2019 Consensus Mock Draft In-Season #7

November 27, 2018 1:20 AM EST

How poorly are things going for the Oakland Raiders? Well, they are so bad that they can't even lose when they need to --coughing up what would have been a nice lead for the #1 overall pick with a win against Arizona that dropped them to #3 for the moment. A loss in the "Nick Bosa Sweepstakes" would be the costliest of this harrowing season, as the team is in desperate need of a boost to the pass rush (insert Khalil Mack trade joke here). In fact, the team is on pace to post the worst season of any team since the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008, with just 10 sacks in 11 games. Taking advantage of a deep, talented crop of DL will be a high priority early in the Draft as the team looks to add some talent next to Mo Hurst. Still, the team's leading rusher is 37th in the league, top receiver is 29th, top pass rusher (Hurst) is 60th, and interception leaders are tied for 29th. Oh, and there are serious questions about whether Derek Carr will be the signal-caller in 2019, the offensive line is tied for giving up the 3rd-most sacks in the league, and the linebackers are considered the worst in the league. Is there a position Oakland doesn't need help with? But no worries! We only have 9 years, 7 weeks, 2 days, 14 hours, and 9 minutes, and 46 seconds left of Gruden's contract as of this writing.

It may be the point in the season where Arizona fans can stop rooting for the Cards to win and start to focus on what it will take to lock up the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Cardinals sank to new depths in a 10-45 loss to the Chargers and now sit at a 2-9 record heading into Week 13. At the close of Sunday night's games, Arizona ranked last in the league with only 155 points scored and tied for 27th in points allowed with 293. The Cards' abysmal -138 point differential is rivaled only by the Oakland Raiders (-140), who are in the midst of a dumpster fire of a season while openly tanking in preparation for their move to Las Vegas.

Anyone who tuned out after the first quarter of AZ's matchup with the Chargers would've come away impressed. Josh Rosen went 6 of 8 for 79 yards while leading two scoring drives to give the Cards a 10-0 lead. However, Rosen went 6 of 11 for only 26 yards through the final three quarters. Meanwhile, the defense appeared helpless as Philip Rivers set NFL records for consecutive completions to start a game (25) and highest completion percentage in a game (28 of 29) while rallying for 45 unanswered points.

Arizona is clearly a team with a lot of needs. Throw a dart at the depth chart and you're almost guaranteed to hit a position that's ripe for improvement. However, GM Steve Keim has to realize that the future of the franchise rests on Josh Rosen's shoulders. Whether it's in the form of an offensive weapon or an anchor on the offensive line, Arizona needs to make sure that Rosen is given every chance to develop and succeed.

The Jets remained competitive for 30 mins against divisional-rival New England, but lack of adjustments at the half saw the Patriots run out easy winners in the end. When assessing the season, one question that will pop up is the performance of Jets' Offensive Coordinator Jeremy Bates. John Morton lost his job as Jets' OC at the end of last season but things seem to have regressed under Bates, so far this year. Todd Bowles wasn't a fan of Morton, citing differences in philosophy for his departure. The Jets were far more competitive under Morton, moved the ball easier, and were a lot more fun to watch. While Bates' philosophy may be more in tune with Bowles, it has not had the desired effect. The Jets' offense ranks 26th in Points, 29th in Yards, 31st in Turnovers and 31st on First Downs. So far this year, this is a regression on what Morton achieved. Expect a new OC, for the 3rd season in a row, in 2019.

It's been a tough week (read season) for the 49ers, so let's start with the good news: RB Matt Breida continues to be a bright spot for the offense, having posted consecutive 100-yard-rushing games. Rookie WR Dante Pettis stepped up to lead the team in recieving with 77 yards on 4 catches and a TD, making him the first WR to go over 75 yards in a game since Marquise Goodwin against the Packers in Week 6.

The bad news may sound familiar: San Fran's 2 INTs on the year is now a league-worst, and the anemic pass rush has recorded just one sack in 5 of 11 games this year. And in a bit of ugly news, the team (rightfully) released LB Reuben Foster following his arrest on domestic-violence charges.

From a draft perspective, each loss just brings the Niners one step closer to a top edge rusher that can change their defensive fortune...hopefully.

Anything and everything appears on the table for the New York Giants as they head into December with question marks splattered across the entire roster. The Giants are going to miss the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years and will again own a top pick in the NFL Draft.

The natural questions begin at the Quarterback position, where soon-to-be-38-year-old Eli Manning continues to add more losses than wins to his legendary Big Blue resume. General Manager Dave Gettleman and Giants' brass have been seen scouting top QB prospects, most-recently spotted in Morgantown, WV watching Will Grier. Weeks earlier, they were in Oregon getting a first-hand look at Justin Herbert.

