Peter Wiseman’s 2016 NFL Mock Draft. (The final edition)

1. Los Angeles Rams 

 Jared Goff, QB, Cal

The Rams felt that they needed to sacrifice the better part of two drafts in order to make a splash on their way back home. Who better to help them do it then the homegrown kid from Cal?

2. Cleveland Browns

 Carson Wentz, QB, NDSU

It’s pretty clear the Browns have their eyes set on drafting their Quarterback of the future. The choice is fairly simple, as the man they want falls right into their lap.

3. San Diego Chargers 

 Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

The Chargers have plenty of holes to fill, but how do you pass up the most freakish athlete in the draft?

4. Dallas Cowboys 

 Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State

The Cowboys don’t often get an opportunity to pick this high. So this is their chance to grab an elite defender.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars 

 Jalen Ramsey, CB, FSU

The Jags have already made plenty of additions this offseason. This kid could turn out to be the best one yet.

6. Baltimore Ravens 

 DeForest Buckner, DT, Oregon

The Ravens defense was a disappointment last year and they certainly will want that to change going into next season. Buckner is a disturbing force up front who should help them accomplish that task.

7. San Francisco 49ers 

 Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

The Niners need to start rebuilding somewhere, and the offensive line seems as good of a place as any when they are about to install a new offense. Tunsil is a well rounded player, and should be a good fit and cornerstone for this team.

8. Philadelphia Eagles 

 Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State 

The Eagles need a consistent running back to take pressure away from their inconsistent passing game. Elliott should be able to provide that and a whole lot more.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers  

 Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida

The Bucs would love for Hargreaves to stay in Florida and bring his flare to this young team on the rise.

10. New York Giants 

 Ronnie Stanley, OT, ND

This offense has quietly reestablished themselves as one of the top units in the league. With Stanley bolstering their line they should only get better.

11. Chicago Bears

 Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson

The Bears get a lot more versatile on defense by adding Lawson here. He brings an instant spark to a defense that needs some life pumped back into it.

12. New Orleans Saints 

 A’Shawn Robinson, DT, Bama

The Saints need help getting pressure on the quarterback and shutting down the run. This man-beast is big enough and quick enough to do both. Robinson could help bring the defense up quickly and make the Saints an instant contender.

13. Miami Dolphins 

 Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State

The Dolphins have spent a lot of time and money over the last two offseasons building a defensive front that can get pressure on the quarterback. With this pick they add an intense playmaker in the backfield who can reap the benefits of those efforts.

14. Oakland Raiders 

 Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss

It’s sounds crazy to even say this, but the Raiders are finally deep enough that they can afford to take a chance on a player. Nkemdiche is a polarizing personality, but if they can get him to save his passion for the field, he could make this scary defense even more frightening for opponents.

15. Tennessee Titans  

 Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame

The Titans need a playmaker who can stretch the field and help open up this offense. Fuller can give them that and so much more.

16. Detroit Lions 

 Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville 

The Lions need to rebuild their defensive line in order to get back to the dominance they once enjoyed. Adding Rankins will give them that big disturbing force they’ve been missing.

17. Atlanta Falcons  

 Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss

The Falcons have lost a bunch of offensive weapons over the last few years. Treadwell gives them a nice compliment to Julio Jones, and another target for Matt Ryan.

18. Indianapolis Colts 

 Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State

Keeping Andrew Luck healthy and on the field should be the number one priority for the Colts this season. Adding this big bodied Buckeye should help them accomplish that goal.

19. Buffalo Bills 

 Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia

Floyd will give the Bills the speed they need on the edge as they continue to improve their defense.

20. New York Jets 

 Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis

The Jets need to find a permanent solution at the quarterback position. Lynch is tall, quick, and versatile, and has a good enough arm to distribute the ball to an outstanding group of receivers.

21. Washington Redskins 

 Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

The Redskins believe they have their quarterback of the future. Adding Conklin should help keep him upright for years to come.

22. Houston Texans 

 Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor

The Texans signed a running back and quarterback in free agency. Selecting Coleman here gives them another valuable weapon for their rising offense.

23. Minnesota Vikings 

 Josh Doctson, WR, TCU

The Vikings don’t seem ready to give up on underachieving quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. This pick should give him another chance to try to prove his value to the team.

24. Cincinnati Bengals 

 Braxton Miller, WR Ohio State

The Bengals need help at wide receiver. Miller gives them a ton of versatility, speed and playmaking ability at the position.

25. Pittsburgh Steelers  

 William Jackson III, CB, Houston 

Cornerback is a big need for the Steelers. This kid gives them a long, athletic frame to help shore up their backfield.

26. Seattle Seahawks  

 Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson

We all know the Seahawks covet defensive playmakers. Selected Dodd here will give them another destructive force up front.

27. Green Bay Packers 

 Reggie Ragland, LB, Bama

The Packers fill their biggest need with this selection. Ragland is one of the most exciting players in the draft and will very soon be a fan favorite in Green Bay.

28. Kansas City Chiefs 

 Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State

The Chiefs improve an already strong defense with this pick. Lee is explosively fast and will make this unit even more dangerous.

29. Arizona Cardinals 

 Artie Burns, CB, Miami

Burns brings intensity and playmaking ability to an already strong Cardinals Defense.

30. Carolina Panthers 

 Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State

Could the Panthers defense get any scarier? Adding Ogbah here should be a definitive answer to that question.

31. Denver Broncos  

 Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State

The Broncos are growing more and more desperate for a quarterback. Hackenberg may not appear ready to lead an NFL team, but he seems to fit the mold of what they are looking for and gives them another arm to throw into the competition.

  1. Nice Mock. Goff is polished and what a story it’d be for the Rams to draft the hometown kid at #1 overall! Cleveland passing up on Bosa, Ramsey or Jack for Carson Wentz? Wentz has visited Philly 5 times which shows their interest. The Browns have been shopping the #2 pick. If Goff goes #1, the Birds could trade up to the #2 spot and snag Wentz. I like this Mock because the Eagles have shown interest in Elliot too so you never know.
    Tunsil tumbled to pick #7, 4qbs in the 1st round and Treadwell to the Falcons. Nice. Fuller at pick #15 though? Hackenberg in round 1? Guess it’s possible considering the reaching for QBs that occurs nowadays. Artie Burns and Braxton Miller round 1?
    The Panthers adding Ogbah would be defensive mayhem for opponents but passing up on RB Henry with an aging Stewart on a run first offense?
