Welcome to the Phinsider Community Mock Draft, a chance for 31 members of the Phinsider to project the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The draft is currently ongoing, with the picks being published here on the site each day. The goal is to publish two picks a day over the next couple of weeks, leading us up to the actual NFL Draft.
Our first pick comes from Phinaholic, who represented the Tennessee Titans. His pick aligns with most of the other mock drafts out there, with the Titans selecting Laremy Tunsil, offensive tackle, Ole Miss with the first overall selection.
Phinaholic explains the pick:
As the consensus #1 OT in the draft, Tunsil will lock down the left side for the Titans. Tennessee allowed 54 sacks last year and desperately need to protect Marcus Mariota. This pick will allow the Titans to move Taylor Lewan to the right tackle spot and Jeremiah Poutasi inside to shore up the guard position.
This pick seems almost guaranteed at this point, with the Titans rightfully looking to protect Marcus Mariota and start building the offense around him. Will the Cleveland Browns pick, coming from xkar25, continue with another near-consensus pick?
