2016 NFL Mock Draft April 20, 2016 All 7 Rounds

2016 Mock Draft All 7 Rounds According to cbssportsline.com

Round 1

1. Los Angeles Rams

Jared Goff, QB, California: The Rams sold the farm to get their quarterback. The only question remaining: who is their quarterback? Goff is the best passer in this class and he makes the most sense with this pick.

2. Cleveland Browns

Carson Wentz , QB, North Dakota State: There is a high probability that Wentz is drafted with this pick, the main question is to who? Cleveland could pull the trigger, but there might be an even better chance of the Eagles or another team trading up for his rights.

3. San Diego Chargers

Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss: With Tunsil available, the Chargers have a choice to either help stabilize their offensive line or go after a stud on defense. With Philip Rivers in the final years of his career, San Diego needs to protect him at all costs.

4. Dallas Cowboys

Jalen Ramsey, CB-S, Florida State: The Cowboys will likely go defense with this pick, but do they go with the pass rusher (Bosa) or defensive back (Ramsey)? I'll guess they address the secondary, adding Ramsey at cornerback and moving last year's first round pick Byron Jones to safety full-time.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars

Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State: The Jaguars were big spenders in free agency, adding Malik Jackson and Tashaun Gipson to the defense. Factor in last year's first rounder Dante Fowler and add another impact pass rusher like Bosa and the Jaguars have the makings of a defense no offense wants to face.

6. Baltimore Ravens

DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon: Defensive line isn't a glaring need on the Ravens' roster, but with Buckner still available, Baltimore might not be able to pass on the talented defensive end.

7. San Francisco 49ers

Myles Jack, LB, UCLA: There are several teams who will not consider Jack in the first round due to his knee injury, but there are also teams who see the linebacker as worth the risk. And San Francisco might be one of those teams.

8. Philadelphia Eagles

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State: With Demarco Murray now in Tennessee, the Eagles are looking for a new identity at running back. Elliott has the talent to be the featured piece of Doug Pederson's offense.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida: Tampa needs to address the cornerback position this draft and Hargreaves is a tough-minded, instinctive cover man who is ready to start from day one in the NFL.

10. New York Giants

Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame: With Will Beatty no longer on the roster and last year's first-round pick Ereck Flowers struggling on the left side, Stanley would make sense as a plug-and-play left tackle from Day One.

11. Chicago Bears

Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia: Entering year two of the transition to a 3-4 base scheme, the Bears are still searching for an impact edge rusher. Floyd has plenty of question marks, but his flexibility and pass rush potential for an athlete his size will have him overdrafted, possibly this early.

12. New Orleans Saints

Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville: New Orleans has some solid pieces on the defensive line, but need to continue and add depth. Rankins isn't only depth, but he has difference-maker potential, also adding versatility to play multiple spots for the Saints' front.

13. Miami Dolphins

Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State: The Dolphins are looking to add speed on defense, especially at the linebacker level. Lee certainly offers range, and is an ascending player with high upside.

14. Oakland Raiders

William Jackson, CB, Houston: David Amerson showed signs of recharging his career in Oakland last season, but he is in the final year of his deal and Jackson would give the Raiders immediate depth and a long-term starter.

15. Tennessee Titans

Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State: With the Titans moving back to No. 15, the goal of protecting Marcus Mariota should still be a top priority. Conklin would make sense as a player who can play right tackle from day one, but also add versatility inside at guard, keeping Taylor Lewan at left tackle.

16. Detroit Lions

Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State: Detroit has drafted a first round offensive lineman two of the past four years, but right tackle is still a trouble area. Decker can struggle with some speed rushers, but his balance to sink and neutralize power or quickness fits what the Lions need on the right side.

17. Atlanta Falcons

Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson: There is no such thing as too much pass rush and after drafting a Clemson pass rusher in the first round last year (Vic Beasley), it wouldn't be a surprise if they added Lawson, who flourished in Beasley's old spot for the Tigers.

18. Indianapolis Colts

Noah Spence, DE/OLB, Eastern Kentucky: The Colts need to address their mediocre pass rush and as long as they are comfortable with his character, Spence would be terrific value at this pick.

19. Buffalo Bills

A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama: With Kyle Williams coming off meniscus surgery and about to turn 33 years old, the Bills need to find his successor. Along with Marcel Dareus, Robinson would give Buffalo an all-Alabama defensive interior.

