1. Cleveland Browns (0-7) – DeShaun Watson (QB/Clemson)
The Browns may be forced to start their fourth quarterback of the season next week if Josh McCown isn’t healthy. Even with a healthy signal caller, nobody currently on the Browns roster is a long-term solution. Cleveland is going to yet again need to hit the reset button and rebuild. Starting with Joe Thomas would be a start.
2. San Francisco 49ers (1-6) – Brad Kaaya (QB/Miami FL)
Colin Kaepernick has supplanted Blaine Gabbert, but he hasn’t fared much better at quarterback. San Francisco is going to go through a ton of change in the front office this offseason as Trent Baalke no longer has job security. Chip Kelly may be fired as well.
3. Chicago Bears (1-6) – DeShone Kizer (QB/Notre Dame)
The Bears have reportedly like Brian Hoyer more than Jay Cutler, but neither man is the quarterback of the future in the Windy City. Perhaps the man from nearby South Bend, Ind. is the solution.
4. Carolina Panthers (1-5) – Leonard Fournette (RB/LSU)
With Jonathan Stewart getting older, it’s time for the Panthers to find another runner to take pressure off of Cam Newton. Fournette has been considered the best running back prospect since Adrian Peterson and for good reason. Just look at what he did last week:
5. New York Jets (2-5) – Cam Robinson (OT/Alabama)
The Jets are now out of position to get one of the top signal callers, so instead they can focus on finding a new blindside protector since D’Brickashaw Ferguson retired.
6. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4) – Myles Garrett (DE/Texas A&M)
The Jaguars need to fortify their offensive line, but with Robinson gone, they will go for the best player available instead. Garrett is easily a top three talent, so Jacksonville getting him at No. 6 is a bit of a steal.
7. New Orleans Saints (2-4) – Derek Barnett (DE/Tennessee)
The Saints pass rush yet again failed to get any push, registering zero sacks against Kansas City and only hitting him three times.
8. Tennessee Titans (3-4) – Jamal Adams (CB/S/LSU)
Tennessee’s defense yet again struggled to contain opposing wide receivers, this time allowing T.Y. Hilton to have a massive first half for Indianapolis.
9. Indianapolis Colts (3-4) – Charles Harris (DE/OLB/Missouri)
Despite scoring a defensive touchdown last week, Robert Mathis has had a bad 2016 overall. At age 35 and in the final year of his deal, Mathis’ career may be over.
10. San Diego Chargers (3-4) – Jonathan Allen (DE/DT/Alabama)
Brandon Mebane is a fine nose tackle, but Corey Liuget has been terrible. San Diego may opt to release him this offseason, as doing so will save them $5 million.
11. Cincinnati Bengals (3-4) – Jabrill Peppers (SS/Michigan)
Shawn Williams has been a decent safety this season, but George Iloka has struggled. Some people see Peppers as an outside linebacker at the NFL level, but being that he weighs 205 pounds, I can’t see that happening.
12. Miami Dolphins (3-4) – Tim Williams (DE/OLB/Alabama)
With Cameron Wake and Mario Williams both on the wrong side of 30, Miami needs to find younger edge rushers to get to the quarterback.
13. Baltimore Ravens (3-4) – Dalvin Cook (RB/Florida State)
Terrance West had a decent couple of weeks before nosediving against the Jets and for a guy that the Ravens allegedly love in Kenneth Dixon, they sure aren’t using him.
14. Tennessee Titans (3-4) – JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR/USC)
Tajae Sharpe has been unable to turn a strong preseason into a solid regular season. Meanwhile, Kendall Wright is in the last year of his deal and Andre Johnson’s corpse is getting playing time.
15. Arizona Cardinals (3-3-1) – O.J. Howard (TE/Alabama)
A bit of a reach, but play at tight end for the Cardinals this season has been horrible. Jermaine Gresham may not be retained.
16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3) – Mike McGlinchey (OT/Notre Dame)
Donovan Smith is marginally better than he was last season, but he is still a horrible tackle. The Bucs need a better option for Jameis Winston’s blindside protector.
17. Buffalo Bills (4-3) – Mike Williams (WR/Clemson)
The only good wide receiver on this roster is Sammy Watkins, who is constantly battling injury.
18. Detroit Lions (4-3) – Caleb Brantley (DT/Florida)
A’Shawn Robinson has struggled as a rookie and Haloti Ngata has declined significantly this season. Detroit is still searching for their next Ndamukong Suh-Nick Fairley combo on the defensive line.
19. Washington Redskins (4-3) – Jalen Tabor (CB/Florida)
Bashaud Breeland has been an absolute liability for Washington this season. If Tabor is available here, it’s a steal.
20. New York Giants (4-3) – Jarrad Davis (LB/Florida)
Jonathan Casillas has been terrible this season, especially in coverage. General Manager Jerry Reese notoriously avoids linebackers, but the position can only be ignored for so long.
21. Houston Texans (4-3) – Malik McDowell (DE/DT/Michigan State)
Once J.J. Watt went down, the Texans showed how little depth they have at defensive end behind him.
22. Cleveland Browns (0-7) – Marlon Humphrey (CB/Alabama)
Jamar Taylor has played well this season, but he is in the final year of his deal. If he leaves (and considering this is Cleveland, who would blame him?) the Browns will once again be stuck looking for a new cornerback to play across from Joe Haden.
23. Green Bay Packers (4-2) – Christian McCaffrey (RB/Stanford)
Eddie Lacy is fat again and with him in the final year of his deal, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Green Bay move on. Their offense, however, has stalled this season so they need to find a new running back.
24. Denver Broncos (5-2) – Ethan Pocic (G/C/LSU)
Matt Paradis has been the best center in football this season, but Michael Scofield and Max Garcia have both been less than spectacular.
25. Atlanta Falcons (4-3) – Raekwon McMillan (LB/Ohio State)
The Falcons linebackers have been absolutely horrible on run defense. Sean Weatherspoon will be a free agent after the season.
26. Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) – Desmond King (CB/Iowa)
Marcus Peters is a solid cornerback, but the Chiefs have nothing else behind him. Steven Nelson has been a liability.
27. Oakland Raiders (5-2) – Nick Chubb (RB/Georgia)
Oakland has played better as of late, but there is still concern at running back where DeAndre Washington failed to capitalize while Latavius Murray was out. Murray is a free agent at season’s end.
28. Philadephia Eagles (4-2) – Adoree’ Jackson (CB/USC)
The secondary is a mess in Philadelphia, which has been masked by great play up front.
29. Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) – Reuben Foster (LB/Alabama)
Lawrence Timmons will be a free agent after the season and with him on the wrong side of 30, the Steelers may look for a younger replacement.
30. Dallas Cowboys (5-1) – Tre’Davious White (CB/LSU)
Morris Claiborne has finally lived up to potential, but (and Brandon Carr) are free agents after the season.
31. Seattle Seahawks (4-1-1) – Roderick Johnson (OT/Florida State)
Both Bradley Sowell and Garry Gillam have been among the worst starting tackles in the NFL. A bad diagnosis if one tackle was starting for a team, brutal that they both are.
32. New England Patriots (6-1) – Courtland Sutton (WR/SMU)
With no clear-cut top receiver in New England, the Patriots may look for a new weapon for Tom Brady.
