  1. New England Patriots: Chris Warren, RB, Texas
    Chris Warren seems like a good fit in New England’s scheme, so he could be a late-round pick of theirs.

  2. Pittsburgh Steelers: Joel Iyiegbuniwe, LB, Western Kentucky
    Here’s a player who can provide linebacker depth and special-teams help.

  3. Indianapolis Colts: Khalil McKenzie, DT, Tennessee
    The Colts lost Johnathan Hankins this offseason, so here’s someone new for their 4-3.



  4. Houston Texans: Chris Worley, LB, Ohio State
    The Texans could use a late-round pick on a linebacker with Brian Cushing gone.



  5. San Francisco 49ers: Frank Ginda, LB, San Jose State
    The 49ers needed linebacker help even before Reuben Foster got into legal trouble.

  6. Chicago Bears: Danny Johnson, CB, Southern
    Here’s some more cornerback depth for a team that must stop Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford and now Kirk Cousins.

  7. Minnesota Vikings: Matthew Gono, G, Wesley
    The Vikings will want to use numerous picks on the offensive line to make sure Kirk Cousins is well protected.



  8. Seattle Seahawks: Ito Smith, RB, Southern Miss
    The Seahawks could use multiple picks on running backs, given how anemic their ground attack is.

  9. Miami Dolphins: Dave Steinmetz, OT, Purdue
    The Dolphins need to do something – scratch that, many things – about their atrocious offensive line.

  10. Oakland Raiders: Darrel Williams, RB, LSU
    The Raiders have some aging running backs on their roster, so they’ll need to add some youth at the position.

  11. Miami Dolphins: Dave Steinmetz, OT, Purdue
    The Dolphins need to do something – scratch that, many things – about their atrocious offensive line.



  12. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kenny Young, LB, UCLA
    The Jaguars could stand to add a linebacker in the seventh round in the wake of Paul Posluszny’s retirement.

  13. Washington Redskins: Daniel Carlson, K, Auburn
    Will this finally be the year the Redskins fix their kicking woes?



  14. Green Bay Packers: J’Mon Moore, WR, Missouri
    It seems like the Packers will use multiple selections to help their receiving corps.

  15. Kansas City Chiefs: Foye Oluokon, LB, Yale
    The Chiefs could spend multiple picks on linebackers with Derrick Johnson gone.



  16. Carolina Panthers: Tre Herndon, CB, Vanderbilt
    Given how desperate the Panthers are to upgrade their secondary, they may want to use multiple picks on cornerbacks.

  17. New York Jets: Vyncint Smith, WR, Limestone
    The Jets need as many offensive threats as possible for their rookie quarterback.




  18. Dallas Cowboys: Christian Sam, LB, Arizona State
    Despite the Leighton Vander Esch projection, the Cowboys could use another pick on a linebacker for depth purposes.

  19. Detroit Lions: Kentavius Street, DT, N.C. State
    Once again, the Lions need all the help up front that they can get.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Dejon Allen, G, Hawaii
    I’d say it would be a mistake if the Cardinals left the 2018 NFL Draft without spending multiple picks on offensive linemen.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Thomas, TE, Mississippi State
    Jimmy Graham hasn’t exactly been the healthiest player over the past several seasons.

  22. San Francisco 49ers: Byron Pringle, WR, Kansas State
    Some late-round receiving help makes sense for the 49ers, who need to add more weapons.

  23. Washington Redskins: Quin Blanding, S, Virginia
    Here’s someone who can help the Redskins’ special teams. More secondary depth doesn’t hurt either.



  24. Carolina Panthers: Jermaine Carter, LB, Maryland
    The Panthers will want some linebacker depth, especially with Thomas Davis suspended for the first four games.

  25. Kansas City Chiefs: Tremon Smith, CB, Central Arkansas
    The Chiefs could spend a late-round pick on cornerback depth, as their secondary is a bit of a concern.



  26. Atlanta Falcons: Kurt Benkert, QB, Virginia
    The Falcons need to develop a solid No. 2 quarterback behind Matt Ryan. They’ve shown interest in Kurt Benkert.

  27. New Orleans Saints: Cedrick Wilson, WR, Boise State
    The Saints could add a receiver in the late rounds in case Cameron Meredith’s health doesn’t hold up.

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Richie James, WR, Middle Tennessee State
    Another late-round receiver makes sense, as the Steelers may not have Martavis Bryant much longer.

  29. Jacksonville Jaguars: Skai Moore, LB, South Carolina
    Another late-round linebacker pick makes sense for depth and special-teams purposes.

  30. Seattle Seahawks: Poona Ford, DT, Texas
    The Seahawks have to use numerous picks on the defensive line after losing several players there this offseason.

  31. Cincinnati Bengals: Tegray Scales, LB, Indiana
    The Bengals could use one of their seventh-round picks to find linebacker depth.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Keith Kirkwood, WR, Temple
    The Seahawks will be looking to add receiving depth after losing Paul Richardson this offseason.

  33. Los Angeles Chargers: Aaron Evans, OT, Central Florida
    I don’t think Philip Rivers would ever argue with his front office adding offensive line help.

  34. Cincinnati Bengals: Jacob Martin, DE, Temple
    There’s nothing wrong with adding as much pass-rushing depth as possible, and the Bengals could use help in that department.



  35. Cincinnati Bengals: Jeremy Reaves, S, South Alabama
    Cincinnati could also use better depth in the secondary.

  36. Arizona Cardinals: Parry Nickerson, CB, Tulane
    Arizona needs some cornerback depth, which they could address late.

  37. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Roc Thomas, RB, Jacksonville State
    The Buccaneers are desperate to upgrade their rushing attack, so they could spend multiple picks on runners.

  38. Atlanta Falcons: Donnie Ernsberger, FB, Western Michigan
    The Falcons seem like they’ll be looking for a new fullback at some point on Day 3.
