  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College
    Laviska Shenault and Marvin Jones have been major disappointments this year, so the Jaguars will want to find another receiver to pair with D.J. Chark.

    Zay Flowers is a 5-10 receiver, but he has game-breaking speed.

  2. Detroit Lions: Jayln Armour-Davis, CB, Alabama
    Jeff Okudah looks like a bust thus far, but even if he pans out, the Lions still need cornerback help for their horrendous secondary.

    Jayln Armour-Davis is a 6-1 cornerback with a good skill set.

  3. New York Giants: Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State
    Evan Engram has been the subject of trade rumors, so the Giants will need to find a new tight end if Engram is moved.

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

  4. Houston Texans: Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
    Bill O'Brien may disagree, but it's a sad state of affairs to have Rex Burkhead as your lead back. The Texans need someone new to complement their next franchise quarterback.

    Isaiah Spiller rushed for 1,036 yards and nine touchdowns in 2020. He did OK as a receiver out of the backfield.



  5. New York Jets: Zamir White, RB, Georgia
    Michael Carter looks like a solid running back, but I'm sure the Jets will want to find a better complement for him.

    Zamir White has been an impressive back in Georgia's committee this year.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Zakoby McClain, LB, Auburn
    The Jaguars really struggle to defend the middle of the field, so they need to find upgrades for their linebacking corps.

    Zakoby McClain is a tackling machine who needs to improve his pass coverage.

  7. Chicago Bears: Demarvioun Overshown, LB, Texas
    Danny Trevathan is an aging player who will need to be replaced soon.

    Demarvioun Overshown was flying all over the field in Texas' impressive Week 1 win versus Louisiana.

    Pick change; previously Terrell Bernard, LB

  8. Seattle Seahawks: Cameron Thomas, DE, San Diego State
    The Seahawks have no pass rush, so they'll need to add defensive linemen to their roster this offseason.

    Cameron Thomas is considered overrated by some of Charlie Campbell's sources, citing that he's not twitchy enough.

    Pick change; previously Amare Barno, DE



  9. Washington Redskins: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
    The Redskins have a huge problem in their secondary, so they could double up on cornerbacks.

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

    Pick change; previously Tariq Castro-Fields, CB

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Amare Barno, DE, Virginia Tech
    The Falcons haven't possessed a potent edge rusher in a long while. They can begin to bolster their defense by finding one.

    NFL advance scouts were impressed with Amare Barno's 2020 tape that saw him accumulate 6.5 sacks.

    Pick change; previously Brenton Cox, DE/OLB

  11. Denver Broncos: Jermaine Waller, CB, Virginia Tech
    The Broncos will need a new slot cornerback if Bryce Callahan leaves via free agency this offseason.

    Jermaine Waller has been a ballhawking cornerback in 2021, notching three interceptions in the early stages of the season.

    Pick change; previously Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB



  12. Baltimore Ravens: Kenneth Walker, RB, Michigan State
    We've learned that the Ravens don't have the best depth at running back behind J.K. Dobbins.

    Kenneth Walker is a tough back who runs with great balance.

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma
    Michael Pierce hasn't been able to stay healthy. The Vikings must improve against the run. Perrion Winfrey dominated the trenches in 2020, especially late in the season.

    Pick change; previously Travis Jones, NT



  14. Cleveland Browns: Sam Williams, DE, Ole Miss
    The Browns need to improve their pass rush outside of Myles Garrett.

    Sam Williams is very talented, but has character concerns.

    Pick change; previously Ali Gaye, DE

  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Will Mallory, TE, Miami
    The Chargers need a long-term answer at tight end to replace Hunter Henry.




  16. Houston Texans: Calvin Austin, WR, Memphis
    The Texans will need to find multiple new receivers soon, given their lack of talent at the position.

    Calvin Austin is small receiver (5-9) but is very fast and elusive.

  17. New York Giants: Terrell Bernard, LB, Baylor
    The Giants' linebacking corps is starved for talent aside from Blake Martinez.

    Terrell Bernard has three-down starting potential for the NFL.

    Pick change; previously James Skalski, LB

  18. Indianapolis Colts: Myles Jones, CB, Texas A&M
    The Colts have a weak cornerback group, which will get much worse when Xavier Rhodes leaves.

    Myles Jones is a 6-3 cornerback, but needs to pack on some muscle onto his frame.



  19. Philadelphia Eagles: LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama
    Fletcher Cox has entered his 30s, so the Eagles may want to think about finding a successor.

    LaBryan Ray flashed a bit alongside Quinnen Williams and now has a larger role on Alabama.




  20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Aqeel Glass, QB, Alabama A&M
    The Steelers won't have Ben Roethlisberger next year. This means they'll have nothing at quarterback because Mason Rudolph isn't the answer. The Steelers may decide to use this pick on their next franchise quarterback.

    Aqeel Glass has great scrambling ability. He greatly improved his accuracy this past season.

  21. New England Patriots: Akayleb Evans, CB, Tulsa
    The Patriots lost Stephon Gilmore, so they may want to obtain another cornerback.

    Akayleb Evans has good speed and athleticism to go along with his 6-1 frame.

  22. Las Vegas Raiders: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
    The Raiders need a new downfield threat in the wake of Henry Ruggs' arrest.

    Jalen Tolbert has shown some big-play ability, but level of competition is obviously a question mark.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Zion Johnson, G, Boston College
    The Cardinals could stand to add to their offensive line to protect Kyler Murray.

    Zion Johnson played tackle at Boston College, but his size and length limitations may force him to guard.

  24. Dallas Cowboys: Alontae Taylor, CB, Tennessee
    Dallas' secondary looked weak in the Thanksgiving loss to the Raiders.

    The speedy Alontae Taylor has put together some great tape as a corner in the SEC.



  25. Buffalo Bills: Juanyeh Thomas, S, Georgia Tech
    The Bills have a couple of safeties in their 30s, so they may want a young player at the position.

    Juanyeh Thomas has nice speed and athleticism.

  26. Tennessee Titans: Will McDonald, DE/OLB, Iowa State
    The Titans could stand to add another edge rusher to make their pass rush even more potent.

    Will McDonald is an athletic edge rusher with lots of upside, but figures to be a liability against the run.



  27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
    Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones are set to hit free agency.

    Breece Hall is a physical runner who has quality receiving skills.

  28. Green Bay Packers: James Skalski, LB, Clemson
    The Packers could stand to upgrade the middle of the field with a mid-round selection on a linebacker.

    James Skalski is a solid player, but could use a nice combine to show teams that he has greater upside.

    Pick change; previously MoMo Sanogo, LB

  29. Cincinnati Bengals: Tariq Castro-Fields, CB, Penn State
    The Bengals could stand to add some talent at cornerback to defend the gifted recievers in the AFC North.

    Tariq Castro-Fields has drawn comparisons to Marlon Humphrey. He has great ball skills and happens to be very fast.

    Pick change; previously Sevyn Banks, CB

  30. Miami Dolphins: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
    Xavien Howard always seems to be the subject of trade rumors, so the Dolphins could obtain a cornerback early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    Kyler Gordon is a solid cornerback, though he doesn't get many turnovers.

  31. Denver Broncos: Smoke Monday, S, Auburn
    The Broncos will need to find a long-term replacement for Kareem Jackson.

    Smoke Monday has great tackling ability.

    Pick change; previously Bubba Bolden, S

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Sevyn Banks, CB, Ohio State
    The Chiefs could stand to add another cornerback to help stop Justin Herbert.

    Ohio State's secondary struggled in 2020, but not when it came to Sevyn Banks' coverage.

    Pick change; previously Coby Bryant, CB
