Thu, Apr 26, 2018

A look at the first round selections from the 2018 NFL Draft, with comments by Reese's Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage.
During rounds 2-7, will list only Reese's Senior Bowl players who are drafted.



1st Round                                                                                                 
1. Baker Mayfield Quarterback Senior Oklahoma
SAVAGE: From two-time walk-on to the #1 overall choice! What a path for Baker Mayfield. So glad the Senior Bowl was a part of his journey!
2.   Saquon Barkley  Running Back   Junior   Penn State

SAVAGE: GM Dave Gettleman, a true football man, but he is 67 years old. No time to develop a QB, wants to win NOW! The G-Men obviously think Eli has at least two more quality seasons in him = Saquon.

3.    Sam Darnold  Quarterback RS Soph  USC 
4.    Denzel Ward Cornerback  Junior  Ohio State 
5.    Bradley Chubb Defensive End  Senior NC State

12.    Vita Vea Defensive Tackle  Junior  Washington 
13.    Da'Ron Payne Defensive Tackle  Junior  Alabama 
14.   Marcus Davenport  Defensive End  Senior  UT-San Antonio 
SAVAGE: Proved he belonged in Mobile, has a huge upside as a true 4-3 DE!
