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. In version 11.0 of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft has been updated with the recent rumors while also placing a few prospects in different spots.

Notable Picks

3. New York Jets: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida

Before you crush me for this pick, think about it. The Jets just drafted Sam Darnold with the third pick in last years draft and signed Le’Veon Bell this offseason to big money and they need to protect and help their investments. While the pass rushers would be a better pick in my opinion, I could see the Jets making this move to improve their offensive line that has been a weak point the last several years. Taylor would be able to come in at right tackle giving them a powerful presence to go along with Keleche Osemele who they traded for earlier in the offseason.

10. Denver Broncos: TJ Hockenson TE Iowa

A quarterback is a possibility, but I honestly feel that the Broncos see themselves in a win now mode and with all the money they are paying Flacco they are not going to invest top 10 money in another quarterback. John Elway and company have spent plenty of time looking into tight ends and Flacco has had his best success in Baltimore having a good tight end to attack the middle of the field with. Hockenson is a good inline blocker which will help out Phillip Lindsay while also providing someone to stretch the seam while also getting separation underneath.

15. Washington Redskins: Drew Lock QB Missouri

Having Drew Lock go 15th to the Redskins isn’t a surprising pick, but what is going to draw your attention to this is that he went ahead of Dwayne Haskins. While Haskins is my top rated quarterback and I feel he has the potential to be a franchise quarterback I wouldn’t be shocked if he is the third or even fourth quarterback taken. That was echoed during the owners meetings where Redskins head coach Jay Gruden mentioned that Haskins may not be ready to start year one while also saying that Lock is ready to go. Despite trading for Case Keenum, the Redskins need a starting quarterback bad and could look to Lock to come in and win the job with Keenum as the backup plan.

21. Seattle Seahawks: Noah Fant TE Iowa

Seattle loves to draft elite athletes and Fant finished in the 94th percentile in the SPARQ athletic testing which the Seahawks have been known to use in their player evaluation. Fant also gives the Seahawks a playmaker at tight end, something they lacked this past year without Jimmy Graham. Seattle has quality receivers in Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin but they lack the big contested catcher at the position. Fant can be used out wide, in the slot or inline to give Russell Wilson someone to command the middle of the field and provide a safety blanket to dump the ball to.

25. Philadelphia Eagles: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson S Florida

Without many needs the Eagles could go in a variety of different directions with this pick and could look to find a future starter. While Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McCloud are already set as starters, Jenkins is on the wrong side of 30 and McCloud is in the final  year of his contract. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is best suited as a safety in the NFL, but has experience playing as a slot cornerback which should help his case as he can come in and compete for the nickel or dime cornerback position as a rookie before possibly taking over at safety in year two.

26. Indianapolis Colts: Jeffery Simmons DT Mississippi State

Where Jeffery Simmons goes in the 2019 NFL Draft will be interesting. Based off his game tape he has the makings of a sure fire top 10 pick who can dominate the run game and provide a pass rushing threat. But when you get to the video tape of him punching a woman and a torn ACL during his draft prep and it raises some major questions of how far will he fall. Simmons lasting until the second round is not out of the question, but a team like the Colts who want to add some more elite prospects to their team could look at Simmons here and feel like taking a chance. Simmons brings baggage and will need an owner to take a chance on him and Jim Irsay is one guy who tends to walk to the beat of his own drum.

32. New England Patriots: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State

The retirement of Rob Gronkowski opens up a huge void in the Patriots offense as they really lack someone who can go up and make contested catches. While it would be nice for one of the Iowa tight ends to be available here, they are both more than likely gone. Irv Smith Jr. could be a possibility, but is he worth the 32nd pick? Instead of waiting till one of their two late second round picks the Patriots could go another route. N’Keal Harry isn’t a tight end, but he did excel at Arizona State out of the slot and is tremendous at the catch point.

  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.

      • Would love it if Raiders draft turned out this way. Q. Williams at 4 I could only hope, Lock & Jacobs an offense to grow together. Now trade Carr to Miami, Washington or someone in need for a high pick or 2. Find a edge rusher & a middle linebacker.

  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.

  5. The lions are not taking Greedy Williams in any scenario. He isn’t a tackler which is what Matty P Likes and is now projected to be a late first round pick. He is diffenitly not going to be taken in front of Sweat, Bush, Williams, Oliver or Burns. In your draft the way it lays out Sweat is the pick for sure no doubt about it.

    • I can agree with that. My thought process was they still need a starting CB. I know Greedy is being projected now as a later first round pick, but at his size and speed those type of prospects tend to go in the top 10. So I guess I was trying to pigeon hole him in there at that version. Like you said it probably doesn’t happen. I truly appreciate the feedback.
