Two-round 2018 NFL Mock Draft: Broncos take Barkley as QBs go 1-2-3-4 after trading
I mocked the bills that go to # 2 to design a quarterback multiple times, but what if the Giants just refuse to go down? It takes two to the tango, and there's nothing to say that the Giants need to swap their choice if the bills want to overpay.
In this scenario, the Giants' # 1 speculated # 1 quarterback is available, so hang on and take it. The wave effect? After a third quarterback has gone to the jets, the Bills make their way to the Broncos and take their own signal.
That's right: four tips, four quarterbacks.
When the time comes Every year, it's enough that enough teams need a long-term option to create a market for the four quarterbacks who look like they've split up with the competition. If the Broncos miss those four guys, could they make 5-for-5 and take Lamar Jackson?
I do not have this here; Instead, the Broncos end up with the guy many have described as the best overall player in the draft: Saquon Barkley. The wave effect allows the Colts to get Bradley Chubb, which should be a welcome surprise after trading on the # 3 pick and the Bears to land a lightning-fast offensive lineman in 8th place.
 1st Cleveland Browns
Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming. After Sam Darnold's Pro-Day, which featured Jimmy Haslam chatting to Darnold's parents in the stands, everyone wavered to make Darnold number one. After Allen's professional day, which was also attended by Haslam, many turned to making Allen number one. I stick with what I have and think Allen is the preferred choice for the Browns at this point.
. 2 New York Giants
Sam Darnold, QB, USC. I previously had the Giants ceding from this pick so the bills could advance and take a quarterback, but it's starting to sound like the Giants would grab Darnold if it's available. Although this is not exactly an enjoyable choice for Giants fans, I believe this is the best course of action for the future of the franchise.
. 3 New York Jets (from IND)
Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA. The jets' trade-up was about positioning themselves for a quarterback, and if they can find a franchise signal caller here, overpaying is worth a few places higher. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell compares Rosen to Jay Cutler, a quarterback with whom Jets Offensive Coordinator Jeremy Bates has plenty of experience. Roses could be the best solution for the forward movement of the jets.
. 4 Buffalo Bills (CLE Mockery)
Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma. I would not be shocked if Denver takes Mayfield, if he is in 5th place, so the Bills have to target here, if they want to get their type. In this scenario, I have the Bills sacrificing their first round of 2019, and it could cost even more if they buy the Broncos, might be interested in making a deal with the Browns themselves. Throw Buffalo fourth graders this year and call it an overpayment, but the bills get their franchise QB.
. 5 Denver Broncos
Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State The Broncos land Case Keenum as an appetizer at QB, and it's a good thing since the top 4 names could be at the position at the time of selection from the board , I like to add Quenton Nelson as the last part of the offensive line puzzle, but with the Jared Veldheer trade strengthening the unit in the right attack, I will turn to the Broncos who call the player that many people have as their No. 1 overall prospects have this year in Barkley. Sure, the team likes Devontae Booker, but Barkley looks like a generation talent, and adding him and a legit quarterback in an offseason could bring the Broncos back to playoff hunting.
. 6 Indianapolis Colts (from NYJ)
Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State. The Colts should jump for joy if they can get Chubb after returning to 6th place. The NC State Pass Rusher is one of the two or three best players in the draft, and he fills a great need for a Colts defense that changes to 4-3 under new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. A front made up of Chubb, Jabaal Sheard, Henry Anderson and Al Woods might be mean.
. 7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Derwin James, S, Florida State. The Buccaneers are in a perfect position to help their seconds in this selection by either choosing Denzel Ward corner corner, Slot Corner / Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick or James cornerback. I think the security of the state of Florida is the best option for the Bucs because he will be able to tell them what T.J. Ward could not be in the strong safety position. James could quickly become an all-pro-caliber.
. 8 Chicago Bears
Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame. The board may be in the bear's best scenario, with Nelson fulfilling one of the team's biggest needs. Chicago surprisingly rejected the option of Josh Sitton to make the watch one of their most important needs, which were not addressed in this off-season. There is some speculation that he could handle tackle as well, and the bears could use an upgrade on the right side at that location. In the worst case, they have a caged interior lineman with all-per-head.
. 9 San Francisco 49ers
Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama The 49ers still need help in secondary school after the addition of Richard Sherman, who himself has suffered a serious injury. Join Fitzpatrick, who could slip into the slot corner with Sherman and Ahkello Witherspoon at the border, or safe when San Francisco decides he wants to corner Jimmie Ward. However, the Alabama product is a talent you want to defend.
10th Oakland Raiders
Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State. The Raiders see with David Amerson, Sean Smith and T.J. Carrie out the door. Rashaan Melvin was a nice pickup, but Shareece Wright is nothing but depth. Enter Ward, an elite cover-corner that has everything except prototypical size. It will be an excellent slot and should shine in Oakland, where Melvin and Gareon Conley can meet with larger receivers.
