NFL mock draft 2018: Players, picks, names to know

The 2018 NFL Draft will be held from April 26-28, so let’s take a look at some of the best mock drafts from around the internet.

Saquon Barkley has made himself a Heisman Trophy candidate this season, and his hot start definitely hasn’t hurt his NFL draft stock.

Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer even listed Barkley as the top prospect in the upcoming draft.

“He’s so f—ing good,” an anonymous NFL executive told Breer. Zeke is solid in all areas. Fournette is a special athlete for the position. This kid? He’s way better than both of them . . . He’s a step above Zeke in all categories, and has much better hands and feet and vision than Fournette does. He’s special. I haven’t seen a better college football player.”

Still, he’ll have to deal with the crop of quarterbacks and offensive tackles that are currently populating the top spots of many mock drafts. Here are a couple projections, along with Land of 10’s own mock draft.
