  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Darian Kinnard, OT, Kentucky
    The Jaguars need to add some protection to help Trevor Lawrence.

    Darian Kinnard has surprising athleticism for his 340-pound frame.

  2. Detroit Lions: Damone Clark, LB, LSU
    The Lions have a major lack of talent at linebacker, so they’ll need to address this area soon.

    Damone Clark could be the next great LSU linebacker with his size and speed.

  3. New York Jets: Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M
    The Jets need to do everything in their power to make sure that Zach Wilson succeeds. They’ll need to add more talent to the offensive line.

    Kenyon Green is a former five-star recruit tackle, but he may have to play guard at the next level.

  4. New York Giants: Arnold Ebiketie, DE/OLB, Penn State
    The Giants could stand to double up on edge rushers, given how weak their pass rush is.

    Sources told Charlie Campbell that Arnold Ebiketie compares favorably to Yannick Ngakoue.



  5. Houston Texans: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State
    Will Fuller is gone, while Brandin Cooks is a ticking time bomb. The Texans are desperate for receiver help.

    Christian Watson has a massive 6-4 frame and looked great at the Senior Bowl.

    Pick change; previously Jahan Dotson, WR

  6. New York Jets: Brandon Smith, LB, Penn State
    The Jets sorely need to upgrade the middle of their defense.

    Brandon Smith is a very athletic linebacker with tremendous upside.

  7. Chicago Bears: Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn
    The Bears have some serious problems at cornerback after losing Kyle Fuller this offseason.

    Roger McCreary is only 5-11, but he has amazing coverage skills.

  8. Denver Broncos: Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss
    The Broncos need to find a new franchise quarterback. Vic Fangio was not lying about the issues at the position.

    Matt Corral developed well under Lane Kiffin, completing 71 percent of his passes in 2020.



  9. Seattle Seahawks: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
    The Seahawks may decide to trade Russell Wilson and blow everything up this offseason. If so, here’s their new quarterback.

    Sam Howell threw for 38 touchdowns in 2019, which was a Division I-A record for a freshman. He doesn’t have ideal size (6-1, 225), but there’s no doubting his throwing ability.

  10. Washington Redskins: Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State
    The Redskins could address their offensive line to help their next franchise quarterback.

    Abraham Lucas has tremendous length and athleticism.

  11. Atlanta Falcons: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
    The Falcons are hurting for talent in their secondary to pair with A.J. Terrell.

    Desmond Ridder impressed this year. He has shown an improved ability to work through progression, and he’s good at using his feet to extend plays.



  12. Cleveland Browns: Phidarian Mathis, DT, Alabama
    The Browns lost Sheldon Richardson, so they may want to obtain an interior presence on the defensive line.

    Phidarian Mathis has excellent athleticism and upside.

  13. Baltimore Ravens: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
    We saw what happened with Baltimore’s secondary last year. The Ravens must make sure they can cover the pass next year.

    Andrew Booth Jr. is coming off an impressive 2020 campaign. There will be more focus on him with Derion Kendrick being expelled from the team.

    Pick change; previously Kyler Gordon, CB



  14. Minnesota Vikings: Zion Johnson, G, Boston College
    The Vikings have a weak offensive line they’ll need to address this upcoming offseason.

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

  15. Indianapolis Colts: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan
    The Colts need a new left tackle, as Eric Fisher is just a temporary solution.

    A former tight end, Bernhard Raimann is an athletic left tackle.






  16. Los Angeles Chargers: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State
    Bryan Bulaga can’t stay healthy, so the Chargers may want to obtain a new right tackle.

    Rasheed Walker is quick feet for a player his size (6-6, 324).

  17. New Orleans Saints: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State
    The Saints could double up on receivers, given their huge need at the position.

    Jahan Dotson caught 52 passes for 884 yards and eight touchdowns in just nine games in 2020. The 5-11 receiver made a big leap in production from the previous year.

    Pick change; previously Justyn Ross, WR

  18. Miami Dolphins: Brian Robinson Jr., RB, Alabama
    The Dolphins can’t evaluate the running back talent on their team, so they’ll need to find a new player at the position.

    Brian Robinson runs with quickness and power to burst through tackles.



  19. Philadelphia Eagles: DeVonte Wyatt, DT, Georgia
    Fletcher Cox is another aging defensive lineman on the Eagles’ roster, so Philadelphia could continue to bolster the trenches.

    DeVonte Wyatt has some quickness despite his 315-pound frame.




  20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota
    Here’s another offensive lineman for the Steelers, whose blocking really needs multiple upgrades.

    Daniel Faalele has massive size at 379 pounds, but he has shocking quickness and athleticism for someone his size.

  21. Las Vegas Raiders: Quay Walker, LB, Georgia
    The Raiders have endured issues at linebacker for quite some time, so perhaps they’ll use this pick to fill that need.

    Pick change; previously Christian Harris, LB

  22. New England Patriots: Logan Hall, DE, Houston
    The Patriots could use edge-rushing help to allow them to defeat Josh Allen.

    Logan Hall is a long, athletic edge rusher who has enjoyed a great 2021 campaign.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
    The Cardinals had major problems at cornerback last year, thanks in part to Malcolm Butler’s departure.

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

    Pick change; previously Andrew Booth Jr., CB



  24. Dallas Cowboys: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State
    The Cowboys continue to have huge problems in the secondary that they must address.

    Jaquan Brisker is an instinctive safety with good speed.

  25. Buffalo Bills: Jayln Armour-Davis, CB, Alabama
    The Bills have the best pass defense in the NFL, but there’s something to be said about bolstering a strength, especially when the goal each year is to beat Patrick Mahomes.

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

  26. Atlanta Falcons: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati
    Calvin Ridley may never play football again. Even if he does, the Falcons need to find a receiver to replace Julio Jones as well.

    The 6-3 Alec Pierce has a great size and speed combination.



  27. Green Bay Packers: Drake Jackson, DE/DT, USC
    The Packers have been weak to the run for way too long. They need to do something to fix this issue.

    Drake Jackson has been great as an edge player, but he could fill out and become a five-technique.

  28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sevyn Banks, CB, Ohio State
    Cornerback is the one weak group on Tampa Bay’s roster.

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

  29. San Francisco 49ers: R.J. Roderick, S, South Carolina
    Jaquiski Tartt is an impending free agent who may have to be replaced.

    NFL advance scouts have been very impressed with R.J. Roderick, according to Charlie Campbell.

  30. Kansas City Chiefs: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
    The Chiefs have struggled against No. 2 receivers this season. Here’s some help for the secondary.

    Kaiir Elam has a good mix of length and quickness.

  31. Cincinnati Bengals: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
    The Bengals have needed linebacker help since Vontaze Burfict left the team. Logan Wilson has played well, but another linebacker is needed.

    Pick change; previously Quay Walker, LB

  32. Denver Broncos: Chasen Hines, G, LSU
    The Broncos could use an upgrade on the offensive line, particularly in the interior.

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