Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the twelvth overall pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Denzel Ward; Defensive Back from Ohio State University.

If there is one thing that John Elway loves, it is cornerbacks; second only to pass rushers. Chris Harris Jr., Bradley Roby and Aquib Talib were part of one of football’s greatest defenses in the “No Fly Zone”. Since that 2015 run though, Aquib just has not been the same; hence is subsequent trade to the Los Angeles Rams and the once vaunted “No Fly Zone” looked like the “Safe Airspace” instead. To that end, someone like Denzel Ward can easily fix this problem. Sure, being under 5’11 is going to be quite the issue going up against your future rivals in Mike Williams or Amari Cooper but Ward makes up for his lack of height with some serious edge to his game. Nothing seems to faze him and his footwork and hip fluidity are something to see. One underrated aspect to his game is his physical style of play in the running game; something I am sure Vance Joseph will love to see. Considering they already have their pass rush in Von Miller and Shane Ray, the remaining issue to retool their defense is to nab another cornerback. With Denzel Ward, Bradley Roby and Chris Harris Jr., while it may no longer be the “No Fly Zone”, look for Denver’s defense to redeem itself in 2018.

A Canadian loving gamer and analytical American Football fan; Steven has turned to the Black 'n Gold since the days of seeing Troy Amuna Polamalu way back in 2008. Since then, he has been getting more engaged with the sport. In addition of studying the aspects of the game, college prospect scouting is one of his favorite pastimes.

    strength in the world means very little if your accuracy is not very good. Knowing this however is why Josh Allen is the number one pick as Dorsey is using 2018 as a redshirt year for Allen to learn the do’s and do not’s of the NFL. Once 2019 is here is where Dorsey and the Browns will hopefully see the fruition of a year’s worth of experience.

    IF – AND IT’S A BIG “IF” – Mason Rudolph has a big day versus Baltimore the Steelers may have found theit franchise QB and it isn’t KP8. Mason’s been a hard luck guy since he was deafted and Ben was “insulted.” Ben is no rocket scientist but his physical gifts, history and hope combined to make Rudolph an afterthought for years.. Staing ready to play plus maturity may have combined to make MASON THE successor to Ben the Steelers truly need. If so, it settles a big question for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
