    Full Analysis

    April 24, 2019

    1. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      There's a lot of chatter about the Cardinals being undecided on what they'll do with the first pick. I'm sticking with Murray as their choice.
    2. Nick Bosa

      DE

      Ohio St.

      The Niners can't go wrong with Bosa or Quinnen Williams here, but I think Bosa is a better fit.
    3. Quinnen Williams

      DT

      Alabama

      A lot of options for the Jets between Williams, Ed Oliver, Josh Allen or trading down. I think they'd prefer to trade down. In this case, they take the best player available.
    4. Ed Oliver

      DT

      Houston

      It wouldn't shock me if Dwayne Haskins is the pick, but the Raiders are desperate for pass-rush help and Oliver can help them in that area.
    5. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      In this scenario, it'll be a tough call for the Bucs between White and Josh Allen. I'll give them White to replace Kwon Alexander.
    6. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      The Giants need a pass rusher and a quarterback. I'm hearing they'll look to get a pass rusher first, and they land one of the best available this year in Allen.
    7. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      This decision could come down to Hockenson vs. Jonah Williams or Jawaan Taylor. However, if you study the great teams Tom Coughlin's been a part of either as a head coach or member of Bill Parcells' staff, there's been a powerful inline tight end on the roster (I'm thinking of guys like Jeremy Shockey and Mark Bavaro). Hockenson will have an impact in the run and pass game.
    8. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      Projected trade to Texans
      PROJECTED TRADE WITH LIONS. There are a lot of rumblings about Detroit and Buffalo looking to trade down, and the Texans are desperate for tackle help. They could afford to part with one of their two second-round picks this year (they hold Picks 54 and 55) as well as a Day 2 pick next year to get up into this range.
    9. Jonah Williams

      G

      Alabama

      Buffalo would love to trade down, but their offseason has been all about trying to support Josh Allen. Williams is a steady, solid player who will help keep the QB upright.
    10. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      The Broncos have done a lot of work on this year's QB class, but they ultimately address the defensive side of the ball in Round 1. Bush has a chance to be an elite player in this defense.
    11. Brian Burns

      EDGE

      Florida St.

      Burns is a polarizing player around the league, but no one doubts that he has the best get-off quickness in the draft. Cincinnati needs help on defense, and Burns fits the bill.
    12. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      If Andre Dillard were to fall, he'd come into play here. With him off the board, they still are able to address the offensive line. Taylor is a plug-and-play right tackle who will be an upgrade over Bryan Bulaga.
    13. Christian Wilkins

      DT

      Clemson

      Dolphins D-line coach Marion Hobby coached Wilkins during his first two seasons at Clemson. He's one of the safer picks in the draft and fills a need.
    14. Cody Ford

      G

      Oklahoma

      The Falcons love Christian Wilkins, but with the Dolphins beating them to the punch, they look to get younger and more talented on the offensive line.
    15. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      There's a lot of chatter about the Redskins trying to move up for a quarterback. Some believe their target is Haskins, others believe it's Daniel Jones.
    16. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      Sweat will be fascinating to follow on draft day. He's an elite talent, but some teams are concerned about his heart condition.
    17. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      I can't rule out Drew Lock here, but Jones has long been associated with the Giants. They get their QB.
    18. Garrett Bradbury

      C

      N.C. State

      The Vikings must address the O-line. Bradbury is one of the best center prospects of the last five years, and Pat Elflein would move to guard to clear a spot for him.
    19. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      I know some believe Tennessee will go with a D-lineman, but this is a huge year for Marcus Mariota. They give him some more help. However, there have been some rumblings that the Titans could be a surprise entrant into the QB market with Drew Lock as their target.
    20. Rock Ya-Sin

      CB

      Temple

      The Steelers need to add playmakers in the secondary. Ya-Sin is probably the safest corner prospect in the draft.
    21. Rashan Gary

      DE

      Michigan

      There are a lot of teams interested to see where Gary ends up going. It wouldn't shock me if he went in the top six or if he were to fall toward the bottom of the first round. He goes to a team with a glaring need off the edge after trading Frank Clark to the Chiefs.
    22. Elgton Jenkins

      C

      Mississippi St.

