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

    Trey Sermon is a physical back with nice speed.

  2. New York Jets: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College
    The Jets could add some competition at center, which wasn’t a position of strength last year.

    The brother of Falcons guard Chris Lindstrom, Alec had an injury history early in his collegiate career but has seemingly overcome those.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
    The Falcons had no running game in 2020, which is why they blew so many leads. That must change.

    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.

  4. Houston Texans: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
    The Texans have severe problems in their secondary that they must address.

    Elijah Molden is a gritty slot cornerback who tackles well.



  5. Cleveland Browns: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    The Browns could pursue multiple linebackers this offseason in order to upgrade their biggest weakness.

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

  6. Cincinnati Bengals: Hamlicar Rashed, DE/OLB, Oregon State
    The Bengals need to continue to assemble defensive talent to help them contain Lamar Jackson, which includes another edge player.

    Hamlicar Rashed had a great 2019 season, but took a step backward in 2020.

  7. Detroit Lions: Dax Milne, WR, BYU
    The Lions could double, or even triple up on receivers because they lost both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones.



  8. Carolina Panthers: Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    The Panthers will have to replace Curtis Samuel after losing him to the Redskins this offseason.

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

  9. Denver Broncos: Victor Dimukeje, DE, Duke
    Once again, Von Miller has some off-the-field issues, so the Broncos could bring in a replacement, or at the very least, an insurance policy. It’s impossible to replace Miller with just one player.

    Victor Dimukeje lacks length, but he was a productive edge rusher for the Blue Devils.

  10. Dallas Cowboys: Jared Goldwire, DE/DT, Louisville
    The Cowboys must address their defense at every level. The interior of their defensive front needs an injection of talent.



  11. New York Giants: Tony Fields, LB, West Virginia
    Blake Martinez was a great addition to the Giants’ linebacking corps, but more help is needed.

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

  12. San Francisco 49ers: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
    The 49ers signed Trent Williams to a huge contract, but they’ll need an insurance policy in case he can’t stay healthy.

    Pick change; previously Peyton Ramsey, QB

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Quincy Roche, DE/OLB, Miami
    The Chargers will need to replace Melvin Ingram, who is about to leave via free agency.

    Quincy Roche needs to bulk up, but he has plenty of explosion of out of the snap.

    Pick change; previously DeAngelo Malone, DE/OLB

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    The Vikings lost Riley Reiff to the Bengals, so they’ll need to further replenish their offensive line.



  15. New England Patriots: Stone Forsythe, OT, Florida
    The Patriots could add depth on the offensive line just in case Trent Brown continues to be injured.

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

  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Aaron Banks, G, Notre Dame
    The Raiders dumped three offensive linemen this offseason, so numerous picks will need to be used on their blocking.

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






  17. Houston Texans: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss
    The Texans lost Will Fuller, so they’ll need to find another receiver at some point this April.

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

  18. Philadelphia Eagles: DeAngelo Malone, DE/OLB, Western Kentucky
    The Eagles lost Vinny Curry this offseason, so they’ll need to find another edge rusher for depth purposes.

    Pick change; previously Baron Browning, LB

  19. Washington Redskins: Osa Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    The Redskins have a great pass rush, but the depth there will be a problem once Ryan Kerrigan moves elsewhere.



  20. Minnesota Vikings: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
    The Vikings don’t have much at receiver beyond their two studs.

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

  21. Tennessee Titans: Nick Collins, WR, Michigan
    The Titans didn’t have much receiving depth before Corey Davis departed.




  22. Indianapolis Colts: Shawn Davis, S, Florida
    The Colts may have to replace Malik Hooker, depending on what happens in free agency.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Tre Brown, CB, Oklahoma
    The Steelers lost several defensive backs in free agency, so they could double up on cornerbacks.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Alaric Jackson, OT, Iowa
    The Seahawks don’t have many picks, but they need to spend multiple selections on upgrading the offensive line.

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
    The Jaguars need to continue adding to their poor defense. Their secondary is a mess, especially at safety.

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



  26. Baltimore Ravens: Jacoby Stevens, LB/S, LSU
    The Ravens can stand to improve their production at linebacker, though Patrick Queen should be better with more experience.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Trill Williams, CB, Syracuse
    Here’s more help for the Browns’ secondary, which, again, was a weakness last year.



  28. New Orleans Saints: Grant Stuard, LB, Houston
    The Saints have some departed free agents at linebacker they’ll need to replace.

  29. Minnesota Vikings: Amen Ogbongbemiga, LB, Oklahoma State
    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.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Louisville
    The Packers need to retool their receiving corps, so they could spend multiple picks on it this April.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Demetric Felton, WR/RB, UCLA
    Sammy Watkins is leaving, so the Chiefs should look for another receiver.

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

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Janarius Robinson, DE, Florida State
    The Buccaneers re-signed Jason Pierre-Paul, but they need a future replacement for Jason Pierre-Paul.

  33. Dallas Cowboys: Cameron Sample, DE, Tulane
    Here’s more help for Dallas’ defensive line, which must see multiple upgrades.

  34. New England Patriots: Dorian Etheridge, LB, Louisville
    Bill Belichick usually boasts a great linebacking corps, but that was hardly the case last year because of numerous departures.

  35. Pittsburgh Steelers: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College
    The Steelers shouldn’t rely on Eric Ebron and his terrible hands.

  36. Los Angeles Rams: Paris Ford, S, Pittsburgh
    The Rams will need to spend an early pick on a safety if John Johnson leaves via free agency.

  37. Green Bay Packers: Josh Myers, C, Ohio State
    Corey Linsley would be a huge departure if he leaves in free agency. Here’s a potential replacement.

  38. Minnesota Vikings: Evan McPherson, K, Florida
    The Vikings have numerous extra picks, so they can afford to spend a selection on their dubious kicking situation.

  39. Kansas City Chiefs: Monty Rice, LB, Georgia
    The Chiefs don’t value linebackers very highly, but they still need to upgrade the position.
