      1. Tennessee TitansLaremy Tunsil, OT, MississippiThe Titans have made it clear they're open to trading the No. 1 overall pick, but general manager Jon Robinson also emphasized last week they would need a substantial offer to do so. If they keep the pick, I could see them going in one of three directions: pass-rusher (Joey Bosa is the most obvious candidate), defensive back (Jalen Ramsey) or left tackle (Tunsil). I'll stick with Tunsil for now. He's the most talented offensive lineman in the draft, and it's a clear need for the Titans, who have to protect the QB better this season after they allowed 54 sacks total in 2015.2. Cleveland BrownsCarson Wentz, QB, North Dakota StateEven if the Browns sign Robert Griffin III or trade for Colin Kaepernick, they still should use this pick on a quarterback. Since returning to the NFL in 1999, Cleveland has had 24 different starting quarterbacks, five more than any other team in the league. Wentz and Cal's Jared Goff are extremely close on my board, with the North Dakota State product slightly ahead. Wentz has the height, sturdy frame, natural accuracy and on-field leadership you look for in a QB.3. San Diego ChargersJalen Ramsey, DB, Florida StateDefensive line is another need for the Chargers, but with Eric Weddle gone, San Diego will likely look to upgrade its secondary in the draft. Ramsey's ability to play both corner and safety gives him added value to the Chargers, who aren't set at either position. An All-America track-and-field star at Florida State, Ramsey is an extremely rare athlete and one of the best all-around football players in this draft.4. Dallas CowboysJoey Bosa, DE, Ohio StateIf I was running the Cowboys, I'd draft a quarterback. With Tony Romo turning 36 this offseason, now is the time to start planning for the future at the game's most important position. But this is a projection, and all indications are that Dallas will pass on a QB at No. 4. I wouldn't rule out RB Ezekiel Elliott, even after Dallas signed Alfred Morris earlier this week, but the Cowboys have a more dire need at pass-rusher. Yes, I know Bosa doesn't have elite speed off the edge, but he has shown the ability to be dominant -- even when fighting through double- and triple-teams. He has been the top player on my board since August.5. Jacksonville JaguarsMyles Jack, OLB, UCLAThe Jaguars have made a conscious effort to get better on defense this offseason. Next year, they'll add free agents Malik Jackson and Tashaun Gipson -- along with 2015 first-rounder Dante Fowler Jr. (torn ACL) -- to a defense that finished 31st overall in 2015. But the Jaguars still need a playmaker at linebacker, and Jack fits the bill. A true sideline-to-sideline defender, the UCLA product excels in coverage and can make plays all over the field versus the run.6. Baltimore RavensDeForest Buckner, DE, OregonThe Ravens were unusually aggressive in free agency, signing S Eric Weddle, WR Mike Wallace and TE Benjamin Watson. While OT Ronnie Stanley and RB Ezekiel Elliott would both be in play here, I have a feeling Buckner would be the pick if GM Ozzie Newsome sticks to his best-available strategy. The No. 3 player on our board, Buckner isn't a traditional edge rusher, but he is disruptive against the run and plays with a great motor. He has the skill set to fit in both a 3-4 and 4-3 at the next level.7. San Francisco 49ersJared Goff, QB, CalThere has been a lot of noise around Colin Kaepernick since my last mock draft, with the 49ers exploring trade options. As of now, he's still on the roster, but the position is far from settled. If Goff -- or Wentz -- is still on the board at No. 7, you'd have to think San Francisco would at least consider pulling the trigger. A QB with Goff's skill set -- natural accuracy, good anticipation and a smooth release -- would fit nicely within Chip Kelly's offense.8. Philadelphia Eagles*Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre DameJason Peters is 34 years old. It's time for the Eagles to consider teaming Lane Johnson up with a younger tackle on the opposite side. Stanley has experience playing both left and right tackle. With his long arms (35½ inches) and athletic skill set, he has the ideal makeup to eventually develop into a blindside protector at the next level. If he went to Philly, Stanley would get the benefit of not being thrust into left tackle duties from Day 1.*Acquired in the Byron Maxwell/Kiko Alonso trade9. Tampa Bay BuccaneersVernon Hargreaves III, CB, FloridaHargreaves isn't a true speedster (4.50 40-yard dash at the combine), but he wins in coverage thanks to his exceptional quickness, fluidity and ball skills. Even though he's just 5-foot-10, Hargreaves' leaping ability (39-inch vertical jump) helped him snag 10 interceptions in college. The Bucs can never have too many cover guys playing in their division, and drafting Hargreaves would give them the best man-to-man corner in this class.10. New York GiantsShaq Lawson, DE, ClemsonThe Giants spent a truckload of money in free agency on defensive playmakers -- DE Olivier Vernon, CB Janoris Jenkins and DT Damon Harrison. That's a good start for a team that hasn't drafted a defensive player in the first round since 2011, but the Giants shouldn't stop there. Lawson led the FBS last season with 25.5 tackles for loss, playing with a good mixture of relentlessness, technique and discipline. He also brings great work ethic and intangibles to the table.11. Chicago BearsJack Conklin, OT, Michigan StateInside linebacker is much less of a need after the Bears picked up Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman in free agency. But even after signing offensive tackle Bobby Massie, Chicago could still look to