. 11 Miami Dolphins
Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia. The dolphins show interest in Smith, one of the design's top linebackers. He would be the long-term starter needed by the team alongside Raekwon McMillan, and the team could make him an instant starter at WILL and try to trade Kiko Alonso with another team where he would fit better. You may also think about leaving Alonso's deal from next season, if nothing else.
12th Cleveland Browns (BUF Scheinhandel)
Vita Vea, DT, Washington. The Browns go down and miss one of the top non-QBs in the Draft in a deal with Buffalo, which will give them an additional first-time record next year. Here they grab Vea, a defensive tackle that will give them the size they had with Danny Shelton, but more pass-rush capability than the former first-rounder ever had.
. 13 Washington Redskins
Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia. The Redskins should try to upgrade the interior of their offensive line with an early selection in this design, and that's about the area where we expect Wynn to disappear from the board. He's not really the size to attack, but he's an excellent blocker who will instantly consolidate the left side of the team's offensive line as long as Trent Williams can stay healthy.
fourteenth Green Bay Packers
Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA. Davenport crashed his hand off the ground at UTSA. Therefore, it would not be completely foreign for him to play outside the linebacker in Green Bay. His best result in the NFL could be a Downliner running from the edge, but with NFL defenses now playing more nickel than their base sets, he would have plenty of opportunity to do just that with a 3-4 team. His massive top is worth picking in the top half of the first round.
15th Arizona Cardinals
Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville. Jackson is not for everyone, but the Cardinals have in Mike McCoy an offensive coordinator who can get the strength of the dynamic interested party under control. Jackson may not always be the best passer in the league, but fortunately he defends an ongoing game with David Johnson and the danger of the QB running at all times. The Cardinals would ideally run for one of the top four QBs, but since they have so many holes in the list, they can not afford to sacrifice the selection.
sixteenth Baltimore Ravens
Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech. The ravens have a great value here in Edmunds, which is only 20 after the draft and this year has as much lift as any other. He's multi-faceted and should be an interesting chess piece for the Raven Defense, someone who can line up inside, or possibly be groomed, next to C.J. Mosley to take down the road for Terrell Suggs.
17th Los Angeles Chargers
Da & Ron Payne, DT, Alabama. The Chargers address the inside of their line of defense after allowing 4.9 yards per carry in 2017. With Corey Liuget starting the year and taking far too much cap-place in 2019 ($ 10.25 million, with a blind score of $ 1.5 million)), Payne comes to not only improve against the run, but also with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram to give the team a fierce pass to third place.
18th Minnesota Vikings (SEA Mock Trading)
Will Hernandez, G, UTEP. The Seahawks have some modifications to do, but on Day 2 they have no picks. The Vikings do not have many needs, but a garish is guard. You can certainly sacrifice your second grader to get up and get one of the best keepers behind Nelson, and Hernandez and Isaiah Wynn will probably not be in 30th place with conscripted teams like the Cowboys, Lions, Panthers and the Seahawks themselves off Minnesota ,
19th Dallas Cowboys
Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State. The Cowboys have turned to the receiver needs with Allen Hurns, and although Calvin Ridley is on the board, I have passed the position. Dallas has shown great interest in Vander Esch in preparation for the draft, and he would be an excellent substitute for Anthony Hitchens, who served as a long-term heir to Sean Lee as a three-down tackling machine.  20th Detroit Lions
Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa. The Lions have reassigned Nevin Lawson and brought Deshawn Shead into the picture, but no one should stop them from selecting a potential starter on the position against Darius Slay should they have the opportunity. Matt Patricia gets a ball-hawk with this pickaxe, which led the nation in the interceptions last year.
21st Cincinnati Bengals (from BUF)
Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame. The Bengals have taken a step to tackle their offensive line issues by taking over the left-hand rig Cordy Glenn from the Bills and heading for that pick. You should continue to expand your position with McGlinchey, who is capable of any attack. He will initially intervene in the right attack, but could switch to the left if Glenn can not stay healthy. However, the drafting of the Notre Dame standard halves the Bengal population to address their row problems.
22nd Buffalo Bills
Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU. The Bills used to trade for a quarterback earlier in this mock, but with the key piece that marks their debut in 2019, they still have all their picks on the first two days of the draft to address their many. Here they go with perhaps the best recipient in this design in Sutton, a tall body receiver that would fit perfectly with the kind of recipients Brandon Beane's old franchise acquired in Carolina. With Kelvin Benjamin, who is no longer under contract, and Zay Jones, who deals with off-field problems, Sutton gives the new franchise team QB a No. 1 goal to grow with.
