We are well into draft season, but it’s never too late for the 1st mock draft of the year! The NFL season is over, college all star games have been played, and later this month is the combine, a major factor in the draft process for most of these NFL prospects. Here are my predictions for the 1st round prior to the combine.

It's finally here, the 2018 NFL Draft. After 9 mock drafts over the past few months, I can safely say that I have no idea what is going to happen. Yep, I got nothing. All I can say with absolute confidence is that the number 1 pick will be a quarterback, but I cannot say for sure who. For now, I am going with Josh Allen, but it could easily be Sam Darnold. Despite the frustration I faced during this lead up to the draft, as I attempted to predict the picks, this has been one of the most fun draft seasons I have ever covered. So many top quarterbacks, so many intriguing prospects, so many teams that could trade up or could trade down, but haven't yet. So, here's my final mock of the year. If I get even 3 picks right, I will be happy. Happy Drafting everyone!
I decided it was time to change up the way I do mock drafts. In the past, I’ve always based my picks based on what I think will happen, and who I think will be drafted at each spot, not who I think should be taken. Sometimes those picks sync up, but often they don’t. So, for my 9th mock of the season, I collaborated with my roommate, fantasy football expert Andrew Erickson @AndrewErickson_ follow him there, to play GM and mock the 2018 Draft based on what we would do as the GM’s. 2 rounds, anything goes. Check it out and let us know how we did.

April is here folks, and that means 3 things, spring weather, meaningful baseball, and most importantly, the NFL Draft! With less than 3 weeks until the big event, here’s a look at how I believe the draft will play out. There’s still a million rumors flying around, prospects stock sliding up and down, and plenty of fake news to be put out about players and teams.
The NFL Combine has come and gone, and while we didn’t see a new 40-yard dash record, we did see some impressive numbers and some freakish athletic performances. Here’s a look at how the combine shook up my mock draft, which prospects helped themselves, and which prospects hurt themselves.
With the NFL season officially over, all eyes turn to free agency and the draft, as teams look to fill the holes on their rosters in hopes of making next season, their season. Here’s a look at my projections for the 1st two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft prior to the start of free agency.
After all the hype, all the rankings, all the predictions and all the arguments, the College Football Playoff comes down to two SEC powerhouses, the Bulldogs of Georgia and the Crimson Tide of Alabama.
What better way to start off the new year than with one of the greatest College Football games we have ever seen. Monday night’s Rose Bowl matchup between Oklahoma and Georgia was one of the most intense, competitive games since the infamous 2006 Rose Bowl between Texas and USC.
2017 is drawing to a close. The College Football Playoff is upon us, the top bowl games are coming up, the NFL regular season is wrapping up, and the top redshirt-sophomores and juniors in college football will be contemplating one of the biggest decisions of their entire lives; whether or not to declare for the upcoming NFL Draft. Notable big-name players such as Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, Florida State safety Derwin James, and Texas offensive tackle Connor Williams have already announced their intentions to declare, while other stars such as West Virginia quarterback Will Grier and wide receiver David Sills V, have decided to return to school next season.
