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 Justin Rochat, taking you through the first 64 picks of the 2019 NFL Draft.
1.1 Arizona Cardinals
The pick: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
All the talk since the combine has been how infatuated HC Kliff Kingsbury is with Kyler Murray. I’m not a big fan of his but this seems like a forgone conclusion.
1.2 San Francisco 49ers
The pick: Devin White, LB, LSU
This was a tricky situation to figure out. What will the Niners do? The obvious answer would be to trade back with a QB needy team, but The Giants reportedly aren’t interested in Haskins and they probably can stick at 6 and find a QB there or even at #17. They just traded for Dee Ford and have used their first picks recently all on the DL. Devin White could easily become the best overall player out of this draft.
1.3 New York Jets
The pick: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State
The Jets have been looking for a pass rusher for over 10 years and finally find one in Bosa. Jets fans should be happy with this pick, but still need to fill a bunch of holes with no picks in the second round…..but they do have two picks in the third round.
1.4 Oakland Raiders
The pick: Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama
Aaron Donald has put the NFL on notice with how dominant he is at getting to the quarterback. He has made the interior pass rusher a premium position. Quinnen Williams has drawn some comparisons to Donald due to his phenomenal combine where he showed off his athleticism. The Raiders will run up their card to the podium with this pick.
1.5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The pick: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky
Josh Allen is a top pass rusher in this draft and will help out the Bucs defense tremendously. They could’ve gone in a different direction (offense line) but they could address that in the later rounds, they couldn’t pass Allen up here.
1.6 New York Giants
The pick: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama
The Giants pass up a quarterback here to grab one of the best overall offensive lineman in this draft. Jonah could play anywhere on the line for the Giants. I LOVE this pick for them.
1.7 Jacksonville Jaguars
The pick: DK Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
Metcalf had an eye-opening combine, showing off his speed and physique, but also lacks in route running ability and needs to improve there. With Jags giving Foles a big money contract, they need to surround him with some weapons.
1.8 Detroit Lions
The pick: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma
Cody Ford fills a need at guard for the Detroit Lions and is a damn good football player. Matthew Stafford is an underappreciated QB that need some protection.
1.9 Buffalo Bills
The pick: Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan
Gary is an athletic freak that could be dominant with the right coaching and scheme. With all the negative talk that the Bills get they aren’t that far off and Gary could be a big part of their turnaround.
1.10 Denver Broncos
The pick: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
Elway gets his guy and didn’t have to trade up to get him. Lock has a big arm and could flourish with the right coaching.
1.11 Cincinnati Bengals
The pick: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
With Devin White already off the board Cincy fills their linebacker void with the next best ILB in Devin Bush who brings his athleticism with him to Ohio.
1.12 Green Bay Packers
The pick: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson
Green Bay made multiple signings to fill their edge rusher spots, so they add a big and versatile player to pair with Kenny Clark and Mike Daniels in the middle.
1.13 Miami Dolphins
The pick: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
Miami gets my #1 rated QB in this scenario. The Phins signed Fitzpatrick to a two year deal so there’s no rush for Haskins to play right away
1.14 Atlanta Falcons
The pick: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
The Falcons recently released their starting tight tackle and find my top tackle still on the board. Jawaan is a big, nasty lineman that could play either tackle position.
The pick: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
The Skins traded for their starting QB, Case Keenum, so now they need to find someone to block for him. Dilliard is the top Tackle left on my board so this wasn’t a difficult decision.
1.16 Carolina Panthers
The pick: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson
I have a feeling Carolina would be happy and shocked that Ferrell is still available this far along in the draft. Some say he’s a top 10 talent and I would agree, but in this mock he slid to 16 where he replaces the future hall of fame edge rusher Julius Peppers.
1.17 New York Giants (CLE)
The pick: Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State
The Giants double down on offensive lineman here and pickup another versatile player. Risner can play anywhere along the line and will do it at a high level. The Giants building their line before getting their QB…..and I’m sure Barkley wouldn’t mind either.
1.18 Minnesota Vikings
The pick: TJ Hockenson, TE, Iowa
Offensive Line is a big need, I know, but i couldn’t help myself with this pick. Hockenson is a great blocker so he will help in that area a ton, but he is also a solid pass catcher.
1.19 Tennessee Titans
The pick: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State
Sweat fills in for Brian Orakpo in a defense that has a great deal of potential. He brings speed and competitive nature to Tennessee.
1.20 Pittsburgh Steelers
The pick: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, WR, Oklahoma
With the AB trade Steelers need to pair Ju-Ju with someone that could take the double team away from him and Brown will certainly get defenses attention.
1.21 Seattle Seahawks
The pick: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston
Oliver falls down the board with some questions about is character off the field. Nice value pick for the Seahawks.
1.22 Baltimore Ravens
The pick: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
Imagine the running game with this dude paired with Lamar? Deadly.
1.23 Houston Texans
The pick: Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia
Cajuste fills a nice spot for Houston at the tackle position to keep Watson clean.
1.24 Oakland Raiders (CHI)
The pick: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
The first CB finally comes off the board and it’s a good one. Greedy brings his ball hawk mentality to Oakland.
1.25 Philadelphia Eagles
The pick: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
Murphy is a phenomenal football player that will improve the Eagles secondary greatly and will be paired with returning Corner Ronald Darby.
1.26 Indianapolis Colts
The pick: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
Harry is a big receiver that will help Luck in the redzone and could be a go to target for him.
1.27 Oakland Raiders (DAL)
The pick: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
My number two tight end comes off the board to help out Derek Carr and AB.
1.28 Los Angeles Chargers
The pick: Taylor Rapp, S, Washington
Rapp has great sideline to sideline range that he uses well. He won’t miss a tackle and will be a big contributor in the Bolts’ defense.
1.29 Kansas City Chiefs
The pick: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State
Burns is a terrific pass rusher, if he fills his frame up nicely he can definitely be a force for the Chiefs
1.30 Green Bay Packers (NO)
The pick: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware
Adderley has risen up draft boards since his phenomenal Senior Bowl week and has become my #2 rated safety behind Rapp. Packers fill a big hole in their defense.
1.31 Los Angeles Rams
The pick: Garrett Bradbury, IOL, NC State
Bradbury is the top center whose stock rose gradually since the Senior Bowl and recently the combine. He also fills a void as they cut Sullivan their starting center.
1.32 New England Patriots
The pick: Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama
With Rob Gronkowski possibly retiring the Pats pick up a talented pass catcher at TE who could also help out with his blocking.
