By Ray Mencio
- Arizona Cardinals: Quinnen Williams, DL, Alabama
The Cardinals will be choosing from one of the top 3 defenders as I don’t believe that Kyler Murray is a real option. Quinnen Williams was absolutely dominate this season with 71 total tackles, 19.5 tackles for a loss and 8 sacks. Williams is a dominant defensive linemen who can changes games and thats something the Cardinals desperately need on the front seven of their defense.
2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio St.
To this point Solomon Thomas has been a bust with only 4 career sacks with just 1 coming last year. Thomas did perform better when moved inside on occasion but while Cassius Marsh and Ronald Blair had fine seasons their upside is limited. Nick Bosa can easily be an edge player across from Arik Armstead that gets double digits sack totals every year. This would give the 49ers are very competitive defensive line.
3. New York Jets: Josh Allen, Edge, Kentucky
The Jets will be switching to a 4-3 defense under Gregg Williams and Williams like to bring a lot of pressure. Josh Allen is easily worthy of a top 3 selection and continued to improve throughout his collegiate career. He can play linebacker or defensive end and for the Jets he would most likely have his hand in the ground.
4. Oakland Raiders: Clelin Ferrell, Edge, Clemson
I would expect the Raiders to be active in moving down for teams trying to move up to get Dwayne Haskins. Jacksonville would be an ideal trading partner but I wouldn’t rule out Miami or Washington. If they choose to stay at 4 they will most likely be looking to take the best defensive player on the board. Clelin Ferrell has been a force for 3 years finishing his career with 50 tackles for a loss and 27 sacks.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
Donovan Smith is a free agent and has been very average. It appears he wants to be back and the Bucs want him back but Taylor is going to be the top tackle drafted in this class and the Bucs can’t pass on him. Ultimately, if the Bucs retain Smith they could move him to the right side.
6. New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St.
Eli Manning is now 38 years old. Whether or not you believe he is still a capable quarterback the Giants need to start looking for his predecessor. Haskins is a well put together athlete. He has a strong arm, accurate and has great presence in the pocket. Haskins is only a redshirt sophomore and could be an ideal situation with the Giants to be taken along slowly.
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston
The Jaguars need a quarterback and some reliable weapons on offense. However, in order to get Haskins they will have to move up to get him but they could choose also choose to get veteran quarterback (Ryan Tannehill, Nick Foles or Teddy Bridgewater). The Jaguars still have a very good defense but Malik Jackson is likely to be cut and Marcell Dareus isn’t the same player he used to be. Ed Oliver was in the early conversation as being a top 3 pick but faded somewhat because he didn’t really take another step forward in 2018. He is still an exceptional talent.
8. Detroit Lions: Jachai Polite, Edge, Florida
The Lions need to improve their front 4 and this pick could an end or a tackle. Ziggy Ansah can be a great pass rusher at times and disappear at others. He had a shoulder injury early in the season but came on strong at the end. He is a free agent again this season. Polite had a great year in 2018 with 17.5 tackles for a loss and 11 sacks. He is a very good athlete and I expect him to have a big Combine.
9. Buffalo Bills: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma
The Bills offensive line is extremely bad. They are expected to go hard after offensive linemen in free agency and could possibly have 5 new starters (I would expect a minimum of 3) along their line in 2019. Cody Ford projects as a right tackle or guard and he could have a significant impact on the line immediately. Ford is strong, athletic and has very good technique.
10. Denver Broncos: Greg Little, OT, Mississippi
While Jonah Williams gets a lot of the attention as the best tackle in the class he may not even be the best out of the SEC. Little has great size, athletic ability and technique. He is not a raw prospect at all and he can step in and start right away. He is going to get drafted higher than most believe.
11. Cincinnati Bengals: Devin White, LB, LSU
The Bengals are going to have a different look in 2019 without Marvin Lewis on the sideline. They need more athleticism at linebacker and White is the best linebacker in the class. He has great speed sideline to sideline, is sure tackler and has the ability to cover tight ends and running backs.
12. Green Bay Packers: Brian Burns, Edge, Florida St.
Clay Matthews is a free agent and isn’t the same player he once was. The Packers need to improve their pass rush and Brian Burns is a good fit for new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Burns had 10 sacks and 15.5 tackles for a loss in 2018. He has good speed and athleticism but could stand to get a little stronger.
13. Miami Dolphins: Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan
Cameron Wake is a free agent and now 37 years old. The entire Dolphins defensive line could use an upgrade and Gary is an ideal fit. He can play inside or on the edge. Ideally, he could play defensive end on run downs and move inside on passing situations. He would give Brian Flores some flexibility on defense.
14. Atlanta Falcons: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
Cornerback isn’t the Falcons biggest need as Desmond Trufant is a good starter and Isaiah Oliver has shown a lot of promise but adding a lockdown corner like Greedy Williams is too good to pass up. While Williams didn’t put up the numbers he did as a freshmen, that was due mostly to teams not throwing his way. Williams is a very good cornerback.
15. Washington Redskins: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
With Murray declaring that he wanted to focus on football it should help his draft stock. Murray is somewhat of an anomaly due to his size. He is an exceptional athlete, has a strong arm and can be very accurate. The Redskins are in a tough position as Alex Smith was having a good year until his gruesome injury. Murray can possibly be a starter immediately however, the Redskins need to give whoever their quarterback is some weapons.
16. Carolina Panthers: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
The Panthers will give the available offensive tackles a long look here but cornerback is also a huge need. Murphy is a player who really came on and showed what a great cover corner he can be. He is the complete package and could find himself in the top 10 as the draft gets closer. He has good technique, smart and athletic. He has great footwork which will all help him be an immediate starter.
17. Cleveland Browns: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi
The Browns are on the verge of being a very good team. Jarvis Landry is a very good receiver over the middle of the field but they need to add someone who can stretch the field. Metcalf is a raw prospect and will need to improve his route running but he has good hands and exceptional size and athletic ability. He could be a difference maker for the Browns.
