Solak 2019 NFL Mock Draft 4.0

Indianapolis, Dallas, Los Angeles, and my beloved Philadelphia -- welcome! This is the NFL Draft. Sucks to be here, but it gets better quick.

S/o to Kyle for sneaking all the way into my drafts to expose me on the internet following the Eagles loss on Sunday/

So: as the legend of Drew Brees continues, the changing of the guard awaits between Mahomes and Brady, and we stare down the barrel of showcase games for NFL Draft prospects, make sure you're plugged in with TDN. We have four members of staff on location for the Shrine Game, for which practices start today; and all six analysts on staff will be on location for next week's Senior Bowl as well. It's gonna be a full few weeks of football, gang.

This is my latest two round mock draft (sorry, Bears fans), and it was executed from my updated Top-100, which is also available for your perusal. As a matter of fact, besides the two QBs selected, the other 30 first-round players are my Top-30 prospects. Should be a few names that surprise you; if you want to talk about who ranked where for why, hit me up on Twitter @BenjaminSolak.

Let's get crankin'!




Picks 1 - 10

1. Arizona Cardinals

Quinnen Williams, iDL, Alabama

Quinnen at No. 1 to the Cards is a no-brainer, as I see it. He's my top-ranked player in this class -- though I won't hate if you have Nick Bosa above him; that's a valid take -- and fills an immediate need for Arizona. Slam dunk.

They do need more EDGE help, yes -- but they already have the one elite rusher in Chandler Jones, while they're completely lacking for high-impact rushers from the interior. New HC Kliff Kingsbury might be tempted to go offense early, but he'll know he needs to load his defense with talent as well. Welcome to the NFL.

2. San Francisco 49ers

Nick BosaEDGE, Ohio State

All the better for Kyle Shanahan and the Niners if the Cards pass on Bosa. They get the rush help they have desperately needed in the past few seasons.

What with Kliff, Shanny, and McVay in the division -- oh, and Brian Schottenheimer -- you can imagine that the NFC West team most effective at rushing the passer will hold a critical advantage in interdivisional matchups. Arizona's still rebuilding, but the Niners could punch at Seattle/LA weight if they beef up that defensive line.

Bosa brings starting potential in Year 1 and will have the early odds for DROY -- ton of polish to his game. I'm a little curious about his Combine 3-cone, though.

3. New York Jets

Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

Not a sexy pick for the team who finds themselves at the exact draft slot at which they took Sam Darnold not a year ago -- but the right one.

New HC Adam Gase understands the value of protecting his quarterback -- at least, he better, after all the difficulty he had keeping Ryan Tannehill upright during his stint in Miami. With his first pick as the Dolphins head coach, Gase grabbed Laremy Tunsil -- and while that pick wasn't the steal many had hoped, it illustrated Gase's willingness to develop young OL talent. Williams is a plug-and-play bodyman for the Jets' future at QB.

4. Oakland Raiders

Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama

Back-to-back Crimson Tide picks, as the Raiders get Thompson early. Now, drafting a safety at four is a questionable matter of value, though the 2017 crop had enough success to get coaches and GMs to talk themselves into the idea.

If anyone will eschew the value conversation around a top pick at safety, it's Gruden, who will love Thompson's playmaking ability, instincts, and willingness to tackle. Mayock is on the horse as well, I'd imagine.

Please miss me with all analysis predicated on a two-game, maybe four/five play stretch during the playoffs, in which Thompson struggled. Dude plays the position in which you're trying to fix everyone in front of you. Mistakes happen.

I really don't think Oakland picks an EDGE at almost the exact draft slot at which Khalil Mack was selected. That irony is a little much, even for me.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky

"Hey, Coach! Welcome to town. Here's our franchise QB, super up-and-down, need your help there. Weapons are excellent though; OL could use some work too, we'll get to that. Anyway, modern linebackers, some young corner and safeties, yeah, good stuff..."

...

"I'm sorry, what was that? Pass rusher? Am I saying that right? You want to know if we have a pass rusher?"

The Tampa roster is thirsting for an impact EDGE, as all of their current players -- Jason Pierre-Paul, Vinny Curry, Carl Nassib -- project best as depth pieces in a two-deep. Who's the starter, the go-to, the homewrecker? Enter Josh Allen, who exploded onto the scene for Kentucky this year, and has the physical profile to develop into a more diverse and deadly rusher with NFL training.

Nobody tell Josh I didn't put him No. 1 overall, though.

6. New York Giants

Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma

Will the Giants neglect QB at 6? As each day passes toward the NFL Draft, it seems more and more likely -- especially once Justin Herbert elected to return to school, when that buzz started to really pick up.

