2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 Midampub Prospects DC Pro Sports

Updated: 1/2/2017

Cam Newton, QB - Auburn If a new collective barganing agreement is put in place to have a rookie cap, then Newton isn't as big of a risk with a whole lot of reward potential.
Nick Fairley, DT - Auburn Denver needs to upgrade the defense everywhere. Fairley can be a dominant force on the line and be part of the core that rebuilds the unit.
Von Miller, LB - Texas AM Buffalo needs to get to the quarterback and Miller is one of the best in the draft.
Da'Quan Bowers, DE - Clemson The Bengals need to add someone opposite Dunlap and Bowers should provide the pass rush they need to make things tough on opposing quarterbacks.
Patrick Peterson, CB - LSU They will need to grab a OLB in round two if Miller doesn't fall here. At least they get a top tier CB to improve the pass defense.
AJ Green, WR - Georgia They can get some DL help in round two. They can't get a talent like Green there. He should improve the passing game immediately.
Prince Amukamara, CB - Nebraska Does he replace Clements this year or next? He should improve one of the leagues worst passing defenses.
Blaine Gabbert, QB - Missouri Tennessee needs someone to replace Vince Young and be the next leader of this franchise.
Tyron Smith, OT - USC Dallas needs to get younger up front and rebuild the OL. Smith should improve the running game and help protect Romo.
Marcell Dareus, DT - Alabama Dareus is a stud and the Skins luck out getting him here. He should challenge the veterans from day one for the starting job.
Robert Quinn, DE - North Carolina Houston needs an upgrade and more depth opposite Mario Williams. Quinn should make an impact immediately for the Texans.
Mike Pouncey, C - Florida Minnesota can use Pouncey anywhere on the line. They need to continue opening holes for Peterson while they protect whoever they get to throw the ball.
Akeem Ayers, OLB - UCLA The Lions need a playmaker at LB. Working behind Suh who should see more double teams, Ayers should get a ton of opportunities.
Julio Jones, WR - Alabama They pick up a playmaker for Bradford other than just having S-Jax.
Mark Ingram, RB - Alabama Getting Ingram seals the fate of Brown and Williams. It also gives the Dolphins one of the best players in the draft.
Aldon Smith, DE - Missouri Someone has to get to the QB and the hope is Smith is capable of consitently getting it done.
Ryan Kerrigan, DE - Purdue Kerrigan should be another young defensive piece that should keep the Patriots at the top of the league for awhile.
Adrian Clayborn, DE - Iowa Clayborn should improve the depth and quality of the DL in San Diego.
Nate Solder, OT - Colorado The Giants need to get back to pounding the ball and it starts up front. They should have their pick here of Solder, Carimi and Castonzo.
JJ Watt, DE - Wisconsin Watt is expected to make an impact immediately as a pass rusher.
Anthony Castonzo, OT - Boston College This should make the run game better and allow the Chiefs to possibly move Albert to the right side.
Gabe Carimi, OT - Wisconsin It's time the Colts started taking care of the people who take care of Peyton and the running game. Carimi will start from day one.
Rahim Moore, S - UCLA Philly needs a playmaker at the safety spot. Moore is the best of the group this season.
Cameron Heyward, DE - Ohio State He should help improve an already solid defense. He will bring some versatility to the unit.
Jimmy Smith, CB - Colorado The pass defense was horrible. Smith is needed to get this unit on track. They could look at one of the other corners however like Williams or Harris.
Aaron Williams, CB - Texas The Ravens need to start rebuilding that secondary. Williams could get a chance to start immediately.
Cameron Jordan, DE - Cal The Falcons could use some quality depth at the end. Abraham is getting up there and his replacement needs groomed.
Corey Liuget, DT - Illinois Here is a fantastic value pick from the Patriots. The depth is improved and they add their starter of the future.
Danny Watkins, OG - Baylor The Bears need some youth up front because Cutler got hammered all season and the running game just wasn't good enough. Watkins could replace Chris Williams or push him to the right side.
Muhammad Wilkerson, DE - Temple The DL is getting up there and Wilkerson has energized legs. He also is solid at getting to the passer which the coach will like.
Derek Sherrod, OT - Mississippi State The Steelers need an upgrade up front. Sherrod will challenge to start immediately.
Justin Houston, DE - Georgia Houston could line up outside opposite Matthews or replace Jenkins sometime soon.
