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
16 BAL (WR, TE, OL, QB, LB)        Calvin Ridley WR
17 LAC (OT, ILB, DT, QB, S)           Isaiah Wynn OL
18 SEA (OL, CB, DT, TE, S)             Mike McGlinchey OT
19 DAL (WR, DT, TE, LB)                Courtland Sutton WR 
20 DET (DE, TE, RB, OG, LB)          Derrius Guice RB
21 CIN (OL, LB, CB, DT, QB)           Mike Gesicki TE
22 BUF (QB, OL, WR, S, LB)           DJ Moore WR