I think Cody Ford is a Top-10 talent at offensive tackle, with unbelievable foot speed and balance for his tremendous size -- and if the Giants aren't going for a new signal-caller, they might as well make life as easy on Eli as possible. An easy life for QB is two things: protection and weapons. They've got the firepower, so lock in Ford and things get real interesting for an offense that looked stronger in the back half of 2018.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson

There isn't a single QB in this class -- not Dwayne Haskins, Kyler Murray, or Brett Rypien -- who makes the Jags as competitive in 2019 as Teddy Bridgewater does. If he becomes available, no hesitation: pull the trigger. You have so many pieces in place. Get real and bring in the QB.

Bridgewater could use an elite weapon like D.K. Metcalf, but I elected to re-up the pass rush after the departure of Dante Fowler at the trade deadline. You already have Yannick Ngakoue, the explosive corner rusher on one side -- enter Clelin Ferrell, who has everything but that killer bend on the outside.

Ferrell has added nice physicality to his length and counter move prowess this season, in my viewing of him -- he's everything people wanted Leonard Floyd to be a few years ago, because he actually has NFL size and strength. With early picks in Taven Bryan last season and Ferrell this year, Jacksonville continues to emphasize the importance of a deep, varied pass rush.

8. Detroit Lions

Ed Oliver, iDL, Houston

I have Ed Oliver as the fourth-ranked player on my board, but as I've said a few times now: Oliver is gonna be a player that only some teams like. His size (if he hits 280 pounds it's a huge win) will turn some teams away.

Matt Patricia's Lions won't be one of those teams, I'd wager, as Patricia's defenses in New England loved move pieces they could rush from 4- or 5-technique spots. That screams Oliver, who didn't enjoy much rush productivity as a 0- to 1-technique for the Cougars. More freedom to slant and penetrate will maximize his first-step prowess, and he'll remain staunch against the run no matter where he puts his hat.

Damon Harrison, Oliver, Da'Shawn Hand, and a free-agent addition like Brandon Graham or Dee Ford (or Trey Flowers!) is a feisty front four.

9. Buffalo Bills

Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

Lotta B's in this one, gang.

We're nine selection into this draft and we've only seen one non-trench player leave the board. Yet, it doesn't even feel like Buffalo is reaching: rather, they're getting a great fit as Jacksonville went Ferrell, and the quicker, bendier Burns ends up with the Bills.

Buffalo's defense was the strength of their team this year, while the offense needs some help. Trust me, I know that: I got destroyed in an earlier mock for giving them some dude named Quinnen Williams. But I'm not going to pass up an elite stand-up 9-tech -- which they definitely need -- just because the Mafia wants a WR one round too early.

Burns will eventually take Jerry Hughes' spot, but even early on can line up outside Shaq Lawson and juice up Buffalo's outside pressure.

10. Denver Broncos

Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

I don't condone the pick, but it's the best QB on the board -- just hope GM John Elway and whoever ends up being his offensive coordinator agree with me.

That Vic Fangio hire is swell, and he may push to add a disruptive interior force (Jeffery Simmons), rangy LB (Devin White) or Chris Harris replacement (Byron Murphy) -- but QB is the trump card here.

Haskins will be better after a year of development, and I think he'll have that time as Denver rebuilds their offensive line and settles under a new head coach. Haskins and second-year WR DaeSean Hamilton could become something fun, given their relative strengths.


Picks 11 - 21

11. Cincinnati Bengals

Chris Lindstrom, iOL, Boston College

Would sure be easier to tell you who the Bengals were gonna pick if they had, you know, a head coach. If it's Zac Taylor, you gotta wonder if they're looking beyond Andy Dalton -- we'll cross that bridge when we get there, though.

For now, I have them returning to the interior offensive line pool that gave them Billy Price in last year's draft. Price's rookie season was...well, let's say up-and-down -- but offensive linemen usually take time, so this pick isn't an indictment on Price. Rather, it's a concentrated effort to rebuild a position that was neglected woefully during the Marvin Lewis years -- and, just maybe, turn the keys of the offense over to talented young RB Joe Mixon.

12. Green Bay Packers

Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida

I'm worried about the Matt LaFleur hire. Feels like a reach. Now, there's a chance that just new blood will enliven Rodgers and re-open the clearly kinked channels of communication -- but that means anyone could have been the hire.

That said, LaFleur's first big and correct move was retaining DC Mike Pettine, who I think is well on his way to building a strong defense there in Green Bay. Last year, they poured the resources into cornerback; this season, I'd love to see them go after EDGEs with intention in free agency and the draft. It's no coincidence that Chris Jones started setting records when Dee Ford and Justin Houston warmed up in KC -- EDGE pressure begets interior pressure.

