Arizona gets a cornerback to compliment Patrick Peterson at 33 so they can move Robert Alford who they just signed a three year deal to a nickel cornerback role. Arizona now has two pass rushers thanks to taking Nick Bosa in the first round and now they have three great cornerbacks thanks to taking Amani Oruwariye at the top of the second round.
The 6-1 204 lb Amani Oruwariye had 12 deflections from pass breakups. Amani Oruwariye really caught my eye in Penn State's game against Pittsburgh.
Indianapolis takes the best player available at 34. The 6-6 272 lb Anthony Nelson had 23 solo tackles, 22 assisted tackles, 45 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks, and 6 quarterback hurries in 2018. Anthony Nelson got by Max Scharping on tape and had a strong week in Mobile.
Here is film session of Anthony Nelson in the 2019 Outback Bowl. In this game he is facing an SEC team in Mississippi State.
I intially did not have Deebo Samuel as high on my rankings, but he dominated during the 2019 Senior bowl. The 5-11 216 lb Deebo Samuel can come in right away to play slot receiver for the Oakland Raiders.
Oakland finally gets a playmaker for Derek Carr after drafting three defensive players to shore up the front 7 in the first round. Deebo Samuel had 62 receptions, 882 receiving yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns in 2018.
Deebo Samuel put on a clinic against Clemson. Here is the film cut to prove it.
The 5-11 189 lb Rock ya-Sin did well versus Buffalo wide receiver Anthony Johnson on tape which is why I moved him ahead of Anthony Johnson in this latest mock. Rock Ya-Sin had 36 solo tackles, 11 assisted tackles, 47 total tackles, 12 deflections from pass breakups, and 2 interceptions in 2018.
Rock Ya-Sin did well versus Buffalo wide receiver Anthony Johnson, who I love on tape. Rock Ya-Sin is now a top 40 player in this class after watching him dominate versus Buffalo..
Jacksonville gets a wide receiver to make things easier for their quarterback assuming they trade for Nick Foles. One player who can run all 30 different routes that a wide receiver needs to run is the 6-2 207 lb Anthony Litman Johnson out of Buffalo. I had a first round grade on Anthony Johnson and still believe he is a steal at this point in the second round. Anthony Johnson fits the criteria as Jadeveon Clowney's cousin and he ran a 4.43 40-time when he enrolled at Buffalo.
Anthony Johnson had 76 receptions, 1,356 receiving yards, and 14 receiving touchdowns in 2017. Anthony Johnson had 57 receptions, 1,011 receiving yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns in 2018. He wasn't targeted as much, but he still had a huge impact as far as attitude and blocking goes. Tyree Jackson was lost without him, so that speaks volumes about Johnson.
Anthony Johnson is a gamer. He's high character off the field and a total savage on game day.
Tampa Bay drafts a left tackle for Jameis Winston. The 6-5 321 lb Yodny Cajuste had two strong games versus the Texas Longhorns in 2017 and 2018 where he got the best of Malik Jefferson in 2017 and the best of Charles Omenihu who I mocked to New England in the late first round. Cajuste is good in pass protection and replaces an overrated Donovan Smith who sucks.
Buffalo gets a player in the second round with Pro Bowl upside. If Noah Fant is our only tight end with a Pro Bowl grade can you really blame us for giving quarterback Josh Allen a Pro Bowl target to throw to rather than protection up front?
Buffalo goes for value at 40. Noah Fant reminds me of a young Greg Olsen.
Lil John on Draft Twitter who edits On The Clock is a huge Panthers fan. He's the fourth member of the Draft Twitter Film team that I'm networking with Daily for the 2019 NFL Draft. He did a film session on Noah Fant and I'm posting Fant's tape here. Fant dominated Denzel Ward in this film session.
I love going with offensive players in the second round of my mock drafts after going quarterback in the first round.
I love going with offensive players in the second round of my mock drafts after going quarterback in the first round. The 6-4 314 lb Elgton Jenkins has the versatility to play left tackle, left guard, center, right guard, or right tackle. He's a two-year starter at center, and now my top center in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Matt Paradis has an expiring contract. If Elgton Jenkins dominates this week in Mobile, he may even sneak into the late first round and go to a team like the Kansas City Chiefs or the Los Angeles Rams. Jenkins can maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds as a constant blocker on tape.
The 6-3 303 lb Chris Lindstrom has experience at right guard and right tackle. He's someone who can complete all of the woes on Cincinnati's offensive line. A unit with Cordy Glenn at left tackle, Clint Boling at left guard, Billy Price at center, Chris Lindstrom at right guard, and Dalton Risner at right tackle bodes well for Andy Dalton or whoever else plays quarterback for Cincinnati moving forward. Lindstrom did well versus Clemson's defensive tackles which is one reason I am high on him.
Detroit gets an outside linebacker that could also be used as a 3-4 left outside linebacker off the edge. The 6-3 255 lb Chase Winovich has similar hair to Clay Matthews. Chase Winovich had 31 total tackles, 38 assisted tackles, 69 total tackles, 17 tackles for a loss, 7 quarterback hurries, and 5 sacks in 2018.
