2016 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds





Round 4


Posted By Tony Mario Last Updated: April 7, 2016.


  1. Cleveland Browns: Max Tuerk, C, USC

    Max Tuerk is versatile enough to play anywhere on the offensive line at left tackle, left guard, center, right guard, or right tackle. Cleveland gets some depth at center in case Cameron Erving struggles at center now that Alex Mack is gone.


  2. Philadelphia Eagles: Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina

    The Philadelphia Eagles get Pharoh Cooper here. Pharoh Cooper seems like an upgrade over Riley Cooper.


  3. Dallas Cowboys: Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State

    Dallas will get a defensive tackle at some point. Chris Jones is an option in the fourth round.


  4. San Diego Chargers: Tajae Sharpe, WR, Massachusetts

    The Chargers get another wide receiver for depth here. Tajae Sharpe provides terrific value in the fourth round.



  5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jerald Hawkins, RT, LSU

    Jerald Hawkins can sit and learn for a year or two while improving his strength as a backup to Jeremy Parnell. Once Parnell flames out, Hawkins will be done developing and will be ready to start across from Joekel at right tackle.


  6. Baltimore Ravens: Jaylon Smith, 3-4, MLB, Notre Dame

    Baltimore goes after Jaylon Smith who falls to the fourth round due to his injury. Smith makes a comeback and the Ravens get one of the biggest steals in the 2016 NFL Draft.


  7. San Francisco 49ers: Kenny Lawler, WR, California

    San Francisco lost Anquan Boldin. Now the 49ers draft Kenny Lawler and reunite Jared Goff's #1 receiver at California with Goff in San Francisco.


  8. Chicago Bears: Graham Glasglow, C, Michigan

    Chicago needs a center for depth behind Hroniss Grasu. Graham Glasglow is a great depth player for Chicago in the fourth round as he is versatile enough to play left guard, center, or right guard.



  9. Miami Dolphins: Landon Turner, RG, North Carolina

    Miami has Jermon Bushrod starting at right guard. Getting someone like Landon Turner to replace him down the road is necessary as Bushrod lost the left tackle job to Cory Leno who is just awful.


  10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Willie Beavers, LT, Western Michigan

    Tampa Bay can bring someone in to challenge Donovan Smith for the left tackle job. With J.R. Sweezy and Ali Marpet at guard, Tampa Bay can add some depth to the left side of the offensive line at left tackle or left guard with Willie Beavers.


  11. New York Giants: D.J. Foster, WR, Arizona State

    The Giants need a starting running back and a starting wide receiver. The Giants can start Foster as a flex player at both positions.


  12. Los Angeles Rams: Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers

    The Los Angeles Rams take another wide receiver. Leonte Carroo is a steal in the fourth round.



  13. Detroit Lions: Deiondre Hall, CB, Northern Iowa

    Detroit grabs a cornerback for depth. Deiondre Hall tore it up at the 2016 Senior Bowl.


  14. New Orleans Saints: Harlan Miller, CB, Southeastern Louisiana

    New Orleans is expected to start Keenan Lewis and P.J. Williams next season. Damian Swainn just got arrested and I think Harlan Miller can challenge Swainn for a the nickel corner job.


  15. Tennessee Titans: Jacoby Brissett, QB, North Carolina State

    Tennessee needs a reliable backup if Mariota gets injured again. Jacoby Brissett can step in as a backup.


  16. Oakland Raiders: Caleb Benenoch, RT, UCLA

    Oakland gets a right tackle for depth. Caleb Benenoch is a good value pick in the fourth round.



  17. Atlanta Falcons: DeAndre Houston-Carlson, FS, William & Mary

    Atlanta needs a starting free safety. DeAndre Houston-Carlson is a good upgrade here.


  18. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Zettel, 3-4 LE, Penn State

    The Indianapolis Colts draft another player at 5-technique. Anthony Zettel could challenge Henry Anderson for a starting 3-4 left end spot.


  19. Buffalo Bills: Daryl Worley, CB, West Virginia

    The Buffalo Bills get another cornerback for depth to develop. Daryl Worley can start out in the nickel and play boundary across from Ronald Darby in a year from now when Stephon Gilmore becomes a Free Agent.


  20. New York Jets: Dadi Nicholas, 3-4 LOLB, Virginia Tech

    The Jets need another 3-4 outside linebacker next to Lorenzo Mauldin. Dadi Nicholas makes sense here.



  21. Houston Texans: Tyvis Powell, FS, Ohio State

    Tyvis Powell deserves to get drafted by now. The Texans ignored sasfety so Powell goes to the Texans here.


  22. Washington Redskins: Tyler Matakevich, 3-4 MLB, Temple

    Tyler Matakevich would be a great replacement for Keenan Robinson at 3-4 middle linebacker. Washington can add Matakevich as a starter in the fourth round.


  23. Minnesota Vikings: Miles Killebrew, SS, Southern Utah

    Minnesota needs a strong safety. Miles Killebrew can be a depth player at safety with Robert Blanton gone. I think Micahel Griffin will play free safety with Harrison Smith moving to strong safety, but safety depth is needed regardless because Griffin is aging and Smith has durability concerns despite playing at a Pro Bowl level when healthy. I believe Killebrew can play anywhere on secondary at cornerback, strong safety, or free safety.


