2019 NFL Mock Draft – Week 13

I guess you could call these bi-weekly mock drafts.

# Team Player H/W Hometown Position School 18-19 Stats
1. San Francisco 49ers (2-9) 17994552009 Nick Bosa, Jr 6’4, 263 lbs Fort Lauderdale, FL DE Ohio State 14 tackles, 6 sacks
The 49ers 2017 draft has proven to be disastrous. The team has cut Reuben Foster, and Solomon Thomas has provided absolutely nothing. With Nick Bosa available, they cannot afford to pass up on him. Nick is every bit 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. Arizona Cardinals (2-9) kwth8f1cfa2sch5xhjjfaof90 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. Scouts are not overly concerned about his nagging injuries. Simply put, this is a weak draft, and Oliver is one of the top talents available.
3. Oakland Raiders (2-9) g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl Dwayne Haskins, So 6’3, 220 lbs Potomac, MD QB Ohio State 313-454, 4003 yards, 41 TD, 7 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. How can you watch his performance against Michigan and put anyone else above him? With three first round picks, Oakland has a great opportunity to hit the reset button on the entire roster, especially quarterback.
4. New York Jets (3-8) v7tehkwthrwefgounvi7znf5k Clelin Ferrell, Jr 6’5, 260 lbs Richmond, VA DE Clemson 42 tackles, 10.5 sacks
The Jets have struggled to put together a consistent pass rush for years. Since Nick Bosa is out, Clelin Ferrell might be the best defensive end in college football. He is the best player on the best defensive line in the nation, and can rush the passer from any scheme.
5. New York Giants (3-8) 919 Justin Herbert, Jr 6’6, 233 lbs Eugene, OR QB Oregon 221-371, 2985 yards, 28 TD, 8 INT
The Giants decision to stick with Eli Manning has not worked out very well. With another last place finish on the horizon, now is the time to move on. Justin Herbert is not a perfect prospect, but the Oregon football team is simply much better with him behind center. His leadership would be welcome for a New York team that has lost it’s way.
6. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-8) 15988562013 Drew Lock, Sr 6’5, 220 lbs Lee’s Summit, MO QB Missouri 252-399, 3125 yards, 25 TD, 8 INT
The Blake Bortles era has finally come to an end in Jacksonville. Like former first round picks Blaine Gabbert and Byron Leftwich, Bortles simply could not develop into a consistent quarterback. The front office would love to find a veteran to fill the gap, but until that happens, I have to mock a quarterback here. I have been low on Drew Lock, but he will probably be a first round pick. Still rough around the edges, he at least has a solid throwing motion and good fundementals, giving the coaching staff something to work with.
7. Atlanta Falcons (4-7) 299 Quinnen Williams, So 6’4, 289 lbs Birmingham, AL DT Alabama 58 tackles, 7 sacks
For the first time in seemingly years, the Crimson Tide defense is not loaded with immediate draft prospects. The best of the bunch has been redshirt sophomore Quinnen Williams. Able to play any position on the line, his quickness and strength combination is second to none, as evidenced by a high sack count. He could instantly be the most talented defensive lineman in Atlanta.
8. Detroit Lions (4-7) cwuyv0w15ruuk34j9qnfuoif9 Rashan Gary, Jr 6’5, 283 lbs Plainfield, NJ DE Michigan 38 tackles, 3.5 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.
9. Buffalo Bills (4-7) 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.
10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-6) 17636702014 Greedy Williams, Jr 6’3, 184 lbs Shreveport, LA CB LSU 28 tackles, 2 INT
The Buccaneers defense has been historically bad this year. One of three finalists for the Jim Thorpe award, 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. Green Bay Packers (4-6-1) dcy03myfhffbki5d7il3 Josh Allen, Sr 6’5, 260 lbs Montclair, NJ OLB Kentucky 84 tackles, 14 sacks
Even with a healthy Aaron Rodgers, the Packers continue to struggle. The defense just never seems to have enough talent, and the Packers will most likely draft heavy on that side of the ball. Josh Allen has been an all around terror and will likely rack up quite a few defensive awards at the end of the year. Put him at rush linebacker, or end, or even middle linebacker, and let him do his thing.
