2016 NFL Mock Draft — Xavier Cromartie’s Three-Round Mock (4.0)

Tags — mock draft, NFL Draft prospects, sleepers, dynasty rookie draft

 

Twitter @CFBMetrics, @FFMetrics 

At College Football Metrics, we want to outperform all other scouting services in correctly evaluating where teams should take prospects in the NFL Draft. But we also want to lead the way in predicting what teams will actually do with their draft picks. In 2015, we made our debut in The Huddle Report’s exclusive, expert-only NFL Draft contests. CFM took 5th place (out of 113) in the mock draft competition and 4th place (out of 56) in the top 100 board competition. In 2016, we want double crowns!

CFM has partnered with Xavier Cromartie (Twitter @xaviercromartie) to produce mock drafts and top 100 prospect boards based on his latest intel, research, and analysis. Xavier was the final grand prize winner of ESPN’s NFL Draft 1st Round Forecast game, and he is the undefeated Play The Draft Champion Emeritus.

Draft scenarios change as new information comes in during draft season, and so we will run updates here as often as Xavier makes adjustments to his mocks and boards.

 

Round 1

1. Tennessee Titans: OT Laremy Tunsil (Mississippi) Last = 1  —  He stays at the top spot by doing nothing.

2. Cleveland Browns: QB Carson Wentz (North Dakota State) Last = 2  —  No love for tiny-handed QBs in Cleveland. 29 on the Wonderlic.

3. San Diego Chargers: CB Jalen Ramsey (Florida State) Last = 3  —  Every team would like to get him, even the Titans.

4. Dallas Cowboys: LB Myles Jack (UCLA) (+) Last = 5  —  Jack is a more dynamic player than Bosa.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE Joey Bosa (Ohio State) (-) Last = 4  —  His incredible agility saved his draft stock.

6. Baltimore Ravens: DE DeForest Buckner (Oregon) Last = 6  —  The fourth of four guys in the running for ‘best defender’ in the class.

7. San Francisco 49ers: QB Jared Goff (Cal) Last = 7      Lynch could enter the conversation here soon.

8. Miami Dolphins: CB Vernon Hargreaves (Florida) Last = 8   —  Seems like the only choice unless Bosa or Jack fall through.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: OT Ronnie Stanley (Notre Dame) Last = 9   —  Leonard Floyd may be in play, but Stanley should be higher on the board.

10. New York Giants: DT A’Shawn Robinson (Alabama) (+) Last = 13  —  Likely the first of many DTs.

11. Chicago Bears: OLB Leonard Floyd (Georgia) Last = 11  —  Had a good Combine, as expected.

12. New Orleans Saints: DT Sheldon Rankins (Louisville) (+) Last = 28  —  Solidly in the mid-first at this point.

13. Philadelphia Eagles: QB Paxton Lynch (Memphis) (+) Last = 15  —  If they have a shot at one of the top 3 QBs, they’ll probably go for it.

14. Oakland Raiders: LB Reggie Ragland (Alabama) Last = 14   —  Stock up on DBs later.

15. Los Angeles Rams: QB Connor Cook (Michigan State) (+) Last = 67   —  Gotta have a QB.

16. Detroit Lions: OT Jack Conklin (Michigan State) Last = 16   —  Nothing changed, he was always a mid-first.

17. Atlanta Falcons: LB Darron Lee (Ohio State) Last = 17   —  He was supposed to run fast.

18. Indianapolis Colts: RB Ezekiel Elliott (Ohio State) (-) Last = 10   —  Should go somewhere in the 10-20 range.

19. Buffalo Bills: DE Kevin Dodd (Clemson) (+) Last = 39   —  Universally agreed to be slightly better than Shaq Lawson.

20. New York Jets: DE Shaq Lawson (Clemson) (+) Last = 40  —  Moved up a little bit from fringe 1st/2nd to late-1st.

21. Washington Pigskins: DT Jarran Reed (Alabama) Last = 21   —  Consistent run-stuffing nose.

22. Houston Texans: QB Christian Hackenberg (Penn State) (+) Last = 52   —  If you want him, you can’t wait.

23. Minnesota Vikings: WR Laquon Treadwell (Mississippi) Last = 23   —  He was always a late-1 because he’s slow. The media pumped him as an early-1.

