2016 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

Round 1
PICK TEAM NAME POSITION SCHOOL HEIGHT WEIGHT
1 Titans LAREMY TUNSIL OT OLE MISS 6’5″ 305
THE OFFENSIVE LINE FOR THE TENNESSEE TITANS LAST YEAR WAS DREADFUL. IT IS KIND OF HARD FOR A ROOKIE QUARTERBACK TO GAIN IS FOOTING WHEN HE WAS SACKED, AN NFL LEADING, 57 TIMES. TUNSIL CAN STEP IN RIGHT AWAY JUST LIKE HE DID AT OLE MISS AND BE THE BEST PASS BLOCKER THE TITANS HAVE. BOSA IS TEMPTING, BUT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE TITANS TO PROTECT THEIR YOUNG QUARTERBACK. IT ISN’T THE SEXIEST PICK, BUT IT IS NEEDED.
2 Browns JARED GOFF QB CAL 6’4″ 215
STOP ME IF YOU’VE HEARD THIS BEFORE, THE BROWNS ARE IN THE MARKET FOR A QUARTERBACK. THE MANZIEL EXPERIMENT DIDN’T WORK OUT JUST LIKE THE BRADY QUINN, COLT MCCOY AND BRANDON WEEDEN PICKS DIDN’T. CLEVELAND HAS QUITE THE DECISION TO MAKE BETWEEN JARED GOFF AND CARSON WENTZ. BOTH OF THESE QUARTERBACKS WOULD BE BETTER SITTING A YEAR AND DEVELOPING BEFORE STARTING. I BELIEVE THE BROWNS TAKE THE FUTURE QUARTERBACK OF THE FRANCHISE HERE. IF THE BROWNS DO NOT SEE EITHER QUARTERBACK BEING THE FUTURE THEY GO WITH THE BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE IN JOEY BOSA.
3 Chargers JOEY BOSA DE OHIO ST. 6’3″ 275
THE CHARGERS WOULD BE IN A GREAT POSITION WITH THIS PICK AS THEY HAVE A PLAYER AT A POSITION OF NEED IN JALEN RAMSEY AND ONE OF THE TOP PLAYERS AVAILABLE WITH BOSA. RAMSEY WOULD PROVIDE IMMEDIATE HELP FOR A DEPLETED SECONDARY. AT SAFETY ERIC WEDDLE LOOKS TO BE MOVING ON AND THEY DO NOT HAVE A QUALITY NUMBER TWO CORNERBACK OPPOSITE OF JASON VERRETT. RAMSEY WOULD FIT THAT NEED, BUT JOEY BOSA WOULD IMMENSELY HELP A DEFENSE THAT FINISHED 24TH IN SACKS. EVEN WITH KENDALL REYES AND COREY LIUGET ALREADY ON THE DEFENSIVE LINE, THE CHARGERS PICK BOSA SO THEY CAN PUT MORE PRESSURE ON THE OPPOSING QUARTERBACKS.
4 Cowboys JALEN RAMSEY CB FLORIDA ST. 6’1″ 205
YES, THERE IS A BIG WAVE OF MEDIA SAYING THAT NOW IS THE TIME TO INVEST IN THE FUTURE AT THE QUARTERBACK POSITION. HOWEVER, JERRY IS IN WIN NOW MODE. IT IS HARD FOR ME TO SEE HIM PICK A QUARTERBACK THAT WON’T HELP THE TEAM FOR THREE YEARS DOWN THE LINE INSTEAD OF TAKING A PLAYER THAT CAN HELP THEM NOW. RAMSEY WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE COWBOYS AS THE FUTURES OF BOTH MORRIS CLAIBORNE AND BRANDON CARR ARE IN QUESTION. RAMSEY CAN PLAY BOTH CORNER AND SAFETY AS A GREAT ADDITION TO THE COWBOYS SECONDARY.
5 Jaguars MYLES JACK OLB UCLA 6’1″ 231
THE JAGUARS IN THIS SITUATION I BELIEVE WOULD GO FOR MYLES JACK WHO IS THE LAST PLAYER IN THE TOP TIER OF THE DRAFT. THIS JAGUARS DEFENSE WOULD BE FUN TO WATCH HAVING BOTH TELVIN SMITH AND MYLES JACK ROAMING THE FIELD. JACK CAN HELP FROM THE PASS RUSH TO COVERAGE AS HE HAS A RARE COMBINATION OF SIZE AND SPEED.
6 Ravens VERNON HARGREAVES CB FLORIDA 5’11” 194
