No team loves making gigantic splashes during the draft or free agency more than the Dan Synder-led Washington Redskins. And with a strange stable of quarterbacks currently on the roster, it's time for another seismic move to get a signal-caller. Haskins would be a sensible pick for Washington, especially if the coaching staff realizes he shouldn't be rushed onto the field as a rookie.

After weeks of T.J. Hockenson as the trendiest pick for the Packers, they go a different route with their two first-round picks and still land a top pass-catcher before the night is over. Thanks a lot for reading my mocks since the start of the college football season. This is my final 2019 NFL mock draft.

NFL Mock Draft - 04/24/2019
Round 1
1. Arizona Cardinals

(3-13)
Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma: Yes, I do think there's been some discussion this week about whether or not the Cardinals should pick Murray. But this is still the most likely scenario and, on paper, a great fit with new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
2. San Francisco 49ers

(4-12)
Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State: This is really the only slam dunk pairing in the top 10. Even though he'd be the fourth defensive lineman the 49ers have taken in the last five Round 1s, he rounds out the group up front opposite newly acquired Dee Ford.
3. Washington Redskins (Mock Trade with New York)

(7-9)
Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State: Mike Maccagnan worked for the Redskins from 1995 to 2000, so his time overlaps with Daniel Snyder's ownership of the club for a year. And Haskins has said he's 'pretty good friends' with Snyder's son. The Jets get their wish and trade back.
4. Oakland Raiders

(4-12)
Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama: After trading up to snag Haskins, Jay Gruden helps guarantee his brother Quinnen Williams to fortify the interior of Oakland's defensive line.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

(5-11)
Devin White, LB, LSU: The Bucs would like to trade down but can't find a suitor here. Instead, they go with the consensus top off-ball linebacker in White to patrol the middle of their defense for the next decade.
6. New York Giants

(5-11)
Ed Oliver, DL, Houston: Is Oliver the best fit in defensive coordinator James Bettcher's system? Not really. Does GM Dave Gettleman care? Not really. And, in all honesty, if your DC can't maximize Oliver's insane natural ability, get a new DC.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars

(5-11)
Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky: The Jaguars traded Dante Fowler mid-way through the 2018 season, and Yannick Ngakoue needs a running mate on the outside of the defense in Jacksonville.
8. Detroit Lions

(6-10)
T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa: The Lions are a trade-down candidate and Daniel Jones is still on the board in this scenario. Without finding a viable suitor, they take Hockenson to boost the intermediate passing game and rushing attack.
9. Buffalo Bills

(6-10)
Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama: Williams has ties to current Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who had the same position with the Crimson Tide in 2017. The Alabama blocker is the type of prepared, high character guy Sean McDermott likes.
10. Denver Broncos

(6-10)
Devin Bush, LB, Michigan: Vic Fangio makes his mark in his first head-coaching job with a super-fast, hyper-active linebacker in Bush to man the middle of Denver's defense.
11. Cincinnati Bengals

(6-10)
Andre Dillard, OL, Washington State: The Bengals could go quarterback here of course, but I get the sense they aren't enamored enough with any of the signal-callers after Murray and Haskins. Instead, they get stronger up front with Dillard.
12. Green Bay Packers

(6-9-1)
Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State: Burns aced the pre-draft process after an illustrious career at Florida State. I get the feeling GM Brian Gutekunst isn't done building Green Bay's pass rush after signing Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith in free agency.
13. New York Giants (Mock Trade with Miami)

(5-11)
Daniel Jones, QB, Duke: At the start of their rebuild, the Dolphins would love to accumulate future draft picks. As for the Giants, they'd land a top defensive prospect and Dave Gettleman's guy in Jones.
14. Atlanta Falcons

(7-9)
Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson: The Falcons must get more stout on the inside of their defensive line, and Wilkins would be the perfect complement to Grady Jarrett.
15. New York Jets (Mock Trade with Washington)

