Published at 4/20/2019 9:03:59 PM
With the draft a week away and it takes me to finish up a mock in a week this will be my last and final mock. Again, I will not include trades due to their random nature that is even more unpredictable than the actual drafting of players. So, without further adieu, here we go!

This is the pick and I hate it. I see this being the biggest bust of the draft and the whole organization taking a huge gamble here. Not only on Murray, but even hiring Kliff Kingsbury as the head coach. This has a feeling of a dumpster fire and a pick being made just to be media relevant for a bit. I can see Murray being okay his rookie season, but this style of play is unsustainable at his size and his penchant to take off under pressure. I hope where ever Josh Rosen goes he proves that he was the better quarterback to roll with.
Last Week's Pick: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma
I initially had Williams here to begin the process after they landed Dee Ford, but Bosa seemed to have the inside track prior to his twitter being over analyzed. I doubt his ideas mesh well in San Francisco so a move back to Williams makes sense. I love Williams with his upside being only a one year starter, lack of injury history, and how he plays at a premium interior pass rushing position. Having a front with him, Ford, Forrest, and Armstead is actually pretty impressive.
Last Week's Pick: Nick Bosa DE Ohio St
I think the Jets will be tempted to go with Bosa, but New York would not be a friendly place for Bosa's ideologies as well with how relentless their media can get. Instead, sticking with Josh Allen here makes a ton of sense with their needs on the edge. I think they are moving to a more hybrid scheme as well after they failed to lock up Anthony Barr and instead can go after a younger, better, and more talented option like Allen here. Plus, Allen is a local product out of New Jersey who can be a fan favorite right away.
Last Week's Pick: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky
The Raiders are not afraid to take risks clearly after trading away Mack and Cooper then trading for AB. Not only that they have taken draft risks last year with Arden Key's character and Maurice Hursts health. Bosa fits both concerns here and if it lands well for the Raiders they can officially be considered for real here. The only thing holding them back in my opinion could be Jon Gruden whose coaching still needs to catch up to the modern game in my opinion.
Last Week's Pick: Quinnen Williams DT Alabama
After losing Kwon Alexander the Bucs once vaunted linebacking core has taken a hit. No matter they have a shot to replace one LSU linebacker with another and possibly better one to pair with the aging Lavonte David. White is my favorite prospect in this whole class. From his talent to his leadership there is not much else you want from a top 10 pick. I think he has very little bust ability and should be an immediate impact player on one of the league's worst defenses last season.
Last Week's Pick: Devin White LB LSU
The Giants could wait on Jones with the 17th pick, but that seems risky seeing as how they have to hope he passes by the Redskins, Dolphins, and Broncos to get there. Instead, they should take him here and take a pass rusher with their second first round pick instead. Jones is the spitting image of Eli Manning, but with a lot more athleticism to move around. He comes from Manning's old coach David Cutcliffe and has worked out with both Mannings in the off season. Jones would be the perfect understudy to develop behind Eli for a season before he's ready to play next year. I actually do not mind this pick even though I think Haskins is the better prospect, but at least it's a quarterback and a step in the right direction for once for the Giants.
Last Week's Pick: Daniel Jones QB Duke
The Jags should aim to making sure the Nick Foles signing is as successful as possible. Taking a blue print from the Vikings with Kirk Cousins where they failed to support him with good blockers, the Jags should go that route. One name rising quickly up the boards is Jonah Williams who to me is the most complete blocker in terms of being able to play at a high level right away. Whether if it is at tackle or guard either spot Williams should be an immediate top blocker for the Jags.
Last Week's Pick: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida
The Lions are in a sort of an awkward spot here where their main target Devin White is most likely not going to make it there. Now they can go in multiple directions and most of which I think is continuing to build up the defensive line. Even after adding Trey Flowers another pass rusher could always be needed and why not one from the local college Michigan. Gary is a raw, big, and athletic end who possesses the most upside of any pass rusher in this class.
