One of the most exciting times in football's offseason arrives on Thursday with the first round of the NFL Draft 2018 edition. This year's draft class presents a good deal of talent for squads to potentially choose from, with quarterbacks continuing to be under the spotlight. Based on the fact that teams could land a top prospect like Sam Darnold [VIDEO], Josh Allen, or Baker Mayfield, there could also be some draft day trades going down. Here's the latest preview of the latest draft with start time, TV channel, and how to watch the NFL Draft 2018 live streaming online.

Team order and picks

The Cleveland Browns will have the coveted No 1 pick and speculation has continued over whether they'll hold the pick or trade it away.

Current mock drafts have suggested they'll opt for a quarterback with the top pick, but there are some analysts who believe it might be smarter to take running back Saquon Barkley before the Giants have a chance with the No. 2 pick to scoop up the Penn State star.

The NY Jets select third in this year's NFL Draft and are predicted to take a quarterback. That could very well we Josh Allen or Baker Mayfield. The Browns will pick once again at the No. 4 spot. Rumors have suggested a trade here, possibly with the Buffalo Bills, so that the Bills can select Sam Darnold. There's also potential that Cleveland is able to draft Saquon Barkley or defensive end Bradley Chubb.

The Denver Broncos hold the fifth pick and may opt for guard Quenton Nelson from Notre Dame, but they could also look towards drafting any of the available quarterbacks at this spot.

The Colts will draft in the No. 6 spot with Chubb a potential pick. It's also possible Indianapolis trades down, or they draft linebacker Roquan Smith.

Rounding out the top 10 of the first-round order will be Tampa Bay at No. 7, Arizona at No. 8, San Francisco at No. 9, and the Oakland Raiders at the No. 10 spot. Among the potential NFL Draft picks are safety Derwin James, quarterback Josh Rosen, and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.
