Hey Guys! This is my third and last mock draft! This one includes a few trades, which I think are most likely. As we all know, everything will come a different way on draft day, so don't take every pick that serious. Have fun with reading my mock draft and please rate it if you like it.

Round 1

1. Browns: Josh Allen, Quarterback, Wyoming

The Browns can't risk not getting their QB of the future. Recent Browns Drafts have shown that trading back in the first round and pick a QB later isn't always the best idea. In my first mock draft I had Sam Darnold first overall, because in my opinion he is the best QB of the draft. But recent rumors said that the Browns go with Allen at No.1 and Barkley at No.4.

1. Get Sam Darnold at 1 and Barkley or Chubb at 4.
2. Pick Barkley at 1 and get the QB of the future at No. 4 overall, because if they go QB on 1 it's possible that Barkley isn't there at 4.

2. Bills: Sam Darnold, Quarterback, USC

TRADE ALERT: Giants receive 6th overall pick + 2nd round pick + 3rd round pick; Bills recieve 2nd overall pick!
A quick look at the current QB situation from the Bills isn't very promising. They aren't happy with AJ McCarron as their starting QB. The trade with the Bengals to get to the 12th overall spot was the first step, the 2nd step will be a trade with the Colts to get to pick 6 and the trade with the Giants is the final step for their next franchise QB.
If the Browns really go for Josh Allen with the first overall pick, the Bills have to get Sam Darnold with the 2nd pick.

1. Only move to 5th or 6th overall pick and get Josh Rosen.
2. Stay at No. 12 and miss out on the next franchise QB.

3. Jets: Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The Jets sold a lot of draft capital to the Colts to make sure they get their next franchise QB. You don't give up three second rounders in the next 2 years to get a RB or DE.
After Josh Allen and Sam Darnold went within the first two picks, the Jets go with the QB which can start right away. Baker Mayfield is the most pro ready QB in my opinion and could be the right QB for the rebuilding Jets.

1. Sam Darnold if he is still on the board.

4. Browns: Saquon Barkley, Running Back, Penn State

With their first pick, the Browns got their franchise QB and because of another QB driven draft they get their favourite player in Saquon Barkley with the 4th overall pick.
Barkley is without a doubt the best player in the draft, because of that there is also the possibility that he goes 2nd overall to the Giants if they choose to not trade back.

1. If Barkley is off the board, they will go with Chubb I guess.
2. Get Barkley 1st overall and get a QB at this spot.

5. Broncos: Bradley Chubb, Defensive End, N.C. State

I have had the Broncos getting Josh Rosen in my first two mock drafts, but latest rumors indicate that the Broncos either trade down or go with Chubb or Nelson with their pick. If they chosse between the two elite players, my guess is that it will be Chubb, as they are looking for a pass rusher beside Von Miller.

1. Get Quenton Nelson with the 5th overall pick.
2. Trade drown with a QB-needy team.
3. Get Josh Rosen.

6. Giants: Quenton Nelson, Offensive Guard, Notre Dame

TRADE ALERT: Giants receive 6th overall pick + 2nd round pick + 3rd round pick; Bills recieve 2nd overall pick!
I have projected a trade between the Giants and Bills since my first mock draft, but this time the Giants only move down to the 6th pick, because there were rumors that they won't move further down.
In Quenton Nelson they get one of the three elite players in this draft, so they are very happy with this selection. With the 6th overall pick it is very likely that either Barkley, Chubb or Nelson are still available.

1. Stay with the 2nd overall pick and get Barkley.
2. Stay with the 2nd overall pick and get Darnold.
3. Get Chubb with this pick if he is available instead of Nelson.

7. Buccaneers: Derwin James, Safety, Florida State

Over the past few weeks, there have been rumors that some teams in the top 10 have ranked Derwin James over Minkah Fitzpatrick. The Buccaneers are one of them and they also watched James closely at his Pro Day.

1. The Buccaneers would love to get Quenton Nelson, but it's unlikely he is available with the 7th pick.
2. Trade down if a QB-needy team wants Josh Rosen.

