NFL Mock Draft 2018: Predictions for Top 10 Best Players

The 2017 NFL Draft was defined by tight ends, cornerbacks and running backs as positions of strength. As we look ahead to the 2018 NFL Draft, it looks to be the year of the quarterback. This is good news for a number of quarterback-needy teams who opted not to use an early round selection on the position in 2017. While there is still plenty of time for our rankings to change, two quarterbacks located in Los Angeles are the leaders in the clubhouse to be the top 2018 selections. USC's Sam Darnold emerged as one of the best young quarterbacks in college football during the 2016 season. He is entering his first full season as the starting quarterback and will only be helped by the playing experience he got last year. UCLA's Josh Rosen had a disappointing 2016 season after it was cut short with a shoulder injury. He looks to bounce back in 2017 to prove to people he is worthy of the NFL praise he has been getting since he entered college football. One player who may not be as well-known is Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, who has a legitimate shot to also be considered for next year's top selection. As this year's draft comes to a close, Heavy is here to get you through the next 365 days by looking ahead to next season's draft. How high the quarterbacks end up being selected will depend on two things. What teams are picking at the top of next year's draft, as well as how these three quarterbacks play in the 2017 college football season. While the 2018 NFL Draft order is far from being determined, Heavy used the latest Vegas 2018 Super Bowl odds courtesy of OddsShark to determine the order for our first 2018 NFL mock draft.
