1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-14)
Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M. The Chiefs have said they are down to a "final four" pool for the first overall pick, but it's pretty clear that despite their move to franchise-tag Branden Albert, they are very interested in a franchise left tackle. They'll go with Joeckel, who rates a tad better than Central Michigan's Eric Fisher.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-14)
Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon. The Jaguars don't just need a pass rusher, they need a dynamic one to match the energy of their new defensive-minded head coach, Gus Bradley. The ex-Seattle coordinator can tap back into the Pacific Northwest for the explosive Jordan.

3. Oakland Raiders (4-12)
Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida. The Raiders are getting an extreme makeover in the defensive line, as Richard Seymour, Desmond Bryant, Tommy Kelly and Matt Shaughnessy are all out of the picture. Floyd is built to be a disruptive force in a 4-3, and Dennis Allen should be thrilled to have him as a new cornerstone.
4. Philadelphia Eagles (4-12)
Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia. Sure, for the moment, Michael Vick and Nick Foles look like they'll be battling to be the starting quarterback for Chip Kelly. But there's no denying Smith has the basic skill set (arm, accuracy, athleticism) that Kelly could mold into something special in his up-tempo passing offense.
5. Detroit Lions (4-12)
Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan. The Lions did well staying in state with the now retired Michigan product Jeff Backus. And now they can do even better with Fisher, a big man from the Mount Pleasant campus. He's an athletic rock of a blindside pass protector who would make Matthew Stafford very happy.
6. Cleveland Browns (5-11)
Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU. The Browns already added a rising pass rusher from the Beehive State (former Utah and Ravens linebacker Paul Kruger) in free agency. In Ansah, they can add the draft's other freakishly gifted edge player after Jordan.
7. Arizona Cardinals (5-11)
Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma. The Cardinals will take a closer look at Matt Barkley, but they don't need to take a quarterback here anymore after getting Carson Palmer as their short-term veteran solution. The immobile Palmer desperately needs an upgraded Arizona line, and Johnson is the last surefire stud left tackle on the board.
8. Buffalo Bills (6-10)
Matt Barkley, QB, Southern California. The Bills have liked North Carolina State's Mike Glennon for a while and have the coaching ties to Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib. But if they truly want to take the most intriguing quarterback in this class after Smith, Barkley is their man.
9. New York Jets (6-10)
Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia. The rise of Jordan and Ansah can benefit the Jets. For Rex Ryan, he should see Jones as the explosive, versatile playmaker his attack defense has lacked.
10. Tennessee Titans (6-10)
Chance Warmack, G, Alabama. The Titans have made it a point to boost their interior run blocking, and the combination of Warmack and free-agent addition Andy Levitre would do just that.
11. San Diego Chargers (7-9)
Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina. The Chargers need offensive line help, and if the top three offensive tackles and Warmack are gone, they should be happy taking Cooper as an impact player inside.
12. Miami Dolphins (7-9)
Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State. They stay in state to get a sharp cover man with shutdown potential. Rhodes is making a push to be the first corner off the board.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)
Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama. This is why the Bucs don't want to give the Jets this pick for Darrelle Revis — they know they'll have their choice of Rhodes or Milliner to address their big cornerback need.
14. Carolina Panthers (7-9)
Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah. The Panthers have done well with former Utes Steve Smith and Jordan Gross. The versatile Lotulelei would be a nice blocker-eater in front of 2012 first-round linebacker Luke Kuechly, the defensive rookie of the year. 15. New Orleans Saints (7-9)
Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU. The Saints can look down the road--on I-10 to Baton Rouge--to add an attacking edge player suited for their new 3-4 defense under Rob Ryan. Ryan will love both Mingo's bark and bite to get to the quarterback. Sporting News
Starting to see a lot of consolidation, Jets take Jones or Mingo and the Saints take the other.