spend a first-rounder on another OT. Conklin is a plug-and-play starter on either the left or right side of the line, with the long arms (35 inches) and agility to protect the QB. This move would also allow Kyle Long to bump back inside to his natural position at guard and solidify the entire O-line.12. New Orleans SaintsSheldon Rankins, DT, LouisvilleThe Saints are in dire need of a defensive tackle who can push the pocket from the inside, and one of Rankins' best attributes is his ability to pressure the QB (14.0 sacks during his last two seasons at Louisville). He has a rare combination of quickness and power, which he showed off during one-on-one pass-rush drills at the Senior Bowl.13. Miami Dolphins*Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio StateThe No. 5 player on our board, Elliott has the skill set to be an every-down RB from Day 1. He's an exceptional blocker and a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield, while also showing great vision and suddenness in the open field. The Dolphins need some semblance of a run game to take the pressure off QB Ryan Tannehill.*Acquired in the Byron Maxwell/Kiko Alonso trade14. Oakland RaidersReggie Ragland, ILB, AlabamaRagland is a heat-seeking missile with the toughness to excel as a downhill linebacker. He thrived versus the run at Alabama, but he was never truly unleashed as a pass-rusher. He might have some hidden potential off the edge, possessing underrated speed (4.72 40-yard dash) and athleticism.15. Los Angeles RamsLaquon Treadwell, WR, Ole MissCase Keenum is penciled in as the starting QB right now, so there's always a chance the Rams will try to trade up to grab one of the top-two passers. But with this being too early for Paxton Lynch and Los Angeles still needing a legit difference maker on the outside, Treadwell is the pick. He's the best pure WR in this class, showing outstanding hand-eye coordination and body control.16. Detroit LionsTaylor Decker, OT, Ohio StateThis is a no-brainer. The Lions need to do a better job of protecting QB Matthew Stafford, who has been sacked 89 times over the past two seasons, and Decker is a starting right tackle from Day 1. He doesn't have a lot of flash to his game, but Decker is one of the steadier offensive linemen you'll study on tape.17. Atlanta FalconsDarron Lee, OLB, Ohio StateLee, a former high-school quarterback, still needs a little refinement as a linebacker, but he has been blessed with an elite combination of speed (4.47 40-yard dash) and athleticism. When he's freed up and doesn't have to take on blocks, Lee displays an upper-echelon closing burst getting to the ball carrier.18. Indianapolis ColtsLeonard Floyd, OLB, GeorgiaThe Colts need a lot of help in the trenches, so they should hope that one of the top four OTs falls to them. There's a pretty clear drop-off once Decker comes off the board. Not wanting to reach, Floyd is a good second option here. He possesses rare speed and athleticism for his position and would give the Colts a high-ceiling pass-rusher off the edge.19. Buffalo BillsJarran Reed, DT, AlabamaThe Bills could use an edge rusher or an off-the-line linebacker, but the top options at those positions are off the board. Reed isn't a bad backup option. The Alabama product is the most dominant interior run-stuffer in this draft class. Reed won't be a high-impact pass-rusher, but he's a better athlete than you'd think, capable of pushing the pocket with his power and surprising closing burst.20. New York JetsPaxton Lynch, QB, MemphisAdmittedly, I don't love this pick. It's too early for Lynch, who has a raw skill set and comes from an offense that featured few complex reads. He will need time to adjust to the pro game and is best for a team with a reliable QB already in place. With needs at outside linebacker and offensive tackle, the Jets would have to reach for guys like Noah Spence or Germain Ifedi here if the board fell this way.21. Washington RedskinsAndrew Billings, DT, BaylorBillings has a shorter frame (6-foot-1), but his outstanding combination of quickness, athleticism and power helps him wreak havoc on the interior. This is a dominant and versatile run-defender who would give the Redskins more depth along the defensive front. Additionally, with a need at center, I wouldn't be surprised if Scot McCloughan considered Alabama's Ryan Kelly here.22. Houston TexansWill Fuller, WR, Notre DameThe Texans gave themselves a little freedom in the draft after picking up Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller in free agency. They need to address the interior of their offensive line at some point in the first three rounds, but Osweiler could use another vertical threat to take pressure off DeAndre Hopkins. Fuller, who blazed a 4.32 40 at the combine, fits the bill. While his hands are a bit inconsistent, the Notre Dame product is a big play waiting to happen.23. Minnesota VikingsJosh Doctson, WR, TCUWith exceptional leaping ability (41-inch vertical) and huge hands (10 inches), Doctson is the best WR in this class when the ball is in the air. And he shows the speed on tape to create late separation in contested-catch situations. Teddy Bridgewater needs another weapon on the outside after Mike Wallace was sent packing.24. Cincinnati BengalsCorey Coleman, WR, BaylorComing from Baylor's spread offense, Coleman still needs work as a route runner. But make no mistake, this is an explosive athlete with game-breaking ability on offense and in the return game. While Coleman is a little undersized at 5-foot-11, he can change directions on a dime, which gives him a lot of upside in the NFL. The Bengals are in dire need of a No. 2 WR after both Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones