The Daly Dose 2016 NFL Mockery Draft

It’s that time of year again where we act like we know which players are going to be selected in the NFL Draft! And then we act like we know how those picks will do. And then we act like we know how the teams will do in the upcoming season. And then we are proven miserably wrong.

Don’t act like I’m the only one.

Mockery

1. Los Angeles Rams

The Rams were looking for a splashy move to get them out of the funk they’ve been in. Over the past four seasons they have finished 7-9, 6-10, 7-9, and 7-8-1. So they moved to LA and traded up to draft a shiny new QB. Goff should be able to help the Rams reach 8-8 in just a few seasons.

Pick: Jared Goff, QB, Cal

 

 

2. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles traded away four draft picks to move into the No. 2 spot, and draft a new quarterback, which reportedly infuriated current quarterback Sam Bradford. He has now thrown a temper tantrum and asked to be traded. And probably hurt himself again in the process.

Pick: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

 

 

3. San Diego Chargers

The Chargers need some help on the defensive side of the ball and Bosa should help right away. This might not make QB Philip Rivers happy, after being sacked 40 times in 2015, but at least Bosa won’t be sacking him.

Pick: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State

 

 

4. Dallas Cowboys

Ramsey played both cornerback and safety at FSU and will need to become more polished to be worth this high of a pick. But he was very impressive at the NFL Combine, and we all know that Jerry Jones likes shiny things, no matter if they make sense or not.

Pick: Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State

 

 

5. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags are quietly building a solid team which is nice, because when they end up moving to London the Brits are going to get a decent team to watch, while they sip their tea.

Pick: Myles Jack, OLB, UCLA

 

 

6. Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore was one of the most injured teams in 2015. They lost OLB Terrell Suggs to a torn Achilles. Chris Canty was out with a torn pectoral muscle. RB Justin Forsett broke his arm. And QB Joe Flacco severely sprained his unibrow.

Pick: DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon

 

 

7. San Francisco 49ers

The Niners were really hoping to get Goff, but just as Colin Kaepernick is learning, you don’t always get what you want.

Pick: Laremy Tunsill, OT, Ole Miss

 

 

8. Cleveland Browns

The Browns got a great deal by trading the No. 2 pick to the Eagles, and picking up four picks in return. Of course, it is the Browns. So these picks are pretty much guaranteed to do nothing. Except illegal substances.

Pick: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

 

 

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa needs help literally everywhere on the defensive side of the ball after allowing nearly 27 points per game in 2015. Hargreaves gives them a talented young corner. Now they just need ten other guys.

Pick: Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida

 

 

10. New York Giants

Peyton’s little brother needs a better offensive line. And the Giants are going to have some adjustments to make after the firing of head coach Tom Couglin. Like how dinner will no longer be served at 3:00 p.m.

Pick: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame

 

 

11. Chicago Bears

John Fox is starting to put together a team that is capable of making the playoffs. Of course, it is John Fox, so they will lose once they get there.

Pick: Leonard Floyd, LB, Georgia

 

 

12. New Orleans Saints

The Saints have to get better defensively. Because it is scientifically impossible for them to be any worse.

Pick: A’Shawn Robinson, DL, Alabama

 

 

13. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins will get better on the defensive front, and they will hope that no one notices that quarterback Ryan Tannehill is not nearly as good as his wife looks.

Pick: Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson

 

 

14. Oakland Raiders

If the Raiders can shore up their secondary they could have an outside shot of making the playoffs for the first time since 2002. No really. I’m serious. Stop laughing.

Pick: William Jackson III, CB, Houston

 

 

15. Tennessee Titans

The Titans trade down and try to get some more personality for what is easily the most boring team in the NFL. So they draft an offensive lineman out of Michigan State. Let the ticker-tape parade begin.

Pick: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

 

 

16. Detroit Lions

The Lions must look to beef up their defensive line. And they also need to get off to a better start than they did in 2015, when they lost their first five games of the season.  Of course the Lions went 0-16 in 2008, so five games were a picnic to Detroit fans.

Pick: Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville

 

 

17. Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta started 2015 with a 6-1 record, and proclaimed to the world that their defense was fixed. But then they had to actually play teams outside of the NFC East, and realized that their defense was every bit as awful as we thought it would be.

Pick: Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State

 

 

18. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are saying that they will take the top player in the draft regardless of position, but if they can’t protect Andrew Luck than this team is still going to be uglier than Luck’s beard.

Pick: Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State

 

 

19. Buffalo Bills

Rex Ryan ends his pre-draft meeting with the controversial statement “Let’s go draft a g-dd–mned Shaq.”

Pick: Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson

 

 

20. NY Jets

The Jets could probably use an offensive lineman here, but let’s be honest who are they going to be protecting? Geno Smith? So nevermind.

Pick: Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama

 

 

21. Washington Redskins

Washington fans are looking forward to another playoff run after scraping their way into the postseason last year. Fortunately, people in the D.C. area are used to unfulfilled expectations.

Pick: Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama

 

 

22. Houston Texans

The Texans grab a talented wide receiver for new quarterback Brock Osweiler who signed via free agency. Osweiler is sure to become yet another great QB in Texans history…just like David Carr and Matt Schaub.

Pick: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU

 

 

23. Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings pick up a deep threat wide receiver here, but only because drafting a kicker in the first round would seem ridiculous.