12. Cleveland Browns (4-6-1) 15578552015 Jonah Williams, Jr 6’5, 301 Folsom, CA OT Alabama N/A
The Browns offense has been very good as of late, but the offensive line still needs some help. Jonah Williams does not have elite size, but is very athletic and should be a Jake Matthews-like tackle at the next level.
13. Miami Dolphins (5-6) 15041052013 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. Like a lot of other positions in Miami, the Dolphins have little at defensive tackle.
14. Tennessee Titans (5-6) 1053 Jachai Polite, Jr 6’2, 260 lbs Daytona Beach, FL DE/OLB Florida 43 tackles, 11 sacks
Both starting outside linebackers are upcoming free agents, and the Titans might move on from both. Jachai Polite is built like a rock and has been a very good all around defender this year, with four forced fumbles and a boat load of sacks. He should form a nice new duo with Harold Landry.
15. Denver Broncos (5-6) 9ebzja2zfeigaziee8y605aqp Deandre Baker, Sr 5’11, 185 lbs Miami, FL CB Georgia 37 tackles, 2 INT
The Broncos are starting to play themselves out of the quarterback pool, so they will have to upgrade the team elsewhere. 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.
16. Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) 960 AJ Brown, Jr 6’1, 230 lbs Starkville, MS WR Ole’ Miss 85 rec, 1320 yards, 6 TD
Wide receiver is not an immediate need in Philadelphia, but AJ Brown is too talented to pass up on here. He is an extremely physical wideout who is built like a linebacker and can be a nice compliment to the deep threats on the Eagles roster.
17. Cincinnati Bengals (5-6) 403 Devin White, Jr 6’1, 240 lbs Springhill, LA MLB LSU 115 tackles, 3 sacks
The Bengals defense has been abysmal this year, and the team needs to spend multiple draft picks to add talent to that side of the ball. Despite some bad missed tackles, Devin White has been as good as advertised for LSU, and would be a great fit in the middle for a Cincinnati defense that needs leadership.
18. Indianapolis Colts (6-5) 593 Byron Murphy, So 5’11, 182 lbs Scottsdale, AZ CB Washington 55 tackles, 2 INT
The Colts have been better than expected, almost all due to Andrew Luck playing at an MVP level, but still need help everywhere, especially on defense. The track record for redshirt sophomore cornerbacks in the NFL is not great, but Byron Murphy is an extreme talent who might be the best secondary player in the nation. He will go pretty high if he declares.
19. Seattle Seahawks (6-5) pfiobtreaq7j0pzvadktsc6jv Dre’Mont Jones, Jr 6’3, 286 lbs Cleveland, OH DT Ohio State 36 tackles, 7.5 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.
20. Carolina Panthers (6-5) f1wggq2k8ql88fe33jzhw641u David Edwards, Jr 6’7, 315 lbs Downers Grove, IL OT Wisconsin N/A
The Panthers always need offensive line help. David Edwards is probably a right tackle only, but he has nice size, skills and experience to be a long time starter on that side.
21. Washington Redskins (6-5) im5xz2q9bjbg44xep08bf5czq Deionte Thompson, Jr 6’2, 196 lbs Orange, TX FS Alabama 62 tackles, 2 INT
Washington’s much maligned secondary has been playing pretty well this year, but they could use more of a difference maker at safety. Deionte Thompson is the best all around safety in this class, and should be a solid starter for the next ten years.
22. Oakland Raiders (2-9) (from Cowboys) g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl Marquise Brown, Jr 5’10, 168 lbs Hollywood, FL WR Oklahoma 70 rec, 1264 yards, 10 TD
The Raiders use the pick they got for Amari Cooper to select his replacement. Marquise Brown is the most dynamic receiver in college football. What he lacks in stature, he more than makes up for with speed and big play ability. If the Raiders can come out of this draft with a new quarterback and receiver, it would give the Oakland faithful something to root for.
