You should just be thankful we waited this long before they made an appearance.

1) Detroit Lions (1-7)

DR: Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss - Stafford has rapidly regressed due to poor offensive line play and terrible coaching. Only one of those can be fixed in the draft, and luckily the top lineman is also the top prospect.

2) San Diego Chargers (2-7)

DR: Ronnie Stanley, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame - This is a tad high for Stanley, but the fact of the matter is that Rivers cannot do anything with the piss poor offensive line that has been thrown together in front of him.

3) Cleveland Browns (2-7)

DR: Joey Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State - I don't think that you can give up on a quarterback who has only started three games, so you may as well bolster the defense which is just bad. Bosa can set the edge in the run and rush the quarterback incredibly well. The Browns desperately need both.

4) Tennessee Titans (2-6)

DR: Vernon Hargreaves, Corner back, Florida - The Titans allow way too many passing yards which puts a lot of pressure on their young quarterback to score points on every drive. Hargreaves is the type of corner who can completely shut down the top receiver and be left on an island.

5) Baltimore Ravens (2-6)

DR: Laquon Treadwell, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss - Questions will linger about his top end speed after a gruesome knee injury last year, but there is no doubt that Treadwell is a top tier receiver. He has got a lot of AJ Green in him and would be a tremendous addition to a woefully lackluster offense.

6) Jacksonville Jaguars (2-6, lol)

DR: Jalen Ramsey, Safety, Florida State - A pass rusher could be an option here, but Ramsey looks like a truly elite talent at safety a la Earl Thomas or Eric Berry. The Jaguars are improving on defense, but a true difference maker in the secondary could send them to the next level.

7) Dallas Cowboys (2-6)

DR: Jaylon Smith, Linebacker, Notre Dame - The Cowboys are not a bad team in any sense of the word. It is just that the injury of Tony Romo has impacted this team so much that they can't stop tripping over themselves. Smith would be a great addition to a solid defense, and would probably see playing time right away with how often Sean Lee is injured.

8) San Francisco 49ers (3-6)

DR: Jared Goff, Quarterback, Cal - It isn't entirely his fault, but Kaepernick has regressed to an almost absurd level in the past two years. Goff has had a bit of an up and down year, but there is little doubt that he has all the makings of a franchise quarterback. Hopefully the Niners give him proper tools to succeed if they do take him.

9) Houston Texans (3-5)

DR: Ezekiel Elliott, Running Back, Ohio State - The Texans are going to have to move on from Arian Foster at some point in the near future. And there really is no point in taking a quarterback as everyone figures O'Brien will want his former quarterback, Hackenberg.

10) Miami Dolphins (3-5)

DR: Emmanuel Ogbah, Defensive End, Oklahoma State - After losing Cameron Wake to a torn Achilles, the Dolphins need to add some talent to the defensive line. Ogbah is athletic enough to play the defensive end or outside linebacker position in the 3-4.

11) Chicago Bears (3-5)

DR: Su'a Cravens, Linebacker/Safety, USC - I could see the Bears moving on from Jay Cutler and selecting a quarterback, but there are no sure fire things in this draft and they'd be creating a lot of dead money by cutting him. Better to keep restocking on the defense.

12) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5)

DR: Shilique Calhoun, Defensive End, Michigan State - Tampa has whiffed on some defensive end prospects over the past five years, but Calhoun could be a guy that turns it around for them. Their defense has been shredded multiple times this year, and in a division with three above average quarterbacks, pass rushers are a must.

13) Washington Redskins (3-5)

DR: Michael Thomas, Wide Receiver, Ohio State - Pierre Garcon is a good receiver, but outside of him the Redskins have almost no good skill players on offense. What he lacks in elite speed, Michael Thomas makes up for in precise route running and tremendous hands.

14) Kansas City Chiefs (3-5)

DR: Paxton Lynch, Quarterback, Memphis - I've tried to defend Alex Smith, but it is becoming more and more clear that the Chiefs need to move on a find themselves a young, franchise quarterback. Paxton Lynch is a fast rising prospect with great height and arm strength.

15) New Orleans Saints (4-5)

DR: Robert Nkemdiche, Defensive End, Ole Miss - A top five athlete who has shown that he needs a lot of work to be an effective pass rusher at the next level. Playing end in a 3-4 scheme might be more suited for his skills.

