  1. Cleveland Browns: Daniel Lasco, RB, California
    The Browns have talked about having higher-character players on the roster, so they may not want the lethargic Isaiah Crowell hanging around much longer.

    Pick change; previously Alex Collins, OT

  2. Philadelphia Eagles: Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina
    The Eagles could use a play-making threat out of the slot. Chris Givens was signed, but he’s not any sort of long-term answer.

    Pick change; previously Connor McGovern, G

  3. Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Ervin, RB, San Jose State
    Darren McFadden looked good this past season, but the Cowboys can’t really count on him for the long term. The same goes for Alfred Morris. Here’s their running back of the future.

  4. San Diego Chargers: Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina
    The Chargers re-signed Antonio Gates this offseason, but managed to lose Ladarius Green in the process. As a result, they’ll have to find a new, young tight end to take over for Gates once he retires.

    Pick change; previously Austin Johnson, DT



  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kevon Seymour, CB, USC
    The Jaguars signed Prince Amukamara, but that was to a short-term deal. Here’s a solution for the long haul.

    Pick change; previously Artie Burns, CB

  6. Baltimore Ravens: Jihad Ward, DE/DT, Illinois
    The Ravens don’t have Chris Canty anymore, so they’ll likely be searching for defensive line help in the first few rounds of the draft.

  7. San Francisco 49ers: Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
    The 49ers are so desperate at receiver that they could select multiple players at the position in the first few rounds.

  8. Chicago Bears: Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State
    Outside of cornerback, the Bears’ biggest need happens to be on the defensive line. I had them addressing the position in the first round last week, but this is definitely a plausible scenario.

    Pick change; previously Kevon Seymour, CB



  9. Miami Dolphins: Carl Nassib, DE, Penn State
    I don’t understand what the Dolphins did this offseason, but they apparently think that the recipe to winning a Super Bowl is to acquire as many old, declining defensive ends as possible. OK, I’m sure they truly don’t believe that, but they do need lots of young blood at the position after allowing Olivier Vernon to walk.

  10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Zack Sanchez, CB, Oklahoma
    The Buccaneers might have the weakest group of cornerbacks in the NFL. Alterraun Verner was an abomination this past season, while Johnthan Banks has only been marginally better, but only by default. This is an area that absolutely must be addressed this offseason. And no, signing Brent Grimes doesn’t count as addressing the position.

    Pick change; previously Ryan Smith, CB

  11. New York Giants: Charles Tapper, DE, Oklahoma
    The Giants added Olivier Vernon and retained Jason Pierre-Paul, but a defensive end remains a possibility in the early or middle portions of the 2016 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Miles Killebrew, S

  12. Los Angeles Rams: Graham Glasgow, C, Michigan
    It’s no secret that the Rams have to upgrade the center position. Fortunately for them, they’re getting a steal at this juncture.

    Pick change; previously Jerell Adams, TE



  13. Detroit Lions: Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU
    The Lions had some solid cornerback play last year, but they lost one player at the position in Rashean Mathis, who announced his retirement. Depth is needed.

  14. New Orleans Saints: Deiondre’ Hall, CB, Northern Iowa
    The Saints have to bolster their secondary. Knowing Brandon Browner, he’ll still be penalized even though he’s not on the team.

  15. Los Angeles Rams: Ryan Smith, CB, N.C. Central
    I had the Rams selecting a cornerback in the first round prior to the trade, so they could now replace Janoris Jenkins at this spot.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Jonathan Jones, CB, Auburn
    Here’s more secondary help for the Raiders. Sean Smith was signed to go along with David Amerson, but depth could be used behind those two players.

  17. Atlanta Falcons: Joshua Garnett, G, Stanford
    The Falcons made an important signing this offseason when acquiring Alex Mack, but they still need one more improvement on the interior of the offensive line to help Matt Ryan.

  18. Indianapolis Colts: Paul Perkins, RB, UCLA
    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.

  19. Buffalo Bills: Hassan Ridgeway, NT, Texas
    Kyle Williams, who turns 33 this offseason, is due $7 million in 2016, so the Bills could part ways with him.

