    Full Analysis

    January 26, 2018

    1. SAM DARNOLD

      QB

      USC

      The Browns finally land their franchise signal-caller.
    2. SAQUON BARKLEY

      RB

      Penn St.

      I could easily see the Giants addressing the quarterback spot here, but instead they opt for the best player in the draft.
    3. BRADLEY CHUBB

      DE

      N.C. State

      The Colts have several needs to address, but a premier pass rusher is at the top of the list.
    4. MINKAH FITZPATRICK

      DB

      Alabama

      The Browns need more dynamic playmakers on both sides of the ball and Fitzpatrick is the best option available.
    5. QUENTON NELSON

      G

      Notre Dame

      I think the Broncos will address their quarterback need in free agency, which would free them up to take the best available player in this spot. Nelson is the best interior O-line prospect to enter the draft in a long time.
    6. JOSH ROSEN

      QB

      UCLA

      Rosen is ready to start right now and he would give the Jets a key building block on the offensive side of the ball.
    7. MARCUS DAVENPORT

      DE

      Texas-San Antonio

      Davenport reminds me of Ziggy Ansah coming out of BYU, and the Bucs need to add some life to their pass rush.
    8. DENZEL WARD

      CB

      Ohio St.

      The Bears need some offensive firepower, but they can accomplish that in free agency and the middle portion of the draft. Ward lacks ideal size, but he's a dynamic playmaker with the tools to play inside or outside.
    9. TREMAINE EDMUNDS

      LB

      Virginia Tech

      Edmunds is one of my favorite players in the draft. He has a rare blend of size, speed and athleticism. He would be a perfect complement to Reuben Foster at the second level of the 49ers' defense.
    10. ROQUAN SMITH

      OLB

      Georgia

      Smith is a bit undersized, but he makes plays sideline to sideline and provides a physical presence in the middle of the field.
    11. JOSH ALLEN

      QB

      Wyoming

      This would be a bit of a surprise, but the Dolphins can't continue to rely on Ryan Tannehill.
    12. CONNOR WILLIAMS

      OT

      Texas

      Williams saw his stock drop a little bit this fall, but I still believe he's the best offensive tackle in the draft class.
    13. BAKER MAYFIELD

      QB

      Oklahoma

      The Redskins have a big decision to make with Kirk Cousins. If they decided to move on from him, Mayfield would be a perfect fit in this system.
    14. MIKE HUGHES

      CB

      Central Florida

      Hughes has outstanding fluidity and ball skills. His upside is very enticing.
    15. VITA VEA

      DT

      Washington

      This isn't a pressing need for the Cardinals, but in this scenario, Vea is just too good to pass up.
    16. ORLANDO BROWN

      OT

      Oklahoma

      The Ravens need to address the wide receiver position, but they have a good track record of filling that void with veteran players in free agency. Brown would immediately start at right tackle for Baltimore, just like his father did a little more than a decade ago.
    17. DERWIN JAMES

      S

      Florida St.

      James was made to play in Gus Bradley's defenses. He's a more explosive version of Kam Chancellor.
    18. ISAIAH OLIVER

      CB

      Colorado

      Oliver has excellent size and speed. He can locate and play the ball down the field. The Seahawks are likely headed toward a rebuild in the secondary.
    19. MAURICE HURST

      DT

      Michigan

      Hurst has an explosive first step and he'd excel playing the 3-technique for Rod Marinelli.
    20. BILLY PRICE

      C

      Ohio St.

      Price can play any of the three interior positions and his nasty demeanor fits with what GM Bob Quinn is building in Detroit.
    21. DA'RON PAYNE

      DT

      Alabama

      The Bills traded away Marcell Dareus in the fall and they need to add another difference-maker to their defensive front.
    22. JOSH JACKSON

      CB

      Iowa

      There is some concern about Jackson's deep speed, but he has the best ball skills in the entire draft class.
    23. ISAIAH WYNN

      G

      Georgia

      Wynn was an undersized offensive tackle at Georgia, but I believe he has Pro Bowl potential as an interior offensive lineman.
    24. CALVIN RIDLEY

      WR

      Alabama

      The Panthers continue their recent trend and add another explosive weapon for Cam Newton.
    25. JAMES DANIELS

      C

      Iowa

      Daniels is the best center prospect in the draft and I believe he could play guard if needed. I think you will see his stock soar over the next few months.
    26. HARRISON PHILLIPS

      DT

      Stanford

      Phillips has outstanding power and I believe he's an underrated athlete. He dominates against the run.
    27. CHRISTIAN KIRK

