Here are some bold predictions for the 2016 NFL Draft. They may not happen, or they just might. The goal here is to throw out some predictions that logically could happen, not necessarily to 100% accurately predict the future. Anyway, here they go. --Mike B.
We have not seen our last trade in the first round. A team like the Colts will swap first round picks with the Browns, and the Browns will grab Paxton Lynch after the Colts draft Zeke Elliot.
This is not so much a prediction as a near guarantee. Russell Hansbrough, Jhurell Pressley, and Branden Jackson will all outplay their draft stock.
Mel Kiper got a haircut. You just haven't noticed it since it looks exactly the same.
At least five green room prospects will fall until day two of the draft.
Roger Goodell will be booed at least twice tonight.
Roberto Aguayo, the kicker from Florida State, will be a day two pick.
At least 20 players will illegitimately lose draft stock because of size.
There will be four quarterbacks taken in the first round.
Ronnie Stanley could be the first offensive takle selected.
The Eagles may not go quarterback with their first round pick. Players to watch? Zeke Elliot, Jalen Ramsey, Larry Tunsill, and Joey Bosa.
Myles Jack's leg is fine.
Kenneth Dixon or Paul Perkins will be the second most productive running back in this draft class.
At least one undrafted running back will stun the league in the preseason, just like Zach Zenner did last season.
Paxton Lynch? Best quarterback in this year's class.
The Lions may not take a WR in the first round.
The Cincinnati Bengals actually draft for need with their first two picks.
Jared Goff will likely be the first overall pick. Eagles may go with Wentz, but expect the unexpected.
Dallas could come up into the end of the first round with a second pick for Paxton Lynch depending on where he falls, per rumors.
Not so much a prediction but a fact. Reggie Ragland's aorta should be fine. He'll require yearly monitoring, but it's not a major issue.
