Default 2018's First GML Mock Draft

1. Buffalo Bills (from Cleveland Browns)
QB Josh Rosen, UCLA
- That's right, the Bills trade their first round picks and some to move up for the most pro ready QB.

2. New York Giants
QB Sam Darnold, USC
- Giants parts way with Eli Manning, barring a trade for a veteran QB with this pick like Matt Ryan or Tom Brady, they'll have their next franchise signal caller.

3. Indianapolis Colts
RB Saquan Barkley, Penn State
- It's en vogue now to take RBs high in the draft, depends on if you believe he'll turn into the nightmare that was Ki-Jana Carter... silly first name -check, from Penn State -check-.

4. Cleveland Browns(via Houston Texans)
QB Josh Allen, Wyoming
- Smaller school product that is both athletic with a powerful arm. Definitely fits the QB mold that their new head coach is use to, but Baker Mayfield is also an option here.

5. Denver Broncos
QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma
- They land their guy and can move on from the parade of QBs that just start, now that they have an actual starter. Broncos will be happy to take a third for Trevor Siemen.

6. Miami Dolphins (from New York Jets)
DE Bradley Chubb, NC State
- Arguably the top prospect over the past year. The Dolphins move up by swapping with their division rivals to add some bite to their rush. The Miami GM has a love affair with top DE products over the years.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
WR Courtland Sutton, SMU
- The WR signings didn't help out as much as they hoped this past season and look to give Winston some more weapons.

8. Chicago Bears
WR James Washington, Oklahoma
- Yes they need a WR.

9. Oakland Raiders(pending coin flip)
CB Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama
- They drafted a CB pretty high once, I think he turned out ok. It's ok though, they nab an Alabama corner this time around, SEC tested and true.

10. San Francisco 49ers(pending coin flip)
WR Calvin Ridley, Alabama
- They got some young assets to trade away to build a ready to "win now" team, but they'll add the safest WR for Jimmy G to throw to. Of course they could go out and get Matt Ryan, or bring in their own pivot by nabbing Mason Rudolph.

11. New York Jets (from Miami Dolphins)
QB Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma
- Jets didn't get their offensive coordinator they wanted, so they fall in line with plan Z and bring in a big pocket passer who fits their new offense.

12. Cincinnati Bengals
QB Lamar Jackson, Louisville
- They choose to move on from Andy Dalton.

13. Washington Redskins
DE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Oklahoma
- Someone lost a scrabble game, and accidentally sent in the remaining letters instead of their draft card.

14. Green Bay Packers
LB Raquon Smith, Georgia
- More talented added to a defense that had to fire Dom Capers... because he was Dom Capers.

15. Arizona Cardinals
OT Orlando Brown, Oklahoma
- Because lineman have no value in the GML, the Cardinals take BPA and let you know it. However they're really going to add Josh Jackson and strengthen that defensive backfield.

16. Baltimore Ravens
DE Marcus Davenport, UTSA
- Great size and athlete at the DE position, they're getting older on defense and the Ravens want to continue their tradition.

17. Los Angeles Chargers
TE Mark Andrews, Oklahoma
- Chargers want to bring in a strong TE tandem, especially with a creaky Gates. They saw what Philly did last season with their TE depth and bring in the top prospect in the draft.

18. Cleveland Browns (from Seattle Seahawks)
RB Sony Michaels, Georgia
- Tired of their Phillips breaking down, they go out and get an impressive Sony that shined brightest when he needed to. Yes they really wanted Barkely, but ended up just Shutting up and Jam. Seahawks pick first in the second round.

19. Dallas Cowboys
DE Arden Key, LSU
- They need more defensive help and grab a SEC End, choice.

20. Detroit Lions
DT Vita Vea, Washington
- Mo'town adds Mo'talent in the middle of their line.

21. Cleveland Browns (from Buffalo Bills)
DT Da'Ron Payne, Alabama
- They've got a guy that can rush from last years draft, so they'll make it easy on him by adding some beef and talent to the middle with their early 20s picks.

22. Cleveland Browns (from Buffalo Bills (from Kansas City Chiefs))
DT Maurice Hurst, Michigan
- Similar to what they did in GML FA last year.

23. Los Angeles Rams
OT Connor Williams, Texas
- BPA for the Rams, to keep Goff upright.

24. Carolina Panthers
RB Derrius Guise, LSU
- They have a couple passing catching RBs from last year, but there is a sense that the Panthers GM can't get enough backs.

25. Tennessee Titans
CB Josh Jackson, Iowa
- How'd he slipped down to here? Was he already picked? Maybe it's just a bad first draft, but the Tits are ok with sliding this pick in here.

26. Atlanta Falcons
OG Quenten Nelson, Notre Dame
- Is it a need? Maybe...maybe not. Is the value too good to pass up? Pretty much.

27. New Orleans Saints
DT Harrison Phillips, Stanford
- They continue to add more to the defense to make it as effective as their offense. Though they'll more than likely try to trade up with Brees unable to be tagged.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers
RB Nick Chubb, Georgia
- Not the Chubb he wanted, but issues with Bell could force their hands and land them a back predicted to go in the first round for the past couple offseasons.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars
S Ronnie Harrison, Alabama
- Why not keep adding to a young and ferocious defense, especially in the backfield.

30. Minnesota Vikings
QB Kyle Lauletta, Richmond
- No suitable QB to fill the void and the Vikings justify it with how hot of a prospect Lauletta becomes over the course of the combine and Witlon hating any reality a pick like this could happen.

31. New England Patriots
OLB Harold Landry, Boston College
- They need passrush help, so they will go with a guy that fits their system and not one that will give the scouts a rush.

32. Philadelphia Eagles
CB Denzel Ward, Ohio State
- World Champions + A Denzel = natural choice.

i can guarantee i won't take guice over another certain sec power back that's not in your mock.

i can also guarantee i won't take an rb in the first round unless saquon falls to me. but that's an argument for another day. the way this draft fell, id probably take nelson.

If Lauletta goes top 50 irl it'd be such a crime.
