  1. Carolina Panthers: Baylon Spector, LB, Clemson
    The Panthers signed Cory Littleton to help their linebacking corps, but he struggled the past two years.

    Pick change; previously Josh Ross, LB

  2. Denver Broncos: Rachaad White, RB, Arizona State
    Melvin Gordon may leave in free agency. If he does, the Broncos will want a new running back to complement Javonte Williams.

    Rachaad White is an impressive recever out of the backfield.

    Pick change; previously D’Vonte Price, RB

  3. New York Jets: Thomas Booker, DE/DT, Stanford
    The Jets could stand to add a defensive lineman in the middle rounds.

  4. New York Giants: D’Vonte Price, RB, Florida International
    The Giants need to think about a future without Saquon Barkley if the dynamic back continues to spend most of his time on the injury report.

    D’Vonte Price has a nice combination of size and quickness.

    Pick change; previously Keontay Ingram, RB

  5. Chicago Bears: Josh Ross, LB, Michigan
    The Bears could use some help at linebacker, as Danny Trevathan is gone.

    Pick change; previously Romeo Doubs, WR

  6. Carolina Panthers: Justin Shaffer, G, Georgia
    The Panthers will be looking to add multiple offensive linemen in the 2022 NFL Draft to protect their new quarterback.

    Justin Shaffer is a massive guard who started one year.

  7. Chicago Bears: Braxton Jones, OT, Southern Utah
    The Bears have numerous free agent offensive linemen, so this is an area that must be addressed.

  8. Atlanta Falcons: Carson Wells, DE/OLB, Colorado
    The Falcons figure to add multiple edge rushers this offseason because they can’t get any pressure on the quarterback.

  9. Seattle Seahawks: Jaylen Watson, CB, Washington State
    The Seahawks lost D.J. Reed in free agency, so they’ll want to target a cornerback at some point.

  10. Seattle Seahawks: Smoke Monday, S, Auburn
    Jamal Adams has been a huge disappointment thus far.

    Smoke Monday has great tackling ability.

  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Aqeel Glass, QB, Alabama A&M
    The Eagles could take a chance on a quarterback in the middle rounds just in case Jalen Hurts regresses.

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

  12. Dallas Cowboys: Charleston Rambo, WR, Miami
    The Cowboys lost Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson this offseason, so here’s a replacement.

    Charleston Rambo has a slender frame, but he’s 6-1 with quality speed.

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Bailey Zappe, QB, Western Kentucky
    Kellen Mond was a disappointment last year, so the Vikings may want to find a new young quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Logan Bruss, G/OT

  14. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tyrese Robinson, G/OT, Oklahoma
    The Jaguars need to give Trevor Lawrence as much protection as possible.

    Tyrese Robinson played tackle and guard at Oklahoma. He’ll likely have to play guard in the NFL.

  15. New England Patriots: Dylan Parham, G/C, Memphis
    Another versatile offensive lineman for Bill Belichick. This time, it’s one who can play multiple interior positions.

  16. Indianapolis Colts: Dontario Drummond, WR, Ole Miss
    The Colts have to find a receiver with T.Y. Hilton nearing retirement.

  17. Los Angeles Chargers: JoJo Doman, LB, Nebraska
    The Chargers could use some better depth at linebacker if Kyzir White leaves via free agency.

  18. New Orleans Saints: Jesse Luketa, LB, Penn State
    The Saints have some impending free agent linebackers they may need to replace.

  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Isaiah Pola-Moa, S, USC
    The Eagles need multiple safeties, depending on whom they lose to free agency in March.

  20. New York Jets: Brad Hawkins, S, Michigan
    The Jets should add some depth to their secondary, as they’ll need to beat Josh Allen to win the AFC East.

  21. Las Vegas Raiders: Keontay Ingram, RB, USC
    The Raiders’ new regime is no longer married to Josh Jacobs, so Jacobs could be moved at some point.

    Keontay Ingram has some nice receiving ability.

  22. Las Vegas Raiders: Nick Grant, S, Virginia
    The Raiders could stand to add more talent to their secondary, given that they have to face Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert twice per year.

    Nick Grant is a tall and rangy safety.

  23. Philadelphia Eagles: Matthew Butler, DT, Tennessee
    The Eagles will be looking for a defensive tackle in the future as a potential successor for Fletcher Cox.

  24. Dallas Cowboys: C.J. Verdell, RB, Oregon
    Ezekiel Elliott has disappointed the past two years, so perhaps the Cowboys will be interested in a late-round running back.

  25. Buffalo Bills: Yusuf Corker, S, Kentucky
    The Bills have some aging safeties, so they may want some young blood at the position.

  26. Tennessee Titans: D’Marco Jackson, LB, Appalachian State
    The Titans lost Jayon Brown in free agency, so they’ll have to find a replacement.

  27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Velus Jones, WR, Tennessee
    Chris Godwin may not be able to play for the first half of 2022 because of his torn ACL.

  28. Green Bay Packers: Isaiah Thomas, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    Za’Darius Smith was released, so the Packers will want to add an edge rusher at some point.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Pierre Strong, RB, South Dakota State
    The 49ers lost Raheem Mostert, so they may use a mid-round pick on a running back.

    Pick change; previously Isaiah Chambers, DE

  30. New York Giants: Xavier Thomas, DE, Clemson
    Here’s another edge player for the Giants, who really need to improve their ability to get to the quarterback.

  31. Cincinnati Bengals: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College
    The Bengals may want to find someone to compete with Ted Karras at center.

  32. Los Angeles Rams: Kellen Diesch, OT, Arizona State
    The Rams have Joseph Noteboom to replace the retired Andrew Whitworth, but they’ll need to find depth.

  33. Dallas Cowboys: Jake Ferguson, TE, Wisconsin
    It might be too expensive for the Cowboys to keep Dalton Schultz in 2023 and beyond.

  34. Detroit Lions: Matt Waletzko, OT, North Dakota
    Taylor Decker has been the subject of some trade rumors, so the Lions may draft a tackle.

  35. Dallas Cowboys: Eyioma Uwazurike, DT, Iowa State
    The Cowboys will want to add more talent to their defensive line in the middle rounds.

  36. Indianapolis Colts: Lecitus Smith, G, Virginia Tech
    The Colts lost Mark Glowinski in free agency, so they’ll need to find a new guard to compete for the job.
