I love me some Larry Fitzgerald . . . love him so much, I even watched him play golf this weekend at Pebble Beach, just to see if he could repeat his 2018 Pro-Am Title! This man has been the ultimate professional for 15 years (1,303 receptions, 16,279 yards, 116 TD's) and recently announced he was returning to the Cardinals for a 16th season. Last year's rookie sensation Christian Kirk (43 receptions, 590 yards, 3 TD's in 12 games) is recovering nicely from his broken foot, but the remaining 7 WR's on the Arizona roster combined for 46 receptions, 482 yards, and 2 TD's.

Kelvin Harmon has been the Alpha Dog for the Wolfpack over the past 3 years,. recording 177 receptions, 2,665 yards, and 16 TD's. He exhibits a strong vertical push out of his release to open things up underneath, and is able to sink his hips and change directions smoothly at his size. Definitely a hands catcher, as Harmon is able to pluck and squeeze the football tightly away from his frame. It's never too early to surround Josh Rosen with more weapons!

    Reach/Value:     +10
Height:

I know most Colts' fans are in agreement when I say: 'I miss Vontae Davis' because we could almost always count on him for a number of key plays throughout each game. If Indy can land a guy like Trayvon Mullen, I believe the already young-and-much-improved-secondary could become downright nasty. Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore were exceptional for Indy last season, but I think Mullen would vault to the top of the depth chart in his rookie season. His length, coverage skills, and physicality make him a near sure-fire starter from Day One and should find himself matched up against the best from opposing offenses.

Were that to happen, the Colts would have one of the deepest, most experienced (and most talented) secondary units in the NFL. The competition amongst 4 players that already have quality starts and playing time from a year ago (Desir, Moore, Quincy Wilson, and Nate Hairston) would create a stellar brotherhood to help propel an emerging defensive force in the AFC.

The Colts'secondary has leaped from the 29th-best unit for interceptions (8 picks) to a tie at 15th-best (13 INT's) last season, to a tie at 9th-best (15 snatches) over the course of 2018. With additional pressure up front (to be helped with the RD1 selection of Dre'Mont Jones), Indianapolis should only improve defensively from where it ended the 2018 campaign.
35 Oakland
Nasir Adderley
    Delaware
    S
    Reach/Value:     +10

A fast rising prospect, look for Adderley to be in consideration when the Raiders pick at #24. While Karl Joseph came on at the end of the season and surprised the coaches- perhaps earning a 2019 starting spot in the process- neither Reggie Nelson or Erik Harris represents a viable starter in the back of the D. A skilled pass defender with 10 picks over the last 3 seasons, Adderley is the perfect pairing with the more physical Joseph. If Kelechi Osemele is released, don't be surprised if a prospect like Martez Ivey receives consideration. Even with receiver already addressed, Marquise Brown could be a target as well.
36 San Francisco
Oshane Ximines
    Old Dominion
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -21
Height:

Though he is the eighth EDGE player taken in this mock draft, Old Dominion's Oshane Ximenes ranked as the third-best edge rusher on Pro Football Focus. With a PFF grade of 91.7, the former Monarch recorded a pressure on an impressive 16% of his pass rush snaps.

While Ximenes may not have the explosive speed or strength of some of the players taken before him, he is a maximum effort player with the ability and willingness to grow. With Deforest Buckner and RD1 pick Quinnen Williams creating havoc on the inside, Ximenes would be an instant fit for the Niners' outside pass rush rotation with Ronald Blair and Cassius Marsh, ensuring opposing QBs stay under pressure all game long.

Zach Allen

    DL5T
    Reach/Value:     +10
Height:
6'4"
Weight:

Dave Gettleman is an "old school" GM. He's 67 years old and his NFL traditional value system weighs heavily on running the ball, stopping the run, and rushing the passer. Last year, Gettleman selected Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick in the Draft and followed with Will Hernandez, a mauling interior lineman in RD2.

