The Combine is done, pro days are over, scouts have handed in their reports. It is now time for the 2019 NFL draft. Iso Joe puts all of his predictions on paper in Bash Brothers Media first Mock Draft.
No. 1 New York Giants (From Arizona Cardinals)
Kyler Murray, QB
The Giants have consistently said that they are not interested in a quarterback. Wonderful smokescreen Gettleman. The Giants are one of the few teams that have the draft capital to make this happen. The Giants end up with the top QB on the board in Kyler Murray and start building for the future post Eli Manning.
No. 2 San Fransisco 49ers
Nick Bosa, Edge
With current defensive tackles Solomon Thomas and Deforest Buckner on the inside of their defensive line, taking defensive tackle Quinnen Williams would be a mistake. The 49ers have an easy decision here grabbing Nick Bosa and solidifying their defensive line.
No. 3 New York Jets
Quinnen Williams, DT
Quinnen Williams is a generational talent. His ceiling could be as high as a player like Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. If you have a chance for a player like this you should be jumping at the pick. The Jets are known for their dominant defensive lines and Williams fits the Jets perfectly.
No. 4 Oakland Raiders
Ed Oliver, DT
The Raiders had 13.0 sacks in total, as a team, last year. Pass rush help is exactly what they need. Oliver can move all over the defensive line and has incredible pass rush ability. It’s an easy pick for them as they get another piece to their young defense.
No. 5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Devin White, LB
With the departure of Kwon Alexander, the Buccs need a new speedy linebacker for their defense. They can seamlessly replace Alexander with Devin White.
No. 6 Arizona Cardinals (From Giants)
Josh Allen, Edge
The Cardinals move back and still end up with the second best pass rusher in the draft. Josh Allen falls perfectly into their lap.
No. 7 Jacksonville Jaguars
Jawaan Taylor, OT
The Jaguars need help on the offensive line and need to keep Nick Foles upright. They get the best tackle in the draft.
No. 8 Detroit Lions
Rashan Gary, Edge
The Lions could use some help rushing the passer. While I have Sweat over Gary I believe Sweat’s heart condition will lead to a draft day fall. Gary’s lack of production scares me but not Detroit as they hope to find an answer at the edge position.
No. 9 Buffalo Bills
D.K. Metcalf, WR
While in my draft series the Bills were just left off my list, I do see them as a Metcalf landing spot. If the draft falls the way I have it the Bills will grab the best receiver available for Josh Allen to throw to.
No. 10 Denver Broncos
Dwayne Haskins, QB
It’s very possible that the Broncos will need to trade up to get Haskins but here I have him falling nicely into their lap. While Elway seems to be in love with Drew Lock I think his scouts will convince him Haskins is the better player.
No. 11 Cincinnati Bengals
Devin Bush, LB
Vontaze Burfict is gone and the Bengals are going to be looking to replace him. Devin Bush is easily the best linebacker left on the board and he gets snatched up by the Bengals.
No. 12 Green Bay Packers
Jonah Williams, OG
Aaron Rodgers has been injured two seasons in a row now. While he didn’t miss time last year it should be clear that protecting their star is priority number one. Jonah Williams is the best guard available at a position of need, easy pick.
No. 13 Miami Dolphins
Brian Burns, Edge
The Dolphins need help on the defensive line as they begin their rebuild. They look to replace Robert Quinn and Cameron Wake. They find their replacement in Brian Burns, the best edge player on the board.
No. 14 Atlanta Falcons
Clelin Ferrell, Edge
The Falcons look to get some help on the edge and get a pass rusher that can change the tone of the game. They find their guy in Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell.
No. 15 Washington Redskins
Drew Lock, QB
The Redskins know that they don’t have the future at QB on their roster right now. They get one of the top prospects who can also sit and learn from Case Keenum and Alex Smith if need be.
No. 16 Carolina Panthers
Andre Dillard, OT
In case you did not get it yet I like to protect my quarterbacks. Newton is coming off of shoulder surgery and the last thing the Panthers want is for him to get rocked. They pick up one of the best tackles in the draft to shore up the offensive line.
