Ht's 2016 NFL 1st Round Mock Drafthtoutlaws2012 Hi, sports fans and toptenners I thought I'd give this a try if it doesn't work I won't try it again I decided to make a 1st round only mock draft and who I believe that team will take in that position I will also have trade scenarios to make it interesting and also put needs next to the team up on the clock i'll try to be very descriptive of all these teams and the name they pick will be in bold and if you wondering why there are 31 and not 32 teams the Patriots lost there pick due to deflategate with that said here we go ''THE NFL DRAFT IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!''
The Los Angeles Rams are now on the clock - Goddell
Team Needs QB,DE,LB,CB,WR
It's gotta be Quarterback, this team hasn't had a good QB since Kurt Warner that's how much they need a game changer on offense the question is will it be Goff or will it be Wentz that will fit their system. This team traded a ton of picks just for the Titans to move down to their original projected number which was 15. and now the pick is in let's see who it will be ''with the first pick of the 2016 NFL Draft The Los Angeles Rams Select Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State,'' In the end I do think in the back of my mind he'll go #1, most of the experts view him as the next Steve Young his got the arm and the speed to do that and it wouldn't surprise one bit.
Philadelphia Eagles are on the clock
Team Needs RB,OL,CB, DT, QB
Once again another team that traded up for potentially another game changing QB and I'm not sure about the deal the Browns got but hey #2 alright then this team was originally at the 8th pick but went 6 spots to get to this point so with that said the pick is in let's go back to the commissioner to read who is the one ''with the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft the Philadelphia Eagles Select Jared Goff, QB, California,'' In early mock drafts he was predicted to be #1 some may say he could be a bust, but honestly he should be 1st his not a mobile QB but he can be quite accurate passer kinda like Aaron Rodgers whom is also from the same college as he is that's why I like him over Wentz but you know that might be just me.After the whole Chip Kelly Debacle can this team get fix quickly or will it take another 5 years.
San Diego Chargers are on the clock
Team Needs OL,S,DE,DT,TE
Honestly I don't know where to begin with this team tons of holes to fill especially on the interiors lines on offense and defense Rivers is getting a ton of pressure along with Melvin Gordon having a bad rookie year they need better protection. They could use somebody to help in the back end of the defense now that Weddle wasn't resigned. The defensive unit of san Diego is so awful it needs a way better upgrade I mean you have tons of no names barely getting to the RB they can literally go anywhere with this pick oh and here it is ''with the third pick in the 2016 NFL draft The San Diego Chargers Select Laremy Tunsil, OT, Mississippi,'' Originally looking to fall to the Titans he just falls 2 picks down from what he could of been picked at pick a solid tackle for Rivers to be comfortable in the pocket.
Dallas Cowboys are on the clock
Team Needs DT, S, RB, WR, QB
While this team certainly needs a future QB it don't seem like at 4 is the right time to pick one now that the top 2 are off the board and the ones left on the board are projected lower than where they are. The Cowboys defensively are not very impressive they lack the secondary help and also Defensive Tackle. oh when healthy their elite give me a break they still need help on offense as well I mean somebody's gotta replace Romo his almost done get somebody next to Dez for help and this would be a good running balance is if you get someone next to Darren McFadden with 1 2 combo tandem ''with the fourth pick in the 2016 NFL draft The Dallas Cowboys select Jalen Ramsey, S, Florida State,''it makes perfect sense they always take a corner but don't realize how important the safety position is and there are not that many out there
Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock
Team Needs LB, OL, CB, S, K
Strange how there in the top 5, but they have players who are capable of getting to the playoffs it's not like there this bad it's quite surprising to say the least but they do have problems notably the offensive line Bortles is good when not pressured so badly, Amukamara might need help at Corner if even he isn't capable of being a #1 Corner. May'be add some more depth in line backing core it's not bad but you have some guys who have been there for awhile time to get that a little better. Minor need but can you get a kicker with good accuracy is that too much to ask ''with the fifth pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Jacksonville Jaguars Select Myles Jack, LB, UCLA,''Slowly but surely the jacksonville defense must improve right?
Trade Alert! Ravens have giving their #6 pick to the Dolphins for the 13th pick, and a 2nd round pick in 2017
Miami Dolphins are on the clock
Team Needs RB, CB, OL, LB
Wow our first trade of the evening goes to Miami now the question is who are they trading up to get they lost Lamar Miller to the Texans and have also lost grimes to the Bucs, then they traded with philly to get Kiko Alonso and Bryon Maxwell to go down to 13th to now trading up to 6 to who will it be? ''With the 6th pick in the 2016 NFL draft The Miami Dolphins select Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio Sate,''well he must be what they need to replace miller they must fully believe he fits that system.