20. New York Jets

Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis: If Lynch is still available at this point in the first round, pick No. 20 could be the sweet spot for a trade … unless the Jets, who brought the Memphis quarterback in for a visit, see the future of the franchise with Lynch.

21. Washington Redskins

Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama: While there are questions about his ability to hold up in coverage, Ragland is an impact run defender who adds a physical presence to the middle of the Redskins defense.

22. Houston Texans

Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame: With a strong-armed quarterback like Brock Osweiler now leading the offense, the Texans needs to find horses that can help stretch the field. Fuller is at his best on vertical routes with the tracking skills and downfield speed to make plays.

23. Minnesota Vikings

Laquon Treadwell, WR, Mississippi: The Vikings landed Teddy Bridgewater in the late first round two years ago and Christmas arrives in April once again this year for Minnesota. Treadwell is the top wide receiver in this class and gives Bridgewater a powerful possession target on the outside.

24. Cincinnati Bengals

Josh Doctson, WR, TCU: With Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu leaving via free agency, wide receiver is a realistic option for the Bengals with this pick. Doctson has the size, speed and ball-skills that will complement A.J. Green and give Andy Dalton another downfield threat.

25. Pittsburgh Steelers

Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor: With Steve McLendon leaving via free agency, Pittsburgh needs to address the nose tackle position at some point in the draft and Billings might be too appealing to pass up for Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert.

26. Seattle Seahawks

Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana: With Russell Okung leaving for Denver, the Seahawks need fresh blood at offensive tackle. Spriggs has core strength issues, but his frame and athleticism will be extremely appealing for teams with needs on the offensive line.

27. Green Bay Packers

Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama: With B.J. Raji taking a hiatus this season, Reed is a plug-and-play nose tackle who offers versatility on the Packers defensive line.

28. Kansas City Chiefs

Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State: With Sean Smith signing with the Raiders, the Chiefs will be open to drafting a cornerback in the early rounds. Apple has the size, length and speed combination that the Chiefs covet at the position.

29. Arizona Cardinals

Keanu Neal, SS, Florida: The Cardinals have some questions in the secondary, including at safety. Neal is a known as a physical thumper, but he also has the required athleticism to develop in pass coverage.

30. Carolina Panthers

Germain Ifedi, OT, Texas A&M: The Panthers' offensive tackles out-performed expectations last season, but the team needs depth and youth at the position. Ifedi also has experience at guard, providing versatility to kick inside if needed.

31. Denver Broncos

Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State: The Broncos are almost out of options to address their need at quarterback, which might force their hand with this pick. Cook has NFL starting traits, which might be enough for John Elway to pull the trigger here.
Carson Wentz remains at No. 2, but to which team? (USATSI)

Round 2

32. Cleveland Browns

Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor: Cleveland has its quarterback and now they need to get him playmakers like Coleman.

33. Tennessee Titans

Kenny Clark, DT, UCLA: The Titans hope to build depth on the defensive line and have shown a lot of interest in Clark.

34. Dallas Cowboys

Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson: Dodd put himself on the NFL radar with a superb 2015 season and would help Dallas' pass rush.

35. San Diego Chargers

Ryan Kelly, OC, Alabama: A glaring hole on the roster, Kelly would be a day one starter capable to opening run lanes inside.

36. Baltimore Ravens

Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson: With zero career interceptions, Alexander could slip out of the first round…and right to the Ravens.

37. San Francisco 49ers

Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State: While not easy to replace Anquan Boldin, Thomas has the size, ball skills and routes to thrive in the NFL.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars

Artie Burns, CB, Miami (Fla.): The Jags have a crowded cornerback depth chart, but no studs. Burns has that type of potential.

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss: The red flags drop him to this point, but Nkemdiche will help the Bucs' defensive line immediately.

40. New York Giants

Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia: The Giants are one of the several teams who have spent considerable time with the talented safety.

41. Chicago Bears

Jonathan Bullard, DL, Florida: The Bears continue to build the front seven and Bullard is a versatile lineman to add to the rotation.

42. Miami Dolphins

Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State: Cameron Wake and Mario Williams are the now; Ogbah could be the future at defensive end in Miami.

43. Tennessee Titans

Vonn Bell, S, Ohio State: The Titans need an upgrade at safety and you can pencil in Bell to Tennessee if he's still on the board.

44. Oakland Raiders

Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama: Oakland wants more from the running back position and Henry can provide that backfield boost.

45. Tennessee Titans

Kamalei Correa, DE/OLB, Boise State: Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo are both signed long-term, but Correa will push them for playing time.

