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
