  1. Maurice Jones-Drew

    Full Analysis

    February 12, 2019

    1. Nick Bosa

      DL

      Ohio St.

      The Cardinals must get the absolute best player in the draft. Bosa is just that, adding significant talent to this roster.
    2. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      The 49ers get the kind of edge rusher they need. Another first-rounder gives them one of the best young D-line units in the league.
    3. Rashan Gary

      DL

      Michigan

      As a talented and explosive pass rusher, Gary addresses the Jets' top priority on defense.
    4. Clelin Ferrell

      EDGE

      Clemson

      Pass rushers aren't hard to come by in this draft class. Oakland finds a natural in Ferrell.
    5. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      This pick is solely to help Jameis Winston. Bruce Arians loves to pair a downhill running game with his play-action passing concepts.
    6. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      With Eli Manning nearing the end of his career, the Giants get a young, strong-armed quarterback to be his successor.
    7. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      The Jags have an opportunity to get the next Patrick Mahomes. Murray is an explosive playmaker who will fit in well with a good defense.
    8. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      Detroit fills an edge-rushing need with a talented prospect whose stock rose at the Senior Bowl.
    9. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      This offseason is all about building around Josh Allen. And this big, talented receiver is the perfect fit.
    10. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      The Broncos continue to draft quarterbacks until they get it right. Jones is a big, athletic signal-caller who can make all the throws.
    11. Cody Ford

      T

      Oklahoma

      With the hiring of Zac Taylor, Cincy's emphasis will be on protecting Andy Dalton.
    12. Jaylon Ferguson

      EDGE

      Louisiana Tech

      The Packers need an edge presence. Why not grab the player who just broke the FBS record for career sacks?
    13. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      With the (possible) departure of Ryan Tannehill, Miami must address this position. Lock has the quick release everyone is looking for.
    14. Quinnen Williams

      DL

      Alabama

      With the (potential) loss of free agent Grady Jarrett, Dan Quinn adds the best interior lineman in the draft.
    15. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      Taylor is a big tackle who can immediately help an offensive line that was plagued by injuries in 2018.
    16. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      With Cam Newton's health concerns, the Panthers have to be able to protect their franchise face.
    17. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      Williams is a stud lineman who will help solidify this offensive line -- and protecting Baker Mayfield is a must.
    18. Greg Little

      T

      Mississippi

      The Vikings paid Kirk Cousins a ton of money last offseason to elevate their offense, but a porous O-line never really gave him a chance. Fixing the unit up front will go a long way to getting this offense back on track.
    19. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      Speed, speed, speed. Brown's an explosive playmaker who will open up this offense.
    20. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      White is the perfect fit for this Steelers defense. He can do everything exceptionally well.
    21. Ed Oliver

      DL

      Houston

      With most of the top edge rushers off the board, Seattle gets a dominant force for their interior defensive line.
    22. Jachai Polite

      EDGE

      Florida

      With Terrell Suggs set to hit free agency at age 36, Baltimore needs some young juice off the edge. Polite is capable of providing consistent QB pressure with his explosiveness and burst.
    23. Tytus Howard

      T

      Alabama St.

      The Texans have to remake their offensive line, and Howard could be the starting piece to build around.
    24. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      The Raiders add a top-notch cornerback to help shore up the back end of the defense.
    25. Dexter Lawrence

      DL

      Clemson

      Lawrence is a big, talented player who will alleviate pressure on Fletcher Cox.
    26. N'Keal Harry

      WR

      Arizona State

      Another playmaker to help Andrew Luck, Harry is physical and will nicely complement T.Y. Hilton.
    27. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      With the possible departure of Jared Cook in free agency, Oakland hits with Fant, a versatile tight end who prevents mismatch problems for opposing defenses.
    28. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      Bush fits the ideal mold for Gus Bradley's defense, and a sideline-to-sideline playmaker is a must for this unit.
    29. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      The Chiefs get a top cornerback -- a position in which they were lacking in 2018 -- with really good ball skills.
    30. Christian Wilkins

      DL

      Clemson

      Wilkins will help the Packers generate a pass rush with his explosive ability in tight spaces.
    31. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      The Rams add depth to a position where teams need at least three viable options. Baker's ability to play press is why I like him here.
    32. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      With uncertainty surrounding Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots add a tight end who has some similarities to the four-time first-team All-Pro. Hockenson can come in and start from Day 1.
  2. Chad Reuter

    Full Analysis

    February 5, 2019

    1. Nick Bosa

      DL

      Ohio St.

