  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trey Sermon, RB, Ohio State
    The Jaguars will likely go after a mid-round running back so they can have a viable backup behind James Robinson.

    Trey Sermon is a physical back with nice speed.

  2. New York Jets: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College
    The Jets could add some competition at center, which wasn't a position of strength last year.

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

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Oklahoma
    The Falcons had no running game in 2020, which is why they blew so many leads. That must change.

    Rhamondre Stevenson is a power back who has a nice burst to get to the next level.

  4. Houston Texans: Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse
    The Texans have severe problems in their secondary that they must address.

    Pick change; previously Israel Mukuamu, CB



  5. Cleveland Browns: Zech McPhearson, CB, Texas Tech
    The Browns are thin at cornerback, so they're expected to address the position in the first half of the draft.

  6. Cincinnati Bengals: Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
    The Bengals cut Giovani Bernard, so they'll need another running back to go with Joe Mixon.

    Chuba Hubbard is projected as a second-round pick. He has great vision and instincts, and he can catch passes well out of the backfield.

  7. Detroit Lions: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
    The Lions must obtain multiple receivers, given their severe weakness at the position.

    Tylan Wallace doesn't have great size and speed, but he runs routes very well. He tore his ACL in October 2019.

    Pick change; previously Tommy Doyle, OT



  8. Carolina Panthers: Shawn Davis, S, Florida
    The Panthers need to continue to fix their ailing secondary.

    Pick change; previously Hamsah Nasirildeen, S

  9. Denver Broncos: Khalil Herbert, RB, Virginia Tech
    The Broncos lost Phillip Lindsay, and Melvin Gordon didn't have a great 2020 season. Another running back is needed.

  10. Dallas Cowboys: Austin Deculus, OT/G, LSU
    The Cowboys endured some major issues with their offensive line last year, so some help is needed in this area.



  11. New York Giants: Kendrick Green, G/C, Illinois
    I expect the Giants to add at least two offensive linemen in the 2021 NFL Draft in order to make sure Daniel Jones is protected as well as possible.

  12. San Francisco 49ers: Drew Dalman, C, Stanford
    Like Trent Williams, Alex Mack is just a temporary solution on the offensive line.

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina
    The Chargers lost Casey Hayward, so they'll need to address cornerback in the first half of the 2021 NFL Draft.

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

    Pick change; previously Sam Cosmi, OT

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Feleipe Franks, QB, Arkansas
    The Vikings should look into spending a Round 3-5 pick on a quarterback to challenge the overpaid Kirk Cousins in a year or two.



  15. New England Patriots: Patrick Jones, DE, Pittsburgh
    The Patriots are now chasing the Bills. To beat them, they'll need to pressure Josh Allen as much as possible.

  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Quinn Meinerz, G, Wisconsin-Whitewater
    The Raiders dumped three offensive linemen this offseason, so numerous picks will need to be used on their blocking.




  17. New England Patriots: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson
    The Patriots could draft as many as three receivers to fix their issues at the position.

  18. Philadelphia Eagles: Joshua Kaindoh, DE, Florida State
    The Eagles lost Vinny Curry this offseason, so they'll need to find another edge rusher for depth purposes.

  19. Washington Redskins: Tony Fields, LB, West Virginia
    Linebacker was such a position of weakness for the Redskins that they could double up on the position.

    Tony Fields is undersized, but was a very productive player for West Virgnia.



  20. Minnesota Vikings: Simi Fehoko, WR, Stanford
    The Vikings have two studs at receiver, but depth at the position is lacking.

  21. Tennessee Titans: Ronnie Perkins, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Titans signed Bud Dupree, but they still need help with their edge rush.

    Ronnie Perkins needs to bulk up a bit, but he has great potential as an edge rusher.

    Pick change; previously Quincy Roche, DE/OLB




  22. Indianapolis Colts: Jerome Johnson, DT, Indiana
    The Colts lost some defensive linemen in free agency this offseason, so they'll need to replenish depth in that area.

    Jerome Johnson has a good motor. He really stood out in the Ohio State game last year.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Tre Brown, CB, Oklahoma
    The Steelers lost several defensive backs in free agency, so they could double up on cornerbacks.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Alim McNeill, DT, N.C. State
    The Seahawks don't have many picks, but they need to spend those selections upgrading the offensive and defensive lines.

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Talanoa Hufanga, S, USC
    The Jaguars need to continue adding to their poor defense. Their secondary is a mess, especially at safety.



  26. Baltimore Ravens: Alaric Jackson, OT, Iowa
    The Ravens are expected to sign a veteran to replace Orlando Brown. That said, I'm sure they'll be looking for a long-term answer at the position.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Victor Dimukeje, DE, Duke
    The Browns must get by the Chiefs in order to reach the Super Bowl. This requires generating a relentless pass rush against Patrick Mahomes.

    Victor Dimukeje lacks length, but he was a productive edge rusher for the Blue Devils.



  28. New Orleans Saints: Grant Stuard, LB, Houston
    The Saints have some departed free agents at linebacker they'll need to replace.

  29. Minnesota Vikings: Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
    The Vikings could add a second safety in the 2021 NFL Draft, just to make sure they can stop Aaron Rodgers and overtake the Packers for the divisional crown.

    Richard LeCounte is a rangy tackling machine who has drawn comparisons to Eddie Jackson.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
    The Packers need to retool their receiving corps, so they could spend multiple picks on it this April.

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

  31. Baltimore Ravens: Jhamon Ausbon, WR, Texas A&M
    John Harbaugh stated that he wants to add multiple receivers in the 2021 NFL Draft.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Janarius Robinson, DE, Florida State
    The Buccaneers could add another pass rusher just so they have a very deep rotation.

  33. Dallas Cowboys: Chauncey Golston, DE/DT, Iowa
    Here's more help for Dallas' defensive line, which must see multiple upgrades.

  34. New England Patriots: Dorian Etheridge, LB, Louisville
    Bill Belichick usually boasts a great linebacking corps, but that was hardly the case last year because of numerous departures.

  35. Pittsburgh Steelers: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College
    The Steelers shouldn't rely on Eric Ebron and his terrible hands.

  36. Los Angeles Rams: Chris Rumph, CB, Duke
    The Rams lost multiple defensive backs this offseason, so they'll need to address the secondary.

  37. Green Bay Packers: Jimmy Morissey, C, Pittsburgh
    Corey Linsley would be a huge departure if he leaves in free agency. Here's a potential replacement.

  38. Minnesota Vikings: Evan McPherson, K, Florida
    The Vikings have numerous extra picks, so they can afford to spend a selection on their dubious kicking situation.

  39. Kansas City Chiefs: Garret Wallow, LB, TCU
    The Chiefs don't value linebackers very highly, but they still need to upgrade the position.