SECONDARY IS AN OBVIOUS NEED FOR THE RAVENS AS THERE IS A GAPING HOLE IN THE CORNERBACK POSITION. LADARIUS WEBB LOOKS LIKE HE WILL BE MOVED TO SAFETY WHICH OPENS UP A SPOT FOR HARGREAVES. VERNON IS A CORNER WHO PLAYS WITH GREAT PHYSICALITY. HOWEVER IF THE RAVENS DECIDE TO CUT MONROE BECAUSE OF THE SALARY CAP, RONNIE STANLEY WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION HERE.
7 CARSON WENTZ QB NORTH DAKOTA ST. 6’5″ 233
CHIP KELLY GETS HIS NEW QUARTERBACK IN THIS SCENARIO AND I BELIEVE WENTZ COULD DO WELL IN KELLY’S SYSTEM. WENTZ HAS A STRONG ARM AND IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL THE NFL THROWS. WENTZ IS ALSO A GREAT, TOUGH RUNNER WITH VERY GOOD SPEED. THIS WOULD MAKE FOR A VERY INTERESTING TRAINING CAMP WITH KAEPERNICK, GABBERT AND WENTZ COMPETING FOR THE JOB. WENTZ WOULD BE BEST DEVELOPING INTO THE NFL GAME ON THE BENCH TO START HIS CAREER.
8 Dolphins JAYLON SMITH OLB NOTRE DAME 6’3″ 230
THIS IS JUST A SITUATION WHERE TALENT AND NEED MATCH UP TOO PERFECTLY TO PASS UP. JAYLON SMITH WOULD BE GOING HIGHER IF IT WASN’T FOR A KNEE INJURY IN HIS BOWL GAME AGAINST OHIO STATE. THE DOLPHINS MAIN PROBLEM LAST YEAR WAS STOPPING THE RUN AND THEY NEED SOME PLAYMAKING LINEBACKERS TO STEP IN. SMITH MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY RIGHT AWAY, BUT HE SHOULD BE A MAIN PART OF A DEFENSE ONCE HE GETS BACK ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD.
9 Bucs ROBERT NKEMDICHE DT OLE MISS 6’4″ 285
THE BUCCANEERS LAST YEAR FOUND THEIR FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK, THIS YEARS GOAL WILL BE TO CONTINUE TO UPGRADE THE TALENT LEVEL. NKEMDICHE WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO THE BUCCANEERS DEFENSE AS A HYBRID DEFENSIVE END/TACKLE. I KNOW THE BUCCANEERS ALREADY HAVE GERALD MCCOY AND AKEEM SPENCE, BUT NKEMDICHE IS A TALENT THAT IS HARD TO PASS UP. AS LONG AS THE BUCS DO NOT THINK HE IS AN OFF THE FIELD PROBLEM, NKEMDICHE WOULD BE A GREAT PICK UP FOR THE DEFENSIVE LINE.
10 Giants NOAH SPENCE DE EASTERN KENTUCKY 6’3″ 254
SPENCE WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE GIANTS 4-3 SYSTEM AS AN EDGE RUSHER. THE GIANTS HAVE ROBERT AYERS AND JASON PIERRE-PAUL BOTH GOING TO FREE AGENCY SO THEY NEED ANOTHER PASS RUSHER. SPENCE IS EXPLOSIVE OFF THE EDGE AND WILL CONTRIBUTE RIGHT AWAY. THE GIANTS COULD ALSO PICK REGGIE RAGLAND AS A LONG TERM SOLUTION TO REPLACE JON BEASON.
11 Bears RONNIE Stanley OT NOTRE DAME 6’6″ 318
THIS WOULD BE A DREAM SCENARIO AS THE BEARS NEED TO FIND A LONG TERM SOLUTION AT THE LEFT TACKLE POSITION. STANLEY IS A TOP TEN TALENT AND IN THIS SITUATION FALLS RIGHT IN THE BEARS LAP. CHARLES LENO PLAYED DECENTLY, BUT STANLEY IS A MUCH BETTER LONG TERM SOLUTION. REGGIE RAGLAND WOULD ALSO BE AN OPTION HERE FOR THE BEARS.
12 Saints LAQUON TREADWELL WR OLE MISS 6’2″ 219
