2018 NFL Mock Draft
Round One (1-20) | Round One (21-32) | Round Two | Round Three
33. Cleveland Browns
Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State
The Browns will be adding talent wherever they can get it, and adding more talent in the secondary is just another box to check.
34. New York Giants
Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan
The QB / Left Tackle first and second round combo used to be a thing, but teams have gotten away from it. For the Giants, it makes perfect sense IF Eli moves on. They simply need to find a left tackle.
35. Cleveland Browns (from Houston)
Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
The Browns might have rediscovered gold with Josh Gordon if he can keep along the path he is on. At the end of the season, he looked like one of the best wide receivers in the league. Christian Kirk is a different sort of WR that could create an excellent receiving tandem for the Browns.
Harold Landry, DE, Boston College
The Colts added a number of linebackers and edge rushers that are seasoned veterans. By getting some young guys in the mix, they can create a smooth transition of talent on the defensive side of the ball, which they haven’t had in years.
37. New York Jets
D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland
The Jets need playmakers on offense, and this draft could be the time to go all in on skill position players. D.J. Moore is everything you want in a player on and off the field.
Taven Bryan, DT, Florida
Even though the Bucs have under-performed this year, they still have a talent-laden team. They need to improve their defensive line and get more pressure on opposing QB’s.
39. Chicago Bears
Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State
The Bears were wise to keep their defense in place, and need to keep adding pieces, especially with the pass rush.
40. Denver Broncos
Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi State
The Broncos got a tackle early in last year’s draft, but still have work to do. The offensive line needs improvement, regardless of who is playing QB, particularly at right tackle.
41. Oakland Raiders
Brian O’Neill, OT, Pittsburgh
The Raiders surprisingly need to do work on their offensive line, and that would have been a crazy thing to say only a year ago.
42. Miami Dolphins
Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP
A strength not long ago, the Dolphins are in need of repairing their offensive line that can’t protect the QB or run block. Sometimes, it is a matter of one missing piece, and that might be the case for the Dolphins.
43. New England Patriots (from San Francisco)
Kyzir White, S, West Virginia
The Patriots are probably going to sit out of any major free agent moves, and replenish their defense with a few prospects early.
Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
Jay Gruden believes he doesn’t need an elite QB to run his system, and could put that theory to the test in the draft if they let Cousins walk. Luke Falk is a highly productive QB that already knows how to go through his reads and shows the intelligence to play in a complext system.
Billy Price, OG, Ohio State
Green Bay needs, once and for all, to make a demonstrative effort to protect Rodgers and build that offensive line. If they hadn’t gone on a running back drafting frenzie in last year’s draft, they might have already had some other pieces in place. Price would be a perfect draft pick for the Pack, as he can play any interior position, and is ready to play from day one.
Jerome Baker, OLB, Ohio State
The Bengals have a lot of talent at various positions on their team, and very lacking in others. They need help at multiple linebacker spots to help complement their loaded defensive line.
Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
Mike White could be one of the late risers during the draft process. Possessing prototypical size, skills, and has a lot of starts under his belt.
Derrick Nnadi, DT, Florida State
The Chargers’s defensive line is providing the pressure that is allowing them to close out games this year (after a very shaky start). If they can continue to build a dominant front, they might be able to make a transition much like New Orleans is doing in the twilight of Brees’ career, where they can win with a dominant defense and a run game.
49. New York Jets (from Seattle)
Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon
The Jets could have a drastically different looking offense next year, and a key component of that would be a new left tackle, that surprisingly, they don’t have to rush in to playing time right away.
50. Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State
Jason Witten will be retiring soon, and the Cowboys would like to not have a tremendous hole at that position when he does. If they can do it now, they might be able to get a year or two of crossover to groom the next possible great Cowboys TE.
51. Detroit Lions
Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia
The Lions are quite probably moving to a 3-4 and will need to readjust their linebacker core. Kiser would be another piece to a young and talented group of linebackers.
52. Baltimore Ravens
Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
Last year the Ravens went heavy on defense in the draft, and their lack of skill position talent cost them through the start of the season.
53. Buffalo Bills
Braden Smith, OG, Auburn
The Bills have a very good offensive line, but an upgrade on the interior could boost the run game, which they want to make the focal point of their offense.
Isaiah Oliver, CB, Colorado
The Chiefs give up far too many plays and have no one across from Peters, who is a gifted corner, but a loose cannon.
Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn
The Panthers’ have never fully recovered from letting their star corner walk, and the secondary could use a boost to keep up with a dominant front seven.
56. Buffalo Bills (from Los Angeles Rams)
Trenton Thompson, DT, Georgia
The Bills are in their second year of their new defense, and that has meant a rebuild of their defensive line. Now they will continue to add players that better fit their scheme.
57. Tennessee Titans
Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
The Titans have done a great job in the last few drafts with a very thoughtful and deliberate acquisition of talent. More help in the secondary is still needed.
58. Atlanta Falcons
Justin Reid, S, Stanford
As the Falcons remember that they have Julio Jones, and try to find chemistry between their QB and OC, their defense needs to do a better job in the secondary, and a rangy safety would be ideal.
59. San Francisco 49ers (from New Orleans)
Quin Blanding, S, Virginia
The 49ers are run by an ex-safety and play in an outdoor stadium in a division with some excellent QBs. San Francisco ideally will want three solid safeties they can use creatively to counter matchup advantages by opposing offenses.
Lorenzo Carter, OLB, Georgia
A team like the Steelers are constantly drafting linebackers, and this year will be no different.
Marcus Allen, S, Penn State
Once the Jags settle on their QB of the future, they are still going to be a defense-centered team that will want to run the ball and control time of possession. Teams like that never stop drafting for the secondary.
62. Cleveland Browns (from Philadelphia)
Dorian O’Daniel, OLB, Clemson
After the Browns address their lack of skill position players, they need to consider how to add more depth to their defense.
Troy Fumagalli, TE, Wisconsin
Nobody loves using TEs as matchup problems more than the Pats.
Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama
The Vikings built a dominant secondary by knowing that you can never have too many good players there. They simply don’t allow themselves to have a weak link.
