  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Royce Newman, G, Ole Miss
    The Jaguars need to make sure Trevor Lawrence's pass protection is as good as possible.

    Royce Neman played tackle at Ole Miss, but will have to move to guard in the NFL.

  2. New York Jets: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss
    Breshad Perriman was a disappointment last year, so the Jets could add a receiver in the middle rounds.

    Elijah Moore projects as a mid-round slot receiver after a huge 2020 campaign.

    Pick change; previously Tamorrion Terry, WR

  3. Houston Texans: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
    David Johnson can't stay healthy - something Bill O'Brien should've known when he acquired Johnson for DeAndre Hopkins - so the Texans will need to add another running back.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Mark Webb, S, Georgia
    The Falcons need more help for their struggling secondary.

    Mark Webb has nice ball skills, but there are speed concerns.

    Pick change; previously Joshuah Bledsoe, S



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
    A.J. Green likely won't be back next year, so the Bengals may want to add a receiver at some point.

    Amon-Ra St. Brown had a big sophomore campaign, catching 60 passes for 750 yards and three touchdowns.

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Louisville
    The Eagles are likely to shed their veteran receivers this offseason, so they'll need to add some talent around some of their disappointing players.

    Dez Fitzpatrick made some impressive catches in the Senior Bowl.

  7. Carolina Panthers: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
    The Panthers have a woeful secondary in need of multiple upgrades.

    Elijah Molden is a gritty slot cornerback who tackles well.



  8. Denver Broncos: Mustafa Johnson, DT, Colorado
    The Broncos struggled defensively last year when their entire front line was injured. They need better depth in this area.

  9. Detroit Lions: Ambry Thomas, CB, Michigan
    The Lions had one of the worst cornerbacking units in the NFL last year, so they'll need multiple new players at the position.

  10. New York Giants: D.J. Daniel, CB, Georgia
    James Bradberry was excellent for the Giants in his first season with the team. More help is needed at corner, however.



  11. San Francisco 49ers: Stone Forsythe, OT, Florida
    Trent Williams is expected back next year, but he's not a solution for the long haul.

    Stone Forsythe emerged as a starter in 2019 and then blocked well this past season.

  12. Philadelphia Eagles: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    The Eagles have one of the worst linebacking corps in the NFL. They could spend multiple picks on the position.

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

    Pick change; previously Jabril Cox, LB

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Adetokunbo Ogundeji, DE, Notre Dame
    The Vikings obtained Yannick Ngakoue to bolster their pass rush last offseason, but ended up trading him when they were out of contention. Here's a potential replacement.

  14. New England Patriots: Nico Collins, WR, Michigan
    It should surprise no one if the Patriots spend multiple selections on receivers.



  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Alaric Jackson, OT, Iowa
    Bryan Bulaga had trouble staying healthy last year, so here's an insurance policy.

    Pick change; previously Mark Webb, S

  16. Arizona Cardinals: Jake Curhan, OT, California
    D.J. Humphries has remained healthy the past two years, but the Cardinals may not fully trust him to remain off the injury report.




  17. Buffalo Bills: Monty Rice, LB, Georgia
    The Bills struggled when Matt Milano was hurt, so maybe they'll add some linebacker depth.

  18. Las Vegas Raiders: Osa Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    The Raiders must continue adding to their defense, which was the reason they failed to make the playoffs in 2020.

    Osa Odighizuwa has loads of talent, but lacks size and is a tweener as a result.

    Pick change; previously Daelin Hayes, DE

  19. Washington Redskins: Hamlicar Rashed, DE/OLB, Oregon State
    Ryan Kerrigan may not be on the team next year. If he's gone, the Redskins may want another edge rusher behind their two studs. Hamlicar Rashed had a great 2019 season, but took a step backward in 2020.

    Pick change; previously Shaka Toney, DE/OLB



  20. Chicago Bears: Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss
    It wouldn't be an NFL Draft if Ryan Pace didn't select a tight end. He may want a cheaper alternative to Jimmy Graham.

  21. Indianapolis Colts: Tuf Borland, LB, Ohio State
    The Colts could use some better depth at linebacker, so they may address this position on Day 3.




  22. Tennessee Titans: Ben Cleveland, G, Georgia
    Rodger Saffold may not be around much longer, so the Titans may want an insurance policy at guard.

  23. Seattle Seahawks: Jack Anderson, G, Texas Tech
    The Seahawks need to finally make sure that Russell Wilson is shielded well.

  24. Minnesota Vikings: Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa
    With so many picks, the Vikings will be able to make sure they have quality depth on the offensive line.

  25. Cleveland Browns: Jacoby Stevens, S, LSU
    The Browns seem to like their LSU defensive backs, so here's another one to help at safety.



  26. Cleveland Browns: Tony Poljan, TE, Virginia
    Another tight end for the Browns, who may be looking to get out of the awful Austin Hooper contract soon.

    Pick change; previously Noah Gray, TE

  27. Baltimore Ravens: Shawn Davis, S, Florida
    The Ravens have a great secondary, but their safety depth is a bit lacking.



  28. San Francisco 49ers: Divine Deablo, S, Virginia Tech
    The 49ers found out the hard way last year that they needed quality depth at safety.

  29. Green Bay Packers: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson
    Perhaps the Packers will make a point to upgrade Aaron Rodgers' receiving corps this offseason.

    Pick change; previously Elijah Moore, WR

  30. Buffalo Bills: Cornell Powell, WR, Clemson
    There are rumors floating around that John Brown won't be returning to Buffalo next year. If so, the Bills will be looking to add another receiver.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
    The Chiefs have an underrated group of cornerbacks, but they could use better depth at the position.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Erroll Thompson, LB, Mississippi State
    Lavonte David turned 31 this offseason, so the Buccaneers could be thinking about their future at the position.
