Who’s going to go where in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft?
1 (101). Green Bay Packers (from Cleveland Browns)
OT Will Richardson, NC State
The Packers loaded up the need in the secondary, but they’ve got to go after the offensive line in bulk.
2 (102). Minnesota Vikings (from Tampa Bay from New York Giants)
DT Tim Settle, Virginia Tech
The Vikings addressed two big needs with CB Mike Hughes and OT Brian O’Neill. Now it’s about helping out for defensive front seven, and if they don’t go with Michigan’s Maurice Hurst, Settle is a nice pick.
3 (103). Houston Texans
TE Ian Thomas, Indiana
The Texans need to get Deshaun Watson as many weapons as possible – and they need a tight end. The guy who looks – and occasionally plays – like the prototype is right there for the taking.
4 (104). Indianapolis Colts
CB Parry Nickerson, Tulane
With a boatload of picks in the first three rounds, the Colts nailed the defensive front along with nabbing Quenton Nelson for the offensive side. The
5 (105). Chicago Bears
OG Tyrell Crosby, Oregon
It’s been a very, very nice draft so far for the Bears getting LB Roquan Smith, C James Daniels, and WR Anthony Miller. To do along with Daniels, Crosby adds more versatility to the offensive front.
6 (106). Denver Broncos
OG Tony Adams, NC State
The Broncos have loaded up, but they need a quarterback, and they need help for the offensive line. There aren’t any passers worth the spot, but there are interior linemen.
7 (107). New York Jets
WR Equanimeous St. Brown, Notre Dame
The Jets need more weapons to help out Sam Darnold. St. Brown is a fantastic value pick at this point with sleeper No.1 upside.
8 (108). New York Giants (from Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
OT Desmond Harrison, West Georgia
Even with four picks so far, the Giants still haven’t addressed their major needs. No complaints – Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter, B.J. Hill, boom – but they need an offensive tackle.
9 (109). Washington Redskins (from Denver Broncos through San Francisco 49ers)
LB Tegray Scales, Indiana
At some point, the Redskins need a cornerback, but they also need a thumper and playmaker of an inside linebacker. Scales is a fantastic, undervalued pick who might lead the team in tackles.
10 (110). Oakland Raiders
CB Anthony Averett, Alabama
It was a weird Oakland draft, and then came the value pick of value picks with Arden Key. Giving some help to the secondary is a must at some point.
