Vance’s Mock Draft

2 of 7

6. St Louis Rams: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma St-The trade with the Redskins works out perfectly, as the WR they need falls in their lap. He’s big and strong as well as athletic, and instantly becomes the Rams best receiver.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame-It’s expected that the Jags will draft a defensive end, and they need one, but Blaine Gabbert also needs some help to succeed or there may be a new GM soon.

8. Miami Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M-The Dolphins weren’t able to get a QB in free agency, and will take one here. He’s a bit of a project, but has the size and ability to be good if given time to learn.

9. Carolina Panthers: Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi St-Cox is the best of the available defensive tackles, and gives the Panthers a pass rusher from the interior. Cam Newton can score, but they need to stop other teams from scoring more.

10. Buffalo Bills: Riley Reiff, T, Iowa-The Bills need to shore up the offensive line now that they addressed the D-line in free agency. Reiff follows a long list of linemen from Iowa and should be another solid one.
