  1. Cleveland Browns: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
    The Browns could easily spend the first-overall pick on Saquon Barkley. If they don't, they'll need someone else to upgrade the disappointing Isaiah Crowell.

  2. New England Patriots: Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest
    The Patriots will be getting Derek Rivers back from injury next year, but they may decide that he's not enough to bolster their pass rush. Getting a third potent edge rusher to go along with Rivers and Trey Flowers would make sense.

  3. New York Giants: Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
    Shane Vereen is an impending free agent, so the Giants will need a new running back to perhaps complement Orleans Darkwa. It's unclear if Darkwa is even good enough to be the starter, but he's the best the Giants have. That would change with Bryce Love, who has shown some dynamic play-making ability as Christian McCaffrey's replacement.





  4. Indianapolis Colts: Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi State
    It's not exactly breaking news that the Colts need offensive line help. They'll have to spend an early pick on a blocker to help protect Andrew Luck.

    Pick change; previously Harold Landry, DE/OLB

  5. Chicago Bears: Iman Marshall, CB, USC
    The Bears have a pair of talented young safeties in Adrian Amos and Eddie Jackson. They could use some youth at cornerback, as Prince Amukamara doesn't seem like he's in the long-term plans. He's an impending free agent anyway.

    Pick change; previously Donte Jackson, CB

  6. Denver Broncos: Connor Williams, OT, Texas
    The Broncos have to find a new quarterback, but I imagine they'll go the veteran route, acquiring Kirk Cousins or Eli Manning. If so, they'll need a new tackle to protect them.

    Connor Williams has taken a dive in recent mock draft updates as a result of Charlie's report in the NFL Hot Press that teams have a mid-round grade on the Texas tackle.

    Pick change; previously Timon Parris, OT



  7. Cincinnati Bengals: Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State
    No one should be surprised if the Bengals double up on offensive linemen in the first couple of rounds in the 2018 NFL Draft, based on how the blocking unit has performed.

  8. Oakland Raiders: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
    The Marshawn Lynch signing has been a failure, so the Raiders need to move on from him and find a new starting running back.

    Pick change; previously DeShon Elliott, S

  9. Arizona Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
    Baker Mayfield has been discussed as a third- or fourth-round prospect among teams, so given that he's a quarterback, he could be pushed up to the second frame. Mayfield comes with some character concerns, but Arizona has taken chances on troubled players before.

    Pick change; previously Luke Falk, QB



  10. Cleveland Browns: DeShon Elliott, S, Texas
    The Browns have been extremely weak against the pass this season because of some horrible safety play. They're stuck with Jabrill Peppers for a couple more years, but they also need a new starter next to him.

    Pick change; previously Joshua Jackson, CB

  11. New York Jets: Ronald Jones, RB, USC
    Matt Forte won't be around much longer, and it's clear that the Jets don't trust Bilal Powell to handle the workload, so New York will need to find a new running back.

  12. Washington Redskins: Will Hernandez, G, UTEP
    The Redskins have endured lots of injuries on their offensive line this year, but one area that was a weakness from the start was left guard. Washington can do much better than Shawn Lauvao.

    Pick change; previously Derrius Guice, RB



  13. Miami Dolphins: Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina
    The Dolphins could add another offensive weapon. Addressing tight end makes sense, as I don't have much hope for Julius Thomas.

    Pick change; previously Mark Andrews, TE

  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
    The Buccaneers are taking a chance on Doug Martin reverting back to 2015 form. We'll see if that happens, but so far, it hasn't appeared as though that's been the case. If this continues, Tampa Bay will be looking for a running back early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson
    The Chargers desperately need offensive line help, and they have seen Joe Barksdale struggle for two years now. They could use a new right tackle.

    Pick change; previously Billy Price, C/G




  16. Buffalo Bills: Akrum Wadley, RB, Iowa
    It's unclear why the Bills got rid of Jonathan Williams in favor of Mike Tolbert, but they'll need to find another young running back behind LeSean McCoy.

  17. Green Bay Packers: J.C. Jackson, CB, Maryland
    The Packers almost have to keep picking cornerbacks until they get a talented one, right? It's amazing how bad their pass defense is.

  18. Dallas Cowboys: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
    The Cowboys could use another threat in the receiving corps, and they've shown that they're willing to take chances on troubled players. Antonio Callway has some major off-the-field issues, but some team could give him a shot in the second round.

  19. Detroit Lions: Maurice Hurst, DE/DT, Michigan
    There's some uncertainty with Ezekiel Ansah, as he's an impending free agent with a dubious injury history. I'm sure he'll be franchised, but how long will he last in Detroit beyond 2018? Meanwhile, Kerry Hyder is coming off a season-ending injury. The Lions could opt to select an edge rusher.

    Pick change; previously Iman Marshall, CB

  20. New York Jets: Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
    The Jets missed out on the top quarterbacks in this class, so they'll have to find a signal-caller in Round 2.

    Many may not know the name yet, but according to Charlie Campbell, Clayton Thorson been getting some first-round consideration. Read more in the NFL Hot Press.

  21. Baltimore Ravens: Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama
    Unless Brandon Carr takes a big pay cut, I can't see him being back next year. The Ravens could pursue another cornerback early in the draft if Carr leaves.



  22. Atlanta Falcons: Zach Allen, DE/DT, Boston College
    As mentioned in the opening round, the Falcons have three defensive linemen set to hit free agency next spring, so this is an area they could attack in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  23. Tennessee Titans: Harold Landry, DE/OLB, Boston College
    Brian Orakpo appears to be slowing down, while Kevin Dodd hasn't shown that he can be an NFL-caliber player yet. There's a good chance the Titans spend an early draft choice on an edge rusher to start across from Derrick Morgan.



  24. Buffalo Bills: Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia
    The Bills need to improve the right side of the offensive line. Perhaps Dion Dawkins will be able to properly replace Jordan Mills sometime soon. Right guard John Miller must also be upgraded.

  25. Kansas City Chiefs: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
    The Chiefs could use a second receiver to play across from Tyreek Hill.

  26. Carolina Panthers: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
    The Panthers will need another receiver to go along with Devin Funchess and Curtis Samuel in the wake of the Kelvin Benjamin trade.

  27. Jacksonville Jaguars: Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma
    The Jaguars could use a new tight end, as they don't have anything at the position in the wake of the Julius Thomas trade.

    Pick change; previously Troy Fumagalli, TE

  28. Minnesota Vikings: Trenton Thompson, DT, Georgia
    There have been reports indicating that Sharrif Floyd may never play again, which is a shame. The Vikings will need to find a new defensive tackle to play next to Linval Joseph.

    Pick change; previously Tyquan Lewis, DE

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
    The 49ers have just one viable receiver in Pierre Garcon. That definitely needs to change if Jimmy Garoppolo is to have success in San Francisco.

  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon
    The Steelers could stand to obtain a viable backup behind Le'Veon Bell.

  31. New England Patriots: Matthew Thomas, LB, Florida State
    The Patriots desperately need to address their linebacking corps, which has been an utter mess outside of Dont'a Hightower.

  32. Cleveland Browns: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State
    The Browns are getting Josh Gordon back from his long suspension, but can they really trust him? They'll likely have to use one of their many early picks on a receiver.