23rd Los Angeles Rams
Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama. The Rams have spent a lot of resources upgrading their secondary and defensive lines, knocking out linebackers Robert Quinn and Alec Ogletree in this off-season. This makes both linebacker and linebacker more needed for the team to get into the design. Evans is the last blue chip linebacker available, and he fits better with Wade Phillips 3-4 than Ogletree or Mark Barron.
24th Carolina Panthers
Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama. The Panthers hired Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright to help at the receiver position, but none can be mistaken for a No. 1 option. But Ridley, who had a terrible combine and slipped further than anyone expected, would give Cam Newton a potentially excellent # 1 receiver, pushing Devin Funchess back to # 2, leaving Smith, Wright, and Curtis Samuel as strong down options.
25th Tennessee Titans
Harold Landry, OLB, Boston University. Landry is a sporty freak as an edge rusher, but he'll probably be better off if he does not play a big role as a rookie as he adjusts to the NFL and possibly gains weight. That should be good for the Titans, who will have a huge need to work on the next page of Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan to reach free agency. Landry can be a subpackage player in first class and eventually take on one of those starting positions in 2019.
26th Atlanta Falcons
Taven Bryan, DT, Florida. The Hawks do not have many needs, but one point they could target in the first round is defensive tackle, with Dontari Poe signing a one-year contract only in the postseason. Bryan has some J.J. Watts comparisons in spite of lack of college-level statistics, and he laid out similar numbers as Watts at the combine harvester. Defensive Tackle is one of the few needs of the Hawks, and they will be happy if Bryan succeeds.
27th New Orleans Saints
D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland. The Saints should consider receiver, tight end and defensive end with this selection, if Sean Payton is to be believed, unless an unbelievable value presents itself. Since this is not the case, they go with Moore, who should immediately jump in and be a fantastic weapon from the slot.
28th Pittsburgh Steelers
Derrius Guice, RB, LSU. If the Steelers do not commit León Veon Bell to a long-term deal through the draft, it is possible that they will choose Guice, a player with whom they showed great interest in the run-up to the design. It would be fascinating to see if the Steelers turn around and Bell could act after the election of Guice; Could you get the Eagles to send a Jordan Hicks or Mychal Kendricks plus a selection for the talented back? Could you imagine Bell?
29th Jacksonville Jaguars
Freemasons Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State. Blake Bortles has signed an extension that does not necessarily stop him from being the Jaguar's long-term option. With the value at other potential positions worth earmarking, the Jaguars grab Rudolph in the hope that they can develop him into a guy who can set the upper limit for the offensive higher than Bortles has shown
. Cleveland Browns (SEA / MIN Mockery)
Connor Williams, OT, Texas. The Seahawks move down again, picking up # 35 and # 114 and giving them two seconds (including the one received by Minnesota in a previous sham), two-quarters and four-fifths to tackle multiple issues and a bit more to move on the 2nd and 3rd day. The Browns move up to catch a possible replacement of Joe Thomas against the left attack before the Patriots and Eagles have a chance to take him.
31st New England Patriots
Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA. There were not many players who had a better combine than Miller, who set a record for offensive linemen with a 10-foot-1-long jump while also running a 4.95 40 at 310 pounds. Along with the expected fall of Orlando Brown after his sad performance, Miller was able to earn a ticket for the first round of the draft. With the Patriots unable to retain Nate Solder, Miller gives them a potential blinds blocker for Tom Brady.
32nd Philadelphia Eagles
Justin Reid, FS, Stanford. With two possible attack options coming off the board shortly before their election, the Eagles wave at Reid, a security they were reportedly very interested in . Corey Graham is a free agent, so Reid can come in and immediately fill out the third security role for the defense of Philadelphia while giving them a long-term plan if Malcolm Jenkins or Rodney McLeod get too old or too expensive.
33. Cleveland Browns
Ronnie Harrison, SS, Alabama. The Browns have strengthened the rest of their secondaries, but Harrison gives them a great player who pairs with Damarious Randall in safety and puts Jabrill Peppers in a more fluid role.
34th New York Giants
Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville. The Giants are given great value with this talent of the first round to address an area of need.
35th Seattle Seahawks (CLE Mock Trading)
Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn. The Seahawks finally make a decision after trading twice, replacing Richard Sherman in Davis.
36th Indianapolis Colts
Mike Hughes, CB, UCF. The Colts must find a cornerback in the second round, and Hughes is the best player. He also has experience in the zone, which helps in the team's new scheme.
37th Indianapolis Colts (from NYJ)
Billy Price, G / C, Ohio State. Price got injured on the combine and had to undergo surgery, but he should be okay for the start of the season. He should immediately be in a guard slot for Indy.
