2016 NFL Draft First Round Picks

1.01 - Los Angeles Rams: QB Jared Goff, California

The Rams secured their face of their franchise for next fifteen years or so hopefully with the selection of Jared Goff of California. The club paid a steep price to move up in the draft to target a quarterback but having the California signal caller under center in Los Angeles will be the first signature move of the Rams franchise moving back home after twenty-one years in St. Louis. Goff has tremendous size, a live arm and a no-fear approach to playing the position. There is a swagger about him on the field and while he does make mistakes and his accuracy is not always top notch, he will battle to make a difference on the field. He moves very well around the pocket. Good pick here to begin the draft.

"It was well worth the wait. It was an unbelievable moment. A once in the lifetime experience...I feel very comfortable with their (the Rams) whole staff.." Jared Goff


1.02 - Philadelphia Eagles: QB Carson Wentz, North Dakota State

The Eagles take the other top quarterback prospect here and the North Dakota State signal caller will get to learn under the guidance of Quarterback Whisperer Doug Peterson. Philadelphia gets a quarterback who resembles Ben Roethlisberger and Joe Flacco in both stature, ability and collegiate competition. He has a lot to prove having missed out on top collegiate defenses but he has all the tools of a great NFL quarterback and he makes intelligent decisions on the field. At 6'5 and 237 pounds, he is the prototype modern day NFL quarterback. He can make plays with both his legs and his arm. In fact he was second on his championship team in rushing. The Eagles paid a handsome fee to move up to the number two position in the NFL Draft but they ultimately got their pick and have locked in their starting quarterback for a long time to come. Other quarterbacks from division 1-AA who were drafted in the first round include Phil Simms, Ken O'Brien, Steve McNair and Joe Flacco.


1.03 - San Diego Chargers: DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State

The San Diego Chargers surprised a little with the pick of Joey Bosa, defensive end from Ohio State. He has natural pass rushing abilities and his motor never quits. Many of his attributes have been compared to J.J. Watt and only his subpar 4.85 forty time made pundits question his possible future in the NFL. He is a football player who has the attitude, effort and tenacity to dominate football games and he will give the Chargers a legitimate pass rushing specialist who can line up all over the defensive line. I love this pick for the Chargers and he will immediately have an impact at the pro level. Good pick!


1.04 - Dallas Cowboys: RB Ezekiel Elliot, Ohio State

The Dallas Cowboys were rumored to be going after Elliot heading into the NFL Draft and it wasn't a smoke screen as they made the talented running back the 4th pick of the draft. Elliot is a tough, physical running back who can get the hard yards as well as burst for a 70-yard touchdown scamper. He is a character guy, shifty, powerful and will give you everything he has on every play. He is also a very good blocker which will help keep quarterback Tony Romo healthy. I love this player and I believe he has a real chance to be the top player in this draft when you look back at it in five years. He is that good and he makes an already good Cowboys offense, absolutely terrifying.

"This is definitely a surreal moment...hopefully I can do the same thing in Dallas, hope up that championship trophy...I go out there and I play for my brothers. If they have the ball in their hands I will be working too." Ezekiel Elliot.


1.05 - Jacksonville Jaguars: CB Jalen Ramsey, Florida State

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense will be significantly stronger this season with the return of Dante Fowler (last year's top draft pick who missed his rookie season) and the selection of talented cornerback Jalen Ramsey of Florida State who has an elite skill set. Ramsey has said he is the best defensive player in the draft and he has the tools to back up that swagger. He has safety size who is an exceptional leaper, attacks the running back hard, can play press coverage immediately at the next level and can play either corner or safety. He is a big, nasty defensive back who is going to step in and have a real role right away with the Jaguars. Excellent pick.


1.06 Baltimore Ravens: OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame

The Ravens ignored needs on the defensive side of the ball to pick up an offensive tackle. Stanley was not supposed to be the first tackle off the board but there is a lot to like about Stanley. He has great size and he is a very good pass protector. He has good hands and feet and will help to keep Joe Flacco healthy. He needs to be more tenacious as a run blocker and improve his aggressiveness but he is a player that should have a long, successful NFL career. This is also a need pick for the Ravens due to mediocre play at offensive tackle over last couple of seasons.


1.07 San Francisco 49ers: DE DeForest Buckner, Oregon

One year after taking Oregon pass rush specialist DE Arik Armstead, the 49ers added his collegiate teammate DE DeForest Buckner who is another tall, athletic defensive end. He has a good motor and makes plays in the backfield. He is quick, elusive and makes lots of plays in the backfield. He needs to improve his pad level to be effective against NFL offensive tackles but at 6'7 and 291 pounds, he has the athletic tools to give offenses fits. He needs to get stronger at the point of attack to be a solid 3-down defensive player. He has potential to be very good but he does have some areas to improve to thrive at the next level.


