  1. Cleveland Browns: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA
    The Browns need to do even more to upgrade their horrific secondary. Multiple upgrades at both positions will be quite welcome.

    Pick change; previously Kevin King, CB

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Steven Taylor, LB, Houston
    The 49ers are a mess at inside linebacker; they had just one healthy player at the position on the field versus the Falcons. With NaVorro Bowman’s future uncertain, the 49ers need to find help at the position.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami
    Brad Kaaya’s stock has slipped, but he’s possibly a bargain in the fourth round. The Jaguars could consider taking him, as they can’t really bench Blake Bortles because they don’t have an alternative. Drafting a quarterback who actually cares about football would be nice.



  4. Chicago Bears: Donnie Miles, S, North Carolina
    The Bears might want to think about adding some competiton at safety for Harold Jones-Quartey to play next to Adrian Amos.

  5. Los Angeles Rams: Jerod Evans, QB, Virginia Tech
    The Rams almost have to draft a quarterback at some point because Jared Goof has been that bad. I’ve been covering the NFL for almost 20 years, and the Rams, with Goof, are the worst team I’ve ever seen.

  6. Los Angeles Chargers: Pat Elflein, C/G, Ohio State
    Here’s San Diego’s, I mean, Los Angeles’ chance to help Philip Rivers even more with offensive line help. This is a versatile lineman who can either start at guard or provide depth at all three interior spots.



  7. Washington Redskins: Tyrone Crowder, G, Clemson
    Washington’s offensive line has played well this year, but the team has to find an upgrade over guard Shawn Lauvao. A mid-round selection can be used on one.

  8. Carolina Panthers: Avery Gennesy, OT, Texas A&M
    It’s perfectly possible that the Panthers will spend multiple picks on offensive tackles in the first three or four rounds, given how dire the situation is for them at the position.

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA
    Cincinnati’s offense sputtered in 2016 for a variety of reasons. An early injury to Tyler Eifert hurt, and then A.J. Green was knocked out of several games before ownership decided that he wouldn’t see the field at all. An issue that was prevalent throughout all of this past year was the massive hole the Bengals had at right tackle. Cedric Ogbuehi struggled terribly, which doesn’t bode well for the future at all because Andrew Whitworth won’t be around much longer.

    Pick change; previously K.D. Cannon, WR



  10. Chicago Bears: Davis Webb, QB, California
    I think the Bears will go the veteran route at quarterback, but I don’t think this means they won’t select a quarterback entirely. I could see them pulling the trigger on one in the middle rounds.

  11. New Orleans Saints: Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson
    Coby Fleener has been a predictable bust signing thus far, so the Saints could add some competition at tight end to push Fleener.

    Pick change; previously Alex Anzalone, LB

  12. Philadelphia Eagles: Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech
    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Eagles doubled up at receiver, given how devoid of talent they are at the position.



  13. Arizona Cardinals: Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida
    Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington are entering free agency, so the Cardinals will need some depth behind David Johnson.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Willis, DE/OLB

  14. Indianapolis Colts: Deatrich Wise Jr., DE/DT Arkansas
    The Colts are very weak on the defensive line, as Kendall Langford is done, while Arthur Jones was one of many Ryan Grigson free-agent gems, doing nothing despite signing a $33 million contract. Jones is as good as gone, so Indianapolis needs a new five-technique.




  15. Minnesota Vikings: Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina
    The Vikings obviously can’t give up on Laquon Treadwell yet, but they have to be worried that he’ll be another Cordarrelle Patterson. Here’s some insurance.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Jake Replogle, DE/DT, Purdue
    Whether it’s at outside linebacker or at defensive end, the Ravens absolutely have to upgrade their anemic pass rush. Baltimore doesn’t really have much at defensive end outside of Timmy Jernigan.

  17. Washington Redskins: Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson
    With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon entering free agency, the Redskins will have to find another receiver at some point. Josh Doctson will step in as a starter, but another wideout is needed.

  18. Tennessee Titans: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee
    Given their major problems at cornerback, the Titans could choose to double up on the position in the first four rounds.

    Pick change; previously Howard Wilson, CB

  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Fish Smithson, S, Kansas
    The Buccaneers had major problems at safety throughout the year, so they could obviously take a player at that position much earlier than this.

  20. Denver Broncos: Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
    The Broncos don’t have much at receiver outside of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, so they need a viable option in case one goes down with an injury.



  21. Detroit Lions: Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
    Ameer Abdullah hasn’t been able to stay healthy through two seasons, so the Lions should invest in a running back at some point.

  22. Minnesota Vikings: Jamar Summers, CB, Connecticut
    Terence Newman is as good as gone after staging a mutiny against Mike Zimmer, while Captain Munnerlyn is an impending free agent, so the Vikings will be looking for a cornerback at some point.

  23. Oakland Raiders: Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU
    As mentioned earlier, the Raiders happen to be very weak in the defensive interior, so they could stand to double up on defensive tackles.

    Pick change; previously Taylor Moton, OT



  24. Houston Texans: Da’Shawn Hand, DE/DT, Alabama
    The Texans have problems on their defensive line, even when J.J. Watt is healthy, which hasn’t often been the case lately. Here’s some help.

  25. New England Patriots: Vincent Taylor, DT, Oklahoma State
    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Patriots doubled up on defensive tackles, given that it’s the weakest position on their roster.

  26. Kansas City Chiefs: Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
    Andy Reid loves to utilize two-tight offenses, but he doesn’t have much at the position outside of Travis Kelce.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Travis Rudolph, WR, Florida State
    The Cowboys could do better at receiver across from Dez Bryant, and it would be nice for Dak Prescott to have a potent downfield threat for when Bryant is out of the lineup.

    Pick change; previously Amba Etta-Tawo, WR

  28. Green Bay Packers: Scott Quessenberry, G, UCLA
    If the Packers have a weakness on the offensive line, it’s at left guard with Lane Taylor. Josh Sitton has been missed, so here’s some help.

  29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
    Martavis Bryant has an expiring contract after 2017, and Pittsburgh may decide that it can’t rely on him.

  30. Atlanta Falcons: Alex Anzalone, LB, Florida
    Philip Wheeler has played far too many snaps for the Falcons this year, so they should make sure that doesn’t happen again.

    Pick change; previously Kendell Beckwith, LB

  31. New England Patriots: Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh
    The Patriots could stand to upgrade one of their guard spots, as Joe Thuney has been the weakest link up front for New England.

  32. New York Giants: Dalvin Thompson, DT, Alabama
    The Giants spent tons of money on their defensive line, but it hasn’t produced as expected. Adding a player who can generate interior pressure will be important.
