2016 NFL Mock Draft - Round 1 (Updated)

There’s been a complete overhaul at the top of this draft after two massive trades. Here’s my (updated) best guess at how things will play out.

1. Los Angeles Rams: Jared Goff, QB, Cal
2. Philadelphia Eagles: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State
3. San Diego Chargers: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss
4. Dallas Cowboys: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State
5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jalen Ramsey, DB, Florida State
6. Baltimore Ravens: DeForest Buckner, DL, Oregon
7. San Francisco 49ers: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA
8. Cleveland Browns: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State
9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
10. New York Giants: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State
11. Chicago Bears: Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama
12. New Orleans Saints: Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida
13. Miami Dolphins: William Jackson, CB, Houston
14. Oakland Raiders: Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville
15. Tennessee Titans: Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor
16. Detroit Lions: Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss
17. Atlanta Falcons: Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia
18. Indianapolis Colts: Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State
19. Buffalo Bills: Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis
20. New York Jets: Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson
21. Washington Redskins: Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State
22. Houston Texans: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU
23. Minnesota Vikings: Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss
24. Cincinnati Bengals: Sterling Shephard, WR, Ohlakoma
25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia
26. Seattle Seahawks: Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama
27. Green Bay Packers: Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State
28. Kansas City Chiefs: Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama
29. Arizona Cardinals: A’Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama
30. Carolina Panthers: Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State
31. Denver Broncos: Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech

The defensive line depth in this draft is pretty striking. In any other year, Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd from Clemson would comfortably find themselves as Day One picks. This year, though, I didn’t have a place for them in the top 31. Hopefully one of them falls to pick 51 where the Jets can stop the freefall.