San Francisco 49ers are on the clock
Team needs QB, DE, DT, OL, TE
This team has a ton of holes to fill it's anyone's guess who this team takes with where there sitting at and considering Chip Kelly's history last year. ''with the 7th pick of the 2016 draft the San Francisco 49ers select Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame,'' Will the top 2 QB's off the board and the top tackle off the board let's just build around the line makes good sense to start with.
Cleveland Browns are on the clock
Team needs WR, DE, CB, C
After trading down 6 spots what do the browns have in mind that isn't a QB? after finally releasing Johnny Manziel they immediately went out and grab RGIII and they were open to trading down but the reward is yet to decide who won better of that trade. This team has lost not 1, but 2 receivers they gotta find somewhere in this draft unfortunately not a great class of wide outs like the last 2 years were. they also need help at the corner spot give Tramon some help along with the defensive line and also they finally got rid of Alex Mack so fill that void in the middle. ''with the 8th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Cleveland Browns select Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson,''quite the surprise I know but it's another typical Browns pick you didn't see coming and one that will be questioned.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the clock
Team needs OL, DE, S, DT
This team could be very interesting in 2016 they don't look that bad of a team there defense does need some upgrades though along with the Offensive line we've seen what Winston can do but give him a lot more time and it's almost guaranteed Tampa Bay may have found success. ''with the 9th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Tampa Buccaneers select DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon,'' Projected as a top 5 pick falls to 9 in what could be a great fit for this guy.
New York Giants are on the clock
Team needs RB, TE, C, LB, DT
The Giants have really lost a lot of good players and a great coach now how do you rebuild all of that? The running game has been an issue ever since Jacobs left the first time. Remember the Eli to Shockey combination QB to TE give eli another Weapon and not Odell it all day long. They have a very weak Center protection they could use some depth in that. The defense was so atrocious you wanna know why the passing defense game was so bad you have all these no name Linebackers not getting to the intended player get a stud Linebacker. If necessary get a Nose tackle you got Pierre paul, but he could use some help in the middle. ''with the 10th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the New York ''football'' giants select Leonard Floyd, LB, Georgia,'' while he is projected in the top 20 not expected to be highly drafted to 10 still a stud the Giants need and seems to be a good fit.
Chicago Bears are on the clock
Team Needs OT, DE, RB, CB, QB
Da Bears are in the bottom of their division twice you wonder why well your Quarterback is Jay Cutler I mean come on his got one more year up but if you want to you can find one out there if you wish this very minor though. They have literally nobody at tackle they could use help left & right. Langford is the future but a tandem would help this team. How long has it been since the Bears had a good Defensive End? Tracy porter as their #2 Corner has not helped them at all they can get one to help Fuller. ''with the 11th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Chicago bears select Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State,'' he was projected as a top 10 pick falls out of the top 10 instead falls to Chi-town can he fit well the John Fox team.
New Orleans Saints are on the clock
Team Needs DT, DE, CB, S
The team the needs the most help on defense why they were dead last in passing defense almost no defense at all a young team that doesn't quite get it. Besides Fairley they need an extra man next to him. Someone to help Cameron Jordan on the other side. the secondary is so horrible even Jairus Byrd can't save them. ''with the 12th pick of the 2016 NFL draft the New Orleans Saints select Vernon Hargreaves the III, CB, Florida,'' Very good pick fell out of the top 10 he could of been at around 5-10, but slipped right where the Saints wanted em.
Baltimore Ravens are on the clock
Team Needs OL, DE, S
Well now trading down this far what will the Ravens do next? ''with the 13th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Baltimore Ravens select Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State,'' A solid tackle taken once again and this class has a lot more left on the board.
Oakland Raiders are now on the clock
Team Needs CB,OL, DT
Man the raiders have hit great the past few drafts getting Carr, Mack, Cooper who will join them. ''with the 14th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Oakland Raiders select William Jackson the III, CB, Houston,'' another corner off the board another solid one to come to the Raiders!
