    1. LOS ANGELES RAMS

    Pick: Jared Goff

    Do-over: Dak Prescott

    Who knew that Prescott would play at a historic level as a rookie starter? If the Rams had known, they might've pulled the trigger on the ex-Mississippi State star with the first pick.

    2. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

    Pick: Carson Wentz

    Do-over: Same

    Wentz is the big, athletic QB1 that Doug Pederson wants to build his team around.

    3. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

    Pick: Joey Bosa

    Do-over: Same

    Energetic pass rusher is a demon off the edge.

    4. DALLAS COWBOYS

    Pick: Ezekiel Elliott

    Do-over: Same

    The electric runner is approaching the 1,600-yard mark behind the Cowboys' monstrous offensive line.

    5. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

    Pick: Jalen Ramsey

    Do-over: Same

    Despite the Jaguars' defensive struggles, Ramsey is a bright spot as a potential shutdown corner.

    6. BALTIMORE RAVENS

    Pick: Ronnie Stanley

    Do-over: Laremy Tunsil

    If not for the viral video that led to his draft-night slide, the ex-Ole Miss standout would've been the pick for the Ravens as the team's franchise tackle for the next decade.


    7. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

    Pick: DeForest Buckner

    Do-over: Jared Goff

    The 49ers won't return to prominence until they find a franchise QB. Goff would've given Chip Kelly a young spread quarterback to insert into his system.

    8. TENNESSEE TITANS

    Pick: Jack Conklin

    Do-over: Same

    The rock-solid edge blocker has teamed with Taylor Lewan to give the Titans a formidable front line.

    9. CHICAGO BEARS

    Pick: Leonard Floyd

    Do-over: Same

    Speedy pass rusher has sufficiently filled the Bears' biggest need as an explosive edge rusher.

    10. NEW YORK GIANTS

    Pick: Eli Apple

    Do-over: Ronnie Stanley

    In hindsight, the Giants would love to find an upgrade at left tackle to solidify the protection around Eli Manning.

    11. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

    Pick: Vernon Hargreaves

    Do-over: Same

    The talented cover corner has been a terrific fit in Mike Smith's zone-based defense.



    12. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

    Pick: Sheldon Rankins

    Do-over: Same

    It's not a coincidence that the Saints' D vastly improved with Rankins in the lineup. That alone would prompt Sean Payton to take the ex-Louisville standout in a re-do.

    13. MIAMI DOLPHINS

    Pick: Laremy Tunsil

    Do-over: Eli Apple

    Apple would've been a nice addition to a Dolphins defense that needs some young, athletic defenders on the island.

    14. OAKLAND RAIDERS

    Pick: Karl Joseph

    Do-over: Same

    Playmaking safety has shown promise playing alongside Reggie Nelson in the Raiders' defensive backfield.

    15. CLEVELAND BROWNS

    Pick: Corey Coleman

    Do-over: Paxton Lynch

    The Browns HAVE to take a quarterback in a draft do-over. Lynch would've given Hue Jackson a big, athletic passer to build around.


    16. DETROIT LIONS

    Pick: Taylor Decker

    Do-over: Jordan Howard

    Adding a bruising runner behind Matthew Stafford would give balance to the Lions' high-powered offense.

    17. ATLANTA FALCONS

    Pick: Keanu Neal

    Do-over: Same

    The Falcons needed a big hitter in the middle of the field to add some toughness to the defense. Neal has provided plenty of pop as the Falcons' designated enforcer.

    18. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

    Pick: Ryan Kelly

    Do-over: Noah Spence

    Without a legitimate pass rusher off the edges, the Colts have no chance of fielding a championship-caliber defense. Spence would've given the Colts an electric pass rusher on the back side.

    19. BUFFALO BILLS

    Pick: Shaq Lawson

    Do-over: DeForest Buckner

    Rex Ryan loves big-bodied defenders with versatile skills. Buckner could fill multiple roles along the Bills' front line.


    20. NEW YORK JETS

    Pick: Darron Lee

    Do-over: Deion Jones

    Gang Green could use a young, athletic linebacker with a knack for finding the ball. Jones would shine as a designated playmaker behind the Jets' talented defensive line.

    21. HOUSTON TEXANS

    Pick: Will Fuller

    Do-over: Same

    Brock Osweiler's passing woes have limited Fuller's impact as a big-play receiver, but there's no denying his explosiveness and playmaking potential as a WR2.

    22. WASHINGTON REDSKINS

    Pick: Josh Doctson

    Do-over: Michael Thomas

    Nothing wrong with giving Kirk Cousins another pass-catcher with sticky hands and exceptional ball skills.

    23. MINNESOTA VIKINGS

    Pick: Laquon Treadwell

    Do-over: Derrick Henry

    Henry could've kept the Vikings' playoff hopes afloat when Adrian Peterson was sidelined with an injury. More importantly, he would've been a nice successor as a big-bodied RB1 with size, strength and speed.


    24. CINCINNATI BENGALS

    Pick: William Jackson III

    Do-over: Tyreek Hill

    The "do-it-all" playmaker would've added some juice to the Bengals' offense.

    25. PITTSBURGH STEELERS

    Pick: Artie Burns

    Do-over: Same

    The ex-Miami two-sport standout (track/football) has flashed terrific ball skills and instincts as a zone corner.

    26. DENVER BRONCOS

    Pick: Paxton Lynch

    Do-over: Darron Lee

    Adding another speedster to a defense that flies to the ball like a pack of wolves is always a good idea. Lee's potential as sideline-to-sideline playmaker would enhance the Broncos' stingy defense.

    27. GREEN BAY PACKERS

    Pick: Kenny Clark

    Do-over: Adolphus Washington

    Rugged interior defender with a power-based game would fit in nicely in Dom Capers' 3-4 defense.


    28. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

    Pick: Joshua Garnett

    Do-over: Reggie Ragland

    The 49ers' D never recovered from the loss of Patrick Willis in the middle. The 49ers would be wise to add a "thumper" like Ragland, who missed his rookie season with an injury, to the mix to shore up a porous unit.

    29. ARIZONA CARDINALS

    Pick: Robert Nkemdiche

    Do-over: Yannick Ngakoue

    A team can never have enough pass rushers with disruptive skills. The ex-Maryland standout already looks a future Pro Bowler at the position

    30. CAROLINA PANTHERS

    Pick: Vernon Butler

    Do-over: Taylor Decker

    Part of Cam Newton's struggles can be attributed to the lack of protection on the edges. Decker would've upgraded the Panthers' personnel on the edges.

    31. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

    Pick: Germain Ifedi

    Do-over: Chris Jones

    Pete Carroll would love to add another high-motor interior defender with size, strength and toughness in a redo.

    The Ramsey love simply defies logic at this point.
