This pre-Draft process has been very fun and now I am finishing it with my final mock. Hopefully I should be able to predict some picks. Cheers.

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Cardinals: Kyler Murray, Quarterback, Oklahoma

The situation in AZ is bizarre, an unproven HC comes and is considering replacing a first round QB that played with questionable players alongside him and had to deal with a midseason OC change. Personaly I think Rosen could still develop a lot and I would select a DL player or trade down, but mock drafts are predictions so Murray is the pick.
After a strong Combine the dynamic QB gained massive hype and is the favorite be the first player drafted in 2019.
Update: This pick is getting more uncertain as Draft time comes. I still think Murray will be the pick as Kingsbury loves the man.

2. 49ers: Nick Bosa, 3-4 Outside Linebacker, Ohio State

Even if Cardinals manage to turn Murray into a better player than Rosen, the winner of their decision definetly is the 49ers, as the top 2 prospects of the class are still on the board.
The highly praised 2017 first rounders were both failures as Soloman Thomas was a reach and Reuben Foster was great but limited by off-field issues. After trading for Dee Ford the team filled a big need on the outside and because of that I changed my pick to Williams.
Now I think that Bosa has bigger chance of being the pick, because the value of an EGDE player is greater.

3. Jets: Quinnen Williams, 3-4 Defensive End, Alabama

Jets might be interested in trading down, with that in mind my pick will be Williams as teams like Bills, Broncos, Falcons and Panthers could make a trade to get him at this position. In order to make my mock more accurate, I will avoid trades.
With a improving young QB and a big cap space the Jets are in a great position to become contenders on the future. They need to take advantage of this strong class of DL to improve their pass rush.

4. Raiders: Josh Allen, Outside Linebacker, Kentucky

They manage to get a perfect piece to boost their defense. Allendefinetly will improve the comical number of 13 team sacks in 2018. The second worst in this stat has 30 SACKS, probably a college defence would have more sacks playing in the NFL than the Raiders.
I don't see them taking Haskins because they aren't in a win now situation, so they should give Carr another season in order to the front office decide if he is good enough to be their long term QB.

5. Buccaneers: Devin White, Inside Linebacker, LSU

Bucs are good candidates to trade down if teams feel that they need to move above the Giants.
It seems that former no.1 pick Winston will have one more year to prove himself and his defense needs major upgrades. LT needed an upgrade but they decided to give a big contract to the questionable Donovan Smith.
Some mocks have Oliver as the pick, but weren't able to trade McCoy, so they still have an expensive player that could prevent them from taking a DT. LB is a big need and a very good player is still available. White should step up and provide a big boost to the unit.

6. Giants: Ed Oliver, Defensive Tackle, Houston

Giants are a total mess. They have a questionable GM that just let go the best player from both sides of the team and now is rumored to pass on a QB for the second year in a row. This very irresponsible as they would waste more of Barkley's prime and will depend again on a future QB class that is very unpredictable. 1 year ago nobody new who Jones and Haskins were and Herbert and Patterson(Michigan) had big hype.
Oliver is of course a tremendous prospect and could turn into a solid pick, but they don't project of having a competitive season to make understandable drafting a skill position instead of choosing between THREE first round QBs.
If the front office really thinks that the class is weak on QB, they should trade down to get a 2020 first round pick and be well positioned to get a QB next year.

7. Jaguars: Jawaan Taylor, Offensive Tackle, Florida

After the signing of Foles the priority is to add as much talent as possible, so could be interested on adquiring extra picks, but I already explained that I won't put any trades on my Final mock.
Jaguars still have a steller defence that can play again at the 2017 level, but the window is closing and they won't be able to retain this talent for long. Foles needs better blocking and Taylor is the top OL of the class, so OT would be massively upgraded.