TREADWELL IS A GREAT VALUE AT THIS POINT FOR THE SAINTS. IT GIVES DREW BREES A THREAT AND THE SAINTS A FUTURE NUMBER ONE WIDE RECEIVER. COLSTON IS GETTING UP THERE IN AGE SO IT IS A CASE WHERE THE VALUE MATCHES THE NEED. THE SAINTS OFFENSE WITH TREADWELL, BRANDIN COOKS, WILLIE SNEAD, AND MARQUES COLSTON WOULD BE VERY FUN TO WATCH.
13 Eagles SHAQ LAWSON DE CLEMSON 6’3″ 275
THE EAGLES ARE IN TRANSITION AS THEY MOVE ON FROM THE CHIP KELLY ERA. VINNY CURRY HAD A DOWN YEAR AND IS A FREE AGENT THIS UPCOMING OFFSEASON. LAWSON CAN BE HIS REPLACEMENT THIS NEXT YEAR AND BOOST A PASS RUSH THAT WAS MIDDLE OF THE ROAD LAST YEAR. WITH THE EAGLES MOVING TO A 4-3 DEFENSE NEXT YEAR, LAWSON FITS PERFECTLY AT DEFENSIVE END.
14 Raiders SHELDON RANKINS DT LOUISVILLE 6’2″ 304
DAN WILLIAMS AND JUSTIN ELLIS DID A SERVICEABLE JOB LAST YEAR, BUT RANKINS SHOULD TAKE THE RAIDERS TO A NEW LEVEL. A DEFENSIVE LINE WITH RANKINS RUSHING FROM THE INSIDE AND KHALIL MACK DOMINATING ON THE OUTSIDE WOULD BE OUTSTANDING. WITH  JUSTIN TUCK RETIRING RANKINS KEEPS THE DEFENSIVE LINE STRONG.
15 Rams MICHAEL THOMAS WR OHIO ST. 6’3″ 210
THE RAMS HAVE BEEN WITHOUT A NUMBER ONE WIDE RECEIVER FOR AWHILE NOW. THEIR TOP TWO WIDE RECEIVERS COMBINED FOR JUST OVER 1000 YARDS THIS PAST SEASON. MICHAEL THOMAS HAS ALL THE TRAITS FOR A NUMBER ONE RECEIVER AND WILL ADD SOME HEIGHT TO THE RAMS RECEIVING CORE. WITH THOMAS, THE RAMS GET A BIG RECEIVER WITH GOOD HANDS AND SPEED.
16 Lions TAYLOR DECKER OT OHIO ST. 6’7″ 315
OFFENSIVE LINE IS THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY FOR THE LIONS THIS OFFSEASON AS THEY WERE JUST DREADFUL DURING THE YEAR. DECKER CAN COME IN RIGHT AWAY FOR THE LIONS AND START AT THE RIGHT TACKLE SPOT. IT WILL BE A BIG HELP FOR A TEAM THAT ALLOWED 44 SACKS LAST SEASON.
17 Falcons DARRON LEE OLB OHIO ST. 6’2″ 235
THE FALCONS DEFENSE WAS TERRIBLE LAST YEAR GETTING TO THE QUARTERBACK AS THEY WERE LAST IN THE NFL IN SACKS. J.J. WATT ACTUALLY ALMOST HAD AS MANY SACKS AS THE ENTIRE FALCONS TEAM COMBINED. WITH LEE THEY GET AN EXTREMELY ATHLETIC LINEBACKER WHO HAS VERY GOOD PASS RUSH CAPABILITIES. HE CAN ADD TO THE FALCONS DEFENSE IN PASS COVERAGE AS WELL.
18 Saints JACK CONKLIN OT MICHIGAN ST. 6’6″ 330
THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY FOR THE COLTS THIS YEAR WILL BE TO KEEP ANDREW LUCK UPRIGHT AND MORE TIME TO THROW THE FOOTBALL. RUN BLOCKING WAS ALSO AN ISSUE FOR THE COLTS AS FRANK GORE WAS HELD UNDER 1000 YARDS THIS YEAR FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FIVE YEARS.  THE COLTS SHOULD TAKE THE BEST AVAILABLE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN WITH THIS PICK, WHICH IN THIS CASE WOULD BE JACK CONKLIN. HE WILL ADD TO WHAT IS ONE OF THE WORST OFFENSIVE LINES IN FOOTBALL.
19 Bills DEFOREST BUCKNER DE OREGON  6’6″ 285