      Best player. No. 1 pick. Pretty simple.
    2. Quinnen Williams

      DL

      Alabama

      It might be a tough call here between Williams and Kentucky's Josh Allen. DeForest Buckner's versatility could allow the team to put Buckner and Williams on the field at the same time.
    3. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      Allen's the pass rusher the Jets have long sought.
    4. Rashan Gary

      DL

      Michigan

      The Raiders have to address their pass rush -- they recorded a league-low 13 sacks in 2018 after trading Khalil Mack.
    5. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      I expect the Bucs to move down from this spot, eventually picking Bruce Arians' new David Johnson.
    6. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      Haskins and Saquon Barkley together would be fun to watch.
    7. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      Lock has been inconsistent, but so was Josh Allen -- the seventh overall pick last year -- coming out of college.
    8. Clelin Ferrell

      EDGE

      Clemson

      Replacing Ziggy Ansah, who's expected to depart in free agency, is a must for Detroit.
    9. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      Taylor steps in to help protect second-year quarterback Josh Allen.
    10. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Picking behind at least two teams with quarterback needs, John Elway will have to either trade up to land his guy or take whichever top signal-caller is available at No. 10 if he wants to improve the Broncos' QB situation via the draft.
    11. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      The Bengals pick a corner after ranking dead last in pass defense last season. Plus, Darqueze Dennard is due to hit free agency this offseason, and will Dre Kirkpatrick become a salary-cap casualty?
    12. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      Sweat fills a void by adding strength and agility off the edge.
    13. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      The Dolphins will probably look to move on from Ryan Tannehill. Jones received a first-round grade from the NFL College Advisory Committee.
    14. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      Simmons is a beast in the middle. Keep in mind: Falcons DTs Grady Jarrett and Terrell McClain are due to hit the market this offseason.
    15. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      Washington could play Williams at guard or tackle.
    16. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      Thomas Davis will not return to the Panthers in 2019, leaving a void at LB. Could the talented White fall to the middle of the first round like Tremaine Edmunds did last year?
    17. Christian Wilkins

      DL

      Clemson

      If the quarterbacks don't go early in Round 1, Wilkins will probably be off the board before this pick. However, if there's an early run on passers, there will be some bargains, like Wilkins at No. 17.
    18. Ed Oliver

      DL

      Houston

      Oliver's lack of size and length will hurt his stock, but this pick will ultimately prove to be a steal.
    19. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      Luke Stocker is due to become a free agent and Delanie Walker is coming off a severe ankle injury, so Tennessee goes with a tight end here.
    20. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      If Antonio Brown ultimately does not return to the Steelers in 2019, "Hollywood" Brown's similar skill set will be needed in Pittsburgh.
    21. Trayvon Mullen

      CB

      Clemson

      Mullen, a good value here, brings needed depth to the Seahawks' secondary, especially if Justin Coleman leaves as a free agent.
    22. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      Abram will fill in nicely for Eric Weddle if the team decides to part ways with the veteran this offseason.
    23. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      Dillard should remind fans of former Texans OT Duane Brown, a first-round pick 11 years ago.
    24. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      Free agency could leave the cupboard pretty bare for Oakland at cornerback, so Baker lands here to fill the void.
    25. Dexter Lawrence

      DL

      Clemson

      If Haloti Ngata, who's due to become a free agent, doesn't return, Lawrence would be a good replacement.
    26. Kelvin Harmon

      WR

      N.C. State

      The Colts need a big-bodied receiver to complement T.Y. Hilton.
    27. Nasir Adderley

      S

      Delaware

      Adderley's toughness and coverage skills are earning him first-round grades.
    28. Dalton Risner

      T

      Kansas St.

