  1. Kansas City Chiefs: Chris Rodriguez, RB, Kentucky Kentucky
    The Chiefs could draft a running back to pair with Isiah Pacheco.

    Chris Rodriguez is a power back who gets nice yards after contact.

  2. Houston Texans: Walter Rouse, OT, Stanford
    The Texans could stand to add some depth on the offensive line to protect Davis Mills.

    Walter Rouse did well to improve during his time at Stanford.

  3. Arizona Cardinals: Brandon Joseph, S, Notre Dame Notre Dame
    Budda Baker has requested a trade, so the Cardinals need safety help.

    Brandon Joseph is a turnover machine with great instincts.



  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Payne Durham, TE, Purdue
    Cameron Brate is gone, so the Buccaneers will want to add another tight end.

  5. Los Angeles Rams: Darius Robinson, DE/DT, Missouri
    The Rams don’t have much at defensive tackle – except for Aaron Donald, of course!

    Darius Robinson has nice size and length.



  6. Detroit Lions: Chandler Zavala, G, N.C. State
    The Lions have an elite offensive line, but it never hurts to have depth up front.

  7. New England Patriots: Villami Fehoko, DE, San Jose State
    Teams will always be looking to add promising pass rushers in the final rounds.

    Villami Fehoko made good improvements to his game throughout his career at San Jose State.



  8. Jacksonville Jaguars: Cooper Hodges, OT, Appalachian State
    The Jaguars will need to draft multiple offensive linemen to make sure Trevor Lawrence is well protected.

  9. Tennessee Titans: Ventrell Miller, LB, Florida
    The Titans lost David Long, so they’ll need to find some linebacker help.

    Ventrell Miller is a physical run defender.



  10. New England Patriots: J.L. Skinner, S/LB, Boise State Boise State
    Here’s a typical box safety Bill Belichick loves to acquire.

    J.L. Skinner may have to move to linebacker in the NFL.

  11. Houston Texans: Darrian Dalcourt, C, Alabama
    The Texans could stand to upgrade their center position. That could occur much earlier than this.

    Darrian Dalcourt has some size limitations for the NFL.

  12. Los Angeles Rams: Javontae Jean-Baptiste, DE, Ohio State
    It’ll take multiple pass rushers to replace Von Miller.

    Javonte Jean-Baptiste has never lived up to expectations. He needs to fill out his frame.

  13. Cleveland Browns: Jake Haener, QB, Fresno State
    The Browns might be interested in finding a better developmental quarterback behind Deshaun Watson.

    Jake Haener is an accurate quarterback, but missed some time with an injury.



  14. Los Angeles Rams: Owen Pappoe, LB, Auburn
    The Rams lost Bobby Wagner, so they’ll need to obtain a linebacker at some point.

    Owen Pappoe has a dubious injury history, though he remained healthy last year and performed well.

  15. New England Patriots: Cam Jones, LB, Indiana
    The Patriots could stand to add a linebacker with upside.

    Cam Jones wasn’t as productive as talent evaluators believed he would be at Indiana.

  16. Washington Redskins: Antonio Mafi, G, UCLA
    Given that the Redskins have to battle the fierce Philadelphia and Dallas pass rushes twice per year, they need as much offensive line help as they can get.

  17. Detroit Lions: Stetson Bennett, QB, Georgia Georgia
    The Lions will likely be searching for a developmental quarterback on Day 3.

    Stetson Bennett was very clutch in big games for Georgia. He’ll look to become the next Brock Purdy or Colt McCoy.

  18. Denver Broncos: Keaton Mitchell, RB, East Carolina
    Javonte Williams is unlikely to be ready for the start of the season, so the Broncos will need to find another running back.



  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Isaiah Moore, LB, N.C. State N.C. State
    There’s some chatter about Devin White being traded, so here’s a linebacker for the Buccaneers.

    Isaiah Moore has a knee injury history, but is otherwise a solid, do-it-all linebacker.

