2019 NFL Mock Drafts

  • # Team Player Pos
    1 Nick BosaOhio St., Jr DE

    Time for an enormous draft clich?. The Raiders will run this pick to the podium. Bosa is one of the best edge-rushing prospects of the past five years, and the Raiders have just a tiny, minuscule, hard-to-identify need at defensive end.

    2 Daniel JonesDuke, Jr QB

    Can't get enough of this pairing at the moment. Jones is a good-sized refined pocket passer who's played under the tutelage of David Cutcliffe in college. Sounds like Eli. The Giants love Eli.

    3 Greg LittleOle Miss, Jr OT

    Did you see the game Thursday night? Josh Rosen had an avalanche of Broncos pass-rushers in his face all evening. Little has serious left tackle size, athleticism and power.

    4 Greedy WilliamsLSU, Soph CB

    The 49ers could go in a variety of directions here, but this time I think they avoid another defensive lineman in Round 1 and draft the successor to Richard Sherman at one of the outside cornerback spots.

    5 N'Keal HarryArizona St., Jr WR

    Once thought to have one of the most dangerous receiver groups in the AFC with Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman ... the Browns are reeling at receiver. Harry is a high-point specialist who's agile after the catch and isn't easily brought to the turf.

    2017 College Stats

    7 42 572 13.6 5
    6 Ed OliverHouston, Jr DT

    Yes, offense is a significantly bigger need, and Jonah Williams would be an option here. But with Kyle Williams likely playing in his final season in 2018, the Bills will need a penetrating three technique starting in 2019 and can't pass on Oliver's immense talent.

    7 Clelin FerrellClemson, Jr DE

    Indianapolis' defense is improving, yet there's still a need for an alpha presence on the edge. Ferrell has developed each season at Clemson and has All-Pro potential.

    8 Justin HerbertOregon, Jr QB

    Dream come true for John Elway and the Broncos. They get what they hope to be their franchise quarterback in Herbert, a tall, athletic but somewhat raw quarterback with a live and mostly accurate arm.

    6 1613 63.1 17 5
    9 Deandre BakerGeorgia, Sr CB

    Tampa Bay needs to bolster its secondary. We've all heard that a lot recently. Baker is a feisty, ball-skills cornerback with impeccable mirroring skills. Teams won't want to throw at him, and when they do, he'll find the football often.

    10 Dexter LawrenceClemson, Jr DT

    Dan Quinn likes an enormous, block-eating two-gapper at nose tackle to not only free up his linebackers but the three technique -- in Atlanta's case, Grady Jarrett -- on the interior. Lawrence is gigantic and actually has impressive pass-rushing skills.

    11 Jonah WilliamsAlabama, Jr OT

    Ideal prospect here for the Texans, the club with arguably the worst offensive line in football and a quarterback who doesn't exactly help himself when when it comes to moving in the pocket. Williams is a fundamentally sound tackle and can play guard if need be.

    12 A.J. BrownOle Miss, Jr WR

    Time for the Jets to upgrade at receiver for Sam Darnold. Brown is what has become the new-age "big slot" wideout and he's a blast to watch after the catch. He has strong hands and a muscular frame for high-point situations too.

    7 50 650 13 4
    13 Deionte ThompsonAlabama, Jr FS

    Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has gotten off to a tremendous start but needs help at the other safety position. Green Bay lands another Alabama prospect with awesome range in Thompson.

    14 Dre'Mont JonesOhio St., Jr DT

    The Titans need more interior pass-rush beyond Jurrell Casey. Jones is arguably the most polished pass-rushing defensive tackle in college football and, in a pinch, can play on the edge.

    15 Zach AllenBoston College, Sr DE

    The Panthers still have one of the better defenses in the NFC. After Julius Peppers calls it quits, Carolina will have a sizable need at defensive end. Allen is a big, athletic, three-down edge-rusher.

    16 Dalton RisnerKansas St., Sr OT

    The Vikings have gotten into a groove of late yet the need to address the offensive line won't go away this season. Risner is NFL-ready and would improve Minnesota's run and pass games.

    17 Brian BurnsFlorida St., Jr DE

    Even if Ziggy Ansah is brought back, the Lions must add another threatening defensive end to their defense. Burns is an long, explosive defensive end with his best football in front of him.