46. Detroit Lions

Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech: The Lions have done a lot of work on Butler as they continue to get younger on the defensive line.

47. New Orleans Saints

Xavien Howard, CB, Baylor: With Keenan Lewis' injuries, the Saints could use more cornerback insurance with a player like Howard.

48. Indianapolis Colts

Cody Whitehair, OG/OC, Kansas State: Whitehair would be a plug-and-play guard for Indianapolis and could serve as the back-up at center.

49. Buffalo Bills

Cardale Jones, QB, Ohio State: Buffalo is looking for a young quarterback to groom and Jones has all the desired physical traits.

50. Atlanta Falcons

Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas: Although he doesn't offer much as a blocker, Henry is a reliable pass-catcher in the Owen Daniels mold.

51. New York Jets

Le'Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech: The Jets added Ryan Clady, but his injury history will keep offensive tackle on the team's list of needs.

52. Houston Texans

Nick Martin, OG/OC, Notre Dame: Houston has a need at center and Martin's versatility to also play guard will be appealing to the Texans.

53. Washington Redskins

Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech: Due to his injury, the Redskins are able to snag Fuller at discount as long as his knee checks out fine.

54. Minnesota Vikings

Josh Garnett, OG, Stanford: Minnesota brought in Alex Boone to address their need at guard, but more depth is needed.

55. Cincinnati Bengals

Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State: Domata Peko's best days are behind him, Johnson gives the Bengals a long-term option inside.

56. Seattle Seahawks

Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State: Seattle is looking to get younger on the defensive line and Jones flashes first round talent at times.

57. Green Bay Packers

Kentrell Brothers, LB, Missouri: Brothers might not have ideal athleticism, but his instincts more than make up for his lack of speed.

58. Pittsburgh Steelers

T.J. Green, DB, Clemson: A former wide receiver, Green lined up at safety, but his size/speed combo might push him to corner.

59. Kansas City Chiefs

Caleb Benenoch, OG, UCLA: The Chiefs need to add guard depth through the draft and Benenoch has intriguing athleticism.

60. New England Patriots

Sean Davis, DB, Maryland: The Patriots have shown a great deal of interest in Davis who provides corner/safety versatility.

61. New England Patriots

Bronson Kaufusi, DE, BYU: Kaufusi was moved around in BYU's hybrid front-seven and offers flexibility for the Patriots.

62. Carolina Panthers

Sterling Shepard, WR, Oklahoma: Wide receiver isn't the top need for the Panthers, but they can't hide their interest in Shepard.

63. Denver Broncos

Su'a Cravens, LB, USC: Despite some tweener traits and unimpressive testing numbers, Cravens is a smart, reliable player.

Round 3

64. Tennessee Titans

Will Redmond, CB, Mississippi State: By year two, Redmond will be an upgrade over bothPerrish Cox and Brice McCain at cornerback.

65. Cleveland Browns

Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB, Michigan State: Lack of pass rush has consistently been an issue for the Browns, something Calhoun will help fix.

66. San Diego Chargers

Darian Thompson, S, Boise State: With Eric Weddle in Baltimore, San Diego needs to add depth at safety and develop a future starter.

67. Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State: The Cowboys are hoping to upgrade the quarterback depth chart in the draft and Prescott will do that.

68. San Francisco 49ers

Jalen Mills, DB, LSU: San Francisco needs to add another cornerback through the draft and Mills has versatile experience.

69. Jacksonville Jaguars

Max Tuerk, OC, USC: The Jaguars need to address the hole at center and Tuerk has NFL size and athleticism.

70. Baltimore Ravens

Joe Dahl, OL, Washington State: Baltimore needs to rebuild the offensive line depth and Dahl can help replace Kelechi Osemele.

71. New York Giants

Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech: The Giants could use another horse in the stable at running back and Dixon is an excellent value.

72. Chicago Bears

Justin Simmons, S, Boston College: A rangy, ball-hawking safety, Simmons has the talent to push for starting reps as a rookie in 2016.

73. Miami Dolphins

C.J. Prosise, RB, Notre Dame: With Lamar Miller now in Houston, the Dolphins need another back and Prosise fits Miami's scheme.

74. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Roberto Aguayo, PK, Florida State: A native of central Florida, Aguayo would provide an instant upgrade at kicker for the Bucs.

75. Oakland Raiders

Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina State: Oakland has developed a solid defensive line rotation, but need an impact presence on the interior.

