Mock Draft Projection

    The 2018
 Mock Draft:
     Myles Garrett - should be an
     easy pick for Cleveland at #1 overall

      Budda Baker, a favorite
      of this draft site -- underrated
      and should be a first rounder
The Huddle Report:
Best place to keep track
of draft order, team picks,
trade value chart, etc.
Plus - they always have a
fantastic grading procedure
for the best Top 100 and
Mock Drafts on the net.
      Deshaun Watson - in a not so
      spectacular QB class, this is one
      shining star that could become an
      NFL starter.
       With the draft four months away, we are at a stage where the underclassmen players are starting to declare for the draft,
and the idea of projecting is starting to come into focus.  Here's a look at a potential "Top-10" Mock Draft Projection in order
to keep this page warm on an otherwise bitter-cold early January!


Pick Team Player Pos. School
1 Cleveland Browns Saquan Barkley RB Penn State

For the time being, player #1 in slot #1 of the draft…Barkley is a transformational prospect.
2 New York Giants Josh Rosen QB UCLA

Tis' yet to be determined how the QB-crop sorts-out, but here's believing the G-Men get one.
3 Indianapolis Colts Bradley Chubb Edge N.C. State

With some LUCK on Andrew's side, Colts should look to get better and Chubb enhances the D.
4 Cleveland Browns (fr Hou) Sam Darnold QB USC

My early suggested strategy for the Browns is to not crap-shoot at QB w/ that #1 pick, but

rather, take the sure thing (Barkley) & then look QB here at #4; or even trade-up from here.
5 Denver Broncos Baker Mayfield QB Oklahoma

Many will try to tab Josh Allen to this team and this spot, and I like that thought because I'm a

huge fan of Allen; but something makes me think the moxie with Baker will be Elway's pick.
6 N.Y. Jets Josh Allen QB Wyoming

The Jets could be falling into the same mode of constant QB search with pick after pick 

occuring at that position, with utter failure consistent. Allen is a projection and much has to be

proven in the pre-draft process, but he's also my QB1 at this stage and the Jets must find one.
7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Derwin James S Florida State

The Bucs nab a close-by Seminole as a new big-time play-maker for the secondary.
8 Chicago Bears Minkah Fitzpatrick CB Alabama

CB remains a big need for the Bears and if Fitzpatrick were to fall, this would be a great gift!
9 Oakland Raiders Christian Wilkins DL Clemson

If the reunion of Jon Gruden to the Raiders becomes reality, one could see him liking to build

this team in the defensive trenches with Wilkins, a guy whom should go top 10.
10 San Francisco 49ers Quenton Nelson OG Notre Dame

Note:  The 49ers and Raiders will conduct a coin-flip to determine picks 9 and 10 of the draft…

Regardless of picking 9th or 10th, with a team that is really growing, confident and on the rise,

OG remains an area the team could upgrade and Nelson is certainly "top 10 worthy!"
