NFL Mock Draft 2019: Giants and Redskins trade up for QBs, Packers get Brian Burns and Noah Fant

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
