The 2016 NFL Draft received a bit of a shakeup with the blockbuster trade between the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Rams, which now gives LA the No. 1 overall pick. How will the rest of the draft shape up? Niner Noise takes a look with this Round 1 mock draft for every team.
The 2016 NFL Draft may go a little differently now in the wake of the blockbuster trade, which gives the Los Angeles Rams the No. 1 overall pick after sending off a number of selections with the Tennessee Titans.
Los Angeles is in the market for a quarterback, and the move all but assures analysts the team will be targeting one with the first selection.
And, according to Benjamin Allbright from Denver’s 1340 radio, the pick will be North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz.
The Cleveland Browns hold the No. 2 pick in the draft. And they are another quarterback-hungry team after finally parting ways with embattled signal-caller Johnny Manziel earlier this offseason.
Despite the acquisition of fellow QB Robert Griffin III, Cleveland is still likely on the market for its next franchise guy under center. According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, Cal’s Jared Goff appears to be the top target.
How will the rest of Round 1 shape up after two quarterbacks go, in all likelihood, in the first two selections of the draft? And what will the San Francisco 49ers do now that the possibility of a player like Goff — a Bay Area native — probably won’t be available?
Niner Noise takes a look at the rest of the first round for all 32 teams in the NFL Draft in this post-trade mock.
Let’s dig in and see how it shapes up.
