2019 NFL Mock Draft: Week 11

The college football season is winding down, and now is a good time for a mock draft. I will try to do them weekly from now until the end of the season.

# Team Player H/W Hometown Position School 18-19 Stats
1. Oakland Raiders (1-8) g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl Nick Bosa, Jr 6’4, 263 lbs Fort Lauderdale, FL DE Ohio State 14 tackles, 6 sacks
The Raiders now have three first round picks as they look to completely reshape the roster. Nick Bosa is every as good as his superstar brother Joey, and has chosen to forego the rest of his college career and prep for the draft, a decision that I think is a no-brainer but a that lot of ESPN comment section fans seem to not comprehend. This is a job, and he needs to protect himself to best provide for himself and his family, just as any one else would do.
2. San Francisco 49ers (2-7) 17994552009 Ed Oliver, Jr 6’3, 292 lbs Houston, TX DT Houston 54 tackles, 3 sacks
Scouts are saying that Ed Oliver is a bit too small, and the Aaron Donald comparisons were never fair, but he is still perhaps the most talented player in college football. Despite constant double teams, he has lived in opponents backfield, and the sacks are finally coming, with three in his past two games played. Solomon Thomas and Erik Armstead have not developed like the 49ers have hoped, so Oliver will provide much-needed pass rush.
3. New York Giants (2-7) 919 Dwayne Haskins, So 6’3, 220 lbs Potomac, MD QB Ohio State 266-386, 3280 yards, 33 TD, 6 INT
All eyes have been on Justin Herbert, Drew Lock or even Daniel Jones, but give me Dwayne Haskins over any other quarterback prospect. He may struggle out the gate due to lack of experience, like sophomore Sam Darnold, but the talent is there to be a great one. He has been in great control of the Buckeyes offense, and is wise beyond his years. The Giants need to move on from Eli Manning, and I definitely like Haskins the best out of a weak quarterback group.
4. Arizona Cardinals (2-7) kwth8f1cfa2sch5xhjjfaof90 Clelin Ferrell, Jr 6’5, 260 lbs Richmond, VA DE Clemson 33 tackles, 8.5 sacks
The Cardinals have one of the least talented rosters in the NFL, so the best player available strategy would be the right move here. Clelin Ferrell has been the best of a great defensive line at Clemson, registering at least one sack in all but three games this year. He has the ability to play in any scheme, and would be a great counterpart to Chandler Jones in the desert.
5. New York Jets (3-7) v7tehkwthrwefgounvi7znf5k Jonah Williams, Jr 6’5, 301 Folsom, CA OT Alabama N/A
Sam Darnold has not been good, but the Gang Green offensive line has done him no favors. Jonah Williams does not have elite size, but is very athletic and should be a Jake Matthews-like tackle at the next level.
6. Buffalo Bills (3-7) n0fd1z6xmhigb0eej3323ebwq Greg Little, Jr 6’6, 325 lbs Allen, TX OT Ole’ Miss N/A
Somehow, the Buffalo Bills do not have the worst record in football, but make no mistake, they are very bad. Keeping franchise hopeful Josh Allen upright is priority number one. Like former Rebels tackle Laremy Tunsil, Greg Little is his own worst enemy, as constant effort seems to be a criticism. He is as talented as any offensive lineman in this draft, and should be a top ten pick.
7. Detroit Lions (3-6) cwuyv0w15ruuk34j9qnfuoif9 Rashan Gary, Jr 6’5, 283 lbs Plainfield, NJ DE Michigan 24 tackles, 2 sacks
A lack of talent has really done Detroit in lately. Defense has been a major issue, and Rashan Gary is the most talented defender available. Injuries have made this season a bit of a wash, but he offers tantalizing talent and versatility as an all around defensive lineman.
8. Denver Broncos (3-6) 9ebzja2zfeigaziee8y605aqp Justin Herbert, Jr 6’6, 233 lbs Shreveport, LA CB Oregon 23 tackles, 2 INT
Everyone, except John Elway apparently, figured the career journeyman Case Keenum would fall back to earth. He has, of course, and Denver is in the market for a new quarterback once again. Justin Herbert is far from perfect, but he has great size, a strong arm, and unlike Paxton Lynch, is not simply a statue behind center.
9. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6) 15988562013 Daniel Jones, Jr 6’5, 220 lbs Charlotte, NC QB Duke 166-272, 1948 yards, 16 TD, 6 INT
Jacksonville has been the most disappointing team in the NFL, thanks in part to terrible quarterback play, but thanks in more part to a ton of injuries. It is hard for a mediocre quarterback like Blake Bortles to be successful when he is missing his top WR (Marqise Lee), top RB (Leonard Fournette), top TE (Austin Seferian-Jenkins) and top OT (Cam Robinson). Still, it is clear as day that Bortles is not the answer, and if Jacksonville can not find a short-term successor, they need to try again in the draft. Daniel Jones has great size and is a very good athlete. Hopefully he can be the answer to what has been a question mark in Jacksonville since Mark Brunell.
