Very Early 2019 NFL Mock Draft

Based off of week-by-week game picks. I also consider systems/coaches, surrounding players, and players’ age when projecting picks.

From Washington; Green Bay trades both of their 1st round picks and maybe more to grab this potentially franchise-changing end to bolster their front seven with another versatile pass-rusher.
The (very large) hole left by Ndamukong Suh will be evident, and Oliver is such an unbelievably talented player that he could go first overall, so the Fins would be smart to grab him here.
From San Francisco; Here, Indianapolis nags an immediate plug-and-play starter along their defensive line, giving the defense a needed boost.
If Josh Allen really is destined to be a franchise QB, the Bills need to keep him upright. Their defense is strong enough for them to forsake a front seven pick in favor of a talented tackle.
Ferrell can be a worthy replacement for Geno Atkins when he retires in the Bengals’ pass rush.
Larry Fitzgerald is going to retire eventually, so the Cards can plan for the future here by picking a superstar in Brown. He, Christian Kirk, and Ricky Seals-Jones would make up a receiving corps that is young and full of potential.
Here, I think the Bucs stick with Jameis Winston and fill what is possibly their biggest need by keeping a rock-solid player in state.
From Indianapolis; The 49ers need a few years to get going in my opinion, so they grab a corner who can grow under Richard Sherman and become great.
Stidham becomes Eli Manning’s successor as the first QB off the board, and will probably have a year to learn behind the veteran before starting.
Easily the Cowboys’ biggest need, Dak Prescott gets a talented player to throw to while giving defenses something not named Ezekiel Elliott to worry about.
Giving Russell Wilson even more protection will help the Seahawks move back towards their perch near the top of the NFC.
By picking Jackson, the Lions could end up with one of the best cornerback groups in the NFL, and Matt Patricia would get back to the days where he had three talented cover men to coach like in New England a few years ago.
Getting Marcus Peters’ replacement is a must, and Williams has sticky hands, good vision, and ballhawking skills, which can lead to lots of turnovers for the Chiefs.
From Bears; After trading Khalil Mack to Chicago, the Raiders get a young Mack-like prospect with plenty of potential on a rookie deal.
Garrett Bolles has proven himself to be a solid player, and their defense is so good that they can afford to try to find a bookend tackle for him and Case Keenum.
Giving Jabrill Peppers a partner in the middle of the field could give Cleveland the final push it needs to get to relevancy and maybe even the playoffs.
