The NFL’s newest expansion draft picks will be in full pads Thursday when the league announces the roster for the 2020 season.
Here are the top 10 picks: *Atlanta Falcons: DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State.
Bosa is a defensive end with a ton of upside.
He’s listed at 6-foot-3, 265 pounds and has good length, agility and burst to go with a strong first step.
The Falcons are in the mix for Bosa at No. 1.
*Carolina Panthers: OT Jonathan Cooper, Michigan.
Cooper is a versatile lineman who is a former first-team All-Big Ten pick.
He has shown he can play inside or out.
Cooper has good feet and a strong arm.
He could be a strong candidate for a roster spot.
*Green Bay Packers: TE Jordan Reed, Washington.
Reed is a wide receiver with the speed and skill set to be an impact receiver in the NFL.
He is 6-feet, 208 pounds and his athleticism and balance make him a good match for the Packers’ 3-4 defense.
Reed also could be an upgrade over Josh Sitton, a third-round pick in the 2016 draft.
*Dallas Cowboys: LB DeMarcus Lawrence, Missouri.
Lawrence is a solid edge rusher who could be on the edge at the next level if he can get to the quarterback better.
Lawrence also could help the Cowboys in coverage, a position they were lacking at the start of the season.
*Denver Broncos: DE Myles Jack, Alabama.
Jack is a 6-3 outside linebacker who could help on special teams, as well as a player who can move well through the hole.
Jack could be the next big thing in the Denver pass rush.
*Houston Texans: WR Corey Coleman, Texas A&M.
Coleman is a big receiver with some speed, but he has some room to improve on his route running.
The Texans also have a need for pass protection and are looking for a receiver to help on that side of the ball.
*Indianapolis Colts: QB Andrew Luck, Stanford.
Luck is a talented quarterback with the arm and arm strength to be a top-five pick in this year’s draft.
Luck has shown that he has the ability to win games on a regular basis and that he is able to take care of the football in the pocket and with the football on the ground.
He also has the tools to be one of the best passers in the game.
The Colts also have the ability in free agency to add more weapons to their offense.
*Los Angeles Chargers: CB Marcus Peters, Stanford .
Peters is a tall cornerback who can play in man or zone coverage.
Peters can also play free safety.
He was a two-time first-teamer for the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year award.
Peters could be available at No .1, depending on how much money teams are willing to pay.
*Miami Dolphins: LB Jaylon Smith, Florida State.
Smith is a strong safety who could become a top five safety in the draft.
Smith had a strong spring and offseason and could be another high-end defensive back to add to the Dolphins’ secondary.
*Minnesota Vikings: WR Kevin White, South Carolina.
White is a deep threat who has some ball skills and could develop into a strong slot receiver.
He plays with an aggressive demeanor.
The Vikings could also look to upgrade the offensive line if they can find a new quarterback.
*New England Patriots: LB Jonathan Allen, Alabama .

The Patriots need help at outside linebacker and they could look to sign a free agent.
*Oakland Raiders: CB D.J. Hayden, Georgia.
Hayden has a lot of athleticism and was a first-round draft pick in 2016.
Hayden also could develop as a free safety or corner.
He might be an ideal addition to the Raiders’ secondary, as they could use more depth.
*Philadelphia Eagles: WR Amari Cooper, Alabama, or RB Trent Richardson, Ohio.
Cooper could be in the top two at this position in the 2019 draft.
The Eagles could also try to add a wideout at the position.
*Pittsburgh Steelers: OT Jake Fisher, Michigan State.
Fisher has the size and athleticism to play left tackle.
He needs to add weight and add muscle to be able to play with the size of Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.
He will have a lot to prove as a pass protector and run blocker in the pros.
*San Francisco 49ers: QB Ryan Nassib, Florida.
Nassib is a potential franchise quarterback with a solid arm and the ability not to give up too many completions.
He may be a candidate to be the top quarterback in the league at No 1 overall.
