2016 NFL Draft - Head Scratchers

Every NFL Draft their are picks and decisions that make you question the sanity of decision makers around the NFL. This year was no exception as many teams had moments that left me and most other folks scratching their heads. I will share with you a few of my personal favorites from the 2016 NFL Draft.


1. Two teams trading a ton of picks to move up to 1st/2nd in the draft

I have never loved surrendering multiple picks in NFL Drafts unless you are trading up to draft a legitimate cannot miss, stud prospect of the highest caliber. Both the Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles surrendered tons of potential NFL starters to move up to the top of the draft and pick up two young, talented but not guaranteed to be legitimate star quarterbacks. I can see the Los Angeles Rams move more as their quarterback situation was shaky and moving to Los Angeles, a star quarterback to be the focal point of their new marketing campaign made sense. It was for that reason I knew as well that Jared Goff would be their pick. However I do not understand the Eagles move here. They already have former 1st round pick Sam Bradford at quarterback who got stronger as the year went on last year and there is plenty of other holes on the roster that needed addressing. Sure Carson Wentz has the tools to be a great quarterback but he played at a small school and only time will tell if he can make the jump. For all the Eagles surrendered to move up and get him, Wentz better become the next Aaron Rodgers instead of Ryan Leaf. There have been so many 1st round quarterback flops over the years. The list includes Ryan Leaf, Heath Shuler, David Carr, Akili Smith and Jamarcus Russell.


2. Stud OT Laremy Tunsil falling to the 13th pick

It wasn't him falling that was really head scratching but rather the video of Tunsil puffing on a bong and the free fall from a potential top-3 pick all the way down to the Miami Dolphins at #13. The story broke before the draft about the video and was the top story heading into the draft on Thursday. Tunsil admitted it was footage of him from years ago and completely owned the story and he said all the right things. However two other less talented offensive tackles went off the board before his name was called. Tunsil is a talented, athletic kid with huge upside and this will probably push him towards great things at the NFL level. That is as long as the bong footage is indeed a memory and not a lifestyle.


3. SF 49ers trading up for a guard.

The next head scratcher of the NFL Draft was the San Francisco 49ers trading up into the latter stages of round one to pick up guard Joshua Garnett of Stanford whom I had labeled as an early third round pick. You better be picking up a future beast at offensive guard if you are going to trades picks away to move up and get him and Garnett is simply good, not great. I literally said "WTF" outloud when they announced the trade and then the player the 49ers had moved up to draft. Definitely a head scratching moment.


4. LB Myles Jack falling all the way down to the 37th pick and the Jaguars.

Yes Jack has some knee concerns without question but this kid is a top five talent with an amazing blend of athletics, heart, quickness and tackling prowess. He is the kind of player who arrives at the NFL level and dominates and I believe he has Rookie of the year potential as a linebacker. I was very shocked up fell out of the first round and more shocked that the Jaguars, already blessed with last year's first round pick Dante Fowler and terrific first round pick, shut down corner Jalen Ramsey got another possible superstar in Jack.


5. The NFL forgetting the importance of a stud middle linebacker

I was not surprised that Reggie Ragland of Alabama fell to the 2nd round. I am surprised however the NFL executives have undervalued the worth of a three-down tenacious, hard nosed leader in the middle of a defense. Ray Lewis was the unquestioned leader of a Ravens tenacious defense for a long time and thanks to leaving him on the board until the 42nd pick, the Buffalo Bills will reap the benefits of this mishap. In my opinion, Ragland is a top-ten player on this draft board and a future star.


6. QB Christian Hackenberg in the second round by the Jets

I fully admit that the Jets could have seen something in Hackenberg to make him an intruiging pro and a potential starter for the team. I do not get to break down and analyse the interviews and individual workouts of these players but Hackenberg in the 2nd round? Really? I have a hard time that he would not have been on the board later in the draft as he really struggled with his accuracy in college and if you struggle at that level to get passes to the receivers, good luck with the huge jump in talent at the NFL level. I absolutely know I can be proven wrong here but even so the 2nd round grade on him is bizaare. It's like taking Robert Griffin III in the second round of fantasy drafts because he has really good potential. I just don't get it.


7. CB James Bradberry in the 2nd round

I have never seen the Samford cornerback play football but a second round selection to grab him? Really? On most boards I saw he was a 5th or 6th round flyer. He has size and talent but really? He was the top player available on your board Panthers? I find that hard to believe.


8. Dolphins give up three picks to move up and take WR Carroo

I am all for trading up and picking the players you love in the NFL Draft but is receiver really such a need pick for the Dolphins that they give up a 6th round pick this year and a 3rd/4th round pick next year to get him. With Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills already on roster, I was very surprised they gave up that much to get him. I do however love the influx of talent on the offensive side of the ball and do see that this pick may make them strong on offense this season if Carroo works out.


9. The Browns take WHAT quarterback?

I wasn't surprised to see the Browns target a quarterback but I was very surprised that their quarterback of choice was Cody Kessler, a player I see as a good collegiate quarterback without much NFL upside. I liked watching Kessler with USC and I actually hope I am wrong but I just don't see the size, ability and vision combination that today's NFL quarterback needs to thrive. I am not routing for him to fail, I just think it is unlikely he is ever a starting quarterback at the NFL level.


10. Last but not least of my head scratchers... a Kicker?

Yes I know Roberto Aguayo of Florida State is potenially a great pro kicker but I'm sorry, there are so many capable kickers that get plugged in as a starter through free agency in the NFL each year that wasting a 2nd round pick of a kicker may be the biggest head scratcher of them all. Are the Buccaneers really just one kicker away from their next Super Bowl ring? There is no way to justify a second round pick on a kicker when I can point out 15 strong free agent kickers around the NFL.


Hope you enjoyed my top head scratchers of the NFL Draft this season.
