Here is my final stab at a mock for the 2016 NFL Draft. This draft is poised to be one with plenty of movement as teams eye valuable players they covet. Don't be surprised to see movement that alters the picks that occur throughout the first round. This mock I have created doesn't take any trades into account and is strictly analyzing the drafting process though the lens of the current selection slots.  

Stay tuned as I cover the Minnesota Vikings live from Winter Park for all seven rounds this weekend!

1. Los Angeles Rams- Jared Goff- QB - California 
2. Philadelphia Eagles- Carson Wentz- QB - North Dakota State
3. San Diego Chargers- DeForest Buckner- DE- Oregon
4. Dallas Cowboys- Ezekiel Elliott- RB- Ohio State
5. Jacksonville Jaguars- Joey Bosa- DE- Ohio State
6. Baltimore Ravens- Jalen Ramsey- DB- Florida State
7. San Francisco 49ers- Laremy Tunsil- OT - Ole Miss
8. Cleveland Browns- Paxton Lynch- QB- Memphis 
9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Ronnie Stanley- OT- Notre Dame
10. New York Giants- Jack Conklin- OT- Michigan State
11. Chicago Bears- Leonard Floyd- DE/OLB- Georgia
12. New Orleans Saints- Myles Jack- LB- UCLA
13. Miami Dolphins- Vernon Hargreaves- CB- Florida
14. Oakland Raiders- Robert Nkemdiche- DT- Ole Miss
15. Tennessee Titans- Josh Doctson- WR- TCU
16. Detroit Lions- Jarran Reed- DT- Alabama
17. Atlanta Falcons- Darron Lee- LB- Ohio State
18. Indianapolis Colts- Shaq Lawson- DE- Clemson
19. Buffalo Bills- Reggie Ragland- LB- Alabama
20. New York Jets- Kevin Dodd- DE- Clemson
21. Washington Redskins- Karl Joseph- S- West Virginia
22. Houston Texans- Corey Coleman- WR- Baylor
23. Minnesota Vikings- Laquon Treadwell- WR- Ole Miss
- The Vikings really need a game-changing wide receiver and drafting Laquon Treadwell would fill that void. Treadwell is a crafty route runner who knows how to high-point the football. His muddy combine and pro-day numbers raise concerns about his speed. However, he is so polished as a route runner and in my eyes is easily the most refined prospect in this class. Not to mention, the upgrade he can provide in the red zone is exactly what the Vikings have been yearning for. Josh Doctson will go before Treadwell, so Vikings fans won't be clamoring for the TCU product. Treadwell is a top talent at wide receiver and was widely considered the top wide receiver early in the draft process. I'm not as concerned with his workout numbers like many are. In my opinion, he is the best fit for the Vikings' offense. 
24. Cincinnati Bengals- Will Fuller- WR- Notre Dame
25. Pittsburgh Steelers- Vernon Butler- DT- Louisiana Tech
26. Seattle Seahawks- Germain Ifedi- OT- Texas A&M
27. Green Bay Packers- Andrew Billings- DT- Baylor
28. Kansas City Chiefs- Cody Whitehair- G/OT- Kansas State
29. Arizona Cardinals- Ryan Kelly- C- Alabama
30. Carolina Panthers- William Jackson- CB- Houston
31. Denver Broncos- Sheldon Rankins- DL- Louisville
