2018 Mock NFL Draft 3.0

A record 6 QBs go in 2018 by my prediction (down one from Mock 1.0).

We are less than 5 days away from the big event to be held in Arlington Texas on 26-28 April. 

Actually I believe BUF will trade up with the CLE and get the #4 overall pick for their 12th and 22nd picks and...ARI will trade up with CLE to get the #12 overall pick and NYG face a choice between Barkley or Chubb at #2 overall. 

Here is the current draft order, team needs IMO (in parenthesis) and my prediction for their pick.

1 CLE (QB, CB, OT, S,WR)               Josh Allen QB 
2 NYG (QB, OL, RB, WR)                 Saquon Barkley RB       
3 NYJ (QB, OL, WR)                          Baker Mayfield QB
BUF (CLE) (QB, OL, WR, S, LB)   Sam Darnold QB         
from CLE for 12th and 22nd picks
5 DEN (CB, TE, OL, WR, QB)           Josh Rosen QB 

Yes 4 QBs in first 5 picks!!!!

6 IND (OL, WR, LB, DT)                   Bradley Chubb DE
7 TB (RB, OL, CB, DL, S)                  Derwin James S
8 CHI (CB, OL, DL, WR, ILB)           Roquan Smith LB
9 SF (OG, WR, CB, TE)                     Quentin Nelson OG

Mock NFL Draft 2018 1.0

Now that the majority of free agents have been procured (or in the case of Dez Bryant released) it is time to predict the upcoming NFL draft first round picks!

A record 7 QBs go in 2018 by my prediction.

We are less than 2 weeks away from the big event to held in Arlington Texas on 26-28 April. 

Actually I believe DEN will trade up with the NYG and get the #2 overall pick and...ARI will trade up with CLE to get the #4 overall pick and Josh Allen QB there so 4 QBs go in first four picks overall and NYG face a choice between Barkley or Chubb at #5 overall. 

Here is the current draft order, team needs IMO (in parenthesis) and my prediction for their pick.

1 CLE (QB, CB, OT, S,WR)               Sam Darnold QB 
2 NYG (QB, OL, RB, WR)                 Bradley Chubb DE
3 NYJ (QB, OL, WR)                          Baker Mayfield QB
4 CLE (see above)                               Saquon Barkley RB (hoped for Chubb or may trade this to BUF)
5 DEN (CB, TE, OL, WR, QB)           Josh Rosen QB (Den looks to trade up w NYG but cannot and still get Elway's QB of future)
6 IND (OL, WR, LB, DT)                   Denzel Ward CB
7 TB (RB, OL, CB, DL, S)                  Derwin James S
8 CHI (CB, OL, DL, WR, ILB)           Quentin Nelson OG
9 SF (OG, WR, CB, TE)                      Tremaine Edwards LB
10 OAK (OT, almost any DEF pos)    Roquan Smith LB
11 MIA (DL, LB, TE, QB, CB)           Vita Vea DL
12 BUF (QB, OL, WR, S, LB)            Josh Allen QB (possibly could trade up with CHI, SF or OAK to move ahead of MIA)
13 WAS (Def, OG, QB)                      Mason Rudolph QB
14 GB (CB, LB, OT, WR)                  Minkah Fitzpatrick DB
15 AZ (QB, OL, WR, CB, S)             Lamar Jackson QB

High Stakes Fantasy Football Signup has already Started

The Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) is up and running as is the National Fantasy Football Championship (NFFC) and the Fantasy Football World Championship (FFWC).

The time to register is now before each of the big 3 have their “early bird special” run out. 

This means joining a league before the end of May!

The each have smaller money leagues too and dynasty and best ball and other variations and combinations so look around and play some fantasy football.

I myself am in 5 dynasty leagues this year and 4 expert leagues and I expect 10 other FF leagues so 20 is a realistic number again for this year.
