A few more days and we won’t have to argue mock drafts anymore! We will get to argue about the real thing, the real-deal, honest-to-goodness 2018 NFL Draft. Until then? Back to mock draft-mania.
Chris, Dan and ‘Invictus’ presented you with a combo mock earlier. Here is the latest update to our mock draft tracker.
There are 45 mocks used in this one. As expected, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is the most often selected player. He was taken for the Giants in 16 of the 45 mocks (35.6 percent).
Quarterbacks were chosen 19 times (42.2 percent). USC’s Sam Darnold was the choice for the Giants in 11 mocks (24.4 percent). Josh Rosen was the choice four times, Josh Allen three and Baker Mayfield was selected once.
North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb was chosen seven times (15.6 percent).
The various paths the Giants could choose in this draft have been clear for quite some time. With just days remaining before they must decide for real, there is still no consensus on what they will do.
All of the mocks used are in the table below.