left in free agency.25. Pittsburgh SteelersEli Apple, CB, Ohio StateAt this point, all 21 players with first-round grades are off the board, so every pick could feel like a slight reach. Apple's tape is good but not elite. While his 4.40 40 speed is a positive, he needs to improve his technique in press coverage. He's a willing participant against the run, which is especially important in the AFC North, and teams will like his long, 6-foot-1 frame.26. Seattle SeahawksA'Shawn Robinson, DT, AlabamaRobinson could last a little longer than expected due to his inconsistent motor and lower-body stiffness. But Robinson's raw ability is undeniable, and he appears unblockable at times. Plus, he comes with great durability, playing in all 43 games during his Alabama career. Any team that takes him in the first round will placing a large bet on its defensive line coach's ability to maximize Robinson's unique skill set.27. Green Bay PackersVernon Butler, DT, Louisiana TechAt 6-foot-4 and 323 pounds, Butler has good overall strength, explosive upper-body power and above-average mobility for his size. His tape has flashes of Muhammad Wilkerson (Jets), but he needs to improve his consistency as a pass-rusher. After B.J. Raji's retirement, the Packers need more depth along the D-line. The good news? There's plenty of depth in this D-line class to find a good option here or in Round 2.28. Kansas City ChiefsWilliam Jackson III, CB, HoustonThe Chiefs need WR help, but there's quite a drop-off once the top four pass-catchers come off the board. With a good frame (6-0, 189 pounds) and elite speed (4.37 40), Jackson is a highly competitive corner who thrives off the challenge of facing the opposing team's No. 1 WR. He showed some playmaking ability with two interceptions returns for touchdowns this season, but he struggles at times when the ball is in the air.29. Arizona CardinalsChris Jones, DT, Mississippi StateJones is arguably the most naturally gifted DT in this draft, which is saying something, considering I have seven DTs coming off the board in the Round 1 -- and another five in Round 2. A former high school basketball standout, Jones has a rare combination of length, strength and athleticism. If he remains focused, Jones has the potential to develop into a highly disruptive inside presence.30. Carolina PanthersGermain Ifedi, OT, Texas A&MStanding 6-foot-6, weighing 324 pounds and blessed with incredible 36-inch arms, Ifedi was born to play offensive line. The only times I saw him get beat in pass protection came when he faced elite speed rushers with great hands to negate his long arms. Ifedi's technique, particularly in the run game, could use some work, but his upside is undeniable.31. Denver BroncosRobert Nkemdiche, DT, MississippiDepending on how their quarterback situation shakes out, the Broncos could target Connor Cook here. For now, though, Nkemdiche is an intriguing fit. He has the skill set to play a versatile role within Wade Phillips' defense. He could potentially take over the spot vacated by Malik Jackson. Nkemdiche is a top-10 talent who fell this far because of inconsistent 2015 tape and behavioral concerns.Note: There will be only 31 picks in the first round of the 2016 draft, with New England's first-round pick forfeited.Round 232. Cleveland Browns: Ryan Kelly, OC, AlabamaA three-year starter, Kelly has the intelligence and technique to overcome his physical deficiencies and succeed at the NFL level. He's our top-ranked interior offensive lineman.33. Tennessee Titans: Kamalei Correa, OLB, Boise StateCorrea is a dynamic athlete who really gets after the passer. He started all 27 games in his final two seasons at Boise State, racking up 30 tackles for loss 19 sacks and five forced fumbles.34. Dallas Cowboys: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan StateCook showed better anticipation as a passer in 2015, but his accuracy was still too inconsistent. He could eventually develop into a starting-caliber QB.35. San Diego Chargers: Jason Spriggs, OT, IndianaWhile Spriggs has elite athleticism, he doesn't do the best job of handling power rushers. We have a middle to late second-round grade on him, but I'd be surprised if his upside didn't intrigue a team before then.36. Baltimore Ravens: Noah Spence, OLB, Eastern KentuckyHigh risk, high reward. Spence has Round 1 talent, but his off-field mishaps -- two drug-related suspensions that forced him to transfer away from Ohio State -- give teams pause.37. San Francisco 49ers: Cody Whitehair, OL, Kansas StateWhitehair was a four-year starter, and his exceptional awareness is immediately apparent on tape. He needs to continue to improve his lower-body strength.38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Mackensie Alexander, CB, ClemsonAlexander has one of the higher ceilings in this year's cornerback class due to his movement skills and ability to play press-man coverage. Zero interceptions in 27 college starts is a red flag, though.39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin Dodd, DE, ClemsonDodd finished second in the FBS with 23.5 tackles for loss, up from 2.5 the previous season. Was it a one-year fluke or a sign of things to come? We'll find out soon enough, but it appears Dodd is just scratching the surface of his potential.40. New York Giants: Karl Joseph, S, West VirginiaJoseph is one of the more violent and efficient tacklers we've studied in the past five years at the safety position. And he showed improved range in coverage and ball skills in 2015, finishing with five interceptions in four games.41. Chicago Bears: Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia TechFuller is an instinctive playmaker in coverage, he's tough against the run and he makes an impact on special teams. If he returns from his ACL injury at full strength, he'd be a steal here.42. Miami Dolphins: Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma StateHe's an explosive athlete with elite measurables, but that doesn't show up on tape frequently enough. Ogbah needs to play with more consistent effort, improve as a hand fighter and develop more of an plan as a pass-rusher.43. Los Angeles Rams*: Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn StateHackenberg had his best season when playing under current Texans coach Bill O'Brien. He has ideal size, a big-league arm and adequate pocket mobility. But his decision-making must improve.