    A very strong young potential offensive tackle, only problem injury prone...

DraftSite's comments: Stop me if you have heard this before..."Cleveland is in the market for a quarterback". The Johnny Manziel saga is tragic, especially since he wasn't awful on the field. Wentz has been our top guy all year and it burns me up reading other publications that claim "Wentz has come out of nowhere".

DraftSite's comments: Eric Weddle has been the rock for this team and Jalen Ramsey will be viewed as his longtime replacement. Ramsey has safety and cornerback experience, his versatility likely pushes him ahead of Vernon Hargreaves on teams boards.

DraftSite's comments: Jack, unlike Jaylon Smith, hurt his knee early enough that he should be fully recovered for the 2016 season or close to it. Ironic the Cowboys would select a linebacker coming off a major injury since the reason he would be drafted would be to compensate for when Sean Lee and Rolando McClain went down. One could argue the losses at linebacker hurt the Cowboys as much as being without Tony Romo at quarterback.

DraftSite's comments: Dante Fowler was the player taken last season and his rookie season lasted about 20 minutes in practice before an ACL tear. Fowler will be back but the Jags can't take any chances. Why not select the best overall prospect on the entire board. This is a season which should determine if the Jaguars go looking for a coach next year or if Gus Bradley sticks around. Gus needs players that will help him win now.

DraftSite's comments: The Ravens need secondary help in the worst way and although they don't have a history of moving up the draft board often, they could surprise in trying to land Jalen Ramsey. Here with no trade scenarios Ronnie Stanley is the sure thing to get a 10-year cornerstone on the line.

DraftSite's comments: This is a 50-50 call right now for us between Jared Goff and Laquon Treadwell. Chip Kelly gets to start with the quarterback of his choosing and sculpt him from Day 1. This is a little risky because Kelly will have no excuses if Goff fails to live up to expectations.

DraftSite's comments: This seems like a slam dunk as a fit for Miami but the Dolphins better be weary of a team trying to leapfrog them. Baltimore and San Francisco could be trade partners for a team wanting the services of Hargreaves knowing he won't slip by the Dolphins.

DraftSite's comments: Tampa Bay has to improve coming off the edge and getting after the quarterback. If not Spence then players like Emmanuel Ogbah, Shaq Lawson or DeForest Buckner make sense.


DraftSite's comments: Once the strength of the Giants, the defensive line has struggled finding the quarterback. The Giants look like they simply take the most versatile rusher available since they move their players all over the line.

DraftSite's comments: The Saints just need defensive help period. When you need help in multiple areas then finding a big stop-gap lineman is always a great place to start since strong play at the position helps you in so many areas. The Saints take the best player available at defensive tackle in this scenario.

DraftSite's comments: Finding the long term replacement for Jason Peters should be the focus for the Eagles, we have seen what a messy line has done...or hasn't done for Philadelphia in the past.


DraftSite's comments: The Raiders may go after another pass rushing threat to compliment Khalil Mack but here we have them fixing their most glaring defensive weakness, the secondary.

DraftSite's comments: Laquon Treadwell finishes a close second again for a team on their draft board. With a pair of second round picks the Rams have a little flexibility to pull the trigger on the first round quarterback.

DraftSite's comments: No active player at the NCAA level had more career sacks than Ogbah. He gets after the quarterback and pairing him with Vic Beasley will make opposing offenses uneasy.


DraftSite's comments: We still like the Colts to take the first running back off the board. If not here then the Jets could be the landing spot for Elliot. Reggie Ragland would make a nice fit for the Colts if they look at defense.

DraftSite's comments: It's tempting to give the Bills a pass rushing threat like a Leanard Floyd or a tough rugged linebacker like Reggie Ragland. But in the scenario with no wide receivers off the board it becomes too much for the Bills to resist a compliment to Sammy Watkins.

    Possibly the most versatile defensive player in the draft...

DraftSite's comments: The secondary needs a little more work and Washington has been trading back in recent drafts, if they do it should be a sign they are looking at a corner or a safety. If the Redskins pass on a player like Eli Apple, then they take the sure thing here with Reggie Ragland in the middle.

DraftSite's comments: Fuller sneaks back into the first round if he can convince teams he has a clean bill of health and not an injury liability. Coming into the season Fuller was our #3 overall prospect, the talent is there for Pittsburgh to finally take a corner in the opening round.

DraftSite's comments: Vernon Butler is another player that is blazing up the boards. rare to find a player his size with his burst off the ball. This gives the Cardinals the presence they lost with Darnell Dockett.


DraftSite's comments: I love this pick...it's a case of the rich getting richer. Carolina is committed to running the ball and we think the Panthers will take a young stud to run with Cameron Artis-Payne in the future years as Jonathan Stewart may have one more year with the Panthers.
