I'd be thrilled to see either of these players on our team.
Sua ive watched, he reminds me of Vaccaro.

I asked this in another thread.....but between Sua and say Alexander CB, Reed DL, Rankings DL, Ragland ILB, Treadwell WR (or top WR) who do you take?

Well, I was thinking that we might be able to get Su'a or Joseph in the 2nd Round and most, if not all, of the players you mentioned are probably 1st Rounders. So, I'd have to say one of the other players you mentioned. Personally, I like Ragland and Treadwell above the others.

I'm not sure that even Scot M. could answer that question right now.

I should have said that hypothetically all the choices have nearly equivalent grades.

With a strong showing at the combine I think Sua is going to be a 1st round pick. In recent drafts the top S prospects went in the 1st round.

The scouting process is no doubt ever evolving, from watching tape to the combine to physicals and to personal contact to background checks. But I'm sure Scot and the scouting department have current grades on the prospects.

I wonder how much of the forum would meltdown if Scot drafted a WR? WRs are hard to find and its rare to be in position to draft a top WR prospect.

Ragland would be a nice match of player with need.

I would lean towards Alexander.

A top WR can change a game.

DJax isn't a true number 1 even though he can change the way a defense plays us. He can't take over a game with a ton of targets.

We need a guy who can take over a game with 10 to 12 targets. Big, tall, somebody the QB can throw the ball to when he is not quite open and can win.

Right now Jordan Reed is the closest thing we have:

2015 NFL Player Receiving Stats - National Football League - ESPN

A dominant receiver would be awesome, and help Kirk, and the running game to boot.

Re: 2016 CBS/NFLdraftscout Big Board

PFF痴 draft*board is here.*While we have two full years of grading on every FBS player, the board is not strictly based on the grades though it痴 heavily influenced by our snap-to-snap evaluations. Our analysts have gone back into the film room to break down each prospect in even more depth, bringing context to their PFF grade while also considering athleticism, upside, and any other relevant part of player evaluation. Our evaluations will continue right up until the draft, so the board is a fluid process, and we値l continue to build it right up until Day 1.

Positional value is taken into account when compiling the board.

Joey Bosa, edge defender, Ohio State

The best player in the draft has been the nation痴 top edge defender against the run while ranking first and second as a pass rusher each of the last two seasons.

DeForest Buckner, defensive interior, Oregon

Similar to Bosa, Buckner was the most productive interior defensive lineman by a wide margin. He痴 a playmaker against the run and able to get into the backfield as a pass rusher.

Jared Goff, QB, Cal

The top-graded QB in the nation this season after ranking eighth a year ago, Goff痴 combination of pocket presence, toughness under pressure, and downfield accuracy make him the top option.

Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

There痴 some projection to Wentz痴 game, but the raw tools are impressive, as was our first look at his game. While his timing isn稚 always on point in the passing game, he has the big arm and athleticism to mask that inexperience as he grows.

Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

With six strong games under his belt in 2015, we壇 like to see a larger sample size of dominant play, but Tunsil is an explosive run blocker and he handled an impressive slate of edge rushers to allow only five pressures on the year.

Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

Our top coverage linebacker in 2014, Jack played only 207 snaps in 2015 due to injury. He痴 versatile enough to move around the formation while holding his own in coverage and he痴 powerful when attacking blocks in the run game.

Jalen Ramsey, CB/S, Florida State

The biggest question about Ramsey is where he plays in the NFL, but his versatility should make him a solid option at either cornerback or safety. He put together two strong years of grades despite playing at free safety, in the slot, and outside cornerback.

Chris Jones, defensive interior, Mississippi State

The power is the first thing that stands out, and it was put to good use as Jones ranked fourth in the nation among interior defensive linemen at +54.2. He can move blockers at the point of attack and push the pocket, and he still has room to grow as a player.

Sheldon Rankins, Defensive Interior, Louisville

With two straight years of dominant play, Rankins can play a number of positions along the defensive front, attacking blockers in the run game while providing a strong pass rush. He has only two negatively-graded games in our two seasons of data.

Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor

Whether creating separation before the catch or yards after it, Coleman痴 athleticism stands out. He has the ability to make plays at all levels of the field.

Shaq Lawson, edge defender, Clemson

The second-best all-around edge defender behind Bosa, Lawson is strong on the edge in the run game while posting the No. 8*pass rushing grade in the class.

Noah Spence, edge defender, Eastern Kentucky

We have little information about Spence, but the upside was evident at the Senior Bowl when he dominated practice and carried it into the game. Even though he may not do much as a run defender, Spence痴 burst off the edge and pass rush potential is the best in the class.

