The NFL Draft is exactly two weeks away, and things are beginning to heat up in a big way. Rumors are flying everywhere, and the first trade of the draft has already been agreed to. Earlier this morning, the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans agreed to a deal that would send the Rams up to the top pick in the draft, while the Titans drop back to 15th overall, while picking up an addition first rounder in 2017, a pair of second round picks this year, and a third round pick in both the 2016 and 2017 draft. With the draft being turned on its’ proverbial head, so has my mock draft. Due to that fact, I am here to do my third (and final!) NFL Mock Draft. Let’s get right down to business..

1.) Los Angeles Rams (via Tennessee Titans)- Jared Goff [QB/California]

Not even 12 hours after Kobe Bryant’s retirement game went final, the Rams stunned us all by making this move. Depending on who you listen to, it’s either Goff or Wentz going to L.A. After thinking about it, my money is on the Rams taking the homegrown talent.

2.) Cleveland Browns- Carson Wentz (QB/North Dakota State)

With the NFL Draft a little less than three weeks away, all eyes are quickly turning to Philadelphia. What avenue will the Eagles explore with the eighth overall pick?  I’ve done a pair of NFL Mock Drafts in the past, but this one will have a twist. Unlike my earlier mock drafts, this one will be solely focused on the Eagles. In addition to my selections, I will take an in-depth look at why those picks make sense. Without further ado, let’s get started…

1st Round; 5th Overall [via trade with Jaguars]- Ronnie Stanley (OT/Notre Dame)

Ryan’s Take: The Eagles have many possible directions with this pick. They could choose to address the “supposedly” glaring need at quarterback, by taking Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. Howie Roseman and Co. could also opt to strengthen the secondary by taking Vernon Hargreaves, or landing a superstar running back in Ezekiel Elliot. This time though, I’m opting to give the Eagles one of the offensive building blocks for the next 15 years in Ronnie Stanley. Recent mock drafts have selected that the Baltimore Ravens could snag Stanley with the sixth overall pick, so I tend to believe the Birds will leapfrog the Ravens to get the man they want.

Since the initial Free Agency Frenzy, things have been quite boring for the NFL. Teams have now shifted their focus towards the NFL Draft in April, and have started attending pro days to scout incoming talent. Things got a little more interesting on Wednesday, though. As teams continue to do research on the incoming pool of talent, the Philadelphia Eagles swooped (See what I did there?  Haha) under the radar, announcing that the team has come to terms on a one-year contract with former New York Giant Reuben Randle.

The craziest part of the NFL year is in full swing.  Free Agency is upon us, and players are switching teams, and the entire league is in flux. Recent signings, and trades have altered some of my previous mock selections, so there will be a number of noticeable differences in this version. Before you all get bored with hearing me talk, let’s get into my second 2016 NFL Mock Draft- Post Free Agency Edition.

1.) Tennessee Titans- Laremy Tunsil (OT/Mississippi)

The Titans found themselves a franchise quarterback in last year’s draft, with Marcus Mariota.  They already have a number of solid, young weapons in Kendall Wright, Delanie Walker, and Dorial Green-Beckham.  They added to that arsenal of weapons by acquiring DeMarco Murray from the Eagles. That made an already easy choice, even easier.

2.) Cleveland Browns- Carson Wentz (QB/North Dakota State)

With the NFL season now in the books, it’s time to start turning our attention to the offseason. One of the most exciting parts of the NFL offseason, is the NFL Draft. It’s the time of year, where hundreds of bright-eyed college youngsters find themselves watching their phones, hoping for that one fateful phone call that will change their lives. Hundreds declare, while only 256 are selected.  The lights shine bright, and the media is out in droves. This year’s class is one of the more talented classes in the last 10 years, with Myles Jack, Laremy Tunsil, and Laquon Treadwell among the classes top prospects. Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were on the clock, selecting Florida State product Jameis Winston with the first overall pick. Former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota went second overall to the Tennessee Titans. This year, the Titans have moved up a spot, and the lights shine bright on them. Let’s get right into it, and break down TalkSportsPhilly’s NFL Mock Draft: Version 1.0.

1.) Tennessee Titans- Laremy Tunsil (OT/Mississippi)

The Titans found themselves a franchise quarterback in last year’s draft, with Marcus Mariota.  They already have a number of solid, young weapons in Kendall Wright, Delanie Walker, and Dorial Green-Beckham.  On the left side of the offensive line, Taylor Lewan is there to hold down the fort.  It’s not very often that you get the chance to have a pair of franchise tackles, protecting your franchise quarterback. For those reasons, it’s a no-brainer for the Titans to select Tunsil.

2.) Cleveland Browns- Jared Goff (QB/California)
