UPDATED MOCK!! (New Coach.....New QB?)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

REMAINING FA PROJECTIONS:

S Eric Berry to Dallas

DT Ndamakung Suh to Seattle or Indy

ROUND 1

1.     Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma

This seems to be the general consensus. New coach new QB is the usual theme of drafts and this one should be no different.

2.     San Francisco 49ers – Quinnen Williams DT Alabama

Acquiring Dee Ford made this decision much easier. Buckner and Williams will be a problem on all 3 downs and will create nightmares planning wise considering the complimentary talent on the edges.

 

*TRADE*

To NYJ: 4th ovr + 2020 3rd rd pick

To OAK: 3rd ovr + 196th ovr

 

3.     Oakland Raiders (from NYJ) – Nick Bosa EDGE Ohio State

This pick is going to be highly desired with Bosa getting passed the top 2 picks. The Raiders ensure they get their guy and the Jets are comfortable taking one step back and guaranteeing a guy who may be a better scheme fit.

4.     New York Jets (from OAK) – Josh Allen EDGE Kentucky

Allen as a 3-4 OLB may prove to be a better fit than Bosa. The decent addition they get in next years draft makes this a real win for the Jets who continue to work on building a defense akin to the level they had just a decade ago. They tried really hard to get Anthony Barr, who Josh McDaniels'ed the crap out of them and I have heard a ton of comparisons between Barr and Allen

 

*TRADE*

To TB: 11th ovr + 42nd ovr + 2020 3rd rd pick

To CIN: 5th ovr + 145th ovr + 2020 4th rd pick

 

5.     Cincinnati Bengals (from TB) - Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

New coach, New QB. Might be a shocker but Dalton has proven despite the talent surrounding him, can not take the Bengals to the next level. Granted, he will start the season, his rope will be short as the thought of Haskins/Mixon/Green is supremely more appealing.

6.     New York Giants – Rashan Gary DL Michigan

Gary can fill 2 possible roles on this defense given his unique skill set and size. BJ and Dalvin Tomlinson make up a good DT/NT combo in the 3-4 scheme, now Gary can come in and play that DE spot and be an immediate interior pass rusher with the potential to be a top level edge rusher.

7.     Jacksonville Jaguars – Jawaan Taylor OT Florida

The addition of Nick Foles has made protecting the new franchise a must. Cam Robinson will be back from injury and can now move back to his more comfortable role at RT.

8.     Detroit Lions – Greedy Williams CB LSU

Some think Greedy is overrated. I think he will find his way into the Top 10, especially in the way this draft has shaped up. Detroit bolsters one of the best DL’s in the game with Snacks, Robinson, Hand, and now Flowers. Getting guys on the back end will only assist in giving Matt Patricia the type of defense is used to.

9.     Buffalo Bills – Andre Dillard OT Washington State

Josh Allen had to run….ALOT. Not by design like Jackson in Baltimore, but by necessity. Dillard is the best pass protector in the draft and immediately upgrades their OL. Dawkins goes to RT.

10. Denver Broncos – Jonah Williams OL Alabama

The ability to play both tackles and both guards makes Jonah Williams a cannot miss prospect. He will likely make his money at Guard the way Scherff and Pugh did before him, but in a pinch, he can fill in at tackle and the line will not lose much of a beat.

11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from CIN) – Devin White ILB LSU

A dream scenario for TB I am sure. A guy they will think long and hard about getting at 5, they trade back and get at 11 along with an extra 2nd rd pick. This makes them players to trade back into the late 1st round to acquire that 5th year contract option on a guy they may really like.

 

*TRADE*

To GB: 15th ovr + 96th ovr + 153rd ovr

To WAS: 12th ovr + 185th ovr

 

12. Washington Redskins (from GB) – Drew Lock QB Missouri

Much like Cincinnati hedging they bets jumping ahead of NYG for Haskins, Washington will leap in front of Miami to get Lock. When Smith got hurt, they completely fell apart and it showed that this team is probably more in need of a young up and comer than they thought just 1 year ago.

 

*TRADE*

To MIA: 17th ovr + 95th ovr + 132nd ovr

To NYG: 13th ovr + 116th ovr + 151st ovr

 

13. New York Giants (from MIA) – Montez Sweat EDGE Mississippi

The Giants wait no longer to get a guy they will strongly consider taking at 6. Health issues make them pass at 6 but with Miami being in a position to trade back with the top 3 QBs gone, the Giants draft another insane athlete to bring some much needed threats to what was a relatively lack-luster front 7 performance outside of Hill and Tomlinson last year.

