April 2018


The New York Giants passed on an heir apparent to two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and took a running back that many think is the best to come out of college in decade. The Giants selected Penn State's Saquon Barkley with the second pick overall, a player many football experts consider the best running back to enter the NFL since Adrian Peterson came out of Oklahoma in 2007. Barkley, who entered the draft after his junior season, has all the ingredients to become a great.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen slipped a bit, but the Arizona Cardinals jumped up to No. 10 to get him. Arizona traded with Oakland to get the 10th overall pick, moving up from No. 15. Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer retired after the season.

The New York Giants are looking to bounce back from a miserable 2017 season, in which injuries and inconsistency played a part in a 3–13. After the season, the Giants cleaned house, firing their coach and general manager. With new coach Pat Shurmur in place, the Giants hope to improve on a stagnant running game plus fill some holes on a porous defense.

Quarterback desperation means NFL teams can't pass on taking a passer — even a flawed one — in the draft. The Browns, Jets, Bills and Cardinals heeded that notion Thursday night, even as more highly rated players at other positions remained on the board. Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield became Cleveland's latest attempt to find its franchise quarterback. Sam Darnold of Southern California is trying to revive the Jets, while in upstate New York — where the Bills gave up on Tyrod Taylor — the future belongs to Wyoming's Josh Allen. Just after Buffalo traded up to grab Allen, Arizona moved up to get UCLA's Josh Rosen, a potential replacement for the retired Carson Palmer. Four quarterbacks in

The 2018 NFL draft is finally here. I've had so many mock drafts I've lost count, but below is my final projection of what all 32 teams will do Thursday night. Remember, this is what I'm? hearing teams will do, not what I would do if I were the GM. And yes, I'm making a trade this year -- two, in fact. They are both denoted by an asterisk. Here is my final mock draft for 2018: Top 300 prospects | Top needs for all 32 teams | Ultimate preview 1. Cleveland Browns Sam Darnold, QB, USC I've had Darnold here in every mock I've done, dating back to my Way-Too-Early mock in May 2017, so why waver now? In my opinion, he's the best QB in this draft. We'll find out if John Dorsey agrees tonight. 2. New

The first round of the 2018 NFL draft gets underway on Thursday, April 26 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and we’ll be following every in-draft move right here. Below is the complete first-round order with trades that have already happened.

Eli Manning isn't paying much attention to the NFL draft, even with the possibility of the New York Giants using the No. 2 overall pick to take an heir apparent to the two-time Super Bowl MVP. Manning doubted that he would watch the first round of the draft on Thursday, saying it wouldn't be hard to find out whether general manager Dave Gettleman either went for a quarterback or opted to take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, or traded down. Manning didn't seem to care.
