As the NFL off-season hits full gear, SB Nation is mocking the mock drafts.

Every year, draft analysts throw out some predictions that are well, just terrible. And so the site put together a list of the worst draft takes from 2018 to date.

Josh Allen vs. Lamar Jackson: Mel Kiper said that Josh Allen is better than Lamar Jackson. Though Allen is tall and has a strong arm, his stats leave a lot to be desired.

Sam Darnold: An anonymous NFC scout said, during Senior Bowl week, that Sam Darnold has a bad face. “Loopy motion. Bad face. Overrated,” the scout said.

Lamar Jackson: He was a very good quarterback at Louisville, so good in fact, that he won the Heisman in 2016. But there have been multiple takes saying Jackson is better suited to play wide receiver in the NFL. Those have gotten a justifiably poor reception.
