2019 NFL Mock Drafts

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

    This prospect-team pairing is too logical to change right now. Will Jon Gruden make the right decision in late April?

    2 N'Keal HarryArizona St., Jr WR

    The 49ers need to add a big-bodied receiver to pair with Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis, and Richie James and help Jimmy Garoppolo as he returns from injury in 2019. Harry is the premier perimeter receiver with outstanding size, body control, and ball skills.

    3 Jonah WilliamsAlabama, Jr OT

    While the Cardinals would've considered Harry had he been available in his scenario, they'd be more than happy with Williams, the most technically sound blocker in this class. Josh Rosen needs significantly better protection up front.

    4 Drew LockMissouri, Sr QB

    The David Cutcliffe connection could make Duke's Daniel Jones an option, but don't be surprised if GM Dave Gettleman goes with the quarterback with the strongest arm in the 2019 class. After all, he was instrumental in signing Cam Newton to a monster extension in June of 2015. Lock has some accuracy issues but will threaten defenses with the long ball often.

    11 2904 63.1 23 8
    5 Ed OliverHouston, Jr DT

    There could be some injury concerns with Oliver's knee, but if Kyle Williams retires, the Bills will have some depth issues at defensive tackle, especially with Harrison Phillips being more of a run-stopping specialist than a quick, gap-penetrator. If healthy, Oliver has Aaron Donald-type athleticism and would strengthen one of the NFL's best defenses.

    6 A.J. BrownOle Miss, Jr WR

    The Jets have myriad holes on their offense but with Williams off the board, they're content with a big, yards-after-the-catch specialist for Darnold, especially with Jermaine Kearse and Quincy Enunwa set to hit free agency.

    2017 College Stats

    11 81 1259 15.5 6
    7 Greedy WilliamsLSU, Soph CB

    Dream scenario here for the Buccaneers. They address their shoddy secondary with a tall and long cornerback with fluid athleticism and plus ball skills.

    8 Deandre BakerGeorgia, Sr CB

    With the top two receivers unavailable, the Browns turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball ... more specifically the corner spot opposite Denzel Ward. Baker is a mirroring master with vast experience in the SEC.

    9 Daniel JonesDuke, Jr QB

    Here's a changeup. How about Tom Coughlin as the man behind the selection of a Cutcliffe-coached quarterback? The Jaguars have to replace Blake Bortles. Have to.

    10 Clelin FerrellClemson, Jr DE

    Ziggy Ansah's probably not going to return to Detroit this offseason, right? If he bolts, the Lions need a big, physical edge-rusher to play three downs each series, halt the run, and flash some athleticism as a pass-rusher. That's a description of Ferrell.

    11 Quinnen WilliamsAlabama, Soph DT

    After Derek Wolfe, the Broncos could use more beef inside on their defensive line. Williams is a disruptive force on the interior and has experience two-gapping. He's the best when he's asked to use his astonishing pass-rushing moves and power to push the pocket.

    12 Christian WilkinsClemson, Sr DT

    Dan Quinn asks a lot of his defensive linemen, and Wilkins is the most versatile defensive linemen in the country. He'd be a welcomed addition up front and provide even more freedom for Deion Jones and the rest of Atlanta's linebacker group while occasionally providing some pass rush.

    13 Greg LittleOle Miss, Jr OT

    The Eagles have to find a Jason Peters replacement. Or, someone to play right tackle when Lane Johnson moves to the left side. Little isn't the most fundamentally sound blocker, but he has serious size, length, and athletic talents.

    14 Kelvin HarmonNC State, Jr WR

    Traded from: DAL

    Soooo ... the Amari Cooper-Martavis Bryant explosive tandem never materialized under Gruden, but the Raiders really need some help at receiver starting in 2019. Harmon is a perimeter, back-shoulder, high-point wideout with impressive athletic traits.

    2017 College Stats

    10 72 1065 14.8 6
    15 Deionte ThompsonAlabama, Jr FS

    Thompson is the best safety in what's shaping up to be a relatively weak class at the position and would give the Packers someone similar (but more dynamic of an athlete) to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

    16 Josh AllenKentucky, Sr OLB

    Without a quarterback worth taking here -- although Ryan Finley is pretty similar to Ryan Tannehill -- the Dolphins address another need: edge-rusher. Allen can play with his hand in the dirt but is best as a chess piece on the outside.

    17 Zach AllenBoston College, Sr DE

    Terrell Suggs is 36. Za'Darius Smith is in the final year of his rookie contract. The Ravens need to revitalize their pass-rush with some youth. Allen is a huge, powerful, and polished outside rusher who has the strength to play inside if need be.

