  1. Tennessee Titans: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    Most teams that pick a franchise quarterback usually go after an offensive weapon or a blocker in the following round. The Titans are so desperate at corner, however, that they could potentially break that rule in Round 2.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M
    The Buccaneers need help at left tackle, as Anthony Collins is gone after just one awful season. Teams usually grab an offensive weapon or a blocker after choosing a franchise quarterback, so that's what Tampa is doing here.

    Pick change; previously Jake Fisher, OT

  3. Oakland Raiders: Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    I had Kevin White going to the Raiders at No. 4 overall in a previous 2015 NFL Mock Draft. The Raiders could still take him, but if they don't, they'll have to look for a receiver with their next pick, as Derek Carr needs a primary target.

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    Charlie Campbell reported today in the NFL Draft Rumor Mill that the Jaguars really like T.J. Yeldon. That makes sense, as he would be a big upgrade over predicted bust signing Toby Gerhart.

  5. New York Jets: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    This pick may surprise some, as the Jets brought in Brandon Marshall this offseason to go along with Eric Decker in the receiving corps. However, Brandon Marshall will be owed more than $16 million over the final two years of his contract after the 2015 campaign. He'll be 32 next offseason, and he showed signs of slowing down this past year. Meanwhile, Decker is not a No. 1 target. Amari Cooper certainly projects to be one.

    Pick change; previously Eli Harold, DE/OLB

  6. Washington Redskins: Damarious Randall, S, Arizona State
    The Redskins obviously need to make multiple upgrades to their woeful secondary. Help is needed at both corner and safety, so Washington can take the best player available at either position.

    Pick change; previously Jaelen Strong, WR

  7. Chicago Bears: Jordan Phillips, NT, Oklahoma
    The Bears could spend the No. 7 pick on Danny Shelton, but I think it's more likely that they'll find the nose tackle they need for their new 3-4 defense at some point on Day 2.

  8. New York Giants: Preston Smith, DE, Mississippi State
    General manager Jerry Reese is looking for pass-rushers. He tried to sign Brandon Graham a month ago, so he may take a defensive end in the first couple of rounds of the 2015 NFL Draft.

  9. St. Louis Rams: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State
    The Rams signed Nick Fairley, but that was just to a 1-year deal. Meanwhile, there's been talk that Michael Brockers could be traded.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Peters, CB

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
    The Falcons signed a couple of cheap tight ends this offseason, but that won't preclude them from spending their second-round pick on an upgrade at the position. Matt Ryan needs a reliable intermediate target, and Kyle Shanahan loves utilizing tight ends in his offense.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Breshad Perriman, WR, Central Florida
    The Browns need an offensive weapon, whether it's at wide receiver or tight end. They signed a couple of wideouts this offseason, but neither Dwayne Bowe nor Brian Hartline is anywhere close to being a No. 1 option.

    Pick change; previously Sammie Coates, WR

  12. New Orleans Saints: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE/OLB, UCLA
    More upgrades for the Saints' defense. The team needs a potent edge rusher, but couldn't land one at No. 13 because Alvin Dupree and Vic Beasley were off the board. Here's their solution.

    Pick change; previously Stephone Anthony, ILB

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Eric Rowe, CB/S, Utah
    The Vikings could use the 11th-overall pick on Trae Waynes. If they don't, perhaps they'll take a cornerback on Day 2. They need an upgrade across from Xavier Rhodes, and Eric Rowe has the size Mike Zimmer likes out of his corners.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    The 49ers are really hurting for receiving help. Michael Crabtree, a huge disappointment this past year, has officially moved on. Anquan Boldin played well, but he can't possibly perform at a high level much longer. Stevie Johnson proved to be a bust.

    Pick change; previously Owa Odighizuwa, DE/OLB

  15. Miami Dolphins: Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State
    The Dolphins have shown interest in several linebackers during the pre-draft process, and it's easy to understand why. They have just one viable three-down linebacker on the roster in Jelani Jenkins. Koa Misi is a solid, two-down defender, but Miami has to find a third linebacker.

