Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the seventh pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select:

Minkah Fitzpatrick; Defensive Back from the University of Alabama

Drik Koetter already has his offense figured out. The issue now resides in the defense where they could not get to the quarterback and subsequently, defend the pass. Considering in this mock that Bradley Chubb is no longer an option, Drik elects to go for the lesser of two evils in Minkah “Magic” Ftizpatrick. Given the fact that the team sorely needs an all world Free Safety, Minkah easily fits this bill as his football I.Q. and instincts are among the best in the class. While he is no where near as versatile as Derwin James, he is what the Buccaneers need in the secondary; a field general who will allow everyone to be in position while also making splash plays for a defense that sorely needs it.

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.
