2016 NFL Mock Draft


Similar to last year, the 2016 NFL Draft opens
up between a debate of two quarterbacks to be chosen number one overall, this time between Jared Goff and Carson Wentz. Interestingly enough, this draft could be vastly different had the Titans (who held the #1 pick before trading to LA) and Cleveland (held the #2 pick before trading with Philadelphia) stayed at their original spots. Although the draft takes place in the spring, 2016 has been dubbed the draft of the fall. Numerous players have questions regarding their health, off the field issues, or even both. Will Myles Jack's knee cause him to plummet down the boards? Will the character issues haunt Robert Nkemdiche come Thursday?  Teams have spent the past four months evaluating everything to know about their potential suitors, from the mechanics in their footwork, all the way up to what they would be caught doing on a Friday night. If a team is sold on a prospect, they won't be afraid to take the jump and trade up. Whispers around the league suggest Miami could do-so for Ezekiel Elliot, others peg the Jets to trade up to snag Paxton Lynch. One trade is easily capable of shaking the entire draft, but so is one pick. The draft is where teams can completely turnaround their franchise, and at the same time, teams free-fall into mediocrity  Once the commissioner steps foot on the stage, all the rumors, smoke screens, mock drafts, predictions, interviews and everything else will be pushed to the side- for the circus known as the NFL Draft will begin.
