NFL Draft Bible Founder Ric Serritella previews how the top ten selections of the 2018 NFL Draft could pan out come April. The picks are predicated on how the team would be expected to use their selections based on team needs and not necessarily a reflection of the NFL Draft Bible big board.

2018 NFL Mock Draft Top Ten

1. Cleveland – Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming: In true ‘Mistake By The Lake’ tradition, we could see a new GM/HC/QB combo in Cleveland by ’18. 

2. San Francisco – Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB, Alabama: The 49ers are assured to have Jimmy Garappolo back at QB next year with a one-year, $22M franchise tag at the very minimum, hence they can use this pick on a versatile, blue chip prospect on defense.

3. NY Giants – Sam Darnold, QB, USC: All signs point towards hitting the reset button in the Meadowlands, which will most likely include a new franchise signal-caller.

4. Denver – Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State: Look for the Broncos to seek out a veteran quarterback during the offseason, allowing them to utilize this selection on Barkley and eliminate the current ineffective RBBC situation.

5. Indianapolis – Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA: The growing whispers out of Indy suggest that the right shoulder injury for Andrew Luck appears to be career-ending. Current QB Jacoby Brissett is under contract through 2020 for less than one million per year, allowing them to roll the dice on Rosen.

6. Chicago – Connor Williams, OT, Texas: They need to protect the franchise and buy more time for Mitchell Trubisky to pass the ball and Williams will be as good as they come to help fortify the front line.

7. Cleveland (from Houston) – Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson: With the athleticism and explosiveness that Wilkins provides from the interior, placing him in between Myles Garrett and Danny Shelton would equate to pure havoc.

8. NY Jets – Rashaan Evans, OLB, Alabama: Middle linebacker Demario Davis leads the team in sacks with four and a half, the Gang Green defense is rock solid but they must find a way to generate a pass-rush. 

9. Miami – Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma: An opportunity to begin anew for renowned quarterback guru Adam Gase with Mayfield, is a better alternative than continuing with Jay Cutler or Ryan Tannehill. 

10. Tampa Bay – Bradley Chubb, DE, North Carolina State: The Bucs are dead last in the NFL with just 15 sacks through 11 games. Chubb can make an immediate impact in that department.