IS MARIO WILLIAMS ON THE DECLINE? AFTER JUST FIVE SACKS THIS PAST SEASON, WILLIAMS HAD ONE OF HIS WORST YEARS OF HIS CAREER. WITH HIS ALMOST $20 MILLION AGAINST THE CAP HE IS A PRIME CANDIDATE TO BE CUT THIS OFFSEASON. DEFOREST BUCKNER IS A PERFECT REPLACEMENT FOR WILLIAMS. BUCKNER IS A BIG AGILE DEFENSIVE END THAT IS GOOD IN BOTH THE RUN STOPPING AND PASS RUSHING ASPECTS OF THE GAME.
20 Jets REGGIE RAGLAND ILB ALABAMA 6’1″ 259
THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT MATCH FOR THE JETS AS DAVID HARRIS IS 32 YEARS OLD AT THE START OF NEXT SEASON. LAST YEAR THE JETS PICKED LEONARD WILLIAMS WHICH MADE FOR ONE OF THE BETTER DEFENSIVE LINES IN THE NFL. RAGLAND WILL TAKE THE JETS DEFENSE TO THAT NEXT STEP AS A HARD-HITTING, RUN STUFFING LINEBACKER.
21 Redskins A’SHAWN ROBINSON DT ALABAMA 6’3″ 320
THE REDSKINS DEFENSIVE LINE IS AGING AS JASON HATCHER IS 33 YEARS OLD. THEY WERE ALSO THE SECOND WORST DEFENSES AGAINST THE RUN AS THEY GAVE UP 4.8 YARDS A CARRY. ROBINSON SHOULD HELP THAT OUT RIGHT AWAY AS AN IMMEDIATE IMPACT PLAYER. ROBINSON PASS RUSH IS DECENT, BUT HE IS MUCH BETTER AT HOLDING UP AGAINST THE RUN. ROBINSON CAN COME IN AND EITHER PLAY NOSE TACKLE OR DEFENSIVE END IN WASHINGTON’S 3-4 SCHEME.
22 Houston Texans PAXTON LYNCH QB MEMPHIS 6’7″ 240
THE TEXANS QUARTERBACK PLAY LAST YEAR WAS AWFUL AND THEY NEED A YOUNG GUY THAT BILL O’BRIEN CAN DEVELOP. LOOK NO FURTHER THAN PAXTON LYNCH. LYNCH GIVES O’BRIEN A QUARTERBACK WITH THE TOOLS O’BRIEN CAN DEVELOP. HE’S GOT A VERY STRONG ARM AND IS A PRETTY DECENT ATHLETE OUTSIDE THE POCKET. LYNCH WILL PROBABLY NEED TO WAIT A YEAR OR TWO BEFORE HE IS READY TO START, BUT THIS GIVES THE TEXANS A QUARTERBACK FOR THE FUTURE.
23 Vikings JOSH DOCTSON WR TCU 6’3″ 190
STEFON DIGGS WAS A NICE SURPRISE FOR THE VIKINGS LAST YEAR, BUT THEY NEED SOME MORE HELP AT THAT POSITION. MIKE WALLACE IS FAST, BUT ISN’T A RELIABLE RECEIVER IN TERMS OF ROUTE RUNNING AND CATCHING THE BALL. DOCTSON GIVES TEDDY BRIDGEWATER A TALL WIDE RECEIVER WITH GREAT JUMP BALL ABILITY. DOCTSON WILL NEED TO PUT ON A LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHT, BUT COULD DEVELOP INTO A TRUE NUMBER ONE WIDE RECEIVER.
24 Bengals COREY COLEMAN WR BAYLOR 5’11” 190
CINCINNATI IS A TEAM THAT COULD DECIDE TO GO FOR A CORNERBACK, BUT COREY COLEMAN IS HARD TO PASS UP. WITH MOHAMMAD SANU, MARVIN JONES AND BRANDON TATE BEING UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS WIDE RECEIVER BECOMES A NEED. COLEMAN CAN BE A VERSATILE WIDE RECEIVER FOR THE BENGALS AND COMPLEMENT AJ GREEN.
25 Steelers MACKENSIE ALEXANDER CB CLEMSON 5’10” 195
IT WOULD BE A GREAT SITUATION FOR THE STEELERS IF ALEXANDER DROPPED ALL THE WAY TO 25. STEELERS ARE IN DESPERATE HELP OF CORNERBACK HELP AS THEY ARE VERY THIN AT THE POSITION. DUE TO PITTSBURGH’S DEPTH, ALEXANDER WOULD MOST LIKELY HAVE A ROLE RIGHT AWAY WITH THE STEELERS. ALEXANDER WOULD GIVE PITTSBURGH A FUTURE POSSIBLE NUMBER ONE CORNER.
26 Seahawks EZEKIEL ELLIOTT RB OHIO ST. 6’0″ 225
