Wednesday saw the top two quarterback prospects in the NCAA, USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen, declare for the 2018 NFL draft. 

 

With their intentions clear for now, the early consensus is that these two passers in some combination will be the first and second selections of the draft, which belong to the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants. 

 

Here is how we think the first round will shake out:
