  • Kansas City Chiefs: Way Too Early 2018 NFL Mock Draft

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. announced his first mock draft for the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, and University of Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is listed as the No. 1 overall pick to the Cleveland Browns. If you're taking a defensive player in the first round, NFL teams are looking for game-wreckers - players who sack the quarterback, make plays behind the line of scrimmage or take away the football. He had four quarterbacks taken in the first round, adding UCLA's Josh Rosen at No. 2 to the Giants, and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield at No. 13 to the Washington Redskins. But it's not the quarterback you'd think.

I have mentioned Allen's stats for a while and his career 56 percent completion percentage and some point to his surrounding cast, as does Kiper.

Allen appeared in 11 games this season, throwing for 1,812 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Experts warn 2018 is among worst for flu outbreak
Unless you have a case of scurvy, no science has shown any concrete effect of vitamin C being helpful when you're sick. The state Department of Public Health in CT recently labeled the virus as "widespread" in the state .


The Patriots seem more likely than not to draft a potential quarterback of the future in this year's draft. And with Brandon Mebane getting long in the tooth and the Chargers struggling to stop the run a year ago, Kiper believes the Chargers need some help up front defensively. Todd and I were talking about it, I said ‘this Vander Esch kid really impressed me, he said he saw it as well. Barkley is Mel Kiper's No. 1 overall prospect in the draft, but he thinks the Nittany Lion All-American will slide to No. 4 because of the overall value of running backs in the NFL. Coaches want to work with the 6-foot-5 Allen because he has all of the tools.

Yet, compared to last year, when Myles Garrett was the sure-fire top prospect, this year's class has very little clarity, particularly before the combine and workouts.

The 2018 NFL Draft will be held from April 26 through April 28 in Dallas, Texas at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys and the location of LSU's 2018 season opener versus Miami. The Patriots will also have a pick in the first half of the second round as a result of the Jimmy Garoppolo trade.
