article image2018 NFL Mock Draft: QB's expected to dominate first round

By Larry Seely     May 10, 2017 in Sports
Los Angeles - This time of year has football fans reflecting on what their favorite NFL team has done over the off-season and what seems like forever until training camp officially opens this summer.
For those looking ahead, die hard followers know what is still needed to make a run at the playoffs or possible a chance to win a Lombardi Trophy and for those people, here's an early look at the best college players across the nation and where they could possibly begin their professional careers.
While this years draft class was short on top-notch talent at the quarterback position, the same can't be said about 2018. For those teams looking for a new offensive leader for the future, next April could bring the player needed with several young signal callers at this stage expected to hear their name called early in the first round.
Todd McShay of ESPN has released his first mock for next year and has USC Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold as the top-ranked player. The young man was terrific after taking over the starting duties this past year and has the "It" factor on and off the field that has coaches and front office's all across the league already projecting him has a future star.
Teams like Cleveland, the LA Rams, San Francisco, and the NY Jets could all be looking for someone new under center after this season and Darnold could be the answer for these struggling franchises.
Walter Football has also released an early look at next years NFL Draft and has UCLA's Josh Rosen second in the player rankings. Rosen came to Westwood with high expectations and when healthy, he has delivered. The two cross-town rivals could battle all year for the top spot and a chance to hear their name called first next year and it could come down to the battle they have when the two sides meet later this year.
One name that emerged after a superb year last season and could become a dark horse for the number one overall selection is Josh Allen of Wyoming. The youngster led the Cowboys to a Bowl appearance in 2017 with a cannon right arm and the ability to escape trouble with his surprising mobility.
These three have shown the ability to lead a football team and have the skill set to play at the next level and with another outstanding year and continued growth, could become the next stars of the game.
