Published at 3/31/2016 9:56:12 PM

Mock draft with no trades involved. Fans of football, you guys probably know more about the teams you cheer for than me, for that reasons I am open to suggestions. So if you do not like the pick for your team, comment who should be the pick instead (with people taken after him please) and I will consider changing it. Also if you loved the pick, comment as well and grade the mock.

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Titans: Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss

Unless they trade down, there is a strong possibility that Tunsil, will be protecting Mariota next year and for years to come, kicking Taylor Lewan to the right side. Jalen Ramsey would be a very nice pick here, but with Mariota already dealing with injuries in such a young career, it seems almost an obligation to protect your franchise QB more in the years to come. Other options : Trade Down, Jalen Ramsey.

2. Browns: Carson Wentz, Quarterback, North Dakota State

Despite the signing of RGIII, he is coming from a year without playing football, watching from the bench Kirk Cousins play as a starter, so he may not be the same QB as the one who won Offensive Rookie of the Year in `12. So, Hue Jackson gets a new QB with huge upside he can groom with time, adept him to the NFL and make him his QB of the future, while using RGIII this year. Other options: Jalen Ramsey, Joey Bosa, Myles Jack.

3. Chargers: Jalen Ramsey, Cornerback, Florida State

Longtime Charger and captain Eric Weddle left, but the Chargers don`t pass on their chance to find and super-athletic and skilled replacement in Jalen Ramsey, arguably the best overall player in the draft. Other options: Joey Bosa, Myles jack, DeForester Buckner, Ronnie Stanley

4. Cowboys: Myles Jack, Outside Linebacker, UCLA

A lot of Cowboys fans might be dreaming about Ezekiel Elliot here, but with the signing of Alfred Morris, Dallas can now spend a late-round pick on a RB and help their D with the most athletic player in the draft (who also played RB in college). Also, many are predicting a QB here, and although they need a back up QB, because of Tony Romo`s age and injuries, the fourth pick is not the place to do that if they want to win-now while they still have Romo, even though it is possible that they could choose one. Other options: Jared Goff, Joey Bosa, Vernon Hargreaves, Ezekiel Elliot

5. Jaguars: Vernon Hargreaves, Cornerback, Florida

Joey Bosa may be an option here, but with the signing of Malik Jackson and the return of almost forgotten, third pick of last year, Dante Fowler Jr, the Jaguars enabled themselves to pick a player that would help their still week secondary. Devon House and Prince Amukamara is a decent duo of CBs, but the latter is on a 1-year prove it contract and have a long injury history. Adding Hargreaves, would give a building block for this team on the rise. Other options: Joey Bosa, DeForester Buckner, Ronnie Stanley

6. Ravens: Joey Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State

Ozzie Newsome, John Harbaugh and the big majority of the Ravens fans are probably delighted to call Joey Bosa a Raven if this happens, and they probably would be tempted to take OT Ronnie Stanley here, but they will not pass on a playmaker such as Bosa that some are regarding as the best player in this year draft. He can play both 3-4 DE and OLB, both a great fit for Baltimore defense. With Terrell Suggs going down with and injury last year, Bosa should help sacking the QB. With young good players on denfese, such as Timmy Jernigan, C.J. Mosley and now Joey Bosa, this team can look into the future.

7. 49ers: Jared Goff, Quarterback, California

Colin Kaepernick simply does not want stay in San Francisco, and even though they haven`t traded him yet, it is possible that it may happen soon and even if he stays he is not the answer in the future, so they go ahead and pick the local polished QB in Jared Goff, who can start right out of the gates.Other options: Ezekiel Elliot, Laquon Treadwell, Ronnie Stanley, DeForester Buckner

8. Eagles: Ezekiel Elliott, Running Back, Ohio State

So the Eagles gave Miami two of the players that marked bad decisions by the Chip Kelly Era in Philly (Byron Maxwell and his huge contract and the trade of LeSean McCoy for Kiko Alonso), they move five spots in the draft and can now get their RB of the future and make him their focus on offense as the replacement of a more expensive ruinning back in DeMarco Murray. Right now, it sure seems like a nice start to a new era in Philly. Other options: Ronnie Stanley, Eli Apple. Mackensie Alexander

9. Buccaneers: DeForest Buckner, Defensive End, Oregon

The Buccaneers would haved Hargreaves, but he is long gone, so they go ahead and help their D-line with one freakish athlete with huge arms in Buckner. Buckner, Gerald McCoy and Jacquies Smith is a good trio of defensive linemen and should probably fix their pass-rushing problems. Other options: Shaq Lawson, Kevin Dodd, Eli Apple, Mackensie Alexander.

10. Giants: Ronnie Stanley, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

With many options to go here since their upgrades in the FA, the Giants can now go with the best player available. Leonard Floy and Josh Doctson were runner ups for this pick but with the trend of the Giants picking O-Lineman, this appears to be a nice prediction. Also, with this pick the Giants would have a OL formed by, form left to right, Flowers, Pugh, Richburg, Hart and Stanley, and the oldest guy would be Pugh with 25 years old, just wow. Other options: Leonard Floyd, Josh Doctson, Laquon Treadwell, Shaq Lawson

11. Bears: Shaq Lawson, Defensive End, Clemson

The addition of Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman were nice for the defense but they need more help at the D-Line, and this pick is both value and need for this team. Lawson would start and help rush the passer with Lamarr Houston and Pernell McPhee. This team will also need some help at the secondary and at the O-Line, but lawson is much more valuable at 11. Other options: Jack Conklin, A'Shawn Robinson, Eli Apple.

12. Saints: A'Shawn Robinson, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Robinson would be able to play both NT and 3-4 DE for the Saints, and that versatility helps him a lot and makes him a great fit. Pairing up with him would be newly signed Nick Fairley and Cameron Jordan, would make this defense much better. Linebacker and Cornerback are other needs, but Robinson was one of the reason the Crimson Tide won the Championship last year. Other options: Darron Lee, Leonard Floyd, Reggie Ragland, Eli Apple

13. Dolphins: Eli Apple, Cornerback, Ohio State

With needs all across the roster Miami go and picks a playmaker CB at 13. Apple has the size to be a shutdown corner in the league, something that newly arrived Byron Maxwell isn't. Other options: Reggie Ragland, Mackensie Alexander, Darron Lee.

14. Raiders: Reggie Ragland, Inside Linebacker, Alabama

If Ragland falls to the Raiders, their front seven would have: DEs Mario Edwards Jr and Khalil Mack, NT Dan Williams, OLB Bruce Irvin and LBs Malcom Smith and Reggie Ragland, this would be a scary front seven. They also need help at CB but with the top 2 CB taken, value was considered. Other options: Mackensie Alexander, Darron Lee, Leonard Floyd, Jack Conklin

15. Rams: Paxton Lynch, Quarterback, Memphis

WR appear to be a need here, but with a trio of WR consisting of Brian Quick, Kenny Britt and Tavon Austion and a stud running back in Todd Gurley, this team just need a better QB to take it to the next level and that it what they do. Other options; Laquon Treadwell, Josh Doctson, Darrol Lee

16. Lions: Sheldon Rankins, Defensive Tackle, Louisville

The lost of Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley were both big and Haloti Ngata alone will not fix this problem, so the Lions go ahead and pick the best pass-rushing DT in this draft in Rankins to solve the problem for now and for the future. Other options: Jack Conklin, Andrew Billings, Taylor Decker.
