2016 NFL Draft Re-Mock



This is a 2016 NFL Draft Re-Mock. I'm going back to 2016 and re-distributing all of the 2016 NFL Draft prospects to all of the teams in the 2016 NFL Draft order. This 2016 NFL Draft Re-Mock is based on how these players have performed in their careers, as well as the needs each team had back in 2016.

  1. Los Angeles Rams: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Jared Goff, QB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Jared Goff, QB

    The Rams traded up for Jared Goff, which turned out to be a huge mistake. They've had plenty of success with Goff at the helm, but only in spite of him. Goff was holding back the Rams, who would still be interested in another quarterback at this juncture. That would have been Carson Wentz a year ago, but in the wake of Wentz' dire struggles, Dak Prescott would be the top choice if this draft were to be completed again. Prescott is coming off a nasty injury, but should be ready for the 2021 opener.

  2. Philadelphia Eagles: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Carson Wentz, QB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Carson Wentz, QB

    This might be highly controversial, given how horrible Carson Wentz was in 2020. However, Wentz was incredible in the three years beforehand, so I'd like to believe that 2020 was just a fluke. Wentz would have won MVP in 2017 had he not gotten injured, and his great start to the season allowed the Eagles to get the No. 1 seed, ultimately leading to a Super Bowl victory. Wentz also willed his injury-ravaged team to the playoffs in 2019.

  3. San Diego Chargers: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Joey Bosa, DE
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: DeForest Buckner, DT

    The Chargers, like the Eagles, would make the same pick. Joey Bosa has been incredible for them, despite his injuries. He's one of the top edge rushers in the NFL, and he gives the team a chance to beat Patrick Mahomes with his incredible pass-rushing ability.



  4. Dallas Cowboys: Tyreek Hill, WR, West Alabama
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Ezekiel Elliott, RB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Jalen Ramsey, CB

    Ezekiel Elliott has enjoyed some bright moments in his career, but he's a running back, so choosing one this early was always a mistake. Instead, the Cowboys could obtain an even more dynamic play-maker, as Tyreek Hill's presence would mean that Dallas wouldn't have to trade a first-round pick for Amari Cooper.

  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: DeForest Buckner, DE/DT, Oregon
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Jalen Ramsey, CB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Joey Bosa, DE

    I would have mocked DeForest Buckner to the Jaguars if I had him available. That would've ended up being an incorrect prediction, but it ultimately would have been the right pick. The Jaguars had nothing at defensive tackle at the time, and getting Buckner would prevent rival Indianapolis from obtaining him.

  6. Baltimore Ravens: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Ronnie Stanley, OT
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Laremy Tunsil, OT

    The Ravens revealed that they would have selected Laremy Tunsil if it wasn't for the infamous bong-gate. Luckily for them, it turned out to be the correct decision, as Ronnie Stanley has been one of the best left tackles in the NFL over the past few years.



  7. San Francisco 49ers: Jalen Ramsey, CB/S, Florida State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: DeForest Buckner, DT
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Ronnie Stanley, OT

    The 49ers hadn't acquired Richard Sherman yet, so they had a huge hole at cornerback at this juncture. Jalen Ramsey was long gone by the time they were on the clock, but they surely would have considered him if he were available at this pick.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Jack Conklin, OT
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Taylor Decker, OT

    Three tackle options make sense - Laremy Tunsil, Jack Conklin, Taylor Decker - but Michael Thomas is the best player available who would make sense for the Titans. Their top receivers at this time were Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas. Think Thomas would've been an upgrade?

  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin Byard, S, Middle Tennessee State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Vernon Hargreaves, CB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB

    The Buccaneers took the wrong defensive back. Vernon Hargreaves has been an epic bust, so there are so many better options. The best of the bunch is the criminally underrated Kevin Byard, who would have been a colossal upgrade at safety.



  10. New York Giants: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Eli Apple, CB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Jack Conklin, OT

    I mocked Jack Conklin to the Giants, which made sense because they had a big need at tackle. The Giants now know that bong-gate wasn't a big deal, so they'd have interest in Laremy Tunsil to bolster their poor blocking.

  11. Chicago Bears: Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Shaq Lawson, DE

    The Bears had nothing at running back entering the 2016 NFL Draft - Jeremy Langford was the top player at the position - so they would've had interest in either Derrick Henry or Ezekiel Elliott. The former has been better over the past couple of years.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Chris Jones, DE/DT, Mississippi State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Sheldon Rankins, DT
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Vernon Hargreaves, CB

    The Saints selected Sheldon Rankins, so they were obviously in the market for a defensive tackle. With that in mind, they would now prefer the superior player of the position. I wanted to mock Chris Jones a few selections earlier, but couldn't find a logical spot for him.



  13. Miami Dolphins: Joe Thuney, G, N.C. State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Laremy Tunsil, OT
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Myles Jack, LB

    Laremy Tunsil fell into the Dolphins' lap during the 2016 NFL Draft. He's not available in the re-mock, so I imagine Miami would have great interest in the great Joe Thuney to fill an enormous need at guard. Obtaining him would prevent the Patriots from having him on their roster.

  14. Oakland Raiders: Justin Simmons, S, Boston College
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Karl Joseph, S
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Eli Apple, CB

    Karl Joseph was a huge bust for the Raiders. They ended up taking the wrong safety. Justin Simmons was a far better option, and having him on the roster would prevent rival Denver from getting him.

  15. Cleveland Browns: Jack Conklin, OT/G, Michigan State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Corey Coleman, WR
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Ezekiel Elliott, RB

    The Browns spent big bucks acquiring Jack Conklin during the 2020 free agent period, so I imagine they would have strong interest in selecting him with this pick. He would have been a much better choice than Corey Coleman!

  16. Detroit Lions: Taylor Decker, OT/G, Ohio State
    Actual 2016 NFL Draft Pick: Taylor Decker, OT
    My 2016 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Sheldon Rankins, DT

    I'll stick with what the Lions originally did in the 2016 NFL Draft. Taylor Decker was considered a reach at the time, but he ended up being a great pick. He's still the correct choice in this scenario.
