This NFL off-season has been one of the craziest and most unpredictable off-seasons in NFL history, as so many superstars have gone elsewhere to join different teams. This makes the 2018 NFL Draft much more interesting come April 26.

Ever since the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII, all the attention of media and fans has shifted to the draft.

The 2018 NFL Draft will take place in Arlington, Texas at AT&T Stadium. After the release of WR Dez Bryant, experts are predicting the home-team Dallas Cowboys to search for new help at the receiver position. 

The Cleveland Browns had the worst season in franchise history in 2017, finishing 0-16. The Browns made a frenzy of off-season moves and are in perfect position for the future, holding the first, fourth and five of the top 65 overall picks.

The Buffalo Bills will also be a crazy story to watch for on draft night. The Bills currently hold the 12th and 22nd overall selections, but many experts are expecting them to trade up for a QB, possibly swapping with the Giants at number two.

The Denver Broncos are on the verge of becoming a great team, as soon as they find their QB. Although they acquired Case Keenum in the off-season, many believe Denver will still select a QB. With number five overall, experts have paired former Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to Denver, as he seems to best fit their style of offense. Denver could be another team who tries to acquire the second overall pick from the Giants, because no one knows what the Giants are going to do at two, or what the Jets are going to do at 3.

While Saquon Barkley is unquestionably the best player in this draft, his draft stock may end up falling due the QB interest. He has a very good chance of going in the top five, the question just becomes: Who will get this super-star player?
