Leave a comment below and let me know who you want your team to take! *Updated 4/27/15 Round 2 Added*
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston, QB
This pick has begun to solidify over the past few weeks, and it seems Winston has stepped ahead of Marcus Mariota. Regardless of the player, the Bucs need a quarterback, and Winston has proven talent, but needs to keep his head on straight.
Tennessee Titans: Marcus Mariota, QB
As the draft gets closer it seems to becoming more clear that the Titans will take Marcus Mariota or at least trade the pick. If the Titans have done a nice job improving their defensive line with re-signing Derrick Morgan and signing Brian Orakpo so Leonard Williams doesn’t fill a huge need anymore. Mariota will either be a Titan or this pick could be traded.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Vic Beasley, Edge
I’ve had Fowler here for quite some time, but Beasley offers a lot more potential. Beasley basically destroyed the combine, and tested quite a bit better than Fowler.
Oakland Raiders: Amari Cooper, WR
Washington Redskins: Dante Fowler, Edge
The Redskins lost Brian Orapko to the Titans in free agency, and need to find another pass rusher to pair with Ryan Kerrigan.
New York Jets: Bud Dupree, Edge
Chicago Bears: Leonard Williams, DT
This is somewhat of a fall for Williams, but is he as good as other defensive tackles like Suh, Dareus, or Richardson? I don’t think so, but the Bears get a defensive tackle that can be Vic Fangio’s new Justin Smith.
Atlanta Falcons: Randy Gregory, Edge
The Falcons are in a tough spot with the news of Randy Gregory failing a drug test. The defense needs a pass rusher, but are they willing to take a risk on Gregory? With Shane Ray’s foot injury I think they take a shot.
New York Giants: Andrus Peat, T
The Giants offensive line was horrible, and Justin Pugh was in particular. He probably isn’t a tackle, and Pugh allows him to slide over.
St. Louis Rams: La’El Collins
Minnesota Vikings: Trae Waynes, CB
The Vikings could use a receiver, but cornerback should be a higher priority. They did also sign Terence Newman, but he isn’t the answer.
Cleveland Browns: Kevin White, WR
The Browns desperately need a receiver after the Josh Gordon fiasco.
New Orleans Saints: Danny Shelton, DT
The Saints could use an edge rusher, but Shelton is a disruptive force that is too good to pass up for one of the worst defenses in the NFL.
Miami Dolphins: DeVante Parker, WR
San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Scherff, G
The 49ers could use a lot of things after a disastrous offseason, but they really need to replace Mike Iupati.
Houston Texans: Eric Kendricks, LB
The Texans need to find a reliable linebacker next to Brian Cushing or at least someone that can stay healthy unlike Cushing.
San Diego Chargers: Todd Gurley, RB
Branden Oliver was good for about two games then pretty much fell apart, and Gurley is arguably the best running back to come out in the past few years.
Kansas City Chiefs: Kevin Johnson, CB
With the impending Jeremy Maclin signing it doesn’t look like the Chiefs need to address the receiver position in the draft, but the team still needs to find another cornerback next to Sean Smith.
Cleveland Browns: Shane Ray, Edge
The Browns begin to retool the defense with Danny Shelton, and now Shane Ray. Barkevious Mingo was supposed to be an elite pass rusher, but that hasn’t panned out, and Ray is the best pass rusher available. There are some concerns over Ray’s foot, but until the reports become clearer I won’t drop him out of the first.
Philadelphia Eagles: Landon Collins, S
Byron Maxwell was a big signing, but there isn’t much there after him. However, Earl Wolff is going to cut it at safety so the Eagles go with the top safety in the draft.
Cincinnati Bengals: Malcolm Brown, DT
Pittsburgh Steelers: Jalen Collins, CB
The Steelers were a mess at cornerback, and must address the position.
Detroit Lions: Arik Armstead, DT
With Ndamakong Suh and Nick Fairly potentially on the way out the Lions could lose both starting tackles.
Arizona Cardinals: Bednarick McKinney, LB
Darly Washington has continued to let the Cardinals down creating a need for an inside linebacker.
Carolina Panthers: D.J. Humphries
In 2014 the Panthers offseason consisted of key players leaving in free agency or retiring. They’ve done an okay job getting talent this offseason, but still need offensive line help.
Baltimore Ravens: Breshad Perriman, WR
So, Perriman just ran a really fast 40 time which was supposedly somewhere between 4.2 and 4.3. If that is the case at 6’2, 212 pounds he should rise in this draft. The Ravens lost Torrey Smith to the 49ers, and Perriman has the speed to replace him.
Dallas Cowboys: Melvin Gordon, RB
The Cowboys can’t think Darren McFadden is that answer at running back.
Denver Broncos: Ereck Flowers, T
Indianapolis Colts: Cedric Ogbuehi, T
Gosder Cherilus was hurt and ineffective for the Colts, if Ogbuehi checks out medically he could be a steal.
Green Bay Packers: Denzel Perryman, LB
New Orleans Saints: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR
New England Patriots: Marcus Peters, Edge
The Patriots lost both Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner in free agency, Marcus Peters supposedly has off-the-field issues, but the Patriots can deal with the risk.
