2019 Consensus Mock Draft In-Season #2

September 18, 2018 1:00 AM EST

Fast-food fans won't enjoy this Bills re-build, because they'll want an instant transformation. It ain't going to go down like that.

I liked what I saw from Second Half Josh this week. We knew he was smart, and he seemed to learn as he went along. As my friend Joe said, Josh will learn more by playing than he would from watching sub-par QBs. The Bills' OL is mediocre, and could warrant an early dip into the draft. Same with the playmakers on offense, although that hasn't been the style of the Bills' Front Office.

Defense played far better in the second half, particularly Hughes, Murphy, Milano, Alexander, and Poyer. Vontae Davis showed the grit of a quitter. That, combined with the lack of DL pressure in the first half, makes DT and CB very likely in RD1. Beane will have oodles of FA and draft capital to elevate this team in 2019, and while that doesn't help against Minnesota and Green Bay this month, it's going to reward the Bills' faithful.

Through two games, the Cardinals have been outscored 58-6. It doesn't get any better from there folks. Sam Bradford went 17-27 for just 90 yards and an INT in their Week 2 matchup against the Rams. Arizona is averaging just 175 yards of total offense. Chad Williams, the team's No. 2 WR, hasn't caught a single pass.

After two embarrassing losses, HC Steve Wilks says that it is time for the Cardinals to evaluate everything. The Cardinals once viewed this year as a retool rather than a rebuild, but it's becoming clear pretty quickly that they're one of the worst teams in the league. If Arizona truly is playing for the future, it may be time to give Josh Rosen a look.

The Cards should be looking for an impact offensive player to rescue them from their woes. However, it may be tough to reach for a need in a class that appears to be stacked with impact players on the defensive side of the ball.

The Detroit Lions are an enigma. Before I address the state of the team as it pertains to the 2019 NFL Draft we need to concede the point that the 2018 Detroit Lions are not the previous version we saw under Jim Caldwell and Bob Quinn. The hiring of Matt Patricia was supposed to be an upgrade and according to Quinn's analysis of the team in the last two years under Caldwell, "we didn't beat the really good teams" and "the standards that I have and the Ford family has for this team are greater than that and my job is to find us that next great head coach to bring us that championship". Cleary, an 0-2 start to the season and just the eye test proves this team, despite the championship caliber hire of Patricia, isn't close to a Super Bowl appearance any time soon. Losses to the Jets on opening night and just recently to the 49ers would indicate that they're not even beating the mediocre teams.

Expectations were high when Patricia was hired. The goal was simple, to bring division titles, to bring championships to the franchise with a roster that seemed talented enough to do so. Yet, we find ourselves here in this predicament and bewilderment of figuring out exaclty just how we got into this mess. For any first year coach, especially one like Patricia who is attempting to change a culture, the fan base would be rational to give lend some leeway. However, when Quinn sold the idea to the fan base that the goal was championships or bust, this team has underachieved thus far. Which has really gotten fans antsy and upset. Rightfully so.

So where do we go from here? It can only go up.....can't it? The pre-season indicated that the pass rush was problematic. Through the first two weeks of the season, the Lions actually rank 2nd in the league in sacks with 8. 6 having come in Week 2 vs the Niners. A major improvement. What else do they rank 2nd in? Average rushing yards allowed per attempt at a whopping 5.6 yards. In fact, they also rank 1st in the league in rushing yards allowed per game at 179. Absolutely dreadful. My take? They need an alpha dog at linebacker. Someone who can plug holes and stuff the run. Get sideline-to-sideline. Keeping in mind there was a reason they signed not one, but two linebackers via free agency to go along with Jarrad Davis who continues to struggle...linebacker is a major weakness for the Lions and it's evident that Patricia and Quinn both know it. We can only hope they figure something out soon, or else I may need to start requesting draft pick analyses by next week!

