Five quarterbacks – Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson – are pretty much locks to go within the first 32 picks of the draft.
With respected talent evaluator John Dorsey making the pick, the Browns are sure to take a quarterback at No. 1 overall. Allen’s flaws with accuracy are clear and obvious. Sam Darnold (USC), Josh Rosen (UCLA) and Josh Allen (Wyoming) are the other main quarterback possibilities.
It’s the No. 1 question I get asked these days.
In their latest mock, they have the Panthers trading up in the second round with the Raiders in order to get their hands on Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington.
The NFL Draft [VIDEO] is only about a week away and at this point even though they won’t announce it publicly the Browns have to know what they are doing with the number one overall pick. So, yeah, that makes sense. The Vikings will look to add players in this year’s draft to compliment the play of Cousins, especially on the offensive line.
The NFL Draft will be filled with potential franchise quarterbacks, and its possible the Giants take Manning’s successor.
In his senior season, Mayfield threw for 4,216 yards and 43 touchdowns. Josh Allen has that coveted big arm but serious accuracy issues. Darnold, however, is an accurate passer, completing 63.1 percent of his passes in 2017. “I think we came out here and we did that”.
Arizona will be one stop of Mayfield’s tour, which will take him to Cleveland, Buffalo, both the Giants and Jets in New York, Miami and Denver, according to MMQB.
Or they might go with Penn State’s Saquon Barkley, who ran for 3,843 yards and 43 touchdowns in three seasons. “That’s why I try to set them by big guys and little guys”. It could go down in infamous National Football League lore with JaMarcus Russell as catnip for scouts and coaches who love a quarterback who shines in shorts, but not in pads. He drew a lot of matchups against slow, small offensive tackles than he would have in a Power 5 conference. Maybe Payton is right in that most of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft won’t be standing in five years. It is about how quickly they process information, and how quickly they have an answer to get the ball out, make a good decision and be accurate. There aren’t that many General Managers as savvy as Belichick when it comes to the NFL Draft. There are plenty of options for the Patriots and with 2 1st round picks, the Patriots have a chance to really help their defense.
