Notre Dame NFL Draft Mocksourcing: Nelson, McGlinchey, St. Brown

quenton nelson

In 2017, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly finally went against his pass happy ways and committed to the run game. Why? Because he had two future NFL studs on the left side of his offensive line, and he set up not just the rushing attack, but the offense itself to play to the strengths of the Fighting Irish.

Tackle Mike McGlinchey and Guard Quenton Nelson paved the way for what was certainly a top ten, maybe top five run game in the nation. In just a week from tomorrow night, we’ll find out where both of these big boys will be balling professionally. With Nelson, there seems to be a very positive consensus- he won’t last beyond the top ten, and looks very likely to be selected top five.

2018 NFL Mock Draft 4-18-18

dallas-cowboys-kennedy assassintion

Welcome to the 2018 NFL mock draft. Team needs were more taken into account for the 2018 NFL mock draft, as the NFL free agency market has seen a whole lot of major moves. We’re just eight days away now from the NFL Draft at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

What will happen at Jerry’s World/The DeathStar? Our best projections follow below.

With only 32 picks to go around, yes, there will be a guy or two that you feel very strongly should be a first rounder, but got left out. Sorry, but it’s inevitable. Also, many of you will strongly disagree with the projections here, and with the write-ups, but try to be respectful about it in the comments section.

2018 NFL Draft Attendees: Where All 22 Could Get Selected

Only 22 players were invited to the 2018 NFL Draft, and for those that made the cut, the future looks very bright indeed. We’ve since updated our 2018 NFL Mock Draft, in the wake of the attendees list being announced.

Getting named to this short list is about as good as it gets in terms of NFL Draft stock, as it’s the highest indicator possible of first round potential. It also provides a glimpse into who has the best odds of being selected first overall. Like an online casino, trying to project who gets selected where, is fun and engaging, because it’s so unpredictable.

In fact, sports books do take bets on which players will be drafted where.

2019 NFL Mock Draft 4-4-18

nfl-draft

It’s version 1.0 of our 2019 NFL mock draft. The order is completely randomized at this point. Don’t read anything more into the order than that. The 2018 NFL Draft has not been taken into account, as it obviously has not transpired yet! We did not figure our 2018 NFL mock draft selections into this mock either, as that’s kind of overkill- engaging in that kind of behavior.

However, if you want to see the 2018 mock, go to this link. Team needs were sometimes, but mostly, not taken into account, as it’s still absurdly early for a 2019 mock draft in the truest sense. Really, it’s more of a glorified prospect list at this point, to be honest. Have issues with the mock draft picks? Of course you do! Someone always does- have at it in the comments section. Just keep it classy and professional! Enjoy!

Saquon Barkley, Sam Darnold Battling to be Top Overall NFL Draft Pick

saquon barkley

Saquon Barkley had a monster scouting combine, and that elite “underwear olympics” performance, combined with his stellar body of work on the field, has made the Penn State running back, the current favorite to be selected #1 overall in the NFL Draft next month.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a back taken first overall, and coincidentally it was a Nittany Lion- KiJana Carter taken first by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1995.

The NFL has gotten away from taking tailbacks at the very top of the draft, instead focusing on passers, pass-rushers, and pass defending specialists. Yes, the cliche is certainly true- “it’s a pass first league.” If it’s not Barkley who goes first, it could be USC quarterback Sam Darnold, who had been the favorite to go #1 most of the season.

By John O’Leary

When our favorite old-school football players left the field for the last time, some dropped out of the spotlight, choosing to lead quieter lives. Others do everything that they can to stay in front of the camera, seeking careers in entertainment, either acting or becoming a sports commentator. Still more get their moments in the spotlight in negative ways, such as felons on the evening news.

If you’ve ever wondered what happened to your favorite players after retirement, keep reading to learn about four famous former players and the lives that they lead now.

Pete Carroll, Charles Barkley, Mark Cuban Respond to Trump UGLINESS

pete carroll

Friday night Donald Trump held a campaign rally for an election that he already won 10 months ago. At the rally he called Colin Kaepernick, and other NFL players who don’t stand for the national anthem, “sons of bitches.”

Therefore he also called mothers of NFL players “bitches” in the process. Naturally and deservedly, he’s getting a ton of blowback for such hateful and divisive commentary. Chicago Bears Team Captain Akiem Hicks called Trump out on Saturday.

Brian Kelly Has Apparently Had Enough DeShone Kizer Questions

The noted American poet laureate Anthony Kiedis once rhetorically asked “how come everybody want to keep it like the Kaiser?!” in the 1991 Red Hot Chili Peppers hit, “Give it Away.” Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly essentially implied how come everybody want to ask about the Kizer in his response on a media teleconference Sunday afternoon.

Former Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer, who left school early to declare for the NFL Draft last season, was a second round pick by the Cleveland Browns. It was recently announced that Kizer won the Browns QB1 job, so he’ll open up under center against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers a week from today.

Welcome to the 2018 NFL mock draft. Order was based on an amalgam of NFL power rankings from across the internet. If you have issue with the order, well so do many others. That’s what the comments section is for! Just keep it above board and professional in your criticism.
