Published at 3/21/2019 10:05:10 AM
I've been doing mocks since 2013 yet have never officially published them. This is my first attempt and I tend to update at least once a week. Feel free to comment and I'll probably respond. I'm currently looking to add player comparisons to players. Just as a heads up I will not be comparing players to hall of famers just because I don't think that is reasonable.

I've been toying with this pick for a while now. I'm confident in now saying that the Cardinals will draft Kyler Murray with the #1 overall pick. Based off of what I've seen on film, he is my #2 QB in this class.
Pro Comparison: Robert Griffin III (Rookie Season Only) Hear me out on this. This was a tough one but I'm not saying he will be what RG3 is now. I'm saying he is going to be like how RG3 was his rookie season before he was destroyed by injuries. That is the potential I see.
I'm seeing a lot of reports saying that the 49ers are choosing between Bosa and Williams. A lot of those reports say they're leaning towards WIlliams. So with this and the fact that the interior of the 49ers defense is the weak spot, I'm going Williams
Pro Comparison: Gerald McCoy I see a lot of people comparing Williams to McCoy and I have to agree with them. He has the potential to be even better than that. Hes a freak athlete who will be a monster.
TRADE! I know, I know. Why trade up one spot? I think the Jets want Allen and not Bosa due to the scheme fit. Here they leverage Bosa's talent and manage to swap with the Raiders to recoup some picks later on in the draft.
Pro Comparison: Joey Bosa It is incredibly easy to compare the Bosa brothers. Joey is taller and has longer arms but Nick has that explosiveness and strength to bull rush through defenders.
The Jets had their pick of Bosa and Allen and chose Allen because of a more natural fit. Sure Bosa could of transitioned from a 4-3 to a 3-4 but who knows how well that would of panned out. They trade back one spot, get their guy, and recoup some draft capital.
Pro Comparison: Dee Ford This was another tough comparison. I see a lot of Leonard Floyd in Allen but I liken him more to what Dee Ford was able to do last year.
Personally I believe the Buccaneers would love to trade out of this spot. I just don't know if the value of the trade would make it worth it. They've been trading back in the past couple of years and it has not worked out for them. Here they take Sweat. He had a monster combine and pairing him with Jason Pierre-Paul will work nicely in Todd Bowles defense.
Pro Comparison: Manny Lawson I'd love to compare Sweat to Jason Taylor but I don't compare players to Hall of Famers. Sweat should be a better version of Lawson.
This is tough. I truly don't know with the Giants anymore. They love Haskins,they hate Haskins. Who knows. All I know is if he is here at 6 they take him. He's my #3 QB in this draft class.
Pro Comparison: Chad Pennington Haskins reminds me a lot of Pennington in his prime without all the injuries. Highly accurate, minimal mistakes.
Wow, just wow. Oliver's pro day was simply stunning. Impressive across the board. This defense finds the replacement for Malik Jackson.
Pro Comparison: Dominique Easley Some people are starting to compare him to Aaron Donald. It's not close. Olivers is lighter and lacks the strength that Donald has. Oliver is more like Easley. Very explosive, Very Quick, Lacks Size.
The Lions could use an upgrade at the ILB position so they take the best one available here in White. White is a big ILB with excellent instincts. He will fit nicely in this defense.
Pro Comparsion: Jonathan Vilma Vilma in his prime with the Jets was a monster. Excellent run defender and tackler who made plays all over. White and Vilma are similar in size and skill set.
Sure the Bills could go defense here. But it's the Bills. They get Josh Allen a true weapon here in Metcalf. Metcalf had an insane pro day. He could be poised to be the best receiver in this class.
Pro Comparison: Josh Gordon Metcalf reminds me a lot of what Gordon was in Cleveland. Well before all the drug use. He's going to be a monster for the Bills for years to come so long as he can avoid injuries.
My personal #1 QB in this draft class is Lock. I believe Lock to be the best QB after doing my usual research and game film evaluation. Its tough to have the Broncos draft Lock after trading for Flacco but letting him sit a year will be very beneficial.
Pro Comparsion: Ben Roethlisberger Yup. Big Ben. Lock has amazing talent to get outside the pocket and escape tackles. He's also got some surprising speed. Lock needs to be more consistent when he plays but I see an easy comparison here.
Truly an immense talent. The gap between Bush and White is small. I wouldn't be surprised if they swing him to OLB due to his size however.
Pro Comparison: Lavonte David He reminds me a lot of Lavonte David. And I believe he will play a similar role. I'd say he will be a better version of him as well.
Taylor is my best tackle in this class. I believe the Packers needs to bolster their o-line and keep Rodgers upright to have a chance this year. Khalil Mack destroyed their o-line last year and they can't let that happen again.
Pro Comparison: Morgan Moses Similar in size and talent. I do believe however that Taylor is more athletic and quicker than Moses is.
I don't know what the Dolphins are doing anymore much like the Giants. They're tanking but not tanking. Signing Fitzpatrick guarantees you at least 5 wins. I think he is an improvement over Tannehill anyway. This is way to early for Daniel Jones so the Dolphins take Gary here. Gary is a freak athlete who has an insane skill set, size, and speed. But the production in college is just not there.
Pro Comparison: Jadeveon Clowney I wanted to compare Gary to Cam Jordan but felt that was too much. If Gary can improve I believe he can have the success that Jordan has.
The defensive line is an area of weakness for the Falcons. Their defense was decimated with injuries last year. They add Ferrell who has the quickness, athleticism,and instincts to be a superior d-lineman.
Pro Comparison: Trey Flowers Ferrell isn't that speed rusher that you think of coming off of the edge but rather a polished player who can play all three downs. He's strong and long and should make for a good player for years to come.
I really dislike putting Jones here but I don't believe I have much choice. Jones is the 4th best QB in this class. The Redskins need a replacement for Smith and Keenum in the future. Jones has potential but is going to need to sit and learn for at least a year.
Pro Comparison: Eli Manning He reminds me a lot of Eli. Strong arm, vision, pocket presence are all positives. He just seems to be inaccurate at times with the ball. He had a poor combine as well. At his best he can be Eli, but i tend to believe he will be more of a poor mans Eli.
The Panthers could use help on o-line but they take Burns here. He has the potential to be a top 10 pick. He's got a long frame but is very undersized. He seems to have bulked up a decent amount though for the combine.
Pro Comparison: Leonard Floyd I believe in Burns. His real knock is his size and that can be fixed. The question will be can he sustain a bigger size and not run into issues with injuries. Burns has a similar speed and edge rushing potential that Floyd has.
