2016 NFL Re-Draft: First Round Do-Over

32. Seattle Seahawks - Myles Jack - LB



Original Spot For Jack: 36th Overall (Jacksonville Jaguars)
Original 31st Pick: Germain Ifedi - OT

Jack is the Swiss-army knife of the draft -- having played multiple positions during his time as a UCLA Bruin. Pete Carroll would love having an athlete like Jack on the field. The Seahawks would then possess the flexibility to line him up at different spots within the star-studded defense.

31. Carolina Panthers - Chris Jones - DT



Original Spot For Jones: 37th Overall (Kansas City Chiefs)
Original 30th Pick:Vernon Butler - DT

Jones’ rookie numbers don’t pop off the screen at first glance. Though he accrued just two sacks in 16 games, the Kansas City defensive lineman was critical to the Chiefs' stout defense. Jones outplayed veteran Dontari Poe for much of the season, and was easily the best interior lineman for one of the top defenses in the league.

30. Arizona Cardinals - Su'a Cravens - LB/S



Original Spot For Cravens: 53rd Overall (Washington Redskins)
Original 29th Pick: Robert Nkemdiche - DT

Cravens wasn’t able to see the field much of his rookie year. When he did get playing time, he made the most of it. The hybrid safety/linebacker would do well in an Arizona defense that has gotten the most out of previous tweener athletes including CB/S Tyrann Mathieu and LB/S Deone Bucannon. However, Su’a Cravens has recently hinted at retirement, making his availability completely unknown.

29. New England Patriots - Hunter Henry - TE



Original Spot For Henry: 35th Overall (San Diego Chargers)
Original Pick: N/A

We can do whatever we want in our hypothetical re-draft, including giving the Patriots back their first round pick they never should have lost. Henry’s ability to be flexed out on the perimeter -- as well as in the traditional spot on the line -- is a trait highly coveted by the Patriots. They would find a plethora of ways to get the big target open down the field.

28. San Francisco 49ers - Paxton Lynch - QB



Original Spot For Lynch: 26th Overall (Denver Broncos)
Original 28th Pick: Joshua Garnett - OG

The 49ers weren’t too confident with their quarterbacks heading into 2016 -- evidenced by their willingness to start Blaine Gabbert in Week 1. Lynch has a powerful arm and great size for the position. He just needs a little bit of time to be molded into a more polished player.