  16. San Diego Chargers: Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
    Ryan Mathews has left for Philadelphia, while Branden Oliver cooled off toward the end of the season following a hot start. With Mathews gone, the Chargers will have to find a new primary running back.

  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson
    Here's more help for the interior of Kansas City's defense, which took a beating last year in the wake of all the injuries. The inside linebacker position must be addressed.

    Pick change; previously Quinten Rollins, CB

  18. Buffalo Bills: Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    The Bills signed Matt Cassel for the short term, but they obviously still need to find a quarterback of the future.

    Pick change; previously Brett Hundley, QB

  19. Houston Texans: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State
    The Texans lost Andre Johnson to the Colts, so they'll need a No. 2 wideout across from DeAndre Hopkins.

    Pick change; previously Denzel Perryman, LB

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Donovan Smith, OT, Penn State
    I have no idea why the Eagles want to trade Evan Mathis, but they do. If they move one of the top guards in the NFL, they'll need another offensive lineman. The athletic Donovan Smith can start at guard and move to tackle once Jason Peters retires.

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Carl Davis, DT, Iowa
    Domata Peko didn't play well this past year, so the Bengals may want to consider finding some help for the interior of their defensive line.

  22. Detroit Lions: Xavier Cooper, DE/DT, Washington State
    The Lions lost both Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley this offseason, so they're in desperate need for help on the defensive line. They'll have to address the position in the first two rounds this April.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana
    Andre Ellington can't carry the load by himself, and the Cardinals need a new No. 2 running back anyway.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    Cortez Allen was so bad against the Colts that he was actually trending on Twitter. Brice McCain is gone. Ike Taylor, meanwhile, was miserable in his return from injury. The Steelers are in desperate need of help at the cornerback position, and they're getting a prospect who fits their scheme well.

  25. Carolina Panthers: Shaq Thompson, LB/S, Washington
    Shaq Thompson told the media that he has received the most interest from the Panthers. That could mean nothing - or it could mean everything. Carolina's biggest needs are at receiver and tackle, but the team could select the top prospect available to fill a lesser hole. The Panthers definitely need to find a third linebacker (or a strong safety) and perhaps some insurance for Thomas Davis, a 32-year-old heading into his contract season.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Devin Funchess, TE, Michigan
    The Ravens already lost Owen Daniels this offseason, and no one is sure if Dennis Pitta will be able to play this year, so the front office could be targeting a tight end early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously P.J. Williams, CB

  27. Denver Broncos: Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
    Peyton Manning obviously won't be in the NFL much longer. The Broncos drafted Brock Osweiler a few years ago, but he hasn't shown that he has developed into a capable starter. It won't be surprising if John Elway gives up on Osweiler and spends a second-day selection on another quarterback.

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
    The Cowboys desperately need help at cornerback. Morris Claiborne has been a huge disappointment, while Brandon Carr is extremely overpaid.

    Pick change; previously Devin Smith, WR

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Quinten Rollins, CB, Miami of Ohio
    Greg Toler performed well in the playoffs, but the Colts could use a better No. 2 corner. I've had them picking one earlier than this in previous updates.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    It shouldn't be a surprise if the Packers target a running back at some point on Day 2. They want a strong No. 2 back to lighten Eddie Lacy's workload.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Ali Marpet, C/OT/G, Hobart
    The Seahawks could use some help on the offensive line to give Russell Wilson more time in the pocket. The rising Ali Marpet is a great fit for the blocking scheme, and he can pretty much play anywhere up front.

  32. New England Patriots: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    The Patriots have to improve their offensive line, especially the interior. Bill Belichick spent a selection last year on a Florida State blocker, so perhaps he'll add another one.

    Pick change; previously Josue Matias, G
