2016-nfl-mock-draft

This 2016 NFL mock draft order is now set for every single pick. Ohio State had nine underclassmen declare for the NFL Draft. That’s almost the ten underclassmen that we saw leave early at LSU two years ago. So, if this 2016 NFL mock draft is heavy on the Buckeyes, that’s why. This is where their 2014 National Title team goes pro.

With the Super Bowl over, it’s now officially the offseason. Which means Happy NFL Draft speculation season!

They could have both just stayed in the Valley of the Sun and avoided some of this harsh Midwestern winter. Both Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly will serve as pregame analysts for ESPN tomorrow night for the National Championship game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Meyer and Kelly are reuniting at the home of the Arizona Cardinals just 10 days after Meyer’s Buckeyes defeated Kelly’s Fighting Irish 44-28 in the Fiesta Bowl.

Ohio State basketball building towards NCAA tourney resume now

ohio-state-basketball

Ohio State basketball is starting to get it together right at the same time that more people start to pay attention. You can easily make a case that college basketball should be a one semester sport, or at the very least move the season tip-off way back. A lot of people don’t pay attention to college hoops until the conference season commences in late December/early January.

There’s just too much to compete with when you’re going against the holidays and football season. College sports are kind of cannibalizing themselves in November and December with the overlap season too.

Ohio State football had nine underclassmen declare for the NFL Draft! Nine! That’s almost the ten underclassmen that we saw leave early at LSU two years ago.

So, if this 2016 NFL mock draft is heavy on the Buckeyes, that’s why. This is where their 2014 National Title team goes pro. You could say that Columbus is the new Tuscaloosa in that regard. To see where we have all these Buckeyes slotted in our 2016 NFL mock draft, go here. 2016 brings a lot of turnover, A LOT. Almost everybody that mattered on the 2014 National Championship team, with the exception of J.T. Barrett, is now gone. However, this is Urban Meyer, and this is Ohio State football.

Fiesta Bowl: 6 likely 2016 NFL 1st round picks to watch

fiesta-bowl

Wait, “Battlefrog” Fiesta Bowl? What on Earth is Battlefrog? Is that like the “Duck Commander Independence Bowl?” What happened to “this is for all the Tostitos?”

Also, that was really bold of Brent Musburger by the way, doing sponsored content while calling a Field Goal Attempt. That call, and Fiesta Bowl game was actually long before most of us knew what the words “sponsored content” and “native advertising” actually meant.

Moving on…

2016 NFL mock draft 12-8-15

joey-bosa--ohio-state-football

This 2016 NFL mock draft order is loosely based off the order derived at SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule into account. We then made a few changes based on how current injuries could impact the team and their final season record.

Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account. We played fast and loose with that because it’s still quite early. So many of these picks are “Best player available.”
