With the 2019 NFL Draft just a little more than a week away, here's my third look at how teams will draft when Round 1 begins in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 25.
  1. Pick No.
    1
    QB
    Oklahoma
    I'm not as confident as I once was that Murray will be the pick here because of all the team visits Murray is taking, but I still think he ends up being Arizona's selection.
  2. Pick No.
    2
    DE
    Ohio St.
    There's a lot of talk about Quinnen Williams going to San Francisco with this pick. I don't think the Niners could go wrong with either him or Bosa.
  3. Pick No.
    3
    DT
    Houston
    Gregg Williams coached Aaron Donald during his time as Rams DC and could easily find a way to utilize Oliver in the Big Apple.
  4. Pick No.
    4
    DT
    Alabama
    The Raiders should take the best player available with needs all over the field.
  5. Pick No.
    5
    EDGE
    Kentucky
    I could see this as a trade-down spot if a team wants to move up for a QB. However, if the Bucs stay here and Allen is still available, he'd be too tempting to pass up.
  6. Pick No.
    6
    QB
    Duke
    If the Giants want a QB, it makes more sense to secure him at No. 6 than leave it to fate and wait until they're on the clock again at No. 17.
  7. Pick No.
    7
    T
    Florida
    Taylor is a DNA match with how the Jaguars want to play. He's a physical player.
  8. Pick No.
    8
    OT
    Alabama
    The Lions have spent a lot of draft capital on the offensive line, but I could see them going back to the well one more time.
  9. Pick No.
    9
    TE
    Iowa
    Hockenson would quickly emerge as the best friend of Josh Allen and LeSean McCoy. He helps in both the passing and running game.
  10. Pick No.
    10
    LB
    LSU
    I know the Broncos have done a lot of homework on the quarterbacks in this draft, but I just can't envision them taking a QB here before they get a chance to see what Joe Flacco looks like in this offense. They go with the top LB available instead.
  11. Pick No.
    11
    QB
    Ohio St.
    New coach and a new era at QB. Haskins would create a spark in an organization that desperately needs one.
  12. Pick No.
    12
    LB
    Michigan
    I think Bush could go much earlier than many people expect due to the combination of his talent and the lack of depth at his position.
  13. Pick No.
    13
    DE
    Michigan
    The Dolphins did not pick an offensive or defensive lineman last year. This draft will be heavy in both for them.
  14. Pick No.
    14
    The Falcons need an upgrade in their secondary. Williams offers an intriguing mix of size and playmaking ability.
  15. Pick No.
    15
    EDGE
    Florida St.
    I still have Washington as the likely landing spot for Josh Rosen, which would take the 'Skins out of the quarterback derby. So, their pass rush took a hit with the departure of Preston Smith. Enter Burns.
  16. Pick No.
    16
    T
    Washington St.
    I can't see Dillard going much later than this spot. Carolina is need of help for the O-line.
  17. Pick No.
    17
    EDGE
    Mississippi St.
    The Giants end up with their edge rusher and quarterback but in the opposite order from what's been expected. Sweat could end up going later than some anticipate.
  18. Pick No.
    18
    C
    N.C. State
    Bradbury was made to play in this Gary Kubiak-style offense. The Vikings will move Pat Elflein to guard to clear a spot for him at center.
  19. Pick No.
    19
    DT
    Clemson
    Wilkins will help the interior pass rush and be a perfect complement to Jurrell Casey.
  20. Pick No.
    20
    CB
    Kentucky
    This is higher than I have Johnson rated, but he's catching a lot of buzz right now and the Steelers have a need at the position.
  21. Pick No.
    21
    DT
    Mississippi St.
    He did suffer an ACL tear in February, but I would not be surprised if Simmons is the best player from this draft class five years from now.
  22. Pick No.
    22
    DE
    Clemson
    Ferrell fits Baltimore's profile. He's physical, tough and has a high floor.
  23. Pick No.
    23
    G
    Oklahoma
    With their pass protection woes, the Texans have to take the best available offensive lineman.
  24. Pick No.
    24
    TE
    Iowa
    Fant would be an upgrade over Jared Cook, the tight end they just lost in free agency.
  25. Pick No.
    25
    WR
    Oklahoma
    It would make sense for the Eagles to add a receiver because I don't think DeSean Jackson's a long-term solution and they could lose Nelson Agholor next year, as he's due to hit free agency.
  26. Pick No.
    26
    S
    Mississippi St.
    Selfishly, I would just love to see him play opposite of Malik Hooker in Indy, where Abram could play in the box and allow Hooker to make plays over the top.
  27. Pick No.
    27
    G
    Boston College
    GM Mike Mayock gets a year pass on donating to his alma mater by taking a fellow Boston College Eagle! All jokes aside, Lindstrom is highly regarded and has a good chance of being picked in the 20s of Round 1.
  28. Pick No.
    28
    CB
    Temple
    There are other needs here -- safety and defensive tackle among them -- but it was apparent that they need to add some talent on the outside based on their performance against the Patriots in the Divisional Round of last season's playoffs.
  29. Pick No.
    29
    CB
    Washington
    Projected trade to Chiefs
    This would be a no-brainer. Kansas City takes the best defensive back still available and gets good value.
  30. Pick No.
    30
    QB
    Missouri
    The Packers have been doing a lot of homework on quarterbacks this draft season. They once spent a first-round pick on a QB who'd become the eventual replacement for a 35-year-old future Hall of Famer, and they repeat history here.
  31. Pick No.
    31
    C
    Mississippi St.
    Jenkins is another player who's made his way into the first-round conversation. Teams love his strength and power inside. He can play any of the three interior positions.
  32. Pick No.
    32
    DT
    Clemson
    While the rest of the league moves away from massive DTs like Lawrence, the Patriots see the value in a dominant run defender who can push the pocket on passing downs.
