Pick, Team, Player, School, Comment

1. Lions, QB Matthew Stafford, Georgia

They would be better off with an offensive tackle, but these are the Lions.

2. Rams, OT Jason Smith, Baylor

Even with Orlando Pace last year, the Rams couldn't protect the quarterback.

3. Chiefs, OT Eugene Monroe, Virginia

Monroe can rejoin former teammate Branden Albert in the KC line.

4. Seahawks, OLB Aaron Curry, Wake Forest

They get the best defensive player in the draft at a position of need.

5. Browns, WR Michael Crabtree, Texas Tech

Even if they keep Braylon Edwards, they need another playmaker.

6. Bengals, OT Andre Smith, Alabama

Their line is a mess; the top priority should be to protect Carson Palmer.

7. Raiders, WR Jeremy Maclin, Missouri

Maclin has enough speed to satisfy even Al Davis.

8. Jaguars, DT B.J. Raji, Boston College

Jaguars were soft in the middle a year ago. This spot could be up for grabs, though.

9. Packers, OLB, Brian Orakpo, Texas

Orakpo would help in the Packers' conversion to a 3-4 scheme.

10. 49ers, OLB Aaron Maybin, Penn State

49ers may trade back if someone wants the second quarterback.11. Bills, TE Brandon Pettigrew, Oklahoma State

The Bills' passing game could be tough if they tap Pettigrew.

12. Broncos, QB Mark Sanchez, USC

They may have to trade up to the eighth pick to get him, but this is a big need.

13. Redskins, DE Robert Ayers, Tennessee

Ayers' stock was on the rise out of the combine.

14. Saints, CB Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State

They were pathetic on defense last year; Jenkins would help stop the bleeding.

15. Texans, OLB Clay Matthews, USC

Another team that's desperate for defense; they could trade down, too.

16. Chargers, RB Chris Wells, Ohio State

They need to find LaDainian Tomlinson's successor.

17. Jets, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland

The other possibility is a trade up for Sanchez.

18. Broncos, DE Tyson Jackson, LSU

Denver may be tempted to take Jackson at 12 if Sanchez is gone.

19. Bucs, OLB Brian Cushing, USC

It's finally time to rebuild the Tampa Bay defense.

20. Lions, OT Michael Oher, Mississippi

If they pass on a tackle at the top, they'll still need someone to block.

21. Eagles, RB Knowshon Moreno, Georgia

Moreno fits the Brian Westbrook mold.

22. Vikings, WR Hakeem Nicks, North Carolina

The Vikings need a playmaker to take some of the load off Adrian Peterson.

23. Patriots, DE Everett Brown, Florida State

The undersized Brown would give them some versatility in their 3-4.

24. Falcons, DT Peria Jerry, Mississippi

The Falcons are overhauling the defense and start with the middle.

25. Dolphins, CB Darius Butler, UConn

Butler is extremely athletic and fills a big need.

26. Ravens, ILB Rey Maualuga, USC

Ray Lewis is still here, but his successor could be on the way.

27. Colts, DT Evander Hood, Missouri

He is a good fit for their scheme.

28. Bills, OT Eben Britton, Arizona

After trading Jason Peters, the Bills need to get a tackle early.

29. Giants, WR Kenny Britt, Rutgers

Britt has the size and speed the Giants covet now that Plaxico Burress is gone.

30. Titans, CB Vontae Davis, Illinois

He'd have been better off staying for his senior year.

31. Cardinals, RB Donald Brown, Connecticut

Ken Whisenhunt knows he needs to improve the running game. This is a start.

32. Steelers, CB Alphonso Smith, Wake Forest

Smith is only 5-9, but he's a ballhawk.
