  1. Washington Redskins: Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
    There was a logical flaw in my previous 2018 NFL Mock Draft update (at least one). I didn't have the 49ers taking a quarterback because they have a great shot at obtaining Kirk Cousins. If that happens, the Redskins will be desperate for a quarterback, yet I didn't give them one.

    Jarrett Stidham is a fourth potential top-10 quarterback pick in this class. Scouts are excited to watch Stidham, as he possesses great arm strength and accuracy.

  2. Carolina Panthers: Harold Landry, DE/OLB, Boston College
    The Panthers have a couple of aging defensive ends who will see plenty of action for them this season in Julius Peppers and Charles Johnson. They'll need to add some young blood at the position.

  3. Arizona Cardinals: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
    There was great speculation that the Cardinals would take a quarterback this past draft. I never bought into that because Arizona doesn't let information leak out like that. However, the fact remains that the Cardinals need to find a successor for Carson Palmer.

    Josh Rosen was once the projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, but he's been passed by Sam Darnold and now even Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson. NFL coaches and owners are wary of the sort of things Rosen has discussed to the media, and his open views could hurt him. Scouts have told us that his teammates don't like him either, so that's a major strike against him. And for the cherry on top, even if his high school coach criticized him. For more, you really need to check out the new NFL Draft Rumor Mill for scouts' thoughts on Rosen and the other quarterbacks.



  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C.State
    Robert Ayers is just a temporary solution for the Buccaneers at defensive end. They'll need a long-term starter across from Noah Spence to help put pressure on Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Drew Brees.

    Pick change; previously Tyquan Lewis, DE

  5. Los Angeles Chargers: Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State
    The Chargers lost Brandon Flowers this offseason, so they're pretty thin at cornerback. If 2015 third-rounder Craig Mager doesn't pan out, they'll need to add a third corner to go along with Casey Hayward and Jason Verrett.

    Pick change; previously Martinas Rankin, OT



  6. Detroit Lions: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
    The Lions have nothing outside of A'Shawn Robinson at defensive tackle. They'll need to bolster their talent at the position, and Christian Wilkins is a bargain at this stage of the 2018 NFL Draft.

  7. Dallas Cowboys: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State
    The Cowboys have a great offense because of their offensive line and young backfield. Dez Bryant is also great when healthy. What's missing is a second receiver (or a first when Bryant is injured).

    James Washington made somewhat of a surprise choice by going back to school; he had a chance to be a first-round this April.

  8. Buffalo Bills: Jordan Whitehead, S, Pittsburgh
    Losing Aaron Williams to injury hurt the Bills. They signed Micah Hyde this offseason, but he's not enough to fix their major hole at safety.



  9. Seattle Seahawks: Tyquan Lewis, DE, Ohio State
    The Seahawks could use a young edge rusher, as Cliff Avril will turn 32 a few weeks prior to the 2018 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Tarvarus McFadden, CB

  10. Tennessee Titans: Iman Marshall, CB, USC
    The Titans had a serious need at cornerback entering the 2017 NFL Draft. That's still the case. They selected Adoree Jackson to fill a void, but another cornerback should've been added as well.



  11. Philadelphia Eagles: Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
    Both Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews will be free agents after this season, so the Eagles will need another receiver.

    Courtland Sutton shocked many by going back to school because had a chance to be a first-round this April.

  12. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cameron Smith, LB, USC
    The Steelers lost Lawrence Timmons this offseason, so it was a bit of a surprise that they didn't address inside linebacker at all. Here's their chance to do so.



  13. Green Bay Packers: Josh Sweat, DE/OLB, Florida State
    The Packers had a big need at outside linebacker entering the draft. They didn't address the position aside from selecting Vince Biegel in the fourth round, however, so that's something they could target early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  14. Oakland Raiders: Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama
    Latavius Murray defected for Minnesota, but the coaching staff didn't want to give him the full workload anyway. As a result, I could see the Raiders spending an early-round selection on a running back, given that Marshawn Lynch won't be on the roster for very long.

  15. Atlanta Falcons: Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame
    The Falcons were expected to fill their need at guard early in the 2017 NFL Draft, but didn't do so until the third day. Here's their chance to find an upgrade.

  16. New England Patriots: Jerome Baker, LB, Ohio State
    The Patriots dealt Jamie Collins last season, thinking Elandon Roberts could fill in admirably. Roberts has potential, but he didn't fare very well. If he continues to struggle, New England could be in the market for a linebacker next spring.

    Jerome Baker was second on Ohio State in tackles last year, taking advantage of the injury to Dante Booker. Baker has a great combination of speed and athleticism.