24. Cincinnati Bengals: DT Robert Nkemdiche (Mississippi) (-) Last = 19   —  He seems destined for the Bengals.

25. Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Kendall Fuller (Virginia Tech) (-) Last = 24   —  Microfracture may send him to early 2nd, but he’s a 1st when healthy.

26. Seattle Seahawks: OT Germain Ifedi (Texas A&M) (+) Last = 54  —  I thought he was a 2nd but he’s getting late-1st chatter.

27. Green Bay Packers: OT Jason Spriggs (Indiana) (+) Last = 35   —  Should be a late-1st for sure now.

28. Kansas City Chiefs: CB Eli Apple (Ohio State) (-) Last = 25   —  A little overrated, late 1st/early 2nd.

29. Arizona Cardinals: DE Emmanuel Ogbah (Oklahoma State) (+) Last = 30  Good Combine, was always a late 1st.

30. Carolina Panthers: OT Taylor Decker (Ohio State) (-) Last =  —  18  Might belong a little higher but right tackles tend to slip.

31. Denver Broncos: DT Austin Johnson (Penn State) (+) Last = 48   —  Probably taking a DL here if no OT is available.

 

 

Round 2

32. Cleveland Browns: WR Josh Doctson (Texas Christian) (+) Last = 60

33. Tennessee Titans: S Keanu Neal (Florida) (+) Last = 44

 — Franchise tag values announced: QB $19.9M

 — Waiting on group-two about to go…the machine time might be OK now. 

— All the buzz is Jalen Ramsey, maybe more buzz for his 40-time than any single player this event.

==========

— People are all talking: TJ Green, Jalen Ramsey, Vernon Hargreaves. That’s the DB buzz. Not sure anyone else is in Indy.

 — Jalen Ramsey went 41.5″ vertical, and 11’3 broad jump. He’s locking up top 5 status. He’s going to run the 40-time in a few minutes. He goes sub-4.4, he may be the #1 pick overall. 

 — I’m with Mike Mayock, a first, I wish I could see West Virginia Safety prospect Karl Joseph move–he could be the best Safety prospect in the 206 class, but the knee injury has him in doubt to some degree. 

— I sense a huge T.J. Green, Clemson surge coming. He is all the buzz behind the scenes right now. He was a later-round projection…he is sending everyone to the tape. He might be the Byron Jones/Eric Rowe rise of this draft.

 — Updated ‘Winners/Losers from Sunday’ at the bottom of this page, FYI

– Reported trouble with the 40-yard dash timer…all the DB times could be in question. The times are all over the place now…they are using hand times now.

Not going to worry about anything being reported until they announce the official times–I don’t know what to trust right now. 

I’m getting two sets of times on each run…different by .05 +/- on everyone hand vs. machine

 

T.J. Green, Clemson — 4.36 (un) and a 1.52 (un) 10-yard split…wow. At 6’2″+ — huge winner today. 

 — Jonathan Jones, Auburn — 4.34 (un) and a a 1.48 (un) 10-yard…double-wow.

 — The QB prospect I love that no one else does, Vernon Adams went on NFL Network being interviewed this morning — their first question to him…”You got to throw to WRs and RBs, but what did you think about Ezekiel Elliott and Derrick Henry?” Holy $%^…is there any thought at the NFL Combine that is not Ohio State or Alabama-based…besides Carson Wentz? Adams should be asked real prospect questions first, then you can get into other stuff. It’s typical…and it shapes perception; and hurts guys like Adams. 

– All the experts are visually profiling the QB prospects this morning, because QB is all that matters in media coverage, and everyone is doing there thing–why won’t one person compare Jared Goff to Tom Brady? I’m not saying as a talent, that’s a separate argument. Just when they tar and feather him with ‘skinny frame’, but ‘polished’?

I’ll tell you why — they don’t want to remind you that they do this for a living, and they miss-scouted the greatest QB to ever play the game. 

Can we ever have real conversations about draft prospects, and TV show promotions about how great everyone is…and how every Ohio State and Alabama prospect is the greatest ever (pandering to the two most passionate fanbases in CFB)? We mock politicians pandering to us…and we lap it up for NFL analysis. 