      WR

      Texas A&M

      I'd love to see Kirk line up and play in this offense with Drew Brees. He's the most polished wideout in the draft.
    28. DONTE JACKSON

      CB

      LSU

      I wouldn't be shocked if the Steelers took a running back like Derrius Guice or Ronald Jones here, but I have them landing a very talented cornerback instead. Jackson has inside/outside flexibility and he might be the fastest player in the entire draft.
    29. HAYDEN HURST

      TE

      South Carolina

      The Jaguars need to add another tight end and I love both Hurst and South Dakota State's Dallas Goedert. Either option would be a nice fit.
    30. ARDEN KEY

      DE

      LSU

      Key could drop because of some off-field issues as well as an inconsistent fall. However, his upside is outrageous and Mike Zimmer would be the right coach to help him reach that level.
    31. MIKE MCGLINCHEY

      OT

      Notre Dame

      The Patriots could lose Nate Solder in free agency. McGlinchey could step right in and take his place.
    32. RASHAAN EVANS

      LB

      Alabama

      The Eagles love explosive defenders who play with an edge. Evans fits that profile.
  2. Bucky Brooks

    Full Analysis

    January 30, 2018

    1. SAM DARNOLD

      QB

      USC

      Despite the turnover woes that have led to questions about his readiness to play, Darnold could come off the board at No. 1 to serve a year-long apprenticeship to Alex Smith or another veteran quarterback who comes on board.
    2. SAQUON BARKLEY

      RB

      Penn St.

      The most dynamic running back in the draft would alleviate a lot of the pressure on Eli Manning to carry the squad.
    3. BRADLEY CHUBB

      DE

      N.C. State

      Rugged defender with a power-based game that overwhelms blockers on the edge.
    4. MINKAH FITZPATRICK

      DB

      Alabama

      John Dorsey loves defensive backs with size, speed, athleticism and versatility. Fitzpatrick checks off all of the boxes.
    5. JOSH ROSEN

      QB

      UCLA

      The Broncos could elect to snag a veteran signal-caller, but the UCLA star could tickle John Elway's fancy as a polished pocket passer.
    6. BAKER MAYFIELD

      QB

      Oklahoma

      The Heisman Trophy winner could be an enticing option for the Jets based on his alpha-dog mentality and ability to win big games.
    7. MARCUS DAVENPORT

      DE

      Texas-San Antonio

      Disruptive edge rushers with length, athleticism and sack production are always coveted at a premium.
    8. DENZEL WARD

      CB

      Ohio St.

      Smooth cover corner with a polished game. Ward would upgrade the secondary as a premier CB1.
    9. TREMAINE EDMUNDS

      LB

      Virginia Tech

      Versatile playmaker ideally suited to play the "Leo" role in the 49ers' defense.
    10. MIKE HUGHES

      CB

      Central Florida

      Explosive athlete with the speed and movement skills to blossom into a CB1.
    11. QUENTON NELSON

      G

      Notre Dame

      Adding a rugged road-grader will give the Dolphins' O-line a little more toughness and physicality at the point of attack.
    12. ORLANDO BROWN

      OT

      Oklahoma

      The Bengals need a dominant presence on the edge to shore up a leaky O-line that underperformed in 2017.
    13. JOSH ALLEN

      QB

      Wyoming

      Colt McCoy serves as the team's bridge quarterback until the young gunslinger is ready to assume the QB1 role.
    14. ARDEN KEY

      DE

      LSU

      The enigmatic pass rusher hasn't played up to his potential, but his length, athleticism and natural skills could make him a worthwhile gamble on draft day.
    15. CALVIN RIDLEY

      WR

      Alabama

      The silky smooth pass-catcher from 'Bama is an ideal No. 1 receiver in any offense. He could replace Larry Fitzgerald as the Cardinals' WR1 or spend a season soaking up knowledge from the legendary receiver as a WR2 before assuming the lead role in the passing game in 2019.
    16. CONNOR WILLIAMS

      OT

      Texas

      The Ravens need another bookend blocker to keep Joe Flacco upright in the pocket against an impressive collection of pass rushers in the AFC North.
    17. VITA VEA

      DT

      Washington

      Big, athletic run stopper to plug as a nose or 3-technique in Gus Bradley's defense.
    18. DERWIN JAMES

      S

      Florida St.

