2018 NFL Mock Draft 8-24-17



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.

Team needs were not taken into account for the 2018 NFL mock draft as it’s just too early. 2017 NFL Draft picks were mostly not taken into account for our projections.


And yes, with only 32 picks, some guy that you feel should be a first rounder will be left out!

Also, yes, many of you will strongly disagree with projections here, and with the justification, but try to be respectful about it in the comments section. There is no need for name calling and hateful slurs, try to be the adult in the room as you voice your disagreement.

  1. I find it hard to believe that, after weeks of posting your mock draft, you continue to make the same mistake. Cleveland owns Houston’s first-round selection in 2018 by way of the 2017 draft-day trade that brought QB Deshaun Watson to the Texans. You even have Houston selecting a QB with the pick! If you want to be taken seriously on this subject, you need to pay WAY more attention to what is actually going on.

  2. Overall I don’t think it’s too far out of wack. The only things I think I would disagree with would probably be Tennessee taking Gucie as they have two very capable RB’s for a 1/2 punch, so taking a first rounder would be ignoring other needs and there are other best available players too than an RB at 12. My other issue would be Redskins at 26 would be very unlikely in my opinion.

  3. I agee with Rick. You have continued “updating” this mock draft and have ignored the two trades that occurred. It feels like you are mailing it in. Either update with those trades or consider your future mocks as ignored.
