Our Mock Draft: Picks 11-20

  1. Chicago Bears (6-10) – A’Shawn Robinson, Defensive Tackle – Their defensive line being the weak point in the 2015/16, they are most likely going to take a Defensive Tackle in the 2016 Draft. With that, the best defensive tackle on the market for the draft is A’Shawn Robinson. This 6’4”, 307 lb former Crimson Tide defensive tackle had an outstanding performance in 2015 and made great contributions to the National Title winning team.
  2. New Orleans Saints (7-9) – Myles Jack, Outside Linebacker/Running Back – Myles Jack might be the best linebacker in the draft and the Saints would be advised to go and buy some lottery tickets if Jack falls to them. Jack was strong enough to dominate Pac-12 offenses at linebacker and also be a goal line back. The fact that he played running back and averaged 5.7 yards is also a testament to his speed which will make him a force to be reckoned with wherever he goes.  
  3. Miami Dolphins (7-9) – Eli Apple, Cornerback – Miami has made quite a few offseason acquisitions although none really at the defensive back positions. Drafting the explosive corner from Ohio State makes a lot of sense for a team looking to bolster up their defense and be a serious playoff contender this season. Apple provides Miami with good size, speed, and man coverage ability that’s sure to translate from the collegiate field to the professional one.  
  4. Oakland Raiders (7-9) – Ronnie Stanley, Offensive Tackle – With the Raiders stacking up on defense this year via trades and free agents, they are probably looking to take an offensive player to give themselves an extra edge. With the combination of their great defense and tentatively potent offense, we could be looking at the next Super Bowl Championship within the next couple years if they play their cards right.
  5. Los Angeles Rams (7-9) – Emmanuel Ogbah, Defensive End – Physically gifted player that has insane physical ability that will make him a nfl ready player. Very versatile. Can play both defensive end and defensive tackle. Not the fastest or quickest guy at his position but he makes up for it with his power. He is a good fit in the LA Rams defense with Robert Quinn mentoring him and helping him become a good NFL player.
  6. Detroit Lions (7-9) – Josh Doctson, Wide Receiver – As sad as it was to see Calvin Johnson go, this means new talent has to come in at receiver. Josh Doctson is just what they are looking for. Doctson dominated in TCU’s high powered offense and can go up and get a ball against any corner he will face. I think Detroit will try to make Doctson their next star receiver and he will see a lot of targets his rookie year if he goes to Detroit.
  7. Atlanta Falcons (8-8) – Reggie Ragland, Inside Linebacker – Very good run stopper as a linebacker that is a nasty hitter. He can play defensive end and is a powerful pass rusher around the edge. Where he could see some problems in the NFL is he isn’t the fastest linebacker and he could underestimate the speed of the NFL. The Falcons need to start building a physical defense that can stop the run.
  1. Indianapolis Colts (8-8) – Taylor Decker, Offensive Tackle – Coming out of the last season with an injured quarterback and a weak offensive line, their saving grace was their alright defense. Looking to bring an upgrade to their offensive line this year, Taylor Decker would serve as a prime pick for them.
  2. Buffalo Bills (8-8) – Sheldon Rankins, Defensive Tackle – This electric defensive tackle from Louisville is one of the top defensive prospects in this years draft. His combination of speed and strength will play out great on a team like the Buffalo Bills, who’s coach Rex Ryan, is all about the defense. Although he is on the smaller side, Rankins still plays like an animal on the inside and outside, proving to be a total winner for any defensive scheme the Bills might put him in.
  3. New York Jets (10-6) – Darron Lee, Outside Linebacker – Very athletic and smart linebacker. Plays with quick feet and loose hips, was a former high school quarterback and plays with a tenacious speed that is electric at the linebacker position. He is small as a linebacker, has the body type of a big safety. He comes in too fast sometimes and running backs run through his arm tackles. Should be a good fit with the Jets who needs another defensive playmaker.
