2018 NFL Draft Big Board, Vol. 5

1. Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama
2. Bradley Chubb, EDGE, N.C. State
3. Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
4. Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame
5. Sam Darnold, QB, USC
6. Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
7. Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State
8. Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama
9. Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
10. Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia


If I’m going to base this on who’s playing the best, then Minkah Fitzpatrick and Bradley Chubb belong atop the list. Fitzpatrick was all over the field as the Tide outlasted Mississippi State in the fourth quarter, and Chubb had 2.5 sacks and 4 hurries in N.C. State’s squeaker at Boston College . . . Saquon Barkley is still 101 rushing yards shy of 1,000 for the year, and has gone for just 142 yards on 49 carries over his last three games. Ohio State, Michigan State and Rutgers loaded up to stop him, but that’s still a concerning lack of production . . . Don’t read too much into Quenton Nelson dropping a few spots . . . Christian Wilkins has been on the list before, and rejoins after a very disruptive effort against Florida State on Saturday.
