"2016 NFL Mock Draft - Andrew Billings"

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

32. Cleveland Browns – Josh Doctson, WR, TCU

Ray Farmer is gone if this pick happens.

33. Tennessee Titans – Jeremy Cash, S, Duke

Cash could be a first round safety in my book so great get for the Titans.

34. San Diego Chargers – Tyler Boyd, WR, Pitt

The Chargers need to find a running mate with Keenan Allen. Boyd gives them a big target to pair with Allen and Philip Rivers.

35. Dallas Cowboys – Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor

This is the steal of the draft. Billings is a top 15 player for me, so getting him at 35 is great value at a position of need.

36. San Francisco 49ers – Germain Ifedi, OT, Texas A&M

Ifedi didn’t help himself this year (so-so for much of the year) but he’s a solid pick at a position of need for the Niners.

37. Baltimore Ravens – Jonathan Bullard, DE, Florida

I don’t know about the position but Ozzie Newsome sniffs out the steal.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars – Vonn Bell, S, Ohio State

Jacksonville gets the secondary help they need in the 2nd. Bell gives them a legit playmaker at the safety spot.

39. New Orleans Saints – Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee

I’m a bit confused by the lack of buzz around Sutton…maybe there’s a sense he won’t enter the draft but this kid’s got the skills to be a nice CB in the league.

40. Chicago Bears – William Jackson III, CB, Houston

I’m a huge WJIII fan…great get for the Bears.

41. Detroit Lions – Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama

The Lions beef up on the DL. Buckner and Reed are day one starters and instantly make this defense better.

42. Miami Dolphins – Su’a Cravens, LB, USC

The Dolphins just got a whole lot better on D if the draft plays out this way. VHIII and Cravens gives them the type of athletes they need.

43. New York Giants – Jonathan Allen, DE, Alabama

DE could be their biggest need and they get a good one down this far.

44. Oakland Raiders – Darron Lee, LB, Ohio State

Down year for Lee but the talent is there for him to emerge on this defense.

45. St. Louis Rams – Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

The Rams gambled in R1 by not taking a QB and it pays off with their pick of Wentz and Hackenberg. I’m not high on Hack, so this should be a no-brainer.

46. Buffalo Bills – Denver Kirkland, OT, Arkansas

The Bills need help at RT. Kirkland may be best suited inside but he could give it a go at RT early on.

47. Indianapolis Colts – Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

Fuller has to be better against the run and clean up his technique at the LOS before I can put him anywhere near R1.

48. St. Louis Rams – Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State

The extra pick in R2 allows the Rams to take a shot on Miller, who is just learning the position.

49. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Shilique Calhoun, DE, Michigan State

This about right for Calhoun in my books. Great fit as well.

50. Atlanta Falcons – Jayron Kearse, S, Clemson

Will teams be intrigued enough by Kearse’s freakish size to take a 6’5” safety before this point?

51. New York Jets – Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State

I hope for Hackenberg’s sake he doesn’t have to go in day one.

52. Houston Texans – Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech

Butler is good…that’s all.

53. Washington – Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State

A nice draft for Washington with Treadwell and Johnson.

54. Pittsburgh Steelers – Keanu Neal, S, Florida 

Expect to hear more about Neal if he opts to enter the draft…he could be a top of R2 kid.

55. Kansas City Chiefs – Adolphus Washington, DE, Ohio State

His arrest won’t help but he’s played at a high level for the past two years.

56. Seattle Seahawks – Vadal Alexander, OG, LSU

Back-to-back on the OL. Not likely but I couldn’t resist the value pick here.

57. Minnesota Vikings – Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville

He was in Dane Brugler’s R1. Good player and I think this is a little low for him.

58. Denver Broncos – Joshua Garnett, OG, Stanford

Kid is solid and Elway goes to the well at Stanford to find OL help.

59. Green Bay Packers – Kamalei Correa, OLB, Boise State

Correa had a monster sophomore season. The numbers weren’t the same in 2015 but he stills brings it off the edge. Hunter Henry is intriguing here but better value with a pass rusher here.

IDAHO STATESMAN: Correa to enter the 2016 NFL Draft

60. Cincinnati Bengals – Maliek Collins, DT, Nebraska

Another great value for the Bengals. Collins flashes on tape…needs work but this could be a great situation for him to develop as Geno Atkins understudy.

61. Arizona Cardinals – Nate Sudfeld, QB, Indiana

One of my personal favorites going to a perfect scenario. He can sit behind Carson Palmer for a year or two.

62. New England Patriots – Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina

Love this fit for both parties.

63. Carolina Panthers – Sterling Shepard, WR, Oklahoma

Carolina has done alright for themselves at the position without Kelvin Benjamin but Shepard is the real deal.

    Great Mock. A lot of players not on most mock’s right now that I can see moving up. For Lions DeForrest Buckner is one of my favorite players for them.,..especially since I can see them selecting 10-13th with another win. Possibly 2. Having him play strong side and move inside as well would be Austin’s (If he is still here) dream player.
    Some might say over kill but I am not one with Jarran Reed. I love the large run stuffing DT in Round 2. We are weak in the middle and that is never good. Reed and Buckner would go a large way in respectability. Pharoh Cooper I was dreaming would fall to Lions in Round 3 or 4 but I was dreaming probably.
    Calhoun could not argue with mid 2nd to late 2nd for his range right now. Conklin I will wait until after Alabama to comment. I think he is under rated. and can stay at LT in the same way that Roos, Whitehurst, Tait all stayed at LT…with physical play, intelligence, and great leverage and proper technique. He is not an elite athlete but is tall, long armed, and experienced. We will see how he plays verse the best as he does not get that in the Big Ten this season…but did do well verse Bosa when they lined up.

      Thanks Reggie…I was a little worried about doubling up on the DL but the value was too good. When I watch the Lions I see a lack of strength in the middle. Pairing Reed, Buckner and Ansah gives them a lot of versatility. I just finished watching Cooper as I was posting this last night…think I may be a little low on him.

      I plan on going back to focus on Conklin. I’ve watched so many live MSU games/practices but haven’t fully focused on him. I’ll wait for the Alabama contest because that will be great tape to evaluate. He definitely got the best of Bosa in their 1:1 matchups

        I will do same with Conklin. I did so with purpose over Ohio State, Penn State, and Iowa and was impressed. You never notice him due to him doing his job. Alabama will be the defining game for him. No problem doubling up as long as it is players of that talent level. We need it
