Mariota will not thrive for this franchise. Titans go defense or trade the pick for Philip Rivers. Size, speed and long arms, paired with new acquisition Brian Orakpo, could revitalize a poor defensive line.[/su_box]

Gus Bradley is a defensive mind working with a young team. The best available defensive star to add to Bradley’s unit will be this USC stud.[/su_box]

Last year, Oakland made the smart and safe pick with Khalil Mack (LB) and they will do the same this year. The offense has almost no talent. Cooper’s talents are not mini, look for him to be the Watkins of this year’s draft.[/su_box]

Somebody has to block in order for the Redskins to find their identity. Could RG3 rise again under a better offensive line?[/su_box]

The Cleveland Browns do not have a starting quarterback with a few picks to spare. The Jets agree to trade down and stick with Geno Smith.[/su_box]

The Chicago defense has completely decayed and the linebacker core needs to be addressed.[/su_box]

Matt Ryan is the pride and joy of this franchise and they no longer have a star running back. Shore up the line now; draft a star running back later.[/su_box]

Plug a top ten defensive tackle in between Jason Pierre Paul and Robert Ayers and the Giants pass rush could become something to fear in the NFC East.[/su_box]

Jimmy Graham in the NFC West is enough to raise awareness on your defensive backfield. Paired with Janoris Jenkins, this pick could give the Rams a strength.[/su_box]

Is Adrian Peterson in, or is he out? Nobody knows, but this seems like a good opportunity for a running back to be taken in the first round for the first time since 2012.[/su_box]

The New York Jets will follow the Vikings after trading down with Cleveland by taking the next best running back. This addition could indirectly help Geno Smith keep his starting job.[/su_box]

Goodbye Jimmy Graham, goodbye Kenny Stills, goodbye Saints’ offense. This team is far from okay, and Drew Brees is not getting any younger.[/su_box]

Say hello to Ndamukong Suh and the suddenly relevant Dolphins defense. They ought to keep this notion in the draft by shoring up the cornerback position.[/su_box]

Chris Borland gone, Patrick Willis gone, Justin Smith is unsure of retirement, and who knows what is going on with Aldon Smith right now. The Niners are in shambles and they must address the linebacker position.[/su_box]

San Diego has plenty of offensive weapons around Phillip Rivers, but they lack a run game with the recent Ryan Mathews departure. Improve the offensive line and draft a stud running back(s) somewhere in the next rounds.[/su_box]

The Chiefs’ West Coast offense is centered on a capable quarterback in Alex Smith and the sure feet of Jamaal Charles. What most do not know, is the emergence of sophomore ex-Oregon Duck, De’Anthony Thomas. Runs, runs and more runs, the Chiefs will add power to the middle.[/su_box]

Jason Worilds’ unexpected retirement paired with Troy Polamalu’s means the Steelers will go defense in this draft. Plus, their offense did not look too bad last year.[/su_box]

The Lions’ biggest need is on the offensive line, despite popular belief. Yes, there is a hole on the defensive line, but the no. 1 guard is still on the board, pushing Rob Sims to the side.[/su_box]

Yes, the signing of Frank Gore helps balance the offense, but he is not aging backwards. The man is over the hill in football years, and what a great time to mentor a rookie running back. You’re welcome Andy.[/su_box]