16) Oakland Raiders (4-4)

DR: Tre'Davious White, Corner back, LSU - The Raiders have all the fire power they need on offense, but their defense is performing at a historically bad level. White would be a perfect building block for a secondary that has been the worst unit on the defense.

17) St. Louis Rams (4-4)

DR: Connor Cook, Quarterback, Michigan State - A wide receiver could be in play her, but the Rams need to find a franchise quarterback to complement Todd Gurley. Cook isn't a finished product yet, but he doesn't have to be a world beater to complement a great defense.

18) Philadelphia Eagles (4-4)

DR: Josh Doctson, Wide Receiver, TCU - It's amazing that the Eagles are even .500 given how average their wide receivers are. Doctson has been lighting up the stat board with his size and speed and would be used in a variety of ways in Chip's offense.

19) Buffalo Bills (4-4)

DR: Leonard Floyd, Linebacker, Georgia - What was once a dominant front seven that generated loads of sacks has regressed in Rex Ryan's first year. Floyd would be be able to come in and inject some youth into an aging defensive front.

20) Seattle Seahawks (4-4)

DR: Taylor Decker, Offensive Tackle, Ohio State - There are doubts that he can play left tackle in the NFL, but Decker would at least be a very solid right tackle and shore up one of the worst offensive lines in pro football.

21) Pittsburgh Steelers (5-4)

DR: Andrew Billings, Defensive Tackle, Baylor - Corner back is a bigger need on this defense, but there really isn't anyone worth taking here. Billings is just too good to pass up here at a position that could use some depth.

22) New York Jets (5-3)

DR: Myles Jack, Linebacker, UCLA - Jack would be a top ten pick if it was for a knee injury that took him out for the whole season. The Jets don't have a whole lot of needs, so they might as well continue to bolster an already suffocating defense.

23) Atlanta Falcons (6-3)

DR: Carl Nassib, Defensive End, Penn State - The current NCAA sack leader would be a sight for sore eyes in Atlanta. Vic Beasley has only generated two sacks, and even if he picks up his play, the Falcons will need more pass rushers.

24) Minnesota Vikings (6-2)

DR: Will Fuller, Wide Receiver, Notre Dame - Fuller has stated that he will return for his senior year, but he is too talented to stay in school. A legit depth threat with some good size, Fuller needs to add some more functional strength to really succeed in the NFL.

25) Indianapolis Colts (4-5)

DR: Vadal Alexander, Offensive Guard, LSU - The Colts need to stop dicking around and get Andrew Luck a decent offensive line, as he has already been forced to play through multiple injuries all year long. Alexander would shore up the middle of the line which has been the biggest weakness.

26) New York Giants (5-4)

DR: A'Shawn Robinson, Defensive Tackle, Alabama - If an edge rusher manages to fall to the Giants, they will probably take them. Regardless, they will need to get some kind of help along the defensive line and generate pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

27) Arizona Cardinals (6-2)

DR: DeForest Buckner, Defensive End, Oregon - The Cardinals have seen more than their fair share of injuries in the front seven. Buckner would add versatility and a cornerstone that the Cardinals can continue to build on.

28) Green Bay Packers (6-2)

DR: Reggie Ragland, Linebacker, Alabama - Green Bay has definitely missed Jordy Nelson, but the defense has really been letting the team down in recent weeks. Ragland would be a tremendous boost in the rush defense.

29) Denver Broncos (7-1)

DR: Jack Conklin, Offensive Tackle, Michigan State - This is a very complete team that really only needs a long team quarterback, but there really aren't any worthy of taking at this juncture. Best thing for the Broncos to do would be to continue to give Peyton as much protection as possible.
30) Cincinnati Bengals (8-0)

DR: Adolphus Washington, Defensive Tackle, Ohio State - If the Bengals have a weakness, it is that they need more talent and depth along the defensive line. Washington would be a great pass rushing and run stuffing tackle in the middle of the defensive line.

31) Carolina Panthers (8-0)

DR: Tyler Boyd, Wide Receiver, Pitt - Boyd hasn't really been able to show it this season because his quarterback play has been awful, but make no mistake about his talent. The Panthers desperately need a true number one receiver for Cam.
