NFL Mock Draft 2018 – Two Rounder

With three days to go, below is my second and final NFL Mock Draft. Tweet your thoughts @TomLikeNFL.

 

1. Cleveland Browns – Sam Darnold, QB, USC

The consensus no.1 overall pick and the safe(?) option for John Dorsey and co. at the top of the draft.

 

2. New York Giants – Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

The Giants believe in Eli and look to take who many believe is the best overall player in this draft class.

 

3. New York Jets – Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

The most pro-ready QB and one who has All-Pro potential.

 

4. Cleveland Browns – Bradley Chubb, Edge, NC State

The Browns look to take another blue chip prospect and a great partner to compliment last years no.1 overall pick Myles Garrett.

 

5. Denver Broncos – Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame

John Elway looks to upgrade the Broncos offensive line. This pick will help Denver’s run game and keep whoever their QB of the future is upright.

 

6. **TRADE** Buffalo Bills (from Colts via Jets) – Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

The Bills need a QB and with Josh Allen still available they flip their two first rounders with the Colts. Allen’s big arm should suit the cold Buffalo winters and the young QB can sit behind AJ McCarron for a few weeks/ a season.

 

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech

The upside with Edmunds is intoxicating. Tampa Bay’s lone Super Bowl winning team had an exceptional talent at DT (now have Gerald McCoy) and an All-Pro versatile linebacker who could stuff the run and play in coverage (what they’re looking for in Edmunds).

 

8. Chicago Bears – Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State

The Bears have a young and exciting defense, the addition of Denzel Ward should further help Trubisky and the offense.

 

9. **TRADE** Arizona Cardinals (from 49ers) – Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

The Cardinals were leap-frogged last year for Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes, this year they get ahead of Miami and take the highly accurate and explosive Baker Mayfield.

 

10. Oakland Raiders – Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia

The Raiders look atrocious at linebacker. While undersized, Smith is excellent is space and a huge asset in coverage.

 

11. Miami Dolphins – Vita Vea, DT, Washington

A bad run for the Dolphins in terms of those picked before them but Vita Vea is a force inside and should help Miami’s awful run defense.

 

12. Colts (from Bills) – Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame

The Colts need to protect Andrew Luck and Mike McGlinchey is the first tackle taken off the board.

 

13. Washington Redskins – Minkah Fitzpatrick, S, Alabama

Su’a Cravens didn’t pan out but the Redskins get an excellent play maker in the back end to team up with Josh Norman, Orlando Scandrick and DJ Swearinger.

 

14. Green Bay Packers – Joshua Jackson, CB, Iowa

Green Bay have been terrible at cornerback for too long. Joshua Jackson’s tape is impressive as he’s a long-armed ball hawk who plays the ball and not the man.

 

15. San Francisco 49ers (from Cardinals) – Derwin James, S, Florida State

The 49ers get a blue chip thumper to help slow down Russell Wilson and Jared Goff while trying to also bottle up Todd Gurley and David Johnson in the NFC West.

 

16. Baltimore Ravens – Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

The Ravens need play makers on offense and Calvin Ridley is a polished route runner who was severely underutilised in college.

 

17. Los Angeles Chargers – Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA

The Chargers have a nice interior offensive line but tackle remains a question mark. Miller should help protect Philip Rivers and open holes for Melvin Gordon.

 

18. Seattle Seahawks – Isiah Wynn, OG, Georgia

Year after year the Seattle Seahawks fail to fix their broken offensive line. Wynn should help keep Wilson clean and maul interior linemen in the run game.

 

19. Dallas Cowboys – Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU

Sutton has huge upside and many have his pro comparison as Dez Bryant. Dak Prescott could get an explosive X-receiver with pick 19.

 

20. Detroit Lions – Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

The Lions have not had a 100 yard rusher in forever. Guice seems to be the consensus no.2 RB and fills the LeGarrette Blount-type RB Matt Patrcia and the Patriots had in New England. Guice is a better prospect than Blount and his game is extremely similar to Marshawn Lynch.

 

21. Cincinnati Bengals – Rashaan Evans, OLB, Alabama

The Bengals need to get more athletic at linebacker and Evans fits the mould. He’s also feisty and aggressive – he’ll fit in well in Cincinnati.

 

22. Indianapolis Colts (from Bills) – Marcus Davenport, Edge, UTSA

#DraftTwitter are in love with Davenport. From a measurable standpoint Davenport could be a steal at 22 but he needs to prove he can stack up against better competition.

 

23. New England Patriots – Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

Now this would be a head turner. Lamar Jackson is the antithesis of Tom Brady but Belichick might find the prospect of Brady grooming a potential UFO just too tantalizing.

 

24. Carolina Panthers – Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M

The Panthers need to get faster and need receivers who can create separation and get open for Cam Newton.

 

25. Tennessee Titans – Harold Landry, Edge, Boston College

Landry is an extremely versatile edge rusher who should fit right in next to Brian Orakpo and Jurrell Casey.

 

26. Atlanta Falcons – Taven Bryan, DT, Florida

The Falcons roster is loaded with only defensive tackle holding this defense back from being championship caliber. Tight end could also be an option at 26.

 

27. New Orleans Saints – Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina

Drew Brees gets a new weapon to play with who also has the size and frame to block for Ingram and Kamara in the run game.

 

28. Pittsburgh Steelers – Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

A chippy press corner, Alexander fills a need for Pittsburgh and should help them play man coverage when they next face the Patriots.

 

29. Jacksonville Jaguars – DJ Moore, WR, Maryland

A quick and slippery receive who could take Blake Bortles dump offs the distance. The Jaguars get a much needed play maker at receiver.

 

30. Minnesota Vikings – Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP

The Vikings roster is loaded. The only apparent weakness is the interior of the offensive line. Will Hernandez is a hyper aggressive linemen who relishes going blow for blow in pass protection and should open holes for Dalvin Cook on the ground.

 

31. New England Patriots – Leighton Vander Esch, ILB, Boise State

Bill Belichick loves versatility and I believe the medical concerns surrounding Vander Esch will not scare off New England. Belichick likes large run stuffers at linebacker but Vander Esch can also hang with tight ends in coverage.

 

32. Philadelphia Eagles – Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia

The Eagles could look to trade out of this pick but Chubb would be an excellent compliment for Jay Ajayi. He could pick up the tough yards Blount ground out last year but has better home run ability than Blount.