William Jackson III, CB, Houston

The second-best coverage grade in the draft class, Jackson is an aggressive, good-sized corner who will contest a lot of catches and make plays on the defensive side.

Mackenzie Alexander, CB, Clemson

Trapped in a Clemson defensive scheme that hung him out to dry with a lot of soft, off-coverage, Alexander may be a far better pro player than he was in college. Has all the traits of a top, shutdown corner.

Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers

A good combination of speed and separation skills, Carroo was incredibly productive on only 363 snaps last season averaging 4.11 yards per route to lead all FBS receivers.

Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame

One of the most consistent pass protecting tackles in the nation, Stanley should carry that to the next level while his run blocking is sufficient in the right scheme.

Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

A power scheme is ideal for Conklin who moves defenders at the point of attack while holding up well in pass protection. His two-year body of work is right up there with any offensive tackle in the nation on a snap-for-snap basis.

Robert Nkemdiche, Defensive Interior, Ole Miss

Perhaps the most disruptive interior pass rusher in the draft, Nkemdiche has some questions about his ideal fit, but he痴 gotten after the quarterback the last two seasons and he improved greatly against the run in 2015.

Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida

In 2014 Hargreaves posted the best coverage grade we have seen from this draft class across two seasons of college tape. Didn稚 repeat it in 2015 but still shows a lot of impressive tape and ball skills. Only negative is size.

Shilique Calhoun, Edge Defender, Michigan State

No edge rusher had a better pass rushing grade than Calhoun in 2015, and he was strong in that department in 2014 as well. He痴 not nearly as stout against the run, but did show that he can be productive in the run game in 2014.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

The best all-around running back in the draft and perhaps the nation, Elliott boasted the top run grade in the class in 2014 and then led the nation as a blocker in 2015. His ability to run, catch and block will put him on the field early and often.

Jaylon Smith, LB, Notre Dame

Injury aside, Smith痴 athleticism stands out and it often shows when in coverage and as a pass rusher. He痴 not bad in the run game, though he痴 not as strong at the point of attack as other linebackers in the class. If healthy, Smith has a chance to be a three-down playmaker at the next level.

Scooby Wright III, LB, Arizona

Few linebackers possess Wright痴 instincts and block-shedding ability, and he looks like a plus run defender in the NFL if he痴 healthy. The question for Wright is his athleticism in space, but we致e seen other linebackers stay productive with similar concerns.

Andrew Billings, defensive interior, Baylor

One of the strongest players in the draft, Billings is stout at the point of attack and perhaps the best nose tackle option in the draft. He was also got after the quarterback among the best in the country the past two seasons.

Josh Doctson, WR, TCU

Our top-graded WR before going down to injury last season, Doctson routinely makes incredible catches, turning off-target throws into big plays. That downfield ability makes him one of the most exciting playmakers in the draft.

Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss

While he doesn稚 create the same kind of separation you壇 like to see from a top wide receiver prospect, Treadwell is strong (though inconsistent) at the catch point and good with the ball in his hands after the catch.

Cody Whitehair, G, Kansas State

After ranking fourth in the nation among offensive tackles in 2014 and first in 2015, Whitehair is projected to move to guard at the next level, something we saw during Senior Bowl week. He acquitted himself well, and he has the potential to be the next successful tackle to guard convert in the NFL.

Sheldon Day, Defensive Interior, Notre Dame

Disruption is the name of the game for Day who excels at shooting gaps, though he could stand to finish better. His overall grade ranked second behind only Buckner among interior defensive linemen in 2015.

Jonathan Bullard, DI, Florida

Our top-graded run defender on the interior in 2015, Bullard is excellent at recognizing blocks, disrupting schemes and making plays. He doesn稚 have a clean positional home, but has the versatility to play all along the defensive line.

Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama

While some of the other linebackers are stronger in certain areas, Ragland is solid across the board. He can work downhill in the running game, and his ability to hold up in coverage and create pressure should make him a third down chess piece at the next level.

Austin Johnson, defensive interior, Penn State

Boasting the No. 3 run stopping grade in the nation in 2015, Johnson beats blockers with quick hands to disrupt the backfield and that bodes well for his upside as a pass rusher. His skills were on display with a strong week at the Senior Bowl.

Adolphus Washington, defensive interior, Ohio State

Another strong all-around player, Washington is stout at the point of attack, but strong and quick enough to blow up plays as well. His +32.0 pass rush grade ranked third in the nation and he was solid*in the run game.

Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State

Production took a hit due to inconsistent quarterback play, but Thomas knows how to get open and he was a big play threat when targeted.

Sterling Shepard, WR, Oklahoma

Our top-graded wide receiver in 2015, Shepard combines nifty route running with underrated downfield ball skills. Even though most of his work is done from the slot, he has the quickness to produce and validate his standing at the top of the draft.

Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas

Few tight ends can work the middle of the field like Henry who has averaged 14.3 yards per reception over the last two years. He痴 only dropped two of his 90 catchable targets during that time.

Jarran Reed, defensive interior, Alabama

With our second-best grade against the run in 2015, Reed is rarely moved at the point of attack and he knows how to shed in make plays, as indicated by his nation-leading run stop percentage of 13.4 percent. He can play nose tackle, but also looks the part of a 3-4 defensive end if needed.

Kenny Clark, defensive interior, UCLA

Another strong interior defensive lineman, Clark is excellent at feeling and defeating all types of blocks a big reason he was the No. 2 interior defensive lineman against the run in 2014. He took a slight step back in that area in 2015, but added more pass rush to his game.

Emmanuel Ogbah, edge defender, Oklahoma State

A one-dimensional player in 2015, Ogbah boasted the third-best pass rush grade among all edge rushers, though he settled in around average against the run. The potential is there to improve in that department but it may limit his usage early on.

Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis

The size and arm strength are impressive, as is Lynch痴 three-year development at Memphis, but he痴 just a notch below the other quarterbacks in this class. His accuracy at the intermediate level is concerning, particularly outside the numbers where his accuracy percentage is among the worst in the nation.

Joe Schobert, OLB, Wisconsin

One of the nation痴 most productive players the last two seasons, Schobert may be viewed as a traditional linebacker at the next level, but he should be given a chance to rush the passer where he ranked fourth in pass rush productivity in 2015 and led the nation in 2014.

Re: 2016 CBS/NFLdraftscout Big Board

Pick No. 1
TEN
Laremy Tunsil
OT
Mississippi
The Titans could really use an impact defensive player, but protecting Marcus Mariota is No. 1 on the to-do list.

Pick No.2
CLE
Carson Wentz
QB
North Dakota St.
The Browns have no choice but to address the QB position and Wentz is built to play in the AFC North.

Pick No.3
SD
Jalen Ramsey
CB
Florida St.
The Chargers could look at the DL with this choice, but Ramsey would be an outstanding replacement for Eric Weddle.

Pick No.4
DAL
Myles Jack
OLB
UCLA
The Cowboys are in a great spot to draft Tony Romo's successor, but they could opt to load up and make a championship run in 2016.

Pick No.5
JAC
Joey Bosa
DE
Ohio St.
The Jaguars need to address the defense and Bosa could team up with last year's top pick, Dante Fowler Jr., to produce a dynamic pass rush.

Pick No.6
BAL
DeForest Buckner
DE
Oregon
The Ravens usually stick to their draft board and take the best player available. Buckner has a high ceiling and a high floor.

Pick No.7
SF
Jared Goff
QB
California
There's a lot of buzz about the 49ers' growing faith in Blaine Gabbert, but it would take considerable courage to bypass a talented signal-caller in your own backyard.

Pick No.8
MIA
Jaylon Smith
OLB
Notre Dame
Even if Smith has to miss a portion of the the 2016 campaign, he's worthy of a top-10 selection.

Pick No.9
TB
Vernon Hargreaves
CB
Florida
The Bucs need to add a playmaker to the back end, and Hargreaves has very good ball skills.

Pick No.10
NYG
Noah Spence
DE
Eastern Kentucky
Spence comes with some baggage, but he's a very gifted edge rusher and he would provide a much-needed lift to the Giants' defensive front.

Pick No.11
CHI
Darron Lee
OLB
Ohio St.
The Bears need to add some speed and athleticism to the linebacker spot and Lee is supremely explosive.

Pick No.12
NO
Sheldon Rankins
DT
Louisville
Rankins was dominant at the Senior Bowl and he would provide the Saints with a very disruptive interior presence.

Pick No.13
PHI
Vernon Butler
DT
Louisiana Tech
The buzz on Butler is building following an outstanding week at the Senior Bowl.

Pick No.14
OAK
Ezekiel Elliott
RB
Ohio St.
Oakland has a solid young running back in Latavius Murray, but Elliot is an elite talent and too good to pass up.

Pick No.15
STL
Paxton Lynch
QB
Memphis
Lynch would fit nicely alongside a very young offensive nucleus in Los Angeles.

Pick No.16
DET
Ronnie Stanley
OT
Notre Dame
The Lions have some good young pieces on the offensive line and Stanley would be a nice upgrade at left tackle.

Pick No.17
ATL
Leonard Floyd
OLB
Georgia
I'd love to see Floyd and Vic Beasley rushing from opposite sides. That would be some serious speed coming off the edge.

Pick No.18
IND
Jack Conklin
OT
Michigan St.
Conklin isn't flashy, but he's very reliable, tough and instinctive.

