  1. Chicago Bears: Olusegun Oluwatimi, C, Michigan Michigan
    Here’s one more offensive line upgrade for the Bears, who need a new center.

    Olusegun Oluwatimi could be limited to center because of a lack of length.

  2. Houston Texans: Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia Georgia
    The Texans signed Dalton Schultz, but they may want a dynamic second tight end.

    Darnell Washington is an excellent blocking tight end with underrated receiving talent. Major injury concerns could drop him, however.

  3. Arizona Cardinals: Malik Cunningham, QB, Louisville Louisville
    The Cardinals have some issues with Kyler Murray, so they may want to spend a mid-round pick on a quarterback.

    Malik Cunningham is a dual-threat quarterback with plenty of upside.



  4. Indianapolis Colts: Isaiah Foskey, DE, Notre Dame Notre Dame
    The Colts have to improve their pass rush to have a chance against an improving Trevor Lawrence.

    Isaiah Foskey had a huge 11-sack campaign. He possesses great potential.

    Pick change; previously Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB

  5. New England Patriots: Tyler Scott, WR, Cincinnati
    The Patriots signed JuJu Smith-Schuster, but still have a big need at wide receiver.

    Tyler Scott is a small slot receiver, but he has major quickness.



  6. Denver Broncos: Luke Schoonmaker, TE, Michigan Michigan
    Albert Okwuegbunam found himself in the dog house last year, so here’s someone else to pair with Greg Dulcich.

    Luke Schoonmaker did well in all regards when filling in for an injured Erick All.

  7. Las Vegas Raiders: Mike Morris, DE, Michigan Michigan
    The Raiders need all the pass-rushing depth they can get to make sure they constantly hound Patrick Mahomes.

    Mike Morris made big improvements as a pass-rusher during his final year.



  8. Atlanta Falcons: Sydney Brown, S, Illinois Illinois
    The Falcons had major problems stopping the pass last year, so they need to add talent to their secondary.

    Sydney Brown was a dynamic play-maker in his senior year.

  9. Cleveland Browns: Chase Brown, RB, Illinois Illinois
    Kareem Hunt and D’Ernest Johnson are free agents, so the Browns will need another running back.

    Chase Brown is a power runner with plus receiving ability.



  10. New York Jets: Max Duggan, QB, TCU
    The Jets may want to acquire a young quarterback to compete with Zach Wilson to be Aaron Rodgers’ potential successor.

    Max Duggan is a smart and tough quarterback who has a better arm than people give him credit for.

  11. Atlanta Falcons: Trey Palmer, WR, Nebraska Nebraska
    I suspect the Falcons will double up on receivers during the 2023 NFL Draft.

    Trey Palmer had a breakout campaign last year.

  12. Carolina Panthers: Byron Young, DE, Tennessee Tennessee
    Carolina’s pass rush wasn’t the same last year without Haason Reddick, so that will need to be addressed.

    Byron Young is undersized, but has dangerous speed and athleticism.

  13. New Orleans Saints: Aidan O’Connell, QB, Purdue Purdue
    The Saints could target a quarterback earlier than this, as they’ll need to find a franchise signal-caller for the long term.

    Aidan O’Connell has a nice arm, but possesses issues with accuracy.



  14. Green Bay Packers: Micah Baskerville, LB, LSU
    The Packers could stand to bolster the middle of the defense to help improve against the run.

    Micah Baskerville is a fast linebacker who hounded opposing running backs well at LSU.

  15. New England Patriots: Habakkuk Baldonado, DE/OLB, Pittsburgh Pittsburgh
    The Patriots could double up on pass rushers, given how many they hosted during the pre-draft process.

    Habakkuk Baldonado is a huge disruptor in the trenches.

  16. Washington Redskins: Zach Evans, RB, Ole Miss Ole Miss
    The Redskins could consider finding a new running back to pair with Brian Robinson.

    Zach Evans is undersized, but explosive.

