Mark Sciubba's 2018 NFL Mock Draft: 7 Rounds




Round 3




Mark Sciubba follow @MarkSciubbaDoe Last Updated: April 24, 2018.


  1. Buffalo Bills: Martinas Rankin, OT, Misssissippi State

    The Bills have lost so much on the offensive line that they have to draft multiple guys. Rankin is a very versatile lineman. I think he could immediately find a starting spot at RT in Buffalo.


    Other Buffalo Bills Selections






  2. New York Giants: Brian O'Neill, OT, Pittsburgh

    Another team that without a doubt has to spend multiple picks fixing their line in the Giants. They get a potential franchise LT in the athletic Pitt Tackle.


    Other New York Giants Selections







  3. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama

    Averett is one of the best nickels in the class. The way he plays with an attitude and refusal to back down from anyone is perfect for the culture the Colts want to have.


    Other Indianapolis Colts Selections






  4. Houston Texans: Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina

    Houston with so little picks need to take a best player available approach with their first one. Hurst is seen as the top TE to a lot of analysts and scouts.


    Other Houston Texans Selections







  5. New York Giants: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame

    Giants get a guy to come in and be what they hoped Brandon Marshall would be. St Brown also has the potential of a number one receiver if Odell doesn't stay much longer.


    Other New York Giants Selections






  6. San Francisco 49ers: DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Penn State

    49ers double up on WRs hoping to find a number one guy by playing the numbers game. Neither one of the guys they got in the 2017 Free Agency Period in Pierre Garcon or Marquise Goodwin is a long-term number one guy for Jimmy Garoppolo.


    Other San Francisco 49ers Selections







  7. Denver Broncos: Trent Thompson, DL, Georgia

    Once the most feared defense in the NFL the Broncos we're soft last year. Stopping the run is the first step to changing that.


    Other Denver Broncos Selections






  8. New York Jets: Kylie Fitts, EDGE, Utah

    Jets get Fitts to help them rebuild a front 7 that has lost some serious talent in the last few years. This pass rush needs a face that people fear and Fitts may bring that to the Jets.


    Other New York Jets Selections







  9. Miami Dolphins: Coleman Shelton, C, Washington

    Washington center Coleman Shelton is a plug in play interior offensive lineman. Miami can use better interior play at all three spots.


    Other Miami Dolphins Selections






  10. San Francisco 49ers: M.J. Stewart, CB, North Carolina

    The 49ers get a tough corner to start opposite of Richard Sherman. M.J. Stewart had a great Senior Bowl week too so this is a nice value pick in the third round.


    Other San Francisco 49ers Selections







  11. Oakland Raiders: Derrick Nnadi, DT, Florida State

    The Raiders need to get some big athletic D lineman to help plug up a leaky run defense. A guy like Nnadi will also help get the most out of Mack and Irvin as pass rushers.


    Other Oakland Raiders Selections






  12. Green Bay Packers: Kevin Tolliver II, CB, LSU

    The Packers continue to rebuild their secondary and whole defense for Mike Pettine. You can certainly argue that cornerback is their biggest need in this draft, and while most have the Packers taking a cornerback at 14, I chose to address the trenches in the first two rounds by getting an edge on defense and a new starter at guard in the first two rounds.


    Other Green Bay Packers Selections







  13. Cincinnati Bengals: Armani Watts, S, Texas A&M


    Bengals are one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. They need to add some speed and youth though. Armani Watts is a true Free Safety who can start day one.


    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections






  14. Kansas City Chiefs: Sean Welsh, G, Iowa

    The Chiefs are another very talented roster. That gives them the chance to build a wall for their young QB and RB Duo in the draft. Welsh is another in a long line of well coaches Iowa offensive lineman.


    Other Kansas City Chiefs Selections







  15. Arizona Cardinals: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson

    Cardinals are almost in full rebuild mode. This allows them to take the best player on their board lucky for them that player also fits a big need here.


    Other Arizona Cardinals Selections






  16. Houston Texans: Ike Boettger, OT, Iowa

    Texans make the most out of their limited draft picks by getting a day one starter in Boettger. Ike can play offensive tackle or guard on either side.


    Other Houston Texans Selections







  17. Dallas Cowboys: Wyatt Teller, G, Virginia Tech

    The Cowboy’s Offensive line wasn't the same last year. Adding a quality guard like Teller should help it be the best line in league again.


    Other Dallas Cowboys Selections






  18. Detroit Lions: Duke Ejiofor, EDGE, Wake Forest

    The Lions get someone to start opposite of Ansah and helps shape the defense under new HC Matt Patricia. Detroit runs a hybrid defense with both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes, so they need guys off the edge for both schemes. Ejiofor is the best edge on the board, so they take him here.


