An All-American for the Cougars, Oliver had 5.5 sacks and 73 tackles in his sophomore season. He has a chance to be a dominant defensive tackle and perhaps even the top pick in the draft.

The Colts took guard Quenton Nelson sixth overall in 2018 but could still add to the offensive line with Little as they continue their rebuild. Adding a premier pass rusher is also a good possibility.

Arizona is set with the pass rush between Chandler Jones and Markus Golden, but the latter is returning from injury as he enters his fourth season. If the Cardinals decide to move on, this draft has plenty of pass-rushing talent. Gary had 5.5 sacks and 58 tackles last season for the Wolverines.

The clock is ticking on Ryan Tannehill. He needs a big 2018 season to remain the long-term signal caller in Miami. Lock has a huge arm but really needs to harness it, peaking at just a 57.8 percent completion rate in 2017. The development of his accuracy under a new offensive coordinator this season will determine if he can stick as an early first-round draft prospect.

The Jets\’ dominant defensive line of years past is no more, so they must try to rebuild it. Lawrence resembles former Jet Sheldon Richardson\’s potential with 8.5 sacks in two seasons at Clemson while listed at 6-5, 340 pounds.

Tackle remains a major need for the Bengals, who acquired the aged Cordy Glenn for left tackle and moved Jake Fisher over to the right side this season. Williams has the potential to answer the problems playing at either spot.

Alex Smith has some nice weapons to work with, including Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson and Jordan Reed. However, all three have their share of questions, including injuries. Brown had 75 receptions for 1,252 yards and 11 scores for the Rebels last season.

Former first-round pick Vernon Hargreaves hasn\’t developed the way the Bucs hoped, and Brent Grimes is approaching the end of his career. Baker had three picks and 44 tackles last season, along with nine passes defensed.

New Lions head coach Matt Patricia is still working to transition Detroit\’s defensive personnel, and Ferrell is a good fit. He would have been a first-round pick if he declared this year after finishing with 9.5 sacks last season.

Garett Bolles is a building block for Denver at left tackle, but it remains to be seen what Jared Veldheer has left. Adams is one of the top prospects in a deep tackle class.

The Bears are developing a solid front seven, and Davis could be the final piece. He had 8.5 sacks and 69 tackles in his sophomore season at Alabama and is a towering presence at 6-7, 300-plus pounds.

Seattle is comfortable with Shaquill Griffin but certainly needs more depth in the secondary. Arguably the top corner prospect heading into the 2018 season, Williams had six picks last season.

Oakland drafted three defensive linemen this year to give Khalil Mack some help, but the temptation of a loaded defensive line class next year might be too much to pass up. Wilkins had five sacks and 60 tackles last season, showing the ability to play the pass and the run.

The Giants had the opportunity to find a long-term replacement for Eli Manning this year but opted for Saquon Barkley instead. 2019 could be the year with Herbert. He hasn\’t put up big numbers in Oregon\’s run-first offense, but he did complete more than 67 percent of his passes last season, fitting the West Coast scheme.

The Cowboys took Leighton Vander Esch to replace Anthony Hitchens in this year\’s draft and could look toward another linebacker to be Sean Lee\’s long-term replacement. White had a staggering 133 tackles in 2017.

Baltimore addressed its receiver need by adding Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead, though it remains to be seen how that group meshes. Samuel played only three games due to injury last season but will vault up the draft with a healthy 2018. He has Odell Beckham-like ability when he gets his hands on the ball.

If the Packers want to find a long-term replacement for Aaron Rodgers, who will be 35 in December, the 2019 draft is a great opportunity with two first-round picks. Patterson transferred from Ole Miss to Michigan, where he will get tutoring from Jim Harbaugh this season.

Carolina continues to rebuild its offensive line, and next year\’s draft is a great chance to make it better. Benzschawel is considered the best guard prospect in the class at this stage.

Josh Allen is coming off of two excellent seasons for the Wildcats with a combined 14 sacks at linebacker. The 49ers have had off-field concerns with 2017 first-round pick Reuben Foster, who is set to miss two games this season for violating the league\’s substance abuse policy.

A short extension didn\’t prove that Jacksonville thinks Blake Bortles is the long-term answer at quarterback. The accurate Stidham has completed 67 percent of his passes between Baylor and Auburn.

Houston made some offseason moves on the offensive line, but it\’s still a major concern going into 2018. That\’s especially an issue with Deshaun Watson returning from knee surgery. Next year will be a great chance to address the line for good with a tackle like Edwards.

Another Clemson defensive lineman? Bryant had a breakout 2017 season with 8.5 sacks and has the ability to help Jurrell Casey in Tennessee.

Grier very well could be the top pick in next year\’s draft if things go his way. An accurate playmaker, he threw for nearly 3,500 yards in 11 games last season but was sidelined for the last few games with a finger injury. The Chargers could be in the market for a young quarterback with Philip Rivers approaching the end of his career.

Tevin Coleman is a free agent after this season, while Devonta Freeman is starting to develop some wear and tear. Love is the Vegas front-runner for the Heisman after rushing for more than 2,100 yards last season and could be a solid addition.

Linebacker looks like the biggest need on a loaded Eagles roster. Jennings had six tackles for loss and 41 overall tackles despite somewhat limited playing time last season.

The Chiefs tried to address the pass rush with the addition of Breeland Speaks in this year\’s draft, but it still remains to be seen what they will do with Dee Ford and the high-priced Justin Houston after this year. Allen could add more beef to the line and allow Speaks to focus on the rush. He had an amazing 100 tackles and four sacks last season.

Ben Roethlisberger has been dreaming of a significant threat at tight end for years. Jesse James and Vance McDonald have been solid, but Fant brings bigger upside. Fant is considered the top prospect at the position after catching 11 touchdowns for the Hawkeyes last year.

Stefon Diggs is in a walk year, so the Vikes could be looking at his replacement. Sills had 60 receptions for 980 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, showing himself to be an elite red zone target at 6-3.

New England rarely gives a long look at early-round receivers, but that could change if the current crop doesn’t pan out in 2018. Julian Edelman is getting toward the end of his career and is set for a four-game suspension, while Jordan Matthews is just trying to revive his career in New England. Richards missed much of last season with a knee injury but had 934 yards receiving in his freshman year and brings big upside.

Bush is undersized at 5-11, but he proved to be an elite contributor last season with 95 tackles and 5.5 sacks. The Rams have seemingly gone all in for 2018, but linebacker looks like their weakest spot heading into the season.
