WR. TCU. Josh Doctson. 26. player. 60. Here comes the run on Wide Receivers. I doubt the Vikings will pay Mike Wallace $12 million next year, and Patterson has been a bust. Diggs looks dynamic, and he will most likely be the starting wide receiver next year. Doctson if he can get back to full health offers another target for Teddy Bridgewater to rely upon.

49. With Jordy Nelson coming back next year, and the running combination of Starks and Lacey, the Packers only concern is rushing the passer. Capers needs someone to eventually replace Julius Peppers. Calhoun is the best available that fits within their 3-4 scheme.. DE/OLB. Michigan State. Shilique Calhoun. 27. player

28. player. 32. Protecting Carson Palmer is the most important need for this team. When Palmer goes down the Cardinals are barely a .500 team. Invest in young, athletic guards to give Palmer time to develop the passing game and open up running lanes for their speedy backs.. G. LSU. Vadal Alexander

player. 45. This could definitely be a QB? Manning is getting old and Denver can’t think he will be back for another season? 17 INT? I don’t know, but for now at this spot, there isn’t a legit QB that would replace him, unless they trade up. Buckner can line up and play in their 3-4 scheme and make a top defensive unit better.. DE/DT. Oregon. DeForest Buckner. 29

DT. UCLA. Kenny Clark. 30. player. 56. Clark is a huge force in the middle. The only problem I see with the Bengals defense, is their interior. They have legitimate book ends and their secondary is built for speed. If they can continue to add to their interior line, there defense can become scary good.

With Benjamin coming back next season, the Panthers don’t need to develop another first round wide-out. They should definitely address their worst unit, which is the offensive line. Cam Newton might be superman, but he can only dance in the back field for so long.. OT. LSU. Jerald Hawkins. 31. player. 87

47. As part of the NFL’s findings regarding “deflate-gate” the Patriots had their 2016 first round draft pick taken away.. . . Taken Away. 32. player