14. Atlanta Falcons – Ed Oliver DT Houston

Aaron Donald is the best defensive player in the league but seemingly has not done enough for undersized DT’s with freak athleticism. Grady Jarrett and Ed Oliver in the interior will hopefully create more opportunities for their DE’s, especially the inconsistent Beasley.

15. Green Bay Packers (from WAS) – DK Metcalf WR Ole Miss

After suring up their pass rush with two big FA moves, they decide to get a major threat opposite Davante Adams. More opportunities will open for both guys and a AB/JuJu type combo could be the scariest combo with Rodgers at QB.

16. Carolina Panthers – Clelien Ferrell EDGE Clemson

Ferrell immediately fills a Day 1 starter position with his top 10 level talent, slipping into the middle of the draft.

17. Miami Dolphins (from NYG via CLE) – Cody Ford OL Oklahoma

A unique position for Miami who just signed Fitzpatrick to play QB. After missing the Top3 in this draft, they decide to look to their OL. Ford is much the same as Jonah Williams, he will likely make a career at OG but plugging in at RT may be where it all begins for him like Justin Pugh.

18. Minnesota Vikings – Christian Wilkins DT Clemson

In any other draft, Wilkins may be a Top 5 pick, which makes this an easy choice for Minnesota who missed out on resigning Sheldon Richardson.

19. Tennessee Titans – TJ Hockenson TE Iowa

Delanie Walker will turn 126 years old this season, so getting a replacement is important. Hockenson would be a Top 10 pick if teams weren’t terrified by how it worked out for teams using Top 10 picks on TE’s lately.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers – Byron Murphy CB Washington

After Joe Haden, a stud CB is needed on this defense. They have passable talents but Murphy has the ability to blow people away much like Lattimore and Humphery have done the past 2 seasons.

 

*TRADE*

To SEA: 23rd ovr + 161st ovr + 2020 5th rd pick

To HOU: 21st ovr

 

21. Houston Texans (from SEA) – Deandre Baker CB Georgia

An older group with little to offer in depth, Baker is a Day 1 starter and takes the pressure off the safeties and the pass rush.

22. Baltimore Ravens – Devin Bush ILB Michigan

CJ Mosley is gone, this is one of the easier decisions. They maybe need to trade up to get him when push comes to shove but if he makes it passed 17th overall, I think this is where he ends up.

23. Seattle Seahawks (from HOU) – Brian Burns EDGE Florida State

Pete Carroll likes those hybrid OLB/DE type players and Burns fits that mould. He can play OLB and can be let loose on the QB with the best of them when required.

24. Oakland Raiders (from CHI) – Josh Jacobs RB Alabama

Fearing he won’t make it to 27, the Raiders pull the trigger to further the creation of one of the better skill player groups.

 

*TRADE*

To PHI: 29th ovr + 2020 4th rd pick

To KC: 25th ovr + 2020 5th rd pick

 

25. Kansas City Chiefs (from PHI) – Jachai Polite EDGE Florida

After being content to move down, KC jumps up to grab a pass rusher after giving up on both of their starters from a year ago. Polite has some question marks but with the overwhelming talent and how great the coaching staff is, they trust they can make Polite see his potential quickly.

26. Indianapolis Colts – Jeffery Simmons DT Mississippi State

They take a flyer on a Top 15 talent who will more than likely sit his rookie year out on IR. Myles Jack and Jaylon Smith are 2 notable players who did that. Indy has so much young talent, this is a move they feel they can afford to make, even if they sign Suh (which is more than likely a 2 year deal max). Signing Justin Houston could stifle that.

 

*TRADE*

To OAK: 34th ovr + 89th ovr

To IND: 27th ovr + 140th ovr + 218th ovr

 

27. Indianapolis Colts (from OAK via DAL) – Jonathan Abram S Mississippi State

With that said, they are very comfortably moving up and grabbing Simmons teammate Abram to play on the back end. They resigned Geathers, but to suggest that an upgrade would not be needed may be short sighted. I think the Colts are comfortable doing this. Raiders are happy to move back and get an extra pick to make up for their earlier trade up.

