Prisco's NFL Mock Draft 2019: Cardinals take Nick Bosa, Dolphins trade into top 10 to stop Kyler Murray's fall

Call me stubborn.

You probably already do. But I am sticking with the Arizona Cardinals taking Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft in my final mock draft.

That's right, I am not on the Kyler Murray hype train. I just don't see how Cardinals general manager Steve Keim can take Murray a year after trading up to take Josh Rosen. Yes, Rosen wasn't good last year, but who would have been with the slop around him? What would Murray have done in the same situation?

So the Cardinals need to give Rosen a chance to succeed. Murray is a risky pick, no matter what the Twitter cult thinks. He's 5-foot-10, barely, and he played just one year of college football. That matters.

So I think the Cardinals pass on Murray and take Bosa. It's the smart move.

Maybe it's just my stubborn ways, but I am sticking with it. If it doesn't happen, my mock is blown to pieces and you will light me up like your Christmas tree.

Oh, well.

They would pass on a quarterback, stick with Josh Rosen, and then take the best edge player in the class. He would team with Chandler Jones and Terrell Suggs to give them a nice trio at edge rusher.

I heard there was a push by some coaches to take Ed Oliver, but in the end smarter heads prevailed and they opt to go with a major need player. Allen will be a force in Gregg Williams' defense.

They need to get a playmaker in the middle of their defense, and White is that guy and more. This is high for an off-ball linebacker, but it makes sense.

They pass on a quarterback here and land a top offensive tackle. Williams played on the left side, but he can play right tackle or guard.

They pass on a tight end and receiver and land a tackle I heard their line coaches love. They would have considered Williams and Oliver here as well.

There is pre-draft talk that they might make a move to go get Jones. In this mock, they don't have to do so. Jones is a player NFL scouts love a lot more than the draft analysts do.

The pass rush has been an issue for a while and Julius Peppers has retired. So the Panthers go with Ferrell, who will give them a force on the outside.

They want to move Riley Reiff inside to guard, so they need to take a tackle. Ford could also play guard if needed, but I think he can be a dominant tackle.

Projected Team
Baltimore Ravens
PROSPECT RNK

They had issues inside at center last year, and Bradbury is the best of the center group. He isn't big, but he is smart and athletic.

Andre Dillard OL
Philadelphia - 6'5 / 306 LBS

He is a smooth pass protector who will upgrade a bad offensive line in Houston. Deshaun Watson needs help.

The Raiders have a major hole in their backfield, so it's time to fill it. I don't like taking backs in the first round, but this late after two picks on defense, it's OK. Jacobs has star ability.

Greg Little OL

The Chargers need to get better up front and Little is a player some thought would be a top-10 pick a year ago. The ability is there.

The Patriots will likely trade out of this spot – adding even more picks or going up to target a player – but if they stay here why not take a top-10 talent? If Simmons doesn't tear his ACL in January, he's a high first-round pick.
