Rumour has it that the Cleveland Browns could be interested in taking Ryan Tannehill at No. 4 in the draft. That could shake up the first round in more than a few ways.

1. Indianapolis Colts — Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

If you expected a change here, you’re crazy.

2. Washington Redskins (from St. Louis) — Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Have they started printing RG3 Redskins jerseys yet?

3. Minnesota Vikings — Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Could a team in love with Tannehill throw enough at the Vikes in a trade? Unlikely.

4. Cleveland Browns — Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Colt McCoy has not impressed many during his tenure in Cleveland.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Even after signing Eric Wright, there are still question marks at the cornerback spot.

6. St. Louis Rams (from Washington) — Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

A trade back from here is also a possibility if the price is right.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars — Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

If Tannehill is still on the board, they will be getting a lot of trade offers coming in.

8. Miami Dolphins — Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

Miss out on Tannehill so will have to address other needs, like right tackle.

9. Carolina Panthers — Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State

In need of a big run-stuffer up the middle, even after taking two last year.

10. Buffalo Bills — Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Things are looking good on the defensive side of the line; lost starting tackle Bell.

11. Kansas City Chiefs — Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Richardson could go much higher; would be great insurance for Jamaal Charles.

12. Seattle Seahawks — Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

Pass rush is in need of an upgrade; Ingram could be the top DE selected too.

13. Arizona Cardinals — David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

DeCastro is rated head and shoulders above the next best guard in the draft.

14. Dallas Cowboys — Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

Teaming him with Jay Ratliff would overwhelm inside of opposing lines.

15. Philadelphia Eagles — Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

If there’s one thing that Philly loves to do, it’s build along the lines.

16. New York Jets — Courtney Upshaw, DE-OLB, Alabama

Have gotten by with patchwork rush ends recently. Upshaw would give them pedigree.

17. Cincinnati Bengals (from Oakland) — Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

Need another quality CB to contend with pass teams around the league.

18. San Diego Chargers — Luke Kuelchy, MLB, Boston College

We could be seeing Kuelchy’s name getting called much higher than this.

19. Chicago Bears — Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

Character issues are there, but Chicago is stocked with defensive leaders to clean him up.

20. Tennessee Titans — Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

Has a great mesh of size and athleticism that could see him rise up a lot of boards.

21. Cincinnati Bengals — Whitney Mercilus, DE-OLB, Illinois

Would be an apt replacement for the traded-away Keith Rivers.

22. Cleveland Browns (from Atlanta) — Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Like the Bengals last year, the Browns get offensive hookup of the future in the first round.

23. Detroit Lions — Mark Barron, S, Alabama

In desperate need of an upgrade in their defensive secondary.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers — Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia

Both sides of their line are in need of help. Glenn will help with his versatility.

25. Denver Broncos — Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

Would start opposite Ryan Clady, keeping Peyton Manning upright.

26. Houston Texans — Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

Need a burner to take the pressure off of Andre Johnson.

27. New England Patriots (from New Orleans) — Donta Hightower, MLB, Alabama

Playmakers needed on the defensive side of the ball.

28. Green Bay Packers — Andre Branch, DE, Clemson

Clay Matthews can always use some help creating pressure on QBs.

29. Baltimore Ravens — Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

Need some youth and depth on the O-line after losing Matt Birk.

30. San Francisco 49ers — Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

Coach Harbaugh takes one of his old charges to form a lethal two-TE set.

31. New England Patriots — Nick Perry, DE, USC

Always a chance they’ll either trade down, or go off the board with their pick.

32. New York Giants – Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

Brandon Jacobs is gone and Ahmad Bradshaw has issues staying healthy.