18. Minnesota Vikings: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
Yes, this might be late for Jonah Williams but someone always slips a little and surprises us. Williams is a good sound tackle all around. He has great technique, very strong and smart. However, he doesn’t poses ideal size or length for a NFL tackle. He can make up for that with his other polished traits but there was talk last season that he might be best suited to play guard.
19. Tennessee Titans: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
Marcus Mariota needs some more weapons. Delanie Walker is a very good tight end but missing the majority of the season definitely hurt the Titans. Walker will be 35 at the start of the season and could use a replacement. Hockenson is the complete tight end. He has good hands, can work the middle of the field and is an exceptional blocker.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
The Steelers need to add some playmakers on defense. Former first round pick Artie Burns has been bad after showing some glimpses of being a good corner. He will most likely not be back for a 5th year. Baker is a great value at 20, while he doesn’t have elite speed, he is a physical corner who can play man coverage exceptionally well. He has good technique and can be a starter for a long time.
21. Seattle Seahawks: Montez Sweat, Edge, Mississippi St.
The Seahawks need to improve their pass rush especially if Frank Clarke leaves via free agency. Sweat was somewhat disappointing during the Senior Bowl but had a great career at Mississippi St. Even if Clarke returns the Seahawks could use additional help on the other side.
22. Baltimore Ravens: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona St.
The Ravens are now committed to Lamar Jackson who has shown a lot of promise. The Ravens need to give him some weapons on the outside to help continue his growth. Harry has elite body control and very good hands.His route running is solid and can get better but he has a huge amount of upside.
23. Houston Texans: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington St.
The Texans have has issues at the tackle position for awhile now and need to find some stability for their offense to have sustained success. Dillard had a very good season at Washington St. and has been a consistent starter at left tackle and should transition well into the NFL.
24. Oakland Raiders (from CHI): A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi
The Raiders need to get a lot of weapons on offense. They can start by getting an incredible reliable receiver in A.J. Brown. He runs great routes, has very good hands and is extremely tough. He would be an ideal slot receiver.
25. Philadelphia Eagles: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
The Eagles could go a variety of directions. If one of the top offensive tackles is on the board I would expect them to take one. Cutting Jason Peters, who is now 37, would save $10.5 million. But Deebo Samuel is a good fit for the Eagles. He is a very reliable receiver who looked like a dominate receiver at the Senior Bowl. He has a ton of upside and a high floor.
26. Indianapolis Colts: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson
The Colts defense wasn’t nearly as bad as expected in 2018 but they can certainly use some upgrades. Christian Wilkins was dominate in the National Championship and proved to be the heartbeat of the defense. The interior of their defensive line can definitely use an upgrade.
27. Oakland Raiders (from DAL): Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama
The Raiders need help all over the defense. Mack Wilson would be a great addition to the Raiders defense. He can play the middle or move outside if needed. He does need to improve his play recognition but he is a tough player, who hits hard and knows how to tackle.
28. Los Angeles Chargers: Justin Layne, CB, Michigan St.
Jason Verrett is a very talented cornerback who is a free agent and can’t stay healthy. Out of a possible 80 regular season games he has only played in 25. Justin Layne isn’t on many people's radars as a first round pick but we at NFL Rough Draft believe he is a very good prospect. He was initially a wide receiver but during his transition Layne has improved drastically each year. He has good size, speed and athletic ability and very good ball skills.
29. Kansas City Chiefs: Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama
There is a good chance that the Chiefs move from a 3-4 to a 4-3 in 2019 with Steve Spagnuolo as their new defensive coordinator. They also eliminated the positions of outside linebacker and inside linebacker coaches and have just a linebackers coach which would also indicate a move to a 4-3. It will be interesting to see who moves to what position. With that being said Deionte Thompson would fit well next to Eric Berry in the Chief secondary. Thompson has good ball skills but not elite range.
30. Green Bay Packers (from NO): Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
Jimmy Graham is still a decent tight end but he isn’t the same player he used to be. Noah Fant has elite athleticism and can make a huge difference in the Packers passing game. He needs to improve as a blocker but has excellent ability as a receiver.
31. Los Angeles Rams: Jaylon Ferguson, Edge, Louisiana Tech
The Rams could use a variety of players on defense. They run a very unique defense and could use an upgrade at linebacker. They could also use more depth at defensive end. Jaylon Ferguson put up huge numbers throughout his collegiate career. Ferguson finished his career with 45 sacks which is the most in NCAA Division I history. He also had 68 tackles for a loss which is 3rd all time.
32. New England Patriots: Jerry Tillery, DL, Notre Dame
The Patriots could go a variety of directions with their first round selection. Jerry Tillery is a very underrated prospect who is a great fit for the middle of their defense. Tillery had 10.5 tackles for a loss and 8 sacks this past season. He has a big frame and is strong against the run. He has good pass rush moves and can play on all 3 downs.
33. Arizona Cardinals: Garrett Bradbury, OL, North Carolina St.
Bradbury is worthy of a first round selection and could start immediately for the Cardinals at center.
34. Indianapolis Colts (from NYJ): Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson
Mullen would be a great fit in the Colts defense who need to find good, young corners.
35. Oakland Raiders: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware
The Raiders continue to add to their defense. Adderley has a lot of skill and can play multiple roles in the defensive backfield.
36. San Francisco 49ers: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
Bush is a good value for the 49ers in the second round. He adds some toughness and can play all 3 sports.
37. New York Giants: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas St.
Risner can stick at tackle and can also play move inside to play guard. The Giants need a lot of help along the offensive line.
38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
I believe the Jaguars will be aggressive and go after a veteran quarterback but they could still use a young quarterback to groom.
39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
The Bucs could look at cornerback in the first round and Ya-Sin was very good and could sneak into round 1.
40. Buffalo Bills: Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina St.
The Bills could find their #1 receiver in Harmon who is a great value on Day 2.
41. Denver Broncos: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
Even with the acquisition of Joe Flacco the Broncos still need to find a quarterback for the future. Lock may go in round 1 but there should be a lot of concerns about his upside.
42. Cincinnati Bengals: Irv Smith, TE, Alabama
Tyler Eifert can’t escape the injury bug and its time for them to move on from him. Irv Smith is another well rounded tight end prospect with a ton of upside as a receiver.