28. Los Angeles Chargers – Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson

They got flat out bullied by NE in the playoffs in the trenches and this pick will provide some relief for their talented edge rushers.

 

*TRADE*

To PHI: 36th ovr + 104th ovr

To SF: 29th ovr

 

29. San Francisco 49ers (from PHI via KC) – Garrett Bradbury OT NC State

Joshua Garnett’s shadow may be lurking the background but Bradbury is coming out a much better prospect and can play all 3 interior positions.

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

After taking Metcalf earlier, they go for another great athlete at TE. Having legitimate threats at different levels of the passing game will only make Adams and more importantly Rodgers, more effective.

 

*TRADE*

To LAR: 39th ovr + 107th ovr + 2020 5th rd pick

To TB: 31st ovr

 

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from LAR) – Deionte Thompson S Alabama

After trading down earlier, they use some extra capital to move back into the 1st round and continue to revamp their defense. The Rams are happy to trade back to get some more picks in what will be a light haul for them otherwise.

 

*TRADE*

To NE: 33rd ovr + 174th ovr

To ARZ: 32nd ovr

 

32. Arizona Cardinals (from NE) – Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma

Cards make a big move to get a 5th year option on their new franchise QB’s teammate. Immediate chemistry and the legendary mentor on the roster, Brown and Murray are primed to be a scary duo for the next decade in  the desert.

 

ROUND 2

33. New England Patriots (from ARZ) – Irv Smith Jr. TE Alabama

Gronk is a perennial retirement threat. The Pats offense performed on a near unstoppable level when they fielded 2 legit TE threats, so even if Gronk stays, Smith stands to make an immediate impact.

34. Oakland Raiders (from IND via NYJ) – Mack Wilson ILB Alabama

Another great talent, this time at the 2nd level. Upgrading the front 7 is always seemingly the MO of teams who are rebuilding their rosters come draft day.

35. Oakland Raiders – Elgton Jenkins OL Mississippi

Osemele is gone. Jenkins immediately fills in at guard and can be a long term answer at C if Rodney Hudson finds himself without a contract in the coming seasons.

36. Philadelphia Eagles (from SF) – Dalton Risner OT Kansas State

A double trade back and still land a Day 1 starter. Lane Johnson may go to RT but depending on how things shape up in camp, it may not be necessary. With that said, Risner is worst case scenario their Day 1 starter at RT or LG.

37. New York Giants – Kaleb McGary OT Washington

After having the most horrendous offensive line just 2 seasons ago, the G-Men look to keep building their offensive line. With Zietler at RG to go with Hernandez at LG, McGary can be Day 1 at RT and be groomed as the eventual LT if Solder can’t figure out how to have a bounce back year after a season riddled with injury and inconsistency.

 

*TRADE*

To JAX: 48th ovr + 95th ovr

To MIA: 38th ovr + 109th ovr

 

38. Miami Dolphins (from JAX) – Daniel Jones QB Duke

A fairly ideal situation for both teams with this move. Jones may have felt a bit early in the mid-1st round but early 2nd round is a good situation for Miami, who with Fitzmagic, can afford to let Jones sit and learn and not be rushed in, which seems to be where his bust potential comes from.

39. Los Angeles Rams (from TB) – Erik McCoy OL Texas A&M

The only question the Rams need to answer is does McCoy play C or RG in Week 1? How the rest of the draft plays out will make that decision more clear but having a piece in place is key to keeping their offense moving forward.

40. Buffalo Bills – Nkeal Harry WR Arizona State

The most WR needy team in football pulls the trigger. Helping Josh Allen I feel will be the general theme of Buffalo’s draft class in 2019.

41. Denver Broncos – Rock Ya-Sin CB Temple

Guilty of having the greatest name in the history of ever, Ya-Sin will also fill some voids left but the departures of Talib and Roby over the past couple of seasons.

42. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from CIN) – Jaylon Ferguson EDGE Louisiana Tech

Going to a 3-4 defense will likely lead to them parting ways with JPP after just one season, and Ferguson is more of a fit for that 3-4 edge rusher. Yes, I noticed also, TB addressing all 3 levels of their new defense early in this draft.

43. Detroit Lions – Hakeem Butler WR Iowa State

Parting ways with Golden Tate was an interesting decision but bringing in a big body with a high ceiling to put opposite the break out Golladay is a need that must be addressed. The question really weighing on Detroit’s mind moving forward is, can Stafford get them to the next level or not?

44. Green Bay Packers – Tre Lemar ILB Clemson

Lemar is a hard player to grade and subsequently mock. I think GB’s early haul, makes this pick a little easier, even if it may be seen as a reach to some. Trading down a 2nd time in the first 2 rounds could also be a possibility.

45. Atlanta Falcons – Greg Little OT Ole Miss

Little is another player who hurt his draft stock the closer we got to the big day but his talent is hard to deny. At 45, he could prove to be a steal.

46. Washington Redskins – Taylor Rapp S Washington

Signing Landon Collins was step in the right direction. Rapp coming in to pair with him transforms the back end of this Skins defense.

47. Carolina Panthers – Nasir Adderley S Delaware

When have the Panthers had a true dominant force at Safety? Their secondary has really been a 1 man show for the last half decade with Norman and Jackson being really the only stars. Reid playing as that 8th man in the box, run support safety/moneybacker is more ideal, Adderley lets that occur with more comfort.

 

*TRADE*

To JAX: 65th ovr + 103rd ovr + 2020 4th rd pick

To ARZ: 48th ovr + 2020 6th rd pick

 

48. Arizona Cardinals (from JAX via MIA) – Dremont Jones DT Ohio State

The Cards continue their very aggressive draft, trading up to acquire another Day 1 starter. Jones talent and potential more importantly is a motivating factor.

49. Cleveland Browns – David Edwards OT Wisconsin

After being a juggernaut of weapons, they now look to give Mayfield as much protection as possible to spread that ball around. Edwards can play both tackles and will certainly be a quality starter week 1.

50. Minnesota Vikings – Chris Lindstrom OG Boston College

Cousins got paid a ton of money, so keeping him standing upright is going to be a priority every offseason.

51. Tennessee Titans – Oshane Ximines EDGE Old Dominion

Another guy who is difficult to grade, Ximines brings the mystery of the small school star, but the raw talent of a potential breakout star.

 

*TRADE*

To PIT: 56th ovr + 134th ovr

To NE: 52nd ovr + 175th ovr

 

52. New England Patriots (from PIT) – Zach Allen DL Boston College

Uncharacteritic maybe, but Allen is a perfect fit to fill in for the void left by the departure of Flowers to Detroit. This is a value pick for a guy who would likely have been a first round pick if he stayed in school 1 less season.

53. Philadelphia Eagles (from BAL) – AJ Brown WR Ole Miss

They tried to find an answer in Golden Tate but it was too little too late. Brown is a long term answer to provide Wentz with a reliable weapon. Jeffery’s production to money ratio may make him expendable sooner than later, making more sense of this pick.

54. Houston Texans (from SEA) – Jerry TIllery DT Notre Dame

Tillery will fill the final opening on that starting DL.

55. Houston Texans – Trayvon Mullen CB Clemson

Taking a page out of Packers draft strategy from just 1 year ago, the Texans draft  another CB early, leading to the potential of starting 2 rookies at CB this upcoming season. With the quality of their defense up front, it should theoretically make development smoother for the rookie tandem.

56. Pittsburgh Steelers (from NE via CHI) – Germaine Pratt ILB NC State

May seem like a reach but after a trade down a few picks earlier, the Steelers get a true linebacker on the roster. Barron is much more of a hybrid like Deone Bucanon, so bringing in Pratt, if anything else, provides and upgrade on early downs.

57. Philadelphia Eagles – Julian Love CB Notre Dame

Eagles fans are a little higher on their CB group than pretty much everyone else. Personally, outside of Darby, they don’t have much and who knows how Darby will play after his injury. Douglas doesn’t exactly light the world on fire and Sidney Jones hasn’t looked as great as he did prior to his leg injury at the end of his college career.

58. Dallas Cowboys – Gerald Willis DT Miami

Interior defensive line is really their biggest position of need. As of this writing, Berry is NOT signed in Dallas but given the needs of teams around the league, it seems that really only Dallas and Cleveland are in play for him realistically….which definitely means he is signing with neither cause F ME right?

59. Indianapolis Colts – JJ Arcegia-Whiteside WR Stanford

Funchess is in a 1 yr, prove it style contract, but even if it does work out, WR is really the weaker point of that offense given their week to week game planning.

