  1. Cleveland Browns: Harvey Langi, ILB, BYU
    The Browns could go after inside linebacker depth late in the draft, especially with Christian Kirksey heading for free agency after this season.

  2. Baltimore Ravens: Deangelo Yancey, WR, Purdue
    Deangelo Yancey has drawn a ton of interest from teams during the pre-draft process. The Ravens have been one of the teams that have taken him in for a visit.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Mack Hollins, WR, North Carolina
    Allen Robinson struggled last year and is set to hit free agency after 2017. Here's an insurance policy if he continues to slack off.





  4. Cleveland Browns: Blake Jarwin, TE, Oklahoma State
    Gary Barnidge turns 32 soon, so the Browns may want to add a young tight end to perhaps start one day.

  5. Los Angeles Rams: Jayon Brown, ILB, UCLA
    The Rams are switching to a 3-4, so they'll need to find some more linebackers.

  6. Los Angeles Chargers: Kareem Are, G, Florida State
    The Chargers need to add at least two offensive linemen to improve Philip Rivers' protection.



  7. New York Jets: Eric Saubert, TE, Drake
    The Jets could pick a tight end much earlier than this - O.J. Howard is a possibility at No. 6 overall - as they haven't had a quality tight end in a long time.

  8. Carolina Panthers: Kyle Kalis, G, Michigan
    Trai Turner is an impending free agent, so the Panthers could add a guard in the third day of the draft.

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Lorenzo Jerome, S, Tulane
    The Bengals really missed Reggie Nelson last year, so they could take a safety earlier than this in the 2017 NFL Draft.



  10. Philadelphia Eagles: Marquel Lee, LB, Wake Forest
    The Eagles will be in the market for a linebacker, as Mychal Kendricks didn't take to the new defense last year, and could be shipped off as a result.

  11. Buffalo Bills: Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson
    It shouldn't surprise anyone if the Bills double up on receivers, given their glaring need at the position.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Sean Harlow, G, Oregon State
    The Saints signed Larry Warford, but they could still stand to add another guard to improve Drew Brees' blocking.



  13. Arizona Cardinals: Jeremy McNichols, RB, Boise State
    The Cardinals could stand to add some running back depth behind David Johnson.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Joe Mathis, DE, Washington
    Pick a position, any position. Save for left tackle, the 49ers need an upgrade. In this case, the 49ers need two defensive ends.

    Pick change; previously Leon McQuay, S




  15. Minnesota Vikings: Kenny Golladay, WR, Northern Illinois
    The Vikings could use another receiver just in case Laquon Treadwell continues to struggle.

  16. New England Patriots: Darrell Daniels, TE, Washington
    The Patriots acquired Dwayne Allen to replace Martellus Bennett, but Allen is very injury-prone, so New England could add another tight end.

  17. Washington Redskins: D.J. Jones, NT, Ole Miss
    The Redskins signed a couple of defensive linemen this offseason, but haven't done enough to improve the situation.

  18. San Francisco 49ers: Jamaal Williams, RB, BYU
    The 49ers could add a running back here even if they select Leonard Fournette at No. 2 overall (or another back on Day 2). They'll need a quality backup for Fournette.

  19. Denver Broncos: Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma
    Here's another receiver for the Broncos, as they don't have much beyond Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.

  20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jerod Evans, QB, Virginia Tech
    Mike Glennon left for the Bears, so the Buccaneers will be looking for a new backup quarterback.



  21. Detroit Lions: Elijah Lee, LB, Kansas State
    The Lions are likely to double up on linebackers, as they had a need at the position even before they let go of DeAndre Levy.

  22. Los Angeles Rams: David Jones, S, Richmond
    The Rams have shown interest in David Jones, who can play special teams and provide depth at safety.

  23. New York Giants: Cole Hikutini, TE, Louisville
    The Giants could select a tight end much earlier than this, given their major need at the position. Better late than never, I guess.



  24. Oakland Raiders: Tanzel Smart, DT, Tulane
    I thought the Raiders should double up on defensive tackles even before the Dan Williams release.

  25. Washington Redskins: Devonte Fields, DE/OLB, Louisville
    Trent Murphy is set to hit free agency after this season, so the Redskins could add another edge rusher.

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Dylan Cole, LB, Missouri State
    This is the typical "swing for the fences" pick the Seahawks make late in the draft with a super-athletic player.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: K.D. Cannon, WR, Baylor
    I've mocked a receiver to the Cowboys much earlier than this, but Dallas will have to add a wideout at some point.

  28. Green Bay Packers: Ben Gedeon, LB, Michigan
    Ted Thompson doesn't like to spend early-round picks on inside linebackers, but he'll have to add to the position at some point.

  29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Samson Ebukam, DE/OLB, Eastern Washington
    The Steelers added an outside linebacker earlier in this mock draft. I think they could stand to pick up a second edge rusher at some point.

  30. Tennessee Titans: Jalen Robinette, WR, Air Force
    Despite getting Mike Williams at No. 5, the Titans could go after another receiver, given their need at the position.

  31. Detroit Lions: Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP
    Ameer Abdullah can't stay healthy, so the Lions are expected to take a running back at some point.

  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Chris Carson, RB, Oklahoma State
    The Chiefs could and probably should select a running back much earlier than this. That may change in the next update.



  33. Cincinnati Bengals: Chad Kelly, QB, Ole Miss
    The Bengals could be in the market for a backup quarterback if they trade A.J. McCarron. I don't think they'll mind Chad Kelly's character concerns.

  34. Kansas City Chiefs: Rayshawn Jenkins, S, Miami
    There's nothing wrong with adding some secondary depth late in the NFL Draft.
