2019 NFL Mock Draft - 4/25/2019 - FINAL
1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray - QB (Oklahoma)
Arizona Cardinals

Hopefully the hay is in the barn now.  The Cardinals are the first team to take a QB in back to back years since the early 80s.  History folks.

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: Quinnen Williams - DT (Alabama)
New York Jets

The Jets have let everyone know they'd like to move down but instead they get who some consider to be the top player in the draft and a perfect interior disruptor for Gregg Williams' defense.

Quinnen Williams
4. Oakland Raiders: Ed Oliver - DT (Houston)
Oakland Raiders

Ed Oliver has been one of my favorites of this draft class since the fall.  Oakland gets a player often compared to Bengals DT Geno Atkins whose former DC is now working for the Raiders.

Ed Oliver
5. Tampa Bay Buccs: Devin White - ILB (LSU)
Tampa Bay Buccs

White gets the chance to prove he is the once in a generational player he says he is.  Coach Arians will love having a player with that type of confidence who plays with reckless abandon.

Devin White
6. New York Giants: Josh Allen - OLB (UK)
New York Giants

As I've said in previous mocks, the tea leaves make me think Gettleman is not going to take a QB here but build up the defensive front.  Here he gets the "falling" SEC sack leader in Josh Allen.

Josh Allen
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jonah Williams - OT (Alabama)
Jacksonville Jaguars

This pick could go a number of ways, including a different tackle (Jawaan Taylor) but I like Jonah Williams as the top tackle in this draft.  Foles needs protection and Williams will provide a ton of versatility for Jacksonville.  

Jonah Williams
8. Detroit Lions: T.J. Hockenson - TE (Iowa)
Detroit Lions

The Lions are a curious case as I've had Brian Burns mocked here for a few months.  Here the Lions get a "safe" player who is a true hybrid TE and will help both on the ground and in the air.

T.J. Hockenson
9. Washington Redskins: Dwayne Haskins - QB (OSU)
Washington Redskins

*** TRADE - Buffalo Bills ***

The Redskins make their move and leap in front of Denver and Cincinnati to make sure they get their guy.  Haskins will be a great fit in Gruden's West Coast offense.

Dwayne Haskins
10. Denver Broncos: Devin Bush - ILB (Mich)
Denver Broncos

Vic Fangio convinces his new boss to take an athletic and rangy linebacker over a QB.  An easy decision with Hockenson off the board.

Devin Bush
11. Cincinnati Bengals: Andre Dillard - OT (Washington St.)
Cincinnati Bengals

With both Devin-Linebackers off the board, the Bengals turn their attention to the offensive line.  Word has it they really like Andre Dillard who is considered the best pass-blocking lineman in the draft.

Andre Dillard
12. Houston Texans: Jawaan Taylor - OT (Florida)
Houston Texans

*** TRADE - Green Bay Packers ***

With two of the top 3 tackles gone, Houston gets nervous and moves up to snag Jawaan Taylor.  

Jawaan Taylor
13. Miami Dolphins: Brian Burns - DE (FSU)
Miami Dolphins

Miami goes after one of the top athletes in this draft with Florida State DE Brian Burns.  He provides a ton of dynamic ability to get after the passer but also drop into coverage if needed.  He could be the perfect weapon for new HC Brian Flores' defense.

Brian Burns
14. Atlanta Falcons: Montez Sweat - DE (Mississippi St.)
Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons and Dan Quinn go after another edge player.  Sweat could be a top 10 pick if not for some heart troubles and past off the field concerns.

Montez Sweat
15. Buffalo Bills: Christian Wilkins - DT (Clemson)
Buffalo Bills

*** TRADE - Washington Redskins ***

The Bills move back and still get their target in Clemson DT Christian Wilkins.  Wilkins should fill the hole left by Kyle Williams recent retirement both on the field and off it as he is considred a fantastic locker room presence.

Christian Wilkins
16. Carolina Panthers: Cody Ford - OT (Oklahoma)
Carolina Panthers

Carolina stays put and their gamble pays off as they get Cody Ford who could play RT or slide inside to guard.

Cody Ford
17. New York Giants: Daniel Jones - QB (Duke)
New York Giants

The heat is too much to ignore at this point.  It seems the Giants will gamble on taking their QB at 17 instead of 6.  Jones could be a nice fit for the run-oriented Giants.  The team still needs to invest in another tackle.

