2019 NFL Mock Draft: 6.0, Before the NFL Combine

By

11. Cincinnati – Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama. Increasingly, scouts are split on Williams, who likely will start out at guard. Depending on whom you talk to, he’s no longer the best tackle prospect in the draft.

12. Green Bay – Rashan Gary, Edge, Michigan. Think we’ll hear him rising up draft boards the next few months. Had a weird year where he didn’t play much, and took arrows from the media, but the talent definitely warrants him going in the 1st half of the 1st round.

13. Miami – Ed Oliver, DT, Houston. There is a big need at QB, but unless they move up, it is increasingly looking like they won’t find one here. The Dolphins had the 24th ranked DVOA run defense, and new head coach Brian Flores will certainly need to start rebuilding that defense.

14. Atlanta – Dexter Lawrence, DL, Clemson. One of the biggest disappointments in 2018, Atlanta couldn’t stop anyone, and the defense will be the top priority this offseason. Head coach Dan Quinn is now in charge of the defense, so the pressure is on.

15. Washington – Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, Oklahoma, WR. The QB situation is dicey, the offensive line needs to get healthy, but Brown is the best play-making skill position player in this draft. A tight end wouldn’t be a bad idea, and I still like the idea of Noah Fant here.

16. Carolina – Devin White, LB, LSU. With Thomas Davis leaving the Panthers, and Luke Kuechly one concussion away from retirement, it’s time to find a talented replacement in the middle of the defense. There is a big need at TE with Greg Olsen retiring, but several talented ones will be available in the 2nd round.

17. Cleveland – Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson. Susceptible against the run last year, the Browns need to bolster the interior in free agency or the draft. Fortunately for them, it’s a draft loaded at the position.

18. Minnesota – Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State. Pro Football Focus rated the Vikings offensive line 29th in the NFL. So yeah, keep blaming Kirk Cousins. Offensive line has to be the top priority in the draft.

19. Tennessee – T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa. The Titans lost TE Delanie Walker to a broken ankle in the opener and the offense really struggled. He’s 35 in August. Hockenson is a plug-and-play guy who helps Marcus Mariota immediately. No, I don’t think you panic yet about Mariota’s injuries.

20. Pittsburgh – Devin Bush, LB, Michigan. The Steelers have been searching for the Ryan Shazier replacement, and Bush could be a candidate, though he’s a bit smaller.
