Daniel Jeremiah 2019 NFL mock draft 2.0: Cards go Kyler Murray

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.

Rank
1
Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals
2019
Kyler Murray
Oklahoma · QB

The Cardinals fully commit to Kliff Kingsbury and his vision in this scenario, which will lead the team to trade Josh Rosen.

Rank
2
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers
2019
Nick Bosa
Ohio State · DE

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.

Rank
3
New York Jets
New York Jets
2019
Quinnen Williams
Alabama · DT

Putting Quinnen Williams next to Leonard Williams will give the Jets one of the best interior D-lines in the NFL.

Rank
4
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
2019
Josh Allen
Kentucky · EDGE

The Raiders have needs all over the field, but none more important than their pass rush. Allen fits the bill.

Rank
5
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2019
Montez Sweat
Mississippi State · EDGE

No prospect has helped himself more since the season ended than Sweat. He followed up a great Senior Bowl showing with a huge combine.

Rank
6
New York Giants
New York Giants
2019
Dwayne Haskins
Ohio State · QB

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.

Rank
7
Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars
2019
Jawaan Taylor
Florida · T

The Jaguars need to get back to their physical brand of football, and Taylor has the flexibility to play guard or tackle.

Rank
8
Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions
2019
Rashan Gary
Michigan · DE

Gary is an explosive player who should be able to move up and down the line for the Lions.

Rank
9
Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills
2019
DK Metcalf
Mississippi · WR

The Bills would like to find a big, fast wide receiver and they don't much come bigger or faster than Metcalf.

Rank
10
Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos
2019
Andre Dillard
Washington State · T

Dillard would address a major need for the Broncos and would excel under the tutelage of new O-line coach Mike Munchak.

Rank
11
Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals
2019
Devin White
LSU · LB

White could be the face of the Bengals' defense for the next decade. One of the cleanest players in the draft.

Rank
12
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
2019
Noah Fant
Iowa · TE

The Packers give Aaron Rodgers a younger version of Jimmy Graham.

Rank
13
Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins
2019
Jonah Williams
Alabama · OT

The Dolphins need to address the offensive line. I believe Williams will quickly emerge as a top interior lineman.

Rank
14
Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons
2019
Brian Burns
Florida State · EDGE

Burns put on the necessary weight in the offseason and had a phenomenal combine workout.

Rank
15
Washington Football Team
Washington Football Team
2019
Drew Lock
Missouri · QB

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.

Rank
16
Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers
2019
Garrett Bradbury
N.C. State · C

My comp for Bradbury is Ryan Kalil. He could take over for Kalil in the middle of Carolina's O-line.

Rank
17
Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns
2019
Marquise Brown
Oklahoma · WR

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.

Rank
18
Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings
2019
Devin Bush
Michigan · LB

[Anthony Barr](/player/anthonybarr/2543459/profile) is a free agent. Bush is a three-down linebacker with outstanding playmaking skills and leadership ability.

Rank
19
Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans
2019
Christian Wilkins
Clemson · DT

Pairing Wilkins with Jurrell Casey would give the Titans one of the better inside pass-rush duos in the league.

Rank
20
Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers
2019
Greedy Williams
LSU · CB

The Steelers need to address the corner position. Williams has an intriguing blend of size, speed and ball skills.

Rank
21
Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks
2019
Ed Oliver
Houston · DT

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.

Rank
22
Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens
2019
Parris Campbell
Ohio State · WR

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.

Rank
23
Houston Texans
Houston Texans
2019
T.J. Hockenson
Iowa · TE

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.

Rank
24
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
2019
Cody Ford
Oklahoma · G

We'll see what the Raiders decide to do with cut candidate Kelechi Osemele. Ford would be able to plug and play at guard.

Rank
25
Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles
2019
Josh Jacobs
Alabama · RB

This would be a dream scenario for the Eagles. Jacobs is the best back in the draft.

Rank
26
Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts
2019
N'Keal Harry
Arizona State · WR

The only question about Harry was his speed and he alleviated those concerns at the combine (4.53 40).

Rank
27
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
2019
Byron Murphy
Washington · CB

Murphy had the best field workout of any of the corners at the combine. I love his toughness and ball skills.

Rank
28
Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers
2019
Nasir Adderley
Delaware · S

Adderley is the perfect complement to Derwin James.

Rank
29
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs
2019
Taylor Rapp
Washington · S

The Chiefs need to upgrade the secondary and Rapp is one of the more consistent, reliable players in the draft.

Rank
30
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
2019
Erik McCoy
Texas A&M · C

McCoy can play all three interior positions and would be a Day 1 starter for the Packers.

Rank
31
Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams
2019
Johnathan Abram
Mississippi State · S

[Lamarcus Joyner](/player/lamarcusjoyner/2543492/profile) is due to become a free agent, so the [Rams](/teams/losangelesrams/profile?team=LA) might need to address the safety position. Abram plays in the same fast, physical manner as the rest of this [Rams](/teams/losangelesrams/profile?team=LA) defense.

Rank
32
New England Patriots
New England Patriots
2019
Clelin Ferrell
Clemson · DE

Ferrell can set the edge in the run game and he's a very powerful pass rusher. He'd look good in New England.