43. Detroit Lions: Gerald Willis, DL, Miami (FL)
The Lions really need to fix their defense and it starts up front. This time they go inside and find a very solid interior pass rusher who is solid against the run.
44. Green Bay Packers: Chris Lindstrom, OL, Boston College
The Packers could use some depth on the interior of their offensive line. Lindstrom is very strong and quick off the ball. He will help the running game and is solid in pass protection.
45. Atlanta Falcons: Dexter Lawrence, DL, Clemson
Lawrence is a very good nose tackle and 15 years ago would have been a mid first round pick.
46. Washington Redskins: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
Josh Doctson is a major disappointment and while Jamison Crowder has limited upside and is a free agent. Arcega-Whiteside could be the Redskins top receiver as a rookie.
47. Carolina Panthers: Michael Jordan, OL, Ohio St.
Mike Jordan is a very good interior linemen who can play guard or center. The Panthers need to improve their offensive line and Jordan would be an upgrade.
48. Miami Dolphins: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
The Dolphins relied on Frank Gore a lot last season which is saying something at this point in his career. Kenyan Drake has shown moments of being good but adding Josh Jacobs will help elevate the Dolphins offense.
49. Cleveland Browns: Jeffery Simmons, DL, Mississippi St.
By signing Kareem Hunt the Browns show they aren’t afraid to take a chance on a player and Simmons has an unfortunate past but is a talented defensive linemen.
50. Minnesota Vikings: Dre’Mont Jones, DL, Ohio St.
Sheldon Richardson is a free agent and they could use some additional depth at the position. Jones had a very good year with 13 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks. He is similar to Richardson.
51. Tennessee Titans: Oshane Ximines, Edge, Old Dominion
Ximines had an outstanding year and a career at Old Dominion. He finished with 51 tackles for a loss and 32.5 sacks. He has really good pass rushing moves and his Combine will be telling to how high he goes.
52. Pittsburgh Steelers: Terrell Hanks, LB, New Mexico St.
Hanks is a very athletic linebacker who is converted from safety. The Steelers defense has not been close to the same since Shazier went down. Hanks will bring back some athletic ability to the middle of the defense.
53. Philadelphia Eagles (from BAL): Lonnie Johnson, CB, Kentucky
The Eagles need depth at cornerback. Johnson has good length and is an aggressive cornerback.
54. Houston Texans (From SEA): Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame
The Texans can use some depth and quality players at cornerback and Love is solid all around prospect with good technique.
55. Houston Texans: Miles Sanders, RB, Penn St.
Sanders is going to go a lot higher than people think. He is a dynamic running back with a ton of upside. He is a good receiver and can be a three down back.
56. New England Patriots (from CHI): Taylor Rapp, S, Washington
The Patriots like to utilize multiple safeties on the field in a variety of ways. Rapp is an athletic play making safety that fits in the defense well.
57. Philadelphia Eagles: Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington
McGary looks the part of a right tackle but step into the left tackle spot for the Huskies when Trey Adams went down. He is a converted defensive linemen so he has a very high ceiling.
58. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Nelson, Edge, Iowa
The Colts need to get more pressure on the quarterback and Nelson is a very solid all around defensive linemen.
59. Dallas Cowboys: Kaden Smith, TE, Stanford
The Cowboys have struggled to find a tight end who can replace Jason Witten. Kaden Smith is a good receiver who can be a reliable weapon for Dak Prescott.
60. Los Angeles Chargers: Bobby Evans, OL, Oklahoma
Evans can play right tackle or kick inside to guard. Either way he would prove to be an upgrade for the Chargers.
61. Kansas City Chiefs: Connor McGovern, OL, Penn St.
The Chiefs had a lot of injuries along their interior offensive line this season. McGovern would give them good depth and could be a starter very quickly.
62. New Orleans Saints: Joejuan Williams, CB, Vanderbilt
The Saints don’t have another pick until the 5th round so they need to choose wisely. Williams is a high rising corner and the Saints need to find more help in the defensive backfield.
63. Kansas City Chiefs (from LAR): Germaine Pratt, LB, North Carolina St.
The Chiefs linebackers need an upgrade regardless of the defense they are running. Pratt is a versatile player who can cover running backs and tight ends and also help against the run.
64. New England Patriots: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St.
Butler is slowly becoming one of the more underrated players in this draft. He has been dominate at times and taken over games. He can help stretch the field for the Patriots and be a commanding presence.
65. Arizona Cardinals: Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn St.
Oruwariye has very good length and would be a quality option opposite Patrick Peterson.
66. Oakland Raiders: Benny Snell, RB, Kentucky
The Raiders shouldn’t bring back Marshawn Lynch but will need to improve their running game and Snell has a chance to be a 3 down back.
67. San Francisco 49ers: Keelan Doss, WR, UC-Davis
Doss doesn’t have elite speed but he runs precise routes and good which would complement Dante Pettis.
68. New York Jets: Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A&M
Trenton Cannon could have a bright future but adding another option like Williams who has great speed and strength would be a smart move.
69. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Deiter, OL, Wisconsin
The Jaguars need to improve their offensive line and Deiter has the ability to play guard or tackle.
70. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi St.
Abram is a smart, hard hitting safety who would be a great value for the Bucs in round 3.
71. Denver Broncos: Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
Hollywood is going to miss the Combine which will hurt his stock but his explosiveness and quickness are evident in his film. He is very light for a wide receiver which could hinder his progress.
72. Cincinnati Bengals: Max Scharping, OL, Northern Illinois
Scharping could have a long future as a right tackle or possibly a guard in the NFL, both of which the Bengals could use.
73. New England Patriots (from DET): Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
Rob Gronkowski could retire soon and the Patriots will need to find a replacement. Sternberger is another quality tight end who could go in round 2.
74. Buffalo Bills: Elgton Jenkins, OL, Mississippi St.
The loss of Eric Wood was devastating but they need to find a good replacement.
75. Green Bay Packers: Mike Edwards, S, Kentucky
The Packers have spent a lot of draft picks on their secondary. Edwards does everything well, he is a good tackler, makes plays behind the line of scrimmage and has very good ball skills.
