Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

Detroit is not going to take a safety or offensive tackle, so that leaves the team with cornerback or defensive line. Thibodeaux is a twitchy player who is also wiry strong. Romeo Okwara and Thibodeaux is a fine pairing in the Motor City.

LSU

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

Houston keeps Stingley in the south with the No. 2 overall pick. It is a short drive from Baton Rouge and likely the start of a busy offseason for the Texans.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 350 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

Some of the top prospects in this class are edge rushers and Jacksonville has taken edge rushers in two recent draft classes. It could still be argued that the Jaguars need one of those players, but they have bigger fish to fry. They also addressed safety and cornerback last offseason. It all leads back to Neal, who has the flexibility of playing with or without Cam Robinson.

NC State

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

General manager Joe Douglas believes in building through the trenches, so he attacks each side of the ball. Mekhi Becton, Alijah Vera-Tucker and Ekwonu is a sturdy and physically imposing group.

Michigan

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Jets pair Hutchinson with Carl Lawson. The Wolverine has taken the college football landscape by storm. He has registered 13 sacks and delivered some huge moments against the likes of Ohio State.

Purdue

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

2nd

New York is going to target each side of the ball with its first-round picks. With the first of those picks, the Giants add Karlaftis to bolster the pass rush. He is a mature, physical prospect who has been contending against double teams for most of his time in the Big Ten.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Naturally, everyone is putting themselves in the shoes of Dave Gettleman, but it has already been reported that Gettleman may not be making these picks. Whether or not Gettleman is there is irrelevant in this case, as Linderbaum is a special talent who would give New York more than it was hoping when it selected Weston Richburg years earlier.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 219 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

Philadelphia’s zone scheme is a perfect marriage with Hamilton’s skillset. He is a long athlete who is capable of making plays in coverage or making ball carriers feel his pain playing downhill.

Utah

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 235 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

20th

POSITION RNK

1st

Philadelphia fans told me last year that the team does not take linebackers in the first round, and that is likely the problem. The Eagles have reached the tipping point with the linebacker play and want some stability. Lloyd is a player who I have been comparing to Fred Warner for months because of his ability to get off blocks. He has been improving in pass coverage.

Ole Miss

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

Matt Rhule has taken a chance on Teddy Bridgewater, Sam Darnold and now Cam Newton. None of those are long-term fits, so the Panthers once again find themselves in the quarterback market. Corral has shown improved decision-making and accuracy at all three levels.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 325 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

3rd

I still believe in Green’s value as an interior offensive lineman, but his versatility makes him even more valuable. Atlanta plugs him into an offensive line that has really struggled this year. The Falcons still have questions on defense and the long-term outlook at quarterback.

Cincinnati

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Minnesota went on a stretch where it brought in a lot of cornerbacks over a few draft classes but that did not work out. Gardner could be the answer to the question the Vikings have faced since the decline of Xavier Rhodes.

Pittsburgh

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 220 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

It feels like this season was always about clearing salary cap space and putting the team in position to make a run at acquiring a quarterback next offseason. I never imagined Sean Payton was truly excited about the possibility of starting Jameis Winston and/or Taysom Hill. Pickett is a smart player who Payton could trust. Plus, traditionalists would not have to worry about Pickett’s sub nine-inch hands consistently playing in inclement weather.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Philadelphia continues a defensive overhaul with the selection of Booth. The Eagles walk away with Kyle Hamilton, Devin Lloyd and Booth in the first round. Who, in the city of Brotherly Love, would not sign up for that outcome? The only concern is that you’re placing a lot of faith in the healthy return of both lines.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 192 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

Last week’s game against Baltimore exposed the issues of not having a wide receiver capable of causing strain on the defense. The Ravens stacked the box and made life difficult on Nick Chubb knowing they could lock down Cleveland’s wide receivers in single coverage. Wilson has sensational body control and some flash.

Mississippi State

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

29th

POSITION RNK

5th

Pittsburgh made the decision to take the running back before the offensive line last year. It fixes an ongoing problem by heavily investing at offensive tackle. The Steelers still need to find a solution at quarterback, but that will have to come in a later round or free agency/via trade.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Dean is a block buster. He plays the game with reckless abandon and no fear for his own body. His athleticism is off the charts, and that will pair nicely with Bradley Chubb and Jonathon Cooper moving forward.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 189 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

6th

Williams is the college football darling at wide receiver this year. He is such a smooth player. DeSean Jackson has been able to give the Raiders moments, but that is not long-term sustainability. The team still needs answers outside of Darren Waller.

Liberty

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Washington will spend the rest of the season determining whether or not Taylor Heinicke is a long-term option. He may be able to do enough to convince the franchise that he is worth giving the keys to for a year. In that scenario, it would be able to divert its assets elsewhere.

Georgia

• Soph

• 6’6″

/ 330 lbs

Los Angeles’ issues have become evident in recent weeks. It cannot stop the run, and the offense is underwhelming relative to its vertical potential. Davis is a big man who will occasionally push the pocket in addition to shutting down the run game.

Washington

• Soph

• 5’11”

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

50th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Cornerback may seem unorthodox considering the amount of money and the investment of a first-round pick Miami has already made, but the team does not have a player who ranks higher than No. 50 at that position, according to PFF. It could be an opportunity for the Dolphins to save some money and start from scratch.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

1st

Leal is not going to be every team’s cup of tea, nor will he be a fit for everyone. Buffalo made a substantial investment at edge rusher over the last two years, and now it addresses the interior defensive line. Leal is a player who can apply pressure up the middle and create some one-on-one opportunities for those edge rushers.

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Detroit is not one wide receiver away from contention, but it is a huge position of need. The current group is not instilling fear in anyone, and Olave is too good a value to pass up at this point in the first round.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

5th

McCreary is not flashy. He is just a sound player who gets the job done, and that seems to be how Cincinnati’s organization likes it. The Bengals have taken steps on defense, but adding some young pieces while slowly saving salary cap space to afford Joe Burrow’s extension in a few years will be important.

Georgia

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

1st

Dallas has invested in the cornerback position with a few second-round picks — Trevon Diggs and Kelvin Joseph — but that is still a position of need. If Joseph ever gets meaningful reps and shows he can be a long-term option, then we will back off of this.

Arkansas

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

4th

Burks has the size and versatility to play in the slot or wide. His skillset, alongside Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, would be scary for opposing defenses. Kansas City has been searching for a more stable option at the position and Burks can be the answer.

USC

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 210 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

5th

Tennessee and Julio Jones could realistically part ways after the season, and that would leave the Titans in a similar position as last season — without a running mate for A.J. Brown. London is a jump-ball specialist who can give the team more size at the position while saving some money.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 196 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

4th

Whether through inconsistencies or injury, Tampa Bay has had a difficult time finding steady play on the boundary. Elam is a big-bodied cornerback who can bridge the gap.

Penn State

• Sr

• 5’11”

/ 184 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Dotson is a great fit for New England because he can play underneath and create yards after the catch, or he can carry the route up the field for a deep shot. His speed and versatility will keep defenses honest in an otherwise dunk-and-run offense.

USC

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 250 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

4th

Rashan Gary has certainly improved from his days in Ann Arbor, but Green Bay will likely move on from one or both of Za’Darius and Preston Smith, which creates an opportunity for Jackson.

Northern Iowa

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 321 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

38th

POSITION RNK

8th

Baltimore needs to upgrade the offensive line this offseason and Penning represents good value at this stage of the first round.

Kentucky

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 345 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

1st

Darian Kinnard specializes in run blocking but has steadily made improvements in pass protection. Arizona adds a long-term building block to the offensive line.
