Arizona gets a right tackle to compliment left tackle D.J. Humphries. They also need a left guard to replace Mike Iupati. The 6-4 338 lb Ford had 7 starts at left guard before moving to right tackle in 2018. I've seen Ford mocked as early as the first or second round, but he's versatile enough to play right tackle, left guard, or right guard, plus he's a bargain at this point in the third round.
Here is a brand new video of Kyler Murray versus Kansas. Cody Ford blocked for Kyler Murray at Oklahoma so take a look at this video and tell me how you think Ford performed at right tackle versus Kansas in the comments section below.
The 5-11 195 lb Nasir Adderley can play strong safety, free safety, or nickel cornerback with his versatility. His man coverage and press coverage is awful, but his center fielder ability in zone coverage is on an Ed Reed level. This is the biggest reason Adderley is getting hyped up by the mainstream media.
Oren Shiri did a mock draft slideshow for the 2019 NFL Draft. Oren mocked Adderley to Oakland at 27.
"The Raiders are in need of a safety that brings youth to the team not a dangling old veteran. Adderley has the tools as shown in the Senior Bowl to become one of the most elite safeties in the NFL. If there's any indication where Adderley is going to, the silver and black was crowned as one of the three captains by the Raiders coaching staff in the Senior Bowl. Plus he left with three Raiders stickers on his helmet if that's an indicator. Anyways he belongs on their secondary he can play safety, nickel, and maybe even some cornerback on the team."
Those were Oren's words on Nasir Adderley. Check out this Voch Lombardi film session on Nasir Adderley. One thing I noticed in Voch Lombardi's film session is that he blitzes like Polamalu and covers like Ed Reed in zone coverage. He will line up as a third outside linebacker or an edge rusher when he blitzes as an eighth man in the box. I may move Adderley up in my next mock draft because he has the intiative and back bone to confront an offensive lineman and push him by getting in his face. He plays on special teams too as a kick returner and a punt returner as well.
San Francisco has Pierre Garcon and Dante Pettis as their top two receiving targets. I also did not do a Lil Jordan Humphrey SWOT report.
The biggest strength with Lil Jordan Humphrey is the size and speed. He's big at 6-4 222 lbs. The biggest weakness is he drops easy passes on tape. San Francisco is a great opportunity for Lil John Humphrey because he is raw, but the upside to be a number one receiver on the 49ers in two years by 2021 is there. He'd probably be a slot receiver this year, but he could become a complimentary target on the outside next to Pettis by 2020 and eventually take over that number one wide receiver role by 2021 if you develop him. Lil John Humphrey could be a Pro Bowler down the road, but I don't expect him to make an immediate impact right away since he drops a lot of short passes on tape.
Will Grier looked awful in Mobile. I had a top 10 grade on him heading into the 2019 Senior Bowl, and now I have a third round grade on him once again, because he showed he was nothing more then a system quarterback. Unlike guys like Jared Goff and Patrick Mahomes who showed why they could play in any type of offense, Grier is a pure system quarterback.
The 6-4 218 lb Will Grier had 3,864 passing yards, 37 passing touchdowns, 8 interceptions, and a 67 completion percentage in 2018. Grier did not play in West Virginia's Bowl Game.
Caddy To The Lamma did a good film session on Will Grier. Go follow him for awesome film content. Here is a film cut of Will Grier versus Baylor.
Tampa Bay drafts a linebacker with the versatility to play 4-3 right outside linebgacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, and 3-4 middle linebacker. Joseph's versatility makes him an awesome replacement for Tampa Bay. I believe they will keep the 4-3 defense in tact despite their being rumors about them moving to a 3-4 because Bowles has coached teams that run a 3-4 defense.
The 6-1 227 lb Vosean Joseph is a great plug-in-play linebacker. He needs to get stronger and improve his ability in coverage. He displays first round athleticism and game speed on tape, but his coverage needs to improve and he also needs to add more muscle.
Denver gets a 3-4 middle linebacker. T.J. Edwards is the best player on the board and a great fit for the Broncos at this point.
The 6-1 242 lb T.J. Edwards had 73 solo tackles, 40 assisted tackles, 113 total tackles, 11.5 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, 3 quarterback hurries, 3 interceptions, and 2 deflections from pass breakups 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.
