  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
    The Jaguars continue to strengthen their offense by giving Trevor Lawrence a talented weapon for the middle of the field.

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

    Pick change; previously Paulson Adebo, CB

  2. Miami Dolphins: Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
    It’s going to be difficult counting on Matt Breida to remain healthy, so here’s some running back help.

    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.

  3. Carolina Panthers: Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
    The Panthers may have selected a cornerback if Derrick Brown wasn’t available. They need a replacement for James Bradberry.

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

  4. Washington Redskins: Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida
    The Redskins failed to find a replacement for Jordan Reed during the 2020 NFL Draft, so they’ll have to address that need next April.

    Kyle Pitts is a matchup nightmare, as he’s too fast for linebackers and too big for safeties.



  5. Chicago Bears: Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
    The Bears lost Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, so they’ll need to replace him at some point.

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

    Pick change; previously Andre Cisco, S

  6. 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.

  7. Detroit Lions: Caden Sterns, S, Texas
    The Lions could use a safety after trading Quandre Diggs to the Seahawks.

    Caden Sterns emerged as a star for Texas’ defense as a freshman, picking off four passes. Unfortunately, he missed most of his sophomore campaign with a knee injury.

    Pick change; previously Tamorrion Terry, WR



  8. New York Jets: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
    The Le’Veon Bell-Adam Gase marriage may not end very well. There was already speculation that the Jets may move on from Bell, so perhaps that’ll actually happen during the 2021 offseason.

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Quincy Roche, DE/OLB, Miami
    The Bengals need to continue to assemble defensive talent to help them contain Lamar Jackson, which includes another pass rusher.

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

  10. Miami Dolphins: Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    DeVante Parker was amazing in 2019, but there’s a chance that was a mirage. If so, Miami will be in the market for a receiver.

    Tamorrion Terry is a big, athletic receiver who could sneak into the first round.

    Pick change; previously Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR



  11. Tennessee Titans: Carlos Basham, DE/DT, Wake Forest
    The Titans traded away Jurrell Casey, so they’ll need to find a replacement in the near future.

    Carlos Basham always stuffed the run well, but his pass rush improved tremendously from 2018 to 2019.

  12. Atlanta Falcons: Chazz Surratt, DE/OLB, North Carolina
    The Falcons were rumored to be interested in K’Lavon Chaisson. They didn’t get him, but here’s another edge rusher.

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

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Trey Hill, C, Georgia
    Here’s more offensive line help for the Chargers. It’s difficult to trust Mike Pouncey.

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



  14. Las Vegas Raiders: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
    Here’s another cornerback for the Raiders, who need as much help as possible to defend Patrick Mahomes.



  15. Green Bay Packers: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
    It’s fair to wonder if the Packers know how bad their receivers are. Perhaps they’ll do some film study and figure that out soon.

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

    Pick change; previously Tarik Black, WR






  16. New England Patriots: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
    Sony Michel and Damien Harris will have one more year to prove their worth. If they both continue to struggle, Bill Belichick will be looking for a new running back.

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

  17. Arizona Cardinals: Tarik Black, WR, Texas
    The Cardinals could use an early 2021 pick on a receiver if Larry Fitzgerald retires.

    Tarik Black has great size (6-3, 215) and speed, but hasn’t been able to stay healthy. Maybe he’ll have better luck in Texas.

    Pick change; previously Caden Sterns, S

  18. Dallas Cowboys: Merlin Robertson, LB, Arizona State
    The Cowboys expressed interest in using a second-day pick on a linebacker, but the player they were interested in was chosen before they were on the clock.

    Merlin Robertson was outstanding as a freshman in Herm Edwards’ defense.



  19. Cleveland Browns: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
    The Browns may tire of Odell Beckham’s antics quite soon if he continues to fail to live up to expectations.

    Tylan Wallace doesn’t have great size and speed, but he runs routes very well. He tore his ACL in October 2019.

    Pick change; previously Jonathan Garvin, DE

  20. New York Giants: Jonathan Garvin, DE, Miami
    The Giants still haven’t addressed their edge rush, so they’ll have to do that sometime soon.

    Jonathan Garvin logged 5.5 sacks in 2018. He has a ton of potential to fill out his frame.

    Pick change; previously Caden Sterns, S




  21. Minnesota Vikings: Richie Grant, S, Central Florida
    The Vikings may need a replacement for Anthony Harris if they can’t replace him.

    Richie Grant is a ball-hawking safety who picked off six passes as a sophomore.

    Pick change; previously Mustafa Johnson, DT

  22. Denver Broncos: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    The Broncos showed interest in an early linebacker in the 2020 NFL Draft, so that’s a position that could be addressed in 2021.

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

  23. Philadelphia Eagles: Mustafa Johnson, DT, Colorado
    The Eagles are no strangers to bolstering the trenches, so they may decide to do that once again.

    Mustafa Johnson broke out in 2018 after being a Juco transfer.

    Pick change; previously Richie Grant, S

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: C.J. Verdell, RB, Oregon
    The Steelers were disappointed with James Conner, so they’ll be looking for a new running back soon.

    C.J. Verdell is a 200-pound back with explosive ability and plus catching skills. It didn’t take him very long to win the starting job as a redshirt freshman.



  25. Seattle Seahawks: Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State
    The Seahawks traded for Quinton Dunbar, but they still need another cornerback.

  26. 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.



  27. Indianapolis Colts: Dimitri Moore, LB, Vanderbilt
    The Colts may be interested in adding some linebacking help around Darius Leonard.

    Dimitri Moore was just a three-star recruit, but he has been a tremendous play-maker for Vanderbilt.

  28. San Francisco 49ers: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College
    The 49ers were expected to target a center early in the 2020 NFL Draft, so they may pursue the position at this juncture.

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

  29. Baltimore Ravens: Thomas Booker, DE/DT, Stanford
    Calais Campbell will be great for the short term, but here’s an answer for the long haul.

    Thomas Booker, a former five-star recruit, is an agile defensive lineman who will fit into a 4-3 or 3-4.

  30. New Orleans Saints: Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn
    The Saints signed Emmanuel Sanders, but they need a second receiver for the long term.

    Anthony Schwartz caught just 19 passes as a freshman, but he has loads of potential. He’ll have a chance to break the 40-time record at the combine.

  31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
    Ndamukong Suh may not be around for much longer, so the Buccaneers will be searching for another defensive tackle soon.

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Randall St. Felix, WR, South Florida
    The Chiefs could add someone to help provide more interior disruption.

    Randall St. Felix is a huge receiver (6-2, 205) who was very productive in his first season with South Florida.
