Round 1


April 27, 2016



    1. 1.     Los Angeles Rams: Jared Goff, Quarterback, California
             
      The Rams need a face of their Franchise and keeping Cal product Jared Goff in-state may be the best option for both him, and the team.




    2. 2.     Philadelphia Eagles: Carson Wentz, Quarterback, North Dakota State
             
      While a puzzling trade up given their quarterback situation the Eagles take Wentz in hopes of revitalizing the struggling franchise.




    3. 3.     San Diego Chargers: Jalen Ramsey, Safety, Florida State
             
      If the Chargers are going to make one final run in the Philip Rivers era they need play-makers. Jalen Ramsey is considered by many to be the top player in this class.




    4. 4.     Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliot, Running Back, Ohio State
             
      Reports are heating up that the Cowboys are narrowing their top picks down to linebacker Myles Jack and running back Elliot. Elliot, is the best offensive player in the draft and will take a lot of pressure off the injury prone Tony Romo.




    5. 5.     Jacksonville Jaguars: Myles Jack, Outside Linebacker, UCLA
             
      Before his injury Jack was strongly considered to be the best defensive player in this draft. After his Combine Recheck Jack shot back up draft boards and is once again seen as one of the top players in this draft.






    6. 6.     Baltimore Ravens: Vernon Hargreaves, Cornerback, Florida
             
      Reports have been flooding for a while that the Ravens like Hargreavesand feel he can re-establish their defensive backfield. Hargreaves improved his technique enough last season to warrent this pick.




    7. 7.     San Francisco 49ers: Joey Bosa, Defensive End, Ohio State
             
      The 49ers need talent above all else. Joey Bosa improved his strength last season to go along with impressivew rush moves. Bosa would help re-establish a solid 49ers defense.




    8. 8.     Cleveland Browns: Jack Conklin, Offensive Tackle, Michigan State
             
      Last season Mitchel Schwartz was among the best right tackles in the NFL, with him gone the tough and rugged Conklin could create a fierce run blocking tandem on the right side. Conklin has been a hot topic in the Browns front office.




    9. 9.     Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss
             
      This pick would be made because the value is too good to pass up. Tunsil has the talent to be the first pick in the draft and could be taken far sooner. If he falls the Buccaneers would be foolish to pass on him.




    10. 10.     New York Giants: DeForest Buckner, Defensive Tackle, Oregon
             
      The Giants are in need of interior defensive line help as well as pass rushers. Buckner fills both roles giving the Giants a playmaker in the middle.






    11. 11.     Chicago Bears: A' Shawn Robinson, Defensive Tackle, Alabama
             
      The Bears' two biggest needs are offensive tackle and defensive line. Robinson is the best player left at this point in the draft and would improve a poor defensive line.




    12. 12.     New Orleans Saints: Sheldon Rankin, Defensive Tackle, Louisville
             
      The Saints had a terrible defense last year and ranked near the bottom of the NFL in almost every category. Rankin is a strong run dtuffer who could close many gaps left open last season.




    13. 13.     Miami Dolphins: Ronnie Stanley, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame
             
      Once considered the premier offensive tackle in this draft Stanley is still a talented and capable left tackle prospect. Stanley would start from the first day he entered the building in Miami.




    14. 14.     Oakland Raiders: Eli Apple, Cornerback, Ohio State
             
      The Raiders have few holes but Cornerback is one of them. Apple is a bit raw but talented and as athletic as anyone in this class outside of Hargreaves.




    15. 15.     Tennessee Titans: Laquon Treadwell, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss
              Tennessee needs help at receiver and Treadwell has impressed with his hands and body control. Treadwell could be a huge difference maker.




    16. 16.     Detroit Lions: Emmanuel Ogbah, Defensive End, Oklahoma State
             
      Ogbah is a bit raw but his athletic ability and tenacity are off the charts. A team like detroit that is desperate for a pass rusher will jump at him.




    17. 17.     Atlanta Falcons: Shaq Lawson, Defensive End, Clemson
             
      Atlanta had another terrible season rushing the passer. Lawson could easily develop into a ten sack per season threat.




    18. 18.     Indianapolis Colts: Noah Spence, Edge, Eastern Kentucky
             
      The Colts have a lot of issues and Noah Spence has cleaned up his act nicely over the past year. Spence could help give the Colts a respectable pass rush.




    19. 19.     Buffalo Bills: Leonard Floyd, Edge, Georgia
             
      Mario Williams was released to start the offseason and the Bills had a difficult time generating pressure on the quarterback, hurting the overall defensive product. Floyd is one of the most complete and versatile pass rushers in the draft this year.




    20. 20.     New York Jets: Darron Lee, Linebacker, Ohio State
             
      The Jets were nearly a playoff team last year and an extra play made at any point could have turned the tide of the season. Darron Lee is an excellent player who would be an excellent replacement for Calvin Pace.






    21. 21.     Washington Redskins: Andrew Billings, Nose Tackle, Baylor
             
      The Redskins let Terrence Knighton walk to New England and look to Billings as an upgrade to help sure up their run defense.




    22. 22.     Houston Texans: Will Fuller, Wide Receiver, Notre Dame
             
      Fuller is a player with a high draft range from early 20's into the early second round. Several sources suggest Houston seems to be interested.




    23. 23.     Minnesota Vikings: Corey Coleman, Wide Receiver, Baylor
             
      Corey Coleman is sure handed bil play wide receiver who will give Teddy Bridgewater the pressence at receiver he needs to succceed.




    24. 24.     Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Doctson, Wide Receiver, TCU
             
      The Bengals need a new secondary receiver and Doctson is the best receiver left on the board.




    25. 25.     Pittsburgh Steelers: Mackensie Alexander, Cornerback, Clemson
             
      Mackensie Alexander is an excellent man defender and could go much higher than 25.




    26. 26.     Seattle Seahawks: Germaine Ifedi, Offensive Line, Texas A&M
             
      Ifedi is one of the fastest rising names in the trenches this year with some people seeing him as both a Right Tackle and Guard prospect. He fits well here with Seattle.




    27. 27.     Green Bay Packers: Reggie Ragland, Inside Linebacker, Green Bay
             
      Reggie Ragland is a strong overall linebacker with coverage skills and excellent run stuffing ability. The Packers need Clay Matthews back rushing the passer.




    28. 28.     Kansas City Chiefs: Paxton Lynch, Quarterback, Memphis
             
      Paxton Lynch has greatly improved his image and attitude under agent Leigh Steinberg. Alex Smith isn't getting any younger and Andy Reid can work with Lynch.




    29. 29.     Arizona Cardinals: William Jackson III, Cornerback, Houston
             
      Arizona is hurting for Cornerback help beside Patrick Peterson. This is well within range for Jackson and his skillset.




    30. 30.     Carolina Panthers: Michael Thomas, Wide Receiver, Ohio State
             
      Cam Newton only averaged seven yards per completion last season. Thomas is a strong down field threat that will open up the offense.




    31. 31.     Denver Broncos: Jarron Reed, Defensive End, Alabama
             
      The Broncos need the best player on the board after losing players after the Super Bowl win. Reed can rush the passer and play the run well.
