  1. Cleveland Browns: Antonio Garcia, OT, Troy
    The Browns lost Alex Mack and Mitchell Schwartz last offseason, and they'll need to replace both this offseason. They can address the right tackle spot with this selection by taking the rising Antonio Garcia.

  2. San Francisco 49ers: John Ross, WR, Washington
    I don't understand why the 49ers avoided addressing the receiver position until late in the 2016 NFL Draft. How did they not realize that they have such a huge need in that area? Perhaps the new front office will make amends for this mistake.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: David Njoku, TE, Miami
    The Jaguars just traded Julius Thomas to the Dolphins, so perhaps they'll use a second-day selection on a tight end who isn't constantly injured and lethargic.

    Pick change; previously Dan Feeney, G

  4. Chicago Bears: Jalen Tabor, CB, Florida
    The Bears have some promising young talent at cornerback, but they still need help at the position, and I can't imagine them passing on a great value like Jalen Tabor in the second round.

  5. Los Angeles Rams: Curtis Samuel, WR, Ohio State
    The Rams keep waiting for Brian Quick to do something, but it's not happening. They need to find another weapon for Jared Goof. People in Los Angeles currently don't care about the Rams, but perhaps there will be interest from three or four more people if the team selects a dynamic play-maker like Curtis Samuel.

  6. Los Angeles Chargers: T.J. Watt, LB, Wisconsin
    The Chargers have mostly been using Joey Bosa on the defensive line, so they could stand to find another outside linebacker to play across from Melvin Ingram. T.J. Watt, the younger brother of J.J. Watt, could be chosen in the first round, so he provides good value here.

  7. New York Jets: Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU
    It's no secret that the Jets need help at cornerback. Darrelle Revis has been in major decline, and he was considered a candidate for release even before his street fight. This pick may not provide the same sort of sonic boom that a quarterback selection would provide, but New York would almost certainly jump at the opportunity to grab a corner who could easily be chosen in the first round.

    Pick change; previously Charles Harris, DE/OLB

  8. Carolina Panthers: Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee
    Jonathan Stewart is still a quality runner, but he turns 30 this March, so Carolina might envision someone like Alvin Kamara as Cam Newton's backfield partner for the next 8-10 years.

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Dawuane Smoot, DE/OLB, Illinois
    The Bengals don't have a very good edge rush, as Carlos Dunlap is the only defensive end capable of putting consistent heat on opposing quarterbacks. Michael Johnson is a bust signing and must be upgraded.

  10. New Orleans Saints: Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State
    Two of the Saints' early-round picks are expected to be used on a pass-rusher and a cornerback. Here's an upgrade for the latter position, as the Saints pick up a strong value in Gareon Conley at this juncture.

  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina
    After watching Nelson Agholor drop everything in sight, the Eagles might want to target a receiver with great hands. That would be Zay Jones, who dominated the Senior Bowl.

    Pick change; previously Jourdan Lewis, CB

  12. Buffalo Bills: Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan
    The Bills will likely select a cornerback early in the 2017 NFL Draft unless they pick up someone in free agency. Stephon Gilmore struggled this past season, and he happens to be a free agent anyway.

    Pick change; previously Zay Jones, WR

  13. Arizona Cardinals: Chris Wormley, DE/DT, Michigan
    Calais Campbell will be a 31-year-old free agent entering next offseason. It goes without saying that the Cardinals will have to replace him if he leaves.

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Taylor Moton, OT, Western Michigan
    I'm sure that if the Vikings had the cap space, they would've used this pick to trade for Joe Thomas. Alas, they do not, so they can try to remedy their awful tackle situation by picking one at this juncture.

  15. Baltimore Ravens: Dan Feeney, G, Indiana
    The Ravens really missed Kelechi Osemele this season, as his absence bogged down the offense. It'll be difficult to replace the All-Pro guard, unless Baltimore can land a talented prospect like Dan Feeney in the second round. Giving the Ravens neighborly advice about taking Feeney isn't necessary, as Ozzie Newsome is smart enough to pull the trigger.

    Pick change; previously Malachi Dupre, WR

  16. Indianapolis Colts: Haason Reddick, DE/OLB, Temple
    Haason Reddick's draft stock has been rising, and I've seen him pop up in some first rounds of mock drafts. I wouldn't go that far yet, but I'd consider slotting him into the first frame if he performs extremely well at the combine. There's no doubt that Reddick would improve Indianapolis' poor pass rush.