Oakland finding a way to lose THAT game- one where Derek Carr completed 90% of his passes, Amari Cooper caught 10 passes on 10 targets for over 100 yards, the offense surrendered no turnovers, and the defense provided a key interception- does not bode well for the rest of a season that now begins 0-2. As expected, the front seven really struggled as the Raiders' failure to address the linebacker position and incredible turnover along the DL really showed. Mo Hurst provided the only sack in the game which brings the team's season total to a whopping 2 - a pace that would have the Raiders in dead last in 2017 by a full 6 sacks. With 2 picks in RD1, Gruden needs to give this defense some support.

Even the most diehard Browns' fans have to admit this has been a crazy month. It started with a tie. Then it was announced that Cleveland would be finally getting rid of Josh Gordon for misleading them about a commercial he was shooting, in which he was injured. Then, the football gods decided they simply had no interest in allowing the Browns to win a game by giving our kicker the NFL version of the yips. Saying that I am shocked would be admitting that I have the slightest idea where to set my standardized bar. I don't know whether to pinch myself or set up an appointment with a therapist but I do know that this is not normal. Having said that, let's focus on the areas this team needs to improve before next year. Suddenly, Cleveland could sure use a receiver, and while Antonio Callaway looked good this past Sunday, he comes with similar baggage to Gordon. A future left tackle might be enticing as well, and while this defense is looking better, there are still some areas where they could get better. Did I mention a kicker would be nice? ~Austin Smith

The Giants are 0-2 for the fifth time in the last six years. The Giants' playoff hopes might not be dead yet, but it's time to start making proper arrangements. Teams that start a season 0-2 in the NFL make the playoffs roughly 11 percent of the time. The Giants are likely to miss the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years.

Thus far, the Giants' revamped offensive line is a nightmare. In particular, the combination of Patrick Omameh and Ereck Flowers on the right side is a complete mess. Against Dallas in WK2, Eli Manning was sacked SIX times and hit often as o-linemen struggled with stunts, blitzes and simple four-man rushes. While Manning was getting battered by Cowboys, the Giants' pass rush produced zero sacks and just two QB hits. Through two games, the Giants' D has one sack and one interception. Bad offensive line play and a nonexistent pass rush is recipe for disaster. It's getting late early in East Rutherford.

Rookie QB Sam Darnold announced himself on the National stage in typical Jets fashion. When his first throw in Pro Football resulted in Pick-6, fans may have been forgiven in thinking they were going to be in for a long night but Darnold bounced back and displayed some of the traits that should ensure a bright future, moving forward. The Jets dominated in all 3 phases against Detroit but they came crashing back down to earth with a lacklustre display against Divisional rivals Miami. Overall it's been a pretty positive start to the season far, but moving forward the Jets need to do a better job in protecting their young QB. Darnold has been sacked 5 times so far, with LT Kelvin Beachum responsible for 3. If things don't improve in this area, expect the Jets to try and rectify the situation this Off-Season.

My Houston Texans' Dynasty is taking a couple weeks to show itself, hold the wagons steady just a little longer. Once the Team gets out of their own way the season will be ours again. The Texans have four new starters along the OL and early season results indicate they may need four or five more. The experiment of using late rounders and cast offs has failed for many consecutive years, it's time to pony up and get some horses up front via the draft or FA. Cap space isn't crap if you don't use it. Just get Deshaun a line that can block for at least two seconds! If there's a quality OT on the board, Houston must jump to protect the franchise. Not far behind the OL on Houston's wish list is CB. It's unfortunate Kevin Johnson can't stay healthy, but he's reached bust status and the Team can't relying on him anymore. Additionally, Father Time is catching up to J-Joe and K-Jack is not far behind. The Texans need to acquire more than one playmaker at the CB position, the loss of Bouye still stings. The Safety positions look strong with Mathieu and Reid in the middle. If CB and OT are not addressed this upcoming offseason, the entire staff should be fired. After an offensive flop in NE, it's very apparent the Texans must find other weapons on offense, Fuller V is great when available...but he must stay available. Time to grab your jocks boys, lets get past the first two trash can fires and go get our Lombardi Trophy. ~CME, Texans Analyst

Indy evens its W-L record at 1 each, and while many Colts' fans were grumbling when they watched as available (and presumably an instant asset to the roster) free agents were allowed to go elsewhere by GM Chris Ballard. Many also were rightfully nervous about just what type of Offensive Line would be protecting Andrew Luck as the QB returned from his injury-induced hiatus from the team. However, after two games in the regular season, we can begin to see a bit of the vision GM Chris Ballard has been talking about for two years in Indy.

While opportunities were ripe for the taking ( albeit paying high-priced, short-term free-agent players that may not ultimately fit his vision) it also should be noted that it runs counter to his belief that he will have to stock the roster with younger, talented and versatile players. Guys that will initially see plenty of playing time and make plenty of mistakes, on their way to learning about life in the NFL. One of those young rookies is Linebacker Darius "Maniac" Leonard, who only had 17 tackles (15 solo), a sack and a forced fumble. Recall that many thought the R2 selection for Darius Leonard ( South Carolina) was a bit too high. However, he now has the attention of all of us.

Indy may not battle for a playoff spot (though I would never completely rule it out, either) this season, but as Ballard has indicated, it will be built for the future.The outcome, he hopes, will be a tight-knit group of players that will create the foundation for another run of playoff trips and Super Bowl appearances.

Just 80 total offensive yards through the first three quarters of play on Monday night. Who would have thought that the depleted defense would be the star of the show in Chicago? Nobody because the punter went out and executed a perfect dropkick. That was the best thing to happen for Seattle in the Windy City. If that doesn't illustrate the state of this team, nothing will.

Prior to the season I wrote that Russell Wilson would likely drag this team to at least a .500 record. After two weeks, that statement appears foolish. Seattle fans have been spoiled recently and it could very well all come back to Earth. The offensive line has given up 16 sacks already - the ghost of Tom Cable continues to haunt. All while allowing sacks on 14.8% of snaps - down from 7.29% last season. Yet, Seattle still needs to address defense early and often due to limited pass rush and virtually no depth.

If someone told me Andrew Luck's stat-line in week 2 would be 21/31, 192 yd, 2 TD, 2 INT, and that the Colts would only gain 281 yards of total offense, I would've assumed an easy win for the Redskins. Well, that wasn't the case, and those stats don't bear out how dominating of a win this game truly was for the Colts. As much as the Redskins dominated the Cardinals in week 1, they were equally dominated by the visiting Colts in week 2. The Colts defense, widely considered to be one of the worst defensive rosters in the league, employed deep zones that required the Redskins to dink-and-dunk underneath. Alex Smith and the Redskins never got into a rhythm as the offensive line looked terrible (specifically Morgan Moses), losing at the point of attack down-in and down-out. Inconsistencies have plagued the Redskins throughout the Gruden era, and if the fifth-year head coach can't fix that trend, he won't be representing the Burgundy and Gold very long.

It's too early to get a sense of how Oakland's recent draft picks stack up, but early returns suggest Oakland has value in Kolton Miller, P.J. Hall (though banged up), Arden Key, and Mo Hurst. Still, look for the Raiders to attempt to add an impact defensive linemen early in a draft class that is LOADED with standouts on the defensive front. On the other hand, there is not a single linebacker on the Raiders' roster that is a "building block," though I expect Tahir Whitehead will be considered a lock as a starter heading into next season. In the defensive backfield, Gareon Conley looked solid against Denver, but the franchise has major needs at safety. Offensively, the needs are less glaring, but, considering the team is averaging only 16 points per game- a mark that would rank 30th in 2017- Gruden will be on the prowl for playmakers.

There is no denying the dominance of Deforest Buckner. The San Francisco star DT came into 2018 with 3 career sacks; through the first two games of 2018 he has 3.5...the rest of the 49ers defense? Just 1.5. While it's been awesome to watch Buckner become a one man wrecking crew, he needs help coming off the edge if the 49ers want to complete their pedestrian to powerhouse makeover.

