Prisco says you never have too many pass rushers, so Philly takes Dion Jordan. (USATSI)

1. Kansas City Chiefs -- Luke Joeckel, T, Texas A&M: The safe pick is to take a tackle. For now, I am sticking with Joeckel.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU: He is a project, but they don't need to rush. He just needs to be a force in a year or two.

3. Oakland Raiders -- Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida: The inside of their defense is a mess, and this kid is a force.

4. Philadelphia Eagles -- Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon: Even after signing Connor Barwin, you can never have enough pass rushers.

5. Detroit Lions -- Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU: They still have a huge hole at defensive end.

6. Cleveland Browns -- Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama: They've addressed the front in free agency, so it's time to get a corner.

7. Arizona Cardinals -- Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: Drew Stanton's signing won't scare them away if they like the kid enough.

8. Buffalo Bills -- Matt Barkley, QB, USC: There is no quarterback of note on the roster. They have to take one.

9. New York Jets -- Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia: At some point, they have to get somebody to attack the quarterback.

10. Tennessee Titans -- Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina: The interior of the offensive line got help with Andy Levitre, but Cooper would make it one of the league's best lines.

11. San Diego Chargers -- Eric Fisher, T, Western Michigan: Even after signing King Dunlap, they have a huge hole at left tackle and Fisher would fill it if he lasts this long.

12. Miami Dolphins -- Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State: With Sean Smith gone, they have find a quality cover corner in a division with Tom Brady.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah: They lost Roy Miller, so they can take this kid and pair him inside with Gerald McCoy.

14. Carolina Panthers -- Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri: Free agency has done nothing to fix the middle of their defensive line.

15. New Orleans Saints -- Lane Johnson, T, Oklahoma: With Jermon Bushrod gone to the Bears, they have to get a left tackle.

16. St. Louis Rams -- Chance Warmack, G, Alabama: They probably would love Johnson, but if he's gone, they also need help at guard.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Bjoern Werner, OLB, Florida State: With James Harrison gone, they take a college end and move him to linebacker.

18. Dallas Cowboys -- Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State: The middle of their defense needs to be fortified, and Hankins can do it.

19. New York Giants -- Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame: They lost Martellus Bennett to the Bears, so they need a replacement.

20. Chicago Bears -- Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State: They have a hole at linebacker, and this kid can fill it.

21. Cincinnati Bengals -- Menelik Watson, T, Florida State: They haven't re-signed Andre Smith yet, so we put a replacement in here.

22. St. Louis Rams (From Washington Redskins) -- Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia: They lost Danny Amendola, so they get a faster version of him.

23. Minnesota Vikings -- Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee: Yes, they added Greg Jennings, but they need more.

24. Indianapolis Colts -- Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington: He is a solid cover player who would fill a major need.

25. Minnesota Vikings (From Seattle Seahawks) -- Datone Jones, DE, UCLA: Jared Allen isn't a kid anymore.

26. Green Bay Packers -- Kawann Short, DT, Purdue: They have to get better in the middle of their defense.

27. Houston Texans -- Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas: With the loss of Glover Quin, they have a big hole in the defense.

28. Denver Broncos -- Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama: The interior of their line needs upgrading and Williams had a great pro day.

29. New England Patriots -- Robert Woods, WR, USC: They still need receiver help outside.

30. Atlanta Falcons -- Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M: They have to get an edge rusher.

31. San Francisco 49ers -- Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State: Their corners were exposed some in the playoffs.

32. Baltimore Ravens -- Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: Anquan Boldin is gone, so they get a young replacement.