In his season-ending press conference, Gettleman made it clear that the defense must be improved. Big Blue finished 23rd in points allowed (dead last in the NFCE) and were tied for the second-fewest sacks (30) in the NFL. Zach Allen could make an immediate impact for the Giants and their beleaguered defensive line. Allen is one of the most productive defensive players in Boston College history, racking up 40.5 tackles for loss and 16.5 sacks over his final three seasons. He has the size and strength that Gettleman craves and values.
38 Jacksonville
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside
    Stanford
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +20
Height:
6'2"
Weight:

One of the best value picks in the draft, as Jacksonville snags the 18th-best player on our Big Board at pick #38! Stanford WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is big, fast, and can bring down contested catches. He is an immediate matchup nightmare in the red zone. He also has the speed to work all areas of the field, and his physical prowess gives Jacksonville a dynamic threat on the outside that they don't currently have.
39 Tampa Bay
Martez Ivey
    Florida
    OG
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'5"
Weight:

The Bucs added OT Jonah Williams in RD1, and follow up with the draft's best O-Guard in Martez Ivey here is the 2nd. The team's highest-rated lineman is Ali Marpet (#8 per PFF), but over on the right side is Caleb Benenoch --rated #73 among NFL OG peers. Adding Ivey (along with Williams) will markedly upgrade the OL product from the 2018 version. The team will need to add a RB in the draft. If they could just find an above-average producer, that will also contribute to improved Offensive output. A review of this mock draft shows that RBs are not being coveted early by DraftTek's other team analysts; the Bucs are able to land FIU's Devin Singletary in RD3.

If the Bucs use their first three picks to significantly upgrade their productive-but-flawed 2018 offense, the Bucs can put more points on the board, forcing opposing offenses to keep up, becoming one-dimensional in the process. The table flips, and the narrow losses of 2018 will become wins in 2019.
40 Buffalo
Kaleb McGary
    Washington
    OT
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'7"
Weight:
321



The Bills' competition in Free Agency and the draft for the services of the big uglies might be the Bucs, taking Jonah Williams in RD1 and Martez Ivey here in RD2. The Bills could be parting ways with as many as three OL this offseason, having already bid adieu to their position coach, Juan Castillo. I hope the Bills bring in a free-agent vet at LG who creates synergy with Dion Dawkins, as well as a Center with Pro-Bowl upside (Matt Paradis? Mitch Morse?). Maybe they'll remove the Millstone around their neck at RT, as well. To fill that opening, they could use this 6-8, 325-pound guy.

Kaleb McGary's life hasn't been easy. He was a farm boy, bankruptcy forced his family to leave their farm, the house they rehabbed burned, then his father got MS. Well, McGary's luck is about to change.

In the post-season, McGary has looked impressive at just about every turn. The Bills tend to draft freak athletes like Allen and Edmunds, and McGary's mammoth physique and agility will be a slam-dunk, especially after they see his Combine results. At worst, he's better than Mills out of the gate.

As I mentioned in the first round, the Broncos will put plenty of thought into selecting a quarterback at 10, but that doesn't mean their night is over after they make the tenth selection. If they do pass on Kyler Murray or Drew Lock, they will need to monitor their status throughout the rest of the opening round. If one or both make it past Washington at #15, the Broncos need to start making calls about possibly getting back into RD1. I would not trust them getting all the way to this pick. With teams like the Jaguars and Giants still ahead of you in the second, as well as a team like the Chargers in the late first who could be ready to find Rivers' future successor, the Broncos will likely have to move up to get their guy. Lock has some similarities to Josh Allen from last year, in that he has a big arm that needs refining. While Allen didn't slip, Lock could because of added growing pains due to the system he played in at Missouri. Because of that, the Broncos should covet that fifth-year option that comes with being a first-round selection, and move up for him if he gets into the ladder part of Day One.

With a new toy on defense taken in RD1 in Devin White, the Bengals now can set their sights on keeping their speedy LB clean. A two-gapping tackle like Jerry Tillery would do just that. Tillery is more about tools right now than he is the sum of those parts, but he flashes the ability to slip blocks and penetrate as well as the power to hold gaps for his LBs. Tillery does not lack, however, in strength or effort in his game, as his relentless power consistently overwhelmed blockers throughout his career as a Golden-Domer. Daniel Jeremiah recently said that a smart, high-effort player's floor is already known, and that player will hardly ever be a bust barring injury because effort and smarts will maximize his skillset. Jerry Tillery is that type of player, with somewhat-limited upside but a high floor.

