NFL- Mock 2019 Draft

by Steven Wasco

#1 Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray- Quarterback

Kliff Kingsbury wants his own guy and will get it. Whatever happens with Josh Rosen will happen but Kingsbury wants to create his own team with his own pick at Quarterback. The reason why the likely selection of Murray is him cancelling his visit to Washington. 

#2 San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa- Defensive End

With the 49ers settled at Quarterback they will bolster their defense with a blue chip talent like Nick Bosa who will be perfect to pair with newly acquired Dee Ford.  

#3 New York Jets: Josh Allen- Outside Linebacker

There are rumors that the Jets are going to trade out of the #3 pick. However, assuming that they don’t I believe that they will take Edge Rusher Josh Allen to help them get after Tom Brady.  

#4 Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams- Defensive Tackle

Williams is a Top 5 talent who is a dual threat to get to the Quarterback and stop the run. He can also play inside 3-tech or outside to set the edge. His speed and size will make him a force on any defensive line.  

#5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin White- Inside Linebacker

With the departure of Kwon Alexander the Buccaneers need to bolster their defense. White is a great linebacker who can help on the inside and be an essential defensive piece to build around. 

#6 New York Giants: Montez Sweat- Defensive End

If the Giants are going to stick with Eli Manning as Quarterback then they need to improve the rest of the roster around Eli and Saquon especially on the defensive side where they were gashed several times. Getting Montez Sweet who ran a 4.41 – 40 Yard Dash would definitely help improve this defense.  

#7 Jacksonville Jaguars: Ed Oliver- Defensive Tackle

Oliver is the perfect 3-technique on the inside and will be a great replacement for Malik Jackson. He is another defensive tackle who can play the inside and outside of any defensive line which makes him a matchup nightmare.  

#8 Detroit Lions: Jawaan Taylor- Offensive Tackle

Taylor is a physical beast as an offensive tackle. With a line that was a sift sometimes getting Taylor would bolster the Lions Offensive Line significantly.  

#9 Buffalo Bills: Jonah Williams- Offensive Tackle

The Bills need to protect their young franchise Quarterback Josh Allen. Getting a stud at Tackle like Williams would help greatly.  

#10 Denver Broncos: Brian Burns- Defensive End/ Outside Linebacker 

The Broncos have a severe need at Defensive End and Defensive Tackle and Brian Burns would fill that need. He has tremendous upside and is an extremely hard worker. His high motor and high character will help bolster Vic Fangio’s defense.  

#11 Cincinnati Bengals: Dwayne Haskins- Quarterback

Zach Taylor and Bengals brass were at Haskins Pro-Day and if the Bengals want to get Daltons successor, Haskins could be the second Quarterback off the board. The Redskins or Dolphins could move up and take him but if not, Haskins could go here, 13, or 15. 

#12 Green Bay Packers: TJ Hockenson- Tight End

Jimmy Graham has shown that he has lost more than a step. Plus with the exit of Randall Cobb there are a lot of targets left on the field for fast and physical receivers in the middle. His abilities are of the same set as Travis Kelce so he can be a force in the middle or a field stretcher.  

#13 Miami Dolphins: Drew Lock- Quarterback

The Dolphins are rebuilding and most teams would wait a year or two to get their Quarterback. I believe if Lock falls to the Dolphins at 13 he would be too good to pass up. He has big arm talent that makes defenses scared and if he has good weapons around him, the Dolphins would be back in business as a threat in the AFC.  

#14 Atlanta Falcons: Christian Wilkins- Defensive Tackle

Wilkins can fill in multiple needs for the Falcons Defensive line. He can stop the run but also get to the quarterback making him one of the better dual threat interior lineman for Dan Quinn to utilize. 

#15 Washington Redskins: Daniel Jones- Quarterback

If the Redskins are interviewing all the top Quarterbacks in the draft that means that Alex Smith’s injury is probably career ending. So the Redskins who have Colt McCoy and Case Keenum will bolster their Quarterback Room with Daniel Jones. His arm talent and accuracy are perfect for Jay Gruden’s offense who needs a young stud and a  future franchise Quarterback.  

#16 Carolina Panthers: Andre Dillard- Offensive Tackle

Matt Khalil’s retirement created a very big need at Left Tackle. Andre Dilliard is a physical beast that can step in day one and play at left or right tackle.  

