  1. Oakland Raiders: Josh Harper, WR, Fresno State
    The Raiders have a bunch of secondary and tertiary options at receiver, but they don’t have a primary target for Derek Carr. They need to make sure that changes.

    Pick change; previously Duke Johnson, RB

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh
    Blake Bortles has been terrible, but perhaps he’ll stop throwing tons of interceptions if he has better protection. The Jaguars need to improve their right tackle situation.

    Pick change; previously Corey Robinson, OT

  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nate Orchard, DE, Utah
    Gerald McCoy is the only Buccaneer putting consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks. That needs to change, especially considering the other quarterbacks in the division.

  4. New York Jets: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
    If Rex Ryan is still around, I think he’ll have a nervous breakdown if his front office doesn’t give him talented corners to work with.



  5. Tennessee Titans: Wayne Lyons, CB, Stanford
    Tennessee needs help all over their defense after its multiple disgraceful showings. Blidi Wreh-Wilson has been dreadful as a replacement for Alterraun Verner. The Titans could use multiple upgrades in the secondary.

  6. Chicago Bears: Trey Flowers, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    The Bears signed a bunch of defensive ends last offseason, but some of them – mainly Jared Allen, and perhaps Lamarr Houston after his ridiculous ACL tear – are short-term rentals. Here’s a potential starter for the future.

  7. New York Giants: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    David Wilson never panned out because of his injuries, while Andre Williams looks like a bust thus far. A running back is needed, as Rashad Jennings hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

    Pick change; previously T.J. Clemmings, OT

  8. St. Louis Rams: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    Brian Quick has emerged as a solid starting receiver – though he’s finished for the year – while Tavon Austin can be used on trick plays, but the Rams need to find another wideout to put into the lineup.

  9. Atlanta Falcons: Jordan Jenkins, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The Falcons can’t be too upset with obtaining Jake Matthews at No. 6 overall this past May – though he has recently struggled with an injury – but they were one pick away from landing Khalil Mack, who has been great for the Raiders thus far. Here’s their new edge rusher.

  10. Washington Redskins: Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia
    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 Derron Smith, S

  11. Carolina Panthers: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State
    Neither DeAngelo Williams nor Jonathan Stewart is very effective anymore, so the Panthers may want to move in a different direction in terms of finding a running back.

  12. Houston Texans: Cam Thomas, CB, Western Kentucky
    The Texans wanted to address cornerback depth in the previous offseason, but never got around to it. Perhaps they will this spring.



  13. Minnesota Vikings: Cameron Erving, OT/G, Florida State
    I don’t know what in the world happened to Matt Kalil, but he’s been one of the NFL’s worst offensive tackles this season. Teddy Bridgewater is throwing mostly checkdowns right now, but perhaps that would change if he actually had some time in the pocket.

    Pick change; previously A.J. Johnson, ILB

  14. Buffalo Bills: Nick O’Leary, TE, Florida State
    The Bills already added an offensive play-maker, but they could use one more. They should upgrade the tight end position.

    Pick change; previously Arie Kouandjio, G

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Hauoli Kikaha, DE/OLB, Washington
    The 49ers should look into drafting another pass-rusher, just in case Aldon Smith can’t stay out of trouble.

  16. Miami Dolphins: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn
    Jared Odrick has played so well this year that he’ll command lots of money in free agency this upcoming spring. The Dolphins may have to find a new defensive tackle as a consequence.



  17. San Diego Chargers: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    San Diego’s offensive line played well last year, but it has been a disappointment thus far in 2014. The interior needs to get better.

    Pick change; previously Josue Matias, G

  18. Cincinnati Bengals: Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
    The Bengals should obtain a quarterback to groom as a possible replacement for the disappointing Andy Dalton.

    Pick change; previously Ronnie Stanley, OT

  19. Cleveland Browns: Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB, Louisville
    Barkevious Mingo does some things well, but he has failed to develop into a great pass-rusher. Jabaal Sheard, meanwhile, will be hitting free agency in March. With all that in mind, if Mingo continues to disappoint in terms of getting to the quarterback, the Browns will want to bring in someone who can accomplish that.

  20. Seattle Seahawks: Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame
    Neither Zach Miller nor Luke Willson has lived up to expectations. The former will be an impending free agent in March 2016, so the Seahawks, who reportedly tried to trade Percy Harvin for Jordan Cameron, could take a look at a tight end early in the 2015 NFL Draft.



  21. New Orleans Saints: Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
    The Saints’ starting center, Jonathan Goodwin, turns 36 in December. He’ll be a free agent in March.

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Derron Smith, S, Fresno State
    The Ravens’ front seven is playing extremely well, but the secondary has disappointed. The safety position has been especially bad.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Harris, S

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Anthony Harris, S, Virginia
    More help for Pittsburgh’s anemic secondary. The Steelers signed Michael Mitchell this offseason, but he hasn’t met expectations. He was torched in the Indianapolis game along with Cortez Allen.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Richards, S

  24. Dallas Cowboys: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    Having Orlando Scandrick back has been huge for the Cowboys, but they need to think about replacing Brandon Carr, who continues to disappoint.



  25. Indianapolis Colts: Obum Gwacham, DE/OLB, Oregon State
    The Colts were finally starting to put some pressure on the quarterback (prior to the Pittsburgh game), thanks to Bjoern Werner emerging, but they could still use another top-notch pass-rusher, as Robert Mathis won’t be around much longer.

  26. Kansas City Chiefs: A.J. Johnson, ILB, Tennessee
    The Chiefs need some insurance at inside linebacker, just in case a 32-year-old Derrick Johnson can’t come back from a torn Achilles.

    Pick change; previously Sean Hickey, OT

  27. Detroit Lions: Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State
    The Lions suddenly need to look at defensive tackles. Ndamukong Suh is entering his contract year, while Nick Fairley has issues with lethargy.

  28. 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.

  29. Denver Broncos: Steve Nelson, CB, Oregon State
    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.

  30. Arizona Cardinals: Arie Kouandjio, G, Alabama
    The Cardinals could stand to upgrade the interior of their offensive line. The guards have struggled, and despite this, Jonathan Cooper can’t even crack the starting lineup.

    Pick change; previously Laken Tomlinson, G

  31. 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.

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