Before last year's draft, we had NFL Nation reporters play general manager for the team they cover and project a first-round mock draft.
Now they're back playing GM again, this time re-drafting the first round of the 2016 draft. A few notes before we get started:
The draft order is from before the draft started, so we're not taking into account any draft-day trades.
Trades that took place before draft day are accounted for.
The Patriots forfeited their first-round pick due to Deflategate punishment.
Now, to the re-draft, starting with a new quarterback at No. 1 ...
1. Los Angeles Rams (from Titans)
Re-draft pick: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
Actual pick: Jared Goff, QB, Cal
The Rams went into the 2016 draft in desperate need of a franchise quarterback, but the ideal candidate might have been the guy taken in the fourth round. With the Cowboys, Prescott benefited from a dominant offensive line, a dynamic running back in Ezekiel Elliott and an impressive collection of pass-catchers. But he also showed great poise, accuracy, athleticism and decision-making ability. -- Alden Gonzalez