8. Lions: Montez Sweat, Outside Linebacker, Mississippi State

Ziggy Ansah was very good for the Lions but injuries limited him and now they need a new man to pressure the QB.
Sweat has medical concers but according to reports, this should affect much his stock as he was on of the winners of the pre-Draft process after dominating at the Senior Bowl and delivering a standout performance at the Combine.
Update': There have been rumors that Sweat will face a big drop on Thursday, but new reports are optimistic about Sweat injury concerns, so I won't change my pick as it makes a lot of sense.

9. Bills: Christian Wilkins, 3-4 Defensive End, Clemson

Kyle Williams has retired and a replacement is needed.
Wilkins showed at Clemson that he execells at both run defense and pressuring the QB and would be a quality replacement.

10. Broncos: T.J. Hockenson, Tight End, Iowa

Although Elway thinks that the Broncos will be contenders, I think that they should be intreseted on trading down, as they could make better value picks on the middle of the first round to fill their needs on WR, G or ILB.
Since Manning retired Broncos haven't found their future QB and pressure is high on the current front office. It seems that Elway thinks that Flacco can provide some production and might pass on the QBs. Flacco is better than Eli and it think that Broncos can survive 1 year without a future QB, as they won't be competitive in 2019 and should have a pick on the same range in 2020.
Broncos already have some young WRs and adding a promising TE would make that group much better. Hockenson would be a massive upgrade on Jake Butt. Hockenson is an all around player that can dominate blocking and provide mismatch duels against defenders.

11. Bengals: Dwayne Haskins, Quarterback, Ohio State

Bengals should be a strong contender to move up and 3rd,5th,6th and 7th picks are all realistic trade partners
Andy Dalton has been a capable starter, but must get upgraded. Haskins could use 1-2 years of experience on an NFL franchise before taking the starting job, it would be important not to rush on the kid like the Cardinals did with Rosen as the Bengals have a horrible roster.
Haskins is a complete QB with pocket presence, arm strengh and accuracy, he would provide some hope for a declining franchise.

12. Packers: Cody Ford, Offensive Guard, Oklahoma

After spending big money on Free Agency the Draft in Wisconsin will be focused on the offense to provide help to their star QB.
With two first round picks they have a chance of being active on the trade market, they could even give their two picks in order to pick on the top 5.
There has been some speculation hat they will pick a QB on the first round and I don't believe in them. Picking Lock or Jones would mean that they think Rodgers is regressing or they think that they won't be sucessfull with him. 'Prepare for the future' is stupid when you have a 35 year old QB that is the most talented player on the most important position of this sport. Rodgers, despite character and injury concerns, still has 3-6 seasons left on his prime and the franchise should instead focus on maximizing this window and giving the man a capable supporting cast.
Guard is their biggest need and Ford would be an instant starter that can also fill at tackle if needed.

13. Dolphins: Jonah Williams, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

I recently wrote an Open Rant about the future of the Miami Dolphins, there I concluded that the best option would be to capitalize on the class talent and pick a QB in 2020. It seems that Dolphins will follow a similar plan as they signed Fitzmagic.
A report from this site says that Williams is the focus of Dolphins for upgrading the OL. It would be a good pick as Williams is intelligent and is a safe pass blocker. He should provide a solid partnership with former premier prospect Laremy Tunsil and can also fill at Guard.
Trading down would also be a good option fior a franchise without talented players.

14. Falcons: Rashan Gary, 3-4 Defensive End, Michigan

Falcons had a very disappointing season but has the tools to bounce back with talented players on both sides of the ball.
The team cannot depend just on Vic Beasley. Gary as a rare talent and has big potential despite lack of production.

15. Redskins: Drew Lock, Quarterback, Missouri

We all knew that Smith would need to be upgraded if Redskins wanted to turn into Super Bowl contenders but with his serius injury they should consider taking a QB.
The upside is high for the young gunslinger and with some time on the bench Lock can improve his decision-making.

16. Panthers: Andre Dillard, Offensive Tackle, Washington State

LT should be the priority at Carolina as Cam Newton must be propely protected to avoid more injuries. Little has big upside and can lock the position for the next seasons.
Dillard has been praised by scouts and is a potential franchise LT that is much needed in Carolina.
