Round Table 2018 NFL Mock Draft

1.01 – Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold, QB, USC

Keith Lott says the Browns can’t afford to pass up on another star quarterback and has them grabbing Sam Darnold first overall.

My take: A. Cleveland hopes they have finally found a legitimate franchise quarterback with the first overall pick. Darnold is everything coaches and GMs want in a prospect and it’s no shock he is the first name called. He enters a situation unique to No. 1 overall picks: no passer drafted first overall has ever had the opportunity to sit and learn for a year like Darnold might have behind Tyrod Taylor.

Fantasy Football spin: Darnold should sit in Year One, but should be the first quarterback taken off the board in Dynasty drafts. He’ll be in a good situation with a quarterback-friendly coach. If for whatever reason he ends up starting in 2018, I could see him as a viable QB2.

1.02 – New York Giants: Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

Pick made by Michael Tomlin of SoCalledFantasyExperts.com

My take: C+. I’m torn on this one. On one hand, Barkley is a can’t-miss prospect who should be a superstar in the NFL right away. On the other hand, it’s tough to spend such a high pick on the deepest position of this draft. Barkley may be head-and-shoulders above the rest of his class, but the Giants might be better off taking a dominant defensive player like Bradley Chubb and getting 80% of Barkley’s talent and production one round later in someone like Sony Michel.

Fantasy Football spin: Not the ideal landing spot for Barkley since the Giants offensive line is dreadful, but he’ll make it work. If the Giants get it together offensively, Barkley could have big touchdown numbers. With the plethora of options, Eli has surrounding him, defenses won’t be able to stack the box.

1.03 – New York Jets: Baker Mayfield, QB, Georgia

David Gonos compares a potential Baker Mayfield to the Jets situation to Johnny Manziel joining the Browns.

My take: A. The Jets made a terrible decision trading up to this pick without knowing who they would get, but were rewarded in the end. Mayfield is my favorite quarterback in this class and has huge upside. He’s efficient, accurate, and a big-time playmaker who teammates rally around. His personality may be perfect for the New York media – both if it goes well or poorly.

Fantasy Football spin: The Jets did bring back Josh McCown but I don’t think he’s guaranteed the job. Mayfield will get a fair shot to compete and if he wins, would be an interesting QB2. Unfortunately, he’s throwing to the worst set of pass-catchers in the league and doesn’t have much of a run game to take pressure off of him either.

1.04 – Cleveland Browns: Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C. State

With a quarterback locked up, Keith Lott focuses on why the Browns should draft Bradley Chubb to bolster their defense.

My take: AIf I were the Browns, I would trade this pick (and I bet they will). There a couple quarterback-hungry teams who might need to jump into this spot to get the guy they like. If the Browns do make this pick, I like them fortifying their edge rush with Chubb. Chubb is widely considered the best defensive player in this draft. He and Myles Garrett will wreak havoc on offenses for years to come.

Fantasy Football spin: As long as Gregg Williams stops putting Jabrill Peppers 25 yards off the line of scrimmage, the Browns should field a pretty solid defense. Chubb and Garrett are young but should make each other’s lives easier. The Browns have reasonable talent all over the field and should add more through the draft. I could see them being a mid-tier streamer next year. I could also see them being god awful.

1.05 – Denver Broncos: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

Embed from Getty Images
My take: While Rosen may not have the big-time cannon that Allen has, he has shown far superior vision, touch, and ability as a pocket passer. In a division with Khalil Mack, Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram, and Justin Houston, the Broncos need a quarterback who can function under pressure.

A three-year starter at UCLA, Rosen impressed as a freshman, completing 60% of his passes for 3,668 yards and 23 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. He only played six games his sophomore year due to injury, but bounced back with a strong junior year completing 63% of his passes for 3,756 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.

Rosen does not have many flaws in his game and the biggest questions surrounding him are about his leadership qualities. John Elway and a strong veteran locker room will be able to keep him in check.

The two-year deal the Broncos gave Case Keenum in the offseason shows they only value him as a bridge quarterback. Rosen will sit behind him and learn his first year and seriously compete with him in his second.

