2019 NFL Mock Draft 6-14-18

It’s version 1.0 of our 2019 NFL mock draft. The order is completely randomized at this point. Don’t read anything more into the order than that. The 2018 NFL Draft has not been taken into account, as it obviously has not transpired yet! We did not figure our 2018 NFL mock draft selections into this mock either, as that’s kind of overkill- engaging in that kind of behavior.

However, if you want to see the 2018 mock, go to this link. Team needs were sometimes, but mostly, not taken into account, as it’s still absurdly early for a 2019 mock draft in the truest sense. Really, it’s more of a glorified prospect list at this point, to be honest. Have issues with the mock draft picks? Of course you do! Someone always does- have at it in the comments section. Just keep it classy and professional! Enjoy!

1. Cleveland, Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

We really believe the Brownies are on the right path time; honestly we do. So we don’t really think they’ll be drafting #1 overall again. However, it’s only natural/habit/reflex to place the Browns in the top slot every single time you do your first mock draft in a given year.

With his unreal ability to get into opposing backfields, Oliver is perhaps the most can’t miss prospect of this class Part 1

2. Baltimore, Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

Perhaps the most can’t miss prospect of this class Part 2. While 2018 was a flashier draft with a lot of high profile QB prospects, 2019 will be more pragmatic and dry, with linemen dominating the top of the heap.

3. Chicago Bears, Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State

Bosa is a stud just like his brother; he might end up being even better given his elite skill set. In the 2010s Ohio State has become a true destination for NFL caliber DLs, and quite a few now have gone on to become very high draft picks recently.

4. New York Jets, Shea Patterson, QB, Michigan (transfer from Mississippi)

Jim Harbaugh was obviously a very accomplished quarterback on both the collegiate and professional level. However, ironically, the QB play under his regime at Michigan has been the weakest link of the program. That will change as he has such a talented and pro ready transfer coming in.

The long, drawn out, extremely tedious eligibility saga of Patterson is now over! Michigan fans can rejoice because they now have their blue chip prospect officially cleared to play this fall. And we no longer have to hear anything more about tedious paper pushing corporatespeak about waiver requests and other dull things in this vein. Go here for more on Patterson.

5. Arizona, Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern

It will be fascinating to see how well he responds to the serious injury that he suffered in what was essentially an exhibition (Music City Bowl win over Kentucky) game to finish out 2017. He inherited the job at NU from Trevor Siemian, who established himself as Denver’s QB1 for a little while…eventually that didn’t work out.

However, Thorson comes from the same system, while being bigger and faster. He has the size, speed, measurables and dual threat ability that NFL scouts crave. We’ve sized up his NFL Draft stock in detail quite a bit already. Go here for that link.

6. New Orleans, Christian Wilkins, DE, Clemson

Was perhaps ready to jump in 2018, but since he stayed in school longer, he’ll just be all the more special next spring when he comes out. His ability to play any position on the DL will make his stock rise even higher.

7. Denver, Rashan Gary, DE/DT, Michigan

One of the most blue chip recruits Harbaugh landed, we all knew Gary had pro potential since high school, given his off-the-charts athleticism.

8. Tampa Bay, Bryce Love, RB, Stanford

Love has an excellent mix of positive attributes, and he’s a threat to score every time he touches the ball. If this guy played on the east coast, he’d be Heisman trophy front-runner. Well, he’ll get his chance to get noticed and get paid now.

9. New York Giants, Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson

Definitely a top 10, maybe even a top 5 talent for whatever team takes him. He’s stellar at both stuffing the run and rushing the passer. He’s just a total monster of a player.

10. Miami, Trey Adams, OT, Washington

Had to come back for another year, due to his ACL tear, and ironically that could end up being a blessing in disguise; provided he fully recovers.

11. San Francisco, A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss

A big time athlete who could be the first flanker off the boards next year.

12. Indianapolis, Connor McGovern, G, Penn State

Saquon Barkley gets all the accolades, and his payday this year. One of the major lane providers for Barkley, McGovern gets his payday next year.

13. Detroit, Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

No doubt scrimmaging against a blue chipper like Denzel Ward everyday in practice will help prep this guy for the next level.

12. Oakland, David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin

Badgers have been an NFL OL factory for quite some time, and the tradition continues.

13. Washington, Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

Has a first round skill set, according to some scouts.

16. L.A. Chargers, Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

They have got to think about drafting Philip Rivers’ successor some time, as he is 36.

17. Tennessee, Andraez (Greedy) Williams, CB, LSU

At 6-foot-2, 182 pounds Williams has the length which is ideal for the NFL. He’s also got speed for days to boot.

18. Kansas City, Collin Johnson, WR, Texas

19. Buffalo, Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn

20. Dallas, Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma

21. Cincinnnati, N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State

22. L.A. Rams, Jerry Tillery, DL, Notre Dame

Tillery moved from nose tackle to the 3-technique this season, where he’ll play under his third D Coordinator in the last three season. Go here for more on Tillery.

23. Carolina, Kaden Smith, TE, Stanford

25. Seattle, Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

The Tigers are showing you why they have been right up there with Bama as the elite program of the past few years, this 2019 NFL mock draft is loaded with Clemson players.

26. Green Bay, Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama

26. Pittsburgh, Cameron Smith, LB, USC

We’re surprised to see only have one Trojan in our mock draft right now, as USC is #1 all time for players drafted by a single school.

27. Philadelphia, Mark Gilbert, CB, Duke

28. Houston, Jonah Williams, T, Alabama

29. Minnesota, Drue Tranquill, LB, Notre Dame

Tranquill, who is returned for his fifth season at ND, will be playing his third position this fall under his third defensive coordinator. Tranquill started out as a strong safety under Brian VanGorder, moved to rover LB for a season under Mike Elko, and now plays Buck LB under Clark Lea. Go here for more on Tranquill.

30. Jacksonville, Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

31. Atlanta, Ahmmon Richards, WR, Miami

32. New England, Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

They have got to think about drafting Tom Brady’ successor some time, as he is 40.