Pick No.19
BUF
Laquon Treadwell
WR
Mississippi
Treadwell would be a perfect complement to Sammy Watkins.

Pick No.20
NYJ
Reggie Ragland
ILB
Alabama
Ragland would put up monster numbers playing behind the Jets' talented defensive line.

Pick No.21
WAS
Robert Nkemdiche

DT
Mississippi
The Redskins continue to build through the trenches and secure one of the most talented defenders in the draft.


Pick No.22
HOU
Taylor Decker
OT
Ohio St.
The Texans could look at a WR here, but Decker is a plug-and-play starter at tackle.

Pick No.23
MIN
Corey Coleman
WR
Baylor
Coleman would team up with Stefon Diggs to provide Teddy Bridgewater with two young and explosive playmakers.

Pick No.24
CIN
Vonn Bell
FS
Ohio St.
Bell lacks ideal size, but he's very instinctive and he gets his hands on a lot of footballs.

Pick No.25
PIT
Mackensie Alexander
CB
Clemson
The Steelers need to add some youth to the back end and Alexander is very polished and physical.

Pick No.26
SEA
A'Shawn Robinson
DT
Alabama
The Seahawks could take some hits in free agency at the position and Robinson has enormous upside.

Pick No.27
GB
Kevin Dodd
DE
Clemson
The Packers need to get younger and more athletic off the edge. Dodd is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Pick No.28
KC
Jarran Reed
DT
Alabama
Reed can dominate against the run and he has some upside as a pass rusher.

Pick No.29
ARI
Kamalei Correa
DE
Boise St.
Correa has a great get-off, plenty of production and an unrelenting motor.

Pick No.30
CAR
Eli Apple
CB
Ohio St.
Apple has great size and he would fit well into the scheme in Carolina.

Pick No.31
DEN
Andrew Billings
NT
Baylor
The Broncos could take a hit at the DT position in free agency and Billings is ready to play right away.

Lance Zierlein | Mock 2.0

2016 NFL Mock Drafts : Mock draft 2.0: Eagles set sights on future

1. Pick No.
1

Laremy Tunsil
OT
Mississippi
Why not protect the face of the franchise, Marcus Mariota, with a future All-Pro left tackle?
2. Pick No.
2

Jared Goff
QB
California

We all remember that Hue Jackson thought Carson Palmer would solve all of the Raiders' problems back in 2011. One has to wonder if he might believe the same thing with Goff, who might be Palmer-lite.
3. Pick No.
3

DeForest Buckner
DE
Oregon
Finding big men who can rush the passer isn't easy to do, but Buckner has size, length, athleticism and an ability to get after the quarterback. Rare traits get drafted early.
4. Pick No.
4

Jalen Ramsey
CB
Florida St.
Ramsey is viewed as a safety by many NFL teams, but whether he's a cornerback or a safety, he's a premium athlete with range and cover skills, which is something Dallas could use. His name will be red-hot after he smashes it at the combine.
5. Pick No.
5

Myles Jack
OLB
UCLA

I'm sure the Jaguars would love to see Jalen Ramsey slip to them, but Jack wouldn't be a bad consolation prize. Gus Bradley's defense covets hybrid athletes who can be moved around the field. Coach Bradley, meet Myles Jack.
6. Pick No.
6

Joey Bosa
DE
Ohio St.

The Ravens are getting old off the edge and pass rushing is always a valued commodity by Ozzie Newsome. Bosa has the size, athleticism and mindset to be a perfect fit for the Ravens' style.
7. Pick No.
7

Paxton Lynch
QB
Memphis

While I don't believe that most would put Lynch here, Chip Kelly's offense has never been fully realized since he's been in the league and Lynch, with his size and athleticism, would be an ideal trigger-man for the future if Kelly isn't sold on Colin Kaepernick's future value as a starter.
8. Pick No.
8

Ronnie Stanley
OT
Notre Dame
The Dolphins are in desperate need of offensive line help and Stanley could be a plug-and-play starter on the right side. Branden Albert will be a potential cap casualty after 2016, which would allow the team to save money while swinging Stanley to the left side.
9. Pick No.
9

Vernon Hargreaves
CB
Florida
This would be a tough spot for the Bucs because they need pass rush and cornerback help badly. Hargreaves doesn't have the size most teams want, but he's an immediate starter while some of the pass rushers available here might not be.
10. Pick No.
10

Kevin Dodd
DE
Clemson
This isn't a great year for edge rushers, but Dodd has high football character, size and projectable qualities that lead me to believe he can be a quality NFL pass rusher.
11. Pick No.
11

A'Shawn Robinson
DT
Alabama
Vic Fangio benefited from a physical, tone-setting defensive front in San Francisco. Robinson gets Chicago a step closer to that type of defensive line.
12. Pick No.
12

Noah Spence
DE
Eastern Kentucky

Spence is a great redemption story. He overcame drug addiction and a ban from the Big Ten to turn his life around. The Saints absolutely must address their pass rush and while I'm not this high on Spence, I know people around the league who believe he'll become a force.
13. Pick No.
13

Carson Wentz
QB
North Dakota St.

