I know that mock drafts aren’t supposed to include trades. But with a long offseason ahead of us, isn’t it fun to mix things up?

1. Kansas City Chiefs
Luke Joeckel
Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M

Franchise tackle or Pro Bowl QB? Chiefs choose tackle this time.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars
Barkevious Mingo
Defensive End, LSU

Want a better version of Bruce Irvin? Gus Bradley does!

3. Oakland Raiders
Damontre Moore
Defensive End, Texas A&M

It wouldn’t be very Raiders-like to take Star, he’s not flashy enough..

4. Philadelphia Eagles
Star Lotulelei
Defensive Tackle, Utah

Eagles will likely do more with less on offense under Kelly, so they opt for some defensive help.

5. Detroit Lions
Bjoern Werner
Defensive End, Florida State

Best player on the board, and it’s a position of need for the Lions.

6. Cleveland Browns
Jarvis Jones
Linebacker, Georgia

Health concerns will impact his draft stock, but he’s a hard worker and a great player.

7. Arizona Cardinals
Eric Fisher
Offensive Tackle, Central Michigan

Pair him with a legitimate QB and the Cardinals are on their way to getting back to respectability.

8. Buffalo Bills
Geno Smith
Quarterback, West Virginia

The Bills can’t resist the urge to snag a quarterback.

9. New York Jets
Kenny Vaccaro
Safety, Texas

The Jets need to retool an aging defense.

10. Tennessee Titans
Chance Warmack
Guard, Alabama

Want the old Chris Johnson back? Help him out with some blockers.

11. San Diego Chargers
Lane Johnson
Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

Time to start building back up the O-Line and have a foundation for a new offense.

12. Miami Dolphins
Dee Milliner
Cornerback, Alabama

Sean Smith is out the door this offseason, so bring in a rookie who might be better from day one.

13. Green Bay Packers (via trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers)*
Dion Jordan
Linebacker/Defensive End, Oregon

The Packers take a risk and trade up to get a franchise pass rusher.

14. Carolina Panthers
Sheldon Richardson
Defensive Tackle, Mizzou

The Panthers need help up the middle, and Richardson provides just that

15. New Orleans Saints
Ezekiel Ansah
Defensive End, BYU

The Saints will be back with a vengeance  and need to make sure the defense matches their instantly improved offense under Sean Payton.

16. St. Louis Rams
Cordarrelle Patterson
Wide Receiver, Tennessee

Sam Bradford gets a new target.
