2019 NFL Mock Draft #7

February 20, 2019 2:30 AM EST
  • EDGEers Bosa, Ferrell, Allen, Polite, Sweat, Burns and Ximines look to build RD1 cred at the Combine
  • Giants, Dolphins take QBs Haskins, Murray
  • "Best of CMD#6" the top-5 comments from last week's mock.

GM Steve Keim has already been busy this offseason. The Cardinals addressed a big need by signing CB Robert Alford to a three-year deal worth up to $24 million. Arizona also added EDGE Brooks Reed on a one-year contract for a reported $2 million. The addition of Alford appears to solidify the secondary, especially considering that Arizona is expected to line up in a base defense more frequently next season. Alford should pair nicely with CB Patrick Peterson, while Budda Baker, Antoine Bethea, and D.J. Swearinger will compete for snaps at Safety.

Nick Bosa remains the heavy favorite to be the top choice for the Cardinals come April. Bosa appears to be 100% healthy heading into the Combine after a prolonged recovery from core muscle surgery. If Bosa can test well, it will cement him as the top overall prospect following a career that saw him register 17.5 sacks and 29 TFL in 29 games at Ohio State. Though Bosa lined up primarily as a 4-3 DE for the Buckeyes, DC Vance Joseph thinks Bosa can make the transition from college DE to pro EDGE much like Bradley Chubb did for the Broncos last season. If Bosa could post double-digit sacks as a rookie, it could go a long way towards a successful transition back to a 3-4 scheme in Arizona.

Much like Tom Cruise's character, Maverick, in the 1986 classic film, Top Gun, the 49ers' pass rush felt a need during the 2018 season, a need for speed. And when it comes to speed off the edge, Kentucky's Josh Allen is this draft class' top gun.

While the Niners haven't been shy about adding speed on the offensive side of the ball, their defensive line choices have been more about power and quickness. Allen's explosive burst and top-end speed would add a new wrinkle to the defensive game plan, forcing opposing offenses to choose between slowing down Allen on the outside and double-teaming DeForest Buckner inside.

The 21-year-old linebacker is far from a finished product, but he's a film junkie, with a tireless work ethic and immense upside, making 49ers' pass-rush specialist coach, Chris Kiffin, just the guy to put the final polish on his game. Though his pass rush accumen is what could make him the number 2-overall pick, Allen also deploys his speed as a solid run defender and is capable of dropping back in coverage when asked.

With the 3rd-lowest sack total in league history, priority #1 for the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft is bolstering the pass rush. Unfortunately, the draft's top 1, 2, and 3 rushers are taken in succession ahead of Oakland's pick at #4, which leaves a difficult choice for Gruden and Mayock. Do they fall in love with and select our board's #2-overall prospect, Quinnen Williams? It's certainly possible, but the franchise is already heavily invested in the position.

It's most promising defender, Mo Hurst, was drafted in the 5th round last year. They also drafted P.J. Hall in RD2, and Jelly Ellis has a greater cap hit than all but 7 of his teammates --an investment indicative of the team's plan to keep him in a significant role. Should the front office believe this is too high for the one-year wonder at DT, top corner Greedy Williams makes sense as someone who improves the rush by creating an impressive cornerback duo with 2017 first-rounder Gareon Conley.

The other 2 options here are 1) ending the Carr Era by drafting Haskins or Murray (which would be a poor decision, in my opinion) or 2) trading down with an eye on prospects like Rashan Gary, D.K. Metcalf, or Devin White.

5 Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay NFL Mock Draft
Jonah Williams NFL Draft Jonah Williams

    Reach/Value:     -4

At the time of this writing, last week's poll ranks heavily in favor of drafting DE Josh Allen IF he is available (40.2%). OT Jonah Williams (my preferred pick) collected 22.8% of votes. Is there a scenario where Allen could fall to the Bucs? In this mock, all of the "big-3" Edgers are selected 1-2-3, and another potential Buc target, Greedy Williams, is selected at #4 by the Raiders - who would also like an Edge rusher to replace Khalil Mack. In fact, all the teams picking #1-4 have a high need at Edge, with the exception of the Cardinals, who wouldn't pass up BPA Bosa.

The wildcard involves the QBs, Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray. How high will teams (NYG, JAX, DEN, WAS, maybe CIN and MIA) trade up to secure these two? If two teams trade into the Top 5 for the QBs, that will make two players available to Tampa Bay who currently aren't --nominally Ferrell and Greedy. So, unless Allen and/or Bosa lay an egg at the Combine, I'd expect those two to be unavailable at #5 in any scenario.

Buc fans may take solace in the drafting of Jonah Williams [scouting highlights]. They may cry in their beers as Jameis Winston surveys the field in the comfort of an impenetrable pocket, and the 2019 RB contingent rambles for 4.7 ypc behind an upgraded OL. So sad!

