Mock Draft V 4 – Yeah I’m all in now

2016_NFL_Draft_0_0

All in with quarterbacks that is.  I’ve taken the bait.  Who knows if I will be right (Spoiler Alert: probably not) but it’s kind of fun to just go with the trend and move quarterbacks up into the first round.  Fuck it, like it matters in the end.

Fun-Time Notes

  • We are now up to seven quarterbacks in the first two rounds. It seems more and more like Philadelphia and San Francisco are going to draft quarterbacks (and that they might trade up to get the one they want COUGH*Carson Wentz*COUGH).  Welcome Dak Prescott and Cardale Jones to the draft board everyone.  Two supremely talented college quarterbacks that could be, at the very least, decent backups in the NFL.  Plus they both like to run and have little regard for the safety of their own bodies.
  • Will Tennessee trade the number one pick? It wouldn’t surprise me.  Saying that, I still believe Laremy Tunsil is a lock for the #1 pick unless the Eagles trade up into that spot.  That’s the only way someone who is pretty much Bizarro Tunsil (Wentz) could be drafted number one.
  • I’ve dropped Joey Bosa to 9, Vernon Hargreaves to 12, and Noah Spence all the way to 17. This is more of other guys stepping up through their respective Pro Days rather than these three falling for any conceivable reason (although Spence didn’t exactly light it up at the Combine).

This has become very interesting.  I could see upwards of four trades involving the first ten picks which is unheard of.  Even more than one trade that early on makes the heads of the experts at ESPN and the NFL Network explode.  Mel Kiper might do laps.  Mike Mayock may chug an entire bottle of Jack Daniels.  It could get insane.  Or at least more so than it usually is.

You have just witnessed my last mock draft for the 2016 NFL Draft brought to you by Verizon (or some other massive corporation).  We are 17 days away now so unless something crazy happens, I am sticking with what I’ve got.  This year, I plan to switch it up and will watch the ESPN draft feed instead of the NFL Network broadcast.  Only fair since the last two drafts I watched mostly the NFL Network.  I’m assume it will be equal parts introspective, entertaining, and shitshow-like.

This will probably be my last post until after the draft.  I may throw down something great….who am I kidding, I know I won’t.  Working on the college schedule right now and am gearing up for the annual Most Important Games list which will come out possibly in late May if everything works out.