    18 Amani OruwariyePenn St., Sr CB

    The Colts look good up front on offense, and their defensive front seven is one of the more underrated groups in football. The secondary -- outside of star safety Malik Hooker -- needs more talent. Oruwariye would undoubtedly bring that to Indianapolis, as he's a long, smoothly athletic corner.

    19 Kaden SmithStanford, Jr TE

    Can't get enough of this pairing. Smith is one of college football's most electric receiving threats with a game similar to Tyler Eifert's. He wins above his head and has the athleticism to threaten the seam.

    2017 College Stats

    9 47 635 13.5 2
    20 Jachai PoliteFlorida, Jr DE

    I have a feeling Polite's going to test really well at the combine, and the Seahawks have a propensity to pick plus athletes. Even if Frank Clark is re-signed, Seattle could use more juice off the edge. I write "juice" a lot when describing Polite, so this is perfect.

    21 Dalton RisnerKansas St., Sr OT

    The Vikings need to give Kirk Cousins more of a fortress when he drops back to pass so his talents can be maximized. Risner is the most NFL-ready right tackle in this class with a nice combination of light feet and a sturdy anchor.

    22 Anthony JohnsonBuffalo, Sr WR

    Corey Davis has started to show flashes of the dominant player he was in college but needs a running mate. Johnson, another MAC star, would be an ideal complement, and his game is comparable to Davis'.

    2017 College Stats

    9 41 794 19.4 9
    23 Brian BurnsFlorida St., Jr DE

    Burns needs to add weight and power to his game. Once he does that, he should be a consistent producer as a pass rusher thanks to long arms, outstanding lateral agility, and bend around the corner that can't be coached.

    24 Hakeem ButlerIowa St., Jr WR

    When all is said and done with the pre-draft process, I will not be shocked whatsoever if Butler is considered a first-round pick. At 6-foot-6 and well over 200 pounds with serious explosiveness and balance along with insane ball skills, he's a matchup nightmare.

    2017 College Stats

    10 42 915 21.8 8
    25 Chris LindstromBoston College, Sr OG

    A former tackle, Lindstrom has kicked inside to guard this season for the Eagles and fared well at his new position. The Texans need to essentially rebuild their entire offensive line in front of Deshaun Watson.

    26 Ben Burr-KirvenWashington, Sr ILB

    Traded from: CHI

    How about a super-fast, refined off-ball linebacker to be the quarterback of Oakland's defense? BBK can be that guy. He's a tackling machine and fits the new mold of linebackers in today's NFL. Gruden should be enamored with his speed and recognition skills.

    27 Julian LoveNotre Dame, Jr CB

    Not the biggest, fastest, or quickest corner, Love has mastery level instincts (essentially describing his awareness and route-deciphering ability). The Steelers need a play-making corner badly.

    28 Jeffery SimmonsMiss. State, Jr DT

    Yes, another week, another defensive tackle for the Chargers, but with Brandon Mebane in the final year of his deal, it makes sense. Simmons uses his hands well and is difficult to move on the inside.

    29 Jerry TilleryNotre Dame, Sr DT

    Tillery is ahead of most defensive line prospects when it comes to his hand use, and he's rarely out-leveraged by blockers despite being 6-7. The Patriots have to add more talent to their defensive line.

    30 Montez SweatMiss. State, Sr OLB

    Traded from: NO

    The Packers need more production from the outside of their defense. Sweat may not be the bendiest edge-rusher but he plays with a high motor and is strong at the point of attack.

    31 Bryce HallVirginia, Jr CB

    Hey, Chiefs: I think -- not totally positive -- that you do have to play some defense. Hall is a long, agitating corner who gets his hands on the football often.

    32 Dexter LawrenceClemson, Jr DT

    The Rams would have both ends of the defensive tackle size spectrum if they added Lawrence to play next to Aaron Donald. And that'd be a borderline unfair duo inside.

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

    Until we have more clarity on the quarterback situation -- who's coming out, who's staying -- Bosa will likely remain the first-overall pick. He'll immediately improve this porous Raiders defense and he'll go a long way in replacing pass rusher Khalil Mack.

    2 Jonah WilliamsAlabama, Jr OT

    Joe Staley is 34 years old and has one year left on his contract. Williams is the best offensive tackle in the class and while there are concerns that he may be better suited to move inside, he's a Day 1 starter.

