2. Detroit -- Ndamukong Suh, DT: They need a run stopper inside and Suh will be a big upgrade for them. Jim Schwartz might see some Albert Haynesworth in Suh. Also letting Suh come off the ball more aggressively in the pros than he did in college will make him more effective. I think they would like to trade down, but I don't see any takers.

4. Washington -- Trent Williams, OT: I think they would like to trade down, but like Detroit, I do not see any takers. I believe they will favor Williams over Okung based on athletic ability and he reminds some people of Ryan Clady, whom Mike Shanahan took in Denver. I believe Williams is a better prospect than Clady was when he was drafted.
11. Denver -- Rolando McClain, LB: They certainly could think about Dez Bryant here. But they can line up at WR now with Eddie Royal, Jabbar Gaffney and Brandon Stokley. ILB is a big need. If McClain is gone, an interior lineman is a possibility, too -- Maurkice Pouncey or Mike Iupati.
12. Miami -- Sergio Kindle, OLB: I don't feel good about putting Kindle here, but he is the consensus top 3-4 OLB in this draft. I think they would like to trade down and get back their second-round pick. If Dan Williams is still here, they would take him ahead of Kindle.
15. New York Giants -- Jason Pierre-Paul, DE: LB is a big need but I think DE is a bigger need than most people realize. Paul won't have to play right away, which will help him. He has the body type the Giants like in their ends.
18. Pittsburgh -- Maurkice Pouncey, C: Pouncey can play center or guard, so his versatility makes him a valuable pick here. The Steelers spent a lot of time looking at OLB this spring. CB is a possibility, too.
20. Houston -- Kyle Wilson, CB: They have a need for a bigger back; Ryan Mathews will have to get some consideration here. If Earl Thomas is still here, he would also be considered, but CB is a big need, especially with the Colts as their opening game.
22. New England -- Jared Odrick, DE: They have a big need at OLB. Will they reach some for Jerry Hughes or take a DL? I picked the DL. The Pats have three picks in the second round, so a trade up is possible. One of these possibilities is they could trade ahead of Cincinnati to get Gresham.
24. Philadelphia -- Earl Thomas, S: They helped themselves at a number of positions in the offseason, but safety was not one of them. With their extra picks, Philly could be aggressive and move up in Round 1.
25. Baltimore -- Dez Bryant, WR: They could go a number of ways here. But the one thing they will not do is to reach for a need. They could also go for a TE, DL or CB. They will take the highest-rated player at one of these three positions plus WR.
30. Minnesota -- Jimmy Clausen, QB: The odds would be against Clausen getting to Minnesota, but they are not impossible. The Vikings have a clear need for a young QB to develop, and Clausen would not have to play right away, which would help him. If Clausen is gone, CB and OT could be considerations here, too.
32. New Orleans -- Brian Price, DT: They would like to get a big back. Remember, they tried to trade for Chris Wells last year, but with Mathews gone, they will go to another position. OLB is a need, and if Sean Weatherspoon is here, that would be a possibility. DT is another need.
