  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tyler Linderbaum, C/G, Iowa
    The Jaguars must protect Trevor Lawrence, which is a big problem because Brandon Linder retired. Jacksonville has to be thrilled to be getting this sort of a prospect atop Round 2.

    Tyler Linderbaum is coming off an amazing year. He can play guard as well, but would be much better at center.

  2. Detroit Lions: Lewis Cine, S, Georgia
    The Lions have huge holes throughout their roster, and their secondary is no exception.

    Lewis Cine is coming off a terrific year for Georgia, patrolling the middle of the field during the team’s championship run.

    Pick change; previously Kaiir Elam, CB

  3. New York Jets: Quay Walker, LB, Georgia
    The Jets sorely need to upgrade the middle of their defense.

  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. This pick would still make sense if New York takes an edge player at No. 5 or 7.

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

  5. Houston Texans: Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
    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.

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

  6. New York Jets: Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma
    The Jets need help everywhere, and that includes the interior of the defensive line.

    Perrion Winfrey dominated the trenches in 2020, especially late in the season.

    Pick change; previously Kenneth Walker, RB

  7. Chicago Bears: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
    The Bears lost Allen Robinson to the Rams, so they have nothing at receiver beyond Darnell Mooney.

    Skyy Moore is a speedy receiver with great run-after-catch ability. He thrived at the combine.

    Pick change; previously Alec Pierce, WR

  8. Seattle Seahawks: Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss
    The Seahawks need to find a new franchise quarterback in the wake of trading Russell Wilson. Drew Lock is obviously not the answer.

    Matt Corral developed well under Lane Kiffin, completing 71 percent of his passes in 2020. The Seahawks like Corral, per a report from Charlie Campbell in the NFL Hot Press, so this lines up well.

  9. Seattle Seahawks: Sam Williams, DE, Ole Miss
    Two pass rushers in three picks is possible. The Seahawks had a severe issue getting to the quarterback last year. Given that they are in a division with Kyler Murray and Matthew Stafford, that must change quickly.

    Sam Williams is very talented, but has character concerns.

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

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

  11. Atlanta Falcons: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
    The Falcons will need a long-term answer at quarterback despite signing Marcus Mariota.

    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: George Pickens, WR, Georgia
    The Browns acquired Amari Cooper, but Deshaun Watson still needs another receiver.

    George Pickens has nice size (6-3), tremendous athleticism and a wide catch radius. He has some character issues, but nothing egregious.

  13. Baltimore Ravens: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
    The Ravens had severe coverage issues last year that they must address early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    Kaiir Elam has a good mix of length and quickness.

    Pick change; previously DeMarvin Leal, DE/DT

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Ed Ingram, G, LSU
    The Vikings have a huge hole at guard. It’s too early to address the position at No. 12, so they can find help here.

    Ed Ingram is a tough run blocker who has displayed some athleticism.

    Pick change; previously Nakobe Dean, LB

  15. Washington Redskins: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
    The Redskins had major problems at cornerback last year, so they could address the position early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

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

  16. Chicago Bears: Nick Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State
    The Bears already had offensive line woes, and that was before losing James Daniels in free agency. They need an upgrade at nearly every position up front.

    Nick Petit-Frere has moved from right tackle to the blind side this year and has played very well.

  17. New Orleans Saints: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati
    The Saints could double up on receivers early in the 2022 NFL Draft, given their huge need at the position.

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

    Pick change; previously Skyy Moore, WR

  18. Kansas City Chiefs: Wan’Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky
    It’s going to take more than one player to replace Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs could easily double up on receivers in the first two rounds.

    Wan’Dale Robinson has game-breaking speed.

  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
    Many expect the Eagles to address the linebacker position at Nos. 15 or 18. That could happen, but given the team’s history of eschewing linebackers in the first round, I think it’s more likely that they obtain an answer at the position in the second frame.

    Pick change; previously Roger McCreary, CB

  20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
    As noted in the first round, the Steelers could wait until this pick to obtain a quarterback if they can’t get Malik Willis.

    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.

  21. Green Bay Packers: Travis Jones, NT, Connecticut
    The Packers have struggled to stop the run in recent years, so perhaps they’ll do something about it early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

  22. New England Patriots: Alontae Taylor, CB/S, Tennessee
    The Patriots could use some youth in their secondary, and Bill Belichick is always down for obtaining versatile players.

    The speedy Alontae Taylor has put together some great tape as a corner in the SEC. He can also play safety.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Kenneth Walker, RB, Michigan State
    The Cardinals lost Chase Edmonds this offseason. James Conner was re-signed, but he has never played a full season in the NFL, so Arizona will want to use an early pick on a running back.

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

    Pick change; previously Cam Taylor-Britt, 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: Sean Rhyan, G, UCLA
    The Bills did well to sign Rodger Saffold this offseason, but they still need one more guard to bolster Josh Allen’s protection.

    Pick change; previously Ed Ingram, G

  26. Atlanta Falcons: Josh Paschal, DE, Kentucky
    It’s been a long time since the Falcons have generated a great pass rush.

    Josh Paschal is stout as a run defender, and he can also get some pressure on the quarterback.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
    The Packers almost have to spend two of their first four selections on receivers in the wake of Davante Adams’ departure.

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

    Pick change; previously Calvin Austin, WR

  28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nik Bonitto, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    Jason Pierre-Paul is a free agent, so the Buccaneers will want to add an edge rusher to go along with Shaq Barrett and Joe Tryon.

    Nik Bonitto is a tweener, but can serve as an edge-rushing specialist in a 3-4 system.

    Pick change; previously Drake Jackson, DE

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Boye Mafe, DE, Minnesota
    It’s been reported that Dee Ford won’t return in 2022, so the 49ers will need another edge rusher.

    Boye Mafe seems to have a wide range. Some teams believe he could be chosen in the first round, while others believe he’s a Day 2 vanilla left end.

  30. Kansas City Chiefs: DeMarvin Leal, DE/DT, Texas A&M
    The Chiefs need another edge rusher, especially with all the talented quarterbacks suddenly in the AFC.

    DeMarvin Leal was dominant to close out the 2020 campaign, so he had lots of promise heading into 2021. He ended up recording 8.5 sacks.

    Pick change; previously Logan Hall, DE

  31. Cincinnati Bengals: Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska
    The Bengals brought in eight cornerbacks for top-30 visits, so they’re definitely serious about addressing the position early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Christian Harris, LB

  32. Denver Broncos: Drake Jackson, DE, USC
    The Broncos signed Randy Gregory, but he’s just a short-term option across from Bradley Chubb. Besides, the Broncos need as much pass-rushing help as possible, considering the passing talent in their division.

    Pick change; previously Martin Emerson, CB
