CW21's 2018 NFL Mock Draft v2018.01

Recommended Posts

Good pick for the Vikings. Defensive tackle, UT, will be a need with Floyd likely done. There is an OT taken a few picks later that is extremely tempting. I wouldn't be too worried that the Vikings signed two offensive tackles, I think that they'll happily move on as quickly as they can from Remmers in particular if they can get a LT.

Really liking all this feedback.  Really didn't know team needs for several teams, so this gives me a better idea for my next mock.

OG, really? 

Even if one of Cooper, Green or whoever we plug in at LG doesn't work...I don't see us spending another first rounder on the position. Maybe OT so we could slide Collins back to OG, but otherwise I'd expect us to go in a different direction.

I'd say DE, OLB, or depending on what happens with Gathers, TE are looking to be our top needs for next season.

I'll be honest, I love Nelson for Dallas. If Landry is available as he is here, I'd prefer him, but Nelson looks like a difference maker at guard. I think we are going to miss Leary this year...

While I would love to see Barkley play in Shannys offense I don't see the Niners taking a RB that high despite the talent. It's not really Shanny's, our HC, or Turner's, RB coach, style. Throughout their careers they've taken mid-UDFA RBs and turned them into quality NFL players. I get it with Hyde's contract being up after this season and the uncertainty surrounding if we are going to bring him back or not but the Niners sign Hightower who is a Shanny favorite, drafted Williams again hand picked by Shanny and may have found a gem in UDFA Breida.

I assume the Niners are getting a QB through FA or else that would be the biggest need and if that is the case protecting said QB in my mind is our second biggest need. Our OL is pretty bad and could use an upgrade at every position other than LT, however Staley probably only has a couple years left and a replacement could be needed soon. Also bettering the OL will make it easier for said RBs earlier.

Id take Connor Williams at OT, an immediate upgrade over Brown at RT and when the time comes slide him over to LT when Staley hangs em up.

Other possibilities might include a shut down CB or a pass rusher. I'm aware we've drafted 3 DL in the past three years however none of them are your traditional pass rushing specialist/threat every play that other teams have to take notice of and a SAM LB and LEO DE are both still needed in our new 4-3 under scheme. If a WR impresses enough and shows the skills to be a WR 1 in the NFL we could use a player like that as well, preferably taller than  6'0" just add some size to our lollipop gang we have as a WR corps.

Again all of this is subject to change, we'll see what the season tells us.

Where's Jaire Alexander? He's most certainly a top 20 pick. Cardinals 2018 needs: QB, CB, WR, DL, TE in that order.

As Sabo said, QB is a must. Not sure how I feel about any of the top qbs yet but any mock having us taking a QB is good in my book.

I'm good with Rudolph and Washington. Having chemistry at OSU would help ease transition for both and If we're picking that high than Tyrod Taylor isn't the answer 

I'd assume we'd go DB a couple times with our 4 picks in rounds 2 and 3

Would be over the moon with Williams for the Bears...he is an outstanding LT prospect and would fit our zone blocking scheme perfectly.

The Vikings will likely have to replace 3 starters on the OL after this year.  Alex Boone, Joe Berger, and Mike Remmers could all likely be gone or at very least need to be upgraded from.  OL is by far our biggest need and we should probably take at least two in the first three rounds.

Also the draft position is bad because the Vikings will easily be a top 10 team this year.

Browns have no use for a linebacker anytime before round 4.

Christian Kirksey just inked an extension through 2021.

Jamie Collins is on the books until 2020.

Joe Schobert's rookie deal expires in 2019, but if he continues to play as well as he has under Gregg Williams, he'll get an extension after next season.

Mitch Hyatt probably makes the most sense there, because unfortunately Joe Thomas isn't going to play forever.

Quit reading after the 49ers didn't take a QB.

You probably should have kept reading at least until you got to the thirteenth pick.
