  1. Pick No.
    1
    DE
    Texas A&M
    There's a possibility Mitchell Trubisky gets the call here, but some in the building want to select the pass rusher from Texas A&M first and a quarterback later.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    QB
    North Carolina
    Head coach Kyle Shanahan would enjoy coaching the North Carolina QB, but don't be surprised if some team ( Jets? Browns?) explores a move up in a trade at this spot.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    S
    Ohio St.
    The Bears picked up Quintin Demps as their new strong safety, and add Ohio State's rangy free safety.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    Blake Bortles needs a running game to take the pressure off; the LSU runner is the perfect answer.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    DE
    Stanford
    The value this Stanford pass rusher provides is too great for the Titans to pass up.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    CB
    Ohio St.
    The demise of Darrelle Revis leaves a big hole in the Jets' secondary; the Ohio State corner fills it nicely.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    S
    LSU
    Like he was at LSU, Adams will be a defensive leader for the Chargers for years to come.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    RB
    Stanford
    An ultra-versatile offensive threat at Stanford, McCaffrey can help Cam Newton's cause.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    DE
    Alabama
    Arthritic shoulders and average athleticism testing could push the Alabama lineman down boards a bit. The Bengals might see another Geno Atkins.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    CB
    Ohio St.
    The Bills replace Stephon Gilmore with another rangy cover man, making Conley the third defensive back from Ohio State in the top 10.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    DE
    Tennessee
    Finding a pass rusher is a major priority for the Saints, and the Tennessee defender's relentless nature should endear him to the fans in New Orleans.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    TE
    Alabama
    Cleveland selects Alabama's athletic tight end and the top pass-catcher in the draft.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    WR
    Clemson
    Larry Fitzgerald is on his way to retirement, and the physical dominance Williams displayed at Clemson complements Arizona's speedy receivers.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    WR
    Washington
    Carson Wentz will be happy to see a vertical threat like Washington's Ross in the fold.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    OG
    Temple
    New GM Chris Ballard continues to rebuild the offensive line in front of Andrew Luck. Dawkins was a great tackle at Temple and could start there at the next level, but he'll be a special guard in the NFL.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    OT
    Alabama
    If Buffalo takes this physically dominant tackle from Alabama at 10, then Ozzie Newsome will find another bargain here.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    LB
    Temple
    The Temple pass rusher was one of the top risers throughout the postseason draft process; he can line up outside or inside for Washington.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    WR
    Western Michigan
    Davis' inability to work out for teams this offseason could hurt him, but the Titans will gladly add the Western Michigan receiver to their roster.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    RB
    Florida St.
    Cook and the Buccaneers seem like a nice fit, and it reunites Jameis Winston with his former Florida State teammate.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    OT
    Wisconsin
    There's a new left tackle from Wisconsin in the not-so-sleepy Western town.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    LB
    Alabama
    Questions about Foster's maturity and shoulder could cause the Alabama linebacker to drop down boards. Detroit should be willing to take a chance on his talent at this spot.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    OG
    Western Kentucky
    The Dolphins are moving last year's first-rounder, Laremy Tunsil, to left tackle, making room for the Western Kentucky swing-man at guard.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    TE
    Miami
    The Miami tight end's promise as a playmaker on offense makes Eli Manning smile.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    CB
    Washington
    The Raiders like height and length in their corners, and the corner from Washington presents both.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    QB
    Texas Tech
    I don't expect Mahomes to still be waiting around at this pick, as someone could trade ahead of Houston to secure his services. But the Texans wouldn't mind seeing this strong-armed passer from Texas Tech here. If Mahomes is gone, N.C. State safety Josh Jones would be a great fit.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    DT
    Michigan St.
    Seattle takes a chance on the Michigan State defender's talent and scheme versatility.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    QB
    Clemson
    Alex Smith has a significant cap hit in 2018, and is a free agent the following spring. The Clemson QB should be able to take control of the offense after a year or two.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    CB
    Florida
    The Florida corner has the height, length and agility to start for the Cowboys on Day 1.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    OLB
    Wisconsin
    Green Bay will have a tough choice between Watt and Jabrill Peppers. The Wisconsin pass rusher might win out if the Packers think they can mine secondary talent later in a deep draft.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    S
    N.C. State
    The aggressive, strong defender from N.C. State will make a difference on Sundays.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    OLB
    Kansas St.
    The second half of the Super Bowl showed the Falcons' need for a strong, consistent pass rusher like this K-State defensive end.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    LB
    Florida
    This Florida Gator brings athleticism and toughness to the middle of the Saints' defense.
