16 Bold Predictions of the 2016 NFL Draft
For this list, I will be making 16 early predictions for draft day and the players in this draft class. This may include stat leaders, Super Bowl victories, and other predictions. Anything is possible once these players begin their careers in the NFL. We have seen many first round busts and several late-round selections that turn into All-Pro players. It will be fun to look back at my predictions in the future and see how accurate I am! Let’s begin!
1.) Paxton Lynch will finish with more career yards/touchdowns than Carson Wentz or Jared Goff.
2.) Jaylon Smith will get drafted by the New England Patriots.
3.) Kevin Dodd will lead all rookies in sacks next season.
4.) Ezekiel Elliott will rush for 1500+ yards in his rookie season.
5.) Christian Hackenberg will be a surprise first round selection tonight in Chicago.
6.) Although he has off-the-field issues, Robert Nkemdiche will still be a first round pick.
7.) Corey Coleman will be a Pro Bowl receiver next season.
8.) The Chicago Bears will trade up for DeForest Buckner.
9.) Joey Bosa will fall in the top 10 in comparison to Leonard Williams last year.
