The 2018 NFL Draft is still several weeks away, but the mock drafts are flowing in fast and furiously. Even the very best mock drafts don’t end up being very accurate — especially when you extend them beyond the first round — but they do have some entertainment value.

So with that said, let’s check in on where the Cougars are being projected right now. These projections figure to change in the coming weeks following the NFL Combine and WSU’s pro day.

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller published a seven-round mock draft which included three Cougars.

— Luke Falk to the Arizona Cardinals in the third round (No. 79 overall)

— Hercules Mata’afa to the Chicago Bears in the fourth round (No. 101 overall)

— Cole Madison to Washington in the seventh round (No. 205 overall)’s Chad Reuter published a three-round mock draft that included Mata’afa, but no other Cougs.

— Hercules Mata’afa to the Carolina Panthers in the third round (No. 85 overall)
