Summary of “The 2018 NFL Draft First-Round Grades”

The only question with this pick is whether or not Cleveland is making a mistake in passing on the best pass rusher in this class, Bradley Chubb.
Guard is not generally considered a premium position in the NFL, so taking one this early may raise some eyebrows, but interior linemen have narrowed the pay gap on the tackle position over the past few years, and they’re more important than ever with the influx of highly athletic interior pass rushers like Aaron Donald and Fletcher Cox.
Chicago Bears: OLB Roquan Smith, Georgia Smith is the prototype of the modern linebacker: Sure, he’s a bit undersized, but his range to run sideline to sideline and cover vast swaths of the field in the passing game trumps any concerns over a lack of bulk.
Middle-of-the-field defenders of Fitzpatrick’s ilk can run with slot receivers, mismatch-creating tight ends, and running backs in the passing game, and are more important than ever.
To live up to this draft slot, Vea must unlock his potential as a pass rusher.
Even if he’s double-teamed, he’s going to be opening things up for the pass rushers around him.
Davenport scored well in Football Outsiders’ SackSEER metric, but with the ludicrous amount of draft capital the Saints gave up to make this pick, he’s a huge risk.
Due to legal issues, Hughes left the University of North Carolina for Garden City Community College before eventually ending up at UCF. The athletic defensive back surrendered a measly 35.5 passer rating in coverage with four picks and 11 pass breakups for UCF in 2017.
