National Football League mock draft: Rams fill biggest needs with first two picks

NFL-DRAFT     Mel Kiper Jr. pegs Josh Allen to Cleveland Browns in new mock draft     
       Opinions seem to be split on the Wyoming signal-caller

The Jets would use Fitzpatrick as a corner, if they got him, because they drafted safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye in Rounds 1 and 2 previous year, and they looked good as rookies.

SDSU hasn't had a player selected as high as the second round since tight end Gavin Escobar was taken in the second round by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2013 draft. Hughes fills a big need opposite 2017 first-round pick Tre'Davious White, and he's a great punt and kick returner, too.

The 2018 NFL Draft is drawing closer, and the league will offer a nice gesture to players who accept an invitation to the event.

The Giants, of course, could go with a quarterback at No. 2.

He will need more than a few innings like the one in Centurion , even if in the T20 format, to stake his claim to that ODI spot. One of the biggest talking points in India's limited-overs cricket in recent times is the unsettled middle order.

In his second mock draft released this week, ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. predicts that the Bears will select Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds with the No. 8 overall pick. Watson looked like a legit Rookie of the Year candidate, throwing for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns in seven games, before tearing his ACL and ending his season.

One of the Broncos' most important, if less scrutinized, decisions over the next two months revolves around unrestricted free agent inside linebacker Todd Davis. If Chubb and Nelson are off the board when the Jets are on the clock, they should move back, add draft picks, and target certain prospects later in the draft when they have better value. Fitzpatrick is the type of player they need, and they'd now have yet another second-round pick. However, it's also not quite as bad as if the Browns took him with either of their top four picks. He's precisely what the Rams are looking for at cornerback, standing at 6-1, likely with sub-4.5 speed. He was a key cog in helping the Crimson Tide win two College Football Playoff championships in three appearances. Yes, veteran Larry Fitzgerald is coming back for 2018, and his production has shown no drop-off in recent seasons. Ameer Abdullah averaged only 3.3 yards per carry in 2017, while Theo Riddick is more of a versatile pass-catcher.

However, Kiper's mock draft also has the Redskins passing over Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who is considered the best in the class at that position. He had a really good career returning punts and kickoffs.

The Cleveland Browns own the first and fourth picks in the draft, and it is widely expected that they will use one of these picks on a quarterback.
