2018 NFL Mock Draft


To me, there's only one person when it comes to NFL drafting and that's Mel Kiper. Mel puts up a big board and then he does a mock draft. Everyone else in the mock draft business is copying an industry Mel Kiper basically started.

So, using only Mel's big board and my knowledge, I'm going to try a mock draft, like the other basement-dwelling Trolls (like Todd McShay) and compare it to the other professionals. Afterwards, I'm going to grade how well everyone did. Not on the quality of the picks, but if I (and the professionals) guessed right.

I don't know why I don't like Todd McShay, but I don't. I was reading an article on cleveland.com about McShay's hit or miss ratio today when it comes to Quarterbacks in the NFL Draft. I had to respond and.....

And again blocked.

Editor's Note: Addendum April 25, 2018

Since cleveland.com has a reporter in the Browns building, basically 365 days a year, they only have to get the first pick right. And according to the cleveland.com reporter, the first pick is.....

How did I pick my 2 choices? I just picked the guy most experts agreed on at 1 and the best guy on the board at 4. If I was picking for the Browns, I like that kid from Louisville, Lamar Jackson. But what do I know?
