2016 NFL Mock Draft by ruskyjj58 - 3.16
Published at 3/16/2016 7:12:57 AM

This Mock includes the Titans trading down twice eventually landing at seven overall. This makes it possible for the top two QBs to go in the top two picks. This draft is a week into free agency after most of the major moves have been made. Some players like Russell Okung could change this up a bit, but its mostly solid.

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Carson Wentz, Quarterback, North Dakota State

Browns move up to pick Wentz fearing the 49ers might beat them to the punch. Goff is a nice player and Wentz has move to prove, but Wentz's physical atributes make him the best bet for greatness. The browns give up their third pick and possibly a future pick.

2. 49ers: Jared Goff, Quarterback, California

The Browns may or may not have had to move up to get Wentz, but I have a sneaky suspicion that the 49ers actually favor Goff. Goff seems to have a real feel for the game but his ceiling is somewhere around Dalton and Romo. It takes a second and swapping their 3rd round pick for a 4th round pick to complete.

3. Chargers: Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss

Chargers luck up and get their top player at 3. Tunsil is a stalwart LT nuff said.

4. Cowboys: Joey Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State

Bosa is just too good to pass up at the point in the draft. I don't think the Cowboys expected to be able to pick between their top three players in the draft but Bosa is their top player and they snag him up.

5. Jaguars: Myles Jack, Outside Linebacker, UCLA

Im not a big believer in Jack being worth a top 5 to 10 pick in this draft, but Jacksonville selects the cover outside backer in an attempt to continue improving their reached defense from last year.

6. Ravens: Jalen Ramsey, Cornerback, Florida State

Ozzie does it again getting the player he'd probably take at 1 if forced to pick there. Ramsey will be in a great position to excel in helping the Ravens rebuild their once dominate defense.

7. Titans: Ronnie Stanley, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Can you say dream scenario for the Titans. They trade down twice landing at 7 still getting a premium player at a position of need in Stanley. All the while picking up two quality day two picks and other assets. Homerun.

8. Eagles: DeForest Buckner, Defensive End, Oregon

I dont know what to make of Buckner. He could be an absolute bust but standing next to the man you probably wouldnt say that. Hes one of the players Im very curious/excited to see how it shakes out.

9. Buccaneers: Vernon Hargreaves, Cornerback, Florida

Another slam dunk pick in Hargraves. Hargraves has the ability and swagger to change the way offenses will play the Bucks. Great player at the next level.

10. Giants: Ezekiel Elliott, Running Back, Ohio State

Elliott just makes too much sense for a team that seems to be going all in for Elis final 3 years of good play. They better get a linebacker who can cover somebody at some point but this early doesnt make as much sense.

11. Bears: Jack Conklin, Offensive Tackle, Michigan State

The bears spent free agency money on inside linebackers instead of at left tackle with the idea of drafting one high this year. Jack Conklin has mediocre right tackle written all over him but he'll be better than Bobbie Massie. Who knows maybe they make a left tackle out of him, but I doubt it.

12. Saints: Robert Nkemdiche, Defensive Tackle, Ole Miss

I thought it was funny how Sean Peyton went out of his way to say more than half of the teams in the league are dysfunctional. Start making the playoffs regularly and maybe you can blast the rest of the league. I know you won a super bowl but it wasn't last year homie. Nkemdiche is a boom or bust prospect if you've ever seen one. Hopefully the saints can get him to act right and live up to his massive potential.

13. Dolphins: Noah Spence, Defensive End, Eastern Kentucky

A lot of people have been bashing the Dolphins for their off season so far, but there is no way in hell I would have given Olivier Vernon 17.5 MILLION dollars a year. Hell he’s not as good as Carlos Dunlap and he’s making less than half of that. Mario Williams should bounce back fine this year and having a player like Noah Spence across from him at rush sam or DE sounds better to me than JPP across from Vernon.

14. Raiders: Sheldon Rankins, Defensive Tackle, Louisville

Oakland has been spending a lot of money in free agency, but I like the moves so far other than Bruce Irvin. (Who I think will struggle when asked to be more than a situational pass rusher). Averaging just under 10 mill a year is just too much money for what Irvin provides, plus he’s a head case. With that said I like where the organization is headed. I’m not completely sold on Carr but I like him. Going back to the draft, Sheldon Rankins is one of my favorite players this year and he should be a fine player to add to an emerging defense.

15. Rams: Emmanuel Ogbah, Defensive End, Oklahoma State

Oh Los Angeles, Wentz sure would have looked good in a Rams uni for their first game back in LA. However, the picks that it would have taken to get up to 1 would be more than they could bear. With that said I don’t like Lynch. I don’t think he does much at the next level and I think most teams have come around to that thinking. I wish the Rams weren’t in the same division as the 49ers and could trade for Kapernick because that could’ve worked with Gurley for a couple years. It doesn’t matter though, the Rams decide to bomb the season and go with Case Keenum for the year (yuck) but I kind of understand it. The rams decide to replace Chris Long with Ogbah. He’s a scheme fit and an outstanding player. I know they resigned Eugene Sims but Ogbah is a much better player.

16. Lions: A'Shawn Robinson, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

I don’t know what Detroit is doing. It seemed for years they only drafted WR’s in the first round and now it’s only defensive lineman. I won’t buck the trend. They pick A’Shawn Robinson, who I’ll be honest about, I just don’t see the great player that everyone talks about. With that said, he’ll fit them at a position of need in what most people think would be good value.
