Derron Smith, S

  6. Washington Redskins: Daryl Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    The Redskins can’t go too deep into the draft without addressing their anemic offensive front. They have to make sure Robert Griffin stays healthy for a change.

    Pick change; previously Donovan Smith, OT

  7. Chicago Bears: Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB, Louisville
    The Bears signed Pernell McPhee this offseason, but it wouldn’t hurt if they spent a mid-round selection on some depth at outside linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Gerod Holliman, S

  8. Atlanta Falcons: Durell Eskridge, S, Syracuse
    The Falcons had issues at the safety position this past season, so they could spend a Round 2-4 selection on some competition at the position.

  9. New York Giants: Christian Covington, DT, Rice
    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 the draft.

  10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Anthony Chickillo, DE, Miami
    The Buccaneers paid big money to Michael Johnson last offseason, but he was so awful that he was released after one year. Here’s a possible upgrade at defensive end.

    Pick change; previously Trey Flowers, DE

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary
    The Vikings traded for Mike Wallace, but if they watched him abandon his teammates, they know that they need some sort of insurance policy.

  12. Cleveland Browns: Lynden Trail, DE/DT, Norfolk State
    Here’s more help for the Browns up front. They really need to make sure they can stop the run, or they aren’t beating the Steelers (Le’Veon Bell), Bengals (Jeremy Hill) or Ravens (Justin Forsett).

    Pick change; previously Henry Anderson, DE/DT



  13. Seattle Seahawks: Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
    The Seahawks traded away their starting center to Seattle and managed to acquire this pick in the process. It makes sense that they’d find a replacement for Max Unger here.

  14. Philadelphia Eagles: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford
    Here’s another receiver for the Eagles. Perhaps Chip Kelly would take someone else he’s familiar with.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Cam Thomas, CB, Western Kentucky
    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.

    Pick change; previously Josh Shaw, CB

  16. Cleveland Browns: Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State
    The Browns signed Josh McCown to be their short-term solution at quarterback. They obviously need to draft someone for the long haul, as Johnny Manziel is unreliable.



  17. Houston Texans: Marcus Hardison, DE/DT, Arizona State
    The Texans never properly replaced Antonio Smith on the defensive line, so here’s a potential solution.

    Pick change; previously Chris Hackett, S

  18. San Diego Chargers: Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB, LSU
    The Chargers may want to add another pass-rusher with Dwight Freeney no longer on the roster.

    Pick change; previously Za’Darius Smith, DE/OLB

  19. Kansas City Chiefs: Davis Tull, DE/OLB, UT-Chattanooga
    Justin Houston is a free agent next offseason. It’s hard to imagine the Chiefs letting him get away, but it might be too expensive for Kansas City to keep both him and Tamba Hali. If one goes, depth will be needed.

  20. St. Louis Rams: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn
    The Rams signed Nick Fairley this offseason, but that doesn’t seem like a long-term addition. Here’s some depth for the long haul.



  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. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State
    The Steelers have had success with a Michigan State running back, so why not draft another? Jeremy Langford is great in terms of pass protection, which is what Pittsburgh missed most when Le’Veon Bell went down.

  23. Baltimore Ravens: Ibraheim Campbell, S, Northwestern
    The Ravens have to make a couple of additions to their secondary, which was torched quite often in 2014.

  24. Arizona Cardinals: Mitch Morse, C/G, Missouri
    The Cardinals parted ways with Lyle Sendlein this offseason, so they’ll need to do something about the center position.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Donovan Smith, OT, Penn State
    It shouldn’t surprise anyone if the Panthers double up on the tackle position. Both of their tackles were putrid last year.

    Pick change; previously Daryl Williams, OT

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Trey Flowers, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    The Ravens lost Pernell McPhee to free agency this offseason, so they’ll need to find some pass-rushing depth in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Obum Gwachum, DE

  27. 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.

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno 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: Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Auburn
    The Colts signed Frank Gore – check out my grade in the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades page – but he’s just a short-term solution. A long-term option is needed.

    Pick change; previously Kurtis Drummond, S

  30. Green Bay Packers: Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi State
    The Packers want to bring in a running back to ease Eddie Lacy’s workload, and there should be plenty of good ones available in Rounds 3-4.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas
    The Seahawks lost their former Super Bowl MVP in free agency to the Raiders. 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.

  33. San Francisco 49ers: Sean Hickey, OT/G, Syracuse
    The guard position is a big need for San Francisco in the wake of Mike Iupati’s departure. Alex Boone entering his contract season doesn’t make things any better.

    Pick change; previously Lynden Trail, DE/DT

  34. Denver Broncos: Ellis McCarthy, NT, UCLA
    The Broncos lost Terrance Knighton to free agency, though they didn’t exactly push hard to keep him. They need a solution at nose tackle though.

  35. Seattle Seahawks: Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
    The Seahawks lost a couple members of their secondary this offseason, so they could look to replenish depth in the middle rounds.

  36. Cincinnati Bengals: Nick O’Leary, TE, Florida State
    Jermaine Gresham is a free agent, so the Bengals may want to add another tight end.

  37. Baltimore Ravens: Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Stanford
    The Ravens acquired a mid-round pick for Haloti Ngata, so they might as well find a potential replacement for him here.

    Pick change; previously Ray Drew, DE/DT