No. 17 New York Giants
Montez Sweat, Edge
After acquiring their QB of the future, the Giants focus on the defensive side of things. They stop Sweat’s fall and recognize his talent. They snatch up the Mississippi State star and get a game-changing edge rusher to replace Oliver Vernon.
No. 18 Minnesota Vikings
Cody Ford, OG
Turns out signing star quarterback Kirk Cousins to a massive contract does not solve your offensive line issues. Cody Ford is a phenomenal guard and will come in to be a day one starter on the Vikings O-line.
No. 19 Tennessee Titans
Christian Wilkins, Edge
The Titans could use some extra help on the defensive line. They get a guy to pair with Jurrell Casey and add to an already stout interior defensive line.
No. 20 Pittsburgh Steelers
Greedy Williams, CB
The Steelers grab a corner to help out a struggling secondary. They pick a kid from ‘DBU’ who fits in their man coverage schemes perfectly. The Steelers may have found a draft-day gem here.
No. 21 Seattle Seahawks
Jeffery Simmons, DT
The Seahawks end up with a star in the back end of the first round. The Seahawks have never been shy about taking players with character concerns and that does not stop here. The Seahawks snag one of the best players in the draft.
No. 22 Baltimore Ravens
Marquise Brown, WR
On paper, the Ravens have one of the worst receiving corps in the league. Since Metcalf, is gone they go with a speedster in Brown to pair with Lamar Jackson.
No. 23 Houston Texans
Dalton Risner, OT
Deshaun Watson was the most sacked QB in the NFL last year. Simply put the Texans should be going for the best offensive lineman left on the board. In this case, it’s Dalton Risner.
No. 24 Oakland Raiders
T.J. Hockenson, TE
How Hockenson falls this far is probably a shock to the Raiders front office. They get the best tight end in the draft and grab a target for Derek Carr. Hockenson is also the best blocking tight end prospect in a while which will help in the run game.
No. 25 Philidelphia Eagles
Byron Murphy, CB
The Eagles secondary struggled all of last year. While some might point to injuries part of it is a lack of talent. Byron Murphy is possibly the best all-around corner in the draft and can become the Eagles new number one guy.
No. 26 Indianapolis Colts
Jerry Tillery, DT
Colts general manager Chris Ballard believes in building from the trenches outwards. He has stressed the need to improve the Colts defensive line. Tillery is the best player on the board to help Ballard build the trenches.
No. 27 Oakland Raiders
Deandre Baker, CB
Baker left something to be desired at the Combine. However, he is still my number three corner behind Greedy and Byron Murphy. The Raiders need secondary help and Baker is one of the best players available on the board. No brainer.
No. 28 Los Angeles Chargers
Dexter Lawrence, DT
The Chargers don’t have many holes on this team but could use a big boy in the middle to help take double teams away from Joey Bosa. Adding Lawrence will help this Chargers team dominate in run stopping and open things up for their edge rushers to go get the quarterback.
No. 29 Seattle Seahawks
Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S
The Seahawks are slowly but surely replacing the Legion of Boom. CGJ is one of the best safeties who has the ability to play in the slot as well as a deep range coverage safety. He fits the Seahawks scheme well and should be an easy pick for Pete Carrol.
No. 30 Green Bay Packers
Noah Fant, TE
The Packers want to surround Aaron Rodgers with as many weapons as possible. They have a hole at tight end and Noah Fant is a special player. They use their second pick to get the best TE on the board.
No. 31 Los Angeles Rams
Garett Bradbury, C
The Rams don’t have many weaknesses but can help bolster their offensive line by picking up the best Center in the draft.
No. 32 New England Patriots
Darnell Savage, S
The Patriots generally pick up the player that you least expect. Naturally, their top needs are TE and WR so it only makes sense that they would go for Savage at safety. Savage is almost an exact mold of Devin McCourty and I believe Bill Belichick will not pass up the opportunity to draft him.
Teams without a first round pick:
No. 49 Cleveland Browns: Johnathan Abram
No. 58 Dallas Cowboys: Amani Hooker
No. 62 New Orleans Saints: Miles Boykin
