  1. Tennessee Titans: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford
    The Titans have shown interest in many receivers during the pre-draft process. Perhaps they'll take one in the middle rounds to challenge the disappointing Justin Hunter.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. New England Patriots: Doran Grant, CB, Ohio State
    The Patriots lost Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, so reinforcements are needed in the secondary.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Buck Allen, RB, USC
    I gave the Raiders a poor grade for signing Trent Richardson, but the move won't keep them from picking a running back in the middle rounds.

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dezmin Lewis, WR, Central Arkansas
    Contrary to previous reports, it appears as though the Jaguars are done with Justin Blackmon. They could add a receiver in the first half of the 2015 NFL Draft as a consequence.





  5. New York Jets: Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Auburn
    Chris Johnson hit free agency after the Jets declined his option. Not like he was going to play much anyway if he returned. The Jets may want to bring in another running back to go with Chris Ivory.

  6. Washington Redskins: Craig Mager, CB, Texas State
    The issues the Redskins have in their secondary are pretty well documented. They addressed the safety spot earlier, so they'll now have to look for a corner.

  7. Chicago Bears: Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado State
    I mentioned Chicago's horrific offensive line earlier. Upgrades are needed so that Jay Cutler will actually have time in the pocket next year. Not that he'll care one way or the other.

    Pick change; previously Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB

  8. Atlanta Falcons: Josh Shaw, S/CB, USC
    The Falcons have some issues at safety, so they could be looking at an early- or mid-round pick to get some help at the position.

  9. New York Giants: Durell Eskridge, S, Syracuse
    New York's top three safeties all had expiring contracts. Antrel Rolle signed with the Bears, so a replacement is needed for him.

  10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Anthony Chickillo, DE, Miami
    The Buccaneers paid big money to Michael Johnson last offseason, but he was so awful that he was released after one year. Here's a possible upgrade at defensive end.

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
    Adrian Peterson may not be back in Minnesota next year, so the Vikings may want to grab a second-day running back to pair with Jerick McKinnon just in case they find a trading partner.

  12. Cleveland Browns: Davis Tull, DE/OLB, UT-Chattanooga
    Barkevious Mingo does a lot of things well, but he's not great in terms of rushing the passer. The Browns need to think about getting another player who can get to the quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Cam Thomas, CB



  13. Seattle Seahawks: Mitch Morse, C/G, Missouri
    The Seahawks traded away their starting center to Seattle and managed to acquire this pick in the process. It makes sense that they'd find a replacement for Max Unger here. They could use Ali Marpet at center (selected in the second round of my mock), and if so, Mitch Morse can play guard.

  14. Philadelphia Eagles: Darren Waller, WR, Georgia Tech
    Jeremy Maclin surprised everyone by signing with the Chiefs (i.e. sabotaging his career). The Eagles will probably take a receiver in the first four rounds, and Chip Kelly has to love Darren Waller's athleticism.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland
    The Dolphins just signed Greg Jennings, but that won't preclude them from selecting a receiver during the first half of the 2015 NFL Draft. They could even take one at No. 14.

  16. Cleveland Browns: Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State
    The Browns signed Josh McCown to be their short-term solution at quarterback. They obviously need to draft someone for the long haul, as Johnny Manziel is unreliable.



  17. Houston Texans: Lynden Trail, DE/DT, Norfolk State
    The Texans never got around to replacing Antonio Smith, so here's a potential solution.

    Pick change; previously Nate Orchard, DE/OLB

  18. San Diego Chargers: Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State
    The Chargers could use some help at receiver, as Malcom Floyd will be 34 next season, while Eddie Royal signed elsewhere. Stevie Johnson was brought in, but some competition for him wouldn't hurt.

  19. Kansas City Chiefs: La'el Collins, G/OT, LSU
    The Chiefs were set to draft La'el Collins prior to this crazy murder investigation. Perhaps Andy Reid will still take a shot on him in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Ben Heeney, ILB

  20. St. Louis Rams: Ramik Wilson, ILB, Georgia
    The Rams could spend a mid-round pick on a linebacker to provide some depth and competition at linebacker, which isn't exactly a strength.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Coleman, CB, Tennessee
    The Bengals will be interested in some cornerback depth with Terence Newman no longer on the roster.

  22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State
    The Steelers have had success with a Michigan State running back, so why not draft another? Jeremy Langford is great in terms of pass protection, which is what Pittsburgh missed most when Le'Veon Bell went down.

  23. Baltimore Ravens: Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB, LSU
    The Ravens lost Pernell McPhee to free agency this offseason, so they'll need to find some pass-rushing depth in the middle rounds.

  24. Arizona Cardinals: Mike Hull, ILB, Penn State
    The Cardinals have had major issues covering tight ends the past two years. The main problem in this regard this past season was the inside linebacker position. Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington were both missed. Sean Weatherspoon signed with Arizona, but he can't be counted on to stay healthy.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi State
    Jonathan Stewart finished the year on a strong note, but the Panthers can't depend on him because he's so frequently banged up. With DeAngelo Williams officially gone, Carolina will have to add another running back.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: James Sample, S, Louisville
    The Ravens have to make a couple of additions to their secondary, which was torched quite often in 2014.

  27. San Francisco 49ers: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    The 49ers lost multiple cornerbacks this offseason, so they'll have to address the position in the first half of the 2015 NFL Draft.

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Christian Covington, DT, Rice
    Dallas' defense was much better than anyone anticipated, but it was exposed during a stretch during the latter part of the season. There are still some weaknesses that need to be addressed - particularly in the interior of the defensive line, where Nick Hayden needs to be upgraded.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB, Louisville
    The Colts signed Trent Cole this offseason, but they could stand to add some young talent at outside linebacker to challenge the disappointing Bjoern Werner.

    Pick change; previously Cam Thomas, CB

  30. Green Bay Packers: Leterrius Walton, DE/DT, Central Michigan
    The Packers managed to re-sign both B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion - check the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades here - but they still need to address the defensive line at the five-technique position.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas
    The Seahawks lost their former Super Bowl MVP in free agency to the Raiders. Depth will be needed at this position.

  32. New England Patriots: Tyler Kroft, TE, Rutgers
    The Patriots could use another tight end just in case Rob Gronkowski gets hurt again, and I'm sure Bill Belichick wouldn't mind drafting another Rutgers prospect.

  33. San Francisco 49ers: Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame
    Vernon Davis has just one year left on his contract, so he won't be around in San Francisco much longer. Vance McDonald, meanwhile, has been a disappointment. The 49ers may want to use a selection on a tight end.

  34. Denver Broncos: Nick O'Leary, TE, Florida State
    The Broncos lost Julius Thomas to the Jaguars, so here's a replacement at tight end. Denver could take Maxx Williams in Round 1, but something like this is more likely.

  35. Seattle Seahawks: Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
    The Seahawks lost a couple members of their secondary this offseason, so they could look to replenish depth in the middle rounds.

  36. Cincinnati Bengals: Chaz Green, OT, Florida
    The Bengals managed to re-sign Clint Boling, so the offensive line isn't a pressing issue anymore. However, they need to look into a long-term solution at left tackle.

  37. Baltimore Ravens: Robert Myers, G/OT, Tennessee State
    The Ravens don't have much depth on the interior of their offensive line, so they may use a mid-round selection on some help in that area. I already mocked La'el Collins to them, but I'm more confident in this selection happening - Baltimore has shown interest in Robert Myers - so I'm going to keep it.