Fantasy Football spin: Like Darnold, I don’t think Rosen will play much in Year One. However, I see him as a Matt Ryan type and he should find great success going forward with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos won’t ask him to do too much, but there will be times where he shines.

1.06 – Indianapolis Colts: Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame

Click here to see why Shane Manila has no problem taking a guard with the sixth overall pick.

My take: A+. The Colts’ number one priority this offseason should be to make sure Andrew Luck is healthy. Their number two priority should be to make sure Luck can remain healthy going forward. Sixth overall is high for a guard, but Nelson is an all-time prospect, drawing comparisons to Larry Allen and Logan Mankins.

Fantasy Football spin: If this pick helps Andrew Luck avoid just one more hit per game, it’s great for fantasy football owners this season. The Colts offense was putrid without Luck.

1.07 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Derwin James, S, Florida St.

Embed from Getty Images

Pick made by David Gonos of Davidgonos.com

My take: A. For years, the Buccaneers have fielded outstanding defensive talent but have yet to put it together as a unit. James should be the final piece to help them get over the hump. He’s an athletic rangy playmaker who is also physical enough to be effective in the box. More importantly, he’s an incredible leader who demands respect in the locker room.

Fantasy Football spin: If the Bucs didn’t play electric NFC South offenses six times a year, they’d be one of my favorite sleeper defenses. Even so, the Bucs should have their streamable moments.

1.08 – Chicago Bears: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia

Pick made by Michael Tomlin of SoCalledFantasyExperts.com

My take: C-The Bears fill a need here, but how often is an inside linebacker worth the 8th overall pick? Also, I would have rather seen them take Tremaine Edmunds. Edmunds is a size-speed-instincts freak with limitless upside. It would have been cool to see him fill the shoes of another athletic inside linebacker in Brian Urlacher.

Smith is no slouch though. He won the Butkus Award (nation’s top linebacker) and was a unanimous All-American. He uses a lethal combination of speed and football IQ to diagnose and disrupt plays.

Fantasy Football spin: Will play all three downs and will be a popular pick in IDP leagues given the Bears’ potential bottom tier offense.

1.09 – San Francisco 49ers: Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech

Pick made by Ron Rigney of bigguyfantasysports.com

My take: C+. The same concern about the draft value of inside linebacker applies here. The Niners are in desperate need of an inside linebacker given Reuben Foster’s legal troubles this offseason. Edmunds has the potential to develop into a terror for defenses given his size and speed.

Fantasy Football spin: He won’t be as immediately impactful as Roquan Smith since he lacks similar instincts, but his ceiling is higher. He joins an extremely young, talented Niners defensive corps that could be interesting if they all take a step forward.

1.10 – Oakland Raiders: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State

Embed from Getty Images

The Raiders go with back-to-back first-round cornerbacks from THE Ohio State University. Ohio State has been a breeding ground for cornerbacks in recent years with Marshon Lattimore, Gareon Conley, Eli Apple, and Bradley Roby all being taken in the first round in the last four years.

Ward looks to keep the tradition going. He has good quickness, instincts, and the speed to run with any receiver downfield. He is a man-cover corner who functions well in the slot. This is important because in his first year he will likely line up as the nickel back between Gareon Conley and free-agent signing Rashaan Melvin.

The one knock against him is his height. He can be overpowered or out-jumped by taller receivers. Luckily, the Raiders have Conley and Melvin to battle with the giants. If Ward and Conley develop as well as Lattimore has, the Raiders, with Khalil Mack providing pressure up front, could be scary on defense.

Fantasy Football spin: Ward will solidify a solid threesome of cornerbacks for the Raiders, but I don’t think it will be enough for the Raiders to become a playable unit in 2018.

1.11 – Miami Dolphins: Minkah Fitzpatrick, S, Alabama

David Gonos grabs the most talented player left on the board to bolster the Dolphins’ struggling secondary.

