  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
    Myles Jack is having a great rebound year, but the Jaguars could use help at the position.

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

  2. New York Jets: Paris Ford, S, Pittsburgh
    The Jets dealt one of the top safeties in the NFL to the Seahawks. Here’s a potential replacement for Jamal Adams.

    Paris Ford was all over the field last season, and he stood out on film to several scouts.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
    The Falcons have one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Their cornerback situation is abysmal outside of A.J. Terrell.

    Tyson Campbell is a very strong, physical cornerback with great size (6-2, 180).

  4. Miami Dolphins: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
    The Dolphins could add another running back to pair with Myles Gaskin.

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



  5. Philadelphia Eagles: Deonte Brown, G, Alabama
    The Eagles seem to have forgotten what made them a Super Bowl champion in 2017. They had an elite offensive line back then, but now they can’t block at all for Carson Wentz.

    Deonte Brown’s strength is blasting open huge holes for his running backs, but he’s also a solid pass protector.

  6. Cincinnati Bengals: Rashad Weaver, DE, Pittsburgh
    The Bengals need to continue to assemble defensive talent to help them contain Lamar Jackson, which includes another edge player.

    Rashad Evans has good size (6-5, 270) and athleticism. He’s rebounded well after missing all of 2019 with an injury.

  7. Carolina Panthers: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
    The Panthers need to continue to upgrade their woeful secondary.

    Trevon Moehrig is a hybrid safety-linebacker who had an impressive 2019 season.



  8. Denver Broncos: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    The Broncos have finally gotten Garett Bolles to play well, but they’ll need a talented bookend at right tackle.

    Walker Little was projected as a top-10 prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft before he suffered an injury. He’ll be back to that designation in 20201 if he can show that he’s healthy.

  9. Detroit Lions: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
    The Lions have serious problems at cornerback, so they may use a second-day pick on the position.

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

  10. New York Giants: Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
    The Giants have issues blocking for Daniel Jones, so they’ll need to improve their offensive line.

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



  11. San Francisco 49ers: Trey Hill, C, Georgia
    The 49ers were expected to target a center early in the 2020 NFL Draft, so they may pursue the position at this juncture.

    Trey Hill put himself on the first-round map when he handled Derrick Brown impressively in 2019.

  12. Dallas Cowboys: Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa
    As mentioned in the first round, the Cowboys must address their defense. They need help at every level. The interior of their defensive front needs an injection of talent.

    Daviyon Nixon had a strong 2020 campaign, showing effectiveness as a pass rusher and a run stuffer.

    Pick change; previously Jay Tufele, DT

  13. Jacksonville Jaguars: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
    The Jaguars need to continue fixing their defense, which lost a ton of talented personnel recently.

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

  14. New England Patriots: Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
    It shouldn’t surprise anyone if the Patriots double up on receivers, given the glaring need at the position.

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

    Pick change; previously Marques Stevenson, WR



  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama
    Here’s more offensive line help for the Chargers. It’s difficult to trust Mike Pouncey.

    Landon Dickerson transferred from Florida State and ended up being a solid run blocker for the Tide.

  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Derion Kendrick, CB, Clemson
    Here’s another cornerback for the Raiders, who need as much help as possible to defend Patrick Mahomes over the next 10 years.

    Derion Kendrick has displayed good coverage skills in an improved 2020 campaign.






  17. Arizona Cardinals: Joe Tryon, DE, Washington
    The Cardinals need to add to their pass rush, so they can avoid a similar mess they’re in now after losing Chandler Jones.

    Joe Tryon came out of nowhere to have a breakout 2019 campaign. He has a nice frame (6-5, 262) and tons of upside to be an impactful edge rusher in the NFL.

  18. Miami Dolphins: Cade Mays, OT, Tennessee
    The Dolphins need to fix their offensive line, as Tua Tagovailoa was under siege more than the Dolphins wanted.

    Cade Mays was a five-star recruit, and he has the potential to be an elite left tackle.

  19. Washington Redskins: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama
    The Redskins may sign a veteran quarterback in free agency, but they could also use a second-day pick on a quarterback if they can’t get one in the opening frame.

    Mac Jones has been better than expected this year, and sources have told Charlie Campbell that they expect Jones to be chosen in the second round.



  20. Chicago Bears: Kary Vincent Jr., CB, LSU
    The Bears have needed better play at slot corner ever since losing Bryce Callahan.

    Kary Vincent Jr. is small (5-10), but he can be a solid slot corner at the next level.

  21. Tennessee Titans: Chazz Surratt, DE/OLB, North Carolina
    The Titans could double up on edge rushers, given their inability to get to the quarterback.

    Chazz Surratt spent some time at quarterback before breaking out at linebacker. He should continue to improve as he learns the position.




  22. Indianapolis Colts: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
    The Colts need to think about who their next quarterback will be after Philip Rivers is done.

    Kyle Trask is an accurate passer with a strong arm, but he needs to hasten his decision-making.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia
    The Steelers need to find a quarterback for the future.

    Say hello to Jamie Newman, who has created a buzz in the scouting community. He has nice passing talent and can also beat the opposition with his legs.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State
    The Seahawks miss Quinton Jefferson, so they may use an early pick on a defensive tackle.

    Marvin Wilson has outstanding size (6-5, 311) and athleticism, and he is capable of putting consistent pressure on the quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Daviyon Nixon, DT

  25. Los Angeles Rams: Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
    There’s a chance Andrew Whitworth will retire after the 2020 season. That would make the Rams’ already-putrid offensive line even worse.

    Liam Eichenberg took over at left tackle in the wake of Mike McGlinchey’s departure to the NFL.



  26. Baltimore Ravens: Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas
    The Ravens traded for Yannick Ngakoue, but they could add another edge rusher to strengthen their pass rush.

    Joseph Ossai has good athleticism and projects as an outside linebacker in the 3-4.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Marques Stevenson, WR, Houston
    It remains to be seen if the Browns will retain Odell Beckham Jr., or if they’ll release him.

    Marques Stevenson has incredible speed.

    Pick change; previously Patrick Jones, DE



  28. New Orleans Saints: Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
    The Saints signed Emmanuel Sanders, but they need a second receiver for the long term.

    Rashod Bateman runs routes well, but there’s question about his ability to separate.

  29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jackson Carman, G, Clemson
    The Buccaneers could stand to add another lineman to protect Tom Brady, especially after what happened in the loss to the Rams.

    Jackson Carman is a massive, 345-pound guard who played some tackle for Clemson before moving inside.

  30. Buffalo Bills: Rondale Moore, RB/WR, Purdue
    The Bills don’t really have any needs, so they can afford to use a second-round pick on a versatile weapon.

    Rondale Moore is a very intriguing weapon. He accumulated 1,367 yards as a freshman by both running and receiving. Some NFL team is going to figure out a great way to use the extremely talented 175-pounder.

  31. Green Bay Packers: Tedarrell Slaton, NT, Florida
    Raheem Mostert trampled the Packers in the NFC Championship last year, yet the front office did nothing about it.

    Tedarrell Slaton is a massive nose tackle who causes lots of disruption.

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State
    Andy Reid loves bolstering the trenches, so he could add to Patrick Mahomes’ pass protection.
