Who will the Browns pick No. 1 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 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’ll start with the Cleveland Browns at No. 1. I’ll leave this open through Sunday night, and then open up the voting for the New York Giants at No. 2 on Monday. Here are the candidates at No. 1.

QB Sam Darnold
QB Josh Rosen
QB Josh Allen
QB Baker Mayfield
RB Saquon Barkley
OG Quenton Nelson
DE Bradley Chubb

Some might make an argument for a couple other players to be included, but I think this is a fair list to get things started. The Browns hold the first and fourth picks in the first round, so they have some flexibility. The quarterback position is a need but who they might take and when is a tough call. Rumors are running rampant on at least three of the quarterbacks being the target, but in the silly season, anything is possible.

Trades are always possible, but for our purposes we will not include trades in the poll.

We’ll have the remaining names on the next poll, but if you have any suggestions you think make sense for the Giants poll, let me know in the comments.
