The 2019 NFL Draft brings talent from both side of the ball. From start to finish, the first-round talent will be instant stars.
Quarterbacks begin to make their way up the draft board, as college football turns towards a playoff chase and the NFL begins to take shape. Teams are beginning to collapse, while some are keeping the whole league guessing from week to week. As the 2018 season begins to mold itself together, next April’s draft starts to become clearer.
1. Arizona Cardinals: Jonah Williams, OT Alabama
Josh Rosen was solid in his first career start. That being said the Cardinals offense was still not good. Some of that has been blamed on the new coaching staff and play calling but the Cardinals have simply not been a good team. David Johnson has only averaged 3.3 yards per attempt this season. Jonah Williams would be an immediate player on the offensive line as well as a long-term fixture protecting Rosen’s blindside. Williams is athletic and has very quick feet making him a very good pass blocker. He is powerful in the run game and should help open up holes for David Johnson.
2. Buffalo Bills: Ed Oliver, DT Houston
The Bills are lucky in this mock draft as arguably the best player in the draft falls to them at number two. The Bills are not a very good team and simply need to add talented players. Ed Oliver is an athletic freak for his size. He gets off the ball and into the opponent’s backfield very quickly sometimes before the opposing offensive lineman can make contact. He is the type of player that can completely transform a defense and a talent that could be hard to pass up at any point in the draft.
