ROUND 1

1.     Arizona Cardinals – Nick Bosa EDGE Ohio State

Cardinals need just about everything, so taking the BPA is an easy decision. Picking anyone else at 1 is just going to be an instance of overthinking.

2.     San Francisco 49ers – Josh Allen EDGE Kentucky

Solomon Thomas needs to step up but has played better inside than on the EDGE. Armstead, Buckner, Thomas, and then Allen would be a pretty interesting grouping on passing downs.  Allen can play OLB on 1st down.

3.     New York Jets – Quinnen Williams DT Alabama

Gregg Williams is the new defensive coordinator and putting Quinnen and Leonard together in the interior line is a headache offensive coordinators are going have for a while.

4.     Oakland Raiders – Rashan Gary EDGE Michigan

Gary is climbing up draft boards and the Raiders have always loved the Combine hero.

TRADE

To Tampa Bay: 7th ovr, 103rd ovr, 2020 3rd rd pick

To Jacksonville: 5th ovr

5.     Jacksonville Jaguars (from TB) – Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

Not confident that he will make it past the Giants, the Jags make a trade and draft their new franchise QB. Bortles may start the year but he certainly will not finish it.

6.     New York Giants – Jonah Williams OT Alabama

They stay tight and take the best OL on the board. Their o-line has been a huge weakness and they solidify the right side of their line here. Williams may be the new Pugh on this line, playing mostly RG but bumping out to tackle need be.

7.     Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Ed Oliver DL Houston

This may look controversial but realize that Tampa is moving to the 3-4 defense. Vea is going to be the NT bumping McCoy to the 3-4 DE. Oliver’s comparison to Aaron Donald make him look like the can’t miss pick of the draft. Those 3 being the defensive line going into Week 1 with is one of dreams.

TRADE

To Detroit: 10th ovr, 72nd ovr

To Denver: 8th ovr, 136th ovr

8.     Denver Broncos (from DET) – Drew Lock QB Missouri

They move up 2 spots to just ensure that no one else leap frogs them at any point in this draft to steal their guy. Much like Bortles, Keenum will likely start the season but he will not finish it.

9.     Buffalo Bills – Greedy Williams CB LSU

They hit big time with White out of LSU and now taking another Tiger will solidify their DB group to become one of the better groups in football.

TRADE

To Detroit: 11th ovr, 139th ovr

To Cincinnati: 10th ovr, 171st ovr

10. Cincinnati Bengals (from DET via DEN) – Devin White ILB LSU

A bidding war begins to grab White and the Bengals can’t allow anyone to take the guy they have had targeted since Day 1 of the offseason, if not sooner.

11. Detroit Lions (from CIN) – Deandre Baker CB Georgia

They gave themselves some draft capital by moving back twice, but only 3 spots. Fill a need and get a Day 1 starter.

12. Green Bay Packers – Montez Sweat EDGE Mississippi State

Sweat fits more of the 3-4 OLB mold then Ferrell does and this fills an immediate need for the Packers who have struggled with pass rushers.

TRADE

To Miami: 16th ovr, 109th ovr

To Carolina: 13th ovr

13. Carolina Panthers (from MIA) – Clelien Ferrell EDGE Clemson

Peppers retires. Addison is average. This defense needs guys who can disruptive on the edge to help out that solid LB group and a budding DB group on the backend.

14. Atlanta Falcons – Jeffery Simmons DT Mississippi State

Its difficult to remember a time where the Falcons had a solid and consistent defensive line year-to-year. Past off field issues are red flags to say the least but he has done all the right things lately.

15. Washington Redskins – DK Metcalf WR Ole Miss

Oh boy are the Skins in quite the conundrum. They will certainly flirt with the idea of taking a QB but I still believe that taking one is a reach at this point. They go with the high ceiling and hope this isn’t Doctson 2.0

16. Miami Dolphins (from CAR) – Cody Ford OG Oklahoma

He, like Jonah Williams, will probably make most of his money at a guard but his versatility to play tackle will give Miami some flexibility.

17. Cleveland Browns – Christian Wilkins DT Clemson

Personally, I like this pick to be Marquise Brown and put another weapon with Baker Mayfield, a familiar one at that but everyone in hear screams about going DT so, here ya go.

18. Minnesota Vikings – Jawaan Taylor OT Florida

They need a legit franchise LT so they grab one right here and hope he turns out better than Matt Kalil.

19. Tennessee Titans – Jachai Polite EDGE Florida

Back to back Gators. Morgan likely a cap casuality. Landry and Polite will set the tone for new era of EDGE rushers in Tennessee.

