Interstate of Green: 7 Member Mock Draft 1.0

Rich Wilhelm @koda522

1 Browns- Saquon Barkley (This speaks for itself, Barkely is the best athlete in this draft and it is not close. Team him with Tyrod, Gordon, Landry, Coleman, Njoku and out) 2 Giants- Josh Rosen (In my opinion Rosen fits the Giants much more than Darnold. If I had a comparison for Rosen it would actually be Eli Manning) 3 Colts- Bradley Chubb (Colts have Luck coming it’s time to bolster the defense with the best defensive player in the draft. This is all a prime trading spot if the Colts want to trade down) 4 Browns- Sam Darnold (Even though Tyrod is the QB1, Browns still need a QB of the future. Drafting Darnold here will give the Browns flexibility and let Darnold sit and learn) 5 Broncos- Josh Allen (Allen seems like the prototypical no nonsense QB Elway loves. Think Mayfield is too risky for Elway and will go with the kid with upside) 6 Jets- Baker Mayfield (Broadway Baker is officially home. Baker crushes the QB competition in almost every category and if not for his demeanor he’d be a top 2 candidate. Baker proves his doubters wrong and aced every interview up to this point. Jets have their QB of the future) 7 Bucs- Minkah Fitzpatrick 8 Bears- Quenton Nelson 9 49ers- Derwin James 10 Raiders- Denzel Ward 11 Dolphins- Roquan Smith 12 Bengals- Vita Vea 13 Redskins- Marcus Davenport 14 Packers- Jaire Alexander 15 Cardinals- Lamar Jackson 16 Ravens- Connor Williams 17 Chargers- Tremaine Edmunds 18 Seahawks- Will Hernandez 19 Cowboys- Calvin Ridley 20 Lions- Leighton Vander Esch 21 Bills- Da’Ron Payne 22 Bills- Orlando Brown 23 Rams- Josh Jackson 24 Panthers- Christian Kirk 25 Titans- Mike Hughes 26 Falcons- Mike McGlinchey 27 Saints- Taven Bryan 28 Steelers- Ronnie Harrison 29 Jags- Hayden Hurst 30 Vikings- Isiah Oliver 31 Patriots- Harold Landry 32 Eagles- Rashaan Evans

1. Browns: Sam Darnold – QB – USC a. Best QB in the draft as of now (didn’t throw at combine) barring anything strange at his Pro day I don’t think Josh Allen overtakes this spot 2. Giants: Saquon Barkley – RB – Penn St a. Best player in the draft. As much as they need O-line and QB of the future he’s a hard player to pass up. 3. Colts: Quenton Nelson – G – Notre Dame a. Not a sexy pick, but the injury concerns of Andrew Luck come from him taking a lot of hits. I’ve heard chatter that some people consider Nelson to already be a HOF candidate… while that’s a tad early I think he’s a home run 4. Browns: Minkah Fitzpatrick – DB – Alabama a. They’ve needed Secondary help for a long time 5. Broncos: Josh Allen – QB – Wyoming a. I think he did enough to surpass Rosen in rankings at the combine. Lots of upside, used to cold weather. (note subject to change should the Broncos sign Cousins) 6. Jets: Baker Mayfield – QB – Oklahoma a. Broadway Baker has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? This kid is a winner, really accurate, and doesn’t have the injury concerns that Rosen does. Although Rosen is a better pure passer (Subject to change should the Jets sign Cousins) 7. Bucs: Bradley Chubb – DE – NC State 8. Bears: Calvin Ridley – WR – Alabama a. Trubisky needs weapons despearate 9. 49ers: Tremaine Edmunds – LB – Virginia Tech 10. Raiders: Denzel Ward – CB – Ohio St. 11. Dolphins: Roquan Smith – OLB – Georgia 12. Bengals: Orlando Brown – OT – Oklahoma 13. Redskins: Josh Allen – QB – UCLA a. Replacement for Cousins/Understudy for Smith 14. Packers: Mike Hughes – CB – Central Florida 15. Cardinals – Connor Williams – OT – Texas 16. Ravens – Mike McGlinchey – OT – Notre Dame a. I don’t expect the Ravens to stay here. They usually trade back 17. Chargers:Vita Vea – DT – Washington 18. Seahawks: Josh Jackson – CB  19. Cowboys: Da’Ron Payne – DT- Alabama 20. Lions: Rashaan Evans – LB – Alabama 21. Bills: Lamar Jackson – QB- Louisville 22. Bills: Will Hernandez – G – Texas El Paso 23. Rams: Courtland Sutton – WR – SMU 24. Panthers: Christian Kirk – WR – Texas A&M 25. Titans: Harold Landry – Edge – Boston College 26. Falcons: Billy Price – C- Ohio St 27. Saints: Roquan Smith – OLB – Georgia 28. Steelers: Ronnie Harrison – S – Alabama 29. Jags: Dallas Goedert – TE- South Dakota St 30. Vikings: Derwin James – S- Florida St 31. Patriots: Isaiah Oliver – CB - Colorado 32. Eagles – Mike Gesicki – TE- Penn St.

