2019 NFL Mock Draft: Raiders snag Oklahoma duo after Kyler Murray falls out of top three

Alright, here we go. It's the last NFL mock draft of the 2019 season for me. The actual first round of the draft is going down later tonight, and I couldn't possibly be less confident with this rendition. I think there are a few facets of it that will actually play out in fairly accurate fashion, including the quarterbacks in this group dropping a lot further than people think.

I also believe we'll see a bunch of trade backs in the later part of the draft. The teams who have the late picks in the first round (Seattle, Baltimore, New England, etc.) love to move back, and there will be players falling further than people expect once we get through the first half of the round. This will be doubly true with the quarterbacks.

I'm also rolling with the Josh Rosen train in Arizona. I don't think the Cardinals see the value in Kyler Murray with the first overall pick, which means they're going to go in a different direction at No. 1. I wouldn't be surprised by a trade down at all, but I don't think there's a partner there. 

Actually, finding anyone to trade up early in this draft is almost impossible. I wanted to move the Jets and Lions down but there's not a viable jump out there. I think we see tons of moves, but I don't think those moves come early. Most of the teams out there are going to be forced into playing the hand they're dealt and trying to best suss out the draft board as it heads their way. 

No, I didn't forget to mock anyone that you think is a first-round pick either (ahem, D.K. Metcalf). It's just tough in this draft -- there are 25-30 guys who could go as early as No. 10, or not end up actually going in the first round of the draft. Don't be surprised by anything that happens in this draft. Thursday is going to be wild.

I'm just not buying that the Cardinals are going to take way less value on a Josh Rosen trade when he can run the Air Raid. Give me the defensive stud.

Easy choice here for San Francisco. I kind of want Bosa to go No. 1 just to see all the options for the 49ers here instead.

The Jets would love to trade down and while I think Murray falling helps them, I don't see anyone actually willing to do it so they take the best player available.

The Lions are officially the most difficult team to mock for this year. Edge rush could be a big spot here but I'm going to give them a hog molly instead.

Feels like an easy choice if Taylor is still on the board as the Bills badly need help on the offensive line.

If he makes it this far, Bush should be a layup for Denver. Ignore the QB noise -- Vic Fangio defenses key on the LB position, and Bush would help in a big way.

The Bengals could take a quarterback, but they need more infrastructure in place first and have to improve the line.

Green Bay's shown a willingness to move down; the Falcons have been willing to move up. Atlanta badly wants 1-2 of the top defensive lineman so they make a move here knowing Miami is lurking.

The Dolphins want to recreate their culture and find 10-year players: Clemson or Bama guys would fit but Bradbury gives them an anchor in the middle of the line.

This doesn't feel like a combo of teams that would work together, but the Patriots love to trade back and Gettleman can win the day if he comes out of the first round with two defensive linemen AND a quarterback of the future.
