Kansas City Chiefs: Way Too Early 2018 NFL Mock Draft

The not-so-thrilling news for Allen should he be selected No. 1 overall - the Cleveland Browns now own the top pick and are expected to take a quarterback. The 2018 NFL Draft class will have a record number of underclassmen in it, and many of them will likely go in the first ten picks.

Cleveland used DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan in 2017, but played at least three quarterbacks in the previous four seasons.

What about Biletnikoff Award victor Washington? Todd and I were talking about it, I said ‘this Vander Esch kid really impressed me, he said he saw it as well. For that reason, many are thinking that the Redskins could end up targeting a quarterback in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. In Daniel Jeremiah's first mock draft, the NFL.com analyst has the Jets landing UCLA star Josh Rosen with the sixth overall pick.

This gives the Colts a wide array of prospects to choose from when they officially get on the clock, though no one is sure how their draft board is coming along just yet. "Coaches want to work with the 6-foot-5 Allen because he has all of the tools". Cleveland's second-round pick past year should have been brought along differently but unfortunately, that won't change the fact that at least one quarterback will be competing with him. If you're taking a defensive player in the first round, NFL teams are looking for game-wreckers - players who sack the quarterback, make plays behind the line of scrimmage or take away the football. The other Big Ten players to be ranked in Kiper's Top 25 are Ohio State's Denzel Ward (No. 9) and Billy Price (No. 18), Iowa's Josh Jackson (No. 20) and Michigan's Maurice Hurst (No. 23). He only played 11 games this year because of injuries, but his projected ceiling is keeping him atop the mock draft it seems.

A loaded Steelers offense can still use a consistent middle-of-the-field presence at tight end, and Goedert has the size and athleticism to be a matchup weapon in the NFL.

McShay named his top pick.

. Meanwhile, in a shocker, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley didn't get selected until the Oakland Raiders at No. 10 overall.
