    Full Analysis

    March 21, 2019

    1. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Kyler Murray is the obvious choice here as the quarterback who fits perfectly in new head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense.
    2. Nick Bosa

      DE

      Ohio St.

      The acquisition of Dee Ford could allow the 49ers to target a trade-back in this spot, but why not add another edge rusher or a defensive lineman with the ability to play on the edge or in a reduced role in sub-packages?
    3. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      Quinnen Williams could be hard to pass up here, but it might be even harder to pass on a long, athletic edge presence like Allen, who is just beginning to come into his own as a rusher.
    4. Quinnen Williams

      DT

      Alabama

      The first of the Raiders' three first-round picks is an interior pass rusher who has the ability to heat up the pocket with excellent quickness off the snap and instincts.
    5. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      Montez Sweat could easily be the pick in this spot, but the Bucs may look to play it safe after the news of Sweat's heart condition. White gives the Bucs a speedy hitter in the middle of the defense.
    6. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      Whispers have begun circulating that the Giants are not in love with QB Dwayne Haskins. If that's the case, the Giants could go with Metcalf to add a big, fast wideout with the potential to become the new WR1 after Odell Beckham's exit via trade.
    7. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      After their disastrous 2018, the Jaguars added a new quarterback in Nick Foles, and now they add a ton of attitude with a road-grading right tackle who can protect the QB and open holes in the running game.
    8. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      Given that tests revealed a heart condition for Sweat, it's possible that he could slip a bit in this draft. The Lions might not allow him to fall past this selection, though, as they are still working to beef up an edge rush that now includes free-agent signee Trey Flowers.
    9. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      Dillard can play on the left or right side, but either way, he'll address the top priority of keeping second-year QB Josh Allen upright.
    10. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      Denver did a nice job patching up (and, in some cases, repairing) holes in its roster through free agency, but Hockenson is too valuable to pass up as a safety valve for Joe Flacco. He's an athletic combination tight end who is just as comfortable getting after it as a run blocker as he is getting open and making catches.
    11. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      The Bengals re-signed Preston Brown, but they still need more talent at linebacker after the release of Vontaze Burfict. Bush gives them a rangy, productive Day 1 starter at the position.
    12. Ed Oliver

      DT

      Houston

      With Mike Daniels in the final year of his contract, Green Bay could look to replenish that spot with another undersized but disruptive talent along the D-line's interior in Oliver.
    13. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      We already know the king of the bridge quarterbacks is in place and waiting to start for the Dolphins (Ryan Fitzpatrick), but he would also be an excellent choice to help mentor the future at the position.
    14. Rashan Gary

      DE

      Michigan

      Gary's combination of height, weight and speed is top-five caliber, but he may be too raw to go that early. The Falcons have a need on the edge, and it would be very difficult to pass on a player with such a high ceiling at a priority position.
    15. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      Any consideration of a quarterback here could be superseded by Washington's need for immediate cover help.
    16. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      There isn't much buzz about Williams these days, but he's an intelligent, accomplished lineman who can play either tackle spot, guard or even center. Carolina might ask him to handle the rigors of left tackle right out of the box.
    17. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      The Giants passed on quarterback with the sixth pick but still land a talented signal-caller to groom behind Eli Manning with their second pick of the first round (acquired from the Browns in the OBJ trade).
    18. Cody Ford

      T

      Oklahoma

      The Vikings could get more value by taking the best available defensive tackle on their board here, but the need at guard might push them into addressing that position with this pick.
    19. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      Titans fans seem to believe Delanie Walker will play into his 50s, but we all know that's not happening. With that in mind, Tennessee selects this talented pass-catching tight end who can double as a big slot receiver.
    20. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      Gritty, ballhawking cornerback with the willingness and desire to come up and lay the lumber in run support. He plays like a Steeler.
    21. Brian Burns

      EDGE

      Florida St.