 

Sunday WINNERS and LOSERS from the NFL Combine…

WINNERS

1) DE Shaq Lawson, Clemson — His size, skill/production, decent speed-agility…it all confirms he is a legit 1st-round talent…in a draft shy on DE talents. By not hurting himself, he helped himself…as many did hurt themselves at the DE position. 

2) DE Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State — The fast 40-time at 270+ pounds is going to push him solidly into the first round conversation for sure. 

3) LB Darron Lee, Ohio State — Finally, an Ohio State player surprises to the positive at the NFL Combine. He already had momentum, but his Combine pushes him into the first round for sure. 

4) LB Leonard Floyd, Georgia — He didn’t some of the drills, but what he did was good — he came in at 244-pounds, which was a surprise, and then ran a nice 4.60 and displayed great vertical and broad jumping ability. If he did all the drills, and did them well–he’d be #1 on this list with a bullet. He might deserve to be #1 here. 

5) LB Montese Overton, East Carolina — One of the top 40-times among the LB group, and second best 10-yard split. he’s a ‘player’…and he got totally ignored Sunday. 

 

LOSERS

1) DE Noah Spence, E. Ky/OSU — Well, that’s the end of that hype. Poor 40-times and mediocre agility, not off-the-charts agility…he was a disappointment to most everyone. Add in off-field issues, and you have a guy about to fall out of the top 10…and out of the 1st-round potentially. 

2) DE Shawn Oakman, Baylor — His Combine work confirmed he is not athletic enough to matter in the NFL. Margus Hunt was tall, and more athletic…and hasn’t mattered. Oakman is even stiffer. 

3) LB Scooby Wright, Arizona — Whether it was the injury or what, he doesn’t have the speed-agility to be a top 150 pick. The amazing 2014 season looks like a nice college effort, but not a translation to the NFL. 

4) DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State — he’s a nice, average NFL run stopping DE. he’s not a high-end pass rusher, and his times confirmed that at the NFL Combine. He’s not a top 10 guy…I don’t think he’s a first rounder, but he’ll go top 15 for sure. 

5) DT Adolphus Washington, Ohio State — Terrible times and totals from every facet of his workout. He’s average at best, but because he played at Ohio State, he was shoved down everyone’s throat as a 1st-round prospect from the jump. You have to be kidding me. They are making it easy for me to be anti-OSU prospects in this draft (two years ago, I loved most of them–(Shazier, Roby, Et al)…and I’ve been right about everyone of them thsi NFL Combine, but one so far (you’ll see them in the ‘winners’ section).

FYI

The NFL Combine wraps up 2/29 with the DBs, and we’ll be covering that most of the day Monday. 

On 3/1, Tuesday, our first two non-QB reports will hit: Ezekiel Elliott and Derrick Henry…and the reports will be a steady flow right up to draft day and beyond.

**Forgive any typos, etc. I am moving fast. I’m not going back to correct them. Enjoy, and let your mind do the corrections! ;)

 

Kentrell Brothers and Scooby Wright hurt their NFL prospects with 4.9+ 40-times.

 — For me, the winners from the linebacker group are the lesser-name guys that profile as more athletic/faster, sneaky EDGE rushers…better than some of the bigger name guys

Minnesota’s DeVondre Campbell 6’4/232, 4.58, 1.65

Washington’s Travis Feeney 6’4/230, 4.50, 1.59

— Ohio State’s Darron Lee running a 4.47 will catch a little of heat as well. Nice tape at times, wasn’t sure of his athleticism–much better than expected.

 — The Combine buzz DT from the NFL people right now in Indy…Kenny Clark, UCLA

 — Robert Nkemdiche is generating a lot of chatter–most insiders scoff because of his mega off-field issues. His press conference, that I missed, I heard was a disaster. I need to find it and look at it. 

 — Shaq Lawson has to be considered a ‘winner; today. I wasn’t sure about his athleticism from his tape, but he was better than most in Indy among the DL group. 

 — Noah Spence is another ‘loser’ from the Combine today…times in the 4.8s. His top 10 overall momentum is stalled. 

