2019 NFL Mock Draft | Post Combine

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 NFL Combine over it is the perfect time for a new mock. In this installment we see some changes at the top and how some players performances at the Combine affected their draft value. Enjoy version 9.0 of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft.

Notable Picks

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky

Normally in Todd Bowles’ defenses he hasn’t really had or acquired any true edge rushers and while his defenses were 3-4 based he ran a 4-2-5 look and blitzed a lot. But the Buccaneers have been active meeting with true edge rushers at the Combine. And while this may not signal a change in philosophy as a player like Allen can do so much. Allen is at his best when rushing the quarterback but has shown the ability to play the run well setting the edge while also dropping into coverage. If Kyler Murray does go number one overall it could lead to Allen falling a bit based on team fits and could really be an impact player for the Bucs new coaching staff.

9. Buffalo Bills: Jonah Williams OT Alabama

It’s clear this offseason the Bills have to build up the offense around Josh Allen. Whether that is adding weapons or building up the offense line, it needs to happen. And while DK Metcalf is very tempting to mock here because he would fit so well, I have a feeling the Bills would go in a different direction. I could very well be wrong though. Instead I think the Bills will look to build up the offense line instead by adding Jonah Williams. Williams would give this offensive line some flexibility as Williams could realistically play all five positions. If the Bills still want to have Dion Dawkins play left tackle they can leave him there and move Williams to right tackle or even inside. Otherwise the Bills could do the opposite and keep Williams at left tackle and move Dawkins inside where he could be even better. Regardless Williams gives the Bills an athletic offensive lineman who is a good run blocker.

11. Cincinnati Bengals: Devin Bush LB Michigan

Cincinnati is more than likely going to be moving on from Vontaze Burfict and will need some help in the middle of their defense. It is well documented that Mike Brown prefers to draft players early from Power Conferences, especially the Big 10. Not only does Devin Bush fill a need but fits what the Bengals prefer in their draft picks. Bush has produced at a high level for Michigan and then backed up his on field production with a tremendous showing at the NFL Combine. His ability to go sideline to sideline and still hit with authority would make him a great fit as the new leader of this defense.

17. Cleveland Browns: DK Metcalf WR Mississippi

While Metcalf could easily go much higher after an impressive Combine performance, he could easily still go in the middle of the draft based off of teams going hard after some of the defensive line talent. Metcalf is a very impressive talent and it wouldn’t shock me if he went in the top 10 or even in the top 5, but at this point he still needs to develop as a route runner and be more than just an explosive deep threat. Cleveland would be excited to see him available here as he could give the Browns what they were hoping Josh Gordon would be and open up the underneath for David Njoku and Jarvis Landry.

29. Green Bay Packers: Jachai Polite DE Florida

Before you @ me for having the Packers take two defensive ends with with their two first round picks let’s ask ourselves, who are the Packers top pass rushers? Exactly. Clay Matthews is at the end of his run while Nick Perry is a disappointment who is likely going to get cut this offseason. Green Bay has also showed they are willing to use multiple high picks on weaknesses as we saw them drafted two cornerbacks last year in Jaire Alexander and Joshua Jackson. Polite didn’t help himself out at the Combine by trashing teams for grilling him at the Combine while reports are he didn’t do well in interviews. This could push him down to the Packers who are one team that is rumored to really like him. By taking both Brian Burns and Jachai Polite the Packers get to explosive pass rushers that could be used both as a strongside linebacker or the weakside defensive end in Mike Pettine’s defense.

  1. Undersized OLB Florida State will have too many older Packer fans who follow the draft think of smaller FSU DE Jamal Reynolds taken at 10 years back, it didn’t work out. This will be ILB Devin White,Devin Bush,OLB Josh Allen, or OL Jonah Williams.1st an last prediction before after combine !

  2. I doubt Tampa Bay will take a D-lineman in rd. 1 two years in a row, & I REALLY love DT’s.As posited, I would think T Wms. or CB Murphy.

    • Shoot. I had the Raiders taking a different player with the 4th pick and then went I went to post the mock I switched it up without changing their later pick. I’ll fix it within the next day or to.

  3. Redskins love AL players and they need a safety more than a QB after having to cut Swearinger. A game manager with a backfield of Guice, AP and a LG plus a WR that can get separate will give them a competitive posture. They have enough selections in rounds 1-3 to accomplish that.

  4. Have read a report that the Broncos could have eyes on adding a veteran LB such as CJ Mosley, Danny Trevathan among a few others. Devin White I agree is a strong possibility at this point and I would be more than okay with him being the selection. The player I really hope to draft honestly is Dalton Risner with letting Paradis likely testing the FA market. He can play any position on the OL at a high level and he ran across the field to greet John Elway at the senior bowl to tell him personally he wants to be a Bronco.
    How strong do you feel the possibility is of this becoming a reality?? Is this a pipe dream I need to forget because it’s not likely?? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

    • I have heard the Bears could cut Trevathan and he could return to Denver and reunite with Fangio. It will be interesting to see if the Bears do cut him. They have two young LBers behind him. I could see them drafting Risner, but it wouldn’t be till the 2nd round. Their first down pick is too rich for Risner IMO.

    • I thought Ray Farmer wasn’t the GM anymore….just kidding. I hear you. WR isn’t their biggest need, but I thought that Metcalf was a good value and would help Mayfield.
