West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith (13) throws a pass during the combine. Could the Bills be interested in him with the No. 8 pick? / Brian Spurlock, USA TODAY Sports

1. Kansas City Chiefs

OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M: The Chiefs are a potential landing spot for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. Joeckel would offer him or any QB good protection.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars

DE Bjoern Werner, Florida State: Werner proved himself as one of the best 4-3 ends at the combine, a desperate need for the Jaguars.

3. Oakland Raiders

DT Star Lotulelei, Utah: Pending further diagnoses on his heart condition, Lotulelei could dominate the line of scrimmage.

4. Philadelphia Eagles

DE/OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon: Jordan is a natural fit for the 3-4 defense and a good fit for Chip Kelly, his former college coach.

5. Detroit Lions

CB Dee Milliner, Alabama: Milliner, the top cornerback in the draft, will be a Week 1 starter.

6. Cleveland Browns

DE Barkevious Mingo, LSU: Mingo's combine workout awed NFL teams. He would fill a pair of defensive needs for the Browns.

7. Arizona Cardinals

OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan: Quarterback is a consideration, but Fisher is too good to pass up.

8. Buffalo Bills

QB Geno Smith, West Virginia: Smith's solid combine workout makes the Bills feel confident about his big upside.

9. New York Jets

G Chance Warmack, Alabama: A pass rusher will get consideration, but the Jets soon might need two starting guards.

10. Tennessee Titans

DE Ezekiel Ansah, Brigham Young: Tennessee's defensive ends generated little in the way of a pass rush last season. Ansah offers star potential.

11. San Diego Chargers

DE/OLB Damontre Moore, Texas A&M: Moore would bookend with 2012's first-round pick, Melvin Ingram, and form a deadly pass-rushing duo.

12. Miami Dolphins

DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida: Wideout is a big need, but Floyd would improve an already-solid defense and offer a hometown flavor.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri: Uber-athletic, gap-penetrating Richardson is a perfect fit for Greg Schiano's defense.

14. Carolina Panthers

WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee: Patterson would take over as the Panthers' playmaker as Steve Smith's career winds down.

15. New Orleans Saints

OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia: Jones might be a medical risk, but defensive coordinator Rob Ryan would get the most from his ability.

16. St. Louis Rams

G Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina: If rock-solid Cooper is available, it's a no-brainer.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers

S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas: The Steelers prefer to go offense in the draft, but Vaccaro offers insurance for aging Troy Polamalu.

18. Dallas Cowboys

DE Datone Jones, UCLA: Strongside linebacker is the priority, but Jones offers the athleticism to thrive as a one-gap tackle in Monte Kiffin's defense.

19. New York Giants

OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma: The Giants must address the tackle position, and Johnson comes with tremendous upside.

20. Chicago Bears

DT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State: The Bears must draft at least one starting defensive tackle. Hankins could be a mainstay for years.

21. Cincinnati Bengals

OT D.J. Fluker, Alabama: Free agent Andre Smith might be too pricey, so the franchise could turn to another Alabama alum.

22. St. Louis Rams

WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia: Austin's playmaking skills on the indoor carpet in St. Louis would further remedy the team's lethargic offense.

23. Minnesota Vikings

WR Keenan Allen, California: Allen offers a bigger-bodied wide receiver with sure hands to pair with speedy Percy Harvin.

24. Indianapolis Colts

DT Jesse Williams, Alabama: Williams' ability to play multiple positions would help the Colts in their 3-4 defense.

25. Seattle Seahawks

LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia: The speedy linebacker might slide because of off-field troubles, including a recent DUI charge. But he has the talent to start as a rookie.

26. Green Bay Packers

RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama: The Packers need a ballcarrier capable of pounding opponents on the interior, which is Lacy's specialty.

27. Houston Texans

LB Kevin Minter, LSU: Minter would bring intensity and stability to Houston's run defense.

28. Denver Broncos

CB Desmond Trufant, Washington: It's time to acquire a top, young cornerback behind Champ Bailey.

29. New England Patriots

S Matt Elam, Florida:Free safety has been a trouble spot for the Pats. Elam's range and pass cover skills offer the perfect remedy.

30. Atlanta Falcons

TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame: Eifert is a fine replacement if Tony Gonzalez can't be coaxed into returning for another season.

31. San Francisco 49ers

NT Sylvester Williams, North Carolina: Underrated Williams would be an immediate upgrade at nose tackle.

32. Baltimore Ravens

ILB Manti Te'o, Notre Dame: Te'o is a terrific run defender who plays with Ravens-like intensity.
