  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Jacob Phillips, LB, LSU
    The Bengals have the worst linebacking corps in the NFL, so they’ll need to make multiple upgrades to that area this offseason.

    Jacob Phillips has been an extremely productive linebacker for LSU. The physical defender was a five-star recruit.

  2. Washington Redskins: Troy Pride, CB, Notre Dame
    Josh Norman’s play has completely fallen off, and he’s now one of the worst cornerbacks in the league. The Redskins will need someone new to start across from Quinton Dunbar.

    Troy Pride is expected to run 4.3 at the combine.



  3. New York Jets: Nick Harris, C, Washington
    The Jets were so desperate at center that they brought in Ryan Kalil prior to the season. Kalil ended up being terrible, so the Jets will need to find a new center.

    Nick Harris is a bit undersized and lacks length, but he’s a good player who could be a third-round pick.



  4. Miami Dolphins: Kendrick Rogers, WR, Texas A&M
    I’m sure the Dolphins will use their team option on DeVante Parker this offseason, but I don’t know if they’ll re-sign him beyond 2020. Here’s a potential starting receiver for 2021 and beyond.

    Kendrick Rogers has flashed some major upside, but he’ll need to show improved durability to be chosen in the first round.





  5. Detroit Lions: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
    Matt Patricia needs a centerpiece for his defense, as the Lions have struggled to cover in space for quite a while.

    Dylan Moses, a former five-star recruit, missed a chunk of his freshman campaign, but was very productive as a sophomore. Unfortunately, Moses tore his ACL early in 2019.



  6. Arizona Cardinals: Ashtyn Davis, S, California
    The Cardinals have been atrocious versus tight ends this year, so they’ll need to acquire multiple players to help address this weakness.





  7. Los Angeles Chargers: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    The Chargers have a slow linebacking corps that has struggled in coverage this year, so they’ll need to bolster this area.

    Paddy Fisher was unbelievably productive for Northwestern despite being a freshman. He’s become one of the top linebackers in the Big Ten.



  8. Denver Broncos: Justin Madubuike, DT, Texas A&M
    Derek Wolfe always seems to get hurt, so the Broncos could take a defensive tackle in Rounds 2-4 of the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Justin Madubuike was a disruptive force in the interior of the Aggies’ defensive line this past season, logging 11.5 TFLs and 5.5 sacks.

    Pick change; previously Marvin Wilson, DT





  9. Carolina Panthers: Kamren Curl, S, Arkansas
    The Panthers improved their pass defense this season, but Tre Boston, one of the team’s starting safeties, will be entering free agency in March. Carolina will need a replacement for him if he departs.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Elliott, DT



  10. Atlanta Falcons: Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
    The Falcons can’t count on Devonta Freeman staying healthy, so they may want a better backup running back than the pedestrian Brian Hill.





  11. New York Jets: Curtis Weaver, DE/OLB, Boise State
    The Jets don’t have much of an edge rush, so they’ll need to find someone who can help them get after the quarterback.



  12. Jacksonville Jaguars: Shyheum Carter, CB, Alabama
    Jacksonville’s secondary took a massive hit when the team traded Jalen Ramsey, so here’s a new potential starting cornerback.








  13. Cleveland Browns: Collin Johnson, WR, Texas
    Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t seem to be too happy in Cleveland. Perhaps the Browns will draft some insurance.

    Collin Johnson has great upside and athleticism for someone with his frame (6-6, 212).



  14. Las Vegas Raiders: Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State
    The Raiders could use another presence on the defensive line to aid a weak pass rush.

    Pick change; previously David Reese, LB





  15. Indianapolis Colts: Tarik Black, WR, Michigan
    The Colts still have major issues at receiver when T.Y. Hilton misses action. They’ll address this issue one of these years.

    Tarik Black has great size (6-3, 215) and speed, but hasn’t been able to stay healthy.



  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
    The Raiders traded away Gareon Conley, so they’ll be in search for more cornerback help to aid their poor secondary. Bryce Hall is a tall (6-1, 200) and fast cornerback.






  17. Philadelphia Eagles: Stephen Guidry, WR, Mississippi State
    Considering the durability issues of the Eagles’ top receivers, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if they use multiple selections on the position.

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



  18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
    The Buccaneers have endured issues at cornerback for years. Perhaps they’ll finally fix those problems this offseason. Kristian Fulton has first-round talent, but an extensive injury history could keep him out of the opening frame.



  19. Tennessee Titans: Marlon Davidson, DE/OLB, Auburn
    Cameron Wake was great for the Titans prior to suffering a season-ending injury. He’s obviously not a long-term solution, however.



  20. Los Angeles Rams: Tommy Kraemer, G, Notre Dame
    The Rams continue to bolster their offensive line, as they have the worst blocking unit in the NFL (excluding the Dolphins.)





  21. Dallas Cowboys: Lavert Hill, CB, Michigan
    It wouldn’t hurt for the Cowboys to bolster their secondary, as they are weaker against the pass than the run.





  22. Denver Broncos: A.J. Green, CB, Oklahoma State
    The Broncos’ corners haven’t been the same since losing Aqib Talib. There’s even talk that Chris Harris Jr. could be traded.





  23. Las Vegas Raiders: Erroll Thompson, LB, Mississippi State
    The Raiders could add a second player to help their putrid linebacking corps.

    Erroll Thompson projects as a two-down run defender.



  24. Minnesota Vikings: Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri
    The Vikings could stand to add some depth to the interior of the defensive line, and a long-term replacement for Linval Joseph.

    Pick change; previously T.J. Carter, CB



  25. Buffalo Bills: Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State
    Frank Gore won’t be around much longer, so the Bills will need a viable backup behind Devin Singletary.

    Eno Benjamin has shown better receiving ability, so he could be chosen in the second round.



  26. Kansas City Chiefs: Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
    The Chiefs need to do something to bolster their horrific run defense.



  27. Green Bay Packers: Marcus Norman, OT, South Florida
    The Packers should find some depth on their offensive line and a possible successor for Bryan Bulaga.

    Marcus Norman had a great 2018 season, as scouts have been impressed with his length and athleticism.



  28. Denver Broncos: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
    The Broncos really have nothing at receiver outside of Courtland Sutton, so they could double up at the position.



  29. New England Patriots: Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota
    The Patriots could aim to find some safety youth, as they have some older players at the position.

    Tyler Johnson is a sound receiver; he’s a good route-runner and is a sure-handed pass-catcher.





  30. New Orleans Saints: Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt
    Here’s another new weapon for Drew Brees (and eventually Taysom Hill), as Jared Cook is just a short-term solution.



  31. Houston Texans: Calvin Throckmorton, OT/C, Oregon
    The Texans need to continue to bolster their pedestrian offensive line.



  32. Baltimore Ravens: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
    Justice Hill hasn’t show much, so I wonder if the Ravens will be interested in adding a new running back to eventually replace Mark Ingram.

    Travis Etienne is coming off a huge year. He should work to become a better receiver.
