2018 Second Round NFL Draft Picks Most Likely to Succeed

You know what this list is about. I’ve done the first round, but now we’re looking at NFL second round draft picks most likely to succeed in 2018.

The Top Ten

1 Derrius Guice

One or two mocks predicted Guice going to the Redskins in the first round. Instead, they got to him in the second round. He was the biggest steal of the second round, and he might find himself as the starting running back to open the season. - PackFan2005

2 Harold Landry

How did he fall to the second round? The Lions had a clear cut path to him, but they chose Frank Ragnow instead. Anyway, the Titans came out lucky. I mean, they got Rashaan Evans and Landry. Their defense will be a monster in 2018 with Landry as a key component. - PackFan2005

3 DJ Chark

Boy, Chark fell from late first round material to a late second round pick. However, based on his combine workouts, I think he’ll be a top rookie wide receiver. He’s also on a receiver needy team in the Jaguars. - PackFan2005

4 Joshua Jackson

Another second round steal for a miserable backfield in Green Bay. He plummeted from being predicted as a first rounder before the combine, to falling out of favor weeks later. He’ll have a pretty good rookie season in a young backfield with veteran mentors. - PackFan2005

5 Mike Gesicki

He’s a physical tight end who will be a force on the field. He’s been compared to Rob Gronkowski, which is a nice comparison. I think he’ll be the top rookie tight end in 2018. - PackFan2005

6 Will Hernandez

He’s lucky to get an experienced mentor in new offensive lineman Nate Solder. He’ll make way for Saquon Barkley in 2018. - PackFan2005

7 Ronald Jones II

After the Buccaneers released Doug Martin, they were in the market for a running back. Ronald Jones is their future in the backfield. - PackFan2005

8 Kerryon Johnson

Helping a bad Lions backfield gives him a chance to become a long term starter. He was pretty good at Auburn, and I can’t imagine him not getting plenty of snaps. Only thing in his way is LaGarrette Blount. - PackFan2005

9 Nick Chubb

Man, the second round saw a lot of quality running backs taken. Chubb was the first of them. He’ll definitely start in Cleveland during the season. Most likely he’ll share snaps with Duke Johnson and the occasional Carlos Hyde. Chubb had a horrific injury at Georgia, and he overcame it in 2017. Can he go further? - PackFan2005

He'll be a very solid running back for what looks like a very exciting offense now. - htoutlaws2012

10 James Daniels

The Contenders

11 Courtland Sutton
12 Christian Kirk

The Cardinals drafted a young target for Josh Rosen. He’ll someday become their number one wide receiver when Larry Fitzgerald retires. - PackFan2005

13 Isaiah Oliver
14 Dallas Goedert
