  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kenny Gainwell, RB, Memphis
    The Jaguars will likely go after a mid-round running back so they can have a viable backup behind James Robinson.

    Kenny Gainwell is explosive and fast, and he can go the distance on any play. He needs to bulk up a bit, but his upside is through the roof.

    Pick change; previously Chuba Hubbard, RB

  2. New York Jets: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
    The Jets need to continue to fix their secondary. Their cornerback situation is quite dire.

    Josh Jobe is a big, athletic cornerback with tremendous upside.

    Pick change; previously Eric Stokes, CB

  3. Houston Texans: Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky
    The Texans had one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL last year, so they'll need to address their secondary.

    Kelvin Joseph was very inconsistent at Kentucky, but possesses a ton of upside.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Marlon Tupulotu, DT, USC
    The Falcons have needed help in the interior of their defensive line next to Grady Jarrett for quite some time.



  5. Cleveland Browns: Tony Fields, LB, West Virginia
    The Browns could pursue multiple linebackers this offseason in order to upgrade their biggest weakness.

    Tony Fields is undersized, but was a very productive player for West Virgnia.

  6. Cincinnati Bengals: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
    The Bengals don't have much at tight end, so they'll need to address that in the middle rounds if they don't select Kyle Pitts at No. 5.

    Brevin Jordan looks to be the next great Miami tight end. He's drawn comparisons to Evan Engram. He's extremely fast.

  7. Detroit Lions: Jared Goldwire, G, Louisville
    The Lions could address their offensive line so that D'Andre Swift gets some great run blocking.

    Jared Goldwire has made tremendous strides, performing very well in 2020 after mediocre seasons beforehand.



  8. Carolina Panthers: Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse
    Here's more help for the troubled Carolina secondary.

  9. Denver Broncos: K.J. Costello, QB, Mississippi State
    The Broncos could bring in a rookie quarterback to eventually challenge Drew Lock.

    K.J. Costello has a nice arm and experience operating a pro-style offense.

  10. Dallas Cowboys: Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina
    The Cowboys have a weak secondary, so they'll need to add a cornerback at some point.

    Israel Mukuamu is a big cornerback (6-4, 205) who is enjoying a breakout sophomore campaign.



  11. New York Giants: Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Oklahoma
    The Giants need a better backup behind Saquon Barkley in case he gets hurt again.

    Rhamondre Stevenson is a power back who has a nice burst to get to the next level.

  12. San Francisco 49ers: Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
    The 49ers may want to add a better third receiver to go along with Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.

    Seth Williams (6-3, 224) came out of nowhere to have a huge 2019 campaign.

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Joshuah Bledsoe, S, Missouri
    Derwin James has had trouble staying healthy, so the Chargers may want to find an insurance policy.

    Joshuah Bledsoe has been a solid tackler over the years for Missouri.

    Pick change; previously Osa Odighizuwa, DE

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Grant Stuard, LB, Houston
    Minnesota's lack of linebacker depth was exposed when the team lost Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr to injury. The Vikings could fix that problem with a mid-round pick.



  15. New England Patriots: Trevon Grimes, WR, Florida
    Here's a new receiver for the Patriots, who desperately need help at the position.

    Trevon Grimes is a mismatch weapon with nice play-making ability.

  16. Miami Dolphins: Aaron Banks, G, Notre Dame
    The Dolphins need to obtain multiple upgrades to the offensive line to give Tua Tagovailoa the best chance to succeed.

    Aaron Banks is at his best as a run blocker, but he was also reliable as a pass protector in 2020.




  17. Houston Texans: David Moore, G, Grambling
    The Texans need as much offensive line help as possible for their next quarterback.

  18. Miami Dolphins: K.J. Britt, LB, Auburn
    The Dolphins were weak to the run last year, so they should add personnel to help improve that.

    K.J. Britt is a solid run defender who needs to improve in coverage.

  19. Washington Redskins: Garret Wallow, LB, TCU
    The Redskins need some help at linebacker to help their struggles in regard to defending the middle of the field.



  20. Minnesota Vikings: Ar'Daius Washington, S, TCU
    Anthony Harris struggled last year and may leave via free agency.

    Ar'Darius Washington is undersized, but has terrific instincts.

  21. Tennessee Titans: Tre McKitty, TE, Georgia
    Jonnu Smith is an impending free agent, so here's a potential replacement if he leaves.

    Tre McKitty is athletic, but needs to be stronger to contribute in the NFL.

    Pick change; previously Tony Poljan, TE




  22. Indianapolis Colts: Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
    Malik Hooker may leave via free agency, so here's a potential replacement.

    Richard LeCounte is a rangy tackling machine who has drawn comparisons to Eddie Jackson.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kary Vincent Jr., CB, LSU
    The Steelers have a couple of cornerbacks who will be entering free agency, so here's a potential replacement. Kary Vincent Jr. is small (5-10), but he can be a solid slot corner at the next level.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Demetric Felton, WR/RB, UCLA
    The Seahawks have nothing at receiver outside of D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

    Demetric Felton is dynamic, versatile threat who is moving from running back to receiver.

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jerome Johnson, DT, Indiana
    The Jaguars need to continue adding to their poor defense. Calais Campbell's absence has left a huge void on their defensive line, so Jacksonville could double up on the position.

    Jerome Johnson has a good motor. He really stood out in the Ohio State game last year.



  26. Baltimore Ravens: Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
    Mark Ingram is gone, so the Ravens could use a mid-round pick to add depth behind J.K. Dobbins.

    Chuba Hubbard is projected as a second-round pick. He has great vision and instincts, and he can catch passes well out of the backfield.

    Pick change; previously Javonte Williams, RB

  27. Cleveland Browns: Cameron Sample, DE, Tulane
    Olivier Vernon may not be back next year, and even if he's retained, he won't be ready for the 2021 opener.



  28. New Orleans Saints: Janarius Robinson, DE, Florida State
    The Saints will need edge-rushing depth if they lose Trey Hendrickson this offseason.

  29. Minnesota Vikings: Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State
    Here's another position in which the Vikings had depth issues in 2020, so a mid-round choice could be used to upgrade the pass defense. Asante Samuel Jr. is a small corner (5-10, 184), but he has great play-making ability.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Camryn Bynum, CB, California
    It became quite apparent that the Packers needed cornerback depth in the wake of their loss to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    The Chiefs may lose Sammy Watkins, so here's a replacement.

    Tamorrion Terry is a big, athletic receiver who could sneak into Day 2.

    Pick change; previously Dillon Radunz, OT

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jahad Woods, LB, Washington State
    Lavonte David has been a great linebacker over the years, but the Buccaneers need to get younger at the position in case there's a decline.
