  1. Los Angeles Rams: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
    It was odd that the Rams traded down when Zay Jones fell into their laps. Jones would’ve been perfect for them. Here’s another second-round receiver who can help.

  2. New York Jets: Trey Adams, OT, Washington
    The Jets signed Kelvin Beachum to play left tackle for them. It’s a move that could work out if Beachum recovers from injury. If not, a second-round offensive tackle will be an option in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  3. San Francisco 49ers: Martez Ivey, G, Florida
    John Lynch did a good job in his first draft as the 49ers’ general manager. However, he had so many needs to address that everything couldn’t be fixed, so bolstering the offensive line slipped through the cracks.



  4. Chicago Bears: Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma
    The Bears came away with the worst prospective 2017 NFL Draft class. One of the many things they did wrong was fail to address their poor secondary.

  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tyrone Crowder, G, Clemson
    I can’t imagine Tom Coughlin not spending more resources on his offensive line, especially if he drafts a quarterback in the first round.

  6. Cleveland Browns: Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia
    The Browns have two picks in the first round and three selections in the second, so they are in position to add lots of talent to their roster. They can pick up a potential replacement for Christian Kirksey if he leaves via free agency.



  7. Cincinnati Bengals: Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech
    The Bengals didn’t pick up a cornerback in the draft, which was interesting because Darqueze Dennard is an impending free agent, and Pacman Jones’ age is a concern.

  8. Buffalo Bills: Matthew Thomas, LB, Florida State
    The Bills were looking to pick up a linebacker early in the 2017 NFL Draft, but failed to do so until the fifth round. They can make amends for that here.

  9. Baltimore Ravens: Brian Allen, C, Michigan State
    The Ravens traded Jeremy Zuttah to the 49ers, but never replaced him this offseason. Here’s their chance to do so.



  10. Minnesota Vikings: Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
    Laquon Treadwell was awful as a rookie. If he doesn’t show signs of improvement, the Vikings will undoubtedly look for someone who could challenge his spot.

  11. Washington Redskins: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson
    The Redskins didn’t draft a receiver until late, so they may decide to target a replacement for Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson earlier in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  12. Indianapolis Colts: Ogbonnia Okoronwko, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Colts acquired Tarell Basham in the third round of the draft, but I don’t think they can be done obtaining edge rushers.



  13. Carolina Panthers: Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama
    The Panthers appear set to lose Star Lotulelei next offseason. They have Vernon Butler ready to take over next to Kawann Short, but there’s really nothing else at the position.

  14. Denver Broncos: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
    The Broncos showed interest in Christian McCaffrey, so perhaps they’ll pursue a second-day running back to provide some insurance behind C.J. Anderson.




  15. Cleveland Browns: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon
    I had the Browns selecting Saquon Barkley in a previous update. This is another running back option, as Isaiah Crowell will be a free agent next spring.

  16. Arizona Cardinals: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
    The Cardinals drafted Chad Williams, but they need another receiver with Michael Floyd gone, John Brown hitting free agency next spring, and Larry Fitzgerald nearing retirement.

  17. Miami Dolphins: Jake Browning, QB, Washington
    The jury is still out on Ryan Tannehill, so I could see the Dolphins taking a shot on a quarterback in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

  18. New York Giants: Brock Ruble, OT, Florida State
    Will this finally be the year that the Giants address their pedestrian offensive line? They have to do it eventually.

  19. San Francisco 49ers: David Moa, DE, Boise State
    Solomon Thomas appears to be a great pick, but the 49ers aren’t done addressing their weak pass rush. They can use New Orleans’ pick to fix that need.

  20. Dallas Cowboys: Derrick Nnadi, DT, Florida State
    The Cowboys had a need at defensive tackle, but didn’t address it until late in the 2017 NFL Draft. Here’s a chance for them to make amends for that.



  21. Los Angeles Chargers: Donnie Miles, S, North Carolina
    It was surprising to see the Chargers pass on Malik Hooker after he fell into their laps. An early safety could be in play in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ronald Jones, RB, USC
    The Buccaneers are taking a chance on Doug Martin reverting back to 2015 form. We’ll see if that happens. If not, they’ll be looking for a running back early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Shaun Dion Hamilton, ILB, Alabama
    The Chiefs will be on the lookout for Derrick Johnson’s possible replacement in one of the next couple of offseasons. This could be it.



  24. Detroit Lions: Mike McCray, DE, Michigan
    It was surprising that the Lions passed on some potent edge rushers to add a bookend across from Ziggy Ansah. They could do this early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  25. Seattle Seahawks: Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State
    The Seahawks, like the Giants, have to finally address their horrid offensive line at some point. Tackle help is desperately needed.

  26. Tennessee Titans: Marquis Haynes, DE/OLB, Ole Miss
    Brian Orakpo won’t be around much longer, so the Titans will have to find a successor for him in one of the next couple of offseasons.

  27. Atlanta Falcons: Vita Vea, NT, Washington
    The Falcons have three defensive linemen set to hit free agency next spring, so this is an area they could attack in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jerry Tillery, DE/DT, Notre Dame
    Speaking of teams that have defensive linemen headed for free agency, the Steelers may have to replace Stephon Tuitt.

  29. Cleveland Browns: Billy Price, G, Ohio State
    The Browns did a good job of bolstering their offensive line this offseason, but they could lose John Greco to free agency next offseason.

  30. Oakland Raiders: Christian LaCouture, DE/DT, LSU
    The Raiders were expected to add multiple defensive tackles in this past draft, but only took one until very late. They’ll have to address this position soon.

  31. Green Bay Packers: Mason Cole, C, Michigan
    The Packers lost one center this offseason, and they could end up seeing the other depart, as Corey Linsley is a free agent next spring.

  32. New England Patriots: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State
    The Patriots haven’t traded Malcolm Butler yet. It doesn’t sound like he’ll be on the team much longer, so here’s a replacement.