20. Pittsbugh Steelers – Mack Wilson ILB Alabama

Ryan Shazier will never play again so that is a hole that must be filled for this defense. They could go WR depending on what happens with Brown but as of now, its ILB.

21. Seattle Seahawks – Greg Little OT Ole Miss

Their offensive line was not nearly as bad as people projected but they still have their weaknesses and this can be the final piece to that puzzle.

22. Baltimore Ravens – Josh Jacobs RB Alabama

May be a surprise but WR is not a big need in Baltimore. Jackson does not use them. They will play offense inside the hashes with strong TE’s and the RPO. Jacobs gives Jackson a compliment moving forward and allows the Ravens to let a couple of those expiring contracts leave at the RB position.

23. Houston Texans – Byron Murphy CB Washington

The Texans have most of their money invested in their defensive line and pass rushers, which makes grabbing young players who can start Day 1 on the backend is essential in the next couple of years for Houston. Murphy could very well go Top 15.

24. Oakland Raiders (from CHI) – Devin Bush ILB Michigan

They grabbed their defensive lineman and now move to the next level and grab their new star linebacker. Bush will be this years Darius Leonard, mark my words.

25. Philadelphia Eagles – Oshane Ximines EDGE Old Dominion

Brandon Graham is gone. Michael Bennett will be gone. They need a pass rusher opposite Derek Barnett and they grab one right away.

26. Indianapolis Colts – Trayvon Mullen CB Clemson

Their defense was a happy surprise. They continue to add to that group in this draft and will likely do the same in FA.

TRADE

To Oakland: 37th ovr, 126th ovr, 198th ovr, 2020 3rd rd pick

To NY Giants: 27th ovr

27. New York Giants (from OAK via DAL) – Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma

The Giants will not wait any longer and trade up into the 1st round and grab their new franchise QB. Size and commitment to football causes him to drop but the prospect of grabbing him with a 5th year option is too much for the Giants to pass up, pairing him with Barkley and OBJ.

28. Los Angeles Chargers – Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson

They got bullied, flat out bullied by the Patriots. They need a big time interior presence on their defensive line. When you can double team both edge rushers and not pay the price for it, there is a problem. Lawrence should cause chaos in the interior.

29. Kansas City Chiefs – Nasir Adderley DB Delaware

They will jump back and forth with a few names at the safety position but eventually settle on Adderley.

30. Green Bay Packers (from NO) – Noah Fant TE Iowa

What in the world is happening with Jimmy Graham??? I think he is gone and they fill his spot with Fant.

31. Los Angeles Rams – Brian Burns EDGE Florida State

The Rams need some sort of EDGE rush presence. They traded for Fowler but resigning him may be difficult depending on what other FA moves they make in house.

32. New England Patriots – Daniel Jones QB Duke

Only the Patriots can draft a guy who won’t see the field for atleast 2 years but it wouldn’t be the first time they grabbed a QB early in the draft and then flipped him for a draft pick later.

ROUND 2

33. Arizona Cardinals – Dre-Mont Jones DT Ohio State

They continue to build up their defensive line with an interior presense. The hope that Jones and Bosa can bring some chemistry to the field right out of the gate.

34. Indianapolis Colts (from NYJ) – N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State

A big body compliment for the smaller, more elusive TY Hilton. Keep building around the great pieces you have.

35. Oakland Raiders – Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma

They need weapons on offense. They lacked so much in terms of playmakers.

36. San Francisco 49ers – Tre Lamar LB Clemson

Josh Allen might be an OLB on early downs but they 49ers need a 3 down linebacker to compliment sophomore Fred Warner who had an up and down season.

37. Oakland Raiders (from NYG) – TJ Hockenson TE Iowa

Another solid weapon to add to the offense. Maintaining a balanced draft and balanced FA strategy is important for a Raiders team that lacked not only playmaking but leadership on the field.

TRADE

To Jacksonville: WR Antonio Brown

To Pittsburgh: 38th ovr + 2020 conditional pick

38. Pittsburgh Steelers (from JAX) – Zach Allen EDGE Boston College

TJ Watt has been a monster but Bud Dupree just can’t seem to get anything consistent going. Being able to dump him in favour of a guy who could very well be a Top 25, Top 20 pick is can’t miss. Losing Brown and Bell in the same off-season is painful but it is something the front office should take a hard look at, seeing their 2 best players did not want to be there.

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Deionte Thompson S Alabama

They struggle in pass coverage, so adding a DB who can start Day 1 and comes in with a winning attitude is a good move for the Bucs, who go into 2019 unaware of exactly what their defensive identity is.

