Football is almost here!  It’s just a matter of time before the season begins.  The first step was Free Agency, the second was the Schedule.  And now the Draft!  This Thursday @ 8:00 pm the 1st Round of the Draft will be on in prime time and I’ll be glued to the television.  This is a very interesting draft class and it’s hard to predict who each team will pick, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun trying.  So, based on the opinions of experts and my own uneducated musings (and barring any draft spot trades) here it is, Olie’s 2016 Mock Draft:


1. Los Angeles Rams – Jared Goff, QB California

Best of the Rest: Jaylon Smith LB Notre Dame (injury), Chris Jones DT Miss St, Vernon Butler DT LA Tech, Emmanuel Ogbah DE Oklahoma St, Derrick Henry RB Alabama, Noah Spence DE Eastern Kentucky, Jordan Howard RB Indiana, Jonathan Bullard DT Florida, Le’Raven Clark OT Texas Tech, Eli Apple CB OSU, Mackensie Alexander CB Clemson, Tyler Boyd WR Pittsburgh, Germain Ifedi OG Texas A&M, Connor Cook QB MSU.

Notes: DE Deforest Buckner could easily rocket up to the Top 5.  Teams could trade into the Top 10 in order to select Paxton Lynch.  WRs Coleman, Treadwell, & Doctson could flip between the 22-24 slots.  The New England Patriots lost their 1st Rd selection after ‘Deflategate’.
