I'm back...and the best time of the year is upon us, so let's take a look at where I think some of the top prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft will land.
1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
Yes, it is terrible asset management by the Arizona Cardinals to draft a QB two years in a row. But, the organization made a commitment when they hired Kliff Kingsbury, to surround him with guys that can fit his offence. Kyler Murray is that guy.
2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, DE/3-4OLB, Ohio State
This would mean the 49ers have drafted on their D-Line four of the last five years, with only one being successful (Deforest Buckner). Bosa is an extremely safe pick, and if the 49ers wanted to go to Quinnen Williams it would not be a bad pick at all.
3. New York Jets: Ed Oliver, DT/3-4DE, Houston
There are rumours flying around that the Jets want to trade down and it would be smart for them to do so. There have also been rumours about Ed Oliver being the apple of the Jets eye.
4. Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams, DT/3-4DE, Alabama
The Raiders get a steal with Quinnen Williams at the 4th pick, and with the three first round picks this could be a franchise changing draft for the Raiders, it starts with getting an absolute force on the inside of their D-Line.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin White, ILB, LSU
Probably the safest pick in the draft, Devin White is going to replace Kwon Alexander, who left via free agency. The Bucs probably didn't expect Josh Allen to be there, but all the rumours leading up to the draft link White to the Bucs.
6. New York Giants: Josh Allen, DE/3-4OLB, Kentucky
The Giants need to replace Eli Manning. Period. End of story. But, they can't do it here because they would be rushing to the stage to draft Josh Allen, and I can't fault them for that.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
The Jags gave Nick Foles a lot of money to replicate his play from when he took the Eagles to the Super Bowl. Well, what did Foles have on that Eagles team, Zach Ertz. The Jags get their security blanket for Foles here.
8. Detroit Lions: Brian Burns, DE/3-4OLB, Florida State
Size, speed, athleticism, Burns has it all. It might seem a bit high, but this is a trade down possibility. The Lions could take Burns inside the top 10 or later with a trade.
9. Buffalo Bills: Jonah Williams, OT/OG, Alabama
Three-year starter out of Alabama, started games as a freshman for Nick Saban. Is he a Tackle or Guard? The Bills will let him start on the outside and move him inside if necessary.
10. Denver Broncos: Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan
I hate the Broncos, but I love this pick. Bush will provide a sideline to sideline type tackler that can chase down ball carriers.
11. Cincinnati Bengals: Dwyane Haskins, QB, Ohio State
Andy Dalton "ain't it bruh". The Bengals can let Haskins sit on the bench for the first year behind Dalton, with 2019 being the year to let Haskins take the reigns.
12. Green Bay Packers: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
Who is the most important person for the Packers? Aaron Rodgers. So get a guy to protect him.
13. Miami Dolphins: Christian Wilkins, DT/3-4 DE, Clemson
Brian Flores comes from New England and defence will likely be there pick here. Wilkins would give the Dolphins a missing piece that they haven't had since they cut Ndamukong Suh.
14. Atlanta Falcons: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
Jake Matthews is solid on the left side for the Falcons, but they can deffinately replace Ty Sambrailo at the Right Tackle position.
15. Washington Redskins: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
With the future of Alex Smith in question, Washington needs to secure their future at the quarterback position. Lock falls to them in this mock draft, but in the real one they could trade up with the Lions or Bills to secure that QB.
16. Carolina Panthers: Montez Sweat, DE/3-4OLB, Mississippi State
A physical freak that Panther fans will hope will be their next Julius Peppers.
17. New York Giants (from Cleveland) : Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
Well here's the QB that the Giants apparently like, I'm not the biggest fan, but everything I read says the Giants really like Jones.
18. Minnesota Vikings: Jeffery Simmons, DT/3-4 DE, Mississippi State
The Vikings get one of the best players in the draft at 18. Simmons has his documented faults and a torn ACL that means he may not play this year, but he could also turn out to be one of the best players from this draft.
19. Tennessee Titans: Garrett Bradbury, C/OG, NC State
Is Marcus Marriota the Titans guy? I'm not sure, but helping protect him would help them find out if he is.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
Pittsburgh needs help at corner and they haven't had a notable one since Ike Taylor and he's been gone for years. Murphy didn't test well, but his IQ is what makes him special.
21. Seattle Seahawks: Rashan Gary, DT/3-4 DE, Michigan
Gary is a polarizing player, the number one overall recruit out of high school, all the tools in the tool box, but only 9.5 sacks in his three years in college. The Seahawks take a gamble, but if anyone will tap this potential, its them.
22. Baltimore Ravens: Clelin Ferrell, DE/3-4OLB, Clemson
Ozzie Newsome is gone, so that means no Alabama player to the Ravens right? Instead they go with the best pass rusher on the board.
23. Houston Texans: Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma
Say it with me everyone: "PROTECT DESHAUN WATSON"
24. Oakland Raiders (from Chicago): Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
A versatile running back that will help Derek Carr a lot, especially now that Marshawn Lynch has announced his retirement.
25. Philadelphia Eagles: Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
Philly needs help at corner, so they stay in their own backyard and take the best name in the draft.
26. Indianapolis Colts: Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State
The Colts will have a safety tandem for years to come with former first rounder Malik Hooker and now adding Abrams.
27. Oakland Raiders (from Dallas): Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
Oakland comes out of the draft with three pieces, two on offence. Now, Derek Carr will have all the weapons around him with a new TE and RB, throw in Antonio Brown and this could be a fun final season in Oakland... if they get that defence fixed.
28. Los Angeles Chargers: Dexter Lawrence, DT/NT, Clemson
An absolute unit on the inside, he will clog the lanes and a D-Line with Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram and Lawrence has the LA Chargers looking like they could make a run into February.
29. Seattle Seahawks (from Kansas City): Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
Maybe the best corner in the draft if he could tackle. Seattle will make sure he knows how to and if he does, a new Legion of Boom could form.
30. Green Bay Packers (from New Orleans): Marquise Brown,WR, Oklahoma
First we protect Aaron Rodgers, now we get him weapons. It just happens to be the best Wide receiver in the draft. Desean Jackson 2.0 is going to be sick if he lands with the Packers.
31. Los Angeles Rams: Erik McCoy, OC/OG, Texas A&M
The Rams lost guys on the inside of their line, lets give Jared Goff his potential Center for the next decade.
32. New England Patriots: Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama
Is Irv Smith Jr. the Rob Gronkowski replacement? No. Is he the Aaron Hernandez replacement. Yes.