Marquise Brown

    WRS
    Reach/Value:     -12
Height:

The tone of this draft for the Lions needs to be centered around taking explosive playmakers. With the RD1 selection of LSU CB Greedy Williams, the Lions do just that, solidifying the number two cornerback spot opposite of Slay. With this selection for the third week and counting, we have the Lions taking Oklahoma speed demon, wide receiver Marquise Brown.

It's no secret that the Lions lack speed across the field on offense. Sure, Marvin Jones is a crafty receiver and Kenny Golladay can make plays downfield, but the Lions don't truly have a speedster at the position, at least not someone who can be that "lightning in a bottle" to stretch the defense. Brown is already starting to draw comparisons to Tyreek Hill. Albeit a lofty comparison, speed don't lie and it's also one thing you just can't teach or coach. Brown should be a high-level player that creates an immediate impact for the Lions' oftentimes-sluggish offense. He's no Calvin Johnson, but Stafford seemed to play his best when he was able to chuck it deep. Brown could be a piece to that puzzle in fixing the franchise QB.

The Packers may be looking to move on from both of last season's Opening-Day starters at Safety. Former RD1 selection HaHa Clinton-Dix was shipped away at the trade deadline for a pick in RD4, while Kentrell Brice will become a RFA this March after a season marred by injuries, blown assignments, and missed tackles. If the Packers plan to keep Tramon Williams at FS in 2019, a downhill player like Washington's Taylor Rapp could fit nicely into Mike Pettine's defensive plans. Rapp was an impact player for the Huskies, racking up 7 INTs, 6 sacks, 8.5 TFL, 2 fumbles forced, and 3 fumbles recovered over his three-year career.
45 Atlanta
Andre Dillard
    Washington St
    OT
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'5"
Weight:

The primary focus of new Offensive Coordinator Dirk Koetter will be reconstructing the right side of the offensive line. Wes Schweizer at Left Guard could be replaced, but the real issues are on the right side. Brandon Fusco is coming off an injury, and he didn't play especially well before hitting IR. Ryan Schraeder's play was simply awful, especially against speed rushers. The only knock on Andre Dillard is whether he can play right away at Tackle, as his functional strength needs work. He has the agility and athleticism to thrive in a zone blocking system like Atlanta's, and could perhaps start at guard and work his way out to tackle later in his career. Dillard is a LT prospect, but given the way defensive fronts now bring speed from both edges, adding that sort of talent to the right side would make sense.

Juan Thornhill

    Reach/Value:     +8

As discussed regarding the team's RD1 pick, the Redskins are in dire need of help in the secondary. I expect a defensive back to be the biggest signing of the offseason for them, and even if they add two DBs in Free Agency, they will still look to add talent in the Draft. Juan Thornhill is a talented, multi-faceted player that reminds me of Devin McCourty. He isn't a burner that will reach a sideline throw from the opposite hash, but Thornhill is smart and can effectively play in multiple positions. With the variable offensive sets in the modern NFL, every team would benefit from a chess-piece in the secondary that can match up with inside receivers/backs, as well as bracket outside receivers, and Thornhill can do just that. A program favorite coming out of UVA, Thornhill's energy, as well as study of game tape and preparedness on game day was reminiscent of recently-cut DJ Swearinger...yet hopefully Thornhill arrives in Washington without the baggage #36 brought along with him.

Panther fans haven't exactly been thrilled with the results of the Dontari Poe experiment the Panthers recently undertook. To add depth to the rotation and to challenge for the starting spot, the Panthers draft Isaiah Buggs with the 47th pick in the draft. Buggs has dominant hands and the ability to fold opposing guards like a cheap wallet. He is the true definition of a 1-technique defensive tackle but will not be MIA on passing downs as he works in a healthy combination of rips and push-pulls to disarm blockers and get right in the face of the quarterback. His ability to move the pocket backward should command double teams enough that it will give the rest of the Panthers edge-rushers one-on-one matchups they should be able to exploit with ease. He isn't quite as far along in run defense as teams might like, but throw in some quality coaching, and he should be able to make the most of his potential and be a 3 down linemen on Sundays.

