2016 NFL Draft: Mike Mayock Releases Final Position Rankings

Corey Coleman and Keanu Neal continue to climb up the board as draft day approaches.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

NFL draft guru Mike Mayock has released his final position rankings for the 2016 draft season, and a few interesting names have crept up into his top five lists (I see you, Christian Hackenberg).  When looking at position groups that the Texans may actually be interested in drafting in the first round, Baylor’s Corey Coleman has overtaken TCU’s Josh Doctson as the number two wideout on Mayock’s board, while fellow Baylor Bear Andrew Billings has completely fallen out of Mayock’s defensive tackle rankings in favor of Mississippi’s Robert Nkemdiche.
