Taylor Rapp, S, Washington
The Cardinals get their QB of the future with the first overall pick, and still have needs all over the place. They should have acquired another high pick for a trade for Rosen by this point, so can address a glaring need at safety.
Indianapolis Colts (from Jets)
Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State
After adding another exceptional piece to their offensive line, the Colts go back to the trenches, but this time on the other side of the ball.
Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware
The Raiders do need to get a WR, but the draft is loaded with them, and need to grab prospects that are scarce early.
Mack Wilson, ILB, Alabama
An out of the box linebacker, the 49ers can continue to bolster their defense with a linebacker that will shore up their defense. They could use some offensive weapons, but in this offense, you don’t need to over-reach for them.
TJ Collier, DE/OLB, TCU
The Giants could even go with another offensive lineman here, but pass rush is a big issue. They need guys on defense that can get after the QB and also cover. Collier is a fast riser.
Ryan Finley, QB, NC State
Yes, the Jaguars grabbed Foles in free agency, but Finley is just too good of a prospect to pass up here. He is smart, experienced, and a winner. If Foles works out, they can groom Finley for a trade later, and at very least don’t have to worry about QB depth for awhile.
Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
Dropping out of the first is very possible for Greedy Williams. This is in part due to some more complete CB’s that are rising, and because of a lack of tackling.
Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame
Tillery was an up and down prospect in college, but has a very high ceiling. The Bills need help in the trenches on both sides of the ball. They can wait on a WR and RB until later in the draft.
Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
The Broncos got Flacco to hold down the fort for now, but have to be considering a QB in this draft if one falls to them.
Charles Omenihu, DE, Texas
The Bengals defense last year just imploded. They need more young talent at all levels.
Dalton Risner, OG/OT, Kansas State
A road grader that probably best fits at guard in the NFL. The Lions need a right guard in this draft.
Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington
The Packers need to protect the franchise. They have done a nice job in adding to their defense, and got a nice offensive weapon in the first, but need some help in the trenches.
Jaylon Ferguson, DE, Louisiana Tech
More toughness on the D-line. The Falcons can turn a weakness into a strength with their first two picks.
Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State
The Redskins get a hard hitting safety that makes that unit a strength of the team.
Jachai Polite, DE/OLB, Florida
The Panthers do need a WR, but again, this draft has tons of them. They play it smart and continue to build their defense.
Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
Tight Ends might have a run in the 2nd, and the Dolphins need one. Tanking isn’t the right word, but they are taking a longer term approach to rebuilding, and can simply add the best player on the board throughout the draft.
A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
Brown could be one of the bigger steals in the draft. Metcalf outshined him in the draft process, but Brown outshined him on the field. The Browns have two excellent WR’s, but this is an opportunity to have a dominant core which could be the strength of the team moving forward.
Erik McCoy, C/OG, Texas A&M
The Vikings need to get their offensive line fixed immediately. They have balance and depth at every other position unit, but their guys up front have let them down.
Te’von Coney, ILB, Notre Dame
The new Titans defense needs linebackers. Look for them to keep adding one each year early in the draft until they get 4-5 that they love.
Gerald Willis, DT, Miami
So little talk about Willis, it would be shocking if he lasted this long. This is a proven player that has had some character concerns, but deserves a place in talk about elite DT’s in this draft.
Philadelphia Eagles (from Baltimore)
Germaine Pratt, OLB, NC State
Philly could use some youth at the linebacker position, and Pratt was a fast riser during the draft riser with exceptional tape.
Houston Texans (from Seattle)
Lonnie Johnson Jr., CB, Kentucky
The Texans added some offensive line help in the first, and now address another big need with a young, talented CB.
Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis
Arguably one of the most underrated players in this draft. Henderson was super productive and would create an exceptional running back core.
New England Patriots (from Chicago)
Joe Jackson, DE, Miami
The Pats always find defensive players in the draft that they groom and then end up letting go to get comp picks. They could use some pass rush help immediately.
Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
The Eagles rented Tate, but now need some more talent at the WR position. They don’t reach early, and are able to get an exceptional talent in the second.
Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama
The Cowboys have some big time contract issues coming up soon, and need to hit on their early draft picks. Thompson is a very safe pick that has been well coached.
Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Don’t be shocked to see the Colts finish off their offensive line early in this draft. They know where their bread is buttered, and do need help at the tackle spots for the long term.
Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson
A roster loaded with talent, this could be the Chargers’ year. Finding a corner of this caliber this late in the draft would be a dream.
Zach Allen, DE/OLB, Boston College
Allen is the type of player that the Chiefs need on defense… he can stop the run, he works hard, he is consistent and he is tough.
Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
Campbell would be a dream match up in the Saints’ offense.
Kansas City Chiefs (from Los Angeles Rams)
Connor McGovern, OG/C, Penn State
More toughness on the o-line will help continue the momentum that the Chiefs have build on offense.
David Long, ILB, West Virginia
A relentless linebacker, Long is that tough linebacker that the Pats love.