— The way Shawn Oakman is moving–he’s undraftable…a 5.00 runner, but wow does he move awkwardly.

Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State ‘makes the money’ at the Combine with a 4.65/1.59, and then Oklahoma’s Charles Tapper goes 4.59/1.59

— It was nice knowing you Victor Ochi…5.32 40-time with a 2.11 10-yard split (REPORTED INQUIRY THAT IT IS A BAD RECORDING). CHANGE: Official 4.85

— Best 10-yard split among all DLs so far: Penn State’s Carl Nassib and Boise State’s Kamalei Correa at 1.63

 — Shaq Lawson runs a 4.73 (un)

 — All the chatter is that there are so many good DT prospects that they are going to collectively fall in the draft because of supply and demand…so much supply with nice demand. 

 — Most of the discussion on the DLs right now is centered around DeForest Buckner. People light up when discussing the possibilities. Everyone, zombie-like, gives Joey Bosa lip service, but I don’t know anyone who really likes him…they just assume he goes highly. Buckner talk gets them excited. 

 

 — D-Line comparison:

Joey Bosa, Ohio State: 6’5″, 4.89 40-yard, 1.69 10-yard, 24 bench reps

Bronson Kaufusi, BYU: 6’6″, 4.88 40-time, 1.69 10-yard, 25 bench reps

 

 — SC State’s DT Javon Hargrave gets the first early buzz…a 4.94 (un) at 309-pounds.

 — Joey Bosa = 4.89 (un) 40-time…will any Ohio State guy live up to the hype here? That number confirms/ends any Bosa as #1 talk.

WINNERS and LOSERS from Saturday…

WINNERS

1) WR Josh Doctson, TCU — He leaves this event as the #1 WR. His measurables confirmed his ‘plus’ athleticism, and he was even better working the drills. Now, the media is going to hold on to being wrong about Laquon Treadwell for about another week or three, but eventually Doctson seizes the #1 WR spot for analysts…a top 10-15 pick.

2) WR Sterling Shepard, Oklahoma — He leaves the Combine making an argument as a 1st-round draft pick. He will not surpass Doctson because the NFL still values size more than anything.

3) WR Devon Cajuste, Stanford — He goes from a WR prospect not many cared about to one they will, but more importantly he’s now a guy you can speculate about a move to tight end as well at 6’3″+/230+ with nice speed and amazing agility. 

4) TE Ben Braunecker, Harvard — In a weaker TE class, Braunecker was the most athletic among those who participated in the drills. 

5) WR Will Fuller, Notre Dame — I could argue he is #1 on this list of ‘winners’…not for me, but for life in general. He had the 1-2 punch of being fast (4.32), and the main analyst for the Combine (who is a person paid to cover Notre Dame games during the regular-season) throwing gallons of gasoline on tiny fire…and thus a two-hour Will Fuller infomercial ensued. Fuller is good, but got inordinate amount of accolades and positivity.

 

LOSERS

1) DeRunnya Wilson, Ole Miss — He goes from a guy people projected 2nd-3rd round to undraftable, and shouldn’t even get a camp tryout.  From an athletic perspective, honestly, I have never seen a worse WR athletically at the NFL Combine in all my years, that I can recall. 

2) Pharoh Cooper, So Carolina — What he did do at the Combine was poor…a bad bench, weak vertical and flimsy broad jump. He then looked very average in the passing/catching drills. He goes from guy I thought could be a top 40 WR potentially, to guy I hit the pause button on. 

3) WR Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss — Guys like Treadwell (and Cooper…and Ezekiel Elliott, and Hunter Henry) should be punished for skipping out on drills…acting like they are above it all. The draft media is wrong about the top prospects at each skill position with about 99% of the time, so it’s smart for the ‘darlings’ to hide themselves from getting exposed…but it’s the hiding that should expose them. 

The drills Treadwell did were weak, like Cooper. Treadwell is not Alshon Jeffery or Demaryius Thomas…he’s muscular and fairly tall like them, but he’s not the athlete they are. 

