With the NFL Draft only a few days away, there are more mock drafts floating around the Internet than there are rumors about why Bill Belichick benched Malcolm Butler in the Super Bowl.
Yesterday, we brought you Peter King’s most recent guess as to which quarterback prospect Cleveland would be selecting with the first overall pick (it was Sam Darnold out of USC).
Today, we’re going to look at what The Washington Post thinks will happen on Thursday … there are some similarities.
Like King, The Post believes the Browns will take Darnold at No. 1 and the Giants will take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 2. From there, The Post differs from King by predicting the Jets will select quarterback Baker Mayfield at No. 3. Both publications have Cleveland going with N.C. State edge rusher Bradley Chubb at No. 4 overall.
From there, things get a little complicated with projected trades, but the picks are Josh Rosen to the Dolphins, Quenton Nelson to the Bears, Derwin James to the Bucs, Roquan Smith to the Colts, Tremaine Edmunds to the Patriots, Vita Vea to the Raiders, Denzel Ward to the Broncos and Josh Allen – who some think will go No. 1 – to the Bills at No. 12.Read the full story at The Washington Post
