  1. Oakland Raiders: Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland
    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: Corey Robinson, OT, South Carolina
    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 T.J. Clemmings, OT

  3. 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.

  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    Doug Martin looks like a lost cause, while Charlie Sims hasn’t impressed very much. The Buccaneers may want to use a mid-round selection on another running back.

    Pick change; previously Nate Orchard, DE



  5. Tennessee Titans: Derron Smith, S, Fresno State
    Here’s more help for the Titans in their putrid secondary. Their safeties have been just as bad as their corners.

    Pick change; previously Wayne Lyons, CB

  6. 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.

  7. New York Giants: Nate Orchard, DE, Utah
    Jerry Reese is never opposed to grabbing a pass-rusher in the draft. The Giants could use another one with Mathia Kiwanuka bound to hit free agency soon.

    Pick change; previously Duke Johnson, RB

  8. Carolina Panthers: Tre Jackson, G, Florida State
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Panthers, who desperately need to bolster their front line.

    Pick change; previously Jay Ajayi, RB

  9. 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.

  10. St. Louis Rams: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    The Rams will probably look into adding cornerback depth at some point during the 2015 NFL Draft, as there is very little behind the top three players at that position.

    Pick change; previously Dorial Green-Beckham, WR

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
    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 Cameron Erving, OT

  12. 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.



  13. 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.

  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.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Anthony Harris, S, Virginia
    Both Louis Delmas and Jimmy Wilson will be impending free agents this upcoming offseason, and all the Dolphins have waiting in the wings is 2014 fourth-rounder Walt Aikens. Miami will have to get younger and better at the safety position.

    Pick change; previously Gabe Wright, DT

  16. 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.



  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Cleveland Browns: Sean Hickey, OT, Syracuse
    The Browns were considering finding an upgrade over right tackle Mitchell Schwartz this offseason, and they would’ve considered Greg Robinson if he fell to them.

    Pick change; previously Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB

  20. Baltimore Ravens: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State
    Justin Forsett has been a journeyman running back, so even though he has performed well this year, the Ravens may want to find help at the position.

    Pick change; previously Derron Smith, S



  21. Atlanta Falcons: Jordan Jenkins, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The Falcons may want to double up on pass-rushers, given that they absolutely need to improve their ability to get to the quarterback.

  22. Indianapolis Colts: Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB, Louisville
    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.

    Pick change; previously Obum Gwacham, DE/OLB

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

  24. Dallas Cowboys: Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan State
    The Cowboys are still hurting in the secondary, and they could use an upgrade at both corner and safety.

    Pick change; previously Senquez Golson, CB



  25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jordan Richards, S, Stanford
    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 Anthony Harris, S

  26. 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.

  27. Kansas City Chiefs: Justin Hardy, WR, East Carolina
    Here’s some more receiving help for the Chiefs. Maybe one of their wideouts will score a touchdown next year.

    Pick change; previously A.J. Johnson, ILB

  28. Detroit Lions: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn
    The Lions suddenly need to look at defensive tackles. Ndamukong Suh is entering his contract year, while Nick Fairley has issues with lethargy.

    Pick change; previously Tyeler Davison, DT

  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: Ramik Wilson, ILB, Georgia
    The Cardinals didn’t properly replace Karlos Dansby, and given the issues with Daryl Washington, they may look at an inside linebacker in the early rounds of the 2015 NFL Daft.

    Pick change; previously Arie Kouandjio, G

  31. Green Bay Packers: Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Stanford
    The Packers have been better defensively lately, but they could still use some help up front to help them get to the quarterback.

  32. New England Patriots: D.J. Humphries, OT/G, Florida
    The Patriots’ biggest weakness is the offensive line. The interior has had issues this year, so Bill Belichick may want to look at another Florida player to help him remedy that problem.

    Pick change; previously Leon Orr, DE/DT
