2019 Mock Drafts and top prospects

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here we go.  I've let the draft sink in more than long enough and now I'm on to our 2019 team needs and a mock.  You should be too.  Don't ever lose sight of the future.  

 

Needs:
OT 
OLB

TE

RB

 

We will have a nice cushion with the cap space and there a lot of OLBs in free agency next year but I still think it is a priority.  My guess is that we will be picking in the middle of each round at about 16.  I'm doing 4 rounds because 5 or more would just be insane, right?  

 

Rd 1: David Edwards OT Wisconsin

Rd 2: Montez Sweat OLB Miss St

Rd 3: Tommy Sweeney TE Boston College

Rd 4: Myles Gaskin RB Washington

 

Flame on, haters!

If you're not going to go for 7 rounds and your PFA list now, I ain't interested ;)

 

On a serious note, the 2019 Draft database from Jesse Fritsch is up and running. As far as I know, it'll be updated fairly frequently but this isn't exactly Draft Breakdown in terms of resources at this point in time - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bu7VCs3ld5efCR3fDjj_vM09KjYbY_SBDkdJHRJPOew/edit#gid=0

I think WR is a big need. 

 

I love the hometown kid in Anthony Johnson out of UB.

This is great stuff.  It will get me through long days in the cubicle.  And what will be an aggravating stretch until training camp.  Thank goodness for fantasy baseball.

2019 NFL Mock Draft: Dolphins, Broncos, Chargers, Jaguars land new quarterbacks

10. Buffalo Bills

Ahmmon Richards, WR, Miami. The Bills have a severely lack of depth and elite talent at the receiver position coming out of the 2018 draft, and their No. 1 focus from this point forward should be finding weapons for new franchise quarterback Josh Allen. Richards will have to prove he can stay healthy this year after being limited by a hamstring injury in 2017, but his nearly 20 yards per catch the previous year shows you how much of a threat he can be if 100 percent.

I firmly believe that the Bills are going DL in the first. I think that they’d LOVE Nick Bosa. An elite pass rusher is sort of the last major piece on this young defense.  It’s very possible though that they don’t get a shot at him. They may very well end up with a 3 technique to replace Kyle. The 2019 draft will be ridiculous up front.

 

I would also think that WR is a big consideration. AJ Brown is possible if they go  real early but Anthony Johnson from UB is another option. The Bills looked at all of the top guys this year and tried to trade up for Christian Kirk. They feel there is a need near the top of that depth chart. I’d expect one early or one in free agency.

Here's my super-early Top 100 for the 2019 draft class:

  1. Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
  2. Ed Oliver, DT, Houston 
  3. Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan
  4. Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
  5. A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
  6. Josh Allen, OLB, Kentucky
  7. Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
  8. Ryan Finley, QB, NC State
  9. Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
  10. Dre'Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

It's projected to be a very solid offensive line class as of right now.  Depending on how things go, I think next year will be an offensive heavy draft to help out Allen.

McShay Mock Draft

 

Thanks for posting. I'm not sure why exactly he doesn't mock a QB to the Giants even if he thinks they'd take a QB there as he says; just seems like weird logic. It doesn't sound like he knows any of this year's players that well yet, so I don't really see the harm in elevating one of the QBs to that pick if he's basically just guessing this far out anyways.

 

I'm super early in my process of scouting the QBs for next year, but at the moment, I think Drew Lock is a worthy choice there. I'm glad to see he's relatively low on Justin Herbert at the moment...I've seen a lot of people mention him as a potential #1 pick (which, given his physical tools, is possible if he improves a lot), but I viewed him as more of a late 1st, early 2nd caliber QB based on last year's play; I prefer Lock and Shea Patterson over him in the very least and I wouldn't be surprised if Stidham and Thorson end up with higher grades for the preseason period too.

Can I have Julian Love right now?  Because I'll take Julian Love right now.

And for our "we need a #1 wr" fans on the boards:

 

 

 

 

Will his stock suffer from losing Patterson? (I know nothing about CFB)

Ole Miss with Patterson last year: 3-5

Ole Miss with Jordan Ta'amu: 3-1 (wins over Kentucky and Miss State)

 

Ta'amu led the SEC in adjusted completion percentage. It's a really small sample size; he'll be a senior this year and those 4 starts were the first action he had ever gotten in college, but the results were pretty promising, and Brown is a pretty special talent.

As long as the Bills are picking above #23, I'm agnostic who they pick

That's a good point.  If so he could fall to us if we pick in the bottom half. 😎

Buffalo Bills

Jonah Williams

OT

Alabama

Analysis: The Bills traded Cordy Glenn and drafted their quarterback of the future. Like the Jets, they better protect him.

I'd like Raequon Davis from Alabama.  

As you might have guessed, I have watched every minute of every game this kid has played.

 

There are SO many variables and things that can go wrong but I am telling you that this kid has pro bowl if not Hall of Fame talent, and he seems to get better in every game.  He has a similar build to Mario Williams and is flat out ferocious.

 

Again, injuries happen every day. He seems like a great kid but things happen when you put millions of dollars into the pocket of a kid.

 

That said, check him out this year if you get the chance. He has already started to shine; he was easily the best player in the A Game. He would have had 5 or 6 sacks.
