The month of June has been wild in the sports world, so I decided to leave my thoughts and reactions on numerous topics.

2016 NFL Mock Draft 5.0 (4-28-16)
After a long three months of the offseason, the 2016 NFL Draft has arrived. For my final edition of mock drafts, I will include the second round of selections. Wow, hasn’t it been a crazy month of April? We had the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles trade up for the first and second overall picks, respectively. Assuming they both take quarterbacks, which will wind up going number one? Will we see another trade in the top 10 during the draft? Well, without waiting any longer, let’s dive into my final mock draft of the offseason. It has been a lot of fun leading up to this day and I hope you enjoy my mock!

Discussion of the Top 10
1.) Los Angeles Rams (from Tennessee)
The Pick: Jared Goff, QB, California
Discussion: While trading up to number one, it has been obvious that Goff would go number one. Making the move to Los Angeles, the Rams start fresh with a quarterback from the area.
2.) Philadelphia Eagles (from Cleveland)
The Pick: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State
Discussion: The Eagles rolled the dice and will take FCS quarterback Carson Wentz. Although recently signing Sam Bradford, Wentz will compete and be the future of an Eagles team that is desperate for a quarterback.
3.) San Diego Chargers
The Pick: Jalen Ramsey, S, Florida State
Discussion: Jalen Ramsey is the best player in the draft. With more issues with Laremy Tunsil, the Charges make this a quick selection.
4.) Dallas Cowboys
The Pick: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State
Discussion: The Cowboys are in an interesting spot. If Ramsey is there, they will pick him. If not, it will be Elliott. If Zeke gets an opportunity behind the Dallas offensive line with Tony Romo returning at quarterback, he may push for 2000.
5.) Jacksonville Jaguars
The Pick: DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon
Discussion: DeForest Buckner is one of the most explosive players in the draft. He will cause havoc all over the defensive line that will help a struggling Jacksonville defense.
6.) Tennessee Titans (from Baltimore)
The Pick: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss
Discussion: The first trade of draft day. Tennessee trades back up with Baltimore to select the player they initially wanted. If this trade occurs, it may be one of the best moves in recent years.
7.) San Francisco 49ers
The Pick: Leonard Floyd, OLB, Georgia
Discussion: San Francisco needs help on the defensive front. Leonard Floyd is a player that will compete day one and put pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
8.) Cleveland Browns (from Philadelphia)
The Pick: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State
Discussion: I think Joey Bosa will drop in the first one. It may seem shocking, but we saw the same scenario last year with Leonard Williams. Bosa is a good player that will definitely improve the Browns defense.
9.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Pick: Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson
Discussion: After a dominating college football season, Shaq Lawson deserves to be a top 10 selection. Tampa Bay needs help on the defensive line to pair alongside Gerald McCoy.
10.) New York Giants
The Pick: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame
Discussion: To round out the top 10, the Giants select arguably the best tackle in the draft. Eli Manning needs serious help and the entire offense will benefit with Stanley’s presence.
APRIL FOOLS!!! I hope everyone is having fun on this day. Since it is draft season, it is only fitting that we make an April Fools Mock Draft to have a little fun. While all of these picks are very unlikely, it doesn’t hurt to play around on this holiday. I hope everyone enjoys our first ever April Fools Mock Draft! Tennessee, you are on the clock!!!!
1. Tennessee Titans: Oilers, Name, Houston
The titans elect to bring back their old name of the Oilers. They also contemplate of moving back to Houston. What does Tennessee have to offer?
2. Cleveland Browns: LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
The Browns decide it is time to finally bring LeBron into the NFL. Can The King bring a title to his city in a different sport?
3. San Diego Chargers: Los Angeles, City, LA
The Chargers draft the city of Los Angeles. They feel it is time to make the switch and make good use of this draft pick.
4. Dallas Cowboys: Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings
Everyone in the NFL wants to see it: the best RB with the best line. Can AP surpass 2,500 yards?
5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State
Finally, the first rookie off the board. The Jaguars benefit in a major way with the best player dropping all the way to number 5.
6. Baltimore Ravens: Ray Lewis, LB, Retirement Home
The Ravens bring back one of the best LBs to play the game. Can the NFL rig another Super Bowl win for the city of Baltimore?
7. San Francisco 49ers: 2012 Roster, Every position, United States
What happened to the Niners? Their stacked team from the 2012 NFC Champions literally disappeared. Can they rebound in 2016 with their team back?
8. Philadelphia Eagles: DeMarco Murray, RB, Tennessee Titans
The Eagles decide to give it one more go with Murray as their RB. I mean, why wouldn’t they draft a player who previously played for Dallas?
9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State
The Bucs wanted Bosa to fall and got him. Thank God this is one of the crazier drafts.
10: New York Giants: David Tyree, WR, Unknown
The Giants feel it is time to bring back a player who made one of the best catches in the history of football. With Tyree back, OBJ will finally not be double covered each play.