The Giants' offensive line continues to disrupt a team heavy in talent at the skill positions. They have allowed 38 sacks through eleven games and the run game currently ranks 29th in the NFL. Upgrades are needed at C, RG, and RT. Free-agent LT Nate Solder has been a disappointment in New York thus far. On the defensive side of the ball, the Giants' pass rush has been putrid, tallying a mere 14 total sacks. Only the Oakland Raiders are worse.

If the Giants own a top 5 pick again, a potential franchise QB will need to be seriously considered, if available. There will be premium offensive linemen and pass rushers on the board when the Giants are on the clock, too. The Giants' roster needs a lot of work.

(Updated 12/3) We have a real QB in Josh Allen. This team is in great shape for 15 years. Against Miami, he took the team on his shoulders --and legs-- for a go-ahead win at the end, and came up just short -the only way Josh Allen can be short. What would help Allen the most next time? A TE without "hands of clay"? A big, reliable target at WR#1? Offensive Line depth? How about a Running Back who can catch the ball?

The answer is Yes.

Forget defense this week. Even considering the amazing catch by Stills, I liked the way our defensive back seven played, and this week we'll wait until RD4a for more DL pressure (Yes, I'd like Greedy Williams or Ed Oliver at this pick if available). Give Allen, say, a WR#1 like DK Metcalf, Hakeem Butler, N'Keal Harry, or Collin Johnson to throw to and watch the opponents' coverage change. Give him, say, a Benny Snell Jr. or Dexter Williams who has run-and-receiver versatility and you're almost uncoverable. Finally, give Josh Allen just a little more time with a Jonah Williams, Greg Little, or Trey Adams. Allen will still run, but he might have some options to throw to and time to do it.

"Fortune favors the bold". It's an old saying that's been around for a long, long time. The really cool thing about these old adages is that most are tried, tested, and true. A blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes and every cloud has a silver lining are just a few that people can resonate with. What's this got to do with the Detroit Lions then? Well, it's time the Lions do something bold. It's time to move on from #9 and yes, I'm talking about Matthew Stafford.

Let's be clear here; I do believe that Stafford is a good quarterback in the NFL. I'm not taking anything away from him in that respect. He's given his body up for 10 seasons here in the Honolulu Blue and that deserves some semblance of respect. A team that's poised to win now would be lucky to have his services. The Lions, unfortunately, are just not poised to win right now. Looking at the current state of the roster, it doesn't seem they will be ready for the Big Stage any time soon. For Stafford, he's going on 31 years of age this February. Unless you're Tom Brady, Father Time does catch up to us all and it's a safe bet to assume that Stafford's best years are behind him.

What's confusing about this whole conundrum is something I continue to go back to and it's that the GM, Bob Quinn, hired Patricia to not be in this situation, yet here we are. As a fan, it's hard to see the writing on the wall that this was an oversell by Quinn and that the roster does in fact need a rebuild. What's easy to acknowledge is that a shakeup is needed at QB. As depressing as the season has been for our Lions, perhaps the cloud that is this 2018 season has a silver lining. Something I have been adamant about for a good 3 years now is finally gaining some traction. It would be hard to believe if Quinn and Patricia aren't analyzing their QB situation come 2019. A team that needs to get more athletic in multiple positions with a QB that's vastly underperforming needs to trade with a contender for draft picks. Considering Quinn moved Golden Tate while only being one game out of 1st place in the NFC North, I believe Quinn understands that fortune does favor bold decisions and if he truly does believe the roster is "better than 9-7", I can honestly say I wouldn't be surprised if he makes this crazy yet bold move.

After seven straight losses, it's beginning to feel a bit like Murphy's Law. It was another game full of missed opportunities for the Jags. They were getting some pass rush early, something that has been lacking this season, but the Bills' Josh Allen kept getting the ball off, including a bomb in stride that went for a 75-yard touchdown. After another slow start, down 14-0 after the first quarter, they tie the game up, only to blow an opportunity at the end of the half. They're near midfield, and they turn the ball over when a receiver bobbles a pass that gets intercepted. Jacksonville finally gets the running game going with Fournette scoring 2 touchdowns in the second quarter, and then he gets ejected for fighting. Tack on a missed field goal, 99 rushing yards from the opposing QB, and another interception off of a bobbled pass that set Buffalo up for the field goal that would be the difference in the game. It's one thing to have less talent, but to keep shooting themselves in the foot makes it tough to watch. The mistakes are inexcusable, and they're happening on both sides of the ball. Whoever is picking for Jacksonville in 2019 can stand to add talent anywhere, particularly the O-Line, the D-Line, and of course, don't be surprised if they're in play for a Quarterback. At this rate, they may not have to trade up.

