  1. Cleveland Browns: Jonnu Smith, TE, Florida International
    Gary Barnidge is a late bloomer, but that also means that he’ll have to be replaced in the near future.

    Pick change; previously Sam Rogers, FB

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Elijah Qualls, DT, Washington
    With the 49ers moving to a 4-3, they’ll need to collect some pieces that happen to fit their defense.

  3. Chicago Bears: Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo
    The Bears could go for combine standout Adam Shaheen, as their starting tight end, Zach Miller, is skilled, but often injured.



  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Danny Isidora, G, Miami
    The Jaguars have to keep adding offensive talent around Blake Bortles to be completely sure that he’s not a bust.

    Pick change; previously Wayne Gallman, RB

  5. Los Angeles Rams: Will Holden, OT, Vanderbilt
    The Rams signed Andrew Whitworth, but he’s obviously a short-term solution at left tackle because he’s 35.

  6. New York Jets: Chad Williams, WR, Grambling
    Brandon Marshall was released and then signed with the Giants. New York needs a new receiver to replace Marshall.



  7. Los Angeles Chargers: Amba Etta-Tawo, WR, Syracuse
    Keenan Allen can’t stay healthy, while Dontrelle Inman will be an impending free agent after this season, so another receiver could be added.

    Pick change; previously C.J. Beathard, QB

  8. Carolina Panthers: Fred Ross, WR, Mississippi State
    The Panthers could add two receivers in the draft to really bolster the position.

    Pick change; previously Sean Harlow, G

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Chad Hansen, WR, California
    As mentioned earlier, the Bengals are expected to double up on receivers, as they really need to attack the position.

    Pick change; previously Fred Ross, WR



  10. Washington Redskins: Kyle Fuller, C, Baylor
    The Redskins could add a center with Spencer Long due to hit free agency after this season.

    Pick change; previously Trevor Knight, QB

  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Keionta Davis, DE, UT-Chattanooga
    Connor Barwin left via free agency, and while Chris Long was signed, that was just a short-term depth addition.

  12. Buffalo Bills: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
    One of Buffalo’s greatest needs is at right tackle. Unfortunately, this class is pretty weak at the position.



  13. Arizona Cardinals: Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
    Michael Floyd is gone, while Larry Fitzgerald could retire soon. Arizona will have to find a new receiver.

    Pick change; previously Nazair Jones, DE/DT

  14. Indianapolis Colts: Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee
    Donte Moncrief will be a free agent after this season, while Phillip Dorsett has done nothing thus far, so the Colts could try to obtain a mid-round receiver.




  15. Baltimore Ravens: Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech
    It seems like all of Baltimore’s tight ends fit under one of three categories: injured, old or underwhelming. Bucky Hodges provides solid value here.

  16. Minnesota Vikings: Sam Tevi, OT, Utah
    The Vikings added two offensive tackles in free agency, but that’s not enough. They know very well what can happen if injuries take place on the offensive line.

  17. San Francisco 49ers: Vince Biegel, DE/OLB, Wisconsin
    The 49ers are really hurting at linebacker and could add multiple players at the position.

    Pick change; previously Garrett Sickels, DE

  18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jehu Chesson, WR, Michigan
    The Buccaneers need a third receiver to play alongside Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson. Corey Davis is an option in Round 1, but this makes sense as well.

  19. New England Patriots: Jeremy McNichols, RB, Boise State
    The Patriots could re-sign LeGarrette Blount. If not, they may look to add another runner despite acquiring Rex Burkhead.

  20. Tennessee Titans: Nazair Jones, DE/DT, North Carolina
    The Titans could stand to add some defensive line depth during the third day of the 2017 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Johnathan Ford, S



  21. Detroit Lions: Brian Allen, CB, Utah
    The Lions could be looking for a No. 2 cornerback for the future, as Nevin Lawson’s contract will expire after this season.

  22. Miami Dolphins: Jordan Morgan, G, Kutztown
    The Dolphins need a guard with Laremy Tunsil moving to left tackle.

    Pick change; previously Jonnu Smith, TE

  23. New York Giants: Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona State
    The Giants currently don’t have a viable kicker on their roster, so this is an option on Day 3.



  24. Oakland Raiders: Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia
    The Raiders had one of the worst No. 3 receivers in Seth Roberts last year, so they could use an upgrade to play along with Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper.

    Pick change; previously Vincent Taylor, DT

  25. Houston Texans: Ethan Cooper, G, IUP
    The Texans could add more talent to the offensive line, which will need to improve in order to keep their new quarterback protected.

  26. Kansas City Chiefs: Vincent Taylor, DT, Oklahoma State
    Andy Reid is never one to shy away from bolstering the defensive line. He may be forced into doing so with Jaye Howard and Jarvis Jenkins set to hit free agency next spring.

  27. Buffalo Bills: Tedric Thompson, S, Colorado
    The Bills feel they’re set at safety as far as their starters are concerned, but they need to add depth at the position.

  28. Green Bay Packers: Joe Williams, RB, Utah
    The Packers could obviously address their running back situation much earlier than this, but better late than never.

    Pick change; previously Jessamen Dunker, G

  29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Marquez White, CB, Florida State
    The Steelers would like to address their cornerback situation sometime on Day 2. That didn’t work out in this scenario, unfortunately.

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

  31. Cleveland Browns: Sam Rogers, FB, Virginia Tech
    The Browns tried to sign Kyle Juszczyk this offseason, but the 49ers outbid them. Perhaps that means they’ll target a fullback in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Joshua Dobbs, QB

  32. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Harvey-Clemons, ILB, Louisville
    Kevin Minter was a nice, short-term signing, but the Bengals need a linebacker solution for the long haul.

  33. Denver Broncos: Erik Magnuson, OT, Michigan
    The Broncos could stand to add multiple offensive tackles, considering their dire situation at the position.

  34. Miami Dolphins: Travis Rudolph, WR, Florida State
    There was some trade speculation surrounding Jarvis Landry earlier in the offseason. If that’s still in the plans, perhaps the Dolphins will use a mid-round pick on a receiver.

  35. Arizona Cardinals: Adam Bisnowaty, OT, Pittsburgh
    The Cardinals had injury issues on the offensive line last year, so I’m sure they’ll be looking for blocking depth on Day 3 of the 2017 NFL Draft.

  36. Kansas City Chiefs: Josh Augusta, NT, Missouri
    Bennie Logan was signed, but for a short-term deal. The Chiefs could add a nose tackle for insurance purposes.



  37. Cleveland Browns: Matt Dayes, RB, N.C. State
    The Browns could spend one of their billion picks in the 2017 NFL Draft on a running back.

  38. Green Bay Packers: Johnathan Ford, S, Auburn
    Micah Hyde is gone, so the Packers could spend a draft pick on a replacement.

    Pick change; previously Joe Williams, RB

  39. New England Patriots: Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA
    The Patriots could spend a third-day pick on an offensive tackle, as they could stand to upgrade their blocking depth.

  40. Miami Dolphins: Nate Gerry, S, Nebraska
    The Dolphins cut Isa Abdul-Quddus, opening up a void at safety. Here’s a possible solution.

    Pick change; previously Fish Smithson, S
