2018 NFL Mock Draft: Playing the QB Chess Match : Every 2018 NFL mock draft is going to be dictated by the quarterbacks. Why? They reflect the simple reality that every draft is the exact same way.
If the quarterbacks are considered even marginally good, odds are they will go early and often. Scouts and experts weren’t taken with the 2017 class for one reason or another. Yet that didn’t stop three names (Trubisky, Mahomes, and Watson) from going in the first 11 picks. The NFL is driven by quarterbacks, so the desperation to get one is more prevalent than ever before. That’s why it won’t be a shock when there’s mad rush to start 2018.
