2018 NFL Mock Draft: Mid-August Update

1 of 9

This is an updated 2018 NFL Mock Draft featuring several changes based on updated evaluations on different prospects.

The draft order for this 2018 NFL Mock Draft was developed using Peter King’s most recent power rankings. Looking at the power rankings gives an idea how each team stacks up as we head into the season.

Of course, things change in a hurry which means this is not going to be the order we see when the draft arrives. It’s one of the reasons why you shouldn’t really put too much focus on the order and focus more on the picks.

The 2018 NFL Draft features a ton of high-end prospects. It’s especially deep at the quarterback position where we could see multiple selected inside the top-10. There are also some really talented running backs in this class like Penn State’s Saquon Barkley and LSU’s Derrius Guice.

There are some intriguing defensive tackle prospects who bring a ton of versatility. Washington’s Vita Vea, Florida State’s Derrick Nnadi and Clemson’s Christian Wilkins should all be 1st round picks.

Overall, the 2018 NFL Draft has a good mix of offensive and defensive prospects. This should be a fun group to monitor as the season progresses.
