NFL Draft Day 1 Review

Publish Date: 04/29/2016
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster
NFL Draft Day 1 Review

On a night full of surprises, here’s a rundown of Day 1 of the Draft:

1 – Rams – QB Jared Goff – As expected, the Rams take the surest QB in the Draft.

2 – Eagles – QB Carson Wentz – No surprise here. They traded up to ensure they got Wentz or Goff.

3 – Chargers – DE Joey Bosa – A big surprise, but the Chargers get a guy they believe can get to the QB.

4 – Cowboys – RB Ezekiel Elliot – Many thought they would go Ramsey, but Elliot behind that line could be scary.

5 – Jaguars – CB Jalen Ramsey – An immediate upgrade to their secondary.

6 – Ravens – OT Ronnie Stanley- Fills a big need and could be the best tackle in the draft.

7 – 49ers – DE DeForest Buckner- The Niners defensive line should be solidified for years now, reuniting Buckner with Armstead.

8 – Titans – OT Jack Conklin – The Titans trade back into a spot to grab a guy who should be a cornerstone on the offensive line.

9 – Bears – DE/OLB Leonard Floyd – Good pick who should help the pass rush. Not sure they needed to trade up for him.

10 – Giants – CB Eli Apple – He fills a need in the secondary. Would have thought they would have went offensive line.

11 – Tampa – CB Vernon Hargreaves – Tampa continues to build their defense and gets a real good corner.

12 – Saints – DL Sheldon Rankins – Most analysts believed the Saints needed to go defense and this should be a good anchor for years to come.

13 – Dolphins – OT – Laremy Tunsil – His potential off-field issues caused him to slip, but Miami is getting a great player.

14 – Raiders – S Karl Joseph – Oakland’s defense is getting scarier. They have found Woodson’s replacement.

15 – Browns – WR Corey Coleman – This was a bit of a surprise with good defensive players and possibly better receivers available, but still a quality player.

16 – Lions – OT Taylor Decker – The Lions clearly drafted for need here. Not many other tackles left on the board.

17 – Falcons – S Keanu Neal – A great fit for Atlanta’s rebuilding secondary.

18 – Colts – C Ryan Kelly – Great pick for Andrew Luck as he gets his Jeff Saturday.

19 – Bills – DE Shaq Lawson – Linebacker was more of a need but hard to pass up a guy like Lawson.

20 – Jets – OLB Darron Lee – Though he has mixed reviews, Β he just another quality player on a Jets defense that’s continuing to improve.

21 – Texans – WR Will Fuller – Surprised they didnt go with Doctson, but Fuller fits what Houston is trying to do.

22 – Redskins – WR Josh Doctson – Kirk Cousins has quite an arsenal with Doctson, Garcon, Jackson and Jordan Reed.

23 – Vikings – WR Laquon Treadwell – The Vikings added another piece that should keep them atop the NFC North.

24 – Bengals – CB – William Jackson- More depth for an already very good defense.

25 – Steelers – CB Artie Burns – Not the best name for a corner, but this was a very good pick.

26 – Broncos – QB Paxton Lynch – This was projected and the Broncos got their man.

27- Packers – DT Kenny Clark – A very Ted Thompson pick. Safe, solid player.

28 – 49ers – G Joshua Garnett – The best run- blocker in the draft and they kept Seattle from landing him. Swapped 2 picks and gave up their extra 4th rounder.

29 – Cardinals – DL RobertΒ Nkemdiche – Lots of comparisons to Calias Campbell. Another great player for their defense.

30 – Panthers – DT Vernon Butler – Fantastic pick at 30. Carolina’s defensive line depth is crazy.

31 – Seahawks- G/T Germain Ifedi – Fills a definite need at offensive line.
