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

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
Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals
·
Kyler Murray
Kyler Murray
QB, Oklahoma · 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
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers
2020 ·
Nick Bosa
Nick Bosa
DE, Ohio State · 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
New York Jets
New York Jets
·
Ed Oliver
Ed Oliver
DT, Houston · 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
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
·
Quinnen Williams
Quinnen Williams
DT, Alabama · Sophomore (RS)

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

Pick
5
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
·
Josh Allen
Josh Allen
LB, Kentucky · 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
New York Giants
New York Giants
·
Daniel Jones
Daniel Jones
QB, Duke · 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
Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars
·
Jawaan Taylor
Jawaan Taylor
OT, Florida · Junior

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

Pick
8
Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars
·
Jawaan Taylor
Jawaan Taylor
OT, Florida · 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
Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions
·
Jonah Williams
Jonah Williams
OT, Alabama · Junior

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
Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos
·
Devin White
Devin White
LB, LSU · 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
Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals
·
Dwayne Haskins
Dwayne Haskins
QB, Ohio State · Sophomore (RS)

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

Pick
12
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
·
Devin Bush
Devin Bush
LB, Michigan · 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
Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins
·
Rashan Gary
Rashan Gary
LB, Michigan · Junior

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

Pick
14
Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons
·
Greedy Williams
Greedy Williams
CB, LSU · Sophomore (RS)

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

Pick
15
Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins
·
Brian Burns
Brian Burns
DE, Florida State · 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
Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers
·
Andre Dillard
Andre Dillard
OT, Washington State · Senior (RS)

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

Pick
17
New York Giants
New York Giants
·
Montez Sweat
Montez Sweat
LB, Mississippi State · 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
Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings
·
Garrett Bradbury
Garrett Bradbury
C, North Carolina State · 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
Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans
·
Christian Wilkins
Christian Wilkins
DT. Clemson · Senior

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

Pick
20
Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers
·
Lonnie Johnson
Lonnie Johnson
CB, Kentucky · 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
Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks
·
Jeffery Simmons
Jeffery Simmons
DT, Mississippi State · 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
Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens
·
Clelin Ferrell
Clelin Ferrell
DE, Clemson · Junior (RS)

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

Pick
23
Houston Texans
Houston Texans
·
Cody Ford
Cody Ford
OT, Oklahoma · Junior (RS)

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

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

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

Pick
25
Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles
·
Marquise Brown
Marquise Brown
WR, Oklahoma · 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
Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts
·
Johnathan Abram
Johnathan Abram
DB, Mississippi State · 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
Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders
·
Chris Lindstrom
Chris Lindstrom
OL, Boston College · 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
Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers
·
Rock Ya-Sin
Rock Ya-Sin
CB, Temple · 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
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs
·
Byron Murphy
Byron Murphy
CB, Washington · Sophomore (RS)

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

Pick
30
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers
·
Drew Lock
Drew Lock
QB, Missouri · 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
Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams
·
Elgton Jenkins
Elgton Jenkins
C, Mississippi State · 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
New England Patriots
New England Patriots
·
Dexter Lawrence
Dexter Lawrence
DT, Clemson · 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.
