2019 NFL Mock Draft

2019 NFL Mock Draft – PART ONE

With the 2019 NFL draft less than a month away, BGO Sports has created a mock draft for the first 12 picks, complete with plenty of bold predictions and juicy speculations.

Considering free agency is all but finished and the dust has finally settled after some blockbuster trades, we have a pretty good idea of each team’s needs entering the draft.

1.) Arizona Cardinals

KYLER MURRAY, QB, Oklahoma

It’s a bad look to abandon ship on a top 10 pick after only a year in the NFL but the Cardinals are under Kliff Kingsbury’s rule now. We can expect the new coach to bring the Air Raid offense to Glendale and Josh Rosen isn’t exactly a great fit for the QB-designed runs Kingsbury utilized at Texas Tech. He can form the offense around Kyler Murray without limitations.

 

2.) San Francisco 49ers

NICK BOSA, DE, Ohio State

 

Nick Bosa is the best pass-rusher in the draft and the best available player in the 2019 Draft. Assuming GM John Lynch doesn’t trade down, Bosa would instantly improve this 49ers team.

 

3.) New York Jets

JOSH ALLEN, DE/OLB, Kentucky

The Jets’ new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams says that he plans to stick with a 3-4. Considering Josh Allen is an extremely effective edge rusher, he would fill a need in the Jets’ defense. We would love to see GM Mike Maccagnan pair Allen up with another former Kentucky Wildcat, Avery Williamson.

 

4.) Oakland Raiders

QUINNEN WILLIAMS, DT, Alabama

 

Despite sharing a pancake breakfast with the 49ers, Williams will likely be scooped up by the Raiders should he fall out of the top 3. The first-team All-American posted 71 tackles and eight sacks for the Crimson Tide and Oakland needs a dominating defender with the ability to take over games.

 

5.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DEVIN WHITE, LB, LSU

 

With veteran linebacker Kwon Alexander out of the picture, the Tampa Bay will adjust its focus to LSU inside linebacker Devin White. He’s a top-tier athlete with blazing speed and blew scouts away at the combine.

 

6.) New York Giants

DWAYNE HASKINS, QB, Ohio State

Eli is going to pass the torch and the Giants seem to believe Dwayne Haskins is right for the job. GM Dave Gettleman will likely set up The Kansas City Model and have Haskins sit behind Manning. While Haskins should not be compared to Patrick Mahomes, he’s durable and prepared to improve weaknesses in his game while learning from Eli.

 

7.) Jacksonville Jaguars

RASHAN GARY, DL, Michigan

 

Although Gary does not have as much hype surrounding him as fellow edge rushers like Bosa and Allen, he has plenty of potential. At number 7, he’s the best available edge in the draft class.

 

8.) Detroit Lions

ED OLIVER, DT, Houston

 

What Ed Oliver lacks in NFL size, he makes up for with his superior athleticism. Explosive and agile, Oliver plays tough and plays instinctively. The Lions need players on the d-line to create pressure and Oliver is up for the task.

 

9.) Buffalo Bills

JAWAAN TAYLOR, OT, Florida

Taylor played on the right side at Florida but he’s comfortable playing either right or left in the NFL. His game needs to be tightened up but Taylor is a powerful run blocker that can make an instant impact in the NFL.

 

10.) Denver Broncos

DEVIN BUSH, LB, Michigan

 

Many have the Broncos taking a quarterback at number 10, but after trading for Joe Flacco in the offseason, it doesn’t seem likely Denver will pass up a quick linebacker who can serve as an immediate upgrade to the position.

 

11.) Cincinnati Bengals

TJ HOCKENSON, TE, Iowa

Hockenson is a great blocker and excellent route-runner. He’ll need to fill out with additional muscle mass to be effective in the NFL, but many scouts consider him as the most complete tight end in the draft.

 

12.) Green Bay Packers

NOAH FANT, TE, Iowa

 

Iowa seems to have a knack for developing exceptional tight ends and Noah Fant is no exception. His greatest asset is his ability to gain separation and hit big plays. Aaron Rodgers would love to have Fant as an offensive option.
