NFL Mock Draft 2019: Cardinals pick Kyler Murray, trade Josh Rosen in live CBS Sports HQ mock draft show
Check out all the picks made by our roster of NFL experts during the two-hour mock draft special
The CBS Sports HQ live draft show featured two hours of picks, trades, analysis and even some surprises. One pick that didn't surprise was at No. 1, where the Arizona Cardinals took Kyler Murray (despite Pete Prisco disagreeing with the selection). Among the 32 first-rounders, four quarterbacks in total went off the board, but it was the pass rushers and defensive linemen who led the way; both groups had six players taken. Next up, offensive line and wide receivers (four each), tight ends, linebackers and cornerbacks (two each), and safety (one).
There were also several trades: the Lions traded up from No. 8 to No. 3 to grab edge rusher Josh Allen and the Jets moved back to grab right tackle Jawaan Taylor. And the Raiders, flushed with four of the first 35 selections, moved up from No. 24 to No. 11 to get a much-needed pass rusher. In exchange, they sent the Bengals picks No. 27 and 35. Cincinnati, by the way, wasn't done making deals, trading for a new franchise quarterback: Josh Rosen.
You can check out the results of the entire live mock draft below.

OK, to the picks.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Nick Bosa DE
Ohio State • 6'4" / 266 lbs
Jamey Eisenberg: He's the best player in this draft. He's the guy that can be a difference maker on the defensive line ... This player in Bosa makes us that much better.
Mock Trade from New York Jets
Round 1 - Pick 3
Josh Allen LB
Kentucky • 6'5" / 262 lbs
Will Brinson: I decided to move up and pull the trigger ... I think a team like the Jets would be very willing to move down for ... not a ransom. And that's sort of what Detroit was thinking here when they fell in love with Josh Allen putting him on the edge.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Round 1 - Pick 6
Round 1 - Pick 7
Ed Oliver DT
Houston • 6'1" / 287 lbs
Pete Prisco: You get one of the dominant defensive players in this draft. The guy can get up the field as quick as anybody -- I know he's a little light -- but there are comparisons to Aaron Donald.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Montez Sweat DE
Mississippi State • 6'6" / 260 lbs
Jamey Eisenberg: Landing Montez Sweat, while not necessarily a huge need ... It's more of a luxury pick of taking the best player available at this spot, because he's a star.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Drew Lock QB
Missouri • 6'4" / 228 lbs
Danny Kanell: I think this looks like another whiff for John Elway ... Paxton Lynch was a complete bust ... I just feel like this is the perfect example of a player who scouts and GMs have fallen in love with when you just see him in person and he's slinging the ball around.
Mock Trade from Cincinnati Bengals
Round 1 - Pick 11
Brian Burns DE
Florida State • 6'5" / 227 lbs
Ryan Wilson: He's a sideline to sideline guy despite that size and that weight, and I think he immediately helps the rush game that was invisible last year once they got rid of Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Devin Bush LB
Michigan • 5'11" / 234 lbs
Pete Prisco: Now I get a sideline to sideline thumper, and a guy who can really play linebacker ... If I can get Devin Bush and add him to that defense, Mike Pettine has a lot of toys to play with when you consider the young corners outside.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Clemson • 6'4" / 315 lbs
Bryant McFadden: In your division you're playing against Cam Newton twice a year, you're playing against Drew Brees twice a year ... And you'd better find ways to put pressure on those elite quarterbacks ... Now you got a guy that can be a three-down lineman.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Daniel Jones QB
Duke • 6'4" / 215 lbs
Will Brinson: These quarterback picks, the Redskins and the Broncos feel like 2011 all over again where teams in need reach instead of grabbing the good defensive talent on the board.
Round 1 - Pick 16
Clemson • 6'4" / 267 lbs
Will Brinson: This is a team that prided itself for so long on a defensive line to get after the passer ... They've done some nice things in terms of bringing some under-the-radar veterans ... They need a pure pass rusher.
From Cleveland Browns
Round 1 - Pick 17
Round 1 - Pick 18
Round 1 - Pick 19
Round 1 - Pick 20
Mississippi State • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Bryant McFadden: When you talk about the Steelers defense when they were doing good things, it was attitude. That's the thing that I love about Jonathan Abram: He has the attitude, he has the 'it' factor, he believes in himself.
Round 1 - Pick 21
D.K. Metcalf WR
Ole Miss • 6'3" / 229 lbs
Jamey Eisenberg: You have to give Russell Wilson weapons if you're going to pay him what you just paid him. Tyler Lockett had a great season, he was the speed guy, that's why we're passing on Marquise Brown, they have that speed already on the field.
Round 1 - Pick 22
From Chicago Bears
Round 1 - Pick 24
Justin Layne CB
Michigan State • 6'2" / 192 lbs
Ryan Wilson: He's a press corner. He can play zone, he can do everything you want him to do. He still has some things to work on, because this is a relatively new position for him.
Round 1 - Pick 25
Mississippi State • 6'4" / 301 lbs
Will Brinson: Coming off an ACL tear, understanding that this is not a clean draft pick. This is a 'let's get a guy on a discount' because of when he suffered an injury. This is an explosive playmaker who can get in the backfield, who can be really dangerous in terms of rushing from the interior.
Round 1 - Pick 26
Clemson • 6'4" / 342 lbs
Pete Prisco: When you look at Dexter Lawrence, I've had scouts and personnel compare him to Kris Jenkins ... He has that type of ability to get inside, pressure the quarterback, and he's a massive man.
Mock Trade from Oakland Raiders
Round 1 - Pick 27
Cody Ford OL
Oklahoma • 6'3" / 329 lbs
Ryan Wilson: You have Josh Rosen, who also had no one blocking for him Arizona, and now you add a right tackle in Cody Ford who was absolutely dominant -- played in one of the best offensive lines in football along with Kyler Murray and Hollywood Brown.
Round 1 - Pick 28
Notre Dame • 6'6" / 295 lbs
Jamey Eisenberg: This is a defensive line that still needs some help ... I like what he brings to the table and I like helping out this Chargers defense that should complement what should be one of the more explosive offenses in the NFL.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Byron Murphy DB
Washington • 5'11" / 190 lbs
Bryant McFadden: The one knock on their team was what? Defense. Especially the pass defense ... When I look at Byron Murphy ... He's very very instinctive, he has that quick-twitch muscle that you love to see from your cornerbacks, I think this is a guy that can be a big-time player.
From New Orleans Saints
Round 1 - Pick 30
Ohio State • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Pete Prisco: Parris Campbell can fly. I thought he was misused at Ohio State, he can run, he should be used on the outside a little bit more. I think he can inside and play in the slot as well.
Round 1 - Pick 31
Louisiana Tech • 6'5" / 275 lbs
Danny Kanell: The biggest knock against him is the competition he played against, but how often do we see players get overlooked because they weren't playing in the SEC? I love this kid, I think he's gonna come in a perfect fit in a talent-rich defense where he's gonna get a lot of good matchups.
Round 1 - Pick 32
N'Keal Harry WR
Arizona State • 6'4" / 213 lbs
Danny Kanell: Tom Brady needs weapons, something they've overlooked for some time in New England because I think they take him for granted sometimes, so I do like it from that standpoint.