76. Washington Redskins: Erik McCoy, OL, Texas A&M
McCoy can play center or guard and I feel he is one of the more underrated players in this draft.
77. Carolina Panthers: Charles Omenihu, Edge, Texas
The Panthers need to find some depth along the defensive end and Omenihu is a big, strong end who had 18 tackles for a loss and 9.5 sacks in 2018.
78. Miami Dolphins: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
Grier is a quarterback who can develop into a good starter in the NFL. He needs some more polish and should be a day 2 pick.
79. Atlanta Falcons: Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis
Tevin Coleman is a free agent and Devonta Freeman was injured the majority of last season. Henderson has a ton of upside and is an explosive back.
80. Cleveland Browns: David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
The Browns could use a left tackle and while Edwards may not be able to stick there he is as good of an option as they have.
81. Minnesota Vikings: Vosean Joseph, LB, Florida
Joseph has a long way to go to continue to develop but he has good athleticism and has a high upside.
82. Tennessee Titans: Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia
Ridley wasn’t overly productive at Georgia but mostly because of their dominate run game. Ridley has good hands and runs very good routes.
83. Pittsburgh Steelers: Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri
Antonio Brown is done in Pittsburgh so the Steelers will add a receiver in this draft. Hall is an explosive wideout who can help stretch the field.
84. Seattle Seahawks: Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia
The Seahawks offensive line has been in shambles for a few seasons. Cajuste is a boom or bust prospect.
85. Baltimore Ravens: Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic
The Ravens seem to not be able to decide who they want to play running back. Singletary is a dynamic runner who will compliment Dixon and/or Edwards.
86. Houston Texans: DeAndre Walker, Edge, Georgia
Its hard to imagine Clowney not being back next season but either way having depth at the position is necessary.
87. Chicago Bears: Zach Allen, DL, Boston College
This is the Bears first pick and I believe they will go best player available for them. Allen fits well with their scheme.
88. Detroit Lions (from PHI): Corey Ballentine, CB, Washburn
Ballentine has good size and was dominate at Washburn. Even though he played Division II, he received an invite to the combine and performed extremely well.
89. Indianapolis Colts: Antoine Wesley, WR, Texas Tech
Wesley has good size and a ton of upsides. Wesley would be a perfect compliment to T.Y. Hilton.
90. Dallas Cowboys: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida
The Cowboys could use some help at safety and Gardner-Johnson is a great value in round 3. He has good ball skills and good range.
91. Los Angeles Chargers: Renell Wren, DL, Arizona St.
Wren is a big, strong defensive tackle who doesn’t offer a ton as a pass rusher but he can take on double teams and dominate one on one.
92. Kansas City Chiefs: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
Damien Williams filled in nicely after the Chiefs had to let Hunt go. Harris had a very successful career at Alabama, he is tough runner who can be a three down back.
93. New York Jets (from NO): Lamont Gaillard, OL, Georgia
Gaillard is a very good interior offensive linemen who hasn’t received enough credit. He can be a very good center or push over and play guard.
94. Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR): Dillon Mitchell, WR, Oregon
The Jaguars can’t find a reliable and consistent receiver. Mitchell was a 4 star recruit who had a huge year this year. He has good hand, size and speed.
95. Cleveland Browns (from NE): Darnell Savage, S, Maryland
Soome teams are reportedly looking at Savage as a cornerback but he has played the vast majority of his career at safety. He is great range and great ball skills so he could be a starter for the Browns early on.
96. Washington Redskins (comp): Joe Jackson, Edge, Miami (FL)
The Redskins need some depth on the edge. Jackson was very good in 2018 with 14.5 tackles for a loss and 9 sacks. The Redskins have typically used larger defensive ends to play in their 3-4 defense and Jackson fits that mold.
97. New England Patriots (comp): Austin Bryant, Edge, Clemson
Bryant has been overshadowed by his teams but is exceptionally good in his own right. Over the last two years he has 30 tackles for a loss and 16.5 sacks.
98. Los Angeles Rams (comp): Te’Von Coney, LB, Notre Dame
Rams need to fix their linebackers. Coney had a very good career at Notre Dame and sneaks into Day 2.
99. Los Angeles Rams (comp): Khalen Saunders, DL, Western Illinois
Saunders is a great athlete for his size and looked very good at the Senior Bowl which was a big test for the former FCS player.
- Carolina Panthers (comp)*: Amani Hooker, S, Iowa
The Panthers need to find a safety and Hooker is a great fit. He is a big safety with good athleticism and can be an intimidating presence.
- New England Patriots (comp): Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
The Patriots will draft a young quarterback and Stidham has a lot of room to grow and a very high ceiling.
- Baltimore Ravens (comp): Jordan Brailford, Edge, Oklahoma St.
Terrell Suggs can’t play forever and is a free agent this season. Brailford could be a good addition and someone who offers pass rushing ability immediately.
- Arizona Cardinals: Porter Gustin, Edge, USC
Gustin would go higher if he could stay healthy.
- San Francisco 49ers: Jordan Brown, CB, North Dakota St.
Brown was a first team All American in the FCS and has had a great collegiate career.
- New York Jets: Daniel Wise, DL, Kansas
The Jets are switching to a 4-3 and Daniel Wise is a great fit for their new defense.
- Oakland Raiders: Jimmy Moreland, CB, James Madison
Moreland received an invite to the East West Shrine game and ultimately received an invite to the Senior Bowl. He looked very good at both of those and could find himself chosen on day 2.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St.
The Bucs are going to move on from Desean Jackson and Adam Humphries so adding a playmaker to help Mike Evans should be important in this draft.
- New York Giants: Chase Winovich, Edge, Michigan
Winovich is a great value in round 4 and adds good depth for the Giants.
- Jacksonville Jaguars: Chase Hansen, LB, Utah
Hansen had a huge year in 2018 with 114 total tackles, 22 tackles for a loss, 5 sacks, 2 interceptions and 4 passes defended.
- Cincinnati Bengals: Trysten Hill, DL, Central Florida
Hill started to show up when scouts were looking at UCF last year and he was the most noticeable player.
- Detroit Lions: Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts
The Lions traded away Golden Tate and Isabella would be a perfect fit for the Lions offense.
