Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

Detroit adds an Oregon star for the second consecutive year. Romeo Okwara and Thibodeaux is an exciting pairing in the Motor City.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jets use the first of two first-round picks on LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. New York has upgraded the offensive line and can now turn attention to other premier positions.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 350 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

Cam Robinson is scheduled to hit free agency. Even if he returns, Evan Neal and Robinson each has the flexibility to play guard.

Purdue

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Houston goes back to the Big Ten for an edge rusher. There is a lot for the Texans to sort out within the next six months and their draft outlook will look a lot different.

Michigan

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

3rd

New York is testing out Azeez Ojulari and Quincy Roche this season but there are still concerns about the pass rush moving forward. Aidan Hutchinson would alleviate those concerns.

NC State

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

Ikem Ekwonu is a polished run blocker that continues to improve in pass protection. New York selects their third first-round offensive lineman in as many years.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 325 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

3rd

If Dave Gettleman is still around, he is almost certain to draft an interior offensive lineman in the first round. He is committed to Daniel Jones working and the offensive line has been part of his downfall.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 219 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

Kyle Hamilton will thrive in Philadelphia’s zone scheme playing downhill and making plays in coverage or in the box.

Ole Miss

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

Atlanta adds a franchise quarterback to eventually replace Matt Ryan. Ryan’s presence allows for a natural transition of power when Corral is ready. The Falcons are already equipped with Kyle Pitts and Calvin Ridley.

Liberty

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Willis has room for growth as a passer. In an ideal world, he would sit for a year and learn the position but Washington may not have any other option.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

I am lacking creativity at this point because I tend to always give the Eagles Kyle Hamilton and Booth. Both thrive in heavy zone concepts and that could be exciting to watch them develop with Darius Slay.

Mississippi State

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

29th

POSITION RNK

5th

Carolina is obviously going to make a change at quarterback this offseason so this pick may be earmarked for a quarterback or to be used in a trade for a veteran. In the meantime, they also need to upgrade the protection.

Pittsburgh

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 220 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

There are going to be teams in the market for Aaron Rodgers and, presumably, Deshaun Watson. Denver is expected to be one of those teams. Kenny Pickett is a big, strong-armed quarterback with enough mobility to survive in the NFL.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

6th

Miami has been a disappointment this season. They could be a team in transition this offseason. Leal is a cornerstone piece capable of playing on the edge or condense inside.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 192 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

Wilson is a dynamic wide receiver and the first at his position off the board. Las Vegas needs help at the position following the tragic Henry Ruggs situation.

Kentucky

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 345 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

1st

After using two picks on defense, Philadelphia starts adding some offensive foundational pieces in the event that they move forward with Jalen Hurts, which it appears they will.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Cleveland has invested a lot of money into the offensive guards and tackles. Center is one position where they could save towards the salary cap and upgrade. J.C. Tretter has been solid this year but Linderbaum would thrive in a wide zone scheme.

Northern Iowa

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 321 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

38th

POSITION RNK

8th

Pittsburgh invested in the running back position before the offensive line. They have had elite linemen like David DeCastro, Maurkice Pouncey and Alejandro Villaneuva in the past. It would benefit them to get back to that point.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 189 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

6th

Williams is a really fluid wide receiver that can bridge the gap from Michael Thomas to the future. New Orleans has to find a long-term option at quarterback next.

USC

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 250 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Everson Griffen situation is heartbreaking but it only magnified Minnesota’s immediate need at edge rusher. Drake Jackson is the best prospect at the position on the board.

Cincinnati

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Buffalo adds Gardner to pair with Tre’Davious White. The Bills defense has improved this season but the addition of Gardner leads to one less vulnerability.

Georgia

• Soph

• 6’6″

/ 330 lbs

Los Angeles has consistently been gashed on the ground this season. Jordan Davis can not only take up space in the middle but apply pressure in pass rushing situations.

Washington

• Soph

• 5’11”

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

50th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Cincinnati upgrades its secondary with the selection of McDuffie. The Bengals have made strides this season but they need to keep adding blue chip players.

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Detroit simply needs to upgrade the talent at wide receiver and Olave is the best option to pair with Amon-Ra St. Brown. He is a polished route runner with sure hands.

Arkansas

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

4th

The idea of tossing Burks into an offense with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce is tantalizing. Kansas City has explored adding another wide receiver and even signed Josh Gordon but that experiment has not played out well.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

3rd

New England has leaned into its identity as a physical team that is just going to blow up zone blocking schemes. Dean is a missile that will eliminate the pullers from the equation.

Utah

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 235 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

20th

POSITION RNK

1st

Micah Parsons should remain at edge rusher long-term, which means the team needs help at linebacker again. Devin Lloyd is a player that reminds me a bit of Fred Warner in the way that he is able to get off blocks.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 196 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

4th

Spin the wheel of positions and choose one for Tampa Bay. In this thought exercise, they take the Gator from Gainesville.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

45th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Petit-Frere has all of the physical attributes to be successful but there is a lot to clean up in his game. Baltimore has done a good job with its offensive line over the years.

USC

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 210 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

5th

Green Bay does not take wide receivers in the first round but they may have to depending on how things play out with impending free agent Davante Adams.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

5th

Tennessee’s defensive line has allowed that unit to play much better but they still need help at cornerback. Roger McCreary is a senior that just improves each week.

Georgia

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

1st

From a pure talent perspective, Kendrick is one of the best cornerback prospects in the draft. He has some red flags but Arizona has gone all in on its title hopes this year so it is reasonable to think that strategy might continue.