Kenny Clark is your stud; help him out with Polite, a wicked quick bender around the outside track who will force offensive to help all but their best tackles. Go back into the deep class in Round 2 or 3 and grab yourself an Oshane Ximines or Chase Winovich.

13. Miami Dolphins

Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

Much like the Cincy pick, this would be fairly easier if I knew anything about the future Dolphins staff -- but I don't! So let's get frisky.

Murray's going in the first round if he declares -- though things aren't that cut-and-dry with the Oakland Athletics, from what has been recently rumored.

I have my doubts about Murray's pro projection: he's a scramble-first QB with an unbelievable arm; uncomfortable in the pocket and inaccurate when throwing with anticipation, but wonderfully pinpoint when he sees it develop. There's a lot to figure out there -- but there's also a lot to figure out in Miami, as the Dolphins need a full-scale rebuild. That starts with getting your QB and seeing if he can stick.

If Murray flops, Miami will only be in the exact same spot as they are now, just two years later (and with a better pick).

14. Atlanta Falcons

Jeffery Simmons, iDL, Mississippi State

This is a fit you've seen from me before, Atlanta fans -- sorry if the lack of novelty turns you off. But it feels too easy: Atlanta needs an over tackle who can play next to Grady Jarrett but still add something to the pass rush, and as much as I'd like Deadrin Senat -- a crush of mine from last season -- to be that guy, I just don't see it happening.

Simmons' past requires some careful evaluation, but if Atlanta feels comfortable bringing him into the building, he'll add to their laboring pass rush and protect their undersized linebackers from Day 1.

15. Washington Redskins

D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

Took a bit, but we got the top WR off the board here. All the better for the Redskins, who could have a slew of different names playing QB in 2019, and have to make sure the weapons are up to snuff.

Metcalf, who has been benching 100 pounds since he was a first-grader, wins with elite physical ability and developed technique for a redshirt sophomore. Josh Doctson will still get outside reps, but Metcalf/Crowder will become the primary outside/inside duo at wide receiver for Washington; and D.K. will also take over some of the red zone targets TE Jordan Reed no longer warrants.

16. Carolina Panthers

Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware

Wanted to go OL with the Panthers -- usually do, for poor Cam's sake -- but I opted for the safety pick. The Panthers may elect to return Eric Reid, who has caught headlines for a bevy of off-field reasons this year; or continue riding Mike Adams, a washed high safety who failed to make impact plays this season; or lean on second-year Rashaan Gaulden, who wasn't able to play his way into significant snaps in 2018.

Or, swing for the fences on Nasir Adderley, an FCS shooting star who could take over the Senior Bowl next week with his athleticism, range, and ball skills on the fly. Adderley immediately plugs into the deep middle if you want to bump Adams, but has the mirror quickness to tag slots and tight ends as a box safety as well. Great player.

17. Cleveland Browns

Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

The more I consider it, the more I think a double-dip on first-round corners makes sense for the Browns.

EDGE is a trendy pick, but they have a lot of subpackage rushers right now -- I think they should retain DT Trevon Coley, for what it's worth -- and while they could fit another guy in there, I think that player can come on Day 2.

More pressing is the need opposite Denzel Ward: another corner who can hang with the heavy Cover 3 responsibilities that likely DC Steve Wilks will deploy. Enter Murphy, one of the most instinctive and ball-hawking Cover 3 corners we've seen come out in the past few years. Neither Murphy nor Ward are big dudes, but they'll produce impact plays in terms of PBUs and INTs -- that's what the modern D is all about.

18. Minnesota Vikings

T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa

Hockenson is one of two prospects in this first round (hello, Rams fans!) who we're carefully watching today as they make their NFL Draft decision. I've been told, however, that Hockenson is likely to declare as a redshirt sophomore -- and all the power to him. He's a two-year starter over stud TE Noah Fant (hello, Green Bay fans!) and winner of the Mackey Award. He's the real freakin' deal.

If Mike Zimmer and Kevin Stefanski are going to bring the running game back to Minnesota, then Hockenson makes a ton of sense. He's a vicious run blocker -- essentially a sixth offensive lineman -- and stupid good on the hoof. Kyle Rudolph has had a long and respected career, but he's losing effectiveness in his advanced age, and there isn't much starting potential behind him.

Athleticism, hands across the middle, YAC vision and elusiveness -- Hock is the entire package.

19. Tennessee Titans

Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

Though he has fallen down my board, I don't think Greedy had a terrible season this year -- nothing like that. The plays he took off, the half-hearted effort on running plays -- it just makes me a little wary. And even when he's on, he gets grabby downfield when he's in good position, and I'm still not sure he's great at playing with his head turned to the ball.