      I believe the Ravens will try to trade back and recoup the 2019 second-round pick they gave up in the trade to land Lamar Jackson last year. It's easy to envision Baltimore continuing to reinforce the O-line with a player like Jenkins.
    23. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      Projected trade to Lions
      PROJECTED TRADE WITH TEXANS. Detroit has spent a lot of time evaluating cornerbacks leading up to the draft. They land my top-rated CB after trading down.
    24. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      Even before the news about Marshawn Lynch retiring (again), the Raiders had a need at the RB position. The question is, do they take Jacobs here or do they wait and find a back in the middle rounds, where there's still value?
    25. Clelin Ferrell

      DE

      Clemson

      I could see the Eagles trading back, but in this scenario, they take the best player available in the trenches and one of the cleaner players in the draft.
    26. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      GM Chris Ballard is big on upside and the Colts have a patient plan that would allow them to wait for Simmons' eventual impact -- he suffered an ACL tear in February -- as a top-five talent in this draft.
    27. Darnell Savage

      S

      Maryland

      There are a bunch of teams picking late in the first round that are looking at safeties, and I think Savage will find his home in this range.
    28. Joejuan Williams

      CB

      Vanderbilt

      It would surprise some people to see Williams go this early, but he's a great fit for coordinator Gus Bradley's scheme.
    29. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      Seattle finds its next version of Kam Chancellor. I also wouldn't rule out Clemson DT Dexter Lawrence being picked here.
    30. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      Lock is one of the most difficult players to project in this draft. I could see him going with the sixth pick or falling to the bottom of the first round. Whether it's the Packers or another team that trades up for him, I don't see Lock getting out of Round 1.
    31. Chris Lindstrom

      G

      Boston College

      The Rams need to get some reinforcements for the offensive line and Lindstrom is a perfect fit.
    32. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      I'll be surprised if Fant lasts this long, but I could see the Patriots targeting him in a trade-up if he were to slip in the draft.
  2. Charles Davis

    Full Analysis

    April 23, 2019

    1. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Plenty of chatter that the Cardinals will now NOT take this terrific playmaker with the top choice, and may trade the selection. I believe they will weigh their options, but ultimately stay at No. 1 overall, moving forward with an innovative rookie head coach and a do-everything rookie QB.
    2. Nick Bosa

      DE

      Ohio St.

      Big-time pass rusher off the edge who can move inside in sub packages, too. Bosa LOVES the game and plays each snap accordingly.
    3. Quinnen Williams

      DT

      Alabama

      Yes, the Jets are open for business with this pick, but if they stick, pairing this star from Alabama with DL Leonard Williams will make new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams VERY happy.
    4. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      In addition to all of the college football awards he collected last season, he could have won "most improved" as well. His game will just keep getting better. However, if the Raiders are indeed planning a surprise pick here, I would keep an eye on linebacker Devin White.
    5. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      With new coordinator Todd Bowles overhauling the defense, the Bucs can't turn down the best inside linebacker in the draft.
    6. Rashan Gary

      DE

      Michigan

      Yes, this could be a quarterback, but my vibe says no. The Giants need help on both the offensive and defensive lines, and they start by adding a strong edge rusher who's a Jersey kid in Gary, despite any concerns about the shoulder injury he's been dealing with dating back to his college career.
    7. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      The Jags want to get back to running the ball and throwing off of play-action -- a formula that led them to an AFC title game in 2017. This fierce Gator helps achieve that in a big way.
    8. Ed Oliver

