NFL Team Logo for Cardinals Arizona Cardinals: Ennis Rakestrawe, CB, Missouri

Cornerback is a huge issue for the Cardinals, so they may address the position twice in the early rounds.

Ennis Rakestraw is a versatile defensive back with quality size.

NFL Team Logo for Redskins Washington Redskins: Kris Abrams-Draine, CB, Missouri Image for Mizz

Emmanuel Forbes looks like a bust thus far, but he still has time to develop. Nevertheless, the Redskins need help for their putrid secondary.

Kris Abrams-Draine has plus athleticism, but needs to get stronger for the NFL.

NFL Team Logo for Patriots New England Patriots: Matt Goncalves, OT, Pittsburgh Image for PITT

The Patriots have massive pass-protection issues that they must address.

Pick change; previously Kingsley Suamatia, OT

NFL Team Logo for Chargers Los Angeles Chargers: Chop Robinson, OLB/DE, Penn State Image for PSU

Joey Bosa struggles to stay healthy, while Khalil Mack is entering his mid-30s.

Chop Robinson is a productive player, but has some size limitations.

Pick change; previously Mohamed Kamara, DE/OLB

NFL Team Logo for Giants New York Giants: Joe Milton, QB, Tennessee Image for UT

The Giants need to develop a young quarterback behind Daniel Jones, given Jones’ constant incompetence.

Joe Milton has a huge arm and solid accuracy.

NFL Team Logo for Cardinals Arizona Cardinals: Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson Image for Clem

The Cardinals need players who can help them stop the run.

Ruke Orhorhoro has a nice frame and decent upside, and he can play in both the 4-3 and 3-4.

NFL Team Logo for Jets New York Jets: Patrick Paul, OT, Houston Image for Houst

The Jets need multiple upgrades for their putrid offensive line.

Patrick Paul has plus athleticism and length.

NFL Team Logo for Lions Detroit Lions: Tahveon Nicholson, CB, Illinois Image for ILL

Here’s another cornerback for the Lions, who really need to address their secondary.

Tahveon Nicholson has some size concerns, but should do well in the slot.

Pick change; previously Maason Smith, DT

NFL Team Logo for Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Calean Carson, CB, Wake Forest

The Falcons were weak to slot receivers this year, so they’ll need to address this area of their secondary.

Calean Carson has plus speed, size, and movement skills.

NFL Team Logo for Bears Chicago Bears: Adisa Isaac, DE, Penn State Image for PSU

The Bears were much better with Montez Sweat, but they need another edge player.

Adisa Isaac is a good run defender with a plus frame. His pass rushing needs to improve.

NFL Team Logo for Broncos Denver Broncos: Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan Image for MICH

There’s talk that Jerry Jeudy could be traded, so the Broncos will need another receiver.

Roman Wilson has plus speed and quickness, and he’s a quality route-runner.

NFL Team Logo for Raiders Las Vegas Raiders: Mike Sainristill, CB, Michigan

As great as the Raiders defense was this past season, they still struggled versus outside receivers.

Mike Sainristill made many clutch plays during the championship run.

NFL Team Logo for Seahawks Seattle Seahawks: Payton Wilson, LB, N.C. State Image for NC State

Bobby Wagner is not going to be around forever, so here’s a future replacement.

Payton Wilson has had mixed evaluations. He flew all over the field for N.C. State.

Pick change; previously James Williams, LB/S

NFL Team Logo for Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Zak Zinter, G, Michigan Image for MICH

The Falcons could stand to add an upgrade in the interior of their offensive line.

Zak Zinter is a steady pass protector and a stellar run blocker.

NFL Team Logo for Bengals Cincinnati Bengals: T'Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas Image for Tex

Cincinnati had one of the worst run defenses in the NFL this past season.

T’Vondre Sweat is a massive player and a great athlete for a player his size. He has drawn comparisons to Jordan Davis.

NFL Team Logo for Seahawks Seattle Seahawks: Sedrick Van Pran, OG, Georgia Image for UGA

Seattle’s interior offensive line is a mess. Some stability is needed.

Sedrick Van Pran is solid in both run blocking and pass protection.

Pick change; previously Jackson Powers-Johnson, C

NFL Team Logo for Colts Indianapolis Colts: Jaheim Bell, TE, Florida State Image for FSU

The Colts have a million mediocre tight ends so they might as well add another.

Jaheim Bell is a physical player who runs well after the catch.

NFL Team Logo for Rams Los Angeles Rams: Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina Image for

The Rams may want to find a quarterback to develop with Matthew Stafford nearing the end of his career.

Spencer Rattler has big-time upside with plus arm strength and athleticism, but has erratic decision-making.

NFL Team Logo for Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers: Anthony Belton, OT, N.C. State Image for NC State

The Steelers need to bolster their offensive line to give Kenny Pickett a chance.

Anthony Belton is a massive tackle, but has enough quickness and athleticism to remain on the edge.

Pick change; previously Matt Goncalves, OT

NFL Team Logo for Browns Cleveland Browns: Jordan Jefferson, DT, LSU Image for LSU

Here’s another young defensive lineman for the Browns to eventually replace a talented veteran.

Jordan Jefferson is a tough run defender.

NFL Team Logo for Texans Houston Texans: Bud Clark, DB, TCU Image for TCU

The Texans need to continue to bolster their weak secondary.

Bud Clark has a nice frame, but needs to bulk up a bit.

NFL Team Logo for Cowboys Dallas Cowboys: Cedric Gray, LB, North Carolina Image for NCar

Leighton Vander Esch can’t stay healthy, which is why one team removed him from their draft board several years ago.

Cedric Gray was one of the top linebackers in college football last year.

NFL Team Logo for Packers Green Bay Packers: Blake Corum, RB, Michigan Image for MICH

A.J. Dillon was horrible as a replacement for Aaron Jones this past season.

Blake Corum runs with great strength and balance.

NFL Team Logo for Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas Image for Tex

Rachaad White is a great receiver out of the backfield, but he’s a lackluster runner.

Jonathon Brooks is a tough runner with plus receiving ability.

NFL Team Logo for Cardinals Arizona Cardinals: Bralen Trice, DE, Washington Image for Wash

The Cardinals could use another pass rusher to beat the 49ers.

Bralen Trice has been a great pass rusher for Washington. He has big upside.

NFL Team Logo for Packers Green Bay Packers: Justin Eboigbe, DT, Alabama Image for ALA

The Packers have been weak against the run for quite some time.

Justin Eboigbe is limited athletically, but was very productive at Alabama.

NFL Team Logo for Lions Detroit Lions: Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State Image for FSU

The Lions may bring in someone to challenge Jameson Williams, who has been a disappointment thus far.

Johnny Wilson is a massive receiver who might have to become a tight end in the NFL.

NFL Team Logo for Ravens Baltimore Ravens: Ro Torrence, CB, Arizona State Image for ArizS

The Ravens have some weaknesses in the secondary that must be addressed.

Ensign Ro Torrence is a big cornerback, but comes with some speed question marks.

NFL Team Logo for 49ers San Francisco 49ers: Dominick Puni, OT, Kansas Image for KU

The 49ers need to improve their offensive line outside of Trent Williams.

Dominick Puni played both left and right tackle and was dependable at Kansas.

Pick change; previously Chop Robinson, DE/OLB

NFL Team Logo for Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs: Tez Walker, WR, North Carolina Image for NCar

It goes without saying that the Chiefs need a lot of help at receiver.

Some members of the media have Tez Walker projected in the first round, but some teams have him in the middle rounds because of separation question marks.
