Something fun. I don't claim to know every team's needs inside and out (some of the owners don't even know these) so maybe I'll make a stupid pick or two (just as some of the owners will do). I'll just do what I would if it were up to me. I'm a Vikings fan, so I'll probably take this opportunity to belittle their rivals.

Best player in the draft at a position of need for the Titans. Perfect. They could get cute and trade down a few spots if they feel Ronnie Stanley would be acceptable and they can find a partner.
I can't imagine it really matters that much who the Browns pick, but this is as good a place to start as any.
Chargers need help on the defensive line. Wouldn't really surprise me if they went that way more than just here.
Whether he's a CB or safety, Ramsey will help a Dallas backfield that needs an infusion of playmakers. Jerry can wait a couple of rounds for Romo's replacement (or sign one in free agency--more likely).
Vernon Hergraves could be the pick here too, but I think Jack is going to wow a lot of people in the workout season.
Keeping Flacco upright and healthy all season should be priority number one. This is a pretty solid team and look where they're picking because their backup QBs played like they were backup QBs.
I guess Chip Kelly could take a stab at resurrecting Kaepernick's career, but is it really likely to go well? I don't think he wants to leave that bad taste in everyone's mouth in his first season in SF. Wentz is a pretty athletic guy and might be overwhelmed going from North Dakota State to starting NFL QB, but given time, he's smart enough to make it work.
They might be tempted to grab one of the talented offensive linemen still on the board, but Oline is deeper than CB in this draft. Hargreaves has played at a high level in the SEC and he'll make a difference in Miami.
Buckner is a giant athlete and perhaps better suited to a 3-4 defense, but I think he could be a freak as a 4-3 DE too. Seems like a Julius Peppers-type player.
The Giants could use an end to help out now that JPP is gone, but the linebackers aren't anything special either. Smith is a nice addition. Seems like the Giants are always looking for a LB, doesn't it?
Gotta keep that QB on his feet so he can throw those interceptions.
It will almost certainly be a defensive player, as the Saints are atrocious on D. Floyd can get after the QB, which should help immensely.
They almost have to take a QB, don't they? I'm assuming Bradford is all but gone and free agency likely won't have anything special.
The Raiders are on the rise. Ragland could be the man in the middle setting up the defense.
Could end up being a reach, but what else do the Rams have? Cook needs to do some damage control on his perceived attitude issues at the combine. you can't deny his results and success in college though.
He's not likely to fall this far, but it just turned out that way here. If Megatron retires there will certainly be a need. I think they need offensive linemen more.