      The temptation is to put Clelin Ferrell in this spot, but Seattle covets explosiveness, and Burns proved he has plenty of it at the NFL Scouting Combine while carrying much-needed additional weight.
    22. Garrett Bradbury

      OL

      N.C. State

      Sources around the league believe it's possible that Bradbury goes before this selection, but if he's on the board here, it could be hard for the Ravens to pass on this heady, consistent leader.
    23. Greg Little

      T

      Mississippi

      The Texans are hamstrung by a severe need at left tackle that may force them to reach or trade back. Dalton Risner or even Kaleb McGary could make sense here, but neither can play left tackle, while Little most certainly can.
    24. Clelin Ferrell

      DE

      Clemson

      Ferrell is a three-year starter with a winning pedigree and the ability to not only get after the passer, but set a strong edge as a run defender for Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock.
    25. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      The Eagles have been taking a piecemeal approach at the running back position for a few years now, but Jacobs would give them a three-down back with limited tread off the tires and a legitimate talent as a pass-catcher.
    26. Dexter Lawrence

      DT

      Clemson

      Last season, general manager Chris Ballard added a big, strong offensive lineman in Quenton Nelson with his first-round pick. This year, he adds a big, strong guy on the defensive side with Lawrence.
    27. Dalton Risner

      T

      Kansas St.

      Risner could be an important addition as he can step into the left guard spot on Day 1 while also offering an insurance policy at tackle in case Kolton Miller struggles moving forward.
    28. Kaleb McGary

      T

      Washington

      The Chargers could also look at defensive tackle here, but McGary offers the Chargers a big, athletic right tackle with a mean streak.
    29. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      Baker disappointed a bit at the combine, but he's too consistent and talented for the cornerback-hungry Chiefs to pass on him.
    30. A.J. Brown

      WR

      Mississippi

      Projecting a receiver to Green Bay in the first round was a waste of time in years past, but that may no longer be the case with second-year GM Brian Gutekunst doing things a little differently than his predecessor, Ted Thompson. Brown is a big, competitive slot receiver who could become a high-volume target for Aaron Rogers.
    31. Christian Wilkins

      DT

      Clemson

      Wilkins is an upfield defensive tackle with the ability to get into gaps and bring the ruckus, just like defensive coordinator Wade Phillips likes.
    32. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      The rich get richer. If there are any more pressing needs, they could be cast aside so that Bill Belichick can get his hands on one of the most talented players in the draft -- Simmons is likely to slide due to an ACL tear he suffered last month, along with his his 2016 arrest.
  2. Bucky Brooks

    Full Analysis

    March 19, 2019

    1. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      Kliff Kingsbury gets his preferred QB1 to run his system in Arizona. Murray's dual-threat talents open up the playbook for the rookie head coach.
    2. Quinnen Williams

      DT

      Alabama

      Dee Ford's signing could free up the 49ers to add an explosive interior player to give the defense a devastating 1-2 punch that hasn't existed since the days of Justin Smith and Aldon Smith.
    3. Nick Bosa

      DE

      Ohio St.

      Bosa would give the Jets the edge rusher they've desperately needed to button up a talented defensive lineup.
    4. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      Allen's speed and sack production could make him the right fit for a Raiders defense that needs some juice on the defensive line.
    5. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      The sideline-to-sideline playmaker is a perfect fit for Todd Bowles' attack-style defense.
    6. Rashan Gary

