The order of this 2018 NFL Mock Draft is random. If you complain about this order, you cannot read!


NFL Draft Recent Links:

  1. Los Angeles Chargers: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Malik Hooker, S

    The Packers spent the No. 24 overall pick on Aaron Rodgers in the 2005 NFL Draft, obtaining a successor for Brett Favre. The Chargers could just as easily find a future replacement for Philip Rivers seven selections earlier. Rivers will turn 37 during the season following this particular draft, so the Chargers will need some sort of long-term plan.

    Josh Allen projects as a potential first-round signal-caller. He has a big arm and can scramble pretty well, but he needs to work on his accuracy next year.

  2. Washington Redskins: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Zach Cunningham, LB

    The Redskins recently spent a first-round pick on receiver Josh Doctson, though he's done nothing thus far. This pick is more about DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, however, both of whom happen to be free agents this spring. The Redskins will need to find a replacement to start across from Doctson.

    James Washington made somewhat of a surprise choice by going back to school; he had a chance to be a first-round this April.



  3. Arizona Cardinals: Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Mike Williams, WR

    The Cardinals have lacked a strong No. 2 cornerback across from Patrick Peterson ever since losing Antonio Cromartie. All of the players they used in that spot struggled this past season.

  4. Detroit Lions: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Sidney Jones, CB

    Ameer Abdullah hasn't proven that he can stay healthy yet. If he endures another injury-prone campaign, the Lions will have no choice but to move on. They could even spend their 2018 first-round pick on a running back.

    Derrius Guice would be a great replacement. Guice hasn't seen as much action as he deserves because he played behind Leonard Fournette. However, he's very talented and would've started for almost every other team in the country.

  5. Houston Texans: Cameron Smith, LB, USC
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): David Njoku, TE

    The Texans made a great pick by taking Benardrick McKinney, but they might be interested in another inside linebacker at some point in the near future because Brian Cushing isn't expected to be with the team much longer.



  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Christian McCaffrey, RB/WR

    I've slotted a receiver to the Buccaneers in the first round of my 2017 NFL Mock Draft quite frequently. Vincent Jackson is pretty much done, so Tampa needs to find a new No. 2 receiver across from Mike Evans.

    Courtland Sutton shocked many by going back to school because had a chance to be a first-round this April.

  7. Kansas City Chiefs: Byron Cowart, DE, Auburn
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): DeShone Kizer, QB

    The Chiefs currently have three talented edge rushers, but Tamba Hali won't be in the league much longer, while Dee Ford will see his contract expire one month prior to the 2018 NFL Draft. Thus, Kansas City could be in the market for a new outside linebacker.

  8. Atlanta Falcons: Martez Ivey, G/OT, Florida
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Malik McDowell, DE/DT

    The Falcons have a very strong offensive line, but their one liability is at guard, where an upgrade is needed over Chris Chester. Despite being a guard, Martez Ivey happens to be a top-25 prospect.



  9. Philadelphia Eagles: Brian Allen, C, Michigan State
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Corey Davis, WR

    The Eagles have a glaring issue on the offensive line. Jason Kelce is one of the worst starters at center in the NFL. Fortunately for the Eagles, there are a couple of solid center prospects expected to enter the draft soon.

  10. Tennessee Titans: Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Jamal Adams, S and O.J. Howard, TE

    The Titans had some terrible play at cornerback, so they'll have to sign a high-priced free agent or spend an early-round pick on a player at the position sometime soon.



  11. Seattle Seahawks: Derrick Nnadi, DT, Florida State
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Garett Bolles, OT

    I've written this in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft, but one team thought the Seahawks were going to pick Robert Nkemdiche in the 2016 NFL Draft because of their need for an interior pass-rusher. Here's a solution, two years later.

  12. Pittsburgh Steelers: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Takkarist McKinley, DE/OLB

    Ben Roethlisberger doesn't have much to throw to outside of Antonio Brown if Martavis Bryant fails to stay clean. The Steelers, as a result, could target a receiver early in one of the next two drafts.



  13. Dallas Cowboys: Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Jabrill Peppers, S/LB

    The Cowboys have a great offense because of their offensive line and young backfield. Dez Bryant is also great when healthy. What's missing is a second receiver (or a first when Bryant is injured).

  14. New England Patriots: Jordan Whitehead, S, Pittsburgh
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Adoree Jackson, CB/KR

    The Patriots may want to address the safety position early in the 2018 or 2019 NFL Drafts. Patrick Chung will be an impending free agent in the 2018 offseason, while Devin McCourty will be a few months away from 31 at this juncture.

  15. Oakland Raiders: Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Caleb Brantley, DT

    Latavius Murray is an impending free agent, but the coaching staff didn't want to give him the full workload anyway, so I could see the Raiders spending an early-round selection on a running back.

  16. Green Bay Packers: Harold Landry, DE/OLB, Boston College
    2017 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 2/15): Quincy Wilson, CB

    The Packers have some talented edge rushers, but both Nick Perry and Julius Peppers will be hitting free agency this spring. It's unlikely both will be retained, and Peppers could retire anyway.
