Last update: Saturday, April 28, 2018.
This is a 2018 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

NFL Picks - Jan. 19
Carolina Panthers: Josh Sweat, DE, Florida State
Josh Sweat fell in the draft because of medical concerns. The Panthers could use him to bolster their edge rush.

Minnesota Vikings: Trent Thompson, DT, Georgia
The Vikings signed Sheldon Richardson to a short-term deal, so here's an interior disruptor for the long haul.
Houston Texans: Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State
The Texans added some nice pieces to their secondary this offseason, but they could still stand to obtain another cornerback.
Indianapolis Colts: Azeem Victor, LB, Washington
The Colts have one of the weakest linebacking corps in the NFL, so they could double up on the position in the first few rounds.
New England Patriots: Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond
Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett are both gone, so the Patriots need a new young quarterback to eventually replace Tom Brady.
Denver Broncos: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
The Broncos want to add another edge rusher in Rounds 2-4. Ogbo Okoronkwo would be in consideration at this spot.
New York Jets: DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Penn State
The Jets need to add another play-maker on offense in case Robby Anderson continues to have legal problems.
New York Giants: Hercules Mata'afa, DE/OLB, Washington State
The Giants could double up on edge rushers, as Olivier Vernon may not be on the roster much longer.
Washington Redskins: Daurice Fountain, WR, Northern Iowa
Daurice Fountain's stock is surging, and the Redskins could be interested, given that they need to add one more viable receiver to their roster.
Oakland Raiders: Michael Dickson, P, Texas
The Raiders cut Marquette King, so they'll be looking for a punter at some point on Day 3.
Los Angeles Rams: Josey Jewell, LB, Iowa
The Rams traded Alec Ogletree, so they'll need to find some linebackers who actually fit their 3-4 defense.
Cincinnati Bengals: Tyrell Crosby, OT/G, Oregon
I'm surprised the Bengals haven't doubled up on offensive linemen yet, and I also can't believe Tyrell Crosby is still available. This seems like a good match.
Denver Broncos: Jaylen Samuels, TE, N.C. State
The Broncos could use a Swiss Army Knife type of player in their offense, as Jaylen Samuels can do a bit of everything.
Cleveland Browns: Maurice Hurst, DE/DT, Michigan
The Browns acquired several players recently, but they did manage to trade one away. That was Danny Shelton, a run-plugger. Larry Ogunjobi will take his place, but Cleveland needs an interior rusher to start next to Ogunjobi. Maurice Hurst has fallen because of medical problems, but he'd be a great value pick here.
Chicago Bears: Danny Johnson, CB, Southern
Here's some more cornerback depth for a team that must stop Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford and now Kirk Cousins.
Dallas Cowboys: Jordan Whitehead, S, Pittsburgh
The Cowboys will need to use an early third-day pick on a safety in case they can't trade for Earl Thomas.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Will Richardson, OT, N.C. State
The Buccaneers need to bring in a new left tackle to challenge the anemic Donovan Smith.
Baltimore Ravens: Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama
Alex Collins isn't a bad running back, but he's nothing special. The Ravens need a new lead back.
Los Angeles Chargers: Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky
The Chargers were expected to find a quarterback of the future on Day 2, but they liked other prospects better. Here's Philip Rivers' potential replacement.
Seattle Seahawks: Holton Hill, CB, Texas
It's been pretty clear this season - even before the Richard Sherman injury - that the Seahawks need to find some help at cornerback. Two new corners are needed.
Buffalo Bills: Jamil Demby, G, Maine
It's kind of crazy that the Bills haven't addressed their offensive line yet. They really need to protect Josh Allen.
Kansas City Chiefs: Tony Brown, CB, Alabama
The Chiefs will need to add a cornerback after losing Marcus Peters this offseason.
Miami Dolphins: Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
The Dolphins want to spend a pick in the first few rounds on a quarterback, though it doesn't seem as though they'll trade up in the opening round. Here's someone they can develop behind Ryan Tannehill.
Kansas City Chiefs: Nick Nelson, CB, Wisconsin
I could see the Chiefs doubling up on cornerbacks, given that they didn't take any on the first two days.
Philadelphia Eagles: Nyheim Hines, RB, N.C. State
Jay Ajayi's durability is in question, so the Eagles are expected to go after a running back.
Atlanta Falcons: D.J. Reed, CB, Kansas State
The Falcons could use some more depth at cornerback after losing Jalen Collins.
New Orleans Saints: Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana
The Saints wanted to sign Jimmy Graham this offseason, but failed to do so. Ben Watson was the consolation prize, but he's obviously not any sort of long-term solution.
San Francisco 49ers: Wyatt Teller, G, Virginia Tech
The 49ers signed Weston Richburg, but he doesn't have the best injury history. Here's an insurance policy.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Jeff Holland, DE/OLB, Auburn
You can never have too many potent edge rushers, so it shouldn't surprise anyone if the Jaguars use a mid-round pick on a player who can apply pressure on the quarterback.
Philadelphia Eagles: Quenton Meeks, CB, Stanford
The Eagles could stand to add some depth at cornerback after losing Patrick Robinson this offseason.
Miami Dolphins: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
The Dolphins get a steal in Equanimeous St. Brown, as they need to add another receiver to their roster.
Baltimore Ravens: Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama
Unless Brandon Carr takes a big pay cut, I can't see him being back next year. The Ravens could pursue another cornerback early in the draft if Carr leaves.
Green Bay Packers: Da'Shawn Hand, DE/DT, Alabama
Muhammad Wilkerson was signed to a 1-year deal. Here's a long-term solution at the position.
Arizona Cardinals: J.C. Jackson, CB, Maryland
The Cardinals have needed a viable cornerback across from Patrick Peterson for quite some time now. Here's a possible solution.
Los Angeles Rams: Dorance Armstrong, DE/OLB, Kansas
With Robert Quinn gone, I think the Rams could select as many as three edge rushers in the first five rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Los Angeles Rams: Micah Kiser, LB, Virginia
It might make sense for the Rams to select a pair of linebackers, as they really need help at that position.
Dallas Cowboys: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
The Cowboys needed a receiver even before Dez Bryant's release. Now, they have to find two.
