2018 NFL free-agency mock draft: Browns land Kirk Cousins, seven teams take CBs

It’s almost 2018 NFL Draft season, which means it’s already 2018 NFL mock draft season.

What most mock drafters and readers often forget, however, is that teams’ real-life draft boards can drastically change depending on what happens in the big event that comes before April’s rookie bonanza — free agency. (As if we needed any more reason to note that mock drafts are entirely about predicting the unpredictable.)

So what if, for once, we turned our attention to the festivities of March? What if, instead of projecting what all 32 teams are going to do on draft day, we just handled free agency first?

Here, we’ve tried to do that — with a twist. Since mock fever has already struck the masses, we decided to predict the first round of 2018’s draft … with only free agents. The order of team selections has been kept the same, but instead of college’s top prospects as potential draft picks, we’ve narrowed the pool to the best veterans set to become available March 14.

Here’s the lowdown: Only unrestricted free agents were included, and a handful of veterans who are virtual locks for the franchise tag or a contract extension — Drew Brees, Le’Veon Bell, DeMarcus Lawrence, Allen Robinson and Lamarcus Joyner — were not eligible