Here is tape of T.J. Edwards versus Penn State. I believe he has third round talent when watching his tape, at the same time his coverage is very suspect.
The 6-7 249 lb Tyree Jackson has 10-inch hands. He has the floor of Tavaris Jackson, but the ceiling of someone like Daunte Culpepper. In fact, I'd argue that he has a better ceiling then Will Grier even though I didn't do a SWOT report on Tyree Jackson. Jackson was that good in Mobile while Grier was that bad, so a part of me believes Jackson has closed that gap between him and Grier.
I am tempted to move Tyree Jackson ahead of Will Grier. Getting Tyree Jackson in the fourth or fifth round is way better value then getting Will Grier in the first or second round. Here is tape of Tyree Jackson versus Ohio that I uploaded to Youtube a while ago.
Neither Danny Shelton or Malcolm Brown got a sack in 2018. The 6-4 300 lb Gerald Willis III is raw. His upside is through the roof though since he plays like Warren Sapp in a 4-3 defense and Vince Wilfork in a 3-4 scheme. He's so good that he commanded double teams versus LSU despite a slow start.
Gerald Willis III had 34 solo tackles, 25 assisted tackles, 59 total tackles, 18 tackles for a loss, 5 quarterback hurries, 4 sacks, and 2 deflections from pass breakups.
Gerald Willis III did well versus LSU despite the slow start. I'm honestly considering swapping him with Jeffery Simmons out of Mississippi State in my pre-combine mock draft next week.
Green Bay gets a starting defensive end to replace Muhammed Wilkerson. Isaiah Buggs can play 4-3 defensive tackle, 3-4 right end, or 3-4 left end with his versatility. The 6-2 295 lb Buggs had 24 solo tackles, 27 assisted tackles, 51 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks, and 6 quarterback hurries in 2018. Here is tape of Isaiah Buggs versus Ole Miss.
Washington gets a pass rusher for depth with this pick. The 6-3 266 lb Anfernee Jennings can play 3-4 right outside linebacker or 3-4 left outside linebacker on either side. Jennings had 26 solo tackles, 24 assisted tackles, 50 total tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, 11 deflections from pass breakups, 6 quarterback hurries, and 5.5 sacks in 2018.
Anfernee Jennings would compete wity Ryan Anderson for a starting spot off the edge at 3-4 left outside linebacker next to Ryan Kerrigan. Here is tape of Jennings versus Ole Miss.
Carolina gets a starting defensive end to compliment 4-3 right end Mario Addison. The 6-6 280 lb defensive end had 14 tackles for a loss and 8 sacks in 2018. Bryant projects best as a 4-3 left end and may be an upgrade over everyone on Carolina's defensive line considering that Julius Peppers retired.
Carolina gets Austin Bryant here. Bryant is a project pass rusher at 4-3 left end. The fact that he challenged Boston College right guard Chris Lidstrom, who I am really high on does say a lot though.
Miami has Andre Branch and Charles Harris their 2017 first round pick starting at defensive end now that Robert Quinn is expected to be cut and due to Cameron Wake being a Free Agent. Joe Jackson did well on tape versus Boston College left tackle Aaron Montiero. Jackson provides Miami depth off the edge, plus he's talented enough to potentially supplant Branch of the 4-3 right end job on Miami.
The 6-5 265 lb Joe Jackson had 19 solo tackles, 28 assisted tackles, 47 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for a loss, 9 sacks, and 9 quarterback hurries in 2018. Joe Jackson is good enough to come into Miami and potentially win one of the starting defensive end spots with his versatility to play both 4-3 right end as well as 4-3 left end.
Kyler Murray avoided a turnover versus Alabama. That's impressive considering how lackluster his brilliant offensive line was during the 2019 College Football Playoff.
Atlanta grabs the 6-6 315 lb Alex Bars to replace their starting right guard. Bars played right guard next to Quenton Nelson in 2017. Once Nelson went to the NFL, Bars shifted over to left guard. Bars suffered a season ending injury at left guard. Atlanta would be drafting him as a right guard where he played better next to Nelson.
Here is game film of Bars at right guard versus North Carolina State from 2017. I'm projecting Bars as a right guard in this mock. Bars would be a first round prospect if he didn't get injured in 2018.
