  1. New York Jets: Jevon Holland, S, Oregon
    The Jets dealt one of the top safeties in the NFL to the Seahawks. Here's a potential replacement for Jamal Adams.

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri
    Myles Jack is having a great rebound year, but the Jaguars could use help at the position.

    Nick Bolton is not a great athlete, but he's made many nice plays for Missouri, particularly in coverage.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
    The Falcons have one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Their cornerback situation is abysmal.

    Tyson Campbell is a very strong, physical cornerback with great size (6-2, 180).

  4. Miami Dolphins: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
    The Dolphins will need to upgrade Myles Gaskin, so here's some running back help.

    Najee Harris was one of the top recruits in the country in 2017, and he showed off his talents as a freshman. He's been tremendous again this past season.



  5. New York Giants: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
    The Giants improved their secondary with James Bradberry, but they could still use some help at cornerback.

    Josh Jobe is a big, athletic cornerback with tremendous upside.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kary Vincent Jr., CB, LSU
    The Jaguars need to continue fixing their defense, which lost a ton of talented personnel recently.

    Kary Vincent Jr. is small (5-10), but he can be a solid slot corner at the next level.

  7. Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Tryon, DE, Washington
    The Bengals need to continue to assemble defensive talent to help them contain Lamar Jackson, which includes another pass rusher.

    Joe Tryon came out of nowhere to have a breakout 2019 campaign. He has a nice frame (6-5, 262) and tons of upside to be an impactful edge rusher in the NFL.

    Pick change; previously Patrick Jones, DE



  8. Washington Redskins: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
    The Redskins failed to find a replacement for Jordan Reed during the 2020 NFL Draft, so they'll have to address that need next April. Perhaps they'll trade for Albert Okwuegbunam.

    Brevin Jordan looks to be the next great Miami tight end. He's drawn comparisons to Evan Engram. He's extremely fast.

  9. Dallas Cowboys: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    Tyron Smith can't seem to stay healthy anymore. It might be time to spend a high draft choice on an eventual replacement.

    Walker Little was projected as a top-10 prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft before he suffered an injury. He'll be back to that designation in 20201 if he can show that he's healthy.

    Pick change; previously Dimitri Moore, LB

  10. New England Patriots: Marques Stevenson, WR, Houston
    It shouldn't surprise anyone if the Patriots double up on receivers, given the glaring need at the position.

    Marques Stevenson has incredible speed.



  11. Denver Broncos: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame
    The Broncos showed interest in an early linebacker in the 2020 NFL Draft, so that's a position that could be addressed in 2021.

    Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is a fast linebacker who has drawn comparisons to Telvin Smith, per Charlie Campbell's sources.

    Pick change; previously Merlin Robertson, LB

  12. Los Angeles Chargers: Trey Hill, C, Georgia
    Here's more offensive line help for the Chargers. It's difficult to trust Mike Pouncey.

    Trey Hill put himself on the first-round map when he handled Derrick Brown impressively in 2019.

  13. Carolina Panthers: Ar'Daius Washington, S, TCU
    The Panthers need to continue to upgrade their woeful secondary.

    Ar'Darius Washington is undersized, but has terrific instincts.

  14. Las Vegas Raiders: Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina
    Here's another cornerback for the Raiders, who need as much help as possible to defend Patrick Mahomes over the next 10 years.

    Israel Mukuamu is a big cornerback (6-4, 205) who enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign.



  15. Detroit Lions: Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State
    The Lions have struggled against the run this year because they lost some defensive linemen to free agency. Here's a replacement.

    Marvin Wilson has outstanding size (6-5, 311) and athleticism, and he is capable of putting consistent pressure on the quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Kwity Paye, DE/DT

  16. Miami Dolphins: Patrick Jones, DE, Pittsburgh
    The Dolphins need to upgrade their pass rush to give them a chance against Cam Newton and Josh Allen. This is such a big need for them that they could double up on defensive ends.

    Pick change; previously Quincy Roche, DE/OLB




  17. San Francisco 49ers: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College
    The 49ers were expected to target a center early in the 2020 NFL Draft, so they may pursue the position at this juncture.

    The brother of Falcons guard Chris Lindstrom, Alec had an injury history early in his collegiate career but has seemingly overcome those.

