The 2019 NFL Draft is today. With that, it is time to start looking forward to the 2019 NFL Draft. Here is the 2019 NFL Mock Draft April 25.
1. Arizona Cardinals- Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
The Cardinals may still be trying to get some teams to trade up with them and if so they have done a fantastic job. They haven’t even been calling other teams about a Josh Rosen trade yet, but could be waiting for the best offer. The consensus around the league though now is that they will take Kyler Murray. He is small in stature, but is a great athlete with solid accuracy.
2. San Francisco 49ers- Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio State
Bosa performed solidly when he played, but still hasn’t seen the field since early in the college football season. The 49ers have reportedly loved Quinnen Williams, so that could be the pick, but Bosa could be an asset rushing the passer across from Dee Ford.
3. New York Jets- Josh Allen, Edge, Kentucky
Allen is one of the best pass-rushers in the class, but also has the ability to drop back into coverage. If the Jets don’t get an offensive lineman to help protect Darnold, they should try to find a pass rusher to help their defense progress. With Jamal Adams and C.J. Mosely, Allen can help give the Jets a solid young defense.
4. Oakland Raiders- Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
Williams had an impressive combine and has had the biggest rise so far. He went from being virtually unknown to showing he can be one of the most disruptive players in the draft class. The Raiders need help on the edge, but Williams can be really disruptive on the interior and they can get another edge rusher or two later in the draft.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Devin White, LB, LSU
Kwon Alexander is now gone and the Bucs need a linebacker outside of Lavonte David. White is a player who can do everything on the defensive side of the field. His biggest assets are his speed and physicality.
6. New York Giants- Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report has refuted reports that the Giants don’t like Dwayne Haskins. He seems like a pretty good fit for their system with his good accuracy. The Giants have pushed off getting a true successor for Eli Manning for too long and need to take one with the sixth pick so that the quarterback and Saquon Barkley can grow together.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
The Jaguars need to get Leonard Fournette some running room, as when he is healthy and moving the chains, they are at their best. Taylor has great body control and can start at right tackle right away.
8. Detroit Lions- Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
Some have soured on Oliver, but he is still one of the most impressive players in college football. This class has so many good defensive linemen and Oliver may be the best in the class. Oliver will be useful for the Lions as a player that can play multiple positions due to his athleticism.
9. Buffalo Bills- Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
The Bills have to improve the offensive line and protect their franchise quarterback in Josh Allen. Williams didn’t play as well as expected this season, but will probably get drafted highly for his solid play over his career.
10. Denver Broncos- T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
With no guards worth selecting and Devin White off the board, the Broncos may want to address the tight end position to help out Joe Flacco. Hockenson is a tight end who doesn’t have any glaring weaknesses.
11. Cincinnati Bengals- Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
The Bengals have cut Vontaze Burfict. Preston Brown is still in the fold, but he was injury prone last season. Cincinnati could use a linebacker like Devin Bush, even if it is a little bit early for him to be selected. Bush is an undersized, yet fast and can cover.
12. Green Bay Packers- Rashan Gary, DE/DT, Michigan
Gary has athleticism, speed and power and could produce more at the NFL level in a scheme that can use his talents. Green Bay has already beefed up their defensive line with the acquisitions of Za’Darius and Preston Smith, but the Packers could use more.
13. Miami Dolphins- Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
With Adam Gase fired and Ryan Tannehill traded, the Dolphins need a quarterback for new head coach Brian Flores. Haskins threw for 50 touchdown passes and completed 70% of his passes, which are unprecedented marks. Lock has the arm to make all the throws required of him and could develop given time.
14. Atlanta Falcons- Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
The Falcons need to get a defensive tackle to play next to Grady Jarrett. Adding one could take some attention away from Takkarist McKinley and Vic Beasley so that they can get to the quarterback more. Wilkins can help improve the interior and also help with the pass rush.
15. Washington Redskins- Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
Jones had a solid college career and is a projected first-round pick. Teams will like his size and that he was coached by the great David Cutcliffe. With Alex Smith’s injury, Washington needs a new quarterback. Washington reportedly favors Daniel Jones to other quarterbacks in the draft class.
16. Carolina Panthers- Brian Burns, Edge, Florida State
Burns could fit in nicely as a 3-4 outside linebacker or a 4-3 defensive end, but may need to do better against the run for the 4-3. The Panthers had one of the worst pass rushes in the entire league and Julius Peppers retired. They signed Bruce Irvin, but that likely won’t be enough.