Chase Winovich did well on tape versus Penn State. Here is his film session from his game against Penn State.
Green Bay gets a replacement to HaHa Clinton-Dix here. Jaquon Johnson is the best safety on the board as well as the best player on the board. The 5-10 186 lb strong safety had 44 solo tackles, 48 assisted tackles, and 92 total tackles in 2018.
Jaquon Johnson is showing the versatility to play strong safety or free safety in this film session versus Boston College. He's covering Boston College tight end Tommy Sweeney in this film session.
Atlanta will need a replacement to Andy Levitre at left guard. The 6-3 310 lb Ben Powers showed the versatility to play either left guard or right guard in Mobile. Powers displayed the pass blocking to protect Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray along with the run blocking to open up holes for Rodney Anderson. He also has great zone blocking.
Ben Powers did well versus West Virginia. He's my favorite left guard in the 2019 NFL Draft after seeing all the guards in Mobile.
Washington has three assets on the offensive line with left tackle Trent Williams, right tackle Morgan Moses, and right guard Brandon Scherff. Both left guard and center need to be upgraded. There are some rumors that Washington will go after Matt Paradis the starting center on Denver. If that is the case, Pierschbacher would move to left guard. Otherwise, Pierschbacher takes over at center. The point is Washington could move him to either position. I uploaded his tape versus Louisville and it was good.
The 6-1 195 lb Trayvon Mullen only had 3 deflections from pass breakups and 1 interception in 2018. However his man coverage, zone coverage, and press coverage is exceptional. Carolina grabs the best player on the board to pair with last years rookie Donte Jackson.
Here is tape of Trayvon Mullen versus Boston College. He has first round talent despite what his stats say.
Miami has the money to get a quarterback in Free Agency, however if someone like Heisman Trophy Winner Kyler Murray slipped to 48, I doubt Miami would pass on him. The 5-10 195 lb Kyler Murray won the Heisman and declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. Kyler Murray had 4,391 passing yards, 1,001 rushing yards, 5,392 total yards, 43 passing touchdowns, 12 rushing touchdowns, 55 total touchdowns, 7 interceptions, and a 69 completion percentage.
Kyler Murray avoided a turnover versus Alabama. That's impressive considering how lackluster his brilliant offensive line was during the 2019 College Football Playoff.
Even with Love's lousy game versus Clemson in the College Football Playoff, he's still a top 50 guy. The 5-11 190 lb cornerback had 16 deflections from pass breakups in 2018 would compliment Denzel Ward in Cleveland.
Julian Love dominated versus Donovan Peoples-Jones in Notre Dame's opener versus Michigan. Love played so well that he flustered Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson causing Patterson to return to school. Here is the tape showing how Love began Notre Dame's 2018 season with a bang.
Jawaan Taylor entered Florida at 6-5 350 lbs. He's down to 328 lbs. I like Taylor as a second round talent on tape, but I don't think he's a first round talent. Minnesota brings in Jawaan Taylor as an immediaate starter at right tackle.
Here is some tape of Jawaan Taylor versus Kentucky. You can look at Florida's entire offensive line in this film cut by the way.
Tennessee needs multiple upgrades at the guard position. Beau Benzschawel is a 6-6 307 lb right guard out of Wisconsin. He bolsters the Tennessee Titans offensive line. Here is a film cut of Beau Benzschawel versus Ohio State in 2017. This was his best game of tape.
Pittsburgh gets a good cornerback here. Joe Haden is a fantastic field cornerback. Artie Burns sucked in 2018 and I had a third round grade on Pittsburgh's 2016 first round pick. Cameron Sutton is a good nickel cornerback, but that's his ceiling. Mike Hilton was a quarter cornerback. Getting JoeJuan Williams allows Burns and Sutton to compete for the nickel cornerback job with the loser moving to a dime cornerback role.
The 6-3 208 lb JoeJuan Williams had 48 solo tackles, 13 assisted tackles, 61 total tackles, 13 deflections from pass breakups, 4 interceptions, and 2 tackles for a loss in 2018. JoeJuan Williams looked like a second round cornerback when I watched his tape.
Here is some tape of JoeJuan Williams versus Ole Miss. A.J. Brown had a huge game versus Vanderbilt, but most of his big plays came away from JoeJuan Williams who also had the game-winning deflection for Vanderbilt by breaking up a pass intended for DaMarkus Lodge.
Philadelphia drafts the 6-2 239 lb Mack Wilson. Wilson is mainly a middle linebacker/3-4 middle linebacker. Unlike Devin White, Devin Bush, and Khalil Hodge who are pure inside linebackers, Wilson is versatile enough to play 4-3 right outside linebacker or 4-3 left outside linebacker. Mack Wilson is the most versatile middle linebacker in the 2019 NFL Draft despite only having 36 solo tackles, 35 assisted tackles, 71 total tackles, 7 quarterback hurries, 5 tackles for a loss, 5 deflections from pass breakups, 2 interceptions, and 1 sack.
