College football is already in midseason form, but for some players, their NFL Draft prospects are equally important. Here is the latest Mock Draft after Week 5.

Four weeks of college football is just enough of a sample size to start drawing the line between which 32 players are worthy of becoming first round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. There was some shake up week over week and the order of selection remains fluid. The most notable difference from last week’s mock draft? There’s a new No. 1 overall selection.

The quarterback position reigns supreme once again, but the issue of supply and demand contrasted with talent makes it a hard nut to crack. There are a dozen NFL teams that would love a quarterback to fall into their laps, but the pool they have to choose from is decidedly shallow. The gunslingers that hope to keep themselves in contention for the higher picks will have more opportunities to prove themselves as conference play begins, but there a several that will probably be drafted much higher than their talent warrants.

Two NFL teams are without a first round pick in 2018. The Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs parted with their first round selections a year ago in order to draft what they hope will be the quarterback of the future. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is warming the bench as expected, but Texans’ rookie Deshaun Watson has already won his first pro game.

So, without further delay. Here’s how our Post-Week 5 edition of Round 1 of our 2018 NFL Mock Draft.
