Henry’s 7-Round NFL Mock Draft 1.0

Advertisement

It’s officially draft month! With that being the case, our team of draft and analytical writers are working hard to pump out draft content that will help prepare you for the NFL’s 2019 Draft!

With free agency now simmering on the back-burner, the NFL Draft has taken president as the main topic of conversation in the world of football. All 32 fan bases are starved for the adrenaline rush that comes with each selection, so I have pieced together a sample for what each team should/could do in this year’s draft.

Without further ado, the Arizona Cardinals are on the clock…


1st Round

1 Arizona: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

The Cardinals need to make the all-too-obvious plunge here and get the most dynamic player in the draft. With an insurmountable amount of holes on the roster, new head coach Kliff Kingsbury will be tasked with creating a competitive offense and Murray should be at the forefront.

2 San Francisco: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State

Easily the most talented prospect in the draft from all angles. Bosa not only helps an ailing defensive unit, but has the potential to completely reshape the impact that it provides on the field.

3 NY Jets: Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama

The Jets need help. While their offense ideally will begin to mesh and blossom this season with the addition of running back Le’Veon Bell, the defense has been as bad, if not worse than the offense as of late. Williams provides an anchor along the defensive line that should help put pressure on the opposition week-in and week-out.

4 Oakland: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky

As it pertains to pass rushers, Allen and Brian Burns are fairly parallel, so scheme fits will be important here. Although I’m sure John Gruden would love to draft a D.K. Metcalf or a quarterback here, the more logical option should be to try to replace Khalil Mack. Allen is certainly not a Mack clone, but could make a big difference for a very leaky Oakland defense.

5 Tampa Bay: Devin White, LB, LSU

Simply put, Devin White is a thumper. He has a nose for the ball and the agility to not just be a one-dimensional pony at the linebacker position. White, alongside Lavonte David would be a terror for NFC opponents.

6 NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

The Eli Manning era HAS to be coming to a close. The Giants have continued to show loyalty that few franchises not named the New England Patriots have displayed. Manning gave the Giants two Super Bowls, but has failed to show any sort of difference making in years since. So, with the 6th overall selection, the Giants move towards the future with the most well-rounded quarterback in the draft.

7 Jacksonville: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

As mentioned before, Burns could jump Allen depending on preference. However, Burns is more of a straight speed rusher and is not as refined as Allen when it comes to setting the edge and helping in run support. The benefit is that the Jaguars are lacking speed rushers so this should be an ideal landing spot.

8 Detroit: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

At some point the Lions just have to make a move to fix one side of the ball. In recent years, the offense has been competitive with Matthew Stafford at the helm, but the team suffered from an absent defense. The team should focus on “Patriot Way” here and nab the number one corner back in the 2019 draft class.

9 Buffalo: Jeffery Simmons, DL, Mississippi State

With some young secondary pieces in place and a young quarterback set to make a jump in his sophomore season, the Bills work towards solidifying the defensive front. Simmons is a multi threat defensive weapon that can play anywhere along the front and will be a problem for opposing coordinators.

10 Denver: Devin Bush Jr., LB, Michigan

Devin Bush is a long-range linebacker who should fit nicely as an interior leader within the Broncos front-seven. Elway may flirt with the idea of taking a quarterback here, but his draft history should not provide confidence in his evaluation of young QB’s.

11 Cincinnati: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

Much like the Broncos, the future in Cincinnati does not appear to include Andy Dalton. However, rather than entrusting their rookie head coach with a rookie quarterback, the Bengals should look to solidify one of the most glaring roster holes here and select the best lineman in the draft.

12 Green Bay: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, Davante Adams and D.K. Metcalf? This move will have NFC North defensive coordinators wetting themselves before facing this lineup. In an effort to replace a rotation of second tier receivers outside of Adams, the Packers choose to make their offense just that much more ridiculous in 2019.

13 Miami: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

Again, like the Bengals before them, the Dolphins have a serious quarterback issue. However, the Dolphins seem to be very high on a couple of 2020 quarterbacks and may look to beef up the protection upfront.

14 Atlanta: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson

Atlanta has struggled to mimic the defenses that head coach Dan Quinn guided in the Seattle, but grabbing a mammoth like Wilkins to disrupt the middle off the offense would sure be an asset towards that goal.

15 Washington: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

With Alex Smith’s injury and the incompetence of Case Keenum and Colt McCoy as starting quarterbacks, this move just makes too much sense. Regardless of whether Jones would start this season or not, Washington must find a future at the position that doesn’t include any more stop-gaps.

