Pick #32: Baltimore Ravens (via Philadelphia Eagles) - Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville
The youngest Heisman trophy winner ever is a dynamic player that has great improved as a passer, though he’s still inconsistent with his downfield accuracy. His rushing ability and rocket arm have caused him to be compared to Michael Vick.
Pick #31: New England Patriots - Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
Michel was a star at Georgia for four years, splitting carries with Nick Chubb, and carried the Bulldogs in their Rose Bowl win over Oklahoma. He’s very shifty - but can also be effective running between the tackles - and is a reliable receiver out of the backfield.
Pick #30: Minnesota Vikings - Mike Hughes, CB, UCF
Hughes doesn't have great size and wasn't the most consistent in college, but he's an extremely quick and twitchy player who is also strong and great in press coverage. He's also a tremendous return man.
Pick #29: Jacksonville Jaguars - Taven Bryan, DT, Florida
Bryan is a high-upside prospect who could be a steal at the end of round one. At 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, he may be best as a 3-4 end but can play anywhere thanks to his strength and quickness.
Pick #28: Pittsburgh Steelers - Terrell Edmunds, S, Virginia Tech
Edmunds is a quality prospect with size at 6-foot-1 and 217 pounds. He's great at stopping the run and is a big hitter. While he does have some limitations in coverage, his speed gives him a lot of range on the back end of the defense.
Pick #27: Seattle Seahawks (via Green Bay Packers from New Orleans Saints) - Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State
Penny was extremely productive during his collegiate career, leading the country with 2,027 rushing yards last year. He's great at running between the tackles and, at 220 pounds, is a very powerful runner.
Pick #26: Atlanta Falcons - Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
Ridley was regarded as the best wide receiver prospect in this class even though his stock has dropped due to his age (23) and lack of elite athleticism. He's the best route-runner we've been in some time with good hands and excellent speed, making him a nightmare matchup at just 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds.
Pick #25: Baltimore Ravens (via Tennessee Titans) - Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina
Hurst was South Carolina’s most reliable receiver for the past two years thanks to his good hands and willingness/toughness over the middle of the field. He’ll be a better pro than college player.
Pick #24: Carolina Panthers - D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland
Moore is a versatile prospect with good hands and is excellent with the ball in his hands. He had a breakout year at Maryland, nearly doubling his catches from 41 to 80 as a junior, but hasn’t proven he can consistently produce.
Pick #23: New England Patriots - Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia
Wynn was one of the keys to Georgia's dominant rushing attack and should start right away at the NFL level. He's also big enough to play tackle if need be.
Pick #22: Tennessee Titans (via Baltimore Ravens from Buffalo Bills) - Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama
Evans isn’t your prototypical top-end Alabama linebacker, but he has a ton of upside in the NFL due to his athleticism, ability in coverage, and reliable tackling.
Pick #21: Cincinnati Bengals - Billy Price, C, Ohio State
Price is a strong, smart player who is a center who can play three positions along the offensive line, giving him the kind of versatility teams covet.
Pick #19: Dallas Cowboys - Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State
Vander Esch was incredibly productive during his collegiate career and is extremely stout against the run. Concerns with him come from his ability in coverage, but some teams think he’ll turn into a Brian Urlacher-type player.
Pick #18: Green Bay Packers (via Seattle Seahawks) - Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
Alexander had a great 2016 season before injuries limited him in 2017, but he’s still one of the best pure cover cornerbacks in this class. There are questions about his durability and tackling, but there are no doubts about him in coverage.
Pick #17: Los Angeles Chargers - Derwin James, S, Florida State
James literally played every defensive position for the Seminoles this season, showing his versatility and ability to excel against both the run and the pass. Some teams think that versatility works against him because he hasn’t been able to pick up the nuances of safety, but he’s one of the best overall prospects in this class.
Pick #16: Buffalo Bills (via Baltimore Ravens) - Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech
Edmunds' NFL Draft stock is soaring due to athletic ability plus his size, speed, and age (he’ll be a 20-year-old rookie). He led the Hokies with 109 tackles, adding 5.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, and three forced fumbles this past season.
