FROM A CORNER OF THE LIVING ROOM SOMEWHERE ON 4th AVE………. LUPAGUS PRESENTS HIS MIDSEASON 2016 NFL MOCK DRAFT!!!!!!
Updated Nov 12
I think I’ll call this Version….Jasmine
UPDATE IN PROGRESS!!!!!!!
1. Detroit Lions – Robert Nkemdiche DT, Ole Miss
The Lions desperately miss Suh in the middle of their defensive line. So at this point they go Nkemdiche over Bosa but that can and will change many times throughout the 2016 Draftseason.
2. San Diego Chargers – Ronnie Stanley OT, Notre Dame
The Chargers very well could take their QB of the future here in Jared Goff, but with the way Rivers has been playing, decide to ride the old boy out. If they do that, they’ll need to protect him much better. Right now Stanley and Tunsil are neck and neck as the best lineman available.
3. Cleveland Browns – LaQuan Treadwell WR, Ole Miss
This may be a bit early but the Browns HAVE to grab a potential no. 1 receiver in this year’s draft. Of course I’ve been saying that for three years now……..
4. Jacksonville Jaguars – Joey Bosa DE, Ohio St.
The Jags simply go BPA here and now have a crazy scary d-line with Bosa and Fowler wreaking havoc.
5. Tennessee Titans – Jalen Ramsey CB/S, FSU
The Titans add a big time playmaker to their secondary here. Ramsey can play safety or corner and does both well. He can support the run and has the lanky frame to blanket receivers in coverage.
6. Baltimore Ravens – Jaylon Smith OLB, Notre Dame
The Ravens could go WR but the value isn’t here. So they take one of the best talents left on the board and get an heir to Terrell Suggs.
7. Dallas Cowboys – Jared Goff QB, CAL
The Cowboys luck out as the top QB in the Draft slides to them here. Tony Romo is great but age and injuries have caught up with him. Goff can be groomed into the next great Cowboy’s QB.
8. San Francisco 49ers – Laremy Tunsil OT, Ole Miss
The 9ers could pull the trigger on a QB here but I’m not sure they are giving up on their investment in Kaepernick just yet. So instead they go with Tunsil here and consider him a replacement for Joe Staley who will be turning 32 at the start of the 2016 season.
9. Miami Dolphins – Vernon Hargreaves CB, Florida
The Dolphins secondary has been an issue this season so they keep Vernon in state and bolster it. Hargreaves doesn’t have elite size but is a smooth operator who is technically sound and can cover like a lush blanket.
10. Chicago Bears – Paxton Lynch QB, Memphis
The Bears and Jay Cutler are coming to a mutual end and chances are they grab their QB of the future with their likely top 12 pick. Lynch has sky rocketed up draft boards as of late with a combination of size, release, arm strength, and good ol’ fashioned sexiness.
11. Tampa Bay Bucs – DeForest Buckner DE, Oregon
The Bucs are likely to go offensive line or pass rusher here. The way the board shakes out right here Buckner is the best value. He can provide much needed pressure off the edge and help restore the Bucs defense to the way it was in the early aughts.
12. Kansas City Chiefs – Jack Conklin OT, Michigan St.
The Cheifs offensive line has been a real problem this season. Look for them to try to fix it here by taking Conklin to shore up the left tackle position. Of course it was just a few years ago they did the same thing with the first overall pick and that didn’t quite pan out.
13. Houston Texans – Ezekiel Elliot RB, Ohio St.
The Texans really need a QB and could definitely pull the trigger on a QB like Kessler or Cook here. Right now I’m going to have them address another sexy need on offense and get their RB of the future in Elliot.
14. Washington Redskins – Kendall Fuller CB, Va. Tech
Here is another team that has to be considering a QB. But again the value just isn’t there. The ‘Skins secondary is also a mess and adding a talented cover man with great bloodlines like Fuller, would be a move heavily applauded by the Draft community.
15. New Orleans Saints – Kenny Clark DT, UCLA
The Saints defense has been getting scorched lately. Adding a penetrating defensive tackle won’t fix it, but it sure as hell won’t hurt it either.
16. St. Louis Rams – Josh Doctson WR, TCU
The Rams may sport one of the worst WR corps in the league. They really should add some talent early in the 2016 draft here. Doctson has great speed and hands, and would probably start from day one.
