2019 NFL Mock Draft - 4/13/2019
1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray - QB (Texas A&M)
Arizona Cardinals

Kyler and his agent recently met with the Cardinals so this appears to be happening.  This is a very curious situation and it'll be interesting to see it play out in the desert.

Kyler Murray
2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa - DE (OSU)
San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco brings another Bosa back to California and gets the passer they've been longing to have for years.

Nick Bosa
3. New York Jets: Josh Allen - OLB (UK)
New York Jets

The Jets are likely looking to move down in this situation but if they stay they will add an elite talent to their defense which needs to be able to rattle Tom Brady and chase down the other Josh Allen in Buffalo.

Josh Allen
4. Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams - DT (Alabama)
Oakland Raiders

Oakland would love for Allen or Bosa to be here but I think Quinnen Williams could also be a talent Raider DC Guenther would love to have on his defense.  

Quinnen Williams
5. Tampa Bay Buccs: Montez Sweat - DE (Mississippi St.)
Tampa Bay Buccs

The popular pick here has been Devin White but the overall consensus is that White is no where near the player of Roquan Smith who went 8th to Chicago last year.  With that being the case, I cannot see White going in the top 5.  For years linebackers usually fall lower than projected and I think White will do the same.  Sweat is a dynamic player at a premier position with high production and elite athletic scores and results from combine workouts.  If his heart checks out, I could see him being in play for Tampa.

Montez Sweat
6. New York Giants: Jawaan Taylor - OT (Florida)
New York Giants

Passing on a QB last year, the drafting of Barkley, and trading away of one of the top WR in the game points to passing on QB again.  I think the Giants are going to go old-school and build the trenches and form a physical identity.  The Giants have two #1 picks and I think they'll go OT and BPA defensive line in some combo.  Here we'll go with Jawaan Taylor out of Florida to help anchor the run-game.

Jawaan Taylor
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jonah Williams - OT (Alabama)
Jacksonville Jaguars

Nick Foles is the new QB for Jacksonville and I expect EVP of Football Ops Tom Coughlin to protect him.  Jonah Williams entered the offseason as the #1 OL in the draft but he has cooled off a little.  He provides flexibility as he could play tackle (as he'll be sure to tell you) but is likely moving to guard in the NFL.

Jonah Williams
8. Detroit Lions: Brian Burns - DE (FSU)
Detroit Lions

The Lions, I think, would most likely prefer to move down a few spots and still snag their pass rusher.  Brian Burns is another productive edge player with 23 career sacks.  He wowed at the combine and showed the ability to cover with fluid movements which will add versatility to any defense he joins.

Brian Burns
9. Buffalo Bills: Ed Oliver - DT (Houston)
Buffalo Bills

As much as I want to put an OT here to assist in Josh Allen's development, I think they can address this in Day 2.  Here the Bills get an elite talent at a need position in DT Ed Oliver.  Because of his size Oliver has been compared to Aaron Donald and Geno Atkins, both All-Pro players.

Ed Oliver
10. Denver Broncos: Drew Lock - QB (Missouri)
Denver Broncos

Broncos get their next heir to the QB throne in Drew Lock.  Lock has a nice arm with the ability to create on the run albeit with so-so results.  

Drew Lock
11. Cincinnati Bengals: Devin White - ILB (LSU)
Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals fill their biggest need with the draft's top talent at the position.  White plays like he was shot out of a cannon which results in mind-blowing plays with a side of frustration.  

Devin White
12. Green Bay Packers: T.J. Hockenson - TE (Iowa)
Green Bay Packers

Green Bay could use a versatile player like Hockenson and with their defense getting a lot of attention in free agency, I see the team finding the best offensive weapon available.

T.J. Hockenson
13. Miami Dolphins: Dwayne Haskins - QB (OSU)
Miami Dolphins

Miami has traded away Ryan Tannehill and could be tanking for the future but I don't see it as a valid option.  With Haskins available, I think the Dolphins take their QB now.  Haskins is a prototypical pocket QB who is still ascending with only starting one-year at Ohio State.

Dwayne Haskins
14. Atlanta Falcons: Christian Wilkins - DT (Clemson)
Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons need help along the defensive and offensive lines.  At 14 they add Clemson DT Wilkins who will be a nice complement next to Grady Jarrett.  Wilkins also provides another leader for the locker room.

Christian Wilkins
15. Washington Redskins: Marquise Brown - WR (Okla)
Washington Redskins

I think its highly likely the Redskins could come away with Josh Rosen and if that is the case, then he'll need some weapons.  I like Brown has the top WR in this class and think he'll add immediate big play ability to this offense.  Gruden needs players who can run good routes for his West Coast offense which is another reason Brown gets the nod over D.K. Metcalf.

