Prior Pick: Kyler Murray
Cards go all in on Kingsbury, and gets him his guy. I think Rosen is a similar player to Haskins, and can definetely be succesful QB in the NFL. In my prior mock, I therefore had Dolphins trading their no.13 for him. It seems however, that after struggling in a poor environment his rookie season, Rosen's value has gone down. Still, I think the Cards gets a 1st rounder in return. No.32 to the Patriots!
Prior pick: Nick Bosa
With the trade for Dee Ford, 49ers need for an edge rusher is a bit less pressing, and they can afford to go with what in my opinion is the best player in the draft. Williams is a game-wrecker.
Prior Pick: Dwayne Haskins to the Broncos
There is talk that Giants does not love Haskins and might target Daniel Jones with their no.17 pick. I can see that happening. Jones seems like the type of QB Gettleman likes. But I choose to beleive that this is a smoke-screen. The Giants need to fix their QB-position. They can not afford to mess around anymore. They thus use their no.6 and no.17 pick that they got from the OBJ trade (and perhaps a 2nd rounder in 2020) to move up and get this big-armed gunslinger.
Prior pick: Quinnen Williams
Finishing dead-last in sacks last season, Raiders need an edge rusher to replace Khalil Mack. I think Josh Allen is an excellent prospect. However, Nick Bosa is a more polished prospect. Prospects do not come more pro-ready than him. He will have double-digit sacks in year 1.
Prior pick: Josh Allen
Josh Allen will fit fantasticly as an OLB in Todd Bowles 3-4 scheme. He is a gifted, although unpolished, pass rusher who beats O-linemen with speed and athleticism. He also has added value in that he does a great job of dropping down in coverage and mirror TEs and RBs.
Prior pick: Montez Sweat to the Lions
With other QB-needy teams perhaps willing to trade up ahead of the Broncos to get Locl (thinking specifically of the Redskins), Elway may feel forced to move up to get his guy. While Lock's inaccuracy issues scares me, there has been buzz ever since the draft process started that Elway really likes him. Jets will be happy to trade down again. In addition to the no. 10 pick, I do not think the Broncos need to give away their 2020 first-rounder. 2nd rounders in 2019 and 2020 will do.
Prior pick: T.J. Hockenson
The value at this point in the draft is on the defensive side, but the Jag's needs are on the offensive side. I can therefore really see them looking to trade down, but at this point I do not know who will be interested. That said, I do like the fit of Hockenson to the Jags. Not only will it give Foles a reliable pass catcher. As a fantastic run blocker, he also fits the smash-mouth run-first identity that Marrone and Coughlin wants this team to have.
Prior pick: Drew Lock to the Giants
Patricia gets a hyper-athletic sideline-to-sideline playmaker for his defense. By getting Trey Flowers in FA, pass rusher is no longer such a pressing need, and the Lions can afford to take the BPA.
Prior pick: Devin White to the Bengals
I have long been a proponent of the Bills taking an O-lineman. And I still do not think it is a bad idea to invest in protecting Josh Allen. However, Bills have plenty of needs, including replacing Kyle Williams at DT. Wilkins is a great all-round prospect, and he is the kind of high-character guy that McDermott seems to covet.
Prior pick: Rashan Gary
By moving down from 3 to 10, Jets have been picking up 3 2nd-rounders (what they gave up for the trade that landed them Darnold) + the no.17 pick in this years draft. Not bad. At no. 10 they can go O-line. They have to do a better job of protecting Darnold. However, they also need an edge rusher, and the big combine winner is still on the board. This ultra-athletic pass rusher have the potential to thrive in Gregg Williams aggressive scheme.
Prior pick: Jawaan Taylor to the Bills
Bengals needs upgrades at the OG position. While I think that the best OT in college football will also be able to play OT in NFL, many project him to guard because of his short arms. Excellent technician and most polished O-lineman in the draft. Will improve the Bengal's O-line from day 1.
Prior pick: Christian Wilkins
I think Oliver gets knocked way too much for being undersized (I can think of another undersized DT doing ok...). And I am surprised that his combine performance have gone under the radar. Going into the combine, people said the difference between him and Donald was that Oliver lacks strength. He answered that by putting up an impressive 32 reps on the benchpress (less than Donald, but still 3rd highest of all D-linemen this year!). I think he can become a special player.
Prior Pick: D.K Metcalf to the Cardinals
Dolphins will wait for the 2020 draft to target their QB of the future. Instead they get a raw, but very talented pass rusher with a lot of athleticism and upside.
Prior pick: Ed Oliver
Falcons could do to improve the right side of their O-line. Taylor is a big strong, classic roadgrading RT, who could also be a dominant runblocker at guard. He would be an upgrade either for Sambrailo at RT or Jamon Brown at RG.
Prior pick: Andre Dillard
Vikings must do a better job of protecting their all-guaranteed QB. Cousins played well to start the season, but his play deteriorated after getting beat up behind a weak O-line. There is talk that they would like to move Riley Reiff to OG. By trading up to pick the most athletically gitfed pass protector in the class, this will be possible, and Vikings will have improved two spots on their O-line with one pick.
Prior pick: Garret Bradbury
Panthers needs to improve its pass rush, especially with Julius Peppers retiring. Bruce Irvin is a nice addition, but not enough. Ferrell is a polished pass rusher with great college production.
