Top 10 2018 NFL Draft Prospects

Its April, and now its time to get draft crazy... which go in depth on every player that's projected in the first round based on speculation.

The Top Ten

1 Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

Electric, explosive and very shifty. Barkley reminds me a lot of superstar Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Barkley can also receive, and in this way he can extend his responsibilities in the offense to a slot receiver. He does a little bit of everything, and because of the renaissance of top running backs being selected high started a few years back, Barkley should be the grand prize in next week’s NFL Draft. P.S. TAKE HIM IN YOUR FANTASY DRAFT!

I love the rookie risky picks, but exactly does Barkley go #1 is the question I can't wait in one week for fate to decide who is the best section at uno.

The hot sexy pick of the draft that some argue is the best player of this entire class. My biggest con that concerns if I'm half of the teams that need a starting running back is brace yourself because there is a Penn St. curse with those who fall in the first round. Care to hear some of these names if they sound very familiar... Ki-Jana Carter, Curtis Enis, Blair Thomas, Curt Warner of Seattle, & D. J. Dozier. Beware... if he ain't the next Larry Johnson or Franco Harris I feel bad on the wasted opportunity.

He's going to be amazing in New York.

Better build in the trenches then, not everyone can be great with an atrocious line like Barry Sanders.

2 Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State

A projected top 5 pick... that has a chance top play for either the Giants, or the Colts based on needs alone, but realistically this a top defensive lineman not to pass up on based on his breaking records from NC State.

I see him doing pretty well, especially alongside players like Miller. Denver is so lucky that he fell to #5.

3 Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame

There are a lot of team that need that elite caliber like Guard, and Nelson fits the criteria for many who are valuable at running the football this would include teams like Lions, Giants, Buccaneers, Colts etc. He fits as a great best player available that is worth a try.

4 Derwin James, S, Florida State

The stock in taking a Seminole has worked pretty well in this recent decade alone, and the talent at safety has grown, and got much more better in the backfield with the likes of Keanu Neal, Jamal Adams, Landon Collins, Eric Reid, Haha Clinton Dix, & Harrison Smith Derwin James could be the next be player of that position based on history.

How on earth did he fall to #17? He was projected as a top ten pick. I think it was because of the trading frenzy and the qb blitz. Buffalo trading for Josh Allen, New Orleans trading for Marcus Davenport, Draft night has been chaotic so far, surprising too, and who knows what we’re in for next.

Great steal for the Chargers who definitely needed a safety based on the roster cuts they suffered in the secondary.

5 Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

Who was the last great Roll tide Wide Receiver that changed the game of his position... you guessed it Amari Cooper and Julio Jones. Calvin Ridley is clearly the best one of all of those in his perspective of college lineage. Anybody who needs an upgrade in that area like Ravens, Redskins, Cardinals heck a possible trade from the Dolphins who don't have that great of weapons around them. Multiple interest in a guy like can be a play maker given a chance.

6 Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

This was probably the most difficult for me to really sit down, and digest what is the best quarterback based on all of the other 5 up on the board... in the end I like Josh Rosen the most. Its hard to trust Josh Allen who came from Wyoming which doesn't seem like a good pick one bit, Sam Darnold based on all the media, and the way he played his final year I'm not impressed. Baker Mayfield can be a great player, but his attitude is enough for me to say destined to be a Cleveland Brown. Finally there is the wildcard Mason Rudolph who looked highly well with Oklahoma St finishing solidly. Overall if I'm wrong it is what it is I look at it like based on how that college is treated I have trust in Rosen from UCLA.

I think he'll do better than Allen.

Unfortunately though his gotta battle against two mediocre QB's to earn his rightful start in week 1.

7 Vita Vea, DT, Washington

I like his name for starters, and next his pretty quick for a defensive tackle which could oppose, and transition into a much more compelling nose tackle. There are many teams missing that middle piece that could use a guy like Vea.

8 Mike McGlinchey OT Notre Dame

The best tackle in the draft, and if he can protect good on the weak side I say mission accomplish if that line can hold in the passing game efficiently. Guilty party would include teams like Packers, Patriots,

9 Joshua Jackson, CB, Iowa

This one is kind tough between Jackson, and Ward who play slightly different... I prefer Jackson based on size difference there is times you have a 5'11 caliber like player against say a 6'5 monstrous receiver tell me how you can defend against that... exactly.

