This is a combo mock draft of all the 2018 and 2019 prospects. Leading up the 2019 NFL Draft, the consensus was that this class wasn't a very good one, so how would it stack up to the prospects in 2018? How would the draft have gone if all the players were available? Here's the mock, and before you read it, keep two things in mind: 1) The 2018 prospects don't have their rookie campaigns taken into account; otherwise, someone like Darius Leonard would be a top-10 pick. 2) The 2018 players were removed from each team's roster for needs purposes.
Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
Baker Mayfield is the better prospect compared to Kyler Murray - by a wide margin, if I may add - but he wouldn't be Arizona's pick atop this imaginary mock draft. The reason is because Mayfield and Kliff Kingsbury have a contentious relationship, so I doubt either party would want to be paired with the other. I imagine the Cardinals would want to stick with their plan of drafting Murray in this instance.
San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
We're 2-for-2 with 2019 NFL Draft prospects being listed atop this combo mock draft. The candidates for this pick would be Saquon Barkley or Nick Bosa, based on who the top players available happen to be. I went with Bosa because San Francisco is loaded at running back.
New York Jets: Sam Darnold, QB, USC
I don't know if the Jets would've chosen Sam Darnold over Baker Mayfield, and I doubt there's any way to find out, save for developing some sort of telepathy ability. However, it almost seems foolish to place Mayfield at this spot, given that we know the Jets loved Darnold enough to trade up from No. 6 to No. 3 for him in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Oakland Raiders: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
There were no viable quarterbacks worth taking at No. 4 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, but that's hardly the case in this combo mock draft. The Raiders were intrigued by Kyler Murray enough that I believe he would've been the pick had he fallen to them. If so, Baker Mayfield would be the obvious choice. In fact, we know Jon Gruden loves Mayfield, as he previously said of Mayfield that he has a "magic about him" and noted that Mayfield has the "it factor."
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
Wow, what a steal for the Buccaneers! Saquon Barkley falls to No. 5 overall because of the quarterback needs ahead of them. They're sorely lacking any sort of potent ground attack, and Barkley would certainly change that.
New York Giants: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
We know Daniel Jones would be the pick in this situation because Dave Gettleman selected him over blue-chip draft prospects like Ed Oliver and Josh Allen. With Saquon Barkley off the board, this decision becomes very simple for Gettleman.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C.State
The 2018 NFL Draft class takes the lead, 4-3! The Jaguars obtained great value with Josh Allen at No. 7 overall this year. In this case, they'll receive even greater value with Bradley Chubb, who was a far better prospect than Allen.
Detroit Lions: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
The Lions won't have to waste a top-10 pick on a tight end in this scenario. They're getting a premium defensive player in Quinnen Williams, who would make a huge impact for Detroit's pedestrian front seven.
Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
I have to believe this pick would still be Josh Allen. Ed Oliver would obviously be in consideration because Buffalo thought about trading up for him, but the need for a quarterback with great potential trumps a defensive tackle every time.
Denver Broncos: Devin White, LB, LSU
The Broncos traded down from No. 10 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft because some of the players they wanted were off the board. Their dream scenario entailed landing Devin White, who was long gone by the time Denver was on the clock. That's not the case in this scenario.
Cincinnati Bengals: Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame
The Bengals used the 11th-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on a guard. Jonah Williams, however, doesn't have great strength to be a perennial Pro Bowler at the position. The same thing can't be said of Quenton Nelson, on the other hand.
Green Bay Packers: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio State
The Packers used two early selections in the 2019 NFL Draft on cornerbacks, but Jaire Alexander and Joshua Jackson are off their roster, per the rules I've established. Thus, I imagine the Packers would be thrilled to land someone like Denzel Ward at this juncture.
Miami Dolphins: Minkah Fitzpatrick, S/CB, Alabama
This seems like an easy pick. The Dolphins were shocked Minkah Fitzpatrick dropped to them in the 2018 NFL Draft, so I imagine they would pick him again if they had to do so in this combo mock draft.
Atlanta Falcons: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
Tony Pauline reported that the Falcons were investigating the possibility of trading up for Ed Oliver, as he would provide a huge, much-needed upgrade to the interior of their defensive line. They wouldn't have to move up in this scenario.
Washington Redskins: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
Here's another team that was rumored to trade up. The Redskins were thrilled when Dwayne Haskins dropped to them at No. 15 overall, so I imagine Haskins would take priority over all of the other talented prospects still available.
Carolina Panthers: Josh Allen, DE/LB, Kentucky
This might be the steal of the combo mock so far. Because there are so many quarterbacks available, Josh Allen was pushed down. The Panthers selected Brian Burns with this choice, but I imagine they would've pulled the trigger on Allen in a heart beat.
