A History of the Vikings Selections for 2018 Draft Picks

Mock drafts have them trading up to land a quarterback. The Senior Bowl was first, and I think we aced that test. He led all rookies and first-year players with 96 tackles and also chipped in two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. "If Rashaan Evans is there from Alabama, I would jump all over that".

A potential replacement for Drew Brees. That quarterback could be Lamar Jackson, Mason Rudolph or Kyle Lauletta. They'll get even better with Green in the mix. The No. 10 pick is anyone's guess, but Mayock believes whoever the Raiders draft will be an impressive talent. Could he do for the Panthers what Josh Norman did for them? They are investing far too much in Eli Apple, to be quite frank. He added 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns on the ground.

Yet another Alabama defender, as the Cowboys seek to upgrade their defense, which finished 25th in DVOA a year ago. "I've had a lot of good support, and I've been blessed to be in the position that I'm in now". Sutton is no slouch - 1,085 yards and 12 touchdowns past year.

The Packers aren't deterred by Landry's sluggish final college season.

"The inaccuracy issue", Allen said.

The Bills are in desperate need of a quarterback of their own.

With Jackson at the helm, Shurmur can help shape him into a pocket passes first and a runner second.

"I was Miami (Ohio) when Ben was a true freshman, my fifth year, " Bath, the Redhawks starting quarterback from 1998-2000, told cleveland.com in a phone interview. General manager John Dorsey's reputation would forever be stained, and the team's rebuilding strategy would be set back years. Sure, quarterback is the most important position in the National Football League, but you still have to build a strong roster around that player. "Both safeties, [Minkah] Fitzpatrick and [Derwin] James, are unbelievable". James broke up 11 passes previous year.

Drafting a passer, whether it's Mayfield or another, now affords the Jets the opportunity to mold a franchise quarterback instead of rushing him under center while plastering large and unrealistic expectations on him and a rebuilding team.

He was a big reason why Georgia made the national title game previous year. Bottom line: He won't pass on Rosen.

Chasing coveted players in the draft is nothing new for the Chiefs. If Nelson isn't there, Chicago could look to fill a need on defense in the first round and hope one of the good guards, like a Hernandez or Wynn, slips to them at No. 39. Seven or eight trades in the first round could absolutely happen, but here's the rub, as Shakespeare once said.

The Giants have brought in head coach Pat Shurmur, also known as the "quarterback whisperer". Allen and Darnold used big-time pro days to help solidify their stock as possible top-three selections.

On potentially ending up in Cleveland alongside Wyoming basketball legend Larry Nance Jr.: "We've talked about some things".
