With the NFL Scouting Combine about to start there is no better time to roll out my first mock draft for 2019. Here’s how I see the first round going at this stage.
NFL COMBINE: Top five QBs | RBs | WR/TEs | OL | Breaking down the Power Five conferences
1. ARIZONA CARDINALS
DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State – Even coming off an injury he’s clearly the best overall prospect in the draft until someone proves otherwise.
2. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
DE Josh Allen, Kentucky – Allen can do so much from so many angles he will be hard to pass up here.
3. NEW YORK JETS
DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama – Williams is a dynamic inside pass rusher at the NFL level, something every team covets.
4. OAKLAND RAIDERS
DE Rashan Gary, Michigan – He can play inside or outside at the NFL level and is an athletic freak.
5. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson – They are tempted at running back, but this defensive line class is too talented to pass on.
6. NEW YORK GIANTS
QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State – This one appears to be easy as the Giants need a quarterback and Haskins is the best one in the draft.
7. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma – The Dolphins were hoping he would fall to them, but the need for a quarterback is big in Jacksonville.
8. DETROIT LIONS
TE TJ Hockenson, Iowa – An edge rusher would be an easy take here as well, but Hockenson is special and the Lions love his versatility.
9. BUFFALO BILLS
DT Christian Wilkins, Clemson – Yet another defensive lineman is off the board and Wilkins has that pass rushing ability needed at the position.
10. DENVER BRONCOS
QB Drew Lock, Missouri – This is one of those years where teams will take a chance at quarterbacks high in the draft, and Lock is a good risk.
11. CINCINNATI BENGALS
OT Jonah Williams, Alabama – There is quite a debate about who the top tackle is in the draft and I think Williams is the guy.
12. GREEN BAY PACKERS
DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State – Teams are infatuated with his athleticism and he can be a big-time hybrid guy for the Packers.
13. MIAMI DOLPHINS
CB Greedy Williams, LSU – The Dolphins want a quarterback badly, so they could trade up. But if they don’t they’ll be happy with the best corner in the draft.
14. ATLANTA FALCONS
OT Jawaan Taylor, Florida – Taylor is coveted by many teams and won’t slide past the Falcons.
15. WASHINGTON REDSKINS
QB Daniel Jones, Duke – The Skins don’t know who their quarterback of the future is, so they take Jones to be the guy.
16. CAROLINA PANTHERS
OT Greg Little, Ole Miss – There are plenty of tackle options here, but Little is the most athletic.
17. CLEVELAND BROWNS
LB Devin White, LSU – This is a perfect fit for the Browns.
18. MINNESOTA VIKINGS
OT Cody Ford, Oklahoma – The Vikings need some help up front, and Ford can provide it.
19. TENNESSEE TITANS
WR DK Metcalf, Ole Miss – The Titans add more size to the wide receiver position.
20. PITTSBURGH STEELERS
WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma – The Steelers have to replace Antonio Brown with someone and Marquise Brown is a great slot receiver.
21. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
DT Ed Oliver, Houston – Seattle is thrilled Oliver has dropped this far.
22. BALTIMORE RAVENS
WR N’Keal Harry, Arizona State – They need more weapons for Lamar Jackson and Harry is a great value here.
23. HOUSTON TEXANS
OT Andre Dillard, Washington State – The Texans need to protect the franchise in DeShaun Watson and invest up front.
24. OAKLAND RAIDERS
CB Deandre Baker, Georgia – The need is big at cornerback, and Baker is a great value here.
25. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama – The Eagles never expected the top RB in the draft to fall to them this far.
26. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS
WR Kelvin Harmon, NC State – Harmon fills a key position for the Colts and gives Andrew Luck another big-time target.
27. OAKLAND RAIDERS
TE Noah Fant, Iowa – The second Iowa tight end to go in Round One? Yep, the duo is that good.
28. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS
LB Mack Wilson, Alabama – Wilson is a big hitter and can cover a lot of ground for an emerging defense.
29. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
CB Byron Murphy, Washington – Murphy is an elite cover corner and will help the secondary immediately.
30. GREEN BAY PACKERS
DT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson – A big run plugger with Lawrence’s athleticism this late in Round One? The Packers would love it.
31. LOS ANGELES RAMS
S Nasir Adderly, Delaware – A small-school prospect who has big-time skills.
32. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
TE Irv Smith, Alabama – The Patriots have to replace Rob Gronkowski, and Smith is a very good athlete at the position.