      DT

      Houston

      People keep talking about his size being an issue, but the Lions envision his quickness and skills wreaking havoc in the pocket.
    9. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      This could easily be a top offensive lineman in order to protect young quarterback Josh Allen, but the top tight end on many boards would also protect Allen, both by blocking (mauler) and in the passing game (excellent receiver).
    10. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      John Elway can't resist this big-armed thrower who improved greatly in his last year at Mizzou. Lock will get a chance to learn behind Joe Flacco for a season or more before inheriting the QB1 job.
    11. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      Anytime there's a new head coach, there's speculation about a new QB. With Andy Dalton not receiving an extension this offseason, this pick makes sense.
    12. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      The Packers have some good TEs already in Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis, but both are firmly in their 30s. My top-rated TE can be special for a long time.
    13. Clelin Ferrell

      DE

      Clemson

      Keep hearing the Dolphins are waiting until 2020 to select a QB. They'll ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick for at least a year, and pick Ferrell to help build a foundation for Brian Flores' defense.
    14. Christian Wilkins

      DT

      Clemson

      The Falcons' best defensive lineman, Grady Jarrett, needs a running mate inside; the winner of the Campbell Trophy (academic Heisman) fits the bill. Pretty darn good on the football field, as well. A CB could be in play, too.
    15. Brian Burns

      EDGE

      Florida St.

      Many are thinking QB here, and that's certainly a possibility. But, the selection of Burns gives Washington a pass rusher who can complement, and benefit from, the fellas from 'Bama inside (Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne). Veteran edge rusher Ryan Kerrigan also applauds the pick.
    16. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      The best pass-protecting offensive tackle in the 2019 draft, Dillard can plug in at LT and allow the Panthers to utilize Taylor Moton's power inside at guard.
    17. Jonah Williams

      G

      Alabama

      Williams was a skilled left tackle in college and he can stay in that spot in the NFL. I like him better inside at guard, but wherever he plays, he'll start from Day 1.
    18. Cody Ford

      G

      Oklahoma

      Brass will address the team's biggest need, helping the O-line with the All-American from Oklahoma, who can play tackle or move inside to guard.
    19. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      While no one likes to wait to unwrap their presents, Simmons' rehab from ACL surgery will require some patience. But once he's 100%, he will pair well with DL Jurrell Casey. A top-10 value in my book.
    20. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      The buzz on this Steelers pick is that they're likely to go CB. The question is, which one? In this case, it's the lengthy guy from the Bayou, who possesses great speed and excellent ball skills.
    21. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      With a big void at DE now that the Seahawks have agreed to trade Frank Clark to the Chiefs, Sweat's awfully attractive for a team that values speed at every position on defense.
    22. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      Head coach John Harbaugh wants a "tough guy" at WR. He won't mind a blazer who will bring a little "Hollywood" to the "Charm City."
    23. Greg Little

      T

      Mississippi

      The Texans must protect their franchise QB Deshaun Watson. He was hit way too often last year.
    24. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      A lead runner is a big-time need in Oakland. In Jon Gruden's offense, Jacobs can be his new "Charlie Garner," a terrific combo back who creates big plays in the run and pass games.
    25. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      The Eagles are thinking about the future at safety with Rodney McLeod coming off injury and due to hit free agency in 2020. Abram will be a hard-hitting tone-setter in the secondary.
    26. Dexter Lawrence

      DT

      Clemson

      The defensive front gets the call here, and fits a need, too. Division rivals Tennessee, Jacksonville and Houston all like to run the ball, and with big, powerful backs. Lawrence ups the power ratio to combat those attacks.
    27. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      My pick for the most instinctive CB in the draft, and the Raiders have a strong need for defensive playmakers at all levels. If they choose to go offense here, think tight end, and Irv Smith Jr. is still available.
    28. Rock Ya-Sin