(4-12)
Jawaan Taylor, OL, Florida: The Jets' front office would likely be thrilled with how the first round turned out for them. They got extra picks and still landed one of the top three offensive tackles in this class to protect Sam Darnold.
16. Carolina Panthers

(7-9)
Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson: Ferrell has the length, power, and athleticism the Panthers covet on the outside, and edge rush is the biggest need on this team right now.
17. Miami Dolphins (Mock Trade with New York)

(7-9)
Jeffery Simmons, DL, Mississippi State: Even if 2019 is more of a redshirt season than anything else for the former Mississippi State who's nursing a torn knee-ligament, that'd be fine. It's all about 2020 and beyond in Miami.
18. Minnesota Vikings

(8-7-1)
Garrett Bradbury, OL, NC State: The Vikings are another team in need of a talent infusion up front, and Bradbury is an ultra-athletic center capable of carrying out difficult blocks on the move and across gaps.
19. Tennessee Titans

(9-7)
Dexter Lawrence, DL, Clemson: On paper, the Titans have more glaring needs, but Lawrence can devour running backs inside and take extra blockers away from Jurrell Casey on the inside.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers

(9-6-1)
Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia: Surprise! Baker goes ahead of Greedy Williams. Baker is more of a versatile player coverage scheme wise than Williams, who's predominately a press man corner.
21. Seattle Seahawks

(10-6)
D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss: While Metcalf's agility-drill times may scare GM John Schneider, Metcalf's size and explosiveness pair perfectly with the downfield passing prowess of Russell Wilson.
22. Baltimore Ravens

(10-6)
Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma: The Ravens wants to overwhelm teams with an old-school running attack in a new-school passing area. Ford would add more power to an already solid offensive line.
23. Houston Texans

(11-5)
Greedy Williams, CB, LSU: Williams could go earlier than this, yet his combine measurements were a little disappointing, and there's always a stunning draft-day slide for a perceived top prospect.
24. Oakland Raiders

(4-12)
Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma: The two Browns in Oakland? Good luck, opposing secondaries. And the Raiders signed large speedster Tyrell Williams in free agency. Goodness.
25. Philadelphia Eagles

(9-7)
Erik McCoy, OL, Texas A&M: The Eagles have long had one of the league's best offensive lines. Infusing it with some talented youth would be a shrewd decision from GM Howie Roseman.
26. Indianapolis Colts

(10-6)
Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State: As an in-the-box, hard-hitting strong safety, Abram is the ideal complement to extremely rangy center fielder Malik Hooker.
27. Oakland Raiders

(4-12)
Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State: Oakland's patience at the edge-rusher spot pays off, and they land one of the most physically imposing defensive ends to enter the NFL in a while. Sweat's heart condition precipitates his fall down draft boards.
28. Los Angeles Chargers

(12-4)
Drew Lock, QB, Missouri: Of course this is a pick with the future in mind in Los Angeles. The strong-armed Lock learning the nuances of the position from Philip Rivers would do wonders for his NFL career.
29. Seattle Seahawks

(10-6)
Chase Winovich, EDGE, Michigan: The Seahawks stay 'on brand' with their love of plus athletes. And Winovich proved at the combine he's an upper-level athlete. He has a decent repertoire of pass-rushing moves and a non-stop motor too. Cheap replacement for Clark.
30. Green Bay Packers

(6-9-1)
Noah Fant, TE, Iowa: Instead of going tight end at 12, the Packers wait and Fant falls into their lap at No. 30 overall. Awesome scenario for them. Fant is basically a big receiver who'll stretch the seam in Green Bay.
31. Los Angeles Rams

(13-3)
Chris Lindstrom, OL, Boston College: The Rams have to reconstruct the offensive line after losing Rodger Saffold. Lindstrom proved his worth as a tackle at Boston College before kicking inside as a senior and proving to be an athletic, mauling guard.
32. New England Patriots

(11-5)
Jerry Tillery, DL, Notre Dame: After losing Trey Flowers on the free-agent market, the Patriots could be interested in adding a position versatile defensive lineman with active hands. They'd get that here with Tillery.