      New England exposed the right side of the Chargers' O-line in the Divisional Round. Risner can help keep Philip Rivers upright.
    29. Jachai Polite

      EDGE

      Florida

      Dee Ford is due to hit the market, so there might be a spot for Polite in Kansas City.
    30. Elijah Holyfield

      RB

      Georgia

      This guy is the Real Deal (a nickname that belongs to his famous father, Evander). New HC Matt LaFleur wants to run -- and Aaron Jones, the Packers' leading rusher last season, has had three knee injuries in two seasons.
    31. Jaylon Ferguson

      EDGE

      Louisiana Tech

      Ferguson would be a good fit if the Rams lose Dante Fowler Jr. in free agency.
    32. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      The Patriots address cornerback with Jason McCourty and Eric Rowe due to become free agents this offseason.
  3. Lance Zierlein

    Full Analysis

    January 29, 2019

    1. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      The Cardinals are moving back to a 3-4 front. Allen offers elite size and rush talent off the edge to fit perfectly opposite Chandler Jones.
    2. Rashan Gary

      DL

      Michigan

      Watching Allen come off the board at No. 1 is a curveball the 49ers will need to be prepared to deal with. Ohio State's Nick Bosa is more a polished and game-ready edge rusher than Gary, but San Francisco could opt for explosiveness over polish.
    3. Nick Bosa

      DL

      Ohio St.

      It would be hard to find a better fit for Gregg Williams' 4-3 defense than Bosa, who can rush from outside or inside and fortify the run defense.
    4. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      This is not just some click-bait pick. Murray doesn't have prototypical size. Yeah, I get it. However, when you look at his ability to make winning plays, Murray stands out way above the rest of this year's QB class. He can be weaved into the offense in 2019 and take over for Derek Carr in a year.
    5. Quinnen Williams

      DL

      Alabama

      With all the help Todd Bowles needs on defense, the Bucs will be able to go "best available" on that side of the ball here. Tampa adds an interior rusher to go along with Vita Vea and Gerald McCoy rather than reaching for an edge rusher.
    6. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      This wouldn't be my selection if I were making the pick, but the Giants need a young QB to develop behind Eli Manning and Jones' ties to Duke head coach David Cutcliffe -- Eli's college coach and mentor -- might be all the Giants need to push Jones over the top on their board as they try to make a smooth transition under center.
    7. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      There are still some very good non-QBs on the board here and the Jaguars might have to pass on them for a talented but inexperienced pocket passer.
    8. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      With Ezekiel Ansah likely to depart in free agency, Sweat could step right in at his spot. Sweat is a long-limbed, ascending rush talent who made himself money last week at the Senior Bowl.
    9. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      The former Ole Miss receiver offers a rare combination of size, speed and athletic ability. He could be Josh Allen's WR1 for years to come.
    10. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      Lock has the size and tools, but he needs to improve his consistency and accuracy. He could sit behind Case Keenum for a season or compete for the starting job right away.
    11. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      The Bengals drafted finesse offensive tackles in recent years and that didn't work out. This time, they add an old-school road grader with size, toughness and pass-pro ability.
    12. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      Simmons offers elite physical traits and potential. If he's still available here, Green Bay could be adding another Ndamukong Suh.
    13. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      If the Dolphins don't see a QB to their liking available when they're on the clock, they could add a long, press-man cornerback here and look for a young QB next year.
    14. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      Some see Williams as a tackle, some as a guard, and some as a center. I see him as a rock-solid technician who gets guys blocked and can become a plus starter right away.
    15. Jachai Polite

      EDGE

      Florida

      With the Redskins expecting Alex Smith to miss all of next season, they could opt to find a QB in free agency before bolstering their pass rush with this pick. Polite is slightly undersized, but he offers elite burst and above-average tools to help Washington attack the pocket.
    16. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      The Panthers have to shore up their left tackle spot and Dillard is one of the most athletic pass protectors in this class.
    17. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      Speed, speed, speed. White plays with good physicality and can really run. The Browns are looking for a linebacker with a nose for the football and that's White.
    18. Cody Ford

      T

      Oklahoma

      Ford has upside as a tackle, but his technique is still a work in progress. As a guard, he could step right into the starting lineup and likely upgrade the pass protection.
    19. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      Sure, the Titans need an edge defender, but they also need to inject a big-play talent into their stagnant offense and "Hollywood" Brown has juice for days.
    20. Mack Wilson

      LB

      Alabama

      Every-down inside 'backer who is one of the cleanest need/talent fits in this mock draft. Wilson plays like a Steeler with physicality and the ability to attack the pocket as a blitzer.
    21. Clelin Ferrell

      EDGE

      Clemson

      Ferrell fits the physical mold of what the Seahawks look for on the edge. He's still developing as a rusher, but he has traits and a terrific, winning pedigree.
    22. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      The best way to help a young quarterback (Lamar Jackson, in this case) is to take pressure off of him with a talented, every-down running back. Jacobs is the best in this draft at his position.
    23. Greg Little

