draft Thursday night Youth Mike Evans Jersey , all of them early.Five might be off the board midway through the top 32 picks. And, who knows given the desperation pro teams are displaying about finding that franchise QB, we could see six of them go on opening night.Barring trades — and there will be a few of them — here's one attempt at a mock draft.1. ClevelandOnce more, the Browns try to find their long-term guy at the key offensive position. There are plenty of positives and enough negatives about the top four quarterbacks to make this a crapshoot. We'll roll with the QB with the most upside ...JOSH ALLEN, QB, WYOMING2. New York GiantsDespite the screams from Big Blue fans to find the replacement for Eli Manning, the Giants believe he has two or three very good years left. So do we. Helping Manning recapture the glory will be the highest-rated player in the entire draft.SAQUON BARKLEY, RB, PENN STATE3. New York Jets (from Indianapolis)They traded to this spot with one express purpose: finding the next Joe Namath. Or a reasonable facsimile.SAM DARNOLD, QB, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA4. Cleveland (from Houston)The Browns took a stud defensive end last year at the top in Myles Garrett. They get to bookend him with this crop's top defensive player.BRADLEY CHUBB, DE, NORTH CAROLINA STATE5. DenverMany teams will call the Broncos when they see that two of the hyped quarterbacks remain. John Elway will listen, then will grab what he hopes will be the next, well, John Elway.BAKER MAYFIELD, QB, OKLAHOMA6. Indianapolis (from N.Y. Jets)If they don't trade again — and if they're convinced Andrew Luck will, indeed, return to Pro Bowl form — the Colts have lots of options here. They also have tons of needs.QUENTON NELSON, G, NOTRE DAME7. Tampa BayNelson would have been on the Bucs' radar, but no other blocker rates in the top 10, so they turn to filling a hole on defense with ...DENZEL WARD, CB, OHIO STATE8. ChicagoCertainly not in the quarterback derby after their bold move for Mitchell Trubisky a year ago, the Bears can go many ways here. The most help for them to go up in the NFC North is ...TREMAINE EDMUNDS, LB White Ryan Smith Jersey , VIRGINIA TECH9. San FranciscoWith Jimmy G in the fold for years (and multi-millions), the rapidly rebuilding and improving 49ers get a stud on the defensive side reminiscent of Patrick Willis.ROQUAN SMITH, LB, GEORGIA10. OaklandPredicting what Jon Gruden ever will do — such as leaving the comfort of the broadcast booth for the Black Hole — is foolhardy. Then again, what is a mock draft?MINKAH FITZPATRICK, S, ALABAMA11. MiamiThe Dolphins worked on every kind of scenario to get them into the QB derby. Guess what: Miami's staying put was the best strategy.JOSH ROSEN, QB, UCLA12. Buffalo (from Cincinnati)Lots of groaning going on in Western New York after division rival Miami takes Rosen. The Bills could reach here for a quarterback, but are better served addressing the chasm on the offensive line with ...MIKE McGLINCHY, T, Notre Dame13. WashingtonOther than the trade for Alex Smith, a big one of course, the Redskins have been relatively quiet this offseason. There's a need on the defensive line and in the secondary. With such a choice, go for the pass rusher.MARCUS DAVENPORT, DE, UTSA14. Green BayThis is not a top-heavy draft for receivers, but one stands out as a first-rounder. Aaron Rodgers has expressed some "differences" with the Packers on offseason moves, but will like this one.CALVIN RIDLEY, WR, ALABAMA15. ArizonaBruce Arians is gone. Carson Palmer is gone. Most significantly, Tyrann Mathieu is gone, and that's the guy who will be replaced here.DERWIN JAMES, S, FLORIDA STATE16. BaltimoreOzzie Newsome's last draft. The GM has been spot-on so many times in his tenure, but he's also missed recently with some high picks. Baltimore's offense needs a boost.DERRIUS GUICE, RB, LSU17. L.A. ChargersWe said the Giants weren't looking at the future replacement for Eli Manning. The Chargers Youth Justin Evans Jersey , who traded Manning's rights to New York back in 2004 and got Philip Rivers, take a different approach.LAMAR JACKSON, QB, LOUISVILLE18. SeattleDon't you dare utter the world "rebuild" around GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll. Not even in a whisper. Still, this roster needs some big-time hits in the draft. Maybe start with ...JOSH JACKSON, CB, IOWA19. DallasA receiver would seem to make sense, except no wideouts warrant this spot. Edge rusher does, as well as almost anybody on defense. Cowboys take big guy in middle.VITA VEA, DT, WASHINGTON20. DetroitMatt Patricia is a defensive coach and the Lions have enough needs there for him to skip filling the holes at tight end or running back to get an all-around stud.HAROLD LANDRY, DE-LB, BOSTON COLLEGE21. Cincinnati (from Buffalo)Anyone and everyone is on the board for Cincinnati, which never shies away from character issues with its players. There aren't such issues with ...WILL HERNANDEZ, G, UTEP22. Buffalo (from Kansas City)Missing on their quarterback earlier in this round, the Bills ponder whether to gamble a bit on a signal caller here. They also know the Patriots, up next, have a liking for ...MASON RUDOLPH, QB, OKLAHOMA STATE23. New England (from L.A. Rams)After seeing his defense torched in the Super Bowl, Bill Belichick must have been gritting his teeth for 2陆 months. He gets one player to help shore up the unit in ...LEIGHTON VANDER ESCH, LB, BOISE STATE24. CarolinaCam Newton has done some of his best work, including