The Bee's Matthew Barrows offers his predictions for today's first round of the NFL draft:
NO. TEAM PICK POS. COLLEGE
1. Chiefs Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan
Fisher follows Joe Staley's path from Central Michigan to the NFL's trenches.
2. Jaguars Luke Joeckel OT Texas A&M
Joeckel and Fisher are similar talents; Joeckel might be more NFL-ready because of a higher level of competition at Texas A&M.
3. Raiders Sharrif Floyd DT Florida
The only position the Raiders shouldn't take here: quarterback. Better ones will be available next year. Trading back with a team that covets Dion Jordan also is a scenario.
4. Eagles Dion Jordan OLB Oregon
Chip Kelly adds a former Ducks pupil, one who can rush from the edge in the Eagles' new 3-4 scheme.
5. Lions Ezekiel Ansah DE BYU
Detroit finds someone to replace Cliff Avril and add a bit of punch to its pass rush.
6. Browns Dee Milliner CB Alabama
Don't believe the rumors that Milliner will slide on draft day. Instead he'll make a solid bookend at cornerback with incumbent Joe Haden.
7. Cardinals Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma
How bad has Arizona's offensive-line situation become? The Cardinals added Chilo Rachal in the offseason.
8. Bills Chance Warmack OG Alabama
One of the signs there's not a lot of talent at the top of the draft: Guards make it into the top 10.
9. Jets Tavon Austin WR West Virginia
The electric-quick Austin distracts Jets fans from the fact that Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow still are on the roster but Darrelle Revis is not. This might put Austin out of reach for a 49ers trade-up scenario.
10. Titans Jonathan Cooper OG North Carolina
The Titans not only get a guard who can help them become more of a power team but one who is quick enough to get in front of Chris Johnson on long runs.
11. Chargers D.J. Fluker OT Alabama
When in doubt, go with an offensive lineman. The Chargers certainly could stand to bulk up their pass protection; trade-down scenario also possible.
12. Dolphins Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame
Eifert might be the safest pick in the draft, and he gives ascending quarterback Ryan Tannehill another target.
13. Jets Barkevious Mingo OLB LSU
Fast and fluid but not overly powerful, Mingo would give the Jets someone they haven't had in a long time - an exciting pass rusher off the edge.
14. Panthers Star Lotulelei DT Utah
Any team in need of a powerful and quick interior lineman will carefully watch how far Lotulelei, who was red-flagged for medical reasons, falls in the first round.
15. Saints D.J. Hayden CB Houston
New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan could use a lot of help. When you face the Falcons twice a year, shoring up the cornerback position is a must.
16. Rams Kenny Vaccaro S Texas
A former safety himself, coach Jeff Fisher continues to build a defense that aspires to rival the 49ers' and Seahawks'. Plus, someone has to replace Craig Dahl.
17. Steelers Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia
Once considered the top pass rusher in the draft, Jones is falling because of disappointing workouts. A smart team like the Steelers catches him.
18. Cowboys Sheldon Richardson DL Missouri
You'd have to think that the 49ers, who have had excellent luck with Missouri products, would consider trading up if Richardson dropped this far.
19. Giants Cornellius Carradine DE Florida State
The 49ers and Giants have been closely eyeing this pass rusher in recent weeks. "Tank" is another player the 49ers could leap ahead to snag.
20. Bears Alec Ogletree LB Georgia
The Bears need a replacement for Brian Urlacher who can pair with Lance Briggs.
21. Bengals Jonathan Cyprien S Fla. International
This might be a little early for the small-school safety, but the Bengals have a big need at the position, and Cyprien is a big hitter with good range.
22. Rams Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee
Patterson is raw but perhaps more talented than any wideout in this draft. He provides immediate impact as a returner, too.
23. Vikings Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina
The Vikings have a fondness for interior defensive linemen named Williams. Like his predecessors, he has a nice combination of size and speed.
24. Colts Xavier Rhodes CB Florida State
Indianapolis needs a tall, strong cornerback in a division with physical receivers like Andre Johnson and Justin Blackmon.
25. Vikings Justin Hunter WR Tennessee
What kind of team would take a risk on a wide receiver who's still recovering from a torn ACL? One that watched its own ACL patient run wild last season.
26. Packers Menelik Watson OT Florida State
The run on offensive linemen continues with the Packers, who are about to dump a lot of money into Aaron Rodgers and must protect that investment.
27. Texans Keenan Allen WR Cal
Allen's dud of a workout causes him to fall. The Texans, however, see the strong-handed receiver as the perfect complement to Andre Johnson.
28. Broncos Datone Jones DL UCLA
John Elway goes with the best player available, and Jones can either play outside or, more likely, inside along the Broncos' defensive line.
29. Patriots DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson
Hopkins isn't flashy, but he's a good route runner who is strong after the catch. He could quickly become a trusted receiver for Tom Brady.
30. Falcons Desmond Trufant CB Washington
The Falcons aren't shy about making dramatic draft-day moves, and they could swoop in for Jordan at No. 3. If not, they hang tight and address their biggest need - cornerback.
31. 49ers Eric Reid S LSU
This is why the 49ers may trade up. If they don't, there's no one here they couldn't grab at No. 34. Reid is big and versatile, and he'd be expected to step in at Dashon Goldson's former spot at some point during his rookie season.
32. Ravens Matt Elam S Florida
The Super Bowl champs must replace Ed Reed - among others - and do so with this small but hard-hitting safety.
