NFL.com gathered writers and broadcasters from around the country to play GM for the teams they cover on a daily basis. Watch the video to unveil their full analysis and pick.
This is the first in a series of four that will be unveiled in the next two weeks. Picks No. 9-16 will be released on Thursday, April 9.
1. DETROIT LIONS
On the beat: Tom Kowalski, Mlive.com
Analysis: "The idea is that when you're strong in the trenches you're more consistent from week to week, and that's what head coach Jim Schwartz really wants."
2. ST. LOUIS RAMS
On the beat: Howard Balzer, The Sports Xchange
3. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
On the beat: Al Wallace, WDAF-TV
Analysis: "(The Chiefs) need a lot of help in a lot of places ... defensive line, offensive line, wide receiver -- perhaps someone who can stretch the field -- and certainly at linebacker."
4. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
Analysis: "(The Seahawks) went into this offseason thinking flexibility, give themselves the opportunity to pick any number of players, but in free agency they would fill the number of holes they've been looking to fill."
5. CLEVELAND BROWNS
On the beat: Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Analysis: "(The Browns) absolutely, desperately need a pass rusher. They finished second to last in the NFL last season with 17 sacks."
6. CINCINNATI BENGALS
On the beat: Wayne Box Miller, Cincinnati Herald
Analysis: "What I'm hearing is that (the Bengals) are addressing, as they always do, athleticism, competition."
7. OAKLAND RAIDERS
Analysis: "This team's been built around quarterback JaMarcus Russell, and the one thing he's lacking is a tag-team partner in the vertical passing game."
8. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
On the beat: Tony Boselli, WJXL Radio host
