2018 NFL mock draft: Packers address defense in first round

16 of 16

Kolton Miller. 30. player. 60. . T. UCLA

The Vikings’ largest need is as obvious as they come: they need offensive linemen, both inside and outside.

They just spent a boat load of money signing Kirk Cousins and drafted Dalvin Cook last year, so they need to bolster this offensive line to protect them both.

Kolton Miller is absolutely massive, he is 6-foot-8 and 310 pounds. He is certainly what most people would consider a mauler at the tackle position. He is powerful, most smaller defenders stand no chance when trying to get past Miller, but he could struggle with pass rushers with a strong bull rush and speed rushers with a quick burst at the line of scrimmage. I am sure whichever team drafts Miller will want him to add some bulk to his frame, and he has the perfect frame to be able to do that.

47. . OL. Pittsburgh. Brian O'Neill. 31. player

The Patriots are another team, like the Saints, that could go after Lamar Jackson or Mason Rudolph late in the first round to groom behind Tom Brady. Instead, I see them going after a player to protect their QB, after losing Nate Solder.

O’Neill is a versatile offensive lineman, he plays tackle, but is built more like a guard, and was athletic enough at Pitt to be a third tight end who actually caught passes.

He had a very shaky performance at the Senior Bowl, which could deter some teams from drafting him in the early rounds, but if you watch his senior season tape against guys like Bradley Chubb, he did a heck of a job.

. RB. Georgia. Sony Michel. 32. player. 54

The Eagles are a team with very few holes, hence the reason they just won the Super Bowl. They are most likely going to be drafting with the best player available approach here.

I believe they add Sony Michel to their backfield to give Carson Wentz another weapon in the run game, as well as a pass catcher out of the backfield. I realize they already have a pretty full stable of running backs, but none are better than Michel, except possibly Jay Ajayi.

Ajayi and Michel could provide a 1-2 punch out of the backfield that make this team even scarier than they already are. Wentz now has more weapons on offense than he knows what to do with.
