  1. Cleveland Browns: Max Tuerk, C, USC
    The Browns acquired Jack Conklin in an earlier mock draft. An upgrade is needed on the offensive line, which is a train wreck. Max Tuerk can play both guard and center, so I'm sure he'll find some way to sneak into the starting lineup.

    Pick change; previously Tyler Matakevich, ILB

  2. Cleveland Browns: Keyarris Garrett, WR, Tulsa
    The Browns lost Travis Benjamin to free agency. That left just Josh Gordon as a viable receiving option, and now it's sounding like Gordon won't be playing for a while in the wake of his recent failed drug test. Check out the Disaster Grades for more on Gordon.

  3. Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Ervin, RB, San Jose State
    Darren McFadden looked good this past season, but the Cowboys can't really count on him for the long term. The same goes for Alfred Morris. Here's their running back of the future.

  4. San Diego Chargers: Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina
    The Chargers re-signed Antonio Gates this offseason, but managed to lose Ladarius Green in the process. As a result, they'll have to find a new, young tight end to take over for Gates once he retires.

  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jalen Mills, S, LSU
    The Jaguars signed Tashaun Gipson this offseason, but they may not be done at safety. John Cyprien has struggled at the other spot, so here's some needed competition.

  6. Baltimore Ravens: Charles Tapper, DE, Oklahoma
    The Ravens are also in need of another edge rusher, as Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil aren't going to be around much longer.

  7. San Francisco 49ers: Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
    The 49ers are so desperate at receiver that they could select multiple players at the position in the first few rounds.

  8. Chicago Bears: Shon Coleman, OT, Auburn
    Ronnie Stanley and Jack Conklin are both options at No. 11 overall for a reason. The Bears' tackle situation is a complete mess, and it needs to be addressed at some point.

  9. Miami Dolphins: Eric Murray, CB, Minnesota
    The Dolphins are linked to Eli Apple in the opening round. If they don't take him there, they'll have to settle for someone like Eric Murray.

    Pick change; previously B.J. Goodson, LB

  10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Connor Wujciak, DT, Boston College
    The Buccaneers had numerous defensive tackles hitting free agency, so they could be looking for depth at the position in the middle rounds.

  11. New York Giants: Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
    Tom Coughlin figured out that going with a rotation of Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen worked best, but it was already too late. It's hard to count on Jennings for the long term, however, so here's a potential running back of the future.

  12. Los Angeles Rams: Jack Allen, C, Michigan State
    It's no secret that the Rams have to upgrade the center position. Fortunately for them, they're getting a steal at this juncture.

  13. Detroit Lions: Alex Lewis, OT, Nebraska
    The Lions have to spend an early- or mid-round selection on an offensive tackle, given their issues with pass protection.

    Pick change; previously Eric Murray, CB

  14. New Orleans Saints: Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina
    Marques Colston is done, and the Saints need someone to draw attention away from Brandin Cooks.

  15. Los Angeles Rams: Kenny Lawler, WR, California
    The Rams obviously need to add some talent around their new quarterback, though that'll be difficult to do, given the lack of draft choices.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Willie Henry, DT, Michigan
    The Raiders took care of a bunch of their needs this offseason. One thing they still have to acquire is some help on the defensive line, especially in the wake of Mario Edwards' potential career-threatening neck injury.

  17. Atlanta Falcons: Joe Thuney, G, N.C. State
    The Falcons made an important signing this offseason when acquiring Alex Mack, but they still need one more improvement on the interior of the offensive line to help Matt Ryan.

  18. Indianapolis Colts: Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana
    Frank Gore doesn't have much left in the tank, so the Colts will need to find someone who can take over in the near future.

  19. Buffalo Bills: Deon Bush, S, Miami
    The Bills could use another safety, so don't be surprised if they take one in the middle rounds.

    Pick change; previously Adolphus Washington, DT

  20. New York Jets: Joe Schobert, DE/OLB, Wisconsin
    The Jets have needed help at outside linebacker for quite some time now. Finding a better pass rush would help take care of some of the issues in the secondary.

