  1. 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.

  2. Oakland Raiders: Ramik Wilson, ILB, Georgia
    Miles Burris is perhaps the worst starting linebacker in the NFL. The Raiders desperately need an upgrade in the middle of their defense.

    Pick change; previously Stefon Diggs, WR

  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.



  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.

  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: Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB, Louisville
    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 Nate Orchard, DE

  8. 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.

    Pick change; previously Tre Jackson, G

  9. St. Louis Rams: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    With Jake Long’s future uncertain, the Rams may want to find some help on the offensive line this upcoming offseason.

    Pick change; previously Senquez Golson, CB

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  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. Chicago Bears: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    Kyle Fuller has looked great so far – he completely shut down Kelvin Benjamin and other solid receivers – but the Bears will need another corner with Charles Tillman likely done.

    Pick change; previously Trey Flowers, DE

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford
    Depending on how things shake out this offseason, the Ravens may want to bring in multiple new wide receivers.

    Pick change; previously Jay Ajayi, RB



  17. San Diego Chargers: Jordan Jenkins, DE/OLB, Georgia
    It wouldn’t hurt the Chargers if they added another pass-rusher, considering that they have to go against Peyton Manning twice per year.

    Pick change; previously Laken Tomlinson, G

  18. 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.

  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.

  20. Detroit Lions: Christian Covington, DT, Rice
    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 Gabe Wright, DT



  21. Atlanta Falcons: Nate Orchard, DE, Utah
    The Falcons may want to double up on pass-rushers, given that they absolutely need to improve their ability to get to the quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Jenkins, DE/OLB

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. Indianapolis Colts: Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Stanford
    Cory Redding has been a stud this year, but he will be a 34-year-old free agent in March. A long-term pass-rusher on the defensive line is needed.

    Pick change; previously Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB



  25. 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.

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

  27. 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.

  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: Z’Darius Smith, DE/OLB, Kentucky
    The Cardinals need a long-term pass-rusher across from Sam Acho; John Abraham will be a 37-year-old free agent next spring. I was surprised they didn’t draft an edge rusher this past May.

    Pick change; previously Ramik Wilson, ILB

  31. Green Bay Packers: Trey Flowers, DE/OLB, Arkansas
    Julius Peppers has been a natural fit for the Packers, but he’s just a short-term rental. Green Bay may want to add another pass-rusher for the future.

    Pick change; previously Ramik Wilson, ILB

  32. New England Patriots: D.J. Humphries, OT/G, Florida
    Another versatile offensive lineman, as Bill Belichick could spend multiple picks to fortify his front line.
