Chad Reuter 2019 NFL mock draft 3.0: Drew Lock to Raiders

After spending the weekend in Indianapolis at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, here's my updated look at how Round 1 of this year's NFL draft could play out.

Pick
1
Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals
2020 · 8-8-0
Kyler Murray
Oklahoma · QB

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)

Word is that the Cardinals are indeed shopping Josh Rosen. Maybe trading him would be for the best: New head coach Kliff Kingsbury can get his guy -- he said in the fall, when he was head coach at Texas Tech, that he'd pick Murray No. 1 overall -- and Rosen can get a fresh start in a new city.

Pick
2
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers
Nick Bosa
Ohio State · DE

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior

Bosa wasn't the best athlete at the combine (though he showed real quickness), but he still is the best football player in the class.

Pick
3
New York Giants
New York Giants
Dwayne Haskins
Ohio State · QB

School: Ohio State | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Pick
4
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
Drew Lock
Missouri · QB

School: Missouri | Year: Senior

With the buzz about Oakland's interest in shaking up the QB room lingering, particularly when it comes to Kyler Murray, I would not be surprised if they took a quarterback here, even if Murray is off the board. After all, Jon Gruden coached Drew Lock at the Senior Bowl and praised him for his play that week.

Pick
5
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Devin White
LSU · LB

School: LSU | Year: Junior

With three quarterbacks going in the top four in this scenario, the Bucs get their pick of the top defensive players other than Bosa. They're moving to a 3-4 defense this year and White would lead that group admirably.

Pick
6
New York Jets
New York Jets
Josh Allen
Kentucky · EDGE

School: Kentucky | Year: Senior

Pick
7
Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars
Quinnen Williams
Alabama · DT

School: Alabama | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Signing Nick Foles would give the Jaguars a chance to select the best defender on the board here. Marcell Dareus restructured his deal to stay in Jacksonville, but Malik Jackson may be on his way out.

Pick
8
Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions
Montez Sweat
Mississippi State · EDGE

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior

Sweat scorched the Lucas Oil Stadium turf with his combine workout. The Lions could tab him to replace impending free agent Ziggy Ansah.

Pick
9
Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills
DK Metcalf
Mississippi · WR

School: Mississippi | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Metcalf will win downfield with size and speed, which plays right into Bills second-year quarterback Josh Allen's strengths as a passer.

Pick
10
Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos
Jawaan Taylor
Florida · T

School: Florida | Year: Junior

If John Elway wants his newest quarterback, Joe Flacco, to succeed, he must protect him. Taylor is a beast of a right tackle.

Pick
11
Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals
Devin Bush
Michigan · LB

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

The new regime in Cincinnati may want to start fresh at linebacker. Bush's height (5-foot-11) won't scare them off, especially after the blazing speed (4.43 40) and agility he displayed at the combine last weekend.

Pick
12
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
Jonah Williams
Alabama · OT

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

Green Bay could play Williams at guard or move him to right tackle if Bryan Bulaga is not in their future plans.

Pick
13
Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins
Rashan Gary
Michigan · DE

School: Michigan | Year: Junior

If the Dolphins choose not to pick a quarterback early in this draft (maybe waiting for the 2020 class?), they could find a young, athletic pass rusher in Gary.

Pick
14
Houston Texans
Houston Texans
Ed Oliver
Houston · DT

School: Houston | Year: Junior

It appears Oliver's stock did not get a boost coming out of the combine. The Falcons could get a bargain here, though, pairing Oliver's quickness with Grady Jarrett, who received the franchise tag, in the middle of their defense.

Pick
15
Washington Football Team
Washington Football Team
Brian Burns
Florida State · EDGE

School: Florida State | Year: Junior

Burns' ability to add 20 pounds of weight and still move very well at the combine may have earned him some fans among teams that need edge rushers in their 3-4 schemes (like Washington).

Pick
16
Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers
2020 · 5-11-0
Clelin Ferrell
Clemson · DE

School: Clemson | Year: Junior (RS)

Ferrell would be a great addition to the Panthers' defense following the retirement of Julius Peppers.

Pick
17
Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns
Christian Wilkins
Clemson · DT

School: Clemson | Year: Senior

The Browns have to pinch themselves when they find an all-around talent like Wilkins to pair with Larry Ogunjobi on the interior D-line.

Pick
18
Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings
Garrett Bradbury
N.C. State · C

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

If the Panthers don't pick Bradbury at No. 16 to replace Ryan Kalil, then Minnesota should pounce on him. Moving Pat Elflein to guard to clear a spot for Bradbury would make sense.

Pick
19
Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans
T.J. Hockenson
Iowa · TE

School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore (RS)

Pick
20
Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers
Deandre Baker
Georgia · CB

School: Georgia | Year: Senior

Baker's a tough-minded ballhawk who seems to fit the Steelers' mold for the position.

Pick
21
Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks
Johnathan Abram
Mississippi State · S

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior

Abram cemented a first-round slot with a nice combine. He'll be a high-character leader for the team that picks him up.

Pick
22
Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens
N'Keal Harry
Arizona State · WR

School: Arizona State | Year: Junior

Harry proved his athleticism at the combine. The Ravens need a big receiver who can win downfield, so they should consider him in the first round.

Pick
23
Houston Texans
Houston Texans
Andre Dillard
Washington State · T

School: Washington State | Year: Senior (RS)

Dillard might go earlier than this, but I won't be stunned if quarterbacks and elite defensive prospects push the tackle down a bit, giving the Texans a nice steal.

Pick
24
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
Noah Fant
Iowa · TE

School: Iowa | Year: Junior

Pick
25
Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles
Josh Jacobs
Alabama · RB

School: Alabama | Year: Junior

If no team is willing to use an earlier pick on a talented running back like Jacobs, the Eagles will reap the benefits from having such a powerful presence in the backfield.

Pick
26
Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts
Dexter Lawrence
Clemson · DT

School: Clemson | Year: Junior

Lawrence's quickness and size give the Colts a stout force in the middle.

Pick
27
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
2020 · 8-8-0
Chris Lindstrom
Boston College · G

School: Boston College | Year: Senior

Pick
28
Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers
Kaleb McGary
Washington · T

School: Washington | Year: Senior (RS)

Despite McGary's lack of length, he's a powerful and athletic player who will help the Chargers secure the right side of the line the way Braden Smith did for the Colts in 2018.

Pick
29
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs
Byron Murphy
Washington · CB

School: Washington | Year: Sophomore (RS)

The Chiefs may need bodies at the cornerback position. Murphy is not the fastest or biggest defender, but he does not back down from a challenge and showed the best hands in the defensive back class at the combine.

Pick
30
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
Jaylon Ferguson
Louisiana Tech · EDGE

School: Louisiana Tech | Year: Senior (RS)

In 2018, the Saints traded into Green Bay's spot in Round 1 to select non-Power Five pass rusher Marcus Davenport. The Packers could then turn around and use this pick acquired from the Saints to select a similar player in Ferguson to meet a team need one year later.

Pick
31
Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams
Erik McCoy
Texas A&M · C

School: Texas A&M | Year: Junior (RS)

The Rams did not pick up the option on incumbent starting center John Sullivan. McCoy's a sturdy pivot who will take care of Jared Goff and produce space for the team's running backs.

Pick
32
New England Patriots
New England Patriots
Daniel Jones
Duke · QB

School: Duke | Year: Junior (RS)

The Patriots could select Jones as their future starter here or another team could trade up from the second round for his services, given that the fifth-year option is attached to first-rounders.