    3 Greedy WilliamsLSU, Soph CB

    The Giants desperately need a quarterback but at this point there's just no one worth the second-overall pick, at least not yet. But this class is laden with talent on the defensive side of the ball and New York has one of the league's worst defenses. Janoris Jenkins is 30 years old and his play has slipped this season. B.W. Webb is set to be a free agent, and former first-round pick Eli Apple was traded to New Orleans several weeks ago. Landing the most athletic cornerback in the draft makes sense here.

    4 Ed OliverHouston, Jr DT

    One of the most athletic players in this draft class, Oliver lives in the backfield. He's a disruptive force against the run and pass, and he often requires double-teams, which frees up other teammates to make plays. Defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, the team's 2016 first-round pick, hasn't lived up to expectations and Oliver would immediately bolster the unit.

    5 Josh AllenKentucky, Sr OLB

    The Jets have bigger needs on offense, but there's not an offensive lineman or wide receiver worth taking this high. Allen has had a breakout senior season and has been a tenacious pass rusher who can also drop into coverage.

    6 Quinnen WilliamsAlabama, Soph DT

    Thirty-five-year-old Kyle Williams is in the final year of his deal and Star Lotulelei, who signed a five-year deal last offseason, hasn't been as productive as hoped. Quinnen Williams could end up being the best interior linemen in this draft class and is coming off a dominant performance against Mississippi State over the weekend.

    7 Rashan GaryMichigan, Jr DT

    The Lions defensive line ranks first in rushing the passer, according to Football Outsiders, but Ziggy Ansah is on the franchise tag and his future in Detroit remains a question after the season. Gary, who plays down the road in Ann Arbor, can play both interior and on the edge, though he's probably best suited inside.

    8 Deandre BakerGeorgia, Sr CB

    Tremaine Brock and Bradley Roby are in the final year of their contracts. Baker has had a fantastic season at Georgia; offenses regularly throw away from him and on the rare occasion the ball comes his way he has allowed a passer rating of 31.3, according to Pro Football Focus.

    9 Kelvin HarmonNC State, Jr WR

    The Jaguars pass on a quarterback but get Blake Bortles (or, perhaps, whomever they tap in free agency to replace Bortles) an imposing downfield weapon. Harmon is a threat at every level -- he has the ability to make contested catches in traffic and beat defensive backs deep.

    2017 College Stats

    10 72 1065 14.8 6
    10 Justin HerbertOregon, Jr QB

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is best in small doses. He's a great "break glass in case of emergency" option but at this point in the proceedings he's not a starter. And neither, it seems, is Jameis Winston. The 2015 first-rounder may have the rest of the season to prove otherwise but depending on who loses their job in January, the Bucs could be in the market for their next franchise quarterback.

    2017 College Stats

    11 2883 59.1 27 8
    11 Jeffery SimmonsMiss. State, Jr DT

    The Browns' defense is young and explosive, but the defensive line lacks depth. Larry Ogunjobi has been good this season -- he has 4.5 sacks through 10 games -- but Trevon Coley will be a free agent in the spring. Simmons is arguably the third-best defensive tackle in this draft after Oliver and Williams.

    12 JJ Arcega-WhitesideStanford, Sr WR

    Tight end Eric Ebron currently leads the team in receptions. This is great news for Ebron, as he rediscovers his game in Indy, but Andrew Luck could use another downfield threat to pair with T.Y. Hilton.

    2017 College Stats

    9 48 754 15.7 11
    13 Drew LockMissouri, Sr QB

    Traded from: DAL

    The Raiders might be tempted to take Deionte Thompson here -- and perhaps they should -- but with each loss it seems that, fairly or not, Derek Carr's days in Oakland may be numbered. Lock is a strong-armed quarterback who has played well in recent games. When he's on he's unbeatable. The problem has been consistency from one week to the next.

    2017 College Stats

    11 2904 63.1 23 8
    14 Deionte ThompsonAlabama, Jr FS

    The Seahawks' offensive line has been a refreshing surprise but with Earl Thomas' season -- and career in Seattle -- over, and with Thompson still on the board ... well, the marriage makes too much sense not to happen. He's the best safety in this draft and it's not close.

    15 Jachai PoliteFlorida, Jr DE

    Former first-rounder Vic Beasley has just one sack in nine games, Atlanta's pass rush ranks 26th. Polite has had an explosive season for the Gators and while he needs to get better against the run, few pass rushers are as good at getting after the quarterback.

