Tony Mario's 2019 NFL Mock Draft: Debut
Round 1 Picks 17-32
Tony Mario Last Updated: June 8, 2018.
San Francisco 49ers: Collin Johnson, WR, Texas
- The 49ers have nine wide receivers on their depth chart. The problem is all of them are slot receivers. Collin Johnson has been making a lot of progress at Texas in the offseason and may be due for a breakout season.
Seattle Seahawks: Jonah Williams, LT, Alabama
- Russell Wilson gets an an upgrade at left tackle over Duane Brown or they could move him to right tackle too. Alabama left tackle Jonah Williams has experience at both offensive tackle spots during his time at Alabama. He should be a 2019 first round pick barring injury in 2018.
Carolina Panthers: Michael Deiter, C, Wisconsin
- Michael Deiter can play all five spots on the offensive line at left tackle, left guard, center, right guard, or right tackle. Deiter is an ideal candidate to replace Ryan Kalil down the road.
Minnesota Vikings: Dex Lawrence, DT, Clemson
- The Vikings grab a defensive tackle here. Dex Lawrence is a top 20 talent in this class and could replace Sheldon Richardson down the road.
Tennessee Titans: Ahmmon Richards, WR, Miami FL
- The Titans get another weapon for Marcus Mariota to play next to Corey Davis at wide receiver. Ahmmon Richards makes a lot of sense here because Mariota will need more weapons if he wants to get past the wild card round again despite major improvements from the defense.
Dallas Cowboys: N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
- The Cowboys the 6-4 220 lb N'Keal Harry. Harry looks like he's crisper with his route running then Courtland Sutton was at this point. Dallas making the playoffs, keeping Jason Garrett, and getting a receiver with Harry's talent at 22 is a best case scenario for them this season.
Atlanta Falcons: Dre'Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State
- Atlanta is taking a defensive tackle in this draft after negleting the position in 2017. Dre'Mont Jones would be an awesome addition here.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
- Jacksonville will win the AFC South, but something tells me Blake Bortles does so bad in the wild card game that he ends up getting replaced. Brock Osweiler got replaced after getting the Texans to the Divisional Round. Drew Lock is the top quarterback on the board despite some of his issues with accuracy and progressions.
Houston Texans: Beau Benzschwael, RG, Wisconsin
- The Texans add more to their offensive line in the 2019 NFL Draft despite a strong rookie season from Rankin. Beau Benzschawel gets picked by Houston after the Texans go into Jacksonville and knock the Jaguars out of the playoffs.
Green Bay Packers: Anthony Johnson, WR, Buffalo
- Green Bay gets Randall Cobb's replacement here since Cobb is a Free Agent in 2019. Anthony Johnson runs a 4.43 40-time and can run all kinds of routes. Johnsn is the cousin of Jadeveon Clowney and probably could have declared for the 2018 NFL Draft and been a first round pick.
Kansas City Chiefs: Michael Jackson, CB, Miami FL
- Kansas City will be so thrilled that they moonwalk up to the podium if Michael Jackson out of Miami FL is still on the board at 27 after losing Marcus Peters. Mahomes is due for a big year and I think he can get the Chiefs back to where they were two years ago by getting Kansas City to the divisional round.
Green Bay Packers: Mitch Hyatt, LT, Clemson
- The Packers grab some offensive line depth here at 28. Mitch Hyatt sucked last year, but he could bounce back into the late first round if he puts everything together in 2018.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Terrell Lewis, 3-4 LOLB, Alabama
- Pittsburgh may not be able to keep both T.J. Watt and Budd Dupree long-term. Drafting Lewis allows them to reload with another 3-4 outside linebacker for depth off the edge.
Los Angeles Rams: Devin White, 3-4 MLB, LSU
- Scouts have told me that this is a much weaker inside linebacker class then last year. The one linebaker who is worthy of a late first rounder at this point is Devin White out of LSU who is a guy scouts aren't raving about constantly like most people in the media are. Plus, he's the perfect replacement to Alec Ogletree.
New England Patriots: Chauncey Gardner, CB, Florida
- The Patriots use their pick at 31 on a cornerback. Which is what they should have done in 2018. Chauncey Garner can play cornerback on either side, strong safety, or free safety with his versatility.
Philadelphia Eagles: Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
- Philadelphia gets another running back to develop. Bryce Love is a first round running back. I also believe he's getting overhyped to a degree because I don't think he will remain the best running back in the draft by the end of the year despite being the odds on Heisman favorite right now.