  17. Minnesota Vikings: Zach Harrison, DE, Ohio State
    Two of the Vikings’ top three edge rushers will be 30 or older during the 2024 season. Some young edge-rushing talent could be acquired.

    Zach Harrison has nice potential with his athletic ability.

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Daniel Scott, S, California California
    The Steelers lost Terrell Edmunds in the offseason. Here’s a replacement.
    Daniel Scott has good size for the NFL.



  19. Jacksonville Jaguars: Yaya Diaby, DE, Louisville Louisville
    Jacksonville needs all the pass-rushing talent it can get, so doubling up on the position is a very strong possibility.

    Yaya Diaby has nice size and showed a strong pass-rushing ability when he recorded nine sacks last year. He had a tremendous 10-yard split at the combine.

  20. Kansas City Chiefs: Amari Burney, LB, Florida Florida
    It seems as though the Chiefs are always searching for linebacker help, and this offseason is no exception.

    Amari Burney has excellent coverage skills.

  21. Seattle Seahawks: Jordan McFadden, OT/G, Clemson Clemson
    Seattle had great offensive tackle play last year from its two rookies, but the interior blocking could stand to improve.

    Jordan McFadden may have to move to guard in the NFL.

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Jaxon Kirkland, G, Washington Washington
    Baltimore could stand to improve its pass protection for whichever quarterback starts under center for them next year.

    Jaxon Kirkland can play right tackle, but seems like a better fit at guard.

  23. Los Angeles Chargers: Moro Ojomo, DT, Texas Texas
    The Chargers figure to use an early pick or two on an interior defensive lineman, given their issues in that spot.

    Moro Ojomo is a good player, but happens to be a tweener.

  24. Cleveland Browns: Jammie Robinson, S, Florida State
    The Browns signed Juan Thornhill, but they could still use help at safety.

    Jammie Robinson has been a solid run defender for Florida State.

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Anthony Johnson, CB, Virginia Virginia
    Jacksonville struggled to stop the pass, so here’s some cornerback depth.

    Anthony Johnson is a big cornerback who needs to show that he’s agile enough to run with speed receivers.

  26. New York Giants: Jakorian Bennett, CB, Maryland Maryland
    The Giants have a weakness at cornerback that could be addressed as early as the first round.

    Jakorian Bennett was a steady corner for Maryland. He’ll probably have to play in the slot in the NFL.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Lacy, DE/DT, Oklahoma State
    The Cowboys could stand to improve in the interior of their defensive line.

  28. Buffalo Bills: Zacch Pickens, DT, South Carolina
    The Bills could stand to continue to improve their interior pass rush for their big showdowns against the Chiefs and Bengals.

    Zacch Pickens had a great ’21 campaign. He has plus size, quickness and athleticism.

  29. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Whyle, TE, Cincinnati Cincinnati
    The Bengals are not going to force a tight end in the first round. Instead, they’ll take one in the middle rounds.

    Josh Whyle produced well last year despite enduring inconsistent quarterback play.

    Pick change; previously Andrei Iosivas, WR

  30. Carolina Panthers: Blake Freeland, OT, BYU BYU
    The Panthers don’t have quality depth on the offensive line, which doesn’t sound good, given that they’ll have a rookie under center.

    Blake Freeland has potential, but is raw and inconsistent at the moment.

    Pick change; previously Keeanu Benton, DT

  31. Chicago Bears: Rashad Torrence, S, Florida Florida
    The Bears are razor thin in the secondary, so that needs to change.

    Rashad Torrence is a very instinctive safety.

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jaren Hall, QB, BYU BYU
    Chad Henne is gone, so the Chiefs may feel the need to find a new developmental quarterback.

    Jaren Hall is a rushing threat who has a quality arm.

  33. New England Patriots: Jalen Redmond, DT, Oklahoma Oklahoma
    Teams will never hesitate to add to their pass-rushing depth.

    Jalen Redmond is a quality player, but is a bit undersized.