    18 Ryan FinleyNC State, Sr QB

    Perfect match here. Finley is a super-experienced pocket passer who's played under center and can throw with anticipation. The Jaguars can't be held back by Blake Bortles anymore.

    2017 College Stats

    5 1621 69.5 10 3
    19 Jachai PoliteFlorida, Jr DE

    Charles Harris, who the Dolphins picked in the first round of the 2017 draft, has been a disappointment on the edge. In Polite, Miami would inherit some risk but would get explosiveness and bend around the corner.

    20 Kelvin HarmonNC State, Jr WR

    Dallas must give Dak Prescott more weapons at receiver, and Harmon as No. 1 wide receiver written all over him. He has the size, athleticism, route-running skills, and jump-ball ability to thrive on the outside in the NFL.

    2017 College Stats

    5 33 534 16.2 2
    21 Amani OruwariyePenn St., Sr CB

    Pittsburgh's greatest need is in the secondary. Oruwariye is a lengthy, fluid cornerback ready to match up with some of the game's best receivers on the outside.

    22 JJ Arcega-WhitesideStanford, Sr WR

    Arcega-Whiteside is the best "rebounder" in a great receiver class loaded with big, high-pointers. He would be a welcomed addition to Washington in the red zone.

    2017 College Stats

    7 37 632 17.1 9
    23 Ben PowersOklahoma, Sr OG

    The Bengals are one of the most well-rounded clubs in football but could use more fortification along their offensive line. Powers is a tall, pass-blocking specialist who'd help to keep interior pressure off Andy Dalton.

    24 Devin WhiteLSU, Jr ILB

    Bobby Wagner is currently the best active player on the Seahawks defense. He needs a high-caliber running mate. With White, Seattle would get another highly athletic off-ball linebacker.

    25 Te'von ConeyNotre Dame, Sr ILB

    Traded from: CHI

    With White going one pick ahead of them, the Raiders go with Coney. He's not as dynamic of an athlete as the LSU star but has more keen play-recognition skills and is more reliable of a tackler.

    26 Quinnen WilliamsAlabama, Soph DT

    The Eagles have the best pass rush in football but have some older pieces up front. Williams has emerged as the most productive member of Alabama's defense line this season.

    27 Gerald Willis IIIMiami (Fla.), Sr DT

    Willis is a swim-move master who plays with plenty of power. Life would be good for him with the Chargers on the inside between Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram.

    28 Christian WilkinsClemson, Sr DT

    The Packers would love the versatility of Wilkins, who can play literally any role in any position along the defensive line. He has an NFL-ready body too.

    29 Beau BenzschawelWisconsin, Sr OG

    Traded from: NO

    The Packers would be smart to add some high-caliber youth to their offensive line, and Benzschawel is a gifted mover at guard.

    30 Taylor RappWashington, Jr FS

    Rapp is a supremely springy athlete and makes all types of plays all over the field. He can play anywhere from weak-side linebacker to free safety. Bill Belichick would be able to do many creative things defensively with Rapp on the roster.

    31 Jeffery SimmonsMiss. State, Jr DT

    Simmons is a pass-rushing defensive tackle ready to rush the passer in nickel packages on the inside. The Chiefs defense needs some help.

    32 Montez SweatMiss. State, Sr OLB

    Simmons' teammate is a high-motor edge-rusher who has showcased some good hand-usage during his illustrious career with the Bulldogs. If there's one thing the Rams defense needs more of, it's production from the edge-rusher spot.

  • # Team Player Pos
    1 Justin HerbertOregon, Jr QB

    No change at the top. And just like last week, the Giants are coming off a loss and much of the blame -- fairly or not -- rests with 37-year-old Eli Manning. Herbert isn't the best player in this draft, and probably won't be as highly rated as the best passers in last year's draft, but the Giants are left with few options. They need a quarterback and they needed him a year ago.

    2017 College Stats

    6 1613 63.1 17 5
    2 Nick BosaOhio St., Jr DE

    The Colts could really use a big-play wide receiver to complement TY Hilton, or even an offensive lineman to protect Andrew Luck as he continues to work his way back from missing the 2017 season with that shoulder injury, but you just can't pass on Bosa here, even if he'll miss most of his final college season with a core muscle injury.