THE TALENT IS TOO MUCH FOR THE SEAHAWKS TO PASS UP HERE. WITH LYNCH RETIRING RUNNING BACK IS A POSITION OF NEED. THOMAS RAWLS DID WELL LAST YEAR WHEN LYNCH WAS OUT, BUT ELLIOTT IS A GAME CHANGING RUNNING BACK. IF THIS HAPPENS LOOK FOR ELLIOTT TO HAVE A SEASON SIMILAR TO TODD GURLEY’S LAST YEAR.
27 Packers JARRAN REED DT ALABAMA 6’3″ 311
GREEN BAY IS IN A TOUGH POSITION WITH THIS PICK. THEIR MOST PRESSING NEED IS INSIDE LINEBACKER, BUT RAGLAND WILL BE GONE BY THE TIME THEY PICK. GREEN BAY MAY TARGET HIM BY TRADING UP, BUT IF THEY STAY WHERE THEY ARE LOOK FOR THEM TO GO WITH THE BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE. REED WOULD FIT PERFECTLY INTO GREEN BAY’S DEFENSE AS A MAJOR RUN DEFENDER. THE PACKERS STRUGGLED LAST YEAR STOPPING THE RUN, BUT REED WOULD ENTIRE THE DEFENSIVE LINE ROTATION FOR THE PACKERS AND IMPROVE THEIR RUN DEFENSE.
28 Chiefs WILLIAM JACKSON CB HOUSTON 6’1″ 175
WITH THE CHIEFS POSSIBLY LOSING SEAN SMITH IN FREE AGENCY CORNER IS A MAJOR POSITION OF NEED. WILLIAM JACKSON WOULD FIT THE NEED PERFECTLY. DON’T LET THE WEIGHT FOOL YOU, JACKSON IS AN EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE TACKLER WHO ALSO HAS GREAT BALL SKILLS. THE CHIEFS COULD ALSO UPGRADE THE DEFENSIVE LINE WITH THIS PICK.
29 Cardinals ANDREW BILLINGS DT BAYLOR 6’1″ 310
BILLINGS IS TOO GOOD TO PASS UP AT THIS SPOT. WITH THIS PICK THE CARDINALS BOOSTER A DEFENSIVE LINE THAT IS AGING A BIT WITH FROSTEE RUCKER AND CORY REDDING. BILLINGS IS ONE OF THE YOUNGER PLAYERS IN THE DRAFT AND WILL ONLY BE 20 YEARS OLD BY THE TIME THE NFL SEASON STARTS. HOWEVER, BILLINGS HAS RARE STRENGTH TO STEP  IN RIGHT AWAY FOR THE CARDINALS AND ADD SOME YOUTH TO THE CARDINALS DEFENSIVE LINE.
30 Panthers KEVIN DODD DE CLEMSON 6’4″ 275
CAROLINA ALREADY HAS A GREAT DEFENSIVE LINE, BUT IS LACKING DEPTH AFTER THE RETIREMENT OF JARED ALLEN. KONY EALY SHOULD MOVE INTO AN EVERY DOWN ROLE WITH THE PANTHERS. KEVIN DODD CAN FIT RIGHT INTO EALY’S ROLE AS A ROTATIONAL DEFENSIVE END AND PASS RUSHER. DODD WILL HELP THE PANTHERS STAY ON TOP AS ONE OF THE PREMIER DEFENSES IN THE NFL. WIDE RECEIVER IS A MORE PRESSING NEED, BUT THE WIDE RECEIVER CLASS THIS YEAR IS PRETTY DEEP. ADDING ANOTHER PASS RUSHER WOULD HAVE A LOT MORE VALUE AT THIS SPOT FOR THE PANTHERS.
31 Broncos DERRICK HENRY RB ALABAMA 6’3″ 245
DENVER’S DEFENSE LED THE TEAM ALL THE WAY TO A SUPERBOWL VICTORY. THE OFFENSE HOWEVER HAS SOME IMPROVING TO DO AS THEIR RUSHING ATTACK WAS MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. DENVER ALSO HAS THEIR TWO LEADING RUSHERS BOTH AS POSSIBLE FREE AGENTS. NOTHING LIKE ADDING A 6’3 245 POUND RUNNING BACK TO HELP OUT. HENRY WOULD FIT DENVER’S RUSHING SCHEME PERFECTLY AS A ONE CUT RUNNING BACK WITH GREAT SPEED. HENRY CAN TAKE SOME OF THE PRESSURE OFF THE PROBABLE NEW STARTING QUARTERBACK BROCK OSWEILER. HENRY CAN BE AN OUTSTANDING GAME CHANGER FOR THE BRONCOS OFFENSE AND ALSO HELP AS A FOURTH QUARTER CLOSER TO WRAP UP GAMES.