4) WR Braxton Miller, Ohio State — His 40-time was average, but he salvaged it with great agility drills. What I thought hurt him was the passing/catching drills. He’s not a natural WR…and I’ve thought that watching his tape, and watching him at the Senior Bowl. He has an NFL body, but not true WR gifts. He’s going to be a project that some NFL team takes too highly and forces him into the offense, and then has to make excuses about. In time, maybe he’s great…but he needs to go to a team that will quasi-redshirt him, protect early on. 

5) QB Vernon Adams, Oregon — Some good things happened here…he had a larger hand size measurement–better than Goff or Hackenberg. He had nice agility times. However, no one cared. We got 100 hours of Christian Hackenberg and Connor Cook talk (which is a waste of air)…and nothing about Adams, who is arguably on the of the three best QB prospects in the draft.

2016 NFL Combine Results (SAT) Streaming Notes (FINAL)

*Right click on this page, then hit ‘refresh’ or ‘reload’ to connect/update to our latest commentary…

**Forgive any typos, etc. I am moving fast. I’m not going back to correct them. Enjoy, and let your mind do the corrections! ;)

 

*Wrapping it up for today. We’ll be back at it on Sunday 9am to ?* 

 

 — OSU’s Nick Vannett looks very smooth catching the ball in the gauntlet drills. 

 — This is a terrible year for tight end prospects. MyCole Pruitt would have been the #1 TE prospect in this class. I will be scouring the earth for WRs to convert to TE, and basketball players to convert over the next few weeks. 

 — What a mess at tight end. The top guys are skipping out. Hunter Henry isn’t doing anything. Enjoy the NFL Combine for now, because it’s going to be a nothing event soon…top guys are skipping out more and more, which is smart. It’s a dog and pony show. They can control their measurables with home cooking at their Pro Days. It’s what I’d do with top guys or with ones I knew had bad times, if I were their advisor. This event is about to become a step above a  regional combine level of talent. 

 — I had some hope for TE Bryce Williams to run around a 4.75-4.80, but he ran 4.9+, and looks very stiff. I’m moving on from him as any type of sleeper.

— Honestly, Braxton Miller…everytime I look up he’s dropping another pass.

 — Braxton Miller isn’t showing me much of anything, as far as possible 1st-round WRs go…not even a top 100 guy. Flimsy speed, so-so hands, in experienced. 

 — Sterling Shepard is just a natural football player/WR. Very smooth in the receiving drills. He’s going to be a big winner here today.

 — Laquon Treadwell participating in receiving drills with a baseball hat on backwards is not going to help his draft stock. He’s already creating doubt by skipping the speed-agility, and being awful in the vertical. Everyone wants to compare him to Demaryius Thomas, so I will too…Treadwell is a very unathletic Demaryius Thomas; all muscle no athleticism. 

Besides having one of the worst verticals, b-jump & bench among WRs + skipping everything else-it’s been a good Combine for Laquon Treadwell 

==========

Laquon Treadwell’s measurables, in the drills he is participating in, are the absolute worst…a 33″ vertical, 12 reps on the bench, and a 9’9″ broad jump. One more Alshon Jeffery comp and I’m going to scream…

It’s not 1985 or 2005. Big, tall WRs who are slow are not great just because they are ‘big and tall’. There’s a place for them, but Treadwell as a likely 4.7-4.8 runner with no vertical or bench strength…that’s not a 1st-round WR. 

– There’s an odd dark cloud of today’s proceedings. No one player has really jumped up and grasped a brass ring with the analysts etc. Carson Wentz wasn’t the athlete everyone thought he was. Braxton Miller belly flopped the 40-time versus lofty expectations. Will Fuller has the media/analyst hype title right now, but I think Josh Doctson is getting the underground buzz among NFL people.

 — I never understood the love of DeRunnya Wilson…his 40-time confirms that.

 

All WRs after both groups have run 40-times…

— I never want to hear ‘quicker than fast’ ever again.

 — The idol build on Braxton Miller just fell a bit…he ran a 4.50…not the 4.3s people were chattering about. Nothing can stop the Ohio State push, however. 

 — No one in the 2nd QB group is shocking anyone in the 40-times, but I do get the sense Paxton Lynch is the ‘chosen one’ for #3 QB as far as ‘chatter’ goes. Christian Hackenberg is fading, and Connor Cook is getting crushed in the ‘perception’ battle.

