2018 NFL Mock Draft by Dammboi - 2.5
Published at 2/5/2018 6:24:43 PM

I rate players based on whether or not the pick makes sense, I.E. if it will improve a team, upgrade a position, or add solid depth. I will not do a lot of picks based on hype or "potential"

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

The Browns don't have an identity yet in the run game. Match this prospect with Cleveland's underrated O-line and he might just win OROY in '18. Arguably the most talented RB prospect in a long time.

2. Giants: Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas

New York's fans are sick of seeing Ereck Flowers at LT. This prospect offers better talent at the position and would make a solid RT if LT doesn't work out. Might be a bit of a reach, but if NY is going with Eli for the foreseeable future, they might as well protect him.

3. Colts: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

The Colts have a long list of needs on both sides of the ball, but one of the most gaping holes in their lineup would be filled by this prospect. Anything less than dominance will be a disappointment.

4. Browns: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

Cleveland wants a gunslinger? They get a gunslinger. Match this prospect with former 1st round talents in Corey Coleman and David Njoku and this offense just got a whole lot better.

5. Broncos: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

What do these receivers all have in common?
Juju Smith-Schuster, Nelson Agholor, Robert Woods.
They're all products of USC. My guess on their quarterback production? Just as good. Plus it saves Elway a bunch of cap room to pursue other free agency interests. Sorry Kirk.

6. Jets: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

New York had a surprisingly competitive season with Josh Mccown under center. Only problem? He's close to retirement and is probably unable to withstand a full season as a starter. Petty hasn't shown enough to be considered a starter and Hackenburg will be flippin' burgers in no time with his horrendous play. Rosen is the future of this franchsie.

7. Buccaneers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

Tampa Bay might need a pass rush, but free agency can solve that issue. They lack talent in the back half of their secondary, and Fitzpatrick can play virtually every position in it.

8. Bears: Isaiah Oliver, Cornerback, Colorado

Chicago has done well over the past couple years improving their defense, first with the front seven, and lately in the secondary. However, with the probable departure of perennial free agent Prince Amukamara, Chicago needs a talent across the emerging cornerback Kyle Fuller.

9. Raiders: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

Oakland has some holes in the secondary, but with Karl Joseph and David Amerson, they can afford to patch any gaps with veteran free agents. Vita Vea is a talented (and versatile

10. 49ers: Billy Price, Offensive Guard, Ohio State

They've got their franchise QB. They've got a trio of playmakers in Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor, and Kendrick Bourne, and a reliable target in Pierre Garcon. All they need is a solid O-line. The Price is Right.

11. Dolphins: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

The Dolphins lack talent behind Kiko Alonso at Inside Linebacker, and with a player who can fill in as on OLB, this Dolphins defense suddenly looks a lot scarier for opposing offenses.

12. Bengals: Isaiah Wynn, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

The Bengals need a utility player who can fill in anywhere on their dreadful O-Line. Wynn can do that, and more.

13. Redskins: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

The Redskins need a new face for the back end of their defense. Sua Cravens needs to complete the transition into a hybrid OLB. Derwin James comes from FSU, which notable cornerback Jalen Ramsey also attended.
I expect big things, and so should you.

14. Packers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

Bad News: The Packers have a lot of needs this offseason. Good News: They'll have a ton of picks to use.
Ward is probably the most talented cornerback in this years draft, and the Packers need this year's Marshon Lattimore to produce similar results.

15. Cardinals: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

Heisman Winner. Dual-Threat. Playmaker. Might be a bust. At this point, Arizona needs a franchise QB, and Mayfield could be that guy. But I personally see a lot of parrallel with Johnny Manziel.

16. Ravens: Arden Key, Defensive End, LSU

The Ravens have T-Sizzle, but for how much longer? Not very long. They need a pass rusher for the future. Key and Mosley will be a powerful duo in the linebacker corps.