Boy, Tom Coughlin sure abandoned ship at the right time. The team has eight wins in the last two seasons combined, has had coaching uncertainty, drama galore, and still employs a starting quarterback that was shaving when the Internet was invented. If a team ever needed to be dynamited and rebuilt, it's the Giants.

In this week's CMD, The Rebuild begins as the Giants go All-In for Sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins. In 2018 (Haskins' lone year of full-time-duty), he racked up an impressive 4,831 YDS, 50 TD, and only 8 INT...good for a QB rating of 174.1. While no one doubts Haskins' success in college (brief as it was), the history of Ohio State QBs in the NFL is troubling. Like QBs from Alabama, it's tough to evaluate how these guys will fare in the NFL when they spend their whole college career playing behind dominant O-Lines, and throwing from nice comfy pockets that are rarely encroached upon.

Conversely, the Giants have a poor O-Line, generously ranked 21st by Pro Football Focus. The Giants are in a tough position where they are almost forced to take this gamble after passing on QBs in previous drafts. Still, knowing the defense needs work too, I'd be awfully tempted to take Quinnen Williams here (selected immediately after this spot), as many feel he's the best player in this draft.

Since our last mock draft, Denver traded for Joe Flacco . This is going to have serious implications for the veteran QB market. As noted last week, these veterans don't preclude any of these teams from drafting a QB, including Denver, who is picking 10th. Given the heavy demand this year, and relatively weaker supply, the Jags will need to be sure of their guy.

If Dwayne Haskins is the guy, it looks like they'll is going to need to move up. Drew Lock has prototypical size and arm talent, but he was inconsistent. Kyler Murray is undersized, and comes from an Air Raid offense, which NFL teams don't usually trust. Daniel Jones' performance is tricky to evaluate on a team that usually was less-talented than their opponents. These last 3 prospects should be there at Pick #7, but their question marks will need to be considered.

As always, the tough part with gambling on a QB is to pass on another blue-chip talent, that may be safer, in order to take this giant risk. The rub in this mock draft is that Quinnen Williams is available, and I think he's the best player in the draft. Everyone is looking for the next Aaron Donald, and while that search is a waste of time, Williams is remarkably slippery, and has the elite physical attributes to consistently push the pocket. The Jaguars do need a QB, but a stud interior rusher and a veteran QB will maximize 2019 and 2020, and though that is short-term, if the franchise guy isn't there, may as well maximize the short-term.

8 Detroit

Back again this week with Alabama Safety Deionte Thompson as news broke last week that veteran Glover Quin was released from his duties. As we've highlighted many times in these mock drafts, even dating back to last season, the Lions need to get younger in their defensive backfield. The Quin release is a clear-cut sign that Lions' GM Bob Quinn sees this need for youth, speed, and playmaking ability, too. "We thank Glover for his countless contributions to the Detroit Lions during his six seasons with our team...Since joining the organization in 2013, Glover exemplified everything it means to be a true professional in this league --as both a competitor on the field and a leading voice in the community", said Quinn.

All of this to say that Thompson would have a lot to live up to on the field and off the field, but as talented as he is, aided by veterans like Quandre Diggs and Darius Slay, along with a defensive-minded Head Coach, Thompson has all the assets he would need in order to make an impact and properly groom into an anchor in the defensive backfield for Detroit for years to come. Some may argue to go defensive line here, and that's still a possibility for Detroit, but given the more immediate need now with the Glover Quin void, it seems likely Detroit addresses its secondary earlier rather than later in the Draft.

9 Buffalo

Ed Oliver NFL Draft Ed Oliver

    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:

There are likely only 3 players that GM Brandon Beane would draft at #9 without debate. All of them are defensive linemen, and Ed Oliver should be one of them. Oliver leads all draftable iDL in two stats, Sacks per Game Played (Career) and Tackles For Loss Per Game Played (Career), and it's not even close. His 1.66 tackles for loss in his 32 games crushes Quinnen Williams's 1.08 and Daniel Wise's 1.07 rates among Day 1 and Day 2 defensive linemen.

Why are these stats so important? Kyle Williams' pressure up the middle was helpful, but Buffalo still was 6th-worst in sacks in 2018 with 36, despite being effective on the back end in passes defended and yards per pass attempt. Oliver's quick get-off, lateral agility, and strength have been compared to Warren Sapp's, and his work ethic and hustle will take that DL room up a notch. Book him, Beano!

Rashan Gary NFL Draft Rashan Gary

    Reach/Value:     -5

I stuck with Rashan Gary in this week's mock draft because I do believe Vic Fangio intends to get this defensive back to the top of the league at stopping the pass, and Gary can be a part of that. With his experience in college playing both inside and out, he could be groomed as five-technique in the base defense, and then rotate between tackle and end in the nickel. And let's be honest, giving Fangio one of the most gifted players in this draft, who just happens to be a pass rusher, is never a bad idea. Still, as the start of the league year draws nearer, their options are likely to expand. For instance, the Broncos have already informed linebacker Brandon Marshall that he won't be back next year.