      The 'Hawks find a Kam Chancellor clone to fill the void as the enforcer between the hashes.
    19. COURTLAND SUTTON

      WR

      SMU

      The Cowboys need to make a decision on Dez Bryant's future this offseason. If the team parts ways with him, Sutton could step in as the team's new WR1.
    20. MAURICE HURST

      DT

      Michigan

      The potential loss of Haloti Ngata, who's due to become a free agent, could leave a crater in the middle of the Lions' defense. Hurst is a blue-collar 3-technique with the motor and game to be a disruptive force on the interior.
    21. MASON RUDOLPH

      QB

      Oklahoma St.

      If Sean McDermott values prototypical traits and intangibles in his QB1, Rudolph could be the guy for the Bills. The Oklahoma State star is a natural leader with the tools to be a long-time starter in the league.
    22. JOSH JACKSON

      CB

      Iowa

      A defense can never have enough ball-hawking cornerbacks with the size to match up with the league's big receivers.
    23. JAIRE ALEXANDER

      CB

      Louisville

      Wade Phillips could use another corner with playmaking skills on the island.
    24. CHRISTIAN KIRK

      WR

      Texas A&M

      Interim GM Marty Hurney could view Kirk as a Steve Smith-like playmaker with the potential to develop into a No. 1 receiver down the road.
    25. HAROLD LANDRY

      DE

      Boston College

      The Titans desperately need a sack artist on the edge. Despite Landry's disappointing final season with BC, he's a natural pass rusher with a knack for getting to the QB.
    26. BILLY PRICE

      C

      Ohio St.

      Versatile interior blocker with a nasty demeanor and a rugged game.
    27. ROQUAN SMITH

      OLB

      Georgia

      Smith would give the Saints a dynamic playmaker in the middle of their defense.
    28. DERRIUS GUICE

      RB

      LSU

      It might be time for the Steelers to move on from Le'Veon Bell. His contract demands could result in him receiving the franchise tag again this offseason. Guice gives the team a solid backup plan for his potential departure this year or next year.
    29. LAMAR JACKSON

      QB

      Louisville

      The most explosive playmaker in the draft is not a finished product as a passer, but he would add a dimension to the Jaguars' offense as a dual-threat athlete. With a spread offense aficionado (Nathaniel Hackett) at the controls, the Jaguars could craft an offense that would allow him to shine as a QB1 down the road.
    30. DA'RON PAYNE

      DT

      Alabama

      The Vikings could follow the "BPA" (best player available) premise and add a rock-solid interior defender to the rotation.
    31. ISAIAH OLIVER

      CB

      Colorado

      The potential loss of Malcolm Butler, who's due to hit free agency this offseason, could lead the Patriots to take a cover corner early in the draft.
    32. RASHAAN EVANS

      LB

      Alabama

      Evans is a rugged ILB perfectly suited to play as a "plugger" behind a talented front line.
  3. Charley Casserly

    Full Analysis

    February 13, 2018

    1. SAM DARNOLD

      QB

      USC

      Darnold is the best QB in the draft.
    2. JOSH ROSEN

      QB

      UCLA

      The Giants land the most pro-ready QB in the draft.
    3. SAQUON BARKLEY

      RB

      Penn St.

      Andrew Luck gets a dominant runner.
    4. MINKAH FITZPATRICK

      DB

      Alabama

      A versatile talent who can play CB or S.
    5. MARCUS DAVENPORT

      DE

      Texas-San Antonio

      Davenport is an excellent pass rusher; best as a 3-4 OLB.
    6. BAKER MAYFIELD

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Will Mayfield have the best NFL career of any QB in this class?
    7. BRADLEY CHUBB

      DE

      N.C. State

      Improving the pass rush is a major need for Tampa Bay.
    8. CALVIN RIDLEY

      WR

      Alabama

      The Bears get Mitchell Trubisky a weapon with this pick.
    9. DENZEL WARD

      CB

      Ohio St.