    3 Greedy WilliamsLSU, Soph CB

    The Cardinals are a terrible football team and it's unclear that will change anytime soon. It sounds like just about everybody could be available with the trade deadline looming and if Patrick Peterson really is shipped out of town, Greedy Williams would be a logical replacement.

    4 Ed OliverHouston, Jr DT

    Oliver can dominate the line of scrimmage and while he's not an edge rusher he's a difference maker that has drawn comparisons to an Aaron Donald-type player. That may be unfair but there's no denying he'd make the Raiders' suspect defense a lot better. Of course, if Oakland continues to lose, and make its way up the draft board, it may have to decide whether taking a quarterback is a more immediate need.

    5 Deionte ThompsonAlabama, Jr FS

    This is probably too high for a safety but Thompson is a special talent that would immediately transform the backend of San Francisco's defense, a unit that came into Week 6 ranked 10th against the run but 23rd against the pass, according to Football Outsiders.

    6 Jonah WilliamsAlabama, Jr OT

    The Falcons have Jake Matthews at left tackle, and Williams hasn't played right tackle since his freshman season, but he's the most complete offensive lineman in the draft. Given that Matt Ryan has been sacked 17 times in six games, and that the O-line ranks 25th in pass blocking, Williams seems like the perfect fit.

    7 Quinnen WilliamsAlabama, Soph DT

    How deep is Alabama's bench? Williams played behind Da'Ron Payne last season and the redshirt sophomore has opened a lot of eyes with his play over the first half of the college season. In related news, the Broncos defense has allowed 593 rushing yards the last two weeks in losses to the Jets and Rams.

    8 Yodny CajusteWest Virginia, Sr OT

    The Bills have gotten the most out of their limited roster this season but there's no getting around the reality that the offense line is a liability; the unit ranks 24th in run blocking and dead last in pass protection. Cajuste is an athletic mauler who could be the starter from Day One.

    9 Brian BurnsFlorida St., Jr DE

    The Bucs fired their defensive coordinator this week after the unit allowed 34.6 points per game through five games this season. Tampa Bay's pass rush has "improved" from 32nd in 2017 to 27th with the additions of Vinny Curry and Jason Pierre-Paul but Burns could be a special talent, and one that will immediately earn playing time on a defense that needs help just about everywhere.

    10 Kelvin HarmonNC State, Jr WR

    The Lions' defense has been bad but the offense hasn't been much better. With Golden Tate in the final year of his contract, Detroit gets Matthew Stafford another big play wideout in Harmon, who is the first receiver off the board after it was announced Monday that Ole Miss' D.K. Metcalf would miss the rest of the season with a neck injury that will require surgery.

    2017 College Stats

    5 33 534 16.2 2
    11 JJ Arcega-WhitesideStanford, Sr WR

    The Browns would love to get a left tackle here but with Williams and Cajuste already off the board, Arega-Whiteside is reminiscent of Mike Williams and would give Baker Mayfield a big downfield target to complement Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway.

    2017 College Stats

    7 37 632 17.1 9
    12 Clelin FerrellClemson, Jr DE

    Jadeveon Clowney is in the final year of his rookie deal but even if he returns, you can never have enough pass rushers in today's NFL.

    13 Raekwon DavisAlabama, Jr DT

    The Cowboys' defense has improved over a season ago but they're still a replacement-level unit. Davis, who came into 2018 as Alabama's top D-line prospect, has been eclipsed by the emergence of Quinnen Williams, but he remains a disruptive presence in the trenches against both the run and pass.

    14 Drew LockMissouri, Sr QB

    Lock looks like an NFL quarterback but you never know whether he's going to come out throwing lasers all over the field, which he's capable of, or missing wide-open receivers while the offense stalls. But the Jaguars desperately need to upgrade Blake Bortles and this may be a risk worth taking.

    2017 College Stats

    6 1629 58.7 12 6
    15 Kris BoydTexas, Sr CB

    Same as last week. Jalen Mills has had a rough start to the season and Boyd has had an impressive senior season to date. He might be one of the most polished draft-eligible cornerbacks, at least through the midway point of the college calendar.