      T

      Mississippi

      The Texans are desperate for a left tackle and a starting cornerback, but it's easier to find cornerbacks outside the first round than it is to find starting left tackles.
    24. Jaylon Ferguson

      EDGE

      Louisiana Tech

      Ferguson posted 39 sacks over the last three seasons at Louisiana Tech. I'm not saying he's Khalil Mack, but I am saying he's an upgrade over what Oakland has off the edge right now.
    25. Dexter Lawrence

      DL

      Clemson

      Haloti Ngata is due to hit the market this offseason, and will Timmy Jernigan be back in 2019? There could be an opening or two at DT, which would clear the way for Lawrence, who flashes the ability to manhandle opponents.
    26. Jerry Tillery

      DL

      Notre Dame

      Playing on the prevailing Colts theme of build the fronts and look for traits, I'll give them an inconsistent but talented interior rusher with elite physical dimensions.
    27. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      "Man, this Hockenson kid ... he's a dude!" At least that's how I imagine Jon Gruden talking about this talented combo tight end with tremendous upside.
    28. Ed Oliver

      DL

      Houston

      I have concerns that Oliver lacks prototype size, which is why I don't project him to go as high as many of my fellow draft analysts. However, his explosive get-off and disruptive qualities would fit nicely with the Chargers.
    29. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      Baker might be one of the safest cornerbacks in this draft. He's a bit lighter than what you'd like for a starting corner in the NFL, but he's tough, very sticky in man coverage and has the ability to make plays on the ball.
    30. Dalton Risner

      T

      Kansas St.

      Blue-collar lineman with excellent core strength, strong hands and position flexibility. Risner can play right tackle, guard, or center and he's a ready-made tough guy.
    31. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      Undersized ballhawk with outstanding short-area quickness and twitch to make a lot of plays on the football. Oh, he will hit you, too. Keep in mind: Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib are due to become free agents after the 2019 season.
    32. Christian Wilkins

      DL

      Clemson

      If you take a look at Belichick's draft history, you'll see he values offensive and defensive linemen in the first round. Wilkins is a big, powerful interior presence.
  4. Bucky Brooks

    Full Analysis

    January 25, 2019

    1. Nick Bosa

      DL

      Ohio St.

      The No. 1 overall pick is reserved for elite players with dynamic skills. Bosa fits the bill as a disruptive pass rusher with exceptional hands and technical skills.
    2. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      Allen would give the 49ers an explosive edge rusher with outstanding first-step quickness and burst.
    3. Quinnen Williams

      DL

      Alabama

      Taking the "BPA" (best player available) has worked out for the Jets under general manager Mike Maccagnan. Williams is a dominant force who would fit nicely beside Leonard Williams on the inside.
    4. Rashan Gary

      DL

      Michigan

      The Raiders desperately need a blue-chip defender on the front line to harass the prolific passers in the AFC West. Gary is a better athlete than playmaker at this point, but his arrival should boost a pass rush that netted a league-low 13 sacks in 2018.
    5. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      White's speed, athleticism and playmaking ability would add a dimension to a Bucs defense that struggled to defend the run and pass over the middle.
    6. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      It's time for the Giants to finally address their QB situation after watching Eli Manning's limitations stifle an offense loaded with playmakers.
    7. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      The Jaguars pulled the plug on Blake Bortles as their QB1 in November, and it's time to go in a different direction at the position. Lock is an A+ talent with a high ceiling in the right environment.
    8. Clelin Ferrell

      EDGE

      Clemson

      Coach Matt Patricia needs a dynamic edge rusher to wreak havoc off the edge in a division loaded with premier quarterbacks.
    9. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      Head coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane must upgrade the supporting cast around Josh Allen to help their young franchise quarterback thrive. Taylor would help an offensive line that surrendered 41 sacks in 2018.
    10. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      New head coach Vic Fangio will focus his efforts on fixing a defense that was a mild disappointment in 2018. Williams is a plug-and-play corner with the ball skills and instincts to emerge as a ballhawk early in his career.
    11. Cody Ford

      T

      Oklahoma

      If Zac Taylor takes over as the team's head coach -- my colleague Ian Rapoport reported he's the favorite for the job -- the Bengals could go all in on re-tooling their offense on draft day. Ford would give the Bengals a sturdy blocker to add to a front line that needs more physicality and toughness.
    12. Jachai Polite

