The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / The Grueling Truth’s 2016 NFL Mock Draft (Updated) 4/20/16

The Grueling Truth’s 2016 NFL Mock Draft (Updated) 4/20/16

Publish Date: 04/20/2016
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

1). Los Angeles Rams: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State: No-brainer a talented team that has a need at QB, big question are they taking Wentz or Goff? Still need to upgrade offensive line.

2). Philadelphia Eagles: Jared Goff, QB, California: Eagles sold the farm to seemingly get whichever Qb the Rams don’t want.

3). San Diego Chargers: Jalen Ramsey, CB/S, Florida: The trades above them , let the best corner in the draft fall in their lap.

4). Dallas Cowboys: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State: With Hardy always one mess up away from being gone and Randy Gregory’s problems, this looks like a no-brainer.

5). Jacksonville Jaguars: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA:  From what I am told the Jaguars are planning on concentrating on strengthening their front 7.

6).  Baltimore Ravens:  Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss: The two trades at the top of the draft will have a huge affect on the Ravens, they will snatch up the best tackle in this draft quickly.

7). San Francisco 49ers: DeForest Buckner, DE/DT, Oregon: Buckner would be a great pick here, hands down best defensive lineman in this draft.

8). Cleveland Browns: Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio.St: Would be a popular pick in Cleveland, could trade down and accumulate even more picks though.

9). Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB, Georgia: Floyd may not seem like a logical fit for a 4-3, but Tampa would use him like Anthony Barr.

10). New York Giants:Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida: He doesn’t fill a pressing need, but the team has no depth at cornerback. That’s a problem, since it’s a must to have three viable corners in this day and age. Hargreaves could eventually step in as a starter once Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie moves on. This is a team that badly needs depth on defense.

11). Chicago Bears:Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson: Need to upgrade defensive line and Lawson could make an immediate impact.

12). New Orleans Saints: Jack Conklin, OT/G, Michigan State: Need to protect Brees, rest of the draft need to be on the defensive side of the ball and a receiver.

13). Miami Dolphins:  Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame: Definite need.

14). Oakland Raiders: Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville: Raiders getting Rankins would be a huge boost to an already solid defense.

15). Tennessee Titans: Taylor Decker, OT/G, Ohio State: Had to settle for Decker, but he is still a huge improvement over what they have.

16). Detroit Lions: Jarran Reed, DE/DT, Alabama: Need to upgrade the defensive line and this is the best player available.

17). Atlanta Falcons: Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State: I believe the Falcons are targeting Lee and if he is their won’t let him get away.

18). Indianapolis Colts:  Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor: Weak on both sides of the ball on the line, Billings is best available player to fix that,

19). Buffalo Bills: Reggie Ragland, ILB, Alabama: Linebacker play was terrible last year, Ragland will fix that.

20). New York Jets: Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech: Best player available.

21). Washington Redskins: William Jackson, CB, Houston: Need a corner desperately, they will get him here.

22).  Houston Texans: William Fuller, WR, Notre Dame: Fuller opposite of Hopkins is scary!

23). Minnesota Vikings: Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss: The big play receiver the Vikings have need for awhile.

24). Cincinnati Bengals: Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State: With the top 2 receivers gone, I think the Bengals look to add another pass rusher to the team, will attack WR in 2nd round.

25). Pittsburgh Steelers: Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech: Great value pick for the steelers, Fuller would be top 10 if not for injury concerns. Very talented corner.

26). Seattle Seahawks: Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson: Need to upgrade defensive line.

27). Green Bay Packers: Germain Ifedi, OT/G, Texas A&M: Offensive line is in need of a boost if they want to win a super bowl.

28). Kansas City Chiefs: Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn.St: Some might consider this a weird pick, but Alex Smith is into his 30’s and their is a real concern that Smith is not good enough to win you a Super Bowl.

29). Arizona Cardinals: Keanu Neal, S, Florida: Safety help is a huge concern after NFC Championship game.

30). Carolina Panthers:  Shon Coleman, OT, Auburn: This is a reach this high, but best tackle left and Panthers need a good one badly.

31). Denver Broncos: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan.State: Definite need here.