If in fact the Dolphins select Kyler Murray or some other QB in RD1, it is customary to follow up with either line help or security blanket targets. In this mock, all the TEs are still available, so Fant, Hockenson or Irv Jr. are in play here. Brian Flores will need to figure out what to do with 2018 RD2'er Mike Gesicki, who underwhelmed as a rook (22-202-0TD). On the line, it looks like many of the top OT prospects have been picked over, with Miami just missing out on Kaleb McGary and Andre Dillard, Next up is Yodny Cajuste who has a late RD3 grade. That's reachy for a guy who may need a year or two to become a quality starter.

So OG makes sense. Multi-disciplined Dalton Risner is a credible option, but the DRAFTSIM model goes with Chris Lindstrom who presents a modestly better value (per our Big Board). He will plug right in, giving Kyler Murray the protection needed to make plays.

I passed on Risner here because I have been coveting a left tackle for the Browns instead of a right. However, the Browns' recent signing of Kareem Hunt makes me think that we may see a much more balanced attack in Cleveland next season. That means a right tackle could be a higher priority than I initially thought. Considering new coach Freddie Kitchens is a former running back and tight end coach, that shouldn't surprise me, and I will start keeping a closer eye on those guys moving forward. Instead, I went with the tall corner from Penn State. Denzel Ward had a sensational rookie year but is a bit slender to handle some of the bigger receivers in the league. Oruwariye is a lengthy player that disrupts receivers early in the route with his long arms and physical nature. That would be a welcomed addition to this secondary that still has holes to fill.

Going for the offensive lineman in RD1 left the Vikings with plenty of options in RD2, as Gerald Willis III, Noah Fant, and Devin Bush all make a lot of sense for this team. Kyle Rudolph is obviously a fan favorite at TE, but he's become very costly and may end up a cap casualty, opening the door for Rick Spielman to find his replacement among an extremely strong and deep tight end class. Devin Bush could quickly help make up for the likely loss of Anthony Barr to Free Agency, as well. In this CMD, the Vikes take a player in Gerald Willis with a bit of a checkered college career, but also has all the tools to be a steal here on Day 2. Many believe that a strong defensive line coach (I see you, Andre Patterson) could be all that Willis needs to reach his immense ceiling. This could be a perfect fit.

This is a tough spot, since Tennessee should address the Edge at some point, given that Orakpo won't be back next season, and Morgan may be gone as well. However, given the way the board has played out so far, there isn't a great Edge option available at this point. So instead, why not grab DraftTek's Top-Rated TE in Noah Fant, who could come off the board in RD1 come April?

Fant is an athletic TE who can make plays at all levels of the field. The Tight End room may get a little crowded in Nashville, with Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith already in place, but the value Fant provides in this slot and what he can provide on the field is worth taking the swing on this pick.

    Reach/Value:     -14

Devin Bush fits the new standard for the run-and-hit inside linebacker who can flow sideline to sideline as well as cover down the field. The Steelers not only need to fill this role, but they need to look for a leader to take over the defense (and the green dot) from Vince Williams in a couple years. Bush has stacked a couple years of great production at Michigan (Career: 172 Tackles, 10 sacks, 11 PBU). He plays with intelligence and is a bit of a chippy tone-setter. While he excels at the run-and-hit aspects of the game, his smaller frame limits his ability to take on blocks and stay clean in the backfield. The team will have to weigh his definite upside versus the scheme limitations his size presents.

Philadelphia's need of RB help was obvious after watching the Eagles fall from 4.5 YPC in 2017, down to 3.9 YPC in 2018 (2.9 YPC in playoffs). I was AWFULLY tempted to take Josh Jacobs in RD1, as he is a true three-down franchise RB, whereas the guys available at this point are more "RB-By-Committee" kind of guys. A guy that has grown on me the more I watch him is Iowa State's David Montgomery. He gets dinged by some for having a 4.7 YPC...average for a college back. Let's not compare apples to oranges here though: Bama's Damien Harris (who I passed on here) was running behind O-Linemen that he'll be high-fiving after games on Sundays...Montgomery was running behind guys that will be selling cars and insurance Mon-Fri. In fact, besides WR Hakeem Butler, you won't find ANY Iowa St. players in DraftTek's Top 400 Players . Watch THIS as Iowa State's O-Line is routinely dominated by Oklahoma, yet Montgomery still makes plays. With good receiving and pass pro skills, he can play on 3rd downs, as well.