Let's consider the state of the NFL and the direction in which it's going. One trend is "Protect the QB". Another trend caters to the millenials, the "Z-Generation" and the way that they consume football. Their need for engagement (versus passively sitting in front of the tube) is manifested in two areas: gambling and fantasy football. Regarding gambling, other than trying make it more accessible, game rules are NOT going to be changed to facilitate more of it.

Fantasy Football is another story. It is so popular and so feeds millenial engagement requirements that rules are, and will continue to be, tinkered with to produce more offense. Given this, and the success of hyper-scoring teams like Kansas City, New Orleans, and the LA teams, why not just load up the offense with playmakers galore (and Linemen to protect them)? The Defense? Who cares? A contingent of quality pass-rushers to pressure opposing QBs into an occasional pick will be the difference between winning 42-35 and losing 42-35.

As such, I don't think the Bucs are too far away from flipping the table. With all the glory heaped upon Chiefs, Saints, and Rams, guess who is leading the NFL in yards/game? You guessed it; the Bucs lead with 458.5 ypg. Looking at the glass as half-full, well, "don't fix what ain't broke"! Keep the mechanisms in place that generate 458.5. Then, just take steps to improve upon those "last-in-league" departments: Opponent interception percentage, own interceptions thrown percentage, and finally, fix the GD kicking game!! Consider the remainder of the year as an audition for Jameis Winston and his ability to lead the league's most productive offense.

The Browns have not lost a game in three weeks. Stop and let that sink in a little. Granted one of those was a bye week, but this team is coming dangerously close to removing the "laughing-stock" label that seemed like it would never wash off. Now consider that the Browns are 2-1-1 in the division, and it looks like Cleveland is finally moving in the right direction. Since the firing of Hue Jackson, the Browns are 2-1, and the icing on the cake is that not only has he joined divisional-rival Cincinnati, but they haven't won since he got there. I'm not sure I like Baker Mayfield taking public shots at his former coach, but winning his all the Dawg Pound cares about right now. It will be very interesting to see how many more wins this team could have in them this season. We have gotten so used to drafting in the top 10, and we still have some glaring needs that are always easier to fix in that area. We have to upgrade our tackles, and the interior of our defensive line could use some help. Still, right now we look like possibly the only organization in the AFC North with an upward-trending arrow. That feels good. ~Austin Smith

Getting paddled by the Saints isn't unusual for NFL teams in 2018, but the loss really exposed --again-- the completely ineffectual work by the right side of the offensive line (That, and a complete disregard for ball security by the wide receivers). Matt Ryan was under consistent pressure from his exposed side, whether it was Ryan Schraeder or less frequently, Ben Garland, blowing blocks. This is a decent draft for offensive tackles, and perhaps the Falcons will move on from Schraeder this spring. Having said that, the pass rush remains anemic, too. There are more than a few dynamic defensive tackles who can provide some needed inside pressure --a critical component in a division with Cam Newton and Drew Brees. You can summarize the Falcons' season with poor tackle play. No tackles on defense, no Tackle to Matt Ryan's right, no defensive tackles providing interior pressure. Then again, Vic Beasley is another guy who could be easily replaced with simply a league-average player. The good news is that come September, the Falcons should have their full arsenal of tools back, plus some premium draft picks to fill out areas of need.

With Andy Dalton out for the season, all of the preseason predictions for the Bengals are bound to come true. After surging to a 4-1 start, the Bengals' hot offense surprised most fans (and media as well), because most expected the Bengals to struggle in Marvin Lewis' (possible) final season. Since then, the Bengals' defense has been exposed, giving up 30+ points in 4 out of their last 5 games, with an average of 38 points given up per game over that span. No matter how well the offense is playing, the Saints and Rams are the only teams built to win when giving up so many points on defense. Moving toward the offseason is now a reality for Cincy fans, and the future can't be too bright, with an old, poor defense and a quarterback who never seems to rise above mediocrity. Did I mention the organizations penchant for sticking with lame-duck coaches year-after-year expecting different results? Ending on a positive note, the Bengals are tremendously talented on offense, and if the organization can bring in an offensive-minded head coach while bringing the defense back to (at-least) mediocrity, this division's future is wide open.