    Pick change; previously Tim Williams, DE/OLB

  17. Washington Redskins: Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut
    As mentioned in the first round, the Redskins need help at defensive end, inside linebacker and safety to shore up the middle of their defense. Obi Melifonwu, who had a terrific Senior Bowl, seems like the type of prospect the Redskins love.

  18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC
    The Buccaneers need a second receiver across from Mike Evans, as Vincent Jackson's playing days are almost over. JuJu Smith-Schuster provides solid value for Tampa in the middle of the second frame.

    Pick change; previously DeMarcus Walker, DE

  19. Denver Broncos: Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss
    It's safe to say that the Dolphins haven't exactly gotten what they had expected out of Jordan Cameron, though not all of that is his fault, given his concussion issues. Here's a much-needed upgrade at tight end.

  20. Cleveland Browns: Desmond King, S/CB, Iowa
    The Browns fixed some of their issues on defense in the first round by selecting an edge rusher and a cornerback. Here's something else for the secondary, as the Browns have some of the worst safeties in the NFL, so they need to make some upgrades.

    Pick change; previously Joshua Dobbs, QB

  21. Detroit Lions: Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida
    DeAndre Levy has played in only six games the past two seasons, and the Lions would need an upgrade at linebacker even if he were healthy most of the time. I'd expect an early pick to be used on the position fairly early in the 2017 NFL Draft.

  22. Miami Dolphins: Forrest Lamp, G/OT, Western Kentucky
    The Dolphins traded Branden Albert to the Jaguars, as they plan on moving last year's first-rounder, Laremy Tunsil, to left tackle. This, however, has opened a big need at guard.

    Pick change; previously Gerald Everett, TE

  23. New York Giants: Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
    The Giants spent their first-round pick on Deshaun Watson, so here's a quality blocker for their new quarterback. New York had awful play from its tackles this season, but adding a blind-side protector and moving Ereck Flowers to the right side should work.

  24. Oakland Raiders: D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texas
    Latavius Murray said he wants to re-sign with the Raiders, but I'm not sure Oakland will want him back. The coaching staff never wanted to have Murray handle the workload, so maybe the front office will spend an early draft choice on a runner they're more confident in.

  25. Houston Texans: Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama
    The Texans desperately need a receiving threat at tight end, and Gerald Everett is one of many talented tight ends in this draft class. Houston would love Forrest Lamp falling to them toward the end of the second frame.

    Pick change; previously Nathan Peterman, QB

  26. Seattle Seahawks: Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson
    Prior to the 2016 NFL Draft, one team thought the Seahawks were going to select Robert Nkemdiche. Seattle could use another interior pass-rusher to help the secondary out if there are injuries once again.

  27. Kansas City Chiefs: Tim Williams, DE/OLB, Alabama
    With Tamba Hali nearing retirement and Dee Ford hitting free agency soon, the Chiefs could be in the market for a new edge rusher. Tim Williams has Randy Gregory-type off-the-field concerns, but Andy Reid has taken chances on troubled players.

    Pick change; previously Montravius Adams, DE/DT

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU
    Dallas is almost certainly not going to retain Terrance Williams, while Dez Bryant has proven to be injury-prone and unreliable. The Cowboys need a strong No. 2 receiver.

    Pick change; previously JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR

  29. Green Bay Packers: Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming
    Ty Montgomery looked awesome at running back in a couple of games, but how sustainable is that? And will Eddie Lacy continue to gain weight? There are lots of questions at running back for the Packers, who can solve them by selecting a talented player like Brian Hill.

  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State
    Martavis Bryant has an expiring contract after 2017, and Pittsburgh may decide that it can't rely on him. Ben Roethlisberger had no downfield options outside of Antonio Brown in his playoff loss to the Patriots.

    Pick change; previously Tre'Davious White, CB

  31. Atlanta Falcons: Dion Dawkins, G/OT, Temple
    The Falcons could stand to upgrade Chris Chester, the one liability that they currently possess on their offensive line.

    Pick change; previously Forrest Lamp, G

  32. New England Patriots: Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, Alabama
    The Patriots cut Dominique Easley last offseason, but never found a replacement for him. They can do that in the early stages of the 2017 NFL Draft.
