1. Kansas City Chiefs – Luke Joeckel (OT), Texas A&M: The Chiefs go with the safe pick and get a long-term solution at left take in Joeckel.
2 Jacksonville Jaguars – Dion Jordan (DE/OLB), Oregon: A freak of an athlete, Jordan could be a star in the making for team moving to hybrid defense.
3. Oakland Raiders – Sharrif Floyd (DT), Florida: They’ll try to trade down, but have competition. Enter the best defensive tackle in the draft.
4. Philadelphia Eagles – Eric Fisher (OT), Central Michigan: He could go at No. 2 to the Jaguars.
5. Detroit Lions – Lane Johnson (OT), Oklahoma: A few years from now, Johnson, a rare athlete for an offensive lineman, may turn out to be the best tackle in this class.
6. Cleveland Browns -- Dee Milliner (CB), Alabama: A potential lockdown corner in Milliner can give them the best CB tandem in the league.
7. Arizona Cardinals -- Jonathan Cooper (OG), North Carolina: The Cardinals need to improve up front, and Cooper is a rare interior lineman who warrants a Top 10 pick.
8. Buffalo Bills (projected trade) – San Francisco 49ers: Star Lotulelei (DT), Utah: The 49ers move up to grab an ideal brute for a 3-4 defensive front before the New York Jets can.
9. New York Jets – Tavon Austin (WR), West Virginia: The Jets have a ton of needs, but with deep CB and DT classes, they opt for a game-changer on offense/special teams.
10. Tennessee Titans – Ezekiel Ansah (DE), Brigham Young: The Titans need a long-term solution at defensive end and Ansah can be an explosive pass rusher. He has tons of untapped potential.
11. San Diego Chargers – Chance Warmack (OG), Alabama: With big holes up front, getting Warmack, who has been called the best player in this draft by some analysts, would be huge.
12. Miami Dolphins – Xavier Rhodes (CB), Florida State: The Dolphins want to trade down, but they also are in desperate need for a cornerback after losing both starters.
13. New York Jets (from Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – Jarvis Jones (OLB), Georgia: With his athleticism and pass-rushing skills, Jones is a great fit for any team that run a 3-4.
14. Carolina Panthers – Sheldon Richardson (DT), Missouri: They may target a receiver but Ron Rivera gets a beast for his defensive line.
15. New Orleans Saints – Barkevious Mingo (OLB/DE), LSU: The Saints go local and find a good edge rusher for their new 3-4 scheme.
16. St. Louis Rams – Kenny Vaccaro (SS), Texas: The Rams need a receiver badly, but beat the potential safety rush behind them and grab a starter from Day 1.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers – Tyler Eifert (TE), Notre Dame: The Steelers have several areas to address, but TE Heath Miller, a valuable target for QB Ben Roethlisberger, is coming off major knee surgery.
18. Dallas Cowboys – Sylvester Williams (DT), North Carolina: They have plenty of options here, but adding a disruptive force up front fills a definite need.
19. New York Giants – Alec Ogletree (ILB), Georgia: This pick could change everything for the Bears since the Giants have similar needs on both sides of the ball.
20. Chicago Bears (projected trade) – Houston Texans: Cordarrelle Patterson (WR), Tennessee: GM Phil Emery finds a trade partner with an extra third-round pick, and the Texans strike to grab a big receiver before the receiver-needy Rams and Vikings.
21. Cincinnati Bengals – D.J. Fluker (OT), Alabama: With the re-signing of Andre Smith unlikely, Fluker steps in on the right side.
22. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins) – Eddie Lacy (RB), Alabama: With Steven Jackson gone, the Rams select a similar back.
23. Minnesota Vikings – Manti Te’o (ILB), Notre Dame: With the Bears passing on Te’o, the Vikings should be happy to have him, especially with other ND products on the roster to help his assimilation.
24. Indianapolis Colts – Datone Jones (DE), UCLA: Considered a hybrid player, Jones improves the Colts pass rush as Jones finds a home in their 3-4 scheme.
25. Minnesota Vikings (from Seattle Seahawks) – Desmond Trufant (CB), Washington: The Vikings opt to wait on a receiver and grab a top-notch cornerback to replace Antoine Winfield.
26. Green Bay Packers – Matt Elam (SS), Florida: A good safety like Elam should solidify their secondary, especially with Charles Woodson gone.
27. Houston Texans (projected trade) – Chicago Bears: Arthur Brown (ILB/OLB), Kansas State: The Bears land a versatile linebacker and an extra pick or two to target cornerbacks and offensive linemen – two positions of strength in the draft -- later.
28. Denver Broncos –Bjoern Werner (DE), Florida State: The Broncos need a pass rusher and Werner has that motor teams covet. Teammate Tank Carradine also is an option.
29. New England Patriots -- Margus Hunt (DE), SMU: The next J.J. Watt? Hunt’s a monster at 6-8 and 272 pounds, and he’s raw but the Patriots could refine him.
30. Atlanta Falcons – Zach Ertz (TE), Stanford: Tony Gonzalez won’t play forever and, although is Eifert gone, Ertz is a solid replacement.
31. San Francisco 49ers (projected trade) -- Buffalo Bills: Ryan Nassib (QB), Syracuse: The eighth overall pick was way too early for Nassib, but this works and they add picks from a team, who has plenty.
32. Baltimore Ravens -- Kevin Minter (ILB), LSU: The Ravens need linebackers, especially with Ray Lewis now working for ESPN.