76. Tennessee Titans

Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State: Tennessee is a good landing spot for Miller because he won't be expected to fill a starting role early.

77. Philadelphia Eagles

Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State: If Philadelphia misses on a quarterback in the first round, Hackenberg is a possible option top-100.

78. New Orleans Saints

Deion Jones, LB, LSU: A New Orleans native, the Saints keep Jones at home and add him to the mix at weakside linebacker.

79. Philadelphia Eagles

Shon Coleman, OT, Auburn: Although still raw, Coleman has talent worth developing and could be the Eagles' future left tackle.

80. Buffalo Bills

Kyler Fackrell, LB, Utah State: With his experience rushing the passer and dropping in space, Fackrell is an ideal fit in the Bills' scheme.

81. Atlanta Falcons

Tyler Boyd, WR, Pittsburgh: Justin Hardy is penciled in as the Falcons' slot receiver, but Boyd will push for immediate playing time.

82. Indianapolis Colts

Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona: Wright has limited athletic traits, but his instincts help mask those flaws, fitting best as a 3-4 MIKE.

83. New York Jets

Ryan Smith, CB, North Carolina Central: Smith is flying under the radar, but the Jets have shown interest in the “small school” cornerback.

84. Washington Redskins

Alex Collins, RB, Arkansas: With Alfred Morris now in Dallas, the Redskins need to add another back to pair with Matt Jones.

85. Houston Texans

Jeremy Cash, S, Duke: Cash is a reliable run defender who does his best work in the box, which is what Houston needs.

86. Minnesota Vikings

Sheldon Day, DT, Notre Dame: Defensive tackle isn't a glaring need, but Day fits what Mike Zimmer wants as part of his rotation.

87. Cincinnati Bengals

Carl Nassib, DE, Penn State: Fitting the mold of what Cincinnati seeks at the position, Nassib brings juice to the Bengals edge.

88. Green Bay Packers

Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina: While Jared Cook is the short-term answer, Adams gives Green Bay a flex tight end to groom.

89. Pittsburgh Steelers

Christian Westerman, OG, Arizona State: Pro Bowler David DeCastro is entering a contract year and Westerman could be the long-term answer.

90. Seattle Seahawks

Isaac Seumalo, OC, Oregon State: Seattle needs to find a starting center in this draft and Seumalo has the talent to win the job in 2016.

91. New England Patriots

Hassan Ridgeway, DT, Texas: The Patriots will draft defensive tackle depth in the draft and Ridgeway is tremendous value here.

92. Arizona Cardinals

Adolphus Washington, DT, Ohio State: Washington moves very well for a 300-plus pounder and fits the Arizona's defensive front.

93. Carolina Panthers

Jordan Jenkins, DE, Georgia: Charles Johnson is back for Carolina, but he is playing on a one year deal and Jenkins can be the future.

94. Denver Broncos

Devontae Booker, RB, Utah: As long as the knee is healthy, Booker would provide a formidable backfield duo with C.J. Anderson.

95. Detroit Lions

Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina: The Lions understand what a talent like Randall Cobb can add to an offense – Cooper is in that mold.

96. New England Patriots

Austin Hooper, TE, Stanford: With Martellus Bennett a free agent after 2016, Hooper can serve as his understudy as a rookie.

97. Seattle Seahawks

Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU: Despite his accountability issues, Robinson has the physical ingredients that Seattle seeks at corner.

98. Denver Broncos

Jihad Ward, DL, Illinois: Ward is a gifted athlete who is still figuring things out, but could be Denver's next Malik Jackson.

