Who will the Colts pick No. 6 overall? Vote here!

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 five picks, with the Denver Broncos landing quarterback Baker Mayfield at No. 5, with the slightest of pluralities. 36 percent of voters went with Mayfield, just ahead of offensive guard Quenton Nelson. 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
5. Denver Broncos - Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

Now, we move on to the Indianapolis Colts at No. 6. We’ll keep this open for a couple days and then open things up for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here are the candidates at No. 6.

QB Josh Allen
QB Lamar Jackson
OG Quenton Nelson
DB Minkah Fitzpatrick
CB Denzel Ward
LB Roquan Smith
LB Tremaine Edmunds
S Derwin James

I see almost no chance the Colts pick a quarterback, but just for kicks, I left the two remaining notable QBs in there. I could see the Colts trading down again in the right situation, but as usual, we are not including trades.

We’ll have the remaining names on the next poll, but if you have any suggestions you think make sense for the Bucs poll, let me know in the comments. If you don’t see the poll, click here.
