Cincinnati Bengals: Lamical Perine, RB, Florida
The Bengals have some expiring contracts coming up for running backs, so they could use a mid-round pick on depth.
Lamical Perine is a 218-pound running back who gets lots of yards after contact.

Take a look:
Pick change; previously Collin Johnson, WR
Carolina Panthers: Ben Bredeson, G, Michigan
Teddy Bridgewater isn't as mobile as Cam Newton, so the Panthers need to make sure he's more protected than their previous quarterback was.
Ben Bredeson has great technique and decent quickness.
Pick change; previously DaVon Hamilton, DT
Detroit Lions: Shyheim Carter, CB, Alabama
The Lions could address their secondary as early as No. 3 overall with Jeff Okudah. They'll need two new corners in the wake of the Darius Slay trade.
New York Giants: Kendrick Rogers, WR, Texas A&M
The Giants are expected to add a receiver in the middle or late rounds.
Kendrick Rogers has flashed some major upside, but he'll need to show improved durability to be chosen in the first round.
Pick change; previously Yasir Durant, OT
Los Angeles Chargers: Evan Weaver, LB, California
The Chargers have great parts to their defense, but they can stand to improve their linebacking corps.
Pick change; previously Scottie Phillips, RB
Carolina Panthers: L'Jarius Sneed, S/CB, Louisiana Tech
The Panthers had some horrible play from their safeties last year, so some help is needed.
Pick change; previously Calvin Throckmorton, OL
Miami Dolphins: J.J. Taylor, RB, Arizona
Given the lack of talent at running back, I could see the Dolphins drafting two players at the position.
J.J. Taylor could be used like Tarik Cohen in the NFL.
Miami Dolphins: J.R. Reed, S, Georgia
The Dolphins need multiple upgrades at safety, given their dire situation.
Pick change; previously Lavert Hill, CB
Minnesota Vikings: Shaun Bradley, LB, Temple
The Vikings will be looking for linebacker depth in the middle rounds.
Pick change; previously Tyre Phillips, OT
San Francisco 49ers: Kindle Vildor, CB, Georgia Southern
The 49ers could stand to add some cornerback depth, given Richard Sherman's age.
Pick change; previously Ben Bartch, G
Jacksonville Jaguars: Khaleke Hudson, LB/S, Michigan
The Jaguars could use depth at linebacker on top of a new starter.
Pick change; previously Malik Harrison, LB
New York Jets: Krys Barnes, LB, UCLA
The Jets were very weak at linebacker last year because of injuries. Here's some insurance.
Pick change; previously Tyler Johnson, WR
Las Vegas Raiders: Jake Luton, QB, Oregon State
The Raiders could use an early- or mid-round pick on a quarterback to groom behind Derek Carr.
Pick change; previously Cole McDonald, QB
Indianapolis Colts: Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
The Colts like to use multi-tight end formations, so they'll need to replace Eric Ebron.
Pick change; previously Christian Rector, DE
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Isaiah Coulter, WR, Rhode Island
The Buccaneers may want to add another receiver to go along with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, just in case one of them gets hurt.
Pick change; previously Trishton Jackson, WR
Washington Redskins: Essang Bassey, CB, Wake Forest
The Redskins traded Quinton Dunbar for nothing, so they should probably make sure they get a replacement at some point.
Pick change; previously Trey Adams, OT
Chicago Bears: Ben Bartch, G, St. John's
The Bears lost Kyle Long to retirement this offseason, so they'll need to replace him.
Pick change; previously Calvin Throckmorton, G/C/OT
Dallas Cowboys: Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn
The Cowboys could use an insurance policy for Tyron Smith, whose health seems to be declining because of the infamous bulging disc.
Jack Driscoll needs to get stronger for the NFL.
Pick change; previously Nick Tiano, QB
Jacksonville Jaguars: Scottie Phillips, RB, Ole Miss
The Jaguars now want to trade Leonard Fournette, so I imagine they'll spend at least one of their picks on a running back.
Scottie Phillips has some questions about being a three-down runner, but he has a good combination of power and quickness.
Pick change; previously Darrell Taylor, DE/OLB
Detroit Lions: Charlie Heck, OT, North Carolina
The Lions signed a backup tackle to a mega contract this offseason, so they should at least find an insurance policy.
Pick change; previously Shaquille Quarterman, LB
Buffalo Bills: Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Miami
The Bills could select a linebacker on Day 3 in the wake of Lorenzo Alexander's retirement.
Pick change; previously Michael Pinckney, LB
Philadelphia Eagles: Michael Ojemudia, CB, Iowa
The Eagles effectively traded in Ronald Darby for Darius Slay, but they needed a cornerback upgrade even before that.
Pick change; previously Kindle Vildor, CB
New Orleans Saints: Harrison Bryant, TE, Florida Atlantic
Jared Cook doesn't have much time remaining in the NFL, so the Saints will want to find a young tight end.
Pick change; previously Jacob Breeland, TE
Baltimore Ravens: David Reese, LB, Florida
Multiple linebackers make sense for the Ravens, given that they're hurting at the position.
Houston Texans: Brandon Bowen, OT/G, Ohio State
The Texans must find as many upgrades as possible to their dreadful offensive line.
New England Patriots: Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State
Sony Michel and Damien Harris haven't lived up to their potential, so the Patriots might select a running back in the middle rounds.
Eno Benjamin has shown better receiving ability, so he could be chosen in the third round.
Pick change; previously Kalija Lipscomb, WR
Miami Dolphins: Matt Bushman, TE, BYU
The Dolphins plan on using Mike Gesicki in the slot, so they need an inline tight end.
Tennessee Titans: Robert Windsor, DT, Penn State
The Titans traded Jurrell Casey to the Broncos, so they'll need to find at least one player to fill his shoes.
Pick change; previously John Hightower, WR
Green Bay Packers: Kalija Lipscomb, WR, Vanderbilt
Here's receiver No. 3 for the Packers, who are desperate at the position.
Kalija Lipscomb has drawn some rave reviews from NFL team sources.
Pick change; previously Quintez Cephus, WR
San Francisco 49ers: Chauncey Rivers, DE, Mississippi State
The 49ers love strengthening their defensive line, so this can't be a surprise.
Pick change; previously Ben Bartch, G
Kansas City Chiefs: Josiah Scott, CB, Michigan State
The Chiefs have a big weakness at cornerback, so they could address the position twice.
Pick change; previously Lavert Hill, CB
Denver Broncos: Trevis Gipson, DE, Tulsa
The Broncos seem to be in the market for edge-rushing depth, so they'll likely address that in the middle rounds.
Pick change; previously Trystan Colon-Castillo, C/G
Dallas Cowboys: Kamren Curl, S, Arkansas
The Cowboys need a long-term answer at safety, so they could address the position at this juncture.