Marquise Brown
16. Carolina Panthers: Rashan Gary - DE (Mich)
Carolina Panthers

I think Gary could fall on draft day because of his total lack of consistent production at Michigan.  There are reports his shoulders were only 40% healthy but that seems like agent-speak.  In this case, it works in the favor of the Panthers who get an athletic player oozing with a ton of potential.

Rashan Gary
17. New York Giants: Clelin Ferrell - DE (Clemson)
New York Giants

The Giants go after their DL and take a falling Ferrell out of Clemson.  Giants GM Gettleman adds another big-body DE to build up their defense.

Clelin Ferrell
18. Minnesota Vikings: Andre Dillard - OT (Washington St.)
Minnesota Vikings

Dillard is one of the best (maybe the best) pass protector in this draft and will add a boost to the passing game for Cousins and the new extended WR Adam Thielen.

Andre Dillard
19. Tennessee Titans: Cody Ford - OT (Okla)
Tennessee Titans

Cody Ford played RT at Oklahoma but projects to Guard and should be able to provide interior help to the OL or kick back out to tackle if needed.

Cody Ford
20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Devin Bush - ILB (Mich)
Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers get the rising and rangy Wolverine LB, Devin Bush, to fill their inside linebacker need. 

Devin Bush
21. Seattle Seahawks: Deionte Thompson - S (Alabama)
Seattle Seahawks

With only 4 picks in this draft, I fully expect Seattle to trade out of this spot.  If TWO of the four projected first round QBs are still available, I think its even more likely to happen.  For now, with no trades, I think Seattle addresses the secondary and a player who can fill the loss of Earl Thomas.  Thompson has superior ball skills which gives him the edge over the top rated safety in Johnathan Abram.

Deionte Thompson
22. Baltimore Ravens: D.K. Metcalf - WR (Ole Miss)
Baltimore Ravens

Ozzie is gone so all bets are off here.  The Ravens have shored up a few of the holes created in free agency but THE hole which has existed for years is WR.  Metcalf has some medical history to him and tested poorly in agility and route running but he is big and FAST.  He has a large catch radius which is a positive when your QB is the less-than-accurate Lamar Jackson.

D.K. Metcalf
23. Houston Texans: Greedy Williams - CB (LSU)
Houston Texans

Houston decides to shore up their secondary with the addition of Greedy Williams.  I'm not sure if Greedy will actually fall this far on draft day but if he does, he could be a steal.  There are questions about his physicality but he has great ball skills matched with smooth moves and speed to cover the T.Y. Hilton's of the division.

Greedy Williams
24. Oakland Raiders: Noah Fant - TE (Iowa)
Oakland Raiders

Plain and simple.  If Noah Fant is on the board, I'm not sure Gruden could pass up adding an athletic freak who could run the seam and blow open the offense.

Noah Fant
25. Philadelphia Eagles: Johnathan Abram - S (Mississippi St.)
Philadelphia Eagles

After re-signing CB Ronald Darby in free agency, the Eagles continue to solidify the secondary with Mississippi State's hard hitting Johnathan Abram.

Johnathan Abram
26. Indianapolis Colts: Byron Murphy - CB (Wash)
Indianapolis Colts

Colts add a smart instinctive player to their secondary. 

Byron Murphy
27. Oakland Raiders: Rock Ya-Sin - CB (Temple)
Oakland Raiders

Mayock adds his corner-brethren to the Raiders and get a confident, tough, and physical player who will bring some attitude back to Oakland.

Rock Ya-Sin
28. Los Angeles Chargers: Jerry Tillery - DT (Notre Dame)
Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers grab the productive DT from Notre Dame as they continue to shore up their defensive line with althletic disruptors.

Jerry Tillery
29. Kansas City Chiefs: Josh Jacobs - RB (Alabama)
Kansas City Chiefs

Kareem Hunt is gone and Jacobs is still on the board in this scenario.  He may be the best player available for the Chiefs and will fill an immediate hole on an offense which could also be without their top wideout.

Josh Jacobs
30. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Brown - WR (Ole Miss)
Green Bay Packers

The Packers add another weapon for Aaron Rodgers in Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown.  Brown was highly productive in college and had a nice combine workout, running a 4.49 forty.  He should provide a nice upgrade and replacement for Randall Cobb.

A.J. Brown
31. Los Angeles Rams: Garrett Bradbury - OC (North Carolina St.)
Los Angeles Rams

The Rams add the best interior lineman in the draft to help protect Jared Goff and their efficient offense.

Garrett Bradbury
32. New England Patriots: Daniel Jones - QB (Duke)
New England Patriots

The Patriots collect the next backup to Tom Brady along with a 5th year option.  The way Brady is playing in his 40s, the Patriots may need it.

Daniel Jones