  21. Houston Texans: Adam Gotsis, DE/DT, Georgia Tech
    The Texans need to replace Jared Crick, so here's a viable candidate to start in his spot going forward.

  22. Washington Redskins: Jonathan Williams, RB, Arkansas
    With Alfred Morris gone, the Redskins may want to add another running back into the mix.

  23. Minnesota Vikings: Maurice Canady, CB, Virginia
    The Vikings could stand to benefit adding some depth to the interior of their defensive front.

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Briean Boddy-Calhoun, CB, Minnesota
    Pacman Jones was terrific this past season, but with he and Leon Hall both older than 30, the Bengals will have to find some young blood at cornerback.

  25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
    Some Steeler supporters back Alejandro Villanueva, but the fact remains that Pittsburgh tried to upgrade him via free agency. A mid-round choice could be used on competition.

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Ben Braunecker, TE, Harvard
    With Jimmy Graham's future in doubt, the Seahawks could look for a tight end in the middle rounds for insurance purposes.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Paul Perkins, RB, UCLA
    The Packers managed to re-sign James Starks, but running back remains a need because of Eddie Lacy's weight problems (though from pictures, he looks like he's shed an entire human being.)

  28. Kansas City Chiefs: Travis Feeney, LB, Washington
    Derrick Johnson's return to the lineup has been huge for Kansas City's defense, but the team has a weakness right next to Johnson. Also, it needs to be considered that Johnson just turned 33, so he doesn't have many dominant years left.

  29. Chicago Bears: Nick Vigil, LB, Utah State
    The Bears signed Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman this offseason, but they could still draft a linebacker in the middle rounds for depth purposes.

  30. Arizona Cardinals: Jonathan Jones, CB, Auburn
    The Cardinals tried to sign a cornerback in free agency, which makes sense because they never properly replaced Antonio Cromartie. They failed to do so, which means a pick like this one makes sense.

  31. Carolina Panthers: D.J. White, CB, Georgia Tech
    The Panthers were expected to draft a cornerback prior to Josh Norman's release. Thus, there's potential for them to select two corners in the first four or five rounds.

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Tavon Young, CB, Temple
    It's certainly possible that the Ravens will double up on cornerbacks, given how dire the need at the position happens to be.

  33. Green Bay Packers: Matt Ioannidis, DT, Temple
    Adding a second defensive end makes sense for the Packers, who need to improve the trenches on both sides of the ball.

  34. Baltimore Ravens: Adolphus Washington, DE/DT, Ohio State
    Chris Canty is gone, so the Ravens will need to find some help on the defensive front.

    Pick change; previously Scooby Wright, LB

  35. San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas
    Even if the 49ers plan on starting Blaine Gabbert next year, they still have to draft a quarterback at some point, right?

  36. Baltimore Ravens: Joe Dahl, G/OT, Washington State
    The Ravens were fortunate enough to land Laremy Tunsil in the first round, but they can't be done addressing their offensive line. A replacement for Kelechi Osemele must be acquired.

  37. Dallas Cowboys: Jason Fanaika, DE, Utah
    I mentioned earlier that the Cowboys have a lacking pass rush right now, especially in the first four games. Adding more edge players makes sense.

  38. Denver Broncos: Isaac Seumalo, C/G, Oregon State
    I had the Broncos addressing the guard spot earlier. Here's some help at center, where Matt Paradis can be upgraded.

  39. Green Bay Packers: Avery Young, OT, Auburn
    The Packers had issues pass protecting last year because of a severe lack of depth. This needs to be addressed.

  40. Cleveland Browns: K.J. Dillon, S, West Virginia
    Name a position, and the Browns could probably use two of them. Adding more secondary depth isn't a bad idea.

    Pick change; previously Daniel Lasco, RB

  41. Buffalo Bills: Roberto Aguayo, K, Florida State
    The Bills could use a kicker, and that position is now more important because of the new extra-point rule. The Bills could take Roberto Aguayo a round earlier than this.
