  1. Houston Texans: John Metchie, WR, Alabama
    Will Fuller is gone, while Brandin Cooks is a ticking time bomb. The Texans are desperate for receiver help.

    John Metchie has a tendency to make big plays for Alabama’s offense.

  2. Detroit Lions: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
    The Lions need some cornerback help across from Jeff Okudah.

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

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: Shane Lee, LB, Alabama
    The Eagles have one of the worst linebacking corps in the NFL that they need to address.

    Shane Lee was able to start as a freshman because of Dylan Moses’ torn ACL, and he was impressive.

  4. Green Bay Packers: Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
    The Packers could finally obtain a solid No. 2 receiver with this pick.

    Garrett Wilson caught 30 passes as a freshman and then 43 as a sophomore. He’ll have more of an opportunity next year, given his tremendous upside.

    Pick change; previously Owen Pappoe, LB



  5. Atlanta Falcons: Master Teague, RB, Ohio State
    How did the Falcons not draft a running back? That was one of the most shocking things of draft weekend!

    Master Teague had some explosive performances in his first two seasons.

  6. New York Jets: Damone Clark, LB, LSU
    The Jets need to improve the middle of their weak defense.

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

  7. Las Vegas Raiders: Chasen Hines, G, LSU
    Despite selecting Alex Leatherwood in the opening round, the Raiders still need to improve their regressing offensive line.

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

    Pick change; previously Kenyon Green, G

  8. New York Jets: Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
    The Jets waited until the fifth round to take a running back, so they could address that need with this pick.

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



  9. Dallas Cowboys: Cade Mays, OT, Tennessee
    How much longer can Tyron Smith last in the NFL? It seems as though he’s been injured ever since his infamous bulging disc.

    Cade Mays was a five-star recruit, and he has the potential to be an elite left tackle.

  10. Cincinnati Bengals: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State
    Riley Reiff is just a temporary solution at tackle. The Bengals will need help there for the long haul.

    Rasheed Walker could be a first-round pick if he lives up to his potential. He has quick feet for a player his size (6-6, 324).

  11. Jacksonville Jaguars: LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama
    The Jaguars need to find a replacement for Calais Campbell after all these years.

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



  12. New England Patriots: Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
    The Patriots can’t possibly win with Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne as their top receivers. Mac Jones needs help.

    Chris Olave has a good mix of size (6-1, 185) and speed. He was a big play-maker at the end of 2019.

  13. New Orleans Saints: Jadon Haselwood, WR, Oklahoma
    The Saints have needed a No. 2 receiver across from Michael Thomas for quite some time.

    Jadon Haselwood is a large (6-2, 206) receiver who showcased his big-time play-making ability as a mere freshman.

    Pick change; previously Garrett Wilson, WR



  14. Pittsburgh Steelers: Brandon Smith, DE/OLB, Penn State
    The Steelers will need to find a replacement for Bud Dupree at some point.

    Brandon Smith hasn’t done much yet at Penn State, but he’s a very athletic edge rusher with tremendous upside.

  15. Tennessee Titans: Baylor Cupp, TE, Texas A&M
    The Titans lost Jonnu Smith, so here’s a replacement for him.

    Baylor Cupp is a tremendous athlete with great size (6-6, 245), but he missed 2019 with a fractured leg.






  16. New York Giants: Luke Matthews, C, Texas A&M
    Center is still a weakness for the Giants, so this is a way to give Daniel Jones more help.

    The latest member of the famed Matthews family to enter the NFL, Luke Matthews is a very intelligent blocker who can play both guard and center.

  17. Minnesota Vikings: Isaac Taylor-Stuart, CB, USC
    Jeff Gladney has developed some off-the-field issues, so the Vikings may give up on him in the near future.

    Isaac Taylor-Stuart will have to answer questions about voicing his displeasure with the USC coaching staff during his freshman season.



  18. Seattle Seahawks: Logan Brown, OT, Wisconsin
    Will the Seahawks ever fix their offensive line? Perhaps this will be the time.

    Logan Brown has amazing power as a former five-star recruit.

    Pick change; previously Chasen Hines, G




  19. Chicago Bears: Wanya Morris, OT, Tennessee
    The Bears used a second-round pick on Teven Jenkins, but they then cut Charles Leno, so they still need a tackle.

    Wanya Morris was one of the most athletic offensive tackles coming out of his high school class; he was graded as a five-star recruit.

    Pick change; previously Logan Brown, OT

  20. Miami Dolphins: Christopher Hinton, DE/DT, Michigan
    The Dolphins could stand to get stronger on the defensive line.

    Christopher Hinton didn’t get to do much as a freshman, but he has high upside and could be a major contributor in the near future.

  21. Indianapolis Colts: Trey Knox, WR, Arkansas
    T.Y. Hilton is a regressing player, so he’ll need to be replaced at some point in the near future.

    Trey Knox has both the size (6-5, 218) and speed to be a first-round pick whenever he declares for the NFL Draft.

  22. Washington Redskins: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
    The Redskins will use an early pick on a quarterback if Taylor Heinicke disappoints.

    Malik Willis has a huge arm and great mobility, but struggles to process information and see the field very well.

    Pick change; previously Zacch Pickens, DT

  23. Los Angeles Chargers: Zacch Pickens, DT, South Carolina
    The Chargers will give Jerry Tillery one more chance to prove himself before replacing him.

    Zacch Pickens has been impressing in practice, so perhaps he’ll be able to be dominant on the field in 2020.

    Pick change; previously Zachary Carter, DT



  24. Baltimore Ravens: Frank Ladson Jr., WR, Clemson
    The Ravens drafted Rashod Bateman in the first round, but they still could use another receiver.

    Frank Ladson Jr. didn’t get much of an opportunity in 2019 – he caught nine passes – but the five-star recruit will have a larger role next year.

  25. Arizona Cardinals: Zachary Carter, DT, Florida
    The Cardinals obtained J.J. Watt this offseason, but he’s obviously not a long-term solution on the defensive line.

    Pick change; previously Ed Ingram, G



  26. San Francisco 49ers: Thayor Munford, OT/G, Ohio State
    Can a rapidly aging Trent Williams stay healthy? I have my doubts.

    Thayor Munford must improve his ability to handle edge rushers.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Dom Peterson, DT, Nevada
    The Browns lost Sheldon Richardson, so they may want to obtain an interior presence on the defensive line.

  28. Buffalo Bills: Owen Pappoe, LB, Auburn
    Tremaine Edmunds might be on his way out next offseason, so here’s a potential replacement.

    Owen Pappoe is a freak athlete who saw significant time in Auburn’s defense as a freshman.

    Pick change; previously Ayodele Adeoye, LB

  29. Los Angeles Rams: Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State
    Much like the Jaguars, apparently, the Rams lost Gerald Everett, so he’ll need to be replaced.

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

  30. Denver Broncos: Ayodele Adeoye, LB, Texas
    The Broncos have been looking for linebacker help for quite some time, so maybe they’ll address that need with this pick.

    Pick change; previously Wanya Morris, OT

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Khalil Shakir, WR, Boise State
    Sammy Watkins is gone, so the Chiefs will want to find a No. 2 receiver at some point.

    Khalil Shakir is a versatile threat; he can thrive as a receiver while making big plays when lining up in the backfield.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: C.J. Verdell, RB, Oregon
    Leonard Fournette was re-signed for 2021, but he may not be around after this season.

    C.J. Verdell is a 200-pound back with explosive ability and plus catching skills. It didn’t take him very long to win the starting job as a redshirt freshman.
