2016 NFL mock draft: Pac-12 perspective - three Pac-12 players go in first round

A very, very, very early look at the 2016 NFL Draft and which Pac-12 players could go in the first round.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

1. Tennessee - Joey Bosa DE Ohio State

2. Jacksonville - Vernon Hargreaves CB Florida

3. Tampa Bay - Laremy Tunsil T Mississippi

4. Cleveland - Cardale Jones QB Ohio State

5. Washington - Christian Hackenberg QB Penn State

6. Oakland - Ronnie Stanley T Notre Dame

7. Jets - Connor Cook QB Michigan State

8. San Francisco - Shawn Oakman DE Baylor

9. Houston - Laquon Treadwell WR Mississippi

10. Chicago - Jalen Ramsey S Florida State

11. San Diego -  Robert Nkemdiche DE Mississippi

12. Minnesota - Tyler Boyd WR Pittsburgh

13. Atlanta - Leonard Floyd LB Georgia

14. Buffalo - Kendall Fuller CB Virginia Tech

15. Miami - Taylor Decker T Ohio State

16. St. Louis - Spencer Drango T Baylor

17. Giants - Ezekiel Elliott RB Ohio State

18. Kansas City - A'Shawn Robinson DT Alabama

19. Detroit - Duke Williams WR Auburn

20. New Orleans - Shilique Calhoun DE Michigan State

21. Carolina - Derrick Henry RB Alabama

22. Pittsburgh - Jaylon Smith LB Notre Dame

23. Arizona - Carl Lawson DE Auburn

24. Cincinnati - Myles Jack LB UCLA

Jack maybe doesn't quite deserve the level of hype he has received in his first two seasons at UCLA, but he seems like a solid late-first round pick due to his versatility and athleticism. If Shaq Thompson found a way to get into the first round, Jack certainly should as well. The Bengals would be a nice fit for him where he could rush off the edge, but also work in coverage.

25. Denver - Chris Jones DE Mississippi State

26. Philadelphia - Su'a Cravens S USC

Who loves Pac-12 players more than Chip Kelly? Who could use a guy who likely projects as a Troy Polamalu-type safety at the next level to help keep improving his defense. Who would be a perfect fit here? Su'a Cravens.

27. Dallas - Cameron Sutton CB Tennessee

28. Indianapolis - Marquez North WR Tennessee

29. Green Bay - Emmanuel Ogbah DE Oklahoma State

30. Baltimore - O.J. Howard TE Alabama

31. Seattle - Isaac Seumalo C Oregon State

The Seahawks are going to love having Jimmy Graham, but losing Max Unger is no small loss. They will want to really upgrade the interior of their offensive line as soon as possible. Seumalo, who I think will have a huge season after missing 2014 due to injury would be an excellent player to slide in.