11. Chicago Bears: Rex Grossman, QB, Free Agents
The Bears make news from drafting a QB that helped them win the NFC Championship almost 10 years ago. Can he beat out Cutler for the starting job?
12. New Orleans Saints: Jimmy Graham, TE, Seattle Seahawks
Drew Brees needs some help from his old friend. Graham is also rumored to play defense as well.
13. Miami Dolphins: 1972 Team Roster, All Positions, Who Knows
This roster could seriously help the Dolphins contend for an AFC East title.
14. Oakland Raiders: Keith Marshall, RB, Georgia
I MEAN HE RAN A 4.31 40 YD DASH!!!!
15. Los Angeles Rams: St. Louis, City, St. Louis
With the Chargers moving to LA, the Rams decide to leave ASAP. Going back to St. Louis seems like the best fit and the fans are overjoyed.
16. Detroit Lions: Calvin Johnson, WR, Retired
Just when Calvin thought he was out, the Lions re-draft him. Time will only tell until he retires again.
17. Atlanta Falcons: Michael Vick, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
With Matt Ryan playing terrible and the rest of the team sucking, the Falcons have no other choice to bring Vick back. I mean he has a 95 speed rating on Madden 04, how could you go wrong with that?
18. Indianapolis Colts: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss
The Colts are so in need to protecting Luck. After 150+ times being sacked in his career, the Colts have no choice.
19. Buffalo Bills: Terry Tate (Office Linebacker), LB, Felcher & Sons
With a need at LB, the Bills will be looking for a stud. With Terry Tate on the board at the end of the first round, he is an easy pick. He has been knocking people around in the office for years and is ready to prove it on the field.
20. New York Jets: Tim Tebow, QB/LB/WR/TE/LT, Houston Texans:
The Jets take Tebow. The team regrets letting Tebow go a few years back, and will use him strictly in the wild cat. Todd Bowles was interviewed after the selection, saying he didn’t get Tebow for the attention, but for the sole purpose of winning football games. (After the camera was shut off, Bowles ran over to quarterback Geno Smith and hugged him.)
21. Washington Redskins: New Name, Nowhere, Unknown
The Redskins elect to get a new name that will be announced later this year.
22. Houston Texans: Jamarcus Russell, QB/LB, KFC/McDonalds
There’s no denying that Houston needs a QB. The Texans roll the dice and pick up former 1st overall pick JaMarcus Russell. Will he redeem himself this time around?
23. Minnesota Vikings: Dallas’s Oline, OL, Dallas Cowboys
After the Cowboys took away AP, the Vikings respond by drafting every lineman on the Cowboys roster. Oh wait, the Vikings don’t have a RB…
24. Cincinnati Bengals: Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals
While Andy Dalton has failed yet again to win in the postseason, the Bengals bring back Carson Palmer. Palmer recently got his first career win in the playoffs and will hope to do the same for his former team.
25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Vernon Hargreaves/Mackenzie Alexander/Eli Apple, CBs, Florida/Clemson/Ohio State
The Steelers make history by drafting 3 players with one pick. Finally, the Steelers will have a secondary and be back in the Super Bowl.
26. Seattle Seahawks: Shaun Alexander, RB, Alabama
After the retirement of Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks bring back legend Shaun Alexander. Will they give HIM the ball at the 1 yard line?
27. Green Bay Packers: Dylan Favre, QB, Cedar Rapids Titans
Just when everyone thought Aaron Rodgers was the best in the NFL, the Packers shock the world and draft the nephew of former QB Brett Favre. Will Dylan pan out and be as good as his uncle?
28.San Diego Chargers: Manti Te’o, LB, San Diego Chargers
TRADE ALERT: Most NFL experts and fans question why the Chargers draft a player already on their roster, but picking him again, this time in the first round, will lock him up for good in the future.
29. Arizona Cardinals: Kurt Warner, QB, Hy-Vee
Athletic player? Tremendous arm? Great footwork? The Cardinals refuse to play mediocre football any longer. Without Palmer any longer, Warner not only will bring them back to the Super Bowl, but will also help to run Hy-Vee out of business. #FarewayForLife
30. Carolina Panthers: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
The Panthers pick the 5 star RB Fournette without any question. Taking a 20 year old running back to replace overrated backs Williams and Stewart will help clear up some cap room to pay Cam 50 million in a couple years. Though LSU is losing the #1 recruit, the Panthers have offered to pay Les Miles 2.3 million over the next 2 years. Miles will use this money to buy Tyrann Mathieu back to school.
31. Denver Broncos: Brett Favre, Offensive Coordinator/QB/LB/Jobless, Southern Miss
With terrible play at QB in the Super Bowl, the Broncos see no reason to bring a legend into their team. Adding Favre, the Broncos would have 3 HOF quarterbacks (Elway, Manning, and Favre). Moving Manning to coach will also boost the team.
32. New England Patriots: Roger Goodell, Owner/GM/Coach/FB, NFL
TRADE ALERT: The Patriots trade up and somehow get the last pick of the 1st round. They also steal NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Will this prevent NE from getting caught cheating the next time?