The Eagles are moving on from #TeamChip, but they still need to find a franchise player to lead them to greatness. Wentz wouldn't be ready right away, but his potential is worth the investment for the Eagles.
14. Pick No.
14

Jaylon Smith
OLB
Notre Dame
If Smith comes back from his injury at 100 percent and the Raiders are able throw Smith and Khalil Mack at offenses game in and game out ... then ... I don't even know what to say. Smith would be a "best-talent-available" selection here.
15. Pick No.
15

Laquon Treadwell
WR
Mississippi

I'm expecting a very pedestrian 40-yard dash time by Treadwell that will open up a round of discussions about his draft value. While I'm not in love with taking a wide receiver in this spot, he's ultra-competitive and steps in immediately to help the offense.
16. Pick No.
16

Jack Conklin
OT
Michigan St.
Conklin is a Michigan State grinder who can have an immediate impact with the running game and might be able to play on the left or right. While he's not as athletic as Detroit might like, he brings a toughness to the table that will appeal to the Lions.
17. Pick No.
17

Shaq Lawson
DE
Clemson
While he's not a pure-edge-speed guy, his hustle and power get him sack opportunities. He's a good power player to go along with Vic Beasley's finesse style.
18. Pick No.
18

Leonard Floyd
OLB
Georgia
I'm sure the Colts would love to plug an offensive lineman in here, but would reaching make sense? Floyd, it could be argued, might be a reach, but he has tremendous pass-rush traits and simply needs time to fill out that lanky frame.
19. Pick No.
19

Robert Nkemdiche
DT
Mississippi

While the talent and the traits should dictate an earlier slotting for Nkemdiche, fears about his character could cause him to drop. Rex Ryan won't care.
20. Pick No.
20

Vernon Butler
DT
Louisiana Tech
Surprise! With Mo Wilkerson's contract talks bogged down, franchising him makes sense, but finding a future replacement with pass-rushing ability along the defensive front makes sense as well.
21. Pick No.
21

Mackensie Alexander
CB
Clemson
The Redskins have to find an athletic cover corner to match up against the talented receivers inside the division. While Alexander's height is a little bit of a turnoff to some teams, his confidence and aggressiveness could make him the choice here.

22. Pick No.
22

Ezekiel Elliott
RB
Ohio St.

I plugged Elliott in here in my last mock draft and I will do so again now. The argument can and will be made that running backs rarely carry first-round value anymore, but Elliott is a clear exception since he never has to leave the field.
23. Pick No.
23

Cody Whitehair
OG
Kansas St.
The Vikings could go in a number of directions here, but I'll plug them in with quality at a need position. Whitehair is rock-steady and a Day 1, long-time starter for the Vikings. He's a solid core selection in the trenches.
24. Pick No.
24

Reggie Ragland
ILB
Alabama
The Bengals might also consider someone like Jarran Reed or Darron Lee here, but Ragland is a low-maintenance version of Vontaze Burfict who can play inside or outside. Ragland also showed some potential as an edge rusher in sub-packages during Senior Bowl week.
25. Pick No.
25

Hunter Henry
TE
Arkansas
Kevin Colbert believes in targeting the best players available. I don't see a quality cornerback available here and Henry has rare blocking talent to go along with his ability as a pass catcher. Henry could step in tomorrow and take over a starting spot.
26. Pick No.
26

Sheldon Rankins
DT
Louisville

While offensive tackle might be the need pick here, I'm betting on GM John Schneider taking the better talent at another position of need. Rankins isn't the biggest interior defender out there, but you won't find many who have fewer holes.
27. Pick No.
27

Le'Raven Clark
OT
Texas Tech
Clark still has some holes he's working on, but he's athletic and has freakishly long arms. Green Bay understands that they have to improve at the tackle spot and Clark has a very high upside, but a scary floor as well.
28. Pick No.
28

Taylor Decker
OT
Ohio St.
Decker has some holes in his pass-protection game, which should be a significant concern, but he is a dominant run blocker and fits a need the Chiefs are desperate to fill.
29. Pick No.
29

Emmanuel Ogbah
DE
Oklahoma St.
He's not the most dynamic athlete out there as an edge rusher, but he's powerful, productive and can often be too much against finesse tackles trying to protect the edge.
30. Pick No.
30

Will Fuller
WR
Notre Dame
Fuller is going to smoke the 40-yard dash at the combine and we'll all be talking about him after that. On tape, his hands are inconsistent, but he's always getting open, and he's getting open way down the field. Cam Newton has plenty of arm, so why not give him another deep target to score touchdowns with?
31. Pick No.
31

Re: 2016 CBS/NFLdraftscout Big Board

For me, either a talented cornerback or a defensive end sounds 'bout right to me. Or, if neither are there, trade down and get more draft picks. I'm always a fan of more draft picks.

