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.
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.
