Who will the Broncos pick No. 5 overall? Vote here!

New, comments

We’ve seen “experts” mock out the first round. Time to do the first nine picks for ourselves.

The 2018 NFL Draft is less than three weeks away, which means the mock drafts are flying fast and furious as everybody offers their “expert” opinion. Plenty of people will get a handful of picks right, but it’s mostly guess work this year.

We’ll continue checking out mock drafts, but I thought we’d try something different as well. Everybody has their opinion on who each team should pick in the draft, so why not put together a vote on who will pick which players? This will go through the San Francisco 49ers pick at No. 9. With a couple days for each vote, this will carry us pretty close to the start of the draft.

In voting on this, I’d like people to vote on who they think each team will end up drafting, not necessarily who you think they “should” draft. We are not in the draft rooms, so we don’t know how each team values certain players. So who you think they will draft could very well end up being who you think they should draft. This is entirely non-scientific, so I don’t think we need to get too much into our heads.

We are through the first four picks, with the Cleveland Browns getting Bradley Chubb at No. 4 with an overwhelming 79 percent of the vote. Here are the results thus far.

1. Cleveland Browns - Sam Darnold, QB, USC
2. New York Giants - Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
3. New York Jets - Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
4. Cleveland Browns - Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C. State

Now, we move on to the Denver Broncos at No. 5. We’ll keep this open for a couple days and then open things up for the Indianpolis Colts. Here are the candidates at No. 5.

QB Josh Allen
QB Baker Mayfield
QB Lamar Jackson
OG Quenton Nelson
DB Minkah Fitzpatrick
CB Denzel Ward
LB Roquan Smith
LB Tremaine Edmunds

The Broncos seem a decent candidate to trade back, but we will not be including trades for this mock draft. We’ll have the remaining names on the next poll, but if you have any suggestions you think make sense for the Colts poll, let me know in the comments.