    16 Yodny CajusteWest Virginia, Sr OT

    Same as last week. After dominating for much of last season, the Eagles' offensive line could use an upgrade. The unit ranks 16th in run blocking and 24th in pass protection. Jason Peters is 36 years old and his contract is set to expire after the 2019 season.

    17 N'Keal HarryArizona St., Jr WR

    Harry can make plays down the field and that's exactly what the Ravens' predictable, boring offense needs. Michael Crabtree, Willie Snead and John Brown have all been good additions, but none can take over games. Harry has that type of ability.

    2017 College Stats

    11 69 1033 15 9
    18 Daniel JonesDuke, Jr QB

    Ryan Tannehill may have two years left on his current deal but barring an unforeseen turnaround when he takes the field at some point this month, he's done in Miami. Adam Gase needs to find a franchise quarterback who can grow into the role, something Tannehill has been unable to do. Jones is an interesting prospect who looks the part, can make all the throws, is surprisingly mobile and plays for QB guru, David Cutcliffe.

    19 Clelin FerrellClemson, Jr DE

    Clay Matthews is set to hit free agency and Ferrell, who plays on the best defensive line in college football, would be a welcome addition to Green Bay's front seven.

    20 Noah FantIowa, Jr TE

    The most athletic tight end in the class, Fant would provide Marcus Mariota a reliable middle-of-the-field threat. Jonnu Smith has flashed at times but he has just 10 receptions this season. And Delanie Walker, who is on injured reserve, is 34 years old.

    2017 College Stats

    11 38 507 13.3 7
    21 Mack WilsonAlabama, Jr ILB

    Same as last week. The Bengals' historically terrible defense fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin on Monday but that won't magically fix all that ails this unit. An influx of talent is also needed. Wilson is the most complete linebacker in the class and he would see playing time immediately.

    22 Chris LindstromBoston College, Sr OG

    The Vikings are only going as far as Kirk Cousins takes them, which requires him to be upright. Addressing the offensive line is paramount.

    23 Dalton RisnerKansas St., Sr OT

    Just like the Vikings, the Texans have issues along the O-line. Deshaun Watson has taken a beating for much of the first half of the season. Protecting him has to be a priority.

    24 Will GrierWest Virginia, Sr QB

    We'll admit it: We thought Alex Smith could have an MVP-type season in Washington. It's been pretty much the opposite of that and it's clear he's a short-term option. Grier, who has played well of late, could spend a year behind Smith and take over in 2020.

    2017 College Stats

    10 3325 67.2 33 8
    25 Byron MurphyWashington, Soph CB

    Traded from: CHI

    The Raiders need help everywhere. After grabbing Bosa and Lock, Gruden looks to bolster the secondary. Murphy is an athletic playmaker, exactly what Oakland's secondary needs as former first-rounder Gareon Conley and former Panthers third-round pick Daryl Worley have struggled this season.

    26 David EdwardsWisconsin, Jr OT

    The Panthers could use an infusion of youth (and some depth) along the offensive line; Chris Clark and Amini Silatolu are on the final year of their contracts, and Edwards is having a standout campaign for the Badgers.

    27 Dexter LawrenceClemson, Jr DT

    Danny Shelton and Malcolm Brown are in the final year of their deals, and so too is Trey Flowers but we can't imagine the Pats let one of the league's best defensive linemen get away. Lawrence is a 340-pound wrecking ball who is surprisingly quick for his size.

    28 Raekwon DavisAlabama, Jr DT

    Quinnen Williams has gotten most of the attention this season but Davis is an anchor on the Crimson Tide's defensive line. Now imagine him flanked by Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram.

    29 Devin WhiteLSU, Jr ILB

    Mack Wilson might be the more polished linebacker but White is arguably more explosive. Both have sideline-to-sideline speed and the athleticism to handle the demands of the position in today's NFL but White may be more of a thumper.

    30 A.J. BrownOle Miss, Jr WR

    Traded from: NO

    Same as last week. With the emergence of young pass catches like Davante Adams, Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb could be phased out. Brown would give Aaron Rodgers another dynamic downfield weapon.

    2017 College Stats

    11 81 1259 15.5 6
    31 Montez SweatMiss. State, Sr OLB

    Yes, the Rams just traded for Dante Fowler Jr., but Sweat has a chance to be a special player -- and he'll come cheap.

    32 Amani OruwariyePenn St., Sr CB

    Oruwariye is a rangy, physical corner with playmaking ability. Kendall Fuller has been solid this season -- but not nearly as productive as he was with the Redskins in 2017. Steven Nelson and Orlando Scandrick have also had their moments but Oruwariye would bring youth and athleticism to the group.
