  1. Cleveland Browns: Tajae Sharpe, WR, UMass
    The Browns aren’t exactly stable at receiver. Josh Gordon is coming back, and while all indications are that he’s turned his life around, Cleveland can’t completely count on him. Travis Benjamin, meanwhile, is an impending free agent.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Jordan Jenkins, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The Titans have two strong pass-rushers in Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo, but they could use some depth on the edge.

    Pick change; previously Rashard Robinson, CB

  3. Dallas Cowboys: Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina State
    The Cowboys didn’t have the greatest depth at defensive tackle this past season, so perhaps this is one area they’ll fix.

  4. San Diego Chargers: Jihad Ward, DE/DT, Illinois
    The Chargers addressed their offensive line. Now, they have to bolster the trenches on the other side of the ball, as Corey Liuget needs help.

    Pick change; previously Miles Killebrew, S



  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
    The Jaguars weren’t pleased with how Denard Robinson performed behind T.J. Yeldon. I could see them targeting a running back in the middle rounds.

  6. Baltimore Ravens: Jayron Kearse, S, Clemson
    Here’s the other upgrade in the secondary that the Ravens need. Cornerback is a bigger hole, but a safety should be obtained as well.

    Pick change; previously Chris Jones, DE/DT

  7. San Francisco 49ers: Max Tuerk, C, USC
    The 49ers have absolutely nothing at center, as Marcus Martin is completely worthless. They have to target the center position during the offseason.

  8. Chicago Bears: Artie Burns, CB, Miami
    Tracy Porter played well at the beginning of the year, but then, reality set in, causing him to struggle. The Bears have to find help at corner.



  9. Miami Dolphins: Sebastian Tretola, G, Arkansas
    The Dolphins are desperate at guard. Two upgrades are needed at the position to help Ryan Tannehill’s development.

  10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina
    I could see the Buccaneers spending a mid-round pick on a tight end, given that Austin Seferian-Jenkins hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

  11. New York Giants: Miles Killebrew, S, Southern Utah
    The Giants’ pass defense has been atrocious this season. Their safety play has been horrific. This position could be addressed even earlier.

    Pick change; previously Karl Joseph, S

  12. Los Angeles Rams: Kevon Seymour, CB, USC
    Janoris Jenkins is an impending free agent, so the Rams could explore the cornerback position early in the 2016 NFL Draft.



  13. Detroit Lions: Charles Tapper, DE, Oklahoma
    Here’s another defensive lineman for the Lions, as they’ll need someone to replace Jason Jones if he leaves via free agency.

  14. New Orleans Saints: Deiondre’ Hall, CB, Northern Iowa
    The Saints have to bolster their secondary. They need to do everything in their power to get Brandon Browner off the field. Knowing Browner, he’ll still be penalized on the sidelines.

  15. Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana
    The Eagles, as of this writing, have a deal in place to trade DeMarco Murray. If he leaves, the team will obviously have to obtain a new running back.

    Pick change; previously Tajae Sharpe, WR

  16. Oakland Raiders: James Cowser, DE/OLB, Southern Utah
    I mentioned in the first round that trusting Aldon Smith is too risky. Here’s an insurance policy.

  17. Atlanta Falcons: Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas
    The Falcons should think about grooming a backup quarterback, as they don’t really have anything behind Matt Ryan.

  18. Indianapolis Colts: Daniel Lasco, RB, California
    Frank Gore doesn’t have much left in the tank, so the Colts will need to find someone who can take over in the near future.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Howard, RB

  19. Buffalo Bills: Aziz Shittu, DE, Stanford
    The lethargic Mario Williams is on his way out, so the Bills will be searching for a new edge rusher.

    Pick change; previously Demarcus Robinson, WR

  20. New York Jets: Victor Ochi, DE/OLB, Stony Brook
    The Jets have needed help at outside linebacker for quite some time now. Finding a better pass rush would help take care of some of the issues in the secondary.



  21. Houston Texans: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State
    Houston continues to bolster its anemic offense, as the tight end position will definitely need to be addressed.

  22. Washington Redskins: Vonn Bell, S, Ohio State
    Here’s another potential upgrade for Washington’s woeful secondary. A couple of early picks in the 2016 NFL Draft could certainly be used on defensive backs.

    Pick change; previously Jayron Kearse, S

  23. Minnesota Vikings: Willie Henry, DT, Michigan
    The Vikings could stand to benefit adding some depth to the interior of their defensive front.

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU
    Pacman Jones was terrific this past season, but with he and Leon Hall both older than 30, the Bengals will have to find some young blood at cornerback.

    Pick change; previously Tyvis Powell, S



  25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jaylon Smith, LB, Notre Dame
    This could be a steal or a whiff. Jaylon Smith is very talented, but he may never play in the NFL because of nerve damage in his knee. The Steelers could afford to wait on him until Lawrence Timmons plays out his time in Pittsburgh.

  26. Seattle Seahawks: James Bradberry, CB, Samford
    Seattle’s latest mid-round tall cornerback, James Bradberry could help an ailing secondary that couldn’t stop Cam Newton in the divisional round.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
    The Packers have a solid first-string offensive line. The reason they struggled to block in 2015 was because they had zero depth to properly replace injured players. That needs to change.

  28. Kansas City Chiefs: Willie Beavers, OT, Western Michigan
    Andy Reid may panic at this juncture, realizing that he hasn’t addressed his offensive line yet. He’ll need someone to push his mediocre tackles.

    Pick change; previously Joe Schobert, DE/OLB

  29. New England Patriots: Connor McGovern, G, Missouri
    The Patriots have to address their offensive line, as Tom Brady’s health will be in jeopardy if this liability isn’t fixed.

  30. Arizona Cardinals: Spencer Drango, OT, Baylor
    Someone to push D.J. Humphries, perhaps? It’s still early, but Humphries hasn’t looked like he can play in the NFL at all.

    Pick change; previously Willie Beavers, OT



  31. Carolina Panthers: Kenny Lawler, WR, California
    The Panthers could stand to add receiving depth, just in case they sustain injuries to the position again next year.

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona
    Daryl Smith’s play has dropped off recently, so it wouldn’t surprise me if the Ravens draft a successor at some point.
