2016-nfl-mock-draft

For this 2016 NFL mock draft, the order is randomized. It’s kind of based on the order this season and what I have picked to each team in my 2015 NFL mock draft. Team needs were sort of taken into accounts for the mock draft; at times.

It’s the second edition of our 2016 NFL mock draft, so enjoy! Be sure to check out our 2015 NFL mock draft, our 2015 NBA mock draft and 2016 NBA mock draft.

Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” presented his “New Rules for Real Sports” in the closing segment of the Tuesday, Feb. 24 edition of “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.” That previous sentence might have set a new world’s record for use of the word “real” density.

Maher took on the NFL, a very common place punching bag these days. (As well it should be because NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is terrible at crisis management.

Todd McShay sizes up the San Diego Chargers draft


san-diego-chargers-season-preview-cheerleader

As the San Diego Chargers progress forward with an uncertain future, hopefully they make the right call and stay home. It would be a huge mistake for the Bolts to follow through on that Carson stadium share with the Oakland Raidders. That’s a more macro level San Diego Chargers question.

How about a more micro level San Diego Chargers question? What do they do at #17 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft?

kc-chiefs

This past weekend Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce partook in a dance-off against the Professional Bull-Riding’s Fan of the Night. This was at something called the 2015 PBR BFTS Caterpillar Classic in Kansas City. Yes, I know that sentence has a whole lot of acronym alphabet soup in there, and no, I have no clue what most of the words meant.

Oakland Raiders: going back to L.A. is a huge mistake


oakland-raiders-jim harbaugh

 

Both the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders plan a shared stadium near L.A. in case their hometown venue deals don’t end up working out. If they can’t get their new stadiums, then the Chargers and Raiders will move forward on this plan to build a privately financed, $1.7-billion stadium in Carson, California, near Los Angeles.

Oakland Raiders had a solid draft, can they do it again?


oakland-raiders-jim harbaugh

(UPDATE: Raiders and Chargers to possibly share a stadium in L.A. area if hometown stadium deals don’t work out) 

Yet another rough season for the Oakland Raiders. That’s become all too common for this once proud franchise. It’s been lean lately; like Keira Knightley on ephredra lean. If there was a NFL version of the NBA Draft Lottery; the Raiders would be like the Milwaukee Bucks- seemingly there every year.

They’re back at #4 this April, but this time there’s a bright side. They made the right call in hiring Jack Del Rio. It would have been disastrous is they had hired Pat Shurmur.

The latest Raiders draft class last year provided building blocks. Maybe you have the signal caller of the future now in Derek Carr, Maybe? And then you pair him with a wide-out?

ibraheim-campbell

Without a doubt, the Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to upgrade their secondary this offseason. Expect them to draft a defensive back or two come April. As the NFL Scouting Combine begins this week, NFL Network Analyst Mike Mayock conducted a media conference call. Of all the safety prospects that Mayock discussed, this soundbite was the most memorable:

“Ibraheim Campbell from Northwestern, a smart tough kid. Probably a fourth round pick, I like him.”

The headline here pretty much says it all: Michael Irvin dancing in a pink tutu is indeed Michael Irvin dancing ballet in a pink tutu. Like Homer J. Simpson’s thoughts during the Springfield Film Festival: “but the football in the groin movie had a a guy getting hit in the groin by a football.”

We love #88; the NFL Network Analyst gave us a couple of exclusive interviews for our podcast: you can check them out here and here, so we’re going to reciprocate the favor by plugging his next project.
