  1. Cleveland Browns: Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee
    The Browns had some horrific secondary play last year, as both positions need to be upgraded. Their cornerback situation is pretty dire.

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Julie’n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
    The 49ers have nothing at right tackle, yet weren’t able to do anything about it in free agency.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: D’Onta Foreman, RB, Texas
    Both T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory have disappointed. If the Jaguars don’t select Leonard Fournette, they could take a running back in the mid-rounds.

    Pick change; previously DeMarcus Walker, DE



  4. Chicago Bears: Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan
    The Bears lost Alshon Jeffery this offseason, while Kevin White has yet to prove that he can remain healthy. Using an early-round selection on a receiver makes a lot of sense.

  5. Los Angeles Rams: Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh
    The Rams need to add lots of talent to help develop Jared Goof, which seems like a problem because they don’t have a first-round pick. Their pass protection definitely needs to improve.

  6. Los Angeles Chargers: Fish Smithson, S, Kansas
    Here’s a mid-round safety option the Chargers could obtain if they can’t land Malik Hooker or Jamal Adams.

    Pick change; previously Vince Biegel, DE/OLB



  7. Washington Redskins: Joshua Dobbs, QB, Tennessee
    There’s a good chance Kirk Cousins leaves. If so, the Redskins need to be prepared.

    Pick change; previously Cooper Kupp, WR

  8. Carolina Panthers: Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU
    With Ted Ginn gone and Devin Funchess disappointing, the Panthers are expected to select a receiver in Rounds 2-4.

    Pick change; previously Chad Hansen, WR

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
    Cincinnati is planning on doubling up at receiver. When it plans on doing that is unclear, but it should happen at some point.



  10. Chicago Bears: Rasul Douglas, CB, West Virginia
    The Bears signed Prince Amukamara, but that was to a 1-year deal. This pick could be used on a more long-term solution. Help at cornerback is needed for this year as well.

  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU
    The Eagles traded for Timmy Jernigan, but I still think they’ll be in the market for one more defensive tackle because of Beau Allen’s injury.



  12. Arizona Cardinals: Jermaine Eluemunor, G, Texas A&M
    The Cardinals still have some issues on the offensive line that they need to address, as they need to replace the retired Evan Mathis.

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Ethan Pocic, C/G, LSU
    Joe Berger is a 35-year-old heading into his contract season, so the Vikings may want to find a new center.




  14. Indianapolis Colts: Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa
    The Colts have addressed outside linebacker and inside linebacker thus far. Now, they have to look to the defensive line, which is mostly weak at the moment.

  15. Baltimore Ravens: Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming
    The Ravens signed Danny Woodhead, but he won’t be enough, especially with Kenneth Dixon being suspended for the first four games.

  16. Washington Redskins: Anthony Walker, ILB, Northwestern
    Zach Brown was signed, but just to a 1-year deal. The Redskins still need to address the inside linebacker position.

  17. Tennessee Titans: Kendell Beckwith, ILB, LSU
    Outside of the secondary, the one area the Titans need to address is the inside linebacker group.

  18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jalen Myrick, CB, Minnesota
    The Buccaneers tried to sign a cornerback this offseason, but weren’t successful. Perhaps they’ll go that direction in the 2017 NFL Draft.

  19. Denver Broncos: Charles Walker, DT, Oklahoma
    Here’s more defensive line help for the Broncos, as Charles Walker appears to be a nice fit in Denver’s scheme.



  20. Detroit Lions: Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
    The Lions will be looking for another receiver at some point to replace Anquan Boldin.

  21. Minnesota Vikings: Deatrich Wise Jr., DE, Arkansas
    It never hurts to add more pass-ruhers, and Deatrich Wise Jr. fits the traits the Vikings typically look for in their prospects.

  22. Oakland Raiders: Connor Harris, ILB, Lindenwood
    Jelani Jenkins was signed, but that was to a short-term deal. Someone like Connor Harris could be a solution for the long haul.



  23. Houston Texans: Montae Nicholson, S, Michigan State
    The Texans need more help in their secondary after losing Quintin Demps to the Bears.

  24. New England Patriots: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston
    The Patriots could be trading Malcolm Butler to the Saints. They could be on the lookout for a cornerback, regardless.

  25. Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Wilson, LB, Cincinnati
    Derrick Johnson is coming off yet another injury, so it seems clear that his time is running out. The Chiefs will need to find a replacement.

  26. Dallas Cowboys: Xavier Woods, S, Louisiana Tech
    The Cowboys lost both J.J. Wilcox and Barry Church this offseason, so I expect them to target a safety early in the 2017 NFL Draft.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Jessamen Dunker, G, Tennessee State
    The Packers are going to have two guards – Don Barclay, Lane Taylor – hitting free agency next offseason. A mid-round pick could be used on help.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Maye, S

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Eddie Vanderdoes, DT, UCLA
    The Steelers could lose Stephon Tuitt next offseason to free agency, so here’s a potential replacement.

  29. Atlanta Falcons: Eli McGuire, RB, Louisiana-Lafayette
    Devonta Freeman will be a free agent next offseason, so the Falcons could stand to add some insurance at running back.

  30. Indianapolis Colts: Corn Elder, CB, Miami
    Vontae Davis is set to become a free agent next offseason. Losing him would hurt, so here’s a potential replacement.

  31. Cincinnati Bengals: Aviante Collins, OT, TCU
    The Bengals have lots of uncertainty at offensive tackle after losing Andrew Whitworth, so here’s their chance to potentially find a solution.

  32. Philadelphia Eagles: Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State
    As mentioned earlier, the Eagles could double up on cornerbacks early. This works as well.

  33. New York Giants: Zach Banner, G/OT, USC
    The Giants are still looking to add an interior offensive lineman, as evidenced by their interest in Nick Mangold. Here’s an alternative solution.



  34. Los Angeles Rams: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama
    The Rams lost T.J. McDonald this offseason, so they’ll have to find a replacement in the 2017 NFL Draft.

  35. Houston Texans: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
    A third defensive back in three rounds makes sense. The Texans must attack their secondary.

    Pick change; previously Chad Wheeler, OT

  36. San Francisco 49ers: Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
    Center is one of the many positions the 49ers need to address. They could do that in Rounds 3-5, based on the talent in this draft.

  37. Indianapolis Colts: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson
    The Colts need to find a successor for Frank Gore, so I’d expect them to pick a running back between the second and fourth rounds.

    Pick change; previously Danny Isidora, G
