• 6’0″

/ 194 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 243 lbs

Projected Team

Chicago

PROSPECT RNK

1st

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 218 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Panthers would jump at the opportunity to pick Stroud at No. 3 overall. He isn’t super mobile but does everything else at an elite level at the quarterback position.

Penn State

• Soph

• 6’6″

/ 321 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Fashanu is a young, athletic blocker with clean film. He’s exactly what the Steelers need up front for Year 2 of the Kenny Pickett era.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 300 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Seahawks would love to land the big, powerful, super-disruptive Carter to bolster the pass rush.

Kentucky

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 232 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Levis hasn’t built on an awesome 2021, yet he has all the traits teams want in their franchise quarterbacks today. He can sit for at least half of his rookie season behind Jared Goff if needed.

TCU

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 215 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Jaguars have a quality pass-catching group, as the Zay Jones and Christian Kirk duo has performed well. Johnston can elevate the weapons around Trevor Lawrence to the next level. He’s big, strong, and very fast.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Indianapolis

PROSPECT RNK

29th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Colts need plenty on each side of the ball. In this case, they go best player available with some upside. That’s Murphy.

South Carolina

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Smith is a no-nonsense outside cornerback who’d bring much-needed swagger to the Raiders secondary at outside corner.

Clemson

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 305 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

5th

The Texans need high-upside talent all over the defense. That’s precisely what Bresee is, and he can play multiple positions up front.

Northwestern

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Cardinals have needed to build the offensive line for a while now, and Skoronski is truly one of the safer prospects in this first round because of his balance and squeaky-clean film.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Lions like some of their young defensive pieces. It’s time to infuse the offense with more talent. Mayer can immediately step in as TE1 after the T.J. Hockenson trade.

Oregon

• Soph

• 6’2″

/ 201 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

43rd

POSITION RNK

6th

The Eagles add some youth to the perimeter cornerback spot on the roster with Gonzalez, who’ll be a riser during the pre-draft process because of his size and athleticism.

USC

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 175 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

3rd

YES! A receiver for Aaron Rodgers. Addison is an ultra-shifty, super-reliable target who can play inside or outside for Green Bay for years to come.

Texas Tech

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Wilson is a big, long, versatile rusher with serious point-of-attack power. He’d formulate a nice, complementary tandem with Arnold Ebiketie on the Falcons’ pass-rush unit.

Tennessee

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 185 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Hyatt probably doesn’t come in and dominate as a WR1. In Washington, he wouldn’t need to. He’s a blow-the-roof-off-the-defense type.

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’8″

/ 359 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Instead of going quarterback here because of a lack of high-floor, ready-to-play options, the Jets stay the course with Zach Wilson and get him better protection with Jones, a colossal right tackle who’s been a brick wall for the Buckeyes.

Florida

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 232 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

4th

Home-run fit here. Richardson has All-Pro upside, and Brian Daboll worked for four years with Josh Allen in Buffalo.

Georgia

• Soph

• 6’2″

/ 210 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

Bill Belichick loves himself some physical, man-to-man cornerbacks, and that’s exactly what Ringo is.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 347 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

More overtly strong blockers in front of Geno Smith. Torrence has been a rock in his debut season with the Gators after transferring from Louisiana.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 270 lbs

Washington is still a bit raw, but he’s going to have an enormous workout at the combine. The Chargers could use more down-the-seam reinforcement in their offense.

Maryland

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

68th

POSITION RNK

11th

Duncan is a dancing bear at tackle and would allow the Titans to continue to deploy their against-the-grain, run-heavy philosophy that works.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Bengals won’t ever get complaints from fans if they continue to add to the blocking unit. Johnson can be begin his career at guard in Cincinnati.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 213 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Do the Bucs have the coaching infrastructure to tap into the high-level Nix without allowing the bad Nix to frequently appear? Given the Oregon quarterback’s skills, it might be worth it for Tampa Bay to give a shot.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Vikings offense is, at times, a bit too reliant on Justin Jefferson, who’s an absolute monster. Smith-Njigba can eat from the slot in an offense centered around Jefferson.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

5th

Porter Jr. is the type of unafraid cornerback the Ravens will love come draft time.

Arkansas

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 233 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Sanders flies around at the second level, and this selection would allow Micah Parsons to solely man edge-rusher duties.

Georgia

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

5th

The Broncos have to refortify the offensive line. Jones is the best blocker on Georgia’s overwhelming front.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Chiefs couldn’t pass on a talent like Boutte this late in the first round. He has WR1 abilities.

Texas

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 220 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

1st

Robinson can handle feature-back duties — and thrive — behind the Eagles studly offensive line right away.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Branch would quickly acclimate to Buffalo’s defense as a do-everything corner/safety. Given the ages of Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde, this is a sensible pick by Buffalo.