8. Bears: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Bears love Denzel Ward and he would be a great addition to an already solid defensive unit. Ward is the best defensive back in my opinion, so this pick makes a lot of sense.

1. Get the best LB in Tremaine Edmunds.
2. Trade down. Possible trade partners could be the Dolphins, Cardinals or Patriots.

9. Cardinals: Josh Rosen, Quarterback, UCLA

TRADE ALERT: 49ers receive 15th overall pick + 2nd round pick; Cardinals receive 9th overall pick!
Another trade in my last mock draft! If it's not the Cardinals, it will be a different team which is moving up for Josh Rosen, who slided a little bit in the draft because of injury concerns. The Cardinals pull the trigger and get in front of the Dolphins who also look for a QB.

1. If the Cardinals stay at 15, they will likely get an OT or WR. Kolton Miller and Calvin Ridley are two likely picks.

10. Raiders: Roquan Smith, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

After losing the coinflip to the 49ers, the Raiders have to select at the 10th spot of the 2018 NFL draft. The biggest splash during the offseason was made by the Raiders, by getting Jon Gruden back to the NFL. In Free Agency the focus was on getting the offense back to where it left in 2016. So they go Defense with their first selection in the Draft.
In Roquan Smith they get the player they want most. He will be a great addition to their defense lacking talent beside Khalil Mack.

1. I had slotted Vita Vea in my first two mocks and I still think he would be a great fit with the Raiders.
2. Tremaine Edmunds is another player they could target.

11. Dolphins: Tremaine Edmunds, Outside Linebacker, Virginia Tech

The Dolphins would like to trade up and grad one of the 4 top QB prospects, but they couldn't get a deal done.
So they go best player available and maybe get the steal of the first round as they get Tremaine Edmunds, who slipped out of the top 10.

1. Get Roquan Smith if the Raiders like Edmunds more than Smith.
2. Trade up for a QB.
3. Pick Lamar Jackson here.

12. Colts: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety, Alabama

TRADE ALERT: Bills receive 6th overall pick; Colts receive 12th overall pick + 2nd round pick!
As written before the Giants won't move past the 6th overall pick, so the Bills make two trade to get their QB. The Colts already told that they want to move back again to aquire more picks. After this trade they got four 2nd round picks for moving from 3rd overall to 12th overall.
In Minkah Fitzpatrick they get a solid defensive back, which is a big need. He can play either safety or cornerback in a defense which is lacking talent.

1. Stay at 6th overall and get Nelson or Chubb.
2. Get Vita Vea at this spot.

13. Redskins: Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle, Washington

I have slotted Denzel Ward here before, but as the Bears get the best CB of the draft, the Redskins have to find somebody else. Vita Vea is a great replacement as they get a big run-stuffer, which they lacked the past few years. But don't ask me to write out his full name ;)

1. Get a solid CB in Joshue Jackson.
2. Trade back with a team who fell in love with Lamar Jackson.

14. Packers: Joshua Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa

The Packers have a big hole at cornerback. Their secondary is aweful since a few years now, so they pick Joshua Jackson to change that.

1. Vita Vea if he falls that far.
2. Minkah Fitzpatrick if he slipps.
3. Trade back.

15. Patriots: Lamar Jackson, Quarterback, Louisville

TRADE ALERT: 49ers receive 23rd overall pick + 31st overall pick + 3rd round pick; Patriots receive 15th overall pick + 2nd round pick!
Another trade for a QB! It's not unlikely that the Patriots trade up for a QB and with the top 4 gone in the top 10, they go all-in with Lamar Jackson. He can learn from one of the best QB to ever play the game and take over as soon as Tom Brady elects to retire.

1. Patriots can stay with their two first-rounders and pick OT and CB.

16. Ravens: Mike McGlinchey, Offensive Tackle, Notre Dame

Wow, the best OT in the draft drops to the 16th pick. The Ravens are very happy about that and get Mike McGlinchey, who will protect Joe Flacco's blindside from Day 1.

1. Kolton Miller if McGlinchey is already off the board.