Mack Wilson is also the best player on the board. Philadelphia needs a middle linebacker.
Mack Wilson can drop back into coverage. Knows how to stop the run. Can even blitz off the edge as he hurdled Paul Adams on one play. He lacks the strength to win blocks though when watching his tape versus Missouri. Mack Wilson may be best off as a left outside linebacker for that reason, but I will mock him as a middle linebacker for now.
Houston gets a good right guard here. Houston's offensive line looks like this after two rounds of drafting offensive lineman. Andre Dillard at left tackle, Zach Fulton at left guard, Nick Martin at center, Dru Samia at right guard, and David Edwards at right tackle. Houston would also have Julie'n Davenport and Martinas Rankin for depth.
The 6-5 304 lb Dru Samia dominated at right guard during the 2019 Senior Bowl practices. Samia could push for a starting job.
Here is some tape of Dru Samia versus Alabama. Samia did well at guard next to Ben Powers at Oklahoma in Mobile despite struggling versus Alabama.
New England will need a cornerback next to Stephon Gilmore in 2018 with Jason McCourty having an expiring contract. The 5-11 195 lb Kris Boyd had 49 solo tackles, 18 assisted tackles, 67 total tackles, and 16 deflections from pass breakups in 2018. Kris Boyd has the man coverage, zone coverage, and press coverage you want as well as tremendous speed.
Kris Boyd did well in the Sugar Bowl against Georgia. I mocked Boyd to New England last week at 31. New England somehow still gets Boyd at 56 thanks to Boyd struggling during the 2019 Senior Bowl.
The 6-1 225 lb A.J. Brown is talented with 75 receptions, 1,252 receiving yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns in 2017. All of his good tape came against teams with mediocre corners. N'Keal Harry, Dillon Mitchell, and Anthony Johnson did well versus NFL corners. Johnson can run 30 different routes and Harry dropped fewer passes then any receiver I watched so far. A.J. Brown struggled versus Trevon Diggs and Greedy Williams in 2018.
A.J. Brown may not even be the best receiver on his own team. D.K. Metcalf is projected to run a better 40-time. Brown had better production then Metcalf with 85 receptions, 1,320 receiving yards, and 6 receiving touchdowns in 2018.
Here is tape of A.J. Brown versus Alabama. You can tell he doesn't separate himself like Harry, Mitchell, Samuel, or Johnson does just by watching the tape.
Dallas gets a starting safety here. I like the 6-0 206 lb Juan Thornhill when watching his tape.
Juan Thornhill had 62 solo tackles, 36 assisted tackles, 98 total tackles, 7 deflections from pass breakups, and 6 interceptions in 2018. Thornhill is one of the best safeties in this draft. Here is Thornhill's tape versus Miami FL.
Indianapolis needs a defensive tackle. The 6-7 305 lb Jerry Tillery had 19 solo tackles, 11 assisted tackles, 30 total tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, 8 sacks, and 5 quarterback hurries in 2018.
Jerry Tillery is more versatile then I realized. Initially, I assumed he was mainly a 4-3 defensive tackle.
He can line up at 4-3 right end, 4-3 defensive tackle, 4-3 left end, 3-4 right end, 3-4 nose tackle, and 3-4 left end. Tillery is versatile enough to play anywhere on the defensive line. That is something Indianapolis will love about Tillery. You can see how versatile Tillery is by watching this film session of him versus Stanford.
Kansas City needs a replacement to Derrick Johnson. T'Von Coney is the best player on the board and a great fit for the Chiefs at this point.
The 6-0 244 lb T'Von Coney had 63 solo tackles, 60 assisted tackles, 123 total tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss, 6 quarterback hurries, 4 sacks, 4 deflections from pass breakups, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 intercepiton at 3-4 middle linebacker. He fits what the Chiefs want to do and played in a 3-4 defense just like the one Kansas City operates. T'Von Coney also did better in coverage then T.J. Edwards in Mobile which is the biggest reason I moved Coney up.
T'Von Coney is versatile enough to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, or 3-4 middle linebacker. He's also excellent in coverage on tape despite what his stats say. He knows how to stop the run as well.
I believe he has second round talent when watching his tape. Coney balled out versus Michigan.
Kansas City needs a new running back to replace Kareem Hunt. Bennie Snell Jr. had 289 carries, 1,449 rushing yards, and 17 rushing touchdowns in 2018. The 5-11 223 lb running back has three consecutive seasons of 1,000 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. He could improve as a blocker and a pass catcher, but he's my favorite running back in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Bennie Snell Jr. faced Mississippi State. Find out how he did on tape versus a team with NFL talent on defense.
The 6-3 210 lb David Sills V had 65 receptions, 986 receiving yards, and 15 receiving touchdowns in 2018. New England has Julian Edelman for one more year. Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, and Cordarrelle Patterson are Free Agents. We don't know if Josh Gordon will be back yet for next season. That's why it makes sense for New England to take David Sills V here.
Here is a film session of David Sills V giving the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium. Take a look and see why David Sills V is as good as advertised.
