Now that i’ve walked myself off the ledge of “WHY THE HELL DIDN’T WE DRAFT DERWIN JAMES, A NEAR CONSENSUS TOP-7 PLAYER IN THE NFL DRAFT!?!?,” I can calmly and rationally say the following things about the Washington Redskins’ selection of defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne from the University of Alabama.
Here’s a fun disclaimer that should make you put a whole lot of faith in this mock draft: by the fifth or sixth pick of the 2018 NFL Draft tonight, my final mock draft (below) will likely be rendered totally worthless.
We’re less than one week from what figures to be a wild first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, so it’s time for the annual pre-draft SemiColumn, examining the latest & greatest (and stupidest) draft rumors we’re hearing to date.
With the first week of the 2018 season under the Washington Nationals belt, the team sits 4-5 after being swept at home by the hated New York Mets. Despite starting the season 4-0, Washington has scuffled and fallen below .500 for the first time since August 2015.
