Now that the draft combine and private player workouts have concluded, it's on to the 2018 NFL Draft.

In the last two years we have accurately named 48 of the 63 players selected in the first round in this NFL Mock Draft, with 11 players selected by their designated teams. Here is Playbook's assessment on the 2018 NFL Draft based on player availability and team needs, all of course pending any trades

By other draft boards, Calvin Ridley and Derrious Guice look to be reaches. However, they are well thought out selections that should serve their teams well. Remember, we had DeShaun Watson as the No. 2 overall pick in the draft last season. Enjoy the draft.
