The NFL 2018 Round 1 draft results are in the books.

*(Parenthesis indicates overall draft pick)

1. (1) Cleveland BrownsBaker Mayfield QB – Oklahoma – 6’1″ – 215 lbs. 4.84 – 40 yard dash time.

Mayfield’s impact is not imminent as he’s currently behind Tyrod Taylor, but he should see the field at some point. Likened to Jeff Garcia per NFL’s Daniel Jeremiah.

2. (2) New York GiantsSaquon Barkley RB – Penn St. – 6’0″ – 233 lbs. 4.40 – 40 yard dash time.

The mostly consensus best player in the draft. Potential three-down, Pro-Bowl back as he can impact play as a receiver and blocker as well. Barkley should have an immediate impact, but goal-line usage may be a question mark until we see it with Jonathan Stewart behind him.

3. (3) New York JetsSam Darnold QB – USC – 6’3″ – 221 lbs. 4.85 – 40 yard dash time.

Darnold’s impact is not expected to be imminent as he’s currently behind Josh McCown. The popular “safest floor” QB in the draft fills an obvious need for the Jets.

4. (4) Cleveland BrownsDenzel Ward – Ohio St. – 5’11” 183 lbs. 4.32 – 40 yard dash time.

Should be an immediate starter. Man-cover type with ball skills and speed. Likened to Chris Harris Jr.

5. (5) Denver BroncosBradley Chubb DE – NC State – 6’4″ – 269 lbs. 4.65 – 40 yard dash time.

Potential Pro-Bowl caliber player. May be the best defensive player in the draft. Should be an immediate starter.

6. (6) Indianapolis ColtsQuenton Nelson G – Notre Dame- 6’5″ 325 lbs. No 40 yard dash time.

Potential Pro-Bowl caliber. Should be an immediate starter. Fills a need on the offensive line.

7. (7) Buffalo BillsJosh Allen QB – Wyoming – 6’5″ – 237 lbs. 4.75 – 40 yard dash time.

Only has A.J. McCarron in front of him, for now, so Allen could see the field early in the season if deemed ready.

8. (8) Chicago BearsRoquan Smith OLB – Georgia – 6’1″ – 236 lbs. 4.51 – 40 yard dash time.

An immediate impact starter. A four-down athletic player per NFL’s Mike Mayock.

9. (9) San Francisco 49ersMike McGlinchey OT – Notre Dame – 6’8″ – 309 lbs. No 40 yard dash time.

Projects as starting RT for Jimmy Garoppolo.

10. (10) Arizona CardinalsJosh Rosen QB – UCLA – 6’4″ – 226 lbs. 4.92 – 40 yard dash time.

Pure pocket passer type and expected to be NFL ready. With Sam Bradford in front of him, could see time early.

11. (11) Miami DolphinsMinkah Fitzpatrick S – Alabama – 6’0″ – 204 lbs. 4.46 – 40 yard dash time.

Should be an immediate impact starter for Miami.

12. (12) Tampa Bay BuccaneersVita Vea DT – Washington – 6’4″ – 347 lbs. 5.1 – 40 yard dash time.

An immediate impact starter joining Gerald McCoy, Jason Pierre-Paul, and Vinny Curry on a now much improved defensive line. Likened to Haloti Ngata per Mayock.

13. (13) Washington RedskinsDa’ron Payne DT – Alabama – 6’3″ – 311 lbs. 4.95 – 40 yard dash time.

Should be an immediate impact starter to fill a need on last season’s worst rushing defense.

14. (14) New Orleans SaintsMarcus Davenport DE – UT San Antonio – 6’6″ – 264 lbs. 4.58 – 40 yard dash time.

May not start immediately but adds depth and has good speed.

15. (15) Oakland RaidersKolton Miller OT – UCLA – 6’9″ – 309 lbs. 4.95 – 40 yard dash time.

As Josh Rosen’s blindside tackle at UCLA, projects as RT for the current weak link on this offensive line. Rotoworld’s Evan Silva (the 2018 most accurate mock draft winner), had Miller going to the Raiders, but with the 10th pick.

16. (16) Buffalo BillsTremaine Edmunds ILB – Virginia Tech – 6’5″ – 253 lbs. 4.54 – 40 yard dash time.

Should be an immediate impact starter as Buffalo’s new Mike backer. Good combination of size and speed.

17. (17) Los Angeles ChargersDerwin James S – Florida St. – 6’2″ – 215 lbs. 4.47 – 40 yard dash time.

24. (24) Carolina PanthersD.J. Moore WR – Maryland – 6’0″ – 210 lbs. 4.42 – 40 yard dash time.

First WR off the board. Should see time in three-receiver sets.
