Draft Order NFL: The Cleveland Browns will pick first overall in my first 2018 NFL Mock Draft.

Mark Sciubba's 2018 NFL Mock Draft: Debut

Round 1 Picks 17-32

Mark Sciubba follow @MarkSciubbaDoe Last Updated: May 5, 2017.

  1. Tennessee Titans: Da’Shawn Hand, DL, Alabama

    I don't know why it's taking so long for the Titans to get Jurrell Casey a running mate on the DL but it has. Hand flashed brilliance last year and with a full time Roll in 2018 he can prove he's a first round talent.

  2. Buffalo Bills: Armani Watts, S, Texas A&M

    Unless their really bad I'm 2018 I highly doubt the Bills keep both of their first round picks. I think they and Cleveland will make major pushes to trade up for Darnold if they need to. Watts would be a great pick here. A tackling machine in the backend of the defense with great coverage skills and room to improve Watts has a chance to jump Derwin James to be the first safety selected come next year.

  3. Denver Broncos: Marcell Frazier, EDGE, Missouri

    The Missouri Edge rusher tradition continues. Denver seems under John Elway they always just go BPA. Frazier is a guy who with a strong season can be in the first round discussion come next year.

  4. Miami Dolphins: Chukwuma Okorafor, OL, Western Michigan

    I think Miami is gonna find itself in QB purgatory. Realizing that Tannehill is never gonna be the guy to get them a Super Bowl but being too good to be in position to get one in the draft. They found something special in their run game and they continue to build on that here with the guy whose name will be the most mispronounced come next year.

  5. Minnesota Vikings: Mitch Hyatt, OL, Clemson

    Minnesota is another team that could strongly be in the QB market come next year. If Bridewater returns though and they still want him as their franchise guy getting him good protection will be priority number one.

  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sam Hubbard, EDGE, Ohio State

    Hubbard is one of the dominant pass rushing trio they have at Ohio State that could all be first rounders eventually. Only two are eligible for next years draft though and potential wise I'll put my money on Hubbard to be the guy who reaches his round 1 potential. The Buccaneers also have made building a strong defense a big priority.

  7. Dallas Cowboys: Bradley Chubb, EDGE, North Carolina State

    Dallas could very easily go back to back first round picks on Edge rushers. They've had no luck in the area. I've heard Chubb getting potentially the next Garret or Clowney type buzz. He's got a lot to show to live up to that but regardless he's got first round traits.

  8. Oakland Raiders: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas

    The raiders never got their franchise LB in the 2017 NFL draft. The board just didn't fall to them how they wanted. If Texas has a resurgence year guys like Jefferson are the ones who will reap the benefits come draft time.

  9. Indianapolis Colts: Lorenzo Carter, EDGE, Georgia

    This time last year I had Carter in the first round of my way too early 2017 mock. He has so much potential and is an athletic freak. He just has yet to turn it on. If he does NFL scouts will be salivating about his potential.

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech

    Atlanta continues their theme of getting big athletic corners with Alexander. He has the size and athleticism to play himself into first round status by next draft.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Da'Ron Payne, DL, Alabama

    Cleveland just takes the best player on the board with their second first round pick. Like I said earlier. They'll trade both if they have to for Sam Darnold.

  12. New York Giants: Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State

    The Giants should be in the Cornerback discussion by next years draft. They should be Super Bowl contenders next year and they have what they think can be the QB of the future so it frees them up to get a guy like McFadden here.

  13. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama

    Another guy I think could be the number 1 safety prospect come next year. Alabama will again be stacked in the secondary next year.

  14. Seattle Seahawks: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M

    Seattle finally gets a true number 1 receiver for Wilson. Baldwin is great and has number 1 production but other than him and Graham the Seahawks offensive weapons have been lackluster.

  15. New England Patriots: Daylon Mack, DL, Texas A&M

    Mack can play the roles Vince Wilfork did and be the perfect Patriot for the next 10 years. Pairing Mack up with Malcolm Brown would make it literally impossible to run on the Patriots.

  16. Green Bay Packers: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

    In this mock I have the Packers winning the Super Bowl. They get a guy to sit behind Rodgers and learn to hopefully one day be the next Franchise QB. Mayfield is like a slower but better Johnny Manziel. Unlike Manziel he has heart and leadership skills. If he can play as well as he did last season with less weapons he'll get late first round buzz.
