  1. New England Patriots: Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
    The Patriots will be getting Derek Rivers back from injury next year, but they may decide that he’s not enough to bolster their pass rush. Getting a third potent edge rusher to go along with Rivers and Trey Flowers would make sense.

  2. Cleveland Browns: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
    The Browns could easily spend the first-overall pick on Saquon Barkley. If they don’t, they’ll need someone else to upgrade the disappointing Isaiah Crowell.

  3. New York Giants: Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
    Shane Vereen is an impending free agent, so the Giants will need a new running back to perhaps complement Orleans Darkwa. It’s unclear if Darkwa is even good enough to be the starter, but he’s the best the Giants have. That would change with Bryce Love, who has shown some dynamic play-making ability as Christian McCaffrey’s replacement.



  4. Indianapolis Colts: Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson
    It’s not exactly breaking news that the Colts need offensive line help. They’ll have to spend an early pick on a blocker to help protect Andrew Luck.

  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
    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.

  6. Oakland Raiders: Matthew Thomas, LB, Florida State
    The Raiders have some of the worst linebacker play in the entire NFL, so this is an area they’ll need to focus on at some point next offseason.



  7. Los Angeles Chargers: DeShon Elliott, S, Texas
    Everyone thought the Chargers would select Malik Hooker No. 7 overall. They went with Mike Williams instead, so here’s their chance to obtain an upgrade at safety.

    Pick change; previously Billy Price, C/G

  8. Chicago Bears: Iman Marshall, CB, USC
    The Bears have a pair of talented young safeties in Adrian Amos and Eddie Jackson. They could use some youth at cornerback, as Prince Amukamara doesn’t seem like he’s in the long-term plans. He’s an impending free agent anyway.

    Pick change; previously Equamineous St. Brown, WR

  9. New York Jets: Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
    The Jets missed out on the top quarterbacks in this class, so they’ll have to find a signal-caller in Round 2.

    Many may not know the name yet, but according to Charlie Campbell, Clayton Thorson been getting some first-round consideration. Read more in the NFL Hot Press.



  10. Cincinnati Bengals: Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State
    No one should be surprised if the Bengals double up on offensive tackles in the first couple of rounds in the 2018 NFL Draft, based on how the offensive line has performed.

  11. Denver Broncos: Timon Parris, OT, Stony Brook
    After seeing the Broncos struggle against the Chargers, I think Denver fans would riot if their team didn’t use an early draft pick on an offensive tackle.

  12. Cleveland Browns: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
    The Browns are so desperate for receivers that they could use two choices in the first couple of rounds on wideouts.

    Pick change; previously Christian Kirk, WR



  13. Detroit Lions: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
    Ameer Abdullah is extremely talented, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. If he gets banged up again this year, Detroit could opt to move on with another running back.

  14. Washington Redskins: D.J. Chark, WR, LSU
    Terrelle Pryor has struggled thus far, and he was signed to a 1-year deal anyway. I can’t see the Redskins retaining him if his poor play continues.

  15. Arizona Cardinals: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
    As mentioned in the first round, the Cardinals have to focus on finding a second-day quarterback they really like to be a successor for Carson Palmer.




  16. Baltimore Ravens: Tony Brown, CB, Alabama
    Unless Brandon Carr takes a big pay cut, I can’t see him being back next year. The Ravens could pursue another cornerback early in the draft if Carr leaves.

    Pick change; previously Ronnie Harrison, S

  17. Miami Dolphins: Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma
    The Dolphins could add another offensive weapon. Addressing tight end makes sense, as I don’t have much hope for Julius Thomas.

  18. Atlanta Falcons: Trenton Thompson, DT, Georgia
    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.

  19. Green Bay Packers: Kevin Toliver, CB, LSU
    The Packers almost have to keep picking cornerbacks until they get a talented one, right? It’s amazing how bad their pass defense is.

  20. Dallas Cowboys: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
    The Cowboys could use another threat in the receiving corps, and they’ve shown that they’re willing to take chances on troubled players. Antonio Callway has some major off-the-field issues, but some team could give him a shot in the second round.

  21. Jacksonville Jaguars: Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
    The Jaguars could use a new tight end, as they don’t have anything at the position in the wake of the Julius Thomas trade.



  22. Tennessee Titans: Josh Sweat, DE/OLB, Florida State
    Brian Orakpo appears to be slowing down, while Kevin Dodd hasn’t shown that he can be an NFL-caliber player yet. There’s a good chance the Titans spend an early draft choice on an edge rusher to start across from Derrick Morgan.

  23. Carolina Panthers: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
    The Panthers traded Kelvin Benjamin, so they’ll need a new receiver to go along with Devin Funchess and Curtis Samuel.

    Pick change; previously Royce Freeman, RB



  24. New York Jets: Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
    Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are gone. Jermaine Kearse and Quincy Enunwa are not viable starters. The Jets need help at receiver. It was disappointing to see Courtland Sutton blanked against TCU, but he should still be chosen in the first two rounds.

  25. Buffalo Bills: Akrum Wadley, RB, Iowa
    It’s unclear why the Bills got rid of Jonathan Williams in favor of Mike Tolbert, but they’ll need to find another young running back behind LeSean McCoy.

  26. San Francisco 49ers: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
    The 49ers have just one viable receiver in Pierre Garcon. That definitely needs to change if Jimmy Garoppolo is to have success in San Francisco.

    Pick change; previously Duke Ejiofor, DE

  27. Buffalo Bills: Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia
    The Bills need to improve the right side of the offensive line. Perhaps Dion Dawkins will be able to properly replace Jordan Mills sometime soon. Right guard John Miller must also be upgraded.

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon
    The Steelers could stand to obtain a viable backup behind Le’Veon Bell.

    Pick change; previously Mason Rudolph, QB

  29. New England Patriots: Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State
    The Patriots desperately need to address their linebacking corps, which has been an utter mess outside of Dont’a Hightower.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Smith, LB

  30. Minnesota Vikings: Tyquan Lewis, DE, Ohio State
    Brian Robison has stated that he’s going to retire after 2018, so the Vikings will need some new talent behind Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter.

    Pick change; previously Iman Marshall, CB

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Simmie Cobbs Jr., WR, Indiana
    The Chiefs could use a second receiver to play across from Tyreek Hill.

  32. Cleveland Browns: Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma
    The Browns need to continue to attack their poor defense. If the loss to the Colts was any indication, they desperately need an upgrade at cornerback.
