Denver Broncos mock draft: Could Josh Rosen fall?

Denver Broncos mock draft: Could Josh Rosen fall?

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. Here's a full 7-round Jets mock draft that will provide Gang Green a positive future moving forward.

Though the NFL Draft is still months away, ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper has his first mock draft up and it suggests the top of the board will be a scramble for quarterbacks.

"His numbers aren't impressive, I know", Kiper wrote.

Widely projected to be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft, Davis had 36 tackles with 11 pass breakups, an interception and fumble recovery this season.

"The best comp for Allen (6-5, 233) is Big Ben (Roethlisberger) when he came out of college", the unnamed executive told the Plain-Dealer. Jackson has inside/outside flexibility and he might be the fastest player in the entire draft.

The organization has struggled to develop a franchise quarterback for three decades despite drafting 14 quarterbacks in that span, including four in the first round (Tim Couch, Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden and Johnny Manziel). Or they could wait to find a quarterback with one of their two second round picks. NY took safeties with its top two picks a year ago (Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye), so Fitzpatrick would be a corner for the Jets, who have an opening with Morris Claiborne a free agent this offseason.

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.

That Allen is in the National Football League conversation for the top spot speaks volumes about his clear-cut traits.

Alabama set new draft records previous year as the Tide became the first team in draft history with seven players selected during the first 55 picks of the draft and the first with nine players chosen during the first 80 picks.

A running back hasn't been selected No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft since former Nittany Lion Ki-Jana Carter was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1995. "He was a much better player than I thought he'd be when I looked at him over the last couple weeks".

The top two prospects, regardless of position, are running back Saquon Barkley (Penn State) and defensive end Bradley Chubb (North Carolina State), respectively.