10 Roquan Smith LB Georgia

One of the biggest stars from the bulldog team that surprised many by going as far the championship game... he can be a vital hand outside the middle, and in it.

The Contenders

11 Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

The Heisman trophy from 2 years ago I feel is going be way like Terrelle Pryor, a Guy who was great when he was a leader for the Cardinals, but in the NFL he may transition into what I'm hearing at best a Wide Receiver. I'd be careful with this selection he is a wild card.

Best qb in the 2018 class. The team that drafted him is laughing all the way to the bank.

Signed- 3 years from now

12 Sam Darnold, QB, USC

I see him being a project pick at best... I feel he is way too highly rated on a lotta boards even early on odds. From what I know he doesn't wanna play for Jets, nor Browns which could there be a John Elway type move we could see in the draft?

Darnold’s entire game is predicated upon his ability to create. Darnold is an athletic player; he is able to pull the ball down and gain chunks of yardage with his legs. His agility and change of direction catch many defenders off guard.

13 Royce Freeman, HB, Oregon

He'll probably be a late round 2 to early round 3 pick at best... his got the tools to be maybe like Kareem Hunt, and I'm not discounting he has talent either. Teams that could use this Oregon speedster would be Lions, Seahawks, Jets, Raiders etc.

14 Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA

I've heard a lot of positive things about this Davenport ascending up the 1st round even near the mid teens. Could be that Haason Riddick like pick that I like in a way. A good edge rusher to have for depth or as a starter perhaps, and freakishly tall opposing 6'7 feet potential nightmare train.

15 Minkah Fitzpatrick, S, Alabama

Awe right the other safety who doesn't play a strong position from the roll tide gang. Plays like a quality safety if James is off the board out comes the next safety on deck.

16 Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma Baker Reagan Mayfield is an American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League.

He can be a great player as long as he doesn't get drafted by the Cleveland Browns, he does draw some red flags based on his history of arrest that came from a party he went to perhaps, and that's where I fear he might be the next Brown, Anywhere else to me you have a fair chance.

This guy is going to be a massive bust. The Browns strike again!

17 Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

''Sunny Make a splash.'' I'm the opposite in this case Josh Allen gives me bit of a Bo Callahan vibe. The stats are not all that, if he goes number 1 it might as well be picking Alex Smith. Now granted he got better in his career, but does Cleveland really wanna waste that pick on Allen?

He's probably going to be a bust and probably will be gone in 2 years. He's probably going to be the next Ryan Leaf.

He seems quite average to me, but I'll likely be proven wrong.

18 Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma

I heard just recently he scored poorly in the combine which might hurt, but then again you fail, and yet have a solid NFL career not always, but there is a chance for Brown.

19 Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, DE, Oklahoma

Sleeper edge rusher selection that I feel is somewhat of a huge burst pursuit.

20 Arden Key, DE, LSU

Here's what maybe a solid all round defensive player who would add good depth to a roster in need from around 20-32 pretty much the other half of the 1st round.

21 Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State

Projected in the 2nd round this Ohio Buckeye could be a big steal I like wherever he goes could make maybe an immediately impact.

22 Harold Landry, LB, Boston College

An outer edge rusher who can disrupt plays with the right style of defense of course.

23 Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech

His got an intimidating size for a linebacker to make me believe his worth the teens area, and most likely falls in the lap of Bears, maybe Bengals if they trade up, Titans, & Cowboys all gonna gun for this type of player.

24 Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State

Based on what I've seen from him in college not impressed on bit, a little too short for his size, and can easily be eat by a Julio Jones type Wide Receiver with freak like size.

He had a good combine, but my issue is his height. Would he even be a match for the NFL's best receivers? All in all, I think he's well built, sturdy, and I hope he falls to #14 for the Packers to draft him :)

25 Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU

I love this type of player his got the size, and tools to own the field, and while there is a chance Ridley's stock fall... Sutton looks NFL ready.
