With the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine in the rearview mirror, teams will be adjusting their draft boards based on the intel they gathered in Indianapolis. Some prospects helped or hurt themselves this past week. However, the event is only one piece to the evaluation puzzle. Keep in mind that free agency, which begins next week, will have a big impact on the draft outlook for teams. Here's the latest iteration of how I think the first round could play out.
  1. Pick No.
    1
    QB
    Oklahoma
    The Cardinals fully commit to Kliff Kingsbury and his vision in this scenario, which will lead the team to trade Josh Rosen.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    DE
    Ohio St.
    This couldn't have worked out better for the 49ers. They're looking for an edge rusher and they get the best one in the draft.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    DT
    Alabama
    Putting Quinnen Williams next to Leonard Williams will give the Jets one of the best interior D-lines in the NFL.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    EDGE
    Kentucky
    The Raiders have needs all over the field, but none more important than their pass rush. Allen fits the bill.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    EDGE
    Mississippi St.
    No prospect has helped himself more since the season ended than Sweat. He followed up a great Senior Bowl showing with a huge combine.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    QB
    Ohio St.
    The Giants went public with their admiration of the Chiefs' handling of Patrick Mahomes, who sat for a year behind Alex Smith. The Giants could do the same thing here with Haskins and Eli Manning.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    T
    Florida
    The Jaguars need to get back to their physical brand of football, and Taylor has the flexibility to play guard or tackle.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    DE
    Michigan
    Gary is an explosive player who should be able to move up and down the line for the Lions.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    WR
    Mississippi
    The Bills would like to find a big, fast wide receiver and they don't much come bigger or faster than Metcalf.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    T
    Washington St.
    Dillard would address a major need for the Broncos and would excel under the tutelage of new O-line coach Mike Munchak.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    LB
    LSU
    White could be the face of the Bengals' defense for the next decade. One of the cleanest players in the draft.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    TE
    Iowa
    The Packers give Aaron Rodgers a younger version of Jimmy Graham.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    T
    Alabama
    The Dolphins need to address the offensive line. I believe Williams will quickly emerge as a top interior lineman.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    EDGE
    Florida St.
    Burns put on the necessary weight in the offseason and had a phenomenal combine workout.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    QB
    Missouri
    Washington must address the QB position. However, if Josh Rosen does indeed become available, that could point them in a different direction with this pick.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    OL
    N.C. State
    My comp for Bradbury is Ryan Kalil. He could take over for Kalil in the middle of Carolina's O-line.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    WR
    Oklahoma
    Projected trade to Browns
    I would love to see Brown reunite with his Oklahoma teammate Baker Mayfield. They created some fireworks in college, and we'd see them in Cleveland, too.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    LB
    Michigan
    Anthony Barr is a free agent. Bush is a three-down linebacker with outstanding playmaking skills and leadership ability.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    DT
    Clemson
    Pairing Wilkins with Jurrell Casey would give the Titans one of the better inside pass-rush duos in the league.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    The Steelers need to address the corner position. Williams has an intriguing blend of size, speed and ball skills.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    DT
    Houston
    It's tough to identify the right landing spot for Oliver, but the Seahawks have had a front-row seat to see how an undersized pass rusher can take over a game when they've lined up against Aaron Donald twice a year. Oliver would be a nice player to pair with DT Jarran Reed.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    WR
    Ohio St.
    Look for the Ravens to build a track team around Lamar Jackson. Campbell had an outstanding workout at the combine, displaying mature route-running skills.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    TE
    Iowa
    The Texans need to do a better job of protecting Deshaun Watson. Hockenson will help improve the run game and he'll provide some easy completions for the QB.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    T
    Oklahoma
    We'll see what the Raiders decide to do with cut candidate Kelechi Osemele. Ford would be able to plug and play at guard.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    RB
    Alabama
    This would be a dream scenario for the Eagles. Jacobs is the best back in the draft.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    WR
    Arizona State
    The only question about Harry was his speed and he alleviated those concerns at the combine (4.53 40).
  27. Pick No.
    27
    CB
    Washington
    Murphy had the best field workout of any of the corners at the combine. I love his toughness and ball skills.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    S
    Delaware
    Adderley is the perfect complement to Derwin James.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    S
    Washington
    The Chiefs need to upgrade the secondary and Rapp is one of the more consistent, reliable players in the draft.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    OL
    Texas A&M
    McCoy can play all three interior positions and would be a Day 1 starter for the Packers.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    S
    Mississippi St.
    Lamarcus Joyner is due to become a free agent, so the Rams might need to address the safety position. Abram plays in the same fast, physical manner as the rest of this Rams defense.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    DE
    Clemson
    Ferrell can set the edge in the run game and he's a very powerful pass rusher. He'd look good in New England.