NFL Draft Day 2- Best Available

After some surprises by NFL Teams, Here are the Top 15 Players Available on my Big Board. Click on the Players names for a full player profile. You can also check out the full Big Board by clicking >>Here<<

TOP 15 Available

#1

Randy Gregory OLB Nebraska 6’5″ 238
Gregory is a long talented defensive end who excels at rushing the quarterback. He has very good football instincts and shows a good motor. Gregory played very light at Nebraska, but still played with good strength. He was banged up a little bit this year with a knee injury, but still showed enough to warrant a high draft position. He does have some off the field concerns however as he tested positive for Marijuana at the NFL Combine. Randy Gregory is best as a stand up Outside Linebacker in the 3-4 with his excellent length and speed around the edge.

#2

La’el Collins OT LSU 6’5″ 308
Collins played left tackle this past year for LSU and was a major piece in establishing the run game. Collins looks like this years Zack Martin as he is a premium road grader on the offensive line and will most likely start out as a guard. On tape you constantly see La’el Collins move defensive lineman out of the way and creating great holes for the running back. Collins has a good kick slide in pass protection along with decent athleticism. He isn’t the most fluid, but still shows the ability to get to the second level. Look for Collins to be a high draft pick and eventually ending up as an effective tackle at the next level.
#3
Landon Collins S Alabama 6’1″ 221
 Collins is a great tackler and plays the safety position from a run support perspective about as well as you can. He excels at flying from the back end of the defense in run support and has great power when tackling. Along with being great in run support, he also is a magnet to the ball in pass coverage. It is a legitimate concern if he can play as a single high safety at the next level or if he is strictly a strong safety. He is not elite in coverage, however Collins is an instant starter and impact player as a rookie.
#4
T.J. Clemmings OT Pittsburgh 6’5″ 309
Clemmings made a heck of a jump in only his second year playing right tackle after starting his career at defensive line. He has all the tools you look for to be a tackle at the next level. He is very athletic and does a good job finishing his blocks in the run game. In pass protection he has a nice kick slide but still needs some development with balance and his punch. Clemmings will need some NFL coaching for his raw skills, mostly exposed at the Senior Bowl in Mobile where he struggled. He will be a project, but his upside is a pro bowl left tackle at the next level.
#5
Jordan Phillips DT Oklahoma 6’5″ 329
He left Oklahoma early as a redshirt sophomore so he will need to be developed, but has the type of talent to be a definite starter. Phillips is huge and moves very well for his size. He excels in pass rush as he has a number of moves to beat the offensive lineman. I believe he is scheme diverse at the next level in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense. One area that he needs to improve on as a nose tackle is his ability to hold up against offensive lineman in the run game. At his size he sometimes gets moved when he shouldn’t. Phillips is kind of a boom or bust prospect, as he shows very rare traits for his size.
#6
Jaelen Strong WR Arizona St. 6’3″ 217
After being a top junior college recruit, Strong has put two outstanding seasons together as a Sun Devil. Jaelen Strong shows excellent soft hands with the ability to pluck the ball out of the air. Along with the great hands, he also exhibits excellent body control and the ability to win one on one battles. Strong isn’t the quickest, but does show good long speed as a deep threat. With Jaelen Strong’s good size and hands, he has the potential to be a number one receiver in the NFL.
#7
Eddie Goldman DT Florida St. 6’4″ 339
Eddie Goldman was an anchor on the Florida State defensive line. Even at 339 pounds he moves very well for his size. He does an excellent job holding up against double teams and against the run. However, he is not the most prolific pass rush threat. As an NFL player you are getting a player that can be an impact player on the defensive line, just not in the sacks category. Goldman is scheme diverse as a 3-4 Nose tackle or a 4-3 defensive tackle.
#8
Jake Fisher
OT Oregon 6’6″ 306
Solid Left Tackle at Oregon. He is very athletic and shows a good nastiness to finish off blocks. Fisher has a very good kick slide in pass protection. At times he lets the defender into his body. He also needs to improve balance and being quicker against interior rusher. Could be a surprise 1st round pick and solid starter at the next level.