My take: D+If the Dolphins go with Fitzpatrick here, it’s safe to say they still believe in Ryan Tannehill since they could’ve had Josh Allen. Fitzpatrick, at one point considered an easy top-5 pick, is a game-changing safety but doesn’t fit a need for the Dolphins. The Dolphins’ safeties are actually one of the stronger units on their team with Reshad Jones, and T.J. McDonald. After letting Ndamukong Suh go, they have a huge hole at defensive tackle. I would’ve taken Allen or Vita Vea here.

Fantasy Football spin: Fitzpatrick is good, but adding another safety to this defense does not make them an elite fantasy defense.

1.12 – Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

Embed from Getty Images

Things fall perfectly for David Gonos and the Buffalo Bills, as they are able to grab a top quarterback prospect without trading up.

My take: A-. Things couldn’t have worked out better for the Bills. They are able to draft one of the top quarterbacks without trading up. In reality, the Bills are probably the strongest candidate to make a potential trade into the top five.

Allen has struggled with some of the basic aspects of quarterbacking (accuracy, pocket presence, patience), but has the arm-talent to overcome it. He’s the biggest boom-or-bust quarterback in this draft but at pick 12 is definitely worth it for the quarterback-hungry Bills. I’m not the biggest fan of Allen’s and I would have rather taken Lamar Jackson, but getting a quarterback at 12 that some project to go number one overall is pretty good.

Fantasy Football spin: Allen is mostly seen as a project at quarterback, but don’t be surprised if he makes a few appearances this season. The only other quarterbacks on the Bills’ roster are A.J. McCarron (who was signed to a contract worthy of a backup) and Nathan “5 Picks” Peterman.

1.13 – Washington Redskins: Vita Vea, DT, Washington

Pick made by Michael Tomlin of SoCalledFantasyExperts.com.

My take: A. A perfect intersection of need and talent for the Redskins. Washington was 29th against the run by DVOA last year and could use a burly boy to solidify their front-seven. He fits perfectly into Washington’s 3-4 scheme.

Fantasy Football spin: The Redskins actually finished a respectable 13th in DST fantasy points while allowing the most rushing yards last season. If Vea can really fortify the defensive line, the Redskins may be an underrated streamer option this season.

1.14 – Green Bay Packers: Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa

Pick made by Ron Rigney of bigguyfantasysports.com

My take: B-. A bit of a reach for me, but I do like the fit. In an ideal world, the Packers could trade back and still get their Jackson later in the first. The Packers have a few holes they need filled, especially on the offensive line, but there’s nobody worth taking at that position in this spot. They’ve been linked to Jackson recently and it makes sense. Green Bay believes in their ability to develop players and Jackson has the athletic talents to become a top-tier cornerback.

Fantasy Football spin: The Packers have been an overrated fantasy DST for years now and Jackson won’t make enough of an impact to change that in year one.

1.15 – Arizona Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

David Gonos believes Lamar Jackson will continue to thrive as a Cardinal and become of the face of the Arizona’s offense.

My take: A-. I love it. Lamar Jackson has his flaws but, boy is he an exciting player. He has the type of arm-talent and explosive play-making ability that offensive coordinators dream of. There have been a plethora of quarterbacks who have drawn the Michael Vick comparison, but Jackson comes the closest. Bradford is not a sure thing by any means and the Cardinals need to look to the future.

Fantasy Football spin: If in some crazy scenario all the quarterbacks in this draft fell to these respective slots and were immediately made starters, Jackson would by far be my QB1. Rushing quarterbacks are fantasy gold and if something were to happen to Sam Bradford (very likely), Jackson could make an instant impact as a rookie.

1.16 – Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

Embed from Getty Images

My take: Even though the Ravens completely overhauled their wide receiver corps by bringing in Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead, they still could use all the help they can get at the position. All offseason, the Ravens have declared that they are dedicated to getting Joe Flacco more weapons and Ridley would jump-start that group. The Ravens hope he will work out better than the last wide receiver they spent a first-round pick on, Breshad Perriman.

Ridley is the best wide receiver in a weak class and, by all accounts, already pro-ready. He’s a smooth route-runner with enough speed to break big plays and compares favorably to fellow Crimson Tide receiver Amari Cooper. Like Cooper, he would immediately start into a starting position as a rookie across from Crabtree.

