  1. Oakland Raiders: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn
    The Raiders signed a bunch of short-term solutions for the defensive tackle position this past offseason, but they’ll have to find players to fill the void in the future.

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    The Jaguars have to make upgrades seemingly everywhere, including the interior. They have to upgrade Blake Bortles’ blocking.

    Pick change; previously Corey Robinson, OT

  3. Tennessee Titans: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest
    Blidi Wreh-Wilson has been dreadful as a replacement for Alterraun Verner. The Titans could use more secondary help.

    Pick change; previously Wayne Lyons, CB

  4. New York Jets: Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    The Jets may want to use a mid-round selection on a quarterback to possibly take over for Geno Smith if he continues to struggle.



  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Wayne Lyons, CB, Stanford
    The Buccaneers spent a second-round pick on Johnthan Banks a couple of years ago, but he has been a major disappointment as a starting corner.

    Pick change; previously Quandre Diggs, CB

  6. Washington Redskins: Jordan Richards, S, Stanford
    The issues the Redskins have in their secondary are pretty well documented. They’ve been counting on Ryan Clark this year, which is disastrous because the former Steeler is way past his prime.

    Pick change; previously Steve Nelson, CB

  7. Buffalo Bills: Arie Kouandjio, G, Albama
    Teams that go with quarterbacks early usually pick a player to complement that signal-caller afterward. The Bills could give their new quarterback better pass protection, especially on the interior.

  8. St. Louis Rams: KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame
    The Rams could stand to upgrade their secondary so they have fewer blown coverages the next time they decide to blow a big lead.

  9. Houston Texans: Josh Harper, WR, Fresno State
    Andre Johnson won’t be around much longer, so the Texans may want to think about whom they’re going to start across from DeAndre Hopkins.

  10. Carolina Panthers: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
    Cam Newton has gotten crushed behind a poor front thus far, so this is the latest that Carolina should address the offensive line.

    Pick change; previously Kasen Williams, WR

  11. Chicago Bears: Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan State
    All of the injuries the Bears sustained at the safety position a couple of Mondays ago was a reminder that the position could stand to be upgraded. Chris Conte has dealt with too many concussions.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Richards, S

  12. Cleveland Browns: Danny Shelton, NT, Washington
    Ahtyba Rubin is an impending free agent this March. Here’s a replacement if the Browns can’t retain him.



  13. Miami Dolphins: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
    Cortland Finnegan hasn’t been terrible this year, but the fact that the Dolphins are using him is a sign that they need corner help.

    Pick change; previously Tyeer Davison, DT

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    Though unlikely, it’s possible that Adrian Peterson may never play for the Vikings again. It would be nice if Minnesota found an upgrade over Matt Asiata.

  15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Trey Flowers, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    The Steelers hate drafting edge rushers early on because of scheme transition issues, but they really need to upgrade their pass rush.

  16. Atlanta Falcons: Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame
    Think Matt Ryan missed having a reliable, intermediate target when he was constantly under siege in Cincinnati and New York?

    Pick change; previously Ronnie Stanley, OT

  17. New York Giants: Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State
    The Giants need to get younger and better in their defensive interior after losing Linval Joseph. Cullen Jenkins, 34 in January, won’t be around much longer.

    Pick change; previously Laken Tomlinson, G

  18. Dallas Cowboys: Steve Nelson, CB, Oregon State
    It doesn’t appear as though Morris Claiborne will be on the Cowboys much longer. They’ll have to find a replacement.

    Pick change; previously Kurtis Drummond, S

  19. Kansas City Chiefs: D.J. Humphries, OT/G, Florida
    Here’s more help for Kansas City’s offensive line. Andy Reid is not going to stand to have a front that blocks poorly.

    Pick change; previously Charles Gaines, CB

  20. Detroit Lions: Cam Thomas, CB, Western Kentucky
    Both Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler had to be thrilled when the Lions selected Eric Ebron in the 2014 NFL Draft because they neglected their secondary once again. Perhaps that’ll change next spring.

    Pick change; previously Ameer Abdullah, RB



  21. New Orleans Saints: Z’Darius Smith, DE/OLB, Kentucky
    The Saints got rid of Victor Butler, so they definitely need to work on finding an upgrade across from Junior Galette. Anyone who can tackle would fit in well.

    Pick change; previously Cedric Reed, DE/OLB

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    Another Oregon player for Chip Kelly. This one can upgrade Todd Herremans at right guard and then move to tackle once Jason Peters retires.

    Pick change; previously Hauoli Kikaha, DE/OLB

  23. New England Patriots: Leon Orr, DE/DT, Florida
    Bill Belichick loves his Florida players. He’s also a big fan of scheme-versatile prospects.

  24. Baltimore Ravens: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    I could definitely see the Ravens doubling up on receivers in April. The position is pretty weak.

    Pick change; previously Austin Hill, WR



  25. Arizona Cardinals: A.J. Johnson, ILB, Tennessee
    It’s a shame that Daryl Washington can’t stay out of trouble because he’s a very talented player. Here’s a potential replacement.

  26. Indianapolis Colts: Karlos Williams, RB, Florida State
    I don’t know when the Colts are finally going to concede that Trent Richardson is a bust, but they may add a mid-round running back to eventually take his place.

  27. San Francisco 49ers: Kasen Williams, WR, Washington
    If Michael Crabtree leaves via free agency, the 49ers will definitely have to do something about the receiver position.

    Pick change; previously Dorial Green-Beckham, WR

  28. Cincinnati Bengals: Obum Gwacham, DE, Oregon State
    The Bengals never properly replaced Michael Johnson, so perhaps they’ll do that next offseason.

  29. Green Bay Packers: Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Stanford
    One of the many reasons the Packers are struggling defensively is because their front has been a disappointment this season. Datone Jones hasn’t progressed at all.

  30. San Diego Chargers: Charles Gaines, CB, Louisville
    Without many major needs, the Chargers can afford to make luxury picks, such as adding to their secondary depth.

    Pick change; previously Kevin Johnson, CB

  31. Denver Broncos: Cody Riggs, CB, Notre Dame
    The Broncos just spent a first-round pick on a cornerback, but they’ll have to deal with Chris Harris’ impending free agency this March.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Justin Hardy, WR, East Carolina
    The Seahawks can go best player available and add another weapon to Russell Wilson’s arsenal.

    NFL Picks will be posted all day Wednesday.
