when is it, who picks first and everything else you need to know


pm. 10:00 Friday morning, Cleveland Browns will decide on the first college player to be drafted at NFL this year.

There is nothing new to Ohio-based outfit, who spent years living in the bottom of the league and only succeed in the last two seasons.

Cleveland's choice will once again make this year's draft – after selecting the defensive end Myles Garrett this time last year – but there are many more stories due to playing beyond a few dramatic days.


Browns keep the flow as they choose from the top. But they have a lot more "draft capital" to handle.

In addition to number 1, they own the fourth overall choice and have three other round choices for their names that can be used to add talent or trade for multiple assets. Teams can try to move up fourth, giving Cleveland even more to work with.

Unlike last season, when Garrett was a light call on number one, the long-term franchise has not been able to pass a quarterback now. Or, more simply, they can not afford to miss one. They have been looking for a top quarterback for decades.

Your decision is crucial not only for them, but it will have a ripple effect and affect futures for many teams around the league. Which QB Will New GM John Dorsey Choose?

Quarter Years Back

As we have covered this week with Neil Reynold's mock draft, his six players to see and our rundown of the many teams that require new quarterbacks, this is a very strong group of signalopkaldere.

In Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson, the talents range from high to small, easy to rocket-armed and immobile to the most electrifying speedster we've seen in space for decades.

All assume Browns will choose one of Darnold or Allen's first superior. But immediately after that it becomes creepy. Are New York Giants With A Signal Call? They have argued for a miss that high would cause a big setback. If they do not, does another team make an offer too good to refuse? Who will jets choose in number three?

Nothing is certain – but the desperation for QB is there and it must make a fun first round.


Last year, all three first quarter quarterbacks (Mitchell Trubisky, Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson) were acquired via trades. And all three went higher than expected. It's already playing in 2018, as the jets are so desperate to get into the action that they have already given their sixth overall choice and the second round chooses this year and next to get into the top three – without knowing which player they will be left behind.

It is quite possible quarterbacks are taken with the first four choices if Cleveland is open to business.

It may not just be rookies who will find new homes. Since the new league year officially opened in March, we have seen a flurry of movements involving veteran players. Between Alex Smith, Tyrod Taylor, Marcus Peters, Jarvis Landry and Brandin Cooks, the teams have been ultra aggressive by acquiring players in exchange for picking.

There is reason to believe that the deal will continue this weekend.


Typically, the New England Patriots choose towards the end of the draft every time it comes around. This time, after shopping away Jimmy Garoppolo last season and Brandin Cook's earlier in this, they are in prime position to make big moves with five pickers in the top 100.

Who will they target? If the latest reports are to be believed, they are on the market for a future quarterback. They may well put their sights on Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson – the two QBs are likely to slip out of the early picks.

Buffalo has undergone a complete facelift under the main trainer Sean McDermott, which continues from big names Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby and Marcell Dareus last season and quarterback left tackling mating by Tyrod Taylor and Cordy Glenn in 2018.

Following these Movements are armed with a few first, second and third rounds in 2018. They must acquire talent, and a top quarterback will be number one priority.

Do not be surprised if a team that does not seem to have a big move (such as Los Angeles Chargers, Arizona Cardinals or Baltimore Ravens) pays their future to jump in front of the competitors of a player they have fallen in love with. EAGLES AND RAMS SITTING OUT

Each team approaches the draft differently and will change year by year year. This low season went Los Angeles Rams all-in on veterans who moved a wealth of choices to the above-mentioned Peters and Cooks as well as Aqib Talib.

After these deals and others in earlier seasons they are left with just one of their original drafts picks – their third rounder (87th overall). They also have three fourth round picks and five sixth rounds, but it's likely they will not be very active on day one or two.

In connection with the move to Deshaun Watson last year, Houston Texans does not choose in the first two rounds. Seattle is also devoid of choice. After their 18th overall choice, their next choice is in round five. Some teams have to watch and wait.

Finally, the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles sent a number of choices to acquire Carson Wentz, Ronald Darby and Jay Ajayi, and clearly paid it.

This year they only hold six choices and after their 32nd overall choice they will not be on the 24th to fourth round. Look for GM Howie Roseman to make some adjustments to retrieve some drafts.