That said, he has man coverage quickness, balance, and length -- he completes the young CB duo Tennessee is looking to build with Adoree Jackson, who they selected right around this spot two years ago.

Greedy's addition lets Adoree slide into the nickel more easily, where Tennessee was weak this season. He also bumps Malcolm Butler off of the starting roster -- or at least, he better.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers

Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama

A late addition to the 2019 NFL Draft class, Wilson had us lamenting the state of a weak linebacker class when it seemed he wasn't coming out. Now Wilson declares for the NFL and immediately becomes LB1 and the crown jewel target for the Steelers, who are desperately wanting for an impact, sideline-to-sideline defender in the middle of the field.

Wilson's sublime explosiveness and tracking ability will help mitigate the terrible loss of Ryan Shazier. He's also a studly coverage linebacker, which may feed into DC Keith Butler's worst vice: putting LBs over slot WRs in man coverage.

But hey! Wilson could probably handle it.

21. Seattle Seahawks

David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin

I still think we're all generally too low on Edwards, who ranks as a Top-20 player on my board for his foot speed, recovery ability, and ability to re-anchor.

Yes, Edwards is still fine-tuning the technique of the position, which he hasn't played for more than a few years. But you can't teach length, size, and agility -- he has all three in spades, as well as over 30 games starting experience at right tackle for a loaded Wisconsin line.

Seattle's offensive line is on the come-up after the release of "coach" Tom Cable, but the right bookend Germain Ifedi still leaves too much weakness for comfort. Edwards plugs into the Seahawks run-first (and run-second and pass-third) approach, given the style of play he enjoyed in Wisconsin.


22. Baltimore Ravens

Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State

If Hakeem runs in the low 4.5s -- and people are saying that's the mark he intends to hit -- he's gonna go somewhere between picks 20 - 40. Take that to the bank.

Sure, he struggled with concentration drops at times -- but you don't find 6-foot-6 guys on the street who have his fluidity in the open field, long speed, and leaping ability to boot. Butler presents a large target to QB Lamar Jackson, who has struggled with accuracy at the NFL level, and offers a quality blocking profile for a team that will run the ball a lot. Great red zone potential as well -- dude's got vines for arms and a 36" vertical.

23. Houston Texans

Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia

If the Houston brass could watch that late-season loss to Philadelphia, and then the wild card exit at the hands of the Colts, and not pour resources into the offensive line...man, I don't even know. Fire everyone.

The situation in Houston is dire, and they should go chasing offensive line talent even if it doesn't fall into their lap. Here, my 23rd ranked player fits oh so snugly with their biggest need, as Cajuste steps right into the RT position over nightmare Kendall Lamm. Or will Seantrel Henderson win the spot? I'd be shocked -- but hey, Julie'n Davenport on the left side could use some competition as well. Throw 'em all in a pot and see who comes out the starter.

Cajuste is big, mean, and very active with his hands throughout the rep -- that tenacity will help with a scrambling quarterback like Watson, who can expose tentative offensive tackles who don't lock up rushers early.

24. Oakland Raiders (via Chicago Bears)

Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State

If the Raiders don't go EDGE early, then the next-best poetic justice is drafting an EDGE with the pick you got from the Mack trade. One of the two has gotta happen.

Sweat doesn't overwhelm with bend on the outside, but he's a high-motor player who can win late in reps with secondary rush moves, or early in reps with length and power. GM Mike Mayock's gonna love that basketball background, too.

He needs to keep developing his first step, and how he attacks the outside rush lane, but he's a better rusher than Bruce Irvin at this stage of his career -- and the Raiders, who averaged a tremendous 0.8 sacks/game this year, need all the help they can get.


25. Philadelphia Eagles


Christian Wilkins, iDL, Clemson



The storybook run of Philadelphia back through the playoffs was truly something to behold -- but like all good things, it finally came to an end.



And when it did, we noticed that, while DT Timmy Jernigan came back from a back injury to start meaningful reps, his quality of play decreased. His contract now non-guaranteed due to the non-football injury, and the depth behind him laughable, Jim Schwartz will look to add pass-rush juice with Wilkins, a 3-tech next to Fletcher Cox and a 1-tech stopgap when Cox isn't on the field.



In 2019, Philadelphia can now rush Cox, Wilkins, Michael Bennett, Derek Barnett, Josh Sweat, and Brandon Graham if he's retained. That's a whole lotta oomph.