60. Los Angeles Chargers – Yodny Cajuste OT West Virginia

I have seen Cajuste mocked as early as the late 1st round and as late as the mid 4th round. I think he will go much higher than his basement seems to be just based on the needs of some of the better teams, like the Chargers.

61. Kansas City Chiefs – Amani Oruwariye CB Penn State

Oruwariye is probably going to be better than what a 61st overall pick would be projected to be and KC is willing to bank on that potential.

 

*TRADE*

To NO: 104th ovr + 127th ovr + 2020 4th rd pick

To PHI: 62nd ovr

 

62. Philadelphia Eagles (from NO) – David Montgomery RB Iowa State

Pushing their chips into the middle of the table, the Eagles look to find their true #1 RB and look for it in Montgomery. Actively moving around the draft board to fill the needs they have is probably the right move. The compensation may be off a bit but the Saints acquiring more draft picks may be in their future.

63. Kansas City Chiefs (from LAR) – Connor McGovern OL Penn State

After losing Morse, they really opened 2 positions of need on the OL. McGovern is probably more of a guard but may be capable of transitioning to C.

64. New England Patriots – Parris Campbell WR Ohio State

His speed and athleticism is the selling factor. Edelman’s age, Cordarelle and Hogan’s departure, and the question marks surrounding the future of Josh Gordon make this pick significantly easier to make.

Interesting trades for Oakland. I wouldn't be that upset if we traded up one spot to ensure we get Bosa tbh. The gap between him and Allen is enough to do it for me.

Aren't the Jets going to a 4-3 with Greg Williams in town now? Bosa would make more sense.

Love the trade down. Not sure we go McCoy though, I like the player it’s just hard to tell right now which way they go. Could be iol, dt, cb, Edge or a safety.

For Philly, we assume our starting corners are Darby, Maddox, and Leblanc.  If Leblanc slumps, we can throw Sidney in the slot.  If Maddox doesn’t play well, we can throw Douglas or Jalen Mills outside.  Love might be an upgrade at the second cb spot, but he might just lump in with the rest of our guys.  

That said I don’t hate the pick because I like his coverage skills and we have FOUR second rounders in this scenario.

I like all the offensive picks, especially AJ Brown for the reasons you mentioned.

i keep hearing they are maintaining a 3-4 scheme. They might be. Even then, I still think they would be willing to move down cause Allen does have the skills to play OLB and then go to DE in passing situations and be basically Anthony Barr 2.0 (who they almost signed)

I think that's the point I made exactly. As an Eagles fan you drop those names and feel good....I see those names and think not having Odell won't be that big a deal against that group lol

I agree. They oddly can go a lot of places yet are really at no risk of falling off in terms of production on either side of the ball. I just went safe with an aging center and losing Saffold.

Taylor Rapp is going to the skins doesn’t really make sense both he and Collins are strictly box safeties you should give him to the Browns at 49 😉

Yet Julian Love, a slowish cover corner who gets burned deep, would worry you?

Aging center is already gone, we didn’t pick up Sullivan’s option. We have Brian Allen we drafted in the 4th last year and he got a lot of first team reps with the way McVay and Kromer run practices. He’s also spoken very highly of by them which makes the pick questionable. Also there is Austin Blythe at RG with center experience but that opens a hole at Guard. 

 

Saffold is gone and the plan plan right now is last years 3rd round pick Joe Noteboom will play LG until Whitworth retires then he’ll move out to LT. An IOL makes sense but it may end up being a couple depth guys later. 

 

I do do like McCoy and Lindstrom who is another IOL possibility here, just not sure they go that way. Others are likely to disagree with me but I get the feeling this pick will be a depth/rotational guy this year and called on to start next year. Which is why I’m leaning Ya-Sin or Mullen’s here. Talib is aging and on his last year and Peters is on his last year. So a corner taken this year could start in 2020 after being a nickel or dime player in 2019.

I doubt MN would actually grab a DT in round one, but that would be a great draft to grab Wilkins and Lindstrom.

OL is such a desperate need I'm inclined to believe that is the direction they go in round one as there is a need for two IOL. 

At DT, Shamar Stephen is returning and they seem comfortable with Jaleel Johnson. They need a penetrating UT type but I think they end up getting that player in round 3 or 4.
