  1. Pick No.
    1
    OT
    Mississippi
    Projected trade to Titans
    The Titans could really use an impact defensive player, but protecting Marcus Mariota is No. 1 on the to-do list.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    QB
    North Dakota St.
     
    Projected trade to Browns
    The Browns have no choice but to address the QB position and Wentz is built to play in the AFC North.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    CB
    Florida St.
    The Chargers could look at the DL with this choice, but Ramsey would be an outstanding replacement for Eric Weddle.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    OLB
    UCLA
     
    The Cowboys are in a great spot to draft Tony Romo's successor, but they could opt to load up and make a championship run in 2016.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    DE
    Ohio St.
     
    Projected trade to Jaguars
    The Jaguars need to address the defense and Bosa could team up with last year's top pick, Dante Fowler Jr., to produce a dynamic pass rush.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    DE
    Oregon
    The Ravens usually stick to their draft board and take the best player available. Buckner has a high ceiling and a high floor.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    QB
    California
     
    There's a lot of buzz about the 49ers' growing faith in Blaine Gabbert, but it would take considerable courage to bypass a talented signal-caller in your own backyard.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    OLB
    Notre Dame
    Projected trade to Dolphins
    Even if Smith has to miss a portion of the the 2016 campaign, he's worthy of a top-10 selection.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    CB
    Florida
    The Bucs need to add a playmaker to the back end, and Hargreaves has very good ball skills.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    DE
    Eastern Kentucky
     
    Spence comes with some baggage, but he's a very gifted edge rusher and he would provide a much-needed lift to the Giants' defensive front.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    OLB
    Ohio St.
    The Bears need to add some speed and athleticism to the linebacker spot and Lee is supremely explosive.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    DT
    Louisville
     
    Rankins was dominant at the Senior Bowl and he would provide the Saints with a very disruptive interior presence.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    DT
    Louisiana Tech
    Projected trade to Eagles
    The buzz on Butler is building following an outstanding week at the Senior Bowl.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    RB
    Ohio St.
     
    Oakland has a solid young running back in Latavius Murray, but Elliot is an elite talent and too good to pass up.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    QB
    Memphis
     
    Projected trade to Rams
    Lynch would fit nicely alongside a very young offensive nucleus in Los Angeles.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    OT
    Notre Dame
    The Lions have some good young pieces on the offensive line and Stanley would be a nice upgrade at left tackle.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    OLB
    Georgia
    I'd love to see Floyd and Vic Beasley rushing from opposite sides. That would be some serious speed coming off the edge.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    OT
    Michigan St.
    Conklin isn't flashy, but he's very reliable, tough and instinctive.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    WR
    Mississippi
     
    Treadwell would be a perfect complement to Sammy Watkins.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    ILB
    Alabama
    Ragland would put up monster numbers playing behind the Jets' talented defensive line.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    DT
    Mississippi
     
    The Redskins continue to build through the trenches and secure one of the most talented defenders in the draft.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    OT
    Ohio St.
    The Texans could look at a WR here, but Decker is a plug-and-play starter at tackle.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    Baylor
     
    Coleman would team up with Stefon Diggs to provide Teddy Bridgewater with two young and explosive playmakers.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    FS
    Ohio St.
    Bell lacks ideal size, but he's very instinctive and he gets his hands on a lot of footballs.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    CB
    Clemson
    The Steelers need to add some youth to the back end and Alexander is very polished and physical.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    DT
    Alabama
    The Seahawks could take some hits in free agency at the position and Robinson has enormous upside.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    DE
    Clemson
    The Packers need to get younger and more athletic off the edge. Dodd is just scratching the surface of his potential.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    DT
    Alabama
    Reed can dominate against the run and he has some upside as a pass rusher.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    DE
    Boise St.
    Correa has a great get-off, plenty of production and an unrelenting motor.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    CB
    Ohio St.
    Apple has great size and he would fit well into the scheme in Carolina.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    NT
    Baylor
    The Broncos could take a hit at the DT position in free agency and Billings is ready to play right away.