17. New York Giants- Clelin Ferrell, Edge, Clemson
The Giants have Markus Golden, but still need more pass rushers to make the defense more effective. Ferrell is a solid edge rusher who can help them right away in an area of need.
18. Minnesota Vikings- Cody Ford, OT/G, Oklahoma
Ford is very versatile, as he can play both guard and right tackle. Drafting Ford allows the Vikings to get the offensive line better, but it could also give them some options, as either Ford or Brian O’Neil can play right tackle or guard.
19. Tennessee Titans- D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
Metcalf is one of the big winners at the combine measuring 6-foot-3 and 228 pounds, while running a 4.33-second 40-yard dash. He doesn’t have great agility, but with his size and speed, could entice teams to draft him early. Marcus Mariota has to get more weapons to be truly successful.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers- Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
Baker has been Georgia’s number one corner for two seasons and is a threat to take it back to the house every time he gets the ball in his hands, much like he did against South Carolina. The Steelers have signed Steven Nelson and have Joe Haden, but still need a better pass defense.
21. Seattle Seahawks- Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
Seattle is far from the “Legion of Boom” defense and needs a boost to their secondary. The redshirt sophomore has eight interceptions in his young career and looks like he could even improve in the future if he works on his technique.
22. Baltimore Ravens- Montez Sweat, Edge, Mississippi State
Sweat showed a great ability to get to the quarterback in his college career and impressed at the combine with his wide receiver-level speed. He has been taken off of some draft boards, but the Ravens need a pass rusher desperately.
23. Houston Texans- Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
Andre Dillard is a great pass blocker who has good body control. Houston has refused to address the offensive line and need to change that to prevent Deshaun Watson from getting banged up.
24. Oakland Raiders- Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
The Raiders can address their defensive line early in the draft, but the secondary is still a mess. Murphy will likely go at the end of round one or early round two as it currently stands.
25. Philadelphia Eagles- Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame
The Eagles are very thin at corner, which really cost them last year, as the injuries piled up. They’ll need to address this in the draft. Love has great ball skills and could start from day one.
26. Indianapolis Colts- Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
The Colts addressed their need for a pass rusher by signing Justin Houston. They can get better on the interior of the defensive line by draft Lawrence. Lawrence provides a huge presence in the middle of the line to eat up blockers.
27. Oakland Raiders- Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
Signing Crowell is ok, but the Raiders need a lead back for the future. Jacobs is one of the top running backs in the draft class and has fresh legs.
28. Los Angeles Chargers- Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Philip Rivers is aging and they need to keep him upright. Little is a good athlete and a quality pass blocker. He’ll have to show more power in the run game.
29. Seattle Seahawks- Jachai Polite, Edge, Florida
The Seahawks just traded Frank Clark to the Chiefs. They now need to get a pass rusher with one of their two first-round picks. Polite has a quick first step, but didn’t do well at the combine.
30. Green Bay Packers- Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
Green Bay has suspect receivers outside of Davante Adams and should get Rodgers some more help. They can get good value in Brown here, as he is the fastest receiver in the draft.
31. Los Angeles Rams- Justin Layne, CB, Michigan State
The Rams don’t have too many needs and can load up on corners. Layne has been rising up draft boards recently and might go in round one.
32. New England Patriots- Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
The Patriots now need to replace Rob Gronkowski after his retirement. Fant is one of the most athletic tight ends in the class and can be a fit for the Patriots.
33. Arizona Cardinals- Chris Lindstrom, OG/C, Boston College
For whoever plays quarterback next season, the Cardinals have to improve the interior of the offensive line. Lindstrom is an experience run blocker and one of the best interior linemen in the class.
34. Indianapolis Colts- Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State
The Colts need a better safety to go alongside Malik Hooker and Abram can be the more physical safety in the box for Indy.
35. Oakland Raiders- Zach Allen, DE/DT, Boston College
Oakland has to get a pass rusher at some point and can do it at the top part of the second round. Allen is a better run stopper than pass rusher, but their options may be limited based on value.
36. San Francisco 49ers- Darnell Savage, S, Maryland
One of the biggest needs for the 49ers is safety. Savage is athletic and has range, but could go in the first round.
37. New York Giants- Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
With already having addressed the quarterback and edge rusher, the Giants can focus on the secondary. Ya-Sin may have played at the FBS level for just one year, but has the traits to be successful.
38. Jacksonville Jaguars- Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama
Nick Foles needs more weapons and the Jaguars don’t have a quality tight end on the roster. Smith is undersized, but would be a good target for Foles to throw to.