      With Bradley Chubb off the board, the 49ers fill their next biggest need on defense.
    10. TREMAINE EDMUNDS

      LB

      Virginia Tech

      Edmunds is the best all-around LB in the draft.
    11. ROQUAN SMITH

      OLB

      Georgia

      Smith's an excellent athlete who excels in coverage.
    12. QUENTON NELSON

      G

      Notre Dame

      The Bengals land the best player in the draft. They bypass a bigger need at OT to get Nelson.
    13. VITA VEA

      DT

      Washington

      With Vea and Jonathan Allen, the D-line all of a sudden becomes a strength of the team.
    14. MIKE HUGHES

      CB

      Central Florida

      Hughes is a versatile CB who can play both off and press coverage.
    15. JOSH ALLEN

      QB

      Wyoming

      Allen will be the fourth QB off the board. Arizona would do cartwheels if he were still available here. Someone will probably trade up to get him, and maybe Arizona will be the team to do it.
    16. MIKE MCGLINCHEY

      OT

      Notre Dame

      This gives the Ravens a bookend OT with Ronnie Stanley.
    17. RASHAAN EVANS

      LB

      Alabama

      A DT is also a possibility here.
    18. ARDEN KEY

      DE

      LSU

      With questions about whether Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril will be with the Seahawks next season, a pass rusher will be needed.
    19. TAVEN BRYAN

      DT

      Florida

      Bryan has excellent upfield quickness. He fits Rod Marinelli's scheme.
    20. DA'RON PAYNE

      DT

      Alabama

      Strong player vs. the run, and he has some pass-rush potential.
    21. BILLY PRICE

      C

      Ohio St.

      The first priority for Buffalo should be to trade up to get a QB. If that doesn't work out, then Price can replace Eric Wood at center.
    22. JOSH JACKSON

      CB

      Iowa

      The Bills get a bookend CB to pair with Tre'Davious White.
    23. ISAIAH OLIVER

      CB

      Colorado

      Trumaine Johnson is due to become a free agent, and CB is already a weakness for the Rams.
    24. CHRISTIAN KIRK

      WR

      Texas A&M

      The Panthers need a speedy WR. Kirk fits the bill.
    25. JAMES DANIELS

      C

      Iowa

      Help is needed on the interior of the Titans' O-line.
    26. ISAIAH WYNN

      G

      Georgia

      He played left tackle in college but fits best as a guard at the next level.
    27. HAROLD LANDRY

      DE

      Boston College

      Landry racked up 16.5 sacks in 2016 before an injury-plagued senior season.
    28. DERRIUS GUICE

      RB

      LSU

      I am not optimistic the Steelers will get a long-term deal done with Le'Veon Bell, which is why Guice makes sense here.
    29. CONNOR WILLIAMS

      OT

      Texas

      TE and WR are also a possibility here.
    30. DERWIN JAMES

      S

      Florida St.

      Solidifies the safety position opposite Harrison Smith.
    31. HARRISON PHILLIPS

      DT

      Stanford

      Phillips is a run-stopper. He fills a need for New England.
    32. DONTE JACKSON

      CB

      LSU

      Philly has worked to improve the CB position, but the Eagles still need help there.
  4. Lance Zierlein

    Full Analysis

    January 30, 2018

    1. SAM DARNOLD

      QB

      USC

      Darnold is the best QB in this draft, but the Browns would be wise to let him sit and learn as long as they can.
    2. JOSH ROSEN

      QB

      UCLA

      While there are better players on the board, the Giants might reach to fill a need.
    3. BRADLEY CHUBB

      DE

      N.C. State

      The Colts could go in several directions with this pick, but adding Chubb would address a need without them having to reach to do so.
    4. SAQUON BARKLEY

      RB

      Penn St.

      With Darnold in the fold, the Browns go after the top RB in the draft -- a player who can help change the culture in Cleveland.
    5. QUENTON NELSON

      G

      Notre Dame

      The Broncos need a guard, and they might have stumbled into an All-Pro with the powerful Nelson.
    6. JOSH ALLEN

      QB

      Wyoming

      While this wouldn't be my pick, the Jets have to find a signal-caller. Allen fits the size and arm-talent profile GMs love.
    7. MINKAH FITZPATRICK

      DB

      Alabama

      Fitzpatrick is a versatile defender who can be used around the field in a variety of spots that put him near the football.
    8. DENZEL WARD

      CB

      Ohio St.

      The Bears' secondary needs an upgrade, and while Ward isn't the biggest cornerback in the draft, he is outstanding in coverage.
    9. TREMAINE EDMUNDS

      LB

      Virginia Tech

      Edmunds is a physical freak with a combination of height, weight, speed and production that we've never seen at linebacker.
    10. ROQUAN SMITH

      OLB

      Georgia

      The Raiders have been in need of help at inside linebacker for a while, and they get an ascending playmaker in this spot.
    11. BAKER MAYFIELD

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Adam Gase has worked with a variety of quarterbacks and understands how to finesse his offense to fit the strengths of his QB.
    12. ORLANDO BROWN