Pick #15: Oakland Raiders (via Arizona Cardinals) - Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA
Miller is a monster of a man at 6-foot-9 and 310 pounds and is a tremendous athlete. He really needs to work on his technique but is smart and powerful.
Pick #14: New Orleans Saints (via Green Bay Packers) - Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA
Davenport shot up draft boards early in the draft process due to his production in college and a great combination of size and athleticism, though questions remain if he’ll be able to produce at a high level against much better competition.
Pick #13: Washington Redskins - Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama
Payne was inconsistent at Alabama (sometimes due to a lack of effort), but he should step in and be the starter right away. He has plenty of upside due to his insane athletic ability and quickness.
Pick #12: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Buffalo Bills) - Vita Vea, DT, Washington
In three seasons at Washington, Vea appeared in 40 games recording 100 tackles (15 for loss), along with 9.5 sacks, six passes defended, and two fumbles forced. At 340 pounds, Vea is an incredible athlete and regarded as one of the best players in the draft.
Pick #11: Miami Dolphins - Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama
Fitzpatrick played cornerback, safety, and nickel during his time at Alabama and as the ability to play all three at the NFL level. He has been one of the Tide’s best players for each of the past three years.
Pick #10: Arizona Cardinals (via Oakland Raiders) - Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
Rosen had an up-and-down career at UCLA due to injury and poor play around him, but Rosen has proven he is capable of making any throw from the pocket. Many view him as the most NFL-ready quarterback prospect because of that. However, he can make poor decisions when facing pressure.
Pick #9: San Francisco 49ers - Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame
McGlinchey is regarded as the best offensive lineman in the 2018 class but has seen his stock drop due to a lack of athleticism and his struggles handing speed off the edge. Still, he’s extremely strong and is the best tackle in the class.
Pick #8: Chicago Bears - Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia
Smith was the leader of Georgia’s defense during their run to the national championship game, using his sideline-to-sideline range and excellent coverage skills to be the best all-around linebacker in the sport.
Pick #7: Buffalo Bills (via Tampa Bay Buccaneers) - Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
Allen may have the highest upside of any quarterback prospect in this class, though he also has the lowest floor. Despite putting up less-than-stellar numbers at Wyoming (largely due to inconsistent play and a lack of accuracy), Allen has a rocket arm and good mobility that have many thinking he can be a franchise QB.
Pick #6: Indianapolis Colts - Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame
Nelson has an ideal build for a guard with great strength and quickness and is absolutely dominant in the run game. He’s easily the most complete offensive lineman in the draft despite a lack of athleticism.
Pick #5: Denver Broncos - Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State
Chubb is arguably the best edge rusher in the draft thanks to his combination of size, strength, speed, and nastiness. Chubb had back-to-back seasons with 10 sacks and finished this year with 72 total tackles.
Pick #4: Cleveland Browns - Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State
Ward is largely considered to be the best cornerback prospect in this class due to his incredible speed and athleticism. He’s still a little raw and is learning the game but is capable to being a true No. 1 corner.
Pick #3: New York Jets - Sam Darnold, QB, USC
Darnold entered the 2017 season as the clear top prospect but saw his stock fall a bit this year due to turnover concerns. Still, he’s great in the pocket with good mobility and is an absolute gamer. Darnold went 12-0 at home during his career at USC and set the Rose Bowl record for total offense.
Pick #2: New York Giants - Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
The best overall prospect in the class, Barkley can do it all out of the backfield. He outruns defenders on the perimeter but is also capable of running over them at the line of scrimmage and then making them miss in the open field. Plus, he can catch passes and return kicks.
Pick #1: Cleveland Browns - Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
Despite Mayfield’s lack of size at 6-foot-1, he was one of the top prospects in the draft because of his incredible accuracy and playmaking ability. Mayfield became the first former walk-on to win the Heisman trophy this year.