After going with defensive players in the first two rounds, Cleveland gets a playmaker at 80. They got three effective receivers with Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, and Antonio Callaway. The Cleveland Browns do not have a big bodied target that can bail Baker Mayfield out at will.
The 6-3 225 lb J.J. Arcega-Whiteside had 63 receptions, 1,059 receiving yards, and 14 receiving touchdowns in 2018. He caught a touchdown in the red zone by fighting off great man coverage by Notre Dame cornerback Julian Love. He only had 5 receptions, 30 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown versus Love, but his tape versus Notre Dame is better then his stats indicate.
Michael Deiter has lined up at left tackle, left guard, and center. Minnesota drafts their new left guard here. The 6-5 304 lb Michael Deiter moved to left guard and became a team captain on Wisconsin in 2018.
Michael Deiter is the final piece to rebuilding Minnesota's offensive line. With Riley Reiff at left tackle, Michael Deiter at left guard, Pat Elflein at center, Mike Remmers at right guard, and Jawaan Taylor who I mocked to Minnesota at 50 at right tackle. With this offensive line, Kirk Cousins finally has a competent unit for pass protection while Dalvin Cook has a killer run blocking unit up front. A healthy Dalvin Cook could approach nearly 2,000 rushing yards with this offensive line.
Wisconsin has a lot of good offensive linemen. Here is tape of those offensive linemen in the 2018 New Era Pinstripe Bowl against the Miami Hurricanes who have a good defensive line.
Tennessee gets a slot receiver to go next to Corey Davis and Taywon Taylor. Marquise Brown had 75 receptions, 1,310 receiving yards, and 10 receiving touchdowns. He had an average game versus a Texas defense with NFL talent. Even though he can run a sub 4.3 40-time, I still feel like he is a third round talent on tape due to the fact that he has a slot receiver body.
Pittsburgh gets a left guard here to replace Ramon Foster. I may give Pittsburgh a wide receiver in next weeks mock draft given how strong this wide receiver class is. I mocked Williams to Pittsburgh prior to the Antonio Brown news of him wanting out, so I may change this pick to a wide receiver next week.
The 6-2 310 lb Darryl Williams is versatile enough to play left guard or right guard on either side of the offensive line. He did a great job pass blocking for quarterback Nick Fitzgerald even though Fitzgerald sucked at quarterback.
Here is some tape of Darryl Williams versus Iowa. Mississippi State's guard looks like someone who could start on day 1 in the NFL and be an adequate replacement to Ramon Foster at left guard.
Seattle gets the best offensive lineman on the board here at 83. Another guard to compliment Ethan Pocic is needed, plus Pocic can play left guard, center, or right guard with his versatility. McGovern has the same skill set and compliments Pocic well.
The 6-5 323 lb Connor McGovern gives Seattle another blocker to go with their offensive line. He did a good job pass blocking for Trace McSorley and run blocking for Saquon Barkley. I did a film session of connor McGovern and Penn State's offensive line versus Pittsburgh.
Baltimore gets their starting running back here. Devin Singletary had 261 carries, 1,348 rushing yards, and 22 rushing touchdowns in 2018. Devin Singletary also had 32 rushing touchdowns in 2017.
It's hard to look past the 54 rushing touchdowns that Singletary had in the last two seasons at Florida Atlantic. At the same time the 5-9 200 lb struggled versus Oklahoma. He did well versus Central Florida with 25 carries, 131 rushing yards, and 3 rushing touchdowns in this film cut versus Central Florida.
Houston gets a good defensive back here. Kendall Sheffield lined up at field cornerback, strong safety, free safety, and boundary cornerback on tape versus Washington. Houston needs a plug-in-play cornerback with the versatility to line up everywhere. The 6-0 193 lb Kendall Sheffield had 8 deflections from pass breakups in 2018.
Here is some tape of Kendall Sheffield versus Washington. He gave Jake Browning fits in the 2019 Rose Bowl.
Detroit gets a wide receiver to replace Golden Tate. The 6-3 214 lb Kelvin Harmon is the top receiver on the board for Detroit in the third round. Harmon had 81 receptions, 1,186 receiving yards, and 7 receiving touchdowns in 2018.