2016 NFL Mock Draft According to Fox Sports
Peter Schrager


1. Los Angeles (7-9): Jared Goff, QB, Cal, Jr.
The read I get is that the Rams are leaning towards Goff, the talented 215-pounder out of Cal. That doesn't mean the winds of change in Los Angeles can't lead to a late push for Carson Wentz. It's either/or at the moment. Goff gets the slot for now. Stay tuned.
2. Cleveland (3-13): Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State, Sr.
A wild-card team with gaping holes all over the roster and a new philosophy and front office, the Browns could do anything at all on draft night and I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised. As I wrote on extensively last week, I believe the Browns could trade down and trade out of this slot in the coming days, and on draft day I believe they will receive a handful of offers. I also think they could go with Laremy Tunsil or Jalen Ramsey, the top offensive and defensive players on most teams' boards. But I've got them going with Wentz.
3. San Diego (4-12): Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State, Jr.
And we start with the big surprise at three. Bosa's all ball, and any question marks off the field will be addressed by whatever team takes him. I believe San Diego likes Bosa more than Jaley Ramsey and DeForest Buckner -- my pick for them in the previous mock draft -- at the moment.
4. Dallas (4-12): Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State, Jr.
Yep. This is where it gets really fun. Tunsil and Jack and Ramsey all on the board, and the Cowboys go with Elliott. Jerry and Stephen Jones are not messing around. They believe they're a few players away from Super Bowl contention. Elliott could be the workhorse DeMarco Murray was ... and more.
5. Jacksonville (5-11): Jalen Ramsey, DB, Florida State, Jr.
Gus Bradley's already added Malik Jackson, Prince Amukamara, and Tashaun Gipson, and gets Dante Fowler back to his defense this year. Ramsey is the top player on many teams' boards this year. The Jags rebuild their defense in one offseason.
6. Baltimore (5-11): Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss, Jr.
€”Tunsil's got all the goods, but could trickle down in the draft because of other teams' needs. The Ravens take the top offensive tackle. Joe Flacco gets a good one.
7. San Francisco (5-11): DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon, Sr.
If the 49ers can't get one of the top two quarterbacks, I'd circle Buckner as a logical choice. The mere thought of Buckner and fellow Oregon Duck Arik Armstead lining up alongside each other on the defensive line could strike fear across the NFC West. Buckner's got the biggest hands in the draft and is as good a kid as he is a performer. All business. How Chip Kelly -- €”who recruited him way back when -- likes his players.
8. Philadelphia (7-9): Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame, Jr.
Stanley, the rare senior in this draft class, is 6-foot-5, 315 pounds, and will graduate with a degree in business and entrepreneurship from Notre Dame in May. He's all business. Lane Johnson was locked up long-term this offseason but Jason Peters isn't getting any younger. If the Eagles miss out on both quarterbacks and Elliott, Stanley could be the guy.
9. Tampa Bay (6-10): Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida, Jr.
The Buccaneers have revamped their roster through free agency. It's hard not liking the additions of veterans Brent Grimes and Robert Ayers on defense and coming to terms with Doug Martin so he's back in Tampa Bay. Adding Hargreaves, the No. 2 defensive back in this draft, as the crown jewel of the defensive backfield would make a whole lot of sense. A local kid, Hargreaves was one of the few bright spots at Florida during his time there.
10. New York Giants (6-10): Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia, Jr.
€”I keep hearing that the Giants' front office and coaching staff has a place in their hearts for Floyd. For all the additions the Giants made on defense, they still need an outside linebacker who can come off the edge.
11. Chicago (6-10): Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson, Jr.
The Bears need a whole lot of everything on the defensive side of the ball. Lawson could go anywhere from No. 7 to San Francisco to No. 19 to the Bills. John Fox's D can use a real edge rusher. Lawson's the guy.
12. New Orleans (7-9): Noah Spence, OLB, Eastern Kentucky, Jr.
€”The Saints have a need on defense in multiple areas and think Hargreaves could be the guy considering their porous pass defense in recent years. But with him off my board here, I like Spence, the electric outside rusher out of Eastern Kentucky, to end up with Sean Payton and Dennis Allen. Spence was once a hot recruit for Urban Meyer. He's answered the questions off the field. I believe his name is going to be called a lot earlier than many expect.
13. Miami (6-10): Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State, Soph.
The Dolphins would love to get their hands on Ezekiel Elliott, but if he's not available and Apple -- €”the 6-foot-1 press corner -- is there, this could be the guy. But I repeat: Don't be shocked if the Dolphins try to trade up for Elliott.
14. Oakland (7-9): Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson, Jr.
Oakland could very well trade back here. Keep an eye on that happening if they don't love a player. Dodd's 24 years old and kind of just burst on to the scene in 2015. But he was darn good and played his best in the biggest games. Teams are all over the board on where he'll end up going, but I like Oakland to get the best pass rusher on their board. With Aldon Smith still suspended until at least November, Dodd could be the pass rusher opposite Khalil Mack on Ken Norton's D.
15. Tennessee (3-13): Myles Jack, LB, UCLA, Jr.
I've spoken to many teams and there's no consensus on where Jack goes (or drops) in this NFL Draft. Teams need to be willing to absorb a potential risk with a meniscus that's not 100 percent. I'm looking at the first 14 teams in this draft class and I just can't find one without a major need elsewhere. Jack could still be the best player in this draft. Jon Robinson, with his six picks in the first 76 selections, would be the perfect GM to grab the former UCLA star. 
16. Detroit (7-9): Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville, Sr.
The Lions are under new stewardship with former Patriots staffer Bob Quinn in the saddle. New England was always big on the best player on their board, especially if he roamed the defensive line. Rankins was the top defensive player at Senior Bowl practices this year and can start right on Day One for the Lions up front.
17. Atlanta (8-8): Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama, Sr.
€”A nifty interior lineman who starred under Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa, Reed is the type of defensive tackle who could immediately make Dan Quinn's defense a better unit. Reed recorded 111 tackles and can establish the run defense Atlanta so sorely needs.
18. Indianapolis (8-8): Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State, Jr.
€”Big, sturdy OT who can play -- €”and protect -- €”right from the get-go. Conklin could go top 10. I think Indy would be pleased to see him here.
19. Buffalo (8-8): €”Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State, Soph.
Lee can do it all, and in a world of undersized linebackers finding their place -- and more -- on an NFL defense, he could fit the prototype. Talented kid from a great program who'd help the Bills right away.
20. New York Jets (10-6): Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis, Jr.
€”He's 6-foot-7, can move, and he can sling it. The Jets could move up to get the quarterback the Rams don't take at No. 1. If Lynch is sitting here at 20 and Ryan Fitzpatrick's still playing hardball, why not?
21. Washington (9-7): €”William Jackson III, CB, Houston, Sr.
Washington needs some defensive backfield help, either at safety or corner. Jackson III is a burner and should be taken in the first round.
22. Houston (9-7): Josh Doctson, WR, TCU, Sr.
€”I've got Doctson as the top wide receiver on my board. He can be the perfect complement to DeAndre Hopkins in the Houston offense and will be a highlight-reel regular on Sundays for years to come.