      CB

      Temple

      Tough and loves to get in a receiver's face. Also, did I mention that he's tough? The secondary keeps getting stronger for the Bolts. I could also see them taking safety Taylor Rapp here to complement All-Pro Derwin James.
    29. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      The Seahawks continue to build a new Legion of Boom. Baker will likely be upset that other CBs were drafted before him, but he can use that as continued motivation. He's a true competitor who contests every ball in his area, and that feistiness will be very familiar to Seattle fans.
    30. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      The Packers cannot believe their incredible fortune that this outstanding defender lasted this long in the first round, as he could have easily been a top-15 pick.
    31. Garrett Bradbury

      C

      N.C. State

      John Sullivan performed very well in the pivot, but the Rams declined his contract option for 2019. Second-year player Brian Allen is currently penciled in to start, but that could change if Bradbury is available at No. 31. If L.A. wants defense, DT Jerry Tillery could work well next to Aaron Donald, and would allow the best defender in the league to continue to destroy offenses without being overly occupied by offensive linemen.
    32. Dalton Risner

      T

      Kansas St.

      The Patriots could easily trade this pick to a QB-needy team that wants to jump back into Round 1, but if New England stays put here, Risner could be the franchise's next Logan Mankins. Versatile, and accomplished, he can play tackle, guard or center.
  3. Rhett Lewis

    Full Analysis

    April 23, 2019

    1. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      No surprise here. The Cardinals make good on the worst-kept secret of this draft season and select the QB to support their head coach. Now, time to support the QB.
    2. Nick Bosa

      DE

      Ohio St.

      Yes, selecting a DL in the top 10 has become all too familiar to Niner Faithful, but Bosa's a better pure pass rusher than any of the previous selections in this mold -- and thus, the reason San Francisco goes with Bosa over Quinnen Williams.
    3. Quinnen Williams

      DT

      Alabama

      The Jets went down this road when Leonard Williams slipped to them at No. 6 back in 2015 -- they took the versatile DL despite already having Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson on the roster. OK, that didn't end up working out, but this could be the most likely trade destination in the top 10. If Murray goes No. 1, then Quinnen could be the target of teams looking to move into this spot.
    4. Ed Oliver

      DT

      Houston

      NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport's report of a "surprise pick" coming at this slot for the Raiders has me thinking crazy, but for a team solidly last in sack production a year ago, let's get a guy who has the fastest route to the QB: up the middle. Oliver has the ability to be a formidable interior presence for the Raiders.
    5. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      White rides into Tampa despite the Bucs signing LB Deone Bucannon in free agency. Best linebacker -- and one of the safest picks -- in the draft.
    6. Jonah Williams

      G

      Alabama

      Let's have some fun, shall we? Perhaps the Giants believe the offensive lineman they covet will be gone by 17, so they turn in the card at 6. We know GM Dave Gettleman loves the hog mollies. We know he believes Eli Manning can still play. If the Giants truly want to support their 38-year-old quarterback, then keeping him upright should be where it starts. Positional versatility gives Williams the edge over the rest of the OL class.
    7. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      Is there a player in this draft that better fits the attitude and style Tom Coughlin covets? The Jags help their two most valuable pieces on offense -- Nick Foles and Leonard Fournette -- with one draft pick.
    8. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      Admittedly, this is further down than I've expected Allen to go for the better part of this process. His skill set would seem to be an ideal fit for Matt Patricia's multiple-look defense.
    9. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      GM Brandon Beane was in Carolina when the Panthers made Julius Peppers a cornerstone of the franchise. I'm not exactly calling Sweat the second coming of Peppers, but the Mississippi State product shares some of those freakish qualities and could be a valuable edge presence for years to come.
    10. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      The Broncos get the prolific pass-catching tight end they haven't had since Julius Thomas departed Denver in 2015.
    11. Rashan Gary

