Ranked Offensive 2018 NFL Draft Prospects
The ranked offensive 2018 NFL draft prospects shown below represent the current status of draft prospects. The NFL Draft Board provides the basis of the rankings.
The quarterback position makes a big comeback in 2018. USC Quarterback, Sam Darnold, sits atop the NFL Draft Board as the grand prize of the greatest 2017 season loser.
UCLA quarterback, Josh Rosen could press Darnold for the first pick of the 2018 NFL draft. Rosen comes in just behind Darnold, for now.
And, late blooming Wyoming quarterback, Josh Allen, also appears in the top ten draft choices on the 2018 NFL Draft Board.
The 2018 NFL draft wide receiver corps is headlined by Alabama’s Calvin Ridley. Fellow SEC wide receiver, Christian Kirk, also starts off as a top ten 2018 NFL draft prospect. Kirk is an undersized wide receiver that garners attention for his kick return talents.
The NFL continues to gravitate towards double tight end and three wide receiver formations. With that, the running back position continues to drop down the draft board. The 2018 NFL Draft Board continues the trend.
Notre Dame offensive Tackle, Mike McGlinchey, headlines the offensive tackle position for the 2018 NFL draft. Currently, it appears the first offensive lineman coming off the 2017 NFL draft board will answer the phone in the second half the the 2017 NFL draft. McGlinchey, on the other hand, as it stands now, could clear the NFL Draft Board in the first five picks.
Center and Guard
The center and guard position rarely gets much attention in the top half of the of the first round in the NFL draft. And, true to form, the 2018 center and guard class probably fails to crash the party at the top of the draft. Although, Quenton Nelson shows up in the top half of some 2018 NFL mock drafts.
