2019 NFL Mock Draft: Raiders snag Oklahoma duo after Kyler Murray falls out of top three
The Giants finish with three first-round picks and a new franchise quarterback in Will Brinson's latest mock draft
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.

Round 1 - Pick 1
Round 1 - Pick 3
Round 1 - Pick 6
Round 1 - Pick 7
Round 1 - Pick 10
Mock Trade from Green Bay Packers
Round 1 - Pick 12
Clemson • 6'4" / 315 lbs
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.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Round 1 - Pick 22
Ohio State • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Another team that could trade down, but instead they decide to grab a wide receiver who is capable of playing all over the field and exploding for big gains.
From Chicago Bears
Round 1 - Pick 24
Mock Trade from New England Patriots
Round 1 - Pick 32
Daniel Jones QB
Duke • 6'4" / 215 lbs
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.