winning league MVP honors, when he's had deep threats to throw to. Torrey Smith isn't the answer, but maybe this pick will provide the guy.CHRISTIAN KIRK, WR , TEXAS A&M25. TennesseeNew coach Mike Vrabel, like Detroit's Patricia, comes from the New England defensive stable. He'll appreciate the chance to upgrade the defense with ...DA'RON PAYNE, DT, ALABAMA26. AtlantaAnother team seeking defensive help, particularly someone inside who can occupy blockers, penetrate gaps and has enough versatility to play run and pass. That guy is ...TAVEN BRYAN, DT, FLORIDA27. New OrleansComing off one of the best drafts in team history, the Saints would be thrilled to come close this time. Tight end is their biggest need and you know Drew Brees will make good use of ...HAYDEN HURST, TE, SOUTH CAROLINA28. PittsburghThe way the Steel Curtain was torn asunder by Jacksonville in the playoffs, folks in Pittsburgh must be rabid in their desire for a return to normalcy. One pick won't do that, but the Steelers make a good start with ...RASHAAN EVANS, LB, ALABAMA29. JacksonvilleFollowing a superb turnaround, the Jaguars will be a focal point team for the first time in years. A target for Blake Bortles, to whom they are committed for three more years, is an important step.D.J. MOORE, WR, MARYLAND30. MinnesotaAfter their megadeal with Kirk Cousins, it would be shocking if the Vikings don't address his protectors. Several times.ISAIAH WYNN, G, GEORGIA31. New EnglandBelichick went defense at No. 23. Now, he goes ... defense.JAIRE ALEXANDER, CB, LSU32. PhiladelphiaThe Super Bowl champions — it might sound weird, but the Eagles are legit to contend again in 2018 — could go a popular route and take Penn State TE Mike Gesicki. More likely is aiding the offensive line.CONNOR WILLIAMS , G, TEXASAround the NFC South: Week one The Buccaneers opened their 2018 season with a huge shootout win over the division rival Saints. The victory was Tampa Bay’s second straight over New Orleans and it put Dirk Koetter and his team atop the NFC South standings through one week. Here, we’ll look at what else went on in the division during the season’s opening weekend.Carolina Panthers (1-0)The Panthers started their season off on the right foot with a 16-8 home win over the Cowboys. There obviously wasn’t a lot of scoring to go around, with the Carolina defense stifling Dak Prescott and Dallas. The unit allowed just 232 total yards, with the eight points coming on a fourth-quarter touchdown and two-point conversion after the Panthers already had a 16-0 lead. Cam Newton opened the scoring in the second quarter with a four-yard touchdown run before Graham Gano made a 27-yard field goal to go up 10-0. Alex Armah scored on a one-yard touchdown run to pad the lead early in the fourth, but 16 points was more than enough for the defense.Newton was Carolina’s leading rusher, going for 58 yards and a score on 13 carries. He added 161 passing yards on 17-of-26 passing. Luke Kuechly was the game’s leading tackler with 13 (11 solo), while the rest of the defense combined for six sacks. Kawann Short had two, Mario Addison and Wes Horton both had 1 1鈦? and Shaq Thompson had one. Up Next: at Atlanta Falcons (0-1)Atlanta Falcons (0-1)The Falcons opened their season in Philadelphia on Thursday night, falling 18-12 to the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles. It was a low-scoring affair, with former Buc Matt Bryant being the difference in the first half. After Atlanta led 6-3 at halftime on two field goals by Bryant, Jay Ajayi put the Eagles on top 10-6 early in the third quarter. Tevin Coleman later answered with a nine-yard touchdown run early in the fourth to give the Falcons a 12-10 lead. They held onto that two-point advantage until late, but Ajayi scored again with 2:19 left to give the Eagles an 18-12 lead. Matt Ryan led his offense down the field and inside the 10 of Philly in the game’s final seconds, but the offense stalled out due to some questionable red zone play-calling and a couple of bad throws.Ryan completed just 21 of his 43 passes for 251 yards and tossed one interception. Julio Jones kept Ryan and the offense afloat in the best way he could, catching 10 passes for 169 yards. As if the close loss wasn’t enough, the defense will now be without safety Keanu Neal for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL.Up Next: vs. Carolina Panthers (1-0)New Orleans Saints (0-1)Buccaneer fans know exactly what went on with the Saints on Sunday. New Orleans came out hot offensively, but its defense couldn’t slow down Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay offense. The two teams traded scores early, but a 17-14 lead early in the second quarter was the last lead of the day for the defending division champs. After the Bucs put up 17 straight points, the Saints countered with a touchdown before halftime. But their defense couldn’t hold up in the second half and the offense slowed in the third quarter. Tampa Bay went on another 17-0 run to take a commanding 48-24 lead. Drew Brees tried to lead a big comeback, but fell short in what turned out to be a 48-40 loss.Brees was magnificent on Sunday, throwing for 439 yards and three touchdowns on 37-of-45 passing. Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara were unstoppable in the passing game, with Thomas setting a Saints record for receptions (16) in a 180-yard, one-touchdown day. Kamara scored two touchdowns on the ground, but also caught nine passes for 112 yards and a score.Up Next: vs. Cleveland Browns (0-0-1)