#9

Eli Harold
OLB Virginia 6’3″ 247
Eli Harold excelled at Virginia as a edge rusher with his athleticism. Harold is a quick twitch edge rusher who also has good length. Harold plays with a high motor rusher and gets off the line quick. He will have to improve against the run.

#10

Carl Davis DT Iowa 6’5″ 321
 A big, versatile Defensive lineman that is highly disruptive. Needs to be a more every down player instead of just showing flashes. He does flash excellent quickness off the line and the ability to be disruptive in the backfield. Can play 4-3 DT or 3-4 DE.

#11

Eric Kendricks ILB UCLA 6’0″ 235
 Highly instinctive, 3-down linebacker. Plays sideline to sideline and is the top linebacker in terms of coverage in this draft. Has a nose for the football and is an instant impact player.

#12

Dorial Green-Beckham WR Oklahoma 6’5″ 237
 If not for 2 marijuana arrest and a domestic violence dispute where he pushed his girlfriend down the stairs, he’d be up there with the other elite Wide Receivers in this draft. DGB excels in jump ball situations and also has good speed/quickness.
#13
Maxx Williams TE Minnesota 6’4″ 249
Rare tight end combination where he excels in blocking and catching the ball. Very athletic and can separate from coverage. Excellent ball skills as well.
#14
Denzel Perryman ILB Miami 5’11” 242
Perryman has great athleticism and aggressiveness. He has the quickness to split offensive lineman and get in the back field. He is an excellent runstopper, but at times is over aggressive in tackling. Another concern is how well he plays in coverage. The team that drafts Perryman gets a big hitter who plays with great power playing and a low base.
#15
Paul Dawson OLB TCU 6’0″ 230
One of the most instinctive linebackers in the draft, Dawson was all over the field for the Horned Frogs this past season. Dawson is quick to react, and is best at the next level as a 4-3 weakside linebacker. Two concerns about Dawson are his size and speed.

No. 1- Leonard WIlliams

Leonard Williams

 Position School Height Weight
DT USC 6’4″ 5/8 302
Workout Results
Bench Press N/A Broad Jump 8’10”
40 yd Dash 4.97 20 yd Shuttle 4.53
Vertical Jump 29.5 Cone Drill 7.59
The top player in this year’s draft, Williams was extremely disruptive this year at USC. He excels at disengaging blockers and finding the ball carrier. Leonard Williams is very athletic for his size and will be an instant impact player. Williams can play all three downs where he excels as a run stuffer and a pass rusher. The one risk is that there is talk that he may have long terms shoulder problems. At 6’5 and 300 LBS he has the athleticism to be scheme diverse at the next level as a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT. This highly versatile defensive lineman should be a definite top 5 draft pick.

