With the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft finished, there are still extremely talented draft prospects available such as wide receiver Christian Kirk from Texas A&M, defensive end Duke Ejiofor from Wake Forest, and cornerback Josh Jackson from Iowa. Each of those players are talented enough to have been drafted in the first round, but they have still yet to get drafted.

As the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft is over, each team has needs to take care of. The players remaining in the draft are not as talented as the players drafted in round one. It is up to these players to prove themselves to their new teams that they are the best of the rest.
