Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes arrived at the NFL Combine weighing 210 pounds and measured in at 6'1 and 1/2 inches.

Rhodes is a pure press man corner, thriving when getting a jam and riding his opposition downfield. He does flash slower hips and feet when that jam is missed, however, but Rhodes will fit very well in specific schemes. He's a physical tackler as well.

Ravens traded up with the Eagles to select Louisville QB Lamar Jackson with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The Ravens gave up the No. 52 and No. 125 picks as well as a 2019 second-rounder to land their quarterback of the future. It's a fitting sendoff for GM Ozzie Newsome, who is stepping down after this year. Jackson (6’2/216) followed his Heisman-winning sophomore year with a prolific 2017, averaging 6.9 yards per carry with 18 rushing TDs and tacking nearly three percentage points onto his completion rate (56.2 to 59.1) despite having 8.6% of his passes dropped, most among this year’s top QB prospects. Jackson’s ball location is inconsistent, but he offers highlight-reel playmaking ability as a runner and plus-armed passer with underrated pocket management and a pro-style background in Bobby Petrino’s offense. As a game-breaking dual threat, Jackson will need a commitment from his coaching staff to build its offense around him rather than change Jackson’s game to fit "their scheme." This is the first time since 1999 that five quarterbacks have gone in the first round.

Patriots selected Georgia RB Sony Michel with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Michel (5’11/214) was a committee back throughout his Georgia career, compiling a 590/3,613/6.1/33 rushing line and 64 receptions across four years. Michel caught only nine balls as a senior, but he averaged a scintillating 7.9 yards per carry and showed elite burst and acceleration with a consistent propensity for finishing runs and maximizing yardage with a highly competitive playing style. Michel ran 4.54 at the Combine, a tick slower than Alvin Kamara’s 4.53. Although Michel theoretically lacks high-volume bellcow traits and must polish his ball security – he fumbled 12 times in college – Michel is more than talented enough to become an NFL lead back.

Vikings selected UCF CB Mike Hughes with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Hughes (5’10/189) played his first college season at North Carolina, his second in JUCO, and his third at UCF in 2017, where Hughes earned first-team All-American Conference at cornerback and second team at return specialist. He averaged 31.9 yards per kickoff return and 16.6 yards on punts, all told scoring three return TDs. Hughes also intercepted five passes at corner and allowed an anemic 43.9 passer rating when targeted (PFF). A 73rd-percentile SPARQ athlete who specializes in press coverage, Hughes’ biggest drawback is his size.

Jaguars selected Florida DT Taven Bryan with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Already stacked on the defensive line, Jacksonville adds another guy who can get after the quarterback. Bryan (6’5/291) made only 14 starts in three years with the Gators, managing 10.5 career tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. Despite lackluster production, Bryan flashed upside on tape with uncommon quickness and get-off burst for his build. He shredded the Combine, testing as a 97th-percentile SPARQ athlete with a freaky size-adjusted forty (4.98), vertical (35"), and three-cone drill (7.12). Bryan must improve as a finisher to turn his hurries into sacks, but he offers a Derek Wolfe-level ceiling if he puts it all together.

Steelers selected Virginia Tech S Terrell Edmunds with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Edmunds (6’1/217) turned pro after starting all three years for the Hokies, managing 6.5 career tackles for loss with six interceptions and 20 pass breakups, and earning third-team All-ACC as a 2017 redshirt junior. Edmunds’ crushed the Combine with 4.47 speed and explosive vertical (41 ½") and broad (11’2") jumps. Plus sized and uncommonly athletic, Edmunds offers corner-safety versatility but struggled in man coverage on college tape. Still, he should earn early-career special teams snaps and offers plus-starter upside down the line.