      OT

      Oklahoma

      Cincinnati needs help on the offensive line. It could opt for Brown here, thanks to his enormous frame and long arms.
    13. VITA VEA

      DT

      Washington

      Big, talented defensive lineman. Many scouts foresee him making a Haloti Ngata-like impact once he figures it all out.
    14. JOSH JACKSON

      CB

      Iowa

      Jackson is a ballhawk with good size and length who can play bookend to Kevin King at CB.
    15. CONNOR WILLIAMS

      OT

      Texas

      Williams was better in 2016 than 2017, and he might end up kicking inside to guard, but that won't matter, as Arizona has needs at both tackle and guard.
    16. CALVIN RIDLEY

      WR

      Alabama

      Ridley would add blazing speed and outstanding route-running ability as a "play-now" talent.
    17. DA'RON PAYNE

      DT

      Alabama

      Payne can overwhelm rushing attacks. He has the talent to become a much better pass rusher, as well. Can you imagine that defensive front, with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram already in the fold?!
    18. DERWIN JAMES

      S

      Florida St.

      James feels like a perfect fit in Seattle, and he's a positive influence in the locker room, too.
    19. MAURICE HURST

      DT

      Michigan

      Hurst-to-Dallas feels like one of the cleanest fits in this mock. Rod Marinelli wants more rush from the interior, and Hurst fits his scheme and style.
    20. MARCUS DAVENPORT

      DE

      Texas-San Antonio

      Davenport has flashes that are reminiscent of Ezekiel Ansah when he came out of BYU in 2013. Detroit might have to replace Ansah this offseason, as he's due to hit free agency.
    21. BILLY PRICE

      C

      Ohio St.

      Price is a tremendously powerful drive blocker who can fill the void left by the injury to Eric Wood.
    22. RASHAAN EVANS

      LB

      Alabama

      Evans has some injury concerns, but he's physical and fast. He can play inside or outside linebacker while also offering pass-rush help.
    23. ISAIAH OLIVER

      CB

      Colorado

      Oliver is still a little raw in coverage, but his length and speed will be appealing to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
    24. JAMARCO JONES

      OT

      Ohio St.

      Jones might be a surprise first-rounder. He has good arm length and might have a higher upside than many of the tackles in this draft.
    25. HAROLD LANDRY

      DE

      Boston College

      Landry dealt with injury and inconsistency in 2017. He might have fallen down the board a little, but he still has the talent to burn the edge as a pass rusher.
    26. ISAIAH WYNN

      G

      Georgia

      Wynn is a perfect fit for the Falcons' scheme, and they happen to need guard help. Wynn is also a capable swing tackle, if he's needed in that role.
    27. DALLAS GOEDERT

      TE

      South Dakota St.

      In a draft that might be a little light on high-end receivers, Goedert is one of the premier pass-catchers at tight end and offers the Saints another playmaker.
    28. RONNIE HARRISON

      S

      Alabama

      It's been a long time since Pittsburgh drafted an Alabama player, but Harrison is a thumper with speed and plays the game like a Steeler.
    29. LAMAR JACKSON

      QB

      Louisville

      The Jaguars take Jackson to prepare him to be the QB of the future.
    30. MIKE MCGLINCHEY

      OT

      Notre Dame

      The Vikings need to strengthen their tackle position. McGlinchey could help, although he's inconsistent against power rushers.
    31. MIKE HUGHES

      CB

      Central Florida

      Hughes isn't the biggest cornerback, but he has tremendous speed and twitch. He's also an outstanding kick returner.
    32. WILL HERNANDEZ

      G

      Texas-El Paso

      Hernandez showed what he was capable of at the Senior Bowl and would be another powerful run blocker to help maintain a diverse offensive scheme.

    February 6, 2018

    1. SAM DARNOLD

      QB

      USC

      The Browns need a leader and playmaker at quarterback. Darnold is the total package.
    2. JOSH ROSEN

      QB

      UCLA

      Rosen's the best pure passer in the class.
    3. SAQUON BARKLEY

      RB

      Penn St.

      Barkley's the top player on the board for most teams, and the Colts can't rely on Frank Gore, who's due to become a free agent, forever.
    4. BRADLEY CHUBB

      DE

      N.C. State

      Chubb on one side and Myles Garrett on the other? Quarterbacks beware.
    5. MINKAH FITZPATRICK

      DB

      Alabama

      For now, I'll say Kirk Cousins ends up with Denver, opening a spot for the Broncos to add Fitzpatrick to their defense.
    6. JOSH ALLEN

      QB

      Wyoming

      If the Jets liked Christian Hackenberg, they're going to love Allen. The Wyoming product showed during Senior Bowl week his ability to utilize his talents to the fullest.
    7. QUENTON NELSON

      G

      Notre Dame

      Nelson's a dominant presence who will help Jameis Winston and whoever is carrying the ball for the Bucs over the next decade.
    8. DENZEL WARD

      CB

      Ohio St.