#17 New York Giants (From Cleveland Browns): DK Metcalf- Wide Receiver

The Giants can go Quarterback or replace their depleted Wide Receiver core here. I think if they’re set on staying with Eli, taking a game breaking receiver like Metcalf makes sense here. His blazing 4.43- 40 Yard Dash will take the top off any defense and give the Giants a great #1 at Receiver.  

#18 Minnesota Vikings: Cody Ford- Offensive Tackle 

The Vikings biggest need is their offensive line. Upgrading their Tackle position with a bruiser like Ford will be tremendously beneficial.  

#19 Tennessee Titans: Marquise Brown- Wide Receiver

The Titans are making it a priority to finally surround Marcus Mariota with talent around him. Marquise Brown is one of the better receivers in this draft and if he falls to the Titans he would be an instant starter. 

#20 Pittsburgh Steelers: Devin Bush- Inside Linebacker

Bush was a hard player to pick. He could go as high as 11 to the Bengals or anywhere in between but if he lands on the Steelers lap, they will take him here. The Steelers like his sideline to sideline speed. With Shazier looking better and better each year Bush could whether play alongside Shazier or lead the Steelers in the middle. 

#21 Seattle Seahawks: Dexter Lawrence- Defensive Tackle

Lawrence is a big bodied run stuffer who will help clog holes in the middle and has speed to get to the Quarterback. Like many of the defensive lineman in this draft he can also play on the outside to set the edge as well. 

#22 Baltimore Ravens: AJ Brown- Wide Receiver 

The Ravens are building around Lamar Jackson but they have no Wide Receivers. Taking a tall and physical receiver like AJ Brown who fits the John Harbaugh receiver type makes sense here. Brown is physical at the point of the catch and can play the JuJu Smith Schuster role of going inside or out. 

#23 Houston Texans: Kaleb McGary- Offensive Tackle 

The Texans need to protect Deshaun Watson, the Texans are a top tier team but their biggest weakness is the offensive line. McGary would be a great Tackle to protect Watson’s blind side.  

#24 Oakland Raiders (From Chicago Bears): Greedy Williams- Cornerback 

Raiders need a playmaker in the defensive backfield and Williams is the top corner in the Draft. He has great measureables, great speed, and high motor athleticism. He’ll help bring a much needed overhaul to the Raiders porous defense. 

#25 Philadelphia Eagles: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson- Safety 

Malcom Jenkins is getting older and Rodney McLeod isn’t a world breaker. So the Eagles would do well to get a tackling machine like CGJ.  

#26 Indianapolis Colts: Jerry Tillery- Defensive Tackle 

The Colts got a lot better on defense but they could get even better. Tillery was dominant in college and if he can bring that consistency from college to the NFL then the Colts will get a steal at 26. 

#27 Oakland Raiders (From Dallas Cowboys): Josh Jacobs- Running Back 

The Raiders used their first two picks to bolster their defense, but now they need to start improving their offense. Doug Martin and Isaiah Crowell are not world beaters and consistently underwhelm. Josh Johnson is a consistent playmaker and would provide a spark for the Raiders offense.  

#28 Los Angeles Chargers: Rashan Gray- Defensive End 

Rashan Gray moves back in the draft because of the Labral tear in his shoulder. It is said he can play through it but it does drop his value to the late 1st. I believe the Chargers will take the risk on him as he would fit Gus Bradley’s hybrid defense perfectly.  

#29 Seattle Seahawks: Garrett Bradbury- Center  

One of the Seahawks biggest weakness is their offensive line. Garrett Bradbury is a leader that will help keep the $140 Million Quarterback Russell Wilson upright.  

#30 Green Bay Packers (From New Orleans Saints): Dalton Risner- Offensive Line 

Risner was one of the best right tackles in College and with Bulaga getting older it would make sense to get a young stud on the line that can also kick inside to guard.  

#31 Los Angeles Rams: Byron Murphy- Cornerback 

The Rams only have four picks so they need to address specific needs. Marcus Peters was a disaster and Aqib Talib is old, so addressing Cornerback with a good young talent would be beneficial to the Rams.  

#32 New England Patriots: Noah Fant- Tight End 

With Gronk retiring, the Patriots need a new field stretching Tight End. Fant is fast and physical. He runs fast and can bulldoze defenders when he has the ball in his hands.
