NFL Mock Draft Competition

April 25, 2019

This mock draft is being put together the day of the 2019 NFL draft.  We created our mock based on team needs and our  personal liking to how the player fits with the team that drafted him. Let us know what you think!

  1. Arizona Cardinals- Scott Mikulski:  Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

Analysis: Murray fits Coach Kliff Kingsbury’s offense much better than incumbent quarterback, Josh Rosen.

Jonny Wood: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

Analysis: Williams will be an All-Pro player and play in the NFL 12-15 years.

  1. San Francisco 49ers- Scott Mikulski: Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio St.

Analysis: Coach Kyle Shanahan gets the top-ranked edge rusher in the draft.

Jonny Wood: Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio St.

Analysis: Bosa will help continue Shanahan’s revamped defense.

  1. New York Jets- Scott Mikulski: Josh Allen, Edge, Kentucky

Analysis: The Jets could use Allen rushing the passer after free agent Anthony Barr decided to remain in Minnesota.

Jonny Wood: Josh Allen, Edge, Kentucky

Analysis: Allen can play with his hand in the dirt or as a standup rusher in a 3-4.

  1. Oakland Raiders- Scott Mikulski: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

Analysis: Williams is too dominant against the run to pass up.

Jonny Wood- Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

Analysis: Jon Gruden’s patience pays off and he gets the quarterback he wanted.

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Scott Mikulski: Devin White, ILB, LSU

Analysis: Middle linebacker Kwon Alexander bolted in free agency and White would fit the bill as an excellent replacement in the middle of the Bucs’ linebacker core.

Jonny Wood: Devin White, ILB, LSU

Analysis: Tampa’s defense is in need of a playmaker like White.

  1. New York Giants- Scott Mikulski: Rashan Gary, DL Michigan

Analysis: The Giants need to draft the heir apparent to quarterback Eli Manning, but pass for a defensive lineman who underachieved in college.

Jonny Wood: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

Analysis: Taylor gives the Giants a strong left tackle to protect the quarterback for years to come.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Scott Mikulski: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

Analysis: Look for the Jaguars to protect their investment in new quarterback Nick Foles. Taylor moved ahead of Jonah Williams after the combine.

Jonny Wood: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

Analysis: Metcalf gives Nick Foles a deep threat downfield.

  1. Detroit Lions- Scott Mikulski: Brian Burns, Edge, Florida St.

Analysis: The Lions can use an edge rusher to play opposite free agent signee Trey Flowers. Burns gets the nod after an excellent combine.

Jonny Wood: T.J. Hockensen, TE, Iowa

Analysis: Quarterback Matt Stafford gets a security blanket in Hockensen.

  1. Buffalo Bills- Scott Mikulski: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

Analysis:  Oliver is a motor in the middle of the defensive line who is strong asgainst the run and can still administer sacks.

Jonny Wood: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

Analysis: The Bills get a top five talent who can get to the quarterback from the middle of the line.

  1. Denver Broncos- Scott Mikulski: Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan

Analysis: Bush can play all three linebacker positions and would breathe fresh air into a stagnant Broncos’ defense.

Jonny Wood: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

Analysis: GM John Elway takes his latest chance on a franchise quarterback.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals- Scott Mikulski: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington St.

Analysis: While drafting Lock as the future franchise quarterback is tempting, the Bengals go with Dillard who many consider as the top left tackle in the draft who started 39 games his last three years.

Jonny Wood: Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan

Analysis: Bush will be an excellent replacement for the departed Vontaze Burfict.

  1. Green Bay Packers- Scott Mikulski: T.J. Hockensen, TE, Iowa

Analysis: Hockenson, a mismatch against linebackers and safeties, is an upgrade over Jimmy Graham who has fallen quicker than the Titanic. He could be used very similarly to the way the Eagles use Zach Ertz.

Jonny Wood: Brian Burns, Edge, Florida St.

Analysis: The Packers need an edge rusher like Burns to help their defense.

  1. Miami Dolphins- Scott Mikulski: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson

Analysis: Wilkins is coming off a national championship and is a 315 pounder who clogs the middle of the defensive line.

