New England Patriots: 5 First-round targets in the 2018 NFL Draft

2018 NFL Draft Browns have'shopped 4th overall pick could be match with Bills

Josh Rosen this, Sam Darnold that, Baker Mayfield here, Josh Allen there-the saga continues.

"I had even typed in keywords to see if anything I had tweeted popped up that I needed to clean up, but nothing like these came up or I just missed them", the quarterback prospect told Chris Mortensen of ESPN. "So, I know they feel the same way".

Though the quarterback-deficient Browns potentially could grab Allen with the first overall pick, conspiracy theories have emerged with a team possibly leaking the existence of the tweets, hoping the 6-foot-5 signal-caller would fall in the draft to that unnamed club.

With that in mind, here are five players who could find themselves at the centre of a potential draft day trade.

The league said more than 250,000 people have registered for its Fan Mobile Pass, which will grant access to the draft.

Mayock said the Saints could someday make a philosophical shift on offense that would make use of a run-oriented quarterback like Jackson, who rushed for 3,071 yards and 39 touchdowns over his final two college seasons.

The Houston Texans will be bystanders deep into this draft; their first pick is in the third round, 68th overall. This year, they hold the No. 23 and 31 picks, so there's some speculation that instead of moving down to get more picks, the Patriots might actually move the draft board. "Finally, when he was about to give me a chance to talk, he asked, 'So, when did Bob Stoops start recruiting you?' And I literally - I said, 'Excuse me?' And he repeated the question". That's never kept Belichick from drafting the best player available and Settle should immediately slide into the rotation.

This is Ozzie Newsome's last draft as the GM of the Ravens, and I can see him going out with a giant splash. Though the Pats added Jason McCourty as a free agent to make up for losing Malcolm Butler, they still need to add a future starter to the mix. I think Minkah is that guy this year. "He's a run quarterback who played special teams previous year for New Orleans".

The night before the draft, more rumors began to billow about Mayfield being drafted with the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. I don't want that to be the impression of who I am, because that is not me.