23. Baltimore Ravens (6-5) 318 Damien Harris, Jr 5’11, 215 lbs Richmond, KY HB Alabama 117 rushes, 719 yards, 7 TD
The Ravens have been playing musical chairs at running back since the Ray Rice days. Damien Harris is a top notch talent who has flown under the radar due to a crowded Alabama backfield. This would not be an issue for scouts and coaches, since that means he is all the more fresh. Harris is a three down back.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3-1) 970 Albert Okwuegbunam, So 6’5, 255 lbs Springfield, IL TE Missouri 43 rec, 466 yards, 6 TD
The Steelers have a few decent tight ends on the roster, but none is as complete as Albert Okwuegbunam. Missouri tight end prospects have often flopped in the NFL, but The Big O offers great all around potential as a blocker and receiver.
25. Minnesota Vikings (6-4-1) 17227042013 Jeffery Simmons, Jr 6’4, 300 lbs Macon, MS DT Mississippi State 58 tackles, 1 sack
Derrick Brown, Jeffery Simmons, Raekwon Davis, Jerry Tillery, Christian Wilkins. The defensive tackle position is extremely deep. Simmons might be the most talented of the bunch. Even though Simmons only has one sack, he can get after the quarterback, and he is adept at getting into the back field to stop ball carriers. He would be a good pick for a Vikings team that will probably go the “best player available” route.
26. Oakland Raiders (2-9) (from Bears) g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl Derrick Brown, Jr 6’5, 325 lbs Sugar Hill, GA DT Auburn 45 tackles, 3.5 sacks
Expect a ton of defensive tackles to go in the back half of the first round. Other than Ed Oliver, Derrick Brown might be the most talented of the bunch. He is still learning to play, but if the Raiders can unlock his potential they will have a good one.
27. Houston Texans (8-3) 570 Noah Fant, Jr 6’5, 241 lbs Omaha, NE TE Iowa 39 rec, 519  yards, 7 TD
The Texans have quietly won eight straight games, thanks in large part to an offense firing on all cylinders. Imagine if they could add an inline target like Noah Fant to the fold. Fant is basically a glorified receiver, but is one of the best pass catchers in this class.
28. Los Angeles Chargers (8-3) 8e1jhgblydtow4m3okwzxh67k Christian Wilkins, Sr 6’4, 300 lbs Springfield, MA DT Clemson 43 tackles, 5 sacks
The Chargers have a strong, deep roster but could use depth on the defensive line. 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 immediately provide quality snaps as a part of a solid defensive line.
29. New England Patriots (8-3) Zach Allen, Sr 6’5, 285 lbs New Canaan, CT DE Boston College 61 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 1 INT
Zach Allen is the type of versatile defensive lineman the Patriots love to employ. He has great size, and is a nice all around end, able to get after the quarterback and stop the run.
30. Los Angeles Rams (10-1) 594179532017 Brian Burns, Jr 6’5, 235 lbs Fort Lauderdale, FL DE/OLB Florida State 53 tackles, 10 sacks
One thing the very deep Rams could use is a situational pass rusher. Brian Burns size keeps him out of the top ten conversation, but he has a knack for getting after the quarterback, and would be very effective in small bursts.
31. Kansas City Chiefs (10-1) 857 Amani Oruwariye, Sr 6’1, 201 lbs Tampa, FL CB Penn State 48 tackles, 3 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.
32. Green Bay Packers (4-6-1) (from Saints) dcy03myfhffbki5d7il3 Joe Jackson, Jr 6’5, 258 lbs Fort Lauderdale, FL DE/OLB Miami 47 tackles, 9 sacks, 1 INT
Defense defense defense, like always. Joe Jackson is not quite the pure pass rusher that Brian Burns is, but he is bigger and stronger, and would be a nice fit as an all around threat.