      DE

      Michigan

      Gary is far from a finished product, but his combination of size, strength and athleticism could make him a star as a versatile edge defender.
    7. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      Taylor would give the Jaguars a rugged edge blocker to help them get back to their run-heavy roots.
    8. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      Adding a long, rangy pass rusher opposite Trey Flowers would give the Lions a dynamic duo on the edges to harass QB1s in the pocket. The recent news that tests at the combine revealed Sweat has a heart condition could lead some teams to think twice before picking him, but based on what I know at this point, I still expect him to be a top-10 selection.
    9. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      Protecting Josh Allen is priority No. 1 for the Bills' front office.
    10. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      It is hard to find a traditional Y tight end with the size and strength to dominate defenders on the edges while also possessing enough receiving skills to threaten the middle of the field. Hockenson checks off all of the boxes as a throwback at the position.
    11. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      The Bengals need to add more speed and quickness to their linebacker corps to compete with the explosive offensive units within the division. Bush is a sideline-to-sideline playmaker with outstanding instincts, awareness and cover skills.
    12. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      Aaron Rodgers needs more weapons around him to return the Packers' offense to the ranks of the elite. Fant is an athletic freak with the speed and quickness to create mismatches all over the field as a flex tight end.
    13. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      Dolphins general manager Chris Grier might weigh Haskins' long-term potential against the 2020 QB class. The Ohio State standout has the arm talent and pocket passing skills to shine in an offense that features a variety of catch-and-run playmakers on the perimeter.
    14. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      The Falcons could use an upgrade at right tackle to solidify an offense that's regressed a bit since ranking No. 1 in points per game in 2016. Williams is a technician with the feet and hand skills to play right or left tackle as a pro.
    15. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      Brown is arguably the best deep threat in the 2019 NFL Draft as a speedster with exceptional quickness and burst. He could play in the slot or give Washington another weapon on the outside.
    16. Clelin Ferrell

      DE

      Clemson

      Losing Julius Peppers to retirement makes adding a pass rusher a top priority. Ferrell is a straight-line pass rusher with a knack for getting to the quarterback.
    17. Daniel Jones

      QB

      Duke

      Jones could be the perfect successor to Eli Manning based on the Duke product's pedigree (David Cutcliffe, who coached Manning at Ole Miss, coached Jones in Durham for the past four years) and unflappable demeanor.
    18. Ed Oliver

      DT

      Houston

      The loss of Sheldon Richardson (signed with the Browns) leaves a void in the middle of the defense. The ultra-explosive Oliver could thrive as a penetrating three-technique on a defensive line loaded with A-plus talent.
    19. Irv Smith

      TE

      Alabama

      It might be time for the Titans to find Delanie Walker's successor based on his age and injury history. Smith is an athletic pass catcher with the speed, quickness and burst to create problems between the hashes.
    20. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      The Steelers could use a high IQ cover corner with superb instincts and a diverse skill set. Murphy is a perfect candidate to excel as a CB1 in a defense that mixes man and zone concepts.
    21. Jaylon Ferguson

      EDGE

      Louisiana Tech

      The FBS all-time sack leader would be a suitable complement or successor to Frank Clark as an edge rusher.
    22. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      Despite missing on the last two receivers they drafted in Round 1 (Breshad Perriman and Mark Clayton), the Ravens could take a flier on Metcalf, who would provide big-play potential in a run-heavy offense that creates plenty of one-on-one opportunities.
    23. Greedy Williams

      CB

      LSU

      Williams is an explosive athlete with the press-man skills and hands to be a turnover machine on the island. He would excel in Romeo Crennel's defense, with the potential to be a true CB1 in a year or so.
    24. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      Gruden's love affair with Lock at the Senior Bowl could prompt him to take the Mizzou standout and make him the Raiders' franchise quarterback of the future.
    25. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      The Eagles need a dynamic RB1 in the backfield to create more explosive plays. Jacobs can grind out the tough yards between the tackles or deliver some sizzle plays on perimeter runs and swing passes out of the backfield.
    26. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      Abrams is the enforcer the Colts need to complement ballhawk Malik Hooker. The Mississippi State star is an exceptional run defender with the toughness and power to patrol the middle of the field.
    27. Rock Ya-Sin

      CB

      Temple

      Mike Mayock loves corners who have great feet and tough-guy personas. Ya-Sin is a blue-collar cover corner with the versatility to play out wide or in the slot.
    28. Dexter Lawrence

      DT

      Clemson

      Given free agent Corey Liuget's uncertain status, Lawrence could be a target for the Chargers at this pick. As a massive space eater with exceptional athleticism, Lawrence will occupy blockers and create opportunities for the team's linebackers to flow freely to the ball.
    29. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      The Jim Thorpe Award winner has the ball skills, instincts and courage to make a ton of plays on the island.
    30. A.J. Brown

