Daniel Jeremiah 2019 NFL mock draft 3.0: Drew Lock to Packers

Print

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.

PICK

1

Kyler Murray - QB

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

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.

PICK

2

Nick Bosa - Edge

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior

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.

PICK

3

Ed Oliver - DT

School: Houston | Year: Junior

Gregg Williams coached Aaron Donald during his time as Rams DC and could easily find a way to utilize Oliver in the Big Apple.

PICK

4

Quinnen Williams - DT

School: Alabama | Year: Sophomore (RS)

With needs all over the field, the Raiders should take the best player available.

PICK

5

Josh Allen - Edge

School: Kentucky | Year: Senior

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.

PICK

6

Daniel Jones - QB

School: Duke | Year: Junior (RS)

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.

PICK

7

Jawaan Taylor - OT

School: Florida | Year: Junior

Taylor is a DNA match with how the Jaguars want to play. He's a physical player.

PICK

8

Jonah Williams - OG

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Detroit has spent a lot of draft capital on the offensive line, but I could see the Lions going back to the well one more time.

PICK

9

T.J. Hockenson - TE

School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Hockenson would quickly emerge as the best friend of Josh Allen and LeSean McCoy. He helps in both the passing and running games.

PICK

10

Devin White - LB

School: LSU | Year: Junior

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. Instead, they go with the top LB available.

PICK

11

Dwayne Haskins - QB

School: Ohio State | Year: Sophomore (RS)

New coach and a new era at QB. Haskins would create a spark in an organization that desperately needs one.

PICK

12

Devin Bush - LB

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

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.

PICK

13

Rashan Gary - Edge

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

The Dolphins did not pick an offensive or defensive lineman last year. This draft will be heavy in both for them.

PICK

14

Greedy Williams - CB

School: LSU | Year: Sophomore (RS)

The Falcons need an upgrade in their secondary. Williams offers an intriguing mix of size and playmaking ability.

PICK

15

Brian Burns - Edge

School: Florida State | Year: Junior

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.

PICK

16

Andre Dillard - OT

School: Washington State | Year: Senior (RS)

I can't see Dillard going much later than this spot. Carolina needs help on the O-line.

PICK

17

Montez Sweat - Edge

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior

The Giants end up with their edge rusher and quarterback -- but in the opposite order from what's been expected. Sweat could go later than some anticipate.

PICK

18

Garrett Bradbury - C

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

Bradbury was made to play in this Gary Kubiak-style offense. The Vikings will move Pat Elflein to guard to clear a spot for the rookie at center.

PICK

19

Christian Wilkins - DT

School: Clemson | Year: Senior

Wilkins will help the interior pass rush and be a perfect complement to Jurrell Casey.

PICK

20

Lonnie Johnson Jr. - CB

School: Kentucky | Year: Senior

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.

PICK

21

Jeffery Simmons - DT

School: Mississippi State | Year: Junior

He did suffer an ACL tear in February, but I would not be surprised if, five years from now, Simmons is viewed as the best player from this draft class.

PICK

22

Clelin Ferrell - Edge

School: Clemson | Year: Junior (RS)

Ferrell fits Baltimore's profile. He's physical, tough and has a high floor.

PICK

23

Cody Ford - OT

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

With their pass-protection woes, the Texans have to take the best available offensive lineman.

PICK

24

Noah Fant- TE

School: Iowa | Year: Junior

Fant would be an upgrade over Jared Cook, the tight end they just lost in free agency.

PICK

25

Marquise Brown - WR

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior

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.

PICK

26

Johnathan Abram - S

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior

Selfishly, I would just love to see him play opposite Malik Hooker in Indy. Abram could play in the box and allow Hooker to make plays over the top.

PICK

27

Chris Lindstrom - OG

School: Boston College | Year: Senior

GM Mike Mayock gets a year pass on donating to his alma mater by taking a fellow Eagle! All jokes aside, Lindstrom is highly regarded and has a good chance of being picked in the 20s of Round 1.

PICK

28

Rock Ya-Sin - CB

School: Temple | Year: Senior

There are other needs here -- safety and defensive tackle among them -- but it was apparent that the Bolts need to add some talent on the outside based on their performance against the Patriots in the Divisional Round of last season's playoffs.

PICK

29

Byron Murphy - CB

School: Washington | Year: Sophomore (RS)

This would be a no-brainer. Kansas City takes the best defensive back still available and gets good value.

PICK

30

Drew Lock - QB

School: Missouri | Year: Senior

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.

PICK

31

Elgton Jenkins - OG

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior (RS)

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.

PICK

32

Dexter Lawrence - DT

School: Clemson | Year: Junior

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.