Seahawks selected San Diego State RB Rashaad Penny with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Penny wasn't forecast as a first-round pick but has an impressive profile. Seattle has been in desperate need of improving its running game. Penny (5’11/220) emerged from Donnel Pumphrey’s shadow as a senior, logging a prolific 289/2,248/7.8/23 rushing line and graduating with a silly 7.49 YPC average and eight career return TDs, seven on kickoffs and one on a punt. In 2017, PFF College credited Penny with the most missed tackles forced (86) and runs of 15-plus yards (35) among draft-eligible backs. Penny ran 4.46 at the Combine for an exciting 92nd-percentile Speed Score. Penny needs work in the passing game – his blocking was inconsistent on college tape, and he never caught more than 19 passes in a season – but Penny offers workhorse potential as a faster version of Carlos Hyde.

Falcons selected Alabama WR Calvin Ridley with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Ridley (6’1/189) started all three years for the Crimson Tide before turning pro, finishing second in Alabama history in career receptions (224) and receiving TDs (19), and third in receiving yards (2,781). Although Ridley is an explosive route runner and smooth separator with 4.43 jets, he dropped 20 passes in three college seasons, lacks a physical element to his game, and turns 24 in December, making Ridley old for a rookie. Long term, Ridley still offers in-his-prime Chad Johnson upside with a Marqise Lee floor. Nick Saban compared Ridley to old Jaguars WR Keenan McCardell. He'll round out a dangerous three-wideout corps as Ridley aligns with Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu.

Ravens selected South Carolina TE Hayden Hurst with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Hurst (6’5/250) will be a 25-year-old rookie after spending two seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ organization, then three with the Gamecocks, tallying a career 100/1,281/12.8/3 receiving line and setting school records for a tight end in catches and yards. Hurst tested as a 46th-percentile athlete with 4.67 speed before the draft. Hurst is raw and old for a prospect, but he offers a plus pass-catching skill set and willingness to block. Even at his age, Hurst offers room for growth in a sport he wasn’t even focusing on four years ago. Hurst is yet another addition to an offensive skill group that has been complete overhauled in Baltimore.

Panthers selected Maryland WR D.J. Moore with the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Carolina added Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright in free agency and should get 2017 second-rounder Curtis Samuel back healthy, but they still needed to add some playmakers. Moore certainly fits the bill. Moore (6’0/210) turned pro as a true junior after starting all three years for the Terps, logging a career 146/2,027/13.9/7 receiving line and earning 2017 Big Ten WR of the Year in a breakout, 80-catch, 8-TD season. Moore shredded the Combine with 97th-percentile SPARQ results, including 4.42 straight-line speed and an explosive 11-foot broad jump. Comfortable and tough over the middle and a post-catch tackle breaker, Moore profiles on the Pierre Garcon-Golden Tate spectrum as a versatile wideout capable of winning at multiple receiver positions.

Patriots selected Georgia OT Isaiah Wynn with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Wynn (6’3/313) made 41 starts on the Bulldogs’ offensive line, moving from left guard as a junior to left tackle as a senior, where Wynn earned second-team All-American and allowed just five QB pressures in 15 games. Wynn dominated at guard during January’s Senior Bowl but was announced as a tackle during Thursday night's draft. The Patriots likely view him as a replacement for left tackle Nate Solder, who defected to the Giants in free agency. Athletic and powerful, Wynn profiles as one of the safest picks in the draft.

Titans traded up with the Ravens to select Alabama LB Rashaan Evans with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The Titans traded the Nos. 25 and 125 picks for Nos. 22 and 215. Evans (6’2/232) began college as a situational edge rusher before taking over as Alabama’s starting weak-inside linebacker for his final two seasons, earning first-team All-SEC as a senior and finishing his career with 21.5 tackles for loss and 14 sacks. Evans’ lone deficiency came in coverage, where he remains a work in progress and may not be ready to play on all three downs. Still a relentless, violent, and explosive off-ball linebacker, Evans projects as a plus starter with uncommon pass-rush versatility for his position. He compares to Lawrence Timmons coming out.