As a true freshman, Ridley broke Cooper’s yardage record with 1,045 yards on 89 catches. Alabama’s strong rushing attacks and limited quarterbacks held Ridley back from posting better numbers in his sophomore and junior years, but he still garnered All-SEC nods.

There are some concerns regarding Ridley’s thin frame and if he will be able to beat press coverage in the NFL. He’s also not the best athlete. However, his route running ability, quickness, and hands will allow him to succeed at the next level.

Fantasy Football spin: Ridley is comparable to Cooper, but the Ravens’ offense is not explosive enough for him to replicate Cooper’s rookie numbers (72/1090/6). I would expect something more like what Cooper did in his disappointing third year (48/680/7).

1.17 – Los Angeles Chargers – Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama

Ron Rigney fills a need for the Los Angeles Chargers with run-stuffing big man Da’Ron Payne.

My take: A. Like the Redskins taking Vita Vea earlier in the draft, this pick just makes a ton of sense. The Chargers finished second-to-last in run defense last year and could use a run-stuffing presence like Payne.

Fantasy football spin: The Chargers were already one of the better DSTs in fantasy football last year and Payne makes them even better. They’re a sneaky top-7 unit this year.

1.18 – Seattle Seahawks – Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

Shane Manila tags Derrius Guice as the heir to Beast Mode in Seattle.

My take: FI love the player and the fit, but much like with the Giants and Barkley, I can’t justify taking a running back at this point in the draft — especially with so many other holes on the team. The Seahawks need to invest in an offensive line. This strategy of trying to develop reclamation projects and late-round picks worked for a few years, but now it’s putting the heart of their offense, Russell Wilson, in harm’s way. They’ve also lost Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett, and Cliff Avril this offseason and may lose Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas too. The Seahawks can’t afford this luxury pick.

Fantasy football spin: On the other hand, if this pick is made, Guice would probably be a productive high-end RB2. He’s the most talented back to line up next to Russell Wilson in years. But the same would apply to Nick Chubb, Kerryon Johnson, or Ronald Jones who the Seahawks could get a round or two later.

1.19 – Dallas Cowboys – Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama

Embed from Getty Images

The Cowboys need help at inside linebacker and Michael Tomlin finds them some with Rashaan Evans.

My take: B-. Hard to argue with this pick when the Cowboys lost two starters at inside linebacker this season and only have two (talented) injury risks at the position. I would’ve liked D.J. Moore for them here. With Dez Bryant out of the picture, the Cowboys’ number one guy is… Allen Hurns. Yikes.

Fantasy football spin: The Cowboys DST unit is not one I would ever be particularly excited to start and that won’t change with the addition of Evans. He might be a great IDP player though, especially if Sean Lee and/or Jaylon Smith are sidelined.

1.20 – Detroit Lions – Taven Bryan, DT, Florida

Chris Oertle gets Matt Patricia a defensive building block in Taven Bryan.

My take: B. Not the flashiest pick, but Bryan fills a need for the Lions especially after Haloti Ngata signed with the Eagles. Also, as Chris details in his post, Matt Patricia’s defenses have always been at their best with a stout big boy in the middle.

Fantasy football spin: The Lions were 3rd in DST scoring last year despite allowing the 12th most points. It was a bit of a fluke season and even with the addition of Bryan, the Lions should fall back to the middle of the pack.

1.21 – Cincinnati Bengals – James Daniels, C, Iowa

Tony Reimer looks to re-build the Bengals’ offense starting with the offensive line and takes James Daniels.

My take: B. The pick would be an A since the Bengals really need help up front after letting starting center Russell Bodine go. However, there was a better prospect on the board at the same position. Billy Price tore a pectoral at the NFL combine but should be ready to go by the time football activities resume. He was almost universally considered a better prospect, so I would have taken him here.

Fantasy football spin: Andy Dalton is historically putrid behind bad offensive lines, so shoring that up may give the Bengals’ attack a bit of a boost. I’d bump Dalton, Joe Mixon, and A.J. Green up just a tiny bit with this pick.

