Mel Kiper's 2016 NFL Mock Draft 4.0: Wentz Still Going to the Browns

Mel Kiper released his fourth mock draft of the year this morning. His first mock draft had the Cleveland Browns going with QB Jared Goff at No. 2 overall. His next two versions had the team taking QB Carson Wentz. Mock drafters are known to mix things up between versions, which actually makes it a bit of a surprise that he continues to stick with Wentz at No. 2 overall for the Browns:

Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State - He's not the top QB on my board, but this isn't a prospect ranking, it's a projection. The addition of Robert Griffin III does provide some added developmental insurance here so they don't have to start a rookie, and it also gives them a chance to wait on a QB pick if they really like one of the guys who could be around in Round 2.

He has Goff dropping to No. 7 overall, where the San Francisco 49ers would take him. RB Ezekiel Elliott seems to be skyrocketing up the charts lately, and Kiper projected him to go No. 6 overall to the Baltimore Ravens.
