johneMN's 2018 NFL Mock Draft Picks - Last updated: 04-26-2018

Rnd. ▴ Pick   Team Player Pos. School
1 1Cleveland ClevelandSam Darnold QB USC
johneMN's comments: Currently, the consensus best QB out there. Fill the need and move on with the plan.
1 2NY Giants NY GiantsBradley Chubb DE NC State
johneMN's comments: Loss of Pierre Paul makes this a no brainer unless Darnold is available. They can get a quality RB in the 2nd and add depth to the OL in the later rounds.
1 3NY Jets NY JetsBaker Mayfield QB Oklahoma
johneMN's comments: Rosen, Mayfield or Allen. This choice could change as easily as the weather in Minnesota.
1 4Cleveland ClevelandSaquon Barkley RB Penn State
johneMN's comments: This pick has trade alert all over it, but outside of a trade it will be either Chubb or Barkley (leftovers).
1 5Denver DenverMinkah Fitzpatrick CB Alabama
johneMN's comments: Immediately replaces Talib. Moving back several picks would be preferable as Denzel Ward would be a matching value as he is concidered the best cover CB in the draft.
1 6Indianapolis IndianapolisQuenton Nelson OG Notre Dame
johneMN's comments: Preference in order would be Chubb, Barkley, or Nelson any of which will greatly improve on what is currently there.
1 7Tampa Bay Tampa BayDenzel Ward CB Ohio State
johneMN's comments: DB will be the pick here unless Nelson is still available. I would prefer Vea here and then trade back in the later part of the first to pick up a quality DB like Oliver, Hughes or Jackson.
1 8Chicago ChicagoTremaine Edmunds OLB Virginia Tech
johneMN's comments: As a Qb is to the offense so is this LB. Though only 19, with physical tools becomes an Urlacher like force for the Bears in the future.
1 9San Francisco San FranciscoRoquan Smith ILB Georgia
johneMN's comments: Although EDGE may be viewed by some as the more important selection. The BPA would be Smith or James.
1 10Oakland OaklandDerwin James S Florida State
johneMN's comments: Lot of help needed in the defensive backfield. James takes a significant step in improving that.
1 11Miami MiamiVita Vea DT Washington
johneMN's comments: Too good to be true for the dolphins after the loss of Suh. Look at RB or LB in the 2nd round.
1 12Buffalo BuffaloJosh Allen QB Wyoming
johneMN's comments: Allen become the QB of the future. McCarron should provide enough productivity to prevent Allen from starting immediately.
1 13Washington WashingtonDa'Ron Payne DT Alabama
johneMN's comments: Payne gets paired up with Jonathan Allen again and the DL takes a big step forward with his versatility both on the edge and inside.
1 14Green Bay Green BayMarcus Davenport DE UTSA
johneMN's comments: Tough choice between EDGE or CB, but the depth of the CB position makes this pick. Another possibility would be LB if Smith or Edmunds should fall, but unlikely.
1 15Arizona ArizonaJosh Rosen QB UCLA
johneMN's comments: Takes the opportunity to get their potential QB of the future. If QB is not taken it would certainly fall to Ridley.
1 16Baltimore BaltimoreCalvin Ridley WR Alabama
johneMN's comments: Free agent recievers are not enough. Ridley has the potential to become a #1 receiver. Will needto get stronger to handle the NFL press CB.
1 17LA Chargers LA ChargersMike McGlinchey OT Notre Dame
johneMN's comments: Quality depth in the DL prospects makes this selection a possibility. McGlinchey provides an upgrade to the OL and helps to preserve Rivers. Jackson at QB is a possibility to look at for the QB spot, but might be a little to early to pick. DL, or QB in the 2nd.
1 18Seattle SeattleJosh Jackson CB Iowa
johneMN's comments: A ball hawk! If speed does become an issue, will move into a S position where those skills can be taken better advantage of.
1 19Dallas DallasCourtland Sutton WR SMU
johneMN's comments: Cowboys quickly get a replacement for Dez Bryant. A big, physical target and mismatch on the outside. Great leaper make him a viable red zone target as well.
1 20Detroit DetroitIsaiah Wynn OG Georgia
johneMN's comments: After signing Blount as a RB band-aid, bolster the interior line and provide some blocking. Harold Landry is a close 2nd on this pick.
