  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
    The Jaguars will likely go after a mid-round running back so they can have a viable backup behind James Robinson.

    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.

  2. New York Jets: Aaron Robinson, CB, Central Florida
    The Jets need to continue to fix their secondary. Their cornerback situation is quite dire.

    Aaron Robinson is a big corner (6-1, 193) who tackles well.

  3. Houston Texans: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
    The Texans had one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL last year, so they’ll need to address their secondary.

    Elijah Molden is a gritty slot cornerback who tackles well.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Mustafa Johnson, DT, Colorado
    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: Chasen Hines, G, LSU
    The Bengals will likely add multiple offensive linemen in the NFL Draft, given their problems in the trenches.

    Chasen Hines is a massive interior lineman (6-3, 349) who needs to work on pass protection.

  7. Detroit Lions: Ed Ingram, G, LSU
    The Lions could address their offensive line so that D’Andre Swift gets some great run blocking.

    Ed Ingram is a tough run blocker who has displayed some athleticism.



  8. Carolina Panthers: Jared Goldwire, G, Louisville
    The Panthers could pursue a second offensive lineman in the first four rounds, as blocking was an issue last year.

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

  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: Sevyn Banks, CB, Ohio State
    The Cowboys have a weak secondary, so they’ll need to add a cornerback at some point.



  11. New York Giants: Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina
    The Giants need a better backup behind Saquon Barkley in case he gets hurt again.

    Javonte Williams is a quick and powerful runner who has shown good receiving ability.

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

    Tutu Atwell projects as a slot receiver in the NFL after showing play-making ability in 2020.

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
    The Chargers need a successor for Linval Joseph in order to make sure that they can stop the run.

  14. Buffalo Bills: Grant Stuard, LB, Houston
    Buffalo’s defense fell apart when Matt Milano was sidelined, so the team could go after some linebacker help.



  15. New England Patriots: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss
    Here’s another receiver for the Patriots, who desperately need help at the position.

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

  16. Miami Dolphins: Royce Newman, G, Ole Miss
    The Dolphins need to obtain multiple upgrades to the offensive line to give Tua Tagovailoa the best chance to succeed.

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






  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: D.J. Daniel, CB, Georgia
    The Redskins need some help at cornerback to help improve their overrated pass defense.



  20. Minnesota Vikings: Joshuah Bledsoe, S, Missouri
    Anthony Harris struggled last year and may leave via free agency.

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

  21. Tennessee Titans: Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State
    Jonnu Smith is an impending free agent, so here’s a potential replacement if he leaves.

    Charlie Kolar is a quality route runner who has nice hands.




  22. Indianapolis Colts: Mark Webb, S, Georgia
    Malik Hooker may leave via free agency, so here’s a potential replacement.

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

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
    The Steelers need to work on actually having a running game, as opposed to not.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Trevon Grimes, WR, Florida
    The Seahawks have nothing at receiver outside of D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

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

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jake Curhan, OT, California
    The Jaguars need to make sure Trevor Lawrence’s pass protection is as good as possible.



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

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

  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. Buffalo Bills: Ambry Thomas, CB, Michigan
    The Bills have depth issues at cornerback, so they could pursue the position in the middle rounds.

  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. 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.

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
    Andy Reid loves to bolster the trenches, and there’s a chance Eric Fisher may not be ready for the 2021 opener.
