With the 2015 draft coming to an end I am sure many of you are already wondering who the top prospects for 2016 might be. Trying to predict not only the top prospects, but also the draft order is tall order right now, but I am willing if you are . My 2016 First Mock saw 7 of my top 32 go in the top 10, but only 13 out of 32 players went in the first round for a variety of reasons.7 went in the second round,4 in the third,3 in the fourth, 1 in the sixth,1 in the seventh,1 of them stayed in school, one was retired for medical reasons, and one went completely un-drafted due to character concerns. So keep that in mind because some of these guys will get hurt, play to avoid injury & disappoint, decide to stay in school, maybe even be kicked off the team, or just not play up to my expectations for a whole . Not to mention the teams may play better or worse for a whole lot of reasons themselves. Plus early entries are hard to predict , and even though 30 of them went un-drafted in 2016 , plenty of guys will come out earlier than expected.I have done limited tape study on these prospects so far, and they are mostly guys I couldn't help noticing while watching others on tape this year, or guys I expected to enter the 2015 draft that didn't. Some are just really talented ,and I expect them to step up this year as well. Right now I see a draft deep in running back & offensive tackle on offense , and edge rushers and DB's on defense if the players I expect to enter the draft come out, Deshaun Watson is the most well known QB, and I hope he steps up enough to be the #1 pick, but I expect others will challenge him for the top QB spot . So here it is. Enjoy.
