Final 2016 (Not a) Mock Draft, Round 1, 2016 NFL Draft (or, Please, Please, Please do not Draft Paxton Lynch)

Thursday, April 28, 2016

My big board is finalized, a couple days ago I did a 3 round mock, here is round one - I'm not predicting, I'm saying what each team should do.  If the Niners take Lynch I quit.

1. Los Angeles J.Goff QB Cal
-Goff's my top rated QB; I would not have made this move up.  Outside of Andrew Luck, I'm just never dealing up in the NFL Draft.  I want the picks.

2. Philadelphia C.Wentz QB ND St
-You can't move up here and not take the QB, but were they not to have given up all those assets, I'd prefer Ramsey to the Eagles.

3. San Diego D.Buckner DL Oregon
-I've got Buckner higher than Bosa for 3-4 teams, that's the Chargers.

4. Dallas J.Bosa DE Ohio St.
-Dallas needs help from the edge and that's Bosa.

5. Jacksonville J.Ramsey DB Florida St.
-With Jack's injury issues Ramsey moves to #1 on my board and he doesn't get by the CB starved Jags.

6. Baltimore L.Tunsil T Miss
-My #2 overall and a position of need for the Ravens.

7. San Francisco M.Jack LB UCLA
-I'm not a doctor, so if Jack slips out of the top ten based on medical, I can't scream too loudly.  He's my favorite player in the draft, this is a position of need, and maybe if I'm the Niners I deal down to a team who wants Stanley here if I think I can get Jack a tick lower.  But if they stay and the board falls this way, Jack's the last elite talent on my board and I want him.

8. Cleveland E.Elliott RB Ohio St
-Browns have needs everywhere, if they don't move down Elliott is a guy who can stay on the field all 3 downs and become the face of the franchise.

9. Tampa S.Rankins DT Louis
-Put Rankins next to McCoy and they really control the line of scrimmage.

10. NY Giants J.Conklin T Mich St.
-Elliott makes a lot of sense for a NY trade up with Cleveland if Dallas doesn't take him too early, Coleman is my top WR and it's not too early for him here either, but I'll take the run blocking tackle.

11. Chicago R.Stanley T NDame
-Bears need pass blocking, there are lots of receivers in the draft, and the plan here would be to get one next.

12. New Orleans S.Lawson DE Clem
-Highest ranked left on my board in a position of need for the Saints.

13. Miami C.Coleman WR Bay
-Top receiver on my board, a legit game breaking threat for Tannehill.

14. Oakland L.Floyd OLB Geo
-Raiders could also go with Doctson to pair with Cooper, here, I've got them taking the guy they wanted Aldon Smith to still be.

15. Tennessee W.Jackson CB Hou
-Hargreaves is higher on my board but the fit is too good to pass up.

16. Detroit J.Doctson WR TCU
-Not designed as a Calvin Johnson replacement, but they need a receiver and this is how my board falls; Hargreaves also in play but not a great fit.

17. Atlanta J.Reed DT Ala
-This is a bad spot for the Falcons; were the board to fall here it's definitely a deal down.  Whitehair makes a lot of sense but this is probably ten spots too early.

18. Indianapolis R.Ragland ILB Alabama
-Whitehair is also a good Colts fit, and they might deal down, absent that this is a good spot for a new heart of the Colts defense.

19. Buffalo C.Jones DT Miss St
-Rex goes for the super talented but occasionally low motor Jones.

20. NY Jets C.Whitehair G Kan
-Alexander also considered here as a guy who fits the scheme.

21. Washington V.Hargreaves CB Fla
-Washington super pleased if Hargreaves lands to them at 21.

22. Houston K.Joseph S WVA
-Texans have to be looking hard at the next receiver group, but Joseph will come in and start.

23. Minnesota L.Treadwell WR Miss
-Highest player left on my board and fits well with Vikes.

24. Cincinnati R.Kelly C Ala
-Like Joseph, Kelly comes in as the day one starter.

25. Pittsburgh N.Spence DE EKy
-There's not a DB on the board who makes sense here, so they take the pass rusher.

26. Seattle A.Billings Dt Bay
-It's either Decker or Billings, they're right there on the board and they have a need for both.

27. G.Bay H.Henry TE Ark
-It's a one TE draft, the Pack gets Rodgers another set of hands.

28. KCity M.Alexander CB Clem
-They need a corner, Alexander's right here and it's a great fit.

29. Arizona E.Apple CB Oh St.
-Scheme fit dictated Alexander at 28 and does so again with Apple at 29.

30. Carolina E.Ogbah DE Ok St
-Need plus position on the board.

31. Denver V.Butler DL La Tech
-Broncos need a rotation guy on the line, here's that guy.
