Charley Casserly 2019 NFL mock draft 2.0: Giants, Patriots go QB

Print

With the Arizona Cardinals a little more than two weeks away from being on the clock at the 2019 NFL Draft, here's my second mock up of how Round 1 might play out on April 25.

PICK

1

Kyler Murray - QB

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury gets the quarterback to lead his Air Raid offense.

PICK

2

Nick Bosa - Edge

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior

The 49ers get a bookend to pair with Dee Ford, giving them a legitimate pass rush.

PICK

3

Josh Allen - Edge

School: Kentucky | Year: Senior

The Jets need a pass rusher, but I wouldn't be surprised if they traded out of this pick.

PICK

4

Rashan Gary - Edge

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

The Raiders' only chance to get a premier edge rusher is here, not in the 20s.

PICK

5

Devin White - LB

School: LSU | Year: Junior

He's an instinctive football player who can make plays from sideline to sideline.

PICK

6

Quinnen Williams - DT

School: Alabama | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Giants GM Dave Gettleman stays true to his draft board and takes the best player available.

PICK

7

Jawaan Taylor - OT

School: Florida | Year: Junior

The Jaguars want to be physical up front and run the ball, and Taylor allows them to do that. Look for them to address their tight end need later in the draft.

PICK

8

Montez Sweat - Edge

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior

PROJECTED TRADE WITH LIONS. The pass rushers are flying off the board, and the Panthers need one.

PICK

9

Andre Dillard - OT

School: Washington State | Year: Senior (RS)

If I were the Bills, I'd move Dion Dawkins to right tackle and slide Dillard -- the best pass blocker in the draft -- in at left tackle.

PICK

10

T.J. Hockenson - TE

School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Joe Flacco loves throwing to tight ends, but I could also see the Broncos taking a quarterback here.

PICK

11

Devin Bush - LB

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

Bengals fill a major need on defense with the athletic Bush.

PICK

12

Cody Ford - OT

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

The Packers need an upgrade at right tackle.

PICK

13

Dwayne Haskins - QB

School: Ohio State | Year: Sophomore (RS)

PROJECTED TRADE WITH DOLPHINS. The Giants jump ahead of the Redskins to get Eli Manning's successor.

PICK

14

Ed Oliver - DT

School: Houston | Year: Junior

Pass-rushing defensive tackles are a major priority for the Falcons.

PICK

15

Clelin Ferrell - Edge

School: Clemson | Year: Junior (RS)

The Redskins have been looking for a pass rusher to play opposite Ryan Kerrigan for years.

PICK

16

Deandre Baker - CB

School: Georgia | Year: Senior

PROJECTED TRADE WITH PANTHERS. The Lions fill their biggest need and pick up some extra draft capital in the process.

PICK

17

Christian Wilkins - DT

School: Clemson | Year: Senior

PROJECTED TRADE WITH GIANTS. Wilkins gives the Dolphins a playmaker on the inside of their defense.

PICK

18

Jonah Williams - OL

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

The Vikings address one of their most glaring weaknesses by picking Williams, who can play left tackle or left guard.

PICK

19

D.K. Metcalf - WR

School: Mississippi | Year: Sophomore (RS)

The Titans' offense has a lot of pieces, but it's still lacking a true speed receiver on the perimeter -- Metcalf would give them that. They also need to address the interior O-line, but I think they can do that in Round 2.

PICK

20

Byron Murphy - CB

School: Washington | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Murphy is an excellent technician at the position, helping to bolster the Steelers' secondary.

PICK

21

Brian Burns - Edge

School: Florida State | Year: Junior

The Seahawks add a pass rusher opposite Frank Clark, who's currently set to play the 2019 season on the franchise tag.

PICK

22

Greg Little - OT

School: Mississippi | Year: Junior

PROJECTED TRADE WITH RAVENS. The foundation of the Eagles' recent success has been the strength of their O-line, so adding a quality player here helps now and for the future.

PICK

23

Rock Ya-Sin - CB

School: Temple | Year: Senior

The Texans lose out on an offensive lineman with the Eagles' savvy trade, but rebound by selecting Ya-Sin to fill a need at CB.

PICK

24

Irv Smith Jr. - TE

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and Irv Smith with Derek Carr! The Raiders have made a lot of moves this offseason to become a better football team.

PICK

25

Marquise Brown - WR

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior

PROJECTED TRADE WITH EAGLES. Ravens grab a WR who can stretch the defense and play in the slot.

PICK

26

A.J. Brown - WR

School: Mississippi | Year: Junior

Brown will fill the slot for the Colts, but he can also play outside, too.

PICK

27

Dexter Lawrence - DT

School: Clemson | Year: Junior

The Raiders continue to re-build their defensive line by taking the third Clemson Tiger in Round 1.

PICK

28

Daniel Jones - QB

School: Duke | Year: Junior (RS)

The Chargers find Philip Rivers' heir by selecting the most pro-ready quarterback prospect in the 2019 draft class.

PICK

29

Garrett Bradbury - C

School: N.C. State | Year: Senior (RS)

The top defensive players are gone, so the Chiefs upgrade their O-line.

PICK

30

Taylor Rapp - S

School: Washington | Year: Junior

Safety was a major problem for the Packers last year, but Rapp and free-agent pickup Adrian Amos are the solution.

PICK

31

Jerry Tillery - DL

School: Notre Dame | Year: Senior

The Rams take the best defensive lineman prospect left on the board. Michael Brockers can shift inside to play nose tackle, while Tillery lines up at defensive end.

PICK

32

Drew Lock - QB

School: Missouri | Year: Senior

Tom Brady can play until he is 45 and then Lock will take over!
