2019 NFL Draft: Mock Draft Alternative

Introduction: The 2019 NFL draft is roughly a week away and there’s trade rumors circulating around the league that we could see the most trade activity in this year’s draft than we’ve seen in a very long time. Unfortunately; my mock draft will not have trades as it is extremely difficult to project each team’s full objectives.

  1. Arizona: Kyler Murray (QB) Oklahoma-5’10/195: Cardinals roll the dice and get a dynamic signal caller in Murray, but will he be able to handle the physical element in the NFL.
  2. San Francisco: Nick Bosa (DE) Ohio State-6’4/265: Bosa solidifies the defensive front for the 49ers and will be as dominant as his brother.
  3. New York Jets: Josh Allen (OLB) Kentucky-6’5/240: Jets could go with Quinnen Williams here, but opt for Allen who was a one man wrecking crew at Kentucky.
  4. Oakland: Quinnen Williams (DT/DE) Alabama-6’4/290: Williams will be a disruptive force anywhere along the defensive line.
  5. Tampa Bay: Montez Sweat (DE) Mississippi State-6’6/260: Sweat is just too good to pass up here for the Bucs. Sweat would infuse much needed youth and talent on the edge.
  6. New York Giants: Ed Oliver (DT) Houston-6’3/285: Oliver will provide instant production to a Giants defensive line that was man handled in 2018.
  7. Jacksonville: Jawaan Taylor (OT) Florida-6’5/335: Jacksonville could go defense here, but opt to find an offensive tackle to protect newly acquired QB Nick Foles.
  8. Detroit: Rashan Gary (DE) Michigan-6’5/285:  Gary would give the Lions a play maker at the defensive end position that will get there defense going in the right direction.
  9. Buffalo: Devin White (ILB) LSU-6’1/255: White would give the Bills a play maker at the linebacker position (inside or outside) playing alongside last year’s 1st round pick Tremaine Edmunds.
  10. Denver: Drew Lock (QB) Missouri-6’4/225: Lock is the most polished QB prospect in this draft and will sit a year behind Joe Flacco  in 2019 and take over in 2020.
  11. Cincinnati: Clelin Ferrell (DE) Clemson-6’5/260: Ferrell was as consistent as they come for the Clemson Tigers and would give the Bengals a solid edge rusher.
  12. Green Bay: T.J Hockenson (TE) Iowa-6’4/250: Hockenson is your complete tight end with exceptional blocking and passing skills.
  13.  Miami: D.K Metcalf (WR) Ole Miss-6’4/225: Metcalf is too talented to pass on for the Dolphins, who add a lethal weapon to replace Jarvis Landry.
  14.  Altanta: Christian Wilkins (DT) Clemson-6’4/310: Wilkins was part of the best defensive line in college football and will make an impact for the falcons.
  15.  Washington: Dwayne Haskins (QB) Ohio State-6’3/220: Washington’s patience pays off and with Keenum at the helm in 2019, Haskins will have time to learn and develop for 2020.
  16. Carolina: Jonah Williams (OT) Alabama-6’5/305: Williams is arguably the most talented and polished offensive tackle in the draft.
  17.  Giants: Daniel Jones (QB) Duke-6’5/225: Jones sits for a year and learns behind arguably the greatest Giants quarterback of all time and takes over in 2020.
  18. Minnesota: Greedy Williams (CB) LSU-6’2/195: Minnesota selects the gifted cornerback in Williams, who will start from day one.
  19.  Tennessee: Brian Burns (DE/OLB Florida State-6’5/249: Burns freakish talent will be too much for the Titans to pass on. Burns will instantly give Tennessee a threat on the edge.
  20. Pittsburgh: Byron Murphy (CB) Washington-5’11/190: Murphy’s overall corner skills will help solidify the Steelers secondary.
  21.  Seattle: Deandre Baker (CB) Geogia-6’0/200: Seahawks could go in many directions here (Tight End, Defensive line or Wide Receiver) but opt for a solid corner in Baker who will provide solid pass coverage for the Seahawks.
  22. Baltimore: A.J Brown (WR) Ole Miss-6’1/225: Brown was part of the duo act with D.K Metcalf at Ole Miss that put fear into opposing secondary’s. 
  23. Houston: Andre Dillard (OT) Washington State-6’5/315: Dillard is already an establish pass protector and will solidify the right tackle position in Houston.
  24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry (WR) Arizona State-6’3/215: Raiders selects the rangy wide-out in Harry, who will give them an added weapon on the other side of Antonio Brown.
  25. Philadelphia: Devin Bush (ILB) Michigan-5’11/230: Bush would be a solid replacement for Jordan Hicks who opt for free agency.
  26. Indianapolis: Dexter Lawrence (DT) Clemson-6’4/345: Colts need more size on the defensive line and no one fits that label more than Lawrence who will provide solid run defense and neutralize the middle.
  27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs (RB) Alabama-5’10/216: Jacobs the first and only running back selected in round 1 and will add his playmaking skills for the Raiders.
  28. Los Angeles Chargers: Jeffery Simmons (DT) Mississippi State-6’4/305: Chargers can be patience with Simmons recovering from a torn ACL. Simmons was a top 10 pick before the injury and will remind everyone of Fletcher Cox when he returns; which could be in the second half of 2019.
  29. Kansas City: Johnathan Abram (S) Mississippi State-6’0/215: Abram seeks into the 1st round and will give the Chiefs a very physical presence at the safety position.
  30. Green Bay: Cody Ford (OT/OG) Oklahoma-6’2/335: Packers invested heavily on defense in free agency and used their first 1st round pick on a Tight End, now they need to rebuild the offensive line and Cody Ford is a massive linemen who compete for playing time at left guard against Lane Taylor.
  31. Los Angelos Rams: Nassir Adderley (CB) Delaware-5’11/190:  Adderley is the four and final cornerback selected in round one and will give the Rams more depth and a future star at the cornerback position.
  32. New England: Noah Fant (TE) Iowa-6’5/250: Patriots could go wide receiver here with Hakeen Butler still on the board. However; Fant’s talent and position is more of a need with the retirement of Rob Gronkoski. Tom Brady has a new Tight End and Red Zone threat to throw to.

Final Thoughts: These picks are a reflection of what I believe each will do and not what I believe they should do. Some of these selections would not be my top choice and some could be debatable as a few top prospects were left out.