39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Garrett Bradbury, OG/C, NC State
For Bruce Arians to get the most out of Jameis Winston, he needs the offensive line to be better. Bradbury is an athletic interior lineman who can start on day one.
40. Buffalo Bills- Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State
Kyle Williams retired so the Bills need more on the interior of the defensive line. Simmons is going to fall in the draft because of a torn ACL, but would’ve been a top 15 pick if he didn’t get injured.
41. Denver Broncos- Erik McCoy, OG/C, Texas A&M
Denver has a few holes on the interior of the offensive line and can address it early in the second round. McCoy can slot in at center for the Broncos next season.
42. Cincinnati Bengals- Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State
How did Joe Mixon lead the AFC in rushing yards behind Cincinnati’s offensive line? They need to address the line and taking Risner gives them a solid player with versatility.
43. Detroit Lions- Germaine Pratt, LB, NC State
Detroit has to get better linebacker play if they’re going to have a good defense. Pratt still needs to learn the position better, but is athletic.
44. Green Bay Packers- Elgton Jenkins, OG/C, Mississippi State
Protecting Aaron Rodgers has to be a priority for the Packers. Jenkins can help the interior of their offensive line right away.
45. Atlanta Falcons- Austin Bryant, Edge, Clemson
Tak McKinley and Vic Beasley haven’t been productive enough over the last few seasons so the Falcons need to get another edge rusher early in the draft.
46. Washington Redskins- A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
Brown is a big, physical receiver who is one of the best in the class. He is a solid fit for the Redskins who don’t have many good receivers on the roster and should have a rookie quarterback.
47. Carolina Panthers- Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida
Carolina needs to get a safety to play beside Eric Reid. Gardner-Johnson has been good at times, but is inconsistent.
48. Miami Dolphins- Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
With a new quarterback comes a new weapon for the offense. Campbell has blazing speed and can produce more than Devante Parker and Albert Wilson, while playing well with Kenny Stills.
49. Cleveland Browns- Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia
The Browns traded away Julius Peppers in the Odell Beckham Jr. trade, so they need to replace him. Thornhill is the most athletic safety in the class and could be an impact player.
50. Minnesota Vikings- Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State
Jones is a quick-twitch athlete for a defensive lineman. He can help the Vikings who are a bit thin in the middle of the defensive line.
51. Tennessee Titans- Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame
Tillery is physical and could turn into a game-changer given some time. The Titans can use Tillery in a variety of different ways on their defensive front.
52. Pittsburgh Steelers- Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington
The Steelers have traded Marcus Gilbert to the Cardinals and could use a tackle in case they can’t find anyone to replace him.
53. Philadelphia Eagles- Michael Deiter, OG/C, Wisconsin
Philadelphia doesn’t have too many needs, but they should try to improve the interior of the offensive line.
54. Houston Texans- David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State
Lamar Miller won’t be around too much longer and the Texans could use someone to pair with him for the time being.
55. Houston Texans- Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State
There is a lot of buzz around Howard, despite him not playing against top-tier competition in college. If the Texans are smart, they’ll spend multiple picks on improving the offensive line this draft.
56. New England Patriots- Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
Tom Brady can’t play forever and the Patriots need a young quarterback to groom.
57. Philadelphia Eagles- Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama
Having already picked a corner and a guard, the Eagles can draft a linebacker to develop in Wilson.
58. Dallas Cowboys- Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama
The Cowboys have a big need at safety and Thompson could be the answer for them. He played the first half of the season like a top 10 pick, but faltered down the stretch for Alabama.
59. Indianapolis Colts- Jamel Dean, CB, Auburn
Dean is a fast and lanky corner, who has some knee injury issues. He could help out the Colts, who don’t have enough help at the corner position.
60. Los Angeles Chargers- Khalen Saunders, DT, Western Illinois
The Chargers should fix the interior of their defensive line and can do so by selecting Sanders.
61. Kansas City Chiefs- Taylor Rapp, S, Washington
Kansas City got a pass rusher in Frank Clark with their trade and can now fix the back end by taking Taylor Rapp.
62. New Orleans Saints- N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
Drew Brees needs a better secondary wide receiver than Tre’Quan Smith. Harry is a big receiver that will win his fair share of jump balls.
63. Kansas City Chiefs- Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State
Trading for Carlos Hyde helps the offense, but the Chiefs shouldn’t shy away from taking another running back in the draft for the future.
64. New England Patriots- Gerald Willis, DT, Miami
The Patriots should try to get a few defensive linemen in this draft, as a few left in free agency.