      EDGE

      Florida

      The gradual decline of Clay Matthews as a pass rusher could prompt the Packers to add an explosive athlete to the lineup. Polite isn't a polished rusher at this point, but his first-step quickness and closing burst could allow him to be a difference-maker as a rookie.
    13. Jaylon Ferguson

      EDGE

      Louisiana Tech

      The FBS all-time sack leader (45) would fit nicely as a productive pass rusher with a variety of moves at his disposal.
    14. Ed Oliver

      DL

      Houston

      The Houston standout is the urgent athlete Dan Quinn covets on his defense. Despite missing some time in his final collegiate season due to injury, Oliver's disruptive potential makes him a worthy possibility for this pick.
    15. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      The uncertainty surrounding Alex Smith and his return from injury could force the Redskins to jump into the quarterback market on draft day. Jones is a big, athletic playmaker with enough arm strength and mobility to make plays inside and outside of the pocket.
    16. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      The Panthers need to find a young edge defender, with Julius Peppers -- who recently turned 39 -- due to become a free agent. Sweat is an explosive athlete with the speed and quickness to consistently record 10-plus sacks in the NFL.
    17. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      GM John Dorsey is committed to improving the cast around Baker Mayfield to help the young QB1 evolve as a playmaker. Williams is a steady player capable of snuffing out pass rushers on the edge and burying defenders in the run game.
    18. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      After watching Kirk Cousins take a beating in 2018, the Vikings will make upgrading the offensive line a top priority. Dillard is arguably the most polished pass protector in the draft, with superb footwork and technique defining his game.
    19. Christian Wilkins

      DL

      Clemson

      Mike Vrabel needs another playmaker up front to help the Titans generate more sacks and pressures.
    20. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      GM Kevin Colbert and coach Mike Tomlin must continue to throw resources at the secondary to shore up a unit that fails to create turnovers. Murphy is a five-star cover corner with outstanding ball skills and tackling ability.
    21. Deionte Thompson

      S

      Alabama

      With Earl Thomas expected to depart as a free agent, the Seahawks could look to bolster the secondary with a hard-hitting safety who offers range, instincts and thump.
    22. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      The Ravens place their focus on building the offense around Lamar Jackson, adding an explosive playmaker on the perimeter.
    23. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      The Texans need to fix their offensive line -- but in the meantime, adding a dynamic weapon at TE will only help Deshaun Watson continue to grow as a QB1.
    24. Kelvin Harmon

      WR

      N.C. State

      Jon Gruden needs to find a new No. 1 receiver after swapping Amari Cooper for a first-round pick at midseason. Harmon is a big, athletic pass catcher with big-play potential.
    25. Dexter Lawrence

      DL

      Clemson

      The Eagles have joined the ranks of the NFL elite by investing heavily in the offensive and defensive lines. Lawrence is a rugged nose tackle with the size and strength to erase runs between the guards while also collapsing the pocket with bull rushes on passing downs.
    26. N'Keal Harry

      WR

      Arizona State

      The big-bodied pass catcher from Arizona State would be an ideal fit as a WR2 opposite T.Y. Hilton.
    27. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      Adding another disruptive defender is on the to-do list for the Raiders after the Khalil Mack trade. Simmons is a rock-solid defensive tackle with excellent run-stopping ability.
    28. Dre'Mont Jones

      DL

      Ohio St.

      Beefing up the interior is a priority for the Bolts, with age and free agency creeping up on their starters at the position. Jones has the size and athleticism to create chaos in the middle.
    29. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      The Chiefs desperately need to add a big cover corner to match up with the dynamic WRs who dominate the AFC West.
    30. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      New head coach Matt LaFleur could begin the Packers' offensive makeover by adding a true "Y" to the lineup to control the middle of the field in the passing game and seal the edges on running plays.
    31. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      Despite making it to Super Bowl LIII, the Rams could still use some reinforcements at linebacker. Bush is a little undersized, but he's a sideline-to-sideline playmaker with outstanding instincts and a nose for the ball.
    32. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Tom Brady can't play forever. Murray would serve as an apprentice before taking over as a dynamic QB1 for the Patriots after Brady decides to step away from the game.

    Full Analysis

    January 23, 2019

    1. Nick Bosa

      DL

      Ohio St.

