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 only the College Football National Championship left and the NFL Playoffs about the start, we have the first twenty picks of the 2019 NFL Draft set. With all of that it’s a great time for version 6.0 of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft.

Notable Picks

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Greedy Williams CB LSU

With a new coaching staff in Tampa it really changes up a lot as the Bucs will have a new defensive scheme and value players different than the previous coaching staff. While taking an offensive tackle like Jonah Williams is a possibility but getting a possible lockdown cornerback fills a far bigger need. Where ever Todd Bowles has gone as a heach coach or defensive coordinator he’s had a shut down guy. Williams has the size and movement skills that would allow him to match up to any receiver while allowing Carlton Davis and Vernon Hargreaves into more natural roles.

13. Miami Dolphins – Cody Ford OT Oklahoma

It was reported this week by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the Dolphins would be passing on a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft and instead focusing on building up both the offensive and defensive lines. Ford was a part time starter at left guard for the Sooners before sliding out to right tackle this year and dominating defensive ends. The Dolphins could use Ford to slide back inside to guard to fill a gaping hole that has plagued this team for years or they could have him compete with Ju’Wuan James who seems like they’ve wanted to move on from for some time.

15. Washington Redskins – Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma

With Kyler Murray declaring for the NFL Draft it puts him one step closer to actually being drafted. While I am huge fan of Murray’s traits and feel that he can be a successful quarterback in the NFL, his height and concerns about going to baseball are going to scare some teams off. This likely means he’s not the first, second or possibly third quarterback taken and could realistically not go in the first round. That being said he is a tremendous weapon and a team like the Redskins who desperately need a quarterback could take a shot on him.

23. Houston Texans – Andre Dillard OT Washington State

For all the success that the Texans have had the past two years with Deshaun Watson, it is clear that they need to do a better job of protecting him. And while I’m not ready to say Julie’n Davenport isn’t good, the Texans could stand to upgrade and have him compete on the right side. Andre Dillard doesn’t get the same attention as other tackle prospects in this class, but that needs to change. Dillard thrives in pass blocking using quick lateral agility and light feet to mirror pass rushers. Dillard is still a work in progress when it comes to run blocker but is adequate enough and should thrive in the Texans system.

30. Kansas City Chiefs – Oshane Ximines DE Old Dominion

With Dee Ford entering free agency it’s unlikely that the Chiefs will franchise tag him and likely could lose him to a big money contract with another team. This means the Chiefs will need to replenish their pass rushing stockpile and look for someone in the draft. Luckily the 2019 draft class has plenty of top end pass rushers and the Chiefs should be able to have one of them slide down to them here. Oshane Ximines isn’t a player most fans know about, but through the predraft process his stock will surely rise. Ximinies has good size at 6’4 255lbs but what stands out the most about his game is his ability to change directions fluidly. Andy Reid isn’t afraid to draft players from small schools while Ximines is the perfect replacement to Dee Ford.

  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.
