Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports /

Super Bowl 50 between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos is in the books, so why not put together one more mock draft for the 2016 NFL Draft as the offseason officially kicks off?

Now that the Super Bowl is over and the Broncos have been crowned champions of the NFL, the 2016 offseason is under way. That means teams are able to make roster moves like cutting cap casualties, or opening serious contract talks with pending free agents. It also means the preparation really begins for 2016 NFL Free Agency and the 2016 NFL Draft. It’s the next step towards the 2016 NFL Combine, private workouts and finalizing draft boards before the big day arrives on April 30.

It’s going to be glorious. However, that day is still over two months away, which means all we can do for the time being is speculate with these wonderful mock drafts.

Don’t care about the other teams? Here’s my latest Redskins seven-round mock.

So, without further ado, here are my projections for how all 31 first-round picks of the 2016 NFL Draft will play out based on current needs and prospects’ current stock. Remember, the New England Patriots forfeited their 2016 first-round pick as punishment for last year’s DeflateGate scandal.

Next: 1. Tennessee Titans