      Bosa is a polished pass rusher and he'll excel opposite Chandler Jones.
    2. Rashan Gary

      DL

      Michigan

      Gary has the size of a defensive tackle but the skill set to play on the edge. He'll give the 49ers one of the best young D-lines in the NFL.
    3. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      The Jets need to address the O-line, but Allen will be too tempting to pass up. He's a bendy edge rusher with excellent production.
    4. Quinnen Williams

      DL

      Alabama

      The Raiders are desperate for pass rushers. Williams offers tremendous upside in that department and dominates against the run.
    5. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      The Bucs didn't see any return on their investment in Ronald Jones, a second-round pick last year. Jacobs is a dynamic player with ideal toughness.
    6. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      Haskins lacks the ideal mobility, but he's a pure pocket passer with excellent arm strength and accuracy.
    7. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      I wouldn't be surprised if Simmons were to go earlier than this spot. Teams are buzzing about his talent.
    8. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      This might be a little early for Hockenson, but he fits the physical identity the Lions have been attempting to build.
    9. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      Taylor could start at right tackle or either of the guard spots. He is a powerful run blocker with the agility to hold up in pass protection.
    10. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      White is the ideal modern linebacker. He can run, cover and blitz.
    11. Cody Ford

      T

      Oklahoma

      The Bengals need to upgrade their offensive line, and Ford offers the flexibility to play inside or outside.
    12. Clelin Ferrell

      EDGE

      Clemson

      Ferrell is an overachiever with excellent production and effort. The Packers need to add some punch to their edge rush.
    13. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      The Dolphins have a bunch of needs to fill and could go in myriad directions. However, finding the quarterback of the future is right at the top of the list.
    14. Ed Oliver

      DL

      Houston

      Oliver is a perfect fit in this scheme and he'd be a terror in the NFC South.
    15. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      The Redskins need to sort out the QB situation following Alex Smith's injury. If they address that need in free agency, Brown will be a tempting option with this pick.
    16. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      Williams' play was up and down in the fall, but the Panthers hit on an LSU cornerback in last year's draft (Donte Jackson) and they might double down this spring.
    17. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      I believe Dillard is the top left tackle prospect in the draft and his pass-protecting prowess is just what Baker Mayfield needs.
    18. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      Williams is a solid offensive tackle prospect, but I believe he has All-Pro potential at guard. The Vikings need to address the O-line this offseason.
    19. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      Metcalf has a rare blend of size and speed. He'd be the perfect partner for Corey Davis.
    20. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      Bush has outstanding play speed and he fills a need for the Steelers' defense.
    21. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      The Seahawks need to find a complementary pass rusher for Frank Clark, whom I expect to be back in Seattle next season even though he's due to become a free agent this offseason. Sweat has outstanding length, burst and production.
    22. Nasir Adderley

      S

      Delaware

      Adderley is a perfect fit to take over for Eric Weddle, whether that transition takes place this year or next year. Weddle has one year left on his contract and recently said he'll either play for the Ravens in 2019 or retire if the team decides to move on without him. Adderley offers a similar skill set and toughness.
    23. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      Baker is a competitive cornerback with the versatility to fit in any scheme.
    24. Jaylon Ferguson

      EDGE

      Louisiana Tech

      Ferguson has some stiffness, but his length, power and production will be very appealing to a team in need of edge rushers.
    25. Christian Wilkins

      DL

      Clemson

      This would be the steal of the draft for the Eagles. Wilkins is a top-10 talent
    26. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      Abram is one of my favorite players in the draft. He fits what the Colts are building on defense.
    27. Trayvon Mullen

      CB

      Clemson

      It would be a surprise if the Raiders used all three of their first-round picks on defensive players, but it might be wise to fix one side of the ball before addressing the other.
    28. Mack Wilson

      LB

      Alabama

      The Chargers need to get better at the linebacker position and Wilson is a true three-down player.
    29. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      The Chiefs are set on offense, but they need to add some playmakers to the back end of their defense.
    30. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      Fant is an athletic freak and would be a nice complement to the young WR corps in Green Bay. Jimmy Graham isn't the long-term answer at the position.
    31. Dexter Lawrence

      DL

      Clemson

      The Rams might need someone to replace Ndamukong Suh, who's due to become a free agent this offseason. Lawrence has a very similar skill set and playing style.
    32. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Murray is the ultimate wild card in this draft. The Patriots need to find the heir apparent to Tom Brady and Murray could contribute while Brady is still playing.
