2019 NFL Mock Draft: Four quarterbacks go in the top 10, but none go to the Giants

The 2019 NFL Draft is just hours away. All of these months and months of preparation and rumors have finally brought us here, so it feels appropriate to get in one last mock draft before the festivities kick off later Thursday night.

As usual, it feels like the quarterbacks are just going to go so much higher than we were initially led to believe. Rumors have been running rampant about several teams moving up for their preferred passer, and in this mock, two different teams jump into the top five to do just that. That has the cascading effect of pushing several quality defensive prospects down the board, which benefits the teams in the mid-to-late part of the first round. Without further ado, let's get things rolling ...