1.22 – Buffalo Bills – Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State

Embed from Getty Images

Like the Browns did earlier in this mock, David Gonos fills a defensive hole with his second pick after grabbing a quarterback with his first. 

My take: D+. Vander Esch certainly fills a need for the Bills and Sean McDermott would love to hard a Luke Kuechly-esque player to command his defense. But the Bills just took a young, developing quarterback and should be doing all they can to support him. With the sudden retirement of Richie Incognito and trade of Cordy Glenn the Bills should shore up their offensive line. Will Hernandez or Isaiah Wynn would’ve been my pick here.

Fantasy football spin: The Bills’ potentially terrible offense may make Vander Esch an IDP monster if he can live up to the Kuechly comparisons.

1.23 – New England Patriots – Mike McGlinchey, T, Notre Dame

Chris Oertle is looking for production over sexiness by taking offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey.

My take: A+. With Nate Solder joining the Giants, the Patriots are in dire need of a left tackle and of course, the best one in the draft falls into their laps at pick 23. McGlinchey should be a set it and forget it left tackle in New England for years to come.

Fantasy football spin: The Patriots will be the Patriots. Continue on with your day.

1.24 – Carolina Panthers – Isaiah Oliver, CB, Colorado

With Carolina facing potent NFC South offenses six times a year, David Gonos gets them some help at cornerback.

My take: C-Another situation where the right need is addressed, but the wrong player is picked. Jaire Alexander has been flying up draft boards and is more polished than Oliver, while just as good of an athlete. Also, Oliver is primarily a press-man corner while the Panthers play a zone scheme.

That being said, Oliver comes from a successful line of long, athletic, and talented Colorado cornerbacks and fills a need for the Panthers. Carolina needs cornerbacks after they traded Daryl Worley to the Eagles for Torrey Smith.

Fantasy football spin: The Panthers were good, but not great as a DST last year and Oliver won’t push them over the hump — at least not in his first year.

1.25 – Tennessee Titans – Will Hernandez, G, UTEP

Embed from Getty Images

My take: I spent a lot of time on this pick debating between Hernandez and Isaiah Wynn of Georgia. I have them very similarly rated and I wouldn’t argue if you rated Wynn ahead of Hernandez. However, I ultimately loved Hernandez’ fit on this Titans roster and offense more.

Hernandez is a nasty, powerful, run-blocker and by putting him next to Taylor Lewan, the Titans should be able to bully almost anyone. And while the Titans paid Dion Lewis big bucks, I think at their core they want to maul people with Derrick Henry. Henry running behind those two behemoths would be a scary sight.

Fantasy football spin: If the Titans draft Hernandez or even Wynn, I’m moving Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry up my draft boards. It would signify they are dedicated to pounding defenses on the ground.

1.26 – Atlanta Falcons – Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia

Craig Talley keeps Isaiah Wynn in state as he gets drafted to the Atlanta Falcons.

My Take: D+Again, Wynn is a very good player. He has the flexibility and ability to play all five spots on the offensive line. Unfortunately, there’s just no real need for him in Atlanta. The Falcons had a hole at RG but filled it by signing Brandon Fusco to a three-year deal. Each of Atlanta’s offensive linemen graded above a 76.0 last year according to ProFootballFocus.

The Falcons could have used this pick to address the hole left by Dontari Poe or bolster their pass rush.

Fantasy football spin: If the Falcons drafted Wynn, he wouldn’t significantly upgrade their current offensive line, so there would not be much fantasy football impact.

1.27 – New Orleans Saints – Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota

New Orleans reloads at the tight end position with Dallas Goedert.

My take: B+. I’m not a huge fan of taking a tight end this early, but Goedert is uber-talented and will land in a perfect spot. He also looks a lot like Tim Riggins in that South Dakota uniform and that may have (read: definitely) skewed my analysis of him as a player.

Drew Brees has been missing a playmaker at tight end since Jimmy Graham left. While Benjamin Watson put up decent numbers and the combination of Josh Hill and Coby Fleener has been decent, they aren’t the threat that Goedert would be.