  20. Miami Dolphins: Arquon Bush, CB, Cincinnati
    The Dolphins traded for Jalen Ramsey, but they could still stand to get deeper at cornerback.

    Arquon Bush wasn’t a starter for long in Cincinnati because there were talented players ahead of him, including Sauce Gardner.

  21. Seattle Seahawks: Robert Cooper, DT, Florida State
    The Seahawks are thin on the defensive line, so I would expect them to spend numerous picks to fix this problem.

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Cory Trice, CB, Purdue
    The Ravens need better depth at cornerback, so they could spend multiple picks on the position.

    Cory Trice missed most of his ’21 season with a knee injury. He’s a tall, lengthy cornerback with upside.

  23. Los Angeles Chargers: Mohamoud Diabate, LB, Utah
    The Chargers don’t have a strong linebacking corps, so they could address the position much earlier than this.

    Mohamoud Diabate didn’t have a very impressive year for Utah this past season. His coverae skills are lackluster.

  24. Houston Texans: Marte Marpu, LB, Sacramento State
    The Texans made a nice signing in obtaining Denzel Perryman, but they could still stand to add a couple of linebackers in the draft.

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: DeWayne McBride, RB, UAB
    The Jaguars signed D’Ernest Johnson this offseason, but they may want to add someone to challenge him for the No. 2 spot.

  26. Houston Texans: Brodric Martin, DT, Western Kentucky
    Expect Houston to acquire a couple of defensive tackles to help its horrible run defense.

  27. Las Vegas Raiders: D.J. Johnson, DE, Oregon
    The Raiders have a strong edge rush, but they could stand to improve their depth in that area.

    D.J. Johnson showed off his freakish athletic ability at the combine.

  28. Buffalo Bills: Tank Dell, WR, Houston
    The Bills have shown lots of interest in Tank Dell, so perhaps they’ll select him on Day 3 to help their receiving corps.

  29. Cincinnati Bengals: Kahlef Hailassie, CB, Western Kentucky
    The Bengals could easily pursue a cornerback earlier than this, as the secondary must be addressed.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Ryan Miller, WR, Furman Furman
    Here’s another receiver for a team that is desperate for help at the position.

  31. Jacksonville Jaguars: Richard Gouraige, OT/G, Florida Florida
    I’m sure Trevor Lawrence wouldn’t mind another blocker to help him remain upright.

    Richard Gouraige is a better run blocker than pass protector. He can move inside to guard.

  32. New York Giants: Tyjae Spears, RB, Tulane
    The Giants franchised Saquon Barkley, but that just means that may be gone after this upcoming season.

  33. New England Patriots: Dontayvion Wicks, WR, Virginia Virginia
    The Patriots figure to double up on receivers, given their need at the position.

    Dontayvion Wicks is a lengthy receiver who broke out during his ’21 season.

  34. Minnesota Vikings: Starling Thomas, CB, UAB UAB
    As I said earlier, three cornerbacks are in play for the Vikings.

  35. Dallas Cowboys: Caleb Murphy, DE, Ferris State
    The Cowboys need to beat the Eagles, so they need as many players as possible to harass Jalen Hurts.

  36. Arizona Cardinals: Tank Bigsby, RB, Auburn
    It wouldn’t surprise me if the Cardinals used a late-round pick on a running back to challenge for the No. 2 job.

  37. Las Vegas Raiders: Tre Hawkins, CB, Old Dominion
    No one should be shocked if the Raiders use multiple selections on cornerbacks.

  38. Washington Redskins: Ronnie Brown, RB, Shepherd
    J.D. McKissic is gone, while the coaching staff doesn’t seem to like Antonio Gibson very much.

  39. San Franciso 49ers: Shakel Brown, DE/DT, Troy
    The 49ers lost defensive line depth this offseason, so they’ll need to obtain some players in that area.

  40. Kansas City Chiefs: Jadon Haselwood, WR, Arkansas
    The Chiefs need to add a couple of receivers, given the lack of star talent they have at the position.

    Jadon Haselwood has flashed at times in college, but hasn’t been consistent.
