    7 Round Mock Draft (2016)

    by Matt Richner, NFL Draft Expert and Paul Bessire, CEO, PredictionMachine.com
    Last Updated: 5/1/2016 1:00 PM ET



    NFL Draft Expert Matt Richner, who has worked and continues to work with several NFL front offices and PredictionMachine.com CEO Paul Bessire took the reins of all 32 teams in the 2016 NFL Draft to create this full, seven round "objective draft." With a complete evaluation of teams' strengths and weaknesses as well as an analysis of every player's talent, this "mock" draft represents what each organization SHOULD do in the 2016 NFL Draft. It is not at all related to any expectation as to what teams will do in this week's draft.

    Focusing solely on verifiable, objective information about each player and ignoring what pundits think will actually happen with each pick, each draft selection below finds the ideal fit at each pick based upon the following: team needs, previous and future picks, ability to tolerate risk, players' strengths, weaknesses, ceilings and floors, offensive and defensive scheme assignments and players' relevant talent levels. For example, due to an elite roster with few weaknesses and a large quantity of picks in the 2016 draft, Green Bay can assume risk and, thus, take chances on players with high ceilings that may have red flags elsewhere, whereas teams like Atlanta are in the opposite position.

    For clarity, Matt ran the draft boards for the Rams, Eagles, Chargers, Cowboys, Jaguars, Ravens, 49ers, Browns, Buccaneers, Giants, Bears, Saints, Dolphins, Raiders, Titans and Lions. Paul did the rest. This process was completed over three days, but could have been done in less than three minutes with the new and improved NFL Draft Machine.

    Based on these results and the NFL Draft Machine analysis, the top five classes are: 1) Packers 2) Titans 3) Bills 4) Texans and 5) Redskins. Not too surprisingly (at least with the bottom two), the bottom five classes are: 32) Rams 31) Eagles 30) Giants 29) Raiders and 28) Cardinals. The teams with the most projected wins added from the draft class are: 1) Dolphins 2) Redskins 3) Giants 4) Titans and 5) Bills. No team in this mock draft fails to add a starter for 2016.
