  1. Carolina Panthers: Cole Strange, G, UT-Chattanooga
    The Panthers will need to spend multiple picks on offensive linemen, or their quarterback won’t have a chance.

  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.

  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: Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada
    Receiver shouldn’t be a need, but Kenny Golladay was a huge disappointment last year, while Kadarius Toney has been the subject of trade rumors.

    Romeo Doubs had a nice Senior Bowl week to put him in the mid-round radar.

  5. Chicago Bears: Damarri Mathis, CB, Pittsburgh
    The Bears had big problems at cornerback last year that must be addressed.

  6. Carolina Panthers: Marcus Jones, CB, Houston
    The Panthers lost Stephon Gilmore to free agency, so they may want to spend a mid-round pick on cornerback depth.

  7. Chicago Bears: Tyquan Thornton, WR, Baylor
    The Bears have a huge weakness at receiver, so they’ll have to double up on the position.

  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: Logan Bruss, G/OT, Wisconsin
    The Seahawks will be looking to acquire multiple offensive linemen to improve their mediocre blocking.

    Logan Bruss played tackle at Wisconsin, but will likely have to move to guard in the NFL.

  10. Seattle Seahawks: Percy Butler, S, Louisiana-Lafayette
    Jamal Adams has been a huge disappointment thus far.

  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Brock Purdy, QB, Iowa State
    The Eagles could take a chance on a quarterback in the middle rounds just in case Jalen Hurts regresses.

    Pick change; previously Aqeel Glass, QB

  12. Dallas Cowboys: Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson
    The Cowboys lost Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson this offseason, so here’s a replacement.

    Justyn Ross is a 6-4, 210-pound monster who catches everything. Alabama had no answer for him in the national championship. Unfortunately, he missed all of 2020 with an injury.

  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.

  14. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kerby Joseph, S, Illinois
    The Jaguars have yet to address their secondary, which must occur at some point.

  15. New England Patriots: Jeremiah Moon, LB/DE, Florida
    Another versatile player for Bill Belichick. This time, Belichick grabs a defender who can play at linebacker or on the edge.

    Jeremiah Moon compiled some impressive testing numbers at the combine, showing off his excellent athleticism.

  16. Indianapolis Colts: Charleston Rambo, WR, Miami
    The Colts have to find a receiver with T.Y. Hilton nearing retirement.

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

  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: Keontay Ingram, RB, USC
    The Saints are looking for a viable, long-term backup behind Alvin Kamara.

    Keontay Ingram has some nice receiving ability.

  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Jesse Luketa, LB, Penn State
    More linebacker help for the Eagles, who really need to bolster the position.

  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: Danny Gray, WR, SMU
    The Raiders traded for Davante Adams, but they could still add another receiver to the mix.

  22. Las Vegas Raiders: Thayer Munford, G/OT, Ohio State
    Yet another offensive line upgrade for a team that can’t block very well.

  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: James Houston, LB, Jackson State
    The Cowboys are expected to obtain a linebacker at some point, given that they are thin at the position.

  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: Justin Shaffer, G, Georgia
    I’m sure the Titans would love to land Zion Johnson or Kenyon Green at No. 26 overall. If they can’t, they’ll have to settle for a mid-round guard.

    Pick change; previously D’Marco Jackson, LB

  27. Houston Texans: Verone McKinley, S, Oregon
    Here’s some more secondary help for a team that desperately needs it.

  28. Green Bay Packers: Velus Jones, WR, Tennessee
    A third receiver? No one should be surprised by this. The Packers really need help at wideout.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State
    The 49ers seem likely to double up at cornerback, given their woes there last year.

    Pick change; previously Jaylen Warren, RB

  30. New York Giants: Jeffrey Gunter, DE, Coastal Carolina
    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: Austin Deculus, OT, LSU
    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. I could see them adding another tight end.

  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.
