If No. 10 overall pick Todd Gurley is going to provide Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams an Eddie George-like presence in the running game as the club hopes, he'll need help from an offensive line expected to field three new starters in 2015, which may very well include Brown (predominately a tackle at Louisville) inside at right guard.
With the need for a No. 1 target filled due to the trade for All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham, the Seahawks are hoping that the speedy rookie can provide a complementary threat on offense and spark a return game that ranked among the league's worst a year ago.
Trent Baalke invested first round picks in safeties Eric Reid and Jimmie Ward, so why another one with Jaquiski Tartt at No. 46 overall? Tartt, however, could make the most immediate impact for a rookie class that appears largely designed to build for 2016 and beyond.
Amari Cooper and Mario Edwards, Jr. fill big needs in Oakland, but don't overlook third-round pick Clive Walford at TE. The Raiders' new up-tempo offense could make him an immediate favorite of second-year quarterback Derek Carr.
Chiefs fans may be excited about upgrades at WR but they should also be pumped about ex-University of Missouri offensive tackle Mitch Morse, who will prove his value by replacing departing center Rodney Hudson.
If there is a silver lining to the season-ending ACL tear suffered by Denver Broncos' Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady, it is that the club's second round pick is an ideal match in new head coach Gary Kubiak's beloved West Coast Offense and therefore could step in and play immediately.
Veteran cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Kyle Wilson were brought in to help but don't be surprised if former Florida State standout P.J. Williams outplays his third round selection and proves a 'starter' at nickel as a rookie for the Saints.
