Packers 2018 mock draft roundup: Upgrading the pass rush, secondary

Adjust Comment Print

In a draft year when versatility and possible position changes in the jump from college to the National Football League add some uncertainty to rating the top linebackers, Tremaine Edmunds isn't anxious about where teams think he'll fit best.

With the draft drawing near, a lot of news will be circulating, especially in regards to the teams selecting in the top 10.


As one of the top-rated linebackers in the 2018 draft class, Edmunds is confident that how he played at Virginia Tech showed he can line up inside, outside - or at edge rusher.

Utah defensive end Kyle Fitts went to the New Orleans Saints in the sixth round with the No. 189 overall pick. With that said, here are three draft prospects who could potentially be a good fit for Tampa Bay. Of course, they had a much-improved defense previous year that was the main reason they made the playoffs.


This draft offers a unique opportunity at offensive tackle as well: generally there would be several players lined up to be off the board before the Eagles pick, and one or two well removed inside the top ten.

Most people think USC's Sam Darnold is the most polished quarterback in the draft and the Browns need to get this right this year.


Among the four receivers drafted in the first round in 2016 (Corey Coleman, Will Fuller, Josh Doctson and Laquon Treadwell), only Fuller has come close to living up to expectations. He is also the owner of Optimum Scouting, which produces an annual draft guide that grades hundreds of prospects every year. He has Kelly being selected 136th overall by the Los Angeles Rams. Both guys could be immediate starters as rookies despite likely being third to fourth round picks. You have to go back to 2002, when Kurt Kittner was a fifth-round pick by the Falcons. Watch as she waits to finally receive her gift - while the first two pucks Connolly throws over the glass go to the boys surrounding her - and the look of pure elation when she does. The first round will be on Thursday, rounds two and three will be on Friday, and rounds four through seven will be on Saturday.
