Brandon Olsen’s 2019 NFL Mock Draft v3.0

Every Mock Draft Monday you can expect to see at least a two round mock draft from one, some, or all of the Whole Nine Sports crew. This week, the mock draft is brought to you by Brandon Olsen, taking you through the first 64 picks of the 2019 NFL Draft.

1.1 Arizona Cardinals

The pick: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

The Cardinals have had rumors swirling about their interest in Kyler Murray ever since hiring Kliff Kingsbury. They’re finally able to draft him here.

1.2 San Francisco 49ers

The pick: Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama

Taking Nick Bosa is often seen as the slam dunk here but Quinnen could possibly be the better scheme fit in San Francisco.

1.3 New York Jets

The pick: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State

The Jets get to go BPA while taking a player at a position of major need.

1.4 Oakland Raiders

The pick: Devin White, LB, LSU

Devin White is the best linebacker prospect in years and Oakland grabs him early.

1.5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The pick: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky

One of the most versatile defenders in the class, Josh Allen should have a field day playing in Todd Bowles’ defense.

1.6 New York Giants

The pick: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

There have been rumors that the Giants have studied Dwayne Haskins a ton and rumors they haven’t studied him at all. I don’t buy that they aren’t interested.

1.7 Jacksonville Jaguars

The pick: DK Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

The Jaguars got their QB in Nick Foles, now they get an athletic freak of a WR even if he doesn’t deserve to be drafted this high, I think it’s the move Jacksonville makes.

1.8 Detroit Lions

The pick: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State

Montez Sweat blew up the NFL Combine and he helped himself more than any EDGE defender, he winds up in Detroit here.

TRADE: MIA trades picks #13, #78, #116, and a 2020 2nd to move up from 13 to 9 with BUF

1.9 Miami Dolphins (BUF)

The pick: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

Miami moves up here to get their QB after making everyone believe they were tanking the season. They had to give up a lot to trade in-division, but it could be worth it.

1.10 Denver Broncos

The pick: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan

After missing out on Drew Lock, the Broncos take the BPA at a position of need for them.

1.11 Cincinnati Bengals 

The pick: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama

The Bengals were unable get either of the Devins so they take someone that could step in immediately and contribute on the offensive line.

1.12 Green Bay Packers

The pick: Rashan Gary, DL/EDGE, Michigan

Rashan Gary seems like the perfect fit in the Green Bay defense and he falls to them here. Mike Pettine can hopefully help Gary put all of his tools to good use.

1.13 Buffalo Bills (MIA)

The pick: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

Jawaan Taylor is arguably the best offensive lineman in the draft and Buffalo grabs him here to protect Josh Allen.

1.14 Atlanta Falcons

The pick: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston

Grady Jarrett got franchised but that’s a temporary fix, drafting Ed Oliver allows Atlanta to let Jarrett walk in 2020.

1.15 Washington 

The pick: AJ Brown, WR, Ole Miss

Daniel Jones isn’t a first round QB, Washington takes a receiver here that can help Case Keenum this year and whichever rookie they draft in 2020.

1.16 Carolina Panthers

The pick: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

Brian Burns showed at the Combine that he could put on weight and still be explosive so he winds up in Carolina here.

1.17 New York Giants (CLE)

The pick: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

Dave Gettleman hates DBs, but I’m going to (probably stupidly) put my trust in him and hope that he’s smart enough to take Greedy Williams at 17.

1.18 Minnesota Vikings

The pick: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma

The Vikings need some offensive line help and Cody Ford can provide that at multiple levels.

1.19 Tennessee Titans

The pick: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson

Clelin Ferrell is a good scheme fit with Mike Vrabel’s Titans and should see years of success there.

TRADE: KC trades picks #29, #61, and #167 to move up from 29 to 20 with PIT

1.20 Kansas City Chiefs (PIT)

The pick: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

The Chiefs need help at multiple levels on the defense, taking Deandre Baker helps them a ton in the secondary.

1.21 Seattle Seahawks

The pick: Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama

Earl Thomas is gone, now Seattle takes the best “center field” safety in the draft to replace him.

1.22 Baltimore Ravens

The pick: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State

Hakeem Butler is another freak of nature at WR but he’s not getting as much love as DK because he doesn’t look as good with his shirt off. Lamar Jackson isn’t super accurate, get him a huge target.

1.23 Houston Texans

The pick: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State

Deshaun Watson might just die if he has to play behind another awful offensive line.

1.24 Oakland Raiders (CHI)

The pick: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

Oakland continues building their defense through the draft by drafting my CB1 in the late-first.

1.25 Philadelphia Eagles

The pick: Taylor Rapp, S, Washington

Malcolm Jenkins can’t play forever so the Eagles find an immediate contributor who Jenkins can pass the torch to.

1.26 Indianapolis Colts

The pick: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson

Chris Ballard knows talent and is going to take the best player for his team, that’s Christian Wilkins here.

1.27 Oakland Raiders (DAL)

The pick: David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State

Finally drafting an offensive player, the Raiders take the best running back available and he’s a great scheme fit.

1.28 Los Angeles Chargers

The pick: Garrett Bradbury, IOL, NC State

The Chargers draft the best offensive lineman available and his ability to move will be great for him to pull.

1.29 Pittsburgh Steelers (KC)

The pick: Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama

Mack Wilson hasn’t received much first round love but he’s a great fit for Pittsburgh and I see him right as a fringe first-rounder.

1.30 Green Bay Packers (NO)

The pick: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

Green Bay drafting Noah Fant and pairing him with Aaron Rodgers instantly makes this a top-flight offense with Fant as a second or third option.

TRADE: JAX trades picks #38, #69, and #178 to move up from 38 to 31 with LAR

1.31 Jacksonville Jaguars (LAR)

The pick: TJ Hockenson, TE, Iowa

The Jaguars jump the Patriots here to prevent them from replacing the recently retired Rob Gronkowski and steal TJ Hockenson.

1.32 New England Patriots

The pick: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown

Although not replacing Gronk, the Pats draft a speed demon here to replace recently departed Cordarrelle Patterson and help open up this offense.
