  1. San Francisco 49ers: Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State
    Richard Sherman doesn't have much time left, so the 49ers will need to find a new No. 1 cornerback for the future.

    Shaun Wade has a ton of upside and was able to produce well in the slot in 2019. He's expected to move outside this year.

    Pick change; previously Paulson Adebo, CB



  2. New Orleans Saints: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
    The Saints need to continue to improve their secondary, as their pass defense was a weakness in 2019. Malcolm Jenkins looks shot.

    Andre Cisco has a chance to sneak into the first round when he declares, as he's been a very productive player.

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
    The Eagles had no answer for Chase Claypool in a loss to the Steelers. They have one talented cornerback in Darius Slay, but nothing else at the position.

    Paulson Adebo has great size, coverage skills and play-making ability. He struggled a bit in 2019, but could rebound next year.

    Pick change; previously Patrick Surtain II, CB



  4. Indianapolis Colts: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
    The Colts could draft a quarterback of the future to take over for Philip Rivers in 2022.

    Kyle Trask is an accurate passer with a strong arm, but he needs to hasten his decision-making. He was great in the 2020 opener.

  5. Cleveland Browns: DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
    Odell Beckham Jr. could be shipped off if he continues to cause trouble or fail to recover. Here's a replacement for him if that happens.

    DeVonta Smith is an excellent route runner with great hands and tremendous run-after-catch ability.



  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jay Tufele, DT, USC
    The Buccaneers have an elite defensive line, but Ndamukong Suh doesn't have much time remaining in the NFL.

    Jay Tufele is an extremely athletic and agile 310-pound defensive tackle who could be chosen in the top half of the draft, whenever he declares.

    Pick change; previously Marvin Wilson, DT

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kwity Paye, DE/DT, Michigan
    The Jaguars really miss Calais Campbell. They need a force in the interior to stop the run and pressure the quarterback.

    Kwity Paye has a chance to move into the first round; he's shown some upside in his only year as a starter.

    Pick change; previously Trey Lance, QB



  8. Buffalo Bills: Wyatt Davis, G, Ohio State
    The Bills struggled when battling tough pass rushes last year, so they'll need to improve their offensive line in case this becomes an issue at some point in 2020.

    Wyatt Davis is a tough run blocker with nice size.

  9. Chicago Bears: Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
    Both of Chicago's tackles have entered their 30s, so the Bears will need to get younger at the position in the near future.

    Jalen Mayfield did a great job against Chase Young late in 2019, showcasing his athletic potential.



  10. Arizona Cardinals: Aidan Hutchinson, DE, Michigan
    Chandler Jones' injury exposed the Cardinals' need for another viable edge rusher. Unless Zach Allen emerges, this will need to be an area Arizona explores early in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Aidan Hutchinson is a much better defender than pass rusher.

    Pick change; previously Joe Tryon, DE

  11. Baltimore Ravens: Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, LSU
    Lamar Jackson was blamed for the latest playoff loss, but his receivers really let him down.

    Terrace Marshall has nice size (6-3, 200), speed and route-running ability.

    Pick change; previously Tamorrion Terry, WR



  12. Tennessee Titans: LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama
    The Titans traded away Jurrell Casey, so they'll need to find a replacement in the near future.

    LaBryan Ray flashed a bit alongside Quinnen Williams and now has a larger role on Alabama.

  13. New York Jets: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
    The Le'Veon Bell-Adam Gase marriage is finally over. The Jets are so inept that they couldn't even trade Le'Veon Bell, so they cut him. Pathetic!

    Travis Etienne is coming off a huge year in which he rushed for 1,572 yards. He has worked to become a better receiver.

  14. Kansas City Chiefs: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
    The Chiefs could add another cornerback. They'll need to deal with Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen for the division title for quite some time.

    Caleb Farley opted out of the 2020 season, but he has high upside with nice size and speed.

    Pick change; previously Jay Tufele, DT

  15. Green Bay Packers: Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
    The Packers seemed to forget that they had a big need at receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft. Perhaps they'll find an upgrade for Jordan Love in this class.

    Chris Olave has a good mix of size (6-1, 185) and speed. He was a big play-maker at the end of 2019.



  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina
    The Steelers will need to find a replacement in the near future for Joe Haden, who turns 32 a few weeks prior to the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Jaycee Horn is a fast, fluid athlete. Team sources have told Charlie Campbell that Horn is a better prospect than his teammate, Israel Mukuamu.