- Buffalo Bills: David Montgomery, RB, Iowa St.
Lesean McCoy won’t play forever and Montgomery is a different style running back. He is tough runner who runs hard and not easy to bring down.
- Baltimore Ravens (from DEN): Javon Patterson, OL, Mississippi
The Ravens will look to improve their interior offensive line this offseason and Patterson fits well.
- Green Bay Packers: Isaiah Buggs, DL, Alabama
Buggs was a part of Alabama dominate defensive front. He put up big numbers but due in part to the teams overall talent.
- Carolina Panthers: Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
Christian McCaffery is one of the best overall running backs in football. But the Panthers could use some depth behind him and someone to help in short yardage situations. Anderson and McCaffery could make for the best combo in the NFL.
- Miami Dolphins: Kendall Sheffield, CB, Ohio St.
The Dolphins could use another cornerback on the opposite side of Xavien Howard.
- Atlanta Falcons: Nate Davis, OL, Charlotte
Nate Davis could be a Day 3 steal. He has a strong base, low center of gravity and can move defenders off the line with ease.
- Green Bay Packers (from WAS): David Long, LB, West Virginia
The Packers could use some depth inside and Long is a good tackler.
- Cleveland Browns: Shareef Miller, Edge, Penn St.
Myles Garrett is a dominant player and Emmanuel Ogbah has been good but they could use some depth. Miller had 15 tackles for a loss and 7.5 sacks last year.
- Minnesota Vikings: Ben Powers, OL, Oklahoma
The Vikings need as much help on their offensive line as they can get. Powers could start immediately.
- Tennessee Titans: L.J. Collier, DL, TCU
The Titans could lose Bennie Logan and Collier could be a good fit in the Titans defensive line.
- Pittsburgh Steelers: Dawson Knox, TE, Mississippi
Jesse James and Xavier Grimble are both free agents and Vance McDonald can’t stay healthy. It would be smart to add a tight end during this portion of the draft.
- Baltimore Ravens: Joe Giles-Harris, LB, Duke
C.J. Mosley is a free agent and while it's hard to imagine him playing elsewhere it can happen. So finding depth is going to be key.
- Seattle Seahawks: Isaiah Johnson, CB, Houston
Johnson is a long corner who has good instincts and fits the Seahawks mold for a defensive back.
- Denver Broncos (from HOU): Christian Miller, Edge, Alabama
The Broncos can use some depth behind Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. Christian Miller was a situational pass rusher at Alabama but made the most of his opportunities with 8.5 sacks last year.
- Chicago Bears: Hamp Cheevers, CB, Boston College
The Bears can use more depth at corner and Cheevers can play inside or outside and has great ball skills.
- Philadelphia Eagles: Mike Weber, RB, Ohio St.
Weber is a great value and the Eagles need to find some help at running back.
- Indianapolis Colts: Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia
Thornhill has a ton of upside and could give the Colts a starter next to Malik Hooker.
- Dallas Cowboys: Kingsley Keke, DL, Texas A&M
Keke is a excellent defensive tackle would could go on day 2. He had a good Senior Bowl and a very good 2018 season.
- Los Angeles Chargers: Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington St.
The 4th round might be a little early for Minshew but the Chargers would be an ideal fit. He can not be rushed at all and can be given a chance to develop behind Rivers.
- Buffalo Bills (from KC): Dylan Mack, DL, Texas A&M
Mack is one of my favorite players in the draft. He has a low center of gravity, gets into the backfield and is extremely tough. With Kyle Williams retiring the Bills will need to fill his shoe.
- New York Giants (from NO): David Sills, WR, West Virginia
Whether or not the Giants from OBJ, they will need to find someone on the other side with Sterling Shepard playing the slot. Sills had a good career at West Virginia and is still learning how to play the position.
- Los Angeles Rams: Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama St.
The Rams roster is put together pretty well. Andrew Whitworth is getting up there and they could use more depth at tackle. Howard would be in a great spot to develop.
- New England Patriots: Chuma Edoga, OT, USC
Edoga is a very underrated offensive tackle and could be in consideration on day 2. He gives the Patriots a guy who can fill in right away if needed.
- Indianapolis Colts (comp): Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia
Hardman hasn’t produced much but would give the Colts an explosive player with the ball in his hands.
- Dallas Cowboys (comp): Beau Benzschawel, OL, Wisconsin
Getting an offensive linemen to help with depth is key for the Cowboys. Benzschawel is a great value in this portion of the draft.
- Atlanta Falcons (comp): Drew Sample, TE, Washington
Sample is a very good blocker and has a ton of value in the run game. He would be a great pairing with Austin Hooper.
- Philadelphia Eagles (comp): Jalen Jelks, Edge, Oregon
Jelks was moved around the defensive line at Oregon but should have a home as a pass rusher in Philadelphia.
- Arizona Cardinals: Elijah Holyfield, RB, Georgia
David Johnson has a ton of talent but he can’t be counted on for as many touches as he received. Holyfield has a ton of talent but gets pushed down in this really good running back class.
- New York Jets: Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio St.
McLaurin could easily go in the 3rd round as he is a well rounded receiver with great special teams ability.
- Oakland Raiders: Isaiah Prince, OT, Ohio St.
The Raiders used two early picks last year on offensive tackles but Prince gives them an option to play 4 positions on the offensive line.
- New York Giants (from SF): Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan
The Giants could use cornerbacks and Bunting is a good value in the fifth round.
- New York Giants: Greg Gaines, DL, Washington
Gaines is another very productive defensive linemen. He is a stout defender and finished 2018 with 55 tackles.
- Cleveland Browns (from JAX): Savion Smith, CB, Alabama
The Browns could use some depth at corner. Smith is a very talented corner but had a rough year and was exposed during the National Championship.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tyree Jackson, QB, Buffalo
The Bucs could use a backup quarterback and Jackson is a developmental prospect who could possibly be a starter.
- Detroit Lions: Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA
The Lions need to find a reliable tight end. Wilson is a great value but had a disappointing week at the Senior Bowl even though he arrived late.
