  1. Cleveland Browns: Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan
    Joe Haden got off to a strong start this season, but has been injured lately. The Browns have nothing else at cornerback anyway. That’ll obviously need to change, and this draft is loaded with talented players at the position.

    Pick change; previously Dion Dawkins, OT

  2. San Francisco 49ers: John Ross, WR, Washington
    I don’t understand why the 49ers avoided addressing the receiver position until late in the 2016 NFL Draft. How did they not realize that they have such a huge need in that area?

  3. Chicago Bears: Dion Dawkins, OT, Temple
    The Bears selected a quarterback in Round 1. Now, they’ll have to protect him. Chicago’s interior offensive line is great, but help is desperately needed at tackle.

    Pick change; previously Julie’n Davenport, OT

  4. Carolina Panthers: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
    The Panthers addressed their pass rush in the first round. Now, they’ll have to focus on finding help at cornerback, a position that happens to be a complete mess as a result of the Josh Norman release.



  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ethan Pocic, C/G, LSU
    The Jaguars are trying Luke Joeckel at guard, but it doesn’t appear as though he’s cutting it there either. They’ll have to spend an early selection on an upgrade.

    Pick change; previously Quinton Nelson, G

  6. Indianapolis Colts: Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee
    I’d have to think the Colts will be looking at a running back with one of their first few picks. Frank Gore won’t be around much longer, and Indianapolis doesn’t have a viable backup for him.

    Pick change; previously Royce Freeman, RB

  7. San Diego Chargers: Julie’n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
    The Chargers can’t count on King Dunlap staying healthy much longer, so they’ll have to spend an early draft choice on a new offensive tackle unless they sign someone in free agency.

    Pick change; previously Roderick Johnson, OT

  8. New York Jets: Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU
    The Jets will desperately be searching for a new cornerback this offseason, as they’ll cut Darrelle Revis at the first opportunity in which it’s lucrative for them to do so. I also have to imagine that Todd Bowles constantly has nightmares now where Buster Skrine is flagged for a penalty on every single down. Oh, wait, that actually happened.

    Pick change; previously Jourdan Lewis, CB



  9. Los Angeles Rams: Pat Elflein, C/G, Ohio State
    The Rams have been weak at center for what seems like decades. OK, it hasn’t been that long, but the position has been a problem for them for a very long time. It’s time to finally end that.

    Pick change; previously Ethan Pocic, G/C

  10. Miami Dolphins: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama
    It’s safe to say that the Dolphins haven’t exactly gotten what they had expected out of Jordan Cameron, though not all of that is his fault, given his concussion issues. Here’s a much-needed upgrade at tight end.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss
    The Buccaneers could stand to give Jameis Winston another weapon, and an upgrade at tight end would help in the wake of Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ release. Evan Engram has drawn comparisons to Jordan Reed.

    Pick change; previously Budda Baker, S

  12. New Orleans Saints: Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio State
    I still can’t believe the Saints signed James Laurinaitis. Did they not watch how horrible he was for the Rams? Seriously, what were they thinking?



  13. Baltimore Ravens: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon
    The Ravens could stand to pick up a new running back. Terrance West is just a middling talent, while Kenneth Dixon not being able to supplant West has to be discouraging.

    Pick change; previously Carl Lawson, DE/OLB

  14. Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Evans, S, Texas A&M
    The Bengals have major problems stopping the pass for multiple reasons, one of which is the safety play in the wake of Reggie Nelson’s departure.

    Pick change; previously Donnie Miles, S




  15. Arizona Cardinals: DeMarcus Walker, DE/DT, Florida State
    Calais Campbell will be a 31-year-old free agent entering next offseason. It goes without saying that the Cardinals will have to replace him if he leaves.

  16. Detroit Lions: Chris Wormley, DE/DT, Michigan
    Detroit’s defensive line is very strong on the edge (when Ziggy Ansah is in the lineup), but the team has yet to find a worthy replacement for Ndamukong Suh. The Lions’ inability to get to opposing quarterbacks needs to be fixed.