  18. New Orleans Saints: Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    The Saints signed Emmanuel Sanders, but they need a second receiver for the long term.

    Tamorrion Terry is a big, athletic receiver who could sneak into the first round.

    Pick change; previously Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR

  19. Philadelphia Eagles: Deonte Brown, G, Alabama
    The Eagles seem to have forgotten what made them a Super Bowl champion in 2017. They had an elite offensive line back then, but now they can't block at all for Carson Wentz.

    Deonte Brown's strength is blasting open huge holes for his running backs, but he's also a solid pass protector.



  20. Indianapolis Colts: Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State
    Malik Hooker can't seem to stay healthy, so the Colts may want to find an insurance policy.

    Hamsah Nasirildeen has nice upside and athleticism, but he needs to fill out.

  21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jackson Carman, G, Clemson
    The Buccaneers could stand to add another lineman to protect Tom Brady.

    Jackson Carman is a massive, 345-pound guard who played some tackle for Clemson before moving inside.






  22. Los Angeles Rams: Cade Mays, OT, Tennessee
    There's a chance Andrew Whitworth will retire after the 2020 season. That would make the Rams' already-putrid offensive line even worse.

    Cade Mays was a five-star recruit, and he has the potential to be an elite left tackle.

    Pick change; previously Walker Little, OT

  23. Buffalo Bills: Rondale Moore, RB/WR, Purdue
    The Bills don't really have any needs, so they can afford to use a second-round pick on a versatile weapon.

    Rondale Moore is a very intriguing weapon. He accumulated 1,367 yards as a freshman by both running and receiving. Some NFL team is going to figure out a great way to use the extremely talented 175-pounder.

  24. Cleveland Browns: Rashad Weaver, DE, Pittsburgh
    Olivier Vernon may not be on the roster much longer, so here's a potential replacement.

    Rashad Evans has good size (6-5, 270) and athleticism. He's rebounded well after missing all of 2019 with an injury.

    Pick change; previously Aidan Hutchinson, DE

  25. Arizona Cardinals: Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
    The Cardinals could use an early 2021 pick on a receiver if Larry Fitzgerald retires.

    Seth Williams (6-3, 224) has come out of nowhere to have a huge 2019 campaign.



  26. Chicago Bears: Kenny Gainwell, RB, Memphis
    David Montgomery has looked like a bust for the most part, so perhaps the Bears will be looking for a new running back.

    Kenny Gainwell is explosive and fast, and he can go the distance on any play. He needs to bulk up a bit, but his upside is through the roof.

  27. Tennessee Titans: Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
    Corey Davis has been a disappointment for the most part thus far (though he was great in the 2020 opener.) If he doesn't improve, the Titans could be hunting for a new receiver in a couple of years.

    Rashod Bateman runs routes well, but there's question about his ability to separate.



  28. Baltimore Ravens: Zaven Collins, DE/OLB, Tulsa
    The Ravens made a great trade for Yannick Ngakoue. They could still add another edge rusher.

    Zaven Collins has improved tremendously as a junior. It's a good thing his conference didn't screw him out of a chance to bolster his draft stock.

    Pick change; previously Thomas Booker, DE/DT

  29. Seattle Seahawks: Mustafa Johnson, DT, Colorado
    The Seahawks miss Quinton Jefferson, so they may use an early pick on a defensive tackle.

    Mustafa Johnson broke out in 2018 after being a Juco transfer.

  30. Kansas City Chiefs: Trey Smith, OT, Tennessee
    Andy Reid loves bolstering the trenches, so he could add to Patrick Mahomes' pass protection.

    Despite being a freshman, Trey Smith was arguably Tennessee's best player in 2017. Unfortunately, injures have derailed his draft stock.

    Pick change; previously Cade Mays, OT

  31. Green Bay Packers: Tedarrell Slaton, NT, Florida
    Raheem Mostert trampled the Packers in the NFC Championship, yet the front office did nothing about it.

    Tedarrell Slaton is a massive nose tackle who causes lots of disruption.

  32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
    Here's a potential starter at right tackle if Zach Banner's injury is very serious.

    Liam Eichenberg took over at left tackle in the wake of Mike McGlinchey's departure to the NFL.
