  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State
    The Jaguars need to add some protection to help Trevor Lawrence.

    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).

    Pick change; previously Darian Kinnard, OT

  2. Detroit Lions: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State
    The Lions have a major void of talent at receiver, so they’ll need to spend multiple early picks to address 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 Wan’Dale Robinson, WR

  3. New York Jets: Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah
    The Jets sorely need to upgrade the middle of their defense.

    Devin Lloyd can be used outside or inside in a 3-4 (or at linebacker in the 4-3), as he’s an athletic defender who has impressed as both a pass rusher and a coverage linebacker this year.

  4. Houston Texans: Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson
    Will Fuller is gone, while Brandin Cooks is a ticking time bomb. The Texans are desperate for receiver help.

    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.



  5. New York Giants: Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M
    The interior offensive line is still a weakness for the Giants, so this is a way to give Daniel Jones more help.

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

  6. 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.

  7. Seattle Seahawks: Carson Strong, QB, Nevada
    The Seahawks may decide to trade Russell Wilson and blow everything up this offseason. If so, here’s their new quarterback.

    Carson Strong completed 70 percent of his passes in 2020, all while maintaining a 27:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Strong has decent arm talent and could emerge as a first-round pick.

  8. New York Jets: Logan Hall, DE, Houston
    Here’s another edge rusher for the Jets, who need to put forth multiple resources into this area.

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



  9. 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.

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Phidarian Mathis, DT, Alabama
    The Falcons have no pass rush, so they need to add talent to their defensive line.

    Phidarian Mathis has excellent athleticism and upside.

  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Smith, LB, Penn State
    The Eagles have one of the worst linebacking corps in the NFL that they need to address. Brandon Smith hasn’t done much yet at Penn State, but he’s a very athletic linebacker with tremendous upside.



  12. Denver Broncos: Drake Jackson, DE/DT, USC
    The Broncos could stand to add some help to their defensive line.

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

  13. New Orleans Saints: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
    The Saints will obviously need to find a long-term replacement for Drew Brees.

    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.



  14. Cleveland Browns: Zachary Carter, DT, Florida
    The Browns lost Sheldon Richardson, so they may want to obtain an interior presence on the defensive line.

    Zachary Carter has the quickness and athleticism to perhaps sneak into the first round.

    Pick change; previously Travon Walker, DE/DT

  15. 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 Ed Ingram, G






  16. 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.

    Pick change; previously Isaiah Spiller, RB

  17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Darian Kinnard, OT, Kentucky
    The Steelers need to give their next quarterback better pass protection.

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

    Pick change; previously Jayden Daniels, QB

  18. Baltimore Ravens: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati
    The Ravens drafted Rashod Bateman in the first round, but they still could use another receiver.

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



  19. Minnesota Vikings: Ed Ingram, G, LSU
    The Vikings have a weak offensive line they’ll need to address this upcoming offseason.

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

    Pick change; previously Chasen Hines, G




  20. 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.

  21. Los Angeles Chargers: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
    The Chargers have a weakness at cornerback that they may want to address early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    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.

  22. Indianapolis Colts: Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota
    The Colts need a new left tackle, as Eric Fisher is just a temporary solution.

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

  23. Buffalo Bills: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
    Tremaine Edmunds might be on his way out next offseason, so here’s a potential replacement.

  24. Denver Broncos: Jayden Daniels, QB, Arizona State
    The Broncos have to find a new quarterback. Their main goal is signing Aaron Rodgers next offseason, but if they can’t do that, they’ll need to spend an early pick on the position.

    Jayden Daniels has nice upside and could be a second-round selection.

    Pick change; previously Desmond Ridder, QB



  25. Cincinnati Bengals: Zakoby McClain, LB, Auburn
    The Bengals have needed linebacker help since Vontaze Burfict left the team. Logan Wilson has played well, but another linebacker is needed.

    Zakoby McClain is a tackling machine who needs to improve his pass coverage.

  26. Atlanta Falcons: Brenton Cox, DE/OLB, Florida
    The Falcons haven’t possessed a potent edge rusher in a long while. They can begin to bolster their defense by finding one.

    Brenton Cox has a nice skill set and plenty of athleticism and upside.



  27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Alontae Taylor, CB, Tennessee
    Cornerback is the one weak group on Tampa Bay’s roster.

    The speedy Alontae Taylor has put together some great tape as a corner in the SEC.

  28. Arizona Cardinals: Nick Bonitto, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    Both Chandler Jones and J.J. Watt are in their 30s, so they’ll need to find some successors.

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

  29. New England Patriots: Amare Barno, DE, Virginia Tech
    The Patriots could use edge-rushing help to allow them to defeat Josh Allen.

    NFL advance scouts were impressed with Amare Barno’s 2020 tape that saw him accumulate 6.5 sacks.

  30. Dallas Cowboys: Smoke Monday, S, Auburn
    The Cowboys continue to have huge problems in the secondary that they must address.

    Smoke Monday has great tackling ability.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
    The Chiefs are known to struggle against the run, but they also struggle against the pass. Here’s some help for the secondary.

    Kaiir Elam has a good mix of length and quickness.

  32. Green Bay Packers: LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama
    The Packers have been weak to the run for way too long. They need to do something to fix this issue.

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

    Pick change; previously DeMarvin Leal, DE/DT