Fantasy football spin: The Saints have so many mouths to feed, I can’t imagine Goedert explodes in his rookie season. He’ll be good for a few games here and there and his numbers at the end of the year will look decent, but he’ll be hard to trust week-to-week.

1.28 – Pittsburgh Steelers – Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State University

Tony Reimer looks towards the future as he tabs Mason Rudolph as Big Ben’s successor.

My take: D. I understand the logic: Big Ben is nearing the end of the line and the Steelers need to prepare for the future. However, the AFC is WIDE OPEN especially with the Patriots seemingly going through some internal strife. The Steelers should strike while the iron is hot and bring someone in that can help them win right away.

A pass rusher like Harold Landry or a cornerback like Jaire Alexander would’ve been a perfect fit.

Fantasy football impact: Rudolph won’t play until Big Ben retires. However, if that’s soon, he’ll be dropped into an offense with Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell — not too bad. If Roethlisberger retires sooner than most expect, Rudolph could pay off big for dynasty drafters.

1.29 – Jacksonville Jaguars – D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland

Embed from Getty Images

My take: For a team that was the laughingstock of the NFL just a few years ago, the Jaguars have a very balanced roster. They’ve done well through the draft and free agency to stockpile talent at almost every position. This offseason though, they let two of their top wide receivers leave in free agency – Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. They are still left with Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, Donte Moncrief, and Keelan Cole. In addition, the Jaguars want to remain a defense and run-game oriented team.

However, they invested heavily in Blake Bortles this offseason as well, handing him a three year, $54 million contract. Bortles is at his best with a multitude of weapons and while most of those receivers are serviceable players, none of them are true number one wide receivers.

Enter D.J. Moore. Moore has been flying up draft boards for weeks and may pay off big for the Jaguars. He caught 80 balls for 1,033 yards and eight touchdowns at Maryland. He’s drawn obvious comparisons to former Terp Stefon Diggs, but is slightly bigger. He can run routes from and to anywhere on the field and he’s a good compliment to the pass-catchers Jacksonville currently has.

Fantasy football spin: Unless Jacksonville chooses to take the reins off Bortles, Moore’s fantasy production will likely be capped. He’ll be better in real life for the Jags than for your fantasy team.

1.30 – Minnesota Vikings – Billy Price, G/C, Ohio State University

Without many immediate needs, Keith Lott beefs up Minnesota’s offensive line with Billy Price.

My take: A. The rich get richer. The Vikings are balanced all over the field, so they can afford to take Price even though he’s not an immediate need. Before tearing a pec at the NFL combine, Price was the top center on the board. He’s not expected to miss any time but has tumbled down draft boards due to this injury.

Fantasy football spin: Nothing but positive for the whole Vikings offense. Kirk Cousins gets a cleaner pocket which will directly benefit him and Dalvin Cook will have more running room.

1.31 – New England Patriots – Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA

Chris Belichek Oertle takes a small school freak athlete at a position of value with something to prove. Sound familiar?

My take: B. Davenport isn’t exactly a need pick, but you can never have too many defensive linemen. He has the ability to be a stand-up rusher and a 4-3 defensive end. Bill Belichek will get the most out of this somewhat raw player.

Fantasy football spin: The Patriots defense picked it up last year after a putrid start but I still wouldn’t trust them as a week-to-week DST. Davenport isn’t enough of a gamechanger to make that difference for me.

1.32 – Philadelphia Eagles – Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

Michael Tomlin and the world champion Philadelphia Eagles take the best player available in Jaire Alexander.

My take: A+. Alexander doesn’t fit an immediate need, but when you’re the Super Bowl Champions and veterans are signing up for cheap to fill holes and play for a title, you don’t have to draft for need. Getting Alexander here is a pure steal. He’s my number two cornerback and a top-20 prospect.

Fantasy football spin: A dangerous Eagles DST gets even scarier. Alexander is a playmaker and even if in his first season he’s just a nickel corner, he might quickly become one of the better ones in the league.

Keep coming back for more! This page will be updated as we continue to make picks…