Daniel Jones
18. Philadelphia Eagles: Marquise Brown - WR (Oklahoma)
Philadelphia Eagles

*** TRADE - Minnesota Vikings ***

The Eagles get active and grab the top WR in the draft.  With WR Nelson Agholor potentially on the trade block this move would make sense.

Marquise Brown
19. Tennessee Titans: Rashan Gary - DE (Mich)
Tennessee Titans

The Titans are rumored to be interested in Drew Lock but need help in other places.  Interior offensive line would make sense here but I do not think the Titans expected to see Gary on the board.  If the former Buckeye head coach can get some juice out of the Wolverine, this could be the steal of the draft.

Rashan Gary
20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Rock Ya-Sin - CB (Temple)
Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are left empty handed in the linebacker department at this point so they turn their attention to the secondary.  Ya-Sin is a physical player who could be a welcomed addition to a typically soft Steelers secondary.

Rock Ya-Sin
21. Seattle Seahawks: Clelin Ferrell - DE (Clemson)
Seattle Seahawks

Seattle stays put and fills the gap left by trading Frank Clark to the Chiefs by taking one of the Clemson Three.

Clelin Ferrell
22. Baltimore Ravens: Garrett Bradbury - OC (North Carolina St.)
Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens look to be close to shoring up their edge with a potential signing of free agent DE Ziggy Ansah.  With this pick they invest in the offensive line and continued development of QB Lamar Jackson.

Garrett Bradbury
23. Green Bay Packers: Noah Fant - TE (Iowa)
Green Bay Packers

*** TRADE - Houston Texans ***

The other Iowa TE has been linked with the Packers most of the draft season.  Here they get the faster TE in Noah Fant who was a TD machine during his career for the Hawkeyes.  He'll be a matchup nightmare and could step in right away if the team parts with Jimmy Graham in the near future.

Noah Fant
24. Oakland Raiders: Josh Jacobs - RB (Alabama)
Oakland Raiders

Beast Mode has retired (again) and now the Raiders look to shore up their backfield.  Jacobs is considered by most as the top RB in the draft, despite not being a full-time starter at Alabama.  This is a bit of a risky pick but when has Gruden been risk averse?

Josh Jacobs
25. Minnesota Vikings: Chris Lindstrom - OG (Boston College)
Minnesota Vikings

*** TRADE - Philadelphia Eagles ***

The Vikings address their guard position and get a fantastic addition who is solid in both the run and passing game.  He is a day one starter and immediate boost to the effectiveness of QB Kirk Cousins.

Chris Lindstrom
26. Indianapolis Colts: Jerry Tillery - DT (Notre Dame)
Indianapolis Colts

The Colts continue to build up their defense with the rising Jerry Tillery out of Notre Dame.  

Jerry Tillery
27. Oakland Raiders: Greedy Williams - CB (LSU)
Oakland Raiders

Oakland uses their 3rd first rounder on a speedy corner out of LSU.  His length is a match for what DC Paul Guenther likes in his cornerbacks but he could pack on a few pounds.  He may lack physical attributes, which cause him to lose ground initially, but his 4.37 speed allows him to recover quickly.

Greedy Williams
28. Los Angeles Chargers: Drew Lock - QB (Missouri)
Los Angeles Chargers

The fall of Drew Lock finally ends as the Chargers nab the heir apparent to Philip Rivers.

Drew Lock
29. Seattle Seahawks: Justin Layne - CB (MSU)
Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks could trade out of this spot but if they stay, I can see them addressing the corner position and taking Layne out of Michigan State. 

Justin Layne
30. Green Bay Packers: Dalton Risner - OT (KSU)
Green Bay Packers

Risner finds his way into the first round and could take any spot along the Packers offensive line.  

Dalton Risner
31. Los Angeles Rams: Dexter Lawrence - DT (Clemson)
Los Angeles Rams

The Rams will need to address the offensive line at some point but the value may not be the best here.  Instead they take a NT to fill the hole left by Suh. 

Dexter Lawrence
32. New England Patriots: Jeffery Simmons - DT (Mississippi St.)
New England Patriots

Simmons tore his ACL and will miss the 2019 season but this hasn't stopped the Patriots in the past.  Simmons is considered a top 10 pick when healthy and after winning the Super Bowl, the Patriots can afford to invest in their future.

Jeffery Simmons
