Tristan Beckmann’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft Version 6.0 (Post-Week 1 of Free Agency)

Welcome to the sixth version of my 2018 NFL Mock Draft. We are one week through free agency and players are making moves and teams are winding down their list of roster needs. College Pro Days have gone into full effect and coaches/scouts are traveling across the country to get an even better look at some of the top prospects in this year’s draft class. After viewing even more tape since the combine ended in Indy a few weeks ago, I feel even more obliged to release the sixth version of my mock draft series.

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. I’ve watched enough tape on some of the guys to be able to put together rankings of them and now the sixth version of my mock draft for the 2018 NFL Draft. This mock draft is immediately after the first week of free agency and contains the reactions to some of the big free agency moves that we’ve seen thus far. In my opinion, this feels like a very good mock draft. Right now, I’ve projected the first 32 selections in the draft, (with no trading predictions). And now, with all of that said, it is time to unveil version 6.0 of Tristan Beckmann’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft!
