Final Mock Offseason of 2016 + Full 1st Round

Recommended Posts

* = draft day trade

1) LA (f/ TEN) - Jared Goff QB California

The Rams get their QB of the future. Goff has all the intangibles and arm talent to be a top 10 QB in a few years. 

2) PHI (f/ CLE) - Carson Wentz QB North Dakota State

The Eagles also moved up to get the new face of the franchise. Wentz may have the highest ceiling of any player in this draft.

3) SD - Ronnie Stanley OT Notre Dame

Stanley is a gifted athlete, who is just beginning to scratch the surface. San Diego is in desperate need for some OL help to keep Phillip Rivers upright. 

4) DAL - Jalen Ramsey DB Florida State

Dallas gets the best DB since Patrick Peterson, and Sean Taylor before that. Ramsey instantly adds some much needed playmaking to the Dallas defense. 

*5) TEN (f/ JAX) - Laremy Tunsil OT Ole Mississippi

The Titans move back up to grab the player they likely would have chosen at number 1. Tunsil is one of the better OT prospects of the past couple decades. 

6) BAL - DeForest Buckner DL Oregon

Buckner brings some much needed talent and youth to the Baltimore defense. Buckner is a perfect fit in the Baltimore scheme.

7) SF - Paxton Lynch QB Memphis

Chip Kelly gets his QB of the future, and he has all the physical tools to develop into a top flight QB in the NFL. 

*8) MIA (f/ CLE) - Ezekiel Elliott RB Ohio State

The Dolphins fill a top need here, and with the best player at his respected position. Elliott is an elite RB prospect like Todd Gurley last year.

9) TB - Joey Bosa DE Ohio State

Tampa Bay has been searching for a worthy DL mate to pair with All-Pro DT Gerald McCoy for a while now, and Bosa is the best DE prospect in the draft. 

10) NYG - Jack Conklin OT Michigan State

The Giants get a bookend across from last year's 1st Round Pick, Ereck Flowers. Conklin cemented his status as a top OT prospect with a stellar combine to attatch to a gritty game film. 

11) CHI - Leonard Floyd OLB Georgia

With Pernell McPherson and Danny Travathan leading a talented LB group, the Bears could use a speedball off the edge to terrorize opposing QB's.

12) NO - Sheldon Rankins DT Louisville

Rankings is the best interior DL in this draft, and New Orleans would benefit greatly from some front 7 help. 

13) CLE (f/ MIA) - Vernon Hargreaves III CB Florida

With Tramon Williams nearing the end, and Justin Gilbert looking like a bust, the Browns cannot deny the value at number 13 with an elite CB prospect like Hargreaves III on the board. Haden and Hargreaves III make a lethal CB duo.

14) OAK - Chris Jones DT Michigan State

The Raiders are building a great defense, but they are lacking some pass rush up the middle. Jones is a great, young prospect that is built like a bull. 

15) JAX (f/ TEN) - Shaq Lawson DE Clemson

Jacksonville trades down from 5, and they still get a top DE prospect to help rejuvinate the Jags front 7. Lawson is a throwback type of DE, that can simply do it all. 

16) DET - Robert Nkemdiche DL Ole Mississippi

The Lions get a supremely talented interior DL prospect here, that can also kick outside and play some DE.

17) ATL - Myles Jack OLB UCLA

The Falcons sit patiently, and have a top 5 overall talent fall into their lap. As of now, Myles Jack should be able to play opening day. We can address the injury issues when we get to that bridge.

18) IND - Taylor Decker OT Ohio State

The Colts could not keep Andrew Luck upright last season. They get a solid OT prospect here to help with those issues.

19) BUF - Kevin Dodd DE Clemson

With the departure of Mario Williams, there is a gaping hole at the DE position. Dodd is a rising prospect after a strong 2015.

20) NYJ - Darron Lee OLB Ohio State

Coach Todd Bowles loves LBers that can get after the QB and play fast. Lee does both, and would be a perfect fit in the big apple.

21) WAS - Vernon Butler DL Louisiana Tech

Washington has a void of talent along the DL, and Vernon Butler is a versatile player that can play just about any position along the DL. 

22) HOU - Will Fuller WR Notre Dame

The Texans need a talented burner to alleviate some of the pressure that opposing teams put on WR DeAndre Hopkins.

23) MIN - Josh Doctson WR Texas Christian

Minnesota desperately needs to find a young, red zone target across from Stefon Diggs to help Teddy Bridgewater take the next step.

24) CIN - Laquon Treadwell WR Ole Mississippi

Pairing a big time prospect like Treadwell with All-Pro AJ Green will put opposing DC's on notice.

25) PIT - William Jackson CB Houston

The Steelers have had a gaping hole at CB for some time. Jackson is a solid overall CB.

26) SEA - Jarran Reed DL Alabama

The Seahawks get a versatile runstuffing DL here to add some youth to their DL. 

27) GB - Reggie Ragland ILB Alabama

With Green Bay just moving Clay Matthews back outside, there is a hole in the middle of the defense. A thumped like Ragland would flourish in Green Bay.

28) KC - Artie Burns CB Miami (FL)

Artie Burns may be the best CB in this draft on potential. Kansas City forms a more than formidable duo at CB with Burns and last year's 1st Round pick, Marcus Peters. 

29) ARI - Ryan Kelly C Alabama

Arizona has a hole at C, and Ryan Kelly is arguably the best C prospect since Alex Mack came out of California.

30) CAR - Eli Apple CB Ohio State

Losing Josh Norman is a huge loss, so the Panthers will have to add some of the talent lost, through the draft.

31) DEN - Vonn Bell FS Ohio State

Denver adds the missing piece to an already elite secondary. Bell fits in perfectly as a FS who can also help in the box if need be. 

And now for the remaining Falcons picks...

* Trade up to top of 2nd by swapping 2nd Round picks, and us adding in our 7th, and a 5th from next year.

2) Keanu Neal SS Florida

Neal is a perfect S for what Quinn wants to do on defense. Neal has the athletic ability and speed to also play FS.

3) Jatavis Brown LB/SS Akron

A versatile chess piece, with a lot of college production to add with his impressive game film. Gives flexibility to allow Neal to play FS, and have Brown as the SS/OLB hybrid role. Also gives us a talented insurance option to Sean Waetherspoon, and more importantly Myles Jack. Our LB core of the future could be Beasley at SLB, Jack at MLB, and Brown at WLB. He reminds me of a poor man's Khalil Mack. Terror on speacial teams on day 1.

4) Joe Thuney RG North Carolina State

Gives us a young RG to shadow Chester for a year, and become the RG of the future in 2017. Thuney has talent, versatility  and size, which is more than welcome along the OL. 

So, there is it is. Take it all as a grain of salt, and enjoy your 2016 Draft Day!

I wouldn't mind a all SEC DRAFT for us.

1. Ragland 

2. Neal.  Florida

3. Deion Jones LSU

4. J. Adams  So.Carolina TE

7. Q. Hicks UGA RB

Maybe even sub Jordan Jenkins for Adams to add more talent to the defense. Although I do like Adams over anyone in the draft not named Hunter Henry.
