Robert Woods, WR, USC
If the Dolphins are picking first, they will certainly be in the market to trade down for a team that wants a shot at one of the top quarterbacks. For now, their need a receiver in the worst way.
2. Cleveland Browns
D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama
THe Browns may finally have some real talent at the skill positions, but a new right tackle is still a big need.
3. Minnesota Vikings
Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
Adding a top-notch pass rusher to a defensive line that already has two studs in Jared Allen and Kevin Williams will bring them back to their old days as one of the best defensive lines in the game.
4. Indianapolis Colts
Star Lotulelei , DT, Utah
The Colts are vulnerable up the middle. With a new regime in place, it is finally time to get the Colts’ run defense up to a respectable level, while adding an interior pass-rusher at the same time.
5. Jacksonville Jaguars:
Barrett Jones, OT, Alabama
This may be high for a player that is playing center for his senior season at Alabama, but Jones is one of the most versatile lineman to enter the draft in recent memory.
6. St. Louis Rams
Eric Reid, S, LSU
The Rams defense has made improvements, but they lack a lot of athleticism and play-making ability on the back end.
7. Arizona Cardinals
Matt Barkley, QB, USC
While the Cardinals have been burned on former USC quarterbacks in the recent past, they can feel much better about taking Barkley this early. While there are some questions about how effective he would be without his great supporting cast at USC, he is still arguably the pure passer in the draft.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
David Amerson, CB, NC State
With Rhonde Barber making a move to safety, it is finally time to draft his long-term replacement.
9. Oakland Raiders
Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, Georgia
Now that the Raiders are expected to use more 3-4 looks, they need another version of Kamerion Wimbley to be their primary pass-rusher. Jones has the versatility to play either 4-3 end or standing up as an outside linebacker in a 3-4.
10. Washington Redskins
Keenan Allen, WR, Cal
The Redskins beefed up their receiving corps this offseason, but Santana Moss is not getting any younger. Allen has great athleticism and massive potential, despite a quiet first week of the CFB season.
11. Tennessee Titans
Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas
The Titans were so desperate for defensive end help last year that they moved Jason Jones to the outside on select plays. With Derrick Morgan on one side, the Titans will be set at the end position.
12. San Diego Chargers
Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
The Chargers need a long-term partner for Eric Weddle.
13. Seattle Seahawks
Logan Thomas, QB, Arkansas
Assuming the Matt Flynn is the one-hit wonder that I suspect he is, the Seahawks will be right back in the quarterback market a year from now. Thomas was a bit disappointing in the opener against Georgia Tech on Monday night, but he is dripping with upside.
14. Buffalo Bills
Manti Te’o, MLB, Notre Dame
The Bills have used a lot of resources on their defensive line and secondary, but their linebackers are pretty average. Manti is a pure middle linebacker that could have been a first-rounder if he came out o college last year.
15. Atlanta Falcons
Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Michael Turner’s days as a dynamic runner are running out. Lattimore has top-five talent, so being able to land him at this point in the draft should make the Falcons estatic.
16. Kansas City Chiefs
Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
Outside of quarterback, the Chiefs have arguably the best roster in the NFL. With Matt Cassel already in place, Wilson will have time to develop and not be forced to start right away.
17. Carolina Panthers
Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State
Somehow, the Panthers failed to do much of anything about their gaping holes at defensive tackle in either the draft or free agnecy. That changes with the selection of Hankins.
18. Baltimore Ravens
Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Ravens’ offensive line has struggled in protection as of late, and Bryant McKinnie is not a long-term solution at left tackle. By the time draft season rolls around, Lewan could be regarded as the best tackle prospect in the country.
19. Detroit Lions
Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
With Eric Wright in Tampa Bay, the Lions have some serious issues at the cornerback position. If they can find a few more pieces in the secondary, their defense has a chance to be special.
20. New York Jets
T.J. McDonald, S, USC
Yeremiah Bell is still a solid player, but he is on a one-year deal and will be 35 after this season.
21. Cincinnati Bengals
Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
The Bengals defense has a lot of talent, but the safety position remains to be a huge question mark. George Iloka has potential as a developmental safety, but Jefferson has elite talent and versatility.
22. Houston Texans
Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
The Texans are heavily reliant on their offensive line to generate a running game. After cutting Eric Winston, they will need a high-end replacement as soon as possible.
23. Chicago Bears
Ricky Wagner, OT, Wisconsin
With fellow Wisconsin product Gabe Carimi on the right side, the Bears will be one step closer to solving their seemingly-endless issues along the offensive line.
24. Dallas Cowboys
Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
The Cowboys have plenty of issues along the interior of their offensive line.
25. Denver Broncos
Bennie Logan, DT, LSU
The Broncos landed their interior pass-rusher with Derek Wolfe, but they need another player that can stay on the field for all three downs.
26. New Orleans Saints
Alex Okafor, DE, Texas
The Saints need to find a way to get to the quarterback. Cameron Jordan had a quiet rookie season, so the Saints try again with another Texas pass-rusher.
27. Pittsburgh Steelers
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
There is certianly a possibility that Mike Wallace ends up elsewhere in 2013. Hunter could go in the top-15 picks, so this is a great value pick getting him this far into the first round.
28. San Francisco 49ers
Jonathan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
The 49ers do not have many needs on either side of the ball, but an infusion of youth into the secondary will set them up for the future.
29. New York Giants
William Gholston, DE, Michigan State
With Osi Umenyiora expected to hit free agency in 2013, Jerry Reese is going to want to restock the position where he loves to have depth.
30. Green Bay Packers
Johnny Adams, CB, Michigan State
While Charles Woodson makes a lot of splash plays, he also let up a lot of big plays as a move to safety seems inevitable within the next year. Getting a starting corner in the first round solves two problems with one pick.
31. Philadelphia Eagles
Jelani Jenkins, OLB, Florida
Even after trading for DeMeco Ryans, the Eagles could use more more piece to solidify their linebacking corps.
32. New England Patriots
Khaled Holmes, C, USC
The Patriots’ interior line is starting to show some warts.