      WR

      Mississippi

      Route runners with size, speed and hands are always coveted at a premium. Brown is a rock-solid WR2 with outstanding potential as a big slot receiver.
    31. Garrett Bradbury

      OL

      N.C. State

      High IQ pivot with outstanding movement skills and technique. Bradbury plays like a 10-year vet at the position and would add more youth and athleticism to the frontline.
    32. Christian Wilkins

      DT

      Clemson

      Wilkins' versatility and explosiveness could make him a perfect match for the Patriots' chameleon-like scheme.
  3. Charles Davis

    Full Analysis

    March 15, 2019

    1. Kyler Murray

      QB

      Oklahoma

      He won the NFL Scouting Combine when he measured 5-foot-10 1/8 (we've come a LONG way in the NFL from being dismissive of undersized QBs) -- and his arm, accuracy, touch, and all-around playmaking ability cannot be passed up by the Cardinals.
    2. Nick Bosa

      DE

      Ohio St.

      Considered by many to be the best player in the 2019 draft, Bosa is an intriguing mix of size, speed and ferocity. He will team perfectly with Dee Ford and DeForest Buckner to terrorize QBs.
    3. Quinnen Williams

      DT

      Alabama

      The Jets have earned their share of back pages in the NYC tabloids during free agency, and now they add a tag-team partner for stud DE Leonard Williams.
    4. Josh Allen

      EDGE

      Kentucky

      As terrific and relentless as Allen has been for the Wildcats, I think his best play is still ahead of him. The Raiders ranked dead last in the league with 13 sacks in 2018.
    5. Montez Sweat

      EDGE

      Mississippi St.

      A leader at ILB (like LSU's Devin White) makes sense here, but head coach Bruce Arians and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles believe that speed and pressure drive a defense. Sweat provides both (his 4.41 40-yard dash at the combine was a modern record for a defensive lineman).
    6. Dwayne Haskins

      QB

      Ohio St.

      Perfect spot for this prolific passer to land. With Haskins coming out as a redshirt sophomore, and landing in the N.Y. metropolitan area, it's not a bad thing for him to have time to acclimate behind Eli Manning.
    7. Noah Fant

      TE

      Iowa

      Already a top prospect, Fant blew the doors off the combine in Indy, and provides a great -- and needed -- target for new Jags QB Nick Foles, who made great use of Pro Bowl TE Zach Ertz in Philadelphia.
    8. Rashan Gary

      DE

      Michigan

      Head coach Matt Patricia's specialty is defense, and after Detroit's signing of former Patriot Trey Flowers in free agency, the building of a formidable defensive front continues with this talented youngster out of Ann Arbor. I expect he'll be more productive in the NFL than he was in college.
    9. Jawaan Taylor

      T

      Florida

      When you draft a QB in the first round, you have to do everything possible to keep him upright and healthy. Second-year signal-caller Josh Allen will applaud getting another big body that can play in front of him.
    10. Devin White

      LB

      LSU

      Expect GM John Elway to take a LONG look at Missouri QB Drew Lock despite the acquisition of Joe Flacco, but ultimately Denver opts for this multi-talented LB who leads vocally and by example. Not to mention, he's a hard hitter.
    11. Devin Bush

      LB

      Michigan

      The Bengals re-signed Preston Brown, but they could still use more help at linebacker. This speedy playmaker diagnoses and finds his way to the ball quickly. Bush's dad is a former NFL safety.
    12. Christian Wilkins

      DT

      Clemson

      As injuries mounted last season, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine had to do a lot of mixing and matching along the DL. Wilkins' size and versatility make him a good running mate for Kenny Clark and Mike Daniels.
    13. Drew Lock

      QB

      Missouri

      The Dolphins have been fairly quiet during free agency, but the QB position has to be addressed, and the best senior QB falls into Miami's lap here. A big arm and plenty of moxie are headed to South Florida.
    14. Ed Oliver

      DT

      Houston

      Another upfield, penetrating DT who should complement and upgrade the play of fellow DT Grady Jarrett.
    15. Jonah Williams

      T

      Alabama

      This organization certainly had to have QB Drew Lock on its radar, but with him off the board, here's a chance to shore up the OL. I like Williams better at guard, but he can certainly play OT. Washington has shown that it's not shy about drafting Crimson Tide stars.
    16. Clelin Ferrell

      DE

      Clemson

      Following the retirement of Julius Peppers, Carolina is thrilled to see this mature, aggressive pass rusher from Clemson is still available.
    17. Andre Dillard

      T

      Washington St.

