The Los Angeles Rams shook up the draft last week by trading for the No. 1 choice. The Rams, who ranked 32nd in total offense and 32nd in passing offense, will draft a quarterback in the first round for the first time since taking Sam Bradford No. 1 overall in 2010. That changes things for the Dallas Cowboys, who could lose a shot at drafting a quarterback but could have the top three defensive players on the board at No. 4.
1. Los Angeles — Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State: He becomes the first non-FBS player selected No. 1 overall since the Cowboys took Tennessee State’s Ed “Too Tall” Jones in 1974.
2. Cleveland — Jared Goff, QB, Cal: The Browns will use a fifth first-round choice on a QB since their rebirth in 1999.
3. San Diego — Laremy Tunsil, OT, Mississippi: The Chargers have lots of money tied up in right tackle Joe Barksdale and left tackle King Dunlap and a coaching staff on the hot seat, so DeForest Buckner or Jalen Ramsey might end up being the choice.

4. Dallas — Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State: Orlando Scandrick is coming back from knee surgery, and Brandon Carr costs too much. Ramsey also would allow the Cowboys to keep Byron Jones at safety.
5. Jacksonville — Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State: The Jaguars ranked 24th in total defense and had only 36 sacks last season.
6. Baltimore — DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon: He would replace Chris Canty after the Ravens declined to pick up the defensive end’s option.
7. San Francisco — Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis: The 49ers haven’t drafted a QB in the first round since taking Alex Smith in 2005.
8. Philadelphia — Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State: They tried the free agency route with DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, and it didn’t work. New coach Doug Pederson needs a feature back.
9. Tampa Bay — Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida: Although the Bucs signed Brent Grimes and Josh Robinson in free agency, they still could use another corner.
10. NY Giants — Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame: Ereck Flowers had six sacks and eight penalties last season. He needs to move to the right side.
11. Chicago — Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson: The Bears, in their second year playing the 3-4, need pass rushers after making 35 sacks last season.
12. New Orleans — Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville: The Saints ranked 31st in total defense last season.
13. Miami — Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State: The Dolphins want to add speed to their defense, and Lee ran a 4.43 at the combine. He would replace Jelani Jenkins at WLB.
14. Oakland — William Jackson III, CB, Houston: The Raiders, who ranked 26th against the pass last season, swung and missed in drafting CB D.J. Hayden in the first round in 2013. So they try again with a UH CB.
15. Tennessee — Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State: Marcus Mariota, the No. 2 overall pick last season, was sacked 38 times in 12 games.
16. Detroit — Laquon Treadwell, WR, Mississippi: Taylor Decker is a possibility here, but the Lions need to replace Calvin Johnson.
17. Atlanta — Reggie Ragland, ILB, Alabama: The Falcons likely would rather have Darron Lee because of his speed, but they need linebacker help.
18. Indianapolis — Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky: The Colts need pass-rushing help and offensive line help, so Taylor Decker could be the choice if there are concerns about Spence’s off-field issues.
19. Buffalo — A’Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama: Kyle Williams, who turns 33 this summer, is coming off meniscus surgery.
20. NY Jets — Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia: The Jets had 39 sacks last season but still need an edge rusher.
21. Washington — Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State: The Redskins face Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr. in the division. They need all the corners they can get.
22. Houston — Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor: He gives Brock Osweiler a speedy threat to go with DeAndre Hopkins.
23. Minnesota — Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame: The Vikings have not had a 1,000-yard receiver since Sidney Rice in 2009.
24. Cincinnati — Josh Doctson, WR, TCU: The Bengals need a playmaker to pair with A.J. Green, giving Andy Dalton another weapon.
25. Pittsburgh — Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson: It seems a no-brainer that the Steelers will take the best available corner. Check their roster.
26. Seattle — Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State: The Seahawks have to find a replacement for Russell Okung.
27. Green Bay — Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama: The Packers are getting old on the defensive line.
28. Kansas City — Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana: The Chiefs drafted Eric Fisher No. 1 overall in 2013, but he hasn’t come close to being the answer.
29. Arizona — Keanu Neal, FS, Florida: The Cardinals’ secondary will be solid with this addition.
30. Carolina — Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson: Despite 44 sacks, the Panthers could use another pass rusher.
31. Denver — Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State: The Broncos need a quarterback more than they need anything else, and they can’t afford to wait until the end of the second round to get one.
Note: New England forfeited the 29th overall pick.