    16 Noah FantIowa, Jr TE

    The Jets have the 29th-ranked pass offense and Sam Darnold could use an athletic tight end to patrol the middle of the field.

    2017 College Stats

    6 23 298 13 6
    17 Jeffery SimmonsMiss. State, Jr DT

    Seattle's defensive line ranks 18th against the run and 23rd against the pass. Simmons is one of the most athletic defensive tackles in college football, though there may be some off-field issues that affect his draft stock.

    18 Dalton RisnerKansas St., Sr OT

    Bryan Bulaga will be entering his 10th season and Risner is solid in both run blocking and pass protection.

    19 Mack WilsonAlabama, Jr ILB

    The only surprise here is that the draft's best middle linebacker makes it all the way to the Steelers, who have been a completely different defense without Ryan Shazier.

    20 Dwayne HaskinsOhio St., Soph QB

    It's unclear if Haskins will even declare for the draft but if he's available, the Dolphins should think long and hard about playing him. On Sunday, Brock Osweiler (!) made Dolphins fans forget about Ryan Tannehill and it's fair to say that if Tannehill hasn't put it together in seven seasons it's probably not going to happen.

    21 Chris LindstromBoston College, Sr OG

    You can probably figure this out; Marcus Mariota was sacked an whopping 11 times on Sunday against the Ravens. Bolstering the offensive line is going to be a priority this offseason.

    22 Jachai PoliteFlorida, Jr DE

    After having one of the NFL's best defenses a year ago, this unit has struggled to start the season, especially in the passing game. Finding a tenacious edge rusher can pay immediately dividends and Polite has been damn near unblockable during the first six weeks of the college season.

    23 A.J. BrownOle Miss, Jr WR

    Traded from: CHI

    This team could look completely different by next September and adding a pass-catching weapon makes a lot of sense, especially in light of the report that the Raiders would move former first-rounder Amari Cooper for the right price.

    2017 College Stats

    7 50 650 13 4
    24 Kaden SmithStanford, Jr TE

    Tyler Eifert suffered a season-ending injury and while he's expected to be back for the 2019 season, Smith creates matchup problems for both linebackers and safeties tasked with covering him.

    2017 College Stats

    6 27 382 14.1 0
    25 Deebo SamuelSouth Carolina, Sr WR

    Can be the most dynamic player on the field and is also a capable return man. The Redskins need a downfield target and Samuel has the ability to stretch the field.

    2017 College Stats

    6 33 382 11.6 4
    26 Michael Jackson, Sr.Miami (Fla.), Sr CB

    Captain Munnerlyn will be 31 in the spring and at 5-9 he's undersized to matchup against bigger NFL receivers. Jackson is 6-1, physical, embraces press coverage and is good blitzing off the edge.

    27 Devin WhiteLSU, Jr ILB

    Denzel Perryman is in the final year of his rookie deal and while White hasn't been as consistent as Mack Wilson this season, he's checks all the boxes for what NFL teams are looking for in their middle linebackers in today's game.

    28 Rashan GaryMichigan, Jr DT

    Is Gary better on the edge or inside? That's one of the questions to be answered in the coming months but the know this: The Ravens would find a way to get the most out of his talents because, well, that's what they do.

    29 Zach AllenBoston College, Sr DE

    The Pats take the local kid to bookend Trey Flowers. Allen is a tenacious high-motor player who would immediately improve a defensive line that ranks near the bottom of the league against both the run and the pass.

    30 Jerry TilleryNotre Dame, Sr DT

    Traded from: NO

    The Packers have invested a lot of recent draft picks in shoring up the secondary and now, with their second first-round pick, they try to fix their run defense, which has been suspect through the first half of the season.

    31 Deandre BakerGeorgia, Sr CB

    Steve Nelson is targeted early and often by opposing quarterbacks and if the Chiefs can cobble together a replacement-level defense they're a legit Super Bowl contender.

    32 Montez SweatMiss. State, Sr OLB

    The Rams' defensive line ranks 25th in rushing the passer, according to Football Outsiders. Sweat has eight sacks through six games this season.
