Good list.
While the Vikes could certainly use a guard, I don't see one taken in the first round. I think the Vikings will go DE or DT.

Good draft. Think Fields goes before Wilson.

Although where Watson ends up will effect all this.

Will Bailey get drafted? I noticed he wasn't in the Senior bowl yesterday.

Packers need to go Oline or corner with their first two picks. Unless a stud Dline drops hard.
Oline? We had one of the better performing lines in the league this year. No way they draft a lineman in the first 2 rounds. Really need someone to replace King at CB though.

Limited depth and when DB went down a Rodgers was running for his life too many times. Need to get a RT that can settle in, preferably a LT that can play RT Incase DB can’t some back. That and corner are biggest needs then probably another back (Jones probably gone) and a linebacker.

Depth at oline is never a bad idea obviously but after DB went out, the bucs where the only team able to get pressure. I think LB is the biggest need. But maybe it won’t be AS big of a need with a new DC.

Did the DC get let go, I hope so. There were some very poor decisions made this year.

I think he is probably a 5th or 6th round pick because he is not only a solid pass rusher, but he is great against the run as well.

The Packers do need an offensive tackle. Rick Wagner is not bad, but that is a position they could definitely upgrade. I think they should take a speedy slot WR like Rondale Moore, to give Rodgers another weapon. CB is another need so they could go in that direction as well.

I don't think there is any way that DeVonta Smith falls to 18, that just seems ludicrous to me.

Colts at 21 need: QB, OT, DE, or CB

They wont get a starting QB at 21, I could see them trading the pick for a veteran QB.

I had him going #3 to Miami, but if Sewell is available at that spot they MUST take him. He is the best o-line prospect to enter the draft in years, and there is plenty of great WRs that they could take one later. If the Giants take a WR, I think Ja'Marr Chase would be a better fit since they have smaller WRs already and Chase has pretty good size. Waddle to New England just makes sense. Although I have Smith rated as the #1 WR, I could see him being taken 3rd of the bunch.

Trevor Lawrence Pro Day this morning. Pretty sure NFL Network & ESPN2/ACC Network have coverage of it at 9 am Central.
