NFL Draft: Mike Mayock not wowed by the top quarterbacks

The NFL draft is a very unsure thing. The expected top-five pick dropped like a stone before being rescued by Miami at no13. But if you're tired of cable and would prefer to watch things over the internet, go for a service like fuboTV, which offers live streams of NFL Network and Fox. Today, we'll start with the bevy of ESPN draft analysts who recently completed a round of media teleconferences.

With the first pick in this 2018 National Football League mock draft, the Browns select USC quarterback Sam Darnold. In fact, the ESPN crew seems to think they won't. Mayfield will be fun in NY.

The willingness, it shows you about his attitude. Baltimore and New Orleans have both relied on TEs as offensive fixtures for years, so it should come as no surprise to see either or both select one in the opening round. "I think at the end of the day, it's Sam Darnold". Riddick said. "Does Miami want to get up there or don't they?" Since that time, the earliest they have drafted one is in the fourth round. But there's a couple mocks that when you run them through, maybe Buffalo and Miami don't have to move up anywhere.

Although players like TE Dallas Goedert and DT Taven Bryan were available, I made a decision to stick with the player I targeted all along: LB Leighton Vander Esch (LVE).

"I think there's going to be some better value for them at 10, and I love Vita Vea", he said, "but I'm just not sure what he gives you as a rusher in your sub package, which you're in 60 to 70 percent of the time".

But then Mayock took a look at the other side of the coin, examining, what for lack of a better term were three journeyman quarterbacks who went deep into the playoffs in 2017.

The best case scenario for the Washington Redskins is if four or more of the top quarterbacks are taken prior to the No. 13 pick. If he doesn't want to go No. 1 overall, then what's the point as a competitor? South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert is on the first-round bubble, with the New Orleans Saints reportedly interested in adding him. Some have said that Allen could be Ben Roethlisberger; others have opined that Darnold is Andrew Luck.

Abe, a hard-liner on the North, said he welcomed the announcement carried by state media early Saturday as a positive development. President Donald Trump welcomed the facts, stating that it indicates progress and that he goes ahead to an impending summit.

On to pick No. 4.

The chances of the Giants and Jets winding up with franchise quarterbacks are enhanced if Dorsey is enamored of Allen.

If it was the first pick in the draft, I could understand the parade, but at No. 3 in the first round, it raises two questions.

The Browns own five picks in the top 64 picks.

Mel Kiper Jr., as always, remains steadfast in his belief in Allen as the No. 1 pick.

However, will Allen be able to make the jump like Carson Wentz did with the Philadelphia Eagles? No one really knows. But he's a hard one for me to personally evaluate, because he's coming out of Wyoming in the Mountain West.

- Even though they just traded out of sixth overall, I'm expecting the Colts to be quite active in this draft with the amount of second-round picks that they have.