I strongly considered Devin White for that reason. Bradley Roby also headlines Denver's long list of 2019 free agents, so a corner could be a possibility as well. Obviously, quarterback and offensive linemen are major concerns, and the options are starting to make me consider their chances of trading down.

To this point, I have only considered moving up in the draft to try and get their hands on Dwayne Haskins, but if he is gone and the Broncos are sold on Kyler Murray or Drew Lock, exchanging picks with a team that is could be the wisest move. Denver could gain an extra pick or two which will help accelerate this rebuild, and still get a player that helps right away.

Selecting pass rushers in the NFL Draft comes at a premium. In this CMD, 21 EDGE rushers were selected through the full seven rounds. Of those 21 EDGE players, 20 were graded as reaches. The only outlier is Nick Bosa, our top prospect, who is slotted as the top-overall pick with a reach/value rating of 0. The average reach for EDGE players throughout the current CMD is -16. The conclusion that I'm drawing from these stats is that Montez Sweat, a "Reach" of -1, is actually one of the best "values" of the Draft.

Montez Sweat is coming off back-to-back seasons of racking up sacks in the SEC. In his two seasons at Mississippi State, Sweat has totaled 22.5 sacks and 30 TFL in one of the nation's most talented conferences. Sweat is a big-framed pass rusher that wins with first-step quickness and advanced hand placement. With Clay Matthews hitting Free Agency and Nick Perry a perennial candidate to land on IR, the Packers need a pass rusher that can win in one-on-one situations. GM Brian Gutekunst may be forced to address the EDGE position with his top pick in RD1. If Sweat is still on the board at #12, the Packers should be thrilled to add him to the mix of possible solutions at a position of need.

Ryan Tannehill started his career in Miami on a high-note, appearing and starting in sixty-four consecutive games without a significant injury. Since the end of the 2015 season, Tannehill has missed 24 contests. He has sustained two major ACL tears since, and a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder this past season. According to SportsInjuryPredictor.com, Tannehill currently has a 31.6% chance of getting injured again during the 2019 season. For a franchise that is looking for someone else to steer the ship, and just hired an entirely new coaching staff, sticking with a quarterback with this kind of a down-side seems unlikely.

Upper management should be looking to change the dynamic of their offense and take a chance on Heisman Trophy Winner, Kyler Murray. Murray is coming off a phenomenal season where led Oklahoma to the college football playoffs. He surpassed Baker Mayfield for total touchdowns in a season, as well as in passing efficieny. Mayfield, if you have not noticed, is thriving in the NFL right now. The two do not have a significant difference in credentials, and on top of that, Murray is faster and more explosive. Now that he has fully committed to football, a team, possibly the Dolphins, will take a high-risk, high-reward gamble on Kyler Murray.

Let's begin by admitting that Atlanta is unlikely to spend its first-round capital on a cornerback, given their stated desire to "improve in the trenches" on both sides of the ball. However, we have to look at the current state of the roster, and right now that roster is very, very thin at CB. Robert Alford is now a Cardinal and Brian Poole looks to be headed to Free Agency. That leaves Desmond Trufant, second-year player Isaiah Oliver, and free safety Damontae Kazee as the only CBs on the roster. Given than Rico Allen is coming back from a torn Achilles, there is no guarantee that Kazee won't be needed at FS. Combine that with Trufant's proximity to the age of 30, and suddenly CB looks like a bigger need.

If you are going to pick a CB in this draft, it should probably be Byron Murphy. While he lacks the length of Isaiah Oliver, he's a "ballhawk" and that's Quinn's favorite buzzword in the secondary. Despite Murphy's small stature, he is willing to lay the boom. If he has a strong Combine, he might be a Top-10 pick.

In this week's DraftTek DRAFTSIM, the Carolina Panthers don't just draft a player, they choose to make a statement. That statement being we dare you, nay, we DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU to run the football on Dexter Lawrence! It's not every day that you see a 6' 5", 340-pound behemoth of a human being move with the fluidity and athleticism of Lawrence. He is much more than just a space-eating Moai statue. At Clemson, the true junior played most of his reps as a 1-technique defensive tackle in a 4-3 alignment. But don't be surprised if a team decides to try his hand as a 3-tech, as Lawrence has shown the ability to do so while rushing the passer effectively.

As a true freshman being coached under Brent Venables' defense in Death Valley, the big man erupted onto the scene with a season that saw him garner 6.5 sacks and 62 total tackles en route to a national championship for the Tigers. Lawrence's numbers since have not been quite as gaudy, but 3 seasons' worth of film prove he is a magnet for double-teams. He can instantly collapse the pocket as soon as the ball is snapped.

Having such a disruptive force at the Nose Tackle position would be a huge asset to the Panthers, as it would allow their dynamic linebacking duo of Luke Kuechly and Shaq Thompson to be able to flow freely to the football and roam sideline to sideline unimpeded. Check out the C3 Carolina Cat Chronicles podcast Tuesday nights at 9 PM to hear us discuss all the latest in Panther Nation!
