Tristan Beckmann’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft Version 4.0

With the NFL Playoffs having been in full swing and the Super Bowl finally coming up in a few weeks, most playoff teams have found out their draft slots in the 2018 NFL Draft. And these 30 NFL teams have now shifted their agenda towards scouting and finding prospects to potentially draft with their picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. 28 of those teams (sorry Houston and Kansas City!) either missed out on playoff berths or were sent packing in the playoffs already. They all mostly 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. The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NFL Draft was on Monday, January 15th. That date has passed and now we have a definite amount of prospects who we know have entered the draft. I’ve watched enough tape on some of the guys to be able to put together rankings of them and now the fourth version of my mock draft for the 2018 NFL Draft. This mock draft is similar to Version 3.0 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). The Senior Bowl is coming up this week as players practice and scouts watch from the stands. I will be watching and scouting some of the high level prospects that are participating in this year’s Senior Bowl. And now, with all of that said, it is time to unveil version 4.0 of Tristan Beckmann’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft!
