2018 NFL Mock Draft: 1st-Round Predictions for Top Prospects After Week 7

Published by Bleacher Report on Mon, 23 Oct 2017

Another week down in the NFL and still no more clarity in the race for the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL draft.The Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers both lost on Sunday afternoon, keeping their winless records intact.To focus on the prospects, rather than debate the potential draft order, for the purposes of this mock draft we'll use the latest Super Bowl odds fromOddsShark.comto set the draft order. 1. Cleveland Browns:Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA2. San Francisco 49ers:Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State3. Chicago Bears:Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama4. New York Jets:Connor Williams, OT, Texas5. Indianapolis Colts:Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State6. Los Angeles Chargers:Derwin James, S, Florida State7. Miami Dolphins:Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C. State8. New York Giants:Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma9. Baltimore Ravens:Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame10. Jacksonville Jaguars:Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M11. Buffalo Bills:Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:Harold Landry, DE/LB, Boston College13. Cincinnati Bengals:Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi State14. Arizona Cardinals:Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville15. Tennessee Titans:Arden Key, DE, LSU16. Oakland Raiders:Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas17. New Orleans Saints:James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State18. Washington Redskins:Sam Darnold, QB, USC19. Detroit Lions:Austin Bryant, DE, Clemson20. Cleveland Browns (from HOU):Derrius Guice, RB, LSU21. Carolina Panthers:Clellin Ferrell, DE, Clemson22. Denver Broncos:Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan23. Los Angeles Rams:Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State24. Dallas Cowboys:Vita Vea, DT, Washington25. Minnesota Vikings:Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson26. Green Bay Packers:Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia27. Atlanta Falcons:Armani Watts, FS, Texas A&M28. Seattle Seahawks:Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan29. Philadelphia Eagles:Billy Price, OL, Ohio State30. Buffalo Bills (from KC):Bryce Love, RB, Stanford31. Pittsburgh Steelers:Dre'Mont Jones, DL, Ohio State32. New England Patriots:Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma16. Oakland Raiders: Malik JeffersonMalik Jefferson was among the most highly touted prospects in the nation when he committed to Texas, but his first two years with the Longhorns were a roller-coaster ride. According to CFB Film Room, Jefferson led the team in missed tackles during his freshman year in 2015.Since that rough season, however, Jefferson has shown steady development and appears to be finally reaching his potential in 2017.Bleacher Report's Matt Miller recently praised Jefferson as one of the elite athletes at his position:As Miller noted, there are still flaws in Jefferson's game, but his potential puts him in the first-round conversation. And his continued development through his career at Texas should give teams reason to believe he'll continue to improve and reach that high ceiling. 20. Cleveland Browns: Derrius GuiceThe Browns rebuilding process is slowly plodding along and, while it hasn't resulted in wins, there has been noticeable progress.Through the first two years under this regime, the Browns have invested heavily in the defensive front sevenmost notably with Myles Garrett, the No. 1 pick in 2017. The much-improved front seven has given the Browns one of the better run defenses in the league, as they entered Week 7 allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per attempt in the NFL.In 2018, the Browns will likely turn their attention to fixing the offensive side of the ball. UCLA's Josh Rosen is a strong possibility with the No. 1 pick, and they could also target a running back with their second first-round selection, acquired from the Houston Texans.After a slow start to the season due to injuries, Derrius Guice appeared to be back to full strength during LSU's win over Ole Miss on Saturday. He picked up a season-high 276 rushing yards, helping LSU to its third straight victory.Browns running back Isaiah Crowell's contract is up at season's end, which will likely put Guice on the Browns' radar.30. Buffalo Bills: Bryce LoveBryce Love didn't waste any time helping Stanford fans forget about Christian McCaffrey, and as his body of work grows, he's starting to catch the attention of the NFL as well.Love isn't a McCaffrey clonehe doesn't produce nearly as much in the passing gamebut he does excel as an explosive home run hitter out of the backfield.The Buffalo Bills could be one of the teams interested in Love, potentially as a replacement for LeSean McCoy.The 29-year-old McCoy is still productive for Buffalo, but it's hard to trust a running back once he turns 30. At the very least, the Bills should consider bringing in a running back as an insurance policy behind McCoy.