So close, yet so far away. To all the bystanders and fans watching the game, it seemed like Miami had clinched a huge win late in the fourth quarter against a surging Indianapolis Colts team. That feeling of victory was short-lived as Andrew Luck completed a 34-yard pass to Chester Rodgers to set up an Adam Vinatieri 32-yard field goal. The Dolphins seemed to have done everything to come out with the win - Tannehill looked comfortable in the pocket after resuming his starting role after recovering from his shoulder injury, the running game was solid, and they won the turnover battle 3-1. The defense again looked pitiful against the run and allowed Eric Ebron and T.Y. Hilton to run all over their secondary. The Miami Dolphins' defensive front continuously gets dominated week-in and week-out. This allows for the line of scrimmage to be reset on just about every run play. Something has to change, especially when Cameron Wake is the only pass rusher that can consistently accumulate sacks. This simply furthers a recurring emphasis on the team's need for a stronger presence along the defensive line. When your team's oldest defensive lineman is the only one capable of rushing the passer, there is an obvious problem, and it desperately needs to be addressed in the 2019 Draft and Free Agency. If they can create pressure and not allow for quarterbacks to have all day to throw in the pocket, then this stout secondary will begin to look 10x better. Although they did lose this past week, the Dolphins should sustain a glimmer of hope to get to a .500 record or just under it down this final stretch of games after a solid outing against an excellent football team.

Just when we thought we were a lock to pick in the top 10, Vance Joseph and Case Keenum decided to make a case to keep their jobs beyond this season. Seriously, I don't think anyone thought this team had back-to-back upsets in them but sure enough, Denver snapped a pair of six-game winning streaks. It has been an inspiring effort, for a roster that needs everyone to show their true colors down the stretch. This team has plenty of possible solutions but very little consistency, and right now I don't think I could come close to telling you who this team should pick next April. Sure, there are obvious answers like quarterback, left tackle and cornerback. Still, would this team pass on a safety if he were the best player available? How about a defensive lineman because there are going to be a lot of good ones? A tight end? A guard? This team has a lot of question marks, and each player better spend the rest of the season proving they aren't one of them. ~Austin Smith

(Updated 12/3) Immediately following a 17-20 loss to the lowly Arizona Cardinals, President Mark Murphy decided that it was time to end the Mike McCarthy Era in Green Bay. Over the course of 13 seasons, McCarthy compiled a 135-86-2 record. He brought a Lombardi Trophy back to Titletown in 2010 and has a street running just south of Lambeau Field named in his honor. McCarthy presided over one of the most successful runs in Green Bay Packers' history, and for that he deserves a heartful thank you from all of Packers Nation.

Despite McCarthy's tenure as a highly successful NFL coach, it was simply time to make a change. The Packers, sporting a 4-7-1 record, can stop dreaming about playoff scenarios and start to focus on what needs to happen to steer this team toward a successful 2019 campaign. It will be interesting to see whether Murphy sticks with an unconventional organizational structure or shifts power back to the GM position during the ensuing coaching search.

Green Bay will need more than a change at Head Coach to point this franchise back in the right direction. However, GM Brian Gutekunst will be armed with two selections in RD1 and over $40M in cap space to address the team's needs. With Aaron Rodgers entrenched at QB, the Packers could be just a few moves away from being legitimate contenders next season.

In the first half of Sunday's game between the Eagles and Giants, Saquon Barkley was gashing Philly's defense every time he touched the ball. The Giants rode Barkley to a 19-3 lead, and the Eagles simply had no answer for him. Then, Giants coach Pat Shurmur had a revelation: "Eureka! I'll surprise the Eagles by only giving Saquon four carries the rest of the game!" Unsurprisingly, the Eagles promptly came back, took the lead, and won the game. Boy, these NFC East battles are real heavyweight matchups this year!

At 5-6 with three division games left, the Eagles are certainly still in the hunt for the division title and a Wild Card berth. Playoffs or no playoffs, Eagles fans know this team has issues. Aside from QB and TE, every unit on the team needs help. Even cornerback, a unit thought to have so much depth before the season that the team even considered trading Ronald Darby, is now a complete disaster due to injuries. Aside from O-Line, D-Line, CB and RB, another draft need is at WR. In hindsight, giving Detroit a third rounder for Golden Tate probably wasn't the best use of resources. What the Eagles really need is a burner on the outside to stretch opposing defenses. The Eagles showed Sunday how committing to the run with Josh Adams could open up the whole offense; a deep threat at WR would also make things so much easier for everyone on offense. With two picks in RD2, it wouldn't be surprising to see a speedy WR targeted in that range.
