NFL Mock Draft #2 2018

Cause things change all of the time.

1. Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold – USC QB: Browns have Tyrod Taylor and will bring Darnold along slowly.

2. New York Giants: Josh Rosen – UCLA QB: Eli is getting older and needs replacement.

3. New York Jets: Josh Allen – Wyoming QB: Allen reminds of Carson Wentz and the Jets did not trade up not to get a quarterback.

4. Cleveland Browns: Saquan Barkley – Penn State RB: Best player in entire draft. Barkley was actually used lightly at Penn State which is good for the Browns long term.

5. Denver Broncos: Bradley Chubb – North Carolina State DE: Chubb is just too good to pass up/

6. Indianapolis Colts: Harold Landry – Boston College DE: Landry isn’t huge, but his quickness causes troubles for big offensive tackles. Great pass rusher and surprising against the run.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Minkah Fitzpatrick – Alabama S: The Bucs need help in the

secondary and Fitzpatrick can play corner and safety.

8. Chicago Bears: Quenton Nelson – Notre Dame OG: Best offensive guard to come out in ages and too good to pass up for a team with offensive line issues.

9. San Francisco 49ers: Calvin Ridley – Alabama WR: The 49ers could use some speed and talent at wide receiver and Ridley brings that.

10. Oakland Raiders: Derwin James – Florida State S: The best pure safety in the draft and the Raiders could use some help back there.

11. Miami Dolphins: Baker Mayfield – Oklahoma QB: Dolphins really don’t have much at quarterback and Mayfield may be a strange pick, but he is productive.

12. Buffalo Bills: Lamar Jackson – Louisville QB: The Bills desperately need a quarterback and Jackson may have issues, but he can play.

13. Washington Redskins: Da’Ron Payne – Alabama DT: Incredibly strong and great run stuffer which is what Skins need.

14. Green Bay Packers: Mike McGlinchey – Notre Dame OT: The best tackle available and the Packers line has issues.

15. Arizona Cardinals: Mason Rudolph – Oklahoma State QB: Like most teams, the Cards need a quarterback and Mason Rudolph is better than some think.

16. Baltimore Ravens: Hayden Hurst – South Carolina TE: An older guy, Hurst was once a minor league baseball player. Great athlete at tight end and good pass receiver.

17. Los Angeles Chargers: Vita Vea – Washington DT: The Chargers have great pass rushers on the outside, but could use help in the middle and Vea is a beast.

18. Seattle Seahawks: Denzel Ward – Ohio State CB: Hawks lost Richard Sherman and could use the next corner and the Ohio State Buckeyes corners seem to be really good and plenty fast.

19. Dallas Cowboys: Courtland Sutton – SMU WR: Really big, and talented home town guy. The Cowboys love home state guys unless they are a Texas Longhorn.

20. Detroit Lions: Mike Gesicki – Penn State TE: The top tight end at the combine in athletic

ability. Gesicki ran a 4.55 and 40 inch vertical. He is a talent.

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Tremaine Edwards – Virginia Tech LB: Steal at this position, an absolute steal. Edwards is big, strong and fast.

22. Buffalo Bills: Connor Williams – Texas OT: The Bills need help everywhere, but Williams is a good offensive tackle that can help.

23. Los Angeles Rams: Roquan Smith – Georgia LB: Very physical inside linebacker that could help the Rams inside immediately.

24. Carolina Panthers: DJ Chark – LSU WR: The Panthers need a big, physical receiver and Chark is a play maker.

25. Tennessee Titans: Lorenzo Carter – Georgia LB/DE: Carter underachieved at Georgia for the most part, but he is big and fast and can make plays when motivated.

26. Atlanta Falcons: Harrison Phillips – Stanford DT: This choice might surprise some, but put on his tape and watch him dominate. A nose guard that led the team in tackles is uncommon and Phillips is good.

27. New Orleans Saints: Dallas Goedert – South Dakota State TE: Very talented small school tight end. Some think he will be the first tight end taken and he just might be. Personally, I like Gesicki and Hurst.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Christian Kirk – Texas A%M WR: An extremely talented receiver and the most dangerous return man in the country, probably.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars: Rashaan Evans – Alabama LB: Jaguars can use some help at linebacker and Evans is a steal here.

30. Minnesota Vikings: Brian O’Neill – Pittsburgh OT: Maybe some will scoff at this choice, but O’Neill is a former tight end that still runs like one. He is still learning and growing into the position and a very talented young man.

31. New England Patriots: Josh Jackson – Iowa CB: The Patriots could use some secondary help and Jackson is a good pick here.

32: Philadelphia Eagles: Leighton Vander Esch – Boise State LB: Vander Esch is a very outstanding athlete that can play either inside or outside and will help the Eagles’ defense.