*Acquired in the Sam Bradford/Nick Foles trade44. Oakland Raiders: Vonn Bell, S, Ohio StateBell played in all 42 games during his career at Ohio State, showing natural ball skills and a knack for coming up big in critical moments. He's the best cover safety in this draft class.45. Los Angeles Rams: Artie Burns, CB, Miami (FL)Burns' extremely long arms (33¼ inches) and ability to play press coverage give him a lot of upside as a cornerback. He had a career-high six interceptions in 2015 after having just one pick during his prior two seasons.46. Detroit Lions: Jonathan Bullard, DT, FloridaBullard has experience playing inside and outside along the D-line. He lacks elite physical tools, but he grows on you the more tape you watch. He's a high-motor player.47. New Orleans Saints: Jaylon Smith, LB, Notre DameSmith got as high as No. 2 on my Top 32 during the season before suffering a devastating knee injury in the Fiesta Bowl. How his medical information checks out will determine where he ends up getting selected. When healthy, Smith is one of the best defensive prospects in recent years.48. Indianapolis Colts: Joshua Garnett, OG, StanfordComing from Stanford, Garnett is built for a power-run scheme. His pass-protection skills need some refining, but at 6-foot-4 and 312 pounds, he possesses adequate short-area quickness.49. Buffalo Bills: Sterling Shepard, WR, OklahomaShepard is a highly instinctive slot WR with good route-running ability and a history of showing up in big moments. His athleticism was readily apparent at the combine (4.48 40, 41-inch vertical).50. Atlanta Falcons: Hunter Henry, TE, ArkansasAt 6-foot-5 and 253 pounds, Henry has the body type to make plays down the seam, and he uses his frame well to shield defenders from the ball in contested-catch situations.51. New York Jets: Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSUHawkins projects as a right tackle prospect with near-elite length (34¼-inch arms) and adequate athleticism in pass protection. His technique is still a work in progress.52. Houston Texans: Austin Johnson, DT, Penn StateA massive nose tackle prospect (6-4, 323), Johnson excels against the run. He showed the ability to anchor against double teams at the Senior Bowl.53. Washington Redskins: Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio StateThomas still needs to develop as a route runner, but he has natural ball skills and the ability to develop into a longtime starter on the outside.54. Minnesota Vikings: Keanu Neal, S, FloridaA physical run defender, Neal comes with very good mental makeup and intangibles. But he doesn't have great playmaking instincts at this point, having tallied just four picks and five pass breakups in two seasons as a full-time starter.55. Cincinnati Bengals: Adolphus Washington, DT, Ohio StateAt the Senior Bowl, Washington showed good first-step quickness off the ball for his size (6-3, 301). He has good range against the run and is disruptive at the point of attack.56. Seattle Seahawks: Derrick Henry, RB, Seattle SeahawksThis is a straight-line explosive back, and you see it on tape. Henry has a ridiculous size-speed combo, running a 4.54 40 at 247 pounds. His game is really about getting downhill. He's a bulldozer when he gets going.57. Green Bay Packers: Jerell Adams, TE, South CarolinaHe's still a work in progress as a blocker, but Adams flashes big-play ability as a pass-catcher down the seam. He's one of the most underrated players in this class.58. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kenny Clark, DT, UCLAClark has the quickness and agility to create some disruption in the backfield, and he's nimble enough to execute twists and stunts. After having just one sack in his first 26 games, he added six last season in 13 contests.59. Kansas City Chiefs: Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio StateA former QB, Miller has caught on quickly as a WR. He's still not a finished product, but Miller has impressed with his explosiveness and improved route running throughout the postseason process.60. New England Patriots: Nick Kwiatkoski, ILB, West VirginiaA three-year starter, Kwiatkoski comes with outstanding makeup and leadership skills. He has a chance to add immediate depth to a linebacker corps while contributing on special teams.61. New England Patriots*: Cyrus Jones, CB, AlabamaStanding just 5-foot-10, Jones lacks prototypical measurables, but he's instinctive, has quality mirror skills and is both physically and mentally tough.*Acquired in Chandler Jones/Jonathan Cooper trade62. Carolina Panthers: Hassan Ridgeway, DT, TexasBig, thick and country strong, Ridgeway is a load to move up front. While he has the natural ability of a first-rounder, durability issues and conditioning concerns will likely cause him to fall.63. Denver Broncos: Jihad Ward, DE, IllinoisWard's tape suggests he's a better run-defender than a pass-rusher, but at the Senior Bowl, he flashed a little in one-on-one drills getting after the quarterback.

      But you line CBs up against WRs, not QBs. Other than the Saints, the South teams are pretty much conservative in their formations, and the Panthers led the league in rushing attempts.

      ^^^ This!Dodd stock hasn't risen that much here, I don't believe so anyways! I would think there could be some one year wonder thoughts about him. Is he elite? Or just Good? Was it due to Lawson from the other side? I just think there are too many questions marks with Dodd.

      Not sold on Dodd in the 2nd.  If Ogbah is there then we need to snatch him up.  As to the WR question, you may want to include the TEs as well since many of them line up outside.  There is J. Jones, Benjamin, Olsen, Fleenor, the kid that NO drafted last year to replace Colston so yeah, there is some quality WRs.

      Yep. If McShay had said that we don't have a good corner, that would be one thing. But he didn't. Our divisional opponents combined don't have as good a crew as the Steelers. And Kelvin Benjamin is one guy! The others are pedestrian.

      There is no telling if Carolina 6'4 wr Funchess develops into a good player. He was only a rookie last year.

      You are missing the point, which isn't that our team doesn't need a certain number of corner backs or that WRs in our division might be good in the future. It's that we aren't in some sort of super pass-happy division that requires a ton of corners as McShay suggests.

      Please wait…

      "The Bucs can never have too many cover guys playing in their division"Because we are known as the WR division. There's Julio Jones and...

      Frickin' Kelvin Benjamin.

      Some fools want to draft a OLB to cover these guys...

      ???  Ryan and Brees are near the top of the league in passing yards practically every year (both were top 5 this year).  And while the Panthers are primarily a running team, Cam threw 35 passing TD's last year.We actually are in pass happy division.
