Bradley Chubb, DE, North Carolina State
Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

Almost all of the prospects above are expected to go in the first round or at least close to it, except for one: Shaquem Griffin.
Griffin has a great story, of course, coming out of UCF. Born with amniotic band syndrome—a condition that left him with an underdeveloped hand, which was amputated as a child, Griffin has overcome the odds to become an NFL prospect.
He dazzled at the NFL Scouting Combine and got enough praise that he will be drafted at some point, just not in the first round.
The linebacker Griffin might be better suited as a pass-rusher in 2018 just to get more acclimated to the game and let coaches figure out how to properly use him going forward.
Griffin will make his way to the podium. It’s just a matter of what round?
The Draft in Arlington
According to Barry Horn of Dallas Morning News, approximately 215,000 people have registered for the NFL draft ticket lottery.
Horn also noted that the league plans to make 60,000 tickets available for fans.
To put that in perspective, there were only 12,000 made available in 2017.
The environment should be loud and raucous, but it will also make for much more intriguing draft-watching experience from home.
