This is my first mock draft for the 2018 draft. Next mock draft will come out after Combine.

I feel the Browns should play this smart and get a QB in the second round, because I think Rudolph will fall there. Since Crowell is most likely out, the Browns get the best RB in this draft and maybe even the best player.
Rosen is the most pro-ready QB in this draft. Let him sit behind Manning for a year, and he could be even better.
Colts may take an OL here, but I feel that their defense needs the most help. Chubb is arguably the best pass rusher in the draft, and the Colts could use that.
The Browns pick Fitzpatrick to improve their secondary. They could trade out of this pick, but their secondary needs this help.
I think the Broncos are the team that will land Kirk Cousins. They use this pick to beef up their offensive line to protect Cousins.
With Darnold still on he board, the Jets jump all over him and get their next franchise QB. Considering their "luck" with the last time they picked a QB out of USC, maybe Darnold can be Sanchise 2.0?
The Bucs are in need of a pass rusher, but James would drastically improve their secondary. With no top safety in their secondary, James could fill that role on Day 1 and give them a building block.
Yes, WR is a big need, but a WR won't do much if Trubisky is always on his back. That's why they go with an OT here. I was stuck between McGlinchey and Williams, but with Williams recent injury, I feel McGlinchey is the better pick.
The 49ers could also use a weapon for Jimmy G, but based off of last years draft, John Lynch likes his defensive players. Edmunds would be a big improvement to their linebackers, and if he has a good combine, he'll be hard to pass up.
It took the Raiders until Week 12 to record their first interception, so their secondary needs some help. I think Ward is the most balanced CB in this draft, but Josh Jackson could land here if he has an impressive Combine. The Raiders also recently cut Amerson, so Ward could be their replacement.
Smith would give the Dolphins a impressive LB core. With Alonso and Smith, the Dolphin's second level would be a problem for opposing offenses.
The Bengals need to find a way to protect Dalton. With Williams, they do that and even get help for Mixon in the run game.
Now that they don't have to pay Cousins, they can use some of that cap space to fill their need at CB. This means they use this pick and address the D-line with a very athletic Payne. After his performance in the Championship, he looks to be a great DT.
The Packers need pretty much every defensive position. While they need pass rushers, they still don't have a CB that can cover a No. 1 receiver. With Jackson, they get a corner with length and ball skills. If he has an impressive Combine, he will most likely go earlier, but we'll save that for later.
Josh Allen's probably the better QB to draft, but he's more of a project QB. With the Cardinals head coach being a defensive coach, they don't have the type of staff to develop a QB. That's why they draft Mayfield. He's the most pro ready out of the QB's available.
There's not much to say about this pick. The Ravens need a playmaking WR, and Ridley's just that. Also, Ozzie Newsome loves his Crimson Tide, so this is a perfect Ravens pick.
