I sometimes get confused with just where various players are expected to go, who we might be able to choose from at pick 18, etc. I wanted to know who would is likely to be available to choose from, and who is genrally considered "worth" a number 18 pick. So, I went out and looked at 6 post-combine mocks posted online (scout.com, Don Banks at SI.com, NFLDraftCoundown, WalterFootball, and two at NFLDraftScout.com), to see where the general consensus was. Based on that, there are 11 players for which there's a consensus that they'll be gone by our pick: Chris Long Jake Long Darren McFadden Matt Ryan Sedrick Ellis Vernon Gholston Glenn Dorsey Ryan Clady Leodis McKelvin Mike Jenkins Philip Merling Five of the six also had these three players gone before us (and all had them taken in the first round): Keith Rivers Rashard Mendenhall Derrick Harvey So, we can probably assume those 14 are gone, and we're left to choose from the rest (though three others will probably be selected first). Now, I wanted to see who would be considered "worth" a number 18 pick. The following are the list of players that at least 4 of the 6 mocks had as being taken in the first round, and that at least 2 of the 6 had as being taken at 18 or earlier. Malcom Kelly (taken in all 6, ranged from 11 to 22) Jonathan Stewart (taken in all 6, ranged from 13 to 25) Chris Williams (taken in all 6, ranged from 13 to 25) Aqib Talib (taken in 5 of 6, ranged from 7 to 30) Limas Sweed (taken in 5 of 6, ranged from 11 to 26) Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (taken in 5 of 6, ranged from 10 to 30) Jeff Otah (taken in 4 of 6, ranged from 14 to 23) So, out of those 7, we ought to have at least 4 to choose from. Kelly and Sweed are probably not on our radar (can't see us drafting a WR high), and Otah is probably a bad fit for the ZBS we're shifting to. But, we should be able to get one of the other 4, and they all see pretty good options.