10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-6) 17636702014 Greedy Williams, Jr 6’3, 184 lbs Shreveport, LA CB LSU 28 tackles, 2 INT
The Buccaneers coaching staff benched Jameis Winston, but unfortunately they cannot bench the entire defense, which has been historically bad this year. Greedy Williams is no Patrick Peterson, but is a strong talent in his own right who has the potential to become one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL.
11. Cleveland Browns (3-6-1) 15578552015 Devin White, Jr 6’1, 240 lbs Springhill, LA MLB LSU 88 tackles, 1 sack
Cleveland seems to finally have gotten it right with the Baker Mayfield selection. Having a legit quarterback makes the draft process much less stressful. Despite some bad missed tackles, Devin White has been as good as advertised for LSU, and would be a great fit in the middle of an up and coming Browns defense.
12. Indianapolis Colts (4-5) 593 Deandre Baker, Sr 5’11, 185 lbs Miami, FL CB Georgia 33 tackles, 2 INT
Even though Andrew Luck has not been quite the same player he was before the shoulder injury, he still helps masked the extreme lack of talent in Indianapolis. The Colts need help everywhere. Deandre Baker is not an elite athlete, but he is an analytical fan’s dream. Teams simply do not throw his way. He would be a great, safe selection here.
13. Oakland Raiders (1-8) (from Cowboys) g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl AJ Brown, Jr 6’1, 230 lbs Starkville, MS WR Ole’ Miss 72 rec, 1047 yards, 5 TD
The Raiders use the pick they got for Amari Cooper to select his replacement. Brown is not a 6’5 burner, but he is built like a tight end and is very physical with great hands. He should be more consistent than Cooper, at the least.
14. Seattle Seahawks (4-5) pfiobtreaq7j0pzvadktsc6jv Dre’Mont Jones, Jr 6’3, 286 lbs Cleveland, OH DT Ohio State 30 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 1 INT
I am going to assume that Seattle will continue to ignore the offensive line and draft another defensive lineman. Dre’Mont Jones is a bit undersized but has been a fantastic pass rusher for the Buckeyes. He has the ability to play on the inside and outside for a Seahawks defense that is lacking pass rushers.
15. Atlanta Falcons (4-5) 299 Dexter Lawrence, Jr 6’4, 540 lbs Wake Forest, NC DT Clemson 24 tackles, 0.5 sacks
I was convinced that Dexter Lawrence was a future number one overall pick after an amazing freshman season. He is still an elite prospect, but like a lot of players who are bigger, stronger and better than most everyone else, he seems to disappear for long stretches at a time. Lawrence can be better than a Dontari Poe like run stopper, but it will be up to him.
16. Baltimore Ravens (4-5) 318 Marquise Brown, Jr 5’10, 168 lbs Hollywood, FL WR Oklahoma 53 rec, 968 yards, 8 TD
The Ravens have the most pathetic receiver group in the NFL, and a dynamic talent like Marquise Brown would give the offense quite a boost. Brown is undersized, but is one of the fastest players in college football. He is not a one trick pony, as he has the hands to be a number one receiver who can run the entire route tree.
17. Philadelphia Eagles (4-5) 960 David Edwards, Jr 6’7, 315 lbs Downers Grove, IL OT Wisconsin N/A
Lane Johnson and Jason Peters have been a good tackle combo, but Peters is nearing the end of his career and Philadelphia would do well to keep the line intact. David Edwards has great size and agility, though he may be locked in to the right tackle spot, which is why he is still available here.
18. Miami Dolphins (5-5) 15041052013 Quinnen Williams, So 6’4, 285 lbs Birmingham, AL DT Alabama 49 tackles, 5 sacks
The redshirt sophomore Quinnen Williams will most likely be gone long before this point. Despite only being a sophomore, he might be the best player on Alabama’s defense, which is obviously saying a lot. The Dolphins do not have much in the way of interior depth, and Williams would instantly be a huge upgrade.
19. Green Bay Packers (4-4-1) dcy03myfhffbki5d7il3 Devin Bush, Jr 5’11, 233 lbs Pembroke Pines, FL MLB Michigan 50 tackles, 4.5 sacks
With two first round picks, the Packers can afford to gamble on the immense upside of Devin Bush. Bush is basically a stronger Jabril Peppers, a guy who has been all over the field for the Wolverines. He should settle nicely as a middle linebacker in the Packers 3-4 front, and will offer pass rushing and chase down ability.
20. Tennessee Titans (5-4) 1053 Jeffery Simmons, Jr 6’4, 300 lbs Macon, MS DT Mississippi State 47 tackles
Derrick Brown, Jeffery Simmons, Raekwon Davis, Jerry Tillery, Christian Wilkins. The defensive tackle position is extremely deep. I like Simmons as a fit in Tennessee’s 3-4 front opposite Jurell Casey. Even though Simmons does not have any sacks, he can get after the quarterback, and he is adept at getting into the back field to stop ball carriers.
