Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
The Colts were able to trade back in the draft and worked on building up their offensive line to protect Luck and to help the run game to make the offense more balanced. They have a major need with finding guys to rush the passer.
Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
The Browns had a 2018 NFL Draft where they had a lot of picks that seem questionable. They play an aggressive 4-3 defense, and can always need an other edge rusher.
Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
The Dolphins need to keep their QB healthy, and are trying to rebuild their roster with more tried and true personnel philosophies. They brought in many players, but still need to work on their offensive line.
Rashan Gary, DE/DT, Michigan
The Jets got a steal with Sam Darnold, and can start building all over their team without having to worry about the QB of the future anymore. They have needs on the defense, particular on the defensive line.
Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
The Bengals, at some point, have to address their core flaw in how they draft players, develop players, and how they approach free agency. They have added a lot of talent, but let a lot of players walk. They traded for a left tackle, but need more work on the offensive line.
Trey Adams, OT, Washington
The Cardinals think they have the QB of the future, and added some offensive weapons. They made some moves on the offensive line, but are they really long term solutions?
Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
Denver has their QB and stole Bradley Chubb due to the Brown’s front office draft gaffes. They still need interior help on the defensive line.
Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
2019 could be the year to grab a QB early in the draft to groom as Eli’s replacement.
Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
The upcoming season will show where the Bears will need to add to the continued development of Trubisky. They resigned two of their CB’s, but at a hefty cost. They need young, cheap talent in the secondary.
Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
The Redskins have their sort of long-term QB in place, so that drama can be put to bed. They have a lot of work to make strides in a division that could be stacked next year. They need help in the secondary.
11. Dallas Cowboys
Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
The Cowboys have got to get some young talent at WR and TE, and need to find true balance with their offense instead of leaning heavily one way or another game to game. Their HOF TE retired, so that will be the top need going into the draft.
Cameron Smith, LB, USC
Last season was just a disaster for the Bucs, but are they just a very young team with new pieces everywhere that just needs time to find cohesiveness? They added a ton of toughness on both lines, but still need work on linebacker.
13. Buffalo Bills
Raekwon Davis, DE, Alabama
The Bills got their QB with Josh Allen and want to be able to stop the run and control the clock. They need to add more talent to their front seven.
14. Oakland Raiders
Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida
The Raiders have a shiny new HC and will be a fun team to watch, considering their coaching problems the last few years. Were those issues all coaches? They have added a lot of older vets, now need some young talent, especially in the secondary.
15. Seattle Seahawks
Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
Seattle is at a crossroads with their roster. Their once dominant defense and run game are showing a lot of cracks. They are revamping one of the key pieces to their team, their defensive line.
Christian Wilkins, DE/DT, Clemson
The Chiefs lost their OC that saved their season last year. They have a new QB that has a lot to learn in terms of fundamentals and a HC that displays very questionable play calling. They should flash next year, but still go through lulls as smart DC’s will out coach their offensive game plans. They were soft on defense last year, particularly up the middle.
17. Detroit Lions
Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan
The Lions concentrated heavily on fixing their run game, but with a defensive scheme change, will always be drafting linebackers.
Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
The 49ers are turned their franchise around quickly. With their QB in place for the long haul, now they can start drafting for the best talent left on the board.
19. Baltimore Ravens
Josh Allen, LB, Kentucky
The Ravens will be under a new GM for the first time in a long time, and will have one year as well to see what Lamar Jackson can do. They always want to revolve around their defense, and will grab a talented linebacker when they can.
20. Tennessee Titans
David Sills V, WR, West Virginia
Tennessee should shift more to becoming a dominant defensive team next year, but they have to find an offense that works best for their young QB.
21. Houston Texans
Hjalte Froholdt, OG, Arkansas
The Texans haven’t seemed to have harmony between their GM and HC, and that has been fixed. Will they be able to finally put in the full Bill O’Brien offense that he has been wanting to for years? They would love to be able to run the ball more effectively and to control the clock.
Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
The Chargers’s should have a few good years left in them with Rivers under center. They really improved throughout the season last year and could be a surprise in the AFC next year. This could be the draft to get their QB of the future.
Devin White, LB, LSU
The Panthers’ have decided that Cam Newton’s consistency issues are the fault of the OC, so it will be interesting to see how that works in the upcoming season. They have a lot of offensive weapons, and have some holes on their defense.
A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
Green Bay made some surprising moves in their front office, and might have corrected some personnel moves that have cost this team a chance to get over the hump in recent years. They worked on fixing their secondary, and have some contracts coming up on defense.
T.J. Edwards, LB, Wisconsin
If Big Ben can make the front office confident that he will be around for a bit, they can be a team that goes all in for the short-term. They really need some help at linebacker, which is the centerpiece of the defense.
26. Atlanta Falcons
Anfernee Jennings, LB, Alabama
The Falcons added a WR in round 1 of the 2018 draft, we will see how the season goes for team needs. They have had trouble keeping leads, and will look to add talent to their defense.
27. Green Bay Packers (from New Orleans)
Montez Sweat, LB, Mississippi State
The Packers have this pick from the Saints, and can use the extra pick to add to their rebuilding defense.
Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State
The Vikings QB is set, and they are in a hard core press for a SB in the next few years. They have talent across the board, and will be able to approach the draft for truly the best player available.
Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
Jacksonville has one of the most talented rosters in the league, but still have to feel uncomfortable at the QB position.
30. Los Angeles Rams
Kendall Joseph, LB, Clemson
The Rams were the turnaround story of last year, but a few positions that they addressed in free agency will need replenishing soon via the draft with young talent.
Ryan Finley, QB, NC State
The Patriots are in a bit of transition, if that can be said about them. They had glaring deficiencies with their pass rush last year, and need to find ways to get pressure on opposing QB’s. They need a QB as well to get in place for the eventual retirement of Brady.
Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
Philadelphia will be an interesting team to watch over the next year. Will they stay ahead of potential contract issues that will be coming up soon which are all a part of drafting and trading well.
