Sean Selby’s NFL Mock Draft 2018

  1. Cleveland Browns – Sam Darnold QB (USC) The Browns did get Tyrod Taylor but does anyone think that he could really be anything more than a stop gap?

 

  1. New York Giants – Bradley Chubb DL (NC State) Many think the Giants should take the stud Barkley out of PSU here, but Eli is toast and with a new regime, the Giants may go qb here too. Instead they look to build for the future starting through the trenches.  

 

  1. New York Jets – Baker Mayfield QB (Oklahoma) Yes, the top three picks are all qbs, and for some reason I can see this kid fitting in with New York for some reason. I believe Josh Rosen may be a better player, but this is the swag factor here.

 

  1. Cleveland Browns – Saquon Barkley RB (Penn State) They get their qb, and now they take what may be the most explosive runner coming out of college in years. All of a sudden, the Browns could be competitive.

 

  1. Denver Broncos – Tremaine Edwards LB (Virginia Tech) I could see the Broncos trading down a few spots here, but for this purpose, they take the best LB in the draft, a position of need.

 

  1. Indianapolis Colts – Quenton Nelson OG (Notre Dame) With Andrew Luck (hopefully) returning, this team STILL needs offensive line help

 

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Derwin James CB (Florida State) The kid is a playmaker and could pair up nicely with Brent Grimes and Vernon Hargreaves.

 

  1. Chicago Bears – Minkah Fitzpatrick CB (Alabama) Adding some depth at corner may not be the greatest need for the Bears, but they can’t pass up on the very solid Fitzpatrick to solidify their secondary.

 

  1. SF 49ers – Marcus Davenport DL (UTSA) The Niners were 26th in sacks last year and need a pass rush if they think they can compete for the West this year.

 

  1. Oakland Raiders – Denzel Ward CB (Ohio State) The Raiders need help in the secondary, but could see them going LB here too. Ward broke up 15 passes last year, and could help out in a big way.

 

  1. Miami Dolphins – Josh Allen QB (Wyoming) Ryan Tannehill hasn’t exactly blown the doors off, plus he’s coming off a season ending injury. The Dolphins turn the page.

 

  1. Buffalo Bills – Josh Rosen QB (UCLA) I can see the Bills trading up, possibly with the Broncos, but either way, the take a QB that will have dildos thrown at him by the table diving Bills fans.

 

  1. Washington Redskins – Roquan Smith LB (Georgia) The dude was in on what seemed like every play in the UGA games I watched last year. He would be a pretty good addition to a defense that needs an identity.

 

  1. Green Bay Packers – Calvin Ridley WR (Alabama) After letting Jordy Nelson go, and Randall Cobb not producing, Ridley could be fill a need for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

 

  1. Arizona Cardinals – Orlando Brown OT (Oklahoma) The Cardinals could be another team that trades up in hopes to get their hands on a qb. If not, they take Brown, crossing their fingers that he could be half as good as his father.

 

  1. Baltimore Ravens – Christian Kirk WR (Texas A&M) The Ravens offense needs a spark badly. Kirk catches much of what is thrown his way, not blazing speed, but quick.

 

  1. LA Chargers – Maurice Hurst DL (Michigan) Hurst was in the backfield a lot last year, causing constant disruption to plays, something the Chargers would love to have.

 

  1. Seattle Seahawks – Josh Jackson CB (Iowa) With Richard Sherman gone, the Seahawks take a kid who had 8 pickoffs last season for Iowa.

 

  1. Dallas Cowboys – James Washington WR (Oklahoma State) With rumors of Dez Bryant leaving looming, (UPDATE: He was released) Washington could be a nice replacement with great size (6’0 205 lbs) and good hands.

 

  1. Detroit Lions – Derrius Guice (LSU)  The Lions haven’t had a respectable running attack in a while, and Guice had over 1,200 yards the last two seasons at LSU. Maybe he can break the spell.

 

  1. Cincinnati Bengals – Da’Ron Payne DT (Alabama) The Bengals add a good piece to go after the older qbs in their division.

 

  1. Buffalo Bills – Mike Hughes CB (Central Florida) Would be a nice compliment to last year’s pick Tre’Davious White, and gives Sean McDermott another weapon on defense.

 

  1. New England Patriots – Vita Vea DT (Washington) After giving up 41 points in the Super Bowl in the loss to the CHAMPION EAGLES, the Patriots try to build up their defensive line.

 

  1. Carolina Panthers – Will Hernandez OT (UTEP)  The Panthers could add a WR here, but may hold off until the second round for that. Instead, they try to add a big body to help protect Cam and the new running game.

 

  1. Tennessee Titans – Harold Landry LB (Boston College)Some think that the Titans could be a dark horse to be a serious contender for the Super Bowl out of the AFC this year. They try to sure up their defense with a solid outside linebacker in college.

 

  1. Atlanta Falcons – Taven Bryan DT (Florida) The Falcons defense really fell off last season compared to the year they made it to the Super Bowl so they want to tighten it up, starting with the line.

 

  1. New Orleans Saints – Mike Gesicki TE (PSU) The Saints add the talented tight end to go along with the new offense attack, gearing up for what could one more run for Drew Brees.

 

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers – Leighton Vander Esche LB (Boise St) After suddenly losing Ryan Shazier last season, the Steelers find themselves drafting a possible replacement here. And doesn’t it just sound like  Steelers defensive player name?

 

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars – Connor Williams OT (Texas Tech) The Jags weren’t expected to be drafting this low in the order but they surprised everyone last season. They take a lineman to protect Blake Bortles, who even MORE surprisingly is still the quarterback for the next few years.

 

  1. Minnesota Vikings – Some tissues. Yeah, that’s right. They don’t need anything else more than a pack of Kleenex after the way they acted after the NFC Championship Game, and all offseason. Get over it.

 

  1. New England Patriots – Mason Rudolph QB (Oklahoma St) This is a dual purpose pick. To replace Jimmy G, and to potentially be the replacement for the 40 year old Tom Brady.

 

  1. WORLD CHAMPION Philadelphia Eagles – Mike McGlinchey OT (Notre Dame) I honestly have no idea which direction the Eagles will go here (nor do i really know on any of these picks). They have some need at depth at linebacker, or could add to the back end of their secondary. But I will say that they go with an offensive lineman here to address some future depth issues that they will face. I would be pretty happy if McGlinchey is sitting here at 32.