      The Giants find a building block for the O-line with this pick, acquired from the Browns in the OBJ trade. Dillard, who many believe is the best pass protector in the draft, can grow with their top pick, Dwayne Haskins.
    18. T.J. Hockenson

      TE

      Iowa

      The OL will get a long look, but Hockenson is a tremendous blocker who will help the run game get untracked -- and he's an excellent receiver, as well.
    19. Brian Burns

      EDGE

      Florida St.

      With Brian Orakpo's retirement and the potential departure of free agent OLB Derrick Morgan, the Titans countered with the signing of veteran Miami DE Cameron Wake. Burns and 2018 draftee Harold Landry would benefit from his tutelage, as would the Titans' pass rush.
    20. Marquise Brown

      WR

      Oklahoma

      Amidst all the hand wringing after the loss of All-Pro WR Antonio Brown, the man they call "Hollywood" -- who happens to be Antonio's cousin -- steps into the breach, and provides instant big-play ability. He wasn't able to work out at the combine or Oklahoma's pro day due to a Lisfranc (foot) injury, but he's expected to be ready for training camp.
    21. Jeffery Simmons

      DT

      Mississippi St.

      Talented enough to be a top-10 pick, the ACL injury he suffered in February and his 2016 arrest drop him down. The Seahawks are willing to wait for him to heal up before turning him loose in Pete Carroll's scheme.
    22. Parris Campbell

      WR

      Ohio St.

      Extremely fast and elusive. A perfect match for the run-first Ravens, who now have a true deep threat to throw it to over the heads of safeties creeping to the LOS to help slow down RB Mark Ingram and QB Lamar Jackson.
    23. Cody Ford

      T

      Oklahoma

      It's time to invest in the offensive line to help keep Deshaun Watson, who was sacked a league-high 62 times last season, upright.
    24. Josh Jacobs

      RB

      Alabama

      The heir apparent to Beast Mode -- who's currently a free agent -- is here. Tremendous burst and excellent hands. The best RB in the draft.
    25. Deandre Baker

      CB

      Georgia

      Wasn't the best combine for him, but his tape shows an ultra-competitive CB who contests all passes thrown in his area.
    26. D.K. Metcalf

      WR

      Mississippi

      A scary combination of size, speed and production when healthy. With WR T.Y. Hilton and TE Eric Ebron occupying attention from defenses, there will be ample opportunities for Metcalf to bully secondaries.
    27. Byron Murphy

      CB

      Washington

      The Raiders' struggles to take the ball away have been well documented. I love this young man's instincts, and toughness.
    28. Taylor Rapp

      S

      Washington

      Terrific range sideline to sideline and in the alleys. A sure, excellent tackler, Rapp will plug nicely into defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's attacking unit.
    29. Johnathan Abram

      S

      Mississippi St.

      Abram will pair nicely with free-agent signee Tyrann Mathieu. The Chiefs will look to other avenues to fill their need for a pass rusher.
    30. Dalton Risner

      T

      Kansas St.

      The versatile O-lineman (Risner played center, guard and tackle at K-State) could easily be the heir apparent to OT Bryan Bulaga.
    31. Garrett Bradbury

      OL

      N.C. State

      Impressed at the Senior Bowl and the combine. The Rams find a Day 1 starter to replace John Sullivan, whose 2019 option was declined by the club.
    32. Irv Smith

      TE

      Alabama

      While we await word from All-Pro TE Rob Gronkowski on his plans for 2019, the Pats don't pass up a chance to land this talented pass catcher and good blocker who can ascend to the No. 1 role in the near future.
