CFC Top 5 at Every Position for NFL Draft 2018

After years of study and the NFL Combine and all that I have seen of draft available players, these guys are my top 5 at every position starting with the all important quarterback position.


1. Josh Allen – Wyoming: So much resemblance to Philadelphia Eagle’s quarterback Carson Wentz. The Rams and experts went with Cal quarterback Jared Goff, but Wentz has been remarkably great.

2. Sam Darnold – USC: Would have been number one, but too many turnovers and the NFL is much

tougher than college ball.

3. Josh Rosen – UCLA: Fragile, but super talented.

4. Baker Mayfield – Oklahoma: Only size and off field issues keep him from being ranked higher.

5. Mason Rudolph – Oklahoma State: Prototypical NFL quarterback and 4 year starter.


6. Lamar Jackson – Louisville: He’s a quarterback, not a receiver and he may turn out as good as any of them.

7. Riley Ferguson – Memphis: 

8. Logan Woodside – Toledo:


1. Saquon Barkley – Penn State: Rare talent.

2. Derrius Guice – LSU: Very tough runner.

3. Sony Michel – Georgia: Came on strong late as a senior.

4. Nick Chubb – Georgia: Great guy with huge heart and really hard worker and talented.

5. Ronald Jones – USC: Speedy back with great moves.


6. Rashaad Penny – San Diego State

7. Royce Freeman – Oregon

8. Kalen Ballage – Arizona State

9. Nyheim Hines – NC State: Speed, speed, speed

10. Kerryon Johnson – Auburn


1. Calvin Ridley – Alabama: Imagine that, an Alabama player at the top of a list. Ridley is mega talented.

2. Courtland Sutton – SMU: Love big receivers and Sutton is big.

3. Christian Kirk – Texas A%M: If not as a receiver, take him as return man where he is brilliant.

4. DJ Chark – LSU: Big guy and play maker.

5. Deon Cain – Clemson: Big play man.


6. James Washington – Oklahoma State: Mr TD

7. DJ Moore – Maryland:
