First Draft-N-Go Draft Board of 2018 at Scout Fantasy Sports

Most Surprising Pick of the first TWO rounds: Rob Gronkowksi, New England Patriots

Gronk is looking for an exit strategy to his career before the season starts. I’m not sure I want to invest a 2nd round pick in him.

Pick I hate the most through the first FOUR rounds: Derrius Guice, Unknown

Not only is he a knucklehead, I wonder if he will see more than like 10-12 touches a game. He’s not the most fluid receiver out of the backfield.

Pick I love the most through the first FOUR rounds: Saquon Barkley, Unknown

He might end up as a mid-first round draft pick by the time we end up in Vegas.

Favorite team through first THREE rounds: Team 8

I am excited to see how Team 8 finishes after starting out with Hunt, Cook, and Mixon. If Cook is healthy and Mixon gets 250 carries this team will be tough to beat.

Favorite team through EIGHT rounds: Team 7

I am very intrigued by Team 7. Wilson is a top 5 QB. Kamara and Burkhead are a solid RB duo. If Josh Gordon comes back strong he could be a steal in Round 4. Plus I think Crabtree is motivated in Baltimore to have a big season.

Most Surprising Pick of the first TWO rounds: Jordan Howard, Chicago Bears

I understand the new regime and Nagy but picking Howard with the last pick of the 2nd round is too early for my blood.

Pick I hate the most through the first FOUR rounds: Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears

Another Bear in the mix is A-ROB coming off an ACL injury. His best years could be behind him already.

Pick I love the most through the first FOUR rounds: Jerick McKinnon, San Francisco 49ers

Shannahan wanted McKinnon over Carlos Hyde for a reason and J-Mack could catch 100 balls out of the backfield this coming season.

Favorite team through first THREE rounds: Team 2

David Johnson, Tyreek Hill and Mark Ingram. I like the blend of balance and risk with the first three selections.

Favorite team through EIGHT rounds: Team 8

The mix of RBs and WRs is a great foundation.

Most Surprising Pick of the first TWO rounds: Jordan Howard, Chicago Bears

The most surprising pick to me within the first two rounds was Jordan Howard. He’s not great catching the football and could lose snaps and receptions to Tarik Cohen with a new coaching staff and offense. There has also been rumors of Howard being traded. He’s a risk this early in drafts.

Pick I hate the most through the first FOUR rounds: Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots

Taking Gronk with the 21st overall pick isn’t ideal when there are several good players that were passed on. He has missed nine games over the last two seasons, will be 29 years old when the season begins and has a lot of wear and tear on his body. 

Pick I love the most through the first FOUR rounds: Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers

Keenan Allen at 19th overall is a nice value and you don’t often say that about a player in the second round. Allen has a high floor every week. Seven points was the lowest he scored in a week last season. He produced at least 10 receptions in nine games last season. I would even consider him as early as the turn of the first and second round.

Favorite team through first THREE rounds: Team 3

I love the start of Kareem Hunt, Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon. All three will be lead backs in their respective offenses. I expect the Bengals to feature Mixon and they will improve the offensive line with the addition of Cordy Glenn and throughout the draft. Based on last season’s stats, Mixon has the easiest schedule for running backs.

Favorite team through EIGHT rounds: Team 8

I like Team 8 the most. He has a nice combo of high-floor, high-ceiling players with good value.

Most Surprising Pick of the first TWO rounds: Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys

Great player, but the Cowboys’ passing game looks to be a mess heading into 2018. Tough passing on three elite pass-catching backs with Gurley playing in the best offense of all backs.

Pick I hate the most through the first FOUR rounds: Jerick McKinnon, San Francisco 49ers

He’s not a lead back and he’s getting drafted high due to no other option at RB on the roster in San Fran as of now. Once the draft is over, McKinnon will be a fifth-round pick. Dion Lewis is a novice pick as well in the 4th.

Pick I love the most through the first FOUR rounds: T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

Love T.Y. Hilton at the top of the fourth round. Great value as a yellow sticker with Andrew Luck expected to bounce back this season.

Favorite team through first THREE rounds: Team 5

Based on draft flow and future outs, I’ll go with Team 5. He has two elite WRs plus one of the top TEs in the game. If he hits on his starting RBs, his team is doing to be very dangerous.

Favorite team through EIGHT rounds: Team 8

I’d have to go with Team 8. He finished his roster at the skill positions with players with upside and the ability to score TDs. His top three RBs have a chance to score over 200 Fantasy points in PPR leagues while also being an injury away from much more opportunity and scoring. Jimmy Graham will score in Green Bay while DeVante Parker may finally live up to his lofty expectations.
