2018 NFL Draft Re-Mock

This is a 2018 NFL Draft Re-Mock. I’m going back to 2018 and re-distributing all of the 2018 NFL Draft prospects to all of the teams in the 2018 NFL Draft order. This 2018 NFL Draft Re-Mock is based on how these players have performed in their careers, as well as the needs each team had back in 2018.

  1. Cleveland Browns: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Baker Mayfield, QB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Baker Mayfield, QB

    The Browns had their pick of any quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft, and they went with Baker Mayfield. There’s no question as to who would be the choice if the Browns were lucky enough to redo this selection. Josh Allen has emerged as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, while Mayfield has already bounced around the league.

    Pick change; previously Josh Allen, QB

  2. New York Giants: Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Saquon Barkley, RB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Saquon Barkley, RB

    Eli Manning was on his last legs when the 2018 NFL Draft occurred. The Giants would eventually spend a first-round pick on a quarterback the following year on Daniel Jones. In this scenario, they would definitely secure another franchise quarterback and then build around him in 2019 and beyond.

  3. New York Jets: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Sam Darnold, QB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Sam Darnold, QB

    Sorry, Jets fans, your team missed out on another great quarterback, as there were only two viable signal-callers in this class. What they can do here is bolster their cornerback situation four years earlier than they did with Sauce Gardner. Jaire Alexander is one of the top corners in the NFL, so he would have been a great player in the Jets’ secondary since 2018.



  4. Buffalo Bills: Fred Warner, LB, BYU
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Josh Allen, QB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Josh Allen, QB

    The Bills can’t be fans of this alternate timeline, as they’d miss out on Josh Allen. If they had known everything ahead of time and were drafting No. 4 overall, they would likely select Fred Warner, who is arguably the best linebacker in the NFL at the moment. We know Buffalo wanted a linebacker because it drafted Tremaine Edmunds with its second first-round pick.

  5. Denver Broncos: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Bradley Chubb, DE
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Bradley Chubb, DE

    Bradley Chubb is a very talented player, but he didn’t quite live up to his potential because he spent too much time dealing with injuries. If Denver could do it over, I imagine it would target Denzel Ward to serve as an upgrade over the inconsistent Bradley Roby.



  6. Indianapolis Colts: Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Quenton Nelson, G
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Roquan Smith, LB

    Here’s a boring pick. The Colts made the correct choice to select Quenton Nelson, who has emerged as one of the top guards in the NFL. It’s a shame for him that the rest of the front has degraded in the past couple of years.

  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Vita Vea, NT, Washington
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Vita Vea, NT
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Quenton Nelson, G

    We’ll try not to have too many boring picks, but this is another necessary one. It’s hard to imagine the Buccaneers passing on Vita Vea, who helped them win a Super Bowl during Tom Brady’s first year with the team.



  8. Arizona Cardinals: Brian O’Neill, OT, Pittsburgh
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Josh Rosen, QB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Josh Rosen, QB

    This pick definitely won’t be a repeat, as Josh Rosen was the worst of the five quarterbacks in the opening round of this draft. Anyone could have seen that from a mile away, as Charlie Campbell reported prior to this draft that Rosen had interests other than football. Rosen was terrible, though one of the many reasons he failed was because Arizona had a huge hole at right tackle, which could easily have been filled by Brian O’Neill, an elite player at his position.

  9. San Francisco 49ers: Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Mike McGlinchey, OT
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Minkah Fitzpatrick, S

    Back to the boring picks! Along with Brian O’Neill, Mike McGlinchey is one of the best right tackles in the NFL. With Fred Warner off the board, I don’t see why the 49ers would pass on their current bookend for Trent Williams. San Francisco’s elite offensive line is a primary reason why all of its quarterbacks have succeeded over the years.



  10. Oakland Raiders: Derwin James, S, Florida State
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Kolton Miller, OT
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Mike McGlinchey, OT

    Kolton Miller is coming off a great season, but he had some struggles early in his career. That’s why he wasn’t the repeat pick in this re-mock, but any Raider fan is welcome to convince me that he should be. However, I think they’d all love to have one of their rival play-makers in their secondary, which has been a huge problem area for many seasons.

  11. Miami Dolphins: Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Minkah Fitzpatrick, S
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Tremaine Edmunds, LB

    Minkah Fitzpatrick would be a great option for any team not named the Dolphins in this spot. However, he failed in Miami, so I imagine the Dolphins would pursue another defensive back. Carlton Davis would be a huge upgrade over the starting cornerback across from Xavien Howard, who was some guy named Cordrea Tankersley.

  12. Cleveland Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick, S/CB, Alabama
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Denzel Ward, CB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Denzel Ward, CB

    Denzel Ward is not available, but the Browns can still upgrade their secondary by nabbing a key member of their arch rival’s defense. Minkah Fitzpatrick is a deadly play-maker in Pittsburgh’s secondary, so I’m sure Cleveland would love to have him.

  13. Washington Redskins: Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Da’Ron Payne, NT
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Vita Vea, NT

    It seems like the Redskins have had a huge hole at linebacker since the days of London Fletcher. Their linebackers back in 2018 were guys named Mason Foster and Zach Brown, so upgrades were desperately needed. Shaq Leonard, previously known as Darius Leonard, would have provided a big one.

  14. Green Bay Packers: Harold Landry, DE/OLB, Boston College
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Jaire Alexander, CB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Derwin James, S

    The Packers had problems at outside linebacker back in 2018, aside from Clay Matthews, of course. However, Matthews was aging rapidly at this time, so a replacement in the near future was needed. Harold Landry, who has become a great pass-rushing presence for Tennessee, would have offered a great bookend for Matthews in the short term.

  15. Chicago Bears: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Roquan Smith, LB
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Marcus Davenport, DE

    The Bears drafted Roquan Smith, and I think they’d do it again. Smith helped them reach the playoffs in 2018, and he would eventually net them draft capital from Baltimore.



  16. New Orleans Saints: Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma
    Actual 2018 NFL Draft Pick: Marcus Davenport, DE
    My 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Lamar Jackson, QB

    The Saints surrendered their 2019 first-round pick to move up for Marcus Davenport, which was a baffling move at the time, and still is now. I’m sure New Orleans would want a better player after giving up major draft capital, and Mark Andrews would qualify. Drew Brees would have enjoyed throwing to Andrews in the twilight of his career.