      The Bears' secondary needs an upgrade. Ward's toughness and agility in coverage will help him overcome his average size.
    9. TREMAINE EDMUNDS

      LB

      Virginia Tech

      Edmunds is athletic enough to handle coverage duties and rush the passer.
    10. ROQUAN SMITH

      OLB

      Georgia

      Smith has "bench to bench" range, tracking down ball carriers all over the field.
    11. MARCUS DAVENPORT

      DE

      Texas-San Antonio

      While Davenport is still raw in some ways, his length and agility will pay dividends for the Dolphins sooner than some might expect.
    12. CONNOR WILLIAMS

      OT

      Texas

      Williams' ability to move the line and pass protect will make him a hot commodity on draft day.
    13. CALVIN RIDLEY

      WR

      Alabama

      Ridley will be a great asset to new Washington quarterback Alex Smith.
    14. VITA VEA

      DT

      Washington

      Green Bay needs pass rushers, but Vea can wreak havoc outside and inside, freeing up Clay Matthews and Nick Perry to do their thing.
    15. BAKER MAYFIELD

      QB

      Oklahoma

      I won't be surprised if a team trades ahead of the Cardinals to grab Mayfield, who should be a strong leader at the next level.
    16. COURTLAND SUTTON

      WR

      SMU

      Flacco needs another downfield threat like Sutton to maximize his talent.
    17. ORLANDO BROWN

      OT

      Oklahoma

      Whether Brown plays at left or right tackle doesn't matter. He'll eclipse his opponent with pure size and play with a nasty streak.
    18. DERWIN JAMES

      S

      Florida St.

      This is an easy fit for James, whose game is too similar to Kam Chancellor's to ignore his potential in the Seahawks' defense.
    19. DA'RON PAYNE

      DT

      Alabama

      Payne showed in the College Football Playoff that he can be a force in the middle, which is something the Cowboys' defense lacks.
    20. MAURICE HURST

      DT

      Michigan

      Keeping Hurst in-state will help the Lions pressure QBs from the interior, which is something Detroit has struggled to do since Ndamukong Suh left town.
    21. LAMAR JACKSON

      QB

      Louisville

      After Jackson learns the ropes from Tyrod Taylor, he'll use his strong arm and amazing speed to turn defenses upside-down.
    22. BILLY PRICE

      C

      Ohio St.

      Eric Wood's career-ending injury makes finding a sturdy replacement like Price a must.
    23. MIKE HUGHES

      CB

      Central Florida

      The Rams could use help in the secondary, even if Trumaine Johnson is re-signed.
    24. MIKE MCGLINCHEY

      OT

      Notre Dame

      McGlinchey is a good fit for a Panthers team looking to dominate on the ground.
    25. HAROLD LANDRY

      DE

      Boston College

      With Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan a year away from free agency, the Titans need to find their next pass rusher. Landry will be a good value at this point in the draft.
    26. HARRISON PHILLIPS

      DT

      Stanford

      Phillips is a tough customer inside, and the Falcons' interior D-line might have some holes to fill this spring if Dontari Poe and Ahtyba Rubin depart.
    27. DALLAS GOEDERT

      TE

      South Dakota St.

      Goedert has a chance to be the second coming of Jimmy Graham in the Saints' offense.
    28. RASHAAN EVANS

      LB

      Alabama

      Evans fits beautifully in the Steelers' defense. He'll be able to play inside or outside.
    29. JAMES WASHINGTON

      WR

      Oklahoma St.

      With Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson due to become free agents, the Jaguars will likely need to bolster the position this year.
    30. KOLTON MILLER

      OT

      UCLA

      Miller isn't getting a lot of pub outside the West Coast, but he's a future starter.
    31. ANDREW BROWN

      DE

      Virginia

      The Patriots need help up front. Brown's length and surprising agility would allow him to play outside on early downs and inside in pass-rush situations.
    32. MALIK JEFFERSON

      OLB

      Texas

      Not every NFL scout believes Jefferson is worthy of a first-round pick, but I think the Eagles could benefit from his size and athleticism inside or outside.
