Gil Brandt's top-ranked prospects for 2018 NFL Draft...

M.S. : 4/16/2018 1:25 pm
...first link is 1 - 100.

Second link is 101 - 150.

One observation: Gil Brandt has Leighton Vander Esch (ILB from Boise State) at #17 and D.J Moore (WR from Maryland) at #19. He has them a little higher than what I've seen on average for these two prospects. IMO, they will be NFL All-Stars and whoever secures these two between the 10th and 20th selections will be in for a big treat. Two of my favorite player in this Draft!
C'mon man, learn to internet. It's 2018

I don't have any questions about this young man with regard to the chatter about his character. A good athlete, Rosen has a strong arm and accuracy -- he can make all the throws. By Year 2, he'll be a successful starter in the NFL. I really like this player.

Darnold combines a quick release with very good accuracy and mobility. His 2017 numbers were a step down from 2016, but he was not working with a great receiver corps last season. Darnold has the ability to be a franchise quarterback and be a factor in this league for years to come.

Obviously, and so do most people. Rosen is the most complete and closest to NFL ready of any of the prospects. His only real drawback are the medicals - namely the concussions...
Actually I think most have Darnold the top rated

Remember how excited he was about us landing future HOFer, Bryan Kehl?

There's really not. Every year, we see mock draft after mock draft and expect things to go a certain way, and low and behold, it never does, because each team sees things differently.

I trust Gil Brandt much more than the likes of some of these mock draft websites.
Sorry a great man for those of us who know him.

His best days are behind him though.

when I was young, you were old. And now Iím old and youíre ...still old. Have to admire his passion . He always throws in some small-school prospects because it reminds him of his glory days with the Cowboys , when they were working that prototype mainframe .

His list fits perfectly with my ideal pickups through the first three rounds, if the board fell the way his list goes:

Rd 1, Pick 2 (2 overall) Josh Rosen

Rd 2, Pick 2 (34 overall) Derrius Guice, Nick Chubb or Rashad Penny, probably in that order, with Sony Michel as a dark horse, if he falls to round 2, depending on what type of back and run scheme the Giants adopt, if he falls to round 2. If Giants take a QB in round 1, it would be really good to get a hard running RB with a second gear to take some pressure off of Eli.

Rd 3, Pick 2 (66 overall) Braden Smith, Martinas Rankin or Billy Price, probably in that order.

Rd 3, Pick 5 (69 overall) (my favorite pick due to potential upside and my favorite position) Lorenzo Carter, Arden Key, or Josh Sweat, probably in that order with Key as my first preference IF the Giants are comfortable with his off field issues, which I tend to doubt. These are all super athletic potential 3-4 OLBs who were at times very good to great but also somewhat underachieved in college. I dont' see the Giants keeping Olivier Vernon long term -- cost vs production.