- Buffalo Bills: Kris Boyd, CB, Texas
Tre’Davious White is a great cornerback and finding depth behind him will be key.
- Denver Broncos: Montre’ Hardage, CB, Northwestern
Hardage is a great value in round 5. He had 13 passes defended last year and 51 tackles.
- Cincinnati Bengals: Greg Dortch, WR, Wake Forest
Tyler Boyd took a big step forward last year but adding a slot receiver could be an ideal fit.
- Green Bay Packers: Justice Hill, RB, Oklahoma St.
Aaron Jones is a dynamic running back but he has had trouble staying healthy. Hill is an explosive running back who would fit well into the Packers backfield.
- Miami Dolphins: Preston Williams, WR, Colorado St.
Williams has a lot of talent but has a ton of off the field concerns. Someone may take a chance on him but I wouldn’t before day 3.
- Atlanta Falcons: Ryan Bates, OT, Penn St.
The Falcons need depth along the offensive line. Bates is a solid prospect who can play tackle or guard.
- Washington Redskins: Andrew Wingard, S, Wyoming
I believe Wingard will be a starter in the NFL and is flying way under the radar. He is a solid tackler and a smart, instinctive player.
- Carolina Panthers: Darius Slayton, WR, Auburn
Devin Funchess is a free agent and they still need to add a good receiver and Slayton is a steal.
- Cleveland Browns: Drue Tranquill, LB, Notre Dame
Tranquill had battled injuries but has been a very valuable piece of the Irish defense.
- Denver Broncos (from MIN): Alize Mack, TE, Notre Dame
The Broncos have taken a tight end in the 5th round the last two years so lets make it three. Mack has a high upside.
- Tennessee Titans: Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina St.
Marcus Mariota has not been progressing as much as you would like. The Titans need a backup quarterback and Finley does have upside.
- Buffalo Bills (from PIT): Anthony Johnson, WR, Buffalo
Anthony Johnson is a good value in the 5th round. He his a strong receiver who had a very good career at Buffalo.
- Seattle Seahawks: Sutton Smith, LB, Northern Illinois
Smith is one of the smallest edge rushers we have ever seen in the draft. He will need to transition to linebacker.
- Baltimore Ravens: Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls
The Ravens can roll the dice with all their picks and Pipkns has a high upside. He can also move inside to guard.
- Houston Texans: Dru Samia, OL, Oklahoma
Samia is another good value in round 5. He has potential to be a starter soon in the NFL.
- Chicago Bears: KeeSean Johnson, WR, Fresno St.
Johnson really helped his stock at the East West Shrine game showing what he is capable of. If it wasn’t for such a deep class at wide receiver he would be in contention as a day 2 pick.
- Philadelphia Eagles: Markus Jones, Edge, Angelo St.
Markus Jones may be from Division II Angelo St., but this guy can play football. He was named the Division II Defensive Player of the Year and a First Team All American. In 2018 he had 17.5 sacks and 36.5 tackles for a loss.
- Dallas Cowboys: Malik Carney, Edge, North Carolina
Carney has had a very productive career at North Carolina. He will give the Cowboys some depth and insurance in case Demarcus Lawrence leaves.
- Indianapolis Colts: Oli Udoh, OT, Elon
Udoh is a very intriguing prospect and he can develop as a reserve for the Colts.
- Los Angeles Chargers: Nate Brooks, CB, North Texas
Nate Brooks had a very good year in 2018. He had 6 interceptions, 67 total tackles, 10 passes defended and 4 tackles for a loss.
- Kansas City Chiefs:Terry Beckner, DL, Missouri
Beckner would be a good choice for the Chiefs to give them some depth on the interior of the Chiefs defensive line.
- New Orleans Saints: Josh Oliver, TE, San Jose St.
This is only the second pick for the Saints so they need to make it count. Oliver had a huge year catching the ball and has a ton of upside.
- Los Angeles Rams: Tony Pollard, RB/WR, Memphis
Pollard would be a great fit with the Rams. He can play running back and wide receiver and Sean McVay can utilize him in a variety of ways.
- Cleveland Browns (from NE): Cole Tracy, K, LSU
Tracy is a great weapon for the Browns to pick up and settle down their kicking game. Tracy was a graduate transfer for Division II Assumption College. He holds the record for most field goals in NCAA history.
- New York Giants (comp): Nate Herbig, OL, Stanford
The Giants still need to improve their offensive line. Herbig has been one of the best guards in the Pac 12 the last two seasons.
- Atlanta Falcons (comp): Justin Hollins, Edge, Oregon
Hollins had a good year and can have a good career in the NFL as a situational pass rusher.
- Washington Redskins (comp): Penny Hart, WR, Georgia St.
Hart is a very accomplished receiver with good hands and speed. If the Redskins take Kyler Murray they will need to get him weapons.
- Arizona Cardinals: Gary Jennings, WR, West Virginia
The Cardinals need to find young receivers that are actually good. Christian Kirk look good towards the end of the season but they have missed on Chad Williams and JJ Nelson and Michael Floyd and John Brown didn’t have sustained success.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (from OAK): Matt Wishnowsky, P, Utah
The Steelers kicking game was a mess last year. I would be surprised if they didn’t draft a punter or a kicker. There is a good chance it's a punter as incumbent Jordan Berry is a UFA this offseason.
- San Francisco 49ers: Mike Bell, S, Fresno St.
Bell can play either safety spot and has good size. He can play on special teams and should make a roster.
- New Orleans Saints (from NYJ): Chris Slayton, DL, Syracuse
Slayton gives the Saints good develop and an eventual starter.
- Jacksonville Jaguars: Mark Fields, CB, Clemson
The Jaguars obviously have good cornerbacks but could use some depth.
- Arizona Cardinals (from TB): T.J. Edwards, LB, Wisconsin
Edwards is a great value in the 6th round. It will be important to see how he performs at the Combine.
- New York Giants: Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
Saquon Barkley is a dynamite player but the Giants can’t give him that many touches every year. Love would have been in consideration for a day 2 selection last year but with his down year and now torn ACL he is a great value in the 6th round for the the Giants.
- Buffalo Bills: Derick Roberson, Edge, Sam Houston St.
