Today on ESPN.com, our stable of NFL Nation writers revisits the 2016 NFL draftand projects a mock draft based on how it would play out with the knowledge we have now.
The first player off the board this time around? Dak Prescott, who was arguably the biggest steal of the draft at pick No. 135 (fourth round) to the Dallas Cowboys. The record-setting Mississippi State product earned the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award after taking over for Tony Romo at the start of the season and leading the Cowboys to the No. 1 seed in the NFC and one of their winningest seasons in franchise history.
Dallas' other megastar-in-waiting from the 2016 rookie class, Ezekiel Elliott, stays at his original position of No. 4 overall, as do Carson Wentz (second) and Joey Bosa (third). Meanwhile the draft's original No. 1 pick, Jared Goff, drops all the way to the Cleveland Browns at No. 8 this time around.
