*** 2019 NFL MOCK DRAFT updated Dec. 9. This mock draft will be updated occasionally. Follow @walterfootball for NFL Draft updates. ***
Baltimore Ravens: Sam Darnold, QB, USC 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Courtland Sutton, WR
If someone in the comment board says that this draft order sucks, please feel free to call them an idiot because this is the second time I've written that this order is completely random. If the Ravens do end up with the top selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, it's likely that Joe Flacco has continued to regress, so he'll need need to be replaced.
Sam Darnold was once slotted first overall in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft, but he has struggled a bit this year, and he said he's not going to declare early if the Browns have the top pick, which is the case right now.
New Orleans Saints: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Billy Price, C/G
The Saints could use another interior defensive presence to go along with Sheldon Rankins, as it seems as though Nick Fairley may never play football again.
Ed Oliver was a highly productive defensive lineman for Houston, recording a ridiculous 22.5 TFLs as a freshman. He was a monster this season and currently projects to be a top-five pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
San Francisco 49ers: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Saquon Barkley, RB
The 49ers have a dominant defensive tackle in DeForest Buckner, but they could use another terrific presence to play next to him.
Dexter Lawrence is a monster of a defensive tackle (6-5, 340) and is exceptional at both stuffing the run and pressuring the quarterback.
Miami Dolphins: Kelly Bryant, QB, Clemson 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Ken Webster, CB
If the Dolphins are selecting in the top four of the 2018 NFL Draft, it probably means that Ryan Tannehill struggled in 2018. If so, Miami might decide to move on from him.
Kelly Bryant has taken college football by storm in 2017. He has just one full season under his belt, but if he continues at this rate, he'll be a top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Bryant has positive size, accuracy, arm strength and mobility.
Kansas City Chiefs: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): None
Dee Ford is an impending free agent, while Tamba Hali is as good as gone after this year. The Chiefs will need to find a new, potent edge rusher across from Justin Houston.
Nick Bosa has a tremendous skill set, and he has been very productive for Ohio State in 2017 thus far after recording five sacks last year.
Chicago Bears: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Calvin Ridley, WR
It's obvious that the Bears need to put lots of energy into finding dynamic weapons for Mitchell Trubisky over the next couple of offseasons. Fortunately, there are some quality receiving prospects available in the 2018 and 2019 NFL Drafts. If Cameron Meredith can't make it back from injury, the Bears could double up on receivers.
A.J. Brown has a tremendous athleticism, and he's been a great weapon for Ole Miss this year.
New York Giants: Trey Adams, OT, Washington 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Lamar Jackson, QB
I have the Giants selecting Lamar Jackson in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft. They'll need to protect him, and they could find their new left tackle in a 2019 NFL Draft class loaded at the position.
Trey Adams was a fixture in my 2018 mock before tearing his ACL. He's returning to Washington for 2018, but if he fully recovers, he'll be a top-10 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Indianapolis Colts: Rashan Gary, DE/DT, Michigan 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Bradley Chubb, DE
I have the Colts selecting Bradley Chubb in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft, but they could once again address their front seven. Their defensive line is solid, but could stand to have a dynamic play-maker in the group.
Rashan Gary is an athletic freak. He wasn't extremely productive as a freshman, but he recorded five sacks and 11 tackles for loss in 2017. His teammates believe he'll be a top-10 pick.
The Browns will need to continue to build around their quarterback - Josh Rosen selected in the 2018 NFL Mock Draft - and protecting him in the future will be key. Cleveland will need to obtain a future left tackle to eventually replace Joe Thomas, and Jonah Williams can play right tackle until Thomas retires.
Jonah Williams had a great freshman year as Alabama's right tackle. He's now manning the blind side with Cam Robinson gone.
New York Jets: Shea Patterson, QB, Ole Miss 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Clelin Ferrell, DE
The Jets missed out on a franchise quarterback in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft, so they'll have to find their long-term answer here.
Shea Patterson completed 64 percent of his passes during the 2017 campaign. League contacts have told Charlie Campbell that Patterson compares favorably to Johnny Manziel, but without all of the off-the-field concerns.
Oakland Raiders: Levonta Taylor, CB, Florida State 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Clellin Ferrell, DE
Oakland's secondary is pretty infamous for being terrible. The team has to find some talent at cornerback to go along with Gareon Conley.
Levonta Taylor was highly recruited, but hasn't done much yet. Scouts seem to love him though, so perhaps that'll change soon.
Carolina Panthers: Collin Johnson, WR, Texas 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Ronnie Harrison, S
The Panthers traded Kelvin Benjamin, so they'll need to find a talented receiver across from Devin Funchess.
Collin Johnson has great upside and athleticism for someone with his frame (6-6, 212), but caught only 28 passes as a freshman. He's taken a big step this season with 51 receptions.
Washington Redskins: Michael Deiter, C, Wisconsin 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Vita Vea, NT
The Redskins have had some poor play in the interior of the offensive line this season, aside from Brandon Scherff. That needs to change.
Michael Deiter has started at center, guard and tackle for Wisconsin. He's currently the favorite to be the first center chosen in the 2019 NFL Draft, though he could declare a year earlier.
Tennessee Titans: Marlon Davidson, DE, Auburn 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Isaiah Oliver, CB
Brian Orakpo may show signs of slowing down soon, and it's unlikely he'll still be on Tennessee's roster by 2019.
Marlon Davidson wasn't a huge contributor for Auburn as a freshman, but he has thrived thus far this year.
Philadelphia Eagles: Ahmmon Richards, WR, Miami 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Orlando Brown, OT
Torrey Smith likely won't be with the team in 2019 and beyond, while Nelson Agholor will be entering his contract year and could be aiming to receive a big contract.
Ahmmon Richards was highly productive as a freshman, catching 49 passes for 934 yards. He hasn't done much this year because of a hamstring, but he should have a big 2018 campaign.
Detroit Lions: Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A&M 2018 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/7): Austin Bryant, DE
Ameer Abdullah has finally remained healthy this season, and he's been a huge disappointment. The Lions need to find a talented backfield mate for Matthew Stafford.
Trayveon Williams needs to continue to build strength, but he has explosive ability. He can also catch passes fairly well (19 receptions as a freshman.)
