Posted September 23, 2018 07:07:07The 2018 NFL draft was one of the biggest and most anticipated events of the year.
The Philadelphia Eagles had the No. 1 pick and were in the midst of a rebuild with a lot of talent and talent on the board.
But the biggest concern was the possibility that one of their first-round picks would be taken in the first round.
With that being said, there were plenty of interesting players that were available, and here are the top prospects that were taken by the Eagles.1.
Christian Hackenberg (Wisconsin)The Eagles got a huge jump on the class with the No to their 2019 first round pick.
This was a very high-risk pick, as Hackenberg has been a top-five talent in the college game, but he has struggled in the pros.
He had two interceptions and just 13.5 yards per catch as a senior at Wisconsin, which was a drop from his career average of 16.6 yards per carry.
Hackenberg’s size and athleticism could make him a nice pass-catcher.
He could also have a chance to be a difference maker on offense.2.
Dede Westbrook (Ohio State)With the No and No. 2 picks, the Browns landed a big-time quarterback.
The Ohio State product has had issues at times, but was able to be productive as a starter at Ohio State.
He has also had some off-field issues.
He is a very good athlete, but there is a chance he could be limited due to a knee injury.3.
Jake Butt (Michigan)The Vikings are in a rebuilding mode and are in need of a franchise quarterback.
Butt was a second-round pick out of Texas Tech and the No 1 pick in the draft.
He struggled at times during his time in Ann Arbor and he was suspended for a year and a half.
Butt is a long, athletic quarterback that can get open, but his accuracy needs to improve.4.
Jalen Hurts (Alabama)The Browns drafted the No 10 overall pick, and this was a huge coup.
Hurts is a big, physical quarterback that has the size to be successful, but has struggled with accuracy in his two seasons at Alabama.
Hurst has an athletic build and can be very effective in the red zone.5.
Jalyn Holmes (Ohio)This was a big pick for the Browns, as they went from one of several potential first- and second-rounder to landing the No 7 overall pick.
Holmes is a solid athlete with the athleticism to be effective as a runner and passer, but needs to continue to work on his accuracy.6.
David Ash (Ohio Tech)Ash was a third-round selection out of Rutgers and the best quarterback in the 2018 draft class.
He was a starter for the Red Wolves during his freshman season and has been one of Ohio State’s better quarterbacks.
He’s also been a great recruiter, making sure that players he recruits from Ohio State come to campus and play.7.
Jake Browning (Oregon)Browning was a fifth-round choice out of Notre Dame and the top cornerback in the class.
Browning was one half of the Oregon defense that allowed the fewest passing yards and yards per attempt in the country.
Browns biggest problem has been consistency, which is something he needs to work out as a quarterback.8.
Josh Doctson ( TCU)D Doctson was a sixth-round prospect out of South Carolina and the fourth-best receiver in the 2019 draft class, but had a disappointing junior year.
Doctson struggled mightily for the Frogs, and he didn’t play well enough to be considered the top receiver in this draft.
Doct, however, has the speed and size to make an impact on the next level.9.
Ryan Ramczyk (Wisconsin, Michigan State)This is a surprise pick for Michigan State, as Ramczych has struggled during his career.
He also struggled a bit in the pro game, with only three receptions for 28 yards.
But, the big question mark is his accuracy, which has been inconsistent.10.
Christian McCaffrey (Oregon State, Clemson)McCaffrey is a former first-rounder that has shown a lot in his time at Oregon State.
His size, speed and athleticism will be huge assets for the Ducks offense, but if he can’t improve his accuracy as a passer, the team may be forced to move on.11.
Tre’Davious White (Michigan State, LSU)White was a top cornerback on Michigan State’s defense, and was a three-time All-American.
White is a quick, elusive player who can make plays on the ball in the slot.
He should be a big part of the Wolverines offense.12.
Tre Mason (Michigan, Utah)The Bears were very high on Mason, and they did well with their picks.
Mason is a versatile defender who has the athleticism and
