2018 NFL Mock Draft
- Cleveland Browns: Saquon Barkley RB
The Browns choose a player here that has shown his potential. One of the most sure talents, and will transfer fantastically into the NFL. Most people have a QB with this pick but I don’t think they risk losing the best overall player in this draft.
2. New York Giants: Sam Darnold QB
I’m not sold on Darnold and hate that he didn’t throw at the combine. with that being said, most people have him as the best QB in this draft. Eli is on his last leg and the Giants may not be n this position in the draft for awhile. They take advantage of their placement and take Darnold.
3. Indianapolis Colts: Bradley Chubb EDGE
I think the colts are hoping that Barkley is still on the board at this point, but that’s not going to happen. The Colts will shift their attention to their defense and take one of the best talents in Chubb.
4. Cleveland Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick DB
The Browns hope that Darnold is still on the board. when the giants take them they don’t gamble on a quarterback again. Instead of drafting a QB they choose to sign Teddy Bridgewater. They continue building their defense with Fitzpatrick.
5. Denver Broncos: Quenton Nelson OL
The Broncos win the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes. they take QB off their draft needs. The Broncos opt to protect their new QB and take nelson to add some stability on the O-Line
6. New York Jets: Josh Rosen QB
The Jets are happy to see Rosen still on the board. They lose the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, but get the best natural passer in the draft in Rosen.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Derwin James DB
Tampa was hoping to see Chubb still on the board, however they move on to their next need at CB and take James to play Corner instead of playing safety.
8. Chicago Bears: Mike McGlinchey OL
The Bears Ponder taking Calvin Ridley here but opt to invest into some protection for Trubisky first. The bears will look to the second round to get their WR, and still get their man in the first round.
9. San Francisco 49ers: Isaiah Wynn OL
Similar to the Trubisky situation The 49ers look to protect Jimmy Garoppolo, their QB of the future, and get their man in Wynn to put in front of Jimmy.
10. Oakland Raiders: Roquan Smith LB
The Raiders need some serious DB help, but Smith is to good of a prospect to pass on. They still fill a position of need at LB, and hope to get back on track in 2018.
11. Miami Dolphins: Baker Mayfield QB
The Dolphins decide its time to move on from Tannehill. They Gamble on Mayfield and hope to find a solid replacement for Ryan Tannehill.
12. Cincinnati Bengals: Orlando Brown OL
The Bengals are kind of handcuffed in this situation. They are desperate need for O- Line help they overlook Brown’s dreadful Combine and take a gamble on him.
13. Washington Redskins: Vita Vea DL
The Redskins still have improvements to make on the D-Line. They look to one of the most special talents in the draft and take Vea to add stability on the interior.
14. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Ward DB
Green Bay opts to address its need in the secondary. They get a steal with Denzel Ward and pretty much run to the podium.
15. Arizona Cardinals: Lamar Jackson QB
The Cardinals are in desperate need for a QB with the departure of Palmer. They take Jackson and hope they get Mike Vick 2.0.
16. Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Ridley WR
The Ravens lack a true number 1 receiver. They address their need with the “best” WR in the draft. They hope with steady QB play he can be great.
17. Los Angeles Chargers: Tremaine Edmunds LB
The Chargers continue you to build a scary defense behind their nasty front. They get pretty good value out of this pick and hope it takes their defense to the next level.
18. Seattle Seahawks: Josh Jackson DB
The Seahawks look to Rebuild the Legion of Boom. They add Jackson, a young, talented corner to add some new energy to a team in desperate need of some changes.
19. Dallas Cowboys: Christian Kirk WR
Instead of releasing Dez the Cowboys give him his long overdue partner in crime. Not only will this help Dez out, but it will add energy to the whole offense, and another threat on offense. The Cowboys get a key piece for a title run with this pick.
20. Detroit Lions: Marcus Davenport DE
The new head coach begins right away on building a defense. They get a guy with a high ceiling and a promising future in Davenport. they get great value with this pick.
21. Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen QB
The Bills decide its time to part ways with Tyrod Taylor. They take a gamble on the biggest arm in the draft in Josh Allen and hope for the best.
22. Buffalo Bills: Will Hernandez OL
The Bills decide to invest in protection for their new QB. Hernandez boosted his stock at the senior bowl, and it will pay off on draft night.
23. Los Angeles Rams: Rashaan Evans LB
The Rams look to keep building after the Marcus Peters trade. They hope Evans can help elevate their defense to the next level.
24. Carolina Panthers: Courtland Sutton WR
It’s no secret the Panthers need a WR. With Sutton still on the board at 24 the war room is extremely happy. They get their guy with this pick.
25. Tennessee Titans: Arden Key DE
The Titans have shown they have some solid play on offense. They decide it is time to start building a defense. They get a great talent in Arden Key.
26. Atlanta Falcons: Taven Bryan DL
The Falcons are going to have a rough free agency. They will begin rebuilding their D-Line with Taven Bryan.
27. New Orleans Saints: Dallas Goedert TE
The Saints finally get their Jimmy Graham with this pick. Their offense will improve even more.
28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Leighton Vander Esch LB
The Steelers get the much needed LB help that they need. Look for their defense to improve next year.
29. Jacksonville Jaguars: Hayden Hurst TE
The Jags are going to look for ways to improve their offense to go with the best defense in the league. They get a good fit with Hayden Hurst.
30. Minnesota Vikings: Connor Williams OL
The Vikings look for ways to give Case Keenum protection up front. Yes Keenum, because they lose the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes.
31. New England Patriots: Mike Hughes CB
I expect the Patriots to part ways with Malcom Butler. they find a quick replacement in Mike Hughes.
32. Philadelphia Eagles: Harold Landry LB
The eagles get a steal and improve their defense to close out the first round.
