2019 NFL Mock Draft

The staple of NFL Draft coverage is the Mock Draft and it’s the reason that lead to me diving into this part of my life. The reason for it’s popularity is everybody either wants to see who their favorite team could be taking, where they’re favorite college football players could go, or where the top prospects could land. This obsession has also lead me to being ranked as one of the most accurate mock drafters over the past five years. Either way you look at it, it’s a fun way to look ahead to the next NFL Draft. With the college football regular season over and the NFL season nearing it’s end of the regular season the draft order is starting to come together. With all of that it’s a great time for version 4.0 of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft.

Notable Picks

2.oakland-raiders-logoOakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams DT Alabama

Coming into the season it looked as if Ed Oliver was locked into being the first defensive tackle taken and nobody really knew who Quinnen Williams was. Fast forward to today and Oliver’s stock is down a bit and Quinnen Williams has dominated college football. While I still believe Oliver is a better prospect, his lack of size is going to cause teams to pass on him early similar to the way they did Aaron Donald. It also doesn’t help that Qunnin Williams at 6’4 300lbs is wrecking SEC offensive lines. Williams can be paired up next to Maurice Hurst and give the Raiders to stud defensive tackles to anchor the defensive line and help take pressure off their edge defenders who have struggled to get pressure this season.

 

7. tampa-bay-buccaneers-logoTampa Bay Buccaneers: Deionte Thompson S Alabama

It’s almost a forgone conclusion that head coach Dirk Koetter, general manager Jason Licht and quarterback Jameis Winston will all be gone. Who the Bucs hire is still a mystery but so is the quarterback situation. Drafting a quarterback here would be great, but in this situation both Justin Herbert and Dwayne Haskins are gone. Do they reach for Drew Lock or a Will Grier? There is still plenty of time, but this situation doesn’t look promising. So instead of reaching for a quarterback the Bucs look to address their secondary and bring one of if not the best safety prospect we’ve seen in years. Deionte Thompson has done nothing be produce at a high level since he was inserted into the starting lineup. He shows great range and ball skills playing back in single high safety, can match up man to man and is willing to come down and make tackles in the run game.

 

15. miami-dolphins-logo Miami Dolphins: Drew Lock QB Missouri

Love him or hate him, it looks as if Drew Lock is going to be taken in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft largely due to his physical traits. He’s big, not a bad athlete, and has a cannon for an arm. As even though the NFL has changed and those traits have proven to not always translate to the NFL, these guys continue to get drafted high. Lock has struggled against the best competition in the SEC but cleaned up against inferior talent. Lock has been better this year when his top target Emmanuel Hall has been back, which means he’ll need weapons around him to be successful in the NFL. With another injury filled year from Ryan Tannehill the Dolphins have to be looking to the future and they could pull the trigger on Lock and hope that Adam Gase or another coach can develop him into a good starter.

 

18.Indianapolis Colts: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State

The Colts were one of the teams that I had pegged to be contending for the first overall pick but instead Andrew Luck has returned to his former self and their young players have really developed faster than anticipated. With the offensive line set the Colts could look to find a playmaker for Andrew Luck and take some of the pressure off TY Hilton. N’Keal Harry isn’t going to wow you with his 40 time and may not be great at separating from NFL defensive backs, but he has a great catching radius, can win contested catches and will make plays with the ball in his hands. Pairing him with TY Hilton can give the Colts two quality receivers once again and allow them to compliment each other.

22. baltimore-ravens-logo Baltimore Ravens: DK Metcalf WR Mississippi

It’s now time to start building the Ravens offense around Lamar Jackson and one way they can do that is to give him weapons that can mask some of his flaws. Jackson has a strong arm but is never going to be a pin point accurate thrower. So getting him a receiver like DK Metcalf who has the speed to make plays down the field and has shown the ability to win at the catch point and adjust to the ball in the air. While Metcalf may never be the elite route runner that allows him to create separation, he’ll do enough to help out Jackson and evolve this offense to better fit Jackson’s skill set.