After weeks of Love in H-Town, why not more? If Julian is on the board in RD2, the Texans must pounce to fill an extreme position of need. Greedy, Baker, and Murphy are regularly considered the top-tier CBs this draft. Based on game tape alone, Love should be included in that group. Julian averages more pass breakups than all the CBs above, as well as every other CB the past decade...literally! Older video but a good look. ~CME, Texans Analyst

The Texans double down on Deshaun insurance with the selection of Dalton Risner here in RD2. Risner brings versatility value to the table - he played all three line positons at Kansas State. He started at Center as a freshman, earning freshman All-America accolades. He finished up his career at Right Tackle during his last two seasons, here's a film breakdown on Risner from ProFootball Focus.com, they highlight Riz squaring off against Montez Sweat in a game versus Mississippi State, giving up just one pressure to the presumed RD1 edge rusher.

Risner fits in well with the Texans' community-service oriented players, here's a KCTV news vid highlighing his "Rise Up" foundation. We project Risner starting straight-away at OG for the Texans, but don't be surprised to see him at OC or ROT suring the season.

Here is another case of best player matching a potential need given an possible retirement for New England. Rob Gronkowski is known to be considering retirement, and the conventional wisdom is we have already seen the last game he will ever play. As a result, the Patriots need a new passing weapon from the Tight End position.

Enter Irv Smith Jr., debatably the best tight end available in the draft. In addition, Belichick has shown an affinity over the years for drafting players from schools where he believes in the coaching staff. He has tapped Greg Schiano's Rutgers alumni many times, as well as Urban Meyer's Florida products. I think Nick Saban qualifies.

It will be interesting to see how the Eagles address their O-Line this offseason. The linemen the Eagles usually draft fall into one of two categories: the "Versatile Group" (usually guys that are better in the interior, but have tackle experience), OR, guys with "Legit Left Tackle" skills. There are several guys like Cody Ford, David Edwards, or Michael Deiter they may like...guys that may not fit the prototypical NFL Left Tackle mold, but tough guys that you know you could plug anywhere else with little bust potential. Then there are guys like Greg Little and Andre Dillard...perhaps higher bust-risks, but who offer the tantalizing potential of becoming the all-important Franchise Left Tackle. In my opinion, Yodny Cajuste has a foot in both of those camps: he certainly has the length, athleticism, hand work, and mobility teams look for in a Left Tackle, yet he's also a punishing run blocker with a nasty attitude that would work well at Guard as a Plan B should he not cut it on the edge.

Aside from beefing up the defensive side of the ball, the consensus among Blue Nation is that Indy needs a top-caliber wideout that can use his size and physicality to help do at least two things: move the chains and pull the double-teams away from T.Y. Hilton. The third component would be to score TDs, but hey, getting consistent production on those first two items in his rookie year should help make that happen by the end of the season!

Iowa State's Hakeem Butler is a combo-wideout in the sense that he has all the traits one could envision a super-stud receiver to have: Size, agility, ability to high-point and snatch the ball from defenders. Butler has the potential become a force all over the field if -and it's a big if- he can begin to improve his footwork and burst off the LOS. I believe that if the Colts' have Reggie Wayne come in as an Assistant Receivers' Coach, Butler would get the tutelage required to take his game to the next level.

Butler doesn't need to have 4.2 speed to be effective and wouldn't have the pressure to score and dominate the game immediately. Hilton (and the potential returning TE tandem of Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle) is sufficient to give QB Andrew Luck some competent targets. With injuries to Hilton and Doyle, combined with playing time for relative unknowns in 2018, the Colts were still the 6th-best in passing offense last season. Indy can afford to allow Butler to learn, "grow" and emerge throughout the 2019 season --ultimately paying some sweet dividends-- while still forcing defenses to think twice about doubling up on Hilton.

Hey, Cowboy Fans . . . what are we going to do if we DON'T sign Earl Thomas in the off-season? Well, down in the Swamp in Gator-Chomp Land, there's a dandy ball-hawk (9 Int, 286 yards, 3 TD's, and 12 PD in 3 years) by the name of Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.

