Fan Mock Draft: If Not A QB, Then Who?


This is it, my final mock draft in the "Fan Mock Draft" series. I better make this a good one. Here are the first seven selections (are you writing this down?). Who will the Eagles take at No. 8? Consider yourself on the clock ...

1. Tennessee Titans - Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil

I wanted to go off the board here, but I just can't get away from the Titans going with Tunsil here and continuing to invest in the offensive line. The alternative seems to be either Jalen Ramsey or a trade down (with the Cowboys, potentially), but I'm going with the stud left tackle here to help protect Marcus Mariota.

2. Cleveland Browns - North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz

This is where it gets interesting. Will a team make a move up to select the two-time national champion from North Dakota State? If they do, it could very well happen at No. 2, where multiple analysts have reported that Cleveland is looking to move down despite having a pretty big hole under center. Consider this the first wild card slot in this draft.

3. San Diego Chargers - Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey

The Bolts let Eric Weddle leave town, and with a potential need at both corner as well as at safety, Ramsey would fit in perfectly and is the best player on the board. Good situation for the Chargers to be in, especially if they believe they can orchestrate a trade with the ...

4. Dallas Cowboys - California QB Jared Goff

Jerry Jones has come out and said that there's no way the Cowboys select a quarterback and that they're all in on Tony Romo. But who calls the shots in Valley Ranch these days? Jerry? Or his son, Stephen? This is a franchise not accustomed to picking in the Top 5, so selecting a franchise quarterback may be too much to pass up on, especially considering the pieces they have on the offensive line to protect him if Romo does go down again in 2016.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars - Ohio State DE Joey Bosa

Jacksonville lost last year's first-round pick Dante Fowler to injury in the spring, but they expect him back and look to add another big piece on the defensive line with Bosa, a player some have compared to current Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett. Bennett, who played for Gus Bradley, offers value as a versatile lineman who can line up and win inside or outside, just like Bosa. Jacksonville was going hard after Dolphins' free agent Olivier Vernon before he signed with the Giants, so pass rush help is certainly on its mind.

6. Baltimore Ravens - Notre Dame OL Ronnie Stanley

The Ravens lost Kelechi Osemele in free agency, and are in love with big bodies up front. Stanley is a big kid with solid athleticism and the physical tools to be an outstanding tackle, but needs to refine some of the smaller details in his game. Enter Juan Castillo, one of the best offensive line coaches in the league when it comes to getting the most out of his players. I imagine that Castillo will be able to do just that with Stanley.

7. San Francisco 49ers - UCLA LB Myles Jack

Eagles fans are well aware of Chip Kelly's trends when it comes to the NFL Draft. Kelly may not be calling all the shots in San Francisco at the moment, but the talent of Myles Jack may be too much to pass up on. This is a good fit after the losses the 49ers have suffered at the position over the last few years.

So who will it be, Eagles fans? Is Oregon's DeForest Buckner too good to pass up on? Can Ezekiel Elliott be the bell-cow back in this Eagles offense? Does the upside of Jaylon Smith intrigue you if he's healthy? Is there someone else you'd rather select? Cast your vote now!