26. Indianapolis Colts

Kelvin Harmon, WR, NC State

T.Y. Hilton is a Top-20 WR in the league, no doubt -- but the Colts struggled to call his number in their divisional round loss against the Chiefs, and a lot of that had to do with the lack of secondary weapons to threaten defenses who focus on Hilton.

Harmon wins where Hilton doesn't: with size, with strength, and in contested catch situations. With great releases off the line of scrimmage and good burst through his cuts, Harmon is a tricky matchup for all but the best man coverage corners, which means he can't be erased if teams want to shade safeties over Hilton's routes.

Harmon isn't just a possession guy, either. Dude can get it deep.

27. Oakland Raiders (via Dallas Cowboys)

Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama

Howdy again, Raiders fans!

Our lone first-round RB goes to Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden, who will look to move to an old-school style of football, regardless of the direction of the league at large.

Jacobs is more than the just the name du jour for this running back class. His strong games in the playoffs reaffirmed what many thought off limited exposure in the season: this dude is RB1. His amazing contact balance and wonderfully crisp cuts in the first level make defenders looks foolish as he wiggles his way into open space. I love his willingness to deliver a blow and initiate contact as well.

What with Doug Martin falling flat and Marshawn Lynch out the door, Oakland could use a face-lift at the position.

28. Los Angeles Chargers

Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State

Now, I'm not saying the Chargers need to move on from Forrest Lamp. But he hasn't broken the starting rotation in two years now, and has long-term health concerns.

As such, I like the idea of hedging the bet on Lamp by drafting a player who has OT and OG starting ability -- that's Risner. Right tackle is the immediate fit, as Risner steps over stopgap option Sam Tevi, but you can always mix and match Lamp, Risner, and Tevi to make sure you're starting the best duo on that right side.

While the Charger line was generally solid this season, they also have to start preparing for life without Russell Okung and Mike Pouncey in the upcoming seasons -- those are two older players at a position that's often unkind to 30+ year olds. Trenches should be the focus for a team that got absolutely bodied on Sunday.

29. New England Patriots

Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama

Speaking of preparing for life without an aging player...Gronk is gettin' old!

For all of his dominance with size, speed, and strength, Gronkowski is an injury-prone player who will hit 30 this offseason. The Patriots offense has found success with multiple tight end sets since the 2000s, and they can return to those glory days by grabbing Irv Smith, who has quietly put together some stellar tape for the Crimson Tide.

Smith is one of the best dual-threat TEs in terms of blocking and receiving ability, which will appeal to New England's sensibilities -- he can take over for Gronkowski long-term, when it's finally time for No. 87 to hang up the elbow brace. Smith's elusiveness in the open field might even be more than Gronk has ever brought to New England.

30. Los Angeles Rams

Devin White, LB, LSU

Devin White is the second of two players we're carefully watching (hello, Vikings fans!) as they make their NFL Draft decision today. I'd imagine White will ride the Butkus Award into the sunset of his LSU career and declare, but the dude absolutely loves the program there, and could elect still elect to return with other future NFL defenders in Rashard Lawrence and Kristian Fulton.

If he doesn't, it's a win for the championship-bound Rams, who enjoyed a strong game against the Cowboys' rushing attack, but have generally been wanting at the LB position all year. White can match the speed of the current LA corps, but he brings the trump card they currently lack: size. Dude's a jackhammer with a jetpack.

31. Kansas City Chiefs

Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia

The Chiefs won a playoff game this weekend -- good. The Chiefs won it with Charvarius Ward, a UDFA CB who they traded to get from Dallas, taking starting outside corner reps -- amazing, but bad.

I don't dispute that the Chiefs need help at corner, but I think the entire secondary could use a pick-me-up -- and that's why I love the fit with Juan Thornhill, a CB/S hybrid player who can fill a lot of roles for your defense. Long, fast, and with tremendous ball skills, Thornhill is a nightmare in zone coverage but also has good physicality and route awareness when tagging a man around the field.

Thornhill likely starts next to Eric Berry at the safety position, and rotates down into the box in nickel and other sub-packages.

32. Green Bay Packers (via New Orleans Saints)

Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

The Jimmy Graham era in Green Bay hasn't exactly gone as planned -- though perhaps the offensive shift under new HC Matt LaFleur will help spark his tenure as a Packer.

Even then, Tennessee's offense under LaFleur took the fourth-highest percentage of snaps out of 12 personnel this season -- so the Packers could look to add another talent at TE and win out of those sets. Fant is a supersized wide receiver who wins downfield with excellent body control, explosive physical traits, and soft hands.

In many ways,  Fant is reminiscent of the golden era Jimmy Graham, and a resurgence from Graham could give Green Bay the best mismatches up the seam of any NFL team