Jonny Wood: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson

Jonny Wood: Rashan Gary, Edge Michigan

Analysis: Atlanta gets an edge rusher who they are hoping plays to his potential he flashed as the number one recruit out of high school.

  1. Washington Redskins- Scott Mikulski: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

Analysis: The Redskins pull the trigger and choose Lock over Ohio St. QB Dwayne Haskins.

Jonny Wood: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St

Analysis: With Lock off the board to the Broncos at 10, the Redskins get who many believe to  be the top quarterback in the draft.

  1. Carolina Panthers- Scott Mikulski: Clelin Ferrell, Edge, Clemson

Analysis: Carolina has many holes to fill, but head coach Ron Rivera is a former defensive coach who knows a good pass rush leads to a dynamic defense.

Jonny Wood: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington St.

Analysis: Dillard is the kind of tackle Cam Newyon needs to protect his blind side.

  1. New York Giants- Scott Mikulski: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

Analysis: After passing on a quarterback at six, the Giants grab Jones, an Eli Manning clone, with a cerebral football-mind and strong mechanics.

Jonny Wood: Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma

Analysis: Ford is a strong tackle who will help the Giants continue to revamp their offensive line.

  1. Minnesota Vikings- Who they will select: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama

Analysis: The Vikings are looking to shore up their interior offensive line and allow running back Dalvin Cook to run more north-south. Williams has played tackle in college, but could be better served playing guard in the NFL.

Jonny Wood: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama

Analysis: Williams is a strong player who is determined to play tackle in the NFL.

  1. Tennessee Titans- Scott Mikulski: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

Analysis: It is time to replace Delanie Walker and add another weapon for quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Analysis: The Seahawks get a steal nabbing Sweat at 21,

  1. Baltimore Ravens- Scott Mikulski: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

Analysis: The remaining receiving group of the team has a combined 81 career catches. The Ravens nab this year’s “combine beast” to help second-year signal caller Lamar Jackson.

Jonny Wood: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa St.

Analysis: Butler gives Lamar Jackson a strong target to help move the chains.

  1. Houston Texans- Scott Mikulski: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma

Analysis: Quarterback Deshaun Watson was sacked 62 times and needs an upgrade to protect her blindside.

Jonny Wood: Garrett Bradbury, C/G, North Carolina St.

Analysis: Bradbury will be a significant upgrae to the interior offensive line of the Texans.

  1. Oakland Raiders- Scott Mikulski: Joshua Jacobs, RB, Alabama

Analysis: With Beast Mode retiring for a second time this week, Jacobs gives the Raiders a three-down back.

Jonny Wood: Joshua Jacobs, RB, Alabama

  1. Philadelphia Eagles- Scott Mikulski: Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, WR, Oklahoma

Analysis: The Eagles get the best receiver in the draft.

Jonny Wood: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

Analysis: Another strong pick for the revamped Raiders.

  1. Los Angeles Chargers- Scott Mikulski: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson

Analysis: The Chargers need to provide further protection for Philip Rivers if he is to appear in a Super Bowl before he retires, but Lawrence’s powerful body in the middle of the defensive line is too good to pass up.

Jonny Wood: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State

Analysis: Risner is drafted to protect stud quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs- Scott Mikulski: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

Analysis: Baker will allow new defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnola, to blitz the quarterback more often.

Jonny Wood: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

Analysis: Gardner-Johnson is the heir-apparent to the departed Eric Berry,

  1. Green Bay Packers- Scott Mikulski: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona St.

Analysis: The Packers strike gold adding a WR and TE to the game’s top quarterback.

Jonny Wood: Darnell Savage, S, Maryland

  1. Los Angeles Rams- Scott Mikulski: Garrett Bradbury, C/G, North Carolina St.

Analysis: Bradbury fills a void left after John Sullivan left via free agency.

Jonny Wood: DeAndre Baker, CB, Georgia

Analysis: The Rams were schooled in the secondary last seasondespite having Marcus Peters and Aquib Talib.
