2019 Collaborative NFL Mock Draft

The Mock Draft is the stable of the NFL Draft Process and here at NFL Draft Geek that is our calling card providing you with some of the most accurate mock drafts in the entire industry. While we’ve had several different mock drafts by each of our analysts, we decided to come together to do a collaborative mock draft. Listed below JT Olson, Logan Fredrickson, Brian Johannes and Dan Denby took turns making picks. This will lead to some different scenarios and even some players falling further than they should. But have fun and enjoy!

Notable Picks

2. San Francisco 49ers: Quinnen Williams DT Alabama

Logan Fredrickson: San Francisco finds themselves in an odd position owning the second overall pick. Their biggest need is an outside pass rusher and in this situation which saw Nick Bosa go first overall (a likely situation come April) the 49ers are left in the following situation: reach a little bit for the next best EDGE player or take the best player on their board… Here they go best player available in Quinnen Williams a player who is in the debate with Bosa for the best player in this draft. Williams would be a day one starter next to DeForrest Buckner forming a talented, young interior defensive line duo.

3. New York Jets: Rashan Gary DE Michigan

Brian Johannes: On the surface this may seem like an odd pick mainly because Josh Allen is still available. But one thing we need to think about is that NFL teams are going to like Gary a lot more than the internet media. Gary’s combination of size, speed, and athletic ability is rare and no matter how much you want to say teams are getting progressive, NFL teams still value size and athletic ability. Gary with all his talent is still an unfinished product and needs to improve his pass rushing repertoire whose ceiling could be sky high. Another factor playing into this pick is that the Jets are moving to the 4-3 under Gregg Williams and he may feel that Gary is a much better fit scheme wise than Josh Allen whose likely better suited playing in a two point stance. Combine his potential and scheme fit and this pick makes even more sense.

4. Oakland Raiders: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky

Dan Denby: After letting Khalil Mack go, the Raiders have been severely undermanned along the edge of their defensive front. The current roster is lacking a dynamic pass rushing talent who can produce 10+ sacks a year. Josh Allen can be that type of player for the Raiders going forward. A phenomenal athlete with the bend and flexibility to beat blockers round their outside shoulder, Allen has the potential to become a pro bowl pass rusher at the next level. Add in his rare ability to drop into coverage for an edge defender and you have a versatile piece who you can move around the defensive front and rush from different alignments. Allen would be a great building block for the Raiders defense

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jonah Williams OT Alabama

JT Olson: I’m not certain where Williams will play on the offensive line at the next level, but I know he will do it well. Williams was a primer left tackle in college and has all the skill to be very good there for the Bucs. However, there are some questions about his arm length and if that projects him as a guard and not a tackle. Either way it works for Tampa because they need help at both spots. So whether he becomes a franchise left tackle or an all pro guard like Zach Martin (who faced similar questions coming into the draft) the Bucs are getting a great player who fills a big need.

13. Miami Dolphins: Brian Burns DE Florida State

JT Olson: Miami is a team The is lost in limbo and lacks a real identity. With new head coach Brian Flores taking over, and him coming from a defensive background, it makes sense that he try to build this team around the defense. The Dolphins already have a talented secondary in place and a young pass rusher like Burns, who might be the best pure pass rusher in the draft, would only compliment that. This pick also provides Miami with a replacement for Cameron Wake who turns 38 this month.

18. Minnesota Vikings: Dalton Risner OT Kansas State

Logan Fredrickson: The major achilles heel for the Vikings last season was the play of their offensive line. They failed to consistently create running lanes for their running backs and could not stand up to opposing pass rushers when push came to shove. Multiple upgrades are needed and Minnesota take a huge step in fixing things by taking Dalton Risner out of Kansas State. The four-year starter plays with a nasty mean streak and is a real mauler in the running game while serving as a very competent pass protector as well. What could make him even more appealing to the Vikings is Risner’s versatility as he saw time at basically every position along the offensive line.

24. Oakland Raiders: Greedy Williams CB West Virginia

Brian Johannes: Having a top player fall further than they likely go always tends to happen when you do collaborative mock drafts like this. Yes Greedy Williams WILL go before the 24th pick and is likely a top 15 pick. So I know we are going to get heat for this pick, but let’s take a dive into how this happens. Two key teams are the Lions and Broncos. If both of those teams do pass on Greedy, he could be in for a bit of a fall. Whether it’s the talent of defensive lineman and both teams being linked to other teams make it very realistic that he falls. Then you get into the teens and based on team needs and other quality players teams could pass on him. Is Greedy falling to the Browns or Steelers that unrealistic? Some will argue yes and others will argue no. I would think the Steelers are his floor but like I previously said, stuff like this happens all the time when you have multiple people collaborating on a mock draft.

32. New England Patriots: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma

Dan Denby: In this situation the Pats win the Superbowl and get Kyler Murray… talk about the rich getting richer. I doubt Murray is available this late, but in our simulation he was and I had to pull the trigger on that action. Who knows how long Brady will continue playing for. My best bet is we will either see one more game from the goat or one more year. In either scenario, drafting Kyler makes a ton of sense. If Brady calls it a career after the Superbowl, the Patriots will have an electric playmaker at QB who they can build their offense around going forward. Murray would step in and be the guy right off the bat. If Brady plays another year, Kyler can sit and learn from greatest QB to ever do it. That time learning how to prepare, acclimatizing to the speed of the NFL game and absorbing the scheme would be invaluable for Kyler and he can take the reigns himself in year 2, similarly to Pat Mahomes this year.

  1. Bucs fans hate OLT D’n Smith; it will be interesting to see how the new regime views him after he was repeatedly defended by Koetter & Co..
    Thanks for the mocker.

  2. I really don’t think the Browns will be selecting a OG in the first round. DT/LB, maybe CB. I’m certain it will be on defense.
