Here it is the inaugural mock draft from foodandfootballandeverythingelse.blog
There are a few caveats that I have to make clear one I truly believe, or maybe I am just hoping against hope that the Browns do not take a QB first overall and either trade the pick while still staying in the top ten with two or taking the best player in the draft. I am also assuming they sign a veteran QB in free agency. Full disclosure I feel that there will be other trades in the first round but I am not going to predict them here. I will also assume Cousins to Minnesota, Keenum to Denver and McCarron to the Browns. So without further ado, here we go the inaugural mock draft.
- Cleveland Browns– Saquon Barkley RB Penn State, the Best all-around player in the draft
- New York Giants– Sam Darnold QB USC, the heir apparent to Eli.
- Indianapolis Colts-Bradley Chubb Edge Rusher NC State, This dude is a stud
- Cleveland Browns-Minkah Fitzpatrick Safety Alabama, Instantly makes the back end of your defense better
- Denver Broncos-Tremaine Edmunds Ilb Virginia Tech makes an already great defense younger
- New York Jets– Baker Mayfield QB Oklahoma, the most polarizing player in the draft, you either love him or hate him, I think he can be great for a franchise that needs a face.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Marcus Davenport DE UTSA puts up Clowney like numbers at the combine and fills a definite need for Bucs.
- Chicago Bears-Quinten Nelson OL Notre Dame, Best Offensive Lineman in the draft and the Bears just hired his college Oline Coach.
- San Francisco 49ers-Denzel Ward CB Ohio State, best CB in the draft from the new DBU. Bucks have put some studs in the NFL last few years.
- Oakland Raiders– Roquan Smith Ilb Georgia, Gruden goes defense in his first draft back and takes my favorite player in the draft Smith. A sideline to sideline playmaker that will be great in the league for years to come.
- Miami Dolphins-Josh Rosen QB UCLA, I think the Dolphins are pumped that Rosen fell to 11 and I think Rosen is pumped he is going to play in warm weather Miami and not have to start right away.
- Cincinnati Bengals– Mike McGlinchey OT Notre Dame, Unanimous choice as an All-American at ND he is the second best O-lineman in the draft.
- Washington Redskins-Christian Wilkins DLine Clemson, Wilkins was a stud at Clemson that played in three college football playoffs he will be an awesome addition to the D in D.C.
- Green Bay Packers– Joshua Jackson CB Iowa, The Packers opt for JT Barrett’s favorite receiver, he had three picks in a blowout win vs. theBuckeyes. It also just seems right that an Iowa player ends up in Green Bay.
- Arizona Cardinals-Josh Allen QB Wyoming, missing out on the QB race in free agency the Cardinals get the big-armed Allen to throw to the ageless wonder, Fitzgerald.
- Baltimore Ravens-Calvin Ridley WR Alabama, Ravens opt for the speedster out of Tuscaloosa to shore up the receiving corp and give Flacco a number one receiver.
- Los Angles Chargers– Rashaan Evans ILB Alabama, if you need a linebacker The University of Alabama is a great place to start looking and the Chargers find another great one in Evans that has the ability to come in and start right away.
- Seattle Seahawks– Connor Williams OT Texas, the Seahawks break tradition and actually draft an offensive lineman instead of trying to make one out of a failed D-lineman or tight end.
- Dallas Cowboys-Courtland Sutton WR SMU, the Cowboys look right to their backyard and pluck a great wide receiver from SMU in Sutton.
- Detroit Lions-Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson, Another dominating DE from Clemson, the reason why they have elevated themselves to the top echelon of college football.
- Buffalo Bills-Da’Ron Payne DT Alabama, the third defensive player taken from the Tide and another that will be a solid player in the league for years to come.
- Buffalo Bills-Orlando Brown OT Oklahoma, Really good feet on Brown will be able to contribute right away.
- Los Angles Rams- Arden Key OLB LSU, Another SEC linebacker that can play right away. Key is a good combination of size and speed.
- Carolina Panthers-Braden Smith OG Auburn, great interior lineman to help protect Cam Newton.
- Tennesse Titans-Isaiah Wynn OG Georgia, big time O-lineman to help propel the running game in Tennesee.
- Atlanta Falcons-Christian Kirk WR Texas A&M, speedy slot receiver form A&M to go alongside Julio Jones for QB Matt Ryan.
- New Orleans Saints-Mike Gesicki TE Penn State, Combine freak at TE moved him up the draft and position board.
- Pittsburgh Steelers-Josey Jewell ILB Iowa, great fit for Pittsburgh getting a run stuffing linebacker out of Iowa.
- Jacksonville Jaguars-Anthony Miller WR Memphis, a big WR threat for Bortles if Jax can become a little more explosive on the outside a Super Bowl win is not far off for this franchise.
- Minnesota Vikings-Billy Price OC Ohio State tore a pec muscle at the combine but he will still be a great addition to the Vikings Oline.
- New England Patriots-M.J. Stewart CB North Carolina, will help not only on defense but take some pressure off of Edlemen in return game. Belichick loves guys that are versatile.
- Philadelphia Eagles-Ronald Jones II RB USC, versatile back out of USC will add to the diverse offense in Philly.
There you have it the first round according to me. The only thing I do see happening is the Browns trading out of 1, the Bills trading up for a QB, and New England trading their pick. That will be for the next mock 2.0. I used to make fun of the guys who did this but this is really hard to do.

This weekend at the WGC in Mexico Lefty went back to the winner’s circle for the first time in 4.5 years. He was awesome off of the tee and his short game was magical as always. Phil Mickelson is gaining momentum heading into the last few tournaments before the Masters. This year’s Masters is shaping up to be anyone’s tournament, it could come down to who makes the least amount of mistakes and who gets hot late. There could be as many as 10-15 golfers in contention come Sunday. I for one cannot wait!
I made ribs this weekend and the recipe is in Friday’s edition so I will just post a couple of before and after pictures:
