  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Hakeem Adeniji, G, Kansas
    Cincinnati has to continue to upgrade its offensive line, which has been problematic over the past several years.

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

    A Safety and a Field Goal



  2. Carolina Panthers: Robert Windsor, DT, Penn State
    The Panthers can turn the Kyle Allen pick into someone who can help their defensive line in the wake of Gerald McCoy’s departure.

    Pick change; previously DaVon Hamilton, DT



  3. 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.



  4. New York Giants: Yasir Durant, OT, Missouri
    The Giants should add multiple blockers to make sure Daniel Jones is as well protected as possible.

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





  5. Los Angeles Chargers: Scottie Phillips, RB, Ole Miss
    The Chargers will look into adding a new running back to pair with Austin Ekeler.

    Scottie Phillips has some questions about being a three-down runner, but he has a good combination of power and quickness.





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



  7. 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.





  8. Miami Dolphins: Lavert Hill, CB, Michigan
    The Dolphins have two stellar cornerbacks, but could use a third talented corner in the slot.



  9. Minnesota Vikings: Tyre Phillips, OT, Mississippi State
    The Vikings could stand to add some more talent to their mediocre offensive line.





  10. San Francisco 49ers: DaVon Hamilton, DT, Ohio State
    The 49ers could take their DeForest Buckner replacement as early as No. 13 overall.

    Pick change; previously Robert Windsor, DT



  11. Jacksonville Jaguars: Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State
    The Jaguars could use depth at linebacker on top of a new starter.

    Pick change; previously Ben Cleveland, G








  12. New York Jets: Stephen Guidry, WR, Mississippi State
    The Jets could double up on receivers, given the lack of talent at the position.

    Stephen Guidry has great size (6-4, 190) and nice upside.



  13. Las Vegas Raiders: Cole McDonald, QB, Hawaii
    The Raiders could use an early- or mid-round pick on a quarterback to groom behind Derek Carr.





  14. Indianapolis Colts: Christian Rector, DE, USC
    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.



  15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Trishton Jackson, WR, Syracuse
    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.






  16. 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.



  17. Chicago Bears: Ben Cleveland, G, Georgia
    The Bears lost Kyle Long to retirement this offseason, so they’ll need to replace him.

    Pick change; previously Malik Harrison, LB



  18. Dallas Cowboys: Nick Tiano, QB, UT-Chattanooga
    Both of Dallas’ quarterbacks are entering their contract years, so the team may want to spend a mid- or late-round pick on a quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Jared Hilbers, OT



  19. Jacksonville Jaguars: Darrell Taylor, DE/OLB, Tennessee
    There’s been some chatter about Yannick Ngakoue being traded, so here’s an insurance policy if that happens.





  20. Detroit Lions: Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Miami
    The Lions could strengthen their linebacking corps as early as No. 3 overall with Isaiah Simmons. They could stand to add two players at the position.

    Pick change; previously Evan Weaver, LB



  21. Buffalo Bills: Michael Pinckney, LB, Miami
    The Bills could select a linebacker on Day 3 in the wake of Lorenzo Alexander’s retirement.





  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Stanford Samuels, S/CB, Florida State
    The Eagles may select two safeties with Malcolm Jenkins gone.



  23. New Orleans Saints: Jacob Breeland, TE, Oregon
    Jared Cook doesn’t have much time remaining in the NFL, so the Saints will want to find a young tight end.



  24. Baltimore Ravens: David Reese, LB, Florida
    Multiple linebackers make sense for the Ravens, given that they’re hurting at the position.



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



  26. New England Patriots: Kalija Lipscomb, WR, Vanderbilt
    The Patriots obviously need to find help for their poor receiving corps.

    Kalija Lipscomb has drawn some rave reviews from NFL team sources.



  27. Miami Dolphins: Matt Bushman, TE, BYU
    The Dolphins plan on using Mike Gesicki in the slot, so they need an inline tight end.



  28. Tennessee Titans: John Hightower, WR, Boise State
    Corey Davis has disappointed thus far, so the Titans could add a receiver at some point.



  29. Green Bay Packers: Quintez Cephus, WR, Wisconsin
    Here’s receiver No. 3 for the Packers, who are desperate at the position.





  30. San Francisco 49ers: Michael Ojemudia, CB, Iowa
    The 49ers could stand to add some cornerback depth, given Richard Sherman’s age.



  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Binjimen Victor, WR, Ohio State
    It doesn’t sound like Sammy Watkins will be back, so the Chiefs may take a replacement on Day 3.



  32. Denver Broncos: Trystan Colon-Castillo, C/G, Missouri
    The Broncos have one of the weaker offensive lines in the NFL, so several upgrades will be needed.



  33. Dallas Cowboys: Kamren Curl, S, Arkansas
    The Cowboys need a long-term answer at safety, so they could address the position at this juncture.