    Other Detroit Lions Selections







  19. Baltimore Ravens: Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan

    The Ravens have let far too many quality O lineman walk in free agency. They get Okorafor and hope he can win and hold down the Right Tackle spot for years to come.


    Other Baltimore Ravens Selections






  20. Los Angeles Chargers: Kyzir White, S, West Virginia

    Chargers grand a great safety to build upon that special defense they have. Kyzir White is the top safety on the board.


    Other Los Angeles Chargers Selections







  21. Carolina Panthers: JC Jackson, CB, Maryland

    Fixing the secondary is key if Ron Rivera wants to be the Panthers coach past this season. JC Jackson is one of the top cornerbacks on the board in the third round.


    Other Carolina Panthers Selections






  22. Kansas City Chiefs: Dorance Armstrong Jr., EDGE, Kansas

    Armstrong can come in and be a situational pass rusher for the Chiefs with plans of him eventually being a full time starter. With Tamba Hali gone, Kansas City has no depth behind Justin Houstona and Dee Ford. That's a bigger problem then most people realize.


    Other Kansas City Chiefs Selections







  23. Los Angeles Rams: Micah Kiser, LB, Virginia

    Rams like the Texans, have to make the best of their limited picks. Kiser is a plug and play linebacker.


    Other Los Angeles Rams Selections






  24. Carolina Panthers: Brendan Mahon, G, Penn State

    The Panthers offense is best when they can win the line of scrimmage. The O line has taken a major step back since their Super Bowl run.


    Other Carolina Panthers Selections







  25. Tennessee Titans: Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa State

    The Titans get Mariota a big WR who I believe is one of the most Underrated players in the draft. Lazard could end up being Mariota's top target down the road.


    Other Tennessee Titans Selections






  26. Atlanta Falcons: Mason Cole, C/G, Michigan

    Falcons get exactly what their Offensive line needs in Cole. A tough O lineman who can play all 5 spots on the line.


    Other Atlanta Falcons Selections







  27. New Orleans Saints: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State

    The New Orleans Saints draft a tight end here. An ultra productive tight end with a big catch radius like Goedert could be the last piece to the Super Bowl puzzle in New Orleans.


    Other New Orleans Saints Selections






  28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame

    Adams is another very underrated player in this draft. I think he could be a day one starter in the NFL. In Pittsburgh he’ll just have to be a compliment back to Bell while they decide his future.


    Other Pittsburgh Steelers Selections







  29. Jacksonville Jaguars: David Bright, OT, Stanford

    The Jaguars wanna run the ball 100 times a game. Bright fits in perfectly with that philosophy.


    Other Jacksonville Jaguars Selections






  30. Minnesota Vikings: Will Richardson, OT, North Carolina State

    Richardson gives Minnesota a guy who can compete for a starting job and be a swing back up if he doesn't win it. Minnesota may have their two starting offensive tackles under long-term contracts, but that won't keep them from upgrading at the position.


    Other Minnesota Vikings Selections







  31. New England Patriots: Brandon Parker, OT, North Carolina AT&T

    The Patriots get some offensive line help that they desperately need. I'm not sure Antonio Garcia can recover from the blood clots in his lungs plus Nate Solder is gone.


    Other New England Patriots Selections






  32. Buffalo Bills: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia

    Bills get the future at RB and a year one contributor in Nick Chubb. Shady is still a beast, but Chubb compliments him perfectly and gives Buffalo a successor in the backfield.


    Other Buffalo Bills Selections







  33. Arizona Cardinals: Holton Hill, CB, Texas

    Holton Hill’s love for marijuana is one of the worst kept secrets of the draft. If he can stay off it, he has the ability to be a starting corner in the NFL.


    Other Arizona Cardinals Selections






  34. Houston Texans: P.J. Hall, DL, Sam Houston State

    Hall was a monster at Sam Houston State. He'll be a perfect fit in the Texans front 7.


    Other Houston Texans Selections







  35. Denver Broncos: Duke Dawson, CB, Florida

    Broncos need to replenish their secondary and they get a great player in Dawson while they do it. Dawson gives you depth and seems talented enough to beat out Brendan Langley for the nickel job.


    Other Denver Broncos Selections






  36. Cincinnati Bengals: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State

    Every year there's more and more Andy Dalton nay sayers. Getting a QB like Falk to push him would be a great move for Cincinnati. I'd fully expect for Falk to win the backup job no matter where he goes.


    Other Cincinnati Bengals Selections
