NFL Mock Draft: Complete first round after pro days, trades

NFL Mock Draft: Complete first round after pro days, trades

They can take a developmental quarterback and have him sit behind Manning like the Packers did with Rodgers and Favre. The Minnesota Vikings have a lot of great pieces in place heading into the 2018 season but could use a few tweaks and upgrades to help them get over the hump that stopped them past year.

I included the "they must draft a QB" option in this poll because it would be unfair to leave that option out when so many Bills fans are set on the team getting that next best thing at QB.

According to the NFL's draft value chart, the No. 3 pick is worth 2,200 points, while the No. 32 pick is worth 590 points.

Lamar Jackson to be a top 15 pick? That's likely why ESPN's Todd McShay has the team selecting the former Heisman Trophy victor with their No. 11 overall pick. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times breaks this pick down very well.

Three picks. Three quarterbacks go off the board. Odom quickly developed into a solid starter at right tackle, though his career was cut short by a back ailment.

With all of that being said, the Broncos have done significant work on the quarterbacks in this year's draft - Darnold, Allen, Mayfield, and Rosen in particular.

It's an enviable position for Licht to be in.

Russia, Fearing Retaliation, Jamming US Drones in Syria, Officials Say
Tensions in the Middle East escalated even higher early Monday with an airstrike by unknown warplanes against a Syrian airbase. According to the U.S president, Syria is not willing to allow any independent inspection of the site of the attack .

This would be an impressive haul for Gettleman, even if it does not include a potential franchise quarterback of the future and passes on what many believe to be the top overall prospect in this draft, in Barkley.

I'm not saying that the draft isn't important. And Licht has shown considerable fourth-round drafting acumen.

For Oakland, the choice is really simple, and it has been displayed among mock drafts all over America. A local product out of New Jersey, Turay is now projected as a late 2nd/early 3rd round pick. If that does happen, Baltimore will likely get to pick a player high up on their draft board.

"And again, I think it's a strong group in the secondary in this year's draft class". Primarily a left tackle with the College, Durant earned All-CAA Third Team honors three straight seasons, doing so last season as a senior despite playing just six games. At least four of the first picks of the day were traded in each of those 10 years.

Vikings need to protect the investment made in quarterback Kirk Cousins. "Everybody wants to take about the first-round pick but you can make some hay in the other rounds, too, moving up and back". Most people will agree that offensive line and nickel cornerback are the team's two biggest needs but after that it gets interesting.

That's the scenario Ravens fans should be hoping for come that fateful Thursday night.
