Predicting the 2018 NFL Draft Order: Week 6


It’s hard to believe that we are already in Week 6 of the NFL season which gives us a better base to predict the 2018 NFL Draft Order.

This past week saw a lot of different developments in the NFL which has adjusted my predicted 2018 NFL Draft order. However, the first couple picks remained similar with the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants with the top picks.

New York’s fall from a potential playoff team to a complete disaster has been a major surprise. This is a roster that had some holes, but overall has a lot of talent. Their defense is good enough that they should at least be more competitive.

The big surprise in the other direction is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Their road win against the Pittsburgh Steelers put them in the driver’s seat in the AFC South. Doug Marrone has developed a game plan that really features the defense and Leonard Fournette while protecting Blake Bortles.

As usual, the base for this edition of my projected 2018 NFL Draft Order comes from a newly release NFL Power Ranking. This week I used ESPN’s updated NFL Power Rankings and factored in a playoff scenario.