Mocks and Mocks and Mocks

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...-overall-pick/


1. Tennessee Titans Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State

There is change at the top as Ramsey takes over the No. 1 spot for a number of reasons. While Ohio State痴 Joey Bosa is still a favorite of ours, he痴 not a perfect fit for Tennessee痴 scheme, and when given the opportunity to draft a playmaker like Ramsey it痴 difficult to pass that up. He痴 an excellent all-around football player as he can cover, tackle and play the run. For the Titans, he will excel as a zone corner where his length and athleticism allow him to compress passing lanes as he develops his skills as a press man coverage cornerback. He has the size and length to become one of the league痴 best, and given his domination at the combine, the physical attributes are there as well.
2. Cleveland Browns Jared Goff, QB, Cal

There is plenty of reason to believe that the Browns are hot on the trail of North Dakota State痴 Carson Wentz, but Goff痴 advantage in essential quarterback traits is difficult to ignore. He reads the field quickly, moves around the pocket like a veteran, and gets the ball out of his hand with a quick release. He痴 not a perfect prospect, as velocity can become an issue when forced to reset his base, but Goff痴 body of work as PFF痴 No. 8 quarterback in 2014 and top-rated signal caller in 2015 makes him the right choice for the Browns.
3. San Diego Chargers DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon

Buckner remains the choice at No. 3 for the Chargers as he痴 a great fit for their 3-4 scheme. He reminds of Calais Campbell of the Arizona Cardinals, not only in size, but also in future projection from a production standpoint. Buckner was a workhorse for Oregon, leading all interior defensive linemen with 951 snaps and playing over 100 snaps in two different games. Even with the heavy workload, he used his length to lead the nation with a +42.8 pass rush grade while ranking eighth against the run at +29.1.
4. Dallas Cowboys Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State

Bosa falls from No. 1 to No. 4 and the Cowboys are the beneficiaries as they get the top-graded edge defender in college football over the last two years. Bosa projects as a top-notch run defender on the edge while providing a punch as a pass rusher, whether going up against tackles on the outside or kicking in to rush against guards. His +44.1 pass rush grade ranked second in the nation among edge defenders in 2015 after leading the way at +56.6 in 2014.
5. Jacksonville Jaguars Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

The linebacker position is more valuable than ever in today痴 NFL, particularly 3-down options that can cover and play the run. Jack can be just that after he led the nation痴 linebackers with a coverage grade of +14.7 in 2014 before coming out in 2015 and attacking blocks in the run game better than ever. While he was limited to only 207 snaps last season, Jack痴 coverage ability and potential against the run give him the required versatility of a top NFL linebacker.
6. Baltimore Ravens Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

Tunsil is an option for a number of teams slotted above, but they made the right choices in going with defensive playmakers. He値l slot in nicely for Baltimore who is expected to release starting left tackle, Eugene Monroe, shortly. Tunsil was limited to only six games, but he handled a great slate of pass rushers (only five pressures on 235 pass blocking attempts) while showing his explosiveness in the run game at +12.1.
7. San Francisco 49ers Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

He may be the option at No 2 overall, but Wentz is a wild card in my draft. An ideal scenario has him sitting and learning initially, perhaps with a team that has an established quarterback later in the first round, but the 49ers could also be a good situation under new head coach Chip Kelly. Wentz has the arm to thrive in a vertical passing offense, but he needs to work on his timing and decision making. The risk may be high, but Wentz痴 potential is through the roof and too difficult to pass up.
8. Miami Dolphins Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida

We致e started to warm up to a number of cornerbacks in the class, but Hargreaves remains the pick for the Dolphins in part because of his skillset that should match up well with the shifty receivers of the division rival New England Patriots. Hargreaves 2015 was a step back from his 2014 season that saw him post the top coverage grade in the nation, but his movement skills and scheme versatility make him a good fit for the Miami defense.
9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor

A different twist on Tampa Bay痴 pick as we致e looked to the defensive side of the ball in previous mocks, but with a lot of question marks surrounding the next best edge rushers behind Bosa, the Bucs grab perhaps the top wide receiver in the draft. QB Jameis Winston already has his big targets in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, but Coleman adds another dimension to the passing game with his ability to create quick separation and pick up yards after the catch.
10. New York Giants Sheldon Rankins, DT, New York Giants