  20. New York Jets: Matt Judon, DE/OLB, Grand Valley State
    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.

    Pick change; previously James Cowser, DE/OLB



  21. Houston Texans: Jonathan Williams, RB, Arkansas
    The Texans signed Lamar Miller, but are still in the market for another running back in the middle rounds.

  22. Washington Redskins: Evan Boehm, C, Missouri
    One of the reasons Washington’s running game was so erratic was because the team has gotten poor play out of its center. This is the primary position the Redskins need to upgrade up front.

  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: Kenny Lawler, WR, California
    Even though the two receivers the Bengals lost were overrated – and currently overpaid – they still need a ton of help at the position. As a result, they could double dip at receiver.

    Pick change; previously KeiVarae Russell, CB



  25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Beniquez Brown, ILB, Mississippi State
    I mocked Jaylon Smith here a couple of weeks ago. Another inside linebacker makes sense, as Pittsburgh can wait on him to eventually take over for Lawrence Timmons.

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Kenyan Drake, RB, Alabama
    The Seahawks have Thomas Rawls set to take over for Marshawn Lynch, but depth is needed behind him.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Willie Beavers, OT, Western Michigan
    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.

    Pick change; previously Jerald Hawkins, OT

  28. Kansas City Chiefs: Sebastian Tretola, G, Arkansas
    Andy Reid may panic at this juncture, realizing that he hasn’t addressed his offensive line yet. They need guard help in the wake of Jeff Allen’s departure.

  29. Chicago Bears: Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
    The Bears lost Matt Forte this offseason, which isn’t too bad because Jeremy Langford has shown promise. However, another running back is needed.

    Pick change; previously Christian Westerman, G

  30. Arizona Cardinals: Isaac Seumalo, C/G, Oregon State
    The Cardinals traded away an interior lineman during the second week of free agency, so here’s another. They’ve needed help at center for quite a while.



  31. Carolina Panthers: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
    Everyone saw how much the two Carolina tackles struggled in the Super Bowl. Something must be done about this.

    Pick change; previously Aziz Shittu, DE

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona
    Daryl Smith’s play has dropped off recently, so seeing him leave isn’t a big loss. However, he needs to be replaced.

  33. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana
    The Packers managed to re-sign James Starks, but running back remains a need because of Eddie Lacy’s weight problems (though from pictures, he looks like he’s shed an entire human being.)

  34. Baltimore Ravens: Joe Schobert, DE/OLB, Wisconsin
    The Ravens need some young blood on the edge, as neither Terrell Suggs nor Elvis Dumervil will be around much longer.

  35. San Francisco 49ers: Maurice Canady, CB, Virginia
    The 49ers haven’t selected a cornerback yet, and with extra picks at their disposal, they’re bound to do so at some point.

  36. Baltimore Ravens: Kyle Murphy, OT, Stanford
    It appears as though the Ravens want to cut ties with the overpaid and injury-prone Eugene Monroe, but they’ll need to spend an early selection on a left tackle in order to do that.

    Pick change; previously Spencer Drango, OT

  37. Dallas Cowboys: Tyvis Powell, S, Ohio State
    Even if the Cowboys keep Byron Jones at safety, they might be interested in adding some competition to the other starting spot.

  38. Denver Broncos: Matt Ioannidis, DE/DT, Temple
    The Broncos can double up on defensive linemen here, as they’ll need some depth to go along with the starter they obtained in the first round.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Zettel, DE/DT

  39. Green Bay Packers: Tajae Sharpe, WR, UMass
    Giving Aaron Rodgers another play-maker in the middle rounds wouldn’t be the worst idea, especially after what happened last year.

    Pick change; previously Rashard Higgins, WR

  40. Cleveland Browns: Anthony Zettel, DE/DT, Penn State
    The Browns are pretty thin on the defensive line, so I anticipate them spending a mid-round choice on depth.

    Pick change; previously Matt Ioannidis, DE/DT

  41. Buffalo Bills: Denver Kirkland, G/OT, Arkansas
    The Bills almost lost Richie Incognito this offseason, which might have made them realize that they don’t have much behind him.
