2016 NFL Mock Draft: Chargers take Buckner, Elliott tumbles to Bears

The “big” story of the 2016 draft should be defensive tackle, as this class offers extraordinary talent and depth at the position.

It is because of that depth, however, that many clubs will opt to wait on defensive tackles, instead focusing on positions lacking quality in the later rounds — like quarterback, receiver and cornerback — prompting mini runs at these positions and possibly several trades. Trades, while inevitable, are not projected in this mock draft.

With mere hours until the kickoff of the draft, here is my final projection of how the first 31 selections will shake out.

1. Los Angeles Rams: Jared Goff, QB, California
With explosive weapons Todd Gurley and Tavon Austin already in place on offense and the NFL’s most ferocious defensive line, the Rams are only an improved passing game away from competing in the NFC West, finishing 4-2 in the division a year ago, including 2-0 against the Seattle Seahawks and 1-1 against the defending divisional champion Arizona Cardinals. Goff may lack the ideal build of an NFL quarterback at a relatively slim 6-4, 215 pound but he possesses terrific awareness, anticipation and accuracy — the three most important traits for success at the next level. Further, the California native offers the regional appeal to excite the “new” fan base in L.A.

2. Philadelphia