It痴 a similar situation for the Giants who would like to grab an edge rusher here, but Rankins is a great fit on the inside to pair with nose tackle Johnathan Hankins. Rankins two-year production is spectacular as he graded at +55.4 in 2014 to rank second among all interior defensive linemen before a +42.3 effort placed him 16th overall in 2015. He痴 just as comfortable lining head up on a blocker as he is shooting gaps, and that versatile disruptive presence will be a much-needed upgrade for the Giants defense.
11. Chicago Bears Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

With RB Matt Forte getting released, need and value match up well for the Bears as they get one of the best all-around players in the draft. Elliott posted the third overall grade among the nation痴 running backs, showing well as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker while adding some lead blocking to the mix as well. He can cut on a dime and he maximizes runs by finishing well through contact, so expect Elliott to become an immediate three-down option at the next level.
12. New Orleans Saints Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson

The entire defense needs help and Lawson adds a stout presence against the run that can also get after the passer. His +21.9 run grade finished second to only Bosa while adding a +25.9 pass rush grade that ranked 17th in the nation. His progression is only beginning as he played a productive 329 snaps in 2014 before seeing the field for 760 last fall.
13. Philadelphia Eagles William Jackson III, CB, Houston

The first-round hype will continue for Jackson, who was a PFF favorite well before he ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at 6-feet tall at the combine. His size and movement skills project him as a future No. 1 corner, even though there may be some growing pains along the way. In a division with Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham, a 6-foot corner with speed and the No. 3 coverage grade in college football last season makes for a good fit.
14. Oakland Raiders Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State

Another PFF favorite, Jones may have as much upside as any player in the draft. His +54.2 overall grade ranked fourth among interior defensive linemen last season, including a +36.5 pass rush grade that ranked second. He痴 extremely strong at the point of attack, prompting our analysts to bring up New York Jets DE Leonard Williams as a comparable player. Throw in Jones 1.70 10-yard split at 310 pounds, and the burst and strength give him a rare combination that could make him one of the better players to come out of the draft.
15. Los Angeles Rams Josh Doctson, WR, TCU

Still in need of a quarterback, there are no other signal callers worth reaching for at this point, so the Rams will add one of the best receivers in the draft. Doctson had the op receiving grade in the nation last year at +28.9 despite playing only 582 snaps. He痴 coming of a great all-around combine as he showed the same size and speed combination that allowed him to dominate down the field while regularly hauling in spectacular catches with his long frame.
16. Detroit Lions Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame

The pick remains the same for the Lions as they bring in Stanley who graded at +9.6 as a pass blocker and +9.3 in the run game. He痴 better as a pass blocker as he moves well to mirror opposing rushers but he値l struggle with power in the running game. Stanley surrendered only 13 pressures on 458 attempts last season and he can step right into Detroit痴 revolving door at right tackle while potentially pushing LT Riley Reiff out the door in the coming years.
17. Atlanta Falcons Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers

Adding a complement to WR Julio Jones is a must for Atlanta this offseason and Carroo is one of the more underrated options in the draft. He dominated in only 363 snaps last season, grading at +15.0 as a receiver and averaging 4.11 yards per route, good for second in the nation. While he can be inconsistent snap to snap, he痴 shown good burst and separation skills, while dropping only two of 96 catchable passes the last two years. Carroo adds a valuable piece to the Atlanta offense.
18. Indianapolis Colts Noah Spence, OLB, Eastern Kentucky

Another wild card in this draft, Spence may be off a number of team boards due to off-field concerns and an underwhelming combine, but a draft devoid of elite edge rushers may push him back into the first round. The Colts are lacking any burst off the edge, but with capable run-stopping outside linebackers on the roster, this may be the perfect spot for Spence to ease in as a situational pass rusher as he develops against the run. He dominated Senior Bowl week while notching eight pressures in two games against FBS competition.
19. Buffalo Bills Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

One of my favorite scheme matches in the first round, Conklin fits the mauling, run-blocking profile that head coach Rex Ryan is looking for. He痴 ranked fourth as a run blocker each of the last two years and he finished 2015 with only 11 pressures surrendered on 416 attempts. Buffalo痴 power scheme perfectly matches Conklin痴 skillset.
20. New York Jets Shilique Calhoun, OLB, Michigan State

Seemingly forever in the market for an edge rusher, the Jets grab Calhoun who has been as disruptive off the edge as any non-Bosa in the draft. His +46.0 pass rush grade led all edge players in 2015 after ranking fifth in 2014 at +38.5. Though his run defense took a step back last year, Calhoun has the potential to be the top pass rushing edge defender in the draft.

