Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the fourteenth overall pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the Green Bay Packers select:

Josh Jackson; Defensive Back from the University of Iowa.

What a difference a pro day makes. For Josh Jackson, improving his 40 time to 4.47 was only the beginning; his broad jump of 123 inches and his vertical jump of 40 inches no less. His positioning drills were also much smoother and fluid like the ones we saw on tape en route to him having his FBS leading eight interceptions. His 6’1, 196 lbs. frame allows him to be as phsyical as possible with some of the bigger Wide Receivers in the division like Adam Thielen and Marvin Jones Sr. What will be greatly appreciated is that Josh is a more ready cornerback prospect than the recently traded Demarius Randall. Granted, not all is perfect for Jackson. While he did improve on his 40 time, deep threats are generally an issue with him. If that is not bad enough, biting very hard on a playfake usually gets you in Coach McCarthy’s doghouse faster than one tends to believe. Still, his productivity and athletic capabilities outweigh many of the teachable flaws in his game.

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.
