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 Dylan Sanders, taking you through the first 64 picks of the 2019 NFL Draft.
1.1 Arizona Cardinals
The pick: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State
The explosive EDGE rusher is pretty much the obvious 1st overall pick.
1.2 San Francisco 49ers
The pick: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky
The 49ers finally find an EDGE rusher to fit their scheme.
NYJ trades down from #3 in exchange for JAX #7, #38, #98 & a 2020 2nd rounder.
1.3 Jacksonville Jaguars (NYJ)
The pick: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
The Jaguars see the Redskins trade up to presumably get a Quarterback so they pull the trigger to make sure they get the guy they wanted.
OAK trades down from #4 in exchange for WAS #15, #46, a 2020 1st rounder, & a 2020 3rd rounder.
1.4 Washington (OAK)
The pick: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
Washington, in the most Washington move ever planned on taking Kyler Murray anyway. A huge reach, but they need an injection of excitement into their mundane franchise.
1.5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The pick: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama
The Bucs backfield really needs protection, and they get the best person in the draft to provide that.
1.6 New York Giants
The pick: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
Stubbornly keeping Eli Manning in the leading role in 2019, likely to pick up some top talent in next years draft, they need to protect him if he doesn’t want to explode into a million pieces next season.
1.7 New York Jets (JAX)
The pick: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson
This draft has worked out perfectly for the Jets so far. They get some draft capital back after the Darnold trade, and get the pass rusher they desperately need. They would’ve taken him at 3 if the trade didn’t get presented to them.
1.8 Detroit Lions
The pick: Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama
Holy hell, how did the Lions get lucky enough to nab a top 4 talent at 8. Not necessarily their biggest need, but you can’t pass up a player of his talent.
1.9 Buffalo Bills
The pick: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma
The Bills need to give Josh Allen something to work with if they want him to both improve and stay healthy. Cody Ford is extremely talented and versatile on the O-line.
1.10 Denver Broncos
The pick: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
With Haskins off the board, there is no QB worth drafting this high. So, they nab Greedy to start off a new generation of great Broncos cornerbacks.
1.11 Cincinnati Bengals
The pick: Devin White, LB, LSU
One of the most naturally talented players I have seen in a long time, combined with an insane work ethic makes Devin White impossible to pass up for a LB needy team.
1.12 Green Bay Packers
The pick: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State
Sweat was incredibly productive in college and will continue to be for a long time. No complaints from Green Bay seeing him fall as he will fill a need of theirs.
1.13 Miami Dolphins
The pick: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston
After a disappointing last season at Houston, the Dolphins won’t see it as indicative of his future. Can’t pass up on this amazing talent that fell into their lap at 13.
1.14 Atlanta Falcons
The pick: Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State
Falcons need improvements at guard and could use potential help at all other places on the line. Risner offers potential help at all spots except Center.
1.15 Oakland Raiders (WAS)
The pick: DK Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
This athletic freak has had some crazy hype building around him, and for good reason. After shipping out Amari Cooper, Oakland needs a true #1 receiver and Metcalf can provide that.
1.16 Carolina Panthers
The pick: TJ Hockenson, TE, Iowa
One of two great TE talents out of Iowa, this well-rounded star will fill in for the eventual end of Greg Olsen’s career. The NFC South can’t elite TE talent out of Carolina. Not a huge 2019 need but long-term can’t pass up on his talent.
1.17 Cleveland Browns
The pick: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Baker Mayfield lets out a huge sigh of relief as this talented and versatile OT can play both left and right tackle depending on need.
1.18 Minnesota Vikings
The pick: Andre Dillard, OL, Washington State
The Vikings biggest need is offensive line. Luckily for them, Dillard is very athletic and can play both Guard and Tackle.
1.19 Tennessee Titans
The pick: Rashan Gary, DL/EDGE, Michigan
Gary would definitely be a much higher pick in any other year that wasn’t stacked with EDGE players. Some would also tell you he is the 2nd best edge rusher in the draft. I don’t buy into that as much.
1.20 Pittsburgh Steelers
The pick: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
Welp, this hasn’t been a season out of Dreamland for Pittsburgh. They need to take it one step at a time though. One of the longest lurking problems for them has been secondary trouble. Murphy is a great corner who can stay on the field in any package.
1.21 Seattle Seahawks
The pick: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson
Kind of a best D-Lineman available situation as the times of the Legion of Boom are sadly behind us.
1.22 Baltimore Ravens
The pick: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
Baltimore gets their #1 receiver with Harry. He is one of the best contested catchers I have ever seen. Getting him at #22 is a steal.
1.23 Houston Texans
The pick: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
Texans secondary needs another young stud. Baker will be great for them.
1.24 Oakland Raiders (CHI)
The pick: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State
Burns is a very explosive and technically skilled rusher who with a couple pounds added to him could be a dangerous presence in this league for a while.
1.25 Philadelphia Eagles
The pick: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
Picking a RB in the first is never a popular move, but they can’t let the best player in their biggest position of need fall anymore as it will be their last chance to get him
1.26 Indianapolis Colts
The pick: AJ Brown, WR, Ole Miss
Andrew Luck back to his former glory, but he needs someone not named TY Hilton to toss the pigskin to on the outside.
1.27 Oakland Raiders (DAL)
The pick: Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama
Now with even more draft capital, the Raiders add to their less needed position in the secondary and nab far and away the best safety in this class.
1.28 Los Angeles Chargers
The pick: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
The Chargers need a linebacker and Devin Bush is good at doing that.
1.29 Kansas City Chiefs
The pick: Nasir Adderley, DB, Delaware
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the Chiefs don’t have a great defense. They grab a great piece who can fill in at S,CB, and even LB.
1.30 Green Bay Packers (NO)
The pick: Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
Aaron Rodgers finally has another piece to work with. Great speed plus his great arm always makes an awesome NFL duo.
1.31 Los Angeles Rams
The pick: Dexter Lawrence, DL, Clemson
A great player falls to the Rams to pair with Aaron Donald for a long time.
1.32 New England Patriots
The pick: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
The other great Iowa TE falls to New England to become Gronk’s inevitable replacement.