40. Buffalo Bills – Yodney Cajuste OT West Virginia

Josh Allen’s mobility really bailed him out more times than what was necessary. Dion Dawkins may be a better RT but even if he stays at LT, Cajuste can slide to RT.

41. Denver Broncos – Julian Love CB Notre Dame

They showed how much of an impact Talib made on their defense when they found themselves incapable of replacing him with any of the guys they had on the roster.

42. Cincinnati Bengals – Andre Dillard OT Washington State

Fairly straight forward. They hit on LB in round 1 and they know they cannot neglect their protection.

43. Detroit Lions – Jaylon Ferguson EDGE Louisiana Tech

They missed on Rashan Gary, who would have been perfect. But they grab a pass rusher who Patricia can mold into a true weapon and in the “Patriot Way” they will have an elite level defensive line rotation.

44. Green Bay Packers – Taylor Rapp S Washington

With no ILB’s who can warrant being picked right now, they grab some backend for their defense after drafting CB’s extremely well the past 2 seasons.

45. Atlanta Falcons – Dalton Risner OT Kansas St.

Looking at this draft as a way to instantly improve themselves in the trenches on both sides of the football.

46. Washington Redskins – Will Grier QB West Virginia

Alex Smith is done most likely. They will flirt with taking a QB in Round 1 but decide against it. They can’t pass on Grier who they were likely considering at 15.

47. Carolina Panthers – Chauncey Gardner-Johnson S Florida

Panther fans probably hate not getting help on offense but the weapons they have are blending in nicely together. Maintaining some dominance on defense is essential.

48. Miami Dolphins – Riley Ridley WR Georgia

He is one of the more difficult WR’s to grade but his workouts and enough time spent watching his film will make this an easy pick for the Fins. Parker likely is cut or traded. Can they count on Albert Wilson to continue his play prior to injury?

49. Cleveland Browns – David Edwards OT Wisconsin

Their offensive line is fairly underrated on the interior but they need to solidy their OTs.

50. Minnesota Vikings – Elgton Jenkins OL Mississippi State

They paid Kirk Cousins, so you need to protect him. Build some strength and versatility on that offensive line. He plays any of the interior roles.

51. Tennessee Titans – AJ Brown WR Ole Miss

There is always some reprehensive thoughts behind drafting Ole Miss players the past decade. But in the middle of the 2nd round, this is the perfect place to take a risk, and potentially land a legitimate weapon opposite Corey Davis.

52. Pittsburgh Steelers – Jonathan Abram S Mississippi State

Continue to build a true Steeler defense and regain the identity that has seemingly been lost.

TRADE

To Philadelphia: RB Leonard Fournette + 2020 5th rd pick

To Jacksonville: 53rd ovr + 2020 4th rd pick

53. Jacksonville Jaguars (from PHI via BAL) – Chris Lindstrom OG Boston College

New QB and new star WR but you have to keep them standing up right. Fournette being moved is giant but resigning Yeldon and then drafting a RB from this class in a later round will have to fill the void. The Eagles get a RB1 in the locker room on a rookie contract.

54. Houston Texans (from SEA) – Irv Smith Jr. TE Alabama

This is the guy they are hoping turns into what they wanted out of Fiedorwicsz

55. Houston Texans – Michael Dieter OG Wisconsin

Continue to find support for Watson and allow him time to find some of those weapons.

56. New England Patriots (from CHI) – Caleb Wilson TE UCLA

Gronk is on retirement watch and is likely done. Must get a replacement in the locker room for him and Wilson is a stud.

57. Philadelphia Eagles – Amani Oruwariye CB Penn State

The Eagles are going to need to improve that secondary with it aging in all the wrong places and underachieving in the others.

58. Dallas Cowboys – Gerald Willis DT Miami

They are not going to lose Lawrence and they got Taco on the other side. They may look at LB but there may not be one available here worth this early of a pick.

59. Indianapolis Colts – TeVon Coney LB Notre Dame

A bit of a reach here but adding for skill to that defense is an easy decision knowing the success they had with early level draft picks last year.

60. Los Angeles Chargers – Ryan Finley QB NC State

They drop in a QB to groom under Philip Rivers. He is a very raw talent but not having to play right away and not having too many holes on their team, this is a good time to pull the trigger on this.

61. Kansas City Chiefs – Martez Ivey OT Florida

They will look to continue to build around Mahomes. Though he will definitely not repeat what he did this past year, keeping him up right and allowing him to further develop as a passer will only prevent the “sophomore slump” so to speak going into his 2nd year as a starters.