Last Week's Pick: Ed Oliver DT Houston
The Bills could be looking at a blocker or two here, but they did pretty well in free agency fixing the blocking unit pretty well. Instead, they can add a pass rusher on the line to help out their solid defense. One great fit could be Ed Oliver at the three technique for coach Sean McDermott's defense. They have two solid run stuffers in Star Lotulelei and Harrison Phillips. The final piece could be Oliver who can be a dynamic interior rusher.
Last Week's Pick: Rashan Gary DE Michigan
The Broncos could be swayed towards a quarterback here, but why should they when they have Joe Flacco signed for and hopefully next seasons class is better. Instead, they need a new anchor in the middle of the defense after cutting Brandon Marshall and letting Danny Trevathan go to Chicago a few seasons ago. Bush is every bit as good as White athletically as a linebacker. He just does not have the tape or elite instincts that make White special. I would not be shocked if Bush turns into a similar type backer as Roquan Smith in due time.
Last Week's Pick: Drew Lock QB Missouri
The Bengals should be looking at quarterbacks with new head coach Zac Taylor unlikely wanting to tie his first coaching gig to Andy Dalton. With the proper tools around him Dalton can be a solid starter, but nothing special or good enough to take you to the Super Bowl. I still contend that Haskins is the best quarterback in this class with his high end arm talent, size, and big game success. Yes, his mechanics need work, but so do most quarterbacks from college to the pros. Under Taylor's tutelage Haskins could beat out Dalton for the starting gig in due time.
Last Week's Pick: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio St
The Packers have done a good job bolstering their pass rush via free agency with Preston and Za'Darius Smith, which gives them more flexibility with their pick here. I know they just signed Jimmy Graham last year to a big deal, but he has never been the same since his time with Drew Brees in New Orleans. He is also a one-dimensional tight end who cannot block, which is not great due to Rodgers injury history. Hockenson could be a great fit here with his all around game that can be a reliable target for Rodgers to work with along with his high end blocking ability at the position. If this is the pick come next week this may be my favorite of the whole draft with just how well it fits.
Last Week's Pick: Devin Bush LB Michigan
The Dolphins should be the one team fully into the tank for Tua next season. They have an owner who loves college superstars and brought in tank master supreme in Ryan Fitzpatrick. I just hope new head coach Brian Flores will not get the axe after the season. One way to prepare for the new quarterback is to build up the o-line in front of him. After letting Ju'Wan Taylor go they need new talent on the line. Taylor has the talent to be a left tackle in the pros, which will allow them to kick Laremy Tunsil to the right tackle spot or guard where is a better fit overall.
Last Week's Pick: Jonah Williams OL Alabama
The Falcons could always use a new defensive linemen, but they have drafted that position heavily the past few seasons with no true success. Instead, they can look to retool the secondary where they have had better success finding talent. After cutting Brian Poole and Robert Alford a new corner is really needed. Why not get another corner out of Washington like Desmond Trufant that they have had a lot of success with. Murphy is a similar intelligent, clean technique, and talented corner to Trufant who can fit perfectly in this scheme.
Last Week's Pick: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa
I still contend that the Redskins should trade this pick and maybe a second round pick next year for Josh Rosen. He is a lot better than any rookie they can get here and he would have the opportunity to learn from Alex Smith and Case Keenum who are known mentors to Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff respectively. Lock has talent though to mine a great quarterback out of him due to his talent. His gunslinger mentality is similar to Jay Cutler along with his attitude. He can be the best quarterback from this class or be the biggest bust in my opinion.
Last Week's Pick: A.J. Brown WR Ole Miss
After Julius Peppers finally retired the Panthers officially have a big need at pass rusher. Mario Addison is a nice player and so was picking up Bruce Irvin on a one year deal where he will play hard. However, they could really use a young upside type of pass rusher to build around on defense. Why not land a Peppers look a like athletically in Montez Sweat. Everyone know how athletic Sweat is, but he just needs to get more consistent not only play to play, but drive to drive where he has been known to disappear. His talent is just too good to pass up on here.
Last Week's Pick: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi St
