ROUND 1

1. Tampa Bay: Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State

Comment: The Bucs land their franchise quarterback.

2. Tennessee: Marcus Mariota, QB, Tennessee

Comment: I think Mariota will get picked here, but I'm not sure which team will be making the selection.

3. Jacksonville: Dante Fowler, Jr., OLB, Florida

Comment: Fowler would upgrade the edge rush in Jacksonville.

4. Oakland: Leonard Williams, DT, USC

Comment: Williams and Khalil Mack would be a dynamic combination.

5. Washington: Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson

6. New York Jets: Bud Dupree, OLB, Kentucky

Comment: Dupree is very raw, but he has double-digit sack potential.

7. Chicago: Danny Shelton, NT, Washington

Comment: Taking the top receiver is tempting, but the Bears address their defensive front.

8. Atlanta: Shane Ray, OLB, Missouri

Comment: The Falcons' No. 1 priority is upgrading the pass rush.

9. New York Giants: Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama

Comment: This isn't a big need, but Cooper might be too tempting to pass up here.

10. St. Louis: Brandon Scherff, G, Iowa

Comment: The Rams take the most physical blocker for the second year in a row.

11. Minnesota: Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

Comment: This could be a cornerback, but adding another weapon for Teddy Bridgewater isn't a bad way to go.

12. Cleveland: DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville

Comment: Parker would give the Browns a true No. 1 wideout.

13. New Orleans: La'el Collins, OL, LSU

Comment: Collins would be a great replacement for Ben Grubbs.

14. Miami: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State

Comment: Waynes would fit nicely with the other new additions in Miami.

17. San Diego: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia

Comment: The Chargers can't afford to pass on the top running back in the draft.

18. Kansas City: Malcom Brown, DT, Texas

20. Philadelphia: Breshad Perriman, WR, UCF

Comment: Perriman is one of the most polarizing players in the draft.

21. Cincinnati: Landon Collins, SS, Alabama

Comment: Collins has the versatility to play safety as well as nickel linebacker.

22. Pittsburgh: Byron Jones, CB, UConn

Comment: The Steelers need to upgrade their secondary, and Jones is much more than a workout wonder.

Comment: Humphries is an excellent athlete and has the ability to be a fixture at left tackle for the Lions.

24. Arizona: Randy Gregory, OLB, Nebraska

Commment: Gregory slides because of off-field concerns, but he might be too tempting for the Cardinals to pass up.

25. Carolina: Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford

Comment: The Panthers are desperate for O-line help.

26. Baltimore: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin

Comment: Gordon could put up monster numbers behind the Ravens' offensive line.

29. Indianapolis: Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami (Fla.)

Comment: Flowers can come in and start right away at right tackle.

30. Green Bay: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington

31. New Orleans: Phillip Dorsett, WR, Miami

Comment: I'd love to see what Sean Payton could do with Dorsett and Brandin Cooks.

32. New England: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
