Tristan Beckmann’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft Version 3.0

With the NFL Playoffs having kicked off and the Divisional Round coming up this weekend, more and more playoff teams will be finding out their slots in the 2018 NFL Draft. But the other 24 NFL teams have now shifted their agenda towards scouting and finding prospects to potentially draft with their picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. 22 of those teams (sorry Houston and Kansas City!) either missed out on playoff berths or were sent packing in the Wildcard Round . They all know exactly which position that they will be drafting from in the draft.

So let’s get to the point right. Over the last few months, I’ve been scouting this draft class, position by position, player by player, as the college football season chipped away. Alabama defeated Georgia 26-23 in overtime to win the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night. So that concluded the grind of the college football season. The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NFL Draft is on Monday, January 15th. If any high projected prospect makes a shocking decision, you can expect me to be on top of it, releasing another mock draft later that night. I’ve watched enough tape on some of the guys to be able to put together rankings of them and now the third version of my mock draft for the 2018 NFL Draft. This mock draft is coming very soon after I released my second version (it was released on Monday Night), but I’ve changed up a few selections and this feels like a very good mock draft. Right now, I’ve projected the first 32 selections in the draft, (no trading predictions). And now, with all of that said, it is time to unveil version 3.0 of Tristan Beckmann’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft!
