2016 NFL mock draft 9-9-15

In this 2016 NFL mock draft, the order is randomized. When new, legitimate 2015 NFL power rankings are released, we’ll revise our order accordingly. The 2015 Draft and team needs were loosely taken into account. Remember, team needs will change about ten zillion times between now and the 2016 draft. Also, I remember, I beat Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN and Mike Mayock of NFL Network...

All the “THIS is the Year for Jay Cutler” pieces were written in 2013 and 2014. All the “This is...
