  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Yasir Durant, OT, Missouri
    Cincinnati has to continue to upgrade its offensive line, which has been problematic over the past several years.

    Yasir Durant has work ethic problems, but is a talented prospect.

  2. Washington Redskins: Trey Adams, OT, Washington
    Trey Adams would be a first-round pick if he didn’t have health issues. He’s worth a gamble in Round 5, and the Redskins need to address their offensive line.



  3. Detroit Lions: Essang Bassey, CB, Wake Forest
    The Lions could address their secondary as early as No. 3 overall with Jeff Okudah. If they trade Darius Slay, they’ll need two new corners.

    Pick change; previously Stanford Samuels, CB/S



  4. New York Giants: Marcus Norman, OT, South Florida
    The Giants should add multiple blockers to make sure Daniel Jones is as well protected as possible.





  5. Los Angeles Chargers: Jared Hilbers, OT, Washington
    The Chargers need multiple offensive linemen to protect their new quarterback.



  6. Carolina Panthers: Calvin Throckmorton, G/C/OT, Oregon
    The Panthers need to bolster their offensive line so they can protect the injury-prone Cam Newton as well as possible.





  7. Arizona Cardinals: Jordan Fuller, S, Ohio State
    The Cardinals must continue to bolster the middle of their defense to avoid what happened last year.

    Pick change; previously Marquez Callaway, WR



  8. 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.





  9. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dalton Keene, TE, Virginia Tech
    Vance McDonald has been a big disappointment thus far, so the Steelers could aim to upgrade him this offseason.



  10. Buffalo Bills: Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn
    The Bills could stand to add some more talent to their mediocre offensive line.

    Jack Driscoll needs to get stronger for the NFL.





  11. San Francisco 49ers: Quintez Cephus, WR, Wisconsin
    Emmanuel Sanders is an impending free agent, so the 49ers will need to find a new receiver if they don’t re-sign him.



  12. Atlanta Falcons: Marquez Callaway, WR, Tennessee
    The Falcons traded away Mohamed Sanu, so they’ll likely target a receiver at some point.



    Pick change; previously Kalija Lipscomb, WR








  13. New York Jets: Binjimen Victor, WR, Ohio State
    The Jets could double up on receivers, given the lack of talent at the position.



  14. Las Vegas Raiders: K.J. Costello, QB, Stanford
    The Raiders could use an early- or mid-round pick on a quarterback to groom behind Derek Carr.





  15. Indianapolis Colts: Daelin Hayes, DE, Notre Dame
    The Colts are likely to add multiple defensive linemen in this draft, as they need to improve their pass rush.

    Daelin Hayes has drawn rave reviews for his speed and athleticism while rushing on the edge. He has loads of potential.



  16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nate Stanley, QB, Iowa
    If the Buccaneers sign Philip Rivers, they’ll need to find a young receiver to groom behind the long-time Charger.






  17. Miami Dolphins: Chauncey Rivers, DE, Mississippi State
    The Dolphins don’t have any sort of pass rush, so they’ll need to spend a second- or third-day pick on a defensive end.



  18. Chicago Bears: Hakeem Adeniji, G, Kansas
    Kyle Long has retired, so the Bears will need to focus on finding a new guard.

    Hakeem Adeniji may have to move to guard. He projects best in a zone-blocking scheme.



  19. Dallas Cowboys: Matt Hennessy, C, Temple
    It wouldn’t hurt the Cowboys if they found an insurance policy for Travis Frederick.



  20. Jacksonville Jaguars: Shyheim Carter, CB, Alabama
    The Jaguars could stand to add a second cornerback in this draft, given their sudden big need at the position.





  21. Philadelphia Eagles: Erroll Thompson, LB, Mississippi State
    The Eagles needed linebacking help even before they cut Nigel Bradham.

    Erroll Thompson projects as a two-down run defender.

    Pick change; previously Reggie Robinson, CB



  22. Buffalo Bills: David Woodward, LB, Utah State
    The Bills could select a linebacker on Day 3 in the wake of Lorenzo Alexander’s retirement.





  23. Philadelphia Eagles: Jabari Zuniga, DE, Florida
    The Eagles have yet to bolster their defensive line, which is something they’re always expected to do.

    Jabari Zuniga isn’t strong enough for the NFL quite yet, but he has some potential.



  24. New Orleans Saints: Matt Bushman, TE, BYU
    Jared Cook doesn’t have much time remaining in the NFL, so the Saints will want to find a young tight end.



  25. Baltimore Ravens: D.J. Wonnum, DE/OLB, South Carolina
    The Ravens could double up on edge rushers if Matthew Judon departs via free agency.

    D.J. Wonnum has impressive speed and athleticism on the edge.



  26. Houston Texans: Brandon Bowen, OT/G, Ohio State
    The Texans must find as many upgrades as possible to their dreadful offensive line.



  27. Detroit Lions: Scottie Phillips, RB, Ole Miss
    The Lions can’t really trust Kerryon Johnson, so perhaps they’ll use a mid-round pick 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.



  28. Los Angeles Rams: Joe Gaziano, DE/DT, Northwestern
    The Rams could add multiple defensive linemen if they lose Michael Brockers, which is expected.

    Joe Gaziano has been a productive, tough member of Northwestern’s defensive line. He projects as a 3-4 defensive end.



  29. Tennessee Titans: Ke’Shawn Vaughn, RB, Vanderbilt
    I could see the Titans adding a running back on Day 3, just in case Derrick Henry gets fat and happy.

    Ke’Shawn Vaughn has great strength to run through defenders.



  30. Green Bay Packers: Da’Von Hamilton, DE/DT, Ohio State
    The Packers were gashed on the ground in the NFC Championship, so here’s some help in that regard.

    Pick change; previously Isaiah Hodgins, WR





  31. San Francisco 49ers: Darrynton Evans, RB, Appalachian State
    The 49ers will likely lose Matt Breida this offseason, so they may add a running back on the third day of the draft.



  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jeff Thomas, WR, Miami
    The Chiefs could lose a couple of receivers to free agency this spring, so they may take a replacement on Day 3.
