The small-school standout is a prototypical dual-threat quarterback with the A-plus arm talent and athleticism to thrive in Hue Jackson's offense.

The versatile defender is the perfect replacement for Eric Weddle in the middle of the Chargers' secondary.

The energetic pass rusher with versatile skills is a nice fit in Rod Marinelli's aggressive defense.

The Jaguars have significantly upgraded the defense with their free-agent moves, but the addition of a sideline-to-sideline menace would help Gus Bradley's troops challenge for the AFC South title.

The freakishly athletic defender can play multiple spots in the Ravens' hybrid scheme.

John Fox can't resist adding a feisty cover corner with sound technical skills and a high football IQ.

The penetrating defensive tackle would give the Saints an active three-technique to place alongside Cameron Jordan on the line.

Adding a classic WR1 is one of the Rams' priorities on draft day.

Floyd's versatility as a second-level defender (pass rusher/run-and-chase playmaker) could make him an enticing option for the Falcons.

Protecting Andrew Luck is the Colts' top priority after watching the team fail to make the playoffs without their leader under center.

Rex Ryan builds his defense around the big bodies in the trenches. Reed is a destructive force with the size, athleticism and energy to wreak havoc from multiple spots on the interior.

Finding a replacement for the aging D'Brickashaw Ferguson should be a priority for the Jets.

Smith's injury prognosis will ultimately determine whether he is a viable first-round pick, but Scot McCloughan can't resist taking a good player with exceptional instincts and awareness.

Mike Zimmer would love to add another playmaking linebacker to the mix to put the finishing touches on a dominant defensive unit.

Jackson fits the prototype (long and athletic) of the cornerbacks the Steelers typically covet.