1 21Cincinnati CincinnatiJames Daniels OC Iowa
johneMN's comments: Helps to anchor a weak offensive line. Pick may be slightly overvalued. LB's Vander Esch or Evans would benefit as well.
1 22Buffalo BuffaloWill Hernandez OG UTEP
johneMN's comments: Retirement of Igcognito makes this pick a necessity.
1 23New England New EnglandMike Hughes CB UCF
johneMN's comments: Choice between Alexander or Hughes for CB and look at OT later in the round unless McGlinchey is still available.
1 24Carolina CarolinaHarold Landry DE Boston College
johneMN's comments: Fills a huge need to pressure QBs, will look at the RB and S positions hard in the 2nd round.
1 25Tennessee TennesseeRashaan Evans ILB Alabama
johneMN's comments: Provides quality depth in the LB position. Evans gives them that and a lot more of a physical presence. Coverage skills need to improve to become a solid 3 down LB.
1 26Atlanta AtlantaTaven Bryan DT Florida
johneMN's comments: A speedy inside disruptor that's fits the type of athletic defense the Falcons promote.
1 27New Orleans New OrleansLeighton Vander Esch OLB Boise State
johneMN's comments: The Saints need quality depth and production from the LB position. Vander Esch should provide that with his atletician and speed to go sideline to sideline.
1 28Pittsburgh PittsburghDerrius Guice RB LSU
johneMN's comments: Need #1 is to replace Shazier with quality and potential. All of those are gone so a replacement or insurance should Bell cause a financial problem. Should look at Darrius Leonard in the 2nd if available.
1 29Jacksonville JacksonvilleD.J. Moore WR Maryland
johneMN's comments: Very physical and athletic receiver. Could improve on route running, but is a nightmare to bring down after the catch in space.
1 30Minnesota MinnesotaConnor Williams OT Texas
johneMN's comments: Best case scenario would be to move back into the 2nd round early. Solid tackle may be better suited inside.
1 31New England New EnglandKolton Miller OT UCLA
johneMN's comments: New Encgland comes out of the 1st round filling its 2 most important needs. Not convinced they will move up into the top 10 for a QB. Its just not their way.
1 32Philadelphia PhiladelphiaTyrell Crosby OT Oregon
2 33Cleveland ClevelandJaire Alexander CB Louisville
johneMN's comments: Help is needed to completer the defensive backfield and Alexander can play outside or the slot.
2 34NY Giants NY GiantsSony Michel RB Georgia
2 35Cleveland ClevelandD.J. Chark WR LSU
2 36Indianapolis IndianapolisSam Hubbard DE Ohio State
johneMN's comments: Colts get a consistent and steady Edge players
2 37Indianapolis IndianapolisNick Chubb RB Georgia
johneMN's comments: Complimentary work horse. Short yardage and 2 down back. Mack becomes the change of pace 3rd down guy.
2 38Tampa Bay Tampa BayMaurice Hurst DT Michigan
2 39Chicago ChicagoIsaiah Oliver CB Colorado
2 40Denver DenverRonald Jones RB USC
2 41Oakland OaklandLorenzo Carter OLB Georgia
2 42Miami MiamiLamar Jackson QB Louisville

2 55Carolina CarolinaJustin Reid S Stanford
2 56Buffalo BuffaloDallas Goedert TE South Dakota State
2 57Tennessee TennesseeBraden Smith OG Auburn
johneMN's comments: Interior OL line needs help Braden Smith is solid and probably an early starter.
2 58Atlanta AtlantaQuenton Meeks CB Stanford
2 59San Francisco San FranciscoMichael Gallup WR Colorado State
johneMN's comments: Under ratedreciever that catches everything.
2 60Pittsburgh PittsburghOgbonnia Okoronkwo OLB Oklahoma
2 61Jacksonville JacksonvilleChukwuma Okorafor OT Western Michigan
2 62Minnesota MinnesotaRasheem Green DE USC
johneMN's comments: Flexibility again prevails as Green will be able to move inside on passing downs.
2 63New England New EnglandKyle Lauletta QB Richmond
johneMN's comments: Pulls the trigger on a backup for Tom, will look for TE in the 3rd round.
2 64Cleveland ClevelandOrlando Brown OT Oklahoma
johneMN's comments: Replacement for Joe Thomas. Brown drops down here due to his combine performance which is not sipportedby his game tape where he ws a brick wall.