Alberto Torres @GoodellRafi Cleveland Browns- RB Sanquan Barkley New York Giants- QB Sam Darnold Indianapolis Colts DE Bradley Chubb Miami Dolphins- QB Baker Mayfield Trade Alert- (Cleveland lands it's potential # 1 Wideout in Jarvis Landry after drafting a once in a generation back in Sanquan Barkley. AJ McCarron gets weapons at his disposal, Miami get their QB. Miami gets 4th overall pick in 2018, Cleveland gets Jarvis Landry, 11th overall pick, 3rd round pick ( # 73 ovr), 4th round pick ( #130 ovr). Denver Broncos QB Josh Allen New York Jets G Quentin Nelson (Mason Rudolph falls to jets in 2nd.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Denzel Ward Chicago Bears WR Christian Kirk 49ers LB Tremaine Edwards Oakland Raiders LB Roquan Smith Cleveland Browns (Via Miami) OT Mike McGlinchey Cincinnati Bengals DB Minkah Fitzpatrick Washington Redskins DB Derwin James Green Bay Packers CB Josh Jackson Miami Dolphins TE Mark Andrews Trade Alert- Miami isn't quite finished in day 1 of the draft. Arizona another team that is quite possibly a QB away from contention gets much maligned QB Ryan Tannehill to help Arizona offense. Miami gets a new toy that is all too familiar with their new QB. Expect Miami to trade down in this pick or with the second round pick they own.