21. Washington Redskins Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama

Boasting a strong all-around game, Ragland was one of a number of standouts in Alabama痴 front-7, grading well against the run (+13.2) and in coverage (+9.8) while successfully blitzing and rushing off the edge at times (+7.7). With one of the worst inside linebacker situations in the NFL, Washington will be watching all of the linebacker prospects very closely.


22. Houston Texans Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss

We have Treadwell going lower than most as his separation skills were unimpressive on tape (other than slant routes) and his downfield ball skills are inconsistent. He痴 still a very good player, but perhaps not the blue chip that everyone assumed heading into the process. He値l complement WR DeAndre Hopkins well-rounded game, adding a possession and red zone threat as the Texans search for their quarterback of the future

23. Minnesota Vikings Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State

The more we致e watched Thomas, the more we致e liked, as the former Buckeye separates better than most in the class and he値l add a necessary intermediate threat to the Minnesota offense. He plays fast, gets on corners quickly, and handles press well, so while Thomas may not be the flashiest pick in the draft, he痴 a valuable weapon for Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater.
24. Cincinnati Bengals Jonathan Bullard, DE/DT, Florida

Just as we said in the last mock, a nose tackle would be a great fit for the Bengals here, but Bullard痴 early down production and position versatility is too much to pass up. He can play base defensive end while sprinkling inside at times, bringing excellent play against the run as he led all interior defensive linemen at +50.5 in 2015. He痴 not as productive as you壇 like as a pass rusher, but he did improve to +7.7 last season and a strong showing at the combine may bode well for him in this department.
25. Pittsburgh Steelers Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas

Even before longtime tight end Heath Miller announced his retirement, the Steelers were in the market for his replacement so nabbing the best option in the draft makes a lot of sense. The sure-handed Henry has only dropped two of 90 catchable passes the last two years, and he has the size and speed to stretch the middle of the field for an already-loaded Pittsburgh passing attack.
26. Seattle Seahawks Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss

Perhaps a risky and somewhat redundant play for Seattle, but Nkemdiche has the potential to become the best interior pass rusher in the draft. He ranked ninth in the nation in that department last year at +23.4, while improving against the run at +11.7. He can play a similar role as Bullard, albeit with different skillsets, as a base defensive end and interior rusher in the mold of current Seahawk, Michael Bennett.
27. Green Bay Packers Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia

Floyd痴 six-five, 244-pound frame will draw plenty of interest around the league, especially after a strong combine that saw him show good lower body explosion and speed. He痴 likely a pure edge defender at the next level, though some teams may be intrigued by the versatility he showed last season as a traditional linebacker. For Green Bay, he値l play on the edge where he can use his developing pass rush skills that ranked fifth in the draft class at +28.9. Floyd also ranked fifth against the run at +18.4, as the frame, athleticism and production all match up into a prospect with a lot of potential at the next level.
28. Kansas City Chiefs Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson

Alexander is best in press man coverage and no team played more man coverage than Kansas City last season. He doesn稚 have the coveted six-foot height, but Alexander has strong movement skills to mirror receivers off the line of scrimmage. While he didn稚 post a great grade (+2.7 in coverage), he was forced to play a lot of 登ff coverage with little underneath help last season in Clemson痴 scheme, but his work as a press corner fits what the Chiefs like to do defensively, especially with Sean Smith hitting free agency.
29. Arizona Cardinals Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State

Apple痴 situation is similar to Alexander痴 as he best fits in a press man coverage scheme, though he does boast the prototypical 6-foot-1 frame. He痴 physical in coverage, if not grabby, though he locks onto receivers as well as any cornerback in the class when he plays press. The problem for Apple is finding the ball in the air, something he rarely does, making him susceptible to back shoulder throws. He痴 also a sloppy open field tackler and inconsistent 登ff coverage cornerback, but Arizona痴 scheme that played the fifth-most man coverage in the NFL should be able to play to his strengths.
30. Carolina Panthers Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State

A polarizing player, Ogbah posted the third-best pass rushing grade in the draft class at +41.9, before turning heads at the combine with top-three finishes in the vertical and broad jumps and the 40-yard dash. He was underwhelming as a run defender, but his length figures to give him a chance at the next level. Ogbah痴 size, burst, and production make him a valuable option at the back end of the first round.
31. Denver Broncos Cody Whitehair, G, Kansas State

Whitehair ranked fourth in the nation among offensive tackles at +35.8 overall in 2014 and followed it up by leading the nation at +40.9 last year. He値l move to guard at the next level where he won稚 be a mauler, but his movement skills and ability to sustain blocks will be a perfect match for Denver痴 zone-blocking scheme.