  17. Buffalo Bills: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
    The Bills can stand to upgrade a spot on their offensive line, and their right tackle position is in need of a boost.

    Pick change; previously Caleb Brantley, DT

  18. Cleveland Browns: Mason Cole, C, Michigan
    I have to imagine that the Browns are growing tired of Cameron Erving’s ineptitude at center. Here’s someone to challenge him.

    Pick change; previously Justin Evans, S

  19. Washington Redskins: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
    Matt Jones was just benched for fumbling thrice in a game, so if the Redskins’ coaching staff doesn’t trust him very much going forward, the front office could spend a second-day pick on a running back.

    Pick change; previously Alvin Kamara, RB

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
    The Eagles need to begin thinking about moving on from Jason Kelce, who is definitely one of the five worst starting centers in the NFL.

    Pick change; previously Pat Elflein, C/G



  21. Green Bay Packers: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
    Green Bay’s secondary has been exposed this season. Part of the reason is because of Sam Shields’ concussion, but the Packers will still have holes at the position once he returns to the field. That’s something that will need to be addressed this upcoming offseason.

    Pick change; previously Jake Butt, TE

  22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson
    DeAngelo Williams won’t be around much longer, so the Steelers will need a viable backup running back just in case Le’Veon Bell gets suspended again.

    Pick change; previously Nick Chubb, RB

  23. New York Giants: Davis Webb, QB, California
    Based on how Eli Manning has played lately, it seems like it’s time for the Giants to find a new quarterback that they can start at some point in the near future.



  24. Houston Texans: Jaleel Johnson, DT, Iowa
    The Texans were expected to target a replacement for Jared Crick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but never got a chance to. Now, they need a defensive end even more in the wake of the J.J. Watt situation.

    Pick change; previously Jarron Jones, DE/DT

  25. Atlanta Falcons: Dan Feeney, G, Indiana
    The Falcons could stand to upgrade Chris Chester, the one liability that they currently possess on their offensive line. Dan Feeney won’t be able to teach his teammates much until he’s a veteran, but he could provide an upgrade on the interior of the front.

    Pick change; previously Dorian Johnson, G

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Carl Lawson, DE/OLB, Auburn
    I thought there was a good chance that the Seahawks would upgrade their edge rush last offseason, but they didn’t pull the trigger. They can make amends for that at this juncture, and there’s never anything wrong with adding extra talented pass-rushers.

    Pick change; previously Davon Godchaux, DT

  27. Kansas City Chiefs: Anthony Walker, ILB, Northwestern
    The Chiefs could stand to add to their linebacking corps, as Derrick Johnson turns 34 around Thanksgiving and could begin to decline soon.

    Pick change; previously Dan Feeney, G

  28. Denver Broncos: Charles Walker, DT, Oklahoma
    Charles Walker would be a nice fit in Denver’s defense, as the Broncos have to bolster the interior of their front to improve against the rush.

  29. Minnesota Vikings: Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin
    I’m sure that if the Vikings had the cap space, they would’ve used this pick to trade for Joe Thomas. Alas, they do not, so they can try to remedy their awful tackle situation by picking one at this juncture.

  30. Oakland Raiders: Marquis Haynes, DE/OLB, Ole Miss
    The Raiders could stand to bolster their pass rush, as it’s unclear if Aldon Smith will be able to stay out of trouble going forward.

    Pick change; previously Wayne Gallman, RB

  31. Dallas Cowboys: Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
    Jason Witten doesn’t have much time remaining in the NFL, so the Cowboys could stand to use an early selection on a tight end.

    Pick change; previously Evan Engram, TE

  32. New England Patriots: Adam Bisnowaty, OT, Pittsburgh
    The Patriots have to find a tackle who can start in the future and provide much-needed depth in the present, as they’ve had injury issues at the position over the past couple of seasons.