  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Blake Martinez, MLB, Stanford

    Cincinnati drafts a middle linebacker for depth. Blake Martinez makes total sense here.



  25. Pittsburgh Steelers: Joe Haeg, LT, North Dakota State

    Pittsburgh gets a left tackle here. Joe Haeg may be the FCS version of Matt Light making him a terrific bargain on Day 3.


  26. Seattle Seahawks: Maurice Canady, CB, Virginia

    Seattle brought in Maurice Canady for an individual workout. Canady also had success in the 2016 Senior Bowl and the 2016 NFL Combine before Virginia's Pro Day.


  27. Green Bay Packers: Hassan Ridgeway, NT, Texas

    The Green Bay Packers draft a nose tackle here. If Hassan Ridgeway can adapt from the 4-3 to the 3-4 he will be a successful starter. Texas usually has versatile defensive tackles so I like Ridgeway's odds here.


  28. Kansas City Chiefs: Alex Collins, RB, Arkansas

    Kansas City gets a running back. Alex Collins makes total sense at this point simply because of his value.



  29. Chicago Bears: Jordan Jenkins, 3-4 LOLB, Georgia

    Chicago drafts a 3-4 left outside linebacker for depth. I love the idea of putting Jordan Jenkins on this defense as a developmental pass rusher who can start out as a situational pass rusher and grow into something special.


  30. Arizona Cardinals: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State

    Arizona needs a tight end. Nick Vannett impressed at the 2016 Senior Bowl and at Ohio State's Pro Day so he's clearly fit to start for the Cardinals at tight end.


  31. Carolina Panthers: Victor Ochi, RE, Stony Brook

    Carolina grabs a right end. Victor Ochi is a sleeper that can develop into a future starter.


  32. Baltimore Ravens: Charles Tapper, 3-4 LOLB, Oklahoma

    Baltimore drafts Charles Tapper. Tapper was a 4-3 only player at Oklahoma, but the Ravens can draft him to add some youth at rush linebacker and hope he can learn behind Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs.



  33. Green Bay Packers: Paul Perkins, RB, UCLA

    Green Bay gets the 131st pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Cleveland Browns signed Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Williams became a Free Agent in 2015.


    The Green Bay Packers could use another running back for depth. Paul Perkins can do what his predecessor Jonathan Franklin failed to do by coming in as a third string running back who can compete with James Starks for a backup role.


  34. Baltimore Ravens: Aaron Burbridge, WR, Michigan State

    Baltimore gets the 132nd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Chicago Bears signed Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after McPhee became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Baltimore drafts a wide receiver for depth. Some consdier Aaron Burbridge a day 2 prospect making him an incredible steal in the late fourth round.


  35. San Francisco 49ers: Aziz Shittu, 3-4 LE, Stanford

    San Francisco gets the 133rd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Washington Redskins signed San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Culliver became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Aziz Shittu fits what the 49ers want to do. Shittu makes a lot of sense for 49ers.


  36. Baltimore Ravens: Eric Murray, CB, Minnesota

    Baltimore gets the 134th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the San Francisco 49ers signed Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Smith became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Baltimore adds another cornerback for depth. Eric Murray of Minnesota makes too much sense here.



  37. Dallas Cowboys: K.J. Dillon, SS, West Virginia

    Dallas gets the 135th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Dallas Cowboys backup right tackle Jeremy Parnell as a starter in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Parnell became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Dallas takes a safety here. K.J. Dillon can play strong safety or free safety, but he isn't as skilled as teammate Karl Joseph.


  38. Denver Broncos: Deion Jones, 3-4 ROLB, LSU

    Denver gets the 136th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the San Diego Chargers signed Denver Broncos left guard Orlando Franklin in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Franklin became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Denver takes a pass rusher for depth. Deion Jones is a steal at this point, and he may be able to move to inside linebacker in Denver's 3-4 defense.


    Previous Pick: Kris Frost, 3-4 MLB, Auburn

  39. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Payton, WR, UCLA

    Green Bay gets the 137th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Green Bay Packers dime cornerback Davon House hoping he'd be a #1 field cornerback that covers an opponents top receiver in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after House became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Green Bay uses this pick to draft a wide receiver. Jordan Payton is a great value pick near the end of the fourth round.


  40. Cleveland Browns: Antonio Morrison, 3-4 MLB, Florida

    Cleveland gets the 138th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the New York Jets signed Cleveland Browns nickel cornerback Buster Skryne in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Thomas became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Antonio Morrison makes a ton of sense here. He fills a need as a 3-4 middle linebacker for depth in Cleveland.


  41. Buffalo Bills: Willie Henry, DT, Michigan

    Buffalo gets the 139th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft as a compensation pick. They get this pick because the Tennessee Titans signed Buffalo Bills strong safety Da Norris Searcy in the 2015 NFL Free Agency Period after Searcy became a Free Agent in 2015.


    Buffalo needs a 4-3 defensive tackle for depth behind Kyle Williams. Willie Henry is a great value pick at the end of the fourth round.
