With the regular season over, nearly two-thirds of the league has its sights set fully on the 2016 NFL Draft. The Tennessee Titans start things off at No. 1 with the smart, obvious and sort-of-boring choice. After that, look for plenty of surprises.
Tennessee Titans: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss
Adding an offensive tackle with the No. 1 pick may seem a little dull, but it would be a smart move by a team that needs to make a handful of them this offseason.

In doing so, having Lewan and guard Chance Warmack would give the Titans one of the league’s better run-blocking right sides in the league.
Cleveland Browns: Jared Goff, QB, California
Johnny Manziel’s time in Mens Dave Hollins Jersey Cleveland is basically done, and he never really gave good enough reason to keep him around. Once again the Browns are starting anew.

BLACK SUNDAY: Monday has been Adrian Clayborn Jersey known as “Black Monday” in the NFL as the day when middling teams axe coaches for leading underwhelming seasons. Some teams couldn’t wait to begin searching for new leadership, however.
First, there was the Cleveland Browns, who fired head coach Mike Pettine, their third head coach in four years, and general manager Ray Farmer. The Browns then promoted their general counsel to vice president of football operations, which means that a man who has zero scouting experience now has final say over their 53-man roster.
Not to be outdone, the San Francisco 49ers moved quickly to fire Jim Tomsula, a man who CEO Jed York hand picked to be the 49ers’ head coach not even a year ago after “mutually parting” with Jim Harbaugh.
