With the NFL Draft set to kick off Thursday night with Round One, National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell takes his last chance at predicting where players will go with this mock draft.

1. Arizona Cardinals 

QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma There has been a lot of talk about Murray and whether he will go No. 1 overall. Despite recent reports that he won’t be the guy for new coach Kliff Kingsbury I’m still projecting him here. No clue what the Cards will do with Josh Rosen.

2. San Francisco 49ers 

DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State If Bosa slips past the Cardinals there is no way the 49ers will pass on the player many think is the best in the draft.

3. New York Jets 

DE Josh Allen, Kentucky One of the two elite defensive tackles will also be worth considering, but what Allen can do in space is too tempting.

4. Oakland Raiders 

DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama Williams and Ed Oliver are the two elite defensive tackles at the top of the draft, and the Raiders are enamored with Williams, who has a little more length.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

LB Devin White, LSU Defensive help is needed and White is the best linebacker in the draft and a special talent.

6. New York Giants 

QB Daniel Jones, Duke The first stunner of the draft? Many felt Dwayne Haskins would be the guy, but the Giants like Jones a lot and see more upside. They need to take a quarterback here. It’s a must.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

OT Jawaan Taylor, Florida The Jags will be tempted to take Oliver or a defensive player, but they need a tackle and Taylor - a local - is the guy.

8. Detroit Lions 

DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State Despite the heart condition, there’s no way Sweat slides beyond the Lions, who would love to see him off the edge.

9. Buffalo Bills 

OT Jonah Williams, Alabama Some consider Williams a guard, but to me he’s an elite tackle even if it’s on the right side. The Bills need tackle help.

10. Denver Broncos 

QB Drew Lock, Missouri Haskins' slide continues as the Broncos - who need a quarterback badly - choose Lock, who has excellent upside.

11. Cincinnati Bengals 

QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State What? Is Andy Dalton on the outs? The Bengals wanted to go defense, but they never expected Haskins to be available. This could also be another team trading up for Haskins.

12. Green Bay Packers 

DT Ed Oliver, Houston The Packers expected to land on Rashan Gary or Devin Bush here, but they can’t pass on Oliver, who was expected to be long gone.

13. Miami Dolphins 

LB Devin Bush, Michigan If the Dolphins don’t trade up they’ll be happy to take the athletic Bush this late in the draft.

14. Atlanta Falcons 

DT Christian Wilkins, Clemson The Falcons want help on the defensive or offensive line and can’t pass on Wilkins, who is very versatile.

15. Washington Redskins 

DE Brian Burns, Florida State Rashan Gary is a possibility here as well, but the Redskins want a speedy edge rusher and Burns' stock is rising.

16. Carolina Panthers 

OT Andre Dillard, Washington State They need help up front protecting Cam Newton and Dillard has great feet and athleticism.

17. New York Giants 

DT Rashan Gary, Michigan The Giants were tempted to wait until this pick to land their quarterback, but didn’t want to miss on Jones. Now they can take a chance on Gary, whose upside is as high as anyone in the draft.

18. Minnesota Vikings 

OC Garrett Bradbury, NC State Move Pat Elfein to guard and bring in the best center in the draft to shore up the middle of the offensive line.

19. Tennessee Titans

OG Chris Lindstrom, Boston College Some have him as a second-rounder, but the Titans need offensive line help and he’s a nasty, interior lineman who will also help the run game.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers

CB Greedy Williams, LSU There is no way the Steelers thought Williams would slide this far, so they will jump on him.

21. Seattle Seahawks

DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson The Seahawks have many needs, and an edge rusher is one of them and this draft is loaded with talent. In any other year Ferrell goes top 10.

22. Baltimore Ravens 

WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma The Ravens need weapons for Lamar Jackson and Brown will stretch the field and be very effective in the current offense.

23. Houston Texans 

OT Cody Ford, Oklahoma The offensive line is a huge position of need and Ford can play tackle or guard.

24. Oakland Raiders 

TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa The Raiders have three picks, so they can address the tight end need here and pick between teammates Hockenson and Noah Fant.

25. Philadelphia Eagles 

RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama It’s not a great running back draft, but Jacobs could be special and is a value add this late.

26. Indianapolis Colts 

DT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson Indy needs interior help on defense and Lawrence is a steal this late.

27. Oakland Raiders 

CB Deandre Baker, Georgia The Raiders need corner help and Baker sliding this far is a surprise.

28. Los Angeles Chargers 

CB Byron Murphy, Washington Some think he’s the best pure corner in the draft and the Chargers need help on the outside.

29. Seattle Seahawks

WR AJ Brown, Ole Miss Seahawks need help everywhere, and a dominant slot receiver like Brown is a big pickup.

30. Green Bay Packers

OT Dalton Risner, Kansas State Green Bay needs an offensive lineman and Risner can work outside or inside - and he is nasty.

31. Los Angeles Rams 

DT Jeffery Simmons, Mississippi State The Rams add a huge tackle who is athletic enough to play end in situations to protect Aaron Donald from more and more double teams.

32. New England Patriots 

CB Rock Ya-Sin, Temple The Pats like taking locals and Ya-Sin was dominant in his one season at Temple. Philly is local enough for the Patriots.
