2018 NFL Mock Draft: Bills move to get Josh Allen, Browns fill three important needs

The NFL Draft is less than a week away, meaning it's time to start working on your 2019 NFL Mock Drafts. Oh, and it's time to get your designs for 2018 while you still can, so in that sense, here's my final mock draft before the real thing happens.

Each selection in this final form is guaranteed 100% for a player selected by a team in that position. They all will be the player who was also at the head of the team.

Seriously, it's almost always harder to make a sham design at this time of the year, because the closer we get to the design, the more misinformation there is. You hear many things, but you can never be sure what is real, or what is a smoke screen. My philosophy, then, is not to outsmart myself and use common sense to find out what is most likely for each team.

So, without further ado, my final ridicule design from 201

8 and if you want to find out how the whole design works, look at R.J. White seven-round dummy design .

. 1 Cleveland Browns

Sam Darnold, QB, USC : It was rumored that Josh Allen could be the type, but I thought Darnold was the QB Cleveland wanted all the time, and I change not from now on.

. 2 New York Giants

Saquon Barkley RB, Penn State: I have doubts about whether or not we see an RB so high, and the Giants could get out of this spot. I do not see them taking a QB, and Barkley paired with Odell Beckham would make this Giants offense much more dangerous than it has been in the last few years.

. 3 New York Jets (from IND)

Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma : I originally believed that Josh Rosen was meant for the jets, but in recent weeks I have heard more and more of the jets at Mayfield.

. 4 Buffalo Bills (CLE Mockery)

Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming : Our first sham. Available with all, the Bills move up to grab it, giving Cleveland their two first-round picks and others who play no part in this mocking draft.

. 5 Denver Broncos

Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State : It's possible that the Broncos might go with Josh Rosen if they like him, but I think it was Allen who always interested them. With him, the Broncos went to another pass rusher next to Von Miller.

. 6 Indian Colts (by NYJ)

Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame : I had slotted Chubb for the Colts in the last Mocks, but he's off the board here, so the Colts prefers the player to be his could be the safest in this class.

. 7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Derwin James, S, Florida State : I think Tampa would have a hard time betraying James' versatility and the high ceiling at this point.

. 8 Chicago Bears

Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia : The Bears have a need on the corner and could address this, but I think LB is the more pressing need.

. 9 San Francisco 49ers

Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State : Many consider Ward the best cover corner in this design, and that's certainly something the Niners could use.

10th Oakland Raiders

Harrison Phillips, DL, Stanford : Phillips is the first surprise of the day. He is talented, versatile and will help Oakland in advance.

. 11 Miami Dolphins

Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech : The dolphins might trigger Josh Rosen here, but I do not think they're willing to give up Ryan Tannehill. Instead, they will address a need for LB.

12th Cleveland Browns (BUF Mock Trade)

Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB, Alabama : Well, that works pretty well for the Browns. There were a lot of fake designs that put Fitzpatrick in 4th place. Here he falls on her at 12.

13. Washington Redskins

Vita Vea, DL, Washington : The line of defense could be Washington's most pressing need, and Vea gives the skins an anchor in the middle.

fourteenth Green Bay Packers

Marcus Davenport, DL, UTSA: He may be a bit of a project, but his blanket is too high for the Packers to drop him off at this point.

15th Arizona Cardinals

Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA : The last time a QB from the Los Angeles area "slipped" in the draft for the Cardinals, things did not go that well. Maybe the second time will be the charm.

sixteenth Baltimore Ravens

Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama : The Ravens need help with WR, and they find the best WR in their class on their doorstep.

17th Los Angeles Chargers

Connor Williams, OT, Texas : The fact that the first OT from the board is in 17th place tells you everything you need to know about this year's OT class.

18th Seattle Seahawks

Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU : I do not know what the Seahawks will do here. If you sign Dez Bryant, I do not see this pimple happening, but Sutton may be the recipient of the big body and the target of the red zone this attack needs.

19th Dallas Cowboys

Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama : I'm torn between Dallas's Evans and a DL at this location. It would be best to address one of these issues.

20th Detroit Lions

Harold Landry, DE, Boston College : I can not help believing that Matt Patricia is here with a pass rusher.

21st Cincinnati Bengals (by BUF)

Maurice Hurst, DL, Michigan : As long as there are no medical concerns, I think the Bengals are jumping over Hurst's talent.

22nd Cleveland Browns

Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame : In this scenario, the Browns end up getting their QB, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and a possible substitute for Joe Thomas in the first round.

23rd New England Patriots (by LAR)

Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA : The Patriots address their offensive line with the first of their two first-round picks.

24th Carolina Panthers

Will Hernandez, G, UTEP : I had the Panthers here in earlier mock scenes, but their inner OL is a more pressing need.

25th Tennessee Titans

Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia : It's a run on guards! I would not be shocked if Tennessee decides to go with an LB or Edge Rusher when Hernandez is off the board.

26th Atlanta Falcons

Da Ron Payne, DT, Alabama : Atlanta needs help on its line of defense, and Payne has already scored touchdowns at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, so I think it's fate.

27th New Orleans Saints

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville : This would be a good place for Jackson. He is not ready to jump into the NFL and play and spending time under Sean Payton and Drew Brees would be ideal.

28th Pittsburgh Steelers

Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville : Daddy John is as proud as two Louisville Cardinals go back to back.

29th Jacksonville Jaguars

Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma : The combine was a problem, but if you see the band, there's a lot to like.

30th Minnesota Vikings

Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa : The Vikings could go in a number of directions here because they have no obvious need. Jackson offers quality insurance in secondary school.

31st New England Patriots

Mason Rudolph, QB, Patriots : I think they are made for each other. After trading with Garappolo, the Pats need a heir to the throne Tom Brady knows, and Rudolph fits in with what New England is looking for.

32nd Philadelphia Eagles

Mike Hughes, CB, UCF : Consider him replacing Daryl Worley.