No. 2- Jameis Winston

On the field Jameis Winston is a great quarterback prospect with his great size, accuracy and arm strength. Winston maintains his poise in the pocket and has unbelievable anticipation throwing the ball on time. Winston did get in trouble trusting his arm too much this year and forcing the ball shown by his 18 Interceptions. He has also had plenty of Off the field issues that teams will have to consider when drafting him. However, he is the top quarterback in this class and has shown on the field that he has the tools to be a franchise quarterback.

No. 3- Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper

 Position School Height Weight
WR Alabama 6’0″ 7/8 211
Workout Results
Bench Press N/A Broad Jump 10’0″
40 yd Dash 4.42 20 yd Shuttle 3.98
Vertical Jump 33 Cone Drill 6.71
Amari Cooper had a monster season with 124 catches and over 1700 yards. Cooper did have quite a few screen catches in Lane Kiffin’s system, but excelled after the catch. Cooper shows the ability to naturally pluck the ball out of the air. He is one of the best wide receivers in this draft and can beat the press with his quickness of the line. Cooper combines this quickness and speed with also being a great route runner and will be able to get on the NFL right away as an impact rookie. He did have a few easy drops late in the season, but the team that drafts Cooper shouldn’t worry as he has shown reliable hands throughout his career. Cooper can come in and be an instant impact rookie as he is the most polished wide receiver in the draft.

No.4- Dante Fowler Jr.

Dante Fowler Jr.

Dante Fowler

 Position School Height Weight
DE Florida 6’2″ 5/8 261
Workout Results
Bench Press 19 Broad Jump 9’4″
40 yd Dash 4.60 20 yd Shuttle 4.32
Vertical Jump 32.5 Cone Drill 7.40
I have Dante Fowler as the top edge rusher in a draft filled with talented pass rushers. Fowler shows something special with his ability to bend around the corner at his size. This Florida Gator plays with a high motor and is extremely quick. Dante Fowler is also strong in the run game as well as he shows good strength at the point of attack. At Florida he showed the ability to drop back into coverage. With Fowler you get not only an excellent pass rusher, but also a guy who won’t be a liability in the run game. He is scheme diverse also as a 4-3 DE or a 3-4 OLB. With teams always seeking for talented pass rushers, look for Fowler to go early in the draft.

No. 5- Marcus Mariota

Marcus Mariota

 Position School Height Weight
QB Oregon 6’3″ 3/4 222
Workout Results
Bench Press N/A Broad Jump 10’1″
40 yd Dash 4.52 20 yd Shuttle 4.11
Vertical Jump 36 Cone Drill 6.87
Mariota has everything you ask for in terms of tools from a college quarterback. He possesses a great arm and accuracy with his quick delivery. Along with being a great thrower, Mariota is the best scrambling quarterback I have ever scouted as he shows blazing speed. The tools are not the problem when it comes to Mariota, it is whether he can translate from the Oregon offense to the NFL in terms of reading defenses. Mariota also must protect the ball better as he has accumulated 27 fumbles throughout his college career. Despite the down falls, Mariota is a quarterback that coaches around the league will love to work with because of his great character and elite tools.

No. 6- Kevin White

Kevin White

 Position School Height Weight
WR West Virginia 6’2″ 5/8 215
Workout Results
Bench Press 23 Broad Jump 9’10”
40 yd Dash 4.35 20 yd Shuttle 4.14
Vertical Jump 36.5 Cone Drill 6.92
Kevin White experienced a breakout year at West Virginia jumping from just 507 yards during his junior year to 1447 yards in his senior campaign. At 6’3″ Kevin White has an excellent catch radius and exhibits natural hands. White is excellent in the air as well, he shows a great ability to adjust his body. A question going into the combine was his straight line speed. However, after the 4.35 in Indianapolis he has truly shown he is a complete wide receiver. Where Cooper distinguishes himself from White is the ability to create separation. Too many times on tape did you see a cornerback right on White. This is an aspect Kevin White must improve upon to be successful at the next level. However, White is right up there with Cooper when it comes to top wide receivers in the draft and can be an excellent NFL player at the next level.
