2016 NFL Mock Draft

2016 NFL Mock Draft

1. Rams - Jared Goff, QB - locked in after trading up for their guy.
2. Eagles - Carson Wentz, QB - same as above. Is it possible Eagles brass are the crazy ones and it wasn't Chip Kelly? Seems a bit bipolar to sign Bradford early for big money, only to trade so much away for this pick.
3. Chargers - Jalen Ramsey, CB - This pick impacts a lot of picks. Will be him or Tunsil. They should go latter to protect Rivers.
4. Cowboys - Joey Bosa, DE - Gonna be him or Zeke. D is a bigger need.
5. Jaguars - Myles Jack, LB - I love this guy. Might be best LB to come out since Patrick Willis.
6. Ravens - Laremy Tunsil, OT - This would be such a gift and ideal pick for them.
7. 49ers - DeForrest Buckner, DE - was a time I was hoping he'd slip to the Bears. Not a chance anymore.
8. Browns - Ronnie Stanley, OT - think it's likely they trade down for Paxton Lynch. Probably Zeke to Dolphins.
9. Bucs- Vernon Hargreaves, CB - secondary was terrible last year.
10. Giants - Leonard Floyd, DE/LB - need to get back to that pass rush they are known for.
11. Bears - Ezekiel Elliott, RB - while fantasy players loved Langford, that is more to do with the system. Zeke would be a huge upgrade, thoughShaq Lawson is the bigger need, and I actually think he will really be the guy the Bears end up with.
12. Saints - Sheldon Rankins, DT - need help against the run.
13. Dolphins - Eli Apple, CB - if Cowboys pass on Zeke, likely team to trade up for him.
14. Raiders - Jarran Reed, DT
15. Titans - Jake Conklin, OT - great fit for their smashmouth-minded coaching style
16. Lions - A’Shawn Robinson, DT
17. Falcons - Darron Lee, LB - seems a perfect fit
18. Colts - Shaq Lawson - originally thought Decker but he's too good to pass up if he's available, which he is in this scenario. Doubt he falls this far.
19. Bills - Reggie Ragland, LB - ideal fit
20. Jets - Paxton Lynch, QB
21. Redskins - Ryan Kelly, C - climbing draft boards and fills a big need. Norman signing allows this or a DT like Billings
22. Texans - Will Fuller, WR - flyer they need to complement Hopkins. Love this pick.
23. Vikings - Josh Doctson, WR - will be WR. Question is him or Treadwell.
24. Bengals - Corey Coleman, WR - funny how these three teams have the same need and Treadwell isn't picked but his 40 time killed him.
25. Steelers - Keanu Neal, S- secondary seems likely. Him or hard-hitter, Joseph. Best CB - Houston or Fuller?
26. Seahawks - Vernon Butler, DT
27. Packers - Jonathan Bullard, DT - need with Raji retiring
28. Chiefs - Laquon Treadwell, WR - Good pick for them if he falls. Nice complement to Maclin.
29. Cardinals - Robert Nkemdiche, DT- seem likely team to move down if Kelly is off the board.
30.  Panthers - William Jackson, CB - pressing need after losing Norman.
31. Broncos - Taylor Decker - seems likely him or Ifedi if they aren't in the Lynch sweepstakes.

Best guys out of first round: Joseph, Ogbah, Spence, Spriggs, Cook, Ifedi, Dodd, Henry

Later value picks I love: Jaylon Smith, DeVontae Booker, Nick Martin, Scooby Wright, Sheldon Day, Daryl Worley, Jack Allen, Carl Nassib, Kenneth Dixon