38th Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Isaiah Oliver, CB, Colorado. The Bucs have reinforced the second early with a certainty, and here they find a long-term starter in the corner in Oliver.
. 39 Chicago Bears
Arden Key, OLB, LSU. Key has the talent of a top 10 selection, but he fought in 2017 and brings off-field red flags. Still, expect a team to be on top of Day 2.
40th Denver Broncos
Dallas Goedert, TE, State of South Dakota. The Broncos add a second playmaker to Goedert, who will give Case Keenum a good chance to pass.
41st Oakland Raiders
Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma Brown's stockpiled fuel after a miserable combine harvest, but he improved on his professional day. The Raiders have a great need for real attack.
42nd Miami Dolphins
Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State. The dolphins met in the Senior Bowl with Gesicki, and he would be an excellent weapon after he blew the doors off the combine.
43rd New England Patriots (by SF)
Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State. The Patriots signed Adrian Clayborn as a freelance agency, but can not give this great value to Hubbard, who could fill a role of Rob Ninkovich with New England.
44th Washington Redskins
James Daniels, C, Iowa. Washington lands a plug-and-play center to replace Long, who did not have the Iowa Pivot blanket anyway. Together with Wynn in the round, this team should be sure about their O-Line upgrades.
45th Green Bay Packers
Donte Jackson, CB, LSU. The Packers must find a cornerback early in the draft and Jackson gives them Elite Speed at the position to mate with Kevin King.
46th Cincinnati Bengals
Martinas Rankin, C, Mississippi State. The Bengals are attacking their offensive line problems over and over again by taking over Rankin, who should fit well in the middle in the NFL.
47th Arizona Cardinals
Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State. The Cardinals need to improve their rigging, and Jones is the best option on the board.
48th Los Angeles Chargers
Uchenna Nwosu, LB, USC. The Chargers helped with the defensive attack earlier, and here they take a talented USC supporter who could give them even more passport hurry from the position.
49th Indianapolis Colts (from NYJ / SEA)
Darius Leonard, LB, State of South Carolina. The Colts have a great need for linebackers who can play in the new 4-3 scheme, and I would be shocked if they did not use a second round pick to get one. Pencil in Leonard at WILL.
50th Dallas Cowboys
Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan. This would be a great value for the cowboys after Hurst had a medical problem with the combine harvester.
51st Detroit Lions
Sony Michel, RB, Georgia. The Lions signed LeGarrette Blount, but that should not stop them from writing a possible long-term answer to this position.
52nd Baltimore Ravens
Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina. The Ravens land a good, tight end to address a position that has been a topic for years.
53rd Buffalo Bills
Frank Ragnow, C, Arkansas. The Bills find their replacement for Eric Wood with Ragnow, who focuses on physicality and leadership.
54th Kansas City Chiefs
Lorenzo Carter, OLB, Georgia. The Chiefs are taking their first decision to upgrade their Edgebreaker, which should eventually become a three-stage starter.
55th Carolina Panthers
Jessie Bates, FS, Wachwald. The Panthers added Da & norris Searcy to help with strong security, but with Mike Adams 37, Bates gives them a long-term option of free safety.
56th Buffalo Bills (by LAR)
Josey Jewell, ILB, Iowa. The bills grab a linebacker who has great instincts and mental strength, even if many consider him too small.
57th Tennessee Titans
Rasheem Green, DE, USC. Finding another 3-4 DE is not the biggest need for the Titans who have re-signed DaQuan Jones, but Green is an excellent spin option at the position that could dominate as Downs' internal rusher.
58. Atlanta Falcons
Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A & M. The Hawks have a great reputation here in Kirk, who can take the place of Mohamed Sanu as soon as the team finishes his contract.
59th San Francisco 49ers (by NO)
Braden Smith, G, Auburn. The 49ers have problems at the guard, where former first round sheets Tomlinson (from the Lions) and Josh Garnett (from the previous San Francisco regime) fought.
60th Pittsburgh Steelers
Malik Jefferson, ILB, Texas. Jefferson would better fit in a 4-3, but with the Steelers needing help in their 3-4 scheme, he's too talented to go.
61st Jacksonville Jaguars
Ronald Jones II, RB, USC. Jaguars have taken a big backslide last year, and here they get a nice addition that can be deadly in small doses at a great price.
62nd Seattle Seahawks (MIN Mock Trading)
Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon. The Seahawks find a possible instigator at Crowsby with the right tackle, and if it comes out, there's a long way to go to resolve Seattle's line problem.
63rd New England Patriots
Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech. With this election, the Patriots find a potential heir to Vince Wilfork just in case Danny does not show up Shelton.
64th Cleveland Browns (by PHI)
James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State. The Browns brought Jarvis Landry, but he's on the franchise day and Josh Gordon is a blow of never playing again. Washington helps strengthen the position.