1.08 Tennessee Titans (traded with Cleveland Browns): OT Jack Conklin, Michigan State

The Titans moved up in the draft to pick up offensive tackle Jack Conklin of Michigan State. He has perfect offensive tackle size, he is a great athlete with long arms and he is a physical, nasty, effort player who will give you everything he has on every play. He moves well and loves the physicality of football. The Titans were in desperate need of improved offensive line play and Conklin is a good pick. Interesting to see how far Laremy Tunsil will fall who was considered the best offensive linemen in the draft.


1.09 Chicago Bears: OLB Leonard Floyd, Georgia

The Bears traded up into this pick to pick up the tall, athletic outside linebacker. Floyd is a pass rushing specialist who knows how to get after the quarterback. He has elite first-step quickness and nice elusiveness but he must get stronger and heavier to succeed at the next level. For a pass rushing specialist, only 4 1/2 sacks this season is a huge red flag and I believe he is a risky pick this high in the draft.


1.10 New York Giants: CB Eli Apple, Ohio State

The Giants reached a little here with the selection of cornerback Eli Apple of Ohio State. That isn't the say Apple doesn't have pro potential. He does but this is definitely higher than this player should be going. He has great size though at 6'1 and good speed at 4.4 speed but he must improve his techniques and consistency to be an everydown corner at the next level. He will need good coaching to be a good starter but the athleticism is there.


1.11 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB Vernon Hargreaves III, Florida

The Buccaneers found themselves a real player here with the 11th pick in the NFL Draft. Vernon Hargreaves is a gamer. He works hard, does all the little things well and is going to have an outstanding professional career. He is a real quick twitch corner with exceptional quickness. He has exceptional instincts when the ball is in the air as his 38 pass deflections and 10 interceptions illustrate. Great pick by the Buccaneers.


1.12 New Orleans Saints: DE Sheldon Rankins, Louisville

The Saints drafted Sheldon Rankins, defensive end from Louisville. A 300-pound, intelligent player with good leverage and power, he often will make plays in the backfield. He has a real edge in his game and gives it everything he has on every play. He is equally effectively against the run and the pass and he should get immediate playing time with the Saints. Good pick.


1.13 Miami Dolphins: OT Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss

The slide has ended for Laremy Tunsil as the Miami Dolphins happily scooped up the talented offensive tackle. He was the top player on many experts lists this year and he has all the tools to dominate his peers at the next level. He slid in the draft due to some off-field questions but there is no questioning his talent and ability. He has tremendous feet, balance and a good punch. He moves really well in space and has quick feet. He has had some durability issues in college but those seem to be fluke occurrences. The Dolphins offensive line already had some good pieces in place and adding a player like Tunsil could help to put them over the top. Good pick if the off-field issues prove to be a non-issue.

"I'm blessed just to be here.... I am going to show everyone what I am about...I'm blessed just to be a part of the Dolphins organization" Laremy Tunsil


1.14 Oakland Raiders: DB / S Karl Joseph, West Virginia

Karl Joseph is a powerful, aggressive defensive back from West Virginia that loves to crush running backs and receivers whenever he can. He has the athleticism to play at cornerback and the toughness to play safety. He reads the play well and will make the Raiders defense better right away. Excellent pick here and he has been compared to Bob Sanders who dominated for the Colts last decade.


1.15 Cleveland Browns: WR Corey Coleman, Baylor

The Browns moved down twice in the draft and got a ton of picks. Then with their first pick they picked up ultra-fast Corey Coleman from Baylor who can flat out fly. He is terrific with the ball in his hands and he is very explosive. However his route running needs plenty of work as Baylor does not run precise routes and it may take him awhile to learn the pro game. This is a huge need area for the Browns and Coleman is an elite athlete. I think in a few years this will be a very good pick for the Browns but it may take him awhile to find his legs at the next level.


1.16 Detroit Lions: OT Taylor Decker, Ohio State

The Lions have a huge need along the offensive line and they picked up Taylor Decker from Ohio State to help improve that unit. He has a mean streak, an excellent work ethic and those two things help overcome his average athleticism. He is a good run blocker and has great size at 6'7 and 310 pounds. He is likely a right tackle at the next level and would likely struggle against fast, athletic pass rushers. It is a need pick though and he makes the Lions better.
