Picks 16-20 in our latest Mock Draft (click here for picks 1-5, picks 6-10, and picks 11-15:

16. Baltimore Ravens

2016 NFL Record: 8-8
Points For: 343 (21.4/g) 21st of 32
Points Against: 321 (20.1/g) 9th of 32

Jabrill Peppers, SS, Michigan

Eric Weddle is on the wrong side of 30 after turning 32 this past January. Weddle however, is a savvy veteran who could be the Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker in terms of teaching Peppers the nuances of playing the position at a very high level. Peppers has a tremendous amount of versatility and talent.

17. Washington Redskins

2016 NFL Record: 8-7-1
Points For: 396 (24.8/g) 12th of 32
Points Against: 383 (23.9/g) 19th of 32

Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

Changes on offense are surely coming in Washington with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon having departed as free agents, leaving some holes in the passing game. If the Redskins invest in Kirk Cousins they need to provide him with all the pieces to succeed in the Nation’s Capital.

18. Tennessee Titans

2016 NFL Record: 9-7
Points For: 381 (23.8/g) 14th of 32
Points Against: 378 (23.6/g) 16th of 32

Marlon Humphrey, DB, Alabama

The Titans finally evolved last season and finished with a winning record for the first time since 2011. Tennessee was tied for the second-most yards allowed via the pass (269.2) in the NFL. They ranked 18th in total interceptions which leads to Humphrey being a welcomed addition to the secondary.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2016 NFL Record: 9-7
Points For: 354 (22.1/g) 18th of 32
Points Against: 369 (23.1/g) 15th of 32

Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee

William Gholston was re-signed but he had just three sacks last season. Barnett could be the premonition of dual edge rushers for Tampa Bay, along with Noah Spence, who was terrific as a rookie and should continue to emerge as a force. Barnett could wreak havoc on the other side and push the Buccaneers to another level defensively.

20. Denver Broncos

2016 NFL Record: 9-7
Points For: 333 (20.8/g) 22nd of 32
Points Against: 297 (18.6/g) 4th of 32

Zach Cunningham, OLB, Vanderbilt

DeMarcus Ware has retired, leaving a hole in a defense that is the back bone of this Denver team. Keeping it elite is a must even though offensive line issues plague the team. Von Miller is the centerpiece and he needs a supporting cast to allow him to terrorize quarterbacks or allow others to do so as he attracts attention. Takkarist McKinley is another possibility with this selection.
