With all but two teams focused on the offseason, we start to get into full 2018 NFL Mock Draft gear. Here we have our first two round mock of the season.
Super Bowl weekend is here and we are all soaking in the last little bit of football we have left in the 2017 NFL Season. It’s been a crazy ride where we saw the Philadelphia Eagles come into their own and even overcome the loss of their best player, Carson Wentz, who suffered a torn ACL and LCL.
Despite his loss, the team made Super Bowl LII with a backup quarterback — although Nick Foles hasn’t been playing like one in the playoffs. They weren’t the only team to overcome adversity and make the big show this weekend.
The defending champion New England Patriots lost their best receiver, Julian Edelman, to a torn ACL in training camp and had to spend all season without their top target. They also saw their best linebacker, Don’t’a Hightower go down for the year with a torn pectoral muscle, which led to some defensive adjustments on the fly.
These teams were able to withstand the losses thanks to having the necessary depth in place. The best way to build that championship caliber depth is of course the NFL Draft. Here we will join the 30 teams who are already done for the year and scouting the incoming class of players with this two-round, 2018 NFL Mock Draft. Starting with none other than the Cleveland Browns at No. 1.
