2018 NFL Fan Vote Mock Draft - Cleveland Browns Are on the Clock - Pick 1

New, comments
NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The 2018 NFL Draft is just around the corner and that means we need more mock drafts. Every “draft expert” is putting out their own thoughts on who will go where seemingly every day. Rather than go that route today, we are going the democratic route and will spend the next 32 days asking you the readers who you think each team should draft.

Fresh off their 0-16 season, the Cleveland Browns have the first pick, so obviously we must start with them.

Here are some potential first overall picks:

Saquon Barkley: There are plenty of people willing to tell you that the Penn State running back is the best player in this year’s draft. He is, however, still a running back so it would be a bit of a surprise if the Browns passed on the opportunity to take their franchise quarterback.

Josh Allen: Allen has all of the physical ability you look for in a quarterback. He also played some stunningly mediocre football against some mediocre competition in college. He’s pure projection at this point.

Baker Mayfield: He may lack the ideal height for a quarterback, but otherwise he has all of the traits that you would normally be looking for to lead your offense. Also, depending on who you ask he has some character questions.

Sam Darnold: By most accounts that I have read, Darnold is the top passer on most boards, but we are far from seeing an actual consensus.

Josh Rosen: UCLA’s Rosen is a talented player and was very productive in college, but he has durability concerns that any team drafting him will have to make peace with before handing in the card.

Bradley Chubb: Chubb is the consensus top pass rusher and the only defensive player in consideration for the top overall pick. At least one draft expert has even suggested that he is a better prospect than Myles Garrett.

Quenton Nelson: Notre Dame’s Nelson is one of the most exciting offensive line prospects in quite some time. He is arguably the best player in the draft and although unlikely to be selected with the top pick he is certainly deserving of it.
