  1. Pick No.
    1
    OT
    Mississippi
     
    Projected trade to Titans
    A trade down would be nice for Tennessee, but I don't see that happening.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    CB
    Florida St.
     
    Projected trade to Browns
    Cleveland has been sniffing around veteran QBs, which could lead to them taking the best player available at No. 2.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    DE
    Oregon
     
    One of the more consistently dominant players in the draft class.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    DE
    Ohio St.
     
    The Cowboys can't count on Randy Gregory, and Bosa will have an immediate impact.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    OLB
    UCLA
     
    Projected trade to Jaguars
    The Jags need to get more explosive on defense, and Jack can lineup at just about any position on defense.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    OT
    Notre Dame
     
    The Ravens are at their best when they're strong in the trenches.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    QB
    California
     
    The 49ers can't afford to pass on a potential franchise QB in their own backyard.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    RB
    Ohio St.
     
    Projected trade to Eagles
    The Eagles need to get more explosive in the backfield and Elliott would be a perfect fit.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    CB
    Florida
     
    The Bucs added Brent Grimes in free agency, but that shouldn't preclude them from taking Hargreaves at this spot. He is a ball magnet.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    WR
    Mississippi
     
    The Giants were aggressive in free agency on defense, which frees them up to get a running mate for Odell Beckham.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    QB
    North Dakota St.
     
    The Bears have an established QB, which will allow Wentz the time needed to develop.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    DT
    Louisville
     
    Rankins will add some quickness to the Saints' defensive front.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    DE
    Clemson
     
    The Dolphins added Mario Williams and re-signed Cameron Wake, but they still need to add some youth and depth off the edge.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    OT
    Michigan St.
     
    After signing Kelechi Osemele, the Raiders add another physical, tough blocker in Conklin.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    WR
    Baylor
     
    Projected trade to Rams
    The Rams could look at the QB spot here. Instead, they opt for another explosive weapon on offense.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    DE
    Clemson
     
    The Lions need a defensive tackle, but they can find one later in the draft.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    ILB
    Alabama
     
    Ragland is as pro-ready as any defender in this draft class.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    OT
    Ohio St.
     
    Keeping Andrew Luck upright has to be priority No. 1 and Decker's arrival would allow Jack Mewhort to move back to guard.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    OLB
    Ohio St.
     
    The Bills need a playmaker at linebacker, and "playmaker" is a good word to describe Lee.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    OLB
    Georgia
     
    The Jets satisfy their need for an explosive edge rusher.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    DT
    Alabama
     
    The Redskins are in need of a run-stuffing defensive tackle. Reed fills that void.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    WR
    Notre Dame
     
    After adding a new QB and RB in free agency, the Texans continue to bolster their offense with Fuller.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    WR
    TCU
     
    This draft should be about adding pieces around Teddy Bridgewater and Doctson is a great fit.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    DT
    Alabama
     
    Robinson has tremendous upside. He will be a great fit alongside Geno Atkins.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    CB
    Clemson
     
    The Steelers have a need at the position and Alexander answered some questions at his pro day.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    CB
    Ohio St.
     
    He fits the profile of what the Seahawks look for in CBs.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    NT
    Baylor
     
    Billings would provide the Packers with a strong, steady presence in the middle of their defense.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    CB
    Houston
     
    Jackson is one my favorite players in draft and he would be great replacement for Sean Smith.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    QB
    Memphis
     
    The Cardinals secure their QB of the future and he can learn behind Carson Palmer.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    CB
    Miami
    The Panthers need to add more pieces in the secondary around Josh Norman and Burns is a long, athletic corner.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    DT
    Mississippi St.
    He would be a nice replacement for Malik Jackson.