Cleveland Browns- Sam Darnold QB USC: The Browns finally after many dreadful years get the quarterback they have always needed. Darnold is arguably the better QB in this draft but I think he needs to be groomed for a year. New York Giants- Quentin Nelson G Notre Dame: The Giants could go with the best player in the draft with Barkley or they could even go with a quarterback but none of that would matter if they don’t have an offensive line. Nelson is the best offensive line prospect in the draft and I think the Giants pick him up. Indianapolis Colts- Bradley Chubb DE N.C State: The Colts have many needs, but a pass rusher is at the top of their list. They need to get help on the defensive side of the ball and Chubb could help their defensive line. Cleveland Browns- Minkah Fitzpatrick CB Alabama: The Browns took a quarterback to solve one need, now they will solve another this time on the defense. Fitzpatrick is the best option available and is a playmaker that they need. Denver Broncos- Josh Rosen QB UCLA: The Denver Broncos will fall out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes and will be looking to fill the need in the draft. Rosen is the 2nd best QB in the draft so that should fill the need nicely. New York Jets- Saquon Barkley RB Penn State: This is the perfect fit not because he is the best player in the draft and that he is a Jets fan, but because he thrives on being the best. The Jets will get Cousins, so they need to build around him and they so happen to take the best player in the draft. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Marcus Davenport DE Texas- San Antonio: The Buccaneers defensive line was awful last year and need some life at pass rush. Davenport has been a big surprise all season long and has become the second best DE in the draft. Chicago Bears- Denzel Ward CB Ohio State: Ward is a dynamic player with the tools to play on the inside and outside. He is a little undersized but can make it up with his playmaking abilities. San Francisco 49ers- Tremaine Edmunds LB Virginia Tech: Adding another tremendous linebacker to compliment Reuben Foster is exactly what the 49ers would do. He has a rare blend of speed and athleticism. Oakland Raiders- Roquan Smith LB Georgia: A little bit undersized but he can make plays sideline to sideline and he has a good physical presence. Miami Dolphins- Jaire Alexander CB Louisville: The Dolphins need an upgrade at secondary and Alexander put up a phenomenal performance at the combine. I think he falls to the Dolphins at 11. Cincinnati Bengals- Mike McGlinchey OT Notre Dame: The Bengals need to get younger at the offensive line and McGlinchey makes sense here. Washington Redskins- Calvin Ridley WR Alabama: The Redskins don’t have a strong receiver corp outside of Crowedor, and they need a true number 1 receiver who is an ideal pass catcher. Green Bay Packers- Mike Hughes CB Central Florida: Packers need a corner and Hughes is a physical back that can help boost this defense Arizona cardinals- Baker Mayfield QB Oklahoma: Carson Palmer has retired and now they are looking for a quarterback. Baker will be available at 15. Baltimore Ravens- James Washington WR Oklahoma state: A quarterback heavy draft should make the Ravens consider drafting one because Flacco is getting older but they have other needs as well like a wide receiver. Los Angeles Chargers- Vita Vea DT Washington: A top 10 talent is just way too good to pass up for the Chargers, who needs a good interior defensive lineman. Seattle Seahawks- Arden Key DE LSU: The Seahawks are looking to get younger and are looking to get rid of Michael Bennett. Arden Key makes sense here. Dallas Cowboys- Courtland Sutton WR SMU: Dez Bryant is getting older and doesn’t seem to be as productive as he used to be. Sutton is a 6’4 guy that could be a good addition to this team. Detroit Lions- Taven Bryan DT Florida: A new head coach needs a new toy and why not take a guy who can play anywhere at the defensive line. Buffalo Bills- Rashaan Evans LB Alabama: The Bills have back to back picks and I can see them trying to trade up to get a player. But other than a quarterback, I can see them drafting a linebacker here. Buffalo Bills- Mason Rudolph QB Oklahoma state: This is the pick that they take a quarterback, after failing to move up to get one of the top three they get one in the top 5. Rudolph is better than Allen in my opinion. Los Angeles Rams- Josh Jackson CB Iowa: The Rams are going to look for a corner after letting go Johnson. I think they take Jackson here. Carolina Panthers- Will Hernandez G Texas El- Paso: The Panthers are about to lose Andrew Norwell to free agency and will be looking for a hole to fill on the offensive line. Tennessee Titans- Josh Jackson CB Iowa: The Titans are decent at the cornerback position but lack a true lockdown number 1 corner and I think Jackson can be that guy. Atlanta Falcons- Isaiah Wynn G Georgia: He played left tackle at college, but would be better at guard in the next level. New Orleans Saints- Mike Gesicki TE Penn State: He has been a surprise at the combine, taller than Calvin Johnson, jumps higher than Beckham, this guy is a special player. Pittsburgh Steelers- Leighton Vander Esch ILB Boise st.: The Steelers love the big physical backers and they take another one here. Jacksonville Jaguars- Hayden Hurst TE South Carolina: The Jaguars are possibly losing Robinson to free agency and need a tight end. He may be a little older but I believe has potential. Minnesota Vikings- Da’Ron Payne DT Alabama: After just coming up short in the NFC championship game, the Vikings are going to look to keep building their defense and they go interior defensive line here. New England Patriots- Sony Michel RB Georgia: The Patriots are going to lose Lewis and Burkhead, so I think they take the second best running back in the draft. Philadelphia Eagles- Marcel Ateman WR Oklahoma state: The Eagles will probably lose Torey Smith, and will be looking for a new wide out. At 6”4 he will be the kind of player Wentz will throw at the top shelf for. Alex Hand @hand7alex