Sadly the front line issues are not limited to the defensive side of the ball as the 49ers struggle to create pressure is mirrored by their ability to give it up. One week after Detroit struggled to sack Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold, the Lions feasted on Garoppolo for six sacks (without star pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah.) Granted, Garoppolo hurt himself by holding onto the ball too long, but upgrading the interior line will be a definite priority in the offseason.

Finally, after taking a brief look before ultimately passing on, now Patriots, WR Josh Gordon it wouldn't be a surprise to see San Francisco look for pass catching help. Outside of Marquise Goodwin this group is a series of question marks and Jimmy G could benefit from the presence of a true WR1 he can get the ball to in traffic rather than waiting for one of six guys to break free downfield or checking down. Sitting at 1-1 the 49ers still have a long way to go in finding out what they have, before they decide what they need in the 2019 draft. And on a personal note: can we just make Breida the feature back already?

Well, this season is not off to the start we all hoped. After last season's playoff berth, and all new coaches with brand new schemes, things were looking up in Tennessee. Despite our high hopes, this season has already started beyond poorly. Mariota has already missed a game, Delanie Walker suffered a gruesome injury and is out for the season, and Derrick Henry, expected by us all to become the feature back, is averaging an abysmal 2.9 yards per carry.

Despite the lack of beauty through two weeks, there are some bright spots. The team, despite the offensive woes, is still 1-1 after winning this past weekend against the Texans, which included a touchdown pass off a fake punt from All-Pro safety Kevin Byard. Another huge bright spot is the emergence of Corey Davis, who currently leads the team in receptions and yards. We've been waiting for this since the Titans took him 5th Overall in the 2017 NFL Draft and an injury-riddled rookie campaign. Recently aquired Kamalei Correa has generated two sacks, helping bolster a pass rush that needed some depth. The jury is still out on the pass defense, but we'll get a better feel after the next few weeks if there is improvement.

While it hasn't been pretty, the team is in decent shape. Hopefully some consistent rhythm is generated on offense, though. Otherwise, it could end up being a long few months of frustration.

I was perusing thoughts of "How can the Cowboys spice up their play-calling?" during Saturday's endless stream of college football games when a thunderbolt struck me . . . it doesn't have to be just offense, but should also include defense and SPECIAL teams. After all, if the name of the group is SPECIAL, shouldn't it be SPECIAL? I bet you know where I'm going with this, so in my best P.T. Barnum voice "Drum Roll, Please" ! Straight from Fayatteville, Arkansas, we present the following for your viewing pleasure!

Dallas is now in 1st place in the NFC East . . . yeah, I know the Deadskins and the Beagles are also 1-1 but the first tie-breaker is division wins LOL! The defense is still playing well, the offense is beginning to come out of its Rip Van Winkle slumber , and help is on the way! Yep, the Cowboys are bringing back Brice Butler to supplement the receiving corps (and my facetiousness is only outweighed by my sarcasm!) A trip to the Pacific Northwest is next on the agenda where the Seahawks are rolling out the Welcome Mat! "!

Wow! When is the last time you can remember the Miami Dolphins being atop the AFC East Standings?! Many have found this hard to believe, and even I can admit that I am pleasantly surprised. Just about everything has looked good for this Miami team. The highlights that I have taken away from these past two weeks are how good the Dolphins secondary has looked. Minkah Fitzpatrick has looked like a pro bowl caliber rookie so far. The ground game has been mediocre, yet effective. Gore and Drake look like a true thunder and lightning duo, and Tannehill has looked efficient as well; minus his two interceptions. He has been spreading the ball out well to all of his receivers, just like he should be doing with no clear #1 go-to guy. I don't want to overdue it just yet, though. I would like to see how they fair this week against Gruden and the Raiders before I commit to getting this hype train going. The odds are in their favor to start off the season 3-0 for the first time since the 2013-2014 season.
