  1. Minnesota Vikings: John Miller, G, Louisville
    Charlie Johnson is gone, so the Vikings may want to bring someone in to compete for the starting left guard spot.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Za’Darius Smith, DE/OLB, Kentucky
    The Titans managed to sign Brian Orakpo, but they could stand to add another edge rusher, especially considering how fragile Orakpo has been in recent years.

    Pick change; previously Cam Thomas, CB

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jamil Douglas, G, Arizona State
    The Jaguars addressed the tackle position in free agency with Jermey Parnell. They’ll have to bolster the guard position as well.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    The Raiders had a couple of cornerbacks hit free agency, so they could use some depth at the position.



  5. Washington Redskins: Joey Mbu, NT, Houston
    The Redskins signed Terrance Knighton recently, but that was just a 1-year pact. Here’s some insurance in case he doesn’t pan out.

  6. Chicago Bears: Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    Jay Cutler will be kept around next season, but the Bears obviously need to obtain a long-term solution – mostly a quarterback who actually gives a damn.

    Pick change; previously Xavier Williams, NT

  7. Denver Broncos: Shaquille Mason, G, Georgia Tech
    The Broncos lost Orlando Franklin to the rival Chargers this offseason, so they’ll need to address the offensive line at some point during the 2015 NFL Draft.

  8. New York Giants: Derron Smith, S, Fresno State
    New York’s top three safeties all had expiring contracts. Antrel Rolle signed with the Bears, so a replacement is needed for him.

    Pick change; previously Clayton Geathers, S

  9. Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Richards, S, Stanford
    The Eagles will have to spend multiple picks on defensive backs, including one on a safety. The team needs help next to Malcolm Jenkins.

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Deontay Greenberry, WR, Houston
    The Falcons lost Harry Douglas this offseason, and they won’t have Roddy White around much longer.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Mike Hull, ILB, Penn 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.

    Pick change; previously Ramik Wilson, ILB

  12. New Orleans Saints: Tony Washington, DE/OLB, Oregon
    This is much later than I wanted to slot an edge rusher for the Saints, who desperately have to improve their ability to get to the quarterback.



  13. Miami Dolphins: Rakeem Nunez-Roches, DT, Southern Miss
    The Dolphins signed Ndamukong Suh, but lost Randy Starks and Jared Odrick, so they could stand to add a defensive tackle.

    Pick change; previously Kaleb Eulls, DT

  14. Miami Dolphins: Andy Gallik, C, Boston College
    The center position has to be upgraded. Samson Satele did not play well at all last year.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Zach Hodges, DE/OLB, Harvard
    Aldon Smith is someone who hasn’t left the 49ers this offseason, but he won’t be around much longer if he gets into trouble again. Here’s some depth at outside linebacker.

  16. Houston Texans: Cody Riggs, CB, Notre Dame
    The Texans could use some depth at corner, as they were in trouble last year when some of their starters went down.



  17. San Diego Chargers: Kevin White, CB, TCU
    Most teams are more than happy to add depth to their secondary in the middle rounds. The Chargers actually need to do that.

    Pick change; previously JaCorey Shepherd, CB

  18. New Orleans Saints: Clayton Geathers, S, Central Florida
    The Saints need to think about adding some insurance at safety, just in case Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro never play up to potential.

    Pick change; previously Xzavier Dixon, DE/OLB

  19. Buffalo Bills: Xzavier Dixon, DE/OLB, Alabama
    The Bills managed to keep Jerry Hughes, but they still need an edge rusher for depth purposes.

    Pick change; previously Geneo Grissom, DE/OLB

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Mark Glowinski, G, West Virginia
    It’s been rumored that the Eagles want to trade Evan Mathis. That doesn’t make sense, given that Mathis is one of the top guards in the NFL, but nothing Chip Kelly has done this offseason has been very logical.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Ben Heeney, LB, Kansas
    The Bengals brought in A.J. Hawk for linebacking depth, but he’s obviously not much more than a short-term option, if that.

    Pick change; previously Taiwan Jones, LB

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Robert Myers, G/OT, Tennessee State
    The Ravens don’t have much depth on the interior of their offensive line, so they may use a mid-round selection on some help in that area.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Ramik Wilson, ILB, Georgia
    The Cardinals have had major issues covering tight ends the past two years. The main problem in this regard this past season was the inside linebacker position. Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington were both missed. Sean Weatherspoon signed with Arizona, but he can’t be counted on to stay healthy.

    Pick change; previously Ben Heeney, LB

  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: Troy Hill, CB, Oregon
    Some of Carolina’s young defensive backs played well down the stretch last year. The Panthers now need depth behind those players.

  26. Detroit Lions: Darren Waller, WR, Georgia Tech
    The Lions just acquired this pick for George Johnson. I think I’ll keep it the same for this update, as the Lions could use some receiving depth.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Lorenzo Doss, CB, Tulane
    The Cowboys addressed both defensive back positions earlier in this mock draft, but they could stand to add more to their 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: Adrian Amos, S, Penn State
    The Colts lost Sergio Brown in free agency, and they also got rid of LaRon Landry. They need some depth at the safety position.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Shaquille Riddick, DE/OLB, West Virginia
    Julius Peppers was a great addition to the Packers, but a long-term backup is needed behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry is needed once Peppers moves on.

    Pick change; previously Zach Wagenmann, DE/OLB

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Justin Cox, CB, Mississippi State
    Byron Maxwell signed with the Eagles, while Tharold Simon was atrocious in the Super Bowl when he had to replace Jeremy Lane.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: JaCorey Shepherd, CB, Kansas
    The Buccaneers may target a cornerback earlier than this. They could use some competition for Johnthan Banks.

    Pick change; previously Quandre Diggs, CB

  33. Carolina Panthers: Martell Spaight, OLB, Arkansas
    Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis are studs, but Carolina could stand to find a third linebacker to complement the two Pro Bowlers.

  34. Seattle Seahawks: Chris Conley, WR, Georgia
    The Seahawks traded for Jimmy Graham, but they could still stand to add another play-maker, as their receiving corps doesn’t have much talent.

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Ray Drew, DE/DT, Georgia
    The Ravens could stand to add another defensive lineman. They lost Haloti Ngata and won’t have Chris Canty that much longer.

    Pick change; previously Austin Hill, WR

  36. Kansas City Chiefs: B.J. Finney, C, Kansas State
    Here’s a potential replacement for Rodney Hudson, who signed with the Raiders this offseason.

  37. Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Bridge, QB, South Alabama
    The Chiefs could stand to add a young quarterback to groom behind Alex Smith.

  38. Carolina Panthers: Kenny Bell, WR, Nebraska
    Another receiver? Why not? Cam Newton needs all the help he can get.

    Pick change; previously Josh Harper, WR

  39. Houston Texans: Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan State
    The Texans signed Rahim Moore this offseason, but they could still use a mid-round pick on the safety position, just in case D.J. Swearinger continues to struggle.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Hardison, DE/DT

  40. Baltimore Ravens: Shane Carden, QB, East Carolina
    The Ravens lost Tyrod Taylor this offseason, so they could add competition for the No. 2 quarterback position.