Roberson had a very good 2018 season collecting 11.5 sacks. He has a chance to be a very good player.
- Denver Broncos: Ross Pierschbacher, OL, Alabama
Pierschbacher played center at Alabama but he can play guard as well. He would contend for playing time.
- Cincinnati Bengals: Landis Durham, Edge, Texas A&M
Durham has 22.5 tackles for a loss and 17 sacks over the last two seasons. The Bengals have some solid defensive ends but Durham is a good value in round 6.
- Detroit Lions: Bobby Okereke, LB, Stanford
The Lions need to fix their defense and adding Bobby Okereke in the 6th round will help special teams and he could develop into a solid NFL starter.
- Green Bay Packers: Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson
The Packers used a lot of picks last year on wide receivers but Randall Cobb is a free agent and Renfrow could replace him in the slot.
- Atlanta Falcons: Ulysees Gilbert, LB, Akron
Gilbert was dominate in 2017 with 140 tackles, 3 interceptions, 9.5 tackles for a loss and 5 sacks. He is a complete linebacker and another guy who can develop into a starter.
- Carolina Panthers: Tyler Roemer, OT, San Diego St.
The Panthers need to improve their offensive line and Roemer is a nice developmental prospect.
- Miami Dolphins: Ben Banogu, Edge, TCU
Banogu has a lot of pass rushing skills and has the traits to be a good special teams player.
- Cleveland Browns: Brian Peavy, CB, Iowa St.
The Peavy was a little bigger he would be a day 2 pick.
- Minnesota Vikings: Travis Homer, RB, Miami (FL)
If the Vikings don’t bring Murray back they will need depth behind Dalvin Cook.
- Baltimore Ravens (from TEN): Jalen Hurd, WR, Baylor
The former running back turned receiver has a lot of upside but needs to learn the nuances of the position.
- Pittsburgh Steelers: Malik Reed, Edge, Nevada
Reed was dominate for Nevada and the Steelers need to find some depth at outside linebacker.
- Baltimore Ravens: Demarcus Christmas, DL, Florida St.
Christmas fits the Ravens defense but he was not as dominant as you would like to see. He has good size and strength to play a five technique.
- Green Bay Packers (from SEA): Martez Ivey, OT, Florida
I believe Ivey is one of the more underrated offensive linemen in this draft. He may never be a Pro Bowler but he can play 4 positions if needed.
- Houston Texans: DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Mississippi
The Texans have had trouble keeping wide receivers healthy. Lodge flew under the radar because of A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf.
- Oakland Raiders (from CHI): Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
This is a great value for the Raiders. Nauta is a great value and a potential starter.
- Philadelphia Eagles: Jahlani Tavai, LB, Hawaii
I’m very high on Tavai. He is a great value who will play hard, give you time as a reserve and on special teams.
- Cincinnati Bengals (from DAL): Marvell Tell, S, USC
The Bengals could just use some depth
- Indianapolis Colts: Ryan Connelly, LB, Wisconsin
Connelly would give the Colts good depth and can be a starter.
- Los Angeles Chargers: Jakobi Meyers, WR, North Carolina St.
Meyers had a huge year and can play on the outside.
- Kansas City Chiefs: Carl Granderson, Edge, Wyoming
Granderson will have to make it as a edge rusher and special teams player.
- New Orleans Saints: Tyre Brady, WR, Marshall
Brady has a chance to be a 6th round gem. The Saints brought in Brandon Marshall and Dez Bryant last year so they will want to address the position.
- Los Angeles Rams: Jaquan Johnson, S, Miami (FL)
The Rams could use a lot of their picks on defense and Johnson is a great value.
- Detroit Lions (from NE): Cortez Broughton, DL, Cincinnati
Broughton gives the Lions another player who can make the Lions roster.
- New England Patriots (comp): David Long, CB, West Virginia
Long doesn’t have great size or great production from last year. He will need to show he can play on special teams.
- Washington Redskins (comp): Khalil Hodge, LB, Buffalo
Hodge is a tackling machine. His Combine will be huge to see how high he gets drafted.
- Arizona Cardinals (comp): Donald Parham, TE, Stetson
Parham is a big tight end, who absolutely dominated his competition at Stetson. He is a very intriguing prospect.
- Philadelphia Eagles (comp): Ugo Amadi, S, Oregon
Amadi is an ideal nickelback and can play in 3 safety sets.
- Minnesota Vikings (comp): Matt Gay, K, Utah
Gay is a very good kicker who looks the part and has a big leg.
- Cincinnati Bengals (comp): Karan Higdon, RB, Michigan
With all of the Bengals picks taking a running back isn’t out of the question.
- Cincinnati Bengals (comp): Bunchy Stallings, OL, Kentucky
Bunchy didn’t get an invite to the Combine which was a travesty. He is a very good interior line prospect.
- San Francisco 49ers (comp): Joshua Miles, OL, Morgan St.
Miles is an athletic guard who opened some eyes at the Shrine Game and received an invite to the Combine.
- Cincinnati Bengals (comp): Iman Marshall, CB, USC
Marshall is a decent prospect but many people believe he will be a day 2 pick.
- Kansas City Chiefs (comp): Lil’Jordan Humphrey, WR, Texas
The Chiefs need to find some depth at wide receiver and Humphrey is a big, strong receiver who is different from the Chiefs current receivers.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from ARZ): Myles Gaskin, RB, Washington
Ronald Jones was disappointing but still has some upside. Either way Gaskin is a great value in the 7th round.
- Kansas City Chiefs (from SF): Michael Jackson, CB, Miami (FL)
The Chiefs need corners and Jackson is a big corner, who plays physical.
- New York Jets: Dennis Daley, OT, South Carolina
Daley is a solid prospect who’s future might be at guard.
- Oakland Raiders: Maxx Crosby, Edge, Eastern Michigan
Crosby had 19 tackles for a loss and 7.5 sacks in 2018 and the Raiders need to find guys who can make plays in the backfield.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (from TB): Paul Adams, OL, Missouri
The Steelers could go a variety of directions but Adams is a high character guy whos future is at right tackle or guard.
