  1. Cleveland Browns: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
    It's kind of crazy that the Browns are able to obtain Calvin Ridley at this spot. They need one more receiver, as evidenced by their interest in Odell Beckham Jr. Ridley would fill that need.

    Pick change; previously Jaire Alexander, CB

  2. New York Giants: Will Hernandez, G, UTEP
    The Giants have used lots of top-30 visits on offensive linemen, and all of them make sense for No. 34 overall. Will Hernandez is the best of the bunch who happens to be available.

  3. Cleveland Browns: Maurice Hurst, DE/DT, Michigan
    The Browns acquired several players recently, but they did manage to trade one away. That was Danny Shelton, a run-plugger. Larry Ogunjobi will take his place, but Cleveland needs an interior rusher to start next to Ogunjobi.





  4. Indianapolis Colts: Brian O'Neill, OT, Pittsburgh
    The Colts' offensive line was a mess last season. A nice addition was made to the interior this offseason, but a new right tackle is still needed.

  5. Indianapolis Colts: Donte Jackson, CB, LSU
    Vontae Davis is officially gone, as he signed with the Bills. The Colts had just one viable cornerback in Rashaan Melvin, but he signed elsewhere as well. Here's some needed help for the secondary.



  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
    As mentioned in the first round, the Buccaneers really need to make sure Jameis Winston plays better in 2018. Part of that will require finding a better running back to replace Doug Martin, who was recently cut. I could see Tampa trading up into the 27-32 range for Derrius Guice.

  7. Chicago Bears: Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
    A high-upside player from a small school... sound familiar? The Bears would have to consider Courtland Sutton a great value at No. 39. He'd be a nice replacement for Cameron Meredith.



  8. Denver Broncos: Joshua Jackson, CB, Iowa
    The Broncos are interested in Denzel Ward, but I have them passing on him because Bradley Chubb is available in this update. Here's another potential replacement for Aqib Talib.

    Pick change; previously Isaiah Wynn, G/C

  9. Oakland Raiders: Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis
    The Raiders signed Jordy Nelson, but he's obviously just a short-term answer across from Amari Cooper.

    Pick change; previously Terrell Edmunds, LB



  10. Miami Dolphins: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
    The Dolphins would love Dallas Goedert here, but he's not available. Instead, Miami could target the best player available. Jaire Alexander could slip because of some medical concerns.

    Pick change; previously Dallas Goedert, TE

  11. New England Patriots: Kerryon Johnson, RB, Auburn
    The Patriots lost Dion Lewis this offseason, so they'll need to find a new running back to add to their rotation.

  12. Washington Redskins: Ronald Jones, RB, USC
    The Redskins are looking for a new running back, as all the options they have at the position are pretty lackluster.

  13. Green Bay Packers: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State
    The Packers will have to find a new receiver to replace Aaron Rodgers' long-time weapon, Jordy Nelson, who signed with the Raiders this offseason. James Washington would be a logical option in Round 2.



  14. Cincinnati Bengals: Isaiah Wynn, G/C, Georgia
    Cincinnati needs multiple upgrades to the offensive line, and the team should be thrilled to obtain Isaiah Wynn this late.

    Pick change; previously Billy Price, C

  15. Arizona Cardinals: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
    As mentioned in the opening round, the Cardinals have a big need at receiver. They have to find a starter across from Larry Fitzgerald for the present and a new No. 1 for the near future.




  16. Los Angeles Chargers: Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State
    The Chargers will reportedly strongly consider a quarterback in the second round. Mason Rudolph would be a logical option for them at this juncture.

  17. Indianapolis Colts: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
    Frank Gore is gone, and Jim Irsay hinted that his team would use an early-round selection on a running back.

  18. Seattle Seahawks: Andrew Brown, DE/DT, Virginia
    Trade! The Seahawks acquire this pick for Earl Thomas, which is the rumor floating around right now. Seattle could use this selection to bolster the defensive interior in the wake of Sheldon Richardson's departure.

    Pick change; previously Anthony Miller, WR (DAL)

  19. Detroit Lions: Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State
    Detroit's linebacking corps is in terrible shape. The only viable player there is Jarrad Davis, and he's coming off an underwhelming rookie campaign.

  20. Baltimore Ravens: Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma
    The offensive line must be upgraded, and Orlando Brown would start immediately at right tackle, which was a big problem area for Baltimore. Brown, despite struggling at the combine, would continue the legacy of his late, great father, who was a dominant presence for Baltimore in the late 90s.

  21. Buffalo Bills: James Daniels, C, Iowa
    The Bills lost starting center Eric Wood to retirement, so they'll be looking to find his replacement.





  22. Kansas City Chiefs: Lorenzo Carter, DE/OLB, Georgia
    Tamba Hali is gone, and Dee Ford isn't too far behind, so the Chiefs need to find another potent edge rusher to start across from Justin Houston.

  23. Carolina Panthers: Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama
    The Panthers have major problems in their secondary, both at safety and cornerback. They need to spend lots of energy upgrading this area.



  24. Buffalo Bills: D.J. Chark, WR, LSU
    There was a disturbing video of Zay Jones released this offseason, so it's unclear if Buffalo can count on him going forward. If not, that just leaves Kelvin Benjamin, so a new No. 2 receiver will be needed.

  25. Tennessee Titans: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas
    The Titans are looking for linebackers of all sorts - edge rushers, interior guys - and this is them addressing the latter, which they need to do after losing Avery Williamson.

  26. Atlanta Falcons: B.J. Hill, NT, N.C. State
    Once again, the Falcons' defense was incredibly soft against the Eagles in the divisional round of the playoffs. They could use two of their initial three selections on the defensive line.

  27. San Francisco 49ers: Kemoko Turay, DE/OLB, Rutgers
    The 49ers need to find someone to play the Uncle LEO position in their defense, and Kemoko Turay seems like he'd be a perfect fit.

  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jessie Bates, S, Wake Forest
    Outside of linebacker, it could've been argued that safety was Pittsburgh's need heading into the offseason. Morgan Burnett was signed, but he's just a short-term fix.

  29. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon
    The Jaguars have shown interest in plenty of offensive linemen, so I expect them to grab a blocker in the first few rounds.

  30. Minnesota Vikings: Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays State
    There have been reports indicating that Sharrif Floyd may never play again, which is a shame. Sheldon Richardson was signed, but for just one year. Here's a long-term plan at the position.

  31. New England Patriots: Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond
    Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett are both gone, so the Patriots need a new young quarterback to eventually replace Tom Brady.

  32. Cleveland Browns: Will Richardson, OT, N.C. State
    The Browns should probably target a left tackle earlier than this to replace Joe Thomas, but better late than never.
