McShay's 2016 NFL Mock Draft 5.0: Trades shake up Round 1

It's all but assured that Carson Wentz and Jared Goff will go in the top two picks of the upcoming NFL draft. ESPN Illustration

We're officially seven days from Round 1 of the draft. With two major trades going down since my last mock draft, there has been quite the shake-up in the top half of the first round.

So it's the perfect time to run through how I see the picks 1-31 playing out. As a reminder: This is my prediction of what will happen, not how I'd make the picks if I were the GM for each team.

Let's dive into my projections before another blockbuster deal throws everything into a tailspin.


1. Los Angeles Rams*

Jared Goff, QB, Cal

After making the move from No. 15 all the way up to No. 1, it seems the worst-kept secret in the world that L.A. is going to pick Goff. The Rams are an ideal landing spot for the Cal product. With a great defense and run-first offense, Goff won't be asked to carry the team from day one.

2. Philadelphia Eagles*

Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

The Eagles traded up from No. 8 to No. 2 with the goal of getting whichever quarterback Los Angeles passes on. All signs point to that being Wentz. Big, strong and athletic, he'll face a steep learning curve coming from the FCS, but he has a high ceiling if developed properly. Pairing him with QB guru Doug Pederson would be a great fit.
