The New Reality No.88: 2018 NFL Draft Class Preview

Examining the key prospects and metrics to track for the 2018 NFL Draft class

With the 2017 college football season set to start, dynasty owners are checking out the next wave of upcoming talent for future NFL Drafts. With notable talents eligible in 2017 returning to school, there is a known subset for the 2018 class as well as the upcoming prospects eligible for the first time.

The key word with quarterbacks in devy leagues is caution. The wind of NFL Draft stock can change in a matter of months for projected top signal callers. Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, and Josh Allen are all projected as top-10 NFL Draft picks as the cream of the prospect crop. On the metric side, Darnold is the most complete without a flaw, other than logging more experience to meet the baselines of more successful historical prospects. Josh Rosen is the most metrically-flawed heading into 2017 with a sub-60% completion rate and a negative rushing total. While a quarterback does not need to be an overtly athletic specimen, functional mobility (representing sack avoidance and some scrambles when necessary) are preferred. Also, Rosen has a concerning 2.1-to-1 TD/INT ratio. There is plenty for Rosen to improve upon in 2017. Josh Allen has the mobility numbers Rosen lacks, but a more concerning 56% completion rate. Allen's 1.9-to-1 ratio is also low. Lamar Jackson and Nick Fitzgerald have low completion rates. Mason Rudolph, Max Browne, and Luke Falk have negative rushing totals.
