  1. Houston Texans: Peter Skoronski, OT/C, Northwestern
    The Texans were considering Ikem Ekwonu and Evan Neal at No. 3, but they selected Derek Stingley instead. They’ll have to find their tackle next April.

    Peter Skoronski is an athletic tackle who has kept his quarterback clean. He can play center as well.

  2. Chicago Bears: Antonio Johnson, CB, Texas A&M
    The Bears need everything, and that includes cornerback help to defend all the talented receivers in the NFC North.

    Antonio Johnson is a huge 6-3 cornerback who performed at a high level this past season.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Richard Jibunor, DE, Troy
    The Falcons have lacked a dynamic pass rush since the days of John Abraham. This area must be addressed at some point.

    Richard Jibunor needs to bulk up for the NFL, but he has immense pass-rushing potential.



  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Fabian Lovett, DT, Florida State
    The Jaguars have been searching for a replacement for Calais Campbell for quite some time.

    Fabien Lovett is an athletic defensive tackle who can play in the 4-3 or 3-4.

  5. Seattle Seahawks: Jeremy Banks, LB, Tennessee
    The Seahawks will need help at linebacker with Bobby Wagner now on the Rams.

    Pick change; previously Jayden Daniels, QB



  6. New York Giants: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson
    The Giants are another team that will be looking to bolster the middle of their defense.

    Trenton Simpson is a quick and ahtletic linebacker.

  7. New York Jets: Jay Ward, S, LSU
    The Jets may have to obtain a safety early in the 2023 NFL Draft, depending on how the production is next to Jordan Whitehead.



  8. Washington Redskins: R.J. Roderick, S, Miami
    The Redskins continue to address their secondary, as they’ll need to find an answer at safety.

    NFL advance scouts have been very impressed with R.J. Roderick, according to Charlie Campbell.

  9. Pittsburgh Steelers: Turner Corcoran, OT, Nebraska
    The Steelers did not address their offensive line enough in the 2022 NFL Draft. Kenny Pickett needs better protection.



  10. Tennessee Titans: Zion Tupuola-Fetui, DE/OLB, Washington
    The Titans could use an edge rusher to eventually take over for Bud Dupree.

    Zion Tupuola-Fetui tore his Achilles tendon early last year, but he managed to return to action late that season.

  11. Carolina Panthers: Javion Cohen, G, Alabama
    The Panthers need to continue to strengthen their offensive line.

    Javion Cohen is a strong interior lineman with plenty of power.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Demarvioun Overshown, LB, Texas
    The Saints had interest in Quay Walker at No. 19, but opted for a tackle instead. Here’s the linebacker help they were seeking.

    Demarvioun Overshown was flying all over the field in Texas’ impressive Week 1 win versus Louisiana.

  13. Dallas Cowboys: Brenton Cox, DE/OLB, Florida
    The Cowboys have a strong pass rush, but they must replace Randy Gregory soon.

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

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Ventrell Miller, LB, Florida
    Minnesota’s linebacking corps is weak outside of Eric Kendricks, so here’s some help.

    Ventrell Miller is a fast linebacker who has become a nice play-maker in Florida’s defense.

  15. New England Patriots: Ali Gaye, DE, LSU
    The Patriots will need as many talented pass rushers as possible to combat Josh Allen and the other talented quarterbacks in the AFC.

  16. Miami Dolphins: Myles Jones, CB, Texas A&M
    Miami may trade Byron Jones at some point, given the rumors always circulating about him being dealt.

    Myles Jones is a 6-3 cornerback, but needs to pack on some muscle onto his frame.

  17. Las Vegas Raiders: Avery Roberts, LB, Oregon State
    The Raiders will be looking for a long-term solution at linebacker at some point.



  18. Baltimore Ravens: D.J. Ivey, CB, Miami
    Between the improved passing attacks in the conference, and the issues at the position last year, the Ravens must address cornerback.

  19. Indianapolis Colts: Nick Broeker, OT/G, Ole Miss
    The Colts still have a hole on their offensive line despite drafting Bernhard Raimann.

    Nick Broeker may have to switch to guard in the NFL.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Kendall Milton, RB, Georgia
    How much longer can James Conner hold up as Arizona’s starting running back.

    Kendall Milton is a big and quick running back with huge potential.

  21. Detroit Lions: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU
    Detroit could pursue a quarterback to challenge Jared Goff.

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

  22. Green Bay Packers: Davis Allen, TE, Clemson
    Here’s another weapon for Aaron Rodgers, who needs a better tight end than Robert Tonyan.

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Cameron Latu, TE, Alabama
    Travis Kelce will turn 34 after the 2023 NFL Draft, so the Chiefs will need to think about finding a successor.

    Cameron Latu has good size and athleticism.

  24. Cleveland Browns: Zach Harrison, DE, Ohio State
    Cleveland’s pass rush is a bit weak, which is a problem, given how many great passing attacks reside in the AFC.

  25. Philadelphia Eagles: Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB, TCU
    The Eagles were considering a cornerback at No. 18 before they traded the pick for A.J. Brown.

    Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is only 5-9, but he has great coverage skills as a fast and athletic prospect.

  26. San Francisco 49ers: Christopher Smith, S, Georgia
    I’m shocked the 49ers didn’t upgrade safety in the 2022 NFL Draft. They may regret that.

  27. Seattle Seahawks: Sevyn Banks, CB, Ohio State
    Seattle’s secondary will likely struggle in 2022, and that will have fans yearning for the days of the Legion of Boom.

  28. Los Angeles Chargers: Kamari Morales, TE, North Carolina
    I have my doubts about Gerald Everett holding down the fort as the Chargers’ starting tight end for very long.

  29. Los Angeles Rams: Gervon Dexter, DE/DT, Florida
    The Rams could stand to add more talent around Aaron Donald on their defensive line.

    Gervon Dexter is a lengthy defensive lineman with plus quickness and strength.

  30. Cincinnati Bengals: Will Mallory, TE, Miami
    Cincinnati had strong interest in Trey McBride in the second round, but he was plucked off the board before the team was on the clock.

  31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sa’Vell Smalls, DE/OLB, Washington
    More pass-rushing help doesn’t hurt, especially when your primary goal is taking down Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford.



  32. Buffalo Bills: Ryan Hayes, G/OT, Michigan
    The Bills still have a hole at guard they need to plug.

    Ryan Hayes struggled against Georgia in the 2022 college football semi-final. He may have to move to guard.
