Nicholas McGee’s Mock Draft

Written by Nicholas McGee on February 12, 2016

Joey Bosa

With the Super Bowl now done and dusted, draft season is in full swing, and NFL teams will be looking towards finalizing their boards.

Much can change between now and April, however, and – with the combine around the corner – expect rankings and mock drafts to alter in the coming weeks.

Still, there is enough information out there to have a good idea of the positions teams will try to address in the draft, so here’s my first look at how things could unfold in the first round in Chicago.

Mock drafts at this point in the process are more about projecting players to slot ranges than trying to accurately predict what the teams are going to actually do come draft weekend. Here’s a tip: the teams don’t know what they’re going to do yet either.

So this mock is about expanding the realm of possibility, changing the thought horizon. These selections do not mesh with my personal choices, but reflect one way things might unfold. Remember, your favorite NFL team seldom does exactly what you want them to do or think they should do. Trust me on this, I’m a Lions fan from Cleveland. Free your mind and the rest will follow…

  • Tennessee Titans – Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss
  • This seems to be the popular choice at the top, and it is for good reason. Tunsil will be the highest-rated offensive lineman I’ve scouted since Joe Thomas. (read more…)


    Post-Senior Bowl 2016 NFL Mock Draft

    Written by Bryan Perez on February 1, 2016

    tunsil

    Now that the Senior Bowl is in the books, the next event on the 2016 NFL Draft calendar is February’s Scouting Combine.  It will be the first time that the juniors and redshirt sophomores join this year’s draft party, and the event’s results will have long-reaching effects on the draft’s first round and beyond.

    The Senior Bowl proved that this year’s draft is a strong one along the defensive line.  Teams in need of a beefy run stuffer or quick-twitch pass rusher should find what they’re looking for in the first round.  The Senior Bowl also strengthened the claim that North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz is a franchise quarterback who is worthy of early first-round consideration.

    Despite the narratives that were advanced in Mobile, Alabama, the No. 1 pick is still likely to be an underclassman with Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil and Ohio State EDGE Joey Bosa leading the (read more…)


    Chris Nicolaou’s Mock v1.0

    Mock

    The 2016 Super Bowl participants are now determined and the Senior Bowl is coming up, so now I thought it would be a good time to squeeze in my first Mock Draft of 2016. There are some surprises and will be disappointments for many, but remember: Eric Kendricks and Landon Collins didn’t get chosen in Round 1 of the 2015 NFL Draft, but Cameron Erving and Phillip Dorsett did. Lets have some fun, shall we?


    Divisional Playoffs Two-Round Mock Draft

    Written by Matt LaPan on January 13, 2016

    mock-header

    After a wild week of Wild Card playoff games, teams are in full preparation for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. For most teams, the season is over and draft preparation is in full swing. With the Senior Bowl fast approaching, the draft order is sure to be turned on its head after players perform well for scouts in Mobile, Alabama.  Before then, let’s take a look at who teams could be looking at.


    2015 Year-End Mock Draft

    Written by Matt LaPan on December 27, 2015

    mock-header

    As 2015 comes to an end and college football’s bowl season rolls on, many are starting to attach names to their team for the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft.

    Teams are starting to fit into their draft positions, but each week there is a ton of movement in the middle of the 1st round. With the Tennessee Titans still holding the top spot in the upcoming draft, how will they build on last year’s first rounder Marcus Mariota? Can the Dallas Cowboys get the impact player they need to help them bounce back in 2016?

    With my final mock of 2015, allow the comments, both positive and negative, to flow before 2016 hits either here or on Twitter.


    ‘Tis the Season To Be Mocking: Perez’s 2016 NFL Mock Draft, 1.0

    Written by Bryan Perez on December 17, 2015

    It’s that time of year.  Holiday shopping, Christmas music, snow (or in the case of the east coast, unseasonably warm and rainy weather), and of course mock drafts.

    Writing a mock draft can be more frustrating than fighting for a parking spot at the mall a few days before Christmas.  It’s irritating.  It brings on stress, anger, even rage.  Why do we do it?  Why do we put ourselves through the guaranteed frustration that comes from reading the comments section of our work?  Those comments hurt like an ACL after a hard jab step on AstroTurf.

    Is there still AstroTurf?

    I know why I write mock drafts:  I do it because I love it.  I love trying to create structure around an inherently chaotic and impossible-to-predict process.  I know that my mock draft is unlikely to be the most accurate (well, except for 2014 when I did win the Huddle Report’s mock draft (read more…)


    Luke Easterling’s 2016 Mock Draft 2.0

    Written by Luke Easterling on November 25, 2015

    It’s been a little over a month since my first stab at a 2016 mock draft, and plenty has changed regarding the landscape of the potential draft order. There are still some surprises in the order if the season ended right now (Tampa Bay picking in the latter half, Dallas in the top 10, Jacksonville on the cusp of making it out of the early third), but there’s still a lot of football to be played, and it will be interesting to see how things shake out over these final six weeks.

    These kinds of early projections are nothing more than conversation-starters, as free agency and underclassmen decisions will have a significant impact on how the first round actually looks come Spring. But it’s never too early to start talking about the possibilities, so let’s look at one of a million difference scenarios that could come together in the (read more…)


    Luke Easterling’s Way-Too-Early 2016 NFL Mock Draft

    Written by Luke Easterling on October 21, 2015

    Just like naming your future kids with your first middle-school crush or declaring that 98 Degrees would become the greatest boy band of all time, it’s way too early to start making projections for next year’s NFL Draft.

    But hey, that didn’t stop you from settling on Ashley and Joshua or plastering Nick Lachey posters all over your wall, so why let it stop us now?

    Here’s my first stab at how the first round might shake out.

    Note: The New England Patriots were stripped of their 1st-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft due to…well, you know.

    Week 5 NFL Mock Draft: Detroit Lions in line for pick of the litter

    Written by Pete Smith on October 13, 2015

    Joey Bosa

    Using the Power Rankings courtesy of Elliot Harrison at NFL.com, here is the Week 5 edition of the first round mock draft.  Unfortunately, the number of injuries to high-profile players continues to rise.  Medicals will become even more important than it already is for the class of 2016.

    There are a few new names in this mock as players continue to separate from the pack (and I continue to gain more exposure to the likely class).  Let me know your thoughts in the comments section or via twitter!