      DE

      Michigan

      Gary falls out of the top 10, but not by much. While Rapoport reported Tuesday that Gary's shoulder has been flagged by teams, the defensive lineman recently told me on NFL Network that he's "110 percent." Could the Bengals unlock his tremendous potential and get rewarded with the much-anticipated sack production befitting a prospect possessing such elite athletic traits?
    12. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      After upgrading the edge of their defense in free agency, the Packers find their man in the middle in the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.
    13. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      The Dolphins add a nasty run blocker and get a fixture for the right side of their offensive line with Taylor, a popular candidate to be the first tackle off the board.
    14. Christian Wilkins

      DT

      Clemson

      Grady Jarrett signed his franchise tender, but without a long-term deal, the future remains unclear. Wilkins could provide some security on that front, and in the interim, give the Falcons an excellent tackle tandem in the middle of the D-line.
    15. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      The fall for Haskins stops in the nation's capital, where the Redskins are void of a long-term answer at QB, but won't be forced to turn to Haskins in Week 1 with Case Keenum and Colt McCoy on the roster.
    16. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      The Panthers' O-line remake continues with the selection of an excellent pass-blocking LT in Dillard. Paired with the free-agent signing of C Matt Paradis, the Panthers make big strides up front.
    17. Clelin Ferrell

      DE

      Clemson

      The Giants get an edge rusher with their second pick of the first round. Ferrell has experience getting to the QB at the highest level and in the biggest spots. And hey, perhaps the Giants are the winners of the Josh Rosen trade sweepstakes.
    18. Cody Ford

      G

      Oklahoma

      Ford provides the Vikings a much-needed upgrade on the offensive line.
    19. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      RELAX. Not necessarily putting Jones with the Titans here, but this is about the time he should come off the board. And since I didn't mock him to the Giants, I'm wondering if this is where somebody comes up to get him. Side note: Are you sold on the Titans QBs right now? Just food for thought.
    20. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      The Steelers could use some reinforcements on the perimeter, especially if they've grown weary of Artie Burns. Maybe Pittsburgh would prefer Washington CB Byron Murphy here, but I like Greedy.
    21. Brian Burns

      EDGE

      Florida St.

      Frank Clark is on his way to Kansas City, so the Seahawks nab the best available edge rusher in Burns.
    22. Garrett Bradbury

      C

      N.C. State

      If you're going to run the ball like the Ravens want to, a continued investment up front makes sense -- and they do that here in the form of the best center in the class.
    23. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      Murphy is arguably the cleanest corner in this class and would seem to be quite a bargain for the CB-needy Texans at this spot.
    24. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      "Hollywood" teams up with his cousin, Antonio, to form one of the most explosive receiving corps in the league.
    25. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      Best safety in the class goes to Philly.
    26. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      If the Colts are considering Dexter Lawrence here, then why not Simmons, who could be one of the best players in this draft when healthy?
    27. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      The Raiders coached Lock at the Senior Bowl. They snag him here, before the Chargers, Packers or Patriots could be tempted.
    28. Rock Ya-Sin

      CB

      Temple

      Chargers fortify their secondary with a technically sound corner and willing tackler.
    29. Lonnie Johnson

      CB

      Kentucky

      One of my favorite players in this draft, Johnson dominated at the Senior Bowl. He provides a physical presence on the perimeter and has the ability to be one of the premier press corners in the league. That style has played well in Seattle in the past.
    30. Chris Lindstrom

      G

      Boston College

      The Packers have long boasted a completely homegrown (through the draft) offensive line. Lindstrom helps get them back there on the interior.
    31. Dexter Lawrence

      DT

      Clemson

      The Rams obviously value the interior presence along their defensive line, and with Ndamukong Suh not in the plans for 2019, Lawrence could fit next to Aaron Donald.
    32. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      Bill Belichick has never selected a receiver in the first round as head coach in New England, but Metcalf's speed could tempt him enough to do it here. And if it isn't the Pats, does someone else make a move up for Metcalf at the back end of Round 1? An OL like Dalton Risner or Kaleb McGary got some consideration here, but let's shoot some fireworks to end the night.
