Nine days until the teams are officially on the clock, here is my third replica of the NFL Draft 2018.
There has been much talk in the league that Josh Allen is the choice here, but I still believe that Darnold is the safer choice and the right choice.
If the Giants are indeed determined to land a future Pro Football Hall of Famer – GM Dave Gettleman has said that he's looking for a gold jackard in 2nd place – I think Barkley's the best choice is with this selection.
Mayfield has the presence and accuracy that the Jets are looking for in the QB position.
I would not be shocked if the Browns cornered here, but Chubb is too good to leave. The lack of depth at the edge in this design makes it the logical choice.
In this scenario I was able to see the Broncos trading at this point, but if they stay in 5th place, Allen will fit into the John Elway form at QB.
The Colts roster is in a terrible shape and that makes it hard to see what they are doing here. Ward is the top cover cornerback in the draft and would give Indy a nice duo on the position with Quincy Wilson.
The Bucs need to add more parts to Jameis Winston. Nelson would be a great advantage in both running and passing.
Edmunds starts to get a lot of steam talking to teams around the league. It would not surprise me if he left the board before Chicago votes.
With the 49ers claiming to be "scrutinizing" Reuben Foster's status with the team on charges of domestic violence, Smith should have made an easy decision for GM John Lynch.
Oakland is desperately looking for playmaker in the backend. Fitzpatrick has an ideal combination of versatility, ball skills and intelligence.
Josh Rosen could be the choice here, but Vea suits a more urgent need and he would make an immediate impact.
There's a good chance the Bills will have to act in front of Miami to make sure they land one of the top four signal pagers, but in this case, one of them falls right in their laps.
This is a bit early for Guice, but the Redskins lack a dynamic presence at RB and he would be a perfect fit in this offense.
The Packers have to give some power to their Edge Rush group. Davenport has impressive raw tools.
If the Cardinals do not trade for a quarterback, they must use this pick to land a playmaker on Wideout or Secondary. Ridley is the top guy in his position.
I think the ravens would try to trade back in this scenario. Hurst suits this offensive well, but they can probably land him 5-7 points lower in Round 1.
This would be a dream choice for the Chargers. James is a top 10 talent in this design and a perfect schema fit.
Landry is not the most physical edge defender, but he has natural pass-hushing abilities.
Sutton is popular in HR departments around the league and the cowboys have an urgent need for the broader receiver.
I love the way Hernandez plays the game. His physical, ugly style goes well with the new coaching staff in Detroit.
The Bengals have already added a talented offensive attack in the offseason (Cordy Glenn), but they could use another one. McGlinchey is a day-one starter on the right.
Vander Esch has the size, athleticism and versatility to be a playmaker in the front seven.
Evans would team up with Dont & a Hightower to give the Patriots two very explosive linebackers who can play indoors or out.
Hughes has not tested so well in the NFL Scouting Combine, but he plays very fast and adds value in the second leg.
Daniels is the best center in the design and I think he could handle any of the three interior positions.
Bryan is ultra-shaky and he is exactly what the hawks are looking for in their defense. There's a chance he might go much earlier than this place, but if he's still at the board, I can not see the hawks moving in a different direction.
The Saints' offensive takes them to a whole new level as they have a thrilling ending in the lineup. Goedert has a huge size and athleticism, which is a big advantage in the red zone.
I love Alexander Swag and Ball skills. He can play indoors or outdoors and he is ready to start from the first day.
This pick might surprise some people, but I love Chark's explosiveness and the ability to track the ball in the field. He completes the running game wonderfully.
The Vikings need more help on the offensive line and Wynn is incredibly consistent on tape.
The Patriots do not often make offensive linemen in the first round, but after leaving Nate Solder they have a big hole to tackle.
The Eagles have the luxury of having the best players available. Michel would be a dynamic playmaker in this offensive system.
