Hundreds of players have new homes after the first month of free agency. As a result, priorities and needs have changed for some of the league's highest-drafting teams.

The Browns, of course, added three big pieces, including two major additions on the offensive line. Unsurprisingly, the panel did not project the Browns to select an offensive lineman with either of their first-round picks or their first of two second-round selections.

Some decided to make some changes. Some choices remained the same.

Here's how Nathan Zegura, Andrew Gribble and Patrick Maks see the first round and the first pick of Day 2 unfolding.

Nathan Zegura, Cleveland Browns Daily host

  1. BROWNS - DL Myles Garrett (Texas A&M): The consensus best and most talented player in this draft will make a dynamic pass rushing duo with Emmanuel Ogbah for new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
  1. 49ers – DL Solomon Thomas (Stanford)
  1. Bears - DL Jonathan Allen (Alabama)
  1. Jaguars – RB Leonard Fournette (LSU)
  1. Titans (from Rams) – S Jamal Adams (LSU)
  1. Jets – CB Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State)
  1. Chargers – S Malik Hooker (Ohio State)
  1. Panthers – DL Derek Barnett (Tennessee)
  1. Bengals – DE Taco Charlton (Michigan)
  1. Bills – WR Mike Williams (Clemson)
  1. Saints – CB Marlon Humphrey (Alabama)
  1. BROWNS – TE O.J. Howard (Alabama): After locking in a dynamic defensive player, the Browns add a dynamic offensive piece in the very talented tight end, who many say is a more talented Jimmy Graham.
  1. Cardinals – QB Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech)
  1. Eagles – CB Gareon Conley (Ohio State)
  1. Colts – RB Christian McCaffrey (Stanford)
  1. Ravens – WR Corey Davis (Western Michigan)
  1. Redskins – LB Reuben Foster (Alabama)
  1. Titans – WR John Ross (Washington)
  1. Buccaneers – RB Dalvin Cook (Florida State)
  1. Broncos – TE David Njoku (Miami)
  1. Lions – LB/S Jabrill Peppers (Michigan)
  1. Dolphins - DL Takkarist McKinley (UCLA)
  1. Giants - OL Forrest Lamp (Western Kentucky)

24.PROJECTED TRADE BROWNS (from Raiders) – QB Mitchell Trubisky (North Carolina) The Browns trade pick 52 and some future assets to get back in the first round ahead of the Texans to select their quarterback of the future. They finish the day with three first-round picks and land the top DE, the top TE and their top QB.

  1. Texans – QB Deshaun Watson (Clemson)
  1. Seahawks - OL Cam Robinson (Alabama)
  1. Chiefs – LB Haason Reddick (Temple)
  1. Cowboys – DE Charles Harris (Missouri)
  1. Packers - RB Alvin Kamara (Tennessee)
  1. Steelers - LB T.J. Watt (Wisconsin)
  1. Falcons – CB Tre'Davious White (LSU)
  1. Saints (from Patriots) – S Budda Baker (Washington)
  1. BROWNS – CB/S Chidobe Awuzie (Colorado): The versatile defensive back can play both corner and free safety. He is tremendous in coverage but is not afraid to stick his nose in and tackle.

  1. BROWNS (from Eagles) - DL Jonathan Allen (Alabama) - This would have seemed unfathomable a couple of months ago, but the Browns find a way to land a dominant piece to their defensive line.

  1. Eagles (from Vikings) - CB Gareon Conley (Ohio State)
  1. Colts - RB Christian McCaffrey (Stanford)

  1. BROWNS - DL Myles Garrett (Texas A&M) — So, let's try this again. Garrett is indeed the best player in the draft, proving as much at both the Combine and his Pro Day last week. He gives the Browns, who struggled to get to the QB in 2016, an immediate playmaker off the edge.
  1. 49ers - DE Solomon Thomas (Stanford)
  1. Bears - S Jamal Adams (LSU)
  1. Jaguars - TE O.J. Howard (Alabama)
  1. Titans (from Rams) - CB Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State)
  1. Jets - S Malik Hooker (Ohio State)
  1. Chargers - DL Jonathan Allen (Alabama)
  1. Panthers - RB Leonard Fournette (LSU)
  1. Bengals - LB Reuben Foster (Alabama)
  1. Bills - WR Mike Williams (Clemson)
  1. Saints - DE Takkarist McKinley (UCLA)
  1. BROWNS - QB Mitchell Trubisky (North Carolina) — Trubisky is a one-year starter with some question marks, but the North Carolina quarterback has the toolbox to be a face-of-the-franchise type player.
  1. Cardinals - QB Deshaun Watson (Clemson)
  1. Eagles - RB Christian McCaffrey (Stanford)
  1. Colts - LB/DE Haason Reddick (Temple)
  1. Ravens - WR Corey Davis (Western Michigan)
  1. Redskins - DL Derek Barnett (Tennessee)
  1. Titans - WR John Ross (Washington)
  1. Buccaneers - RB Dalvin Cook (Florida State)
  1. Broncos - OL Ryan Ramczyk (Wisconsin)

  1. Dolphins - DE Taco Charlton (Michigan)
  1. Giants - TE David Njoku (Miami)
  1. Raiders - DE Charles Harris (Missouri)
  1. Texans - QB Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech)
  1. Seahawks - CB Marlon Humphrey (Alabama)
  1. Chiefs - LB TJ Watt (Wisconsin)
  1. Cowboys - LB/S Jabrill Peppers (Michigan)
  1. Packers - OL Forrest Lamp (Western Kentucky)
  1. Steelers - QB DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame)
  1. Falcons - LB Tim Williams (Alabama)
  1. Saints (from New England) - RB Joe Mixon (Oklahoma)
  1. BROWNS - TE Evan Engram (Ole Miss) - Engram clocked a blazing 4.42 40-yard dash at the Combine and could give opposing defenses fits.
