Heading into the NFL scouting combine, which starts this week in Indianapolis, our top 10 this week is a mock draft for the first choices in the first round.

Heading into the NFL scouting combine, which starts this week in Indianapolis, our top 10 this week is a mock draft for the first choices in the first round.

Chiefs

-- Star Lotulelei, DL, Utah. Not an exciting pick for a team that is ailing on offense but better safe than sorry here.

Jacksonville

-- Demontre Moore, DE, Texas A The Jaguars were last in the league in sacks last season, so their pass rush could use this boost.

Oakland

-- Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida. The Raiders were a mess on defense last year, exception when they played the Chiefs. This is the first step toward fixing that.

Philadelphia

-- Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama. The Eagles need to repair a sagging secondary.

Detroit

-- Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State. For all they've invested in their defensive line, the Lions could still use more help there.

Cleveland

-- Jarvis Jones, LB, Georgia. The Browns continue the trend of this draft by picking another defensive player.

Arizona

-- Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A Cardinals quarterbacks were sacked 58 times last season, so Arizona will move quickly here.

Buffalo

-- Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia. The Bills break the logjam at quarterback. But will they go for Smith or Ryan Nassib, who played for Doug Marrone at Syracuse?

New York Jets

-- Barkevious Mingo, LB, Louisiana State. The Jets, like the Chiefs, need help on offense but also could use talent at linebacker.

Tennessee -- Chance Warmack, G, Alabama. Here's some much-needed help on the offensive line for the Titans.
