NFL Draft: Steals and bargains with Alabama roots

The Jets could select Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield or UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen with the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft

The Cleveland Browns have nine total picks in the 2018 NFL Draft this year, including five in the first two rounds. While Roberts' contribution was relatively minimal (31 percent of offensive snaps, 4 receptions for 46 yards, inactive last game reportedly for disciplinary reasons), Iowa rookie George Kittle, selected early in the fifth round by San Francisco, became a go-to receiver for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

If the Tennessee Titans love Josh Sweat, they should make another team pay them before they take him.

The MVP of the Reese's Senior Bowl is a heady leader who probably has impressed even more in team interviews. If thrown into action early he could flame out quickly. The Giants would be the ideal place for Allen, allowing him to learn behind a veteran QB. That's why he slips to being the ninth-best QB in this draft.

Watts got his hands on 27 passes in his college career, showing a good ability to break on the ball. This gives the Titans a nice edge pairing for the next 4 years if both pan out.

It has been well documented that this is a quarterback-heavy class and it is also loaded at several other positions. Because of this, he is a step slow and at times can be just out of position. Turnovers were a big issue, 13 picks, and too many fumbles. I just try to perform the best way I can, put on film the best me.

With the nineteenth overall selection, Dallas is at the back end of the middle. Move him all around and from week to week to get him in the best position to make plays. So why is he 4th?


It's hard to see Lamar Jackson turning into a successful NFL Quarterback on measurables alone, but his rare speed and athleticism while still completing passes on a regular basis make him an interesting prospect. There's some risk with Chubb's game translating after he posted a career-high 86.7 pass-rush grade last season, a solid number, but not at the same level of the Chargers' Joey Bosa or the Browns' Myles Garrett. I can't answer that question, only he can. His arm strength definitely needs work, and he doesn't excel in creating plays on his own. He'll also need to develop his route-running skills at the National Football League level. Though these were the same things said about Deshaun Watson a year ago. He may need to sit for a year or two and learn, but has a very high ceiling. "But being drafted. I thought that might be a little far-fetched".

I don't see tight end as necessarily a priority for the Lions. Make no mistake, when plays are blocked well, Barkley is an explosive, big-play threat, but his inconsistency may lead to a boom-or-bust style as a runner. There are still some holes to fill on the roster, but drafting a quarterback in this year's draft could be the move that puts the team over the top. His frame and great production are the intriguing though. He finished previous year with 289 carries for 2,248 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns in a solid performance for San Diego State. I've been seeing his name mentioned more and more as we close in on draft day.

Amongst the 81 players drafted ahead of Montana were three quarterbacks.

Vea is considered a classic nose tackle by many scouts. "And his arm talent".

Worth a look: As an intriguing Day 3 possibility? I didn't really believe it until after my junior year when the buzz started happening. The drawbacks are he lacks athleticism and he is too slim for his frame. This is a list of guys that I think the Chiefs could and should target without having to trade up.

Mike White is another interesting QB. The amount of interest the Broncos have been showing in regards to Mayfield is very interesting. On top of that, he is a below average athlete as well. After that, evaluations tend to be all over the place, and the last 12 selections of the first round in particular could be filled with some twists and turns and players being called who weren't found on a lot of mock drafts. If anyone can get over physical limitations, it's him.