Tennessee Titans are now on the clock
Team Needs OL, DT, S, CB
The original #1 pick trades all the way down to fifteen prior they got DeMaruco Murray which was big due to the fact the team didn't have good running game, what would be great is if they could build on that offensive line that needs a lot of depth Mariota got hurt at the end of the season don't let it happen again that is your future. When is the last time the Titans had a good Defensive tackle? Titans secondary has been beaten up time to upgrade somewhere in that depth. ''with the 15th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Tennessee Titans select Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State,'' solid lineman they needed better protection and they just might get it.
Detroit Lions are on the clock
Team Needs OT, C, CB, DL
The Lions went and grabbed Marvin Jones as Calvin's replacement will it work that is yet to be determined. They could have somebody at tackle there beat up on both sides Stafford collapses 85% of the time his pressured constantly. Center could be another one Swanson is not a great Center protector and getting the top center wouldn't hurt. When is it the last time Lions drafted a corner in the 1st round? That defensive front is not as great as it was 2 years ago with Fairly and suh but you gotta try and rebuild it somehow. ''With the 16th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Detroit Lions select Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama,'' you know a lions fans would be going that's ridiculous pick well it's not build in the OL and you'll see the problems can be fixed if you think about it correctly.
Atlanta Falcons are on the clock
Team needs LB, S, DE, DT
The Falcons may need to think Quarterback next year if Matt Ryan is the problem, but for the time being let's focus on the defensive side. Falcons defense was horrible for the most part, Vic Beasley he did okay give him another guy next to him then may'be it'll look good. Help at secondary could be useful don't you think. The run defense of the Falcons is very mediocre and could you get someone in that area. With the 17th pick of the 2016 NFL draft the Atlanta Falcons select Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State,'' Dan Quinn loves to have a linebacker no difference here is there?
Indianapolis Colts are on the clock
Team needs RB, DT, DE, G
The Colts were favorites to go to the super bowl and they disappointed how can they bounce after not making the playoffs? You have a 30 year old RB whose about done so get a Running back right? Defensive front is very weak and not impressive get somebody. A big Guard to help Luck stay up his feet. ''With the 18th pick in the 2016 NFL The Indianapolis Colts Select Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville,'' The Colts Running defense has been bad for a few years now good to see them get a defensive tackle.
Trade alert! The Bills have giving their #19 pick to the panthers for the 30th pick, a 3rd round pick in 2017, and a 5th round pick in 2017
Carolina Panthers are on the clock
Team needs CB, DE, WR, OT
After Norman Signed with the Redskins who is going to replace him at #1 CB. Charles Johnson barely played Ealy stepped his game up, the point is ever since Greg Hardy left they haven't bothered with the position even last year why take a linebacker? They'll get Benjamin back but Ginn is okay at best he ain't all that give somebody next to Benjamin and your almost unstoppable. ''with the 19th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Carolina Panthers select Laquon Treadwell, WR, Mississippi,'' Wow what a scary combination for Cam newton and what's more surprising is how far he fell considering he was a top 10 pick and nobody took him.
New York Jets are on the clock
Team Needs QB, TE, S, DT
Jets for the past few years now have drafted all defensive players first round come on this has to be the year the streak ends I mean if you can't re-sign Fitzpatrick then how can you tell me Geno Smith will lead your team is quite laughable. This team hasn't had a good Tight End since Dustin Keller. Secondary is horrible it could use some work. The ends are find but the middle can be a problem you only have two Tackles want another? ''with the 20th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the New York Jets select Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor,'' I thought he was an overrated prospect but dropping to 20 seems to make sense and considering a teams history this wouldn't shock me cause the Jets are the jets when it comes to the draft.
Washington Redskins are on the clock
Team Needs RB, S, DL, C
Alfred Morris Went to Dallas who to get? DeAngelo Hall is getting old time to replace with someone else. The Terrance Knighton deal didn't work did it? ''with the 21st pick in 2016 NFL draft the Washington Redskins select A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama,'' His size can fit very well with this team since knighton indeed was a free agent bust for the redskins.
Houston Texans are on the clock
Team Needs TE, OL, S, RB
The Texans must really miss Owen Daniels. Give Brock some time and he may'be surprise a lot of people. Give him plenty of weapons to the point he could become the next Peyton Manning. Some secondary help is definitely needed & yes Miller is the starter but get another one just in case cause Alfred Blue struggled in that line you never know. ''with the 22nd pick in 2016 NFL draft the Houston Texans select Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas,'' This guy reminds me of Greg Olson in a way without the bread
Minnesota Vikings are now on the clock
Team Needs WR, OL, DE, K
The Vikings were a Field goal away from going to the divisional round this team is building quite in a great young way this team could be a threat for years. We know Diggs is good but who will be on the other side to help out? Minor one but not much but a little bit more help at end. ''with the 23rd pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Minnesota Vikings select Josh Doctson, WR, TCU,'' they need a #2 and I strongly believe he'd be there guy.
Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock
Team Needs S, WR, G, DE
The question is will they ever take that next level step? They lost Reggie Nelson to the Raiders which that is there biggest need secondary would be really crucial for this team. Lafell isn't that good, AJ Green on the other-hand is awesome but they lost Sanu and Jones that ain't good find someone. Offensive line help is an order. Not too bad but could use an extra boost at the end. ''with the 24th pick in the 2016 draft the Cincinnati Bengals select Germian Ifedi, G, Texas A&M,'' Better protection is a safe way to go and this wouldn't be too bad but honestly safety would of been the better option.
Pittsburgh Steelers are on the clock
Team Needs CB, DT, S, DE
The steelers defense was never great in 2015 there offense was amazing, but ultimately needs a complete team and they don't have both sides. Corner is just one they can't seem to address in the correct fashion why is that? is the defensive front doing it's part? Once Troy left the secondary hasn't been the same. ''with the 25th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Pittsburgh Steelers select Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky,'' get some more young guys let's get out of having tons of old players and try something new even if it doesn't work.
Trade Alert! The Seahawks have giving their 26th pick to the Titans for the 2 2nd round picks in this years draft
Tennessee Titans are on the clock
Team Needs DT, S, CB
I wonder what they have in mind now after this unique trade just moments ago. ''with the 26th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Tennessee Titans select Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama,'' while is wasn't a need he was the best player available for this team seems like a head scratcher pick if you ask me.
Green Bay Packers are on the clock
Team Needs DE, DT, OL,
The weakness for Green bay was the line on both sides the almighty Aaron Rodgers all of a sudden is human as he got sacked a ton of times while had a lot of luck moments this team may need to think about O-line due to this. Defensive front is weak B.j Raji has retired who is next? ''with the 27th pick in 2016 NFL draft the Green Bay Packers select Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama,'' two in a row back to back Alabama players picked will it be three?
Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock
Team Needs WR, CB, OL
Man the chiefs really looked impressive last year keep it up you look like favorites in my book. Another extra help from Corner & Receiver should do it and they could really look like strong contenders. the line at times struggles you getting a lineman would be fine too. ''with the 28th pick in 2016 NFL draft the Kansas City Chiefs select Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame,'' While the kid from Baylor may have been the best WR on the broad Chiefs seem to like Fuller more they see something in him.
Arizona Cardinals are on the clock
Team Needs LB, DT, OL
After coming off a great season Arizona needs to keep continuing with success and not be the Colts of last year. Not that sold on their Linebackers but what do I know right. Protection required very possible with a defensive tackle is also like wise. ''with the 29th pick in the 2016 NFL draft The Arizona Cardinals select Artie Burns, CB, Miami,'' While not a big need it is beneficial for Peterson to have help with a #2 Corner on the other side so not a bad move with what's already been taken.
Buffalo Bills are on the clock
Team Needs DE, DT, LB
Rex Ryan always goes defense and this isn't much of a surprise the question is who? ''with the 30th pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Buffalo Bills select Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson,'' The last defensive end projected in the 1st is now off the board leaving it down to our final pick.
Denver Broncos are on the clock
Team Needs QB, RB, TE, OL
The Super bowl champions need a lot of work to do to make it back to the playoffs first step get an offense. You can't be serious by having Mark Sanchez be your guy i'm already laughing thinking about it. C.j Anderson flopped time for someone fresh to come in mile high. Both Tight ends are gone so find one at some point & also the offensive line is still bad fix it. ''with the 31st pick of the 2016 NFL draft the Denver Broncos select Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis,'' Our 3rd quarterback taken off the board and this would come to no surprise Brock gone, Peyton Gone time for someone to save this team and that man could be Paxton Lynch his got the arm and the size difference.
''This concludes Day 1 of the NFL draft'' - Goddell
I sure hope you enjoyed this very long and very descriptive mock draft and comments where you think these players could be at what spot your welcome good luck to all the teams in this draft.
Not bad. Not bad at all. I don't think Miami will trade up for Elliott, though. It's more likely that the Ravens will take him theirselves. - CityGuru