- Houston Texans (from DEN): Josiah Tauaefa, LB, UTSA
Tauaefa had a great freshmen season but was hindered by injuries as a sophomore. In 2018, he totaled 111 tackles, 11.5 tackles for a loss and 4.5 sacks.
- Cleveland Browns (from JAX): Gary Johnson, LB, Texas
This is a great value for the Browns. Johnson can develop as a starter but should at least be able to contribute on special teams.
- Chicago Bears (from PHI): Qadree Ollison, RB, Pittsburgh
Jordan Howard could be moving on from the Bears within the next two years. Ollison is a good compliment to Cohen and could be a good fit in the Bears offense.
- Cincinnati Bengals: Dax Raymond, TE, Utah St.
The Bengals have a ton of picks so using two picks on this deep tight end class is certainly not out of the question.
- Detroit Lions: Wes Hills, RB, Slippery Rock
Right now the Lions only have Kerryon Johnson and Theo Riddick under contract so adding a running back in the 3rd day of the draft could be important. Hills had a strong year and was dominate at Slippery Rock.
- Buffalo Bills: Ben Burr-Kirven, LB, Washington
Burr-Kirven lead the FCS in total tackles with 176 on the year in 2018. He is somewhat limited with size and speed but can be a useful backup and special teams player.
- Green Bay Packers: Jamel Dean, CB, Auburn
The Packers have used a lot of early picks on cornerbacks so using a late pick might catch a good player. Dean has great size and should test well at the Combine.
- Washington Redskins: Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
Jordan Reed is a dynamic tight end but injuries have caught up to him. Moreau stock could climb with a good Combine.
- Buffalo Bills (from CAR): Tommy Sweeney, TE, Boston College
Sweeney is a well rounded tight end and gives the Bills a possible late round starter.
- Detroit Lions (from MIA): Sione Takitaki, LB, BYU
Takitaki is another possible diamond in the rough. He is a good tackler with a high football IQ.
- Atlanta Falcons: Marquise Blair, S, Utah
The Falcons secondary couldn’t stay healthy last year so looking for depth will be key this offseason.
- New Orleans Saints (from CLE): Brett Rypien, QB, Boise St.
Rypien is a good project for the Saints. He has some tools to possibly develop into a starter.
- New York Giants (from MIN): Tre Lamar, LB, Clemson
Tre Lamar is good at the line of scrimmage but off the line of scrimmage he can’t really cover. He needs better lateral agility to go higher.
- Tennessee Titans: Alec Eberle, OL, Florida St.
Eberle is a versatile interior offensive linemen that could be a good value in round 7.
- Miami Dolphins (from CLE): Kendall Joseph, LB, Clemson
Joseph put up good numbers in his career and had better athleticism than Tre Lamar but isn’t as stout against the run.
- Oakland Raiders (from SEA): Travis Fulgham, WR, Old Dominion
With all of the picks the Raiders picks they should use multiple on wide receivers. Fulgham looked good all season and at the Senior Bowl.
- Jacksonville Jaguars (from BAL): C.J. Conrad, TE, Kentucky
Conrad is a well rounded tight end who could make the team.
- Denver Broncos (from HOU): Kevin Givens, DL, Penn St.
Givens is a good value and fits well into the Broncos defense.
- Chicago Bears: Austin Seibert, K, Oklahoma
The Bears moved on from Cody Parkey so they will need to bring in a kicker. Seibert had a great collegiate career and has shown a strong leg.
- New England Patriots (from PHI): Emmanuel Butler, WR, Northern Arizona
The Patriots have a lot of picks. Butler has a big frame but his production slipped a little his senior season. He is a low risk, high reward type player.
- Indianapolis Colts: Kareem Orr, CB, Chattanooga
Orr has a ton of upside as he was a dominate freshmen at Arizona St. He received numerous accolades that season but ultimately transferred to Chattanooga for personal reasons.
- Dallas Cowboys: B.J. Blunt, LB, McNeese St.
Blount is undersized but he is going to be a very good special teamer and someone who can play on passing downs.
- Los Angeles Chargers: Jake Bailey, P, Stanford
Bailey is a solid punter and should win the job in camp.
- New England Patriots (from KC): Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska
The Patriots don’t necessarily need a running back but Ozigbo is a big, strong back who will entice the Patriots.
- New Orleans Saints: Alex Mattison, RB, Boise St.
Mark Ingram is a free agent and may not be back so the Saints will need to find another running back to compliment Alvin Kamara.
- New York Giants (from LAR): Delvon Randall, S, Temple
Randall didn’t receive a Combine invite even though he deserved one. He is someone who could eventually be a starter but at the minimum I expect him to excel on special teams.
- New England Patriots: Dre Greenlaw, LB, Arkansas
Greenlaw is a good tackler but also solid in coverage. He is an interesting prospect.
- Minnesota Vikings (comp): Jordan Ta’amu, QB, Mississippi
Ta’amu is worth gambling on late on day 3. He could develop into a solid NFL backup.
- Arizona Cardinals (comp): John Comiskey, DL, Charleston
Comiskey is a small school prospect who had a great collegiate career but it is difficult to find a perfect spot for him.
- Arizona Cardinals (comp): Jackson Barton, OT, Utah
The Cardinals need to improve their offensive line and Barton is a great gamble in the 7th round.
- Minnesota Vikings (comp): Kendall Blanton, TE, Missouri
Blanton is a good value pick who can serve as a backup and will at the least stick on someones practice squad.
- Los Angeles Rams (comp): Jazz Ferguson, WR, Northwestern St.
Ferguson has a ton of upside and has great size and speed to go with his abilities as a receiver. He is a very intriguing developmental prospect.
- New England Patriots (comp): Kahale Warring, TE, San Diego St.
Another weapon for Tom Brady. Warring is a deceptively good athlete who will cause mismatch problems.
- Washington Redskins (comp): Byron Cowart, DL, Auburn
Cowart doesn’t have an ideal position in the NFL but he can end against the run and move inside on passing situations.
- Arizona Cardinals (comp): B.J. Autry, OL, Jacksonville St.
Autry is a big, stout guard, who, if he can keep his weight in check, can develop into a starter.
