Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the fourth pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the Cleveland Browns select:

Bradley Chubb; Defensive End from North Carolina State University.

I know. I know. Cue the “Barkley is the better player” music or the “Fitzpatrick is magic” theme. I am not suggesting Barkley is not. If anything, Barkley is my second best prospect on my board (my number one coming up soon) and is a far safer bet. For Minkah, the issue with him lies in his position. Sure, a cerebral safety is nice but how is that going to improve the pass rush? We have already deduced that Fitzpatrick would not help but what about Barkley? Generally speaking, when an NFL General Manager elects to draft players; especially those within this positions, you generally want to make your strenghts stronger to challenge within your division. Considering Myles Garrett is easily one of Dorsey’s most powerful assets, adding another beast in Chubb creates a truly nightmare scenario for the AFC North. Garrett is the far superior athlete but Chubb is the far superior technician with enough athleticism to get by. Add his ability to set the edge and you are looking at arguably the best young pass rushing duo in the league. Add the fact that both Dorsey has historically coveted pass rushing over running backs with Hue Jacksons comments and the math adds up to Chubb. With Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, Caleb Brantley and Bradley Chubb, while not as effective as the famed “Sacksonville” quartet, these young guns will likely generate some serious noise in 2018.

About Steven Ridley

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.