23. Minnesota (11-5): Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame, Jr.
€”Fuller's name has been rising on a lot of draft boards and the mock drafts are finally starting to catch up. A burner, yes, but Fuller can contribute in a variety of ways underneath and in the special teams game too. Stephon Diggs was a revelation last year. Fuller could be one too.
24. Cincinnati (12-4): Kamalei Correa, OLB, Boise State, Jr.
€”Correa could go as high as the top 15. The Bengals can sit back and watch how this draft plays out, but I could see them snagging the high-energy pass rusher out of Boise State if he drops to 24.
25. Pittsburgh (10-6): Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State, Sr.
€”Decker's likely going to go earlier in the first round, but I could see him taking a bit of a tumble if the pass rushers go early as they do here. Defensive back may take priority, but offensive line's a need in Pittsburgh, too.
26. Seattle (10-6): Ryan Kelly, C/G, Alabama, Sr.
€”Kelly's nasty. Nick Saban speaks as highly about the young man as any offensive line prospect in recent years. If you watch Seattle struggle with the Panthers in the playoffs, it's no secret that offensive line is an area of need. The unit wasn't the same without Max Unger. Here's a strong, smart addition.
27. Green Bay (10-6): Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor, Jr.
€”With BJ Raji on his way out, Billings could be a natural fit. He's the co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a clog in the middle. Billings can play nose tackle at the next level and be a force inside for Green Bay.
28. Kansas City (11-5): Emmanuel Ogbah, DE/OLB, Oklahoma State, Jr.
€”Another pass rusher off the board. Ogbah had 11 sacks as a sophomore because of his freakish athleticism. He then doubled down and had 13 sacks in 2015, even though he was a focus of opposing offenses' blocking schemes. Needs work but fits in this defense.
29. Arizona (13-3): Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss, Jr.
Nkemdiche was invited to the draft and I expect him to go in the first round. The off-the-field concerns are real question marks for teams, but he won't be the first defensive lineman in NFL history with a troubled past. Is there any coach better for this kid than Bruce Arians? His line, so many times before, is "I'll coach him up, baby." Arians can make it work. 
30. Carolina (15-1): LaQuon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss, Jr.
€”Treadwell's not the top wide receiver on my board, but he, of course, can be a star at the next level. His 4.65 40-yard-dash may hurt him, but he's a tough wideout who'll have a chip on his shoulder if and when he slips this far. Is there a better collection of guys -- €”Cam Newton, Josh Norman, Kawaan Short -- ”who use that as fuel?
31. Denver (12-4): Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State, Sr.
Cook slips to 31 and the Broncos take him. Until they have another veteran quarterback on the roster, I can't see them taking any other position in the first round.