Here is tape of Kelvin Harmon versus Boston College. I got a third round grade on Harmon, but I've seen other mocks project Hamron higher.
Indianapolis needs a middle linebacker because Darius Leonard played 4-3 right outside linebacker. Tre Lamar out of Clemson is a 6-4 255 lb middle linebacker who has the versatilityt o play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, and 3-4 middle linebacker.
Tre Lamar did well versus Boston College. Here is a film session of Clemson's middle linebacker.
Dallas gets a defensive tackle here. The 6-3 319 lb Dontavius Russell had a good week during the 2019 Senior Bowl. He didn't have the best regular season, but he outperformed Greg Gaines in Mobile, and looks like a future starter.
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.
Kansas City gets another cornerback here. The 6-2 207 lb Isaiah Johnson did well in 2018 with 50 solo tackles, 16 assisted tackles, 66 total tackles, 7 deflections from pass breakups, and 2 interceptions. Isaiah Johnson also did well in the 2019 Senior Bowl and could be a great nickel corner for Kansas City.
Isaiah Johnson did well versus Arizona. Here is his tape versus Arizona from 2018.
The 6-4 324 lb Lester Cotton can play left guard or right guard with his versatility. Jacksonville is losing right guard A.J. Cann to Free Agency so drafting Cotton makes sense here. Jacksonville owns the rights to this pick or the compensation pick that the Rams got from letting Trumaine Johnson sign with the New York Jets. Either way, I won't know the specifics of the pick until the 2019 NFL Combine.
Lester Cotton began his career at right guard. He moved over to left guard in 2018 and that's where he is lining up in this film session versus Alabama State.
Cleveland grabs competition for Greg Robinson, Desmond Harrison, and Austin Corbett here. Mitch Hyatt may end up being an upgrade over all three at left tackle in the event that Cleveland drafts Hyatt at 95.
Mitch Hyatt did better in 2018 versus South Carolina. Here is a film session of Hyatt versus South Carolina.
Washington got this compensation pick at 96 thanks to Kirk Cousins signing with the Minnesota Vikings along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
Washington actually takes a left tackle that is actually better then Gerod Christian. Christian can move inside to left guard too thanks to this pick.
New England got this compensation pick at 97 thanks to Nate Solder signing with the New York Giants along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
Greg Gaines could replace one of the current Washington defensive tackles on New England's roster. Here is tape of Greg Gaines versus the Utah Utes from the 2018 PAC 12 Championship Game.
Los Angeles got this compensation pick at 98 thanks to Trumaine Johnson signing with the New York Jets along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
The 6-0 234 lb Sutton Smith is another edge rusher at 3-4 outside linebacker who could compliment Jachai Polite, the Los Angeles Rams first round pick. Los Angeles grabs the Northern Illinois pass rusher in the clip below to load up off the edge. Smith just embarasses Utah left tackle Jackson Barton in this clip.
Carolina got this compensation pick at 99 thanks to Andrew Norwell signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
Carolina gets David Montgomery for depth at running back. Every running back outside of Christian McCaffrey is a Free Agent. Montgomery would compliment McCaffrey well in Carolina. Here is a film cut of David Montgomery versus Oklahoma.
Los Angeles got this compensation pick at 100 thanks to Sammy Watkins signing with the Kansas City Chiefs along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
The 6-6 321 lb Kaleb McGary would be an upgrade over Rob Havenstein at right tackle. He wouldn't have to start right away and could use a year or two to correct his foot speed. The thing is, McGary is talented enough to beat out Havenstein for the right tackle job though.
New England got this compensation pick at 101 thanks to Malcolm Butler signing with the Tennessee Titans along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
New England grabs another wide receiver with this pick. Hakeem Butler provides amazing value at this point.
Baltimore got this compensation pick at 102 thanks to Ryan Jensen signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with the New York Giants giving up a 2019 third round pick for Sam Beal in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft.
Baltimore gets another wide receiver here. D.K. Metcalf has the speed of a first round pick, but I don't think he can run all thirty routes on the route tree. It's gonna take more then a Bod Man Fragrance spray selfie by Metcalf in the weight room to convince me he's a first rounder. That being said, I am leaning towards moving him ahead of A.J. Brown in my next mock draft.
