It was only a matter of time before Carson Wentz moved up on this draft board.
Because of that, there's some noticeable differences at the middle of the pack.
The North Dakota State quarterback has made his way to the top 10, as the San Francisco 49ers bypass the thought of taking Memphis Tigers quarterback Paxton Lynch with the seventh pick. Nothing else changes at the top.
This is the first mock draft after the season has ended, so the draft order is officially set. Here's the latest draft and some notable predictions.

San Diego Chargers: Laquon Treadwell
The San Diego Chargers are in a unique position.
They're not a team that hovers around the four-win mark every season. In fact, 2015 was the only time since Philip Rivers became the full-time starter in San Diego the Chargers finished with a below-.500 record.
In short, the Chargers won't stay this bad forever. And with star receiver Keenan Allen set to return after suffering a season-ending kidney injury, per Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports, that's going to help Rivers plenty in 2016.
Ohio State Buckeyes pass-rusher Joey Bosa will be available by the time the Chargers are on the clock, and while San Diego could use an elite edge-rusher, giving Rivers enough targets to throw the ball to will widen his Super Bowl window.
That's why the Chargers should draft Ole Miss Rebels receiver Laquon Treadwell with the third pick.

Former NFL Star Warrick Dunn Built Deshaun Watson's Childhood Home
With wide receiver Malcom Floyd retiring, per Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego needs a playmaker to put opposite of Allen. Enter the 6'2" Treadwell. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compared him to Houston Texans star DeAndre Hopkins:
Treadwell is at his best when he has a clean, two-way go off the line of scrimmage and he could be a challenging size matchup from the slot. While Ole Miss used him underneath quite a bit, he runs quality downfield routes and has the ball skills needed to become a more vertical receiver than underneath, possession guy.
If Treadwell resembles any part of Hopkins, the Chargers are in good shape. They could certainly use a pass-rusher, but getting someone to maximize Rivers' chances at winning a Super Bowl is a good way to go.
Detroit Lions: Noah Spence
There's one area the Detroit Lions missed Ndamukong Suh at last season: rushing the passer.
Ziggy Ansah led Detroit with 14.5 sacks—7.5 more than the next-highest player, defensive end Devin Taylor.
The Lions could use another body on the defensive line, and they may be in position to get the biggest steal of the draft in Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence.
There's no denying Spence's talent. He was a Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the Ohio Valley Conference with 11.5 sacks last year and was the anchor in Eastern Kentucky's 15th-ranked run defense. But there is some baggage that comes with Spence from two years at Ohio State.
Spence failed a second drug test in 2014, per Patrick Maks of ElevenWarriors.com. He did not play in Ohio State's Big Ten title game the season prior due to testing positive for ecstasy. On Jan. 19, 2015, he transferred to Eastern Kentucky, per Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com.
Although he could've taken the approach of declaring for the draft last year and hoping a team took him in the later rounds, Spence thought it was important to better himself as a person off the field, per Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports:
I felt like I hadn't proven enough off the field and that I needed more time to show everybody that you could be a better person off the field and to show that that wasn't me -- and that I can go for the rest of my life and be a straight-forward great person, and that I can do that, starting with disciplining myself enough to go down a level and not be ignorant and try and go straight to the NFL.
Now that he seems to be on the right track and has beaten his drug problems, Spence may be ready to be a star pass-rusher coming out of college. He possesses a quick first step off the edge and has elite speed to dominate offensive tackles. Him opposite of Ansah would present Detroit with a pass rush worthy of being the best in the NFC North.
Seattle Seahawks: Corey Coleman
No doubt, the Seattle Seahawks could use some offensive line help. Quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked 45 times last season despite throwing 4,024 yards and 34 touchdowns. He could use some protection.
He could also use some weapons. Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark, but no one else produced at catching the ball for the Seahawks. Tight end Jimmy Graham couldn't duplicate his success in New Orleans in his first year as a Seahawk, and rookie Pro Bowler Tyler Lockett works best as a slot receiver.
Wilson could use someone on the outside who makes big plays and performs bigger than his size. Although the Baylor Bears haven't produced many offensive stars in the NFL, Corey Coleman could be an intriguing prospect for Pete Carroll.
At 5'11" and 190 pounds, Coleman has the same skill set as Baldwin. He's a good route-runner and is great after the catch. Also, he has a nose for the end zone, per his 20 touchdown catches in 2015.
"He's an aggressive-minded competitor who needs only one step to accelerate to top speed," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler said. "Great ability after the catch with elite footwork to make the first man miss before hitting the gas and accelerating to top speed in a wink."
Seattle may go another direction with a taller receiver, perhaps Ohio State's Michael Thomas. But for the kind of spread offense the Seahawks run, Coleman would be a perfect fit for Wilson in the passing game.