21. Cincinnati Bengals (5-4) 403 Josh Allen, Sr 6’5, 260 lbs Montclair, NJ OLB Kentucky 65 tackles, 11 sacks
The Bengals defense has been an absolute disaster this year, and they need talent at every position. Josh Allen has made up for a disappointing junior season in a big way. He has put on strength, retained his agility and has been an all around monster for Kentucky. There is little he cannot do, and he would help Cincinnati in quite a few ways.
22. Minnesota Vikings (5-3-1) 17227042013 Christian Wilkins, Sr 6’4, 300 lbs Springfield, MA CB Clemson 35 tackles, 2.5 sacks
The Vikings have one of the better rosters in the year, and could use a deep defensive tackle class to upgrade on short-term rental Sheldon Richardson. Christian Wilkins is the leader of one of the best defensive lines in college football. He does not have the highest upside, and will be a 23-year-old rookie, but he should be able to step right in across from Linval Joseph and produce from day one.
23. Houston Texans (6-3) 570 Derrick Brown, Jr 6’5, 325 lbs Sugar Hill, GA DT Auburn 37 tackles, 3.5 sacks
Another stud defensive tackle off the board. Derrick Brown is extremely agile for a man his size and could become a great bookend to JJ Watt in Houston’s 3-4 alignment. He also has the strength to handle nose tackle if need be.
24. Washington Redskins (6-3) im5xz2q9bjbg44xep08bf5czq Julian Love, Jr 5’11, 193 lbs Westchester, IL CB Notre Dame 44 tackles, 1 INT
Washington’s much maligned secondary has been playing pretty well this year, but they could use more of a difference maker opposite Josh Norman. Julian Love is not the biggest or most athletic, but he has been a pass breakup machine for one of the best defenses in the country and could be a day one NFL starter.
25. Oakland Raiders (1-8) (from Bears) g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl Jerry Tillery, Sr 6’7, 305 lbs Shreveport, LA DT Notre Dame 28 tackles, 7 sacks
Jon Gruden wants tough, ready to contribute football players. Jerry Tillery does not have the talent of an Ed Oliver or Dexter Lawrence, but has steadily improved all four years at South Bend and is now a legitimate first round prospect.
26. Carolina Panthers (6-3) f1wggq2k8ql88fe33jzhw641u Bobby Evans, Jr 6’5, 301 lbs Allen, TX OT/OG Oklahoma N/A
The Panthers always seem to need offensive line help, and Bobby Evans would be a good fit, as he can play any position on the line other than center. He has played guard and both tackle spots during his three seasons at Oklahoma, and currently mans the left side in Norman.
27. New England Patriots (7-3) Jachai Polite, Jr 6’2, 260 lbs Daytona Beach, FL DE/OLB Florida 35 tackles, 7.5 sacks
The Patriots brass has gone to the University of Florida well quite a few times in the past, and Jachai Polite would be a great scheme fit. Built a lot like Trey Flowers, Polite has been a pass rushing menace for the Gators. Along with his 7.5 sacks, he has forced four fumbles.
28. Los Angeles Chargers (7-2) 8e1jhgblydtow4m3okwzxh67k Martez Ivey, Sr 6’5, 315 lbs Apopka, FL OT/OG Florida N/A
I have not been a huge Martez Ivey fan but he has been quite consistent as Florida’s left tackle. The talent has always been there, and if he can continue to show strong effort, he could have a long career as either a guard or tackle, both need areas in Los Angeles.
29. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2-1) 970 Noah Fant, Jr 6’5, 241 lbs Omaha, NE TE Iowa 35 rec, 453 yards, 6 TD
Tight end is definitely not the biggest need in Pittsburgh, but the Steelers often pounce on falling prospects, and Noah Fant offers excellent potential here. Not a blocker whatsoever, Fant is all about the pass catching and touchdowns, and he could easily double as a straight wide receiver.
30. Green Bay Packers (4-4-1) (from Saints) dcy03myfhffbki5d7il3 Brian Burns, Jr 6’5, 235 lbs Fort Lauderdale, FL EDGE Florida State 40 tackles, 9 sacks
If Brian Burns were twenty pounds heavier, he would probably be a top ten pick. As it stands now, a team picking in the mid to late first round could land themselves a very solid developmental pick. He is already a very adept pass rusher, and if he could spend a couple of years in the weight room he could have a Dee Ford-like impact for the Packers in a few years.
31. Los Angeles Rams (8-1) 594179532017 Zach Allen, Sr 6’5, 285 lbs New Canaan, CT DE Boston College 50 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 1 INT
The Rams might be the deepest team in the NFL, but they could still use some pass rushing depth. Unfortunately, there are no EDGE rushers who could masquerade as 3-4 outside linebackers worth a pick here. Zach Allen, however, definitely is. He might not get much run initially behind a tremendous starting defensive line, but the coaching staff will figure out how to use him.
32. Kansas City Chiefs (8-1) 857 Amani Oruwariye, Sr 6’1, 201 lbs Tampa, FL CB Penn State 50 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 1 INT
Kansas City’s offense has been off the charts good, but the defense needs some work, especially in the secondary. Amani Oruwariye has been perhaps the steadiest cornerback in the country this year. He is not an athletic marvel but he has great size and very good ball skills.
