2016 NFL Draft: Round 1

2016 NFL Draft
Pick Team Player Shutdown Corner Commentary
3 (3) San Diego Joey Bosa
Joey Bosa
Ohio State
Rotoworld Rank:

Yes, linebacker. In the 3-4 scheme, Bosa will stand up and attack the quarterback from two feet instead of the two-point stance he rushed from all through high school and at Ohio State. He’s a hard-charging, athletic and instinctive rusher, but the pick is odd considering the Chargers’ rushers: Melvin Ingram, Jeremiah Attaochu and Kyle Emmanuel. Bosa’s laid-back attitude will work well in sleepy San Diego, but passing on Jalen Ramsey feels foolish. Grade: C+

4 (4) Dallas Ezekiel Elliott