Pick: Laquan Treadwell, WR, Mississippi

 

 

24. Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals will draft Will Fuller from Notre Dame and look to immediately corrupt him into their twisted cult of evil and stupid penalties.

Pick: Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame

 

 

25. Pittsburgh Steelers

Early last season the Steelers defense looked like it was going to be fine after the losing defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. But then they found out that they couldn’t play the Browns every week.

Pick: Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State

 

 

26. Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks need to replace the loss of Brandon Mebane and Chris Jones is used to playing in a stadium full of clanging cowbells at Mississippi State. So playing in another stadium of manufactured noise should be a good fit.

Pick: Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State

 

 

27. Green Bay Packers

BJ Raji is taking the year off and Mike Pennel is suspended for the first four games, so the Packers look to pick up another 300 pounder. At least until Eddie Lacy gets back to eating cheese curds 12 times a day.

Pick: Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor

 

 

28. Kansas City Chiefs

With the Justin Houston injury the Chiefs are forced to grab another pass rusher, but unless he can take over the clock management duties from Andy Reid late in games, then does it really matter?

Pick: Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky

 

 

29. New England Patriots

The Patriots forfeit this pick due to “deflate-gate”. And now Tom Brady is suspended too. Just wanted to remind Patriot fans in case they forgot.

Pick: Forfeited pick

 

 

30. Arizona Cardinals

The Cards pick up a safety here and then Carson Palmer will also throw the ball to a safety in the Cardinals playoff game. And a cornerback. And a linebacker.

Pick: TJ Green, FS, Clemson

 

 

31. Carolina Panthers

It isn’t that the Panthers really need another tackle, but Cam Newton is still seeing Von Miller in his nightmares. And it’s starting to interfere with his daily dab routine.

Pick: Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana

 

 

32. Denver Broncos

Robert Nkemdiche is a talented player, but he did have a pretty serious off the field incident, while under the influence of marijuana. So he needs to go to a place where his access to pot is limited.

Pick: Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss

Pablo Sandoval’s shoulder: “I’m less swollen then the rest of him”

Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval traveled to Pensacola, Florida, to get a second opinion on his sore left shoulder.

But according to Red Sox manager John Farrell there is just too much residual swelling to get a good evaluation.

Sandoval received a cortisone shot and will be looked at again in two weeks.

But according to his left shoulder it isn’t the only problem.

“Look man, I’m not saying that I’m not sore but let me ask you something…how would you feel if you had this dude laying on you every night?” asked Sandoval’s left shoulder on Tuesday.

Fat-Pablo-Sandoval

“They got this cat listed at 255 pounds…let me tell you…I’ve seen the scale, and it spins three times before it even slows down.” it continued.

Sandoval signed a five-year deal worth $95 million dollars prior to last season but then had the worst season of his career. He hit just .245 with only 10 homers and the club began wondering if some of his problems went back to his extra weight.

The Red Sox have placed Sandoval on the disabled list with a “left shoulder strain” last week, but they aren’t exactly sure when the injury took place.

“Strain? They listed me as strained?” asked the shoulder. “This guy fell asleep on me after knocking out 14 Big Macs! So yeah, I’m strained. Strained like the Coyote was strained when a piano fell on him in the Roadrunner cartoons. Ohhhh….mannn…is that cortisone? Oh I love cortisone. We should go to McDonalds again.”

Johnny Manziel too stoned to know where he lives

On Saturday, Johnny Manziel stated that he was living with Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.

“I’m living out here with my guy, Von Miller. Everybody knows Von Miller. Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller, my brother. I’m living with him right now,” Manziel told TMZ on Saturday night. “We’re getting our lives together, bro.”

manziel

On Monday afternoon, Miller tweeted out that Manziel is his “brother”, but is not actually staying with him.

It turns out that Manziel is instead living with suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon.

Also on Monday, it was announced that Gordon has failed yet another drug test, after testing positive for a drug dilute that is used to mask drug usage.

The duo is apparently living in Hollywood off of Sunset Boulevard.

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with partying, bro,” Manziel explained. “There’s a difference between partying and being out of control. And also, have you ever noticed that 4:20 pm comes at the same time every day?”

The Daly Dose has been informed that the Manziel/Gordon home is furnished with pillows full of heroin and beanbags full of crack rocks.

We were also able to track down Gordon, who was found sitting at a stop sign in his camouflage-colored Porsche, waiting for for the sign to turn green.

When asked if he was in any condition to be driving he shouted “Are you a cocaine?!?!”

Scientists confirm link between dabbing, losing big games

Scientists at the University of Denver have confirmed that sports teams who celebrate by “dabbing” tend to lose the biggest games.

Dabbing is a dance in which the dancer simultaneously drops the head while raising an arm and the elbow.

But according to DU scientist Lawrence Paul, it has proven to guarantee a loss for the team who participates in the now tired trend.

“We tested teams from across the country. We watched a ton of film. Many of them would make a big play and then they would dab. Those teams invariably would lose the most important games.” Paul said.

Could there be any other explanations for the failures in big games?

Paul responded. “Well it does help to be from the state of North Carolina. That state seems to be a sports factory of sadness, but we have seen other failures that come from different states. Ohio immediately comes to mind.”

“This isn’t a coincidence. These teams keep doing this hideous celebration and it is rubbing off on the youth of America, inspiring a new generation of losers. This is like Tebowing but somehow less cool.”
