We’re 21 days out from the 2018 NFL Draft. Every day between now and then we’ll be predicting a different team’s draft pick until we get to the Jacksonville Jaguars!

The No. 7 overall pick is in and with 1,130 total votes cast, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have bolstered their secondary and selected strong safety Derwin James with more than half the vote.

2018 BCC mock draft results

No. 1: Cleveland Browns — QB Sam Darnold

No. 2: New York Giants — RB Saquon Barkley

No. 3: New York Jets — QB Josh Rosen

No. 4: Cleveland Browns — DE Bradley Chubb

No. 5: Denver Broncos — QB Baker Mayfield

No. 6: Indianapolis Colts — OL Quenton Nelson

No. 7: Tampa Bay Buccaneers — SS Derwin James

Now it’s the Chicago Bears with the No. 8 overall pick.

Possible picks

  1. CB Josh Jackson — As one of the top cornerbacks in the draft, I have to expect the Bears will look to upgrade their secondary in the first round. He’s one of the favorites.
  2. DE Harold Landry — A darkhorse pick, but he’s the second-best edge rusher in the draft behind Bradley Chubb.
  3. LB Tremaine Edmunds — Bradley Chubb would be the automatic pick if he were here, but he’s not so why not go with Edmunds out of Virginia Tech? He can rush the passer, he can cover in the passing game, he plugs run gaps well — go get him.
  4. FS Minkah Fitzpatrick — If the Bears want to upgrade their secondary with a versatile defensive back, they could make Fitzpatrick the pick.