16 Carolina: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma

The Panthers will always ride or die with Cam Newton at the helm, but the team lands much more towards the former when he is healthy. How do you keep a quarterback healthy? You protect him. Ford isn’t a flashy guy, but has a lunch-pale mentality that should be welcomed by his quarterback.

17 NY Giants (CLE): Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson

The Giants already nabbed the quarterback of the future, so taking a swing at a top EDGE rusher only seems appropriate. Ferrell is a very good edge setter, but can lack the speed to rack up a ton of sacks. Regardless, the Giants need some pressure and stability along the defensive line and Ferrell will certainly provide that.

18 Minnesota: Garrett Bradbury, OL, NC State

Bradbury is a versatile interior lineman that should be able to step in on Day 1 and command a starting role. His versatility should be welcomed by an offense that has struggled to keep guys healthy and productive upfront.

19 Tennessee: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State

Whether it’s Marcus Mariota or Ryan Tannehill at quarterback this season, this offense needs some true weapons. It is clear that a run-first attack can’t win a Super Bowl in this day and age, so the Titans choose to add some artillery to its arsenal.

20 Pittsburgh: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State

With the departure of Antonio Brown this offseason, the Steelers have a hole across from Smith-Shuster and Harry fits that mold. No, he is not Brown, but his production and catch radius shouldn’t be ignored.

21 Seattle: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

Seattle will be tasked with repairing a defense that has lost a ton of talent within the past 2-3 offseasons. Gardner-Johnson is a versatile defensive back that can fit almost anywhere within the secondary. He has played corner back and safety in college, providing productivity at both spots, and can be a tone setter.

22 Baltimore: Chris Lindstrom, OL, Boston College

The Ravens lost a lot of pieces on defense this offseason, but providing protection for their sophomore quarterback takes priority here. Lindstrom can play anywhere on the interior of the offensive line and has a great motor in the run game, something that should be attractive for Baltimore.

23 Houston: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State

Deshaun Watson has taken a beating in his first two NFL seasons. The resolution for that problem begins with Risner, a lineman who has played guard and tackle in college and can make a big impact on a weak offensive front.

24 Oakland (CHI): Joshua Jacobs, RB, Alabama

Derek Carr has not developed into the top of the line quarterback that the Raiders thought he would be at this point, but part of that may be the absent running game in Oakland. Marshawn Lynch was a nice fill in last season, but did not provide the spark necessary to keep defenses from focusing on the passing game.

25 Philadelphia: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware

How do you make a Super Bowl contending team significantly better? You mesh the youth with the experience. Malcolm Jenkins and Nasir Adderley provide a combination that can be a nightmare for offenses. With the return of Ronald Darby, the Eagles defense could be a nuisance for offenses in 2019.

26 Indianapolis: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston

An undersized defensive lineman with an amazing motor, Oliver is a blue-collar player who fits the mold of a Chris Ballard type of player. The Colts should look to add to a revamped defensive unit that surprised many in 2018.

27 Oakland (DAL): T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa

Another move to help Derek Carr would be to fill the void left by Jared Cook’s departure. Hockenson is one of the best tight ends in the class and is a well rounded weapon at the position.

28 LA Chargers: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

The Chargers are not in desperate need of a quarterback, but Lock falling in this mock may effect their outlook on the position. The team’s brass has been rumored to be interested in Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen, so that situation may also adjust the expectation here.

29 Kansas City: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

The Chiefs are in the midst of a complete defensive overhaul. They have made a flurry of second-tier moves along the front-seven and should look to land a mainstay within the defensive secondary. Williams is one of the top corner backs in the class and has the skill to play both man and zone given the versatility of new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s scheme.

30 Green Bay (NO): Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

Along with Hockenson, Fant is a true weapon at the tight end position. Drafting Fant and adding him to that before-mentioned arsenal of weapons in Green Bay would give Rodgers everything he could ever want within his offense.

31 LA Rams: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State

Sweat falls a bit in this mock due to team needs and the overall depth of the position in this year’s class. With the Rams sitting pretty here, they choose to add a dynamic pass rusher to make the Super Bowl runner-up even that much more scary.

32 New England: Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama

The Patriots always find a way of landing great roster fits. Smith is not as good of a blocker as Hockenson or Fant, nor is he the consistent weapon that they are in the passing game. But, with time he could blossom as Rob Gronkowski’s replacement.
