1. Jacksonville Jaguars
Travon Walker, DL, Georgia
People around the NFL believe Walker is the favorite of GM Trent Baalke, while others in the organization prefer Aidan Hutchinson or Ikem Ekwonu.
Aidan Hutchinson, edge, Michigan
The Lions seem poised to take a pass rusher here, with Hutchinson being the slight favorite over Kayvon Thibodeaux and Jermaine Johnson II.
3. Houston Texans
Kayvon Thibodeaux, edge, Oregon
The Texans are the draft’s biggest wildcard, so Thibodeaux is as good a guess as any.
4. New York Jets
Ikem Ekwonu, offensive line, North Carolina State
The Jets don’t have a huge need on the offensive line, but Ekwonu might be the best player in the draft.
5. New York Giants
Ahmad Gardner, cornerback, Cincinnati
With James Bradberry soon to be traded, it makes sense to take the best cornerback in the draft.
6. Carolina Panthers
Evan Neal, offensive tackle, Alabama
A quarterback could be in play here, but the Panthers don’t have any Day 2 picks.
7. New York Giants
Jermaine Johnson II, edge, Florida State
The Giants badly need an offensive tackle, but building a formidable defense works, too.
CORNERING THE MARKET: Why Ahmad Gardner, Derek Stingley Jr. should be top-10 picks
8. Atlanta Falcons
Drake London, wide receiver, USC
I had Kyle Hamilton here in my last mock, but the Falcons have the worst receiver room in the NFL.
9. Seattle Seahawks
Derek Stingley Jr., cornerback, LSU
Stingley is one of the three most talented players in the draft.
10. New York Jets
Jameson Williams, wide receiver, Alabama
The Jets give Zach Wilson a deep threat to throw to.
11. Washington Commanders
Malik Willis, quarterback, Liberty
Just playing a hunch with this one.
12. Minnesota Vikings
Kyle Hamilton, safety, Notre Dame
This feels low for Hamilton, who was once considered in the mix for the Lions at No. 2.
13. Houston Texans
Garrett Wilson, wide receiver, Ohio State
With the cost of receivers rising, the top three come off the board quickly in this draft.
14. Baltimore Ravens
Charles Cross, offensive tackle, Mississippi State
I’m not doing trades in this mock, but if Cross falls out of the top 10 some team likely will move up to get him.
15. Philadelphia Eagles
Jordan Davis, defensive tackle, Georgia
Pairing Davis with Fletcher Cox gives the Eagles a mountain of a defensive line.
16. New Orleans Saints
Kenny Pickett, quarterback, Pitt
The Saints need a long-term quarterback and Pickett could be the guy.
17. Los Angeles Chargers
Trevor Penning, offensive tackle, Northern Iowa
The Chargers must do a better job protecting Justin Herbert.
18. Philadelphia Eagles
Dax Hill, safety, Michigan
Two Michigan defenders in the top 20.
19. New Orleans Saints
Chris Olave, wide receiver, Ohio State
And now the Saints get their new quarterback one of the draft’s top receivers.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers
Trent McDuffie, cornerback, Washington
Don’t be surprised if the Steelers go up to get their quarterback.
21. New England Patriots
Andrew Booth Jr., cornerback, Clemson
A replacement for J.C. Jackson.
22. Green Bay Packers
Devin Lloyd, linebacker, Utah
Aaron Rodgers will get his receiver … eventually.
23. Arizona Cardinals
Treylon Burks, wide receiver, Arkansas
With contract talks moving slowly, the Cardinals have to do something to keep Kyler Murray happy.
24. Dallas Cowboys
Kenyon Green, offensive line, Texas A&M
The Cowboys need to rebuild their once-dominant offensive line.
25. Buffalo Bills
Kaiir Elam, cornerback, Florida
As good as the quarterbacks are in the AFC, the Bills can’t go wrong adding another cornerback.
26. Tennessee Titans
Matt Corral, quarterback, Ole Miss
Time to start planning for life after Ryan Tannehill.
27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Devonte Wyatt, defensive tackle, Georgia
Off-field questions could cause Wyatt to slide into late Round 1.
28. Green Bay Packers
Christian Watson, wide receiver, North Dakota State
Watson’s size and speed is worth a roll of the dice for the Packers.
29. Kansas City Chiefs
Quay Walker, linebacker, Georgia
In a bit of a surprise, Walker goes before his more heralded Georgia teammate, Nakobe Dean.
30. Kansas City Chiefs
Drake Jackson, edge, USC
31. Cincinnati Bengals
George Karlaftis, edge, Purdue
Karlaftis had more pressures than Thibodeaux and Walker last season.
32. Detroit Lions
Nakobe Dean, linebacker, Georgia
Chris Spielman will be celebrating in the draft room if Dean falls to 32.
33. Jacksonville Jaguars
Tyler Smith, offensive tackle, Tulsa
After taking Walker at one, the Jaguars get Trevor Lawrence some help on offense.
34. Detroit Lions
Lewis Cine, safety, Georgia
Another playmaker off Georgia’s star-studded defense could be just what the doctor ordered for the Lions.
