      1. Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia Georgia
        The Colts could stand to give Anthony Richardson a dynamic intermediate weapon.

        Brock Bowers is an elite athlete and a mismatch weapon.

      2. Houston Texans Houston Texans: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas Texas
        The Texans have a dreadful receiving corps, where the No. 1 receiver is either Robert Woods, Nico Collins, or Tank Dell.

        Xavier Worthy is a shifty receiver with good length.

        Pick change; previously Keon Coleman, WR

      3. Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington Washington
        The Falcons may realize that Desmond Ridder can only take them so far. They could be interested in a quarterback with this pick.

        Michael Penix Jr. has a huge arm. He must improve his pocket presence.

        Pick change; previously Quinn Ewers, QB

      4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma Oklahoma
        The Buccaneers have a weak offensive line that wasn’t tested until the blowout loss to the Eagles. They’ll have to address it early in the 2024 NFL Draft.

        Tyler Guyton is a massive tackle with great athelticism for someone his size.

        Pick change; previously Drake Maye, QB

      5. Washington Redskins Washington Redskins: Jeremiah Trotter, LB, Clemson Clemson
        Washington’s linebacking corps has been a problem for a very long time, and that continues to be the case with Jamin Davis looking like a bust.

        Jeremiah Trotter has been able to flash all over the field.

      6. Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars: Ruke Orhorhoro, DE/DT, Clemson Clemson
        The Jaguars have needed defensive tackle help ever since Calais Campbell left the team.

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

      7. Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson Clemson
        The Ravens’ secondary isn’t as potent as it once was, so replacements are needed.

        Nate Wiggins is a tall cornerback with plus athleticism and quickness.

      8. Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers: Dallas Turner, DE, Alabama Alabama
        The Steelers were 8-2 with T.J. Watt on the field last year, but 1-6 without him. They need another pass rusher to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

        Dallas Turner is a dynamic pass-rushing threat with immense upside.

      9. Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys: Calean Carson, CB, Wake Forest Wake Forest
        The Cowboys lost Trevon Diggs to a torn ACL, while Stephon Gilmore is not the same player he once was.

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

        Pick change; previously Javion Cohen, G

      10. San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers: Marcellas Dial, CB, South Carolina South Carolina
        The 49ers’ great pass rush has masked the poor cornerback situation for quite some time. Perhaps the front office will finally address that issue.

        Marcellas Dial has a good blend of size, athleticism, and speed.

        Pick change; previously Kamari Lassiter, CB

      11. Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals: Cooper DeJean, S/CB, Iowa Iowa
        Cincinnati’s secondary isn’t what it used to be. The front office has drafted some players to help, but more talent is needed.

        Cooper DeJean is an instinctive and versatile player.

      12. Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins: Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State Ohio State
        The Dolphins looked weak to the run to start the season, so they may want to address this area.

        Michael Hall Jr. is a bit light, but he is incredibly fast off the ball and has great playmaking ability.

      13. Detroit Lions Detroit Lions: Max Melton, CB, Rutgers Rutgers
        The Lions wanted Devon Witherspoon at No. 6, so perhaps they’ll obtain a cornerback with this pick.

        Max Melton is a terrific athlete who is incredibly fast that receivers can’t outrun him.

      14. Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills: Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State Florida State
        The Bills drafted a second tight end, but they still need a better second wide receiver.

        Keon Coleman is a massive receiver with quickness and good ball skills.

        Pick change; previously Emeka Egbuka, WR

      15. Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles: Javon Bullard, CB/S, Georgia Georgia
        The Eagles could use some young defensive backs who can eventually replace the two aging cornerbacks or one of the safeties.

        Javon Bullard is a safety or a nickel cornerback who projects similarly to Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.

      16. Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs: Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina South Carolina
        I don’t need to tell you that the Chiefs need receiving help at that embarrassing performance versus the Lions.

        Xavier Legette has been a rising prospect. He is a massive receiver and has good speed for his size.

        Pick change; previously Malik Nabers, WR