Florida played him in a lot of man coverage in the slot or underneath coverage in zone during the 2018 season. Chauncey displayed his deep-zone ball skills, flashing high-point and tracking ability in 2017. During his 3 years at Florida, he showed outstanding versatility . . .

When a need and a prospect align in perfect harmony in the NFL Draft, it can be a beautiful thing. Chargers' ILB Denzel Perryman had a defined role controlling the middle against the run and helping out in coverage, until he suffered a major knee injury at midseason. A total bummer. Perryman's impending Free Agency and chronic injury history likely mean he moves on, and Buffalo's Khalil Hodge looks like just the kind of draft choice to come fill his spot.

Hodge is a tackling machine, logging more than 400 stops, 21 for losses, during three years at the helm of Buffalo's defense. He brings some developed skills, has adequate speed, and is a whiz at shedding blocks and reading running plays. He is able to remain on the field for passing downs and is a high-motor leader on the field. Plucking Hodge here would be a great move forward for the Charger D.

Mitch Morse, who coined the phrase, "Whatever you drank, [Chiefs fans], they need to double it" after the Chiefs playoff win against the Colts, has been named the 40th-best available free agents by Pro Football Focus. The University of Missouri grad has been a starter for KC his entire career and played in each playoff game for the Chiefs the last four years. Unfortunately, Morse missed 14 games in the past two seasons due to injury. The Chiefs are ready to let Morse seek a payday elsewhere.

Using the best-player-available scenario, GM Brett Veach passes up the defensive need and finds his replacement for Morse in this SIM. Elgton Jenkins pancaked opponents on a regular basis in college. He is a unique center who has the size to handle bull rushes and the quickness to fire outside to the second level on run plays. Jenkins is a plug-and-play anchor at Center who could possibly be taken in RD1. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller lists Jenkins as his favorite NFL prospect at the Center position.

Kaden Smith will not be the next Jimmy Graham, and that's probably just fine right now with HC Sean Payton. The Saints need consistency at TE and a guy that can catch passes when sitting down underneath zone defenses, breaking loose up the seam. The Stanford Cardinal TE hauled in 70 catches for 1,049 yards and seven TDs in 20 games during his two-year collegiate career (he sat out mulitple games in 2018 with a foot injury, but still compiled a 47-reception, 635-yard, 2-TD line).

So maybe TE isn't going to end up as the top pick for the Saints...but it certainly is a top need.

In 2018, TE Ben Watson was targeted 35 times and amassed 400 yards receiving and 2 TD's. Josh Hill and Dan Arnold combined for 28 receptions, over 300 yards, and a TD apiece. Those aren't numbers and stats that typify a high-octane offense that has been the norm for "Who Dats" during the Payton-Brees era.

During the 2015 and '16 seasons, the Saints led the league in passing offense. In 2017 they were 5th, and last season they slid down to 12th overall. The irony? The Saints were two outlandish plays away from a Super Bowl berth the past two seasons. Perhaps it illustrates a subtle offensive philosophy change in the Big Easy. Power-passing stats don't always get you to a Super Bowl. Of course, neither does crappy officiating. (Oops...just couldn't help myself.)

The coolest name in this year's draft belongs to Rock Ya-Sin, a big, physical playmaking corner. He clocked one of the faster times during Senior Bowl practices and held his own against the top receivers who received invites to the NFL tryout. A transfer to Temple, he's a poor man's Greedy Williams and a steal in RD2 for a CB-needy team like the Chiefs. To quote Nate Taylor from The Athletic, "The Chiefs secondary went into a free fall ever since they realized that David Amerson was not the guy they thought he was."

As Tom Brady continues to age into his 40's, the Patriots need to surround him with as many weapons as possible. As it stands now, the Patriots need more receivers, as it has become a very shallow position on the roster. Brady simply could not get on the same page with anyone in the Super Bowl other than Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski.

Deebo Samuel is an electric talent with the ball in his hands. He can easily change directions without violent cuts or gearing down. He'd add breakaway speed, something sorely missing from this offense in 2018.