Cleveland – Josh Rosen – QB – UCLA 

Saquon Barkley would be the better pick up if DeShone Kizer weren’t so erratic NY Giants – Saquon Barkley – RB I think the new coaching staff (Pat Shurmur & Mike Shula) will shoot for a mobile QB like Lamar Jackson in the second round while grabbing an elite RB in round one Indy – Sam Donald – QB – USC The new coaches in Indy (Frank Reich) are probably still in love with Andrew Luck, but they also want someone who can win games when Luck is injured. Cleveland – Minkah Fitzpatrick – DB – Alabama Similarly to Malcolm Jenkins, Fitzpatrick rotates between free safety and corner but can also cover the run Denver – Josh Allen – QB – Wyoming It just seems fitting that a team that needs a new QB finds one from Wyoming NY Jets – Quinton Nelson – OG – Notre Dame The Jets had a decent amount of success last year with a rag-tag team, so if they can weed through which FAs they need, a guard to cement whoever the next QB will be would be a tremendous upgrade Tampa – Derwin James – S – Florida State A difficult team to pinpoint what’s wrong with them, but Florida teams like getting their players from Florida Chicago – Bradley Chubb – DE/OLB – NC State Sam Acho and Lamar Houston are FA and Chubb is 6’4”, 270; he would be a nice compliment across from the lighter-weight Leonard Floyd San Fran – Da’Ron Payne – DT – Alabama The defensive line has been a patch of weakness for San Fran Oakland – Tremaine Edwards – LB – Virginia Tech NaVorro Bowman is a 29-y.o. free agent and there are enough starters in the secondary to not worry about that position until rounds 2-3 Miami – Lamar Jackson – QB – Louisville Ryan Tannehill is 29, injury prone, and isn’t all that awe-inspiring when healthy; not to mention he’s never taken his team to the post-season and he’s currently the only QB on the roster Cincinnati – Joshua Jackson – CB – Iowa Adam Jones is a 34-y.o. free agent and the other cornerbacks have been struggling to keep pace with him Washington – Arden Key – DE/OLB – LSU OLBs Junior Gillette and Trent Murphy are free agents with age and health not on their side Green Bay – Vita Vea – NT – Washington Supposedly a more complete prospect than Danny Shelton, Vea would fit right in with one of the few remaining teams that operate primarily under a 3-4 defense Arizona – Baker Mayfield – QB – Oklahoma In a perfect world, Arizona would like to get Mayfield in the second round, but considering the other noteworthy QBs have already been taken, the Cards have no choice but to draft him here Baltimore – Calvin Ridley – WR – Alabama The Ravens have no solid WR options for Flacco to consistently rely upon, and if some team wants to pick up Jeremy Maclin, he’ll have even less options to choose from LA Chargers – Roquan Smith – LB – Alabama DC Gus Bradley is forcing the team to fit into a 4-3 base formation and it’s going to require some specific linebackers that can line up “weak” and drop into coverage Seattle – Denzel Ward – CB – Ohio State Ward is going to have some big shoes to fill with the departure of Richard Sherman Dallas – Cortland Sutton – WR – SMU Brice Butler is a free agent, plus not every Dallas fan is sold on the longevity of Dez Bryant so it would be wise to pick up a great talent to prevent a potential injury plagued season from falling apart at the seems Detroit – Mike McGlinchey – OT – Notre Dame The Lions have starters at tackle, but McGlinchey is hard to pass up on; especially if you’re the type of football team that regularly fails to make it to the playoffs despite having ample talent across the board Buffalo – Donte Jackson – CB – LSU The Eagles and Bills swapped Jordan Matthews for Ron Darby and it’s pretty clear who got the better deal. Lacking secondary help, the Bills can get an instant upgrade with Jackson Buffalo – Billy Price – C – Ohio State I think the Bills will deal one of these picks, but in any event, the Bills have lost Eric Wood to retirement so a new center is in order LA Rams – Sony Michel – RB – Georgia Finding another RB to keep the insane snap count low on Todd Gurley would be ideal for keeping this team playoff bound Carolina – Equanimeous St. Brown – WR – Notre Dame Tennessee – Hayden Hurst – TE – South Carolina Atlanta – Taven Bryan – DT – Florida New Orleans – Rashaan Evans – LB – Alabama Pittsburgh – Marcus Davenport – DE – Texas-San Antonio Jacksonville – Christian Kirk – WR – Texas A&M Minnesota – Ronnie Harrison – S – Alabama New England – Carlton Davis – CB – Auburn Philly – Nick Chubb – RB – Georgia It is very possible that Philadelphia signs neither Blount nor Sproles to a contract extension and Jay Ajayi is still going to need someone to take the edge off outside of Corey Clement