I’ve heard at least three different NFL people talking with disgust or indifference about Connor Cook in the past 30+ minutes.

==========

 — Some Indy chatter: Will Fuller working his way into the 1st-round.

I don’t know about that…Devin Smith called, and wants his ‘deep ball master’ draft hype back. 

 — I am watching these QB prospects throw from the first-group…Connor Cook does absolutely nothing for me, never has. I think his draft stock is going to plummet. He’s been battered by ‘leadership’ knocks, and his throwing drills have been nothing amazing. He’s been crushed in the court of public opinion.

– Tyler Boyd looks fantastic, smooth in the receiving drills.

Leonte Carroo has excellent hands, and breezed through the receiving drills.

Pharoh Cooper butchered two catches in the first run through gauntlet drill, and looked much better his second time through.

Josh Doctson put on a small show in the receiving drills…wow. I don’t think enough is being made of it. Subtly, beautiful. Docton may be the better version of DeAndre Hopkins

 

– After the 1st group of WRs and QBs, there was no ‘star born’. The analysts are getting semi-agitated/restless…so the first sign of something exciting is going to get an extra helping of hype. Carson Wentz runs a sub 4.60 and he may get all that love. Braxton Miller is in that same ‘push’ line. 

 — You’re going to hear what a disappointment the early WR group was, and they are, but keep in mind the top two talents among the group-one (Cooper and Coleman) aren’t running.

Jeff Driskel just popped a 4.56 40-time…that’s going to light up his prospect rank even more.

 — Tyrone Boykin’s NFL career just ended with a 4.80 40-time. He’s not an NFL QB, and now he’s not an NFL WR.

 — Vernon Adams as disappointing 4.84 40-time. He’s a great QB prospect, very underrated, but I hoped he would hit the 4.6s to gain extra attention–he didn’t do it. 

=====================

 

Winners and Losers from NFL Combine Friday…

TOP 5 WINNERS

1) OT Jason Spriggs, Indiana — he jumps from possible first-round pick to almost an assured one…and maybe forces his way into the 2nd OT prospect taken in the draft.

2) Kenneth Dixon, La. Tech — He did what he had to do. I thought he might get lost among the group, and he didn’t get a ton of coverage/words from the NFL Network, but he ran faster than I fear he would come in at, he caught the ball well (as expected), and was one of the best in agility of the group. I thought he may fade after Friday, I think he holds a top 100 spot and maybe took a small step forward.

3) RB Keith Marshall, Georgia — When you run a 4.31 at 219-pounds, you’re going top 100.

4) RB Daniel Lasco, Cal — So close to moving into an ‘A’ grade prospect, but his agility was stiff (reminding people about a past hip injury). He moved from ‘C’ to ‘B’ grade with his excellent Combine aside from the agility.

5) OT Jack Conklin, Michigan State — Secured his high 1st-round grades, and moves into the argument as a the #2 OT prospect.

*6) OT Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss — Tunsil skipped most of the measurement stuff, and had Ronnie Staley exploded, Tunsil may have fallen from everyone’s #1 OT/overall. It didn’t happen. Tunsil leaves Friday with a firmer consensus grip at #1 overall.

 

TOP 5 LOSERS

1) RB Alex Collins, Arkansas — Terrible day. Slower 40-time for his 217-pound size. Awful vertical and broad jump.

2) RB Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State — I think his top 10 overall draft pick hopes were dashed here. Sure, he ran a 4.4+ 40-time, but everything else was dicey…or he ‘skipped it’.

3) RB Jordan Howard, Indiana — No 40-time, no agility drills…what he did do was average. A lot people here thought Howard had a chance to jump into the top 2 discussion at RB–that’s on a pause until his Pro Day now.

4) OT Ronnie Staley, Notre Dame — Had a chance to seize his growing momentum as ‘better than Tunsil’, but he didn’t gasp it. Still fine, but instead of taking a step forward, Staley stayed pat…while Jason Spriggs and Jack Conklin took a step forward.

5) OG Vadal Alexander, LSU — Had a chance to leap from Cody Whitehair, but had poor measurables. He still fine, but not going to rocket up any lists after this.