62. New Orleans Saints – Damien Harris RB Alabama

They lose Mark Ingram to FA, 220lbs is a good compliment to Kamara. RB are dropping like stones in this draft but there will likely be a run of them in the 3rd round if this is how the draft shakes out for the position.

63. Kansas City Chiefs (from LAR) – Kelvin Harmon WR NC State

Yes, weapons. Weapons, weapons, and more weapons. Watkins is playing on a huge contract so if Harmon gels well in the offense, it makes it easier to part ways with Watkins if the production does not increase (less than 600 yards in last 3 seasons).

64. New England Patriots – Hakeem Butler WR Iowa State

The Patriots usually do not have big, tall WR’s. Josh Gordon was that, but he is more than likely done, barring the commissioner giving him a 45th chance. At 6’6, he is towering over basically everyone on that Patriot offense and is an immediate red zone threat.

I have a hard time believing that Mike Brown would give up a box of Titlist golf balls, ;let alone draft capital, to move up one spot.  I ,like the pick though.

 

In the second, we have to go OT, but I like Risner more.  Put him on the right side and let him maul.  But that's just me.

 

Works out well for Cincy

I could live with this Browns mock, a little confused that you don't have the Browns doing anything in FA considering they have like $83 million in cap space but at least the draft was good. The Browns have had great luck with Wisconsin OT's so I'm hoping for another 10 time pro-bowler who doesn't get hurt once until year 11

I like your first 2 rounds regarding the Patriots although I still don't think a 1st round QB will happen. I am however very certain that the Patriots would match 13M APY for Flowers.

I see Trey Flowers signing for more. Also if Denver is dead set on moving up for Lock this would be the way I would want it to happen. Not giving up any 2020 picks and getting a later pick in return for the third they give up to move up. Second round is good and fills a need.

That's crazy for the Bills.

Williams to the Bills is about as bad a draft fit as you could find for any player and any team in the draft.

Williams, the cornerback who can't tackle. With Sean McDermott the HC who bangs on and on and on about DBs needing to be able to tackle.

It's never going to happen.

Furthermore they statistically had the best pass defense in the league last season. Their DBs are already one of the best positional groups in football.

Suh is almost as bad. They spent big on DT last year.

Sorry, but that's about as unrealistic as it's possible to get for the Bills

Mark Ingram signs 3yr $20mill w/ Kansas City Chiefs

 

No thank you, I'd rather stick with who we have and look for a late round pick or UDFA. Save the money for other positions.

I like the pick but it could be a tad early for him.

61. Kansas City Chiefs – Martez Ivey OT Florida

I don't like this pick at all. Unless I missed something, Ivey should be going in the 4th or later. Give us BPA defensive player here.

I like him quite a bit so good pick here.

Jags wont have Bortles on the roster. hes done finished.  

the trade up for haskins seems a bit on the low end for compensation but im not gonna complain there.

the jags are in a terrible cap position and dont need to trade a 2nd for brown whos much too expensive for the team.  the jags would likely pick dalton risner to be the starting RT for the now :)

Zach Allen will not be a OLB in the NFL.  He would be a 5-tech DE for the Steelers.  Love or Oruwariye would be better picks.

 

If you want to give them a Dlineman that they would draft look at Isaiah Buggs, DE/DT, Alabama

Ferrell, Hockinsen, and Risner would be much better for the Packers.  Actually that would almost be an ideal draft.

Simmons + Risner to the Falcons  Yessirrrr  let it be so my friend and let the Falcon fans rejoice.  It's about time the Falcons put in maximum effort into the trenches.  Im talking 1st 3 rounds + 2 more in FA.   DT, DE, 1T NT    RG, LG, and RT   Thats 6 total we either have a need at or need to be upgraded at.  We need to atleast come out with 4 to 5 of them at the start of the season and hope 1 or 2 of our other guys steps up or becomes really good depth.

The Bills interior was not good. Star was incredibly average, took double teams cause the rest of the team was whack. Suh brings hard nosed attitude to that defense and will open up opportunities for their edge rushers. Outside of White, who plays CB in Buffalo? There is no #2.

Cutting Malik Jackson and Marcell Dareus opens up almost 30mill in cap space.

I just think that their focus will be continuing to build with the draft. I think they will sign people in free agency but I think they will just be focusing on getting strong role players cause they will be giving big time extensions to Peppers, Ward, Garrett, Chubb, and Mayfield within the next 3 to 4 years. There is also guys like Njoku, Avery, Randall, etc. who would be nice to keep around long term also. I know they can invest in someone short term but why not give a younger talent playing time instead.
