Best Player in the 2016 NFL Draft is ...

Both the Rams and Eagles traded up so they will be picking first and second in the NFL draft this year. Unless something unforeseen happens, I doubt either team selects the best player in the draft. I have St. Louis and Philadelphia each taking a quarterback with the Rams going for Jared Goff and the Eagles selecting Carson Wentz. Neither of those players is among the top two players in my view.

I rate Mississippi offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott as the two best players in the draft. Tunsil could be in the Jonathan Ogden/Orlando Pace left tackle Hall of Fame category. Elliott is the most well-rounded, flawless running back prospect since Adrian Peterson. It wouldn't be out of the question for a team to come up and trade with San Diego to get the third pick in order to grab Tunsil or Elliott. That would be far less of a gamble than going for Goff or Wentz, quarterback-league or no quarterback-league.
